The Best and Worst Episodes of Game of Thrones

March 23, 2017

A while back I ranked every episode of The X-Files and posted by top ten and bottom ten.  After giving the Game of Thrones series a full rewatch, I thought I would do the same.  Now this is only up to and including season 6, as this post is being written before the release of […]

My Top 5 TV Shows of 2016

December 28, 2016

5. Black Mirror I was just introduced to this recently, but I’ve already burned through the entire series.  Netflix released season 3 after a hiatus of a couple years, releasing some very interesting sci-fi stories.  We start  off with an interesting take on social media, where everyone actually gets to rate everyone else (yes, Community […]

A Game of Thrones: A Feast for Crows

March 31, 2016

The reprint of the Game of Thrones board game included most parts of the previous expansions from the first run, so Fantasy Flight needed new ideas for the new expansion. The second expansion for the reprint is titles Feast for Crows after the 4th book in series (inexplicably being released after Dance with Dragons, named […]

A Game of Thrones: A Dance with Dragons

June 7, 2015

Dragons Not Included I’m not sure if this will be so much of a review, as a comment on how Fantasy Flight has chosen to deal with the expansions for the Game of Thrones board game. Hopefully it’s a little of both, but I may rant a little. Hopefully that’s okay. The Dance With Dragons […]

My Top 5 TV Shows of 2014

January 14, 2015

5. Orange is the New Black Netflix’s hit comedy has a swatch of interesting supporting characters, and I love shows with a swatch of supporting characters.  Sure most of them are heavy caricatures, but its still a pretty fun show. 4. Brooklyn 99 The freshest new comedy to be seen on the networks since Community.  […]

My Top 50 Board Games – Part 4: #20 – #11

July 6, 2014

About the list These are my favourite 50 board games at the present moment.  However, I will readily admit that some games here are fairly new (especially in the 40s and 30s) and may lose polish over time, or rise up to be higher up over time.  There are also many more games I have […]

My Top 5 TV Shows of 2012

January 8, 2013

5. Modern Family I am aware that Modern Family is not the be all and end all of TV Sitcoms.  The set-ups for humorous lines and situations are ridiculously convoluted and contrived.  But despite that, they are still funny.  And lets face it, there’s not really a wealth of comedy gold on the airwaves right […]

A Game of Thrones: In the Game of Thrones You Win or You Pay for the Pizza

August 22, 2012

George R.R. Martin’s “A Game of Thrones” has reached quite a peak of popularity in the last couple years, stemming from the arrival of the HBO television series. For fans of the series like myself, this was great in a number of ways. First, we got to see our favourite book series brought to life […]

The Ten Best Song of Ice and Fire Characters

August 8, 2012

A caution on this list. It will be including spoilers for both the TV and book series from books 1-5. So if you have yet to read the books or see the show, read at your own risk. There will be nothing beyond Dance, since, well, I don’t know anything. Anything I mention from beyond […]

Game of Thrones

June 9, 2012

HBO’s latest hit series is currently my favourite show on television.  A big reason for this is because I am a huge fan of George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Fire and Ice series which this is based on.  A Game of Thrones and its following novels are some of the best fantasy books I […]

My Top 5 TV Shows of 2011

December 10, 2011

Since most shows have wrapped up for the holiday hiatus already, I figured why not get a jump of the top ten lists?  Mind you, I’ll only be doing 5 since my TV viewing has dropped a lot, since I don’t have AMC or Showcase and the Networks have decided to start going with garbage […]

The Ten Greatest Works of Fantasy Literature

November 17, 2009

10. The Chronicles of Amber Roger Zelazny With the Amber novels, Zelazny created a very detailed and intricate fantasy universe. Fantasy fans have called this one of the most engrossing fantasy worlds they have ever read and remains a classic of modern fantasy. 9. The King of Elfland’s Daughter Lord Dunsany One of the most […]
