Game of Thrones Characters Become Slightly Less Murderous in Arrested Development, Mad Men, and Seinfeld

“Now the story of seven kingdoms that lost their King, and the one seven or so contenders for the throne who had no choice but to kill all their rivals keep them all together.”

Artist Kyle Hilton‘s mashups of Game of Thrones with Mad Men and Seinfeld are after the jump.

Game of Thrones As A Comedy Works Remarkably Well [VIDEO]

Who knew adding a laugh track (ala Seinfeld) to some really emotionally heavy scenes from HBO’s Game of Thrones would work? Matin Comedy, apparently. While only a select few scenes are chosen for this video, something tells me a lot are in for a good laugh.

Phil Morris, Star Of Justice League: Doom, Talks Being A Geek, & Future Comic Adaptations

Phil Morris has played a Jem’Hadar, a Martian, and a lawyer. Quite the interesting combination. Yes, you’ve seen him in several Star Trek incarnations, but most fans either know him as John Jones (Martian Manhunter) from Smallville or Jackie Chiles, the fast-talking lawyer from Seinfeld. But the actor has a lengthy voice acting career under his belt as well and most recently took on the role of immortal Vandal Savage in the Warner Home Video release, Justice League: Doom, in stores today. The Mary Sue recently got a chance to speak with Morris about the role, his career as a whole, and his huge comic book collection.

10 Made-Up Holidays That Are Totally Not Christmas

So the network says you have to have a Christmas special, even though your characters live in a science fiction universe where Christianity has never existed. Or they’re living in a year with A.D. in front of it. Or they’re rabbits.

What to do? Why, make up a completely Not-Christmas Yuletide holiday, and tell your viewers to say the Mantra.

This Power Grid originally ran last year on Geekosystem, and now it’s contributing to us having a happy holiday! Enjoy!

Imagine the Amazing Potential of Seinfeld and Social Media

Ahhhh, remember Seinfeld? If you can’t it’s probably on TV right now. But in case you’re not near a TV, think back to Seinfeld‘s heyday, when phones and computers looked … like they do in the picture above. Some very smart people over at C-Section Comics were wondering what Seinfeld would have been like had there been all the social media and technology that we have today. What happened next was a series of comics that really make us wonder what could have been. Or what could have been perfect, because, seriously — what better show to talk about social media than the show that was about nothing?

Character Actress Frances Bay Dies At 92. She Could “Swear Like a Fishwife.”

Frances Bay, whose career spanned decades and didn’t even start until she was in her 50s, passed away this past Thursday at the age of 92. Born in 1919 in Mannville, Alberta, Canada, she scored her first film in 1978 — Foul Play — and went on to appear in several popular TV shows and films including Happy Days, Seinfeld, and Happy Gilmore, in which she was memorably threatened by a mustachioed Ben Stiller.
