STORM OF SPOILERS – What did you think the sugar was for?

1 Flares 1 Flares ×



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


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
