HBO’s hit fantasy series returns on Sunday
In case you haven’t watched the first three seasons of HBO’s “Game of Thrones” and need to cram before Sunday’s season four premiere — or if you did watch and just have no idea what the heck was going on — the guys at Screen Junkies have got you covered.
The popular YouTube channel’s new Honest Trailer for the hit fantasy series sums up “Game of Thrones” thus: “It’s kind of like a history test, but with dragons and boobs.”
This Honest Trailer comes in regular and spoiler-free versions, the latter of which consists mostly of blurred images and bleeps to preserve what little Twitter hasn’t already ruined of the first three seasons.
But there’s enough there to get the idea that author George R. R. Martin — on whose books “Game of Thrones” is based — likes to screw with his devoted fans, break their hearts, and keep them rabidly tuned in.
“Ride along on an adventure where any lead character can die,” the voiceover says.
“And settle in for a show with so many monologues, HBO will desperately try to keep your attention by any boobs necessary.”
The fourth season of HBO’s “Game of Thrones” premieres on HBO Sunday, April 6 at 9 p.m. ET.
