Seems like it's uncool to have not read the books. The book thread is getting more love.

The trailer looks good. Looks like they've really invested the profits back into making this epic.

Once first ep hits, then it will kick-off, covered everything to death (lol) in the S4 thread so haven't really got much to discuss lol.

first 3 are up, 100% leaked by HBO to track pirates :p
more so to troll them by having them wait 3 weeks for a new episode.

EDIT: looks like the first 4 but not in HD so pass. and it wont be worth the 1 month wait for new episodes.

Why would they release 4 screener episodes in the first place?

One i could understand, two at a maximum...........but four?
Screener episodes for TV critics usually, so they can review in advance and have instant reviews...

Though screeners are never in HD, so I'll pass but HBO done f’ed up.

I know they need them in advance for reviews, but releasing 4 seems a bit excessive to me. Some sites are claiming there could be up to 6 episodes eventually leaked.

It's a bit strange. Perhaps they're a bit worried about future viability and the story going downhill so want the public feedback asap.

I just watched the first ep and I know I'm thinking "And........ where the fu** is this going?"

That's what I usually think of the first half of every season.

Fwiw when the red wedding was on I thought great another ******* wedding. ...

I would have thought they would individually watermark the review copies
Some have the wartermark at different times, and others have hidden artifacts or codes in the video. Warner could track it and ban whoever it was from getting any preview copies. But depending on how much it pisses off Warner and HBO it could lead to them now doing secret cinema screenings for the press like they do with movies. or have them watch them in Warner offices.

Some nuts are saying these episodes were leaked as revenge for HBO airing a controversial anti-Scientology documentary the other night.
