Muse in Disguise (better late than never)

I'm three episodes in on the first season of Game of Thrones - and yes, I get it! I understand the hype. 

Ever since I came back from the Banff World Media Festival, I've had an insatiable hunger for TV - especially series that are "new to me" like Being Human, Blood Ties and of course, Game of Thrones.  I'm loving the epic fantasy feel. 

I read George R.R. Martin's books many, MANY years ago, but from what I can remember, the on screen adaptation is pretty darn good. 

The world is incredibly developed, the cinematography brilliant, but what really resonates with me is the awesome characterization. I haven't figured everyone out yet, but I'm really intrigued by Khal Drogo (Jason Momoa). He kind of gives me the creeps - and yet there's something strangely sexy about him. I thought I might be losing my mind until I looked him up.

Uh...yeah...definitely muse avatar worthy.

The week is half over and I'm late picking a muse - but I think Jason here is up for the challenge. As my long list of things to do increases, I have a feeling Jason may have to put in a lot of overtime this week - on screen and off.

Watching Game of Thrones? What's your opinion? And which character do you love?

  1. He was one of my favourite characters in Stargate Atlantis. And soo easy to look at. :-)

    I'm a Sean Bean fan and definitely liked Eddard Stark. Also, Tyrion Lannister and Arya Stark.
