Out of all the television shows in history, very few have such commanding theme songs as the Game of Thrones opening sequence. It seemed only fitting to kick off our inaugural post for the illustrious Game of Thrones week.
So welcome, mighty Nerdship, to a week of nothing but Game of Thrones related posts. We have some pretty exciting stuff lined up this week including series related recipes, some DIY goodness, and a few thought-provoking pieces. Oh – and a giveaway, but more on that later. We even have a special guest blogger (Aubrey from Adventures in Aubreyland). All-in-all, it is going to be quite an epic week and we hope that you’ll stay tuned for the excitement.
***Spoilers of the Previous Seasons Ahead!***
In the meantime, let’s play a little catch up before tonight’s season 4 premiere. Unlike the three previous seasons, Season 4 will change a few things and not line up exactly with the events in the book. Season 4 is supposed to pick up right in the middle of Book Three – right after the Red Wedding. Can I just take a moment to say HOLY FRAK that was one way to end a season!
As someone who has read all of the published books, I can’t say that I wasn’t expecting it but dang… that was epic. I’ll spare you from future events especially since during ComicCon last year the actor who plays Bron admitted … or let it slip… that the events in the book and the events in this and future seasons may not align up perfectly. It happens in movies all the time, so it’s not shocking. I’ll be excited to see what happens and what changes. Will you?
Alright, before Season 4 kicks off I found a nifty recap of the last seasons from Screen Junkies. If you need a refresher course, it’ll be best if you catch up with this little gem.
And if you’re in need of a very good laugh, you really need to watch this little beauty. It’s by the geniuses behind Bad Lip Reading and turns Game of Thrones in on it’s head.
As far as Season 4 goes, I really hope that Joffrey dies sooner rather than later. He’s such a stupid, poo-poo head. Also, Tywin Lannister is so frelling awesome – he plays mind games like a chess master plays chess. And who’s ready for Daenerys to actually cross the sea with her dragons?! As far as favorite characters go I can’t wait for Arie’s adventures to continue – especially since they were so close to meeting up with her mother and brother right before the Red Wedding.
