PODCAST: New GAME OF THRONES Trailer & Much More!

Hey Everyone,

Paul here…

  First of all I feel I have to apologize yet again for being a little late in putting out our latest podcast. It’s been a busy month, but we try to get episodes of The World’s Best Podcast on a more or less weekly schedule at a minimum, if not more. So I really appreciate your patience with our unorthodox podcast release schedule over the last few weeks and I want to reassure you that the release schedule will be getting back to normal. As a small consolation, this week will see the release of not one, but TWO pretty great episodes of the Podcast (today’s episode and our Captain Marvel SPOILER-Filled Deep Dive Review)! I am particularly excited about our upcoming Captain Marvel episode! Not only because I am very psyched to see the movie, but some of the concepts and elements that we will see in this film, have the potential to open up so many different interesting possibilities for the MCU! Much in the same way Guardians of The Galaxy and Doctor Strange did.

   Anyway back to today’s episode! Most excitingly, HBO FINALLY dropped a full trailer for the EPIC final season of Game of Thrones premiering on April 14. I’ve posted the trailer below if you want to check it out (As if you haven’t already watched it a dozen times 😉). Needless to say, we were super excited to talk about it and we needed to do a breakdown of the trailer right away. I really dug it, the trailer was exciting and just substantive enough, without giving too much away.

    We also discuss the trailers for Dark Phoenix and Hellboy released earlier this week, we touch upon some predictions for Captain Marvel, and sadly we wrap things up on a somber note. With a tribute to the untimely passing this week of beloved actor, Luke Perry. Who was taken from us too soon, passing away at the age of 52. Despite the sad ending, as usual we had a lot of laughs recording this episode and we think you will too! So please enjoy! Listen here or subscribe on Stitcher and iTunes:

A new Rorschach? Or the same old Rorschach in a retelling of the same tale?

It can be maddening waiting for all of our most anticipated shows and movies to premiere, and 2019 has a lot of content coming out that’s worth waiting for. HBO dropped a new teaser today promoting it’s upcoming 2019 slate. They have a stacked fucking deck for the coming year!  It’s not much in terms of new content, but there are some juicy tidbits and we’ll take what we can get. This teaser gives us oh so brief glances at Game of Thrones: The Final Season, Watchmen (The Live Action Quasi-Sequel Series), His Dark Materials based on Phillip Pullman’s beloved series of novels, the long awaited Deadwood film, the documentary series The Case Against Adnan Syed, Big, Little, Lies Season 2, & more! Watch it here:

Like I said, far too brief, but certainly enough to get you excited! Plus, I found some cool promo images as well. This is just from HBO! We have awesome TV and films coming out in 2019 from Netflix, Amazon Prime, DC UNIVERSE Streaming, Marvel, Disney, Star Wars, & more! Completely contrary to what that dipshit Bill Maher has to say, Goddammit it’s a great time to be a fan!

FIRST LOOK: Game of Thrones: Season 8!

Hey Everyone,

Paul here…

HBO is notoriously secretive  when it comes to their hit series fantasy Game of Thrones.  They want the audience to know as little as possible coming into each new season. Especially going into the final season.

So far they’ve done a pretty damn good job. The show has always maintained a high level of secrecy to keep the audience surprised. A few years ago, the first 4 episodes of Season 5 leaked online about a month before the Season 5 premiere (I’m certainly DID NOT, find those early episodes online, hook my laptop up to my TV, and watch all 4 episodes alone on a Saturday night, because downloading content like that is WRONG). That incident increased the levels of secrecy and security HBO imposed even more. With April 14 premiere date of the final season fast approaching, we’ve been given very little promotional material showing us anything from the upcoming season. There have been two teasers  which I posted right below, but neither have shown any real content from Season 8. After the teasers, scroll down to all the cool pics HBO released to promote Season 8:

However today HBO dropped a bunch of new pictures from the new season. They mostly look like they are taking place at Winterfell. If I had to guess, the pictures all look like they’re probably from the first 2 episodes of the season. Based on the sets and the way that people are dressing, it seems to be that Jon has made his triumphant return to Winterfell with his new aunt/lover/queen in tow. Let’s dig in…

AECBC4E8-5369-4A77-A1DE-F8B3C6FDE302

A85E1D1E-D9EB-4199-AF25-1E5632210031
Goddammit, these two are sexy!
8E9E5B03-EEAF-4DE8-81B2-37F6AE0F59D3
Last we saw the Lord Tyrion, he seemed concerned about these two young lovers. One would think a marriage between these two Houses will only make them stronger. But is Tyrion afraid that Daenerys inherited some of her father‘s jealousy and insanity after all?  Who knows?
EBBA3969-3778-4704-8591-890CF667CFF9
Now, this is a guy who threw a young boy out of 10 story window to hide the fact that he was fucking his own sister, but despite all of that… I’m really rooting for Jamie in the season. In a perfect world, he gets Tyrion to convince Jon and Daenerys to pardon him and he joins the fight for Westeros. Maybe he’ll even end up with Brienne of Tarth, but I think Tormund would have a thing or two to say about that.
FC65B6E6-DE3F-4CE2-8785-F4A4B7099B40
Speaking Of Brienne, as much as I like this character,  I’ve got a strong feeling she’s not gonna make it out of this season alive, unfortunately …
CCB4E1D5-1301-45A0-B89F-BB2FCAAF29B5
…Neither will Varys, I’m afraid.  After all, The Red Woman did say it was his destiny to die in this strange country, but she could’ve just been fucking with him. I mean we all going to die somewhere. Maybe he is destined to die in Westrose, but not for a few more decades? Or he’s fucked.
A429DDD0-3AA1-46B6-91A1-EDC38317D3A1
I’ve got a good feeling that The Onion Night is going to make it out of this one alive.
DB658DC1-6EDD-475C-B8A5-FD1B195DD71E
Ah, Sam. Sweet wonderful Sam.  In a perfect world, things play out like this: Sam becomes an unconventional Maester  (like Q’byrn) or (eventually, years from now), Hand Of The King, to King Jon and Queen Daenerys. All the while, going home each night to fuck his illegitimate wife Gilly and raise his beloved, if non-biological son, Little Sam.
B99DC9C0-5779-4439-AA3F-54551FE43302
As long as we don’t have some fucked up situation where Daenerys kills Jon out of jealousy because of his claim to the Throne or something crazy. If that doesn’t happen, I think it’s very likely that Sansa will become Warden of The North.

 

4918E808-22E5-49BE-94DA-EE0E291A1148
Oh, Arya. Jesus, I don’t know about this one.  Arya’s defined her life by revenge.  When death is all you know, how can you expect to live life? My money is she ain’t making it out of this story.
B0CD352C-D392-46FF-86CB-C5D421C32B7D
I’m not really sure how things are going to play out with Bran. It seems like his entire existence has been to ensure humanity survives this upcoming war. So I don’t know where that leaves him when the battle is over.
213E9417-D3F1-493A-B551-2199D7A702C6
Your own decisions have led you to be so alone, Cersie.
132FD959-F7DF-405E-A97B-D6CDA6BBE3F0
I think either Jaimie or Tyrion will kill her, but my money’s on Jaimie.  Or they could throw us a curveball, who knows?
70DBE3CE-B221-4C74-A745-2C3D2CE71BBA
One last look at our heroes …

Godddammit, Jon Snow is a Grade A prime cut of Beefcake!
