Hide your eyeballs, throats and genitalia: one of television’s most graphic series is back in business, and per the norm, it’s brought along enough butts and boobs to make some porn directors blush.

That’s right, Game of Throne’s fifth season is upon us and it isn’t pulling any punches. Well, maybe a few. Actually, the first half of the season thus far has made the Mayweather vs. Pacquiao fight look like a bloody UFC kill-or-be-killed fight-to-the-finish. Ok, so I’m exaggerating a bit seeing as I didn’t taken any lengthy naps during the first five episodes like I did during the aforementioned boxing match, which I thankfully didn’t pay for. Nevertheless, in comparison to past seasons, I can’t help but think Game of Throne’s fifth year is off to an ever-so-slightly sluggish start, story wise.

Gentlemen, please let me rephrase what I meant by sluggish…

 

Or maybe it’s just that the HBO series based on George R. R. Martin’s fantasy novels has so desensitized the small chuck of remaining innocence within my hell-destined soul that the gratuitous gore and nudity is preventing me from seeing advancement of the actual plot. (To be fair, this minor gripe comes from someone who has yet to read the books, so go easy on me.) Either way, it’s not that the season hasn’t been interesting to this point, but I may push my own retinas through to the back of my skull if I have to watch Arya Stark apply Mr. Clean to the floors in dead silence for even three more seconds.

On that pleasant image, I’m going to let the Wild Wild Podcast do the rest of the talking so you can find out if Spunky Destructor agrees with my assessment, and get some early predictions on what will transpire by the time season five reaches the finish line. My money says: bet on American Pharaoh by a nose… one that would probably get lopped off if he played a part in the HBO series.
