A Taste of Season Two

HBO gave us all a little taste of season two of GAME OF THRONES tonight, with an "In Production" feature before the latest kickass episode of BOARDWALK EMPIRE.

In case you missed it...



Lots of our new second season characters can be glimpsed therein... Melisandre, Stannis, Davos, Brienne, Margaery, and so many more...

You'll meet them all in April.

Good luck with next book George. It is one of the best book I've ever read. Movie is very good as well, but the book is soooo much better.

Any idea who's the blonde behind Cat?

based on the crowned stag banner in the background, Cat's at Renly's camp, so my guess is that's Loras behind her...

Seasons and years
Hello George and rest of the people here,
I am new to the books(recently read all five). What I cannot figure out is this- What is the basis of years in westeros? Years were introduced as a unit of time based on when the seasons recurred, in civilizations of old. What is the basis of years in westeros? Was there a time in history of westeros when seasons repeated yearly?
I don't know if this is the right place to ask this question, I am sorry if it is not.

Re: Seasons and years
Years were NOT based on seasons, actually. They were based on astronomonical observations, the positions of the stars in the sky. It's the same in Westeros.

Dunk and Egg
George,

Last April I caught the first episode of GoT when it aired. I wasn't looking for it, it was more a "Hey, I wonder what's on tonight" scenario. But immediately I was hooked. I mean like, at the end of the introduction before the credits. By the end of Ep3 I started salivating each week, counting the hours until Sunday night.

At the conclusion of Episode 10, pissed as I was that I was going to have to wait so long to find out what happened, I logged on to Amazon and overnighted the four available novels. I finished all four in a few weeks (yes, my life came to a sudden halt) and RUSHED out the night ADoDs came out (Which I promptly read in 3 days)...

Anyway, I say as this to make a point. And now to my point as I know your time is limited fighting the monkeys it were: I was FINALLY able to get my hands on the three Dunk and Egg novellas this weekend. To my surprise, I liked them even more than ASoIaF.

I hope that series runs a LONG time. Thanks you, Ser! (Spell in proper Common Tongue of course.) Oh Geeze! I've become one of those people.

Jon Snow

I am looking forward to Jon Snow story to continue in the movie. He is in my opinion the most interesting character of the book who has classical hero appearance. I think it was Joseph Campbell who made a list where it is described what features any hero in western literature should have. I don't remember all of them by heart, but some are
1. one of the parents is unknown
2. character possess some secret strength
3. character have some extraordinary weapon
4. he is loved by different women
5. he is honorable and just
6. quite often he has very humble origins though his real blood line is noble
etc and etc

I had this list somewhere and once I read all 5 books and saw the movie it came to my mind right away. So I am looking forward to see him in the new episode and hopefully in the new 6th book.
