You Know Nothing Unless You Take This Awesome Game Of Thrones Class!

Filed under: BookzSchoolGame Of ThronesGIFs

game of thrones course university of virginia

If only this class were available to the Jon Snow, then Ygritte wouldn't rub his cluelessness in his face so much! HA!

But then, maybe the show wouldn't have earned as many Emmy nods as it did!

So now, not only can you watch Game of Thrones on HBO, but now you can actually STUDY it thanks to the class being offered at the University of Virginia!

(Looks like someone's taking advice from the professor who created the Miley Cyrus sociology course!)

But, wait, GoT is based on a book series, what's the big deal that there's a college course on it?

Well, Lisa Woolfork, the professor of the summer class at UVA, explains that it's much MORE than just a silly old English class.

In fact, she's teaching the books along with the HBO episodes and proving that the series doesn't "ruin" the books, but they enhance the reading experience!

She said:

'One of the goals behind this class was to teach students how the skills that we use to study literature are very useful skills for reading literature and TV in conjunction. Game of Thrones is popular, it’s interesting, but it’s also very serious. There are a lot of things in the series that are very weighty, and very meaningful, and can be illuminated through the skills of literary analysis'

It’s so literary – how in-depth it is, how robust it is, how much there is to discuss about it. But we’re also very concerned about the pop culture aspects, how we as viewers receive Game of Thrones. I think it’s important to apply the same principles we do with literature to television and film…'

WHOA! How exciting does THAT sound!

We wonder what the next pop culture-induced college class will be?

The Avengers differences in comic books and movies? Taylor Swift's influence on the music industry?

So many options!

Game Of Thrones isn't just about dungeons and dragons; it's about intrigue!

And one of the biggest mysteries on the show AND in the books is the question of WHO IS JON SNOW'S MOTHER??

While we'd all like to bounce Kit Harington on our laps, there's only one answer to the mystery of the missing mommy.

BUT… could his father be a mystery too??

game of thrones dorne spain too many extras 10000 apply

When you play the Game Of Thrones, you win or you die. Or sometimes you have 9,900 people more than you need!

The HBO megahit is filming in a brand new country this year, and although Dorne may be filled with people with no interest in the iron throne, Spain is another story!

When Spanish casting company Fresco Film Services put out a casting call for extras, less than 24 hours later the company had received a whopping 10,000 responses from GoT fans!

Maybe they shouldn't have mentioned what show they would be working on…

The company posted on their Facebook page that they were overwhelmed but would try to reply to all the solicitations as quickly as possible.

We say take everyone and film the biggest battle scene of all time! Or love scene. Either way.

Game Of Thrones Author George R.R. Martin Says 'F**k You' To Fans Who Ask Him THIS!

Filed under: BookzGame Of Thrones

game of thrones author george rr martin says eff you fans offensive question

Game Of Thrones has enthralled millions of TV viewers since its debut, and brought a lot of new readers to the books.

But there's a little snag- the novel series is a LOT slower than the TV show. The most recent installment of A Song Of Ice And Fire took five years to complete, and it's been three years since that one.

The long waits have some fans speculating that author George R.R. Martin won't even survive long enough to finish the planned heptalogy (that's like a trilogy but with 7 books- we totes had to look it up!).

Well, George himself has finally reacted to these morbid naysayers. And it's as harsh (and NSFW) as a Westeros wedding! He says:

We are just SHOCKED by some of the names left off of this year’s Emmy nominations!

We woke up early this morning along with everyone else in Hollywood to hear who would have a chance at winning the winged lady.

There were the usual suspects, of course, who have taken TV’s top prize before but we were sincerely surprised by who got SNUBBED this year!

How could voters forget about the guy who WON the Golden Globe for Best Lead Actor in Comedy this year??

Or the top-rated drama that scored more than 15 million viewers this season??

And don’t even get us started on some of the younger faces that got ignored today!

Blugh!

Ch-ch-check out who didn’t get a call from their agent this morning!
