Winter Has Finally Come on Game of Thrones, and Now the Real War Begins

It’s taken six seasons, but Ned Stark has finally been proven right: Winter has come, and with it, the beginning of the end of Game of Thrones. As such, the show needed to start paring down its various storylines and plot threads, which it did last night with brutal efficiency. For those few players that remain, the…

Last Night’s Game of Thrones Was Horrifying, Infuriating, and Immensely Satisfying

Hey, ha ha, remember how the last few episodes of Game of Thrones have seemed to be a bit… low-key? Uh, well, now we know the reason why: It was spending all its time (and manpower, and probably a sizable portion of season six’s budget) on creating what is possibly the most incredible battle that has ever been seen on…

Jon Snow Is Different Now, and So Is Game of Thrones

On The Walking Dead, It's Rick's Turn to 'Screw With the Wrong People'

Remember in the season four finale, when Rick and the group were imprisoned in Terminus, and Rick rallied his troops by promising they were the force to be reckoned with? ”They’re screwing with the wrong people,” Rick announced emphatically, the lack of profanity undercutting his point a bit. After “Not Tomorrow Yet,”…

This Is What a 'Happy' Episode of The Walking Dead Looks Like

Don’t let the above picture fool you! Much time has passed since Alexandria was saved, and Rick and the Alexandrians actually have a moment of peace. I daresay they’re actually kind of happy! The town’s been rebuilt! A much-anticipated hook-up finally occurred! And the episode also introduced a delightfully absurd…

Here’s What Was Wrong With The Walking Dead’s Mid-Season Premiere: Everything

Last week, I was able to watch an early screening of “No Way Out”, Sunday night’s mid-season premiere. Upon my first viewing, I was struck by a single scene that disturbed me mightily. Upon Sunday night’s viewing, I had the opportunity to be appalled by every other aspect of the episode, which was one of The Walking…
