TV Review: Game of Thrones series 3

I've had these box sets for a while and had never watched a single episode until I watched season 1 last month. This review of season three will be free of plot spoilers and will only contain vague general thoughts about who I like and dislike so it will be safe to look at if you haven't watched the series yet. I binge watched this over two nights as I got more engrossed in the story!

My favourite characters in series 3:
Tyrion Lannister
Daenerys Targaryen
Jon Snow
Robb Stark 
Margaery Tyrell
Olenna Tyrell
Jorah Mormont
Jeor Mormont
Samwell Tarly
Davos Seaworth
Sandor Clegane 'The Hound'

Next are the ones I still wanted to see die a horrible death:
Cersei Lannister
Jaime Lannister (???)
Joffrey Lannister 
Tywin Lannister
Petyr "Littlefinger" Baelish
Theon Greyjoy
Balon Greyjoy
Stannis Baratheon
Dagmer Cleftjaw 
Ramsay Snow
Walder Frey
Roose Bolton

I can't quite believe episode nine happened...Tywin needs to DIE for that and for the way he treats poor Tyrian. I think I'm still in a bit of shock it was such a horrific end to the season. Jon Snow finally finds his brain and his purpose and people that I hated turn out to have redeeming qualities ie Jaime...until he does something evil again that is. Others are going to get theirs I hope. I shed a ton of tears and tonight I go straight to the next series with a sense of horror and impending doom.


  1. Enjoy your GoT binge! The blood, the sex, the gore, the betrayal. What's not to love?

    1. I was so worried about over hype before I started but I'm addicted now! I've only got time for 4 episodes a night and it's not enough!!! I should be finished the first 6 series before the month ends though.

  2. I'm loving your updates on this series and am thrilled you are enjoying it. This is absolutely not a spoiler but just put Jaime on both lists and leave it at that. Probably the safest bet. Have you ordered the new illustrated book yet? You know you want to :)

    1. I watched season 4 in 2 nights and what a season it was...will be posting my review probably tomorrow but I have moved Jamie off the hit least for now! Episodes 2, 9 and 10 were my favourites-all very emotional! *blubbers* What is it about episode 9's in this series!

      Stop leading me astray! I haven't bought it...yet...but I did buy a few T shirts and a very cool bag!

  3. Glad to hear you're enjoying this series so much. It's always fun to see characters you hated have some redeeming qualities after all.
