Game of Roles, Game of Thrones S4e10

zap-game-of-thrones-season-4-episode-10-the-ch-008Hi Readers,

It’s been a fortnight since the finale and originally I was going to name this post with some pun related to “How to Train Your Dragon” or a comment about farm boys because of Grenn, or something relating to Father’s Day because Tywin’s was less than optimal. That being said there wasn’t a particular scene that I thought was better done than others (well there’s one exception… sort of) and every actor (even in the scene I loved least) played their role so well, hence the title. So, let’s dive into the finale of season four! Continue reading “Game of Roles, Game of Thrones S4e10” »

LOL, Game of Thrones S4e8

oberyn-vs-the-mountain-fight-poster-682x1024Hi readers,

As I mentioned in my post for the mid-season finale of Mad Men, life’s been crazy busy, so this post is later than usual. My plan though is to be on schedule for blogging about the GoT finale this Sunday. That being said, let’s look at why I laughed so much during “The Mountain and the Viper”.

Now don’t get me wrong, it was an intense episode, and distressing for several reasons, but if this episode taught us anything it’s that sometimes when things are so bad that you could laugh or cry, it’s definitely better to laugh.

Hodor? Game of Thrones S4e4

images1Hi readers,

Hodor. Yep that’s about as much as I could articulate immediately after the end of Sunday’s episode. Then as I thought more about it my next thoughts were “Effing Craster!!!”, jumbled with questions about White Walkers, boys vs. girls, and again “Effing Craster!!!”, but since all those thoughts are from the last scene of the episode, my notes on them will be in the last portion of the blog.

“The Finer Points of Bad Behavior”, Game of Thrones S4e3

0x600Hi Readers,

So it seems that Sunday night, while I was trying desperately to sleep on a train back fromĀ WonderCon Jaime was trying desperately to sleep with Cersei. Only one of achieved our objective, and had it been me the achievement would have been controversy free. It was of course however Jaime, and if nothing else Game of Thrones proved once again this week that it has no fear of ruffling feathers in the least decent ways possible, that being said, let’s get to the recap.

All in Good Time, Game of Thrones S4e2

Game.of.Thrones.S04E02.HDTV.x264-2HD[16-05-12]Hi Readers,

So this past Sunday we got another episode of Game of Thrones that book readers have been anticipating for years, and while it didn’t necessarily have the shock factors that made the Red Wedding epic, the history that was made at Joffrey’s royal wedding will have a profound effect on everything from our favorite characters to the shape of things to come for Westeros as a whole. So stay with me as I begin to describe my renewed faith in the series and the miserable people that inhabit it. In the spirit with the title, I’ll be having this post progress from least to most gratifying. Continue reading “All in Good Time, Game of Thrones S4e2” »
