    Amazingly, I’ve only just noticed this was released a few days ago:

    It looks fantastic, obviously, and there’s so much that seems to be new to book readers. I’m very excited about the show taking its own path.

    The constant fading to and from black is distracting, but it is a good trailer.

    This is when things get better than the books…:D

    Though what the heck are they gonna do after this season? There won’t be any story left to tell!

    Weiss and Benioff have had a conversation with George RR Martin so they’re not working with nothing.

    It’s… interesting.

    Thought the first four episodes have meandered a bit at times but this season is partly based on Feast for Crows. ;)

    But Feast is excellent! It’s definitely slower, but thematically it’s probably the most impressive book in the series. Then again, it’s a thousand times better if you listen to a combined Feast / Dance audiobook.

    I struggle with audio.

    I, Partridge, ABHOTT, pre-video RHLSTP (rhlstp) and the occassional Hardcore History got my focus better by easing the tedium of cross trainer sessions.

    (She really didn’t like me ignoring her. *rimshot*)

    You haven’t lived until you’ve heard Roy Dotrice’s Welsh Lannister voices.

    “Ooh,” said Lister.
    “Ooh,” said the woman with the invisible appendectomy scar.

    I wonder if any other diseases in Westeros or Essos are named after color modes in Photoshop.

    So is Daenerys married yet? It’s hard to tell.

    Would you like a Grey Worm-do?

    YES! Drogon :)

    Wedding’s probably off, then.

    And yes, that was a proper pnch the air moment. I’ve seen people saying the special effects weren’t very good, but I thought they were so much better than we could ever expect given the scale (lol) of the whole thing.

    Almost enough to dry the tears after Shireen’s death. That’s a book spoiler, too (pretty much confirmed by D&D), which in a way is the real tragedy here.

    It’s spelled “dragon”, you idiots, not “drogon”.

    Best part of the episode was Gatiss about to clap for Tyrell’s singing.

    If book Selyse and Melisandre kill Shireen without Stannis’ knowledge (going by that youtube clip) that should be more interesting than mapsex! Stannis.

    Also those jerks should stop giving out book spoilers. Bad enough that in the season one commentary for the first episode they talked about Daenerys in flippin’ Dance with Dragons.
