    Hello from Benioff and Weiss

    I haven't been on the site in a long time so i just had to post and express how happy i am that Alexander Siddig was cast as Doran Martell. The reason is i posted in this thread years ago about how perfect Siddig would be for the show as either someone from the slavers bay area or Dorne.

    Board Issues 4

    This is only the second time i have been able to log into westeros in the last year. For months i attempted to log in from different computers and browsers and could never log in. The only way i was able to log in right now is by having both the "remember me" and "sign in anonymous" options clicked at the sign in screen. Is this a known issue that others have had because i know one other member of westeros has had the exact same problem.

    How would you rate episode 209?

    Ran, After reading your analysis there is something I must mention, im not sure if anyone else has mentioned it yet so I will. You talked about how the final Sandor/Sansa scene was missing something that happened in the book the giving of his Kingsguard whitecloak, the thing is she already has it!. In the scene where Sansa is being stripped by Ser Meryn and Tyrion comes in and saves her from further abuse, Sandor is the one who rips of his cloak and gives it to Sansa, she then leaves with it. From that scene on, Sandor no longer has a whitecloak in any other scenes. So Sansa does have Sandor's whitecloak to remember him by in the future. Obviously different then how it happened in the book but we end up with the same result. EDIT: i just double checked there is only one scene after the throne room scene where Sandor is wearing a whitecloak, the scene where Sansa thanks him for saving her. I think this was a continuity error more than anything, because except for that scene he never wears a cloak again after giving her his. No matter what though, she does have one of Sandors whitecloaks which is what is important.

    How would you rate episode 209?

    Best episode of the season, even with the changes here and there they did the battle of Blackwater justice. My favourite part of the episode was the Hound finally being shown the way he was meant to be shown, his Scene with Sansa though a little different was perfect. It was as if when GRRM was writing this episode he sat back and said these fuckers have not done Sandor Clegane justice in the series so far, let me show them how it is done. I wish GRRM could write every episode!.
  6. Just finished reading your analysis of the episode and i have to say i agree 100% with everything you and Linda had to say. With the exception of Arya and Tywin scene everything at Harrenhall was just awful, by far the worst writing of a scene or group of scenes in the series to date. I have decided that im just going to imagine that what they are doing at Qarth is a bad dream, im not going to care about Daenerys story again till she leaves Qarth. With all the bad there was, i still rate this episode an 7 because i feel everything else that happened was done and written well. The actors performance across the board were amazing, with Peter Dinklage and Alfie Allen stealing the show. Edit: just watched it again and i have to drop my original 8 down to a 7, luckily i forgot to to press the vote button earlier.

    John Rys Davies should play Lord Manderly when the time comes, or at least thats how i feel for the moment at least. I may change my mind but he would be great.

    [No Spoilers] EP 204 Discussion

    Without doubt best episode of the season in my mind, that is saying alot considering we saw nothing of the North or beyond the Wall which are my favourite story lines from the books. I really am starting to hate seeing Ros everywhere, but the scene in Joffreys chambers did what it needed to do which was to show how evil that little shit is. Only disappointment with the episode and the whole season so far is the lack of interaction with the Hound and Sansa, i mean we saw the hound throw her a quick glance and she was being beaten by Ser Meryn and he did give her his white cloak like in the book, but it didn't have half as much power as it did in the book. They only have 4 episodes before Blackwater, if they don't give the Hound and Sansa so more interactions with each other before then i fear they will be destroying one of the best sub plots in the series. With that said amazing Episode, best so far.

    How Would You Rate Episode 109?

    Everyone complaining we didn't see the battles, sure i would have liked to see the battles as well. But they did what was necessary for the budget and in my opinion even though i wanted to see the battles, the show gave us more than enough good stuff to enjoy. Now that the show has become a monster of a worldwide phenomenon, season 2's budget has increased ive heard and they are pulling out all the stops for the Blackwater episode. I also just read how HBO sources are saying they are setting things up right now to shoot seasons 3 and 4 (Storm of Swords) in one long 9 month shooting period. So HBO it seems is definitely behind the show big time now and i wouldn't be surprised if we see even bigger budgets for seasons 3 and 4 so im not worried.

    Welcome, my best advice is. If your still reading the books, be very careful in the forums. You will be spoiled quicker than you can believe. I would say sticking to the Still reading threads is the best way to get the most enjoyment. General ASOIAF, though is ruthless. And now that ADWD spoilers are allowed freely, you can spend an hour in there and have all 5 books spoiled for you. Gen Chat and Entertainment are also good forums, where you don't have to worry about any spoliers. No one really ever talks about the books in there. But again Welcome :)

    Hello from Benioff and Weiss

    Ive been thinking lately about the Queen of thorns, I think Maggie Smith is the perfect actress for her. I can already see her ordering around left ad right.

    Want to have an avatar/user pic? Read this thread.

    Originally to get a picture to work as an avatar on this site, you had to resize it to 100x100. Ive noticed since the upgrade a month or so ago, it doesn't matter what size the picture is anymore, my avatar is actually 400x480 but the site accepted it with out me having to resize it. The one issue since the upgrade though is no matter if you have a picture that is longer vertically or horizontally, they all get squashed into a perfect square, whereas before that wasn't the case. If i were you i would reupload your pic to imageshack, leave its size as is and direct link to that one. I noticed the same thing about the quality of the picture when forced to shrink it. Heres a couple examples of images from my imageshack, all of these are larger than 100x100 thumbnail avatar size, but i link these exactly as is and they work perfectly as my avatar. http://img845.imageshack.us/img845/7628/crowravensnowwinter9900.jpg http://img710.imageshack.us/img710/1311/crowforwebsite.png http://img833.imageshack.us/img833/9895/crowbgt.jpg

    Unofficial Stark and Targaryen Skins for Westeros

    These look amazing Goat, ive been anxiously awaiting these new versions since you told me about them. Well worth the wait, I am digging the Stark skin. I noticed the same thing Kat noticed, threads that ive already read, are the same Grey as threads i haven't read yet. Im using Mozilla, otherwise amazing. You did a great job with these skins. EDIT: It seems i was wrong, threads ive read are showing up as an extremely light Grey or white. So they are showing up as a different colour than non read threads. Again great work Goat.

    Want to have an avatar/user pic? Read this thread.

    Sometimes the problem is if you open an account on imageshack, the account doesn't become officially valid until you get the conformation email and click the link validating the account. Any image you uploading won't link for you till you validate the account, thats what happened to me originally. Took me a few tries to get my Avatar up and running properly too.

    Want to have an avatar/user pic? Read this thread.

    I find the best site for hosting images to use as avatars is www.imgaeshack.com its free to sign up and im not sure the limit of photos you can upload for free i have like a 100 right now. I get my avatar through linking to my imageshack, also some frineds of mine here at westeros link through my account as well its easy and free you should look into it. It also lets you resize images extremely easy, i think you can even upload and use pics without making an account try messin around with it.

    Hello from Benioff and Weiss

    I hope so, that would be amazing. I just hope especially moving into later season the expand the cast Ethnically. i don't know about anyone else but i felt the part of Hallyene the pyromancer, was more suited to an middle eastern actor.
  24. Im new to the ASOIAF fandom but when i was reading alot of other sites when i was first learning about the series i had come across the same thing that ADWD would have been about danys landing with the dragons in westeros. Obviously things have changed and it's gonna take more books for the truth to emerge. And i think 9 books is the magic number.

    Hello from Benioff and Weiss

    Look with Danerys story begging to expand across the narrow sea we begin to see a much more racially diverse set of characters. There are to actors both of whom were in Kingdom of heaven and were amazing who i think would be amazing additions to the cast as characters in Qarth or definitely Meereen or Astapor somewhere along Danys ventures through the slave lands. First is also from Deep Space Nine Fame Alexander Siddig plays Iman a Muslim general i think in Kingdom of Heaven. The second actor i think would be perfect i think especially as any number of big Meereenese characters is Ghassan Massoud who plays Saladin and gives an amazing performance throughout Kingdom of Heaven.
