Game of Thrones “A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms”

When’s the last time in the history of Game of Thrones that we had two episodes in a row that were, I don’t want to say uneventful, but maybe the word is quiet? Relaxed? Sort of, chill? Just as in the season premiere “Winterfell,” “A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms” […]

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 Preview: “Beyond the Wall”

As we all know, Game of Thrones likes to go big in the penultimate episode of each season. Judging by the trailer for “Beyond the Wall,” this season is no different. And the message has been telegraphed loud and clear: Winter is here. We closed last week’s episode with Jon […]

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 “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 “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 Preview: “Battle of the Bastards”

The penultimate episode of Game of Thrones is finally here. Episode nine is often a major battle-centric episode in each season of the show, and frequently these episodes become some of the best of the series and feature the most defining scenes. Case in point: Ned’s beheading and the Red […]

Game of Thrones “The Broken Man”

This week’s Game of Thrones “The Broken Man” reminded us how literally damaged many on the show really are. The Hound, Jaime, and Theon, physically. All of them and then the entire cast of characters when you take in consideration mental and emotional damage. But for all the broken men […]
