Boars, Gore, and Swords: Game of Thrones recap: 4x02:

Boars, Gore, and Swords is hosted by stand-up comedians Ivan Hernandez and Red Scott. In each episode they break down HBO's Game of Thrones and George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire. They also talk about movies, TV, science fiction, fantasy, and lots of other things. NSFW.

Season 4 Episode 2 of HBO’s “Game of Thrones” takes the fourth season to an entirely different level. Ivan and Red are joined by comedian and Business-man Sean Keane to discuss an episode that is certain to be a classic in this realm. We cover the most disturbing tv scene in television history, Joffrey’s dream woman, a refocusing on Bronn’s storyline, the insufficient bastard naming system, Theon going to Barber school, Skyler vs Shae, the lineage of Dragonstone, Joffrey’s wonderfully short wedding ceremony, new Tommen, Ser Loras vs Ser Jaime, Brienne vs Cersei, the indignity of the little person acting troupe, and reams and reams of comeuppance.

  2. Wow, great way to start a podcast, with terrible singing and shouting. Have no idea what the rest of the podcast sounds like, but those first five seconds are so excruciating, I imagine hyperventilating screaming fanboys.

  3. I'm pretty certain it was Sansa that did it. She had more motive than anyone, she had the cup under the table, she could have had the help of Varys.

    Was Littlefinger out of town?

  4. The intro song came from the podcast's first game show edition. It was somewhat spontaneously done. For me, who has been listening since the beginning, this always makes me smile. Don Preston, though, makes the best intro songs. Try to catch those as well. You can listen to the intros original incarnation here:
