Game of Thrones’ Nikolaj Coster-Waldau Joins Jimmy Kimmel Live for a Full House Parody
In an alternate universe, it’s nice to think that all television happens in the same world and that characters never really die, as much as move onto their next journey. Perhaps that’s the case with Game of Thrones’ Jaime Lannister. Considering how bad-guy-turned-good-guy (turned protect-my-sister-one-last-time because character arcs don’t matter guy) didn’t seem to get the finale he deserved, why not add a coda that takes him to San Francisco? That’s the general idea in Jimmy Kimmel Live’s beautiful new skit, Full House Lannister.
Following his untimely demise under a pile of rubble, Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) has made his way over to the Tanner household for his next big stint: stepping in as Uncle Jaime alongside Danny Tanner (Bob Saget) and Joey Gladstone (Dave Coulier) in a Full House reboot. The skit opens with Joey enlisting Jaime’s help with opening a jar of pickles with a sword—cue literal laugh track. When Joey says he only needed a hand, Jaime tosses him his right one before Joey says, “Cut! It! Off!”
But then the skit takes that serious Full House tone while Jaime explains he’s been having trouble with his sister. As Danny tries to explain the whole situation away with short wisdoms, Jaime reveals that he got his sister pregnant…again. Personally, this seems like a great place for a laugh track, but instead Joey steps in. When Jaime tries to rebuff his jokes, Joey says, “No, I was going to say quit fucking your sister.” Honestly, sound advice.
This is only supposed to be a three minute skit on late night, but with the intense fervor of Game of Thrones fans, here’s an idea: Instead of a petition to have a rewrite of the ending, why not funnel that energy into just getting this series picked up? Keep the awful wigs and never let Jaime wear anything other than his body armor. My only additional suggestion is bring Lady Mormont back to life as the new Kimmy Gibbler and give this show the time to breathe it deserves.
