Ed Sheeran’s GOT Cameo Went Over Terribly
Game of Thrones will be rolling out some celebrity cameos this season. The show is at it’s “We have ‘fuck you’ money so we can do whatever the hell we want.” The first one appeared in Episode 1 with Ed Sheeran being part of the Lannister army, and it really felt forced. Do I care that the British pop star phenom is appearing on the show? Not really at all. Do I care if it’s not done right? Kinda.
I’m not a TV critic. I might write a little bit about television, but the fact is I don’t really know what makes good television. Does a poorly acted celebrity cameo ruin an episode? Probably not. People are going to get worked up about Sheeran, but the fact is he’s a very small part in what could be a great Game of Thrones season. Brett Hinds is another rock star who will be appearing this season along with New York Mets healthy starting pitching staff. People need to find better hobbies if this will ruin their viewing experiences.
If you think this is going to be the only time that Thrones does this stuff, you’re sorely mistaken. Tonight was the start of Game of Thrones’ victory lap. It’s a long one as they have two seasons left, but it’s going to be really hard to screw this all of this goodwill up.
