Get Ready for ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 2 with HBO’s 22-minute Catch-Up!
We, like you, are dying. Not for any over-saturation of marketing, posters and trailers of the second season of HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones,’ mind you, but rather all this waiting! April 1 is little over a week away, and already it feels like a lifetime with the Night’s Watch. Fortunately, HBO is here to help.
For those of you who didn’t get a chance to watch the first season of ‘Game of Thrones’, or even pick up the stellar Blu-Ray, there is yet hope for you to catch yourself up in time for the April 1 premiere. Enter HBO, who today unleashed a massive, 22-minute documentary entitled “You Win Or You Die,” which handsomely recaps the major events of the season, as narrated and elaborated upon by show creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, as well as by actors Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Emilia Clark (Daenerys Targaryen), Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister) and Nicolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister)!
But that’s not all! Watching “You Win Or You Die” also affords you a rather extensive preview of season 2, chock full of new set pieces, synopses and characters, possibly even more so than the plethora of trailers released before it! Gosh, HBO must really love us, huh?
Do yourself a favor and watch the featurette, even if only to refresh yourself in time for one of the most highly anticipated season premieres of the last few years. Swear your allegiance to one of the five kings, and tell us how pumped you are for ‘Game of Thrones’ season 2 in the comments underneath!
