GAAAAHHH. As a nerd blogger of mild repute, I feel like I should be commenting on the content of this new Game of Thrones trailer (which contains 110 glorious seconds of new footage), but 1) Westeros.org, as usual, has provided the best shot-by-shot breakdown already here, and 2) I seriously need to clean this puddle of drool off my keyboard. And then I need to watch the trailer again, maybe with some sort of towel or tiny bucket positioned under my mouth.
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.
