I know you guys are busy dominating the TV short season with Game of Thrones (although The Walking Dead franchise clearly has its eyes on the crown), but I’ve got a pitch for ya. Once the race to win the Iron Throne is over, it’s only logical that you find another big project to turn into your next must see series (forgive me if I don’t think Ballers is going to make your subscriber rates jump) and it really ought to be Harry Potter.

The Death of Jon Snow on Game of Thrones’ Season 5 finale “Mother’s Mercy” has touched off memorials, angry hash tags and fan theories on how he could return to the show.

5 Things We Learned From Season 5 of Game of Thrones that tell us who will die in Season 6 (and other thoughts)
Like the show itself, my reactions to Season 5 and predictions for Season 6 are something of a mess. Game of Thrones has used the last 10 episodes to set the stage of its darkest hour, but it has also inadvertently made some audience members swear off the show following the rape of Sansa Stark and the burning alive of little Shireen Baratheon.

I may have Game of Thrones on the brain. Hard to tell… I am glad that they stopped reminding us of every house’s motto in each episode.

For some reason, I feel that this sort of archaic rapping suits Theon perfectly. Read the rest of this entry
Some dude’s @ss crack? And sort of in service to the plot? The nudity on Game of Thrones has taken a back seat to the plot, and it’s great!
I think my overall impression of season 1 was that it was fine… you know, just – fine. When season 2 started up, I was annoyed to find I was being served up a much more complicated version of season 1… but then, shiz got real. Read the rest of this entry
