A Game of Thrones Community
Sunday 9:00 PM on HBO (Returning July 16, 2017)

It's Game of Thrones Week here at TV.com because I just declared it so! Season 4 debuts this Sunday, April 6, and the only way we'd be more excited were if Khal Drogo rose from the dead to plop King Joffrey down on a sharp stake, bum-first. But even our favorite shows have teensy tiny flaws and "complications" that sometimes stand out, especially for the casual viewer. 

The folks at Screen Junkies are in the business of making "Honest Trailers" for such shows, and today they finally went after HBO's fantasy epic. And it's spectacular. Give your funny bone a rub, check your defensiveness at the door, and take a look at this very spoilery (for Seasons 1 through 3) honest take on Game of Thrones

Yep, I'll be referring to Ser Jorah as Lord Friend Zone from now on.

Game of Thrones returns for Season 4 this Sunday at 9pm on HBO! Get pumped!

This is just awesome! Almost choked laughing. I'm amongst friends so I'm happy to admit that I don't know all the characters names so that "10 characters whose names you know" sums me up.

They finally did it! People have been asking for a GOT Honest Trailer for ages. You can't deny it, these guys are funny and their trailers are usually very honest.

This ones another great example!

Hahahaha incredible. Regarding R + L = J bit I really hope show take a dive into the past and show us some flashback. Non book readers are totally clueless about that.

We were supposed to find out about jon's mom in book 5 but it wasn't in there so hopefully its one of the scenes that got pushed to book 6.

Didnt the White Walkers and the dead army reach the wall at then end of season 1? What have they been doing.

Nope they reached fist of first men at the end of season 2. And moreover shows take one year to make one season. But in books time difference is not that big between incidents. So a lot of things are happening at the same time. That's why a confusion over time period is bound to happen. And on side note it really makes me worry for Bran's character as he has grown too fast.

Need to watch it again but i remember in the first episode of season 2 after that white walker looked at Sam they were walking towards the the wall that Jon, Ingrid and the wildlings eventually climbed.

Im guessing Khaleesi will come in EXTREMELY handy when it comes to fighting the white walkers. Dragon flame and the fire capable of forging weapons.

And one more thing it was season 3.

Ermm no it wasn't wall. It was the fist of first men where Rangers led by commander Mormont had made camp. And regarding Khaleesi - Well thats everyone's hope.

I'm assuming they are still crossing: it's a really big army and they few Night's Watch men that survived Mormont are all stuck at Castle Black (and about to be attacked by wildlings).

The Realm is doomed if it depends on the Wall to stop the Whithe Walkers.
Reply

Well the wall does contain magic that assists in keeping the White Walkers out. But I doubt it'll keep them out for much longer

I remember Lord Friend Zone. Couldn't have a better-suited name.

Hey, I knew the actual names of ALL those characters, AND their official titles. How do you like that?!

Fringe, maybe you have fun with this, it's about the houses, not the characters though. I was surprised how many I got right from my memories of the books and the show so far :

... So good. God bless Screen Junkies.

Biggest takeaway from this: "God! If he doesn't die this season, I'm going to f*cking kill him myself! F*cking hate that kid!!!"

Get in line, Honest Trailer Guy...

I'm glad I am not the only one to sense the potential of Warwick Davis eventually assasinating Peter Dinklage.

Ha! Funny you say that and funny its April fools cuz I remember last yr April fools David and Dan (GoT show runners) held a press conference saying that Warwick was taking the place of Peyer as Tyrion, I think they said Peter wanted too much money/he had numerous other projects in the works, and you can imagine i was screaming at my computer screen but then at the end they were like April fools! I almost died lol

Yeah, Screen Junkies is a very dangerous YouTube channel - a vortex that will eat up all the free times you have in a day if you're not careful.

Don't go to CinemaSins - same deal... oh and HISHE too. You start watching those channel on Wednesday night, then, all of a sudden, it's Sunday morning, you're hungry, sleeping and smell really bad.

You have been warned.

Casual not know Sir Rodrik Motherfucking Cassel. As a super fan I have a hard time wrapping my head around not knowing every character's name, I've seen every episode so many times by now, read the books, read and re-read the wikis, it's all cemented in my mind like two plus two at this point.

Not as good as some of the others they've done... I was actually really looking forward to Honest Trailer doing one, but that didn't really rip into the show too much, which is a shame, because it does have the potential to be put under some scrutiny.

Personally I'm surprised that the series is so popular, to really get a grasp on any of the most intricate plots you would really have to read all the books and watch the seasons several times, which is not something a casual viewer does. You'd think it would turn people off.

I agree. Plus I thought the actual trailer would be way harsher and funnier. Considering it's Honest Trailers/Screen Junkies, they were actually pretty tame with this one. I guess they were afraid of fan backlash.
It's because of the BEEEWWWBBBS though.
I'd like to see what would happen if GOT just stopped nudity altogether, I wonder how many viewers they'd lose...:-/
