Game of Thrones – 706 – Beyond the Wall – Instant Take

A.Ron and Jim are loving this episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones, “Beyond the Wall”, that is admittedly about 20% ridiculous and 80% pure awesome.  I know that 20% is going to bother a lot of you guys and gals, but come on!  So many epic things are happening!  Ice zombies! Dragons!  Ice zombie dragons?!?  Don’t worry about the logic of Jon’s plan, or his idea of fighting a ridiculous single man rear guard, or the Night King’s questionable targeting decisions.  In our book, when Game of Thrones follows the Rule of Cool, it tends to rule plain and simple.  Tell us why we’re wrong!  We’ll talk about it, at length, Tuesday.  See you then!

Game of Thrones – 705 – Eastwatch – Instant Take

Jim and A.Ron have seen the very latest episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones, “Eastwatch”.  There was some awesome stuff no doubt, a very special someone picks up a hammer, two brothers reunite, Ser Davos out-Han Solos Han Solo, and Sansa and Arya bicker like season one.  But the creaks and cracks of the Double D’s kicking the plot into hyperdrive are starting to be heard and felt.  Hopefully it’s just a minor case of dragon indigestion, and not a sign of more serious tears and holes in the realistic, grounded, dragon and zombie infested world they’ve so carefully constructed.
