Geek Furious the Podcast Episode 14 - Game of Thrones 2.01 and Sexposition


Siskj (Jess) and I discuss the season 2 premiere of HBO's GAME OF THRONES. Adult language. Sex is discussed. And the meaning behind Sexposition, plus why Joffrey must die... and much, much more.

  2. Awesome. Reviewing an episode with siskj just like old times.

    I really enjoy hearing your perspective since you haven't read the book. If I had known back in 2005 a TV show was going to be made from it (that seemed completely insane back then) I never would have read them.

  3. Glad you all enjoyed it. I love doing podcasts with Siskj so... it was a lot of fun... and I cut about 25 minutes out... which had probably the best stuff! But had nothing to do with GOT.

  4. Could the other 25 minutes be released as a separate podcast? I guess that would only work if it was one long 25 minute digression.

  5. I liked the episode and the season will probaby get better as the characters start to do more.

    I wonder if Game of Thrones will end up getting cancelled early like Deadwood did.

    Deadwood got decent enough ratings to be renewed but HBO decided to cancel it because of high production costs.

    I didn't like Deadwood so it wasn't a big loss for me but i'd hate it if they cancelled Game of Thrones prematurely.

    I would like it to go six seasons if they can maintain somewhere close to it's current quality.

    Game of thrones looks like a very expensive show for HBO and i've heard they increased the budget this season.

    The one thing i didn't like about season 1 was that HBO didn't have a big enough budget to shoot the battle scenes.

    The talk of the ratings and early renewal on the podcast made me think of this.

    1. "I wonder if Game of Thrones will end up getting cancelled early like Deadwood did."

      DEADWOOD had shit ratings compared to GOT... though, HBO doesn't really care about ratings. They care about exposure that results in increased subscription, followed by home video revenue.

      DEADWOOD was never going to be a big cash-flow generator. GOT is very different.

  6. one thing i was confused about in the episode.

    I figured out that they were killing the bastard sons of King Robert so they couldn't make a claim to the throne.

    But who was doing it.

    Was it Stannis, Joffrey or Cersei?
