If someone tries to tell you there's going to be a secret Game of Thrones episode in February, tell them to relax; it's only a look behind the lens. There should (theoretically) be no dragons present.

On February 8th, HBO will air a behind the scenes special called "Game of Thrones: a Day in the Life." The half-hour special will take you through a single day of filming season five on three different sets in Ireland, Croatia, and Spain. The special will highlight the cast, sets, and production, but should give us a glimpse of what's coming later this spring in season five.

Just about everyone was excited for the return of Game of Thrones last weekend, but HBO has a hard time relaxing in its success of the mega-hit show.

When the Twitter-developed, live streaming Periscope app released March 26 it may have seemed to most of us like a way to show off your smoking. A few enterprising individuals thought it might serve a better purpose showing off the return to Westeros.

Well, the BBC reported this week that HBO sent out many 'take down' notices to those viewers who wanted to share their experience. The premium cable giant also woefully shook their heavy head (bedecked with jeweled pity crows, no doubt) over the lack of control they had of their content on Periscope.

"In general, we feel developers should have tools which proactively prevent mass copyright infringement from occurring on their apps and not be solely reliant upon notifications," HBO said in a statement.


This came only a few days after the first four episodes of the upcoming season leaked online.

But even with these gaps in their distribution, HBO is far, far from a sinking ship. This is more akin to someone drinking a dribble glass on a cruise ship.

The scene in question, which appeared in season six of the show and not in the book, set the PC community ablaze with outrage. It's been criticized as being aired for sheer shock value, and for having no narrative value. People are straight up pissed.

George R.R. Martin approves of the producers decision to air the scene, and told the press his novels were written with the intent to portray the unfettered brutality employed with acts of rape as a means to get what one wanted throughout ancient European history.

This is a dark show and fans need to consider toning down their violent reactions.

Can we all agree that Jonathan Nolan is the Christoper Nolan of TV? This show looks phenomenal. Cannot wait.
