HBO is pulling that episode off of HBO Go, iTunes etc. and has issued an even stronger statement.

http://www.deadline.com/2012/06/game...from-rotation/

“We were deeply dismayed to see this and find it unacceptable, disrespectful and in very bad taste,” the network said. “We made this clear to the executive producers of the series who apologized immediately for this careless mistake. We condemn it in the strongest possible terms and have halted all future shipments of the DVDs, removed it from our digital platforms and will edit the scene for all future airings on any distribution domestic or international.”

If it hadn't of been mentioned in the DVD commentary, I don't think it would have been noticed.

Well I had held off buying the bluray before now but just ordered it on Amazon before they pull them off the shelves too. Ridiculous!

They better not edit out that scene. Hopefully they just do like a photoshop job in that scene, replacing the head with blue sky or some other face. But yeah, just silly.

For what reason did they have a GWB severed head just lying around?

He was the POTUS, and in this age where beheading one's enemies is still done, it was a fair response to a stupid error. And if it was Clinton's head I would feel the same way. Partisan poutrage is also evidenced in the comments above.

Now let's get back to talking about what a doosh Joffrey is. Great acting IMO - I can't stand the sight of the character after the wolf incident where Arya kicked his ass.

I bought the books on Kindle. After doing a marathon of the first two seasons over less than a fortnight, we're having serious GoT withdrawal. It's a real downside of the technique - happened with Mad Men too, and probably will with Breaking Bad.

For the record I don't think anyone anywhere related to the show says that it actually was a replica of GWB. What happened is that while watching the dailies (or what ever) someone commented that it looked like him. (As others have noted here it looks just as much like other people or characters.) They then mentioned it in the commentary.

There is no reason to believe that it was a GWB head put there intentionally or by mistake. The mistake was mentioning that it looked like him in the commentary. That's just not something you do simply because no matter what your intention is by saying it, someone will take offense. Don't do politics, religion, race etc. That's just an open invitation to trouble.

Even saying "OK someone looked at this and thought that head looked like GWB but it isn't so don't get upset with us because that would be a silly and tasteless thing to do no matter what your political beliefs are..." would just cause problems. So why do it? Because someone didn't think a whole lot about what they were saying when they were sitting there in the umpteenth hours of making inane drivel about a show they had probably seen a dozen times and they just prattled it out.

At least that is what I think happened based on reading the articles and original information about the event.

What if they happened to have a GWB MASK lying around to put a wig on, stuff and bloody up, or went to a costume store and got one that looked like a reasonable facimile of Ned? ...and I wouldn't doubt that they had a few giggles.

Thinking about this talk of "Bush's head", and thinking about GoT politics, it's a good thing that, as bad as RL politics is, the "cutthroat" part is not literal like it is there.

I have a "prediction" that I would like the book readers to confirm about Balish:

Spoiler:
Is he going to take Sansa as a bride, to satisfy his lust for Catelyn, to start having heirs, and remove her from Joffery's reach?

I have finished book three. Some of what you are saying is a yes, other things you are saying look like that is what is going to happen. All I can say for sure is that Sansa's life keeps getting more miserable by the moment.
