My Favorite Scene: Game of Thrones Season 6 (2016) “The Light of the Seven”

Game of Thrones’ sixth season was probably the strongest, offering up nothing but epic payoff as the show begins to do what George R.R. Martin clearly never will: finish the story.  Martin’s sixth book is still nowhere in sight, and he had another planned after that. I’m willing to bet the sixth book eventually comes out, but I’d be surprised if he actually ever finished the series.  HBO has done too good a job for him.  Now they’re looking at four different avenues of prequel series for after GoT is finished, and Westeros is certainly deep enough in lore to support ONE (not all four are going to get greenlit).  The seventh season and eighth season are going to be a split finale for the show, with eight episodes this year and seven episodes in 2018 (maybe 2019 now as they are apparently ballooning to feature-length).

Game of Thrones Season 7 Trailer #2 (2017 – HBO) “Winter is Here”

 

At the end of last season, Daenerys’ (Emilia Clarke) dragons and her immense army were finally on the way to Westeros, where Cersei (Lena Headey) has now become Queen after the death of her children. The Night King’s (Vladimir Furdik in season 6) army is heading south, and a battle appears to be imminent.

Though we don’t know exactly what’s coming, Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark, tweeted this last year: “Just finished reading season 7, s**t gets REAL. I’d start preparing yourselves now… scratch that, nothing will prepare you for this… Holy BALLS.”

The show is based on the novel series “A Song of Ice and Fire” by George R.R. Martin. Last season, however, the TV series moved past the point where the books have stalled.

KT Readers Choose The Best Show on TV (4th Annual Awards)!!!!

Each September, in conjunction with Emmy month, Killing Time readers choose what they believe to be the best show currently on television.  TV has gone from a second tier medium to one that is consistently better with more variety than the movies.  There’s so much quality, in fact, that, this year, I doubled the nominees from the regular 10 to 20 shows. We had a record number of votes for any poll in the history of the site, and every one of the 20 shows received votes, but in the end, we have our fourth new winner in four years: The Flash is the best show on television.

2016 Emmy Winners List: Game of Thrones is the Most Decorated Drama of All-Time!!!

Game of Thrones, Emilia Clarke, Danerys Targaryen

Game of Thrones, Veep, and The People vs. OJ Simpson were the biggest winners at Sunday’s Emmy ceremony, winning Drama, Comedy, and Limited Series.  Game of Thrones was the night’s biggest winner with 12 awards, bringing its series total to 38.  That breaks Frasier’s record for the most awards ever won by a Drama or Comedy series, and the show has two, albeit abbreviated, seasons left to catch Saturday Night Live which has the overall record with 44.

Veep’s continual Emmy domination is in the tradition of lazy Emmy voting that leads to repeat winners year-after-year (a trend that’s gotten much better on the dramatic side, but really did Ben Mendelsohn deserve another win?  He was more of a guest star in Bloodline’s second season.).  Its wins this year bother me less than when it has been inexplicably lauded over better shows like 30 Rock and Parks & Recreation.  The state of the comedy on TV, at this point, has degraded to the level where I don’t think any current show is worthy of recognition.

Cuba Gooding Jr., OJ Simpson, The People vs. OJ Simpson

Check out the list of major winners below including much deserved wins for Sherlock and John Oliver.  The People vs. OJ Simpson was given five much-deserved major wins for limited series and for series stars Courtney B. Vance, Sarah Paulson, and Sterling K. Brown.  By the way, how is Fargo still considered a “limited series” when production is starting on its third season?  Such are the baffling ways of the Emmys.
