Talk To The Hand: The Best Of Tyrion Lannister

Imps say the darndest things. Tyrion Lannister is everyone's favorite character on HBO's Game of Thrones. We proved that a few months ago using science. Beloved for witticism and retorts, the snarkiest Lannister has proven the standout on the series. Now you can enjoy his best lines from season two. Spoilers if you aren't current with the series of course. The writers always give him the best lines but its time he gets a catchphrase. "Talk to the Hand," perhaps? Okay. Just spit-balling anyway.


'Game Of Thrones' Creators Also Left Feeling Horrible By Last Week's Episode

Spoilers. If you haven't watched the latest episode of Game Of Thrones, a) why are you on the Internet?, and b) don't watch this video unless you want one of the series' bigger moments spoiled. Those who watched 'The Rains of Castamere" went to bed with an icky, horrible feeling that, if they are me, are still carrying around. Ignoring their work, duties at home, and wondering how they'll ever experience happiness again. Turns out, we're not alone. Series creators D.B. Weiss and David Benioff feel the same way, and they're the guys who cast this sadness upon us. Here they discuss what went into the much talked about episode and the emotional difficulties of having to craft such a thing. It's refreshing to see that although they are MONSTERS, at least they are conflicted monsters. Sigh, guess I'm Team Stannis now.


There's Good And Bad On Every Side In 'Game Of Thrones' Season Four Trailer

April 6th! HBO revealed a trailer for Game of Thrones season four and it's nothing short of ohmygodIwannawatchthisshowrightnow. The trailer hints that more of your favorites will meet horrible ends when Daeneyrs informs Jorah that whether good or bad, those who oppose her have a choice. Dragon or unich, which would you like to be murdered by? We're caught up with each faction. Daeneyrs has grown stronger. Joffrey is still a dick. Jon Snow is still fighting Wildlings. Arya is still seeking revenge. Bran is still doing stuff in the forest. Stannis is still depending on dark magic. Jamie tries on a new hand. And let's assume Theon is trying on his own prosthetic. Wow. George R.R. Martin really knows how to stretch out a narrative. It also looks like this could be the season where acting terrible and entitled catches up to the Lannisters as a man from Tywin's past arrives looking for revenge. How that will unfold, I'm not sure but I've been warned by book readers that a storm of crazy is on the horizon. I can't wait to see what happens next. But not badly enough to actually read. Ewww, gross.


Cold Winds Are Rising: 'Game Of Thrones' Teaser Trailer

The bitch is back. Tonight, for a brief moment, I was saddened by the fact that season two of Boardwalk Empire was drawing to a close. But as much as I love the show, the new teaser trailer for the second season of Game of Thrones made me forget all about Nucky Thompson and his prohibition-ear cronies. After all, bootlegging gangsters don't hold a candle to knights, White Walkers, and newly hatched dragons. Upon rereading that last sentence, I finally understand why I didn't get laid until my late 20's. At any rate, the trailer features a voice over from a new character, Stannis Baratheon, rightful heir to the Iron Throne. It also features all your old favorites, as well as your least favorite, Joffrey. However, the clip featured no exposed breasts, which seems to be a drastic departure from season one. Watch for yourself.


'Game Of Thrones'. Season 5. Trailer. Here. Now.

Ok. I'm ready for the premiere now. In *sigh* two and a half months. To the delight of millions of fans throughout the world, the Game of Thrones season 5 trailer has been released, like so many beautiful doves, into the wild. It came before the IMAX presentation of its episodes, and was pretty clearly shot with a fan's camera. Still, it's worth checking out if you're a fan. I don't really feel like discussing the plot points here, but I will direct you to this Variety page where they run through every bit of imagery there is. Me? I prefer to just let it wash over me. Mostly because I can't remember the fate of about 90% of the characters, but also because the trailer is pretty cool with that David Bowie cover. WATCH IT.


'Game Of Thrones' Second Season Teaser

"You win or you die." Is this about Words With Friends? HBO had a surprise hit on their hands last year with Game of Thrones, presumably due to all the nudity and decapitations HBO is famous for providing its viewers. And they're doing the smart thing and not letting anybody see any beheadings for free, if this new teaser that just premiered is any indication. Still, you might be into it if you like the show. Enjoy, and try not to speak with a British accent for the rest of the day - unless you actually are British, of course.
