Season Four!!!

HBO has officially renewed GAME OF THRONES for a fourth season. (And I'm almost finished with the first draft of my script. No, sorry, not going to tell you which one it is).

Record ratings for our season three premiere, "Valar Dohaeris."

Also (sigh) record levels of piracy.

On other topics... no, no, Peter Dinklage is NOT being replaced by Warwick Davis in the role of Tyrion. That was just HBO's little April Fools joke. (I was so busy I forgot to make my own April Fools joke). So calm down, boys and girls. Peter is still with us.

"Piracy"
I'm an HBO subscriber for GoT, but I already have to have a cable subscription for work. I know from reading message boards and conversations around local geek circles that a lot of the "pirates" either cannot afford the $100 plus a month for a cable subscription plus HBO, or they live where the show is not aired. Most of these same people buy the DVDs as soon as they are available and would likely buy the episodes or HBOGO access directly from HBO were that available.

I couldn't tell you what percentage that actually represents, but I know access has become an issue for a lot of people.

Is it a sign of my advancing age that I consider "waiting" to be a better response than piracy?

Well, we are in the same demographic range, so maybe not?

When the new Doctor Who series started in 2005 and wasn't available here, I know a lot of people who couldn't wait until someone finally started airing it.

As long as they actually buy the discs when they come out, does it really make much of a difference? I have access to HBO Go, but if I didn't I'm not sure that I could wait a whole year to see this awesome show.
