HBO promised not one, not two, but at least four spin-offs of George R.R. Martin’s hit series Game of Thrones (GoT), however its main focus wouldn’t be on any of the show’s main cast. It makes sense – Westeros and the surrounding lands are thousands of years old, so its scope has to diverge from … More Which GoT Characters Are Most Likely to Get Their Own Spin-Offs?
Have you noticed a rise in the number of historical fiction TV shows over the past few years? Audiences seem to love watching narratives set in ancient times. What’s more interesting is that many of the shows have Roman ties. Shows like Netflix’s Roman Empire: Reign of Blood, Amazon Prime’s Britannia, and even the comedy … More What is Television’s Obsession with the Roman Empire?
HBO will debut the seventh season of Game Of Thrones on July 16, which means we’re less than a month away from a return to the Seven Kingdoms. It’s one of the most popular shows on television, and with fans well aware that there are only two seasons remaining, people are expecting answers to some … More TV Binge Report: Our Biggest Questions For Game Of Thrones Season 7
During some TV binges, there is a specific moment when you just know for sure you’re on board. While watching Sense8, that moment came for me in episode four. One character begins singing karaoke—specifically, “What’s Up” by 4 Non Blondes. As he sings, we see seven other characters, located over the world, begin to sing the … More TV Binge Report: Sense8
It seems like all everyone has been talking about the past few weeks is Netflix’s latest show—Stranger Things. Created by Matt and Ross Duffer and set in small-town Indiana in the 1980s, this show seemingly came out of nowhere. There was little buzz before its release, the premise was largely a mystery, and yet many … More TV Binge Report: Stranger Things
Now, this is quite an ambitious binge. I say “is” rather than “was” because I am still working on it—I am currently around the middle of season 11, meaning I have spent roughly a full week of my life (spread out over a few months) watching this show. That’s not at all disturbing, but I … More TV Binge Report: Grey’s Anatomy
Girl meets boy. Girl and boy have a lot of issues. Girl and boy treat each other like crap for a while and dance around their feelings. Maybe girl and/or boy learns something from this dysfunctional experience. This formula is more and more apparent in modern day television (and, unfortunately, modern day relationships). You’re the … More TV Binge Report: Love on Netflix
After months of everyone consistently telling me Fargo is one of the best shows currently on TV, I finally listened and checked it out. I should preface this by saying that I have not actually seen the movie that inspired it. As it turns out, everyone was right, because this show is a gem with … More TV Binge Report: Fargo
“I’m gonna leave you anyway.” This refrain comprises most of the theme song to You’re the Worst, which, as advertised, is a rather dark, quirky comedy about some less than likable human beings. Would I want to be friends in real life with basically any of the characters on this show? Absolutely not. But are … More TV Binge Report: You’re the Worst
While I’ve been writing mostly about theater lately, that doesn’t mean I haven’t been watching lots of TV! Let’s rewind to a great Netflix binge from the end of 2015: Master of None. Created by Aziz Ansari and Alan Yang, this quick watch initially seemed a bit unremarkable on the surface, but by the end … More TV Binge Report: Master of None
