I assumed it was 'a' prequel not 'the'  prequel.

Prequel pulled by HBO  :sad:

They should take whatever coin they had set aside for that nonsense and give us an entirely new 8th season instead.

Didn't say either just prequel, sounds reading between the lines the pilot was terrible and a feel of Downtown Abbey set in the middle ages. Got a feeling HBO want Martin involved after season 8 fiasco and maybe moving on to the Targaryen version with Martin at the helm. Hasn't helped that DB&DW admitted yesterday that they had lost the plot and didn't know what was happening.

Maybe an idea, I personally thought season 8 was ok but certainly rushed. Think unless Martin is at the helm from start to finish they may actually pull the plug full stop as HBO are certainly running scared after the criticism from season 8.

I meant you're right, I just saw the headline. I know at one point they had multiple options but reading the story it's the main one that got approved.

Fire and Blood is perfect for a tv adaptation.  It's written like a history, so all the main plot points are there already, all they need to do is fill out the character development, etc.

Agree or (which they won't as be hard to fit in younger versions of characters) the Mad King/Robert Baratheon Rebellion (War of the Usurper)

:lol:  Can't believe they announced it literally an hour after I made this post.  If you're listening HBO, another season of Deadwood would be great.

D&D fired from Star Wars and GRRM-led spinoff announced on the same day.  :sweetjesus:

I mean, everything that was originally concoted in GRRMs mind and not p*ssed out by D&D holds up.
But only in their dreams can men be truly free. It was always thus and always thus will be.

The last book came out the same week I graduated from undergrad.  Since then, I've been on the dole for a year, worked in a pub for a year, started a PhD, finished a PhD, spent time working in Coventry and Scotland, moved to America for a few years, and moved back from America.  Seriously, what the f*** is he doing?  :lol:

This is the best scene that wasn't taken from the books.

Game of thrones season 8 should have ended as follows......

Screen goes black with the text several hundred years later at the bottom.

Scene starts with young boy getting into bed demanding to be told the story of the boy jon who didnt want to be king. the 'old nan' type woman then starts the story of the young boy jon and his heroic acts in war and flying on dragons and romance with the girl he killed at the end.

Then suddenly, his dad bursts into the room to kiss his son goodnight and the son notices that hes dressed to go out with his sword and asks why.

the dad says that he's got to go and execute an army deserter who killed his fellow soldiers. Why did he kill them the son asks, i dont know replies the dad but the deserter says it wasnt him but someone dressed in white with blue eyes.

The boy and his dad look amused while the 'old nan' woman looks on anxious.....
