Recorded on April 16 2016
Jordan Taylor from The High Files podcast joins the Watchers in this last interim episode (henceforth known as “The Precasts”) before the premiere of Season 6.
In this episode:
The Watchers on the Couch will return to a weekly release schedule next week, for the duration of the season.
“I’ve never been much of a podcaster. Apologies for what you are about to hear.” – Tim
There was a technical difficulty this episode. By technical difficulty we mean Tim forgot to hit record at the top of the show. The first portion of this episode’s audio was taken from the video camera audio.
In this episode we review the new Game of Thrones Season 6 Red Band trailer, Ian McShane has some opinions about people that get worked up over spoilers, there is some confusion whether George R. R. Martin is alive, and Sarah gives an update on the state of Fan Fiction Theater.

It’s the first episode of the new year and the Watchers are excited for the new season. ThorHammer’s Chris Naes returns to the table as we talk about Jon Snow’s possible return, Blu Ray commentary on Season 4, and George R. R. Martin’s take on our former NFL team, the St. Louis Rams, returning to Los Angeles.
We also try to speak Dothraki and watch The Mountain lift two refrigerators.
Opening music for the 2016 season of The Watchers of the Couch is Ice and Fire by Ross Bugden
AKA: The episode that is barely about Game of Thrones. This episode, we are joined by Chris Naes of the band ThorHammer, and his illustrious girlfriend, Lindsey. Season 6 is in production and we discuss some current rumors and news regarding the upcoming season. Barely. Fictional worlds collide as we talk about other works featuring Game of Thrones cast members, including Star Wars, Terminator: Genisys, and… uh… Last Action Hero.
Also, this is a monumental podcast crossover event in the studio! After listening to this, be sure to checkout the upcoming episode of Chris’ podcast: On the Road with ThorHammer.
