HBO Max, the ‘Netflix-like’ streaming service launched by HBO, is now full-throttle in the US. The streaming service oligopoly has now become a real bloody arena, where the best service offering the most content wins, sword in hand. Owned by Warner Bros, HBO is now in a good position to rival Netflix, Amazon Prime, Apple + and Hulu. Most fans, like myself, had to remain … Continue reading A Look Inside HBO Max’s ‘Raised by Wolves’ – ScreenHub Entertainment
The Last of Us is considered by many fans and critics to be one of the greatest video games of all time. Released in 2013 on the Playstation 3, it boasts a 95/100 on Metacritic and is best known for its sharp writing and characterization, particularly it’s depiction of strong women in the apocalypse. Of course, with that kind of prestige around it, many have … Continue reading Rejoice! HBO is Adapting ‘The Last of Us’ With ‘Chernobyl’ Writer – ScreenHub Entertainment
After Game of Thrones ended, a part of me was curious to see what else HBO had to offer. I was neck-deep into the on-going Westworld and the now-concluded series The Newsroom and Entourage, but I was curious as to what else was on offer. Not that I jump on every occasion to begin a new TV series, far from it. I, myself, am pretty … Continue reading Discover The Toxic Family Dynamic of HBO’s ‘Succession’ – ScreenHub Entertainment
This is my last one! Welcome to the third and last part of my three-part article on movies that, strangely, are unpopular with critics, but still managed to generate a fanbase throughout the years. As I mentioned previously, in the next paragraphs, it will be my great honour to introduce you to some of the ‘bastards’ of my movie collection. Even though I grew up … Continue reading Movies Hated by Critics, But Secretly Loved by Fans Part III – ScreenHub Entertainment
SPOILER ALERT After what feels like an eternity, Game of Thrones is back for its eighth and final season. The wait has been painful, with the show taking an extended break between this season and the last in order to make the final six-episode something worth remembering. After all the hype, theories and waiting, how did “Winterfell” fare? If we’re being frank, it felt a … Continue reading ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 8 Premiere: “Winterfell” Spoiler Review – ScreenHub Entertainment
I’m someone who really loves reading and often get asked for recommendations. One book that I consistently suggest to readers is Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials. Of course, people don’t often know a series by its name and ask “what is that?” This is usually where I lose them as I tell them the first book is called The Golden Compass (or Northern Lights if … Continue reading Why You Shouldn’t Be Sleeping On BBC’s Adaptation of ‘His Dark Materials’ – ScreenHub Entertainment
Bob Woodward’s tell-all book Fear, which documents the first year and a half of the current Presidential administration in the United States, has been selling like hot cakes. Unsurprisingly, the reply from President Trump has been that the novel is largely a work of fiction and ultimately, “fake news”. With his battle against the media reaching new heights, we thought this was a good time to … Continue reading Why HBO Should Bring Back ‘The Newsroom’ In 2019 – ScreenHub Entertainment
With the recent announcements of the 5 Game of Thrones prequels that are in development, there has been a lot of speculation as to what they could be. As you can see in one of my previous posts on the possibilities, it is quite likely that we will see a lot of Targaryen history come to light, including the First Blackfyre Rebellion. In this post, I will … Continue reading The First Blackfyre Rebellion Explained – ScreenHub Entertainment
HBO’s Game of Thrones is without a doubt, the most popular show on television. In fact, it’s one of the most popular shows in television history. It’s full of layered characters with complex backstories, intricate narratives and speculator action that is willing to kill off anyone it sees fit. Oh – and there’s also massive dragons. It’s a land full of magic and wonder; despite the grounded approach to politics and character interactions, but it’s those latter points that draw from the real world. Game of Thrones, and the book series A Song of Ice and Fire may be fictional, but they draw heavy inspiration from some real-world events. So as we await the first trailer for season 8, tune into this in-depth look at the history behind the franchise!

While Game Of Thrones comes to an end next year with season 8, five prequels have been announced to be in production but only one greenlit so far (The Long Night). Game of Thrones has easily become the most popular show of the decade and will arguably surpass J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle Earth in the coming years. I think it’s fair to say that we want to see more of the Game of Thrones world following the end of the show and I think delving into its rich lore and history are just the way to do this. In this post, I will be breaking down what the 4 unconfirmed prequel shows could be and what else could be done with the universe.
