Game of Thrones – 101 – Winter is Coming

And now our Watch begins. Jim and I start the process of backfilling our Game of Thrones Podcast catalog by revisiting the series premiere, episode 101, “Winter is Coming”. If you’re new to the series, don’t fear, we don’t spoil anything for future episodes, but we do have a Spoiler section at the end of our podcast for people who want to stick around and talk about the show in the broader context of having seen all six seasons or read all of the available books.

Fargo – 101 – The Crocodile’s Dilemma

Jim and A.Ron break down their thoughts on the first episode of FX’s new series, Fargo, “The Crocodile’s Dilemma”. In the podcast, we discuss the parallel’s between plot and characters of other Coen productions, such as “Fargo” and “No Country for Old Men”, how well they nailed the look, sounds, and “feel” of “Fargo”, and how the show runners cleverly played with some of our assumptions about how the characters would act and behave. All this, plus a smattering of feedback, and a few words of warning regarding some serious spoilers floating around on the ‘net.
