I’ve heard loads about the TV show Games of Thrones over the years, but for some reason I’ve never actually ended up watching it myself. Everyone else seems to have watched it and loves it and I kind of feel like I’m missing out on something!
The great thing is – now I’ve GoT (geddit?! ;)) NOW TV I can catch up with the entire five seasons with the boxsets available on NOW TV, plus Season 6 is starting today – so if I blast through Game of Thrones like I do some other shows, then I then go straight onto the new series without having to wait impatiently for months.
Game of Thrones starts at 9pm tonight (Monday 25th) on Sky Atlantic (which you get with NOW TV), so if you’re already caught up then you can watch Season 6 straight away. It will be simulcast with the US at 2am on Sky Atlantic (so you won’t have to worry about any of those social spoilers) and then repeated at 9pm. Plus the Catch Up episode will be available from around 3am.
If you’ve never seen or heard of Games of Thrones (how?!?!) , then here is the premise…
‘Summers span decades. Winters can last a lifetime. And the struggle for the Iron Throne continues.
It stretches from the south, where heat breeds plots, lusts and intrigues, to the vast and savage eastern lands, where a young queen raises an army. All the while, in the frozen north, an 800-foot wall of ice precariously protects the war-ravaged kingdom from the dark forces that lie beyond. Kings and queens, knights and renegades, liars, lords and honest men…all play the ‘Game of Thrones.”
It’s one of those programmes that hearing what it is all about, I wouldn’t have thought it would be so popular, but it really has become a hugely popular show and I am really looking forward to starting it and seeing why everyone else loves it so much.
