    Is the unaired pilot available anywhere?

    Juego de tronos,

    Nope. And it likely never will be …

    Thinking of that, there aren’t many unaired pilots that get released.

    I remember seeing a scene from True Blood’s pilot where Tara was played by a different actress. I think Joss Whedon put the Buffy pilot on DVD set, just for the lulz, because it was truly horrible. There’s a part of a pilot for US version of IT Crowd which, thankfully, didn’t get past the pilot stage (it’s on Youtube, if you want to witness the horror of a remake no one needed). Other than that, I can’t think of anything …

    Usually, those things get redone for a good reason.

    P.S. Oh, and a pilot for Dwight-centric The Office spin-off was recently redone as an episode of the show. It also was quite awful.

    Alex Dubrovsky,

    Just wanted to add, and I’m going old-school here, that Full House has a released unaired pilot. The character they replaced was Danny Tanner…can you imagine a world where we didn’t know Bob Saget?

    Hah! That’s awesome. Man – looking back, I can’t even imagine anyone else playing Dany.

    I LOVE Emelia Clarke and I’m so happy they chose her. She’s been amazing and so far from what I’ve seen in the trialers for this season, she’ll continue to impress.

    I shudder when I think of that wandering-eye, big-headed Tamzin Merchant playing Dany.

    I love these posts, very nostalgic, it was all so exciting to see unfold! I’ve been lurking around since before the bottom needed supporting, haha.

    I had been curious about who was Lady Stark in the pilot…Jennifer Ehle! I lost count of how often I watched Pride and Prejudice…it must have been quite a blow to lose her. Michelle Fairley has met the challenge. Her passionate nature on screen has been a marked contrast from Lena Headey’s Lannister ice queen. They are perfect rivals. Wow. Ehle missed a great opportunity!

    Hello! I realize this is somewhat off-topic but I had to ask.
    Does building a well-established blog such as yours require a
    lot of work? I am brand new to operating a blog but I do write in
    my diary on a daily basis. I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my own experience and thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners. Thankyou!
