Let's avoid commenting on which characters appear in the later books. it ruins the fear of who may or may not live for those that haven't read yet.

I just watched 'Black Book' a WW2 era movie starring Carice Van Houten - who was cast as Melisandre for season 2 of Game of Thrones. She is fantastic! I read an interview with the GoT producers who said they wanted her for the role because of what she did in Black Book. So I got it from Netflix.

If you want a glimpse of the talent involved in Game of Thrones in the future watch this movie! (if you don't mind watching with subtitles... mostly Dutch & German spoken) I can't wait to see her in Game of Thrones... Believe it or not, she's so talented she might actually be wasted on Melisandre!

Here's more info on the special features for the DVD/Blu Ray release

This includes a sample video of the special features...

...a first look at one of the Blu-Ray’s special features. It is from the Complete Guide to Westeros, a set of 24 videos that give an animated account of the history of Westeros, narrated by the cast of the show. This one is about the gods of Westeros and is narrated by Michelle Fairley (Catelyn) and Isaac Hempstead-Wright (Bran).




This is really cool! Looking forward to March.

Holy Pineapple... this looks amazing!



I officially can't wait for Season 2. I thought The Walking Dead would hold me over for a bit but it's not even close. I'll have to try hard to dig up the cash for the Season 1 blu ray I think. DVD/Blu Ray release March 6, Season 2 Premieres on HBO April 1.

I bought the BluRay set yesterday and my Bluray player failed damnit! ::FP:: ::censored2::

Anyway... Just 20 Days to the premiere of Season 2! ::panic::

Here's another new trailer... 8)



And here's some new character profile videos (Mild Spoilers both in video and my text comments)

Daenerys
Spoiler: show

I'd be lying if I said I was completely sold on Emilia Clarke as Daenerys... but I guess I can't be pleased with them all.


Jon Snow
Spoiler: show

I'm looking forward to Jon's storyline this year... especially the events from the end of A Clash of Kings


King Joffery
Spoiler: show

The Megadouche himself... I'm looking forward to the riot in the streets of Kings Landing. I imagine him almost pissing himself.


King Renly
Spoiler: show

As with Season 1 it would seem that they're a lot more in your face about Renly & Loras Tyrell's relationship. In the books it wasn't quite so obvious and I had gotten the impression that Renly was even hiding it from Margeary Tyrell. I don't have a problem with the extra attention to it really. I'm pretty excited about Renly's story this year too!

I haven't watched The Tudors yet so I haven't seen Natalie Dormer act yet, but I like her for Margeary so far - even though they aged the character. She looks to be 10 years older than the character in the books. (In fact, she's 30 IRL... As opposed to 16ish when her character is introduced. Wow)

The Season 2 premiere was satisfying... A few minor book related disappointments but that's to be expected. I especially loved the Melisandre scenes... they cast her very well. Looking forward to some Renly/Brienne scenes next week since we didn't get any tonight. The CG uh... creatures... looked pretty good.
