Game of Thrones

So here’s the honest truth: I am one of the few people, on the planet, who has never seen…gasp…a full episode of “Game of Thrones!” Not because I haven’t heard, clearly, about the show and not because my interest isn’t piqued. But there’s simply so much great TV on, I’ve had a hard time keeping up and, sigh, this show fell into my personal I’ll catch up “queue.” But I have a friend, Tatiana, who has been on me (for years) to get into it, and low and behold our friends over at HBO agree that it’s way past time!

So much so, they’re giving one lucky MMT subscriber a digital download for Game of Thrones: The Complete Seventh Season available today, September 25, everywhere digital is sold – including  iTunesGoogle Play, Vudu, and Amazon Video.

The Digital Download release includes an exclusive new “Creating the North and Beyond” featurette that takes fans behind the scenes of Jon Snow’s epic trek north of The Wall and his latest battle with the Night King’s army.

So die-hard Throne lovers know that in Season 7, Daenerys Targaryen has finally set sail for Westeros with her armies, dragons and new Hand of the Queen, Tyrion Lannister. Jon Snow has been named King in the North after defeating Ramsay Bolton in the Battle of the Bastards and returning Winterfell to House Stark. In King’s Landing, Cersei Lannister has seized the Iron Throne by incinerating the High Sparrow, his followers and her rivals in the Sept of Baelor. But as old alliances fracture and new ones emerge, an army of dead men marches on the Wall, threatening to end the game of thrones forever.

Now, I can’t give spoilers if I wanted to – because I’m still catching up – but I’ll be able to debate with the best of you soon about the show! 😉
