So we've actually been on a roll for a few good episodes. Do things get even better?

Episode 23 - Walk of Punishment

At LAST!Collapse )

Game of Thrones - Episode by Episode #22

I had a free hour today, so I decided to watch another episode.

Episode 22 - "Dark Wings, Dark Words"

So they start explaining magic in the third season. Better late than never.Collapse )

Game of Thrones - Episode by Episode #21

The last episode, while not great, wasn't bad, and since I had some spare time, I watched a second episode of Game of Thrones, as I have to pick up the pace in order to finish this year.  So is there such a thing as too much of a good thing?

Episode 21 - "Valar Dohaeris"

Okay, now I get it, or do I?Collapse )

The battle is over, and it's a return to the status quo, or is it?

Episode 20: "Valar Morghulis"

No good deed goes unpunished.Collapse )

Game of Thrones - Episode by Episode #19

Jul. 3rd, 2019 | 12:27 pm

So I had to take a break from Game of Thrones, because the last two episodes were a downturn in an otherwise good season.  How much lower can it go? Let's find out!

Epsiode 19: "Blackwater"

When Jon Snow and Daenerys are away...character development comes out to play.Collapse )

So the last episode was a dud. Is this one a dud? Take a wild guess.

Episode 18: "The Prince of Winterfell"

Mama Stark is as stupid as her husband.Collapse )

Game of Thrones - Episode by Episode #17

Jun. 2nd, 2019 | 06:44 pm

I knew we had too long of a string of good episodes.  At least there wasn't bad sex.

Episode 17: "A Man Without Honor"

l'm not even bothering to hide any spoilers, because nothing of value happened, except the following:

  1. Daenerys, "Mother of Dragons" is in yet another jam with an usurrping figure.

  2. Jon Snow has a Pine Barrens experience and gets captured by Wildlings.

  3. Prince Waterboy* goes after the escapees and shows two hanged, burned corpses, supposed to be them (yeah, right).

  4. Sansa got her period, something that was being waited on since the beginning of the first season.

In fact, the only thimg that was a surprise to me was that the old man who was the Maester, who I thought ran away from Winterfell, was actually in Winterfell all the time.

Don't get me wrong. It's clear this episode is a setup for a payoff, but again, half of it was angsting and whining.

Seriously, unless I missed something critical, I'd say you probably could have skipped this episode or at least fast-forwarded it.  Even Tyrion's scene seemed obligatory.

*If you've never watched Game of Thrones, that's not his real name, so don't worry.

Game of Thrones - Episode by Episode #15

The last episode was gore and torture, so it's time for an episode with plot, and wow, there is plot.

Episode 15: "The Ghost of Harrenhal"

Because things can't be that easy, can they?Collapse )

Game of Thrones - Episode by Episode #14

May. 18th, 2019 | 08:10 pm

Yep, this show literally swings from porn, to plot, to gore, in that order. Since we had sex in episode 12, plot in episode 13, that means episode 14 is time for seeing torture and pain. At least this was mostly good episode.

Episode 14: "Garden of Bones"

Surprisingly fewer bones than expected despite the title....Collapse )
