Game of Thrones (Tyrion Lannister)

250px-Second_sons_TyrionI love this character. He might be little in stature, but he character is big with skills. This guy  Peter Dinklage is a great actor. He plays his ass off in this part. You know his father only helps him out of obligation from being his father. He killed his mother in child-birth. Which clearly everyone blames him for and rubs in his face. He loves the prostitutes and they seem to love him. He throws his money around to get whatever he wants. He is like Rodney Dangerfield he gets no respect. You feel sorry for the way they treat him. He is a side-show freak with money. Then you can’t feel bad for him because he knows how to handle himself. He is smarter than everyone else. You know he will survive the bullshit.

Out of the three Lannister kids he is the best one. The other two had an incestrious relationship and had three kids. The father knows this is true but never seems to acknowledge it.

Tyrion is a condescending honest caring asshole. He plays it very well. The line his constantly uses. I didn’t mean to offend you. Which you know that is exactly what he meant to do. Some characters are great when you read them in a book. They come alive with great actors. I believe he brings life to this character.

Equal to Lafayettte in True Blood. Lafayette was supposed to be killed off, but viewers loved his character so much they kept him alive.

HBO has done it again. They have made character come alive. Who ever the casting director is for these program they need a raise. They do a fantastic job!!!

The Game of Thrones (Arya Stark review)

I decided to review each supporting character first. I will begin with this little girl.

250px-Arya_season3Arya Stark will be my first character. She is the youngest girl of Lord Eddard and Catelyn Stark. She has a right to be royalty. She rather be a knight and fight. It was comical at first. A little girl wanting to fight and defend. They didn’t really tell you much about her. Other than her being a child of a Lord.

Her older sister very opposite of her wants to be queen. She is promised to Joffrey Lannister (heir to the throne) and is waiting for the day she will marry a future king. They are beyond different. The little girl seemed to be smarter than her older sister. Knowing that aligning with these Lannister’s was not a good idea. Especially after Joffery Lannister showed he was a lair and a coward.

Once the war begin and Jeffery killed the Lord Eddard Stark. Arya should have been imprisoned and used as a bargaining chip for the Lanniseter in the war. She escaped, which her family is not aware. I am impressed with the character. She is smart and naive at the same time.

Disguised as a boy to make it through undetected as she traveled alone. I love the writing and I enjoy her character. I have to admit she is not totally convincing. It seemed that something was off when she was playing a boy. It was hard to believe. I doubt she will win an Emmy for that performance. I believe she is a good actor, that has a great script. Granted I would have love for her to have gotten word to her family. Granted who knows what the series has coming next.

Also her father got her a fighting instructor before everything went crazy. Which I thought would be used later in the series. I haven’t seen to many fighting skills from her. It would make it more interesting if she started kicking people’s ass. I do enjoy her character, but I wish she did more. Some things they started with this character I haven’t seen them follow through yet. Her being able to fight would have made her believable as a boy. Also showing that her dream of becoming a Knight might come true.
