GWL Reborn 9/3/17: Lacking Game of Thrones on a Sunday

Now this my friends is what we call a shameless SEO moment with Game of Thrones. Of course no Game of Thrones for more than a year on HBO makes me sad. Here we are though, a Sunday without Game of Thrones. Yes, I know we’ll have The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead soon but that doesn’t fill the hole. Nothing fills my Sundays best like seeing a dragon or two on my TV screen, alas I’ll just have to settle for zombies in Georgia. Of course, now I am left with what to do with my Sunday nights TV wise. Well there’s always fun options and we’re going to talk that and more in the daily GWL adventures. Join me won’t you? On with the show my friends and what a show it is indeed.

Yes I made the shameless SEO Game of Thrones gag so no one else has to. I make the jokes before the rest of the peanut gallery.

It is strange when you’re without Game of Thrones or any sort of show that a lot of people talk about. Walking Dead used to be that show everyone talked about on a Sunday. Now while the Walking Dead is still getting ratings that most networks would kill for, the social media engagement isn’t there. Unless something huge happens on The Walking Dead, people just watch and go on their merry way. Now you note I don’t mention Fear the Walking Dead here as that show never quite had that level of engagement. The first season of Fear the Walking Dead had curiosity value and then it faded away fast. Yet another show that gets decent ratings but no one really talks about. Of course I will say the recent season has been pretty good. So there’s that.

Now outside of a podcast recording tonight for That’s the Issue with my pal Matt Lune, my Sunday is open. Matt and I go on really weird hiatuses with that show but of course that also coincided with Game of Thrones. Sunday night was one of our backup recording nights until Game of Thrones and we both like it a lot. It may not be a great guest night but for Matt and I to get a show recorded, Sunday night is perfect. Considering we are discussing Secret Empire and finishing that up, we’ll be looking forward to a new journey podcast wise. It is funny that for awhile That’s the Issue became a Secret Empire podcast, but it did. Did I mention I’m glad that outside of the epilogue Secret Empire is over? I am really glad Secret Empire is over.

More to come on my thoughts on Secret Empire on the podcast. I have thoughts, so many thoughts on that. Have fun.

Now I roll out and see what my Sunday will have in store for me. I’ll likely get a wild hair and come up with something fun to do. Maybe even catch up on some more reading. Oh if you haven’t noticed my plan is with this blog to do at least one daily post of blogging. Nothing fancy, just me talking about whatever I want for a hot minute here. It is my blog and you know I should do more long form rambling outside of 140 word tweet blasts. For anyone that read my mega ramble, I thank you as that was two hours of my life. I appreciate anyone that read that and if you haven’t, I understand. I completely understand as that is a 1,000+ word adventure. Even if you just glanced at it I appreciate it. It’s all good either way.

I am going to get back to my Sunday adventures as right now I am writing this while I am waiting for my laundry to finish. Go me being productive on both fronts. Till next post, be well, be kind, and always remember to be wonderful to each other. Bye for now!

The Bloggity Session 4/24/16: Game of Thrones has Returned!

Welcome back to another adventure in The Bloggity Session! Today has been a fairly low key day on this end. Saw two episodes of Daredevil, getting closer to finally finishing the series and it is a weird ride I have to say. I am starting to see where things are linking together but it is a little bouncy focus wise. I’ll have to judge more after the series is over, I still enjoy it though but The Punisher is still one of the best things about the show. Even Once Upon a Time was solid tonight yet of course as you all know, Game of Thrones is back. After a long time away Game of Thrones has returned to absorb our Sunday nights once more. Fear the Walking Dead is going to have a tough go against the almighty Game of Thrones powerhouse rising on HBO. I can already see that this season of Game of Thrones is going to have the fanbase buzzing. Some stuff I was hoping to happen hasn’t happened, yet there was quite a few surprises in store. I’m keeping it spoiler free but I’m curious as to how this season is going to play out. Reminds me I need to read the books at some point, desperately need to read the books. I have them all outside of The Hedge Knight stuff so I may have to get on that reading adventure fairly soon.

Game of Thrones Opening Credits

It is going to be weird to see how reactions are to this season. Game of Thrones starting with this season is now out of any territory the books have covered. Meaning that the book and television viewers of Game of Thrones are experiencing the show together, not knowing what is going to happen next. I’m intrigued to see the conversations and reviews of the show in the coming weeks and months about this season of the show. This is the second year I’m watching after being a DVD/Blu-Ray only watcher of the show for a long period of time. While I do miss getting to watch the show all at once it is also fun to be able to experience the show with the rest of the Game of Thrones audience. I add this to the Walking Dead level of shows of television I must watch the same night. If not I will have the entire show spoiled and know every single little thing about it before I know it. There are some shows I will be okay with being a day or two delayed but Walking Dead and Game of Thrones are two shows I know people will spoil without mercy. I can’t blame people for discussing the show though, it’s a complicated battle to say the least.

Nothing else to report tonight, tomorrow I get my massive comic order and the fun shall truly begin. Till next post, thanks for reading and I hope you all are doing well out there. Take care everyone! Bye for now.
