There’s been a ton of Game of Thrones content appearing this week and I know it can get overwhelming, but I really suggest fans take the time to watch this featurette “Inside the Wildlings,” about the construction of the civilization beyond the wall. It features George R.R. Martin, the cast, the producers, and key people like the costume, hair, and weapons supervisors shedding some light on key aspects of the wildlings, and the way they tie the larger plot elements in to minute, careful decisions about clothes, structures, and more is really fascinating.

As we edge closer to the season three premiere of Game of Thrones on March 31st, we’ve got a bunch more links to catch up with – including a bunch of coverage from the season three premiere event. As I said in the previous post in this series, this show gets so much ink that I can’t possibly track it all down, so feel free to throw additional links in the comments! By the way, I’m reading A Storm of Swords right now, so I’ll be better-informed by next week.
