Episode One Eight Zero: A Bottle Episode, with Dragons

Episode One Eight Zero: A Bottle Episode, with Dragons

Recorded 10/4/22

Google what a “Bottle Episode” is and this episode will come up as an example (probably).

This Cold War between powerful families boils over and blood is drawn (for reals).

Olivia Cooke EATS your dinner as Alicent Hightower.

And a huge, ancient dragon gets a new rider.

Episode One Seven Eight:  We are RSVP’ing “No” to any Westerosi Weddings

Recorded September 20th

We discuss episodes four and five of House of The Dragon.  The political intrigue is phenomenal.  The character moments are wonderful.  The dragons are really cool and there is terrible violence at a wedding.  It’s the best of “Games of Thrones” television.

Episode One Seven Seven: Daemon Broke Rule #1

Episode One Seven Seven: Daemon Broke Rule #1

Recorded September 5th

More Hot-D!  Character moments abound in this episode.  We recap Rhaenyra’s, Daemon’s and Visery’s big moments.  This episode is heavy in prophecy, superstition and imagery.  It also has either an awesome or ridiculous action sequence, depending on your tolerance for silliness.  And either Daemon is playing 3D chess or a basic game of hide and seek with his brother, The King.  You decide.

SPOILERS: The Targaryen Family Tree

Episode One Seven Six: If You are in a Medieval Battle, Always Wear a Helmet

Recorded September 3rd

HoT-D runs thick.  Patrick has a dumb idea (a couple dumb ideas, actually) and we talk almost as long as the episode itself.

Our favorite dragon moment of any Game of Thrones series is in this episode.  All the palace intrigue and personal conflict you could want in this episode of House of the Dragon.  

Daemon is childish, Viserys is foolish and Rhaenyra is the smartest person in the room.

“You can’t always get what you want” Analysis of Game of Thrones Season 8 by Timothy Schmaltz

By Timothy Schmaltz

“You can’t always get what you want”  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jv9sDn_2XkI

Loved the podcast, here are some of my own observations.  I really can say, I only watched the first and last seasons.

·         Loved the most human episode when they knighted the woman and faced their deaths this season, speaks the most of love and loss — and the quest for power,  the major themes it seems of the series .  

·         And that is what the last episode is all about.  

·         In life we live the paradox, life is bittersweet, really nobody wins — or loses.  Life just is — a grand adventure, full of love and loss, great joys, moments of great goodness and grace and powerful sorrows and losses. 

·         Death of one kind or another gets us all — in the end and that is what the decision scene is about.  Even in winning there is great loss.  

·         John Snow’s murder of Dani is most powerful symbol of that.  It seems  bit overdone in such obvious direct way, like hitting an egg with a hammer, but the point is made.  Huge victories achieved at high cost to others results in high cost to ourselves.   

·         The dragon’s destruction of the throne is the final symbolic seal of final vengeance — and loss for everyone.  The dream is dead too for everyone.   And everyone must let go of it. 

·         In the end, life is about loss, nobody quite gets what they want —- except for fleeting mystical moments where we sense our connection with one another, our deepest loyalties and yearnings.  

·         And in the end, the seven kingdom’s are not united, the iron throne proves to be an elusive fantasy of power and wealth — unity.  The final peace is achieved by human agreement, not by violence or even unity.  They — we have the power all along in our grasp, the violence and search for power is fantastical absurd pursuit — that is why the rock continues to fall back down the hill.  

·         The person who lost the most and appears the weakest becomes the leader/king.  Now that is almost biblical, but that may be stretching it.  That is the story the perseveres.  Look to the most vulnerable among you for your leadership.  That is the story of all of us.  The rest is fantasy.  

·         So in the end game of thrones is really about life and loss and moving on and life’s almost complete unpredictability — and the final lesson may be — be careful what you strive for, power and wealth never really overcome love and goodness — and a good story — in the end.  

·         Game of Thrones just created fantasy story to reveal these basic human truths, sometimes in powerful images, sometimes in heavy handed ways.  But it was fun ride. 

Love the podcasts.  You mother and I did not get any of the trivia questions.

One Zero Eight: Dracarys!

Episode One Zero: Dracarys!

Recorded 4/6/2019

We react to episode 4 of Season 8 of Game of Thrones.  The Long Night is over and now the final war begins, but first drinking and sex and betrayal!  It feels like classic Thrones.  We endure two tragic deaths   Jon can’t say farewell to his direwolf and Dani is oh so close to the edge.  The series is truly in its final phase and gas pedal is pushed all the way to floor. We just hope this car isn’t headed off a cliff.
