James Corden's Parents Watching 'Game Of Thrones' For The First Time Ever Goes Hilariously Off The Rails

HBO's Game of Thrones returned on Sunday, April 14 for its final season, to considerable applause from fans around the world.

The first episode of the show's final season, "Winterfell" gave us the usual diet of sex and violence that we've grown accustomed to after years of watching (not to say this necessarily detracts from the story)!

Keep in mind that we're already eight seasons into one of the most critically acclaimed television shows of all time, which makes it all the more hilarious that Late Late Show host James Corden had his parents watch the show now for the very first time... and their reactions were priceless.

Malcolm and Margaret Corden, who live in High Wycombe in the UK, watched "Winterfell" and had absolutely no idea what was going on. Margaret thought that a mention of Sansa Stark (played by Sophie Turner) was, in fact, a reference to Santa.

When Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Daenerys proceed to make out––all the incest you could ever want from a Game of Thrones episode––in front of a waterfall, Malcolm comments:

"Yeah that was like us two growing up in front of the snowy waterfalls of... Bedfordshire. But I didn't have a dragon to lure you away with. I just had a Vauxhall Viva."

When Samwell Tarly (John Bradley) shows up, Margaret notes the resemblance to her son.

"God, he looks a bit like James when he was younger," she says, prompting her husband to respond:

"I reckon if he auditioned for this show he could play that role. Instead of poncing about in Los Angeles. Get some decent work."

Oh, and did we mention the shock Margaret exhibits when they see Bronn (Jerome Flynn) having sex with several prostitutes?

These two are too good and too pure for this world, and now they have a host of fans who can't get enough of them.

We hope these two continue watching the rest of the season, because five more weeks of their reactions would truly cement 2019's status as an amazing year all around.

When looking at a resume, it's easy to understand how prospective employers will assume someone is very intelligent based on their education and past experience.

But one shouldn't only assume someone's intelligence based on what they read.

More often than not, one can tell rather quickly that someone possesses above-average intelligence, based on how they speak, how they behave, or other telling details.

With each passing year of a marriage, couples will often discover that while they don't love each other any less than they once did, that spark their relationship used to carry has faded.

This will often lead these couples to look for ways to spice things up a bit.

Among the more popular experiments is inviting a third member to their bedroom.

Enticing as this prospect is, however, it's also easy to be intimidated by the reality of it, or even the mere suggestion of it.

"You either die the hero or live long enough to become the villain."

Though not necessarily a universal truth, all of us have witnessed unfortunate moments in our lives where we've seen this saying become a reality.

Be it seeing our favorite public figures take a serious fall from grace, someone we know and admire eventually disappointing us in a devastating manner, or even seeing ourselves turn into someone we promised we'd never become.

Sometimes we do things that have to be done.

And some of those things live in life's gray area of right and wrong.

What comes as a surprise to some is when we don't care if we're wrong.

We may still technically be in the right.

But morally and ethically, there may be some issues.

But still, many people don't care.
