Final Thoughts on Game of Thrones Season 5

17 Jun

It is a strange world we live in, where grimdark is now the norm for Hollywood cheesiness. You wouldn’t think a show where a little girl is burned alive and another serially raped could be cheesier than its source material, but somehow David Benioff & D.B. Weiss have managed just that.  Despite its fantasy setting, [...]

An X-Files Retrospective, Part 12

16 Aug

The X-Files- Season 8 Sigh. That exclamation pretty much sums up how I feel about The X-Files’ penultimate season.

ENDGAME- “What They Died For” Recap

During my sophomore year of college I rewatched the first and second seasons of LOST in preparation for the third season premiere. This is actually how Alison got into the show, but it was also a period where my friend and roommate Jordan would sit down and watch some episodes just so he could make [...]

LOST- Obligatory Home Stretch Bloodbath

11 May

In response to last week’s submarine massacre and in anticipation of tonight’s heavily mythology-centric episode, “Across the Sea,” I have decided to present you with my list of who will live and who will die in the final 4.5 hours of LOST. Other websites have done this, including IGN, but I didn’t like their conclusions [...]
