Game Of Thrones
Westworld seems to be the show that HBO fans have been waiting for, an expansive world with dozens of characters with their own separate ambitions, desires, and obstacles to overcome. What else does that sound like on HBO? Yes, it’s probably pretty easy to draw comparisons between Game of Thrones and Westworld, or at least they have more in common than say Game of Thrones and Vinyl. In a sense, they’re both about fantasy worlds that are as dangerous as they are lovely to look at. So how about it? Could Westwold’s cowboy robots meet Thrones’ white walkers? The creators have talked about it. (more…)
There are certain things that come with being British like an accent, allegiance to the Queen, and a fondness for bizarre sounding foods like “blood pudding” being examples. If you’re a British actor though, the entitlement extends to an appearance in the franchise of your choice whether it’s Harry Potter, Downton Abbey or Game of Thrones. Of course, sometimes those actors can appear in any combination of the three, and indeed there’s been a lot of crossover between them already. But how about this: What if Harry Potter himself were to appear on Game of Thrones? Well Daniel Radcliffe is game if the right opportunity came up. (more…)
As you’re undoubtedly already aware, there are only 13 hours of Game of Thrones left, and they will be spread out over two seasons to prolong the agony of fans. With an endgame in mind for the series, it should come as no surprise that HBO would be looking for a way to keep this lucrative franchise going in some way after the series finale, and one of the ways to do that would be with some kind of prequel series. The show, and the books it’s based, refer back to a rich history in the imaginary land of Westeros, just don’t expect the guys behind the current show to want to come back and explore it further.

Just when you’ve come to terms with the fact that Game of Thrones won’t be back in April – Due to the long-awaited arrival of winter in the season six finale, filming has been pushed back for season seven, with a return date at some point late summer – HBO announces that the hit series will officially end at season 8. The show about warring factions, family disputes, power plays, and….and… bewbz, it will all be over. *insert sad face here* (more…)
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.
Be warned that minor spoilers lie ahead if you’re not caught up. (more…)
It looks like Samuel L. Jackson is tired of those Muther@#$%ing dragons on HBO‘s hit show 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…)
