Screw this. There is no "Game of Thrones season 2".

It's either "A Song of Ice and Fire season 2" or "A Clash of Kings".

The TV show is in fact called Game of Thrones.

Feels so good to be back in this world again. I do ask that you kind gentlemen use spoiler codes for anything book related no matter how small. I'm terrified to enter any discussion anywhere else about this show.

I don't know - it's sort of all about that Throne, is it not.
Like a giant game...for the throne. A...game of thrones, if you will.




Anyways - good episode. Great episode.

One of my favourite parts was when Bran was out with _____, and ______ (I didn't read the books, so I'm bad with minor-character names), and there is the red comet above them, and Bran says what he anecdotally thinks it is, and the chick is all "Phfff, that's so preposterous. Some people also think it means Lannister Red. Your stable boys think it means blood. You're all stupid and illogical. What it really is, is Dragons."

Calling the series Game of Thrones and not renaming each season to match the books makes perfect sense and would actually be completely asinine to change the name of what will be an established brand. Also the entire series of books up until the most recent 5th book is all about, quite literally, a game of thrones, and the term is really a metaphor for life in general, as well.

And the phrase "Game of Thrones is used a few times in each book.

And I guess A Song of Ice and Fire is too kiddy for the tough guys who think they know the universe.

Has nothing to do with being kiddy, it's just an overly long and hard to remember (is "Ice" before or after "Fire")? And doesn't say anything at all about what the show is about.

Also using the phrase "a song" is more applicable to the written word than it is to film, in my opinion.

And yet the Ice and Fire theme grows in each book, while the Game of Thrones grows less and less important. You can already see that in book 3 (which is the last one I read).

To be fair Angrist, you're on book 3 of 7 - and you're saying:

You're not even halfway through the Universe.

It's called BRANDING, people; creating a recognizable brand name that people can hang their hat on and HBO can further monetize through licensing and merchandizing.
