They talked for about an hour, George liked their vision for the show, then he asked them who Jon Snows mother was, which was his litmus test to see if they were actually observant fans, they said Lyanna Stark and they got the job.
Hold on, that was their litmus test? knowing about the at the time most popular and easy to guess mystery from the books? I mean, just by reading ACoK one could more or less predict the general gist of the Red Wedding.
A better test would've been asking them something along the lines of "Who's Gormon Peake" "Who's the bastard of Braavos" or "Why are there two branches of House Fossoway". Now THAT's super nerdy stuff only a real fan would know. Besides:
