Normally around this time of year, the first teaser trailer arrives for the new season HBO's "Game of Thrones". Mostly graphics and/or the briefest bit of footage, and so far nothing has really been released from the upcoming pivotal fourth season. Until this morning.
HBO has released the first footage from the new season, all SIX SECONDS of it, via a promo ad for the whole network. The first half of the 2min 40sec clip looks at big moments and events in 2013 on HBO series including "Thrones," "Girls," "True Blood," "Boardwalk Empire," "Veep" and more.
It's the second half though that's more interesting. A couple of brief shots from the new seasons of all those shows, along with new shows like "The Leftovers," "Looking," "True Detective," "Silicon Valley" and one-offs like TV movie "The Normal Heart" and mini-series "Olive Kitteridge". For those just after the 'Thrones' footage, jump to 1:36.
