We've seen a lot of television network hackers that leak very popular programs, but we don't always see a television station leak a show themselves! How did HBO let this happen?

HBO's big accident

For a brief time, Sunday's episode of "Game of Thrones [VIDEO]" was leaked onto HBO consumer platforms in Spanish and Nordic territories. The error originated from a third party. As soon as HBO learned of the error, the episode was removed. However, the episode was up for an hour, which is plenty of time for the episode to be ripped and shared throughout the world.

The footage was posted on many different websites, including YouTube and Reddit, but was quickly taken down.

HBO has dealt with "Game of Thrones" leaks before, such as the leak of an episode during season six. However, most episodes weren't as important as the one leaked this time.

On August 6 there was a leak of episode four in India. The Indian Police have arrested four men in Mumbai for the Game of Thrones leak. Three of the men currently work for Prime Focus Technologies while the other man is a former employee. The men appeared in court on Monday for a preliminary hearing, but the police have until August 21 to press charges against the men. This is the first time something like this has happened in the history of Star India.

Between all the leaks from so many different areas and people, there have been way too many "Game of Thrones" spoilers floating around for loyal television watchers.

Fortunately, these leaks don't seem to be impacting ratings too negatively.

This 'Game of Thrones' season has its own issues

Many "Game of Thrones" fans have their issues with the way that the series is panning out. Taking a book series and turning it into a movie or, in this case, a television show means that some things will be left out. However, many important conversations between characters are being left out and leaving gaping plot holes.

There are very important relationships in the books and the show that are being completely ignored in the new season. When Gendry met Jon, why would it not be brought up that he knows Arya pretty well? Why does Jon Snow opt not to tell Daenerys that he was close to Maester Aemon Targaryen?

It's a disappointment to fans who want all the pieces put together, and it's disrespectful to the way that George R. R. Martin wrote the books in the first place. Why are these details being tossed so carelessly to the side?

Only time will tell if these get tied back together this season.
