One does not simply Tank Cat into the Emmy’s.….


We here at the TheGamers­Blog would like to con­grat­u­late our favorite show (at least for most of us) that just debuted a few short months ago for being nom­i­nat­ed for 13 Emmys, Game of Thrones. The series, based on George R.R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” nov­els, pre­miered on HBO back in April and was quick­ly picked up for a sec­ond sea­son herald­ing to rave reviews and high rat­ings. Mak­ing sure to watch every episode, we would explode in dis­cus­sion over that week’s episode; it’s still the only rea­son out­side of some sport­ing events, that I keep my cable. The series had some great twist, a huge WTF moment, and a strong lead into its sec­ond sea­son. Peter Din­klage was nom­i­nat­ed for best sup­port­ing actor for his role of Tyri­on Lan­nis­ter. Unfor­tu­nate­ly Sean Bean was snubbed, a much under­rat­ed actor in my opin­ion, but the Emmy’s are just too small for Bean to tank cat into. Either catch the series On Demand or via HBO GO, regard­less you should check it out oth­er­wise your miss­ing one of the best series to hit T.V. in quite a while. Also there is a RTS based on the series com­ing some­time this fall, just to keep this post rel­e­vant to gam­ing. Below is a list of the nom­i­na­tions.

    As men­tioned we are all fans of this show. After the first episode I found that I could not put it down. I wait­ed patient­ly every day to get home from work on mon­day so I could watch it. The next day we all would talk about it at the office and dis­cuss what we thought of the episode and the char­ac­ters.
    We also hat­ed on a few of the char­ac­ters… ye know who they are.
