Game of Copy and Paste

This is a little old by now, but I thought I’d share anyway.

The screen-capture below comes from “Breaker of Chains,” the third episode of Game of Thrones‘ fourth season (it aired on 4/20/2014). I noticed it right away, but haven’t had time to confirm and share it until now.

Apparently the CGI dragon effects from episode one ate into the budget for extras on the walls of Meereen.

Dead Season Discussion: Knocking Over the Board in Game of Thrones Season 3 (Part 3 of 4)

GoT

Welcome to the second installment of Dead Series Discussion, where Patches of Nothing but the Rain and I will discuss Season 3 of HBO’s Game of Thrones. Not only is Game of Thrones more popular than our first effort, ABC’s Last Resort, but we also like it more, meaning we probably won’t spend 2,000+ words discussing what we didn’t like about the show. Like our previous Dead Series Discussion, this is a multi-part series. Part 1, Part 2 and Part 4 are available. You’re reading Part 3.

If the title didn’t make SEASON 3 SPOILERS obvious, then you need to start paying attention while you read. There are also spoilers for the first two seasons of Game of Thrones and the first 3 books of George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series. There are, however, NO spoilers from books 4 and 5, beyond one mention of the general timeline for those books and what season 3 of the TV show covers.

SPOILERS ABOUND!

For the last two days, we’ve discussed Game of Thrones’ third season. Today, we get a little more specific and dish out some superlatives covering performances, episodes, scenes and the like. Continue reading
