If GoT was shot in the late 1960s early 70s - for fun

As I posted on a thread in the main website today I broke my dominant arm before Xmas so even though there are loads of household chores to do I haven't been able to manage them so have had time on my hands [well I tried some left-handed dusting but I wasn't very good at it. Anyway, here are my thou...

Re: So how could S7 have been improved?

I think the season could have done with more episodes to develop the story. As there were some wight giants why not have wight giants carrying some chains? I know some people had concerns that the provenance chains used to pull Viserion's body from the pool was not obvious. As we are now nearing the...

Re: Season 7 Costumes: *Wow*

There have been some goods posts in Watchers on the Wall about the costumes but there is a Canadian lady who does a YouTube channel Costumer Co who goes into detail about the GoT costumes and costumes from other shows if anybody ever fancied something in depth about the costumes. I'm not affiliated ...

Re: The She-Wolf of the Vale

To be honest I wasn't that impressed with the preview Sansa chapter from WoW and I am a person who has never disliked Sansa the way some readers have. Apart from the inaccessibility of the Vale, I never thought that Littlefinger was oh so brilliant to take her there when it was where her mother's si...

Re: AGOT special edition

I think you should hang on to it (unless you really need the money). Sometimes it's nice just to have something, well...nice. Changing the subject slightly, does anyone know if the tandem read of AFFC and ADWD is worth the effort? I don't usually reread books but while I didn't hate either AFFC or A...

Re: Any thoughts on readers/voice actors for ASOIAF/GoT?

I wasn't sure if anyone would respond to this thread and I'm glad to see there have been a few comments. Zukester (hope I have the name right) mentioned Ian Holm. I'm old enough to have gone with the school to see him playing the title role in Richard III with the RSC at Stratford-upon-Avon er...a l...

Spot the random GOT actor

As I'm based in the UK and the showrunners decided that an English accent would be the "go-to" accent for Westeros, I suppose I (and my countryfolk) am (are) a little more likely to see actors who have played in GoT in other productions. I don't want to go over the really well-known examples but I c...

Any thoughts on readers/voice actors for ASOIAF/GoT?

Since the passing of the late, great Roy Dotrice I've been thinking about voice actors who could carry the torch when hopefully WoW is published or if a radio dramatisation of ASOIAF were ever to be made. One possibility I considered was British voice actor Gabriel Woolf (not Gabriel Wolf - that is ...

Re: Transgender actors in GoT - what a load of cods!

Actually folks I have now realised that these silly "transinvestigation|" videos have been going on for some considerable time and not just about people in GoT. I just got annoyed and had my rant. When I find time I might post links to some more positive GoT related videos to be more upbeat (or as u...
