One extra month isn't that big of a deal
Nah. I'm tired of waiting. I'ts been a year and I'll find out how Avengers ends first. My nerdboner is becoming flaccid
there are plenty of other nerdy shows out there to tame that boner.
Shit, just go read a book
Exactly, ill.... that's like a pizza lover being stuck overseas for over a year without access to a decent pizza, and is told he has to wait one or two more months to eat a pizza, and the pizza lover says, "no, I don't wanna wait any longer for a pizza.... my pizza craving will diminish".
Entertainment Weekly season 8 cover for November 9, 2018 issue:
why would one want a scoop on the final season and a mention of an epic battle?
is Entertainment for the people that like to watch an entire movie during the trailer?
And fairly minor spoilers from the article in that magazine about how season 8 starts out, basically just the first episode in very broad and vague strokes (obviously, don't click if you don't want to know):
Spoiler: Season 8 Episode 1 in Very Broad and Vague Strokes
Season 8 opens at Winterfell with an episode that contains plenty of callbacks to the show's pilot. Instead of King Robert's procession arriving, it's Daenerys and her army. What follows is a thrilling and tense intermingling of characters — some of whom have never previously met, many who have messy histories — as they all prepare to face the inevitable invasion of the Army of the Dead.
How these fan favorites get along drives much of the drama this season (okay, here's one specific tease from the premiere — Sansa isn't thrilled that Jon bent the knee to his fancy new Targaryen girlfriend, at least not at first).
I read something elsewhere the EW article also mentions the final episode will have a new location never seen before and that it'll surprise some people with what characters show up. That's way more of an interesting tidbit than the Winterfell stuff which we all knew was gonna happen anyway.
I have a minor theory (it's just my guess, not anything official) regarding the minor spoiler above:
Spoiler: My guess is...
One of those "thrilling and tense" confrontations will involve Sam and Daenerys over his father Randyll and brother Dickon opposing her and her execution of them.
Hotpie will deal the final blow and become king.
I started watching season 1 last night.....this will be my third time through all of the seasons. Gotta get caught back up.
get a life, dude.
I take it you don't watch movies you liked a lot multiple times? Especially a series as long as this....there are many nuanses that require another look.
But ... it's always good to read someone on thoop telling me to get a life.
I only post here when I am sitting at work at my desk...helps to pass the time.
but no, I don't normally rewatch movies or shows unless I am bored. I have only reread a couple books because I liked them that much.
there are too many new things out there for me to take in.
Does anyone think by waiting so long a lot of people are gonna lose interest? Like I know we have the diehards where it doesn’t matter if it’s four years away they’ll still be super excited the whole time but that’s not everyone. I’m sure a lot of the audience with it not airing this year or next year in the same month as it had been will almost forget about it.
I don't think anyone is going to lose interest.
Always a possibility, but it could wind up working for them.
Anticipation is still pretty high and we are months away.
The one caveat is HBO has every episode On Demand, so as much as ill wants to watch new things, I like re-watching older episodes and often picking up on new things, or nuances that Jonvi alluded to.
I think I can watch Hardhome or Battle of the Bastards at any one given time.
in my opinion, if you watched the show and liked it enough that you wanted it a second time but haven't read the books, you are doing yourself a disservice.
however I can see rewatching an episode here and there...but not entire seasons.
I don't have the patience or literative imagination to read guys like HRRM or Tolkien. Maximum verbosity. But their movies/TV shows work very well for me.
I've watched the series in its original viewing. I re-watched every episode through season 3 leading into Season 4 when my wife got interested. I re-watched every epiosde through season 5 when my daughter got interested. I loved it. Really got a sense for the depth and how storylines/characters were intertwined with one another.
But, I'm kind of simple like this. Very neanderthalic, if you will. Sure, there are certain episodes that you can kind of fast forward through, but I still it find very entertaining to go back to the first season or the battle at Blackwater.
It's official ... Season 8 will being airing in April of 2019.
With the announcement, a teaser was also released.
It contains no new footage.
