Who Else Has Dragons, Really?

HBO is going whole hog in promoting the upcoming season of Game of Thrones. Each season, almost episode to episode over the first three years, has gained new viewers which is practically impossible to pull off, let alone maintain. They really want to see that trend continue, and have opted this year to give us a fifteen minute "foreshadowing" of the new season, with interviews with the cast and crew, and sneak peaks of new footage.

They also press the point that this season isn't a ramp up to a big event, like the Red Wedding, but rather that the first three seasons have been a ramp up to this. Which, if you've read the books, you know is kind of true. And, if you've read the books, you recognise the purpose of every one of the scenes they are giving us a sneak peek to. And anyone who hasn't read the books really has no excuse at this point. This is season 4 already. Just read the damned things so the rest of us don't have to be so spoiler cautious.

Additionally, Gwendoline Christie seems really giddy about being on this show.

About MR. Clark

Adopting the descriptor of "successfully unpublished author", MR. Clark began writing things on the internet in 2012, which he believed to be an entirely reputable and civilized place to find and deliver information. He regrets much.
