Yeah no, the bit where he gets shot by a crow? That's a metaphor for ... I want to say the war in Iraq? Don't worry, I'm all over this.
When Game of Thrones returns to our screens next week, fans might notice a subtle change regarding the costumes of their favourite characters. Namely that they'll be wearing them.
Closer research reveals this is the 2010 film Chicago Overcoat, repackaged for its UK DVD release in 2013. It's almost as if they were trying to capitalise on Boardwalk Empire's popularity over here. (Though it isn't especially popular over here, so nice job all round.)
I should like to draw your attention to the fact that a 29-year-old Yorkshireman called Marc Pickering is currently playing a young Nucky Thompson in Boardwalk Empire's flashback scenes, and giving the best Steve Buscemi impersonation you're likely to see.

"Have you bloody seen what happens to the king when he's hung about a bit too long?" King Juan Carlos remarked to a servant after smashing two seasons of Game of Thrones in a long weekend. "A sword sandwich without the chorizo, that's what. Fuck that noise, I'm Audi." His son Prince Felipe will succeed him, even though everyone likes his brother the badass dwarf much better.
Game of Thrones fans have criticised the publishers of Wedding
magazine for ruining the latest episode by introducing into their minds the idea that things sometimes happen at weddings.
Something about it being her title not her name, from what I can gather? Mainly in capital letters.
Game of Thrones returns for its fourth season in April and, frankly, I can't wait. Despite this very website placing it a measly 16th in its list of top TV shows last year
, it's easily the best thing on TV. (The list was topped by something called "Breaking Bad
" which, although sounding very interesting, hasn't got dragons or naked fire priestesses in it, so fuck knows how that's meant to be better.)
Must have taken the bloke ages to write. You'd think they could've at least spelled his name correctly.
