5 Things We’ve Learned From Game of Thrones

Twinning is everything

1. It doesn’t matter how young or related to each other you are, sexytime is never off the agenda.

Unless you’re sworn to the Night’s Watch, of course: which as jobs go is only slightly less appealing than working in Poundland for free.



"By 'eck, it's grim up North"

2. In THE NORTH, everyone talks like they just emerged from a gritty British drama about brass bands and mining.

Apart from the women, who sound like they just missed out on the lead role in 2006 Helen Mirren vehicle The Queen. (Helen: you might want to watch out for direwolves).


Lose weight fast with the 'replace your body with a stick' diet.

3. Don’t get attached. To anyone.

Apparently ‘thrones’ is a more dangerous game than the final drunken attempt at Monopoly late on a Christmas evening. “If you buy Mayfair, I’ll tell granddad about what you did with that football team in 1967. Yeah, that’s right. Back off, old lady”.



Just £7.99 from Pets At Home. Comes with free bag of coal.

4. If you can’t afford a parrot, buy a dragon.

They shed a lot less and they’re about the same size.


5. Spelling is everything. Come on, George R.R.Martin: admit it. It’s not Joffrey or Eddard- it’s Jeffrey and Edward. You’re just sloppy. I hope you loyal viewers are looking forward to meeting the all new season 2 characters Birnard, Adrion and Stive.


Series 2 of A Game of Thrones is currently airing on Sky Atlantic.
