My general policy on publicist emails is to either ignore them, or to make fun of them. (For examples of the latter, see here and here.)

This time, though it pains me, I’m actually going to be positive. Earlier today, I received a note from Direct TV asking me to check out a Game of Thrones map they put together, and my natural skepticism was muted by my fervent love for the HBO series entering its fifth season. Here’s what the email said:

It’s an interactive map of the Game of Thrones Known World, that allows you to pick any episode, and chronologically follow the characters and events that took place at every location featured in that episode.

It sound like a great idea, and I was happy to see that the execution was equally solid. Click that link to check it out—even if you have a perfect memory of everything that’s happened in the series so far, the illustrations are worth a visit. I navigated season by season, and enjoyed reliving the drama through this map way, way more than I thought I would.

The new season premieres next Sunday, April 12 on HBO.

(PS, I promise Direct TV is not paying us anything for this post. Unfortunately.)
