I mean, I get it. I know what it means. I mean, why is Daenerys so hopped up on this? What has she done to earn Jon Snow’s knee getting bent to her? It feels a little bit like she thinks she is entitled to be the queen of the seven kingdoms, even though to me it feels more like she’s saying “I’m back for my dad’s…
For three weeks, we have preached about how Game of Thrones teaches us everything we need to know about white America. So, this week, you might expect us to joke about how Sansa should’ve cooked for Bran when he came home from that long road trip, or how Euron Greyjoy is turning into Anthony Scaramucci. I bet you just …
By now you have heard about Confederate, the ill-advised, wildly-panned before it has even aired, and heavily-denounced HBO show that is the brainchild of Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B.

Based on the approximately four hundred hours of Next Food Network Star that I have seen, I gather that it’s hard to properly describe food to someone who can’t actually taste it. This apparently isn’t a problem for George R.R. Martin, who inserts long and varied food descriptions everywhere in A Song of Ice and Fire.…

So does anybody else here adore the quintessential, often villainous, always smirking actor Richard E. Grant, whose appearance livens up any production lucky enough to have him?
It was a dark time in these days of season six. So many missed connections, so many people who were this close to getting it together, only to have the gods Benioff and Weiss look down, and in their displeasure, force them apart.
What the hell, Game of Thrones?
So many spoilers to follow. Please enjoy this picture of emo Jon Snow:
Welcome back to the worst recap on the interwebs, where it’s all game, all thrones, all the time, and now we have all the feels on top of everything else, because now that it’s all systems go for Benioff and Weiss, we have all the plot. Seriously, back in the days when we were following the books it would have taken…
Let’s discuss guys!
The closing shot of last season’s Game of Thrones (Spoilers for anyone who’s woken up from a year-long nap) involved one of the main characters getting stabbed to death and bleeding out in the snow. Obviously, he’s not staying dead (unless he is, of course). The question is, when? This provides us with the perfect…
Yeesh, this is a scary, weird year to be living on planet Earth. And we haven’t gotten those danged off-world colonies set up yet, for some reason. There’s no escape! Except, as Emily Dickinson would advise, to say “frig it,” and read a book. So here are 16 friggin’ great books to help you forget about 2016.
