LG&M podcast: Game of Thrones, Season 4, Episode 1: “Two Swords”


Watch the podcast below, whenever YouTube starts behaving, which should be an hour after I post this, if last night is any indication:

Listen to it here.

As per the post below, you can read my re-cap of it, if you’d like.

Steven’s written two pieces at some little outlet called Esquire, which are available here and here.

A link to his book will be available in this post tomorrow morning, once Amazon gets its shit together. right now, actually.

(Also, we’ll resume Season One podcasts as soon as YouTube begins cooperating. We apologize for the delay.)

    Daario Naharis, WTF?

    • David Hunt

      He was re-cast between season. They re-cast the Mountain, too.

      • David Hunt

        “seasons” not “season.” Arrgh

      • Specifically because the guy who played him in Season 3 decided to go be in the Transporter movies instead.

      • Murc

        They re-cast the Mountain, too.

        Wait, what? Aww.

        I was really, really looking forward to him dying. Well, to him getting gut-stabbed, anyway. It just won’t be the same with some other actor.

        Oh well. We still get to watch Joffrey choke to death on camera.

        (Incidentally, may I say that Jack Gleeson continues to own it?)

        • The Mountain got re-cast in Season 2.

          Then they recast him again for Season 4.

          You are going to love the new Mountain – he’s an Icelandic weightlifting champ named Hafthor Bjornson (literally “Thor son of the Bear”), he’s 6’9″ and weights 419 pounds.

          • The prophet Nostradumbass

            Has he been on “World’s Strongest Man”? Half of them seem to be from Iceland.

            • I believe he took third at one of those. He’s won Strongest Man in Iceland a couple times.

          • Barry Freed

            The Mountain was not a much of a speaking role at all before so that hardly matters. But this Daario just isn’t anything like the other one in looks or manner and his brazen manner, roguish charm and outlandishness was a large part of his character. I think you nailed it with the goatherder remark.He could have been a wildling.

        • Medicine Man

          I actually really admire Jack Gleeson’s performance as Joffrey. It would be so easy to go over the top when playing a character like that but Gleeson him like a vicious bully enabled by good fortune – no more, no less. Gleeson’s Joffrey comes across as a plausible, recognizable person and is all the more terrible as a result.

  • Gregor Sansa

    Seemed like mostly a housekeeping episode to me. Yes, Jaime’s situation moved along, but pretty much in the way anyone could have guessed; and as for the rest of them, the only new thing were the new faces.

    • Barry Freed

      I largely agree that it was housekeeping but Arya also moved further along her path toward becoming a Faceless Man.

      I liked the ambiguity in the title: Two swords could be read as the two swords that were reforged from Ice in the intro before the credits or Ice and Needle as book-ends to the episode.

      • ender

        or the two swords that darrio and gray worm were holding. or tyrion and jaimie not gettign any in the episode. or ice and needle?

      • Precisely.

  • The e-book, it is up.

  • wengler

    Unsurprisingly, it looks like The Hound is going to stick around longer than in the book.

    • agorabum

      Don’t be so sure…
      In a land without penicillin, it doesn’t take much. Looks like he may have been nicked…

  • Uncle Ebeneezer

    Why are the podcasts no longer available through i-tunes? (asking for a wife)

    • There’s ongoing technical issues that people are working on.

      • Uncle Ebeneezer

        Ok thanks. Great discussion btw. And congrats on the book!

  • Joseph Nobles

    The Queen of Thorns was very unhappy with necklace choices for Margaery. Perhaps she will be more impressed with Dontas’ taste.

    • /wink.

      Yeah, D&D don’t put random stuff in for no reason.

      • Joseph Nobles

        Also, I just realized something reading a post over at Booman’s joint: it would have been interesting to see Ramsey invent waterboarding for Theon’s benefit after discussing the Ironborn religion. In fact, that might have made a more chilling scene than the (to me) ludicrous sausage dinner.
