Dead Season Discussion: Knocking Over the Board in Game of Thrones Season 3 (Part 2 of 4)

GoT

Welcome to the second installment of Dead Series Discussion, where Patches of Nothing but the Rain and I will discuss Season 3 of HBO’s Game of Thrones. Not only is Game of Thrones more popular than our first effort, ABC’s Last Resort, but we also like it more, meaning we probably won’t spend 2,000+ words discussing what we didn’t like about the show. Like our previous Dead Series Discussion, this is a multi-part series. You’re reading Part 2. Part 1, Part 3 and Part 4 are also available.

If the title didn’t make SEASON 3 SPOILERS obvious, then you need to start paying attention while you read. There are also spoilers for the first two seasons of Game of Thrones and the first 3 books of George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series. There are, however, NO spoilers from books 4 and 5, beyond one mention of the general timeline for those books and what season 3 of the TV show covers.

SPOILERS ABOUND!

With that, our Skype-based discussion and analysis of Season 3 continues… Continue reading

Dead Series Discussion: Last Rites for Last Resort (Part 4 of 4)

LRT

What follows is the third of four posts about the canceled (or “dead”) ABC series Last Resort (2012-2013). It is a structured discussion of the series between me (Jeff) and my friend (Patches). The post was originally planned for his page, Nothing but the Rain (as it was his idea, and he wrote the brief introduction below). He has allowed me to simul-post it here as well, so don’t be confused by some of the interaction. You can read Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3 if you haven’t already.  Keep in mind, we discuss the entirety of the series, so if you were one of the tens of people who watched the show, enjoy. But, f you’re one of the billions who didn’t:
