Pod of Thrones (Game of Thrones Recaps and Discussions)

Game of Thrones is our first love, but there's too much good stuff out there not to branch out. Join Jeff and Jennifer as they recap, theorize, wax poetic, and geek-out on all sorts of wonderfully-nerdy things, including Westworld, The Walking Dead, Stranger Things, the Marvel Netflix universe, Comic Con coverage, and more!

If you don't think a bunch of robots fighting over who has to chop wood sounds like a great comedic moment, then you haven't seen Westworld! Join us as Loremaster Kevin once again gently guides Jeff and Jennifer through their journey into this live-action game that Jeff oh-so-desperately wants to be a part of (for the adventure, folks, not the sexy robots!). We ponder the strange relationship between Dolores and Bernard, the mysterious Albert and whether or not he's really dead, and what exactly is that "blood" that Elsie got splattered with??  Also, if you enjoyed The Stray and found Teddy's experience both scary and fascinating, go watch 2015's Bone Tomahawk. Trust us on this one!

Jeff FINALLY finished his re-read(listen) to the A Game of Thrones audiobook!  He once again presents Jennifer with his findings of various differences and omissions from the show.  And yes, of course there's time for Sexy Robot Corner - it's pretty much the thing that keeps Jennifer going during these intensely-nerdy nitpick sessions!

Jeff & Jennifer needed a pick-me-up, so they decided to go the silly route and watch Game of Bones: Winter is Cumming, a XXX porn parody!  This movie got the characters right, some references right, and a whole lot of stuff that is just wrong, wrong, wrong!  It wasn't an easy watch, but they persevered so they could deliver the blow-by-blow report to YOU.  Yep... that's the ticket.  Brace yourselves, kids, this one might get a little rough.

Jennifer gets enthralled with an article about famous musicians appearing in Game of Thrones, and then gets annoyed at how much time GRRM spends blogging when he should totally be finishing The Winds of Winter! There's also an anthology in the works called The Book of Swords, which includes a short story by GRRM, so at least *that* will get published sometime in 2017. Finally, we take a look at Maisie Williams (Arya "Superninja" Stark) in a new movie on Netflix called iBoy, and we do our best to keep that talk spoiler-free, so you're welcome!

Apart from watching iBoy (and do please tell us what you think), here's links to a couple songs we discovered during this episode:

Molotov Jukebox singing Get Ready

Robson & Jerome singing Unchained Melody

And finally, from GRRM's blog, some info on The Book of Swords!
