Game Of Thrones

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…)

Game of Thrones

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!

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…)

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…)

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…)

This time last year, we were well into enjoying the sixth season of Game of Thrones, but because winter is here, circumstances have forced us to wait a little while longer to see the next phase of the great game play out. Perhaps these will tide you over. We’ve got 15 – count ’em! – 15 brand new photos from the new season and what they lack in action they make for in the appearance of a group of people waiting for the action to commence. From Oldtown, to King’s Landing, to Winterfell, the only thing that’s certain is that the end is almost here. (more…)

Normally, this is the time when we would be getting most excited about the pending arrival of the next season of Game of Thrones. April was usually the launching point for the new season, but the arrival of winter on the series required that shooting dates to be pushed back, so summertime is the time for Game of Thrones now, and winter is very much hinted at in this latest teaser for the show’s penultimate season. In it, three of the series primary characters get ready for the final battle, glaring at the screen with the expectation that some bad stuff is about to go down.  (more…)
