An English village named Kings Langley plans to change its name to Kings Landing - the name of the main fictional city in HBO's popular series, Game of Thrones. The change will occur for the first week of the show's season 3 DVD release.

The planned change came to fruition when one of the show's producers heard Kings Langley was a stop along the route of a train he was on. After talking with village officials about the possibility of them temporarily changing the area's name starting February 17th, they agreed with the hope that local business owners will get on board to encourage a growth in tourism.

With more than 4.2 million downloads per episode, Game of Thrones was the most pirated television show of 2012. However, less than 24 hours after the HBO epic fantasy show's third season premiere, TorrentFreak reported the episode had already been downloaded more than a million times, with one torrent having more than 160,000 simultaneous connections. No torrent has had that many connections since September 23rd, 2008, when more than 144,000 people downloaded the third season premiere of Heroes at once.

TorrentFreak also broke down the locations of the pirates, finding that Australia had the highest piracy rate while London had the highest concentration of pirates amongst major cities. Despite the massive amounts of downloads, the television premiere saw 6.7 million US viewers, despite airing against The Walking Dead's season finale.

A little attention to detail by a Game of Thrones fan has caused quite the uproar -- Redditor SidIncognito was listening to the DVD commentary for a scene in episode 10 when he heard show creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss explain one of the heads on a spike:

The last head on the left is George Bush. George Bush's head appears in a couple of beheading scenes. It's not a choice, it's not a political statement. We just had to use whatever head we had around.

Once word got out Wednesday on Reddit, HBO immediately apologized:

We were deeply dismayed to see this and find it unacceptable, disrespectful and in very bad taste. We made this clear to the executive producers of the series who apologized immediately for this inadvertent careless mistake. We are sorry this happened and will have it removed from any future DVD production.

Benioff and Weiss chimed in with an explainer:

What happened was this: we use a lot of prosthetic body parts on the show: heads, arms, etc. We can't afford to have these all made from scratch, especially in scenes where we need a lot of them, so we rent them in bulk. After the scene was already shot, someone pointed out that one of the heads looked like George W. Bush. In the DVD commentary, we mentioned this, though we should not have. We meant no disrespect to the former President and apologize if anything we said or did suggested otherwise.
