Maybe it is a good time to end “Game of Thrones” on HBO but still, a big screen movie is a possibility…

I’ve watched “Game of Thrones – Season 7” over the weekend, and I thought it was the best season in the series so far. Some big shockers this season. I watched the season pretty quick ’cause there were only 7 episodes this season instead of the usual 10. I won’t reveal big spoilers of Season 7, of course. You probably already know everything that happened this Season since spoilers are a huge problem on the internets anyways, lol.

Anyways, maybe it is a good time to end “Game of Thrones” on HBO ’cause why? Many of the series actors and actresses are starting to become big movie stars. They’re becoming bigger than the show itself… most notably actors such as Jason Momoa (who played Drogo in the first season), Emilia Clarke and Peter Dinklage. Those three have been starring in some pretty big movies on the big screen lately. There are other actors in the series who have been getting some pretty big movie roles lately. For example, the guy who plays Jaime Lannister who goes by the name of Nikolaj Coster-Waldau can be seen in movies like “Oblivion” and “Gods of Egypt”, the woman who plays Brienne Maid of Tarth who goes by the name of Gwendoline Christie can be seen as Cpt. Phasma in Star Wars “7 & 8”, the guy who plays Little Finger whose real name is Aidan Gillan can be seen in “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword”, Sansa Stark whose real name is Sophie Turner was Jean Grey in “X-Men: Apocalypse” and I’m sure you’ll recognize GOT stars in other films too.

It loos like the actors in the cast want to move on to other projects. The show helped the actors & actresses make a name for themselves. You won’t miss the cast at all as they’ll always be around.

Anyhow, I can’t see GOT ending for good. Maybe they’ll do a reunion season sometime in the future or a big screen movie. I prefer a big screen movie ’cause there has been a lot of talk of a GOT featured film over the years… I can see that happening. It wasn’t the first time big TV shows got turned into big screen movies most notably: “Star Trek”, “Sex In the City”, “Mission Impossible”, “The A-Team”, “Charlie’s Angels”, “The X-Files” and many others. That can happen with Game of Thrones too. A big screen “Game of Thrones” movie would be cool.

GOT’s is a great series, though. I’ve been with them from the very beginning and I still watch. Looking forward to the final season which we won’t see until next year. Now if only George R.R. Martin would hurry up and release book 6 already!!!

Why we gotta wait for Game of Thrones – Season 8 the final season in 2019? Is it so HBO can give George R.R. Martin time to release “The Winds of Winter”???? Yes, probably!

Well HBO announced when the final Season of “Game of Thrones” which will be Season 8 to be premiered sometime in 2019. No official release date confirmed yet, but I believe there is a pretty good reason for that. They want to give George R. R. Martin more time to finish up Song of Ice and Fire – Book 6 “The Winds of Winter” so I think that book is probably gonna come out sometime this year.

HBO wants to give George some time to finish up the book, release it, give fans some time to read it and the writers can quickly write the scripts for 10 episodes before filming begins. They have plenty of time to get it all done. The book will definitely be out before the final season and I can’t wait.

I’m a HUGE fan of the books and the HBO TV series. I’ve read all the books so far and saw all the seasons except for Season 7 which I’m about to start this weekend. I have Season 7 on BluRay.

Yeah, George R. R. Martin is a pretty liberal guy politically and the actors of the show are all liberals but who cares. They’re still good books and good shows. I don’t care about the creators political views. I try to keep politics and entertainment separate as best as possible. I don’t live in a bubble like most conservatives.

When George releases “The Winds of Winter” this year, you can betcha I’ll go to Barnes and Noble to pick up a copy right away. I bought book 5 “A Dance With Dragons” as soon as it came out. When will “The Winds of Winter” finally come out? Hopefully it’ll come out in the Spring/Summer time. I’m probably gonna end up re-reading all the Song of Ice and Fire books before it comes out.

This is still a good series. I’m still loyal to “Game of Thrones”. Never gave up on them. It’s disappointing that HBO wants to end GOT at Season 8, but everybody the cast and crew probably wants to move on and I can’t blame them. They spent half of their lives working on this show.

Hey George R.R. Martin, take your time with “Winds of Winter” and make it great!

People are still begging George R.R. Martin to release book 6 of the Game of Thrones book series titled, the “Winds of Winter”. Fans and critics are complaining that George is taking way too long.

Well I’d say, he should take as long as he takes! I give a lot of kudos to George for taking his time because maybe he wants the next book to be really good? I’ve read all the books so far and saw all the seasons of the TV show. Well, I still haven’t seen GOT “Season 5” yet which will come out on DVD/BluRay later this year.

I’m still a huge GOT fanatic and I can’t wait for the next book but I’m being patient. Other people should be patient too. Let him make it a really good one. He just wants to take his time with it.

The thing with writing books is writers don’t finish stories just because their fans want them to finish it. The story itself finishes on its own. It’s all up to the story on whether it wants to end or not. Just be patient and George will be done with the book whenever he’s ready to be done.

George R.R. Martin warns “Games of Thrones” fans that he plans on killing off more important characters for the upcoming books…

Some of you may know that I’m a huge Game of Thrones fan. Love the books and love the TV show. Some of you know that writer, George R.R. Martin is not afraid to kill off characters that everybody likes.

Well, George warns fans that he plans on killing off more important characters for future “Song of Ice and Fire” novels. This probably means that he might plan on killing off important characters like Tyrion, Daenerys Targaryen, Jon Snow, Arya Stark, Littlefinger, or even The Hound.

I know GOT fans are getting pissed and frustrated that George takes forever to finish the next book but let him take his time. The less time he takes, the better the stories get. Sometimes, less is always more when writing stories.

I have all the GOT books so far and I have the first 3 seasons on DVD so I’m a huge fan of this franchise, indeed. I haven’t seen GOT “Season 4” ’cause I don’t have HBO anymore and I’m just waiting for Season 4 to come out on DVD.

I love this franchise so much, though. The stories are addicting and so are the characters. If you’re not into “GOT’s” yet, what are you waiting for?

In defense of incest in “Game of Thrones”…

I haven’t been watching “Game of Thrones – Season 4” on HBO well because I don’t have HBO. I had to get rid of it. I still love Game of Thrones books and the TV show, though and will watch “Season 4” when it releases on DVD.

The thing is, George R.R. Martin and HBO are under fire ’cause of their heavy use of “incest” rape from last Sunday’s episode. I won’t reveal any big spoilers, though, at least I try not to but I gotta get this off my chest.

There’s a lot of internet controversy over this. The “incest” obsession is upsetting a lot of fans. It’s upsetting a lot of people who read the books.

My thoughts? The “Game of Thrones” TV show is no stranger to controversy but this time they take controversy to extremes. I think using incest is a pretty good idea. In the real world, “incest” is wrong but in Westeros, in George’s mind, incest is alright in that world. There’s no law in incest in Westeros, I believe. Why are so many people surprised of the “incest” when there were already incest scenes in the beginning of Season 1??? Why is there “incest” in “Game of Thrones”? Does George have a fascination with it?

I love how “Game of Thrones” upsets people with dark stuff. First the Red Wedding and now this. If this dark and controversial stuff wasn’t in the books, then people wouldn’t be interested. That’s how I got interested in “Game of Thrones”. I loved the unpredictability and the shock-value through the stories.

I know the TV show is way different than the books but after thinking about it a while… it’s the right thing to do. I used to believe they should “tone” it down with the obsessive sex scenes but after thinking about it a while, I have no problem with the sex scenes and nudity all over it now. This stuff needs to be in there or else the show wouldn’t work. This is why the show is the highest rated TV show ever. The show is pretty addictive.

People want to see this stuff. Sex and controversy sells. That’s all there is to it.

I wish I was watching “Season 4” but again, don’t have HBO so I’ll wait for DVD release. Sounds like a good season so far from what I’m reading. I’m a huge Game of Thrones fan. Love the books and the TV show. I plan on re-watching the first three seasons.

George R.R. Martin releases sample chapter for “Winds of Winter” (Game of Thrones book 6)

I’m a huge Game of Thrones fan. Love the books but HBO could do a better job with the show. Honestly, I still am a fan of the TV show, I just wish they would improve the writing. I don’t like how the TV show is leaving a lot of stuff out and changing the story around, altering characters. I think the books are way better.

I’m looking forward to the next Thrones book, though. Which would be book 6 of the Song of Ice and Fire series: “Winds of Winter”.

George R.R. Martin released a chapter from the book which I haven’t read yet but will get around to it. The cover of the next book have been released too:

http://shelf-life.ew.com/2014/03/26/winds-of-winter-sample-chapter/

I’m not sure when the book is coming out ’cause the article didn’t say of a release date but I’m sure the book will come out sometime later this year.

Seriously… if you like the TV show on HBO, I’d suggest you read the books ’cause like I said, the books are way better. It’s way more intense and unpredictable than the show.

Usually George takes a long time in between books but I think he’s in a hurry now ’cause of the show. He doesn’t want to keep HBO waiting for the next book.

Just a warning before everyone gets all excited for “Game of Thrones – Season 3″…

Yes, so “Game of Thrones – Season 3” premiere is coming this Sunday, Easter night. This Sunday night on Easter will be a great night for TV for sure. Not only the premiere of “Game of Thrones” will be on, we also have “Walking Dead – Season 3 finale”, and Episode 5 of “Vikings”. I love all three of these shows, but I still stand by it that, “Walking Dead – Season 3” was pretty disappointing and went downhill for me. Back to “Game of Thrones – Season 3”, I can understand everyone getting stoked for the  new season but…

… this season of GOT, is not going to be what you expect. I’ve just finished re-reading Book Three, “Storm of Swords” in which, this Season is going to be adapted from. There’s going to be some big and shocking moments this Season. Just to warn you there is not going to be happy endings for some major characters of the series. This Season will for sure, piss everyone off so much, that you will be pulling your hair out of your skulls. Hint: A few of your favorite characters are gonna get killed off, and I’m not saying who. This is gonna be a big season and controversial, for sure. It will be a ratings booster for HBO, and this season will get everyone talking. I’ve read book 3 and I know what happens with the main characters. Don’t worry though, Daeny and Tyrion don’t get killed off, but big things happen to them too. I don’t want to give too much away. Just wanted to warn you all that this is not gonna be an easy season to watch.

I’m looking forward to it, though. It’s gonna be interesting to see how they’re gonna pull this off. This Sunday is gonna be a good night of TV. I’m looking forward to seeing how the Walking Dead will end and I’m looking forward to seeing what’s gonna happen next on “Vikings” after episode 4 last Sunday. If you haven’t started watching, “Vikings” yet, they have all the episodes of Season 1 so far on the History channel website, if you want to catch up. “Vikings” is becoming addicting and starting to get intense.

TV used to be garbage but it’s slowly starting to improve with all the good shows coming out. We still have the final season of “Breaking Bad”, and “Dexter”, coming this Summer, so I’m looking forward to those too.
