I was bitterly disappointed with the end of the Night King’s story, but I took a moment to sit back on Daenerys’ turn to the crazy and found that actually… it makes absolute sense, and should have surprised no one. It wasn’t a flawless execution, that’s for sure, I think we’d have all liked more time appreciating the Mad Queen’s development, but there’s a solid foundation for everything that happened in the climactic battle of the series.
Here I want to expand upon what Tyrion said: “Everywhere she goes evil men die, and we cheer her for it, and she grows more powerful and more sure that she is good, and right.” (more…)
There’s still a couple of episodes left in the televisual titan’s total run, in that time it has met with international acclaim, made superstars out of its cast and creator George R.R. Martin, and has generally been the most talked about TV series of the decade, possibly the century so far… Breaking Bad is a solid contender, and I’m thinking Breaking Bad will be the more fondly remembered long term because it had a very satisfying finale. The last few episodes, with Walt living in exile to avoid police justice, trapped in a prison of his own making, before coming back to help the one person he considers a friend, confessing his sins, and dying with one last shred of redemption on his proverbial soul. It was understated, heartfelt, and truly glorious.
I don’t think we’ll be seeing the same thing from Game of Thrones. (more…)
Light novels are different from traditional novels in that they are much shorter, the length of what we call a novella, sometimes even shorter than that. They consist of small story arcs, what you would see in one to five episodes of an anime adaptation, and feature drawings every few pages to help with a crucial scene’s depiction, even if it’s just showing a character sitting and having something to drink.
