I’m slipping in my old age Geeklings. I did an entire Week In Geek the other day and failed to mention the fact that Emmy nominations were coming out this week. Mostly because… I had forgotten. I always know that Emmy nominations happen during the summer but I also always forget when in the summer. This happens every year and this year was no different. I not only failed … Continue reading I Am Geek 2019 Emmy Nomination Reactions
However just or unjust it may be, television shows are often times judged for their final episodes. From a storytelling standpoint you’ve already drawn everyone in, you’ve won their trust, you’ve gained their fandom/love now all you’re left to do is stick the landing. No pressure, right? We live in a world of nearly impossible expectations that social media often makes impossible to achieve. Yet, … Continue reading Game of Thrones “The Iron Throne” Review- Now Our Watch Has Ended
They say that every time a Targaryen is born the gods flip a coin and the realm holds its breath. After eight seasons Daenerys Targaryen, the Mother of Dragons, the Unburnt, the Breaker of Chains, and the Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea finally saw her coin land… and the gods chose madness. What followed was everything that Jamie Lannister prevented when he killed the … Continue reading Game of Thrones “The Last War” Review- Let It Be Fear
Game of Thrones is no stranger to heartbreak. This is a show that has built its reputation by defying expectations. Your emotional investments mean very little when it comes to the overall narrative, and despite how much you love a character or how badly you want to see them get what they deserve there’s a very strong chance that you won’t. Life within Westeros is … Continue reading Game of Thrones “The Last of the Starks” Review- Dracarys
Heading into the Battle of Winterfell, I think most of us expected a blood bath of the most epic proportions. Game of Thrones has made a point about not caring about our feelings over the years causing me to question every wedding I attend now. Including my own. With something like Game of Thrones, I think that we’ve come to expect so much heartbreak in … Continue reading The True Impact of the Night King
Over the course of seven seasons, we’ve watched the Night King and his Army of the Dead lurk within the shadows of Game of Thrones. The ominous threat that distracted us from the politics and drama of Westeros. A force that could care less about crowns, family loyalties, Red Weddings, or people with no face. The Night King had one objective and one objective only… … Continue reading Game of Thrones “The Long Night” Review- Not Today
Geeklings, welcome to the first ever Game of Thrones Week here at I Am Geek. In the three years of I Am Geek, I don’t think I’ve ever dedicated an entire week to one specific subject matter and I can’t quite figure out why. These are the types of weeks where I know exactly what I’m writing about. One would think that I would do … Continue reading Week In Geek- Game of Thrones Week!!
Fiction is a really interesting/powerful thing, he said in a generic/bland writer’s voice. Could there be a more generic opening to a column? I’m not sure, but it doesn’t negate the fact that sometimes the most obvious observations are the ones we often overlook. With that being said, fiction is a really interesting/powerful thing. Often times we read, watch, or even playthings for the hero … Continue reading Does The Night King Need To Speak?
The final season of Game of Thrones is only a month away. Take a minute and think about that for a second. One. Month. Away. Thirty days from now we’ll be sitting down at nine o’clock and watching as these final six episodes close the chapter on Westeros… at least the television version. I for one am not entirely convinced that I’ll read the final … Continue reading Game of Theories- What If the Night King Isn’t the Big Bad
