Game of Thrones Season 8

Recommended Posts

This might not be the best place to put this, but is anyone else playing the Game of Thrones Conquest game?  I just started it, it's somewhat entertaining.

Game of Thrones won best drama, Peter Dinklage won best supporting actor, along with 7 other wine in the creative arts categories.

 

I do find it odd that this season was not exactly consistent, but won anyway.  It also wasn’t Dinklage’s best season, but he won. 

 

In in other news, Emilia has 3 dragons tattooed on her arm.

They’re all good. Arya is probably the most badass but I hate the location. I like that they each got something significant to their character

Yeah I was surprised it won best drama but people were down on Westworld and Handmaids Tale season 2, while great, is not an easy watch. GOT still had some really high marks in season 7 and the production value is thru the roof. 

 

Dinklage didn’t get a lot of good material this season. That win is a bigger surprise.

Unrelated but i had some season 8 stuff spoiled for me. Usually Reddit does a good job of hiding spoilers and marking those threads but man just kinda casually stumbled into that sub the other day and there are like 20 posts about “RIP to X” I couldn’t believe it 

 

about to crawl into a hole until April...

So, I won’t post them here because they could be spoilery, but an early pic from season 8 and a few things are starting to trickle out.

 

Given the coordinated nature of the info, I’m sure it’s all random...

Double post due to stupid internet connection.

Btw, this image has a better ... view .... of Sophie.  

 

I still think these two are headed in the True Hollywood Story direction...

 

Other GOT news: apparently Naomi Watts has been cast in a leading role in the GOT prequel.

 

And the Mountain got married

My mistake then - on Imgur it was posted as Maisie.

I'm typically not much into the look, but Sophie looks much sexier in goth...damn.

Sophie would look sexy in a potato sack.

 

i agree, it’s not my thing, but damn she’s got it down.  I think part of it is that she’s really in character for the pics. 

 

I wonder if she and Joe stayed in character for after party “festivities...”

 

As an aside, They really casted the younger stark kids well.  Both Masie and Sophie have turned out to be pretty good actresses, which nobody could have known 10 years ago.  It was not as apparent then based on what we knew about the character arcs by the books which were released at the time, at least for Sansa (as she really was just a stupid girl doing stupid things for the first several seasons), but they REALLY had to nail those actor choices or else the entire Stark plot line could be really “meh”

April 2019

Has that been officially confirmed by HBO? I’ve seen all the rumors but I don’t think I’ve seen an official notice...

For those interested, Watchers on the Wall has created a new podcast called Night’s Cast.  It’s prwtry good, has both spoiled and non-spoiler sections.

 

Nowhere near as good as the binge mode recaps, but a good listen anyway.

At this rate I feel like the books and show are blended enough to not have to dig up the ASOIAF book thread ...

 

Anyone else reading the new Martin book on the Targaeryans? God it's good. Can't put it down. I'm like 350 pages in and just now getting to 100 AC ... Martin and his editors have a way of telling a story

Which book is that, please? I need to put it on my list.

 

It's called Fire and Blood. It's a book chronicling the history of the Targaryens from Aegon and his conquest through the Mad King I believe. 

 

I'm hoping this was something GRRM had to get out in order to kick his writers block or get in a rhythm or align the pieces in his head, whatver it takes so he can finish the books. I would like to read the complete series some day.

Gonna be a long 4 months

 

I've been putting it off long enough but I already told the wife once we move into the new house this month, we are plowing through the series before season 8. She's never seen it.

 

I just watched episode 1 the other day for fun. Trying to prepare my pop-up videoesque comments to help clue her in so she doesn't go cross-eyed trying to keep up with all the names and locations and plots. I didn't do this for LOTR and I'm pretty sure the poor thing went comatose somewhere in the middle of The Two Towers. I remember something about "why does everybody have a longhair and a beard and look the same?"

 

Episode 1 is so good though. They lay so much groundwork for the characters and world. It's impressive. Can't wait for another binge.
