Game of Thrones – “Hardhome”



May 31, 2015

As noted last week, my reviews of Game of Thrones have shifted to The A.V. Club, but I will continue to link them here for regular readers. Warning: These are reviews intended for book readers, so if you want to know absolutely no small details about the story as told in the books, you may want to steer clear.

Game of Thrones – “Hardhome” [The A.V. Club]

These partnerships and alliances—one of them long anticipated—all speak to Game Of Thrones’ interest in making a larger point about humanity. Sam argues to Olly—who does not seem convinced, we’ll get to that later—that the Wildlings are humans too, and that’s admittedly a bit facile. But what Sam is doing is going back to a basic level of human life, an idea that works to break down the “wheel” of power in Westeros that Daenerys seeks to destroy. Cycles of human conflict are what Game Of Thrones was first predicated on, but the only true, unadulterated evil in this world was the very first evil we saw in the series’ prologue—those who are no longer living.

  1. No matter how flashy the graphics, or how huge
    the welcome bonus, if the casino is run by a bunch of crooks it will not
    be a very good option for you.

  2. I think that what you posted made a ton of sense. But, think about this, suppose you were to
    write a killer title? I ain’t saying your information isn’t solid., however suppose you added something
    that grabbed people’s attention? I mean Game of Thrones – Hardhome | Cultural Learnings is kinda vanilla.
    You could peek at Yahoo’s home page and watch how
    they create news titles to get people to click. You might
    add a related video or a pic or two to get people
    interested about everything’ve got to say. In my opinion, it could bring your posts a little bit more

  3. I was recommended this website by mmy cousin. I’m not sure whether this
    post is written by him as nobod else know such
    detailed about my trouble. You’re wonderful! Thanks!
