<I>Game of Thrones</I>: Our Season 2 Casting Suggestions

The recent announcement that Christopher Eccleston may be joining the cast of Game of Thrones has only increased our anticipation for Season 2. So we grabbed our tattered copy of the second book, A Clash of Kings, and started thinking up casting suggestions for some of the other major new characters.

Westeros Unscripted: Reality Shows Inspired by <i>Game of Thrones</i>

With heads being chopped off, little kids getting pushed off of high ledges and Peter Dinklage bedding whores, the much-anticipated premiere of HBO's Game of Thrones was pretty awesome and we're looking forward to the rest of the season. But it's not enough. We want our fantasy literature addiction to combine with our favorite guilty pleasure TV genre and produce more shows that take place in the world created by George R.R. Martin.

TWoP 10: Shows That Should Have Holiday Episodes (But Won't)

Sitcoms get to have all the fun during the holidays, leaving dramas out in the cold when it comes to warm and fuzzy (and sometimes bloody) winter episodes. There are a handful of scripted series we'd love to see celebrate the season with themed episodes, and we're so convinced of their potential that we've even come up with suggested plotlines for them. You can thank us after New Year's.
