Kinslayer | Game of Thrones “The Dance of Dragons” Review

The Dance of Dragons was a typical Game of Thrones episode, and I say that in the best way possible. The season thus far has been relatively kind to characters we hold dear, but this second to last episode is always the exclamation point of the season. We’ve had some

Unlikely Alliances | Game Of Thrones “Hardhome” Review

Game of Thrones’ eighth episode, “Hardhome,” finally gave us the blood and guts for which we’ve been waiting. Winter is finally here, (it only took five seasons), allegiances are being made, and truths are being spilled. We even got to see a very broken Cersei Lannister awaiting trial from her

Total Power | Game of Thrones “The Gift” Review

Game of Throne’s “The Gift” continues the ongoing trend of slower episodes rounding out the season. Compared to other seasons, this season has been abnormally slow, but that wasn’t so much a problem early on in the season. The first handful of episodes did a great job of setting up

Becoming Someone Else | Game of Thrones “Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken” Review

As the title suggests, “Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken” deals heavily with the Dornish storyline that’s coming to a head. We do, though, get to see some great scenes with Arya continuing her journey with the Faceless Men, a social injustice with Cersei at the helm and a particularly eerie scene with

The Faith Militant | Game of Thrones “The Sons of The Harpy” Review

Game of Thrones is making sure that we never really know what is going on in Westeros and the Seven Kingdoms. “The Sons of the Harpy” gave us the character development we’ve been craving in Stannis Baratheon as well as the blood and fighting we love to see on the

No Mercy | Game of Thrones “High Sparrow” Review

Game of Thrones is setting up very interesting storylines in “High Sparrow.” Houses are about to unite. We were treated to a rather boring wedding. Rough exteriors were shed. It was an episode of growth and manipulation. We are only a few weeks in, but it is already clear that

The Faceless | Game of Thrones “The House of Black and White” Review

Game of Thrones is starting out its fifth season strongly with “The House of Black and White.” We got our first looks at both Braavos and Dorne. The faceless men, including our favorite Jaqen H’ghar, prove to be very mysterious so far this season. We’re only starting out in Westeros

HBO Bringing Programming To Amazon Prime Instant Video

Last month, Amazon increased the price of a Prime Membership from $79 to $99 to very mixed reactions. The question always is, will this benefit me? Apparently, the answer is yes because Amazon and HBO have inked a deal to bring programming exclusively to the Amazon Prime service. The deal
