Default You got your Game of Thrones in my Princess Bride!

Fair warning that there are spoilers for the first season/book and a subtle reference to a critical plot event in Storm of Swords that I think will pass unnoticed by the TV-only crowd (personally, I think it's still debatable whether they slated RW for season 3; they might just do that other one).

This is not the book you're looking for:


If only they could've also mixed in a voiceover of Grandpa finishing book 5 and then telling Fred to learn to live with disappointment when he asks for book 6.

I arrived late to the GOT party but am loving it. I was laid up for several weeks and family and friends gave me several different TV shows on DVD. This is one that I watched both seasons straight through.

I thought about The Princess Bride a few times, but also drew parallels with a lot of Shakespeare, particularly Macbeth. Between Game of Thrones and Sons Of Anarchy, I'm catching up on Shakespeare's work.

When I got to RW in the novel, I threw the book across the room... and I can't wait for HBO to get to it!
