'Game of Thrones' series Greenlighted

Posted by Jack S. Pharaoh on Tuesday, March 2, 2010

Holy fuck, yes. I know this means nothing to almost everyone here, but I've been waiting for this since the book series was first optioned three years ago. They even released the first production still, a shot apparently from the prologue of the book. So, yes, people, deal with me starting random threads and forcing irrelevant knowledge upon you. This is how Jack does business, aggresively and in a pompous third-person. Pray I never decide to educate the lot of you about pregnancy.

The 2 designs they showed didn't really look like the actors playing the parts (Jon Snow and Tyrion (Peter Dinklage)). My guess is they're not using the show as a basis.

I haven't really read much about it, but I don't think they're using the show, at least not initially. This link provides some examples of character sketches (the same can also be found on Martin's blog); they don't appear to resemble the actors at all.

This fan-made map of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros is pretty cool; it's filled with allusions to events and characters in the books, though I can't identify them all.  Good work by the artist.

Here's Maisie Williams again in a new production still HBO released this week.  Her character, Arya, is giving her ditzy older sister, Sansa, the stink-eye.

I've finished the absolutely absorbing The God Delusion, and am back to A Game of Thrones.  I was just introduced to Arya.  Looks like good casting.

Jeez, Jake, slow down! You'll be finished with the book in five or six years at this rate.

Are thirtysomething men going to be talking about wanting to do Arya the way they did with Hit Girl?

I think Chloe (and Hit Girl) is awesome.  I don't want to do her.

You're no longer thirtysomething, though, so you're exempt.

Most importantly, how is Jack going to stop Adam from watching this show, ever?

Adam's pretty slow on the uptake with non-network shows, so it should be all good.

I just heard that the 6th series of Dr. Who has been canceled since Adam has started watching the show.

I should really add 550 days (about a year and a half), because that's when I'll get around to actually watching the eps.

It's slow going, as I haven't had a lot of free time.  They recently finished the Hand's Tourney and Arya just overheard something she probably shouldn't have done.

There are an awful lot of characters, but it's not difficult to keep track of who's who and when we jump from one storyline to the next, I'm never wishing I could get back to a different one.  They're all equally interesting.  I'm digging it.

That's a lot further than I thought you'd be. Could you tell who the two characters were Arya overheard? Threads about that come up all the time at the Westeros board by newbies, and I usually scoff, then remember that maybe I couldn't be sure who they were on my first read-through, either. I think I pretty much knew, though.

I thought they were 2 of the dire wolves when I read it.

I suspect that Varys is one of them.

Illyrio would be the other, his description matches when we first meet him early on.

Yeah, it's 'em. Or, at least, that's what most fans seem to think. It's never explicitly mentioned, though it is hinted at later on that Varys and Illyrio are buddies. Why Illyrio would've snuck into KL (besides to conspire with Varys over their plans), where, and how long, he would've stayed are all still unknown.
