I like it. There's a lot of stories to tell in Westeros. I was afraid they'd go immediately to Robert's War which would have been a bit boring.

Same. I got deep into a wiki of ice and fire one time. The lore is tremendous.
I watched RAW. I thought it sucked. The usual problems and such.

Also imagine me in an A's uniform if you want to know my reaction to this news.

I’m not ready to lose this world on HBO. I’m so down for this.

What’s it about? Taking place thousands of years before the events of Game of Thrones, the series chronicles the world’s descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour. From the horrifying secrets of Westeros’s history to the true origin of the White Walkers, the mysteries of the East to the Starks of legend, only one thing is for sure: It’s not the story we think we know.


Naomi Ackie, Denise Gough, Jamie Campbell Bower, Sheila Atim

Who will it star? New casting includes: Naomi Ackie (Lady Macbeth), Denise Gough (Monday), Jamie Campbell Bower (Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald), Sheila Atim (Harlots), Ivanno Jeremiah (Humans), Georgie Henley (The Chronicles of Narnia films), Alex Sharp (How to Talk to Girls at Parties) and Toby Regbo (The Last Kingdom, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald).


Ivanno Jeremiah, Georgie Henley, Alex Sharp, Toby Regbo

These actors join Oscar-nominee Naomi Watts (21 Grams), who headlines as a charismatic socialite hiding a dark secret, and Josh Whitehouse (Poldark).

Who is behind it? Jane Goldman and GoT author George R.R. Martin are the creators of this new series, with Goldman serving as the showrunner. Both will executive produce, alongside SJ Clarkson (The Defenders, Jessica Jones, HBO’s Succession and the upcoming Star Trek installment), who will also be directing the pilot episode; James Farrell; Jim Danger Gray; Vince Gerardis; Daniel Zelman and co-executive producer Chris Symes. Martin was also an executive producer on Game of Thrones and contributed to several episode scripts.

I hope Martin has very little to do with it beyond some general ideas because hes been a detriment to the show/series for years now.
