'Game of Thrones' Season 1 Finale Recap

['Game of Thrones' - 'Fire and Blood']

Given that the 'Game of Thrones' season finale began by showing us several characters reacting to last week's major death, I thought it would be appropriate to begin this week's discussion with one reader's reaction to the heartstopping scene we witnessed seven days ago.

Here's an excerpt from what KLM19001 had to say in the comment area of last week's post:

"It's such a waste of my time to watch [someone] commit spiritual and physical suicide to have nothing come from it.

by Harley W. Lond, posted Mar 2nd 2010 10:56PM
If you needed proof that bookworms really rule the world, you need look no farther than HBO, which just greenlighted the highly anticipated fantasy series "Game of Thrones," based on George R. R. Martin's 'A Song of Ice and Fire' novels.

According to a report at THRLiveFeed, the pay cable network has picked up the project for a first season debut next spring and has ordered nine episodes (a pilot was shot last fall). Production will begin in Belfast in June with a cast that includes Mark Addy, Sean Bean, Peter Dinklage, Jennifer Ehle, Iain Glen and Lena Headey.

HBO Ready To Play 'Game of Thrones'

game of thronesSick of waiting for Guillermo Del Toro to adapt 'The Hobbit' for the big screen? This news might help tide you over: HBO has officially picked up fantasy series 'Game of Thrones' for a 10-episode season.

The show is based on George R. R. Martin's best-selling 'A Song of Ice and Fire' novels, which, admittedly, I have never read. Still, I'm excited about the possibilities for this series. HBO did family drama right ('Six Feet Under'), reinvented the Western ('Deadwood'), gave us a wonderfully quirky vampire show ('True Blood'), and the greatest police drama of all time ('The Wire'). I can't wait to see what an epic HBO fantasy series will look like.

Stargate vet joins HBO fantasy pilot

jason momoa game of thrones stargate atlantis HBO has added another cast member to its upcoming Game of Thrones pilot, based on George R.R. Martin's fantasy book series A Song of Ice and Fire. Stargate Atlantis alum Jason Momoa has been cast as Drogo, a powerful warlord who has never been defeated in battle.

This sounds like the perfect role for the hulking 6' 4" actor, best known as SGA's resident Wraith killin' badass, Ronon Dex. Hopefully, Momoa's potential Game of Thrones schedule won't keep him from appearing in the proposed Stargate Atlantis DVD movie/telefilm.

Peter Dinklage starring in HBO fantasy pilot

by Mike Moody, posted May 6th 2009 8:00PM
peter dinklageIt's about time Peter Dinklage returned to TV.

The actor has been tapped to play a key role in HBO's fantasy pilot Game of Thrones. The pilot is based on George R.R. Martin's "Songs of Fire and Ice" novels and will take place in a violent fantasy kingdom. Dinklage will play the brother of the kingdom's queen, who is shunned because of his size.

Game of Thrones will reunite Dinklage with The Station Agent director Tom McCarthy, who is directing the pilot. McCarthy seems like an odd choice to direct a fantasy pilot. The actor-turned-director has only helmed two films, Agent and The Visitor, both low budget character dramas. Hopefully, this means Game of Thrones will deliver good character drama, as well as cool fantasy elements.
