Game of Thrones Winners and Losers: The Winds of Winter

Game of Thrones Winners and Losers: The Winds of Winter
Argh, this episode was so good! I’ve been listening to the score on repeat! I made myself an outfit just like Cersei’s! (No, I didn’t!) While the season overall had its hits and misses, I felt like the finale was at least a three-run homer. Maybe not a grand slam. Maybe we could’ve done without... Read more »

Game of Thrones Recap: The Winds of Winter
This episode was fan. freaking. tastic. Everything, from the music to the editing, I loved it all. I’m in the tank for this episode. Let’s discuss. King’s Landing: There had been a lot of foreshadowing over the past few weeks about the wildfyre. Bran saw it in one of his visions. Qyburn  sent his child... Read more »

Game of Thrones Winners and Losers: Battle of the Bastards
Sorry for the no recap this week. I had written the whole thing (stupidly, I guess) in WordPress (like I always do) (like an idiot), and the entire piece was erased when the site asked me to log in again. Yay! But that means I have a lot to say about this week’s winners and... Read more »

American Idol: Top 8 Perform

When did Idol get down to the Top 8? I missed the show last week because…I forget why, but there was a reason. I swear it. But now we’re already down to the Top 8? Fox is really burning through this final season of Idol, except for the eleventy weeks of early audition rounds that... Read more »

American Idol Recap: Showcase #3, 2nd Top 12 Perform

Remaining 12 sang tonight. Tomorrow they will sing with Idol legends such as Daughtry, Sparks, CONSTANTINE, David Cook. Those are real legit celebrities (in the Idol universe). PREPARE YOURSELVES. Shelbie Z, “Work Hard, Play Harder” by Gretchen Wilson: The most interesting fact they could come up with about Shelbie Z is that she hates wet paper? Bodes... Read more »

Game of Thrones Winners and Losers: Mother's Mercy

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 recap: Mother's Mercy

Game of Thrones recap: Mother's Mercy
Looks like Game of Thrones blew all its Mother’s Mercy dollars on CGI-ing Lena Headey’s face on some naked lady’s body. That’s why we got to see so little of Stannis’s war against the Boltons. Way to budget, show. This was the Season Five finale and we didn’t get the Mother’s Mercy Lady Stoneheart ending... 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 Recap: The Dance of Dragons

Game of Thrones Recap: The Dance of Dragons
While the end of this Game of Thrones was pretty spectacular-looking, it was also kind of sloppy and couldn’t hold a candle (or a dragonfire-lit torch) to the Hardhome fight last weekend. But ANYWAY. Let’s get to it. Since first is the worst… Dorne: This was the thing that came to mind during the previously-ons... Read more »

Game of Thrones recap: The Gift

Game of Thrones recap: The Gift
Very tricky, Game of Thrones. When I saw what this episode was called, I thought the titular “gift” would be The Gift, AKA the bit of land Jon’s trying to lure the wildlings to. But it wasn’t about that gift, in fact, we barely spent any time with Jon at all this week. That said,... Read more »
