301 days. Not that anyone’s counting, but that is how long it will have been when “Valar Dohaeris,” the first episode of Game of Thrones‘ highly anticipated third season debuts. That’s how long we’ve had to wait since season two took its final bow. Not that anyone’s counting. For my own part, the opportunity to bring back the Blog of Thrones is a great one. Truly one of the most enjoyable parts of my job, blogging through the kingdom of Westeros offers my usually tame sensibilities to explode into the realm of fantasy. Long have I not been one for big fantasy adventures (sorry, Lord of the Rings and Star Wars), there’s something about George R.R. Martin’s creation that has captured my spirited attention. So here we are, almost a year removed from where we left off. It’s time to take a look back, talk season two (spoilers aplenty, so be sure you’re caught up) and a look forward to what we might expect from season three (no book spoilers, just wild hints and accusations). Come along as we continue our journey toward taking the Iron Throne for ourselves.


Game of Thrones: Valar Morghulis

As HBO’s “Previously on Game of Thrones” reel runs to its completion and the theme rises, it’s hard not to be wistful upon the closing of the second season of this cult hit of a show. For those of you who’ve been following along as I blog my way through season two, you’ll surely find a bit of sadness in this being the last entry into the Blog of Thrones series for the year. And even though it’s coming a few days later than usual, there’s still plenty to talk about. So don’t be too sad when it’s all said and done. Besides, this has been so much fun to write that I wouldn’t be surprised (if I were you) to see Blog of Thrones pop up periodically in between seasons two and three. With reflections on season two, thoughts on season three, thoughts on my readings of the books, thoughts on casting, thoughts on life in Westeros, and many other thoughts brewing around this fine series of stories, there may just be enough to keep Blog of Thrones going on a monthly basis in between now and early 2013, when the show will return for an undoubtedly epic third season. But for now, lets talk about “Valar Morghulis.” As always, Blog of Thrones is written from the perspective of a relative novice to George R.R. Martin’s books. It focuses solely on Game of Thrones the show and assumes that you’ve seen everything up to the latest episode. If you travel down this Kingsroad […]



Jim Sheridan’s ‘Brothers’ remake is a fine, old-fashioned drama starring Tobey Maguire, Natalie Portman and Jake Gyllenhaal. Like many of Sheridan’s other movies, it’s all about family.



In the first bit of casting news for HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” the production absolutely nails it with the addition of Peter Dinklage and Tom McCarthy.
