Now that we’ve had some time to mentally process Game of Thrones and actually breathe from experiencing this roller coaster ride of a show, let’s take a moment to analyze what the hell we just watched.
**SPOILER ALERT** DO NOT PROCEED IF YOU HAVEN’T WATCHED SEASON 7. YOU’VE BEEN WARNED!
Game of Thrones came in with a BANG this season. No stone was left unturned and a lot of our burning questions were finally answered. Granted, there is still A LOT we don’t know and I expect Season 8 to be jaw-dropping good with an ending we won’t see coming — I hope.
Before the season started, I had a number of predictions that I — 100% — thought would occur (well…actually…maybe it was more like 85%, if I come to think of it). I based most of my predictions off the books and hoped the directors would not forsake George R. R. Martin’s artistic genius in Season 7. Boy, was I wrong.
I haven’t written anything in a while, so I felt it was necessary. I write about everything I’ve watched and what I feel about it. Lately, TV has been so blah with the exception of “Game of Thrones” which just had it’s Season 7 finale, and might I add that this was one of the best seasons of Game of Thrones. The finale could’ve been better, aside from those last few minutes. Also, sad day for sci-fi fans. My favorite show “Dark Matter” just ended it’s third season and the SyFy channel has officially decided to cancel it. Since then, Dark Matter fans have been going crazy with petitions and fan art. Hopefully someone picks up the show (crosses fingers). With major network TV shows taking a backseat for the summer, Netflix has taken the liberty to entice us with some new shows and seasons of our favorites.
So everyone was anticipating Netflix “Marvel’s The Defenders”, but two shows that came out of left field and caught everyone off guard was “Voltron The Legendary Defender” Season 3 and also “Narcos” Season 3. It seems like you forgot that Narcos and Voltron were scheduled to come out between these last two months. I for one was on tumblr and saw a gif set of Voltron of scenes I’ve never seen before and on the bottom it said Season 3 August 4th. I jumped up and headed straight to twitter to see if this was real. Same thing with Narcos. I legit knew about the new season but didn’t know the release date until maybe 2 to 3 weeks prior. I’ve been slacking, but these shows and the exception of a few others definitely got me through the summer.
Does anyone else feel like summer just came out of nowhere? I mean, a week ago I was freezing my butt off, bundled up in blankets, sweaters, scarves, jackets and whatever else….and today it’s 80 (mofo’in) degrees! I have crazy, humidity hair! Ugh.
I see spring done gave up, and decided she ain’t gonna be around for all this global warming ish. We were straight cut off this year.
And speaking of cut off, how goes your summer TV watching? Mid-season shows have ended and I’m stuck in limbo surfing channel to channel for a nightly prime time selection. I know it’s summer when my TV yells at me to get the hell off my couch and do something productive.
TV: “Go to the gym!”
Me: Ha! TV, you’re hilarious.
But technically, it’s not summer until all the Game of Thrones eps are over, and we have 4 more of those bad boys! I refuse to delve into my summer TV rut until after GOT is over. Somehow, deep down, I know Netflix will save me, though. Especially with OITNB on the horizon. Yay!
If you missed it, a lot has transpired over the past week or so, specifically with TV and movies. Hot topics, for me, consist of The Flash, Game of Thrones, and (although I hate to admit it) X-men: Apocalypse. Yea, I took time to see it over the weekend, and man, am I disappointed.
But before I get into that, I just wanted to let you know…this is your RiceBall Recap.
