Screenplayground Podcast – Game of Thrones

The Mother of Dragons

Patrick Guera spent 8+ years watching Game of Thrones. Thomas Cunningham watched the whole series in 10 days. What did we think? What did they get right? What could they have done better? Who did we love, who did we hate? Who did we love to hate? Is there any merit to the harsh criticism of the final season?
The Dink! The Hound! Tormund! Daenerys! Cersei! Varys! So many amazing characters! Enjoy us scratching the surface of one of the most popular and epic TV shows of our era.

We are given a ridiculous premise by Robot Producer (a random generated plot via the internet) and we must break the story and have a basic, workable plot upon which a script could be written… in roughly 30 mins to do this. Robot Producer is a maniac. Let us know what you think! If you love the show please share it and subscribe on iTunes & give it 5 stars & a review. This will really help us get the show heard. Thanks!
