^ decided to go to the wall because of a bit of an identity crisis, and then proceeded to whine about it for an entire season. Robb & (of course) Ned were much more identifiable 'heroes' in S1. Robb kicked off as a character very late, but between hearing about Ned's capture and meeting Talisa, he was a full-on hero to be rooted for. Jon doesn't have that innate likeability imo. He has his moments, but I believe he's like universal 1st or 2nd most loved, tied with Danaerys (another character who I really don't like anywhere near as much as everyone else seems to)

Jon & Dany are the two least interesting important characters in the story IMO.

I just don't like Bran's story in general.

I can see Bran's story either being ASTONISHINGLY GREAT or a huge, huge letdown. I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt for now.

Totally agree on Jon & Danaerys. When I rewatch S1 I skip the Dothraki stuff usually because it's so much monumentally less interesting. Thank fuck for Drogo straight up murdering some bitches to keep stuff moving on that front. I wish Jorah had more "awesome BEAR OF MORMONT" scenes than "pining from the friendzone" ones, I like him.

The Wall, and the Night's Watch, are crazy interesting concepts, it's disappointing what they've amounted to so far. Fingers crossed for some upkick in the future from the Wall

i don't get how you can't see why dany/jon would be likeable. i may not like dany (her season 3 scenes owned btw) but i can see why people do. powerful young woman who starts with nothing and manages to overcome an abusive brother and what seems like a disasterous marriage for some happiness---> taken away by a witch woman and all she has left is her dragons. i can definitely see why people think "oh I hope she does well"

i mean that's me spinning it quite positive but i'm not exactly biased for her so etc

What I saw was a young woman who somehow tamed the mighty Khal with little else but the power of her tits, then stumbled her way through 2 seasons on the fluke of her last name and magical flameresistant birthpower, all the while we have guys like Jorah falling over themselves to remind us again and again what an amazingly magically unique snowflake she is. If I ever hear "WHERE ARE MY DRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNS??!!!?" again, it'll be too soon. I don't fault Emilia Clarke, I'm just saying I don't buy into the cult of personality the way that Jorah, the Dothraki and viewers alike have.

Jon has a much more identifiable backstory, and is not as in-your-face about it as Dany is, but he's just too damn whiney all the time. The likes of Jeor Mormont and the Halfhand are instantly effortlessly more charismatic than Jon. When he ran off to try to join Robb's war, it should have played as a piece of tragic heroism, but it came off more as "sulky kid throwing his toys out of the pram".

This is all just opinion, bien sr

I see why they're likeable, doesn't make them any less dull to me.

Daenerys' character and story was only interesting in Season 1, and it was not even because of her, it was basically due to Viserys and the whole Dothraki stuff. Her story has been dragging ever since. Just boring and boring.

Dany's arc isn't my favourite but I don't mentally groan when she comes on like I do with Bran and Jon Snow. I just don't give a single fuck about them 2. Other than HODOR. Hodor. Dany's had plenty of great scenes among the lesser ones. Plus Emilia Clarke fucking bossed the fuck out the first half of this season. Ironically they're probably the 3 characters arcs that I see having the most longevity.

I think that's part of what I don't like about Jon & Danaerys particularly. They're so blatantly endgame characters (ice & fire, after all) that I know they're gonna be kicking about for years to come, even though the things they're doing in the here and now are so uninteresting to me. Sometimes I wish Viserys was still about, I think that his particular brand of unfit-to-rule douchebag would interest me more than THE PEOPLE'S CHAMPION, THE MOST ELECTRIFYING GODDESS IN BLOODSPORTS ENTERTAINMENT, DANAERYS TARGARYEN!!!. I wanna see Westeros faced with the return of the Mad King 2.0, not his perfect, beloved, special daughter.

To be fair, they've got Mad King 2.0 right now. Although Viserys was much more interesting to me than Joffrey.

I don't mind Jon, but he's not my favourite. Dany is grating at times, but has an interesting moment here and there like when she burned the slaver. The one that infuriates me is Bran. Bran is TNA, Total Nonstop Awful.
