Take the Black Live: We pore over the first footage from Game of Thrones season 8

Welcome to Take the Black Live, the chat show where we dig into the latest Game of Thrones and A Song of Ice and Fire news in far too much detail. This week, Culturess editor Cheryl Wassenaar and I celebrate the release of the first official footage from Game of Thrones season 8, all three seconds of it. Is that too little to spend 10 minutes blathering about what it means? Of course not! Watch us above.
