War Comes to King's Landing


War comes to King's Landing in this week's episode of Game Of Thrones. The NY Post has the story.

Quote:
'Game of Thrones” is bucking to be the one with the battle scene to beat for all future TV series.

This Sunday, HBO debuts “GoT’s” highly-anticipated “Blackwater” episode — the brutal battle that the fantasy series has been barreling towards since Season 2 premiered last month.

Fans denied a big battle sequence last season, due to budgetary constraints, are all abuzz about the upcoming epic battle.

“The whole of the book [‘A Clash of Kings’] is building to this major battle,” says Elio M. Garcia, Jr., co-founder of Westeros.org, a fansite dedicated to George R.R. Martin’s books, on which the series is based.

“The actual battle in the book goes over several chapters . . . It’s the biggest battle we have in the series to date and [it’s] five books in.”

Although Garcia hasn’t seen the episode himself, “I know people who have [seen it] and they told me it’s incredible,” he says.

“ ‘Like nothing they’d ever seen before on television,’ is the phrase one of them used.”

The battle for control of King’s Landing, fictional Westeros’ seat of government, involves more than 200 ships and 100,000 combatants. It takes place on both land and sea.

To bring this to life, “GoT” built an 80-foot high battle set, complete with working castle walls and gates, in a quarry in Ireland. The episode was shot over the course of a month. (Hour-long dramas typically shoot an episode a week.)

Showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss had to beg HBO for extra cash to make the episode and pay for its visual effects.

If I were a mod I would ban you for this outrage!

I met GRRM, got all my books signed, bought the first season on BluRay, and subscribed to HBO just for season 2. I hardly ever watch anything on TV.

And you call this "made for TV crap". It's better than most Hollywood movies.

Most would if this were a mainstream gaming site where free thinking is discouraged. Luckily EvAv cracked the recipe for forums hits fueled by tears long ago.

Free thinking. That's rich. You're a slave to your persona.

You should quote someone when personally attacking them. It makes you look like less of a coward.

I have quite enjoyed this series so far and am looking forward to the big fight scene. It has been time well wasted in my opinion. My only gripe about this show is that there are not enough episodes in a season.

But seriously, if you can't take the time to ask me on steam live, then you've been too busy with your nose to the pavement slumming it in some console garbage.
