'Game of Thrones' can be really complicated. There are so many characters with storylines that intersect and if you've never watched the show it's natural to be intimidated to try and catch up now. Luckily, the blockbuster show's network HBO asked the indomitable Samuel L. Jackson to provide a recap for fans and lapsed fan. As you can imagine it's the funniest most profane succinct recap you've ever heard.
This compilation video from the network's official YouTube channel finds Jackson going back to the beginning and narrating all the major events, or as many as possible in seven minutes, to today. Uncensored and candid, calling the sadistic Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon) a "dick-head" comparing Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) to Marie Antoinette and calling her brother Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) "a lush" are all descriptive and accurate.
Jackson admits in the video that "All of this is, is nothing compared to what we didn’t have a chance to get to...the backstabbing, the lying, the cheating, the parts that will make you feel uncomfortable." Yet, it's an entertaining way to get caught up, relive those crazy moments again, or get a grasp of what all the hype is. And what better way than with Samuel L. Jackson as your guide. Check it out.
