PeppermintGlow : stick it up your bum [panting] [panting inTENSIFIES] ...treason.

The Dom : If we could all be respectful of the fact that some people are not up to date with the show and or the books and avoid posting spoilers in the comments I'd be most grateful. I say this as someone who deeply regrets not thinking once and ruining the surprise for a bunch of people.

ThatAilurophile : "He did not, however, got this..." 😂

Buford T. Justice : You just can't treason with a mad king.

thessan11 : I'm sobbing with laughter. These voices are amazing

Lana Alba : Also, "Stormborn" will "almost certainly be the only title" Daenerys will pick up in her life. That is very certainly most certain! Sir, your videos are a riot! Thank you.

R3GARnator : You should make the mad king a recurring character!

prince : I don't care about GoT at all, yet I still watch these videos. Why? Because The Dom is just that awesome of course.


IZathrus : I would be completely happy if all you ended up doing for Game of thrones/A Song Of Ice And Fire where these style of recaps for the events of the seasons and or the books.

Ariella Kahan-Harth : The Aerys voice killed me! He sounds like Gollum if he was high. TRRREEEAAAASSSONNNN!

Something Generic : Rickard and Brandon Starks death were so bloody gnarly. One was roasted alive in his own armour and the other strangled himself in a desperate attempt to save his father. Damn you George with your creative and emotional deaths 😢

Anon Mouse : The best bit about Aerys burning the Starks was that he gave them a trial, but chose fire as his champion. Lol, what a droll troll he was.

Shelby Hotz : Gotta say, your Aerys voice is pretty hilarious

Volran : We need more Mad King in the next videos. He was hillarious. 😍

TheApachacha : You realise, of course, that now your comment section shall be a screeching litany of "TREEEEEASON" for _all eternity_, right ? : P

Kattywompus : I'm dying over the fact that you used a picture of Elsa to represent baby Daenerys, it's amazing

coynie3 : "... earning her daughter what would almost certainly be the ONLY title she would ever pick up in her life." So true. I've always said Daenerys didn't have enough titles :P

saikin13 : I fully encourage "TREASON" becoming a recurring joke during these reviews!

Claudia Gurr : I never thought I'd say this, but I love the mad king! :D

MasterPoppers : It should be noted that while these events pretty much happened as stated in the canon of the show, Robert's Rebellion in the books is extremely mysterious. While the sack of King's Landing did occur, and the Battle at the Trident happened as described, the rest of the war is frankly uncertain to book readers.

Domanese : Fantastic. Now I will never be able to think of Mad King Aerys without thinking of Andy Serkis parodying Gollum parodying Mad King Aerys. "PREEEEEEECCCCIIIIIOOOOUUUSSSS!!!!"

Ferenc Szaffenauer : Burndemall!

MandalorSkyrd : I was just wondering why do you always brush off the Greyjoy and the Iron Islands? The Greyjoy are one the Great Families and the Iron Island are one of the Seven kingdoms (I know it's a "very brief" recent history but still ^^) Otherwise nice recap, love your Aerys :D TREASON!!

1987MartinT : Your King Aerys is pretty spot on.

Ana Júlia Albuquerque : i don't have money for patreon yet so i don't know where else to write this but... would you ever consider doing a lost in adaptation of american gods by neil gaiman?

Trillian X : When can we buy the burn them all song on iTunes?

Amber Collier : the scream sound effect did my dog a frighten :o

Dave Katzin : Mad King Aerys-- your new recurring character, yes?

Victoura56 : Seriously Dom, how much fun did you have doing the voices? Friggin' hilarious!!! XD

Mis Shelly : lol, my new favorite song! Burn them all burn them all burn them all burn them alllllll, burn them all burn them all... Omg, it MAY, be as good as "The DOOM song"

C.B. Smith : When you've read through all the main books and yet still learn something in these videos*

Clare Ann : I’m gonna be honest... this is way more entertaining than the books and the show.


lilfizzhead : SPOILER ALERT R+L=Stein

Catherine Morrill : Technically one thing you mentioned isn't common knowledge at the start of the books. Jaime never told anyone that Aerys had arranged to destroy kings landing with wildfire leaving most of westeros to assume he turned on the king as part of his dads power grab.

Heather Calun : I wouldn't mind if you used your paper doll schtick to teach actual history.

Elliot Jenner : The whole "burn them all" thing was not really general knowledge (there was a general tendency for people to believe the Stark side of the story which conveniently left out that part in favor of "the Lannisters are othbreaking bastards" narrative).

metalskie : I love the idea of you fastidiously making Lyanna on dolldivine lol

Tadicuslegion78 : And thus I take the unpopular position the Targaryens got what was coming to them..and also why I wouldn't last five minutes in Game of Thrones because when Danerys gets into one of her many whiny tantrums about Westeros and her father I would have been that guy who tells her, "Look your father was an insane monster who pissed off the right number of wrong people and your oh so perfect brother Rhaegar everyone praises, well this is all on him because he couldn't keep it in his pants. And the way you're going about here in Easteros, I give it 2 years at most before someone chops your head off because you're a lousy queen

Matrim42 : Burn them all, burn them all, burn them all, burn them all, burn them all, burn them all, burn them all, burn them all, burn the mall, burn the mall, burn the mall, burn the mall, burn the mall, burn the mall, ban the mall, ban the mall, ban the mall, ban the mall, ban the mall, ban the Moor, ban the Moor, ban the Moor, ban the Moor, ban the Moor, ban the Moor, burr the Moor, burr the Moor, burr the Moor, burr the Moor, burr the Moor, burr the Moor, burr the Moor, burr the Moor, furthermore, furthermore, furthermore, furthermore, furthermore, furthermore, furthermore...

AnimeKandy27 : You were having way too much fun with Aerys... :)

gamelover260 : You need to do a series like this but with real life history

Attila Hendrich : Burn the mall.

McCammalot : I was actually surprised and shocked when this ended. Like, I flinched when the credit began rolling, I was that engrossed. 0__0 Do more, pretty please?

Guilherme Zerati Alves : "Stormborn was almost certainly be the only title she would ever pick up in her life" pfff HAHAHA

kousetsuhana : I always though these comments sounded cliché, but.. here goes Thanks Dom, I'm going through a tough time and your videos make me smile. I can't watch the ending without laughing out loud, you're awesome! :)

GyroMurphy : Sooooo....burn them all?

BRADEN W HICKMAN : dom is best king aerys 2

Mr Freddo Renton : TREEE-Beard
