Game Of Thrones


My Step Son Doesn't Shut Up About The Show With His Friends Lately And I Was Happy To Buy Him The Books Because I Find It Refreshing A Freshman In High School Likes To Read In His Spare Time. So Anyhow I Had Some Time To Myself Last Night And Began Watching The First Season On Demand To See What All The Hype Is About.

I Was Shocked And Disgusted By A Rape Scene Very Early On. I Can Handle Gore, Killing And Nudity But I Found The Few Episodes I Watched To Be Cheapened By It. It Was Made Very Evident That Blonde Woman Did Not Want To Be Forced To Marry That Barbarian Savage And That She Was Terrified Of Him. I Think We All Would Of Inferred What Happened If They Just Showed Them Going Into The Hut. Why Did They Show A Rape Scene On HBO? Just For The Nudity? It Was Very Heavy-Handed And Disgusting.

I Informed His Mother About What's On That Show And He Won't Be Able To Watch Anymore And I Confiscated The Books Back. When He Goes Off To College I Will Give Him His Books Back But That Show Isn't Appropriate For A 14 Year Old. Does Anyone Else Agree Or Have Any Children That Watch That Show?

I tend to watch questionable things before deciding whether my children to view them. It's part of Parenting 101. In Parenting 102, they teach proper capitalization.

Thank You For Your Judgement Although I Began Dating His Mother Less Than A Year Ago. I Called Him My Step Son So I Didn't Have To Explain Our Relationship When That Has Nothing To Do With My Post. I Have Two Children Of My Own And Raised Them Just Fine Thank You Very Much But Whatever They Can And Can't Watch Is Now On There Mother Who Has Full Custody.

Those scenes represent the world they live in. It isn't a glamorization of rape or the lifestyle.

It's an excellent show and an even better series of books. They are intended for a mature audience, which I think a mentally healthy 14 year old qualifies as as far as this story is concerned. If the boy has been extremely sheltered or has a hard time differentiating between reality and fantasy I'd do exactly what you did. Otherwise I think you overreacted.

Well Put! To Be Frank His Mother Was The One Who Demanded I Take The Books Back And He No Longer Watch The Show But I Shall Talk To Her. We've Both Overheard The Things He And His Friends Talk About And Its Far Worse Then That Show. You Should Be A Lawyer!

Sheltered kids are always the ones that are the most ****ed up, in my opinion. Let your step son observe all those beautiful boobies.
 
Guilty Confession I Am Now Hooked On The Show After Watching A Couple More Episodes Of The First Season. I Enjoy The Excellent Story Telling And How Gripping It Is. I Must Say Joffrey Is A Boss. He Has Panache! I Am Hoping To Catch Up Before Sunday. Is Season 1 Better Then Season 2?

Yeah, season 1 is a little better. I have high hopes for season 3.
 
Can't follow this thread cus i tend to skip over the post of that guy who capitalizes every first lette rof a word.

game of thornes: boobies! yay!
 
Shamefully I Took The Day Off Of Work Today And Completed The First Two Seasons On HBO And Cannot Wait For Sunday!

I Cannot Wait To See The White Walkers Invade King's Landing! That Should Be A Great War. I Predict Aria Takes Over The Throne At Some Point Because She's The Only Protag In The Show!

This guy is a joke, right?

I assume so, but how sad is that? Every new poster that becomes really active right away and is any way quirky is assumed to be an alt.

Hey, countonbuckets (who ironically didn't put any capital letters in his username), tell us a little about yourself. Do you deny outright that you've ever been a user of this site before under a different account?
