    Tywin makes two swords from Valyrian steel. He gives one to Jaime who refuses to head to Casterly Rock. Joffrey mocks him, Cersei won't touch him and Brienne reminds him of his oathe to protect Sansa. Sansa is spending time alone but agrees to wear a necklace given to her by Ser Dontos. Oberyn Martell arrives in Kings Landing with talk of revenge. Arya acts out vengeance of her own in partnership with the Hound. Jon Snow justifies his actions to the Nights Watch while Ygritte nurses her grudge in the company of cannibalistic Thenns. Daenerys watches her dragons grow up while flirting with Daario Naharis. The road to Meereen is paved with dead slaves.

  • Hi everyone, As you can probably imagine producing podcasts takes a lot of time. An hour to watch the show, sometimes an hour to write, an hour to read and edit feedback, an hour to record, an hour to edit and post and prepare for the next one. Between "The Walking Dead" podcast and the Buffy Rewatch my spare time is well used up. Over the years I had hoped to turn TheTVCritic into my second job. I wanted the time to make it more professional and try and suck in some more people who might initially be put off by views or presentation.

  • Hey everyone, As I announced on the podcast for The Walking Dead's "After", I recently read Compendium One of the graphic novels. I then recorded a podcast summarising each chapter briefly and commenting on it in my usual style. The podcast is 2 and a half hours long by the end but obviously every second is audio gold :-) I'm asking listeners to donate $5 or more to get their copy of the podcast. Just click on the donate tab and leave me $5 and then email thetvcritic@gmail.
