But you saw a thread about a GoT prequel and thought “Oooo I better read that!”? :?


Why not? 99% of people here do it, why the strawberry float can't I?


Where did I say you couldn’t?

It’s just weird. Like the people that comment on news stories with “I DUNT CARE!!”. So why read and then bother to comment? :lol:


Again why not? What is wrong with reading something and then saying that I was not a fan of GoT and have no real interest in this. I didn't realise that posts were only meant to be showing how much people love the show.


Again where did I say you couldn’t?

My time hasn’t been wasted, I like GoT. I’m not the one reading and replying to a thread I have no interest in. :lol:

The earlier series of GoT were so much better than the recent ones. I'd even argue that season 7 was a big bag of stinky gooseberry fool. I feel though that this prequel will be poo pants also. No way will they capture the magic of the first few series again.

EDIT - Actually, the more I think about it, the more a prequel feels like a very thick, cold, disease ridden butt plug being shoved, very violenty, up my rectal passage. I thought HBO knew better than to rape but I guess I was wrong.

Could be great if they explore the eastern part of the world, which people barely know anything about. There's some really great lore for that part of the world.

No hype for this at all. If anything I’m just annoyed that George RR Martin is doing yet another project that delays his next book.
Indulgent banana split.

He doesn't know how to wrap up his loose ends or he just likes money.

I genuinely do think it’s the former.
It got away from him with Feast for Crows when he split the timelines and he’s never got it back. I genuinely don’t think we’ll see the end. The TV show will be our only denouement.

Freud would have had a field day with some of the words and analogies you've been using over the weekend.

After lengthy negotiations, Naomi Watts has signed on to lead the ensemble cast of HBO’s Game Of Thrones prequel pilot, from writer Jane Goldman and author/GOTco-executive producer George R.R. Martin.

Created by Goldman and Martin and written by Goldman based on a story by her and Martin, the untitled prequel takes place thousands of years before the events of Game Of Thrones. It chronicles the world’s descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour. And only one thing is for sure: from the horrifying secrets of Westeros’ history to the true origin of the white walkers, the mysteries of the East to the Starks of legend… it’s not the story we think we know.

The creative team behind the project is not giving away much about Watts’ character — she will play a charismatic socialite hiding a dark secret.

As much as it pains me to admit, I think you're right.

We might get a version finished by someone else a few years after he dies, a-la Wheel of Time but it won't be very good.

He's just making sure he does justice to the immensity of Cersei's victory.

Her victory celebration will take up 90% of this book and all the last book so he has to end the war in about 40 pages.

"George R.R. Martin reveals 5 new facts about HBO's Game of Thrones prequel" -

1. Westeros is divided into roughly 100 kingdoms in the prequel. “We talk about the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros; there were Seven Kingdoms at the time of Aegon’s Conquest,” Martin says. “But if you go back further then there are nine kingdoms, and 12 kingdoms, and eventually you get back to where there are a hundred kingdoms — petty kingdoms — and that’s the era we’re talking about here.” The Seven Kingdoms maintained some degree of order (at least, until war broke out). So it sounds like Westeros could be even more dangerous and chaotic and lawless than it is in GoT — like Wild West Westeros.

2. There are Starks and direwolves. The pack survives. This should be obvious given the time period (the Starks were descended from the First Men), but in case there was any doubt Martin confirms the fan-favorite family is around. “The Starks will definitely be there,” he said. And while much has been made about the fact the prequel predates dragons, that doesn’t mean there won’t be other creatures. “Obviously the White Walkers are here — or as they’re called in my books, The Others — and that will be an aspect of it,” Martin says. “There are things like direwolves and mammoths.”

3. There will not be any Lannisters — at least not at first… The prequel predates the rise of the Lannister family, Martin says. But there is another family currently residing in the future Lannister homestead. “The Lannisters aren’t there yet, but Castlery Rock is certainly there; it’s like the Rock of Gibraltar,” he says. “It’s actually occupied by the Casterlys — for whom it’s still named after in the time of Game of Thrones.” The Casterlys were supposedly swindled from their homestead by Lann the Clever — who founded House Lannister — though it’s unclear if this tale will be told in the prequel.

4. It’s a true ensemble. HBO’s cast breakdown appeared to suggest the show might be led by a trio of female leads (Naomi Watts, Naomi Ackie, and Denise Gough). Asked about this, Martin said the prequel — like Game of Thrones — is more accurately described as an ensemble story. “I hesitate to use the word ‘lead,’” Martin says. “As you know for Game of Thrones, we never even nominated anybody for lead actress or lead actor [during awards season] until recently; it was always for supporting [categories] because the show is such an ensemble. I think that will be true for this show too. We don’t have leads so much as a large ensemble cast.”

5. The show might get a slightly different title than the one you’re expecting. The prequel is still officially untitled, Martin emphasizes. In the past, the author has suggested the title The Long Night. One behind-the-scenes factor that complicated this choice is that the third episode of Game of Thrones season 8 is also titled “The Long Night.” While The Long Night remains Martin’s preferred title, there is another similar possibility being considered. “I heard a suggestion that it could be called The Longest Night, which is a variant I wouldn’t mind,” he says. “That would be pretty good.”

Will it also have a massive build-up for 7 seasons only for the ending to be amazingly gooseberry fool and filmed in the middle of a black hole?

Sean Bean needs to be shoehorned in and killed in episode 1 :shifty: .
