'The Simpsons' Goes 'Game Of Thrones' (Video)

'The Simpsons' is awesome again, if only for a moment. With the second season premiere of Game of Thrones just four weeks away, our withdrawal is baying inside of us. We want it now and The Simpsons isn't doing anything to quell that hunger. Posted here is the entire intro to last night's episode that sends up the animation style used in Game of Thrones' opening credits. However, instead we travel to the "kingdoms" of Springfield. If only the entire episode parodied Game of Thrones. It would be The Simpsons first talked about show in eight years. Always good to see the monorail getting some use.

Conan O'Brien Performs 'The Simpsons' Monorail Song Live At Hollywood Bowl

Why? Because life is nice sometimes. Adding more support to the argument that The Simpsons is enjoying a late-life resurgence, the series just completed a three-day run at The Hollywood Bowl, showcasing all its best musical numbers with an all-star cast of Simpsons voice talent and creators. And what would that showcase be without "The Monorail Song?" Not much. And what would "The Monorail Song" be without writer Conan O'Brien? Not much, either. The song was originally performed by Phil Hartman, who was murdered 16 years ago, so Conan took it upon himself to perform the song that he wrote. There's also some fun banter about how the song has been the bane of Conan's public existence. I could go into further detail, but just watch the awesome video.


'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.


HBO Previewing 'Game of Thrones', Plus A Trailer

This is the coolest thing to happen since the mighty Gronyok was slain by Tyrus the Great. The upcoming HBO series "Game of Thrones" is getting a fair amount of buzz. Mostly because any new show on HBO will get a fair amount of buzz, but still. Anyway, in anticipation of the new show, HBO is airing a one-time-only preview of the first 15 minutes of the first episode on Sunday, April 3rd at 9 PM. If you're one of those rubes who doesn't have HBO, you'll be able to watch it online and on-demand the day after that. If you still don't think you can wait that long for a taste of "Game of Thrones," you can watch this new trailer, which is full of swords and horses and talking like Thor. (via /Film and Deadline)


HBO Gets Medieval With 'Game Of Thrones' Trailer

"Then it's agreed. We're going to do a show based on "Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament." The first non-teaser trailer for "Game of Thrones" is up, and it looks exactly like HBO had a development meeting and the executives walked away saying, "Then it's agreed. We're going to do a show based on "Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament." The trailer focuses far more on the setting and period of the show than it does on the intricacies of the plot, which isn't much of a criticism, seeing as how this is the first real look at a show that is still seven weeks away from premiering, but it's doubtful that casual HBO viewers will be left salivating after this look. A dude gets beheaded, guys joust, a midget runs, and a few people have unnaturally blonde hair. Those are the big takeaways from the attached video. HBO may assume (perhaps rightfully) that people will ascertain the plot after watching the first episode, which many will simply because, hey, it's a new HBO series. (Warming Glow)


'Game Of Thrones' Spinoff 'One And A Half Men'

If you thought 'Two and a Half Men' was funny...what the hell is wrong with you? Game of Thrones is a good show, but I'm comfortable speaking for absolutely everyone when I say that it could stand to be a lot more like Two and a Half Men. Fortunately, some dude with a lot of free time and editing software agrees with me, because there now exists a fake trailer for One and a Half Men, a Game of Thrones parody following the adventures and friendship of Tyrion and Bronn as they go around killing people and...killing people. So wonder what might have been had the characters in Game of Thrones decided to lighten up for five seconds and enjoy the simpler things, like friendship, and having a dude around that kills people for your on command.
