ASOIAF -Emo Jon is kind of cute

Game of Thrones 4.09 - The Watchers on the Wall

My recap is up (only one more to go!!) This Watcher on the Couch wasn't too impressed by "The Watchers on the Wall."

Also, enjoy Jon Snow's complete range of emotions … (Spoiler: he runs the gamut from A to B, as Dorothy Parker once said of Katherine Hepburn :D)

Oh, oh, Oberyn!!! My recap of the episode is up.

ASOIAF - Sansa

Game of Thrones - 4.07 - "Mockingbird"

My recap of "Mockingbird" - best episode of the season so far (and actually a pretty good episode in general!) Remember, you cannot give up on the gravy!! (I think I might be Team Hot Pie now!)

ASOIAF - Tyrion

Game of Thrones, 4.06 - "The Laws of Gods and Men"

Here's my recap: In which Tyrion and Theon are both trapped in iron cages and there's a case of too many zzzzzzzzzs…

ASOIAF - Cersei

Game of Thrones - Episode 4.05 - "First of His Name"

My recap of "Game of Thrones", Episode 4.05 - in which we circle back to one of the first mysteries of the series, (that is, if you remember who Jon Arryn was) and Westeros is about to get its first farm-women's coop!

ASOIAF - Brienne - oathkeeper

Game of Thrones 4.04 - Recap

Oathkeeper - a scene I've been waiting for four years. Also, childcare in Westeros is really sucky, and how a cat saved a prince's virginity. My Game of Thrones recap!

ASOIAF - Brienne

Game of Thrones - 4.03 - Breaker of Chains RECAP

I actually liked most of the rest of the episode, though I feel a bit like Mrs. Lincoln talking about the play … Here's my recap: Fifty Shades of No!

ASOIAF - Brienne

for those of you who are unsullied … Game of Thrones Episode 4.03

I feel I have to say this because I don't want you non-book readers to be giving me the raised eyebrow about my love for Jaime Lannister! (I mean, any more than you already do, considering what he did to Bran, that is!)

Spoilers for GoT 4.03 - Breaker of Chains and for the equivalent scene in the booksCollapse )

Game of Thrones - Recaps, we have them!!

Don't let the birds and flowers fool you - WINTER IS COMING AGAIN! In case you forgot what happened on Season 3 of "Game of Thrones," here's a brief recap!

And after you're caught up on Season 3, here's my recap of Episode 4.01: Two Swords, No Waiting!" in which the Hound channeled Omar Little. You know, "The Wire" has a lot of wisdom to offer the participants in the "Game of Thrones." I always wished Cersei had told Ned Stark: "You come at the Queen, you best not miss!"

Justified - Tim

Justified - 5.03 and 5.04

I didn't love last week's episode of "Justified" - it was full of "good intentions" but ultimately not one of the better ones.

This week, though, I was "over the moon mountain": maybe because, as Polonius advises, my beloved Dewey Crowe remained true to himself above all. He had one job, and he did do it, but in typical Dewey fashion. Among the ranks of the coolly competent lawmen (Raylan! Tim! Rachel! Art!) and clever, erudite criminals (Boyd! OK, just Boyd, but Boyd is a pretty towering figure) who populate this show, Dewey sticks out like a sore, yet hilarious, thumb, and I love him for it.
