Game of Thrones returns tonight on Sky Atlantic HD

The long awaited Season 5 is back on our screens!

Game of Thrones Season 5The fifth outing of HBO’s epic ‘Game of Thrones’ series finally gets underway tonight, Monday April 13th, on Sky Atlantic HD after what feels like an eternity in waiting, with legions of fans of the televised depiction of George R. R. Martin’s ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’ novels counting down the days until the show returns to UK TV screens.

9:00pm tonight brings an end to that wait and new beginnings for many characters who find themselves in unfamiliar pastures. The curtain raiser to this season opens with Daenerys grappling with her tempestuous dragons, whilst Tyrion is on the run from slaying his Father, opening his eyes up to new possibilities.

With winter on the way to Westeros, and the battle for the iron throne gaining momentum, ‘Game of Thrones’ fans can expect more of the usual action, intrigue and suspense; not to mention betrayal, blood, violence, and the usual sight of naked flesh.

Since last season’s climax, fans have had to contend with a number of behind the scenes specials and character montages which has only increases the agony in waiting. Now that the wait is over, we can finally sit back and enjoy the next chapter in this unmissable, mind-blowingly superb feast of storytelling. And if another few hours is still just too much to bare, perhaps the season 5 trailer will be enough to get you all set for tonight’s Game of Thrones opening credits sequence on Sky Atlantic HD. Enjoy!

 

The Premier League is reaching it’s conclusion

If blood and guts is not your thing and you prefer to watch 22 men kick a bag of air around a park, then you’ll know full well that the Premier League run-in only has a handful of games to go.

With Manchester City seriously stuttering in their title challenge, suffering recent defeats to local rival Manchester United, as well as Crystal Palace and a humbling in the Champions League by Barcelona, their season is on the verge of collapse; now sat in fourth place and well adrift of league leaders Chelsea.

In a strange twist of fate and a large dose of luck, Liverpool now sat in 5th, host Newcastle at Anfield tonight at 8:00pm, knowing a win could take them to within 4 points of City, with 6 games remaining. Only just recently, most pundits had the top four all wrapped up however, with City’s indifferent form and apparent lack of confidence, can Brendan Rodgers’ men mount a late challenge and snatch the final UEFA Champions League place away from last season’s Premier League Champions? Stranger things have happened!

With Spurs having their usual end of season slump, only Southampton and City stand between them and a possible chance of returning the Europe’s top club competition next year. Catch all the action live from 7:00pm tonight on Sky Sports 1 HD.

The F1 season just got a little bit tasty!

Nico Rosberg is not a happy bunny and with team-mate and outright arch enemy Lewis Hamilton cruising to victory in China this weekend, relations are now becoming very strained.

With three races completed, Hamilton leads the FIA Formula 1 World Championship from newly appointed Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel by 13 points, with fellow German Rosberg just behind by a further 4 points. And this past weekend, it appears the cracks are already starting to show.

Hamilton led the race from pole to the finish however, with Rosberg chasing behind for the entire race in second, Nico was not happy with the racing style of Hamilton; claiming he had deliberately “backed up” the chasing pack to inflict unnecessary pain and difficultly on his team-mate. It all flared up during the post race press conference when Rosberg accused reigning World Champion Hamilton of compromising his race. Hamilton responded in his usual style by stating that if Rosberg “wanted to get close to overtake he could have done” claiming that he wasn’t sure “what his problem” was.

Whichever way you look at the situation, it is clear that F1 has a new and fierce rivalry that harks back to the days of Senna and Prost. It makes for unmissable viewing and with each race, the flare ups are only going to intensify. No doubt, there will come a breaking point at which we may see something never witnessed in the modern era of F1 racing. It’s great stuff and for racing fans, simply adds to the spice of the sport which has been missing for many years.
