Game of Thrones Season Four — TV SEASON REVIEW


“YOU RAPED HER! YOU MURDERED HER! YOU KILLED HER CHILDREN!” –Oberyn “The Red Viper” Martell

It is a fun experience watching Game of Thrones. I don’t know how far they will deviate from the books or how they will execute certain events or scenes. Honestly, I wish I hadn’t read the books so that I could go into each season with a blank mind with no idea what is in store for me. I would be shocked when someone dies. I would get goosebumps when a character steps up. And as a reader of the books, I was still worried going into Season Four. Why? Because they had just ended Season Three on one of the biggest shocking events on TV…ever. They had gotten rid of the character viewers most likely rooted for the most. Without that aspect, would the show still be able to hold the same vibe? Would it still feel like the same show? The short answer: Yes. Continue reading

The Wire: Complete Series — TV SERIES REVIEW

THIS IS CONSIDERED ONE OF THE BEST SHOWS OF ALL TIME FOR A REASON.

BY: TIM MORSE

Wendell Pierce, Dominic West, Sonja Sohn, and Clarke Peters in HBO’s The Wire

It is hard to put into words the amount of respect I have for The Wire. It is most certainly one of the most ambitious and realistic shows you will ever watch. It is a shame that it was forced to end after five seasons. There were plenty of stories left to tell and I would have loved to watch every single one of them. The Wire is kind of like a book, in a way. There are numerous characters that fill up this story and it leaves you with just the right amount of answers. Continue reading

Game of Thrones “The Lion and the Rose” — TV EPISODE REVIEW

Natalie Dormer and Jack Gleeson in Game of Thrones

SPOILER ALERT. That is your first warning. Game of Thrones does it again. They give us a fantastic episode that centers around a wedding. Except, not as much bloodshed this time. No bloodshed to be exact. But that ending will have fans cheering for hours. It was nice to see that George R.R. Martin wrote the episode. I like that for the big episodes, or at least the ones that he is passionate about; he gets to come on and write the scenes how he wants. So lets dig into “The Lion and the Rose.” Continue reading

Game of Thrones “Two Swords” — TV EPISODE REVIEW

Game of Thrones has always been known for its unrelenting bloodshed and nudity, but it really is one of the smartest shows on television today. There is so much plotting and scheming going on behind the scenes that make this show a real treat. Of course, the real credit goes to the source material, written by the incredibly detailed George R.R. Martin. Last season left the entire world of television viewers shocked and with a horrible feeling in the pit of their stomachs after witnessing one of, if not THE most horrific event ever shown on television with the Red Wedding. But with the aftermath of all of that, where does that leave our characters (the ones that are left, at least). For those of you that are interested, here is the list of all of the characters that will most likely die before the show is over. Continue reading

True Detective Season One Finale — TV EPISODE REVIEW

The best new show on television, “True Detective”

Give that man all of the Emmy Awards that you have! Holy cow, such good acting in this episode. Its nothing new with this show. Every episode, these two guys kill it. This episode had all of the set up from last week so it didn’t take much for it to get going this week. And once again, the episode was damn good. I was worried about this episode last week though. For one, I didn’t think the “lawnmower man” was a very strong villain. And I was worried because I honestly had absolutely no idea where these two characters were going to take us. What a journey this show was. Continue reading

True Detective Episode 7 Review — “After You’ve Gone”

td_7_rust_marty.jpg.CROP.promovar-mediumlarge

“My whole life is this expanding circular fuck-up and I’m about to get clipped in a home invasion. What I’m saying is, I was aware that I might have lost my mind.” I swear I could go episode-by-episode and just pull out these amazing lines, mostly said by McConaughey’s Rust Cohle. The writing is just spectacular. The dialogue blows me away week after week.  Continue reading

True Detective — Does it Live Up to the Hype?

true
There is no denying the appeal of True Detective. It stars two brilliant leads in the likes of Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson. And they don’t disappoint. They both do things acting-wise that I didn’t even know they could do. Yes, I know McConaughey has hit a stride of amazing roles these past couple years. It all started with The Lincoln Lawyer. Then he landed great roles in films like Dallas Buyers Club, Mud, Killer Joe, and now this True Detective show. For so many years, I was used to McConaughey the “rom-com-King”. So many years went by where he did just horrible movies. They were all mostly romantic comedies, but this became his image. He was the guy from The Wedding Planner or How to Lose a guy in 10 Days. Luckily, I forgot he even did Fool’s Gold. But he has really turned his career around, picking some truly amazing roles. This HBO show is going to get some Emmy love when the time comes, there is no doubt in my mind about that. But how much love will it get? Continue reading
