HBO on Tuesday published the first official trailer for the eighth and final season of fantasy drama series Game of Thrones.

“We always knew this had to be a story that ended when it was time for it to end, and not one that got dragged out until it had worn out its welcome,” creators David Benioff and Dan Weiss told The Hollywood Reporter in an interview last month.

Knowing when to call it quits is often the difference between a good show and a legendary show. Breaking Bad, for example, nailed it while others, like Dexter, carried on longer than they should have.

Season eight is unique in that it’ll only have six episodes. The first six seasons of the series each had 10 episodes while last season condensed the action down to just seven episodes.

The final season of Game of Thrones is set to premiere on April 14 with a new episode airing each Sunday until the finale on May 19.

Less episodes, similar number of screen minutes to recent seasons. According to leaks the last four episodes will each be a mini movie and 80 minutes long.

They slowly have gotten longer over the years, with several episodes of season 6 and 7 over an hour long.

GoT has been outstanding. I was thinking about this as I was listening to yesterday's news story about Spielberg trying to keep Netflix away from the Oscars.

Made for TV content is beginning to match the cinema for production values and quality, and it has a lot to do with improved tech in the home and mobile.

Sad thing Spilberg is getting old... Cause anyone who thinks Netflix productions can't go to the Oscars got an old mentality.
