Resolved: LOTR More Realistic Than GOT

 

This post contains some spoiler from the finale of Game of Thrones and assumes some knowledge on the part of the reader of Games of Thrones and Lord of the Rings

Dany and Drogon

When talking about fantasy series it is a hard thing to talk about which was more realistic. There are a lot of ways to take the “realism” of a fantasy series, having admitted that let us look at the ways that Games of Thrones (GOT) is often said to be more realistic than Lord of the Rings (LOTR) and see which is actually more realistic.

Spoilers for Season 8, Episode 5. Game of Thrones episode “The Bells” reminded me of the famous Führerbunker scene from Downfall where Hitler chews out his generals for losing the Battle of Berlin. It would have been more satisfying if they actually took a page from Downfall and had Queen Cersei lash out and pin […]

Game of Thrones put out one of it’s best episodes ever last night examining how most of the characters spent the night before a battle that would most likely be their last. One of the main highlights was Arya and Gendry finally getting it on. After getting over the shock of seeing Arya – who […]

It’s coming into spring, which for the past seven years has meant that Game of Thrones is coming soon. Alas, the final season won’t be released until next year. In honor of the first day of Lent, though, I thought we could add some Bible study and play a game. I’ll give a plot point, […]

I know there is a a devastating storm raging over Texas, I’m sure Trump has done or said something new to offend and outrage, and lord knows all sorts of places around the world are slowly spiraling into oblivion. But, tonight the penultimate season of Game of Thrones just ended, and we need a place […]

Ricochetti love to argue. Lawyers love to argue. Therefore, it’s no surprise that many Ricochetti are lawyers. That makes total sense, right? Or maybe it doesn’t. It’s an example of faulty logic, even if it’s factually true. Very few of us are ever taught logic; most of what I knew before I started studying for the law […]

I believe I am done writing and talking about politics until 2017. Instead of complaining about politicians, let’s complain about bad storytelling. One of the more infuriating parts of the A Song of Ice and Fire novels is just how much time Daenerys Targaryen spends not traveling to Westeros to reclaim her throne. With the television […]

I’m a fan of the tv and book series. After watching most of the first season, I started reading the books and became hooked on this story. What I like about this story is that it’s unpredictable, there are dead little darlings strewn all over the place. And it’s not just the unpredictability of the […]

The Quiet Throne

 

Game-of-Thrones-Iron-ThroneNote: This post contains spoilers through the May 1 episode of Game of Thrones.

For a show whose reputation has been ubiquitous with violence, sex, and special effects — Ian McShane’s non-CoC-compliant quip is funny for a reason — Game of Thrones often succeeds most when it offers relatively quiet moments requiring little more than two actors, a good script, and a competent director operating on something resembling a normal budget. Examples are easier to find than one might think.

Trump’s Tiny Hands Crush Little Marco

 

On today’s podcast, we play the new game: Primaries or Game of Thrones. I outline a scenario and you try to guess: Is it something that happened in the primaries, or is it a scene from Game of Thrones? For instance: A sociopathic tyrant tortures a man until he turns him into his mindless lackey. Ramsay Bolton and Theon Greyjoy? Or Donald Trump and Chris Christie? Tune in. The fun is just beginning!

There are lots of youtube videos that speculate about what will happen in the final books of a A Song of Fire and Ice and seasons of Game of Thrones. I’ve watched way too many of these — most of which are hackish — but the ones from Alt-Shift-X are not only well-produced, thoughtful, and well-referenced, but are open […]

So you didn’t watch Lost 10 years ago when it was on the air, but now you’re catching up on Netflix. And you don’t want any spoilers. Tough. You might get some plot point spoiled for you. Like that…OK, I can’t actually remember any plot points from Lost, but what I mean is that at […]

So today you needn’t worry about spoilers, television and literature fans. Yea, even though I walk in the valley of the shadow of plot threads, I fear no spoilers. I’ve only seen the first two seasons of Game of Thrones, and I’ve only read the first four books of A Song of Ice and Fire. […]
