It is borderline offensive and irresponsible to not watch Game of Thrones. And if you can't wait for April 12th (Season 5's premiere), you can at least be thankful that HBO is going to air THIS special on February 8th (details below):
It’s a half-hour documentary that covers one day of season 5 production on three different Thrones sets in three different countries – Belfast, Northern Ireland; Dubrovnik, Croatia; Sevilla and Osuna, Spain.
