Raised on a healthy diet of equal parts Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Family Matters, and The X-Files, Anisha has been an avid TV watcher since she was probably too young to be. Due to her extensive knowledge of television shows, past and present, she's killer at pop culture trivia and doles out TV recommendations to anyone who asks. A midwestern transplant living in the Texas, you can find her explaining to strangers that Pawnee isn't a real place in Indiana and trying to convince others that the rival high school from Glee was based on her high school (really!).

Game of Thrones Season 8 Preview

I’m not necessarily the best at predicting what’s going to happen on the shows I write about. But I’ll say this, I was 100 percent correct when I closed my last Game of Thrones review with, “Until next year (or the year after at this rate).” Trailer So here we […]

Netflix’s Sacred Games Is the Thriller We’ve Been Craving

Summer’s final binge-watch: Sacred Games breathes new life into the TV thriller genre. Much to my dismay, I’ve noticed that some of the leaves on the tree in my neighborhood are starting to change color. The days are getting shorter. The pools will be closing in a few short weeks. […]

Game of Thrones “The Dragon and the Wolf”

Well, “Winds of Winter” that was not. In previous years, hearing that a Game of Thrones season finale would be pushing 90 minutes in length would have left me excited and full of anticipation. After all, lots of excellent episodes of this show are longer than average in duration. Why wouldn’t “The […]

Game of Thrones “Beyond the Wall”

It’s disappointing to see a premise with so much potential fall apart in execution. An episode fully devoted to the real threat to the north is as promising as any concept in the Game of Thrones world. But in many ways, “Beyond the Wall” was one step forward and two […]

Game of Thrones “Eastwatch”

Between the dragon battles and the speechifying that sometimes take up large parts of Game of Thrones, “Eastwatch” set out to remind us that this show is actually about connections.

Game of Thrones “The Spoils of War”

Now that was a battle scene. We knew Daenerys was approaching her breaking point. Cersei has been pushing and pushing, and Daenerys has been itching to actually fight; much to Tyrion’s chagrin. But we’ve all known Dany’s a ruler of the people. She prefers to be hands on. So it […]

Game of Thrones “The Queen’s Justice”

At the end of last season, and even throughout this season’s premiere, it seemed Daenerys had all the means to stroll in and take the Iron Throne without much difficulty. It seemed like good had a chance to triumph over evil, and swiftly with the support of the masses. Of […]

Game of Thrones “Stormborn”

Game of Thrones has a villain problem. It’s clear that this season’s “big bad” is Euron Greyjoy, the insufferable uncle of Yara and Theon. He blew in at the tail end of season six, a menacing figure shrouded in mystery. And although he’s somehow proved himself a capable conqueror (I find […]
