Game of Thrones Winners and Losers: Oathbreaker

Game of Thrones Winners and Losers: Oathbreaker
Hi, all! Again I had issues with HBO Go freezing up on me. I’m starting to think it’s me. I’ll try to have it worked out next week, but you’ll find the pictures this week are a mishmash of old and new, good and bad. Kind of like the characters on Game of Thrones itself.... Read more »

It’s that time of year again, the time when you have to think about buying a gift for your cousin who lives in his parents’ basement and spends most of his time trolling George RR Martin on Twitter.

The Head of "The Class"

The Head of "The Class"
John and I were watching David Simon’s new HBO miniseries last night (Show Me a Hero); and who should pop up but Jon Bernthal, AKA Shane, AKA The Class. If that name doesn’t ring a bell yet, it will. He was Shane on The Walking Dead. He was in Fury and Me and Earl and... Read more »

Game of Thrones Winners and Losers: Mother's Mercy
It’s a season finale, but instead of our favorite characters’ storylines being wrapped up neatly and nicely, most of our heroes are stuck in cliffhangers and have found themselves on the losers’ list. Ouch. Let’s see how the finale treated everyone. Enjoy this post? Click like on the Hammervision Facebook page and join the party.... Read more »

Game of Thrones Winners and Losers: The Dance of Dragons

Game of Thrones Winners and Losers: The Dance of Dragons
I have MANY THOUGHTS about Stannis. I just…I’m having a hard time understanding why the Game of Thrones writers would spend so much time getting us on Stannis’s side this season only to have him do that horrible thing he did. Anyway. Here are this week’s winners and losers. SPOILERY PREDICTION… … Here it comes.... Read more »

Game of Thrones Winners and Losers: Hardhome

Game of Thrones Winners and Losers: Hardhome
Well, that was a fabulous episode of Game of Thrones. In rewatching it for screen grabs this morning, I was really struck by how great the Hardhome stuff was. Just perfect. This is how you enhance the books, TV writers. And nary a rape in sight! A few things, that may be spoilery, so proceed... Read more »

Game of Thrones Recap: Hardhome

Game of Thrones Recap: Hardhome
Yasss. This is what we’re talking about, Game of Thrones. After suffering through a few episodes that ranged from middling to quite objectionable, we got an hour of TV that was as riveting during its quiet moments as it was during the big action set piece at the end. And…hmmm…who was missing from this episode?... Read more »

Game of Thrones Winners and Losers: The Gift

Game of Thrones Winners and Losers: The Gift
In the Game of Thrones game of winners and losers, either you win, lose, or, in the case of Stannis’s horses, die. This week, in the aftermath of Sansa’s rape, we saw more rape (of course we did), a few boobs, a flayed old lady, and a woman brought down for diddling her cousin. Girl... Read more »

Game of Thrones Winners and Losers: Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken

Game of Thrones Winners and Losers: Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken
Folks, we need to talk about Ramsay. I remain on the fence about the sexual assault that happened at the end of the episode. On the one hand, I think it was a lazy creative choice. No one’s character is advanced here, except maybe Theon’s, and who cares about him. On the other hand, the... Read more »

Game of Thrones Winners and Losers: Kill the Boy
This was another setup episode with a lot of pieces moving around the chess board — Stannis and Jon are leaving the Wall, Dany is making decisions that will affect things going forward, Gilly is STILL THERE. Who were your big Game of Thrones winners and losers this week? Enjoy this post? Click like on... Read more »
