Game of Thrones Review: Beyond the Wall

A lot has been said about the final two seasons of Game of Thrones. Comprising a total of just 13 episodes instead of what would normally have been 20, gave birth to a wave of disappointment. Out of that disappointment came the (false) hope that the remaining episodes would be much longer. Maybe even feature length. While that was a wonderful thought, 13 “movies” to … Continue reading Game of Thrones Review: Beyond the Wall

Game of Thrones Review: Eastwatch

From the very beginning the showrunners have made the world of Game of Thrones feel small. Much smaller than in the books. George R.R.

Game of Thrones Review: The Winds of Winter

And it’s over again. The darkness has come. in what will most likely the final 10 episode season (the showrunners have already confirmed that there will be about 13 episodes left in total) The Winds of Winter was a worthy season finale.
