George R.R. Martin Would Like to Remind Game of Thrones Fans the Show Was Once a Book Series

Originally posted 02/24/2015 01:10PM

[YOUTUBE "snm6qnezv0Q"] Did you know that HBO's Game of Thrones is based on a literary saga?

Kidding, kidding. But seriously, in his GoT DVD audio commentaries, author George R.R. Martin has a tendency to point out how a certain plot point went down "in the books."

One enterprising fan put together a supercut of every time Martin refers to "the books" during his commentaries. From season 1 to season 4, no "book" was left unturned.

Conquer Westeros with This Game of Thrones Monopoly Board

Because completing one game of Monopoly will take roughly as long as reading one of the Game of Thrones books, this seems like a logical pairing.

The game's locations have been updated with examples from the monolithic fantasy franchise, such as King's Landing, Winterfell and Castle Black. Meanwhile, players can choose from a white walker, direwolf, three-eyed raven, dragon egg, crown and, of course, the Iron Throne to use as pieces. Green houses have become villages and red hotels are now keeps.

7 of Your Favorite TV Shows, Simpson-ized

Originally posted 09/26/2014 07:00PM

The Simpsons enters its 26th season Sept. 28. Pause and try to absorb that information.


Okay. Now think about how recognizable and familiar the style of The Simpsons actually is: Can you think of another animated series from the past quarter-decade of American animation that's quite as iconic? Family Guy comes close, but it's still far off.

Which is what's so cool about this collection of art from DeviantArt user ADN-Z. It takes the familiar Simpsons aesthetic and applies it to other popular TV shows, like Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones. (ADN-Z runs the Draw The Simpsons Tumblr, so he's something of an expert.)

Walter, John Snow, and all the rest: Welcome to Springfield!

Martin, says he's stopped reading online message boards for the show because, to his chagrin, he discovered a few fans have already accurately predicted how the series will end.

Let's just hope Her Majesty doesn't start taking ruling lessons from Westeros.

While Queen Elizabeth II didn't ascend to the Iron Throne when she visited the Game of Thrones set in Belfast, Ireland, that doesn't mean Her Majesty is immune to the charms of the HBO hit: Apparently her Guard can bust out a mean rendition of the show's catchy theme.

The master of literary misery, the killer of your favorite characters, George R.R. Martin has offered up his services as a hired hit man.

As part of a campaign to raise money for Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary and The Food Depot of Santa Fe, the Game of Thrones author has come up with an interesting incentive. The first two donors to give $20,000 were guaranteed to have a character, who meets a grisly death, named after them in an upcoming Song of Fire and Ice novel.
