Fantasy-Faction Game of Thrones Discussion: Season 8, Episode 5 – “The Bells”

Fantasy-Faction Game of Thrones Discussion: Season 8, Episode 5 – “The Bells” 

Episode five saw the fall of one evil queen and the rise of another. Cersei finally died at the hands of Daenerys, along with a city full of innocent civilians. Almost as surprising as Dany’s descent into full-on mad Targaryen mode was the way she so casually obliterated the Iron Fleet that had forced her […]

Fantasy-Faction Game of Thrones Discussion: Season 8, Episode 4 – “Last of the Starks”

Fantasy-Faction Game of Thrones Discussion: Season 8, Episode 4 – “Last of the Starks” 

It was the best of times and the worst of times in episode four last Sunday. The show opened with tear-jerking goodbyes and some sorely needed joy and relief from the long strife that has plagued the Seven Kingdoms. Unfortunately, it included one of the most poorly staged battles in the show’s history. Nevertheless, the […]

Fantasy-Faction Game of Thrones Discussion: Season 8, Episode 3 – “The Long Night” 

*Spoilers* Watch through Season 8, Episode 3 before reading! Episode three of GoT’s final season made for a long night indeed. In my case, I had to catch up on episode two (which I had missed while away on vacation) as well as watch episode three, which was so exciting I logged into our discussion […]

Fantasy-Faction Game of Thrones Discussion: Season 8, Episode 2 

*Spoilers* Watch through Season 8, Episode 2 before reading! If there’s one thing we should take away from the first two episodes of the season, it’s that we all just devoured with rapt attention what were essentially two hour-long episodes of placid preamble to the battle at Winterfell. With any other, less beloved show we […]

Fantasy-Faction Game of Thrones Discussion: Season 8, Episode 1 

*Spoilers* Watch through Season 8, Episode 1 before reading! In March I posted a poll in the Fantasy-Faction Facebook group asking people to name their all-time favorite fantasy serial (either TV or streaming). HBO’s Game of Thrones ran away with the number one spot, garnering almost twice as many votes as the number two series, […]

Is Voltron: Legendary Defender Worth Watching?

Is Voltron: Legendary Defender Worth Watching? 

The final season of Dreamworks’ Voltron: Legendary Defender dropped on 14th December 2018. Originally launching on Netflix in 2016, this re-boot of the 80s sci-fi adventure cartoon captured the hearts of both new and old fans alike. With a fluid animation style similar to Avatar: The Last Airbender and with a phenomenal voice actor cast, […]

Firefly: A Traveler’s Companion to the ‘Verse

Firefly: A Traveler’s Companion to the ‘Verse
4.5

I am a huge Firefly nerd. Like, seriously huge. I’ve watched the show and the movie many times. I took a movie criticism class in college and compared Star Wars and Serenity, just because I could. When I left my first full-time job, my coworker gave me Firefly comics as a parting gift. When I […]

El Ministerio del Tiempo (Ministry of Time) – TV Series Review

El Ministerio del Tiempo (Ministry of Time) – TV Series Review 

I am a sucker for costume dramas. If a show involves somebody wearing farthingales, I will give it a try, and I’ll usually hang in there even if it’s not that great. Usually on the stationary bike, I’ll pedal along, admiring fashions, upholstery, and candelabras. I’ve watched my share of mediocre historical dramas and fantasies, […]

The Man in the High Castle by Philip K. Dick

The Man in the High Castle by Philip K. Dick
4

My first introduction to The Man in the High Castle was not in printed format – I first watched the adaptation that Amazon produced. I was intrigued by the concept of an alternate reality where World War II culminates in the triumph of the Axis powers. The first season of the show was gripping and […]

Jordskott: Seasons 1 and 2 – TV Series Review

Jordskott: Seasons 1 and 2 – TV Series Review 

How far would you go to protect your child? Would you destroy a community? Commit genocide? Kill another’s child? On the Swedish urban fantasy crime drama Jordskott, the answer to these questions is often yes. Jordskott could be described as The Killing meets Trollhunter. It begins when Eva Thörnblad (Moa Gammel), a troubled police detective, […]

Over The Garden Wall – TV Series Review

Over The Garden Wall – TV Series Review 

“Leave if you wish, but remember: the beast haunts these woods, ever singing its mournful melody…” When I was young, I loved the fantasy section of the library. Not content with just the typical My Teacher Is A Werewolf! or Vampires in Space titles, I’d comb both the kids and adult sections alike for books […]

Castlevania – TV Series Review

Castlevania – TV Series Review 

You know, when I first heard that Netflix was doing a four-episode animated Castlevania TV series, I have to admit, I wasn’t really all that interested. I mean, let’s face it, video game adaptations don’t exactly have a great reputation these days. And, even without having actually played the games, I could tell that a […]
