A Game of Thrones: LOL.

So we just came back from a beautiful weekend with friends, in time to catch this week's episode of Game of Thrones.

Now I'm reading reaction threads from non-book-readers on the Internet.

It's like delicious candy.

(Attention non-book-readers and non-series-watchers: go do either NOW before the Internet spoils the fuck outta you. I'm not kidding. You can only learn once who Luke's father is, and I don't even know how I'm going to preserve my kids' innocence on that.)

Also, Luke's father is actually Professor Layton, it just hasn't been revealed yet...

What?

(As for keeping it a surprise for your kids... do you think that, by the time he's old enough to be spoiled, people in his age range will even know of Luke?)

Well played, my young padawan. :P

(And as for the Skywalker filiation, I expect my sons to discover the movies the same way you and I did... Neither of us, I think, was old enough to see them at the time of their release!)

I don't know about the "only once" part. Granted, I had a headache coming, but I did feel a little sick even though I knew perfectly what was coming...

Oh, yes. The way it was filmed was nothing short of masterful. I especially liked how everything slowly went silent...
