Game Of Thrones
The second episode of Game of Thrones season five picks up some familiar story lines from last year, most notably Arya Stark’s journey across the narrow sea to the House of Black & White (also the title for this week’s episode). Thematically it sets the tone for the entire episode, presenting characters throughout the story with seemingly dichotomous plot options – do you take one path or another? By virtue of this storytelling device, it also highlights the road often travelled in our favorite HBO program, the morally ambiguous grey path where incest, feticide, and most other concepts of right and wrong are so often blurred and thrown out the window. Oh G.R.R. Martin, what exactly happened to you as a child? (more…)

The first episode of Game of Thrones season five gives viewers a snapshot of how things have progressed since last season. Kings Landing is in mourning, Pentos see’s the arrival of a new guest, Slaver’s Bay has a murder mystery, the heir to The Vale finds a new home, and the Wall has quite a stirring bonfire. We even get our first flashback sequence of the series (Lost fans, rejoice)! What do we learn across the board? One’s enemies are just around the corner, so stand and fight or get a running start! Remember, there’s plenty of work to be done in service to the realm. Valar dohaeris – all men must serve. Beware, some spoilers after the jump! (more…)
The Internet is dark and full of illegal downloads. At least it was yesterday and earlier today when someone leaked the first four Season Five episodes of HBO‘s hit show Game of Thrones. You can be sure that HBO CEO Richard Plepler is calling for someone’s head over this one. Game of Thrones is already the most pirated show on the planet and HBO carefully timed the start-up of their new streaming service HBO Now to coincide with the start of Game of Thrones Season Five. How did it all happen? (more…)
Apparently being a burgeoning bad ass in Westeros isn’t good enough for Maisie Williams, nor is, apparently, appearing on just one big TV show. The Game of Thrones actress has been cast for a guest starring role in an episode of the long-running sci-fi series’ ninth season, albeit as what, we’re not exactly sure. She could be a hero, she could be a villain, or she could be some random person that The Doctor helps. On the other hand though, Williams looks quite comfy at the controls of the TARDIS in the picture above, so it begs the question, are we looking at a companion in the making? After all, everyone has two franchises nowadays. (more…)
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…)
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. It was a valid concern considering the time frames between books. Well, now we know. (more…)
Called ‘flat-out-brilliant,’ and the ‘funniest out-of-the-box comedy in a good while,’ the smash HBO hit Silicon Valley. Season 1 is being released to DVD/BluRay March 31st – just in time to catch up for the April 12th season premiere!
Ahead of the premier of season 2 HBO has released a new trailer for the smart and irreverent series. Check it out below: (more…)
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 Season 5 is almost upon us. To excite and tease eagerly awaiting fans, comes a new heart pounding trailer from Apple. This new look into the happenings of Westeros shows tons of new footage; including (but hardly limited to) the “breaking the wheel” monologue from Daenerys, in which she plots to end the cycle of family violence that has plagued her high born land, and more footage of Jonathan Pryce’s character the High Sparrow.
