Houses Collide: A Weekly Game of Thrones Discussion — Feminism, Executions and Other Westeros

Sean Bean, Miltos Yeromelou, Maisie Williams

Last week, we delved into Game of Thrones' heavy-handed foreshadowing of those darn dragon's eggs. This week, we discuss some of the standout characters (Daenerys! Arya!) from Episode 3  who've kept us intrigued with their decidedly non-medieval ways.

TVGuide.com's Hanh Nguyen is an avid scripted-TV watcher, a horror-avoider and someone who's read George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire book series, on which HBO's Game of Thrones is based. Her co-worker, Rich Juzwiak, rarely watches scripted TV, is a gorehound and became alerted to Martin's existence just recently, as he started researching this new swords-and-sandals (well, boots) series. He knows nothing of these sorcerers (if that is indeed what they are), while Hanh is something of an expert (read: fantasy/sci fi nerd). Each week, he'll try to make sense of this crazy new show by enlisting Hanh's expertise. It may turn out to be a test of tolerance: in this case, the Games begin after the TV is off.

Game of Thrones' Kit Harington: "Oh God, I'm a Bastard!"

John Bradley, Kit Harington

In the cutthroat world of Game of Thrones, it's not easy being a bastard.

It's also a challenge playing one. Newcomer Kit Harington tells TVGuide that he had to learn to embrace the term "bastard," which is used quite frequently and openly in the series to describe his character Jon Snow, the illegitimate son of Winterfell's Lord Ned Stark (Sean Bean).

Game of Thrones' Mark Addy: Robert Is "Not Really a Kingly King"

Mark Addy

In Game of Thrones' debut, viewers met King Robert Barantheon, a laid-back monarch who seems more interested in wenching and quenching various appetites than in ruling the Seven Kingdoms. On Sunday, the show will give insights into the fat man who sits on the Iron Throne and the cause of much bloodshed to come.

"The thing about Robert is that he's not really a kingly king," Mark Addy, who plays Robert, tells TVGuide.com "He's really a guy, a warrior, a soldier who happens to find himself in a position of power. He'd much rather be with the lads. That's his roots, his heritage."

HBO Unveils Newest Epic Series Game of Thrones

Sean Bean

Winters that last decades. Zombielike creatures called "white walkers." Supersized wolves. A cache of dragon eggs. Game of Thrones, based on the best-selling fantasy novels by George R.R. Martin, is definitely not of this world. But it centers on one of the most familiar things on earth: mighty families vying for ultimate control.

Roush Review: Grim Thrones Is a Crowning Achievement

Mark Addy

Everyone keeps warning that "Winter is coming" in Game of Thrones, but I can't remember the last series that packed this much heat. After putting its distinctive stamp on genres as diverse as the mob drama (The Sopranos and Boardwalk Empire), the Western (Deadwood), the urban crime saga (The Wire), the period-piece potboiler (Rome), the horror-show bodice-ripper (True Blood), HBO now turns its extravagant attention to adult epic fantasy. HBO has found its answer to Lord of the Rings in adapting George R.R. Martin's enthralling, sprawling, ruthlessly brutal and magnificently entertaining series of page-turners.

HBO Releases New Game of Thrones Teasers

Game of Thrones

HBO's Game of Thrones won't debut until sometime next year, so you'll just have to make do with the cable channel's teases.

Before Sunday's True Blood finale, HBO offered another peek at its upcoming lavish adaptation of George R.R. Martin's fantasy novel series. The clip, which focuses on a raven and features a few washed-out glimpses of the series main characters, ends with the line, "Winter is coming."
