Stranger Things Season 4- …and What Does It Mean

I like to liken my fandoms to the Chappelle character, Tyrone Biggums. Now I know there is a whole generation who might not know what the Chappelle Show is, and it hurts my heart something fiercely, but I like to believe that Chappelle’s resurfacing in standup has pointed a lot of new fans toward this classic sketch comedy show. I refuse to believe that there … Continue reading Stranger Things Season 4- …and What Does It Mean

On the Road With El Camino- A Person of Interest

From a pop culture emotional standpoint, I’m pretty drained. It’s been a hell of a year and I’m not entirely sure what else I have to give. I’m spent. I’ve shed my tears… a lot of them. I focused so much of my emotions during the first half of the year on Avengers Endgame that I wonder what else I possibly have to give. There have … Continue reading On the Road With El Camino- A Person of Interest

I Am Geek 2019 Emmy Nomination Reactions

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

Stranger Things- What If Doctor Brenner Is Alive?

If George R.R. Martin has impressed anything on me with the way he freely abuses his reader’s emotions, it’s that if it doesn’t happen on the page (or on screen) then it didn’t happen. Just because you’re told a character has died or are left for dead or any type of death is alluded to, it means zero until you see that character dead for … Continue reading Stranger Things- What If Doctor Brenner Is Alive?

An Ambitious Reading Journey… and Its Crushing Weight

I do a lot of reading. If you’ve been a fan of the site for a while this shouldn’t come as much as a surprise for you. I feel like I’m frequently here talking about what books I’m reading, have read, or thinking about reading and relaying them to my Good Reads account which I might have a slight obsession with. Seriously, life before Good … Continue reading An Ambitious Reading Journey… and Its Crushing Weight

Game of Thrones “The Iron Throne” Review- Now Our Watch Has Ended

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

Game of Thrones “The Last War” Review- Let It Be Fear

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

Looking For Meaning In Jon Snow’s Goodbye To Ghost

The last episode of Game of Thrones certainly left a great deal to digest. With only two episodes left the board seems to be stacked for an intense finale. Daenerys is on the brink of self-destruction. Varys is in full protect the realm mode which could mean a possible murder attempt. Tyrion is trying to convince himself that Daenerys is the best option to take … Continue reading Looking For Meaning In Jon Snow’s Goodbye To Ghost

Game of Thrones “The Last of the Starks” Review- Dracarys

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

The True Impact of the Night King

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
