Interests: with logic like that, do you really want to know everything I'm interested in? Maybe not. If I'm writing about it, I'm interested in it and lets leave it at that.

King Joffrey Baratheon (Jack Gleeson) "The North Remembers" After Binge-Viewing "Game of Thrones" last year, Season 2 wastes no time revisiting the cruelty of King Joffrey Baratheon (Jack Gleeson), reminding us how much it affected the end of Season 1.

"18 miles out" The idea is take Randall out 18 miles from the farm and set him free. Why Randall is still alive is only logical in this mess of a series. I give up. What started hopefully with such drama has turned into a steaming pile of poorly done... Continue reading

"Los Ciegos" We open with Clark viewing old footage from an "Undiscovered Country", looking longingly at footage of Tess.
