Game of Thrones Winners and Losers: The House of Black and White

#10 Loser: Arya<br><br>She stepped foot on Braavos thinking things were about to break her way. She wasn’t quite right. However, now she’s in the House of Black and White with A Man, and he is going to teach her his ways. Things could be better for Arya, but they could be way worse.
We are all Game of Thrones winners this week because of Jaime in his Westerosi-style bomber jacket. He has given us a gift and we must never forget it. Also, we saw Arya reunite with an old friend, Sansa continue to be sullen and mysterious, and Jon Snow get a promotion. Robb Stark, however, is... Read more »

Game of Thrones recap: The House of Black and White

Game of Thrones recap: The House of Black and White
This title is making me think of black and white cookies. I’m not sure why that’s important, BUT IT IS. This week we met some new friends, touched base with some old ones, and said goodbye to that one guy we kept mistaking for Grey Worm. Let’s check in with everyone, shall we? Braavos: Arya...

Game of Thrones Winners and Losers: The Wars to Come

#10 Loser: Samwell Tarly<br><br>He’s a man of the Night’s Watch, who is never supposed to marry. But now he’s got himself a Wall wife in Gilly, and she seems to have settled right into her role of nagging sitcom spouse.
In the Hammervision Game of Thrones winners and losers post, either you win or you lose. It’s that simple. This week was pretty even. Not a lot of clear winners and losers. I suppose that comes with this being a setup episode. That said, there are a lot of losers in this post who have... Read more »

Game of Thrones season premiere review: The Wars to Come
We’re back in Westeros for the fifth season! Get ready for the next ten weeks to fly faster than the blink of drunk Tyrion’s eye. N.B. I just want to point out that I have read all five books in the Song of Ice and Fire series, but I’ve only read them once and I... Read more »

The worst thing about the NCAA basketball tournament

The worst thing about the NCAA basketball tournament
My alma mater (Butler University) played during the late game last night, and they delivered an amazing game against Notre Dame. It was close the entire time, though they ended up losing in extra minutes. Roosevelt Jones is my new name/basketball hero. But as far as TBS/CBS/Les Moonves/whoever makes these kinds decisions were concerned, the... Read more »

The Walking Dead review: What happened was a whole lot of not much

The Walking Dead review: What happened was a whole lot of not much
I was going to write something about how this episode, the mid-season premiere of The Walking Dead (“What Happened and What’s Going On?”) was a really long, drawn-out way of showing us how Tyreese lost his arm; but, alas, by the end of it, Tyreese had lost a whole lot more than just a limb....

TV Tidbits: Super Bowl counter programming; your certain, imminent death

Billy Crystal wants to see less sex, gay or otherwise, on TV. The world would like to continue seeing no Billy Crystal sex on TV, thank you. FOX is rebooting The X-Files and Prison Break because it’s been a minute. Actually, yeah. It’s been, like, literally a minute since those shows went off the air.... Read more »

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Pre-emptive condolences to <a href="https://twitter.com/OfficialJLD">@OfficialJLD</a> on her Golden Globes loss this evening. Work harder, you are embarrassing us.</p>&mdash; Timothy Simons (@timothycsimons) <a href="https://twitter.com/timothycsimons/status/554393970474631168">January 11, 2015</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>
Like Blake Lively and artisan jam or some such, I’ve curated all the best tweets from last night’s Golden Globes. The show itself was DULL. Amy Poehler and Tina Fey were barely there. They had promised a no-holds-barred romp. We got…Margaret Cho dressed up as a North Korean soldier. The jokes were lame, but, for... Read more »

TV Tidbits: Game of Thrones premiere date, Justin Bieber's package, and Golden Globes predictions

TV Tidbits: Game of Thrones premiere date, Justin Bieber's package, and Golden Globes predictions
Sorry for no TV Tidbits yesterday. It wasn’t my fault! This wasn’t me saying I’m going to do something and then dropping the ball a few days later. This wasn’t 40 Bags in Forty Days, Redux. I liked a post on Facebook that spoke favorably about net neutrality and then Comcast put me in internet... Read more »
