A Now His Watch Has Ended – Game of Thrones 5×10 Review

The most shocking moment for me wasn’t the Julius Caesar-esque ‘For the watch’ moment, it was the fact that after a season of ‘wtf’ and ‘meh’ I finally enjoyed an episode. Perhaps it was the very episodic nature of it, perhaps it is because a lot of action that we’ve been waiting for happened, perhaps it’s the numerous deaths, perhaps it’s the fact that we’re left on cliffhangers that not even I, as a book reader, know the outcome of.

5 Reasons Why the Princess Diaries Series is A Timeless Classic

One of the pinnacle points of being a 90’s kid is the sense of nostalgia permeating everything, there has to a reason why there has been so many reboots and remakes over the past couple of years – we eat those things like breakfast cereal. So it was no surprise to me that the release of the new Princess Diaries book this past week had me fangirling almost as much as if the Spice Girls announced another reunion *holding thumbs*.

Comic of the Day: Amazing Spider-Man #2

I’m beginning to fall in love with Spider-Man again. This comic was far better than it’s predecessors, even better than the other heroes, especially the Human Torch, who is also a teen hero but I’m starting to get bored of his antics. Peter Parker is refreshing for me, he’s funny, witty, smart but still is realistic in that he makes dumb and arrogant decisions just like an ordinary teenager.

My Foray in the First 50 Marvel Comics

I have this pedantic need to start at this beginning, to know it all. I can never casual bounce into a TV show, if a movie that I haven’t seen is on and it’s already started I won’t even bother watching it and you best know if I come into a story halfway through you have to start from the beginning again. So even though I have been reading Marvel comics off and on for a long time, my obsession with the MCU especially Agents of SHIELD, Agent Carter and the podcast LEGENDS of SHIELD got me wanting to read the comics more orderly, and thanks to the podcast I was introduced to CMRO Reading Order.

Top 5: Epic TV Show Couples

top5

With all the TV shows ending for the season (and some forever) I decided to return to this my lonely blog to profess my undying love for the epicness of TV show couples. What I enjoy about TV show couples compared to those in movies is that in movies we only see a snippet of their lives together but in TV shows you see it all in detail – what they were before they were together, how they got together, their problems, their fears, the break-ups and the make-ups, all in technicolor glory. For me, an epic couple is not just one that is together on the show but one where love defeats all, one that has been through hell and back but their love is what saves them (you get the just). They’re the couples that make your insides twist with emotion, making you smile with elation when they finally get together or when the one just looks at the other in a pleasing way…This list on some of the most epic TV couples of the last 30 years was compiled with the help of some people on Facebook:
