The North Remembers: January 2012

Raven LogoWe have turned a new leaf, entered a new year, and so – of course – has our series of posts visiting the past. Today we remember the events from January 2012.

  • First of all, please give a round of applause to Sue! She has been with us for three full years, and is now the driving force behind Watchers on the Wall.
  • After the Emmy, Peter Dinklage won a Golden Globe as well.
  • Speaking of awards, the stunt team won their first SAG award, starting their uninterrupted run.
  • HBO released this In Production video featuring Croatia, while this report gave us a low-down on the Icelandic shoot.
  • We were treated to this art direction video, and a look at how Renly’s armour was made as well.
  • The biggest video of the all, however, was the S2 trailer in line with the now customary January release.
  • We learned that S2 was going to premiere on April 1st. No joke.
  • In an interview (last third of it), Nonso Anozie (Daxos) commented on his appearance on the show and the expanded Qarth storyline.
  • The first two episode titles leaked: “The North Remembers” (hell yeah), and “Nightlands”.
  • Game of Thrones has become the 3rd most watched show in HBO history already before S2. By now, of course, it has taken first place and firmly established the lead.

    1. It’s funny that in the trailer HBO puts “04.12.2015”
      and now I see EVERYONE in Facebook complaining
      because they think there’s not going to be GoT until 4th December 2015

    2. Yay, Sue! Thanks so much for all your hard work!

      The North Remembers’ timeclock has reached the birth of my participation in the fandom. Well, I think it was around November 2011, but yeah. I finally caved in and checked out “that one show” my friend “wouldn’t shut up about”, and… the rest is history. Marathoning the first season took place in a single day, then the next day I showed it to my girlfriend, who did the same.

      Fans were coming.

    3. Okay I am really confused…

      Are you folks the old winteriscoming crew?

      The way I found out about this site is from someone posting about it on WiC and since then I never went back.

      This is a true fansite, that other site turned into a corporate advertisement pit.

    4. Sue the Fury,

      Wow…

      That’s very interesting, thanks for posting the link.

      Well, I am glad you guys formed this site. A true fansite that’s sole purpose is to give fans of GoT a place to gather and share their excitement and thoughts on all things GoT.

      Hope you guys let BCog and others who used to come give little interviews a headsup and we will get more of them on this site in the future?

      I am sure they all would appreciate the authenticity of this site vs what happened to the old one.

    5. Congrats Sue!!! It honestly feels like I’ve read your articles for more years than the ones I’ve been lurking. Good job and here’s to more!

    6. Jeff O’Connor,

      Yeah… I already gave up on the old site because I use my phone a lot when I am at work and all those advertisements and popup bait clicks made it unreasonable to even attempt to visit it anymore.

      I am just glad I found this site (again) so I have someplace to go and vent my nerdgasmic feelings about GoT, Vikings, Macro Polo, Black Sails and anything else I think is GoT subject related.

      Be it about actors like Natalie Dormer maybe playing Captain Marvel or Sophia Turner getting the Jean Grey role… To me, all that stuff is GoT related in a sense.

    7. Arthur,

      Hear, hear. I actually use my phone to access the net 99.9% of the time; I don’t have a computer at my dorm, so yeah. WiC was becoming more than an alien ghost town… it was becoming impossible for me to navigate.

    8. The first two episode titles leaked: “The North Remembers” (hell yeah), and “Nightlands”.

      I always thought that they used that episode title (The North Remembers) too early in the series. Hopefully, that phrase will be much more relevant in the coming seasons.

    9. Hear Marko Roar:
      Fedejru,

      Haha, didn’t notice. Go Europe!

      Not just Europe. It scared me too. In fact of the world uses either DD MM YYYY or YYYY MM DD (big to small or small to big). According to (the very reliable) wikipedia the only countries to use MM DD YYYY (smallest unit in the middle) as standard are USA, Belize and Micronesia. A select few countries (Canada, Kenya and Philippines) use it in certain circumstances too but also use more standard date formats. The rest of us just get confused.

    10. Hear Marko Roar,

      I’m not in Europe.. I’m in South America ,
      but still, I think USA is the only country that writes the date backwards,
      so that will cause confusion all over the rest of the world .. jaja

    11. Sue the Fury,

      It really does. In my mind you are port of the staff for at least 4 month longer. Put up the great work!

      Arthur,

      Welcome, Arthur. 🙂 Always good to see old faces here. – Not that I actually see your face, but you get the point…

    12. Thanks to everyone that said hi!

      And hello to all you as well, feels like I just ran into a bunch of old friends!

      I love the passionate arguments and agreements I’ve had with this cummunity over the years and can’t wait to either take your side or go against you again in the near arriving future when we start getting into season 5…

    13. Of the Night: Not just Europe. It scared me too. In fact of the world uses either DD MM YYYY or YYYY MM DD (big to small or small to big).

A select few countries (Canada, Kenya and Philippines) use it in certain circumstances too but also use more standard date formats. The rest of us just get confused.

      I live in the US, but I usually use YYYY-MM-DD format for several reasons:
      1) It makes the most sense to have the most significant digits to the left, like a normal number.
      2) Using it as a file name on a computer will sort in the correct order.
      3) It’s the least likely to confuse anyone.
      4) DD MM YYYY seems backward to me (and would probably confuse many of my fellow americans, paricularly when DD is 12 or less), while MM DD YYYY just seems randomly scrambled.

    14. Casso,

      YYYY MM DD seems as backwards to me as DD MM YYYY does to you, but I do concur that it is the most logical and applaud your efforts at making things more practical. I generally prefer to do the month in 3 letters and make sure to include all four digits for the year so it cannot be confused regardless of order. Can’t stand it when people use two digit years then you get dates like 10-11-12 which could mean so many things.
