We congratulate HBO on the quality of their streaming video

What with the staggering success of The Shiznit's If the Oscar-nominated movie posters told the truth feature, as if they need another link to it, our site goes down every now and then because of the volume of traffic and it's tied to theirs somehow. Don't ask me how; Luke deals with all that from the supercomputer in his underground lair. He's basically Gus Gorman in Superman III.
Tonight is one such now and then, meaning I've been left with very little time in which to put this up and maintain our unbroken one-post-a-day run for 2012. But when you need quick content, you can always rely on HBO to throw another trailer at you for a forthcoming season of something or other.
As I said above, the definition of this video is really quite excellent. You can take it all the way up to full screen and it still looks good. It's come to something when you get exercised about streaming quality, but I'm not ashamed to admit it. What's actually in it, though? Well, five words: Charles Dance on a horse.
But on a horse.
