Iain Glen Four Times


I wish I had a Ser Jorah Mormont to follow me around with weary puppy-dog eyes. Everybody still watching A Game of Thrones? As someone who's read the books, I can't believe they ended this week's episode where they did! I won't get into spoilers but I expected at least a couple more mind-busting minutes to the episode. Still though, they visualized that scene better than could have even hoped. So spectacularly creepy - even though I was sitting on the edge of the sofa waiting for it, my jaw dropped. Literally. Right onto the floor. And there it lay til this day.

The show, visually-speaking, is incredible this year - much better if you ask me than last. I'm sure it's because it's a hit and HBO is giving them a real budget now, but there's a sense of scope that was missing from the first year, when things like the Dothraki Holy City and the big tournament at King's Landing seemed relatively puny.

I also watched the first episode of Veep last night, which I found hysterical; and I don't have any desire to wade into any of the angry back-and-forth that Girls appears to be generating but there is nothing making me laugh harder on TV these days. I am firmly entrenched in the "Lena Dunham is brilliant" camp, and am going to go off and google "stuff that gets up around the sides of condoms" right this second.

Googling pictures of Iain Glen led me here. I'm a BIG fan of Dany and Ser Jorah - I JUST WANT THEM TO BE HAPPY TOGETHER!! Hahaha
I finished reading the ASOIAF series a few months ago but am rereading A Storm of Swords coz it's my fav!
