Thanks to HBO Asia, fans of Game of Thrones were treated to the premiere of Season 4 before it screened in the States on last Friday! That’s a big ‘first’ for people in Singapore who can’t claim such bragging rights often with a global TV series.

Here are some spoiler-free points from the first episode:

  1. Excellent acting, more depth for the characters still alive (Arya, hang in there)
  2. More witty quotes, not just from our fave (Tyrion) Lannister “if you’re looking for justice, you have come to the wrong place”
  3. Stunning sets that look like a thousand postcard pictures… even the death scenes are amazing
  4. Dragons will play a bigger role in this Season as implied from the get-go
  5. The ‘war is not over’. Nothing short of action and great visual storytelling pace

Depending on where you grab your Game of Thrones fix from, the Blu-ray buy from Amazon is always the most ideal way to show support to the series.

After attending the preview, I realized how simple it could possibly be to cosplay as a character from the show


The new season of Game of Thrones premieres in Asia Sunday, April 13 at 10pm on HBO / HBO HD (StarHub TV Ch 601). But if you’re a resourceful fellow, you’ve probably already caught the first episode!
