    The problem with the prequels is that they lead nowhere. The Dance ushered in a time of instability and I think it just sounds boring. I'd rather have some new stories from Essos. Go to the mysterious places only known through one paragraph in World. The Empire of Dawn, the story of Quarth, whatever happened at the Five Forts. There is so much interesting stuff there. Hell, do a lovecraftian horror show with the Bloodthrone Emporer or shadow dragons in Asshai.

    I have no problem with a Fire &Blood story as long as there is as much focus on the other houses at the time.

  • Jeremiah Kane
    Jeremiah Kane 3 hours ago

    Fire and Blood is such an ideal prequel, it incorporates the stuff that is universally loved from the show & books; the Targarygens, Dragons, and cutthroat Westerosi politics. There's the potential to do literally 10+ seasons if they follow an anthology series style, it could go chronologically & start with Aegon's Conquest, as I do think a season on that would probably work best to set the stage for the series and draw the fans back in. After that they could continue to go chronological, do Aegon's reign and transition to that of Aenys & Maegor in the 2nd or 3rd season. Or they could jump around and not do it chronologically. As long as they don't do the Dance of the Dragons first, that would be blowing the load way too early. A good end point for the series, if Robert's Rebellion is off the table and I don't think it's necessary to see, they could end with the Tragedy at Summerhall, birth of Rhaegar, and could even set up the beginnings of Aerys' madness stemming from that tragedy. And the seasons near the end could incorporate Dunk and Egg tales as well. The potential of this series has me excited, unlike the Long Night/Blood Moon series, as the White Walkers and 2nd "Long Night" were such colossal disappointments I don't care to see a TV show exploring their origins.

    First of all, A World Of Ice and Fire is his worst book. Second, Fire and Blood is a perfect prequel that will grant you the best viewership, in my opinion. Yes some parts are dry, fuck the Jaherys part, too fucking long and boring. Rest of the book was awesome.

  • Florian Castle
    Florian Castle 8 hours ago

    I wish they would do 4 seasons: Season 1 - the later reign of Viserys I, setting the scene for the Dance Season 2 - the Dance up until Rhaenyra takes King's Landing Season 3 - the rest of the Dance, ending with the hour of the wolf Season 4 - the Regency. The series ends on a high note with Aegon firing everyone, reunited with Viserys. Obviously you'd have to do some age changes for a TV show (Age up Rhaenyra's kids so Aegon is like 14 at the end of the Dance, making the regency only a year and a bit), and maybe compress some stuff into a few years for Season 1, but I think it could work.

    Also, I completely agree with Preston, I felt the same way about “A Feast for Crows” the first time I read it! But the Ironborn and Dornish did grow on me. (The Dornish especially due to Preston’s videos as mentioned in the podcast).

    I could be wrong, but with the way Martin subverted so many other genre conventions, I really expected there to be more to the White Walkers that would make us totally change our ideas and perceptions of them. Instead of just a typical boring evil force that just wants to destroy. (Also, I would have loved for “GoT” the show to have either ended with Bran’s eyes flashing like a White Walker’s or it being revealed that Bran was being controlled by the Children and they had manipulated events to place their pawn on the throne.).

    Maybe they could organize the serie in a way in which each season tell the story of a specific period of time and there is a significant gap of time between each seasons. Because of that, many of the characters would change from season to season and we could also see recast of actors if their characters grow up too much.

    As to Carmine’s idea about trading out cast members. You could “the” cast as secondary characters in the season before they become the main ones. You would see them enough for people remember them when they become the main cast maybe a couple of times every other episode.

    GRRM made a post on his blog talking about the leaks. He confirmed that there will be dragons, that’s neat. He posted a picture of Fire and Blood and said there were tons of possible stories to use and said the title was not the obvious one, so it won’t be called Fire and Blood. The Dance of Dragons seems like a pretty safe guess to me. I can see it playing out a lot like the first season of GOT but replace Robert with Viserys I and have the season end with his death starting the civil war between the blacks and the greens just like the Lannisters and Starks.

    If you have lots of young actors (like GOT) it's certainly sensible to have each season last a year.

I personally don't give a hang about the prequels. Honest to god the first thing i thought after the immediate disgust of season 8 was... Well... At least Preston can get back to his theory videos. I don't understand how anything from fire and bloodcan be decent with everyone having spoilers for the outcome. We wanna hear book theories ans discussions! Also, I asked on Twitter but never got an answer... Who came first Preston Jacobs or Cantuse? The two most (in my opinion) knowledgeable of asoiaf internet people. Gigantic fan of both!

    To be fair prequels about the Long Night would have very little source material and would take place at a very distant and unrelatable time of this universe. I believe what made GoT successful was the political drama and the wars. Bloodmoon is the weakest of the options, at least from what we can tell

    My only issue with Fire and Blood is that the tosspot author felt it was more important to create a bloody prequel instead of finishing his last book, knowing full well the show was catching up fast. People might hate those two showrunners and I don't blame them. But for 6 seasons (yes even season 6 was more or less okay) the writers did perfectly and brought us an amazing show; they had source material to work with. But due to GRRMs negligence and laziness, the last book never got out in time. and the writers had to pull ideas out of their asses

    Fire and blood as a prequel show would be amazing. The dance of the dragons, Aegon’s conquest, Battle above the god’s eye, Maegor the cruel, would all be amazing. It would also be very cool for them to go past Aegon III and show the blackfyre rebellions, bloodraven, all leading up to Robert’s Rebellion, which would be very awesome

    As I've been told, the prequel wouldn't be about Fire and Blood, but the dance of dragons, using the part of Fire and Blood that explains this conflict. GRRM said that book had enough material for two shows (Aegon's conquest and the dance of dragons). They're going with the most interesting one.

    Fire and Blood isn’t a bad book. It’s just a lot of people are mad that this came out instead of Winds of Winter. It also looks like the the Blood Moon one is being cancelled.

    So he’ll be working on script for this too guaranteeing winds won’t be out another 5 yrs minimum, yet he didn’t work on the script for GoT and evidently did nothing with his time except sit around doing interviews and watch thrones fall apart but not writing winds. I’m sorry but I’m not a big fan of Martin as a person phenomenal writer but once thrones for popular he cared about notoriety and being famous, he got fatter and lazier I just hate seeing him doing interviews and all these TV show scripts, we only care about you finishing the ASOIAF books that ruined the tv show. No one wants you to do anything but finish the series.

    Honestly- Zero excitement for anything GoT from HBO.

Also, there were "dragons and fantasy junk" in the GoT show so it wouldn't be all that much heavier on fantasy than the show was, probably.

    Each major section of the book could be it's own miniseries if they went into detail. There could be a section about Aegon's conquest and his failed war in Dorne. The succession of Aenys and his weak rule being thwarted by the faith militant. Maegor's usurping his kids and cruel reign. The regency of Queen Alyssa and Jaehaerys' ascends. His long peaceful rule which is contrasted by the deaths of most of his children. It's all incredibly rich material.

    Fire and blood was surprisingly good in my opinion. I was never able to finish "A World of Ice and Fire" because it read like a factual history book, but Fire and Blood read like a novel. I finished it in a week or two and I feel it would be perfect for a prequel if they'd concentrate on one King in stead of wanting to tell the whole book in ten or twenty episodes. Jaehaerys or Aegon himself would be the obvious best picks.
