It's hard not to love "Game of Thrones," what with all the intrigue, sex, war, Natalie Dormer, beheading, betrayal and did we mention Natalie Dormer? But there's another reason to watch: You can actually learn some vital Guy Code lessons.
1. Loyalty To Your Bros
As a member of the Night's Watch, Jon Snow (everyone's favorite illegitimate son) has sworn off girls, so all he's got left are his buddies. Whether he's backing up Sam Tarly or saving the Lord Commander from the undead, Lord Snow's the kind of friend you want in a bar fight.
2. Don't Be "That Guy"
On the other end of the spectrum, we've got two of the worst Code Breakers on TV: Jaime Lannister and Joffrey Baratheon. On top of generally acting like a douche, Jaime's sleeping with his sister, the queen, a.k.a. the boss' wife. It's not a pretty combo.
Like father like son, all Joffrey does is talk about how awesome he is and threaten to put people's heads on spikes. His uncle even tries to get him laid, in a threesome no less, and what does he do? He has one girl beat the other to death. On top of it all, he treats his girl's family like crap. Major no-no.
3. Confidence Is Key
It can't be easy when most of your family hates you, let alone when you're four feet and change. Haters gonna hate, but Tyrion will always have the last word despite his stature. Not even the king is safe from the Halfman's pimp hand, and he knows it.
4. Beware The Friend Zone
Ser Jorah Mormont is proof that even a badass knight-turned-scoundrel can suffer the same romantic problems as any regular dude. It's no secret that Jorah wants to be the Mother of Dragons's sugar daddy, but can't bring himself to say it. He better make a move or just move on--otherwise this is gonna end up "Game of Sixteen Candles."
