Thanks PhoneGrrrl those were funny.
The new GOT cookbook is out and April at Regretsy took it and ran with it: A SONG OF STARTERS AND MAINS | Regretsy
Thanks for the link, PG. Those videos are hilarious. I think Dany's is my favorite.
I doubt he's watching the show. The story lines are a bit complicated.
Production on season three is set to start soon! :yay That means casting announcements for new characters!

Game of Thrones Season 3: New Cast Members - Comic Con - YouTube
Yay at the Reeds - casting is on point. I remember the kid playing Jojen from Love Actually.
Lot of really good actors actually. Clive Russell should be excellent and Mackenzie Crook (Gareth from the Office!) should be good.
I was just coming here to post about ComiCon too, CCL! They also announced the premiere date for season 3: March 31, 2013. Mark your calendars! :yay
Highlights from the CC panel: 'Game Of Thrones' Season 3 Premiere Date, Casting News And More Highlights From Comic-Con Panel
HBO is running a season 1 marathon right now. "A Golden Crown" is on right now and when Ned calls for someone to hunt down The Mountain and bring him to justice, it's Beric Dondarrion that he calls forward and it's a different actor from the one they just announced for season 3. I wonder why they are recasting the role.
The Comic Con panels are up on YouTube. Here's part 1: (1 of 3) Game of Thrones, San Diego Comic Con 2012 - YouTube
ETA: This article has more news about season 3: Game Of Thrones Season 3 Casts A Ton Of Characters Including The Queen Of Thorns
The best news in that article is the casting of Tobias Menzies as Edmure Tully. I loved him as Brutus on Rome.
I'm so excited to see Diana Rigg as The Queen of Thorns! Perfect casting. So far really, I'm happy with all the casting choices for season 3. SO excited for the Reeds! I like both actors they chose.
The countdown begins to the premiere in (*SOB*) 8 1/2 months!
I think I read somewhere that the first actor they had for Dondarrion was more of a placeholder. They probably didn't know for certain how/when/to what extent they would use his character in future seasons (as they've cut some parts) and, as his initial appearance was relatively inconsequential, they probably didn't pay much attention to who was playing the part in the first season. Now that the role is more important they probably put more thought into who was playing the part.
I believe the Mountain was also re-cast?
I always thought Olenna was pronounced Oh-len-na but Diana Rigg pronounced it as O-lea-an-na?
