    I said this in the wrong thread, I think the costumes in this show are unbelievable. I especially loved the outfits the Iron Islander ship crews were wearing, they looked like armour-plated oilskin suits with hoods and everything.

    Indeed. Sets, props and costumes on the show have really impressed me so far.

    What?!?! The Iron Men sail cogs? Outrage! Sacrilege!

    There can be no iron price paid by a man who takes his house to sea.

    Yeah, that was such bullshit. I hope it's only the Sea Bitch, and it's just an additional insult to Theon.

    If all the Iron Fleet is made up of cogs, I say we get all the Scandinavians together, build some long ships and sail over and sack HBO's monasteries. And take their gold.

    HBO is inland bro.

    It's actually really good, once you get past the first silly chapter or two

    Seems to be something called the Vinland Saga.

    This manga is excellent (not to mention historically sound minus some artistic license) by the way. Not typical manga fare at all

    I haven't read the books so I don't know if they really go into describing what people wear but

    I am consistently impressed at all the outfits for every person/group. They do an amazing job of setting apart different factions, and also making really baller shit for individuals to make them stand out for themselves

    I'm most impressed that they make these ridiculously nice costumes and then don't even show them off.

    Like if I was directing I would not be able to resist a long pan up every new faction's totally boss armor. Especially that new armor of Stannis's crew

    At some point I was watching a video on how they made Renly's suit of armour.

    Can't find it now but that thing was fucking insane, and kept mostly underneath that big old cloak.

    Theon does look like the kind of guy that would whip out an electric guitar at the slightest provocation.

    "You insulted my honor as Ironborn, this is the kind of insult that can only be settled with an axe *whips out a electric guitar*"

    P.S: "On we sweep with, with threshing oar
    Our only goal will be the Westeros!"

    HA!

    I looove all the costumes and sets. It is one of my favourite things about HBO shows, Deadwood and The Borgias were the same. On repeat watchings I like to pause and really take in all the details. It amazes me that they design, create and place just so much fantastic crap in the background of a scene that'll only be used once, for 3 minutes or something, and where all the viewers are going to be focussed on the characters.

    That's the wonder of having a budget I guess. Man I would love to play in their props/costumes store.

    The costumes are great, but the Stark soldiers' onion helmets don't exactly inspire confidence.

    Fuck off and die.

    A tilt would look funny though, you'd end up looking up their nostrils.

    Just watched this week's, that was a great episode! Not much action but Qarth was super fancy and weird to look at, Brienne was cool, Harrenhal stuff was rad and everything with Tyrion/Bronn was just great. Tyrion had some brilliant lines ("Tell Bronn to please kill you if anything should happen to me") and his tiny litter was just adorable.

    I'm also constantly amazed at how many male hotties there are in this show. I think I have a thing for grubby men in medieval outfits.

    Tywin is great. And I love Charles Dance's voice. I have a dream of Alan Rickman being cast in this show so he and Dance can just talk at each other forever.

    emily can never remember tywin's name so I started referring to him as "The Butcher King" and now I think that's about a thousand times cooler

    They didn't make Dinklage do backflips and acrobatics in the first season when they were at Winterhold, so I don't see a problem not doing everything 100% by the book

    To be fair, by the time you finish the books this seems so out of character for Tyrion that I completely forget it even happens.

    Tywin seemed like he was smiling at Arya in this last episode.

    I'm trying to think of something from the books that would lead to that reference and I don't think I have anything.

    Fill me in? Am I just being forgetful?

    When we first see Tywin in the show he's butchering an elk (deer?) carcass.

    later books spoilers

    Brolo on
  • ArangArang Registered User regular
    I think the part where he's butchering the deer is his first on-screen appearance in the show

    thenews.jpg
  • Skull ManSkull Man Registered User regular
    when they introduce him in season 1 he's butchering a deer the entire time he's berating jamie

    which led to a joke I made about a fat little stereotypical king, all white beard and ermine robe, who blunders in during the monologue all "Jamie! My most precious son, pride of my life!" and then shoos off Tywin by like jabbing at him with his scepter all "Get out of here, you butcher! Back to your butching!"

  • FyndirFyndir Registered User regular
    Oh, cool, that sounds pretty similar to a story Sam tells Jon in the books about his father?

    Glad to know my mind is still functional, thanks. 8->

  • Skull ManSkull Man Registered User regular
    yeah I guess they applied it to Tywin because Sam's dad is kind of who cares and Tywin rules
