A look back at the highs and lows of HBO's landmark series in terms of story and character.
Douche Ranking "The Lion and The Rose." Where Game of Thrones characters are ranked on the patented (patent pending) Dork Shelf douche-awesome scale, wherein douchiness is measured in Joffreys and awesomeness is measured in mother$&#@ing dragons.
Quite a few characters on Game of Thrones tend to be well… douches. The wonderful thing about the show, however, is that you never know what end of the douche-awesome spectrum each character will end up on from week to week. Dork Shelf has decided to help you keep track of where George R. R. Martin’s imagination children stand each episode with our newest feature: Douche Ranking Game of Thrones!
It's hard to believe the season is already half over, but HBO's Game of Thrones continues to go strong in its fifth episode, entitled "The Ghost of Harrenhal." Gruesome deaths, political schemes, hard truths, and revenge are par for the course in this series and nowhere is that more evident than in this episode.
Starting with a fart joke and a direwolf mauling, "Garden of Bones" is an episode full of timely interventions and fateful confrontations, as well as one of the most disturbing cliffhangers you're ever likely to see on TV. Despite some missteps, HBO's Game of Thrones continues to be one of the most compelling shows on television with this fourth episode of the second season.
