Game of Thrones: Season 5

  All it takes is for me to hear the stirring opening theme by Ramin Djwadi, and I get very excited about returning to Westeros. Now, thanks to HBO, I can journey back there to that war-torn land, and binge-watch all of Season 5’s episodes, and get ready for the approach of Winter, and Season…

Game of Thrones – Season 3 On Blu-Ray

HBO is quickly becoming the gold standard by which I measure a collection’s extras, and transfers by, and the latest season of George R.R. Martin’s epic and involving fantasy tale is another feather in their cap. Since it burst on the scene in 2011, the series has enraptured fans and non-fans alike with its character…

Game of Thrones S02 E10 – Valar Morghulis

There it is, the season finale, and we’re done for another year, it’s gonna be a long wait for a return to Westeros, but maybe I’ll read Dance of Dragons between now and then to fill up some of the time. This week, we saw the fallout of the Battle of Breakwater, as well as…

Game of Thrones S02 E07 & E08

As we know, things went sideways for me last week, so I didn’t have a chance to watch Game of Thrones until this evening, and watched both eps back to back again. To be honest, I almost prefer it this way, getting two hours of solid entertainment. Theon Greyjoy, having installed himself into Winterfell, wakes…

Game of Thrones S02 E05 & E06

I missed out on doing a post last week for Game of Thrones Episode 5 because Sue and I were hip deep in the awesomeness that is Hot Docs. So this evening, I sat down and worked my way through two episodes back to back to catch up on all the scheming, betrayal and murder……

Game of Thrones S02E03 – What Is Dead May Never Die

The politics and machinations are well under way at this point of the season, as parties maneuver to gain control of the Iron Throne and the lands of Westeros. North of the Wall, we rejoin Jon Snow as Craster delivers him to Lord Commander Mormont after catching Snow spying on the fate of Craster’s male…

Game of Thrones S02E02 – The Night Lands

The Song of Fire & Ice continued this week, with the incomparable fantasy series Game of Thrones. And you know you’re addicted, and a geek, when you notice and pick out new locations that you’ve read about and imagined appear in what may well be my favorite opening credits for a television series ever. This…

Game of Thrones S02E01 – The North Remembers

I have been looking forward to returning to Westeros since the end of the first season of Game of Thrones, not to mention when I finished the books (still haven’t read Dance of Dragons yet – paperback please). The novels, and now the series it has spawned is epic in nature, there are tons of…

Game of Thrones Exhibit at the Lightbox

Yup, sometimes being here in Toronto is pretty¬†cool.¬†It also helps to have some awesome friends who offered me a free ticket to take in the Game of Thrones Exhibit being put on at the Lightbox, the home of the Toronto International Film Festival. I have to say that I like the Lightbox, and I keep…
