Game Of Thrones! First Watch Tweet Along!

A Challenge was set during Episode 37 of The ODDcast PODcast. a Challenge that consisted of Myself and Will giving in and watching shows and films that the other has constantly dismissed. This meant I would finally succumb to watching the first 4 episodes of HBO’s “Game of Thrones” whilst Will would sit down to watch the entire movie “Anchorman” and a few Episodes of The First Series of “Extras” even though he hates Ricky Gervais with a passion.

So on Wednesday Night I sat down to watch the First Episode of the First Season of “Game of Thrones”. Now I am not a massive fan of medievel-esque/Fanstasy/Mythical/ Swords and Sorcery shows, so this show didn’t float my boat one bit from the premise. The whole show that reeked of “Lord of the Rings” and “300” put me off abit.

I was sent a link a few weeks back from Will that showed a compilation of death scenes in the Show and to be honest It improved my opinion of the show. Also I found out a lot of scenes involved Naked women and Tits!………….Why do they never show these bits in the trailers? Im a Man! I would rather see Boobs and Fannies over Swords and Dwarves!

I sat down ready to watch this show with high pre-conceptions and ready to blast it for it’s boring narrative and slow structure. I decided the only way I could remember how I felt throughout would be to write my thoughts down throughout, and with the beauty of the Internet I decided to Tweet Along as I watch and share my views scene by scene.

Here is a Transcipt of the enrite Tweeting session during Episode One, Season One of “Game of Thrones”
