    Game of Thrones

    I know its early but who's excited for season 4!

    Season 4 will be mostly based on the second half of A Storm of Swords

    The War of the Five Kings is drawing to a close, but the the blood is just beginning to flow.

    New Castings? HBO has cast in known roles Joel Fry as Hizdahr zo Loraq, Roger Ashton-Griffiths as Mace Tyrell, Pedro Pascal as Prince Oberyn Martell, Indira Varma as Oberyn’s lover Ellaria Sand, Yuri Kolokolnikov as Styr, Magnar of Thenn, and ‘Sherlock’ star Mark Gatiss as Tycho Nestoris. Hafthor Julius Bjornsson will take over the role of Gregor “The Mountain” Clegane from Ian Whyte.

    executive producer David Benioff said that he is really exicted for season 4 but "Season 5 gives me nightmares." According to star Jerome Flynn who plays Bronn, that season 4 will have some narrative changes from the books. Would you readers be OK with major departures from the books?

    George RR Martin wrote Episode 2.

    Game of Thrones season 5 has already been confirmed by HBO.

    Ok the real reason I created the thread ...

    Did Daenerys Targaryen break guest-right in Astapor when buying the unsullied?

    No she didn't. That is a Westeros tradition. There has never been mention of anyone following Guest Rite is Essos.


    Michiel Huisman who will be playing Daario Naharis now has been bumped up to series regular. He was the junkie on Treme and probably one of the worst actors on that show IMO. Not looking forward to him taking over the role.

    Oh yeah but will people look down on her for doing it like that in Essos (I guess she will be a Dragon riding foreigner anyway)

    Huisman wasnt that bad in The Young Victoria... Oh and I thought Daario Naharis was Benjen Stark ... Sadface.

    Yeah, I don't think she gives a damn what people think of her. She just wants to take back what's hers.

    Personally, I wanted to start this thread when last season went off the air.

    What are you most excited for? PW? Trial-by-combat? Fun with crossbows?
    I think it's awesome that the word lisp has an "s" in it.

    That question is so spoiler filled that I really cant answer it. I did also start a book thread in the sanctuary where we could probably answer it tho.

    HBO Signature is doing a Thrones marathon right now. They played a season 4 trailer between episodes.

    Full Trailer.

    "If you want justice, you've come to the wrong place." — Tyrion Lannister

    "Tell your father I'm here. And tell him the Lannisters aren't the only ones who pay their debts." — Oberyn Martell

    It's tempting to see your enemies as evil, but there's good and evil on both sides of every war ever fought." — Jorah Mormont (I <3 Ser Jorah )

    Edit:

    HBO released behind the scenes footage of Game of Thrones. It included interviews with some of the producers and actors such as Charles Dance (Tywin Lannister), Iain Glen (Jorah Mormont) Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) and Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E8eQk9IBvT8

    Winteriscoming.net has a 15 min. video up with basically nothing but season 4 footage. Shit is quite spectacular. I'll never know how I can be so excited for something when I know what happens.

    I don't think I can watch the show any longer now that I've seen how annoying the actress who plays Brienne is.

    My favorite bit was Maisie the girl who plays Aria saying that Joffrey sits on the Iron Throne like Squiffy.

    That wedding looks hot. I love Sam, i forgot I love Sam. There wasnt enough Ser Jorah.

    Also the image of Podrick Payne playing backgammon with Dame Diana Rigg/Olenna Redwine to kill the down time.

    oh yeah and Look how big the Dragons got.

    Sooo.....yeah. According to HBO, I'm not the only person that watched the premiere. Especially since my viewing method wouldn't even have been factored into their ratings scale. Where my geeks at?

    Nothing really to talk about other then then end scene. The Hound looked bas ass and Arya savored her kill.

    who in their right fucking mind quits game of thrones to go make a movie? From what I've heard, that's why the fabio dude quit and was replaced by the new guy.

    Pretty sure he's referring to Daario. I've heard a couple different reasons why he was replaced.

    One thing to keep in mind Sasha is that many of these actors haven't read the books, and only know the story up until the most recent script they've received. That, coupled with the fact that a role on GoT is probably seen as one of the most unstable jobs in television right now (with people getting killed off all the time) means that it isn't necessarily a bad idea to take the guaranteed movie contract over a job on an HBO show.

    He's starring in the Transporter prequels as a younger Statham. I'm sure actors who come on to this show have an idea of how long their characters will be around, whether they have read the books or their agents. He probably just got offered more money and took it like most would.

    It's funny they replaced him with an actor who looks nothing like him at all.

    EDIT: HBO renewed the show for two more seasons.

    I hate the dude they have playing him now. Never liked him on Treme. HBO recycling the same fucking actors is starting to get annoying as fuck too.

    Ahhh I barely remembered the character and I just recently breezed thru the first three seasons. I'm not that into Dany's storyline besides her gorgeous dragons.

    Yeah, even Dany's most badass moments, like the sacking of Astapor, are really nothing but her dragons doing what dragons do.

    Being accepted in our society is one thing, but Oberyn is the first guy I've ever seen to make being bisexual cool. No homo, I'm just saying.

    I hope they kill Daario off. I hate him, The character, not the actor.

    I thought the telling of the deaths of Elia Martell and the children was a VERY good piece of writing, very succinct but still quite powerful.

    Good to have the show back.

    Nice and slow with a killer ending. Me and my fucking dork friends did a fantasy league based on GoT. Arya really raked in the points this week.

    Shea and Ygritte are hotter. If Dany really had the white hair then maybe but not with her natural hair color.

    Shea did porn tho so I'm content lol.

    Yes, he did. And did it for a reason (though I can't believe it's this early in the season)

    What could possibly go wrong tonight?

    Also, just wondering which frequent posters in this thread have NOT read the books. Not gonna start breaking out spoilers or anything. Just curious.

    Would love to know how many episodes this makes that have ended with a rendition of "Rains of Castamere". I think the one after "Blackwater" in season 2 is still my favorite.
