2,000,000 Hits!

On the very same day of the Season 5 finale of HBO’s Game of Thrones, Race for the Iron Throne crossed the big two million mark. I’m really astonished to see how quickly this blog/podcast/column is growing, with all but one month this year crossing the six figure mark (which had only ever happened once before in the blog’s history). More importantly, the community of people subscribing and commenting is growing steadily, making for some great conversation and debate (which is the fun part).

So I wanted to say thank you, and that (once I get some important work done in the next week), there will be some very cool celebratory stuff happening.

    Congratulations, Steve!

    Congratulations Steve.

    And wow! What an episode…6 character deaths…well five really since Jon’s coming back but still.

    Who will be left to rule Westeros after this (assuming Tommen dies, which seems a certainty)? It looks like it’s down to Littlefinger vs Daenerys. I think I’d prefer Littlefinger. At least he only does evil when he intends to, rather than inadvertently from the best of motives.

    Congratulations, Steve. You’re providing what is, for my money, the most high-quality commentary in the fandom.

    Also, tonight’s episode sucked, apart from the Arya and Cersei stories. I don’t think anyone can quibble that D&D never liked Stannis at this point.

    On the whole Season 5 had many moments of sheer poetic brilliance-but as a whole there were some major pacing issues.

    To be fair to D&D though, the source material had some notorious pacing problems too, and I think they were struggling the whole season with that. Hopefully season 6, will be an improvement in that area.

    In any event, I’m stuck watching the show to the bitter end if nor other reason then it’s the only way I’ll ever know how ASOIAF is supposed to end.

  6. Congratulations, I hope the next 2 million hits comes in a year’s time too.

    I found the finale hilariously bad. It’s just toddler-level construction at this point.

    Congrats Steven and keep the good work rolling!

    Yeah, Ep 10 was not good. But we’ll get to that…

  9. Son of Fire says:

    You’ve earned it,well done!!!
