a guys soap opera

I'm fairly certain I will get flack for this..  Game of Thrones is TOTALLY a male soap opera.  My darling husband just gave me the readers digest version of the premise...  and its so a soap.  I'm not saying its a bad thing at all!  Blood, beheadings and period costumes on top of people who can act.. this is what a soap should be.   The reason I say its a soap is for the simple fact..   the twins... eeewwwwwwww!!!  If you haven't read the books yet or are just starting to watch the HBO series... I will not go into detail for the simple fact I can not remember and repeat what he told me. So the next time a guy gives me crap about watching "my stories".... I will throw this in his face and tell him to suck it.

dude, it's a guy's soap opera with the general backdrop of the freaking War of the Roses, which EVERYONE seems to be missing. Sheesh people. STARK and LANNISTER - does it need to be any more obvious? ;^)

And reading all the reviews of the show just makes me want to read the books again, which I need to do before I read the one coming out this summer anyway.

That is one of the areas of history I know very little about so I would totally miss it. Tim gave me the low down last night so it makes total sense to me. He was like a giddy school girl after we watched it. I do enjoy the clothes though..
