I'm dreading having to deal with Dany spending elongated amounts of time with the Dothraki, I'm seemingly the only fan that couldn't case less about them. Uninteresting savages.
They may have been more interesting if there was more of them, as opposed to the rag tag bunch of shiftless nomads they've dwindled down to since Drogo's death. I was actually hoping they'd run into another Khalasar just to see what would happen - would certainly have been more interesting, IMO, than some of her exploits around the 'Bay. Have the dragons incinerate the Khal after watching his bluster and posturing and then >poof< - fricasseed Khal.

Hang on, Mark Gatiss is in season 4?
Why did nobody mention this?

Gatiss' casting was mentioned last week, but you may have missed the discussion among all the political talk around that time.

So who COULD be Gatiss playing? I don't remember any non-martell non-essos character introduced in the second part of book 3, and he doesn't look either.

That's the third actor from Rome so far!

Thought it might have been, but the thread had jumped several pages since I last looked in.

That cake is amazing. I am not sure I would have had the heart to cut it.

The flowers and the gowns were stunning. They didn't use blue roses though. Shame on them!

I quite enjoyed Feast for Crows. I especially enjoyed the glimpses into everyone's psyche in the aftermath of all of the carnage that had happened up to that point. As a reader I tend to enjoy the building blocks of a story more than the pay off.

I also enjoyed large chunks of Dance. However, I felt that slogging through Tyrion's and Dany's chapters became a chore. I found myself frustrated by those two characters especially. I found both of them to be myopic and tiresome.

They should have appeared already, but I believe he's either Mace Tyrell or the Magnar of Thenn.

He was only filming for three days. There's no way they filmed all Mace's parts in three days. They were holding open auditions for the Magnar, so I doubt that's who Gatniss is either.

Given the secrecy, I would guess he's playing Bloodraven. That's a character who would only be appearing briefly and whose appearances could be filmed in a very short space of time.

I'm glad his role is brief, whatever it is. I like his writing and his grotesques in League Of Gentlemen were great fun but I don't think he's a strong or subtle enough actor to play a serious role over a sustained period of time. Even his Mycroft Holmes kept me thinking of his LOG regulars.

After his 2 great Doctor Who episodes this year, the guy could play Arianne Martell for all I care.

Re: A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones Spoiler-Filled Discussion

So this maybe a little bit over the top but I made dinner tonight based on reading Dance with Dragons. I read the chapter with the wedding of Dany and Hizdahr zo Loraq yesterday and at the feast after the wedding they served Lacquered Duck. I was intrigued by this and decided to find a recipe, which I did. She also had figs and nuts that morning, so I made goat cheese rolled in nuts, stuffed in the fig wrapped in bacon.
