Working on your Game of Thrones rewatch? Check out these selected commentaries from the Game of Thrones blu-rays from Seasons 4, 5 and 6, now on soundcloud.
It’s that time of year again, when fans around the world begin their great Game of Thrones rewatch ahead of the brand new season. Now, to be fair, in earlier years, we would already be hot and heavy into the rewatch cycle, with the season arriving in a month or so. But with the pushback to summer (most likely July) now is the time when we pull out the blu-rays and start from back in Season 1 to marvel at how young Arya was, and how innocent it all seemed.
But, like most things, there’s one little problem getting in the way: going to work. Some of us can watch episodes at our desks, but most have to, you know, actually work. The best we can do is listen to audiobooks and music. And that’s where this handy dandy little Soundcloud account comes in.
The soundcloud user (Dixie C) has uploaded a few commentaries from select game of thrones episodes from the last three seasons. perfect for listening to at your desk while you work.
Check out the episodes she’s got on line:
Game of Thrones Season 4, Episode 9: “The Watchers On The Wall”
This is a key episode in the series, and one of the most impressive hand-to-hand combat sequences ever staged on the show. Not only due to the scene in the courtyard and the “360” fight sequence, but also the CGI that went into the Giants who helped lead the attack on the wall.
Game of Thrones Season 5, Episode 10: “Mother’s Mercy”
The Season 5 finale, one of the longest episodes to date, and bloodiest, with six key characters done in, averaging one every ten minutes. Also famously features Cersei’s “walk of shame” which was another heavy CGI scene, as they used a body double.
Game of Thrones Season 6, Episode 8: “No One”
Of the three, perhaps the oddest choice, as “No One” was the most criticized episode of Season 6. Still, it’s interesting to listen to those who worked so hard on it discuss what went into making it, and the decisions they had to make to basically force Arya’s time in Braavos to come to an end.
Which one will you listen to on your lunch break? Sound off below!
