Winter is Here!

by T. Mack

Game-of-Thrones

The long night is over for Game of Thrones fans, who had to wait more than 595 days for the return of the series’ final season. On Sunday night, the show returned in all its epic glory and did not disappoint. There were awkward meetings as some characters came together for the first time in the history of the series. There were heartfelt reunions as other characters came back together for the first time in years. There were several key revelations, a couple of good chuckles, one horrifying scare, and a kick-ass dragon ride!

GOT, ssn 8, 1

A whole lot was crammed into a single hour of television. I am not complaining, though. We’ve been waiting two years for this and with only 6 episodes this season, we have no time to waste. The episode was, in my opinion, a terrific start to the final season.

If you didn’t get a chance to see it, or are just wondering what all the hype is about, check out the HBO special below, “Inside the Episode” for details and the inside scoop on Season 8, Episode 1. (Watch at your own risk, for the video is dark and full of SPOILERS!)

Did you watch the season premiere of Game of Thrones? What was your favorite part? Which was your favorite reunion? Let me know in the comments below.

However, I do appreciate that many people try to stop and take a moment to be grateful for the good things in their lives. In the spirit of the season, I’ve got some of the top fandoms for which I’m most thankful. Keep reading to see if any of mine are yours, too.

For the Love… of Dragons

by T. Mack

I don’t watch HBO’s Game of Thrones. Yes, I know it’s “really great” and “epic” and “one of the best shows to ever grace television screens” or whatever. But the series also features a particular brand of ultra-violence to which I prefer not to expose myself. So I don’t watch the show. I do, however, binge-watch clips on YouTube of scenes that feature the character, Daenerys Targaryen. Why?! Because she’s the frakking Mother of Dragons! That’s why! And because dragons are AMAZING!
