There are two Game of Thrones episodes left. Yes. Just. Two. As if that’s not bad enough, HBO is now pulling one of the silliest stunts we’ve seen in television. It’s withholding episode descriptions for episodes 9 and 10, all in the name of secrecy. Too bad the network isn’t as good as preventing episodes from leaking well ahead of their premieres. More →
Game of Thrones has a serious piracy problem. That much is not news, but with the most recent season, things are getting to a whole new level.
As TorrentFreak reports, last night’s Game of Thrones episode was leaked to pirates hours in advance of its actual release on HBO. What makes things worse is that the leak didn’t come from the usual source, press screeners — it appears to be coming from an official HBO streaming service.
Even though HBO decided to bring Jon Snow back to life rather early at the end of the second episode of the current Game of Thrones season, he’s had only a few brief appearances since then. And so far we’ve seen a Jon Snow who’s troubled about what happened, but also pretty determined to help Sansa and his family regain command of the north and then lead the defenses against the White Walkers. To some people, it may feel like Jon Snow is too absent from the show, but that’s actually a good thing. The show isn’t only about him, and while a big part of the main plot of the season revolves around this particular character, there are plenty of other important things going on in Westeros and Essos that we need to be aware of.
With just two episodes left in season six, episode 8 brought us even closer to the inevitable conflict between bastards. But you should stop reading now, to avoid major spoilers, if you haven’t seen episode 8 yet. More →
We’re at that point in the current Game of Thrones season where we’re experiencing both huge anticipation and sadness at the same time. With episode 7 done for, it means the action will significantly pick up in the three parts left in the season. But it also means we’re going to get back to waiting for months for season 7 to come along.
That said, we’re not quite there yet, and episode 7 is only revealing more of the machinations that go behind winning a throne — any throne, not just the one in King’s Landing. We might be looking for exciting, fast-paced episodes filled with interesting revelations and epic battles. But intrigue is probably the single most important thing happening in The Seven Kingdoms. It truly is a game of thrones. And episode 7 is full of intrigue – major spoilers follow ahead, so avoid them at all costs if you haven’t seen the latest episode. More →
Like or not, we’re getting closer to the end of yet another Game of Thrones season, which means we’re getting awfully close to what’ll probably be quite an ending. The first trailer for next week’s episode is already here, offering us glimpses at the next games that are going to be played for this particular throne. Beware, though, spoilers lie ahead, so don’t watch the clip if you haven’t seen last night’s episode. More →
In less than a month we’ll go into Game of Thrones withdrawal, as HBO’s top show is nearing the end of season six. Episode 6 may not have been the most interesting episode this season — in fact, it was pretty terrible — but it still reminded us that there are so many plots and subplots to keep track of. Episode 7 might be a lot more interesting if the first trailer is any indication.
Now, HBO has released a slew of new images from the upcoming episode, offering us yet another a taste of what’s to come. More →
Long before Game of Thrones season 6 kicked off on HBO, book readers began to worry that the show would spoil many of the upcoming plot points in the remaining books that George R.R. Martin has yet to complete. They were right — the show has now moved into uncharted territory — but that doesn’t mean the books aren’t still going to have plenty of surprises of their own.
In his regular HBO show that features “the fewest games and the least impressive thrones,” John Oliver has a segment in which he tries to understand why some things still exist, like daylight savings time or the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition. But he’s now looking to figure out why some things that we desperately need haven’t been invented yet.
Last Week Tonight is on vacation for Memorial Day, so Oliver recorded a YouTube exclusive video to tell us some of the things he’d like to see invented to make our lives easier. More →
May 29th, 2016. Remember that date.
I can’t pinpoint exactly when it happened, but I remember how sad I was when I finally came to terms with the fact that The Sopranos had gone from being one of the best television series the world had ever seen to being a disappointment. It might not have been until the show’s final season, but the writers simply ran out of steam and the actors followed closely behind. Some would say that they pulled things together for the finale, which was certainly one of the most polarizing conclusions a popular show has ever seen. But no one would argue that The Sopranos wrapped up on a level that was nowhere close to where it began.
We’re not done mourning Hodor yet, but the Game of Thrones universe doesn’t just simply stop. Each character has new adventures to deal with, adding to the plethora of plots and subplots the viewer has to keep track of to make sense of everything in the Seven Kingdoms.
HBO just aired episode 6 of its most popular TV show and we’re going to dive into it right here. But stop reading right now if you haven’t seen it yet, as major spoilers will follow. More →
We’re already through five new Game of Thrones episodes, which brought us some amazing events including Jon Snow’s resurrection and Hodor’s death, to name just a few. But five episodes still remain in season 6, and we can’t wait to see the next one. HBO already released a trailer for episode 6, set to air Sunday night in the US, but now we have a series of fresh images from the set that offer us a sneak peek at the new episode titled Blood of My Blood.
The new photos might not tell us much about the upcoming plot twists, but if you want to avoid spoilers at all costs, you know the drill: Stay away from what follows below.
