Last night’s episode of “Game of Thrones” introduced us to an important character from George R. R. Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire series, Daario Naharis. Or, as I call him, Not-So-Rapey Blond Fabio. (During the first clip presented above, I referred to him as Rapey Blond Fabio, because of the way he and his brethren were behaving, but I adapted his name over the course of the episode — all three of his scenes are above.) By the end of the episode, the lieutenant in the Second Sons mercenary company had killed his two bros, Mero and Prendahl na Ghezn, and sworn his allegiance to Daenerys Targaryen. Wise man, and so much sexier now that he’s a good guy. So who’s the actor playing the show’s latest heartthrob? Let’s get to know Ed Skrein…

Listen up, “Game of Thrones” fans — we have some weekend homework for you. Your assignment is to go back and watch all of Funny or Die’s “Gay of Thrones” recap series because for real? This is fucking “GoT” cracksauce. Each week, hairdresser Jonathan recaps all the dragons, butts, scheming and whatnot that “GoT” has to offer. He hasn’t done a recap for this past episode just yet, so we’re posting the one from episode seven instead.
We’re super sorry we slept on this so long, because this is required viewing for “GoT” fans. I mean, he refers to Daenarys as Christina Aguilera. I live for this.
To make your homework easier, we’ve embedded the other five episodes of “Gay of Thrones” (including one featuring Alfie Allen) after the jump. Keep reading »
If you, like me, are deeply obsessed with “Game of Thrones,” then perhaps Tumblr A Game of Clothes is for you. Combining two of my fave passions––fashion and “GoT,” Game of Clothes offers up runway looks that wouldn’t be out of place in Westeros. Writes the unnamed keeper of the blog fire, “After watching the first season of Game of Thrones I had to read the books, and I loved the descriptions of outfits and locations through out the series so much, that I have collected what I think the characters of A Song of Ice and Fire would wear and live.” Keep reading »
Ask and you shall receive.
Mindy Kaling loves Jimmy Fallon more than anything in the world right now.
The reason? On Thursday, the “Late Night” host granted Kaling’s wish and “asked about” her during his interview with Game of Thrones hunk Nikolaj Coster-Waldau. Kaling, who made her request on Twitter hours before the taping, also received photographic evidence from Fallon. Read more on Celebuzz…
“Game of Thrones” is one of my favorite shows on TV, not just right now, but of all time. I must be some kind of magical unicorn, because by virtue of the fact that I have a vagina — I literally just double-checked and, yep, still packing lady parts — I am supposed to hate “Game of Thrones.” This is according to Thrillist’s Renata Sellitti, who wrote an article about why women “hate” the show and offered advice for how “Game of Thrones”-loving men can entice their girlfriends into watching it with them. It is, as you might expect, the biggest pile of direwolf excrement I’ve seen on the internet this week. I am tempted to print out her article, pull down my smallclothes and make water all over it, that’s how bad it is. I’m breathing wildfire I’m so pissed. As Cersei Lannister would say, if she were a woman of the 21st century, BITCH, PLEASE.
Now, I don’t disagree that there are certainly some women out there who hate “Game of Thrones.” (I just don’t happen to know any of them so they clearly weren’t in Renata’s control group. … She polled a wide variety of women in order to determine that basically all of us hate the show, right? I’m sure she did.) But there are also some women who hate “The Bachelor,” “The Real Housewives” franchise and whatever other female-targeted TV shows likely litter Renata’s DVR queue. (I’m not hating on your boob tube choices, girl, I watch those shows too.) And there are certainly men who hate “Game of Thrones,” possibly even for some of the reasons Sellitti claims women are turned off by the show. Oh, yes, the reasons. Let’s review and refute them, shall we? Keep reading »
Last week on “Game of Thrones,” we learned the one thing Jon Snow knows — cunnilingus — and this week, Ygritte, the lucky recipient of his tongue lashing, made it clear she’s not letting him go. Prepping for this climb up the giant ice wall, Ygritte calls Jon out, saying she knows he is really still loyal to the crows and not Mance Rayder, despite the fact that he took her dare and gave up his oath of celibacy. Ygritte doesn’t seem to care who Jon is ultimately loyal to, so long as he stays loyal to her. “You’re a proper lover, Jon Snow,” she compliments him, saying the other men she’s been with haven’t treated her as well, “Or done the thing you did with your tongue.” But later: Keep reading »
Zach Galifianakis first “Saturday Night Live” hosting appearance was maybe one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen (“That’s so Raven?”), so I had high hopes for his second stint this weekend. Alas, the show was off-kilter and random, and not in the good way Zach is generally known for. But one sketch in particular made me crack up — watch as Zach plays a dragon costume-clad “Game of Thrones” fan on the show “Game of ‘Game of Thrones’,” who keeps getting the, well, hardest questions for a “GoT” fan to answer. Jaime Lannister himself makes an appearance. Swooooon!
George R. R. Martin has announced a new book about Lord Tyrion called, The Wit And Wisdom Of Lord Tyrion. According to BookSeller.com, “The hardback title will gather together ‘clever and naughty quips’ from the popular character from A Song of Ice and Fire series, played in the HBO series by actor Peter Dinklage.” I don’t know if we need an entire compilation of Lord Tyrion’s quotes when we all have Google and are absolutely obsessed with the show but, hey, why not? In case you were wondering what kind of “wit and wisdom” you might find in the new book, we’ve rounded up the 10 best Lord Tyrion quotes to get you in the mood for some “half-man sass.” Read more on College Candy…
Whoa, TV passions collide! While hanging out at Calgary Comic-Con, my BFF, “The Walking Dead”‘s Norman Reedus (When are we getting those tacos, boo? Call me!) made a fan pic with “Game Of Thrones”‘ Cersei and Tyrion Lannister even more nerdtastic by jumping in with a middle finger photobomb. Dream life status all up in this pic. [Uproxx]
I wasn’t sure if “Game Of Thrones” could get better than Khaleesi raising fire-breathing dragon hell, but last night’s episode might have been even better than the week prior. First of all, SO MANY BARE ASSES. And taut ones at that! Forget getting a bikini body, I want a winter is coming body, mmkay? Anyway, let’s review some of the better moments from last night’s episode. Spoilers (and some NSFW GIFs) after the jump! Keep reading »
