All About the Thrones

Things that are not dragons.

I smiled. Great series tough.

"supporting role"
I laughed.

Don't really understand HOW you could have missed the dragon eggs when they made such a big deal of presenting them at the 'wedding'. All those cracks about Drogo's bum were rather cheeky

It is good to have a rigid standard of quality when evaluating your art of choice that truly focuses on the important things.

And yes, Momoa... mmmm....

Love it.

The comic that is, not the arse.

Ohohoho, will shallowness ever stop being funny! :)

Alright women, drooling over Jason Momoa's arse I can understand :)

So that's why the show is so popular!

Making Drogo's posterior the butt of all these puns is really scraping the bottom of the barrel.

I don't get it. Where, pray tell, were you promised dragons? Here's a spoiler for you - no actual dragons until the season finale. Or you could have, you know, read the books like everyone is supposed to anyway... ;)

Having to second this. Look, I hate to enter Comic Book Guy mode, but where were dragons promised again? I thought this was pretty obviously a low-fantasy world. No extraordinary displays of magic, no fantastic beasts and monsters, no high heroics in exotic locales; just human beings having human experiences.

The series is the best television I've seen since forever. The production value is through the roof and you can tell the creators loved the original story.

And yes dude has a tight ass.

Truly outdone yourself. You guys are fast overtaking my love of Stolen Pixels.

<_> Games really don't have enough dragons.
I mean Dragon Age 1+2 have dragon
right in the name and Origin only had 3 full grown ones ( not counting DLC ), and Dragon Age 2
only had one full grown, 2 mature, some young, and a shit load of dragonlings ( which don't cont).
Its like Yahtzee said, we fought more racists than dragons.

Which is why Im not watching it, though Im glad a size-able production value went into it.

no, wait, that isnt a pun, IM NOT LIKE HANKMAN!

I know I've had that same expression ever since I discovered the whole universe is made of antelope shit.

Yay! Somebody else has seen Sharpe!

Whats with women and man butt? I get why men like the women's gluteus maximus,
but I can't see why they would care about ours....o_o unless something was horribly wrong with it.

It's the only remotely sexy part of a man's body they can drool over (while we're fully clothed, at least).

It's not like men really have much going for them in the first place when it comes to the sexy. Have you ever looked in a mirror? We're ugly. I honestly don't believe God could have possibly made Adam before Eve. If anything, s/he likely spent the first six days expertly crafting an incredibly beautiful woman and then on the seventh day thought, "oh crap, I'm supposed to be taking the day off. Quick, get the preliminary sketches. They're a little rough and all I have are spare parts, but I can whip something up in an hour." And man was born.

You're doing yourself a disservice. It is a good adaptation that does an amazing job between staying true to the source material while at the same time making it work in a different medium. And the books aside, it's simply a good show. Seriously, go watch the first two or three episodes, it's pretty great.

Me: I see...but....what about the face?
Or perhaps that comes into calculation BEHIND our butts?

Wrong :P It just STARTS at a human scale and then layers all that stuff in really gradually.

At present in the book series, we've got dragons, necromancers, ice zombies, sorceresses, ninja shadow assassins, etc.

That's what makes ASoIaF such a great series. By denying you that instant gratification and giving it time to lay groundwork, he allows it all to actually have an impact, and produce real awe.

Whats an ice zombie? A zombie who died of frost bite before becoming undead?

Whatever the white walkers are man, I don't know :P. They freeze people, they turn people into zombies. They're ice zombies.

maybe there's a Dovakin hiding & Killing & stealing all the dragon related stuff?

I support this message. Apart from our bottoms, the only thing we can claim sex-appeal for is perhaps our stomach, if trained right.

I don't understand this at all, I guess I'll have to watch an episode also what is this Game of Thrones?

These puns are so assinine I wish I could wipe the slate clean and forget I ever read them.

OT: Who promised dragons? The title doesn't say anything about dragons, and they aren't supposed to show up until the end of the first book. I can guarantee that no one promised you dragons.

Ohhhh.... Supporting Yeah I see what you did there...

hehehehe... Funny......

Shoulders. That is all.

Who's with me?!

For fairness' sake and discussion value, I still found Drogo an extremely attractive man even with his trousers and that waistband thing on, so it has to be something else, right? Can't discount nicely chiseled pecs either.

Nah, men were the prototype. He created us, and thought it was good. He then thought, "You know what this could use? Tits." And lo, on the 6th day, God created tits.

"Dragon Eggs"

Nice work this week, I hope to see more of Nathan Fillion as a running gag too XD
