    Seeing Dianna Rigg as Olenna Tyrell suddenly makes me feel like watching SciFi’s Dune. She looks like a Bene Gesserit

    Ygritte looks so beautiful in that picture, I can’t wait for North of the Wall this season, particularly for a certain cave scene. ;-) Beric Dondarrion doesn’t look as corpsy as I thought he would. Catelyn looks so sad.

    Was so excited to see tvline was finally showing pics as a slideshow…and then it stopped working after the third pic…oh well at least we’re making some sort of progress

    Where’s my favorite Misfits hottie: Iwan Rheon – I’m pretty sure he got cast as Ramsay Snow ?! Need pics stat :)

    This show has potential to be one of my favorites, but they have such an incredibly huge cast of characters that it makes it quite difficult for me to follow most of the time. It frustrates my friend who reads the books and wants to talk about the show with me because I never remember or understand half of what he’s talking about that happened in the episodes, lol. Game of Thrones makes me feel like a ditz. I probably need to go back and rewatch the previous seasons so that I’ll understand it more.
