TV Discussion: Week of 4/24/2016 - 4/30/2016

Hello fellow TV Addicts! This is our weekly place for discussion of all non-recapped shows. See you in the comments!

Game of Thrones: Season 6 Episode 1 - The Red Woman

Hello friends.  It's been a long wait, but we're back!  Game of Thrones has returned and in fine form.  WOW.  I've been on the "I've read the books" side of the fence for so long now that watching this episode without any clue what was coming next was a new and intense experience!  For season kickoff episodes this one seemed to pack more punch than usual.  It certainly was a setup episode for the season, but it was a thrilling ride from storyline to storyline.

I usually take time to give my disclaimer that while I have book knowledge I will not spoil anything that hasn't occurred on the show yet.  It really doesn't apply this week as we are into uncharted territory.  However, it may still apply this season from time to time based on storylines they could still cover in one way or another.  But, for now let's dive in and discuss the highlights from each storyline they covered this week.

TV Discussion: April 2016

Hello fellow TV Addicts! This is our place for discussion of all non-recapped shows.  With The Walking Dead wrapped up I figure this post will hold us until Game of Thrones starts later this month.  See you in the comments!

The Walking Dead: Season 6 Episode 16 - Last Day on Earth

Hello everyone!  We've finally reached the end of season 6.  From the reaction I've seen so far, there are some justifiably angry fans for how things were left.  I can totally understand that mindset and I might even be halfway inclined to join that group.  But, it's hard to bash the show too much because it did deliver well on introducing a new pivotal character and tearing down the confidence of one character we've been following for 6 seasons.  For that, I say WOW!  We can talk through the pros and cons below of their finale approach.  Overall though, I'd say season 6 was a huge success.  Let's do this!
