Game of Thrones Star Warns Fans to 'Be Prepared for the Worst' in Season 5 Premiere

Originally posted 03/20/2015 09:25AM

Take the themes of love, power and revenge – stir in two gruesome murders, a prophecy of death and enough sexual innuendo to burn down the whole of Westeros – and there you have the first episode of Game of Thrones season 5 (spoiler alert).

Everyone's favorite naughty dwarf, Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage), is safe after killing his dad and his lover and getting smuggled out of Westeros by Varys (Conleth Hill). Varys tries to persuade Tyrion to follow a new leader: "Westeros needs to be saved from itself," Varys says. He seems to favor the white-haired beauty Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) as a contender for the throne.

Game of Thrones Season 5 Premiere: 'There's Some Really Dark Stuff Coming'

Send a raven. Game of Thrones is back.

And there couldn't possibly have been a more fitting location for Wednesday night's season 5 world premiere than the Tower of London.

Kit Harington, Natalie Dormer and Charles Dance were among the stars from the acclaimed HBO fantasy drama who brought Westeros to London, where the walls of the "Bloody Tower" were emblazoned with illuminated projections of dragons and flames that flickered along the red carpet.

Even the much-coveted Iron Throne found its way to to the historic fortress, which just happens to be circled by ravens – though not the three-eyed kind.

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

Originally posted 02/17/2015 01:40PM

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

Much of the Internet spent Wednesday and Thursday mourning the news that Harry Shearer, who voices roughly a third of Springfield's citizens, was leaving the cast of The Simpsons.

Shearer's departure raises any number of questions about what's going to happen to the characters he voiced, and indeed, the future of the show in general. And that's a shame, because we're hard-pressed to think of another show with as recognizable and familiar a style as The Simpsons. 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!

Originally posted 08/17/2014 04:05PM

Game of Thrones fans are a prolific and determined bunch. How prolific and determined? Well, at the recent Edinburgh International Literary Festival, the author of the epic fantasy saga, George R.R. 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.
