Game of Thrones: 5 Things We Love (Slash Are Obsessed With)

Originally posted 04/07/2013 04:20PM

HBO's Game of Thrones, now at the start of its third season, seems to have been weighted into a catapult and sent soaring through the air: What was already a massive hit has become a buzzed-about, addictive phenomenon.

The show is – as one says, of such epic productions – teeming with characters. It swarms with plots, subplots and side-plots. If you missed the first two seasons, you might be afraid to just jump in. Don't be.

Just remember that everyone's motive is essentially the same: Win the Iron Throne and control all the kingdoms. (Think of Jerry Seinfeld chasing down the marble rye, but there are hundred of Jerrys and only one loaf.)

Game of Thrones' Maisie Williams Does the 'Cinnamon Challenge'

Guess you could say she paid the iron spice.

Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams, who plays tough-as-nails Arya Stark on the HBO favorite, attempted the "cinnamon challenge" – an Internet meme where people attempt to eat a tablespoon of cinnamon and go a minute without drinking anything (and film the results, of course).

Trying "loads" of cinnamon, the actress, 15, manages to keep the cinnamon down for a few seconds before spitting it out in a cloud of smoke ... much like a dragon.

"Why is this so entertaining, watching people suffer?" her friend asks. Williams would know: The brutal Game of Thrones is a runaway hit.

Peter Dinklage Should Win an Emmy

While HBO's epic fantasy series Game of Thrones has stirred much debate over its nudity and violence, Peter Dinklage's scene-stealing turn as Tyrion Lannister has been almost universally praised, even scoring the American actor an Emmy nomination for outstanding supporting actor in a drama series.

His recognition should come as no surprise to fans of the show and author George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire book series, on which Thrones is based, but for newbies looking to understand Dinklage's appeal, here's a few reasons why we think the actor, 42, deserves Emmy gold for bringing Tyrion to life:
