Gentlemen, Take Your Seats – A Case Study in the Art of Wordless Communication

  Game of Thrones used to have some great scenes. I know, I know, it’s hard to believe. But once upon a time, before it was the stereotypical high fantasy disasterfest it became, there was a golden age where season after season you would find it stuffed full of great scenes.

A Lion Still Has Claws – Why Reforging Ice is the Best Scene in Game of Thrones

  Everyone has their favourite scenes in Game of Thrones. Hardly surprising, as the show is packed full of epic battles, incredible monologues and exciting plot twists.

  Elijah and Klaus were no doubt the dynamic duo of The Originals. The Robin and Batman of the vampire world (unfortunately for many, minus the revealing suits), the bloodsucking murderous Bert and Ernie of the CW, the Analyze and picture-of-Analyze of the fanged figures.

  The Originals has been over for quite some time at this point. And many people were… not entirely satisfied with the ending. That is to say that I hope the writer’s room for Legacies is fireproof and they don’t accept fanmail without thorough inspection. But why were their dearest fans so upset? What lies …

Dearest audience, It is time to, momentarily, take our silly confetti spewing hats off and put our serious top hats on.

Analyze’s Diary – Entry 7: Silence of the Kitties

  Dear reader, it has been an ordeal like no other that has ever been experienced in the history of the universe. The multiverse! The omniverse! I have attempted to deafen myself several times, sadly the spoon didn’t fit in my ear. And it has sullied all the forks with its spittum. My mother has …
