Ah, the good ol’ days of Game of Thrones when the show was fresh enough and exciting enough to inspire a new generation of readers to pick up George R. R. Martin’s epic fantasy series A Song of Ice and Fire.
These days the show still inspires a legion of rabid fans, but at the same time it has lost a little bit of it’s luster what with the fact that it seems like Martin will never actually get around to writing the next two book in the series.
Will we ever get The Winds of Winter and A Dream of Spring? The release date of TWOW keeps getting pushed back further and further, so at this point it doesn’t seem likely that the last two books of A Song of Ice and Fire will ever see the day.
Die hard fans can at the very least assuage their anxious trepidation for the books by watching the show and die hard fans of the show can await the seventh season by re-watching earlier seasons.
The first three seasons are especially stellar, because they feature one of my favorite characters: Ros, a prostitute of renown beauty played by Esme Bianco. Esme was the breakout star in the first few seasons as far as I’m concerned. Her beauty was only matched by her wit. The fact that she was killed off by that little shit Joffrey was a hard pill to swallow.
One of the best scenes of the entire show is when Littlefinger gives Ros and a new prostitute he just hired for his brothel a little class on how to get it on and get their clients off. It’s freaking hot and creepy and hot. My favorite combo!
Check out this photoshoot Esme Bianco did with Kristoffer Myhre a few years before Game of Thrones ever aired. You can see why they hired her to play Ros.
