Splitsider // Why Arrested Development and Game of Thrones Are Perfect Together / Emily Hummel, the creator of Arrested Westeros has, whether she realized it or not, hit on a fundamental truth about comedy here…Arrested quotes [are] funnier when you put them in context, but we didn’t realize just how dark and twisted that context was. In showcasing that darkness, Arrested Westeros takes something impossibly funny and somehow makes it even funnier. I can’t wait to see what hilarious revelations Season 2 brings.
The A.V. Club (and a second time!) // Honestly, if those people who run the Game Of Thrones/Arrested Development mash-up site don’t caption every screencap of Sansa from that scene where she’s watching Joffrey punish the would-be jester with “I’ve made a huge mistake,” they are FALLING DOWN ON THE JOB. / By the way, if you haven’t checked out Arrested Westeros yet, you really should.

The quotes match up so well, and the scenes are chosen so expertly, I can’t remember seeing a better mash-up. [and more recently: Another Round of Greatness from Arrested Westeros]
Cinema Blend // Sure, it’s too early just one season in to proclaim that Game of Thrones is of the caliber of an Arrested (or even The Wire) but the good people over at Arrested Westeros decided to combine them anyway. Yes, another meme factory but this one I like (and I don’t like many).
