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 “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 […]

Game of Thrones “Battle of the Bastards”

For all of my complaints about Game of Thrones’ inconsistency in quality this season — that the dialogue is weak, the scenes are too pandering, twists too predictable — the show never fails to be fun. It’s a show that envelopes you, brings you in, and it’s probably the only […]

Game of Thrones “High Sparrow”

Like a bad penny, Jorah Mormont shows up when you least expect him. Tyrion warns Varys that he’s losing his mind being cooped up during their travel to Meereen. Volantis seems like a good place to get a breath of fresh air. Even though Tyrion knows the danger, he’s willing to […]
