Edwin Starr once famously sang "War (huh, yeah). What is it good for? Absolutely nothing! (Say it again, y'all)". However, if Edwin Starr had seen Game of Thrones, he might have changed his tune. Now, there's a lot of stuff going on Game of Thrones, but I think we can all agree the war between the various factions is the most engrossing (and exciting) story arch. Sorry, Edwin, but it just is. The Blackwater episode was superb television.
HBO have just released another trailer tentatively teasing that Game of Thrones season 3 will be the best one yet for fantasy war buffs. I mean, the book on which this season is based isn't called Storm of Swords for nothing. Check out the trailer below:
With the exception of the above mentioned episode, Game of Thrones has a habit of avoiding the big battle scenes. Of course, this kind of makes sense considering their limited budget, but hopefully with Game of Thrones now established as one of the most watched shows on television, we'll get to see even more battlefield bloodshed. Well, I for one hope so, but what do you think? Do you want to see every battle, or do you think it would get in the way of Game of Thrones more subtle storylines? Get discussing below.
