SOS_BANNERSSN2

A GAME OF THRONES PODCAST FOR PEOPLE WHO WANT TO TALK ABOUT SPOILERS

With Joanna Robinson from Vanity Fair, Dave Gonzales from Geek.com and Neil Miller from Film School Rejects!

WARNING

If you’re looking for spoiler-free dissection of the highest caliber, you’re looking for A CAST OF KINGS (click there)

This podcast includes some deep sighs and acknowledgement of what happened on the TV last Sunday.

This week, Neil, Joanna and Da7e are pretty much in agreement that they’ve witnessed some serious errors in Game of Thrones storytelling. From the geography of Dorne being as unclear as Littlefinger’s overall plan to the sad limitations of real life production leading to another disappointing outing for the Sand Snakes. Also, the show doesn’t stick the landing and all our worst Sansa fears became true in a very clumsy way.

That doesn’t mean this week is without it’s bright spots of crackpotitude and literature-based extrapolation!

Neil makes several attempts to return to the Crazytown Citadel we built last week, Da7e becomes obsessed with a giant mockingbird and pairs off Lady Olenna with the High Sparrow (sexually), and Joanna introduces us all to a Twitter account called @catelynshead

This week’s closing track:

And our favorite Mad Men quotes

Audio Note: This week Katey had to phone it in, but does NOT phone it in. If you get our drift.

This week, Katey, Patches, Da7e and David say goodbye to AMC’s Mad Men, a show we’ve spent almost a decade watching, writing about and thinking about. Which host cried during the Finale? What’s everyone’s favorite quote and why is Patches so into defending Betty as a character. If you haven’t caught up with Mad Men through the series finale “Person to Person,” you’re a bit S.O.L. on this one. But we’d like to buy you a Coke and keep you company regardless.

Follow the show (@FITWR), Katey (@kateyrich)  Patches (@misterpatches), Da7e (@da7e) and David (@davidehrlich or @CriterionCorner).

STORM OF SPOILERS – Erecting a Citadel In Crazytown

SOS_BANNERSSN2

A GAME OF THRONES PODCAST FOR PEOPLE WHO WANT TO TALK ABOUT SPOILERS

With Joanna Robinson from Vanity Fair, Dave Gonzales from Geek.com and Neil Miller from Film School Rejects!

WARNING

If you’re looking for spoiler-free dissection of the highest caliber, you’re looking for A CAST OF KINGS (click there)

This podcast includes some harsh language and blunt spoiling. But… you’ve already seen Reek horribly tortured and are dead inside anyway.

This week, we don’t go to King’s Landing or Dorne, instead we spend time East and North. What characters get added to the Boneyard this week after a Stony encounter in Valyria swaps in Jorah for a Griff? At the wall, Joanna and Neil try to make Da7e feel better about what Ollie is obviously being used for and we quickly touch on if we’re gonna make it to Oldtown later on down the line. Stannis and his group are leaving the wall and everything that happens at Winterfell is foreign to us, so that begins the big kick-off of this week’s crackpot theories. Where will Stannis meet the Boltons? Who dies where? When should we resume Stoneheart watch?
