It's the Blood, Boobs and Carnage Blogfest!

Hosted by our own Ninja Captain Alex and the amazing Heather Gardner!

I can't think of anything that better exemplifies this theme than my absolute favorite show ever: Game of Thrones.

It's the best thing on television

(Notice: If you haven't watched through at least up to Season 4 then don't read on.  We're talking about death so needless to say this references a lot of characters who die.)
 This show has it all!  Let's start with the blood...
I can't think of a single episode where at least one person doesn't die in a relatively bloody and spectacular way.  Whether it's beheading, flaying, skull-crushing or just a good old-fashioned stabbing there's so much blood on the set of this show you'd think they'd run out of the stuff.  But, of course, you'd be wrong.  With an author who loves killing off characters providing plenty of material to go off of we'll be seeing lots of red for a long time to come on this show.

Boobs...

And, of course- Carnage!

With the tag line "Valar Morghulis" (Translation: All Men Must Die) you know the show is gonna rack up the body count.  From Dothraki feuding to Red Weddings to the Battle of the Blackwater to the Attack on Castle Black this show kills off people in such large numbers it's hard to keep count.  But of course, someone did.
Even though a bit of my soul dies every time another beloved character gets mutilated in front of my eyes I keep coming back for more- just like the other 8 million viewers out there who, like me, will be glued to their TV sets every Sunday night for as long as this amazing show remains on the air.  Blood, boobs and carnage it's got a  plenty- but it's also the best thing on TV.

Don't forget to stop by all the other blogs naming their favorites today!  (I get the feeling this show will be a favorite.)

  1. Haven't seen the show, just read the books. Wouldn't surprise me if they're all dead by the end.

    1. Yeah. My husband and I frequently joke that Ricken will be King in the end because everyone forgot to kill ti him and he'll be the only one left.

  4. Seeing a lot of GoT today. I'm embarrassed to say that even thought I've read all the books, I have yet to watch an episode.

  11. Love the boob-o-meter. Brilliant. I wish the other chart was larger. I can't read it and zooming in doesn't make it any easier. =(

    1. Click on the link to go to the original- it's larger and you can read the article that goes along with it which explains it in more detail.

  17. GoT is winning the blogfest. My daughter is so irritated with this season as the writers change some of the storylines in the books and have to make up more as they've outstripped Martin's snail-speed writing.

    Replies
    1. Yeah, I don't know why they're changing it! I hope the writers on the show can continue to do it justice while departing from the original source material.

  18. If you want blood and boobs, it's hard to top Game of Thrones. Fine choice, Bev!

  19. The song with the clip was so inappropriate, lol. Fabulous. Some of those deaths were so satisfying. Sadly, more of my favorite characters are bound to die, curse that George!!

    1. Yeah, I think it's dangerous to love anyone in those stories because they'll inevitably die before the end. Sigh.

  20. The boob-o-meter is beyond awesome, chuckle of the day! haven't watched it, but loved your post, thanks. here from the BBC fest..

  21. This is too funny. GoT is my favorite show and even though I didn't take part in this fest it was the first thing to come to mind when I saw the announcement about it.

  22. Now I've seen it all, a Boob meter - I must be the only person in the world who doesn't watch this show, but I also don't watch or listen to Walking Dead, Mad Men, or really any of the cable series. I'm the dullest person in the world! LOL

    1. You're missing some great programs! But then if you're occupying your time with more intellectually stimulating pursuits like reading and writing I can't fault you!

  23. Thanks for the sweet intro!

    HA! That is the best graphic I've ever seen! And, Put on a Happy Face playing during all the death! EPIC!
    Great choice.
    THANK YOU for joining Alex and me in this EPIC blogfest!

  24. I'm WAY late on the GoT bandwagon, but I'm in it to win it now - almost done with season one, and totally in love. The Boob graphic is hilarious (just the 3 per episode? it feels like more....) and I had to tear my eyes away from the death chart to avoid spoilers. I'll have to come back when I'm caught up!!!

  25. Your post is so funny! I never imagined there'd be a show where people keep track of characters killed off and the number of boobs per episode! lol

Thank you for your comment! I will love it and hug it and pet it and call it George. Or, you know, just read and reply to it. But still- you rock!
