Jim, Cecily and A.Ron are here for a round table on Hulu’s new comedy, Ramy, and the latest two episode of Starz, American Gods. We all found Ramy to be really funny as well as insightful, and if you’ve had to struggle with your religious identity with a strict upbringing (cough, cough) we’re sure you’ll relate to the material. And then, there’s American Gods, which is all over the place, as Gods are wont to do.
Jim and A.Ron are here to delve into the deeper mysteries of Game of Thrones, discussing the lore, prophecies, and world building that make Thrones great. Some of this material could be construed as spoilery, as it involves informed speculation about events that could happen on the show based on material found in the A Song of Ice and Fire series. We do not discuss production spoilers or leaks on this podcast. Today we talk dragons in the north, Valonqar prophecies, the weirdification of Bran Stark, Night King plots and much more!
Jim and A.Ron are here to break down all the action from this week’s premiere episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones, “Winterfell”. And indeed the ancestral home of House Stark houses the direwolf’s share of the action and intrigue, as characters are reunited, dragons are flown, and divisions within the forces of the Living threaten to undermine the war against the Dead. It’s clear that sharing power and cooperating is going to be a challenge, not only for Jon and Dany, but for the many different peoples who have thrown in their lot with them. We’ll be back Friday for our SpoiLORE edition that delves into the background details of the World of Ice and Fire as well as mines for hidden details that may yet remain in the source books!

Jim and I talk about our initial thoughts on Netflix’s new shows; Black Summer, Special, and You vs. Wild. We ponder the age old question, what’s harder to kill, the zombie genre or Bear Grylls?
We’re so close we can feel the dragon fire! HBO dropped a brand new trailer for the long anticipated final season of Game of Thrones yesterday, and we’re here to discuss it, in tedious detail. Spoiler warning for anyone sitting the promotional material, because we’ll be analyzing this thing frame by frame! We’ll also be discussing our plans for coverage of season 8; which we hope will be the most current and comprehensive around. Does Jon become a dragon rider? What could possibly terrify Arya? Who is the mysterious leader of the Golden Company? Why does the Mountain look like a cross between a Kong-brand dog toy and a butt plug? All these questions and more are covered!
Jim and A.Ron discuss their thoughts and feelings about the season opener for HBO’s hilarious and thought-provoking Barry, then Cecily swings by the studio to talk American Gods (00:31:07) episode “The Greatest Story Ever Told”.
A.Ron and Anthony are back to talk Game of Thrones and Gods of Thrones! This week we discuss the curious coincidence of Stark children warging, how the British legend of Bran the Blessed could tie into the fate of Brandon Stark, and how Jaqen H’ghar functions as a literary genie of the bottle.

A.Ron and Cecily are back and catching up on season two of Starz American Gods! We’re definitely seeing some of the weaknesses the critics and some disgruntled fans have been complaining about in isolated scenes; the road trip with Wednesday and Nancy being a particularly glaring example.

This is a podcast where Jim and I, using tools created for the purpose, randomly generate a title for a fictional TV show. We then pitch ideas to each other based on what that show would be like if it were real. We like to call it, “Quit Yer Pitchin’!”
