Game of Thrones – 205 – The Ghost of Harrenhal

Jim and A.Ron re-watched Game of Thrones episode “The Ghost of Harrenhal”, break it’s neck, and throw it off a parapet.  Just kidding, but we do bite into it like Jaqen into an apple.  We discuss tortured metaphors, Brienne’s rushing into commitments, Stannis’ reluctance to face The Truth, and Arya’s fun and exciting new friends at Harrenhal.  All this and a bunch of interesting feedback, and a lore and history packed SpoiLore section!  

Game of Thrones – 204 – Garden of Bones

Jim and A.Ron re-watch episode 204 of HBO’s Game of Thrones series, “Garden of Bones”, and mine a rich vein of almost forgotten Peak Tyrion. We also got gummed up with a clumsy arrival of Daenerys at the great city of Qarth, and Jim can’t take Lancel seriously, and we’re both really bummed out about the arrival of this season’s re-cast “Mountain”, but the arrival of the fantastic Papa Lannister single-handedly makes up for all of it.  Another great season 2 episode, is what we’re saying, and we have some terrific feedback to go along with it.

Game of Thrones – 203 – What is Dead May Never Die

Jim and A.Ron continue their re-watch campaign of HBO’s Game of Thrones with “What is Dead May Never Die”.  There is some really strong stuff in here; Tyrion’s canary trap for the Small Council, the heroic and badass last stand of Yoren, the introduction of two fantastic new characters in the forms of Brienne of Tarth and Margary Tyrell.  But there is also some less fun stuff; like anything to do with Shae. But all in all a great episode despite not featuring Dany or Robb.  All this discussion, plus a healthy heaping of feedback ahead!

Game of Thrones – 202 – The Night Lands

A.Ron and Jim continue their rewatch of season two of HBO’s Game of Thrones with “The Night Lands”.  On this podcast, we discuss the opposite of a headless horsemen, Tyrion’s tragic flaws, Theon’s ignorance of his personal history and that of his people, the Iron Islanders, and the moral quandary of the Night’s Watch.  Also, A.Ron apologizes for muffing up the White Raven lore from the previous podcast.  All this and tons of feedback coming your way!

Game of Thrones – 201 – The North Remembers

And now our (re)watch begins with “The North Remembers”, the season two premiere of HBO’s Game of Thrones series.  We’ll be working our way through the entire second season, the first half of the episode is entirely spoiler free for first time viewers, then we’ll have a mini-SpoiLore section after we play the end of pod theme music for people who are caught up on the books / show.  In this episode we’re appreciating Tyrion’s swagger, Sansa’s strength, Robb’s toughness, and Jon’s girlish good looks. We’ll have more every Tuesday over the next ten weeks, so settle in for a long trip down GoT memory lane!  See you next week!
