I’ve just been looking around at the Game of Thrones site and looking at the photos and the film stills shown there and I’m amazed. I know that this series isn’t everyone’s cup of tea but it still looks awesome. The second season DVDs have just recently gone on sale and I, of course, nabbed them. I wish they had been available sooner but HBO seems to dislike the idea of making money.
At any rate, I’ve got my television prepped and my DVR set up so that I can enjoy season three in all of its glory. I wish they would provide more information about the different filming locations but I understand that they are reluctant to do that because it devalues some of the exclusive extras that go into the DVD sets. Still, I know they were in Ireland and Iceland. I think that the desert scenes were shot in Morocco.
This season looks like it’s going to be epic so I’d suggest that, if you’re planning to watch it, you make sure that your television is up to the task of displaying it. If you need a new one, then there is still plenty of time to order and have one delivered before the big day of March 31. And, if you’re a fan of the series, what scene are you most looking forward to in season three?
