I feel like I live in a world where everyone but me watches Game of Thrones. Fire-breathing dragons? The Red or White wedding? Winter is coming? WTF does all of this mean? To me … absolutely nothing.
And for those people who don't know jack about Game of Thrones besides the fact that people are obsessed with it, Samuel L. Jackson has a seven-minute Game of Thrones primer.
“The seasons in this place last a ridiculously long time, so when we start this, everyone has just come out of a long, long summer,” Jackson said. “So let’s just say, they ain’t too happy about winter coming.”
The beginner's guide is basically a plug for the show's iTunes channel, and it picked the right person. But beware for those with baby ears; it wouldn't be a Jackson video without a few cuss words.
