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:
- Excellent acting, more depth for the characters still alive (Arya, hang in there)
- More witty quotes, not just from our fave (Tyrion) Lannister “if you’re looking for justice, you have come to the wrong place”
- Stunning sets that look like a thousand postcard pictures… even the death scenes are amazing
- Dragons will play a bigger role in this Season as implied from the get-go
- 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!
