Take the Black Live: Diana Rigg, The Mandalorian, the Game of Thrones pilot


This week on Take the Black Live, we honor Dame Diana Rigg, geek out over The Mandalorian season 2 trailer, and examine the unaired Game of Thrones pilot.

Welcome to Take the Black Live, a stunning and brave show that dares to discuss topics like fantasy, sci-fi, movies and TV.

This week, we take deep dives into a few topics: first, we honor Dame Diana Rigg, who died last week at the age of 82. We look back over her incredible career and celebrate what she brought to Game of Thrones as Olenna Tyrell. Then we transition into a discussion of the new trailer for The Mandalorian? What are our hopes and fears for the second season? Finally, we take a long look at the original Game of Thrones pilot, which was so rough the show almost didn’t get made!

All that and more is below. Watch!

We also touch on the latest episode of Lovecraft Country and, because we’re sharing what we’re watching, I talk a bit about the creepy cult docuseries The Vow over on HBO. Anyone else watching that? Strange stuff.
