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- Thoughts on Episodes 3 & 4

4 May

I want to start off by saying that despite any quibbles I may express, I have the utmost respect for showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. I don’t think fans quite realize the immense amount of pressure put upon them or the sheer volume of work they put in every year. They have basically been [...]

Game of Thrones- The House of Black & White Recap

21 Apr

As we enter week two of Game of Thrones’ fifth season, events start to ramp up despite a noticeably slower pace. The pacing here feels deliberate, and with some exceptions, each storyline is moving forward inch by inch. This is the nature of the show at this point, so I’m not so much criticizing as [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Game of Thrones- “Dark Wings, Dark Words” Recap

8 Apr

George R.R. Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire series is an extremely complex and complicated collection of novels, so much so that by book four they cease to feature any central narrative or arc and kinda just tell you what’s going on in Westeros in real time. It’s kind of astounding that a television adaptation [...]

Game of Thrones Season Premiere Recap

1 Apr

Head over to the ZEFR-U blog to read my take on last night’s season three premiere of Game of Thrones. There’s so many characters now that the show feels a little all over the place, but it’s still amazing and solid. Not jumping the shark, and a lot of surprises for people like me who’ve [...]

The Walking Dead- “This Sorrowful Life” Recap

25 Mar

Head over to the ZEFR-U Blog to read my latest Walking Dead recap. I expected the episode to be nothing more filler designed to further stall the inevitable showdown of Rick vs. Governor we all know is coming. It was actually pretty great and focused on one of my favorite actors on the show, Michael [...]

My return to the world of blogging continues. Head over to the ZEFR-U blog to read my recap of last night’s antepenultimate Walking Dead episode, “Prey.” I thought it was a pretty solid episode that actually made me care about the usually detestable Andrea for once.
