7 Television Nerds We Adore

Calling all nerds and nerd lovers! You’ve come to the right place. This list isn’t for the best body, or the best smile, though it could be argued that our nerds could absolutely fit in those categories too. (Who said…

Ser Brienne of Tarth’s Page in the White Book

To say I am angry about the final role of my hero, Ser Brienne of Tarth, is an understatement. Perhaps even the understatement of the century. Now, before I begin my verbal evisceration of this real tragedy, I want to…

Is Love the Death of Duty? ‘Game of Thrones’ Says Yes

I had many issues with the Game of Thrones finale, as I established both in my review and in the roundtable, and there are probably still a few rants in my future about how badly this show bungled GRRM’s vision,…

‘Game of Thrones’ 8×06 Roundtable: “The Iron Throne”

This is it. “The Iron Throne” is the end of an era, for better or worse. We’re done with the weekly Game of Thrones discussions, and these characters, what they are, and what they can be, are back in GRRM’s…

‘Game of Thrones’ 8×06 Review: I Can’t Get No Satisfaction

Here we are, at the end, and I struggle to find words to describe what I just witnessed. Disappointing? Anticlimactic? Just plain nonsensical? Which all leads us to the question: Is this the most unsatisfying ending in the history of…

‘Game of Thrones’ 8×05 Roundtable: “The Bells”

Oh, Game of Thrones. How I wish you were anything but what you are. Or, at least, how I wish you’d chosen another path instead of this one. Let’s call this the roundtable of disappointment. Last week we were angry,…

‘Game of Thrones’ 8×05 Review: The Path Of Least Resistance

Ironic that I keep thinking of this phrase, one that I heard often in my childhood. Ironic because “The Bells” aired on Mother’s Day, and this was my mom’s phrase anytime we took the easy way out, which I will admit,…

‘Game of Thrones’ 8×04 Roundtable: “The Last of the Starks”

We’re just two episodes away from the end of Game of Thrones, and after what had been a superb season 8 so far, “The Last of the Starks” was just a disappointing episode all around, one that seems to be…

Jaime Didn’t Leave to Save Cersei. He Left to Protect Brienne.

“The things we do for love.” Bran Stark echoed back a variation of Jaime Lannister’s own words to him in 8×02. Jaime’s arc in both Game of Thrones and A Song of Ice and Fire has always been about the…

‘Game of Thrones’: Strength Doesn’t Just Come from Suffering

Suffering does not equal strength. Period. There was a lot to hate in last week’s Game of Thrones, from the fact that they killed off the only WOC in the show, to the show-runners apparently committing to  the least surprising…

‘Game of Thrones’ 8×04 Review: We Played Ourselves

To be fair, we should have known. To be fair, we played ourselves. We always knew this story wasn’t likely to have a happy ending, and yet the first three episodes of season eight had lulled us into a false…

‘Game of Thrones’ 8×03 Roundtable: “The Long Night”

Well, THAT happened. And by that, we mean, of course, the thing with Arya stabbing the Night King and ending the Long Night, but also absolutely every other second of this episode. Because love it or hate it, I think…

The Women of Winterfell: How Female Protagonists Can Define a War

The night of April 28, 2019 was one that few will forget. It was one of death, of triumph, of loss and of courage, all packed in to a stressful and highly anticipated 88 minutes of must see television. With…

‘Game of Thrones’ 8×03 Review: “The Battle of Winterfell”

ARYA FUCKING STARK. I almost feel like saying that’s it. That’s the review. What else can I say? What else needs to be said, really? Except, you know: Arya fucking Stark. We did it. And I say we because that…

Hot Take: Brienne of Tarth Should be the Next Disney Princess Because All Her Dreams are Starting to Come True

CAUTION: THIS POST CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR EPISODE 8X02 OF GAME OF THRONES. People tend think I’m bananas when I go on and on about how wonderful Brienne of Tarth is. I just can’t help it. I stan Brienne so much.…

‘Game of Thrones’ 8×02 Roundtable: “A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms”

Well, color me delighted, and shocked and utterly terrified. Because that was probably the most emotionally satisfying episode in the whole of Game of Thrones, and that doesn’t seem like it bodes well for the upcoming battle. But let’s not…

‘Game of Thrones’ 8×02 Review: A Tale of Three Love Stories

Winter is here, and with it comes the army of the dead, we only have four more episodes left of Game of Thrones, and I can  – and should – legitimately spend every single second of this review talking about…

‘Game of Thrones’ 8×01 Roundtable: “Winterfell”

Winter is here at last. At least, the metaphorical winter, aka the last season of Game of Thrones, and, of course, with it being the final season, we couldn’t stop at a weekly review, because there’s just so much to…

Watch Parties, Cosplay, and More: ‘Game of Thrones’ and Fan Engagement

April 14, 2019 marked a day I’d been looking forward to for nearly 2 years, the premiere of the final season of Game of Thrones. Game of Thrones has helped create a rich and engaging fantasy world that is actually…
