game of thrones jaime lannister cersei lannister

Content warning: this post contains mentions of sexual violence and rape. Do you remember that Bryan Adams song from the 90s? (Everything I Do) I Do It for You? That song could easily describe Jaime Lannister’s feeling for his twin sister Cersei. Though he comes off as confident and cocky at the beginning of the show, every major action of his can be traced back to his love for Cersei. Shove a 10-year-old boy out a window? Done to hide Cersei’s secret. Beat his own cousin to death in order to escape from the Stark’s camp? Done so he can get back to Cersei. RefuseRead More →

game of thrones sansa stark

It’s easy to argue that Sansa Stark transformed more than any other character in Game of Thrones. She’s gone from a naive brat to a wise leader. Some of this is simply because of all the horrible things that have happened to her, but it’s also because she had the two best teachers that Westeros could offer — Cersei Lannister and Petyr Baelish (aka Littlefinger). It would be easy for someone to spend time around these two characters and not learn a thing. So, what makes Sansa a good student? She’s a good listener. Aspiring Princess When the show begins Sansa wants nothing more thanRead More →

Hey, Geeks! Welcome to Your Favorite Thing Sucks, where I get to talk about all the worst parts of your favorite things. The new season of Supernatural premieres today and way, WAY too many of you are excited about that. Let’s talk about where you went wrong. Complacency is No One’s Friend Supernatural started off with a pretty cool premise. Two brothers that are surprisingly easy to love bond while fighting demons and daddy issues in equal measure. Good times. And in the beginning, it was a great ride. There was a specific demon with a specific weakness. The brothers grew and changed and learned to face this adversaryRead More →

game of thrones arya stark melisandre

Many of the exciting reunions we can expect in the final season of Game of Thrones are from characters who have a lot of history between them. But there are two characters who interacted for less than a minute, and their reunion has the potential to be one of the most interesting. Those two characters are Arya and Melisandre. The Meeting Arya and Melisandre meet when the latter comes to take Gendry away to use his blood to help Stannis. By that time Arya has significant feelings for Gendry, even though they may be completely plutonic. Once she learns Melisandre plans to take him away,Read More →

Hey, Geeks! Welcome to Your Favorite Thing Sucks, where I get to talk about all the worst parts of your favorite things. It took 12 seasons, but The Big Bang Theory is ending. And honestly, at this point, I’m just wondering what took so long. Let’s talk about why it caused more harm than good.   The Big Bang Theory is Really Just a Show About Stereotyping. And Not the Stereotyping You Should Expect. Look. I get it. The Big Bang Theory is supposed to be a positive representation of nerd culture. The poster children for the ‘losers’ that don’t normally get to be the hero or evenRead More →

It’s not certain whether some characters will meet again in the final season of Game of Thrones. For example, we don’t know whether Sandor Clegane, better known as The Hound, is headed to Winterfell with most of the other characters. But if he is, his meeting with Sansa Stark should be an interesting one. Little Bird All of The Hound’s interactions with Sansa take place during the first two seasons. During that time Sansa is very much afraid of him. It’s not surprising considering how unpleasant he is. He even says some things to her that are deliberately trying to scare her. Despite all ofRead More →

Hey, Geeks! Welcome to Your Favorite Thing Sucks, where I get to talk about all the worst parts of your favorite things. Even if you’re not an anime fan, chances are you recognize a certain spiky-haired boy wearing a bright orange jumpsuit. And I’m almost certain at least a tiny part of you hates him. We’re talking about Naruto (the anime, not the manga). Naruto is Basically JUST Filler Even die-hard Naruto fans (yes, I am aware of their rather derogatory designation in the fandom community. No, I will not be using it at all in this article) are aware that this is a huge issue.Read More →

game of thrones arya stark the hound

While lots of characters will definitely be meeting up in Season 8 of Game of Thrones, there are some who might not make it long enough to see each other. Two of these characters are Arya Stark and Sandor Clegane, better known as The Hound. But a reunion between the two is something I really hope happens. Arya and The Hound spent a bit of Season 3 and all of Season 4 together as he unsuccessfully tried to return her to her family and collect some gold in the process. Arya’s List If you’ve watched the show at any point after Season 2, you know thatRead More →

the walking dead

Hey, Geeks. Welcome to Your Favorite Thing Sucks, where I get to talk about all the worst parts of your favorite things. The Season Nine trailer for The Walking Dead just dropped, and I really feel like I should care about this slow, trundling march to whatever end awaits the series…. But I really just can’t bring myself to care anymore. Let’s talk about why. Wait. Have I Already Seen This Season? The Walking Dead has been on for 9 seasons now, which is basically a third of my life. Anything that lasts that long is going to have some off days, and it’s goingRead More →
