We’ve been teased, we’ve been clipped, and now we’re finally getting … trailerd… trailered(?). That’s right the first trailer for Season Five of HBO and George R. R. Martin‘s Game of Thrones has finally hit the Internet. (more…)
This week IMAX released a trailer for HBO’s Game of Thrones upcoming IMAX event where they will screen the season four episodes “The Watchers on the Wall” and “The Children” back-to-back. HBO’s fan favorite adaptation is the first TV program to be shown in IMAX, which is excellent news for the nerd community being that most of us are farsighted. But wait, it gets better – this trailer also includes a glimpse of what is to come in season five. Spoilers and such after the jump, sweetie… (more…)
While fans of Game of Thrones are itching for more Thrones and binge watching past seasons to take the edge off, HBO and IMAX are delivering two episodes and a brand spanking new Season Five Trailer to IMAX screens across the country in late January.

The end of the year means lists, lists and more lists, and here again is the Nerd Bastards list of the Top 10 Nerdy TV Shows of 2014. In case you’ve forgotten, what is a “nerdy TV show?” Well, generally it covers the genres that Nerd Bastards reports on, shows that fall into the category of sci-fi, fantasy, animation, horror, and action. In this year’s edition, we have five returning champions, two shows that return to the list after taking last year off, and four all-new entrants. (Yes, the math is right, and that adds up to 11. I cheated by one.)
Just as it was a compelling year for TV generally, with a lot of excellent shows that were up for contention in the Top 10, the following list aims to present a look at the best across a broad range of shows that can be labelled as nerdy and/or obsessional. Amongst the offerings in 2014 is a time travel cop show and a cop show about dueling psychos. An ensemble drama about dueling clans in a fantasy land, and an ensemble drama about people struggling after the end of the world. There’s a comedy about the loveable misfits of a community college, and an animated series about loveable misfits fighting in a rebellion. A group of literary characters team-up in another pick, and superheroes team-up in another. And finally, one show takes us on a real-life trip through science, while another mirrors real-life news about the growing surveillance state.
Submitted for your approval, the Top 10 Nerdy TV Shows of 2014! (more…)
Arya Stark has been spending most of the past few seasons on Game of Thrones on the run inboynito. Ever since fleeing the capital with the help of Yoren (Night’s Watch recruiter), by chopping her locks and disguising her as an orphan boy named “Arry,” she has been trying to make it home every since. Bumping into all sorts of trouble along the way including; Ser Gregor Clegane (becoming a cup bearer for Tywin Lannister), Brotherhood Without Banners, and Sandor Clegane, Arya eventually finds herself filling the shoes of her fake persona – becoming a hardened, brutal killer, doing what is necessary in order to survive. Throughout this whole period, Arya and Clegane become scavengers, and they aren’t exactly the cleanest of people travelling across Westeros. Futhermore, we are left at the end of Season 4 with Arya leaving an injured Clegane and aboarding a ship for that’s heading towards Braavos, and that only means one thing folks! (more…)

The epic fourth season of Game of Thrones bowed out with the highest ratings of any season finale hitherto. Filming for the 5th season has been ongoing since the start of the summer, and things have been pretty quite marketing wise for the upcoming season on HBO.
One of the interesting and fun things I love about fandoms is the periods between seasons and episodes when fans gather to discuss the series details, spin and speculate about why things happened, and what might possibly happen next. George R.R. Martin’s Game of Thrones has loads of fan interaction from both the book readers and the HBO television series watchers, often those fans being one and the same. Now we’d like to present you with one fan’s theory, feel free to insert “crazy” or the adjective of your choice in there, about everyone’s favorite wine drinking and whoring Lannister, Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage). Prepare to have your Game of Thrones mind blown! (more…)
