Re: Game of Thrones
I'm about to watch it right now, I've had my eye on the show for a little bit. I don't know jack shit about the books unfortunately, but I'm sure this thread is crawling with people who do, so how is it following the books so far? I know the author is working on the show so I assume they can't go TOO far with the liberties.

We can't believe that someone with your skin color has the level of education that you have, so your gimmick is just gonna be that we put you on tv and brag that you went to school. Cause that's basically the gimmick that they gave him, how much more racist could his gimmick have been? Am I missing something here? What was the reason that the people were supposed to get behind him, other than the company just saying "phht, well, he's...in school".
