This time it’s a short look at Renly Baratheon’s armor, which they obviously put a lot of time into, and yet, just looks okay to me. I mean, it looks good, it just doesn’t look as stupendously good as you might think after they spent all that effort. Really, it doesn’t matter — what matters is that these GoT s2 sneak peeks are getting less and less effective at sating me until the show’s April premiere. I need the hard stuff, HBO. Gimme another trailer, some footage, something. Just one more hit, ma. JUST ONE MORE FUCKIN’ HIT. Seriously, I may have to start a real heroin addiction just to pass the time until April.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
