Season Four!!!

Spain
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
As other have already stated, the high piracy has as much (if not more) to do with HBO's policies than it has to do with some moral failing among us unwashed masses.

I suspect that here in the U.S., the piracy rate would go down significantly if HBO simply allowed episodes to be purchased from iTunes (or whatever source they choose) on a per-episode basis as they come out OR if HBO allowed people to subscribe to HBOGo without requiring them to also be cable subscribers. But sadly, HBO seems to believe it is in their business interests to tightly control the release of its content and to make it frustratingly painful for people who either don't want or can't afford cable to watch shows like GoT.

Just my two cents.
