Season the Second of “A Game of Thrones” hit DVDs and BluRays in the last couple of days. Judging by people passing out of the vapors on Facebook, someplace had the set ludicrously cheap ($30, I heard). I could try to find out where, but I’ll leave that as an activity to readers. That’s right, this trade news post comes with homework.
As such DVD sets are wont to do these days, they include a number of deleted scenes from the season. Naturally, they then released the scenes on YouTube, thus making me more likely to buy the DVDs by some logic that I cannot quite follow.
First up is non-auto non-erotic asphyxiation:
I love the “VFX Add 3 Dragons” note. Like, they didn’t have a notepad, so they wrote the todo note on the film itself. I’m going to start carrying around a sign that says “VFX Add 3 Dragons” just in case the technique actually works.
And now Margaery and Loras:
Needs more Swearengen.
Ah, I love the softer side of Tyrion.
Those guys unrolling the carpets? They should go work in Downton, they’d probably live longer.
