Game of Thrones “The Bells”

I can’t help but wonder what it would have been like if we had an entire season in between the battle between the living and the dead in “The Long Night” and siege on King’s Landing that was the main feature of “The Bells.” For what it’s worth, “The Bells” […]

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 “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 Preview: “The Spoils of War”

HBO attempted to keep episode four of this season of Game of Thrones under extra lock and key, not even releasing an episode synopsis (though hackers had their own plans, but we digress). This kind of secrecy hints at “The Spoils of War” being a major episode, and the trailer […]

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 […]

Three Things We Want to See in Game of Thrones Season 7

And we’re back! It’s been a long 12 months since the finale of season six of Game of Thrones aired. We ended last season with the nearly perfect “The Winds of Winter” (and we highly suggest reading the review of it as a refresher).

Game of Thrones “The Winds of Winter”

This season of Game of Thrones has been about expectation. Expectation our characters have and the ones all of us watching have. And a lot of times, these expectations let us down. Bran finds out his noble father wasn’t so noble; Tyrion finds out dealing with the slavers isn’t so […]

Game of Thrones Season 6 Finale Preview: “The Winds of Winter”

After nine harrowing weeks, all we have of this season of Game of Thrones is the finale. With the more limited scope of last week’s “Battle of the Bastards,” “The Winds of Winter” is posed to cover a whole lot of ground to compensate.

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 “Blood of My Blood”

After last week’s somewhat lackluster showing, it was hard to predict what direction this week’s Game of Thrones was headed. I hesitate to call it filler, but rather, “Blood of My Blood” abandoned emotional beats, like those heavily relied on in “The Door,” to instead serve as a set-up for […]
