  • 'Game of Thrones' finale breaks illegal download records

    Source: http://www.cnn.com/2014/06/19/showbiz/tv/game-of-thrones-illegal-downloads/index.html?hpt=en_c2

    "Game of Thrones" has been setting ratings records for HBO this season, so it's probably no surprise that the fantasy hit is once again settings records for illegal downloading too.

    According to piracy-monitoring blog TorrentFreak, the season 4 Thrones finale "The Children" had roughly 1.5 million downloads within just the first 12 hours after the finale aired on the premium cable network, with more than 250,000 users sharing the same file (a record-breaking "swarm" of users). The site estimates that total number of downloads will exceed 7.5 million in the days to come.

      Never watched the series; I heard it wasn't very good.

          From what I remember of the books, the series is very accurate. With very few exceptions, the casting of the show is phenomenal, IMO.

            If I'm thinking of the same series, I thought someone said the series has lots of gratuitous and violent sex scenes that some people would find offensive. Is that the case?

              I wouldn't necessarily say violent (though the show is violent otherwise), but as for lots of them...yes.

                It's a political joke. Think immigration.

                    So did they drop a series of tubes off at your house?

                          Some colleagues at work were talking about various miniseries.

                              Very much so. In fact, it would probably get an X rating for the sex at least. The story lines and acting are pretty excellent though if you like those types of period pieces and can stand the violence and sex.
                              "I was the CIA director. We lied, we cheated, we stole, it was like... we had entire training courses. It reminds you of the glory of the American experiment." - Mike Pompeo, Secretary of State (source).
