Game of Thrones: The Children

thechildren1

A sprawling Game of Thrones finale leaves us with plenty to think about, and plenty to look forward to. What this season finale did was essentially destroy everything you knew about Game of Thrones. Whatever characteristic or relationship defined a character for the last four seasons, it changed in this episode. People are traveling far […]

Game of Thrones: The Watchers On the Wall

ygritte

Roughly every two seasons, Game of Thrones takes an entire episode to focus solely on a single epic battle. This was one of those episodes. There are Wildlings at the gate. I love it when Game of Thrones narrows its focus like this. This is probably a drum I’ve beat too often, but this show’s […]

Game of Thrones: The Mountain and the Viper

little

On this week’s Game of Thrones, it’s the battle of the century, Oberyn Martell, the Red Viper of Dorn, versus Gregor Clegane, the Mountain That Rides. Let’s get ready to…actually, a bunch of other, even more important stuff happened too. After some establishing scenes that firmly establish that Moletown is a nugget of crap smothered […]

Game of Thrones: Mockingbird

mockingbird51

A collection of small, yet brilliant moments made this an excellent Game of Thrones episode, all leading up to…well, a character death, if you can believe it. We begin with Jaime visiting Tyrion in jail, angry that Tyrion screwed up the deal he negotiated with Tywin to save Tyrion from a death sentence. Tyrion points […]

Game of Thrones: The Laws of Gods and Men

Tyrion’s on trial, Stannis bets on himself, and the war continues in the north on this week’s Game of Thrones. Is Tywin Lannister the key to Lannister power in King’s landing, or will it all crumble if he dies? Stannis is betting big that it will crumble, and that Tywin’s age (67) means he won’t […]

Game of Thrones: First of His Name

crown

After several weeks of excellent episodes, Game of Thrones spins its wheels a bit this week. Not that it was a terrible episode, but not much happened. Of course, even if it’s a mediocre week for Game of Thrones, I’m always sad when the episode ends. I could watch three hours of this show every […]

Game of Thrones: Oathkeepers

walk

A brilliant Game of Thrones episode lays bare the politics of King’s Landing and reveals something strange about the White Walkers. The first half of the episode mainly concerned goings on in King’s Landing. What I loved is how it made all the scheming and plotting and lying clear to the viewers. Often Westeros politics […]

Face Off: Heavenly Bodies

rashaad

Remember last season when I made fun of the ballet finale? Well they actually found a way to make it worse. So much worse. I’m going to spend some portion of this recap mocking the finale itself, because it was eminently risible. But to be totally clear, George, Tyler, and Rashaad are awesome and did […]

Game of Thrones: Breaker of Chains

Everyone is still playing the Game of Thrones, but the interesting thing this week is who actually still enjoys it. In the immediate aftermath of the murder, Sansa flees and is lead to a ship by her fool of a savior. Littlefinger is aboard the ship, all whispers and lies. He reveals the method of […]

Face Off: Cry Wolf

wolfy

A classic supernatural showdown cuts the Face Off field to the final three. Last week’s non-elimination challenge lead directly to this week’s second part. Each artist has to make a werewolf that is the nemesis of last week’s international vampire. Sounds good. This was a mostly uneventful episode. George had trouble with his injured wrist, […]
