With Game of Thrones soon returning
to TV and HBO GO enabled devices around the globe, several people are holding
their breaths and wondering just how the ratings battle will play out this year.
past several seasons we've seen an endless rise in viewers, with the first and
last episodes usually topping all episodes in between. Though several benchmark
events have already occurred, with many people being turned into fans by book
fans who encouraged friends to watch the Red or Purple Wedding, there's plenty
left to behold.
glance at several YouTube Season 6 prediction videos tells this author that
people are still deeply entrenched in Game of Thrones with it entering this
season, with plenty of views on nearly every video on the first few pages.
question is, will Game of Thrones continue to be a top runner for HBO?
signs seem to point to yes. The faithful viewers seem to be ever-faithful
despite changes within the storylines from the books to the show. With the
expansion of HBO GO and other various internet-based viewing products, the Game
of Thrones audience has more ways to watch now than ever and HBO is keeping up
with those viewers.
Thrones also demands a prime spot in HBO's Sunday evening line up, a time when
most people have sent the kids to bed but aren't quite ready to think about the
work week themselves. With the show running at just about an hour in length,
this is a nice cool down for both non-parents and parents before bed time for
the dreaded Monday morning.
season the prediction mills seem to be very excited about revisiting Bran Stark
and his comrades. We won't spoil anything for those not up to date on the show,
but having missed Bran entirely during season 5, fans of the Stark clan look
forward to seeing this young wolf back. We may also get a glimpse or two of
Rickon along the way.
story has taken flight and, without revealing too much, her countless
appearances in the released trailers have everyone wondering what the Mother of
Dragons will be up to this season. If the hints are correct, we'll be seeing
plenty of her and Drogon.
current storyline seems to be hinted that it will continue to be at the
forefront of the tale. Nearly every trailer and teaser released has featured
Arya in some way or another and book fans have a good many ideas where she's
with other fan favorites such as Tyrion, Jon Snow and Cersei's never ending...
Cersei-ness, season 6 of Game of Thrones promises to be a fun ride.
