There are two categories of Game of Thrones people: those who have seen every episode and can’t get enough of it, and those who haven’t seen any of them but have had enough of it. Whether you’re a Game of Thrones veteran or you’re avoiding the show at all costs, you simply have to watch the following video. It’s almost eight minutes of pure Samuel L. Jackson awesomeness, as he explains everything that has happened on Game of Thrones so far. More →
The finale for the sixth season of Game of Thrones might have been the most eventful episode in the show’s history, but that makes it all the more difficult to cope with the fact that we won’t see any new episodes until next spring.
It’s going to be an excruciating wait, but one fan decided to help ease the pain by putting together short, tightly edited supercuts of some of the main characters.
Last summer, the main topic of conversation for Game of Thrones fans was Jon Snow’s upcoming resurrection. The closer we got to winter, the clearer it became that Jon Snow wasn’t dead. This year we’ve got yet another Jon Snow-related conundrum: who is Jon Snow? HBO closed its sixth season with a clear hint that Jon Snow is the son of Lyanna Stark. Then, out of the blue, it confirmed an old fan theory that Lyanna and Rhaegar Targaryen are his parents.
So the next thing we need to talk about is Jon Snow’s real name. Thankfully, a diehard Game of Thrones fan has a sound theory about that. More →
Episode 9 of the just-ended Game of Thrones season 6 is titled Battle of the Bastards, and it featured one of the best battles ever seen on the TV show, and perhaps one of the greatest action scenes in TV history. The following short video will show you some of the amazing special effects used in the episode – but beware, because major spoilers lie ahead if you haven’t already seen the episode.
Even if you’re not watching Game of Thrones, you probably know the sixth season of HBO’s top TV show to date has just ended, and what a massive season finale that was. That said, HBO’s story isn’t done, and Game of Thrones showrunners still have a good 15 hours of storytelling to do, which will be spread across two new seasons. But HBO already inadvertently – or maybe intentionally – told everyone who Jon Snow’s parents are well ahead of the upcoming season. Beware, major spoilers follow below. More →
The sixth season of Game of Thrones just wrapped up, with the 60th overall episode of the series having been a glorious season finale — likely one of the best episodes in the entire series. Fans are eagerly waiting to see what’s going to happen next, but season 7 won’t debut until next year. And HBO showrunners confirmed what we already feared: There are just 15 episodes left in the series at most, meaning season 7 and season 8 will have less than 10 episodes each. More →
Wow, simply wow! If you haven’t seen the grand finale of Game of Thrones’ season 6, drop whatever you’re doing and watch it. It’s one of the best episodes of the entire show, and probably the best in the season, although episode 9 will give it a run for its money. I’ll spoil this for you right here, right now: Winter is no longer “coming.” Because you knew that already. Winter is here!

This weekend’s penultimate episode of Game of Thrones season 6 was one of the most exciting and brutal in the history of the series.
The Battle of the Bastards lived up to the hype, but until you watch some of the episode’s highlights with Ghostbusters star and SNL cast member Leslie Jones, you really haven’t experienced it.
This year’s Game of Thrones season is slowly coming to an end. The season finale airs on Sunday and it will hopefully bring resolutions to several matters that have not been resolved. Sure, the Battle of the Bastards episode was one of the best this season, but there are plenty of other things happening in Westeros and Essos that need to be further explained. While we wait for the last episode of season 6 to hit HBO, we can confirm that one popular theory related to the most recent events in Game of Thrones has been officially shot down. Before we tell you what it is, you should be aware that major spoilers follow below. So don’t read any further unless you’ve already seen the first nine episodes of this season. More →
Game of Thrones is famous for being the most pirated show on TV, but what about its legal ratings? As it turns out, those aren’t so bad either.
When you add up all the different forms of viewing — originals, repeats, DVR and streaming — HBO’s hit series is now up to 23 million viewers from the US alone per episode. That’s a marked increase from last year, and a new high for the series.
I don’t know that I hate anyone enough to continually text them Game of Thrones spoilers from an anonymous number. But luckily, if I did, there’s an app for that.
As The Next Web spotted, for a simple one-off payment of $0.99, Spoiled.io will spam a phone number of your choice with Game of Thrones spoilers. The texts (which also appear to contain photos) are sent in real time, so even if your target is watching on a slightly laggy free stream, they’ll have their evening of entertainment thoroughly ruined.
Last week’s Game of Thrones episode brought us one of the most ambitious battles in the series, a fight between bastards that reached epic proportions. Sure, there are some holes in the plot, but the resulting action is simply spectacular. HBO pulled out all the stops on this one to offer the viewer a glimpse of what it’s like to experience a medieval battle.
A behind-the-scenes video explaining how HBO creators and director imagined and shot the battle reveals that it’s not all computer-generated imagery. Sure, CGI was used for plenty of special effects including effects not seen before in the series, but many of the brilliant scenes in the ninth episode of season 6 were shot using actors, horses, and real props. Mind you, major spoilers are about to follow, so avoid the clip if you haven’t seen Sunday’s Battle of the Bastards episode yet.
