Quote of the Moment Regarding Game of Thrones

"What sets it apart is not the monsters, the nudity, or the festering gallons of gratuitous gore, but the overwhelming sense that the plot got run off the rails three books ago and is being steered towards a terrible precipice by a bunch of bickering, power-mad maniacs. This, coincidentally, happens to be the plot of the entire 21st century so far." —Laurie Penny, in New Republic

In which I realize I like Game of Thrones so much not because it's swords and sorcery fantasy, but because it's actually existential horror.
