The Fan-Made Doctor Who Trailer for Series 8 is better than the Official Trailer for Series 8. From the same John Smith who brought us that infamous “WhoLock” Trailer, comes a teaser for new “Doctor Who” which supersedes, by far, that measly 15-second trailer from two weeks ago via the BBC. Already at almost 400,000 views on youtube, there’s a good chance you’ve already seen this one…either way, we’re making sure that you do. Because this is one fan trailer you don’t want to miss. “Doctor…
A little over a year ago wrapped one of the most impressive youtube series we’ve ever had the pleasure of viewing…and they’ve just released an update! The incredible youtube series, co-produced by Bernie Su and Hank Green (of Vlogbrothers fame), launched back in March of 2012 as a modern retelling of the Jane Austen classic, Pride and Prejudice. Starring the amazingly talented Ashley Clements as Lizzie Bennet, a 24 year old mass communications grad student vlogging her way to her thesis, The Lizzie Bennet Diaries was a masterful,…
So you’ve never read the series (A Song of Ice and Fire), but you love Game of Thrones
…yet no matter how thorough, the show creators can’t give you all the details of that rich background George R.R. Martin has created. It just can’t happen in 10 episodes at an hour long each. Which is something of a shame because there’s a lot of really fascinating subplots which occur in the book that, naturally, don’t make the cut to adaptation. Sometimes that’ll leave you with questions, and sometimes it leaves you entirely ignorant of pretty cool extraneous info.
Prime example? The Wildlings. There’s plenty which is hinted at and revealed about the self-titled “Free People” during Jon Snow’s time with them in season 3, and so far in Season 4, we’ve even met with those freaky cannibalistic Thenns. But did you know the Thenns aren’t actually Wildlings? Or they are to people South of The Wall, but they don’t identify with The Free People. Sound confusing? Check out our youtube rec of the week from Emergency Awesome! This guy does a phenomenal job breaking down the complex nature of society North of The Wall and filling viewers in on all those tidbits which just weren’t relevant to the Game of Thrones narrative.
We love this animated short on the upcoming trial of beloved Game of Thrones character, Tyrion Lannister. You will too.
A sister who wants him dead, a father acting as judge who also wants him dead, his wife gone and no witness willing to come forward — George R.R. Martin certainly made things look bleak for Tyrion when he wrote this bit. How will Tyrion make out in the upcoming trial? One youtube user has an idea…
“Just days away from the actual airing of the HBO episode, Tyrion is brought to trial in this animated skit for slaying the king, but how will he defend himself when everyone he trusts already fled King’s Landing?”
Game of Thrones, episode 6: “The Laws of Gods and Men” airsthis Sunday night on HBO at 9pm/8C.
After years and years of sporting a bow tie, have you ever wondered how quick Bill Nye is at tying it?
Maybe you haven’t. But if you have, you wouldn’t be alone. Geekosystem caught up with everyone’s favorite Science Guy at SXSW this year and challenged him to a Historic Bow Tie-ing Competition. The results will leave you certain: tying all those Bow Tie’s over the years was not the job of Nye’s wardrobe guy.
