series: got commentary

I just listened to the commentary for “The Bear and the Maiden Fair” and what’s really interesting to me is that GRRM speaks up whenever Michelle Maclaren makes an observation about the show which differs from the books or asks a question about a character or event which George then elaborates on if not all of the information is there in the show.

When Michelle Maclaren talks about a potential romance between Jaime and Brienne, George doesn’t say a thing. He goes along with it. I don’t know about you, but I think that’s very interesting.

Game of Thrones season 1 audio commentaries

S1E01 - Winter is Coming; Commentary by David Benioff and D. B. Weiss

David: The fact that these guys are able to act while flexing their abs so severely is really impressive.

Dan: We’ve seen the number of crunches that they did before they shot this. I’m surprised that they didn’t all throw up.

David: They’re not actually breathing during this entire scene. They’re just flexing and yet somehow it works.

*both laugh

Dan: It must’ve been painful *laughs

Alan: I think the audience was very happy to see her [Sansa] show at least some will for revenge there. For however briefly.
David: Were you in the message boards again?
David: Everyone denies looking at them, but you know… I actually don’t.
Alan: But I really don’t.
Dan: You do. When people come in the room and see you looking at them, you turn it off really quickly and turn on the porn.

Game of Thrones season 1 audio commentaries

S1E04 - Cripples, Bastards, and Broken Things; Commentary by Kit Harington and Bryan Cogman


Kit: During this scene, we were obviously meant to be freezing, we’re at the top of the wall, its night. An actual fact, we were in a paint hall inside. And the close up bits which you’re about to see, for lighting we basically had to enclose me in a kind of what they called witches candles, up full flame. So in this I’m absolutely boiling! I was sweating!

Bryan: *laughs

Kit: And so was John there, he was sweating. And we had to keep mopping the sweat away. And sort of at the same time pretending that we were absolutely freezing, it was kind of ridiculous. But it was a good scene to do. It was fun.

Bryan: You’d never know, you look freezing right there. Its written all over your face!

Kit: Jamie Sives who plays Jory looks like a puppet ‘cause he’s got little strings behind him.

Bryan: *laughs

Kit: I’m so sorry about that, but I had to point it out. If you look carefully…

Bryan: Great, that’s all I’ll ever think about now when I watch that scene!

Kit: There we go.

Bryan: *laughs And someday Jory you’ll be a real boy! Just don’t tell lies.
