As the Game of Thrones drama TV series follows the storylines set up in A Song of Ice and Fire, spears back to the time of dragons, castles and kings, we ought to be glad it isn’t heavy on the use of old English, or Shakespearean narratives.
In fact, the series has captivated a huge audience, interweaving through various events of European history. Now that the season 7 has been reportedly delayed, and that only 13 to 15 episodes remain, fans are hoping for a spin-off or an ensuing full movie.
Game of Thrones writer, George R. R. Martin said in an interview that a movie is quite possible, and that the story is so rich with plots and storylines, so a full movie would not be difficult to make.
“There is certainly no lack of material,” Martin said.
However, GoT co-creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, ruled out an extension of the series, fearing the story, regardless of its strength at present, may not be able to hold anymore if continued.
The sixty episodes of Game of Thrones that runs through six seasons got its audience hooked. It could be the worst feeling, if you follow the series, knowing you’ve loved season 6 so much, and the next will be delayed… as warned that winter is coming.
Thank goodness we have Samuel Jackson to listen to for seven minutes. For those who want to review the series all over again, or, for those who are just trying to catch up, Samuel Jackson will make it easy for you.
And not only will his recap is entangled from the series’ complexities, it is expressed in lots of vulgar languages too. So perhaps, that makes it more relatable. It can be as petulant as the boy king Joffrey.
He fills in phrases like “F_ck those dragons! Focus!” and “Okay, you want to see a dragon m*therf_cker?”
He refers to political motives by saying “Everybody thinks they should sit on the Iron Throne!” Criticizes Cerseis’ leadership in a single statement, “Aha, the people,” she tells Tyrion. “You think I care?”
To simplify is genius. Now listen to Samuel Jacksons m*therf_ckin’ 7-minute recap.
