“Dungeons and Dragons, first edition, you raped it. You murdered it. You killed my childhood.”
Bradley Martell, the Red Gamer
All seasons must end, so at the end of the fourth, we discuss Game of Thrones, the most illegally downloaded show of all time. (I’m not sure that counts as the iron price.) We share our favorite and least favorite characters as well as the storylines we love and the controversies we, well, love.
SPOILER ALERT: There was no way to discuss the series without discussing the series.
We spent 2011 painstakingly researching the cultures and wars that shaped the knight and samurai in order to give you an hour of solid entertainment. It would take us longer to list all of the topics we cover in the episode than the actual running time. (I’m not sure how that’s mathematically possible, but it’s true.) We even manage to squeeze in some Roman history, if Spartacus: Blood and Sand counts as history.
Happy New Year!
It’s our 25th episode, and we celebrate with our most self-indulgent one to date: a two-part review of our current passion, HBO’s Game of Thrones. This makes you wonder what’s in store for episode 50. A look at the mechs of Lyal’s Ghost Bear trinary? Chris’s guide to the peanut butters of the world? Wayne’s glowing review of Warmachine and Hordes? (Oh, wait. We’re doing that last one before episode 50. Spoiler!)
As promised, Waymar Royce was played by Rob Ostlere.
Correction: Peter Dinklage was in The Station Agent, not “The Stationmaster”.
