In the least surprising information to come back alongside shortly, Entertainment Weekly experiences that HBO will not be giving out advance episodes of Game of Thrones season Eight to critics for overview.
I’ll pause for a second so the enormity of that may sink in.
But severely, HBO hasn’t launched advance Game of Thrones screeners shortly and it’s not about to begin again up. Back in 2015, the community did launch the primary 4 episodes of season 5 to critics, however somebody uploaded them to the web the day earlier than the premiere and earlier than we knew it each pirate around the globe was knee-deep in Thrones-ian goodness. Critics haven’t acquired advance episodes since. So thanks lots, whoever that was.
Naturally, that also hasn’t stopped pirates from raiding HBO’s horde. During season 7, two episodes — “The Spoils of War” and “Beyond the Wall” — leaked forward of time. Authorities took these leaks severely — arrests had been made — however it nonetheless occurred, as a result of this present is in quite a lot of demand and so long as copies of the episodes are on the market you already know somebody goes to suppose they’ll put one over on the HBO overlords and get them to the general public early.
HBO hasn’t introduced an actual launch date for the purple carpet premiere but, however we all know one is coming, and the individuals there’ll at see the (squeaky clear) season Eight premiere forward of time. The remainder of us play the ready sport.
