Get Woke, Get Cancelled: The Sun UK Reports That Game of Thrones Prequel Pilot Was Rejected By HBO For Being "Too Woke"

Oh my goodnesss.

Even HBO thought it was too woke?

Think about how woke it must have been. HBO specializes in Woke Television for House-Bound Liberals and Obese NeverTrumpers Who Want to be Part of the Twitter Club.

Thirty million pounds -- down the drain because they put the project into the hands of untalented #Woke ideologues.

THE Game of Thrones prequel starring Naomi Watts was axed after HBO decided the [30 million pound] pilot was "too woke".

It was to feature the first White Walker as black, put lesbian characters at the heart of the plot and make one of Ned Stark’s ancestors mixed race.

...

The series, in which the main theme was to be colonialism, was being run by writer and producer Jane Goldman -- married to TV and radio presenter Jonathan Ross.

...

A source said: "HBO were terrified the first prequel would scare hardcore fans. It was very different to the original series, but was very brave and bold."

Brave and bold. Stunning and brave.

By the way, George Lucas did a YouTube reaction video, reacting to the latest Rise of Soywalker trailer.

He did not like it.

Okay, so that's fake. Those of you who didn't already see it might have started to realize it was fake about thirty seconds in.

It's actually a really good verbal impression of Lucas combined with a deep fake video.

So funny.

And true!

Another one: Lucas reacts to The Mandalorian.

18 from end of last thread:

Texas Monthly, a pretty liberal magazine, published a nice epitaph on Beto's campaign, noting that he had destroyed his ability to ever run for office in Texas again. They had what I thought was a good take on how he went so wrong - first, he never realized that during his Senate run, he was totally a media creation, with fawning adulation. And that was all "look at young, hip, Moderate Beto, who is Friendly and Cool, compared to that nasty mean old Ted Cruz!!!"

Beto thought it was all about him and how great he was, but it was just marketing. So he went national thinking it would happen again, but here came Butttigieg, and he was the same as Beto but a point higher on the Victimology pyramid, so all of the media support dumped Beto and moved to the new exciting Gay Guy, who was otherwise the same.

This is where Beto should have started to try and develop his own political voice, but he panicked and decided he REALLY needed to go Total Woke to get the magic back. And that's when he started to talk about confiscating guns, and penalizing churches. His plan not only failed miserably, it was so badly thought out that it destroyed his chance to ever run for any public office again. Bye Bye Beto!!!

You can make a movie about colonialism and have it be quite good. Highlight the fraught relations between the overlords and their subjects, the simmering conflict, etc. There are in fact good movies/tv series about British India and other places.

But when you announce that you're going to check the diversity boxes and that THIS is why your show will be great...yeah, it's gonna suck.

Studios will be very free with cash if they think it's a sure bet. Once they wake up, it's another story.

It's universal. I live in very red place but tax increases always seem to pass with easy margins. Say it's for the children, for firefighters or for police and you're guaranteed 70% YES votes.

In reality 98% of the tax increase goes to something other than fire/police of children Which is why the next year another tax increase is needed, and easily passes.

102 I doubt there's much exit polling in Ky, if any. It's not a big enough race to rate that expense, especially when everyone just needs to sit tight for a couple hours to see the results.

I too believe that in a tight race, the Republican will come out ahead, but this is a test of that proposition.
Posted by: Tom Servo

I'm amazed so much of the state has taken the side of the public employees and their absurd pensions.

I tend to think Bevin comes out ahead also, just because the Democrat party is deeply unpopular nationally in KY, Trump is popular, and impeachment is not.

But Bevin has a race and probably 90% of the state is not effected by these pension issues, but somehow think teachers deserve endless praise for working 8 months a year until 3pm.

So apparently, this election is such a bellwether for 2020 that the Dems....um, are having to run ads convincing people that you can be a Trump supporter and vote for Democrats in other races. 'Kay then.

109 Here's an actual good point - George Martin based Westeros in large part based on the West European experience. . . as he knew it in 1995ish. Obviously the archaeology and genetics have passed him by a bit.

1. The Children of the Forest = what ever was here before modern humans, Tylwyth Teg in Welsh
2. The First Men = Hunter-Gatherers, plus Neolithic Farmers [not well constrained before about six years back]
3. Andals = 'Bell Beaker' Indo-European speakers
4. Iron Islands = Norse
5. Valyrians = bit of Saxon, bit of Norman

We're excluding Dorne (and the Rhoynar), which is Spain; about as uneasily attached to Westeros as the real Spain is uneasily attached to Europe.

Also : Neanders are Ibbenese and (I suspect) the Cave People north of the Wall; Denisovans are over on Sothryos. They're in the expanded lore, they don't feature in the GoT plot.

Blah blah blah; the First Men probably look dark with blue eyes. Like Conan the Cimmerian. I'm sure a bunch of them still hang out north of the Wall. A lot of people who got their asses kicked in Westeros have trickled North over the millennia. So they'll have all sorts up there, although probably not black people on account it is cold.

But if we're talking the Andals And The First Men, we're talking a mixture of races that ... probably look similar to one another.

Oh and in those days lesbians got raped, by men, and hanged if they didn't fake enjoying the rape enough. Out and proud lesbos in the Bronze Age LOLMAOROTFL... GF.

That actually is the central core tenet of Maoism. He called it "Endless Revolution."

So you constantly have to have new, fresher and ever-more extreme subsequent revolutions, going on forever.

I am pleased he was too stupid to learn how to pivot politically, not savvy enough to keep state races in play after his inevitable bomb out.

A fair amount of our public life; entertainment and other products for sale, politics etc., is strongly influenced nowadays by non-market considerations. Instead of trying to sell things that people want, we have people trying to jam things down our throats that they want to impose on us.

It's not operating as a market economy when that is going on. It's operating as a command economy, stealth socialism. The USSR's economy went down the drain operating that way.

LOL, true story.

Me and the Ex were both in the Navy, and I went off on a 6 month cruise. She wanted self defense lessons, so I got her full contact female centric self defense lessons for a Christmas Present, just as I was leaving.

She took them, enjoyed the heck out of them, but after I got back, started to mess around hitting me one day. So we went out to the back yard.

It did not go as she had expected. I outweighed her by 75 lbs, and started to throw her around the backyard. Thought it was funny and started laughing.

Found out during the soon to happen divorce, that it was a 'defining moment in our relationship'.

239 203 so some small overwhelmingly white rural KY county has the Trump candidate increasing his share of the vote amid greater turnout

Just like it will be in 2020. Betapundit and "Get in the Captains Quarters Now, Betapundit" Ed Morrissey and all the rest dont get that a white turnout record is gonna be set and they're gonna be voting Trump. As will an increased number of blacks and Hispanics and asians. Not a big increase, but more than enough

Demography is destiny will be pushed back another 20 years and quietly abandoned after 2024 anyway

It is still true, as it was in High School:

When The Teacher announces a project of some sort, possibly a competition, and that all ideas are welcome, and will be selected by vote ...

... what SHE really means is that, actually, her favorite smart girl has seized power ... and The Project will be done her way.

IOW, it will piss-off most of the guys, because the smart girl's idea is somewhere between mediocre and really bad.

Obviously Saving PR was fictional Midway not but even if that's not 100% accurate I am OK with it if they don't SJW it up.

The reputation of that movie is ENTIRELY based on the fact that it's opening sequence is super-intense and people made a big deal out of veterans being overwhelmed with memories.

Spielberg is a Galactic God-Emperor Master of emotional manipulation.

But once you get past that, the story is a crock and it goes out of its way to make the US look bad - from the assembly-line letters (which didn't happen) to the fact that the real Ryan was actually rescued by a Catholic Chaplain instead of an infantry squad.

Why'd they write that guy out, I wonder?

Yes, and we ALL know that Kelly's Heroes is a much more realistic portrayal of the US Army in WW II!
Posted by: Don Quixote


There was a book published back in the '70s or '80s by some underground press called "Johnny Sold His Gun" about the REAL "hidden" history of the US Army in WWII, which is that some large percentage of American soldiers were ne'er-do-wells, and often stole equipment, rifle and supplies and sold them to locals, black-marketeers or anybody who would buy. The extent of the problem was covered up at the time and remains so to this day. And a lot of other malfeasances, like going AWOL, sexually assaulting local girls, feighning illness, etc. etc.

Sad to admit, one of my own relatives was one of those corrupt WWII soldiers. He used to regale us with tales of his misdeeds in Europe that would curl your hair.

The US troops were probably no worse than the troops of other nations in this regard, but we rarely hear about it.

I hated it because it was based on lies.

By the time combat troops arrived, the beaches were very organized. Most of the chaos Nolan shows were the REMFs during the early days of the evacuation.

Similarly, the British weren't stupid - they send the big fleet in under cover of darkness. They did this night after night - gather all the ships on the British side during the day, make a massed descent at night.

But that doesn't look dramatic, so let's have them get bombed a lot.

Finally, the civilian yacht was based on the Sundowner, and the crew made it there and back without incident. Having a freaked-out Tommy cripple one of the crew was a blood libel.

This is our age - we take heroes and smear them, and people are so glad that they aren't totally condemned that they stand up and applaud the smear because hey, it could have been worse.

American military in WWII was enormous, based largely on mass conscription - big bell curve, lots of room for the lower end. But overall, and in comparison to, at least, the Axis militaries, in terms of misbehavior/corruption/outright vile criminal activity??

Anthony Hopkins used to tell a story that when the film first came out, if he found himself in a city where it was playing, he would go into the theater, find someone sitting alone and sit down behind them.

And then, at the scariest, tensest point, would lean forward, tap them on the shoulder and say, in his Hannibal Lecter voice, "Are you enjoying the movie?"

Says he scared the shit out of people.
