We open with our frustrations about iTunes and Adam finds Yosemite a little bit better with a newly discovered option for dashboard.
Age of Ultron trailer which I haven’t watched.
Marvel’s lineup of movies is disappointing on two fronts.
We then discuss and compare the Terminator, Jurassic World and Star Wars movie trailers.

Episode 22 has landed and it's Game of Thrones related again as Adam is still playing too much Playstation again. It could be work related, but it sounds more adventurous if I pretend he does what he wants rather than acts like a responsible person. :-)
Anyway, Charmaine joins me once again for the discussing of the first half of season three.
Music by Jez Aditore - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YRd4ARUQkbQ
- The Queen’s continued quest for power.
- Our love and hate relationship with Stannis. Is there a devil and an angel on his shoulders?
- How Stannis’ story changes from the book and TV series.
- Storm’s End and Dragon Stone (I get the castles mixed up sorry, but you’ll understand).
- I sussed out what Theon did to the two boys correctly.
- Littlefinger vs Varys.
- Dany vs slavery.
- End of episode music.
- There is never a good sword fight at the right time!
- Nitpicking at the introduction of new characters with significant actors.
We quickly discuss a TV series that I’ve introduced to Charmaine (Deep Space Nine), the first five episodes to be exact. But also we touch on how it has aged as a series. It has been 20 years now.
Then we get back to GoTh discussion with our stand out moments from the series.
- Finding out who the King beyond the wall is.
- The introduction of the white walkers.
- Theon’s toerture.
- Mormontas death.
- Margery and her relationship with Joffery.
- More female characters as the series progresses.
- Dragons and people’s lack of reaction to them.

(The Podcast of Winterfell)
Charmaine joins me again for the end of season two of Game of Thrones. We discuss here the last four episodes.
In this episode we discuss:
Sansa’s period and can the Hound smell period blood?
The Queen gives a hard dose of reality to those she speaks to.
Great Jamie Lannister scenes.
Tywin is a man I can respect.
Sex clothes. I can predict when a sex scene is going to happen.
Theon Greyjoy and his burning of two boys. I’m confused or am I correct and just don’t know it?
Admiration for Stannis.
Can the Stark kids go home? Where will their storylines take them. I make predictions.
How was Winterfell sacked?
The Direwolves and uncanny valley.
The kidnapping of dragons.
The battle of Blackwater. A quick maths calculation of men and ships and a massive nickpick of writer’s convenience.
Tyrion and his fall from grace after Blackwater.

Since our last episode on JPG, I’ve watched the whole of the first series of Game of Thrones again and have started reading the first 'A Song of Ice and Fire' book plusnoted the differences between the two mediums. I ask loads of questions again and get the names all jumbled u', but our guest Charmaine does a good job of getting me back on track.
What happens on a second viewing?
Concept of time in the books and series.
Can Stannis make more assassins via sex?
Unexpected fantasy elements.
Starting an army in Quarth.
Tyrion is a bold speaker and his love for Joffery.
The Queen’s lack of empathy.
Joffery’s lack of interest in women and his corruption through power.

I don’t understand why Jon Snow is in the wrong for beating his comrades in training.
Jon’s disappointment in the wall.
Aiya speaking names for bedtime.
Aiya and Jaqen H'ghar.
The death of Renly and the Tyrell’s.
My predictions for what the Tyrell’s will do.
Why is Ser Davos called the Onion Knight?
Is the Hound a good guy?
See Jorah, can Dany mix business with pleasure?
Theon Greyjoy’s fall from grace.
Things I don’t take in from watching the series.
The children are older in the series and I like that.
Communicating thoughts characters have in the books into the series.

(The North Remembers That Emotion)
Welcome back to our second in the series of podcasts for our TV series catchup/introduction.
Charmaine returns and we discuss Game of Thrones and Futurama.
Please note, while Charmaine sat 1 foot away from my Blue Mic and I was a metre away, I still end up speaking louder than her. Next time, she's holding the damn thing!
