Game of Thrones is not known for its comedy, but as anyone who has ever bought a DVD or Blu-Ray of their favorite television show knows, the blooper reel is the best part, and always funny. I’m pretty sure it’s the only extra feature I ever watch. HBO has released a blooper reel in conjunction with the Game of Thrones Season 4 Blu-ray release, and it does not disappoint.
Watch the video here below.
There are a bunch of “line, line, line?” bits, and much stumbling, complete with ad-lib cursing. Someone must check the steps of the Eyrie and Kings Landing, or there will definitely be a lawsuit that I think the Bank of Westeros will not cover. And who cued the cat? Although the cat did interrupt that creepy Margaery Tyrell and Tommen Baratheon (Natalie Dormer and Dean-Charles Chapman) scene. It is quite refreshing to see Joffrey Baratheon (Jack Gleason) crack a smile and not be such an annoying little nub.
As in the scenes during the actual season, the flubs involving Pedro Pascal (Oberyn Martell), and of course, the real brotherly camaraderie of Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Peter Dinklage (Jaime and Tyrion Lannister) are the most fun. Even the Khaleesi (Emilia Clarke) posse, usually the draggiest bunch, have a bit of fun. It’s also very nice to see Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) show some happiness.
This month will probably be chock full of teasers in anticipation of the next bloody season. Stay tuned right here for all that.
Game of Thrones Season 5 airs April 12th on HBO. Be sure to check out the Season 5 trailer as well as the poster and images as well.
