Sunday night marked the premiere of season 6 of Game of Thrones, HBO’s money-making, ratings-slaying fantasy featuring warring kingdoms, amazing characters… and those characters meeting horrible ends in the worst possible ways. The gang at Screen Junkies, always staying abreast (hehe) of pop culture went back as well and did an Honest Trailer for seasons 4 and 5 of the hit show. They already did a great HT for seasons 1-3. Obviously if you’re not up to date… spoilers ahead!
Check out the Honest Trailer below (NSFW).
Of course, like all of us watching at home, narrator Jon Bailey has to sing and hum along to the awesome opening credits music. And watch as the show goes from grounded realism to full blown heavy metal album art! (The sample using the king of the white walkers is pretty dead on… I mean if you know your 80s metal albums. I’m looking at you Manowar). Last time Bailey warned that if Joffrey made is through the season, he’d kill him himself… now that warning is reserved for Ramsay, who smirks his way through rape, emasculations, phony marriages, and just being the biggest dick on the planet.
We hit the cast review and wonder who will die and in what gruesome fashion. All the characters you love like Jon Snow, Tyrion, and Daenerys, and all the other side characters you vaguely remember, and all their swords, which have names now… this is why I gave up reading the books after 30 pages. And wonder just how far the show can go after they already gave us incest rape next to a corpse, flaying and eat people alive, burning children at the stake while their parents watch, and more rape in front of family… Jesus, I feel terrible now that I mostly enjoy this show.
A show that takes things so far, that it even ruined “boobs”. Shame! Starring: All forms of cruelty, Littlefinger’s multiple accents, Stannis brooding in a dark room, Shae being a called a whore, and the Lannister family’s drinking problem… New Title: Clash of Clans.
Screen Junkies have over 5.3 millions subscribers on YouTube and release a new Honest Trailer every Tuesday.
