Having completed their GCSEs, Alfie is keen for his class to join him on one last hurrah and what follows is a coming of age story like no other, the best school trip ever!

TV Review: Game Of Thrones: Season 5, Episode 10: Mother’s Mercy [HBO]

15 June 2015 2:06 PM, PDT | Film-Book | See recent Film-Book news »

HBO’s Game of Thrones Mother’s Mercy TV Show Review. Game of Thrones: Season 5, Episode 10: Mother’s Mercy brought several main character’s season long arcs to a close, striking a typically “Game of Thrones-ian” balance of closure for season 5 and rabid anticipation heading into  season 6.

Stannis, Stannis, Stannis (Stephen Dillane). What is there left to say about the would be king of The Seven Kingdoms? We already knew that he was out of the running for the Westerosi father of the year award, but the unfortunate string of events he endured in this episode showed him there is always a lower emotional rung to sink to. There was a bit of dark comedic timing in the way the soldiers reported increasingly dire circumstances to Stannis that was reminiscent of a Monty Python sketch.

‘Game of Thrones’ Delivers Stunning Season Finale (Spoilers)

14 June 2015 8:41 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Game of Thrones” has a reputation for gigantic penultimate episodes, followed by lower-key season finales. Well, so much for that theory. In a head-spinning sequence of events, the fifth season’s closing chapter delivered an abundance of jaw-dropping moments, ending one quest to sit on the Iron Throne and leaving other key players suspended – at least until the next go-round – in considerable peril. Although the season was marred by controversy regarding its brutal treatment of female characters, the finish offered a reminder that there is simply nothing else on TV to rival the show’s immersion into a world of such epic storytelling.

The credit “directed by David Nutter” – the pilot maestro who brought his distinctive touch to the shocking “Red Wedding” episode – might have been the first clue that this would be an hour that would command undivided attention. That began (and Spoiler Alert if you have yet to »

The Mother’s Mercy trailer begins with a Jorah, Daario and Tyrion waiting anxiously in Daenerys’ throne room. We get a brief glimps of a pensive Jon Snow before a tight shot of a desperate looking Cersei.  We hear Melisandre state that the lord of light has made good on his promise, likely a reference to receiving his good favour in exchange for the sacrifice of Shireen. We see two brief shots, one of Arya followed by Brienne and Podrick before closing with a defiant Sansa claiming, “If I’m going to die, let it happen while there is still some of me left”.

Game of Thrones Season Five – Episode 9 Review

8 June 2015 2:09 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Oliver Davis reviews the ninth episode of Game of Thrones Season Five….

The Dance of Dragons.

Directed by David Nutter.

Written by David Benioff & D.B. Weiss.

Stannis

Game of Thrones’ history with episode nines is pretty gory. Ned getting beheaded, the Red Wedding and the Battles of Blackwater Bay and Castle Black all occurred in each of the four seasons’ penultimate instalments. But with last week’s epic White Walker-centric episode eight, perhaps they shot their blood-spilling load early. Maybe, instead of our favourite characters suffering horrible deaths, we’d get some Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) and Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) light banter, or Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and Bronn (Jerome Flynn) continuing their lads’ holiday down in Dorne.

Nope. They set a child on fire.

usually, the Internet would react rather strongly – a kid being burnt at the stake and all that – but it seemed to have used up all its outrage »

Recap & Review: "Game of Thrones" Season 5 Episode 9, "The Dance of Dragons"

7 June 2015 8:58 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The ninth episode of every season of "Game of Thrones" is the one people remember. The last four seasons gave us the fate of Ned Stark (Sean Bean), the Battle of the Blackwater, the Red Wedding, and the Battle of the Wall. For season five, the memorable action-packed episode was delivered early in the form of "Hardhome", but "The Dance of Dragons" features an ending that should find its way into that pantheon. Before that ending, the show has a bit of business to take care of to set up the finale. In Dorne, Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and Prince Doran (Alexander Siddig) broker an unstable peace. Doran, again, recounts his horrendous experiences with war which serve to highlight why he is, seemingly, willing to do anything to prevent hostilities with King's Landing. He is even willing to let Myrcella (Nell Tiger Free) return with Jaime provided his son, Trystane (Toby Sebastian »

Game of Thrones Season Five – Episode 8 Review

1 June 2015 2:02 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Oliver Davis reviews the eighth episode of Game of Thrones Season Five….

Hardhome.

Directed by Miguel Sapochnik.

Written by David Benioff & D.B. Weiss.

“This is my Randy Orton pose.”

Um…wow. Things…things really escalated quickly there. I mean, stuff got out of hand first. A lot of people died. And then those dead people got up to make more people dead. What do you mean we can’t talk about that first? The other plot lines?! They were good, but c’mon – White Walkers. Ok, ok…

Tyrion and Daenerys

Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) and Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) have finally met and the Imp is pitching himself as Khaleesi’s new advisor. Lord knows she needs one. Jorah’s (Iain Glen) been re-exiled to the non-friend-zone, Ser Selmy is dead and Daario Naharis (Michiel Huisman)…can we not go onto the White Walker stuff yet? Fine.

Daenerys seems harsher in Tyrion’s company. »
