Get out your nerd boners, everyone: there’s a new preview for HBO’s “Game of Thrones” (premiering April 17th). This video gives us a rough explanation of the land of Westeros and the different realms where the story takes place (if you’re a visual learner, you may find this large map handy). While I have some idle complaints about the book, I have to admit that it looks like HBO has done an excellent job of bringing it to the small screen, and I look forward to an exciting season of gratuitous violence and nudity with side helpings of dwarves and incest. Hey, I’m a simple man with simple tastes.
I also enjoy these preview videos because I can’t get enough of author George R.R. Martin. He looks like the father of all movie bloggers. If that guy didn’t grow up jerking off to the Lord of the Rings books, I’ll eat my grungy old pageboy cap.
I want more like this!
