So last night’s episode of Game of Thrones continues high expectations for the series with some great new moments. But as the series continues, and deaths pile up, there of course needs to be new characters. Fans of the TV series were already introduced to major new figures like Mance Rayder, the King Beyond the Wall, in the season 3 premiere. But now HBO has a new featurette starring the cast and crew of Game of Thrones as they talk about many of the new characters introduced this season. Discussed in the featurette posted below are:
Olenna Tyrell “The Queen of More >
At this point, one must question if there was any doubt whether or not Game of Thrones would get a 4th season. The incredibly successful HBO show based off the works of George RR Martin has millions of followers and most of them seem to have tuned in on Easter’s record-breaking premiere. Sunday’s season 3 premiere of Game of Thrones saw an average of 4.4 million viewers tuned in for the 9PM airing. With this, HBO confidently announced that it would be bringing back the series for another season today. Season 4 will focus on the latter half of George More >
We at Speak Geeky To Me decided to skip the traditional trickery played out on this fun day here in 2013. Sure, we thought about informing you that Superman: Red Son was being made into DC’s next live action movie or that Angelina Jolie had signed on to play Grace in Aspen MLT’s upcoming Soulfire film. We considered posting about Orson Scott Card being hired at Marvel to write an on-going series involving a gay Hyperion or even mentioning George Lucas’ agreement with Bob Iger to make Star Wars Land in Des Moines, Iowa. But in the end, we just More >
It has been almost 10 months since season 2 of HBO’s Game of Thrones ended with the dramatic episode, Valar Morghulis. As some of you Song of Ice and Fire fans might be aware, “Valar Morghulis” is High Valyrian for “all men must die”. This old Valyrian phrase is traditionally answered with “Valar Dohaeris,” meaning “all men must serve”. Equally, HBO is responding to the season 2 finale ending of Valar Morghulis with the season 3 premiere episode, entitled Valar Dohaeris. The episode premieres in 1 week, on March 31st at 9PM. It is sure to be a crazy season, More >
Late last night HBO released a new trailer for the upcoming third season of Game of Thrones, entitle war. We can certainly see the darker parts of the first half of a Storm of Swords, George RR Martin’s third novel in the Song of Ice and Fire heptalogy, in this trailer. The visuals and narration combined build fans up for the upcoming battles set to take place across Westeros. Sure, at the end of season 2 we saw a crippling battle at Blackwater, outside of King’s Landing, that heavily set back Stannis Baratheon’s forces. But while the Lannister’s maintain strength, More >
It has been nine months since the finale of Game of Thrones season 2. Nine months since the battle of Black Water. Nine months since Arya learned the words Valar Morghulis. Nine months since young Daenerys Stormborn Targaryen reclaimed her dragons. Nine months since young Jon Snow was captured by the wildlings of the north. Nine long months and we have one more to go before season 3 airs on HBO, this March 31st. But soon there will be dragons, and this trailer shows much much more to come this spring.
Winter is coming.
Perhaps one of the more amusing moments on the Game of Thrones Season 1 DVD/Blu-ray from HBO was when the Stark kids busted out singing over the opening theme song of the show in the episode 3 commentary. It was incredibly unexpected yet absolutely hilarious. Now as season 2 prepares for DVD/Blu-ray release on February 19th we’ve sadly learned the kids wont be humming through the theme yet again…they’ll be doing something much better! On the Season 2 Episode 3 commentary track, Isaac Hempstead-Wright (Bran Stark), Maisie Williams (Arya Stark), and Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) will be beatboxing and rapping More >
Season 3 of HBO’s beloved Game of Thrones TV series starts up March 31st of next year (which makes the impressive 03-31-13 numerical date in the States).

This season takes place in the first half of the Storm of Swords novel by George RR Martin and, as readers know, will have quite a few intense twists. So check out the video below and keep a keen More >
As season 3 of Game of Thrones starts casting, it has finally been announced that the supporting role of Mance Rayder has been cast. Mance Rayder should be well known to any fans reading the George RR Martin novels, but even fans who are watching the TV show only have likely heard the name, as it refers to the ‘evil wilding’ that rules north of the wall and plays villain to the brothers of the Nightwatch. So who will portray Rayder in the 3rd season of Game of Thrones? Why it’ll be Irish actor Ciarán Hinds playing Mance Rayder, who some of More >
