TV Discussion: Week of 10/23/2016 to 10/29/2016

Hello everyone!  This is our weekly place to discuss all non-recapped TV.  See you in the comments!

The Walking Dead: Season 7 Episode 1 - The Day Will Come When You Won't...

Hello everyone and welcome back to The Walking Dead season 7!  It's been a long off-season of guessing.  We knew we were in for a stressful hour of television, but we still anxiously anticipated it for months.  And WOW what a crazy episode.  The show runners defended their decision to end last season where they did suggesting that this season would kick off a new ERA of The Walking Dead.  Now that we've seen it I think I can understand where they were coming from.  We worried if we'd be able to mentally get back in the intensity of the moment and be invested in who Negan took out.  I think they successfully had me nauseous the entire hour.  So, kudos to them!  And big kudos to Jeffrey Dean Morgan.  The man is a likable actor in pretty much every role he plays.  You definitely want to hate him as Negan, but there's something about him that is just irrefutably charming.  He's literally killing it as Negan.  It's going to be an interesting ride this season and beyond!

I don't really know if there's much to recap after that grueling hour but I'll certainly jot down a few notes before we head into the comments.  Let's dive in!

TV Discussion: Fall 2016 September-October

Hello fellow TV Addicts!  The Fall shows have finally come back to us and we need a new thread to track and discuss them all.  That's what we'll be doing here until we get back into regular recapping mode.  Walking Dead will resume later next month, so then we'll get back into weekly recaps and discussion threads. 

See you in the comments!

TV Discussion: Summer of 2016

Hello everyone.  This is our regular place to discuss non-recapped shows.  For the summer I usually just put one post up.  If the comments get high, I will start another one.  See you in the comments!

Game of Thrones: Season 6 Episode 10 - The Winds of Winter

Hello friends and welcome to our discussion of the season 6 finale of Game of Thrones!  Wow.  What a season and what a final 2 episodes directed by Miguel Sapochnik (director of last season's Hardhome).  I don't now where this guy came from, but they should definitely get him back.   We can nitpick certain scenes and directions of the show, but with a 10.0 rating on IMDB for both episodes he must be doing something right.  And I guess we can credit Benioff and Weiss too a little bit!  Long held book theories were confirmed (at least for the show and most likely for the book), somewhat shocking events took place, there were emotional moments throughout and it was nail biting all the way to the end.  This season may have its detractors, but for not having as much of a blueprint to follow I think it was pretty fantastic.  I do question how different the book will go for certain stories (after this episode especially I imagine significantly different), but with the show trying to wrap up the story they have to make certain key decisions.  Let's discuss!

TV Discussion: Week of 6/19/2016 - 6/25/2016

Hello everyone. This is our weekly place to discuss all non recapped shows. See you in the comments!

Game of Thrones: Season 6 Episode 9 - Battle of the Bastards

Hello everyone and welcome to our Game of Thrones coverage for season 6.  Put another episode 9 in the history books folks.  This one was pretty darned amazing.  It's easy to tell that HBO pulled out their wallet for this one allowing the most impressive battle imagery ever seen on TV to take place.  The episode was fantastic.  I do have a few nitpicks to address that the fandom has been discussing this season, but it doesn't take away from the visually impressive spectacle that was accomplished.  Let's dive in!
