Apparently being a burgeoning bad ass in Westeros isn’t good enough for Maisie Williams, nor is, apparently, appearing on just one big TV show. The Game of Thrones actress has been cast for a guest starring role in an episode of the long-running sci-fi series’ ninth season, albeit as what, we’re not exactly sure. She could be a hero, she could be a villain, or she could be some random person that The Doctor helps. On the other hand though, Williams looks quite comfy at the controls of the TARDIS in the picture above, so it begs the question, are we looking at a companion in the making? After all, everyone has two franchises nowadays. (more…)

Oh the tap dance we all do these days to avoid posting tripping over spoilers for our favorite shows. AMC felt the wrath of the well-timed spoiler when they posted one about a character death on their The Walking Dead Facebook page an hour before the West coast aired the episode. Another show that often has folks up in arms about spoilers and trying to prevent their book reading friends from spoiling for them is George R.R. Martin and HBO‘s Game of Thrones. Here’s the thing though, Martin doesn’t understand what everyone is so upset about when it comes to spoilers. (more…)

George R.R. Martin

It’s been a running joke that George R.R. Martin needs to write faster. When the HBO Game Of Thrones series was first announced, after all the fanfare and rejoicing died down more than a few people wondered what would happen if the television series caught up to the books. It was a valid concern considering the time frames between books. Well, now we know. (more…)

Game of Thrones Season 5 is almost upon us. To excite and tease eagerly awaiting fans, comes a new heart pounding trailer from Apple. This new look into the happenings of Westeros shows tons of new footage; including (but hardly limited to) the “breaking the wheel” monologue from Daenerys, in which she plots to end the cycle of family violence that has plagued her high born land, and more footage of Jonathan Pryce’s character the High Sparrow.

Game of Thrones is a super serious show. For a live action fantasy it’s rife with violence, torment, politics, death, and copious amounts of nudity. Warring factions, family disputes, power plays, and survival…. all that is an illusion shattered when you watch this behind the scenes Blooper reel from Game of Thrones season 4.

Be warned that minor spoilers lie ahead if you’re not caught up. (more…)

Last night’s HBO Special Game of Thrones: A Day in the Life aired, but most of us were probably watching the return of The Walking Dead and then the premiere of Better Call Saul on AMC.

Martin‘s best selling books online can check it out on HBO’s YouTube page today. For Free! (more…)

“Nice being married to you. I’m leaving the country.”

In a perfect world, I’d be in charge and everybody would be singing carols to my name after I invented the ‘Game Of Thrones’ theme park. The games would be varied, like…‘Arrest Tyrion!’ where you chase a little person around and try to put chains on the bastard. Carry a tree around like The Mountain did the other day. Or try ‘Ew, Daddy Poops.’ In that match, you attempt to guess which crapper out of 4 that Tywin Lannister is doing his business in. Then there would be ‘Sullied Or Not Sullied?’ That’s where you ask a contestant sexual questions like, ” Can you describe what boobs feel like?” And if they don’t know the answers, then they’re “unsullied” and have to get their junk chopped off. That’s a bad idea. Now everyone knows why I’m not in charge. Oh well…Pop Up Restaurant then. (more…)
