Ever wonder what would happen if HBO’s Game of Thrones and the 1991 John Singleton film, Boyz n the Hood came together? Well, I certainly never did. And with Empire’s Taraji P. Henson hosting last night’s episode of NBC’s Saturday Night Live, a mock version of Game of Thrones, Empire-style would’ve been expected, especially since the two shows are often compared. But, leave it to SNL to pleasantly surprise us with a hysterical Boyz n the Hood-inspired take with the eighth kingdom of the realm, South Centros. The ‘new episode guest directed by John Singleton' starts out like any other Game of Thrones episode with the stunning title sequence of Westeros and the Seven Kingdoms, except this time around, a new kingdom will be explored. The eighth kingdom, South Centros inspired by 1991 American hood drama starring Ice Cube, Cuba Gooding Jr. and more, is a bit different from the typical Westeros. But their kingdom still experiences many of the same problems. The difference seems that South Centros has a tougher outlook on Westeros and beyond the wall. Kenan Thompson who plays ‘special guest’ Ice Cube in the parody is rocking the typical Night’s Watch garb and boasting that he isn’t afraid of what lies beyond the wall (specifically Lannisters) because he’s “breeding dire wolves”. That’s when we get our first cameo by none other than Jamie Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) who motions to Ice Cube a subtle ‘I’m watching you’.
