Look, I get it. When the first commercials for this new show called Game of Thrones started airing on HBO, you looked at them and thought, "Blech! A bunch of elves running around dungeons, stabbing each other with magic swords. No thanks!" And then your co-worker (the one who wears his cell phone on his belt) told you that it's all based on a popular fantasy novel series, and you were like, "Even worse!"

But now, here we are three years later, and everyone—even people who aren't abject dorks—are talking about the evil king's murder and the dwarf's trial by combat, and curiosity is getting the best of you, so you're saying, "I give up, nerds! I'll watch your goddamn Dungeons & Dragons show!"
