Heinously Humdrum: “Game of Thrones” Has A Villain Problem

Heinously Humdrum: “Game of Thrones” Has A Villain Problem

For a show that revels in moral complexity, Game of Thrones’ villains are beginning to feel as if they are cut from the same cloth.  Before the release of the latest season of HBO’s hit series, Pilou Asbæk, who plays the bombastic, belligerent Euron Greyjoy, announced to the media that his piratical character was going to make the recently deceased Ramsay Bolton “look like a little kid.” At the time, I couldn’t help but sigh. I was burnt out on Ramsay’s relentless brand of snarky, supervillain shenanigans (he lost me somewhere between his shirtless stand against Yara and his handy use of twenty good men to bring down...

Game of Thrones News Round-Up: All Quiet on the Westeros Front

Game of Thrones ruled supreme this Halloween– it seemed like everyone wanted to be Jon, Daenerys, or a White Walker (my favorite was someone’s imaginative “Tacky White Walker Tourist”)– and now that November has settled in, the chilly weather has prompted everyone to say “Winter is Coming,” perhaps a little too much. While HBO’s polarizing show continues to leave it’s Wun Wun sized foot-print in the daily lives of both dedicated fans and casual watchers, down in Belfast and beyond, the new, final season of Game of Thrones is being filmed with a great deal sneakiness. Security is tight...

Game of Thrones News Round-Up: Love, Death, and Hurricanes

Those who enjoy Sophie Turner’s portrayal of Sansa Stark on the show, were delighted to learn Sunday via Instagram, that the 21 year old star was engaged to the singer, Joe Jonas. The couple were an item for a little less than a year, before committing to marriage, and Turner later admitted it was a bit of a surprise. Her co-stars, especially BFF Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark, were quick to congratulate...

Game of Thrones News Round Up: Gearing up For Season 8

   It may feel like we will have to wait forever until the final, eighth season of Game of Thrones, but the cast and crew of the show are currently hard at work and back on set. Almost all of the Thrones actors have returned to the show’s filming hub of Belfast, and sets are being built back up and prepared for imminent use (although this year, HBO is going to dramatic lengths to keep peeping paparazzi away, including erecting huge walls around key areas and looking into trained eagles to take down pesky drones). According to Liam Cunningham, who plays the wholesome smuggler, Davos Seaworth, the cast participated in a script...

Game of Thrones News Roundup: Stars Engaged, Season 8 News,  and Spin-off Hints

The weather is getting cooler…winter is coming…and Season Six of Game of Thrones which aired this July seems farther and farther away. Most of us have stowed our swords and gotten out our sweaters (or Ikea-rug cloaks if you’re into that) and found something else to do on Sunday nights.  However, even though HBO hasn’t started filming Season Seven, yet, there’s lots of news to stay on top of, if you’re a Thrones fan! 1) Kit Harington and Rose Leslie are Engaged! Rumors have been going around for months now, that the two Game of Thrones stars who met on set in 2012, and warmed hearts with their...
