13 more hours of Game of Thrones….

13 more hours of Game of Thrones…. 

The countdown has begun… Game of Thrones show creator David Benioff has told the world: “It’s two more seasons we’re talking about[.] From pretty close to the beginning, we talked about doing this in 70-75 hours, and that’s what we’ll end up with. Call it 73 for now.” We’ve already had 60 hours, so this means that […]

Game of Thrones: Content vs. Delivery

Game of Thrones: Content vs. Delivery 

I’ve just finished the fourth episode of the current season and I’m more engaged with both the show and the world of A Song of Ice and Fire than I have been since A Dance With Dragons was published in 2011. This renewed interest in Mr. Martin’s world is 100% attributable to the fact that […]

Oh, actually, 8 Seasons…

Oh, actually, 8 Seasons… 

In what I see as a complete U-Turn, HBO’s President, Michael Lombardo, he is now saying that Game of Thrones will go at least eight seasons. I must admit that this does genuinely frustrate me as a fan of the television series. For years HBO and the writers have told us that they’ve always planned for […]

‘A Game of Thrones’ without Dragons?

‘A Game of Thrones’ without Dragons? 

Imagine if the gift of A Song of Ice & Fire was never given to the fantasy genre. Yes, it was, but humour me for a minute… In my eyes, George R.R. Martin has to be thanked extensively for this contribution to the current state of fantasy. Think about it: would we be seeing the current stream of […]

Game of Thrones: TV To Overtake Books?

Game of Thrones: TV To Overtake Books? 

Since Game of Thrones for television was first announced, questions about whether the books would be able to keep up with the rate at which HBO produced episodes were asked. Despite Martin having a 4 book head start, it seems that the producers of the show, David Benioff and Dan Weiss, feel that seven series in […]

Get Fit watching Game of Thrones

So, I was reading Men’s Fitness Magazine today when I came across a Game of Thrones fitness game. I guess you wouldn’t generally consider watching your favourite television series as capable of benefiting your exercise (you usually watch it whilst sprawled out on the sofa eating pizza and sipping coke/beer, right?), however, the magazine has […]

Having spotted this on the Inn at the Crossroads blog, I was utterly intrigued and decided I simply had to add it to my reviews list. Firstly because it was being published by Random House, and not by Harper who publish A Song of Ice and Fire, and I was curious about why, and secondly […]
