Two years ago in Disability Thinking: “Jaimie Lannister’s Hand and Other Game Of Thrones Notes”
“Game Of Thrones” is a jam-packed show to begin with. It also happens to be jam-packed with disabled characters. There is so much interesting disability stuff to un-pack, that I could probably do a whole podcast just on disability in “Game Of Thrones.” In fact, the next episode of the Disability.TV Podcast will be about a particular scene on the show, centered on the prison cell conversations of Tyrion Lannister, arguably the most consistently interesting disabled character currently on TV. I wish the video I embedded in this post still played, because that scene between Tyrion and Shae still moves me.
