I wonder why he left? Seems like an odd move unless he had a specific reason.

 

I also hate that anything about this show would have to be held back on because of budgetary concerns. Especially because it made Tyrion come off like a total ponce last season. sad.gif

 

Finally.... Gregor's an evil beast.

Figured this thread needed some reviving since the teaser trailer for season 2 was shown during last weeks episodes of Boardwalk Empire.

 

April 2012 people.

Over half-way through book two at the moment, should easily have it read by then. That and my family is buying me the rest of the books for Christmas so I need to get reading faster.

 

Had to love the hate Joffrey got after season one. People aint seen nothing yet...

I wonder what will happen to this show if GRRM dies before finishing the book (which is going to happen, dude takes his f*ckin time writing, and he's old and fat).

 

Will they just wing it for 2 seasons?

Yeah, that's the plan. I don't really see how hard it could be for HBO to take over on its own. The show's formula is basically "kill everyone".

Er, if HBO did that, wouldn't it be a bit like New Line Cinema going "Not quite happy that we made enough money from old Tolkien's work. Quick, someone pen a follow up!"

 

If it aint originally from Martin's mind and pen, I don't want to see it on screen.

We get the shows a week behind the States - so we can all make sense of the plotlines at roughly the same time.

Last time Sky had it a day after the States. They seem to be really supportive of it in terms of marketing etc so I would imagine they would have a similar deal this time....

Or you know, "find" a copy of the HBO version so you don't have to watch the insufferable Sky Atlantic adverts ... then watch it again on Sky Atlantic anyway. ph34r.gif

Shameful but necessary double post.

 

MASSIVE GAME OF THRONES SPOILERS ALERT - NO NOT READ UNLESS YOU'VE READ THE BOOKS. If there was a book thread I'd post it there so this is only aimed at people who've read the books.

 

Holy f*ckballs, I've just read the infamous "RW" scene that I've heard so much about in Storm of Swords. I have chills, I'm genuinely f*cking gutted. GRR Martin is a f*cking monster! Sod season 2, season 3/4 needs to hurry the f*ck up just so we can see this acted out. I had to put down the book to come and voice my "OMFG!" somewhere before moving back on to Arya's next chapter. The strange thing is I kind of saw it coming. What with what happened at the end of Clash of Kings and Lord Bolton's general demeanour. I knew something was going to happen to one character because of something someone wrote online, but I didn't know what. Lord Walder Frey had me completely f*cking sold. I should have known better. Oh man I was so looking forward to seeing some happiness too! Arya was so close... /cry

 

Edit: Determined to get my girlfriend to like Game of Thrones as much as I do (doubt she'll read the books). Started watching it with her the other day. I don't think I can see those characters any more without crying! /beingmelodramaticbutthepointstands

God sh*t man, I can't believe I nearly forgot this show is going to be back on telly soon.

 

I'm tempted to check spoilers, but I won't. But so tempting....

Don't do it. Go read the books now. Or wait 3 years until they show it on TV.

 

I feel kind of bad for putting the temptation of spoilers up there but I needed to write out my angst lol.

The trailer has at least answered one question I was pondering going into season 2. In one of the most shocking and deplorable scenes in A Clash of Kings, we see Joffrey humiliate her in front of the entire court by having her stripped. I was wondering how they were going to show the true nasty, belittling effects of that with a 15 year old actress but I suppose only tearing her dress a little is equally deplorable. Oh, and pointing a crossbow at her head. Yeah, that'll do it.

 

Waiting for the actors who portray Brienne of Tarth and Roose Bolton to come along and ruin the pictures I've conjured up in my head tounge2.gif I defo want to see the show's portrayal of the former in a trailer soon, though. Having seen the mountainous actress they've hired, I'm only hoping they make her stocky too.

That's about right. She looks f*cking massive, like a man. Mission accomplished in that regard.

Yeah. I mean, that is one of the biggest turning points in the books. Yet, there are tons of turning points in the books.

 

Can't wait for the first episode.

 

And Brienne does look large, I wonder how her face looks.

How can we be sure it's her though? I thought (minor spoilers?)she was part of Renly's rainbow guard, so shouldn't she have a rainbow cloak?.

 

Also, if anyone is looking for a laugh, this video made me chuckle a few times (it only has minor spoilers as well; no major ones).

They seem to have turned down the colour palette somewhat on the show. It's more gritty and realistic. We haven't seen Stark's wearing white outfits like they do in the book, they're all wrapped up in furs and darks. Wouldn't be surprised if they just cut out the whole "rainbow guard" idea.

 

The scene from the picture seems to be from when Renly meets up with Stannis outside Storm's End. If you remember, Renly had Brienne and Catelyn in his entourage (Catelyn was in the above picture but I cropped her out) and Stannis came up with Melisandre. I'm pretty sure it's that scene and that it is Brienne there.

 

Edit: Haha, good video. Thing with the Jorah clips is they are all probably true...

 

Edit 2: Had a MIND BLOWN moment the other day. About how Theon Greyjoy is portrayed by Alfie Allen. Lily Allen's brother. The one from the song.

 

 

 

dafuq...
