Game of Thrones is and will always be one of the greatest TV shows of all time, and it keeps proving that time over time. Last year, Game of Thrones was voted as the greatest TV show of the 21st century by a poll conducted by Digital Spy. Recently, another such poll was held by BBC, and Thrones managed to secure a decent position in the ranking.

BBC Culture tweeted the list with the text, “These are the 100 greatest TV series of the 21st Century, as voted for by 206 critics from 43 countries. #TVOfTheCentury.” Game of Thrones ranked 5th on the list. The Wire was at the top of the list.

In total, 460 different series were voted for by 206 TV experts – critics, journalists, academics, and industry figures – who came from 43 countries, from Albania to Uruguay. Of these voters, 100 were women, 104 were men, and two were non-binary. Each voter listed their 10 favorite TV series of the 21st Century, which we scored and ranked to produce the top 100 listed below.

The annual poll by BBC Culture is conducted by film critics and industry experts from around the globe, who pick the best titles in a particular category. Though previous years saw listicles like greatest films directed by women and best non-English language movies, the curators decided to turn the spotlight on TV shows in 2021. This, keeping in view the role played by the small screen in the last two years during the coronavirus pandemic.

It has been quite some time since Game of Thrones finished its run on TV but the fever of ice and fire still excites a large part of the fan base across the world. More so because our beloved Westeros will surely return in different avatars; the most notable being House of The Dragon, a prequel based on George R.R. Martin’s Fire And Blood. The latest among such offerings is going to be a Game of Thrones Studio Tour. Set in Northern Ireland, it was teased for a long time and opening was delayed due to the pandemic.

Though announced back in 2019 with a prospective 2020 opening date, the global pandemic has pushed back the opening to what looks to be some time next year.

Among the open positions: studio tour guides, station personnel, payroll, and even the general manager. While some of the recruitment days have already passed, those in Belfast are still ahead and can be found below:

Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is one of the high-priority projects at HBO currently underway. The production is moving swiftly despite hitting some minor obstacles along the way, as indicated by the regular leaks occurring all over the internet. A few weeks ago, the House of The Dragon team had to take a temporary break from filming in the Spanish city of Caceres as an important crew member fell ill due to coronavirus. We finally have some news regarding the filming of the scenes in the area, and also more news from other sites.

House of The Dragon will resume filming in Caceres from November 3, 2021, according to a report by the Spanish newspaper Hoy. HBO contacted the extras the very same day the case was reported and informed them that the recording will take place at the beginning of November, on the 3rd theoretically. The case does not seem very serious, since the cancellation of the last day of filming in Cáceres did not seem to affect the rest of the locations. However, we still await further news from Monsanto about the filming, though some of the prequel’s stars have been spotted in the Portuguese city.
