Tywin Lannister's Dinner Party

Tywin Lannister's Dinner Party.

It's from season 3, which some of us won't see until next year's DVD box set comes out, but I think it's safe to say there are no spoilers. And that it's hilarious.

A Game of Votes

April 26th, 2012

Some of the parallels drawn in Game of Votes1 are just so good.

Joffrey Baratheon = Newt Gingrich

That's not a perfect fit – on the basis of what he showed us in season 1,2 I don't think Joffrey sees himself as much of a historian or intellectual – but the elements of the comparison that work really work.

  1. NB: contains some spoilers for Game of Thrones season 2. Nothing major, I don't think, but there's a picture of one character we heard about but never met in season 1, and a couple of allusions are made to not completely surprising plot developments.
  2. I'm following the show as it comes out on DVD, so it's going to be a long while before I find out how Joffrey changes as he gets comfortable on the Iron Throne.
