Game of Thrones, what a series! Tyrion Lannister, what a dwarf!
Game of Thrones is one of the best fantasy series I have ever seen and Tyrion Lannister one of the best main characters.
Based on the first book of ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’, a series of novels by George R. R. Martin, Game of Thrones TV series mixes a lot of different genres and elements which assure the success. Of course, the plot is placed in an imaginary kingdom and time, but it’s so well built that it seems a historical film, a movie of the Middle Ages with knights and fights by glory and honor, with handsome warriors and forgotten princesses, with cruel kings and nice children. Of course, Game of Thrones has dragons and magic, because it’s a fantasy series, but some of its magical elements are close to zombies, which brings us to another horror genre. Erotic scenes are frequent and even scandalous relations of incest. Love, sea battles, betrayals and revenge, a bit of everything and all very well done.
But among all these elements and characters, it excels Tyrion Lannister, a dwarf. Peter Dinklage is the awesome actor who plays the role. He cannot do better!
The small Tyrion is the strongest man of Seven Kingdoms in spite of his degenerated family. He fights against his terrible sister and nephew, against his evil father, and against the corruption trying to rule the kingdom with justice. In fact, he is the only one able to lead the army when things get ugly while other knights react as cowards.
Tyrion Lannister is intelligent because he has always known that being so little, he has to based his strength on his brain, and he is a seductive, he knows how to speak a woman, no doubt.
I’ve been missing Tyrion Lannister from months. Fortunately, the series was renewed for a third season by the U.S. cable channel HBO on April 10, 2012, few days after the second season premiere. Again, the third season will consist of ten episodes. It will be based on the first half of ‘A Storm of Swords’, the third of the ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’ novels. Production started in July 2012, and the season will be released on March 31, 2013.
I’m waiting for you, Tyrion Lannister, the last man of honor!
