Recent trailer - very good. I'm very curious about this show - I mean we already have 2 good trailers, one bad and one awful poster. And JapieQ I admire your photoshop skills, though I would like to have more turtles - and yes, that's excellent promo for 5 season - Turtles are coming!

Merged the HD - Game of Thrones Season 2: "Seven Devils" Trailer thread with the A Game of Thrones: Season 2.
Have any of you even considered that maybe George just isn't that good? That he got lucky with the first three books? That he had a great story leading up to the Red Wedding and the rest of the story he has no frickin' clue? haha Does that even cross your minds? ~ Shawn Speakman 1/31/2012

I'm on a phone now, so can't post links but what do you guys thinks of the CGI Grey Wind shot? Doesn't look half bad at all. And the Simpsons GoT intro was hilarious.

Well, the shot of Grey Wind was kind of short - I agree it looked good, though I'm not sure, how it will look like in long shots (if they will risk to take them). At least they do not use huskies anymore (don't get me wrong - I really loved them, they were cute, but as it was indicated by Slynt "not really a dire, and not really wolves";-)

P.S. I saw Simpsons GoT intro - great fun!

I love the new trailer!! Really, really great, and the music helps a lot to set the feeling. It's suitably epic.
The shot of Grey Wind is amazing, for those of you who haven't seen it, check it out

The look on Grey Wind's eyes is almost human

ps: sorry for the huge image, how can I make it smaller?

Indeed. And thank you for the snapshot.

Oh, Robb you should have listen to your wolf mate!... :(

When you take the image link directly from somewhere over the i-net I think the procedure would be slow:
- download it on your PC and then;
- upload it with some useful program - for example the one that you have used for your avatar. In my case it is usually Imagesnack. When you are uploading it - you shall define the desireble size of the image. 800/600 is the one that almost any "modern" monitor and PC video card would reproduce without overstretching the eyes pf the beholder...
And under 'modern' I meam anything that still shines at the front and would basically include also GRRM specially designated DOS writing machine.

Not sure if it was helpful But I usually make it this way.

The Simpsons did a parody of the AGOT opening - http://io9.com/5890410/watch-the-simpsons-game-of-thrones-intro

Yeah, it was very cool (especially Burns Landing and The Couch) and, above all, it gives Game of Thrones more popularity. Do you think the HBO has paid Matt Groening to include this in the Simpsons?

All I can say is that I would shit my pants if Grey Wind was staring me down. Glad HBO has the budget to do decent CGI.

Are y'all keeping up with the trailers? Yet another one.



In no particular order
- Cercei slaps Joff (and so is no longer the one-dimensional cartoon villain from the books)**

- Joff with Ros. Wut?

- Osha in bed with Theon

- Renly has some heterosexual sexytimes with Margaery

- Asha/Yara is not the sexy badass from the books (and Theon's hand is making its way towards her iron swamp)

can't wait to see Asha trolling the shit out of theon :troll:
"In the granaries were oats and wheat and barley, and barrels of coarse ground flour... onions and garlic... and bags of carrots, parsnips, radishes, and white and yellow turnips... wheels of cheese so large it took two men to move them... casks of salt beef, salt pork, salt mutton, and salt cod were stacked ten feet high. Three hundred hams and three thousand long black sausages... peppercorns, cloves, and cinnamon, mustard seeds, coriander, sage and clary sage and parsley" etc, etc, and so on...
