So. Game of Thrones. Let me just get this out of the way: I am a NERD about it. I follow all the websites, although I’m too chicken to post anything; I throw my books around in sadness/anger/fear/complete and utter emotional devastation and denial; I theorize on who Jon Snow’s mother is and complain that it’s been FIVE BOOKS and we still haven’t met Howland Reed. Whew. Reign it in, Amy! What I want to say is, it’s SO SATISFYING to see a book series as awesome as A Song of Ice and Fire made into such a geek-tastic TV show. And it’s a fantasy! Huzzah! It’s literally one of the best shows on TV, but AS ALWAYS, the books are even better. Since I’m all caught up with the books, though, I have nothing to do now but troll message boards, check websites, and monitor the filming of the show’s second season, which is coming in APRIL 2012. AHHH!! I wish April was tomorrow!
Thankfully, HBO has decided to give us fans an early Christmas present: the first season 2 trailer that actually contains real footage. You guys, I MADE LOTS OF NOISE when I saw that this was released. Plus, it was the only bit of goodness that I could find last night in the immediate aftermath of Once Upon A Time. It literally turned my frown upside-down. And because I don’t have anyone else to share this with, I wanted to post it here so that I can announce my fandom proudly–on the internet, at least–in the hopes that some of you guys will do a little happy dance too. Perfect pick me up for a Monday, no? Winter is Coming? NOT ANYMORE because Cold Winds Are Rising instead. BANANAS!
