Gigglebit: Dinner is coming (video)

11 Apr 2015

Gigglebit is Siliconrepublic’s daily dose of the funny and fantastic in science and tech, to help start your day on a lighter note. Prepare for Game of Thrones with this mighty feast …

This weekend, fans of George RR Martin’s Game of Thrones will have their patience rewarded with the return of the show for its fifth season. The fifth season will debut in the US on HBO tomorrow night (Sunday 12 April) while the rest of us on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean will catch up with the fifth season on Monday night (13 April) on Sky Atlantic.

The show has been described as “the biggest drama” and “the most talked about show on television” due to its high production values and, of course, unexpected plot twists.

And then there is the Irish connection, with a good portion of the filming taking place in Northern Ireland and involving Irish stars like Liam Cunningham (Ser Davos Seaworth) and Michael McElhatton (Roose Bolton).

Ahead of the show’s return we treat you to two videos:
