Game of Thrones Fans: Winter Is Here...But It Brings No Snow!

Click the Above Title to read the Full Story.... 
 Its hard out there for a Game of Thrones fan.  We dare to get involved with a character, only to be forced to watch them systematically and unceremoniously killed off.  The latest victim of this phenomenon, Jon Snow, left Game of Thrones fans ready to riot after his death in the tragic season five finale.   The conspiracy theories began to fly online before his body was even cold and Snow fans have been holding out hope for some degree of resurrection for their favorite sensitive man of the nights watch.

Unfortunately, HBO executive Michael Lombardino enjoys killing dreams!   At the Television Critics Association’s summer press tour this past week Lombardino made the following statement regarding the future of the beloved Jon Snow:

“Dead is dead is dead. He be dead. Yes. Everything I’ve seen, heard and read, he is dead,” 

In other Game of Thrones news, HBO also revealed that the show will end after the eighth season.  Thats only three more epic seasons to go before we're again left with a dragon-sized hole in our collective hearts! 


The ever devoted Snow fans are still keeping hope alive that maybe the death isn't exactly pernament and that maybe he will reappear in some other form in the series.  They may have reason to be hopeful.  In fact, Game of Thrones scribe George R.R. Martin was asked about the literary death of Jon Snow by Entertainment Weekly back in 2011 to which he coyly replied "Oh, you think he’s dead, do you?"  

HBO doesn't exactly have a history of being honest with the fans anyway, so can we really trust them?  Lets look at the facts.  Jon Snow actor Kit Harington has been spotted in Belfast where Game of Thrones is filming.   The fact that they keep addressing the issue and sending messengers with death promises smells of misdirection a bit too much.  We get that a lot from movie and television studios these days, in an effort to preserve some level of surprise in a world filled with leaks and online spoilers.

What do you think, will Jon Snow be back in some form?  Or is he gone for good?

Batman v Superman Has Its KG Beast!

Why Fear the Walking Dead Will Be Must See TV

Fans of the Walking Dead have been quite spoiled by the high caliber post-apoclyptic televisionn experience that they've been afforded.  Before the Walking Dead a show with this caliber of doom would be lucky to make if off of the Sy Fy network and anywhere near a mainstream audience.   The Walking Dead has gotten so big, in fact, that a companion series titled 'Fear The Walking Dead' is set to premiere on AMC on August 23.


Fans of franchises like Star Wars are very used to the idea of an expanded universe.  The fact that the Walking Dead is taking a crack at that concept is nothing short of revolutionary for fans of cult television.  The series will feature an all new cast of characters located across the country in Los Angeles, just as the zombie outbreak is in its infancy.  The outbreak is literally going to be so much in its infancy that people mistake it for a harsh cold thats going around.


The doughy and naive characters will be fresh and confused, not battle hardened and raw like Rick Grimes and company.   We fans will get a look at a universe that has no zombies -- no walkers -- its the early dawn of the apocalypse -- the edge of insanity.  The slow build that we are bound to get into the early days of infection will be keeping us all at the edge of our seats, just waiting for the characters to finally figure out whats coming their way!  



If Fear The Walking Dead is an experiment that proves successful it could open the door to an infinite amount of stories and timelines within the Walking Dead universe alone.  All cult television shows will be taking note and watching closely to see if this brand of fan pleasing can actually work even half as well as the original series.  Imagine a Game of Thrones companion series focusing on the life of the Hound or the early days of the Stark family  The possibilities for expanded universes for fans could be endless and could easily change the face of modern television.


Fear The Walking Dead will bridge our wait between the end of summer and October 11th when the main series returns for a sixth season.

Are you excited for the new Walking Dead companion series?
