Game of Thrones review: The Children

Game of Thrones review: The Children
And now our watch has ended. Let’s just get this out of the way: I’m peeved that this episode did not end the same way the book A Storm of Swords ended. Last year, I thought maybe Season 3 would’ve ended with the ASOS epilogue, but no. I thought FOR SURE this season would end... Read more »

Game of Thrones Winners and Losers: The Watchers on the Wall

Game of Thrones Winners and Losers: The Watchers on the Wall
Argh! This is the penultimate Game of Thrones Winners and Losers post for Season Four! Exclamation points! How has this season flown by so quickly?!? This week, the only folks we saw were on and around the Wall, so not a very diverse group. Lots of Crows, lots of wildlings, zero Daenerys, so that’s a... Read more »

Game of Thrones Winners and Losers: The Mountain and the Viper

Game of Thrones Winners and Losers: The Mountain and the Viper
It’s not easy to find winners in Westeros right now. Everyone is balls deep (sorry, Grey Worm) in garbage. That’s what happens when we get to the final three episodes of a Game of Thrones season. Shit starts to get rough and real. Looking back on the season so far, there are only a few... Read more »

Game of Thrones Recap: "The Mountain and the Viper"

Game of Thrones Recap: "The Mountain and the Viper"
This episode of Game of Thrones was called “The Mountain and the Viper,” which, ha-ha, neither the Mountain nor the Viper showed up until the final five minutes. But, boy howdy, did they show up. The rest of the episode was a wee bit of table setting, reminding us of important things to remember before... Read more »

Game of Thrones Recap: "Mockingbird"

Game of Thrones Recap: "Mockingbird"
I feel like there’s some real forward momentum here leading up to the final three episodes of Game of Thrones. (Can you believe we’re already at the final three? This has gone quickly.) It looks like they’re setting up Tyrion’s trial by combat for the next episode (maybe; they could push it to Episode 9... Read more »

Game of Thrones Recap: "The Laws of Gods and Men"

Game of Thrones Recap: "The Laws of Gods and Men"
Another Game of Thrones episode, another hodgepodge of stories for the first half, followed by thirty minutes of one sustained story. I suppose this works for the show. We get a chance to check in with people we haven’t seen for a while (What up, Yara!), before getting into the episode’s “real” story, which in... Read more »

Game of Thrones Winners and Losers: First of His Name

Game of Thrones Winners and Losers: First of His Name
This latest episode of Game of Thrones, “First of His Name,” was Tyrion and Jaime-free (well, almost; Jaime was in the room while Tommen was being crowned king of Westeros, but that’s it), so two of our favorite losers are off the list this week. Who took their places? Who had a good week, and... Read more »

Game of Thrones recap: "Oathkeeper"

Game of Thrones recap: "Oathkeeper"
I have read the Game of Thrones books, even if sometimes it seems like I haven’t read the Game of Thrones books, but this was the first episode where I felt sort of lost. There was quite a lot of switching things up from the novels during this hour, and also a lot of focus... Read more »

Game of Thrones Winners and Losers: Breaker of Chains

Game of Thrones Winners and Losers: Breaker of Chains
Sorry for no recap last night, all two of you who were looking for it. I was with family for the weekend, and decided that hanging out with 3-D people was more important than taking notes on a TV show. I won’t let it happen again. Anyway, I thought last night’s Game of Thrones was... Read more »

Game of Thrones recap: The Lion and the Rose

Game of Thrones recap: The Lion and the Rose
Sorry, friends. The Lion and the Rose in thisĀ Game of Thrones episode were not Jaime and Loras finally making your fanfic dreams come true. Nope, the Lion and the Rose referred to in the title were Joffrey and Margaery because…somebody’s getting married! Blah blah Purple Wedding blah blah. This episode was all about books. Here’s...
