If you haven’t been watching Game Of Thrones then you’re about as far behind the rest of the world as Nick Kyrgios’s vocab is behind that of a nun.
I’m happy to admit that when first hearing the basic premise of the killer HBO-series, I laughed harder than track golden girl Sally Pearson cried when her Rio Olympics bid came to an early end due to injury this week.
But when you throw in the frequent use of nudity and violence, well I slowly but surely became hooked like a teenage fan girl on Bieber bangers.
This week the season six finale set an Aussie audience record for Foxtel. The series has racked up more industry awards than former tennis hero Andrea Agassi has lines of coke and its trophy cabinet looks like that of horseman Chris Waller after another stellar Group 1 season.
The impact Game Of Thrones has had on the world is just insane. Already I’m gearing up to meet more strippers in the next couple of decades called Khaleesi than Tiffany, and if one more of my mates buys a bloody huskie I’ll just about call it off.
That said, I’m also pro-female nudity and epic battle scenes so I’m on board like the NFL’s Indianapolis colts quarterback Andrew Luck is paid – fully ($140 million!)
It also helps that the cast of actresses is hotter than the daughters of ex-PM Tony Abbott, talk about the apple falling not just far from the tree but in a different paddock altogether!
Emilia Clarke who plays Daenerys “Breaker of Chains” Targaryen is up against her own body double on the show, her 18-year-old doppelganger Rosie Mac. Who would you most like to brace ‘The Winds of Winter’ with? Now this is a battle you bastards!
