Game of Thrones “The Last of the Starks”

After spending the first half of the season mostly setting up and wrapping up the great war with the White Walkers, “The Last of the Starks” needed to pivot hard to move the narrative back to the fight for the Iron Throne. Game of Thrones is strongest when it leans […]

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 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 […]

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 “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 […]
