  • Vikings: More, Give Me More, Give Me More…

      This is an entirely spoiler-free article. About a year ago, The History Channel released its original series, Vikings. Spearheaded by Michael Hirst, who wrote the film Elizabeth, the HBO show The Tudors, and more, it was clear that the historical accuracy of Vikings wasn’t going to be the main focus of the show. In fact, from […]


  • A Recap of Ice & Fire…Con, That Is!

    Last weekend was the second annual Ice & Fire Con, a Song of Ice & Fire/Game of Thrones convention held at Ravenwood Castle in New Plymouth, Ohio. As one of the three organizers, obviously I’m quite partial to this convention, and while this year was quite different from our inaugural year, it seems that everyone […]


  • Game of Thrones 4×7 Review: Mockingbird

    It’s no secret that I’ve had a lot of issues with certain decisions that the Game of Thrones writers have made this season, and with tonight’s Mockingbird I, as a huge Sansa fan, was on the edge of my seat. While there were a lot of great scenes leading up to the big one – […]



  • Game of Thrones 4×4 Review: Oathkeeper

    Quite the opposite of last week’s Breaker of Chains, the fourth episode of Game of Thrones season four actually rendered me speechless for a little while. And not in a good way, though Oathkeeper did have some high points. The opening scene with Missendei and Grey Worm was sweet and actually a bold choice; the insight […]



  • RE: Forbes’ “Report from MegaCon 2014”

    I recently attended MegaCon in Orlando, Florida.  When writing my main con report I searched the Internet for other recaps of the event and I was frustrated when I came across an article from Forbes that called out all those people who ‘don’t read comics’. I mean, David DiSalvo has been buying comics since they […]


  • Game of Thrones 4×1 Review: Two Swords

    Though it definitely required the viewer to be paying attention (or, let’s be honest, to have read the books) the opening scene of the season four premiere of Game of Thrones was, in my opinion, one of the show’s strongest openings ever. Though I’ve had my gripes with the show’s interpretation of many things, the […]


  • MegaCon 2014: Enjoyable Despite its Growing Pains

    This year was my second time attending MegaCon in Orlando, Florida, but the convention itself has been around since 1993. Originally a comic book convention, eventually it expanded to be multigenre – and its attendance grows every year. In 2013 they claimed that around 65,000 people showed up; rumors are that this year they broke […]


  • The Walking Dead 4×16 Review: A

    When tonight’s season finale of The Walking Dead ended, I definitely had to take a few deep breaths before I could sit down and write this review. The thing is, I’m torn between applauding the writers and producers for making such brave choices and railing at them for taking some things more than a bit too […]
