Recently Time Warner offered its customers the opportunity to take a tour through one of their studios called the “Time Warner Cable Studios Tour Experience”. There were several shows that the tour featured, but it was headlined by the Game of Thrones exhibition which HBO is currently touring. Most of the Time Warner tour was just ok, and kind of interesting, but the Game of Thrones exhibit made it worth my while.
The Game of Thrones exhibit featured several props used in the show. My favorite prop there had to be Jamie’s severed hand. It surprisingly looked faker then I thought it would. I guess they never really get too close to it in the series, or perhaps they have different hands pending on what they need to be used for? There were several costume pieces that were roped off, and grouped together nicely. At the end of the tour you were given the opportunity to take a picture on the Iron Throne. It’s just as uncomfortable as described. My one regret is that I wasn’t wearing something to make me look more badass as I sat upon the throne.
