Bloodmoon Bleeds Out! By Michael Ferguson
The TV show Game of Thrones was highly politically correct, with the usual race stuff, empowered feminists and the like, but the prequel show was to be over-the-top “woke.” However, it will not be, mercifully:
“THE Game of Thrones prequel starring Naomi Watts was axed after HBO decided the £30million 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. But after three years of work, the show — which had the working title Bloodmoon — was suddenly shelved for good this week. HBO instead announced a different prequel called House of the Dragon, said to be more similar to the original series. The ten-parter will be based on George R.R. Martin’s book Fire & Blood. 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. “Plainly it was too ambitious for bosses who thought it might alienate viewers. The talk is that the new script is very average but deemed a safe option.”
I was “disappointed” to read this. I had contemplated, in my drunken moments, writing a film script, Gay, Gay, West, about how the West was won by gay cowboys and gay Indians, and another film about a team of transgendered superheroes fighting evil white super-racists, Trans Heroes vs Trumpsters, but now this has fired cold water upon my great ideas. Back now to my previous project of showing that Abraham Lincoln was really a 12-year old drag queen.
