  • Game of Thrones Season Four: A Retrospective

    Season four was largely about moving chess pieces into place for future seasons.  With the notable exception of Oberyn Martell, our main group of named characters spent the entire ten episodes positioning themselves for next season’s plot.  It kind of dragged, honestly.

  • Game of Thrones Season Two: A Retrospective

    Unlike season one, I went into Game of Thrones season two with three full books worth of knowledge under my belt.  I was a bit pickier, a bit salty at the changes, and a lot less surprised at many of the twists.  But I still enjoyed the hell out of it. Read our before commenting. […]

    I’ve been lucky enough to take part in many Game of Thrones panels at Dragon Con throughout the years – every year since 2012, in fact – but this year, the new High Fantasy track really went above and beyond with their Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones offerings, including an awesome panel called […]


  • Game of Thrones 7×3 Review: The Queen’s Justice

    Game of Thrones is a show I have a love/hate relationship with.  “The Queen’s Justice” is an episode that reminds me mostly of what I love about the show, but the things I hate still lurk in the background.
