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 →

game of thrones tyrion lannister sansa stark

The last season of Game of Thrones will be filled with reunions. Some of them will be happy, but some will be a little awkward. The reunion between Sansa Stark and Tyrion Lannister is likely to be one of the awkward ones. This is because Sansa and Tyrion used to be married (not that either of them wanted to be). In season 3, in a bid to spread the Lannister family name to all corners of Westeros, Tywin Lannister forces Tyrion to marry Sansa. This move will help the Lannisters rule The North, in addition to the other parts of the country. Saving Sansa Before theRead More →

Hello dear readers, and welcome to our Marvel Cinematic Universe Power Rankings!  Marvel Studios gifted us with a treat this year of 3 MCU movies (sorry Deadpool fans, but not sorry) between February and July.  Two of those movies made a strong case for the contentious #1 spot, and it was the most difficult ranking for me to do yet. Where do Black Panther, Infinity War, and Ant-Man & The Wasp stack up in the ever-expanding Marvel catalog?  Let’s take a look! In order to facilitate these rankings, I want to share how I think about these movies in order to rank them.  My rubricRead More →

game of thrones arya stark gendry

Arya Stark is the character likely to experience the most reunions in the final season of Game of Thrones. She spent most of the show wandering around with one or two companions and then crossed the sea alone. Therefore she’s been detached from most of the plot surrounding the battle for the Iron Throne. One of the characters she spent time with is Gendry. The Night’s Watch Arya and Gendry first meet when they both leave King’s Landing and head north with the new recruits of the Night’s Watch. Arya is dressed as a boy in order to disguise her and keep her safe. ButRead More →

Where Season One of Westworld focused on the allegory of the maze and the inward journey toward consciousness, Season Two kept its eyes on the horizon, escalating toward a showdown at the mysterious Valley Beyond. Who made it? Who didn’t? And the biggest question of all… how long do we have to wait for Season Three? There’s a lot to unpack about the finale and about the season as a whole so, for simplicity’s sake, we’ve created the handy chart below to recap the fates of the characters and their status – at least with the evidence that we’ve been given so far. Obviously, onRead More →
