Game of Thrones vs Mad Men

Two of my very favorite shows happen to be Game of Thrones and Mad Men. Hilariously, the Huffington Post released these side by side character comparisons! I love it!

Tywin Lannister & Bert Cooper
Old lions still in the game. Don't underestimate them.

Bran Stark & Sally Draper
Intelligent, resourceful children subjected to terrible trials. Home life not ideal.

Sansa Stark & Joan Harris
Red-headed women disappointed by ambitious, abusive men.
Cersei Baratheon & Betty Francis
Bitter, wealthy, blonde mothers of three with serious narcissism issues.

Theon Greyjoy & Pete Campbell
Resentful aristocrats with serious family baggage and a constant need to assert their manhood. They can be impetuous, spoiled brats, but we often pity them as well.

Tyrion Lannister & Peggy Olson
Smart, thoughtful people working hard in an unforgiving, discriminatory environment. These two are among TV's most layered, complex characters (and is it just me or do they even look like they could be related?).

Daenerys Targaryen & Lane Pryce
Strangers in a strange land in search of new destinies. Quite the scrappers.

Bronn & Ken Cosgrove
Relatively normal people just doing a job and getting paid.
Ygritte & Megan Draper
Determined young women from north of the border.
Petyr Baelish & Harry Crane
Well-to-do but often classless operators. A little douchey at times, honestly. Nice threads, though.

Sandor "The Hound" Clegane & Stan Rizzo
Gruff, but more or less decent guys. Not exactly enlightened, but you'd want them to have your back in a crisis.

Jon Snow & Michael Ginsberg
Well-intentioned, sometimes awkward young men with unusual roots. I can't imagine not rooting for them as they try to find their place in the world.

Hodor & Trudy Campbell
Characters who just make me happy. And if it came down to a fight, they would absolutely win, one way or another.

Renly Baratheon & Sal Romano
Gay guys I want to hang with again. Soon.

Varys & Roger Sterling
Calculating, well-established power players who are frequently amusing and always up for some office politics. Invite them to your cocktail parties, but don't necessarily trust them.

Joffrey Baratheon & Greg Harris
Jackasses I want to see beheaded. Really soon.


  1. LOL this comparison is perfect! I love it!

  2. Great pictures, but I have to admit I have never seen either of these shows, although I have heard alot about them!

  3. Hilarious! People are clever.

  4. Bahaha! I love this post. I'm addicted to both of these shows & now I'm sad they're both gone until next year :(
