As the title suggests, this post will be covering Game of Thrones, specifically the quality of the armed (in some cases, hired) help. If you’re not caught up with the sixth season, then be warned that I will be talking spoilery plot points that had sweeping political ramifications.


Prince Doran: It is fortunate for me that I have a cadre of vigilant guards to protect me from spoilery plot points with sweeping political ramifications.
Ellaria: Oh Doran! You’re adorably naive.

Usually, I’d say that the only problem with having guards on Game of Thrones is not having enought of them…

This post will be covering details from the fifth season of HBO’s Game of Thrones (and therefore all the seasons leading up to that as well.) Should you be behind on your TV watching (you troglodyte) then I recommend you not read this post.

(Others might recommend you not read my posts for other reasons. I do try to be entertaining, though.)


He had better be entertaining. Or a spear might be thrown into his face. Which would entertain us…

Specifically, this post will be talking about Dorne, the southernmost of the Seven Kingdoms and possibly the weakest storyline in the fifth season. Or was it? (It probably was.)

I’m taking a pro-Dorne stance, or at least I’m going to try and find the silver lining in that dark cloud. It’s what I do.


This post will be discussing plot points from Season Four of HBO’s Game of Thrones. If you’re not caught up on the series (or haven’t read at least up through A Storm of Swords, the third book in A Song of Ice and Fire by George RR Martin) then I respectfully ask you to step away from your computer, and either read the books or watch the series. Then please come back.

Because right now, I’ll be dropping some mad spoilery details.


You Have Not Watched the Fourth Season of this Game of Thrones? You Have Not Seen Me? My Heart Weeps in My Chest from the Sadness…

Seven Hells yes, Prince Oberyn. The Red Viper. Prince of Dorne. That dude’s mostly awesome.



Season Four Game of Thrones has now finished up. I’ll start writing some new GoT articles soon, but here’s a backup post I wrote as part of my previously published Defending Joffrey article, with some observations on the End-of-Season-Three political landscape in Westeros.

Even I'm Shocked How Long This Is

This post will be talking details about the end of the third season of HBO’s excellent series Game of Thrones. Therefore, if you are not caught up, please don’t spoil yourself by reading this. Go watch the series (or better yet, read the books too) before reading anything here.

Joffrey-house-baratheon-30574390-1273-613 I Don’t Have a 100% Approval Rating? I’m Not Killing Enough People Then!

On my main blog, I have an article on the young king of Westeros, Joffrey Baratheon. In that post, I make a claim that at the end of Season Three of HBO’s Game of Thrones, Joffrey has a 40% approval rating. How could I make that claim?

Well, I totally made up that number, that’s how. But, there was a method I followed.

And when I say “approval”, what I kind of mean is “support.” Look, just bear with me.
