Game Of Thrones
At this point, Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss can pretty much write their own ticket. The HBO show based on George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Fire and Ice novels (still waiting for you to finish them George!) is in its 7th season and going strong after this week’s season premiere. As this is Game of Thrones’ penultimate season before the big climactic conclusion of the much-loved show, everyone is wondering what is next for the famed duo. After all, they managed to give us Martin’s brilliant work and have millions of people absorbed in the world of Westeros. Whatever they do next will have to be something just as big (and just as good).
Everyone seemed super happy to have Game of Thrones back on their airwaves (and internet tubes) Sunday night, but that happiness turned to rage when Arya Stark came upon a group of Lannister soldiers encamped and one of them was revealed to be Ed Sheeran. Many logged their disgust on social media within seconds of this appearance of the hit radio icon who dared sully the sanctity of Thrones with his… something, and was that one of his latest hits he was singing? Terrible! Poor Ed Sheeran. What did he do to deserve your ire? Especially since the appearance was meant as a nice gesture to one of the Thrones‘ cast members. (more…)
The ratings for Game of Thrones’ seventh season premiere have not yet been posted, but given that the premiere was delayed, it’s the second last season of the show, and that Thrones is one of the biggest shows on TV, the size of the audience watching it is predictably going to be huge. Until we get more empirical evidence, maybe we can make the point this way: excitement over the Game of Thrones premiere was so huge that it caused HBO to crash. Or its websites anyway. (more…)
The wait is finally over. Winter has finally come! Complete with an HBO countdown clock, Game of Thrones returned to the premiere pay channel Sunday night, and when last we left off, Daenerys was on her way to Westeros and had teamed up with the Greyjoy siblings, the Tyrells, and the Sands to take the fight to Cersei and claim the throne.
Cersei had not only defeated the High Sparrow, but after unleashing Wildfire like the Mad King did before her, she now has assumed the throne (thanks to her son’s suicide), and her brother-lover Jaime doesn’t look too happy about it.
Arya started to enact her vengeance and killed Walder Frey after serving him his own sons as part of a meat pie! Sam has made it to the Citadel to learn from the Maesters on how to stop the White Walkers. Jon Snow has been crowned King of the North by the Northern families, oh yeah, and he’s also Lyanna Stark’s bastard child, not Ned’s, which means Jon’s really a Targaryen! With so many running stories, Season 7 promises to be exciting!
Tonight (Sunday, July 16) Game of Thrones returns for it’s seventh and penultimate season. If you were planning on binge watching the entire series prior to the new seasons premiere but don’t have the 600+ plus hours to spare, you’re in luck! The fine folk over at HBO, the shows home network, have crammed the past six season into this slick little 5 minute refresher. (more…)
Is there a message in this second Game Of Thrones season seven trailer… a dire prediction? Of course there is! There are at least three huge armies roaming the seven kingdoms as the White Walkers look south and Winter settles in across the land. Can those factions unite to face the true enemy or will the undead claim the field after defeating the last army standing? July 16th can’t get here fast enough! (more…)
Special effects hold a dear place in many of our nerdy hearts. Those folks that turn writers dreams into miraculous looking dragons on HBO‘s Game Of Thrones for instance. Emilia Clarke loves green yarn, but even thought the director couldn’t get her to put it down, the effects people were able to turn it into this: (more…)
Isn’t the Internet a wonderful place? Out of the blue things pop up and make your day just a little bit better. Rapper Ras Kass recapped the sixth season in a delightful rap that was then put to video. This might just be the Internet nugget that makes you smile and gets you ready for the July 16th premiere of season seven of HBO‘s Game Of Thrones. Check it out below. (more…)
Damn, it has been a long wait, but wait no longer. The first trailer for HBO‘s Game Of Thrones season seven is here in all its glory. There’s so much to see and so much to think about. Check it out below. (more…)
13. There are 13 episodes left in Game of Thrones. The first seven drop this summer, and the remaining six will be released in 2018, but after that, HBO will be without what is currently its biggest hit, and what has become a cultural touchstone with millions of fans around the world. With the exception of George R.R. Martin‘s remaining novels in the Song of Fire and Ice series, that’s it for the gang from Westeros, right? Not necessarily. HBO, and the team behind the series is currently developing not just one, not just two, but four potential spin-offs to continue Thrones TV legacy after the series finale. (more…)
