Yep, that’s Dubya!
Two Game of Thrones creators have apologized for a scene in the show’s first season that show’s the head of former U.S. president George W. Bush on a stake. “It’s not a choice, it’s not a political statement,” they said. “We just had to use whatever head we had around.”

Growing old with Game of Thrones
When I started reading A Game of Thrones, the first novel in George R.R. Martin’s epic, big-book Song of Ice and Fire fantasy series, my favourite character was the 14-year-old Jon Snow. I liked his pluck, and I thought ultimately he would turn out to be the hero of the whole thing. The note inside the dust jacket said that the next book in the trilogy would be out next year. It was early 1997. I was 16.

Extremely Bad Advice: Adapt or CryDear Steve, My friends keep getting mad when movie adaptations aren’t the same as the book. They propose the movie should say ‘inspired by’ the book instead of using the book’s name. I think they should figure out that it’s impossible to keep what they think is the essential part of the book since we’re all different people and movies are as similar to books as game shows are to political debates. Who’s totally wrong?STEP ONE So let me get this straight. Your friends would be satisfied if, say, Game of Thrones was instead called Throne Games: Inspired by Game of Thrones? Somehow, I doubt it, chum. Should there be a board set up to review the changes from page to screen and give it a rating system? From “NB: nothing to do with the book” to “EL: every single #$@%ing line is on the screen. Happy, nerd?”
