    Game of Thrones Season 4, April 6th

    Game of Thrones will return to our torrent sites on April 6th for Season 4.

    It's been a long wait since Season 3 and I'm sure it will be worth it. I've not read the book so I don't know the ending, or more to the point, which army will take the throne.

    I'd say it's looking favourable for Daenerys Targaryen (Kalisi) the boner-inducing dragon whore, what with her dragons and her castrated army, but I have a feeling there may be a twist with the Stark girl. Also her face is the cover for the series. Either way, the Lanisters are gettin' it!

    I shall be watching this one weekly. Here is the trailer:

    Lang may yer lum reek...

    Good series but he should have finished it sooner.
    The last book was terrible.

    ^ It's HBO. They never commit to anything, once the ratings drop, particularly on an expensive show they drop it like a hot potato.

    ‘Game Of Thrones’ Creator Writing Faster To Finish Books 6 & 7

    After taking more than twenty years to write five of the seven novels in his A Song of Ice and Fire fantasy series, widely celebrated author and screenwriter George R.R. Martin is feeling the pressure of his own success. As Game of Thrones, the HBO program based on his novels, continues moving forward year after year, Martin knows that he’s going to have to pick up the pace with the final pair of books to satisfy the network- and his fans.


    Speaking to Mashable in a recent interview, Martin acknowledged the need to pick up the pace with The Winds of Winter - the upcoming sixth entry in the Song of Ice and Fire saga – while also discussing the dangers of establishing and dodging deadlines. With the third season of HBO’s show premiering this coming Sunday, Martin realizes that it’s only a matter of time before the two entities are caught up to one another. On that subject, he had the following to say in the below direct quote:

    “So I need to write faster. The last two books took a really long time, so I’m hoping this one [the Winds of Winter] will go a little faster. But I make no promises. I found out long ago that when you look at the overall task, the cathedral you have to build, it looks so daunting that you just give up and sit down and play a video game.”

    Martin published the most recent installment of A Song of Ice and Fire, titled A Dance With Dragons, almost two years ago on July 12, 2011- the same year HBO kicked off their televised adaptation of Martin’s towering epic – and an eyebrow-raising five years after releasing the fourth book, A Feast For Crows. Since then, Martin has only made piecemeal progress with The Winds of Winter while TV showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have three seasons under their belts. The writing is on the wall, so to speak: they’re gaining ground, and Martin isn’t.

    Admittedly, Benioff and Weiss are only translating half of A Storm of Swords (book three) to the screen for Game of Thrones season 3; the second half will likely constitute the whole of S4. On top of that, the events of A Feast For Crows and A Dance With Dragons play out concurrently, which makes adapting their combined tally of 1,824 pages somewhat complicated. In other words, the showrunners have their work cut out for them as HBO’s Game of Thrones soldiers on – especially since there’s no telling how long The Winds of Winter and A Dream of Spring, the last chapter in the series, will end up being.

    But they clearly have the less daunting task, and their working relationship with HBO guarantees that they’ll output a season a year, whereas with Martin, fans will get The Winds of Winter when they get it. It’s also very much worth noting that Benioff and Weiss have both expressed a desire to see Game of Thrones go as long as nine seasons, which isn’t outside the realm of possibility depending on the size of the unfinished books and how A Feast For Crows and A Dance With Dragons are adapted. If Martin doesn’t speed things up, he’s going to find himself with an incomplete manuscript and a TV series with nowhere to go.

    Ultimately, Martin’s just affirming something that’s been a real concern for quite some time, but it’s encouraging to see him confront the problem head-on. Now we’ll just have to wait and see if he manages to cross the finish line before Benioff and Weiss overtake him.

    Looking forward to Vikings as well spliff. Just finished watching S01 start to finish a few weeks ago.

    It's a good show but you can tell the lack of a Game of Thrones budget. Also weird to like the mindless killers who hold life in such low regards. Anti-Hero's indeed!
    I'm not saying it was Aliens, but it was Aliens!

    My apologies BUT:

    OH Boy! Joy of Joys! Another fucking Cable Soap Opera is coming back on for another season!! From the Sopranos on, I have not seen one of these shows stay fresh and interesting beyond the second season. Too many fantastical plot artifacts after that. would be nice if these TV producers/executives/writers had to balls to walk away while the gettin' is good. I've given up watching them, Guess I miss out on some stellar conversations about TV shows though.

    The point is, they are following the books, they don't have the option of fantastical plot artifacts. Anyway, Breaking Bad was fantastic all the way through.

    Yep. Looking forward to season 4 also. Its a shame so much detail was missed out though (I.e. back stories behind the characters). I guess the producers dont think Joe pablic can handle anything too complex.

    Another good series. Filmed by the Canadians I believe.

    Its a shame they havent serialised Bernard Cornwells "Saxon stories" ( cracking books). Maybe its just a matter of time, as they did his Sharpe series.

    I know what you mean, but it's not easy to follow the different strands as is, if you haven't read the books.

    These are good to watch in the interim especially if you haven't read the books...

    You can skip the annoying seppo's preamble for the first 10 minutes and get straight into it.

    I must confess to suffering withdrawals and have just downloaded the audio book. The chap reading it is a legend.
