Last week, I spent a few nights finishing up the last Voltron series on Netflix. I have to say that for the most part it was pretty satisfying, if not a tad bit on the depressing side with a few bizarre unexpected moments thrown in
Right now, I think I hit a burnt out point with Path of Exile. But it might be a good segue for me to do something else like focus on blogging on the side. With that in mind, I wanted to write about random topics that occasionally pop into my mind….like Jem and the Holograms. It might be a strange topic but recently I had been watching some 80’s music videos and saw the new She-Ra Netflix cartoon pop up, making me think about the other powerhouse female cartoon in the 80’s.
As we slowly move towards 2019, possibly the most anticipated event will be Season 8 of Game of Thrones. There have been “leaks” and rumors for months regarding the new season. Thus far though, there has not been any solid leaks in terms of the actual overall plot. All we have are pieces from gorilla shots and the general information one can guess from the various source material. But given the actual evidence, what are real possibilities in how the season plays out and ends?
Recent rumors on the reddit freefolk sub talk about the potential for Tyrion facing a trial and then dying. While some have mentioned the people at the trial, the real question is what happened and will we see the end of House Lannister?
Season 7 Game of Thrones is over and we may have to wait at least a year before heading about the final season. Last night’s episode left a lot of questions but did present one very obvious direction: people are going to be fucked by winter. However, as a whole, how does Season 7 stand up?
Since my past reviews would take a few hours to write up as a result of carefully going through each critical moment in an episode, I decided to use a looser format for this review. I still have yet to write something for Episode 7 and most likely with my schedule won’t be able to get to it anytime soon (or might just postpone it indefinitely). Yet since this episode is the last in the season, I wanted to give my thoughts on the overall picture while first going through the major plot points.
The Defenders came out on Friday at midnight with me watching around 5am since I was simply too tired to stay up a few extra hours. I managed to finish the series this morning after catching a few more episodes last night and have been mulling over the show for a good day now. I’m not going to do an episode-by-episode review but tackle the series as a whole, especially in the realm these four characters.
We start this week’s episode picking up after the stunning defeat of the Lannister’s. Bronn recovers Jamie and drags him to land while telling him that the only person who is allowed to kill Jamie is Bronn (at least until Bronn gets his comeuppance). Jamie full well realizes the power of Daenerys’ army and the even deadlier three dragon weapons that wiped out his host. Yet he has the unenviable task of revealing this information to Cersei.
The Spoils of War starts with Jamie and Bronn at Highgarden gathering supplies and the treasures in preparation for a drawn out war with Daenerys’ army. Although the Lannisters were victorious, Jamie is clearly perturbed about how things went down as indicated by Bronn’s acumen. In the meantime, Bronn starts talking about what Jamie now owes him, which is a full castle. Bronn points out that Highgarden seems available but the upkeep and Daenerys’ invasion would make him think otherwise, according to Jamie.
The episode starts off with one of the most anticipated reunions in the series: Jon Snow greeting Tyrion Lannister at the beach of Dragonstone. Jon is accompanied by a few Stark men and his most trusted advisor Ser Davos Seaworth while Tyrion has by his side a few Dothraki soldiers and Missandei. They exchange a warm handshake and reminisce about when they last met at the Wall.
