    Other thread was for season 3. This video was released at Comic-con from HBO as a prelude to season 4. If mods want to merge this thread with the season 3 thread and have one mega thread (like the walking dead thread) by all means go ahead.

    Still sad that the Starks are getting butchered so bad...

    just watched all 3 season in about 2 weeks, thanks on demand, can't wait for season 4. the massacre atthe end with the Starks was insane.
    it reminds me of Sopranos a lot, rival families, killing each other off. a lil slow for a few episodes, then bam, 10 people die.

    This is good timing for this sort of video, because, yep, all of the major killing is done. :smile:

    Just finished the last book, so this whole thing is crawling by for me (I'm about half way done with the 3rd season).

    Descriptions of the first four episodes from season 4 have been released. Spoiler alert. IMO they are somewhat minor, but the discussion section especially seems to give some details some may not want to know. I haven't read the books, so the descriptions and discussion would be more meaningful to someone who has.

    4 weeks from tomorrow. Only 4 more weeks!

    I read all 5 books last summer before I watched a single second of the show. I've been slowly working my way through the show now, although some of the suspense is missing when you already sort of know what's going to happen.

    Can't wait to see the showdown of Oberyn Martell vs The Mountain

    I'm somewhat skeptical that old George is going to finish books 6 and 7 in a timely fashion, though. And he hasn't exactly resolved a whole lot by the conclusion of book 5, either.

    I'm definitely gonna check out True Detective via HBOgo once I resubscribe for Game of Thrones.

    I'm really looking forward to season 4 of GoT. The proverbial **** is gonna hit the proverbial fan.

    I have read the books but haven't seen any of the series yet. I plan on binge watching them to catch up but just haven't had time. Seems the Red Wedding wasn't that long ago on the show? Wondering if they will draw the series out a little to give GRRM time to crank out another book. Did see a clip of the HBO series and was a little confused, I had never quite pictured Margaery as that floozy-esque.:laugh: I'm hoping the show isn't a disappointment after reading the books, I am getting impatient waiting for the next one.

    Not to hijack the thread, but True Detective is just plain amazing. One of the best shows I've ever seen, period. I'll warn you, it's pretty dark. Think Se7en meets Silence of the Lambs, but it's fantastic.

    That said, there's still no replacing GOT. Really looking forward to it.

    This season will be the best yet, based on the total awesomeness of the source material.

    You won't be disappointed in the show, unless you are one of the crazy fans who expect an adaptation to be exactly the same as 1,000 + page books with hundreds of characters or don't recognize there are some budgetary limitations that your imagination doesn't have while reading. They have been faithful for the most part, all the book readers I know love the show too.

    Book 5 is two seasons easy…it started out as two books of the series.

    I agree, but don't understand why some of the choices were made. Like creating the character of Talisa and replacing Jeyne Westerling. What was the point of that? It doesn't really change the story, but I don't get why they did it.

    Thanks, that is good to know. I am not expecting them to be identical. I was spewing out various theories about Robb's wife that got shot down by my kids when they told me what happened on the show version, so I suspect watching will help with some of my crazy book theories.
