Summer 2015 TV Discussion

Hello everyone!  As usual, this will be our place to talk ALL TV during the summer.  If the comments thread gets too long, I'll post a new one later on.  See you in the comments!

Game of Thrones: Season 5 Episode 10 - Mother's Mercy

Hello everyone and welcome to our final installment of Game of Thrones recapping for season 5!  And WOW, can you believe what just went down in that episode?  Thrilling from start to finish.  A mix of plots that have yet to happen in the books and what definitely happened.  We have now chronologically reached the point where the TV Show has caught up to where A Dance With Dragons  (book 5) ends.  There are some plot lines that haven't been covered yet that seem like they may still happen next year, but for the most part we are in uncharted territory!   One has to assume George R. R. Martin is almost finished with The Winds of Winter, but he has long since stopped updating fans on when he thinks he'll release a book due to not making those deadlines in the past.  Most betting fans would bet he'll release it RIGHT BEFORE season 6 airs to optimize sales.  We shall see.

But, this season certainly was a rollercoaster ride of emotions and it ended on a pretty shocking note (even if it was heavily foreshadowed throughout the season).   A couple of us book readers have been debating how the scene would go down and where exactly it would end all season long (feel free to go back and read those spoiler discussions in all of the comments.  We'll talk a little more in this recap about the implications and what book fans have theorized about.

A minor note on Spoiler Warnings.  I usually freely discuss anything that has been covered in the books and try to avoid spoiling anything yet to come.  Now, that we're caught up we're in a huge grey area of what may or may not be a spoiler!  I will still use caution on discussing things that might still happen in the show.  Let's do this!

TV Discussion: Week of 6/7/2015 - 6/13/2015

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

Game of Thrones: Season 5 Episode 9 - The Dance of Dragons

Hello everyone and welcome to another episode 9 of Game of Thrones!  I apologize once again for being unavailable the past couple of weeks to do a proper recap.  I had no idea when that happened that we'd be getting the amazing episode we got last week!  And we still had plenty of discussion about it!  With that said, I always suspected episode 9 would contain some form of the amazing conclusion we got this week.  And it was nothing short of spectacular!  The other moments in the episode were just as important and one in particular will probably ruffle a few feathers.  Let's dive in!

As per usual, I have read all of the books, which is becoming less and less important as we near the end of the written material.  In terms of spoilers, I try to avoid spoiling book plots that have not occurred to my best knowledge in the show.  Once they do occur, I speak to the differences.  In the comments book readers should note ***SPOILER*** or *** BOOK DISCUSSION**** if they are about to post something about book plots yet to happen.

Here we go!

Game of Thrones: Season 5 Episode 8 - Hardhome (Discussion)

Hello everyone and welcome back to our Game of Thrones season 5 coverage!  As noted, this is the 2nd week in a row where I have a conflict with doing a full scale recap.  I will be back in full force next week for the remaining 2 episodes of the season.  But, we can still discuss the episode below and I'll be sure to add my thoughts as soon as I can.  Thanks for your understanding and see you in the comments!
