Game of Desks

I am not a Game of Thrones fan. For two seasons, I really tried, but gave up when some unbearably awful line of dialogue sent me running. In season 1, the line was "I am a Khaleesi of the Dothraki." As one irate comment pointed out at the time, that's the equivalent of "I am the Queen of England," which was pretty much my point - that's a terrible line. My GOT aversion comes with some exceptions, though: Peter Dinklage, just because he's fantastic as the wily Tyrion, and now Jimmy Fallon, whose parody Game of Desks premiered last night.  Guess who announces herself as the Khaleesi?

 The conceit is that Studio 6B is a lot like the world of Game of Thrones (less of a stretch than saying it's like Downton Abbey, in the hilarious Late Night Downton Sixby spoofs). Take a look at the cutthroat world of power as it plays out among late night hosts and pretenders to what they call the Iron Desk.

    I agree with Robb. And what a terrible reason for hating the series. For a journalist meant to report on the entertainment world without bias, you sure do have a lot of opinions you seem to want to prove to people. The next time you want to review a series, be sue not to makeit so obvious that you're some snooty hipster disliking anything popular. This article didn'even need your ridiculous comments. If you want to be a successful writer, don't try to impress people with your taste and write about what you're supposed to. And if you truly don'like the show, whichI know some people don't, be sure to give an actual reason. Dany's line you quoted was not how you say it was. Just grow up and act like a proper journalist.

    What a stupid article. If you are not a fan of Game Of Thrones, then maybe you shouldn't write the article about a hillarious spoof that only game of thrones fans would enjoy.
