Theon is honestly one of my favorite characters. I probably prefer him to Jon Snow.

As for Viserys, he was just an asshole. He wasn't a sadistic fuck like Joffrey, and he wasn't an honorable man like Robb. He was bound for nothing.

Yep, Theon is great. Alfie Allen does a great job with the character, some of the facial expressions he makes are just brilliant.

Theon is also one of my fav characters, even tho he was a total mong in season 2 at the end, hard not to sympathise with him this season.

I don't wanna wait another year for more GoT

Wasn't sadistic? He beat his sister, threatened to cut open his pregnant sister at swordpoint and told her he'd happily let every Dothraki and all their horses rape her to get himself the crown. That's pretty sadistic.

The difference between Joffrey and Viserys is that Viserys was an exile who had no power and had to beg people for help and Joffrey has a bunch of Lannister lapdogs going along with whatever sadistic whim he feels like. If Viserys had Joffrey's resources he'd be just as bad, if not worse. Contrastly, if Joffrey got thrown onto another continent with nothing, he'd be picked off in a matter of time.

Jaime is an asshole, The Hound is an asshole, Robert is an asshole. Viserys is fucked up in the head.

Episode 99 - Superhero Showdown Returns!

The much requested Superhero Showdown episode makes a return where we pit your favourite comic/movie/tv characters against each other to determine who's slighty better! Also we get into news of the new Civil War line-up, Star Wars The Force Awakens, Assassins Creed and undoubtably something else to do with whatever this podcast is about. Thanks for listening!

Eewww, books...

I'm actually reading the first one at the moment, but I'm not going to read ahead of the TV show.

I hate reading too but it's worth reading the books. The books cover so much more detail than the show does.

Theon has grown on me so much thanks to his plight. Such a conflicted character when you think about it. Was on the fence with his alignment to the Starks for so long, returns home & goes asshole on the Starks, then ends up getting duped and is now the most sympathetic character in the whole of the show. Which does say a lot considering all of the tragic means that have plagued numerous characters.

If we get Theon to live (despite castration lingering about) and Ramsay to die next season, well, I consider that a mega victory for us fans. I hate Ramsay so much. That's why he's a fantastic villain.

I still can't believe the 180 seen by Jamie in season three. Talk about sympathy helping him along. Used to be 100% unlikable, now he feels like a completely different character. To more shock and awe Cersei showed humanity in the season finale herself. Very interesting to see where the story goes come Season Four. If I really want to know I suppose I should take Pyro's advice and read the next book...

Don't read the next one, read them all. There's tons of characters and things that were cut out that you'll get lost otherwise.

Besides, if you read the fourth book you'll miss what's gonna happen in season four because that's book 3 shit too.
