Bran in Game of Thrones S5

Book readers have a good idea what might happen in the fifth season of Game of Thrones, but those who’ve waited to read until (a) the books are all out or (b) to give the show priority are happily in the dark. And even book readers don’t know it all, as the show has gone deep enough into the texts that things are being moved around, and even invented for the show.

Word came out last week that Kristian Nairn will be taking the year off, as the screen story of his character Hodor has caught up to what author George R.R. Martin has published. We assumed that could mean that Isaac Hempstead-Wright and his character Bran would also be MIA until season 6, but new comments from the actor suggest that’s not the case. Read More »

Game of Thrones Comic-Con panel

Over 6,000 Game of Thrones fans were in attendance at the show’s Comic-Con panel on Friday, held in the notorious Hall H. But that still leaves millions of Game of Thrones fans who weren’t, whether because they couldn’t hack the Hall H line or because they weren’t in San Diego at all. Fortunately, they don’t have to be left out of the fun.

A video recording of the entire Game of Thrones Comic-Con panel has just hit the web, featuring George R.R. Martin and several of the stars. Now all you need to get the full the Game of Thrones Comic-Con experience is to stand outside on the sidewalk for six hours before you watch it. Watch the panel — or just read our rundown of the highlights — after the jump.

Game of Thrones gag reel

The Lannisters are tough, poker-faced bastards, but the actors who play members of one of the elite families of Westeros can’t always keep a straight face on set. Luckily the cameras are rolling even when some of these folk are in their more vulnerable moments, and so we’ve got an entertaining Game of Thrones gag reel from season four. (Worry not; it’s not just the Lannister family caught in weird moments here. If you’re a Lion-hater there are still plenty of highlights here to enjoy.)

There are no big spoilers here, though I’m not sure why you’d be watching this sort of reel if you’re not caught up on the show in the first place. Check out the video below. Read More »

Game of Thrones Season 5 cast

Any show that kills as many characters each season as Game of Thrones does needs a steady supply of fresh blood just to keep from running out of characters altogether. At the Game of Thrones Comic-Con panel Friday, HBO announced nine new cast members for next season, including Jonathan Pryce and Keisha Castle-Hughes.

Hit the jump to get the rundown, and watch a video of the actors introducing themselves.

It’s been a pretty great season of Game of Thrones, with plenty of new characters (and plenty of killing off of old/new characters) to keep us busy on “A Cast of Kings.” As each season wraps up with several consequential episodes, it’s often easy to forget how much insane stuff happened during the earlier episodes.

Thus, I decided to revisit Season 4 and run down some of the moments that made a big impact on me. Find my Top 10 moments of Game of Thrones: Season 4 after the jump. Note: I ended up using the words “Most badass ____ imaginable” quite a bit. Let’s face it; there were some pretty amazing moments this season!

Feel free to list your own favorite moments in the comments. SPOILERS for the show are fine, but NO SPOILERS from future book developments (violators will have comments deleted and accounts banned).
