Game of Thrones: Season 3, Episode 9 Deconstructed

Welcome to “It Is Known – Season 3 Deconstructed”! Every week, you will find my extensive review of the week’s episode of Game of Thrones

I will explore the narrative that the show weaves. And what a narrative indeed! The story is complex, the characters are manifold, the twists and turns unexpected. I will deconstruct the episodes piece by piece, moving from character to character. This is an unusual approach, I admit, and a bit cumbersome at times, but the show basically does the same. The episodes are just parts of one, epic story, and as parts we have to examine them if we hope to get everything that happens. 

 

This Week's Episode: "The Rains of Castamere"

Game of Thrones review: Season 3, Episode 8

Based largely off of the first half of George R.R. Martin’s behemoth of a book, A Storm of Swords (which is longer than the entirety of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings trilogy!), the third season of HBO’s Game of Thrones brings all of the plot lines, character beats, and thematic developments from the first two years to a climatic head.

Matt Smith departing Doctor Who

The Eleventh Doctor will bring his run as Doctor Who to a finale this December. Today the BBC announced that Matt Smith, the actor presently playing the near-immortal Time Lord in the show, will be departing the series after the airing of the 2013 Christmas Special.

"Doctor Who has been the most brilliant experience for me as an actor and a bloke, and that largely is down to the cast, crew and fans of the show," said Smith in an official release originating from the BBC. "I'm incredibly grateful to all the cast and crew who work tirelessly every day, to realise all the elements of the show and deliver Doctor Who to the audience."

Opinion: Why Star Trek Into Darkness fails

Spoiler warning: Now that Star Trek Into Darkness has arrived in theaters, it’s fair game for the discussion of spoilers. I plan on revealing several key secrets that take place during Into Darkness, so if you don’t want to be spoiled in advance, look away.

There, that’s settled.

Promo: Agents of SHIELD

This weekend ABC announced that it had picked up Marvel's Agents of SHIELD as one of its' new fall series. I can't imagine anyone being surprised by the news, since The Avengers earned over a billion dollars at the box office and the film's director serves as the director of the pilot SHIELD episode.

The news would have made far more of an impact had ABC decided not to pick up the show.

Review: Iron Man 3

Iron Man 3 proves that Hollywood can make a better second sequel than the first one. In the case of this franchise, Iron Man 2 wasn’t a bad movie, but it also didn’t escape the confines of what was safe and predictable. Mickey Rourke’s Whiplash villain was fun to watch on-screen but the road to that film’s resolution surprised no one, and that cockatoo of his just weirded me out.
