Game Of Thrones
Game of Thrones is a super serious show. For a live action fantasy series, it’s rife with violence, torment, politics, death, and copious amounts of nudity. There’s warring factions, family disputes, power plays, and survival…. but all that is an illusion shattered when you watch this behind the scenes Blooper reel from Game of Thrones season 6.

It looks like Samuel L. Jackson is tired of those Muther@#$%ing dragons on HBO‘s hit show Game of Thrones.

Jackson NSFW style we’ve all become accustomed to. So check out the video below, but first make sure your boss or cubicle co-workers can’t hear and then send the link for this post to that friend you’ve been trying to get hooked on Game of Thrones.

Waiting a year for the next season of Game of Thrones is always a test of endurance, but it looks like fans will have to hunker down and wait just a bit longer than usual. Winter has finally arrived in Westeros and in an effort to provide the most authentic appearance for the show the filming has been delayed in order to best capture the “grim, grey weather even in the sunnier places that we shoot”.
The finale for HBO‘s Game of Thrones sixth season blew the roof off the series ratings record from the fifth season finale with 800,000 more viewers setting the new record at 8.9 million for the on air broadcast. When HBO tallies the numbers for those that watched the finale on DVR, encore, On-Demand, and those that streamed the finale on HBO GO and HBO NOW estimates put the number at 23.3 million total viewers. That’s enough people to make up the entire population of Taiwan. There’s no doubt the show is popular and with two seasons left, and only 15 episodes between them, fans are excited to see what’s coming. Showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss had a couple of things to tell fans about the upcoming two seasons. (more…)
Wow. What a finale! Last night’s season six curtain call of Game of Thrones was full of wages settled, alliances forged, and a definitely feeling that the show was building towards the final moves of the “Great Game.” There were some revelations, and big payoffs as years of build-up paid off for certain characters and saw the unassuming exit of several more, but let’s ask the obvious question: What happens now? Let’s pick at the story threads of season six and untangle them as we look to where we’re going, and where it all might end as we start our long annual wait for more Game of Thrones. Spoilers follow obviously. (more…)
To quote Beyonce: “Who Runs The World? Girls!!
This week’s Game of Thrones gave us the epic battle of Jon Snow against Ramsey Bolton (Snow): The Battle of the Bastards! The Thriller In The North!! So did it live up to the hype? This probably was one of the finest, well shot, well edited, tense, and satisfying episodes of television ever!! They laid everything on the table this episode, and the last 20 minutes left you speechless! While we spent most of our time in the North with #TeamSnow, we also got to see Dany also hold it down with her triumphant return to Meereen.

We’re quickly drawing to a close another season of Game of Thrones, and with it being the sixth season, and considering recent discussions about the show only has maybe 13 episodes of story left in it, it’s all but guaranteed that the next few hours of the show are going to be highly consequential. Not much is known about the final two hours of season six to air on June 19 and 26 respectively, but we do know this, the show is going to be squeezing every minute of action it can out of them. On top of that, you’ll have to make sure your DVRs don’t cut off the last 10 minutes of the finale. (more…)
In this week’s Game of Thrones, a whole lot happened. Jon and Sansa began to put their plan of retaking Winterfell into action. Jamie Lannister went to the Riverlands and involved himself in the war of the Tullys and Freys. We got to see yet more politicking between the Lannisters and the Sparrows. Arya now that she no longer is No One, met up with the Faceless Men for a brief confrontation. Theon and his sister stopped for a little R&R and a quick pep talk. Finally, we got to see what an old friend’s been doing since his, ahem, unintended sabbatical from the story, but will they be back in the mix with all the problems involved in Game of Thrones? While this wasn’t as a high-stakes episode as the past two episodes, the ball moved forward and we got yet another great episode of the show.

‘Game of Thrones‘ is only halfway through its sixth season, but there have already been some memorable moments. The HBO series, which airs Sundays at 9pm, keeps a grueling schedule as it can take up to a month or more to completely shoot episodes for the hit show. This is due to travelling to locations, schedules of the actors, and just who is involved in the scenes to be filmed.
Jack Bender, director of ‘Game of Thrones’ season six episodes “The Door” and “Blood of My Blood,” recently spoke with Vanity Fair about his work on the series and he revealed a point of interest regarding next season. Bender claims that next season will only consist of seven episodes. (more…)
