Bran Stark Season 4

Bran Stark in Season 5

Spoilers! OK, no, not really. Just in case we lose track of time and forget that the children actors of Game of Thrones are indeed aging–and quickly–here’s a great little look back at Bran from season 1 through 4 and what an imgur user believes he’ll look like for Season 5. Well played, well played. Thanks to Nerd Approved for sharing that on Facebook!

The Iron Throne Is Mine

Khal Drogo: A Cautionary Tale in the Value of Neosporin

Jimmy Kimmel and Jason Mamoa discuss the most accurate and anticlimactic death yet on “Game of Thrones” Some could say that the death of the hulking Khal Drogo from George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire saga is a cautionary tale about disregarding the value of antiseptic. The Dothraki War Lord wins an impressive battle with an unruly soldier, only to succumb to infection from a nick in the chest left by an errant arahk (the scythe-like blade favored by Dothraki). Of course, there’s the…

What It’s Like to Live Spoiler-Free Post “Game of Thrones”

In a world of shocked Social Media Enthusiasts determined to ruin it for you. Last night marked the grand finale of the fourth season of “Game of Thrones” and, according to the World Wide Web, it was a shocker. As for this writer? Well, I’m comfortable assuming it was chock full of those classic George R.R. Martin induced “WTF Moments.” But I can’t technically say that I know with any certainty. Because I haven’t seen that last four episodes of the season. Because  reasons. But…

Father’s Day is Sunday…And So Is The Game of Thrones Finale

HBO wants to wish Dad’s everywhere a Happy Father’s Day, and also: don’t forget to tune in for the grand, sweeping season finale of Game of Thrones.

Like we really needed the reminder.  As season four of the epic fantasy series wraps up,  show creators Dan Weiss and David Benioff have been persistent in letting people know that this finale is the “best finale [they’ve] ever done, bar none.” In fact, the episode in question — chillingly titled “The Children” — has been submitted for two Emmy’s: Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series and Outstanding Prosthetic Makeup. Though every episode of this phenomenal season has set a new viewing record every week, “The Children” is the first ever submitted for Emmy consideration.  Clearly, Weiss and Benioff are fairly confident that the cast and crew have truly outdone themselves this time.  In a statement, the duo praised the hard work of everyone on set saying, “The performances from our cast, the direction from Alex Graves, the VFX work, the new cues from Ramin Djawadi – all of it came together in perhaps the finest hour we’ve produced.”

All this to say, get your Father’s Day priorities straight and be ready to tune in for the 66 minute finale, this sunday on HBO at 9pm/8c. Happy Father’s Day…Winter is Coming.

Youtube Rec: Those “Game of Thrones” Wildlings Are Badass…But What Are They Exactly?

So you’ve never read the series (A Song of Ice and Fire), but you love Game of Thrones

…yet no matter how thorough, the show creators can’t give you all the details of that rich background George R.R. Martin has created. It just can’t happen in 10 episodes at an hour long each. Which is something of a shame because there’s a lot of really fascinating subplots which occur in the book that, naturally, don’t make the cut to adaptation. Sometimes that’ll leave you with questions, and sometimes it leaves you entirely ignorant of pretty cool extraneous info.

Prime example? The Wildlings. There’s plenty which is hinted at and revealed about the self-titled “Free People” during Jon Snow’s time with them in season 3, and so far in Season 4, we’ve even met with those freaky cannibalistic Thenns. But did you know the Thenns aren’t actually Wildlings? Or they are to people South of The Wall, but they don’t identify with The Free People. Sound confusing? Check out our youtube rec of the week from Emergency Awesome! This guy does a phenomenal job breaking down the complex nature of society North of The Wall and filling viewers in on all those tidbits which just weren’t relevant to the Game of Thrones narrative.

Got comic strip

GoT: Should Have Seen That Coming

Nerd Approved released this incredibly accurate and yet hilarious comic of how it would be if one of us were a character on Game of Thrones. Yeah, this pretty much sums it up. This is exactly how I would act and most likely what would happen in the story line. Also, if the final frame happens, Nicole Wakelin called it first. And then we’d die. The End. A short story by George R.R. Martin

George R.R. Martin

George R.R. Martin Isn’t Your Average Author…

For a multitude of reasons, of course. Perhaps the most interesting? Forget Microsoft Office Suite, Martin writes on Wordstar 4.0 — running on DOS.

Obviously — inevitably —  George R.R. Martin has a secondary computer where the author can browse the internet and check his email, but for writing his thousand page epics for A Song of Fire and Ice?  Wordstar 4.0 offers a secluded space free of distractions like those pesky spellchecks or the random facebook/reddit/livejournal detours. Catch Martin’s take on his unusual writing habits in an interview with late night talk show host Conan.

Tyrion Lannister

Youtube Rec: The Trial of Tyrion Lannister

We love this animated short on the upcoming trial of beloved Game of Thrones character, Tyrion Lannister. You will too.

A sister who wants him dead, a father acting as judge who also wants him dead, his wife gone and no witness willing to come forward — George R.R. Martin certainly made things look bleak for Tyrion when he wrote this bit. How will Tyrion make out in the upcoming trial? One youtube user has an idea…

Just days away from the actual airing of the HBO episode, Tyrion is brought to trial in this animated skit for slaying the king, but how will he defend himself when everyone he trusts already fled King’s Landing?”

Game of Thrones, episode 6: “The Laws of Gods and Men” airs this Sunday night on HBO at 9pm/8C.

Game of Thrones Sparks a New Controversy

Sunday night’s episode of “Game of Thrones” featured one particular scene which called into question an entire character arc and left several outraged. In the most recent episode of Game of Thrones, “Breaker of Chains,”  viewers watched as, in the midst of a candlelight vigil for her son, King Joffrey Baratheon, Cersei Lannister was raped by her twin brother/lover/father of her children, Jaime Lannister. Several bloggers have taken to the internet to express their opinion about the scene, and how it deviated from the original content. Since…

Peter Dinklage Tyrion Lannister

Game of Tyrion

It’s fair enough to say Tyrion Lannister is one of the best characters we’ve seen on TV in a long time And Danbarham.com has made a homage worthy of sharing. I really, really wish I could embed that on our website, because it’s absolutely hilarious for an early Monday morning, but alas, you’ll probably have to click on the website. What can we say about this incredible character? For all the ‘dwarf’ movies out there, Peter Dinklage has undoubtedly upstaged them all.  For as often…
