OK, I have some news. Dragons aren’t real. Which is a shame, I was going to call mine Captain scales. Shut up! Coming up with dragon names is hard. However in Game of Thrones they look very real thanks to fancy pants CGI and special effects. Take all that away, like in the video below, and not only does it look like HBO suddenly ran out of money halfway through an episode, but you get to see the real stars of the show. And by real stars, I mean guys carrying huge poles pretending to be giants, and a bear who’s made to look like he wants to eat Jaime Lannister but really just wants a cream pie.
Game of Thrones season 6 airs on HBO each Sunday in the US, and a day later on Sky Atlantic in the UK.
