This is our podcast where we analyze TV. We love to dive deep into our favorite shows and analyze them. Instead of episode by episode recaps, we split it up by topic, so we can explore themes that stretch across an entire season or series. Deep dives are usually posted on Thursdays.

On Tuesdays, we host a weekly TV Roundup where we chat about what we watched that week and do spoiler-free previews.

The start of “Loot Train Attack” reminded us of the cavalry charge from LOTR’s Battle of Helm’s Deep. Particularly the shots of the defensive spear formations and Dany / Gandalf’s opening assault…pretty cool to watch side by side! 💯 ➖ #gots7 #loottrainattack #lotr #thetwotowers #gandalf #flyyoufools #lordoftherings #gameofthrones #gaemofthrones #danytargaryen #daenerys #targaryen #dothraki #cavalrycharge #lotr2 #helmsdeep #lannister #thespoilsofwar #khaleesi #gotseason7 #gandalfthewhite
