Ah it's the semis but not our semis, there's not much to get excited about there

I'm 90% sure i have the same lego house that street child had.

Was on the same time as Giggs' (possible) last game at Old Trafford. Not a chance.

The new Game of Mobile Homes is brilliant. Still laughing half an hour later.

Didn't know what that was, had to look it up. Gold. Those two guys are very funny.

I expect they'll make their way on to RTE sooner or later, where they won't be funny any more.

do you have to have seen much of GoT to be able to watch it?

I'm assuming it's a send-up yeah

They're really only small superficial links to it, I'd say they thought itd be a good way to bring in viewers.

It has nothing to do with Game of Thrones at all. It's just a couple of lads taking the piss out of traveller thrash talk videos. They might make the odd reference to game of thrones here and there but that's only in a pop culture sort of way.

im just being extra careful atm because we have just started watching GoT.

it is seemingly impossible to avoid spoilers for this show. even by just browsing the internet casually for nothing in particular I can end up accidentally finding so much stuff out, I've never known a show like it.

We just started watching it as well a couple of weeks back. The first three season are on Sky On Demand if you have it. Halfway through season 3 now.

Thanks for the heads up on Game of Mobile Homes. Class!! Loved their tallafornia swipe. It was gold for the first series. They actually started getting involved with TV3 then though, and were pally with the Tallafornians which took away alot of the appeal and bite. I can't see them getting pally with the knackers though :lol: brave feckers!

we've watched quite a few episodes in a short period of time and it must be starting to affect how I speak. someone called really early and woke me up the other day, when they apologised for waking me I said to them 'IT MATTERS NOT'

We've been reading the books at the same time and are well ahead of the series so it can be a bit weird getting deja vu watching the show at times because when you're reading the books you're imainging the characters and places exactly like they are in the show.
