“Game Of Thrones” Gets The “Arrested Developement” Treatment

When you think about it, Lucille Bluth and Catelyn Stark aren’t that much different. They’re both domineering mothers who’ve gotten their families in a lot of trouble, right? So it makes sense that some TV superfan would put together the Starks and the Bluths in one hilarious “Game of Thrones”/”Arrested Development mashup. I mean, the…

It’s Theon Greyjoy’s Dick In A Box!

Yesterday, while Julie and I were discussing the season finale of “Game of Thrones,” both of us knelt down and said a prayer that some genius — i.e. someone who’s handy with Final Cut Pro — would do a supercut of “Saturday Night Live”‘s “Dick In A Box” just for Theon Greyjoy. (Theon’s wang, of…

“Game Of Thrones” + Cosplay + Piano = Perfect Weirdness

For those of you that don’t know (as I did not just a mere 10 minutes ago), “cosplay” is when people dress up like characters from fictional stories, usually in the anime, sci-fi, or fantasy genre. It is both as geeky and as awesome as it sounds, especially when it is matched up with “Game…

Ygritte Confronts Worst BF Ever, Jon Snow, On “Game Of Thrones” Finale

Compared to last week’s bloodbath of an episode, the season finale of “Game of Thrones” was rather subdued. Yes, it certainly set things up for next season, but the ep was minimal on climactic moments, save for Khaleesi gathering even more loyal troops for her army, Theon’s sister vowing to avenge her brother’s lost penis,…

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.

Arya Stark Posts A Reaction Video To The “Game Of Thrones” Red Wedding

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…

“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.

The Soapbox: Where Are The Pubes On “Game Of Thrones”?

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,…

George R. R. Martin Is Writing A “Game Of Thrones” Coffee Table Book Now

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.

Of Course Jon Snow Would Be A Grunge Dude

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…

A “Game of Thrones” actress has just revealed one of her fellow cast members is tired of getting naked on the hit HBO series.
