"game of thrones" is a game which Lannisters always win
7 June 2014 | by See all my reviews

There is a saying for football; that football is a game, played with eleven men and a ball which always Germans win" so I think, "game of thrones" is a game which Lannisters always win. when are they going to start losing? I sick and tired of watching them winning. well let's hope "winter is coming"...

I have read the third book and reading the fourth one so I know what is going to happen but still.. I think if it was not the book it would not be this way. they would not let all "bad guys" win all the time...

Sansa is still thirteen years old in the book but the actress look like at least eighteen.. I loved when Arya laughed at that scan that was funny and I think pity.. she would be saved. but she has a great adventure to go İ think..
