One More Peek at Season Four

HBO unveiled another trailer for season four tonight, just before the finale of TRUE DETECTIVE.  (And what a helluva series that was).

For those poor souls who do not have HBO, as a public service, here you go:

I loved it, myself.  But I'm hardly an objective audience.

Can't wait to see season 4! My poor soul totally happy to see this trailer :)

Those siege lines are a thing of beauty. And True Detective's season-ending dialogue about darkness vs. light definitely jives with GoT's ice vs. fire theme.

Quick spoiler-free question regarding the series, if you don't mind: was Robert Baratheon's post-rebellion claim to the throne based primarily on his heritage or was it rather right by conquest? It seems the prevailing attitude is that it's the former, but I always got the impression that his heritage was purely a coincidence.

Re: Giddy
I think when planing the rebellion they chose Robert as the king because he had the closest connection to the Targeryens, his great grandmother or something like that, pretty sure this is in the books.
So if Ned or Jon Arryn had been closer relatives of the Targeryens then either of them would have been the king.

Re: Giddy
Both I think. It's officially his right as having dragon blood on him and being the firstborn -- Aerys and Steffon, Bob's father, were first cousins --, but he really likes to say it was his warhammer. Succession laws are complicated, and fickle. The Dance of the Dragons exemplifies it pretty well.

Absolutely magnificent, George. The new shots and scenes are superb, visual quality remains if not exceeds that of season three.
So excited to see the season start.

Wow, that's just perfect. Really love the trailer, and that thing of "keeping your foes confused", that's just what i wanted to hear this morning

The GoT-trailers have the best music!
I am so much looking forward to the new season, the scenes look fantastic!

Finally we saw a glimpse of a really important city! Can't wait to see season 4!!!!

I am torn. I really, really want season 4 to get here and yet, once it's here, there's only a short time before its over. So I guess I'm both happy and sad although at the moment more happy.

Sigh...I know...I am messed up.

Crazy excited! Can't wait for Season 4. Also very excited to come up on the 24th and catch the end of Season 3 at the Jean Cocteau. My wife is a GoT convert now so here we come and hopefully we will get in and be able to thank you in person.

Or at least wave.

Awesome, and looks like we're gonna see Braavos, if I'm not mistaken!

Can you confirm anything on Coldhands? Seems like D&D are leaving him out. :(

All the best to you Mr. Martin!

Just curious...besides the premiere episodes, do you get to see the other episodes in advanced? Or is the date they air the first time you see them?

I am one poor soul...
...Made richer after I watched all three episodes of the GoT. Looking forward to season 4... :)

book please!
I don't watch the TV series, I just read the books, and I'm starting to have a sort of abstinence syndrome...
More books please! Greetings from Argentina

True detective was amazing! I wonder if they'll do a season two with different actors. Though I'll miss Marty and cohl! Just can't see them being up to more cases.

Oh my, the Titan of Bravos scene is quite awe-inspiring!
Sooo excited. It's like the countdown to Christmas. You should bring out an advent calendar to mark off the days to each series' premiere. Fans could open little windows daily to reveal a GOT scene or object or character. You do realise if you published "Masha Heddle's Laundry Lists & Small-clothes Stain Removal Guide" it'd be a best seller? Need to go and take one of my anti-geek pills, & according to family & friends, get a life.

not having HBO
I'd be more than willing to pay HBO directly for their streaming service, HBO Go. I'm not about to pay ComCast for access to HBO though, I'm already paying them for access to the internet.

The Trailer Scares me.. I sit here waiting impatiently for the winds of winter... and i'm afraid that the show might just get the watchers and readers to a common level.

But the Trailer is Brilliant! I'm just so damn happy i got to see Braavos!!!

Yeah, it appears this season is delving into AFFC and DWD territory. I would really prefer not to see then ending of the series on HBO. Please please please, don't let this happen.
Mar. 11th, 2014 06:39 pm (UTC)
Can't wait to see S4. !

Wilding generals with their leader Mance Rayder. Winter is coming and these bad ass Wildings are gearing up for a fight.

Mar. 20th, 2014 12:09 am (UTC)
Can't wait for Season 4 and The Winds of Winter!!!
Keep up the good work, George, we all appreciate it. :)

You've probably already heard this one, but George Takei just posted it on Facebook and it got a good chuckle out of me:

Why doesn't George R. R. Martin use Twitter?

Because he already killed all 140 characters.
