Game of Thrones Season 5 HD Trailer
After a Trailer was uploaded a few days ago, we’ve now access to an HD Trailer for Game of Thrones. It’s an awesome insight into the new season and I’m already looking forward to it. Even though I’m still unsure whether or not to actually watch this season.
Not only are there supposedly larger changes to the storylines, there could be spoilers for the books too (as we’ve already seen in a small scale in season 4). I’m not sure what to think of both of these possibilities. The changes in storyline could very well enhance what many thought was a dry spell in the books. Or they could fail to capture GRRM’s vision and spell a drop in quality. I don’t expect that, but the possibility is there.
The possible spoilers are a bigger worry for me. I’d like to consume the story first and foremost through its original medium, so would rather not have the books spoiled for me. What do you think? Are the books important enough for you to possibly sit still and not watch season 5 of Game of Thrones, or are you more a fan of the TV-Show?
Especially when taking into account what many had expected: Martin will not publish The Winds of Winter this year and so it’s very likely that the TV-Series will overtake the book, as it’s scheduled to end in 2017 and I doubt many here think Martin can write and publish the last two books of his series in that time.
