It's hard to believe the season is already half over, but HBO's Game of Thrones continues to go strong in its fifth episode, entitled "The Ghost of Harrenhal." Gruesome deaths, political schemes, hard truths, and revenge are par for the course in this series and nowhere is that more evident than in this episode.
The much anticipated second season of HBO’s Game of Thrones debuts this weekend on HBO Canada. We’ve seen the first four episodes of the upcoming season, and there’s a lot that fans of the novels and the series will be happy about for this second go around.
Last week we were fortunate enough to speak with actress Michelle Fairley, who plays Winterfell matriarch Cateyln Stark on HBO's Game of Thrones. We discussed the series, her character's headspace at the beginning of this season, Fairley's favourite season two characters, what the future holds for Catelyn Stark, and more!
Game of Thrones: The Exhibition opened yesterday in Toronto, and runs for he next eight days at the TIFF Bell Lightbox. Dork Shelf was lucky enough to get a guided tour on Thursday, and we were pretty impressed by all of the costumes, props, and weaponry from HBO's fantasy series that were on display.
When TIFF announced earlier this year that A Song of Ice and Fire author George R. R. Martin would be coming to the Bell Lightbox in Toronto for a speaking engagement, fans of his novels and the HBO series it spawned were elated. The "In Conversation..." event sounded great, but we knew that a simple visit would not be the only thing that the film fest group had in store for Game of Thrones fans. And boy, did they not disappoint. Today, TIFF along with HBO Canada and Random House announced Game of Thrones: The Exhibition.
