Explaining "Game of Thrones"

For the layman who doesn't know his Little Finger from his Khaleesi, the large number of characters on "Game of Thrones" can be confusing. So, if you're not clear on just what a certain character is all about, below find an explanation of 1/1,000th of the ensemble that makes up "Game of Thrones."

She's the Princess Diana of "Game of Thrones." 
Too bad for her, King Joffrey makes Prince Charles look like Jesus Christ. 

Ouch! Theon is still the Michael Scott of the show, but now he's maybe also the John Wayne Bobbitt. (That did happen, right? I had my hands over my eyes when the knife was taken out).

This dude from north of the wall is obviously the show's Yukon Cornelius. 
(There's probably all kinds of Bumbles running around north of the wall). 

Here we have the Dowager Countess of House Tyrell. 
(Although the real Dowager Countess back at Downton would 
NEVER allow Lady Mary to wed King Joffrey!) 

Arya is a sword-wielding Yentl.

Jamie, aka Kingslayer, is the Lannister version of Sawyer from "Lost." They're similar looking sexy bad boys (although Sawyer didn't have a sister, thankfully). Jamie has also recently become the show's Buster from "Arrested Development." (Not because he loves juice boxes).

Finally, every show should follow "Game of Thrones" lead and get their own Otho from "Beetlejuice."
