Game of Thrones Abridged: "The Children" - Peter Dinklage Needs More Emmys

"The Children" - Peter Dinklage Needs More Emmys

In the season finale, Jon Snow ducks out to the store for some ice cream, Daenerys puts her dragons in a time-out, Bran and the gang get into a really intense LARPing session, and the Hound and Brienne of Tarth get into a bit of a tussle. Oh, and Tywin and Tyrion have a sensible conversation about their relationship as father and son.

Great episode, and a really funny series. Thanks!

Personally, this is how I'd abridge the first four seasons.

Season 1 - Lannisters win
Season 2 - Lannisters win
Season 3 - Lannisters win
Season 4 - C-c-combo Breaker!

Harsh judge there, harsher jury. Also, good finish and Dinklage does indeed need more emmys.

Spoiler warning season 4 is coming

Now that the season/series is over, will you abridge another show, Matt?
I know you're busy with other stuff, but these are very enjoyable

Thanks Matt, this has been a fun series to watch. Will you pick it back up in 10 months (or whatever it is?) when Season 5 launches?

I'm not exactly sure I'm looking forward to this next season, as I remember the books getting incredibly dull for a while.

Needs more wombats.

Mad doctor who experiments on dead bodies gets the perfect specimen, freshly poisoned. Nothing bad ever comes out of that. I will be watching the awards this year - Peter's gonna need a U-Haul to carry all his statues. With the odd 80s pop references I'm surprised you didn't come out with some Genesis. "You're no son of mine" PEW PEW!

Finally some Wombat! I'm happy now.

Nice one man. I liked this series a lot. Hope you come back for Season 5 buddy! You have a nice day too.

pretty hilarious the entire series, i give it 4.5 wombats out of 5!

I previously thought it was one very not funny show. Scince then much time has past and now i descided to give it one more chance. It stil was not a very funny show from my point of view. And then "trial by wombat" made me burst with laughter and made my whole day much better.

I guess, this is a funny show after all. Thanks a lot for a good mood!

Quite an enjoyable watch these last 3 months. Please come back for Season 5.

Technically, the Lannisters still win, only

die. The rest of them are arguably in better shape than they have been in seasons

If it wasn't for the caption below the vid, I would have assumed that Jon went up north to get assorted condoms (Plain? Strawberry? Magnum? I think Aussies/the Aussie adjacent have very different ice cream nomenclature than those of us from the States).

Oh Shae. There's no nice way to put it: she probably shouldn't have lied in the trial in order to get Tyrion executed, or banged his dad, or tried to knife Tyrion when he found out that she banged Tyrion's dad.

Also, poor Hound. He never should have tried to help Arya, because she's not a particularly good person.

Edit: Sidenote. I just realized that, given the discussion Jaime and Tyrion had about there being a name for killing pretty much everything, Tyrion forgot a very important one: pornicide. That is to say, killing a sex worker (porne being the ancient Greek term that roughly translates to prostitute).

Well, not that I didn't enjoy this series, but I am looking forward to video reviews, the kind of stuff I loved Matt Lees for back in his GamerTV days on youtube. Continue trucking on Mr. Lees, can't wait to see what you do next!

Also, I vote that Escapist sends Matt over to the gaming expos for a continuation of "Lunge-fests."

I am all for more of this. I hope Lees comes back for season 5, and even considers pulling a Hardwick and doing other series. Anyone else wanna see Walking Dead Abridged?

Baby Captain Cheese Dreams Is what I'm calling my next pet.

Well that was wonderful! Here's to season 5 and more wondrous adventures on the high seas and in the snowy waistlands

-M

Wonderful I hope for more or this in Season 5. Love the Zelda reference too.

Matt loving your work as always, I'll keep watching your youtube, and anything else you do.

Oh, and ESCAPIST!!! Keep Matt Lees around, give him money, we want him to stay!!

Can't wait til S5 and it's abridged.

P.S. you almost owe me a new keyboard for the Trial by Wombat, you win all the internets for that.

You know he only had an Escapist contract for this one show? All his video game related content will be happening on his Patreon funded Youtube channel

Please tell me you're coming back for Season 5, I don't know what I will do without this series in my life ... probably wander off to die an glorious death by wombat I expect ...

Shenanigans I say! I was looking forward to a snark off between him, Jim, and Yahtzee!!! Ah well, off to youtube...

Not a big fan of GoT but I enjoyed the heck out of your show. Hope you'll be back for the next season. :)

Season 4 - Lannisters win
