Game of Thrones Winners and Losers: The Dragon and the Wolf

Loser #10: Gilly<br><br>Sam only has room in his life for one obnoxious friend at a time. Gilly, you’ve been replaced.
It’s over! Sadface sadface sadface. And the show won’t be coming back for way too long. But I’ll still be here, writing about things and stuff. I wrote a book! It’s YA novel, THE SOUND OF US. You can find the details right here! Kirkus calls it “a winning story about a teenage voice student that hits all the... Read more »

You've never watched Game of Thrones. Here's your cookie.

You've never watched Game of Thrones. Here's your cookie.
There’s a hip new sport, and it’s sweeping the nation. No, #sheetcaking is over. What all the real “in the know” folks are doing these days is posting on FB about how they don’t watch Game of Thrones, they won’t watch Game of Thrones, and they “don’t get” Game of Thrones, even if they’ve never...

Game of Thrones Recap: The Dragon and the Wolf
I have questions. King’s Landing: So. Number one, how did Grey Worm free himself and the rest of the Unsullied from the siege at Casterly Rock? Did I miss something? Was this part of the parlay agreement? Did Grey Worm’s guys manage to get out because the Lannister army was decimated and then some during... Read more »

Beyond “Winter is coming”: 11 other Game of Thrones references to indicate impending doom

Beyond “Winter is coming”: 11 other Game of Thrones references to indicate impending doom
I was watching the Morning Joe today (I KNOW), and their guest, Rep. Somebody Something from Ohio, indicated that he believes “Winter is coming” for the Trump administration. I appreciated his attempt to “appear hip” and “connect with the kids,” but using “Winter is coming” is like me saying “T.A.R.D.I.S.” in conversation. It’s like a mule... Read more »

Game of Thrones Winners and Losers: Beyond the Wall
I feel like we’re all losers this week. I wrote a book! It’s YA novel, THE SOUND OF US. You can find the details right here! Kirkus calls it “a winning story about a teenage voice student that hits all the right notes.” I also wrote another book, Any Boy but You, (You’ve Got Mail in the Pokemon... Read more »

Game of Thrones Recap: Beyond the Wall
This all could’ve been avoided if… This was an entertaining, if utterly preventable (in, really, every way), hour+ of television. Let’s check in. Winterfell: Are you still #teamarya? I’m not. Never have been, really. And Sansa is 100% in the right here. (Full disclosure, I’ve been #teamsansa since pretty much the beginning of time.) Yeah, Sansa... Read more »

Sometimes all you can do is eat cake

Sometimes all you can do is eat cake
My feelings about Tina Fey’s Weekend Update #sheetcaking rant have swung wildly over the past few days. Here’s the journey my mind has taken: Watching the skit –I like her glasses. I want her glasses. –Okay, this is going to be a thing where they cut away from her every once in a while so she... Read more »

Game of Thrones Winners and Losers: Eastwatch
In the Game of Thrones Winners and Losers post, either you win or I hate you. That’s becoming the case more and more. Yes, there are objective losers, and we salute those who burned to a crisp in this episode, but then there are those whose storylines aren’t doing them any favors. They are the real... Read more »

More table setting tonight and people getting from here to there faster than you can say “Littlefinger’s magic carriage,” but there were some really, really good moments in this episode. Let’s check in with our friends. (Time is meaningless at this point, right? Bran was beyond the wall for “years” and it takes Jaime a... Read more »

Game of Thrones Winners and Losers: The Spoils of War

Game of Thrones Winners and Losers: The Spoils of War
In the Game of Thrones winners and losers post, you either win or you lose. So far this season, some of our perennial winners have been missing from the top spots. Tyrion, Littlefinger, and Varys have been lying low after playing 4-D chess for so long. They need to make some moves soon. I want... Read more »
