Amazon Prime Members will be able to stream HBO Shows

Amazon.Banner.New._V387679806_

HBO and Amazon have reached a deal that will allow anyone to watch HBO Shows as long as they have an Amazon Prime account.  Now everyone who doesn’t have HBO can watch many of the HBO favorites.  There is a catch to this amazing offer, not all the shows will be available.

To start members will have access to all episodes of; The Sopranos, Deadwood, The Wire, Six Feet Under, Rome, Eastbown & Down, Enlightened, and Flight of the Concord.  Subscribers will have select seasons of Boardwalk Empire, True Blood, and Extreme.  Early episodes of Veep, Newsroom, and Girls will be available after they hit the three-year mark.  This deal does not include True Detective or Game of Thrones.  I know many of you are sad to hear that Game of Thrones will not be included.

By the end of the year HBO GO will be available on the Fire TV platform.  That should mean all HBO shows will be available by the end of the year.  Until HBO GO is available at the end of the year people are still going to have to borrow logins – I mean wait to see many of their favorite shows.

The HBO shows will be available starting May 21st.

Here we are after last week’s very explosive episode, the most important thing to remember it that Joffery is dead. This has definitely caused cheers across the world/realm. I think this can help prove that:

Game of Thrones Recap: Two Swords

GoT Logo

Well Game of Thrones is back, I don’t know about you but I couldn’t be more excited. This season is the second half of Book 3 – A Storm of Swords, in my opinion the best of the books. I promise not to give away any spoilers. A lot happened last season the biggest things to happen were; Jaime’s hand got cut off, Arya is a crazy killer, and Robb and Cateyln were betrayed by the Frey’s and killed at a wedding.

“Game of Thrones” Inspired Cocktails – Part 2!

Welcome back to our series of cocktails inspired by the truly massive universe of George R. R. Martin’s “Game of Thrones.” Let’s get right on into it:

gotdrink-jonsnow

It may be simple, but don’t underestimate this bastard! White and red colours dominate and mix in a cinnamony swirl we can all get down with. Just watch that shot glass in the middle. You might have to do something special with your tongue to make sure that it goes down right. gotdrink-thefury

Absinthe dominates in this lightly sweetened drink. Full-bodied and made with several other fairly neutral flavours, you won’t even realise when this drink creeps up on you. gotdrink-thekingslayer

The aromas of pear and almond make this sparkling drink shine like gold. Well, that and its colour. Delicate enough to be handled with one hand, the Kingslayer is like an autumn dessert tart in a glass. gotdrink-theknightswatchWhile on the lookout for wildlings and white walkers, you’ll want to keep caffeinated, but that doesn’t mean that you should sacrifice the creature comforts. This warm beverage is bittersweet as a night on the wall, and the toasted marshmallow will keep the midnight oil burning.

gotdrink-bronn2

Bronn, Bronn, Bronn, you are a card. For lack of having any moonshine on-hand, we made his drink with the next best thing; tequila! Bane and best friend of woo-girls, “There’s No Cure for Cunt”‘s featured liquor gives you a party in your cup. Just don’t forget your tiny umbrellas!

 

 

“Game of Thrones” Inspired Cocktails – Part 1

In celebration (and preparation) for the premiere of the new season of “Game of Thrones” this Sunday, the Fangirls have been fervently working on a series of GoT-inspired tasty alcoholic beverages. There are dozens of drinks to choose from, so there will be several posts, but these first six are pretty darned delicious. Be sure to share and pin them if you like them or want to try them, and let us know how your adventures in alcoholism turn out in the comments! As always, drink responsibly, and now without further ado, the drinks:

 

gotdrink-thelittlefinger

Tasting like cherry pie a la mode, but packing quite the punch, the Little Finger shot is a perfectly clean drink reminiscent of the blood and dirt just beneath an immaculate surface. gotdrink-theredwedding

This drink has quite a kick, and a flavour that you’ll love, even as it’s sourness puckers your lips. With a marachino cherry at the bottom soaking up the booze, you’ll eel extra bad when you make the connection between that little cherry and an unborn fetus… But you’ll eat it and not quite care any more. gotdrink-therosesthorn

This drink is sparkling and subtly sweet, given a good body by the egg white, and a very refreshing flavour from the hint of lemon. gotdrink-thespider

In opposition to the Little Finger, the Spider is black and velvety, with a solid coffee flavour, and the subtle hint of butterscotch adds a nice surprise. gotdrink-whitewalker

This drink is massive, and frozen, and it will fuck you up, just like the White Walkers and their army. Featuring blackstrap rum and a slight cinnamon flavour from rumchata, this sno-cone/milkshake hybrid has a pale, curdled look, but it tastes perfectly smooth and creamy, but still isn’t too heavy. gotdrink-winteriscoming2I first heard of glogg after watching Disney’s “Frozen,” and was intrigued. As it turns out, this drink is delicious and it really is warming, being a mulled wine with spices and heated with fruit and cinnamon before drunk. Sort of like a warm, spiced sangria. And those slices of fruit are extra flavourful once you’ve finished your drink and they’ve soaked up the alcohol and spices.

Possible Game of Thrones Movie

george-rr-martin

The current talk in the Game of Thrones world is the possibility of a Game of Thrones movie.

“It all depends on how long the main series runs. Do we run for seven years? Do we run for eight? Do we run for 10? The books get bigger and bigger (in scope). It might need a feature to tie things up, something with a feature budget, like $100 million for two hours. Those dragons get real big, you know.” – George R. R, Martin

With any luck, viewership will continue to increase for Game of Thrones, this way they can continue to get the budget that the show needs. As much as I like the idea of a movie, the TV seasons are better because they are able to capture more of the elements and story lines from the books.

There is a chance that the movie could be about the Tales of Dunk and Egg, which is set 90 years about before the Game of Thrones books. It is about the ancestors of the current Game of Thrones characters. I would not mind seeing that in a movie form since those books are novellas.

Which would you rather see Game of Thrones as a movie or the prequel novellas as a movie?
