Game of Thrones – 308 – Second Sons

Jim and A.Ron consider the latest episode in our summer re-watch of season three of HBO’s Game of Thrones. “Second Sons” features the second happiest wedding we’ve ever seen on Westeros (which is damning with non-existent praise), Arya swinging from utter despair to something approaching optimism in her captivity with the Hound (the sweet, summer child), as newcomer Daario Naharis steals into Dany’s camp attempts to steal Dany’s heart. We discuss all this and more!

Game of Thrones – 307 – The Bear and the Maiden Fair

On this week’s episode of our summer Game of Thrones rewatch, “The Bear and the Maiden Fair”, Brienne picks on someone her own size, Joffery tries talking politics with his grandpa, Robb YOLOs his way through a fraught political position to buy some extra time to consort with his queen, and Sansa and Tyrion lament their respective fates. For feedback we discuss the relative intelligence of wights, debate the apparent height of the Wall, and consider people’s pet theories on what things will look like post series-finale of Thrones. See you back here next week!

Bald Move TV – Sharp Objects Ep. 7 – Falling, Castle Rock

On today’s BMTV, we discuss the penultimate episode of HBO’s Sharp Objects, “Falling”, as well as our thoughts on the first six episodes of Hulu’s Castle Rock. Sharp was an especially wild hour, chock full of stomach churning child abuse and problematic sex scenes between damaged and self-destructive people, before promising a truly epic conclusion from the setup of a five way collision between Camille, Amma, Adora, Alan, and Chief Vickers. Will Detective Willis find his way into the middle of this perfect storm? 

Game of Thrones – 306 – The Climb

We’re back with another terrific season three episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones, “The Climb”. Of course the title refers to the Wildlings’ epic climb of The Wall, but also Littlefinger’s unhinged speech about chaos delivered to a shell shocked Varys. Both are amazing in their way, as is Lady Olena and Lord Tywin’s political duel in the Hand’s chambers. We discuss all this plus tons of fan commentary and questions!

Game of Thrones – 305 – Kissed by Fire

Lots of things get “Kissed by Fire” in this episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones. The Hound. Jon Snow. Leslie’s Rose. But in all seriousness there is so much good packed into this hour of Thrones; Robb beheading an important bannerman in the pouring rain; Jaime venting a lifetime of frustration and regret upon an unsuspecting Brienne; Tywin managing to bitterly disappoint both of the children he has in his presence; and Dany looking more and more like the Conquerer that she thinks she’s destined to be. Join us for a lengthy discussion of all of this and more, and just a metric ton of feedback from your fellow fans. See you next week!

Game of Thrones – 304 – And Now His Watch Is Ended

We really enjoyed “And Now His Watch Is Ended”, the latest episode in our summer rewatch of HBO’s Game of Thrones series. Packed with intellectually satisfying intrigue, as well as one of the more satisfying action scenes in Thrones history, it has something for just about everyone. We ponder the comeuppance of Tywin’s children, the finer points of contract law in Essos, and the altruism of the Tyrells. Plus, a super sized mailbag and the promise of another next week!
