Mindy Kaling's 'Game Of Thrones' Commentary Is Exactly What We Were All Thinking As We Watched
Listen, just because we love a TV show doesn't mean that we don't have some valid questions while watching. Or that we can't also recognize when there may or may not be continuity issues. With that in mind, Mindy Kaling tweeted about Game of Thrones, and her slightly snarky yet impossibly funny commentary about the show, is so damn relatable. Hey, no one's perfect, and that counts for the people who make our favorite fictional worlds.
Game of Thrones isn't exactly an easy show to watch, what with the various, intersecting storylines, the constant tragedy, and the disappearance and reemergence of characters seasons apart. So things can get, in a word, confusing. At the same time, however, Game of Thrones is an absolutely enthralling and captivating show, and for every gripe that longtime fans have, there are at least five other things we can list that they're doing so, so right. In light of this fact, Kaling boldly tweeted out both her frustrations and her appreciation for the show and her musings while watching are something you'll definitely be nodding your head in agreement to.
Here are some tweets from Kaling that prove that she is all of us when watching Game of Thrones:
Firstly, She Gets Behind On Viewing Like The Rest Of Us
I'm caught up on game of thrones now, if anyone wants to engage me about it— Mindy Kaling (@mindykaling) December 28, 2016
I'm also guilty of not watching on time despite the last few episodes being overwhelmingly lauded by my friends and family.
Finally, Someone Said It
When Rickon died I was like who Rickon— Mindy Kaling (@mindykaling) December 28, 2016
Same, TBH. Like, I remembered their were a bunch of Starks — Robb, and Sansa, and Arya, Bran, and... Vixen? No. Donner? Cupid? Hmm... still no... I kid, but, it was a really, really long time since Rickon was a thing.
She's All About The Game Of Thrones Girl Power
For better or worse. Because, you know, Cersei can be... difficult.
She Knows What's Up When It Comes To Characters
Obvs Cersei and Daenyrs. But I love Davos, Lyanna, oberyn and anyone with greyscale https://t.co/Bd9lGpJ4zO— Mindy Kaling (@mindykaling) December 28, 2016
I, too, have loved everyone with Greyscale. RIP Shireen.
She Applies The Show To Other Art Forms
cersei is basically Casey afflecks characters in Manchester by the sea— Mindy Kaling (@mindykaling) December 28, 2016
The parallels you see in literally every other cinematic experience is undeniable. And maybe slightly obsessive. So sue us, OK?
She Also Likes To Think She Knows More About The Show's Direction Than She Actually Does
David Benioff and I went to the same college so sometimes I pretend he tells me #GameOfThrones spoilers on a secret email chain we're on— Mindy Kaling (@mindykaling) December 28, 2016
Game of Thrones makes conspiracy theorists of us all.
So, you see, Kaling has just strengthened the bond and camaraderie between Game of Thrones fans more than ever. If an actress and writer of TV feels like we do, we have to be sort of on the right track about our likes and critiques.
