Well since your name has King in it... You are actually obliged! I took some London coworkers to 42nd Street Manhattan and we went into the odd ball, like Guinness museum of oddities, right there next to the wax museum. Low and behold they have a hughe medieval section to it. I was like wow, now I look like some crazy nut for taking them there. But we have this real big museum called the Cloisters, a true top notch museum, which is really detailed and dedicated to that time. Thank God for Cambridge and Oxford or we would still be dealing with the Joffreys of the world. There could be no greater gift to the world.
I think the thing you have to remember is that Ramsay is probably 10 years older or so than Joffrey AND he is in an environment that encourages his behaviour. Joffrey is younger and his behaviour is only begrudgingly tolerated at best. I think they are from the same mold, but right now Ramsay is obviously worse.
I hate to say this but all of the haters here are baby formation of both guys. Its just that its suppressed and it doesn't have proper venting mechanations. First you have to be a hater. Then you have your mind introduced to ways to cause pain. Then there is no stopping it. When you have only one guy in every 30,000 living good it breeds the negative side of the brain into madness.
Yes, the show has done a good job at how evil he is but IMO he's more evil in the book. In the books he owns a pack of dogs.. "Ramsay's bitches." He would torture people and let them "escape" kinda like how he let Theon escape in the show. He would then take his pack of dogs and hunt them down. If he caught them, he would flay them, chop 'em up, and feed them to his dogs.
From the ASoiaF wiki: Ramsay openly enjoys abusive and sick practices such as having young women stripped naked and released into the Bolton forests, before hunting them with a pack of feral dogs. He gives a quick death to women who give him good sport (after raping them first), then flays their corpses. He likes to name his dogs after the women he enjoys most to "honor" them. The women who don't give him good sport are raped and then flayed alive. All the skins of his kills are brought back with him to the Dreadfort as gruesome trophies. The bodies of the woman are fed to his dogs.
He is miles more psychotic than Joffrey.
I think this says more about George RR Martin than anything Seriously dude, WTF!
I feel like The Hound deserves to be in that supporting actor category as well.
Jon Snow not so much.
The Hound's timing is off the hook much like Tywin and Tyrion's. For a big guy he's killing those scenes with Arya. Its a hard thing to do when the girl is constantly being victimized by the world and you can't coddle her, but is still her protector. His back and forth with her is every bit as good as Tywin/Arya scenes, and he is always eating while delivering well timed lines.
