BWW Recap: 'The Broken Man' Makes Shocking Return on GAME OF THRONES
by Jessica Naftaly - Jun 6, 2016

This season of Game of Thrones is flying by. Last night's episode entitled ¬ďThe Broken Man,¬Ē brought along a lot of shocks, surprises, and questions as it led us into the final three episodes of the season. We saw old faces return, new faces realized, faces that were not actually faces, and many current faces battling with their great inner struggles. We checked in with a lot of plot lines, but focus of this episode revolved around the new character portrayed by Ian ¬ď[It's] just tits and Dragons¬Ē McShane, of whom the episode title was based upon.

BWW Recap: 'The Winds of Winter' Have Blown on GAME OF THRONES
by Jessica Naftaly - Jun 27, 2016

Last night was the finale of Season 6 of HBO's Game of Thrones and after a riveting epic episode of battles, we got something rather different this week. It had your standard Thrones finale elements; death, shocks, violence, and twists. However, most of it didn't really make much sense. We got plot development, but Thrones just seems like it's on a high speed train, eager to get to the final stop, without caring about the journey along the way. We had to say goodbye to a great many cast members this season, but this episode alone wiped out so many that it was hard to take a moment to even feel the impact of their character's death. The show has really embraced the 'efficiency is coming' methodology and it can surely be felt in this packed, fast-paced, and rather convoluted episode built on shocks but devoid of logic.  (more...)

BWW Recap: THRONES Brings Death and Destruction in 'The Battle of the Bastards'
by Jessica Naftaly - Jun 20, 2016

We're just one episode away from the final episode of Season 6 of Game of Thrones and the penultimate episode entitled ¬ďThe Battle of the Bastards¬Ē premiered last night. Despite what the promos had us believe, we got not one, but two battles this episode, and it was certainly an episode jam packed with death, gore, and violence. All three things we're quite used to on Thrones! Episode 9 of this show has become known amongst its viewers and creators as the big one. It's usually the episode where everything comes to fruition, the climax of the series that has everyone cheering and applauding the show immediately after for its genius and shock. Last year we had ¬ďHardhome,¬Ē which was a direct departure from the books and gave us death and destruction, only to have the Night King lift his arms and raised the dead. However, this episode, despite being totally epic in scale and stunning visually, lacked a certain complexity, integrity, and dimensionality that made episodes like ¬ďBlackwater¬Ē back in Season 2 so rich and exciting. ¬ďThe Battle of the Bastards¬Ē was entertaining and a feat of direction, cinematography, and scale, for sure, but its predictability, cluttered circumstance, and ever so confusing character choices and motivations made the episode suffer as a whole.¬† (more...)
