Game of Thrones – 207 – A Man Without Honor

Jim and A.Ron consider “A Man Without Honor”, the latest season two episode on our re-watch of HBO’s Game of Thrones.  This episode is about revealing the true characters of people like Jamie, Cersei, Tyrion, Tywin, Shae, Sansa, and Robb, and the thing you take away is that these are all people, multifaceted, conflicting, contradictory, but in a way that feels human and real.  And Dany, is you know… looking for her dragons.

Stranger Things – Season Two Preview!

Jim and A.Ron get hyped for season two of Netflix’s Stranger Things!  We discuss the various trailers, interviews, previews, try to piece together the plot and make predictions, discuss our hopes and fears, and consider a bit of feedback before signing off until next weekend.  Again, our plan is to marathon the season over the weekend of October 27th.  That means we’ll have all 9 episodes out and covered before Monday morning.  Got feedback?  Send it in to the links below and we’ll consider it on our season two wrap up podcast!

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!
