Out with the old, in with the Tyrion. HBO likes to wrap up every year with a promo showing all the good things they’ve done over the past 12 months, and The Newsroom, and what to expect for the next 12. In 2013, we were treated to an excellent season of Boardwalk Empire, Eric’s d*ck on True Blood, “I love misogyny like that,” the death of Life’s Too Short, the rise and fall of Kenny Powers, and most importantly, “The Rains of Castamere.”
In the video below, we can see all of five seconds of new footage from Game of Thrones season four, which premieres not soon enough. Five seconds might not sound like much (“LOOK HE’S WALKING LOOK SHE’S STANDING!”), but it’s five seconds of Game of Thrones we hadn’t seen yet, therefore, it’s of the utmost importance, as are the clips from True Detective. There’s also a sneak peek of Billy Crystal’s 700 Sundays, which I’m only mentioning because that’s how long it feels like since we had any dragons up in our TV sets.
