Game of Thrones- “Kill the Boy” Recap

11 May

  Though the pacing is still a bit too slow for my liking, Game of Thrones kicked things up a notch with “Kill the Boy,” the season’s best episode by far. I should note that one of the reasons I probably liked this episode more than others was it neglected the series’ worst and most [...]

Game of Thrones- Season 5 Premiere Mega Recap

14 Apr

I was so excited in the hours leading up to last night’s Game of Thrones premiere I could barely think straight. It’s rare for me to get so excited about a piece of pop culture these days; I’m older, I’m more cynical, and I can more easily see through Hollywood’s deceptive veil. But man, Game [...]

12 Apr

Tonight’s the night! 3. The Rains of Castamere Season 3, Episode 9 Written by David Benioff & D.B. Weiss Directed by David Nutter The Red Wedding.

6. The Children Season 4, Episode 10 Written by David Benioff & D.B.

Ranking the Assassin’s Creed Franchise, Part 7

3 Apr

2. Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag I LOVE PIRATES. So this should have been an easy sell for me, but after Assassin’s Creed III introduced me to the most boring Assassin ever and botched Desmond’s present day plotline in the most egregious way possible, I was about ready to ditch my favorite game franchise. Black [...]

Ranking the Assassin’s Creed Franchise, Part 6

2 Apr

3. Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood Other than Black Flag, Brotherhood, technically the third game in the series, still has the best overall gameplay, and its combat is superior to every other title released thus far. It was the first game to introduce chain-kills, which allowed the player to turn Ezio into a dizzying flurry of blades [...]

1. Person of Interest- “The Cold War” “Wars have burned in this world for thousands of years with no end in sight, because people rely so ardently on their so-called ‘beliefs.’ Now they will only need to believe in one thing: me. For I am a god.” Game of Thrones may have absorbed me last [...]

Game of Thrones- “Walk of Punishment” Recap

15 Apr

Head over to the ZEFR-U blog to check out my latest Game of Thrones recap. Last night’s episode, “Walk of Punishment” was absolutely awesome. It was a great tribute to the novels on which it is based, but also struck a very unique tone that made the episode feel almost like a standalone, one-off story [...]
