If you're like me, you're beside yourself with all sorts of happiness about the glorious return of Game of Thrones this past Sunday. Now that the show is back, we can all get our weekly fix of intrigue and the machinations of powerful people (not to mention twincest, ladies asking where their dragons are, and, apparently, armies of zombies.)
I was, in fact, so excited that I posted this silly link on my facebook. It's basically a series of drawings in which Game of Thrones characters are imagined as characters from other shows (i.e., Seinfeld). Here's the Mad Men one.
One of the greatest things about posting things to Facebook is that it often serves as a reminder of how awesome my friends are. Last night was one of those occasions. In her comments, my friend Jesse gifted me with the gift that I can hopefully keep on giving, because hot damn it's pretty much the best thing ever.
As I've previously mentioned, in addition to being a huge Game of Thrones fan, I am also a huge Arrested Development fan (and am eagerly awaiting the inevitably kickass Netflix episodes coming out in May). So what could be better than Game of Thrones and Arrested Development separately? That's right. The beautiful symphony of Game of Thrones and Arrested Development together. The geniuses at Arrested Westeros have combined Game of Thrones screencaps with Arrested Development quotes, to hilarious, nerdgasmic effect. Here are some of the best ones
The Jaime/Joffrey/Cersei Oscar/Buster/Lucille ones were the absolute best (aided in no small part by the fact that Cersei and Lucille are basically the same person):
And, lest I forget, magician jokes, with Pyat Pree's creepy-ass face all over the place:
But my discovery of awesome things did not stop there, dear reader. Apparently, there are a whole bunch of people with a whole bunch of time on their hands that are making Game of Thrones mash-up blogs with other shows I love! Among them: Archer (at A Song of ISIS and Fire), Futurama (at Westerama), and Parks and Recreation (at Storm of Swansons). Be still my fangirl heart! Here are some of my favorites from the three of them:
ARCHER /GAME OF THRONES
Aaaaand my absolute favorite:
Game of Thrones/Futurama
And, in my personal opinion, the best of the bunch:
Game of Thrones/Parks and Recreation
So there you have it: a run down of the Game of Thrones mashup sites that made my life awesome this morning. Hopefully they'll do the same for you.
And remember, kids: WINTER IS COMING.
