Oh the tap dance we all do these days to avoid posting tripping over spoilers for our favorite shows. AMC felt the wrath of the well-timed spoiler when they posted one about a character death on their The Walking Dead Facebook page an hour before the West coast aired the episode. Another show that often has folks up in arms about spoilers and trying to prevent their book reading friends from spoiling for them is George R.R. Martin and HBO‘s Game of Thrones. Here’s the thing though, Martin doesn’t understand what everyone is so upset about when it comes to spoilers. (more…)

George R.R. Martin

It’s been a running joke that George R.R. Martin needs to write faster. When the HBO Game Of Thrones series was first announced, after all the fanfare and rejoicing died down more than a few people wondered what would happen if the television series caught up to the books.

They say all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, but what about George? The “George” in this case is author George R.R. Martin, the author of a series of books that are the basis for a little show you might have heard of called Game of Thrones. The HBO series is about to enter its fifth season, and the reason that matters is because if the show goes into season six it may officially be entering uncharted territory. That is to say that it will be forced to move on through the arc of the story without Martin’s books to guide them. And that’s one of the reasons that Martin says he’ll be bowing out of appearing at a number of high-profile cons this summer, including San Diego Comic Con, to finish book number six. (more…)

Game of Thrones is a super serious show. For a live action fantasy it’s rife with violence, torment, politics, death, and copious amounts of nudity. Warring factions, family disputes, power plays, and survival…. all that is an illusion shattered when you watch this behind the scenes Blooper reel from Game of Thrones season 4.

Be warned that minor spoilers lie ahead if you’re not caught up. (more…)
