Game of Thrones Humor Season 5 Season 6

The Game of Thrones cast summarizes Season 5 in 96 Seconds

Game of Thrones

We’re just a month’s worth of Sundays away from the Game of Thrones Season 6 premiere on April 24, which means that if you haven’t yet refreshed your memory on all the exciting happenings of Season 5, then you better get cracking. If you happen to be the busy type and can’t dedicate 10 hours in a row to cramming the wonders of Westeros into your eye-holes, then never fear, because Arya, Sam, Reek, and the Boltons have you covered.

Over at MTV News, the actors behind the characters gave a brief summary of their storylines in Season 5, and in some cases—Ian Beattie (Meryn Trant) for instance—are pretty darn hilarious. Check it out:

I love how Maisie Williams is serious and reserved (for a change) while describing Arya’s story, while Beattie just lays down the truth in all its brutal glory. Notice Dean-Charles Chapman (Tommen Baratheon) sitting quietly by as Beattie succinctly describes Meryn Trant’s arc:

Evil scumbag who deserves everything he gets.

I wonder if it’s an accident that Sam (John Bradley-West) and Pod (Daniel Portman), two of the most beloved characters on the show, are paired for the video. Also, is Sam losing weight? I can never really tell when Bradley is wearing all those furs on the show. But when Bradley-West has been in the press lately, it seems like he’s slimmed down a bit.

I also liked how we went from Theon/Reek (Alfie Allen) to the Boltons—Michael McElhatton and Iwan Rheon. Although I despise them, I consistently find myself drawn to the characters of Roose and Ramsay Bolton…and I chalk that up to the writing on the show and the acting of McElhatton and Rheon. Just watch them during their summary of Season 5—it’s kind of delightful. No, I refuse to cheer for you, Ramsay, I don’t care if that’s all you’ve ever wanted, you evil bastard!

Then of course you’ve got Liam Cunningham (Davos) and the newly pregnant with totally not a shadow baby Carice van Houten (Melisandre). Of course, Cunningham drops the “Stan the man” quote, and I dig him for that. Is it me, or has he quietly become the spokesman for Game of Thrones Season 6? “We shall have to wait and see, in Season 6.”

  • I can barely wait. I think Ian ‘Meryn Trant ‘Beatlie will show up in the hall of faces. Unless he’s promoting the season 5 box set there’s no reason for him to be doing interviews.

  • I recently re watched season 5 and it really wasn’t as bad as everyone says it was. It had some really good moments in it. Tyrion’s whole season was good, I enjoyed the Sansa story besides the rape, Jon had a good season with hardhome and personally the beheading of janos slynt was one of the highlights of the season for me, and as much as I hated the sand snakes Jaime and Bronn were a good pair. It was really the Dany and Ayra storylines were the most boring of the season aside from the daznaks pit scene and the brutal, awesome murder of Meryn Trant. The kings landing scenes were average, I missed the presence of Charles Dance. That’s just my opinion, I know everyone else has there own on the season.

      • Season 5 was great but it was time for some back lash. That’s the way this pop culture dynamic works … all the people who are into something when its new need to reject it a few years later when it becomes mega-popular.

        It’s part of how people define themselves and mistakenly think they are being autonomous.

  • I love Sam! He’s one of my favorite characters to follow on the show. I don’t know why but I just enjoy his portrayal.

    • RENLYS OTHER LOVER, you are going to enjoy Samwell Tarly more in ADTD (Book 5) because his chapters were really very interesting and funny. His last chapter was the intriguing part because readers were introduced to the Obsidian Candle.

  • I can sum it up in less than one second. Check this out: “Awful”.

    *Checks stopwatch* – eighty-seven milliseconds. Did it! Phew!
