My first ever NSFW post. Enjoy!

[ 7 ] November 8, 2012 |

One of the issues with teaching Game of Thrones is that nudity is treated very casually—so casually that the very idea of watching it with your mother feels deeply wrong. But it must be accounted for, and one of my classes decided to name the regular appearance of casual nudity after scenes in which Peter Baelish conducts important business while people behind him are getting down to business. (About which more shortly.) Today we were discussing scenes in which wolves and lions were isolated, and I was pointing out that in the exchange between Bran and Maester Luwin, the director prefers to give each of them their own frame instead allowing them to share a single. So I’m letting the scene run as I speak :

Littlefingering010
LITTLEFINGER11

When all of a sudden I look out at the class and everyone is staring at me. Not in that glass-eyed way that they normally do, but with an intensity that made me want to ask them about their corn. So I said:

Littlefingering07

More corn-eyes. So I asked again:

Littlefingering07a

At which point one brave soul spoke up: “Scott,” he said, “Quit Littlefingering us.”

    Nice! I’d love to introduce my students to this series, but I think their eyes would pop out of their sockets.

    Leave it to Theon Greyjoy to find new and exciting ways to screw up.
