meets fellow Night Watchman
His Grace, His Excellency, Blackboard monitor, The Duke of Ankh; Commander Sir Samuel ”Sam” Vimes.
Vimes is not impressed
I love The Discworld! Especially the Watch books and anything set in Ankh-Morpork. Like the Moist books and The truth and one of the Wee Free Men books and some of the Wizard books and and and… I love the entire Discworld
Also I am (like the rest of the world) enamoured with the TV series: Games of Thrones.
It has some Kick Ass characters!! Tyrion! Basically the entire Female Cast! LOVE LOVE LOOOVE
I have not read Song of fire and Ice, incase someone was wondering
Both these worlds have Sams, Night watches aaaaand Charles Dance in their TV adaptations!
I was waiting for someone to make this joke, I got tired of waiting
Everyone ad their aunt names someone in their fiction “Sam” or “Sam” for short. Seriously think about it, you’ll get a staggering number
I know lots of people really like Jon Snow - I did too at the start - but at some point he transformed into a whingy annoying person who always has his mouth open... This probably offends a whole legion of fans
But yes, Vimes is just awesome and I do love Charley Dance both as Vetinari and as Tywin Lannister
And Thwin amd Vetinari could play a nice game of cyvasse/thud and talk about politics until they try to kill eachother.
Vetinari would win. He has never had a undashing incident with his son and a toilet.
Imagine how different the first book would have been if Vimes had been in charge of the City Watch instead of Janos Slynt...
Everybody:Get that cat of my throne1Your throne? (start arguing).
Greebourrs and kills dragons with one claw.
Everybody:When I think better,who needs to be king (Queen!yes,that too.)?All that work and numbers,all hail king Greebo fast!!!
I mean,he is just scared of You (granny Weatherwax's cat,so makes sense) and Nac Mac Feegle (who can kill troll and got kicked out of Elfland because they were too violent,even if they claim that was because they fought against Queen's evil wishes,but only when they are somber enough to remember that story,which is rare).I don't count Legba,as Greebo just retreated when confronted by god Miss Gogol created,then in human form had vegneance.Given Nanny's statement in that book that he is fiend (secret among witches,just as afore-mentioned witch mentioned to her as secret that Legba is ordinary cock) and she normally dfeends him,we should take statement literally.nanny does have knack for demons.
No hot chick, just bros
And old crusty guys

It's not a bad thing but you don't have your facts straight.
Song of ice and fire would not have sold as well as it did had not Lord of the rings been made in to films and taken the world by storm.
Before Lord of the rings fantasy wasn't a genre to be taken seriously. people used whool and nittedd and then sprayed it with silver paint wen they were to film chainamail.
Game of thrones wouldn't be if not LotR paved way and can't be named the force behind fantasy's mainstreem acceptance.
I can give them thr rivival after Eragon killed it for the genre on the screen. but I can't give it more than that.
And you ask your fellow fantasy loving firends and a lot of them will know of Discworld. it's a huge fenominon but it's a bit of an acuierd taste and doesn't tickle everyones fansy, too much satire and dry humour i guess. I really enjy and adore Game of thrones, I do. it's a great show.
I can only imadgen what Ledgend of the seeker feelt when they saw what people could do.
I so hope it's a true go
Also, I want Jeremy Irons as the Patrician again. Charles Dance was good, but he didn't have black hair, it just looked weird to me.
Charls Dance, come on! who cares about the hair?! he has the gravitas, the poise, the manorisims the delivery. Irons overacted the creepy, and had some weird lisp going,, bad posteure. he didn't get Hevilokc at all.
Dance was golden. I felt he had Vetinari down. No hones, I was furious whn saw colour of magic, Irons reall messed up my favourite character, Thank allthe gods that Dance came and set it right.
Basically, we can think of Irons as acting the way the Patrician was written then, not too much personality out of him.
Plus, Terry basically thought it best he be played by "the bad guy from Die Hard". However, they couldn't get Alan Rickman, so they got "the other bad guy from Die Hard."
...Hey, there's a thought, they can try to get Alan Rickman! We already know he looks excellent in black! Course, he has white/gray hair I think, so he may need to dye it.
