Quick Pitch: HBO should do Harry Potter series after Game of Thrones

harry-potter-hbo-pitch

I’ve already got the promo art ready!

Hi HBO!

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.  Check this out:  Read the rest of this entry

ANOTHER Game of Thrones Season 5 prediction

We’re three episodes deep in Game of Thrones Season 5 and I’ve kinda changed my whole take on the show and what’s important, where it’s going, etc.  If I’m right, House Stark matters more than I realized.

Family Tree (TV series review)

Eight episodes there are and eight episodes there ever shall be of Family Tree because HBO cancelled that shiz.  But, as something of a Chris O’Dowd completest, I must delve into this show and see what it’s all about.  Join me!   Read the rest of this entry

If you’ve never seen We Stand Alone Together (The Band of Brothers Documentary), now’s the time to check it out. Then, check out the Band of Brothers miniseries. Read the rest of this entry

Thoughts on Game of Thrones, episode 9, season 2

Episode 9 is described as the penultimate episode of season 2 and "Blackwater" certainly lives up to that billing. This is probably the biggest episode of Game of Thrones up to this point – all the potential, finally realized. It’s glorious! Read the rest of this entry

Thoughts on Game of Thrones, episode 8, season 2

I feel that I should, at least in part, rap a sentiment portrayed by Game of Thrones, Season 2, Episode 8. Lay down a beat, yo.

Ahem:

His name is Theon and he’s here to say, he likes being Prince of Winterfell in a major way!

For some reason, I feel that this sort of archaic rapping suits Theon perfectly. Read the rest of this entry

Thoughts on Game of Thrones, episode 7, season 2

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

Thoughts on Game of Thrones, episode 6, season 2

Replace “Hess Truck” with “boobs” and you’re good to go.

Episode 6 of Season 2 brings you the most story centric boobs in an episode of Game of Thrones that I can recall. And they’re not gratuitous! It’s truly incredible! Read the rest of this entry

Thoughts on Game of Thrones, episode 5, season 2

No boobs? There’s no boobs in Game of Thrones, episode 5, season 2? Surely it cannot be so? But… correct me if I’m wrong, but I think this episode was boob free! Wonders will never cease! This is probably the best episode so far! Read the rest of this entry

Thoughts on Game of Thrones, episode 4, season 2

game-of-thrones-logoI hope no one finds this offensive, but my theory that Game of Thrones is written, directed and produced by the world’s smartest twelve year old boys has been confirmed by this episode. Read the rest of this entry

Thoughts on Game of Thrones, episode 3, season 2

game-of-thrones-logoThis beginning/midish point of season 2 of Game of Thrones is kinda plodding. The little that is going on isn’t especially interesting and it’s as though every single scene is developing a different thread of the overall plot. I think I’d rather they devote each episodes to two plot threads instead of five, but that’s life. Read the rest of this entry
