    Finally seeing Sophie and Maisie on a panel will be great. Man, it would be amazing if Comic-Con could manage to livestream it’s panels. It’s always a bit worrying hoping that someone managed to record it at decent quality to put on YouTube.

    I always confuse Rob McEllhenney and Ian McElhinney. Which one is Gandalf?

    Usually I don’t watch these things but with Rob McElhenney this could be a lot of fun.

    GRRM can spare a day of book writing to attend this. People need to stop breathing down his kneck. He’s already released multiple chapters of the winds of winter so the book is on its way and I expect it in early 2015 around the time season 5 starts

    Richard Madden should be part of this panel… and most of the other press events for Season 3! This is his last goodbye afterall….

    Hmmm… now I’m in the mood for some Jeff Buckley.

    And here’s our first DVD special feature for Season III.

    I hope Mac spends the entire panel trying to hook up with Cersei.

    Yes, you can watch the live-stream at what every time is appropriate to where you live (convert from 10:00 pm EST) or watch it later on YouTube if someone was kind enough to record it!

    The live-stream is on at 2:30 AM in the UK so I’ll have to do the latter :(

    good news, but better would have been that it’s a book release party for Winds of Winter.

    In unrelated news, looks like Mackenzie Crook’s Orell might not be around for long? http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/ustv/news/a463648/mackenzie-crook-lands-role-in-jj-abrams-tv-sci-fi-drama.html

    Stan Marsh,

    The original advertisement for thishttp://fuckyeahkitharington.tumblr.com/ (scroll down) had Richard Madden listed. Not sure what happened and why he can no longer make it :(

    I think Mac would be more interested in Jaime.

    The Emmy Panel recognition is quite an honor, I agree. That this will be streamed
    online is fantastic for anyone interested in the production. WiC is correct, San
    Diego Comic Con had better take note *>*

    Now I want them to shoot a GOT-themed episode of ‘Sunny’ (like their ‘Liberty Bell’ episode. Charlie as Joffrey, and the waitress as Sansa.)

    Why? Most people expected him to be Jon’s antagonist this year and would die in place of the Magnar.

    Looks like no kings will be there…maybe avoiding spoilers? Still, should be a cool panel for all to enjoy in anticipation of a new season. Huzzah!

    My brain just exploded. Its Always Sunny and GoT are the greatest shows ever. Ronald McDonald and the Starks together on the same stage!

    I hope Rob will showcase some of those top notch fighting skills for the Westerosi folks.

    Awesome! Mac is moderating a GOT panel. I remember Kit Harington saying something about meeting some of the guys from It’s Always Sunny in a bar and them telling him they are fans. Rob must be a pretty big fan though if he is hosting the panel.

    The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences is not better known as the Emmys. The Emmys are the wards that the Academy hands out, or the ceremony that they hold to give out the awards. The Academy is an organization, not an award.

    Mac should start out the panel as if he thinks they are the cast from “one of those rings movies.” And we need a Green Man sighting.
