A new teaser...

So, is this Lord of The Rings Fantasy (magic, fantastic creatures, etc) or Pillars of the Earth Fantasy (historical fiction)?

The former, but with a major dose of the latter — there's a major downplay on all things fantastical, and the book series focuses mostly on the political intrigue and military clashing between various (human) kingdoms.

What Jason said. And that's why I like it so much. There's talk of magic, dragons, and other fantastical things, but they (mostly) exist on the series' periphery, adding a nice amount of exoticism to the political and personal intrigue that forms the series' core. However, I have a feeling that the series' magic quotient is going to increase a bit as it nears its end and we find out more about the Others, the true nature of Westeros' seasons, etc.

Very cool little teaser. A bit more surreal and abstract than the others, but does a good job of capturing the tone methinks.

Here's a link to Fairley's page on the Game of Thrones wiki.

Slight nitpick: she only played Hermione's mom in Deathly Hallows (both parts, admittedly, but still).

Hermione's mom was played by Heather Bleasdale in Chamber of Secrets.

Now blogging at Patheos.com. I can also still be found at Facebook, Twitter and Flickr. See also my film journal.

Yet another new teaser/trailer. This just keeps looking better and better.

We should do an A&F live chat when this comes out, though I imagine it would be largely silent until the credits.

Shoot... I'm still trying to find someone whose HBO I can borrow. (We don't have cable TV.)

Does HBO stream episodes of their series online?
