We discuss felling our enemies with Sword Tiaras, Skyrim’s influence on Game of Thrones, Arya’s Meg Ryan haircut, Gendry’s makeover, the testicle CG crew, Varys’s lack of mustache, the rule of threes, potatoes, and listen all the way to the end for a brief but special post script.
We’re back to our roots, with Ivan and Red covering the season premiere of Game of Thrones. We talk secret previews, Sam Tarley’s auditioning skills, STANNIS, Peter Dinklage acting into a mirror, sibling love, Joffrey coming into his own as King, bastard murder montage, CGI budget related to Dire Wolf growth, and so much more.
