No Brandon Stark or Hodor for Game of Thrones Season 5

No Brandon Stark or Hodor for Game of Thrones Season 5 

Kristian Nairn, the actor who plays Hodor on HBO’s The Game of Thrones, has told fans that neither he nor Isaac Hempstead Wright (Brandon Stark) will be appearing in series five of the show.

The Curious Case of Game of Thrones 

Show of hands: how many people believed, back in 1997, that George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire would become a full-blown cultural phenomenon? Anybody? I didn’t think so. And yet, here we are. In one week, the fourth season of Game of Thrones will premier on HBO. These ten hours of television […]

Game of Thrones Movie?

Game of Thrones Movie? 

Last week we brought to your attention the fact that there was a battle of words and intentions going on between George R.R. Martin and HBO. To give you the short version: HBO said that although they didn’t want to they would write their own conclusion to Game of Thrones if George doesn’t finish book […]

Game of Thrones: TV To Overtake Books?

Game of Thrones: TV To Overtake Books? 

Since Game of Thrones for television was first announced, questions about whether the books would be able to keep up with the rate at which HBO produced episodes were asked.

Get Fit watching Game of Thrones

So, I was reading Men’s Fitness Magazine today when I came across a Game of Thrones fitness game. I guess you wouldn’t generally consider watching your favourite television series as capable of benefiting your exercise (you usually watch it whilst sprawled out on the sofa eating pizza and sipping coke/beer, right?), however, the magazine has […]

Winter has come…And gone.

Winter has come…And gone. 

“Winter is Coming” – it is all we heard for months and months before April’s premiere episode of Game of Thrones. HBO really went for it – they literally shoved Game of Thrones down our throats. I would argue that since the likes of Lost there had not been a show this hyped and we […]

Game of Thrones – The King’s Road

Game of Thrones – The King’s Road 

After the stellar first episode of Game of Thrones, Sunday has officially become the new geek night. As we gathered again for episode 2, I found myself both nervous and excited.
