Interesting...

I'm curious to see how that plays out.

And also...

Spoiler


I am sure if they mean to include it it will be very obvious on the show, like any things that are alluded to in the book (renly and loras cough cough) they need to spell out for TV audiences.

Bought my season 1 set today :) and they stuffed up the prices which means i got the deluxe blu ray with the photobook for the price the dvd version should have been

Agreed :golfclap:

Good News for Game ofThrones:

“We warmly welcome the announcement from the Chancellor that he intends to introduce tax incentives for high-end television production, animation and video games. This is a bold move that will have a considerable positive impact on the economy when introduced in April 2013. Northern Ireland is extremely well placed to benefit from these new incentives and Northern Ireland Screen will double its efforts in its promotion of the screen industry here.

As part of the TV Coalition, which worked closely with government and representatives from the film and television industry in both the UK and USA, Northern Ireland Screen sees the new incentive as critical for the continuing development of the screen industry in Northern Ireland.

Sitting alongside the existing feature film production tax break, the announcement could help Northern Ireland Screen secure more high-budget television drama, bringing additional economic dividend and job creation.

Despite having had no previous TV tax break, we have managed to secure a pilot and two series of Europe’s largest television drama – Game of Thrones. This in itself has been no mean feat. But this very welcome news, which is evidence of tremendous support for the creative industries, adds even more value to Northern Ireland’s proposition as a world-class production location. “

The TV Coalition which has been campaigning for a high budget TV tax incentive includes production companies Left Bank, Mammoth, Kudos, Carnival, Ecosse, and Red Arrow; trade bodies PACT, UK Screen, The Production Guild and Directors UK; trade union Bectu; inward investors HBO, Starz, Showtime, ABC/Disney, RHI Entertainment; as well as national bodies Creative England, Creative Scotland and Northern Ireland Screen, BBC Worldwide and Andy Weltman from The British Film Commission. The Coalition is advised by RSM Tenon and Wiggin LLP.

Everyone can now take solace in the fact that somewhere on the Internet, a Joffrey is being repeatedly slapped by Tyrion. :party:

I definitely need to enter that contest!

And I didn't even realize that my last post here was my 100th. If this thread didn't exist, my count would be significantly lower. :rofl:

I probably should have waaay more. I've been lurking on GGD for sooo long, even the old GGD. And I would always read threads and comment on them in my head, but I didn't actually start commenting on stuff until recently. I just wanted to reach 50 or whatever to see the LOLGAGA's and then I got carried away with commenting. :lmfao:

So watching the season 1 commentary, they mentioned that Ros becomes almost a main character in the second season. Logic would say that she replaces a certain character who aids Tyrion, or do you guys think she will just be in more random scenes like Littlefinger and Pycells last season?

I'm thinking she'll just be in more scenes with Little Finger and Pycelle. Also in one of the trailers, I swear I saw Shae attacking/ mocking Ros but I forgot which one it was. I guess we'll see the Council's motivations/ secrets through Ros' eyes like how we discovered that Pycelle fakes his back pain in Ep. 10.


Joffrey and other people...

Game of Thrones on Facebook just posted this.

[left]I have no idea who it is, but the comments sayYgritte, so I guess it's Ygritte.

57% done with book 1.. Hopefully finishing it this weekend and then on to book 2 as soon as I finish it. :party:[/left]

WUT.
Better not be Ygritte. She's supposed to have crazy wild, red hair. So unless Westoros imports hair dye and straighteners... :roll:

But I just researched it and it is.

I expected her more ragged, but it's pretty much along th lines of what I thought (kind of an uglier Sansa)

'Ragged' is a good word. Or 'wild.'

This, tbh. Less Disneyish, obviously. :P I could have sworn she was supposed to be ugly. I could have just imagined that just because I don't like her though. :rofl:

Hmm... Ygrette looks too.... pretty? Eh... I don't really care tbh.


EW RATE GAME OF THRONES SEASON 2: A-


There are no spoilers btw

[left][color=#222222]Throwing more grime and grim realism on screen than 99 percent of TV shows rooted in true history, the second season of the fantasy epic Game of Thrones once again plunges us into a universe of dynasties thwarted and vengeance unlimited. As they would not say onGame of Thrones: Yee-haw![/color][/left]

[left][color=#222222]As you'd imagine, the reverberations are still being felt from last season's killing of Lord of Winterfell Ned Stark at the order of the weaselly boy king Joffrey (Jack Gleeson). The kid's overweening arrogance and the paranoid plotting of his mother, the Queen Regent Cersei (Lena Headey), threaten to weaken their hold over King's Landing, the capital of the Seven Kingdoms.[/color][/left]

[left][color=#222222]To an already large cast GoT now adds more, more, more, without suffering from bloat. Among the prominent new faces: Stephen Dillane as Stannis Baratheon, Cersei's brother-in-law and yet another contender for the Iron Throne. And he in turn teams up with Carice van Houten's Melisandre, a dynamic ''red priestess,'' to aid him in his ruthless ambition.[/color][/left]

[left][color=#222222]Of course, jockeying for power is only one aspect of GoT's entertainment factor. The series abounds with juicy questions. How will Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) use her freshly hatched trio of dragons as she pursues her own path to dominance? How many wenches and how many warriors will Peter Dinklage's Tyrion Lannister continue to skewer verbally, while seeming to consume more wine than any man possibly could without keeling over? Will Kit Harington's Jon Snow and his filthy fellow Night's Watchmen ever come in out of the cold for a nice hot bath somewhere?[/color][/left]

[left][color=#222222]I've tried a little experiment: I had read the first volume of George R.R. Martin's saga A Song of Ice and Fire (the source material for this series) before I watched the first season of GoT so I would be familiar with the vast array of characters and plots that would develop. But I intentionally did not read the epic's second volume, A Clash of Kings, before watching the start of GoT season 2, because I wanted to see if I'd have trouble following the new intricacies.[/color][/left]

[left][color=#222222]And I'm here to report that my lack of homework in no way prevented me from becoming enthralled with this series all over again. That's a testament to what adapters David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have accomplished in whittling down and reshaping Martin's novels for weekly TV. It's difficult enough to hook a viewer like me, who resists sprawling, noncontemporary narratives; it's another level of pop culture wizardry to make such storytelling seem so vivid, so vital, and just plain fun.
