Some people on my facebook feed or at my workplace who pride themselves either on not being up to date on pop culture or on not reading anything remotely fantastical have finally gotten a vague idea that this Game of Thrones television thing is somehow popular in some circles. So they have asked me to explain it to them in a way that they can understand. At this point it's a bit much to try to break down everything that the story includes. And if they didn't pay attention the first time I tried years prior I usually won't have much patience for doing so again. Maybe I will start using the below new 60 second quick draw video shorts on the lives of Ned Stark, Robb Stark, Joffrey Baratheon, Ygritte, and Khal Drogo to explain the important story elements of the Game of Thrones series to people. I think the videos are good accurate summations of the key events. The videos are useful if someone has a short attention span. Of course hopefully these videos are also amusing to people who've read the books or watched the show.
