Will white people never learn?
John Snow (of course) and Robb Stark
“Your skin brings to mind fine parchment, or the rose petals I use to clean my ass.”
Robert Baratheon (young and old), The Mountain, Tywinn Lannister, and Varys.
Thoros of Mir and The Red Viper of Dorne
Without Ahmad, and his SERIOUS family issues, this show loses almost all of its intrigue and some of the most amazing plot twists there are in any series on television.
Littlefinger, Cersei Lannister, and Qyburn
The Queen of Thorns, Olenna Tyrell, Margery Tyrell, and Cersei Lannister
Michelle Yeoh – Yu Shu Lien from CTHD, and one of the top ladies on my “Broadswords” list – stars on Marco Polo as “Lotus,” the beautiful and deadly love interest to 100 Eyes, and absolutely poisonous thorn in the side of the power-hungry Khan.
She wants to see China freed of the yolk of Kublai and the Mongols, and will do ANYTHING to make that happen. Is she the deadly force that will topple Marco’s ambition? His Khan’s power? And everything the Mongols have worked for? Possibly. But maybe she's something more.
Watch the show. You will not – I promise – be disappointed with anything she does (except 1 thing, sorry).
I would put Marco Polo up against any period piece on the market, and would be completely confident that anyone would rate it the Khan of Khans of TV.
