In a hilarious parody video, Jimmy Kimmel Live imagines a surreal Game of Thrones prequel spinoff where Jaime Lannister joins Danny and Joey of Full House for Full House Lannister. After eight enormous seasons, HBO's fantasy epic Game of Thrones has finally wrapped up, and it's safe to say fans are divided over the way the show ultimately resolved its many storylines and character arcs.
Fans may be saddened and disappointed that Game of Thrones is over - and that it arguably went out on a less-than-satsifying note - but they can rest assured the future will bring at least one spinoff show that will return to the world of Westeros. Set thousands of years before the events of Game of Thrones, the spinoff possibly titled The Long Night will go deeper into the lore of the Seven Kingdoms, chronicling the "true origin of the White Walkers." While this is the only spinoff that's known to be going into production, with a pilot set to begin filming in summer 2019, George R.R. Martin himself recently said HBO has a total of three spinoffs still in development.
Nobody knows anything about these potential spinoffs, beyond the few details that have come out about The Long Night, but fans certainly have lots of ideas. One huge Game of Thrones fan, Jimmy Kimmel, has indeed unleashed his own concept for a spinoff and it's unsurprisingly a hilarious one. Jimmy Kimmel Live gave the world a little taste of the potential prequel, Full House Lannister, which would team Jaime Lannister with Joey and Danny from the classic sitcom Full House. See the clip below:
In keeping with the true spirit of Full House, the jokes on Full House Lannister are pretty broad and silly. For instance, when Joey (Dave Coulier) can't get the pickle jar open, Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) comes to the rescue with his sword - which proves to be a terrible implement for opening a pickle jar. Naturally, there are many jokes about Jaime's golden hand (the new variation on Coulier's "Cut it Out" catch phrase is about as obvious as it gets). This being a show that includes a character from Game of Thrones, things of course take a very dark turn. Jaime is telling Danny (Bob Saget) all about his problems with Cersei, and as Danny tries to give him a pep talk, Jaime lets it out that he got Cersei pregnant, at which point Danny decides Jaime's problems are too big for him to handle. Naturally, a dragon later makes a cameo appearance over San Francisco.
Obviously, such a wacky comedic take is not exactly what most fans have in mind when they think about possible Game of Thrones spinoffs that may be coming. Whatever HBO finally does by way of returning to Westeros, it's going to be very difficult for the new show or shows to reach the lofty heights the record-breaking original was able to scale over the course of its eight mostly wildly popular seasons.
