[TV] Game of Thrones – Mhysa (S3E10)

After last week’s wedding went as horribly wrong as weddings could possibly go, it falls to this episode, titled ‘Mhysa’ to deal with the aftermath of those awful events as well as wrap up the season’s individual storylines. Now this in itself isn’t a particularly enviable task – by brining all these various characters back … Continue reading [TV] Game of Thrones – Mhysa (S3E10)

[TV] Game of Thrones – Rains Of Castamere (S3E9)

To say that I was looking forward to this episode would be to misrepresent that odd mix of dread and anticipation that comes with watching the build up to a massacre; you know what’s going to happen yet watching it unfold in front of your eyes, there is an irrational part of you that is … Continue reading [TV] Game of Thrones – Rains Of Castamere (S3E9)

[TV] Game of Thrones – Second Sons (S3E8)

This was, all in all, one of the most awkward 40 odd minutes of television that I ever had to sit through. Alright, it wasn’t all bad, but damn if that wasn’t one of the worst weddings imaginable. Even the Red Wedding was better planned and executed than that mess. I guess it would have … Continue reading [TV] Game of Thrones – Second Sons (S3E8)

[TV] Game of Thrones – The Bear And The Maiden Fair (S3E7)

After the great character development in the last episode, it feels like this episode is getting geared for the season’s finale. The various pieces are moving into place and the various conflicts that our characters are experiencing, whether internal or external, are beginning to bubble up again. They haven’t reached breaking point just yet but … Continue reading [TV] Game of Thrones – The Bear And The Maiden Fair (S3E7)

[TV] Game of Thrones – The Climb (S3E6)

One of the things that kept me hooked to this series, whether the television adaptation or the original novels, is how every now and then these incredibly fleshed out characters will get these moments of clarity and tell it like it is. We got a little bit of that with Jaime last episode but I … Continue reading [TV] Game of Thrones – The Climb (S3E6)

[TV] Game of Thrones – Kissed By Fire (S3E5)

This was a pretty depressing episode, all things considered. We’re midway through the season and most of the plotlines that I was keeping an eye on have been proceeding more or less on schedule but I’ll be damned if knowing what’s going to happen isn’t making this very difficult to watch. I don’t really mean … Continue reading [TV] Game of Thrones – Kissed By Fire (S3E5)

[TV] Game of Thrones – And Now His Watch Is Ended (S3E4)

There have been times in the past where I’ve been fairly critical of the HBO adaptation. Given how closely I’ve followed the novels, I think it’s almost inevitable that I’ll eventually turn into one of those bitter book-only fans that criticize every single aspect of the adaptation. Thankfully, I have not become that despicable creature … Continue reading [TV] Game of Thrones – And Now His Watch Is Ended (S3E4)
