Delineating his favourite episodes, Cogman once said that the initial two episodes are a must for anyone looking to get involved in the world of Westeros as they ‘really make you care’ about the characters.

He said: “I remember watching a rough cut of the opening sequence (in which Jon bids farewell to his family and heads for the Wall) on my laptop in Belfast and thinking, ‘This works! We have a show!'”
Enough reminiscing now, what about LOTR? All things considered, we don’t have a clue about such much about it yet but filming for the TV series is expected to begin in August.
As reported by a TV industry source, the £1 billion series will begin shooting in only a couple of months, with a studio in Scotland reserved as the base for much of it.
Speaking to the Daily Record in April, the source said: “Lord of the Rings producers are hoping to start filming at the new studio from about August to November. A lot of arrangements are already in place. All that remains now is for it to be up and running in time – so the clock is ticking.
“It’s anticipated production will return for another three months from next March (2020). There could be more after that. It’s a massive contract and a gigantic boost for the studio and for Scotland.”
