Winter is coming! Again! Here’s the trailer for season three of “Game of Thrones.” And actually? This trailer is less than impressive. There’s only a tiny glimpse of the Dink, and the voiceover? Meh. But I’m sure season three will give us all the adventure, intrique and weird incest-y bro/sis couples we could ever ask for.
“Game of Thrones” has been on hiatus for far too long. We need a little hit of Peter Dinklage to get us through until the series returns on March 31. Here he is, walking his beautiful pup (named Kevin!) in New York City. Let’s hope Cersei doesn’t catch him off his watch. [Photo: Pacific Coast News]
I’m forever going through “Game of Thrones” withdrawal, so anytime news of the show pops up in my feed I am on it. Like today there was an interview with David J. Peterson, who is a linguist and the guy who created all of the amazing imaginary “Game of Thrones” languages.
This guy could teach you to speak Dothraki like a pro. Keep reading »
You might think you have the greatest pet in the world, but that’s probably because you don’t watch much TV. Instead of a cat that secretly hates you, fictional pets can be dragons or loyal household animals who stick by your side as you step out into the great unknown, rather than eating the contents of your bathroom trashcan the second you’re out the door. We’ve compiled a list of the 10 coolest pets in fiction. Just don’t tell your real pet — they might get jealous that they’re not as awesome as these animal pals, and, if you own a cat, try to kill you in your sleep.
1. Grey Wind, “Game Of Thrones.” Robb of House Stark, the newly crowned King of the North, is feared not only for his prowess in battle and military strategy, but because of his awesome pet: a viciously loyal direwolf. Grey Wind has no qualms about chomping off a finger or three or even scaring the bejeezus out of the Kingslayer, Jamie Lannister. Where do we sign up to get one of these wolves? Read more…
You know when that thing happened to Ned Stark in Season 1 of HBO’s ”Game of Thrones” and everyone who hadn’t read the book (and some who had) completely freaked out? There’s more stuff like that to come and A Song of Ice and Fire author George R.R. Martin is kind of scared about how you’ll react. So scared, in fact, he’s considering leaving the country to hide out for a while. (No spoilers for upcoming plot lines!) Read more…
I’m obsessed with “Game of Thrones,” but it’s really hard to keep track of the characters because there are just so many. This cheat sheet should come in handy for those of you who don’t have John DeVore, former “Mind Of Man” and GoT diehard, on speed dial. I will never get Douche King and Captain Beard confused again.

OMG, hold me! Love has blossomed beyond the Wall! “Games of Thrones” stars Kit Harrington (Jon Snow) and Rose Leslie (Ygritte) are apparently making sweet, sweet love in real life! TMZ obtained photos (see another here) of the two apparently on a romantic date, where they were seen holding hands. Leslie, who also plays
Rose Gwen on “Downton Abbey,” joined the cast of “GoT” last season, as the red-haired Wildling who always has potty-mouthed things to say to her bastard captive. This just makes me more excited for next season. I am shipping them soooo hard. What should their couple name be? Snowgritte? Rosington? Kitrose? Snowling? Gah! Nerd boner. [TMZ]
Why is Fay Helfer‘s art so appropriate for Daenerys? Well, it has to do with how she produced those dark flowing lines: with fire. She uses a heated tip to burn her lines into wood, just like those hobby kits that your parents would never buy you when you were a kid because they were covered with warnings. Fortunately, you will not need parental supervision to view Helfer’s art right here. And don’t miss a special tabletop gaming surprise at the end. Read more…
We’re currently going through “Game of Thrones” withdrawal, so we were extra excited to see the new “GoT” season three cast announced. The cute kid from “Love, Actually” will be on the next season, as will mod-tastic actress Diana Rigg.
New major characters include Lady Olenna Tyrell, aka “The Queen of Thorns.” She’s the grandmother of Margaery and Loras Tyrell. There’s also Bryndon “The Blackfish” Tully, a famous knight and the uncle of Catelyn Stark, and Thoros of Myr, a member of the outlaw band known as the Brotherhood Without Banners.
There are too many to name, so watch the video to check out all the new characters and the actors who will be playing them!
Can you tell we’re absolutely 100 percent “Game of Thrones” obsessed here? And apparently we’re not the only ones. Why not donate? For just $5, Khaleesi will promise not to smote you when she reclaims the Iron Throne. Remember, the project will only be funded if Daenerys reaches her goal before winter (which is coming). Check out the full faux Kickstarter after the jump. [Avery Edison]
