Watch the 6th Season of the epic Game of Thrones in Australia – Unblocking HBO
The 6th season of HBO’s award-winning series Game of Thrones is just a month away and you must be now feeling eager to know about the fates of Daenerys Targaryen, Jon Snow and Cersei Lannister. All these lives were hanging in uncertainty in the previous season. However, it is pretty unfortunate that Foxtel has still sealed up its Australian broadcasting rights and this has been a disturbing factor for the Australian lovers of Game of Thrones. With that in mind, there are still few options which are available and which don’t demand you to sign up with the expensive pay TV subscriptions.
Imagine a world where you could live out all your fantasies, no matter how vile they are, without consequences. That’s sort of the unintended premise of HBO’s latest mega series – Westworld. Many will applaud the show’s excellent production values while ignoring the glamorization and furtherance of an alarming rape culture. I guess depicting Rape is fine as long as it’s stylized and “has a point.” The saving grace is so far it hasn’t been graphically depicted, at least in the first two episodes.
Tyrion knowing things and drinking; a warning from Davos; Jamie standing up to the Sparrow, Cersei setting up Tommen; The Girl getting a second chance (but not a third); strong Sansa and Tyrion, again, facing a dragon.
The new trailer for season six of Game of Thrones touches on a number of characters and situations – but never quite long enough to give anything important away. It teases us with just enough to hook us. Would that all trailers were so artful.
Check it out after the break. Season six of Game of Thrones premieres on HBO on Sunday, April 24th (9/8C).
To the strains of James Vincent McMorrow’s cover of Chris Isaak’s haunting Wicked Game, we see the characters of Game of Throne in harsh places – yet another shot of Jon Snow’s body; Daenerys trudging along with a group of Dothraki; Cersi offered the choice of standing down, ‘or there will be violence’ (she calmly replies, ‘I choose violence’). Oh, yeah, GoT is back!
