“This has been the best season finale in the history of Game of Thrones, in our humble opinion. Usually a weak episode after the strong and shocking 9th, this time the trend was bucked, with this particular instalment managing to make us hungry for the last two seasons at the same time as wrapping up older storylines, whilst also stylishly donning a winter coat of murder, intrigue and fun.” Our look back at the phenomenal Season 6 finale.… Read More ROUND-UP: Game of Thrones – ‘The Winds of Winter’ (Season 6, Episode 10)
“…with that white raven winging it’s way over a snowy landscape, the birds they rear in the Citadel to send word across the Kingdom that the seasons are changing, it’s looks almost certain that Winter is finally here after 6 bloodthirsty seasons!” Our thoughts and predictions about the Season 6 finale.… Read More Game of Thrones: What might we see in the Season 6 Finale?
“As much as Jon does seem to have plot armour since his resurrection, it did feel like a real possibility he was going to be sucked under the pile of bodies and mud that had heaped up on the battlefield. Because of that, his second rebirth, that moment when he gasped a lungful of air after forcing himself through the clutch of his allies as they attempted to avoid being skewered by the surrounding Bolton, Umber and Karstark forces, felt much more powerful than his first.” Our thoughts on this spectacular, penultimate episode of the season.… Read More ROUND-UP: Game of Thrones – ‘Battle of the Bastards’ (Season 6, Episode 9)
“Cersei is definitely the one holding Jaime back from becoming the honourable man it seems he wants to be when he’s in Brienne’s presence. It really appears to be an internal struggle for him, and while his sister still has a hold over him, he will threaten to kill everybody who gets in their way, including Edmure’s son via catapult if he has to,… even if he’s not the type to relish violence, in stark contrast to his twin.” Our response to a rather bloody, but lacklustre episode. … Read More ROUND-UP: Game of Thrones – ‘No One’ (Season 6, Episode 8)
“As to how things will move forward after this apparent changing of the guard, for all of John, Arthur’s and now Michael’s violent tendencies, it’s the women in the family who should worry Tommy the most now that he’s alone and vulnerable. Polly particularly. When she told her nephew that she’d bring his empire down if her son killed Hughes, I suspect she meant it.” Danielle takes a look at the explosive Series 3 finale. … Read More RECAP & REVIEW: Peaky Blinders – Series 3, Episode 6
“As much as we all wanted the Glovers to join the Starks against the Boltons, it’s understandable why they didn’t. Their allegiance to [Robb] cost them family members, and for a time due to the Greyjoy mainland invasion, their castle too. Attacking the very people who’ve just helped you to get back your ancestral home wouldn’t be particularly smart.” We take a look at this week’s returning familiar face filled episode.… Read More ROUND-UP: Game of Thrones – ‘The Broken Man’ (Season 6, Episode 7)
“…about mid-way through the orgy I realised I miss the simpler times back at The Garrison from earlier series. It’s not that I was shocked or offended by all that bare flesh. It’s not even the fact that it was totally over the top either. From the very beginning Peaky Blinders has always had more in common with a graphic novel or a comic book than it has with the gritty realism of so many other British TV shows. It’s rather that I found myself getting a little bored with the whole hammering home over and over of the ‘Otherness’ of those “fookin’mad” Russians.” Danielle underlines the highs and lows in this penultimate episode of the Series. … Read More RECAP & REVIEW: Peaky Blinders – Series 3, Episode 5
