That is enough to give anyone goose bumps :)
I love it and can't wait!
Jan. 12th, 2013 07:49 am (UTC)
So glad to finally see how the three eyed crow looks!
Jan. 12th, 2013 10:35 am (UTC)
they showed it already in Season 1; 2 or 3 times ;)

Ahhhh...... just enough to bring back the pain of separation. Shall go back to re-re-re-re-reading A Dance with Dragons... Waiting is torture!!!

So excited to see how season 3 pans out!

This is in my opinion the worst teaser of the series so far. From my perspective, seeing modern buildings in a video made for an Ice and Fire themed show just doesn't look right. Nevertheless, I can't wait for season 3 to begin!

?? The theme is about the world of fantasy blending with reality. As it does quite literally.

That is an awesome, awesome teaser.
Jan. 12th, 2013 10:15 am (UTC)
I love this song!
Jan. 12th, 2013 10:34 am (UTC)
So excited!

Holy fuck. The song gave me goosebumps. Rains of Castamere. :|

It was also on the credits of Season 2 Episode 9. (Blackwater)

that song gave me goosebumps, just an amazing reminder of the things to come

Can't wait (especially for the reaction of the non-readers on THAT episode).

By the way: if you ever teamed up with Moffat and Kripke, you could make an Evil Writer Council and take over the world. :)

Video and song
Excuse my French, but that was fucking awesome.

OMG I cannot wait! It is kind of odd that Winter is coming on GoT but I have to wait until Spring to see it.
Jan. 13th, 2013 02:38 am (UTC)
Good point. This made me laugh. :)

What an awesome & unique teaser! At first it seemed odd that the city-scape wasn't Westeros, but then it hits that that's what they're going after. Not what I was expecting at all! Well done HBO!
Jan. 12th, 2013 03:50 pm (UTC)
Love the use of the song. *ahem* ;-)

I am scheduling my life around the show. I was supposed to go away the weekend that it premieres but I moved the trip up a week once the start date was announced. Yaay!

I don't know if the pun is deliberate, but the beautiful red brick building at 0:23 is the famousRookery” on south La Salle St. in Chicago. It was built in 1888, and is transitional into the invention of the skyscraper. Its cast iron skeleton made much larger spans possible, so it has a beautiful, show-off atrium on the ground floor. (And it was designed by John Wellborn Root and Daniel Burnham, and the lobby later redecorated by Frank Lloyd Wright.)

The nickname precedes the building; temporary city hall was there right after the fire, in a building infested with pigeons. Crows too, allegedly, making the name a pun on the morals of Chicago aldermen . . .

Whether it was intended or not, that's awesome!

To the uninitiated, this makes GOT S3 appear to be a similar to show to The Magicians. That or its implying some new twist where half the season takes place in our world

You should become aware of two things: 1) Metaphor and 2) That five of the books (of 7) are already written and there is no 'implication' or 'twist' that isn't already known.

That song... I cannot wait...
Jan. 13th, 2013 03:35 am (UTC)
Ooooooooh, kind of creepy but gets me excited! Counting the days...

Like picking open a nearly healed wound! Can't wait though!

George, how do you feel about them straying away from your material this upcoming season and changing the setting to Earth in the year 2013?
Jan. 13th, 2013 05:42 am (UTC)
It should be great, especially when we bring in all the Wild Cards superheros for the big crossover.

I positively love that song. I sang it for days (perhaps weeks) on end after it first came out in season 2, until my friends began to abandon me. (Silly friends.)

The crow gives me goosebumps, but only because I know I'm waiting for that third eye.

But that in combination with "our world", to me, feels just jarring. I think for someone not invested in the series or the books it won't add much suspense, it's just an odd little song and a three-eyed bird. It gives the expectation of an urban fantasy.

For someone who has read the books... well, personally, I want to see more of Westeros. Add in a character or two moving from world to world and the effect implied by the text might have come through. A showing of Jon Snow with sword and armour would have given more a sense of what the series is about. Though Bran would have been more in line with the crow...

Eh, then again, I shouldn't be complaining. I'll be happily off now, to sing the Castamere tune to myself for another couple of weeks. Maybe all the way up until next season starts.
Jan. 13th, 2013 05:51 pm (UTC)
can't wait!
Jan. 13th, 2013 09:19 pm (UTC)
By jove, never felt as good to be teased, definitely. Three cheers!
