God I love George R. R. Martin, creator of the “Game Of Thrones” book series A Song of Ice and Fire. The bearded longshoreman-esque super nerd appeared on “Conan” last night to discuss the most recent episode of “Game of Thrones,” in which three major characters were slaughtered in a scene best described as totally fucking gruesome. Martin can’t help but giggle as he watches the various fan reactions posted on YouTube. Such an adorable sadist he is!
After the jump, Martin talks about why he likes to kill off beloved characters, though he admits it’s gotten harder since he’s gotten to know the actors who play them on the TV show. Keep reading »
Are you sick of us talking about “Game of Thrones” yet? Too bad! Because the Red Wedding was totally cray and we are gonna be talking about that shit for days, not counting the time spent crying about it to our therapist. Our favorite fellow straight iron enthusiast Jonathan is right there with us in the obsession. The guy behind the incredible “Gay of Thrones“ recaps is back with another one, this time in mourning shawl. [Funny Or Die]
Maisie Williams plays kickass Arya Stark on “Game of Thrones,” but she also happens to have a little addiction to six-second video-making program Vine, too. In her latest, she reacts to the most recent episode of “GoT” — you know, the one where, like, SPOILER ALERT, a whole bunch of important characters died. Kind of a rough time, eh? [Vine]
“Game of Thrones” last night, holy crap, right? That shit was cray. Amelia already talked about some of the episode’s main events, but on another note, I don’t think it’s any surprise that Jon Snow is the worst boyfriend. Yes, good ol’ Ladyface crapped out pretty bad on last night’s episode when he (SPOILER ALERT!) took off without Ygritte. Total dick move. I haven’t read the books yet (What? They’re so dense!), but based on the happenings so far on the TV show, Jon Snow makes a rather crappy mate. After the jump, all the ways Jon Snow––as Ygritte might say––knows nothing about being a good boyfriend (in GIFS!). Keep reading »
Well, that happened. Thanks to last night’s beyond tragic episode of “Game of Thrones,” I know what I’ll be discussing in therapy for the next month or so! Thanks, George R. R. Martin! You’re the best! Click onward for major spoilers — have your tissues at the ready! Keep reading »
With TV getting raunchier and more graphic every year, are you satisfied with the sex on your screen? The New York Times says that the sex on TV isn’t sexy anymore. We disagree. The Joylessness of Sex on TV discusses shows like “Homeland,” “The Americans,” and “House of Cards,” where sex is used as a ploy for personal gain instead of pleasure. It’s a valid point, but it doesn’t cover that broad of a spectrum. There are plenty of other shows out there doing sex in innovative and, well, sexy ways. Look at “Girls,” where the sex is pure awkwardness, and “Arrested Development,” where the sex is openly comical.
But what are we doing naming shows where the sex isn’t sexy? That’s just silly. You came here to find the best sex on television. These are the shows that are doing sex right. A collection of the shows with the hottest, steamiest, most salacious scenes that won’t inspire any critical analyses in newspapers. Keep reading »
If you watch HBO’s tit-laden nigh-incoherent castle-intrigue juggernaut “Game of Thrones “(or as I like to call it, “The Peter Dinklage Show”) you’ll remember that a couple weeks ago there was an episode with a scene involving two prostitutes.
HAHA, JUST KIDDING, THAT’S EVERY EPISODE. That doesn’t help distinguish them at all. Anyway, just trust me, there were two prostitutes and they get naked — because really that is what 80 percent of the women in this series are there for — and I couldn’t help but notice that their, uh, ladygardens were shockingly well maintained. Like meticulously trimmed topiaries. So much so that it distracted me right out of the scene. Keep reading »
The book in question, according to George R.R. Martin, is “a compendium of the history and legends of the world of Westeros,” and though it’s officially called The World Of Ice and Fire, UK publisher HarperCollins has given it the nickname “The GRRM-arillion.” I like that name better. The nerd is strong with this one.
For all you Westeros backstory fiends, the book is presented as a book given to King Robert Baratheon just after the Rebellion and will contain, per Martin:
“Never-before revealed details of Aegon’s Conquest, the War With the Faith, The Dance of the Dragons, the Paramours of Aegon the Unworthy, etc.”
The book, co-written by Martin and fansite Westeros’ Elio M García, will be out next spring. Read more on The Mary Sue…
Artist Mike Wrobel wanted to update the “Game of Thrones” crew with a new look, and wondered what they might wear if the show took place in the ’90s. Jon Snow, the broody, lady-lipped bastard son of Ned Stark, would most definitely have been into moody grunge bands. His girlfriend, Ygritte, probably started a Garbage cover band or something – maybe called Wild Trash? Instead of dragons, Daenarys might have had ferrets .(What? They’re scary.) And Jamie Lannister? Well, just click after the jump to see what he and Joffrey would have sported. [Mike Wrobel] Keep reading »
A “Game of Thrones” actress has just revealed one of her fellow cast members is tired of getting naked on the hit HBO series.
If you watch “Game of Thrones,” you know it’s a common occurrance to have women walking around completely naked, and far less so, men. Previously, actress Natalia Tena had commented on this. “I think it’s really unfair, every actor, any actress has had her t-ts out. Every single actress I know,” she said. “Blokes it’s like, let’s see some ass! Do you know what I mean? Let’s make it more even.”
But Tena said she has no issues doing a nude scene if it’s called for and speaking with the Telegraph, Oona Chaplin, who plays Robb Stark’s wife Talisa on the series, agreed.
“If it’s done in a beautiful way, in a way that honours the female form, then I’m always happy to see it,” she told them. “The objectification lies in the eye of the beholder, just like beauty. I’m really comfortable getting my kit off, so, if they want to, I’m like, ‘yeah, bring it, I’m naked, no problem.’”
But not all of the women on “Game of Thrones” feel that way. Read more on The Mary Sue…
