-7 days until Season 3 of Game of Thrones is released

Assuming Season 3 of Game of Thrones is still on track for 31st of March then we are at –7 days away from some of the best TV viewing there is.


Picture shows release date in American notation with month first, then day, then year.

Episode 1 of Season 3 is due to air on HBO in the USA on our Easter Sunday.

I have re-watched Season 1 and will be starting my re-watch of Season 2 tomorrow night.


As this poster indicates, the Mother of Dragons (shown in the poster) features heavily in Book 3 as she crosses the small sea and then starts to assemble her army. And yes, for those who have not seen any of Game of Thrones, she does have some dragons.

There is not much on television that I look forward to, but I am sure looking forward to this third season of Game of Thrones. The only pity is that it only covers the first half of the third book. We are going to have to wait a whole other year to see the second half of the third book.

Again, I beg of you—if you downloaded Season 2, and maybe even Season 1, from the torrents because you just could not wait and you have not bought either the DVD or Blu-ray released copies yet then please go and buy them and put them in your collection.
