Game of Thrones: A quick character guide

Game of Thrones: Jaime Lannister

Jaime Lannister is the twin brother of Cersei Lannister and her closest friend and companion. Jaime is one of the most skilled and formidible warriors in the kingdom. However, he has a reputation of being ruthless and dishonorable, mostly due to the fact that he was one of the king's guard for King Aerys Targaryen but ultimately delivered the death blow (through the back) to the mad king. That earned him the nickname "Kingslayer."  Nevertheless, Jaime is a little more complex than he first appears, like many of Martin's characters.

Great series by George R.R. Martin. Well worth the read for any high fantasy fans. Since I don't subscribe to HBO, I'll deffinately watch when each season becomes available on Blu-Ray. However, I don't know what this has to do with Tech Republic.

This article is linked in my TechRepublic newsletter? To quote the editor, "The Tech Sanity Check newsletter is my daily update on the world of technology." If I cared about this geek TV SHOW, I'd go to a more appropriate site. This has nothing to do with tech, and I can't think of a less relevant topic.

What's up with not giving the cast due credit? I'm up to #9 of 12 and have only seen Sean Bean credited.

Looks like a master work of art in progress by the photos you can guess the producers are trying to build a powerfull and longlasting iconic work. I think it could be at the high of LOTR or even better. Can wait to see start!

The OP doesn't know about the water cooler. Like many of us, doesn't think the water cooler was a good idea, and so refused to use it. TR wanted you enrage you to the point where you'd make your first comment in two years. :p

I mean, yeah, I'm asking a stupid question, but the above article is one of those gallery thingumies. Maybe TR was barfing a bit - seems to do it a lot of late, as they keep taking it out back to tune it up a little.
