Jim and A.Ron review a shocking episode 109 of HBO’s Game of Thrones series, “Baelor”. Things are going surprisingly well for Robb in his campaign to meet the Lannister forces in battle, surprisingly bad for Dany and Drogo over in Essos, and in King’s Landing? Well, all I can say is never hand a 15 year old boy-king an open mic.
Jim and A.Ron continue their re-watch of season one of HBO’s Game of Thrones series, with episode 108, “The Pointy End”. Another incredible early season episode, action packed with two epic fight scenes, direwolf savagery, zombie killings, Lannister wheeling and dealing, and intrigues and treachery galore. All this, and a ton of feedback, plus our customary spoiler section at the end where we talk about lore, character motivations, foreshadowing, and the rare continuity problem or two.
Jim and A.Ron are thrilled to be back for a sneaky good episode 107 of HBO’s Game of Thrones, “You Win or You Die”. Featuring the impressive debut of Daddy Lannister, a thrilling inspirational (before it gets scary) speech by Drogo, and more scheming, machinations, and back stabbing than you can shake a bundle of rushes at. Classic Game of Thrones, basically. All that, plus super-sized mailbags of both the unspoiled and spoiler variety, coming your way.
