The incredible Max von Sydow and Ian McShane have signed on for season six of the show. Also, GoT S5 is available for pre-order already, for $39.99 on blu-ray. Expect this to drop to $29.99 around the release time in February 2016.
I think GoT is quite a bit overhyped. But that's just me, obviously GoT is massive if not even the most watched TV Show at the moment.
I can understand it not being for everyone. Personally, I love it. I wouldn't say it's overhyped, but then again, I find 'The Walking Dead' to be incredibly overrated, so opinions do vary.
The Walking Dead's first season was fantastic. But then it became Grey's Anatomy within two episodes of season two with some zombies appearing every now and then. Just bad.
I stopped in the middle of season three, I couldn't take all that relationship s**t anymore and the zombies were more like annoying occurrences.
GoT could have been "saved" for me if they hadn't killed of the main character played by Sean Bean. That was the last straw...
This doesn't surprise me, happy to know you're as big of a fan as I am! I need to finish up my GoT marathon, I'm really slacking. I got halfway through S1E9 (and you know things realllllly kick off after that episode's finale) and put it on hold to catch up on some movies I've missed lately. I was hoping to get through the first four seasons before season five was out on blu-ray, but that won't be happening now.
I was disappointed with the previous Fifth Season. I had been reading the books and I found the OTT violence and brutality (in two scenes that were not in the books) to be shocking and I do not see why the producers felt they had to "push the envelope" last year. the show is immensely popular and there was no cause for some of the crap viewers were subjected to last year.
Aside from the Sand Snakes and any scene with Emilia Clark in it, I found Season 5 to be a letdown.
Now on to Season 6: I was highly satisfied. The show kept me entertained and I was glad to see at least two assholes get their just desserts (violent and bloody deaths).
Yep there's something like 14 or so episodes left. It's going to be super exciting stuff.
It's an absolute shame that director, Miguel Sapochnik won't be returning for season 7. That man knows how to visually entertain, deliver in character, plot and atmosphere.
I want to take a moment and pay tribute to those who died this past season 6. Some old members since Season 1-2. So here goes:
Black Walder Frey
Walder Frey (finally)
Grand Maester Peycell
Rickon Stark (very sad)
Sadistic Nun (she's not dead, least not yet)
Ramsey "Snow' Bolton
Prince of Dorn (Tristan's pop)
Alistair Thorne (thorn in Jon's side from the time he joined the Nights Watch)
I am sure I missed some but forgive me. Of these deaths, the most satisfying was Walder Frey and Ramsey. The most surprising was Margery and the saddest was Rickon.
Question for you military minded members:
Now that Daenyrys has her fleet, dragons and has set sail for Westeros, what should be her first move?
1. Stop at the Iron Islands and secure Asha and Theon's position by destroying their uncle?
2. Head for Dorn and the Reach and reinforce her army with Dornishmen and men from there?
3. Head for Kings landing and destroy the Lannisters once and for all?
4. Capture the Lannister base at Casterly Rock and draw the Lannister army out and smash them in the grand battle?
I started the books after I started watching the show about a year or so ago. I am not excited to read the next book as I know there may be spoilers inside, even though the show has overtaken the books, I still expect to see spoilers. Also I could just take the attitude that the books and show are like alternative histories, parallel dimensions so to speak.
The first poster for season seven of 'Game of Thrones' is now online, and the premiere date for the new season will be unveiled around 2 PM EST:
May 22nd, 2017 EDIT: More images have been unveiled:
I am just rushing through series 6 as I missed half of it and luckily SKY have put all of series 1-6 box sets on 'on demand' which is free .
I can totally understand how people on here don't like the Walking Dead as that seemed to really slow down,and each series was about 20 episodes long !!
I think you have to be either GoT or WD as there isn't really room in your life for both and other things as well,and I'm firmly in the GoT club.
Just the scenery alone,the battles,the undead,giants,dragons etc, and the acting are all superb ,and even though Andrew Lincoln is English (the sheriff) in WD,in real life ,I still prefer GoT (mind you most actors in this are British as well.
You do know this is a James Bond discussion site and that Sir Roger Moore has died ?
Are you going to leave a nice comment about him on his thread ?
I used to watch both, until I realized I'm not a fan of bloated soap operas (double negative, I suppose), which is when I quit watching 'The Walking Dead.'
I've scarcely seen a comment on here that was so off-base and incorrect. Did the showrunners steal your lunch money in a past life?
Eh? I watch both and a whole bunch of other stuff...too many TV shows in fact.
