HBO announces premiere date for Game of Thrones season 2

01.13.2012


HBO has announced that its award-winning fantasy/drama series Game of Thrones will kick off its second season on Sunday, April 1st, 2012.

The series, executive produced by D.B. Weiss and David Benioff, takes place in the fictional realm of Westeros where political intrigue, savage violence, and otherworldy threats collide in the race to rule from the iron throne. Based on the series of novels ďA Song of Ice and FireĒ by author George R.R. Martin, the show is one of the most engaging, involved, and detailed on the air.

If I could watch only one show this year it would be Game of Thrones. Itís chock full of character, violence, and has massive balls. After seeing the first season I read all of the novels up to the most current one and, believe me, you ainít seen nothiní yet. You donít need to read the books to enjoy the show as the producers have taken every step to ensure accuracy and respect to the source material, but it sure couldnít hurt as they are an amazing read.

If youíre all caught up on the book and frothing at the mouth for more, the author recently posted a sample chapter up on his official site that picks up right where the last book left off. If you want to steer clear of any spoilage, I recommend you skip the link.

Check out HBO's official site to see production videos, cast and crew bios, and a nifty character breakdown to keep you straight on who's who in the world of Westeros.

Personally, I canít wait. I think Iím going to go lock myself in a room and play Skyrim until April 1st, at which point Iíll just come out to eat a bowl of cereal, watch Game of Thrones, and then, maybe get a job and be a productive member of society. I said MAYBE.

Extra Tidbit: The role of Daenerys Targaryan is actress Emilia Clarke's (pictured) first major role and she simple SLAYS it! Also...she's naked. So, there's that.

I have nothing bad to say about this series. Every episode is amazing. Now the books on the other hand...after A Clash of Kings, it gets kinda repetitive to me. Also, killing off so many main characters (won't say who) just doesn't sit well with me.

Everyone has seen Daenerys' Tidbits...a lot

Seriously though, is she getting paid per titty per episode? With a bonus for buttocks? Cuz not even Lena Heady has gone full monty and most everyone who have seen this saw 300, so she's not that modest...
