GOT Review – Episode 28: The Second Sons

Entertainmnet Rants
Summary: Arya tries for a murder, Dany chats with three potential suitors, one suitor is a head above the rest, Tyrion and Sansa get married, Joffrey nearly loses his dick, Gendry’s penis is drained, Theon is pissed at all the penis references in the intro, Davos is out on bail.   Quote: Davos Seaworth: I think mothers and fathers made up the gods because they wanted their children to sleep through the night. A fairly dark and grim view from my main man Davos. We’ve seen his views on Melisandra, and he’s seen a shadow demon being birthed from a vagina, lost a son, and went to prison for believing in his king. If anyone has the right not to believe in a god, it’s him.   Now, ultimately we…

GOT Review: Episode 27 – The Bear and the Maiden Fair

Entertainmnet Rants
Summary: Jon figures everyone is going to die, Ygritte doesn’t care, Orell is a meddling twot, Robb is stuck in the rain, Jaime helps Brienne fight a bear, love isn’t long lasting, Sansa is depressed, Tywin is the best heel on the show, Dany threatens another world leader, Osha is a giant hypocrite. Quote: Barristan Selmy: The Yunkish are a proud people; they will not bend.  Dany: And what happens to things that don't bend?   Throughout the series, Dany becomes a conqueror, though you can argue if some of the cities really needed to be. I’m looking at you, most of the plot following this season. Dany’s mentality to free all slaves is noble, idealistic, and often at times a storyline crutch to prevent her from getting to Westeros.…

GOT Review: Episode 26 – The Climb

Entertainmnet Rants, Fantasy
Summary - Jon and Ygritte have a climb, Melisandra wants a young man’s body, Tywin and Olenna have a chat, Varys and Littlefinger has a chat, Bran watched a seizure happen and does nothing, Tyrion and Sansa are screwed, Ros is a coat rack, Theon is somehow in worse shape. Quote: Littlefinger - Chaos isn't a pit. Chaos is a ladder. Many who try to climb it fail and never get to try again. The fall breaks them. And some, are given a chance to climb. They refuse, they cling to the realm or the gods or love. Illusions. Only the ladder is real. The climb is all there is. So yeah, Littlefinger doesn’t really care about anything but power. His actions in the series make a lot of sense when…

Summary – The Hound fights for his life, Beric takes a bloody nap, Arya loses more people she cares about, Jon makes the sex, Jaime opens up, Qyburn lights a stump on fire, Sansa has hope, Tyrion is talked down to a lot, Grey Worm appears, Barristan and Jorah measure their uhh swords, Stannis is a bad father, Stannis wife sucks, Shireen and Davos are treasures. Quote Jaime: Stark? You think the honorable Ned Stark wanted to hear my side? He judged me guilty the moment he set eyes on me. By what right does the wolf judge the lion? By what right? Brienne: Guards! The Kingslayer! Jaime: Jaime... my name is Jaime. Yes, I did skip all the confession and the true about slaying the mad king. All of that was terrific.…

Strike the chains off every slave you see!” In what becomes a defining moment for the character, Dany transforms from interesting leader who many cross their fingers will pop up naked, to one who will try and free all slaves. I…

A Modest Smash Proposal

Entertainmnet Rants
Super Smash Brothers Ultimate is here. And yet, for some reason, I’m posting a blog instead of playing. Talk about dropping the ball. Despite popular belief, delays to posts are not tied to Smash. I haven’t played nearly as much as you’d think due to a hectic work schedule. It would be a lie to say I haven’t dabbled in a few matches though. However, I’ve seen a disturbing trend in Smash - the rise of non Nintendo characters. It was a logical progression, I mean who was left as playable? They put in a frigging potted plant. Captain Toad aside, anyone whose anyone for Nintendo is in. And hey, the additions have been pretty great. I can’t complain about them. What I can complain about is nonsense, ridiculous characters…

GOT Review: Episode 23 – Walk of Punishment

Entertainmnet Rants
  Summary: Blackfish is a baller, Edmure is not a shot caller, Jon is sent to help scout the Night’s Watch, Sam has a pity party, Podrick comes up big, Tyrion gets another crappy job, Dany makes a bad trade like a Mets GM, Jaime loses about 5 pounds. Quote: Ser Jorah Mormont: “Rhaegar fouhgt valianty, Rhaegar fought nobly, and Rhaegar died”.   This is one of the central themes of Game of Thrones - playing the game fair only leads to ruins. Other than a select few characters, who were rather bias (I’m looking at you Bobby B), few people had anything negative to say about Rhaegar Targaryen. He was a leader, a true warrior and an artist. He was a man loved by most and destined for greatness.…

GOT Review: Episode 22 – Dark Wings, Dark Words

Entertainmnet Rants
Summary - Jon and Mance have a lovely 5 second chat, Jaime and Brienne have their first fight, Robb gets no respect, Catelyn continues to be a bad mother, Bran gets screen time, Arya meets the Brotherhood without Banners.   Quotes:   Mance Rayder: Do you know what it takes to unite ninety clans, half of whom want to massacre the other half for one insult or another? They speak seven different languages in my army. The Thenns hate the Hornfoots. The Hornfoots hate the ice-river clans. Everyone hates the cave people. So, you know how I got moon-worshippers and cannibals and giants to march together in the same army?  Jon Snow: No.  Mance Rayder: I told them we were all going to die if we don't get south. Because…

GOT Review Delay

Everyday Life Rants
You may have noticed a distinct lack of updates this week. I figured you, the people deserved an update instead of me not writing anything and hoping you didn’t notice. Trust me, I much preferred not writing anything and hoping you didn’t notice. Due to a very unfortunate work schedule, I haven’t been able to watch as many episodes as I hoped, not do full write ups. You would think my line of work would give me adequate time (stealing from the rich bloggers and giving to the poor ones. Mostly myself). However, several projects have been dumped on me which I didn’t anticipate. I mean the sheriff dumped ye olde audit project on me and said “bad luck”. Sometimes I don’t think he likes me that much. So while…

Summary: The Night’s Watch has a tough battle against ice. Jon meets the king beyond the wall. Dany meets a charming man, and then an old knight. Tyrion fears for his life. Tywin wins father of the year. Davos makes a difficult journey only to be jailed. Margarey plays chess while Joffrey doesn’t understand checkers.  Quotes: Tywin Lannister: We'll find you accommodations more suited to your name and as a reward for your accomplishments during the Battle of Blackwater Bay. And when the time is right, you will be given a position fit for your talents, so that you can serve your family and protect our legacy. And if you serve faithfully, you will be rewarded with a suitable wife - and I would let myself be consumed by maggots…
