Kissed By Fire…

Jon and Ygritte Kiss

I am extremely pleased with Season 3 to date.  The amount of information, character development and exposition they have to fold into this season is mind-blowing for those of us who have read the books.  There’s so much, in fact, that Season 3 , based on the third book in the series, A Storm of […]

GoT 3.2 – We Don’t Get To Choose Who We Love!

Brienne-of-Tarth-Jaime-Lannister-jaime-and-brienne-34183903-1920-1080 (1)

I was overjoyed seeing my other faves last night:   Arya, Bran, Jamie, Brienne, even The Hound who showed up just in time to recognize Arya hanging with the Brotherhood Without Banners.  Not to give away much not shown on the series yet, but if it’s true to the book, our little she-wolf and that […]

The Fastest Hour In History – GoT 3.1

game-of-thrones-season-3-teaser

The clock was ticking away as I sat there, unblinking, waiting for it to strike 9.  HBO used that time wisely to plug ALL their series because nobody was going to move an inch.  Tick, tick, tick….wait a minute!!  It was 9:01 – WHAT!!  Then it starts and there is nothing but white noise (as […]

Lord Varys: Master of Whisperers, Friend or Foe?

Master of Whisperers

At the end of Season 2 we have Lord Varys visiting our wounded Little Lion after the battle of Blackwater.  Varys has no words of comfort for Tyrion, but does bring Shae to him in an act of kindness. I got to thinking about Varys and came to the conclusion that he is one of […]

Let The Countdown Begin!

The King Beyond The Wall

Well guys, we made it to March.  Just 30 days to go.  The anticipation is killing just about everyone I talk to.  We want to see what’s happened with our beloved characters (the ones that are still alive, that is); we want to see the new characters. I can’t wait to get a gander at […]

You Know Nothing, Jon Snow!

Jon Snow on the Iron Throne

I pre-ordered GoT Season 2, so I got it yesterday.  Even though I’ve been watching both seasons on HBO On Demand, I am excited to see all the added features.  I am especially interested in the fate of our Jon Snow. In looking for pictures of Jon online, I came across this one with him […]

Cersei Lannister – Queen of Mean – Medieval Style!

Queen of (Medieval) Mean

I’ve been looking at Cersei Lannister lately with an eye to being non-judgmental.  After watching a heartfelt conversation between she and Robert in Season 1  (the only heartfelt one between them in the series), I gave it more thought and came to the following conclusions as to the whys and hows of her becoming such […]

3-31-13 Is Coming…Who Will You Miss Most?

The Iron Throne

Now that Season 3 is approaching, I got to thinking of how many characters GRRM has killed off in the first two seasons and am in a period of so-called mourning, if you will.  Because I’ve been watching and re-watching both Seasons 1 and 2 incessantly, I’ve bonded with some characters and I see now […]

GOT3 Is Coming…Come On Already!

Daenerys GOT Season 3

Okay, I don’t know about you guys, but I am really getting very impatient waiting for GOT Season 3!  I’ve read practically every thing I could get my hands on, watched Seasons 1 and 2 until I can recite all the lines by heart, and started A Storm of Swords.  So I do have some […]

Kill The Braavosi…Bring The Girl!

Arya Stark 2

Arya Stark!!  Lady Arya Stark, that is!  She’s braver than Michael Corleone!  As a matter of fact, the entire series is reminiscent of The Godfather in many ways; power struggles, back-stabbing, theft – just to name a few.  And there are so many character similarities between those in GRRM-land and the world of Don Corleone. […]
