And now I’m reading reviews that are calling Skrein’s Darrios “stiff and void of feeling” and I’m wanting to throw things.
while I’m thinking about it, am I the only one bothered by the complete shift in acting direction for Daario Naharis on Game of Thrones? LIke, OK, if you couldn’t get Ed Skrein to come back…i’m weeping, but I can understand. Shit happens.
BUT DAARIO NAHARIS HAD AN ACCENT THAT ISN’T THAT ONE. HE HAD LONG, LUXURIOUS HAIR THE RIVAL OF ANY IN WESTEROS. HE GAVE SCANDALOUS SEXY LOOKS THAT MADE HIS STRANGE ASS FACE SOMEHOW DESIRABLE. HE WAS CHARMING AND QUIRKY AND ADORABLE.
and you replace him with yet another bland ass white boy with a neck beard who looks and acts like every other bland ass white boy on this show. It took me two whole episodes to realize y’all are actually serious about shit and yeah, that’s supposed to be Daario. For fucks sake, you could have TRIED.
But then you let Jamie have starbucks at the wedding so I guess everything is game.
We know who you are, we’ve heard all about you, but hearing is one thing.
Everytime I hear “(The Legend of) Miss Baltimore Crabs” from Hairspray all I can picture is GoT’s Cersei.
GRRM should just end the series with Asha on a boat eating pretzels and wearing sunglasses and listening to muffled 90s ska punk while everything is on fire behind her

Since making that post, I did actually find and read that scene. I agree it is gross—but not to the point that I could call Tyrion a complete, nonredeemable monster/asshole/whatever-name-you-want-here. No more than I could level such a title at Lady Stark, or Jamie, or Dany no matter the utterly shit things that they have done.
Regardless, I think them not doing that in the TV show is one change I could absolutely live with.
