Winter is coming – and with it comes the season two premiere of “Game of Thrones,” just days away! And you know what that means: incest, murder, and wolves! Being lucky enough to get an early sneak peek at the first episode of season two, our “Talk Nerdy” experts are devoting this week’s entire episode to discuss the series as we move farther into Westeros. What can we expect from season two? How faithful is the show staying to the books? Find all of these questions out and more by checking out the video:

Stop whatever you're doing right now, because we've got the best video you're going to watch on the Internet all day. Kermit the Frog and Walter recently stopped by the MTV News office to promote the upcoming DVD release of "The Muppets," and they were kind enough to sit down with us for the latest edition of Talk Nerdy.
Yes, it is as amazing as it sounds. The pair talk "The Avengers," "The Hunger Games," "Twilight" and plenty of "The Muppets" with MTV Movies Blog editor and resident nerd Josh Wigler. Walter points out that Disney could have saved an awful lot of money on "The Avengers" by just casting Kermit as the Hulk and himself as Captain America, and we've got to admit, we agree (sorry Mark Ruffalo and Chris Evans, you're great too).
And we agree one hundred percent with Walter when he said, "I think that's the problem with a lot of movies, is they need more Muppets. That's my motto." Could you even imagine?
"The Avengers" trailer is hero of the week in the eyes of our fellow bloggers at MTV Splash Page, and we can't say we disagree. After a predictable (and mediocre) Oscars last Sunday, the movies community needed a pick-me-up in a big way. Cue Joss Whedon and Earth's Mightiest Heroes, who brought us earth's mightiest trailer to awaken our senses.
From Hulk and Iron Man's tender moment to the massive dragon-like menace lurking about at the end, we rounded up all of our thoughts on the "Avengers" trailer in the video below. Check it all out in this week's Talk Nerdy.
The Oscars might be the biggest night of the year in Hollywood, but it'll lack a whole lot of magic thanks to the Academy's regrettable decision to to snub "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2." The conclusion to the "Potter" saga was more than deserving of a Best Picture nomination at the very least, if not a full-scale win. So, in our small way of compensating, we honored the fallen "Potter" film (as well as a bunch of 2011's other nerd-friendly movies) in this week's edition of Talk Nerdy. Check it out in the video below!
Michael Bay is back for "Transformers 4." Depending on your position, this is either a very good thing or a very bad thing — or, if you're a bit more zen, it really doesn't matter much at all. Bay's return to "Transformers" was a big topic on this week's Talk Nerdy, but there's more to discuss as well: "Amazing Spider-Man" seems to finally be heating up with fans after a killer trailer and an impending viral game. See what Team Nerdy thinks in the video below, plus get their take on "Ghost Rider" versus "This Means War" at the weekend box office.

Trailers, trailers and more trailers — that's the theme of the week in movie land, it seems, and also the main focus on the newest episode of Talk Nerdy!
This week, we're joined by MTV News' hip hop senior writer Rob Markman as we dive into the "Bourne Legacy" trailer, the "Amazing Spider-Man" trailer and even assemble "The Avengers" for a spell. Plus, what's new in theaters this weekend? Lots and lots, including "Safe House," "Journey 2" and a movie that's bound to score points with your date of choice... and no, that movie probably isn't "The Phantom Menace 3D." Get the rundown on all of that and more in this week's Talk Nerdy, viewable in the player below.
It's been a big week in nerd news. "Watchmen" prequels are officially on the way in the form of "Before Watchmen," seven interconnected comic book miniseries that chronicle Rorschach and pals before their fateful encounter in the Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons graphic novel. Speaking of chronicles, Josh Trank's found-footage superhero flick "Chronicle" is out in theaters this week, and it's awesome. But it's got stiff competition in the form of Dan Radcliffe's big-screen comeback and a whale of a drama. Get more on that, plus some talk about Spidey's canceled "Avengers" cameo, in this week's Talk Nerdy!
