poster-dinklageAs if you needed any more reason to watch episodes 26-28 of HBO’s Game of Thrones.

More exited? Less excited? Did you notice that episode 27 is written by George RR Martin himself? I wonder what that one could be about…

Ooh, Ep 28’s description is a little spoiler-y! :D I’m very excited to see Brienne and Jaime get to Harrenhal. Oh and to get to see more of Roose Bolton, too!


I shall be looking out for it Read all the books up to a Feast for Crows – watch the Episodes on TV and collect the DVDs – I like his work I have commented somewhere else how it is so Cringeworthy of the Americans to call Martin “the American Tolkien” – does anyone else see as I do – their work is completely different and totally original – I can be wrong but I see originality in both – completely non derivative Writers

Cian Gaffney

I also disagree with that analogy, it automatically sets an unnecessary precedent. They are both excellent and unique in their own right, with absolutely no need for comparison.


Why THANKS !! very happy to see that – in “The Rivals” I once played Mrs. Malaprop at School and used an Irene Handl voice – before I knew she had ever done that part – I th8ink of her often when I am “criticizing” – she is a GIFT

Eleonora Iafano

I wonder if that’s the episode where George RR will make his cameo appearance?! Hmm…

Cian Gaffney

As I originally thought, there is no cameo this season, he discussed it in a recent interview. He said that for his proposed cameo in season 4 (which at the time hadn’t yet been ordered), he would like to be sitting down, as in his scrapped season 1 pilot cameo he was standing up in the heat for hours.
