It’s never too late to jump on the Game of Thrones bandwagon. But if you want to cut some corners and save time, let Samuel L. Jackson bring you up to speed.

The show’s official YouTube channel shared a compilation video featuring a series recap narrated by the former Jedi and S.H.I.E.L.D. leader.

Jackson hits all the pertinent points: The Starks are not so great at staying alive; Joffrey’s an insufferable brat, to say teh least; the White Walkers are going to doom everyone; Cersei is basically Marie Antoinette; and Daenerys is slowly building up a force to take down everyone.

The actor admits he’s speaking in broad strokes: “All of this is is nothing compared to what we didn’t have a chance to get to,” he says, “the backstabbing, the lying, the cheating, the parts that will make you feel uncomfortable.”

See Jackson’s recap above, including him saying, as you might expect he would, “You want to see a dragon, motherf—er? Here you go!”
