"Game of Thrones" Season 2 on HBO Coming This Sunday!

To get you into the proper mindset for the continuation of its spectacular epic series Game of Thrones, HBO has created a twenty-two minute special which you can watch right here on The Flaming Nose.  Season Two premieres this coming Sunday, April 1st at 9pm. 

Full-Length Special: You Win or You Die

HBO also offers a catch-up guide for Games of Thrones here; highly recommended if the details of all the elaborate goings-on in the complicated worlds of the various Houses of Baratheon, Lannister, Greyjoy, Stark, Taragaryen and Tully have grown a bit dim in your head.  All I know is that two of my favorite characters from the first season are no more.  The virtuous Ned Stark (Sean Bean) and the swarthy leader of the horse people Khal Drogo (played by Jason Momo) met their ends in the first season, more's the pity.  (Perhaps even more dastardly was the quick box office death last year of Momo's feature film Conan the Barbarian where he played the title role!)

Season 2 Trailer: Seven Devils

At least we have the Emmy Award-winning Peter Dinklage back as Tyrion Lannister!  He's always a delight, a treacherous, lecherous, rapier-witted force who makes every scene he's in a treat. 

Don't miss Games of Thrones as it begins its new season, beginning this Sunday on HBO!

I've been traveling all week and can't wait for the glory of GOT tonight. I've already watched my two hour Mad Men premier twice this weekend, and now look forward to the return of Thrones on HBO and The Killing on AMC. It's that time of year when our cup runneth over for great TV. Thanks for the heads up Lisa!
