Let Samuel L. Jackson Brilliantly Recap Game of Thrones for You

Swearing is coming

Sadie Gennis

If you want to start watching Game of Thronesbut feel overwhelmed by how much you need to catch up on, Samuel L. Jackson is here to help.

The actor narrated a seven-minute "Beginner's Guide" recap for HBO, which is the perfect blend of information and gratuitous cursing (aka exactly what you'd want from a Jackson recap).

Of course, Jackson knows he can't fully capture the intricacies of Westeros in a quick YouTube video. "All of this is nothing compared to what we didn't have a chance to get to: the backstabbing, the lying, the cheating, the parts that will make you feel uncomfortable," Jackson says. But don't worry, Thrones newbies. Jackson did make sure to at least touch on some badass dragon moments. Check it out in the video above. (Warning:Language NSFW, obviously.)
