A.Ron went back and saw the newest Star Wars on his holiday break, and has a lot more to say. He turns to life long friend and fellow fan Jim Jones to help him talk through is feelings about the film, and his fears for the future of the franchise. Maybe you feel me, maybe you don’t, but I hope you all accept it as my honest analysis of the film. If you want to hear our first impressions, you can get them here.
Jim and A.Ron finish our retrospective re-watch of season two of HBO’s Game of Thrones with the finale, “Valar Morghulis”. It’s a typical GoT finale, in that it does a great job of setting up the next season as something you can barely wait to arrive. Arya could start super assassin training! The White Walkers are marching on the Night’s Watch! Dany’s dragons can spit fire! We talk about these topics and a ton of last minute feedback before signing off with some spoilers for season 2 as well as debating a few lingering season 7 stuff in the secluded SpoiLore section. See you next year!
Jim and A.Ron re-watched Game of Thrones episode “The Ghost of Harrenhal”, break it’s neck, and throw it off a parapet. Just kidding, but we do bite into it like Jaqen into an apple. We discuss tortured metaphors, Brienne’s rushing into commitments, Stannis’ reluctance to face The Truth, and Arya’s fun and exciting new friends at Harrenhal. All this and a bunch of interesting feedback, and a lore and history packed SpoiLore section!
Jim and A.Ron re-watch episode 204 of HBO’s Game of Thrones series, “Garden of Bones”, and mine a rich vein of almost forgotten Peak Tyrion. We also got gummed up with a clumsy arrival of Daenerys at the great city of Qarth, and Jim can’t take Lancel seriously, and we’re both really bummed out about the arrival of this season’s re-cast “Mountain”, but the arrival of the fantastic Papa Lannister single-handedly makes up for all of it. Another great season 2 episode, is what we’re saying, and we have some terrific feedback to go along with it.
Jim and A.Ron continue their re-watch campaign of HBO’s Game of Thrones with “What is Dead May Never Die”. There is some really strong stuff in here; Tyrion’s canary trap for the Small Council, the heroic and badass last stand of Yoren, the introduction of two fantastic new characters in the forms of Brienne of Tarth and Margary Tyrell. But there is also some less fun stuff; like anything to do with Shae. But all in all a great episode despite not featuring Dany or Robb. All this discussion, plus a healthy heaping of feedback ahead!
A.Ron and Jim continue their rewatch of season two of HBO’s Game of Thrones with “The Night Lands”. On this podcast, we discuss the opposite of a headless horsemen, Tyrion’s tragic flaws, Theon’s ignorance of his personal history and that of his people, the Iron Islanders, and the moral quandary of the Night’s Watch. Also, A.Ron apologizes for muffing up the White Raven lore from the previous podcast. All this and tons of feedback coming your way!
And now our (re)watch begins with “The North Remembers”, the season two premiere of HBO’s Game of Thrones series. We’ll be working our way through the entire second season, the first half of the episode is entirely spoiler free for first time viewers, then we’ll have a mini-SpoiLore section after we play the end of pod theme music for people who are caught up on the books / show. In this episode we’re appreciating Tyrion’s swagger, Sansa’s strength, Robb’s toughness, and Jon’s girlish good looks. We’ll have more every Tuesday over the next ten weeks, so settle in for a long trip down GoT memory lane! See you next week!
Welcome to our coverage of the final episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones series, “Fire and Blood”. This episode provides a bit of both substances. We talk about the surprising success of Dany’s little ritual, a shockingly spry Grand Maester, the promise of an epic ranging of the Night’s Watch, and Robb being proclaimed DA KING IN DA NORFFF!! by his loyal bannermen. Not to mention tons of feedback, and our spoiler section safely tucked at the end of our podcast to avoid the ruination of future episodes for the first time fans.
Jim and A.Ron review a shocking episode 109 of HBO’s Game of Thrones series, “Baelor”. Things are going surprisingly well for Robb in his campaign to meet the Lannister forces in battle, surprisingly bad for Dany and Drogo over in Essos, and in King’s Landing? Well, all I can say is never hand a 15 year old boy-king an open mic.
Jim and A.Ron are thrilled to be back for a sneaky good episode 107 of HBO’s Game of Thrones, “You Win or You Die”. Featuring the impressive debut of Daddy Lannister, a thrilling inspirational (before it gets scary) speech by Drogo, and more scheming, machinations, and back stabbing than you can shake a bundle of rushes at. Classic Game of Thrones, basically. All that, plus super-sized mailbags of both the unspoiled and spoiler variety, coming your way.
