Game of Thrones finale

Our watch may be over when it comes to HBO’s Game of Thrones, but I have a feeling it’ll be a long time before we’re done talking about this show. In today’s quick round-up: a new poll might reframe the conversation around last Sunday’s series finale, actress Gwendoline Christie is “pathetically thrilled” that she correctly predicted the ending of the show two years ago, and author George R.R. Martin has set a deadline for himself to finish the next book in his A Song of Ice and Fire saga, The Winds of Winter. Read More »

Cloak and Dagger Blue Note Review

Okay, so after all of my complaining over last week’s episode, I am happy to say that this week’s Cloak & Dagger episode, “Blue Note” was actually very good. I still have some issues, which maybe just more of a personal thing, and my personal qualms will be the basis for this week’s review. With that said, let’s dive into what worked and what still made me uneasy this week.

doctor who season 12 images

With the Doctor’s regeneration from Peter Capaldi into Jodie Whittaker in the 11th season of the Doctor Who revival, the series got its own facelift, with all-new planets and all-new monsters introduced to the show. But despite Whittaker’s enthusiastic turn as the 13th Doctor and a few standout episodesDoctor Who just didn’t feel like Doctor Who anymore. This could be blamed on the lack of old villains, with the exception of the return of the Daleks in the New Year’s Day special. However, it seems like showrunner Chris Chibnall is loosening his “no old monsters” policy.

A sneak peek at the next season through two new Doctor Who season 12 images show Whittaker face-to-face with a Judoon platoon — though they’re likely not on the moon.

Game of Thrones Arya spinoff

With the ending of Game of Thrones only a few days behind us, discussion is already turning to what HBO plans to do next in that rich fantasy world. One thing fans can definitively cross off their wish list, though, is a spinoff following the adventures of Arya Stark.

In a new interview, HBO programming president Casey Bloys specifically dismissed that idea. Read what he had to say about the show’s divisive ending, the Game of Thrones prequel show that’s already in development, and more below. Read More »

george rr martin game of thrones ending

The fires are out and the ashes have fallen, and Game of Thrones is over. But the story continues, in the form of HBO prequels, and of course, the book series that started it all: George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire. The author of the novels upon which Game of Thrones is based offered his emotional reaction to the ending of the show in a new blog post, which closed out an important chapter in Martin’s life — but may be teasing a new chapter from the books. And of course, Martin answers that big question: is his ending for A Song of Ice and Fire going to be different from the divisive Game of Thrones ending?

Game of Thrones Finale

The final season of Game of Thrones has been divisive at best. The rushed pacing and certain character choices left many fans feeling bitter after the penultimate episode, “The Bells”. I was one of those fans, and I detailed my grievances with the series as I prepared for the final episode. I prepared myself to be angry, to be bitter, but above all, to be disappointed. Imagine my complete shock when the episode moved me to tears.

The final episode of Game of Thrones, “The Iron Throne”, delivered on many of the series’ most important character arcs. The series has always been at its best when it focuses on the characters and their personal journeys, and “The Iron Throne” gave us some satisfying conclusions for the characters who deserved it most. It wasn’t a perfect episode, as uneven as much of this season, but the big emotional beats worked – offering some catharsis after the upheaval from the previous episode. This may be the only real ending fans ever get, with the finale two books constantly being pushed back by series author George R.R. Martin.

Here’s a look at what worked and what didn’t, and why some fans feel worse about the ending than others – though no one needs to be making petitions.

Disney+ Muppets Shorts

Not too long ago, we learned that Frozen voice actor Josh Gad might be working with Once Upon a Time creators Edward Kitsis & Adam Horowitz on a new show that would bring The Muppets to Disney+. However, it sounds like that’s not all Jim Henson’s beloved puppet creations will be up to on the Disney streaming service.

A new rumor says The Muppets will also be starring in their own variety show-style shorts modeled after a trio of unscripted show formats. That sounds an awful lot like a throwback to the kind of sketches that The Muppets used to be part of on The Muppet Show back in the 1970s, as well as Muppets Tonight from the late 1990s. Read More »
