Game of Thrones Season 3 is coming. The new season returns on March 31st at 9pm.
Let me start this off by stating that more times than not, I HATE popular things. Whether it is music, or tv shows, or books, or movies or whatever… if it has a ton of buzz going around it and its something that the masses consider a “must-do” or “must-see”, etc. I emphatically will not.
Actually, I’m so stubborn about it, that its almost to my detriment. #Realtalk, there are about 4 or 5 people that I truly will listen to when they tell me I should watch something, and everyone else who is not on that list tends to lead me down a path that I wish I hadn’t gone. Trust me when I tell you that I am speaking from experience. I’m sure that you are asking yourself, dafuq does that have to do with GOT? ? ?
Check out the Season 3 trailer after the jump…..
My stubborness when it comes to these things has made me miss some reaaaaally good TV that I didnt discover until later, for example, LOST. I wasnt on that show until about season 4 when things started to die down, and then I was hooked after three episodes and had to get my on-demand on and watch all seasons to catch up in about 4 days. Same thing with 24. I had no idea how good of a show that was until someone literally said, “HERE! Take the dvds and just start watching them!” … turns out, I spent the next week suspending my disbelief while watching a 5’6 Keifer Sutherland deliver throat punches and pull off impossible tasks that were not humanly possible in time and space.
Game of Thrones was like this. Everyone was loving on the show and started talking about it and I purposefully avoided watching because I felt I would be let down….I hadnt read the books. I wasnt into Mid-century dramas. Who cares about dragons and sword fights and I would have no care for what is going on…. then one day I caught a nap and happened to wake up with my television on Home Box Office, and it was in the middle of some scene where Emilia Clarke aka Daenerys Targaryen, a.k.a. Khaleesi was bucket naked with crazy white hair! I was intrigued. Then about 5 minutes later, some other chick was naked. Then a few minutes later there was one of the illest fatalities I had ever seen on television. Needless to say, I. Was. Hooked.
This show is awesome. Trust me when I tell you that you will like it. If I were you, right after I watch this trailer, I would go to my on-demand machine and watch every episode up until the season premier at the end of March. You will love this show, I promise!
