TV Show: Game of Thrones

Sadly, Angela Lansbury will not get naked and bathe in the blood of her enemies on Game of Thrones

Chances are, if you grew up during The Wonder Years (whether the actual time the series was set in or watching it), then you also remember Murder She Wrote and Sunday nights when the whole family could gather around ye olde television set without embarrassment because this was before Sundays were for mafia kingpins or meth labs or bipolar CIA agents who made bad choices…

Game of Thrones: Karma, Glorious Karma

This week, Game of Thrones featured many of the good citizens of Westeros attempting to obtain pardons for their sins (and the sins of others) with highly variable rates of success, ranging from Jorah’s violent but hopeless attempt to win back Dany to Gilly’s much appreciated thank you roll in the hay with Sam.
