At about 3:30pm EST, commenting will be shut off on Topless Robot for a bit. I’m going to guess about 45 minutes, or until 4pm EST, but you never know with these things. The site should be perfect accessible otherwise, you just can’t post any comments.
I invite you to spend the time watching this 25-minute introduction to the world of Westeros and HBO’s Game of Thrones series. If you were at all put off by the amount of plot or characters or such in the series, this should be pretty much everything you need to know to hit the ground running when the show premieres on April 17th, and it’s probably not a bad way to brush-up for those who haven’t read the books in a while. Anyways, enjoy, and hopefully everything will be back to normal in a bit. Maybe even slightly better. (Video via io9)
