So I've made the poor life choice of spending most of my Sunday messing around writing a Markov chain generator and feeding it AGOT. While still somewhat crude, it spit out this nugget:

Syrio's stick came whistling up and rang against his helm. "I am Syrio Forel, and you will name your child after me." Dany smiled. "My son has his name, but I will if I have to, we'll see how you feel." Jon trembled. "I will never father a bastard," he said carefully.

It honors all characters and provides satisfying closure, I'm done with the series now.

I hope one of them is a mocumentary cooking show about trying to find the baker with the best lemon cake recipe. Like where the characters talk to the camera and stuff like in The Office, but they're in Westeros.

Most likely, only one of them will get made. They won't actually make all of them (probably), they just ordered scripts and outlines for the six concepts.

Dotrice was an old british guy, right? That would at least explain it. He probably grew up looking at literal maps of the British empire owning much of the world and asia was labeled 'The Orient'.

It's really just bizarre to give missandei a really strong and comical accent given that she's described as a child prodigy and someone who is fluent in eleven languages.

It reminds me of the bizarre dialogue in the show when she asks Jon to explain bastardry to her, like of all characters she's just about the last one who would not know what such a common word means.

Yes, which makes it very comical when she scalds Jaime for calling her wench and says "my name is BRY-EEN".

You'd think he could have probably asked GRRM how to pronounce those names?

Oh and he also reads Aeron Damp-hair as Aeron Damfair but apparently half the reader base didn't get it either.

A few names are not fantasy flavored mundane names and Cersei is one of them. Cersei is pretty clearly a reference to Circe, the witch from the Odyssey that turns men into pigs.
