STORM OF SPOILERS – Bad News, Benjen

2 Flares 2 Flares ×



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

This podcast includes some occasional cussing, but no more than usual. It covers SEASON 5 EPISODE 7 “The Gift.”

This week, all our hosts dream that they are old and have all the time in the world to discuss Game of Thrones. We can’t get through a single scene without having some questions about execution or some speculation about how this contributes to the end of the season. Casting for Season 6 of the show has begun and we might put a little too much stock on what IMDB says about the tenth episode of the season. Da7e gets a quick geography lesson, Neil convinces everyone he knows better about the Dorne plotline and we all wonder if we’ve seen the last of Benjen Stark.
