Instead of the usual scripted episode, History of Westeros relaxes a bit to discuss S04E01 of Game of Thrones…but who can relax for season 4 of Game of Thrones?! A solid start to the season with a long and exciting final scene.
We are joined by Unsullied TV viewer Sean Pink, an insightful reviewer who some may remember from our Red Wedding discussion episode. His unspoiled perceptions are quite the contrast to Ashaya and Aziz’s thorough Game of Thrones education, and this makes the review unique.
Timid bores me.
After the credits, we discuss a few spoiler topics, so stick around for that if you have read the books! This includes a short discussion on the recent spoiler chapter from The Winds of Winter, which will be at the very very end.
I’m going to have to eat every fucking chicken in this room.
Are you sure we’re not related?
Every scene of S04E01 is discussed, what we liked and didn’t like, noting interesting but non-spoiler comparisons to the books. As usual there is special attention paid to hidden detail and backstory.
Sean is asked to make a few predictions, while the others struggle not to tell him how right or wrong he is!
The HBO show reviews may or may not continue, so please let us know if you’d like to see us continue doing them. Be sure to check out our forum, which is newly launched, and introduce yourself there.
