Tuesday August 8, 2017 | Download episode
We talk Game of Thrones once again, going into episode 4, The Spoils of War. Does it crack our Top 10 Game of Thrones episodes? We're all in on shipping Dany and Jon, but worry it's being laid on a little too thick. We also discuss Littlefinger and speculate about who's getting stabbed with the dagger. Then, we admire the "Loot Train" battle, and Shawn reveals his Loot Train MVP. We also talk about food supplies, or the lack thereof, for the long winter, and whether Dany did a little too much burnination. Finally, we make our guesses about what will happen next, focusing on the fate of Jaime and a potential Bronn bro-off with Tyrion.
Then, we preview some new shows. Jason is intrigued by Room 104, the Duplass Brother's new anthology on HBO, and unimpressed by Netflix's Ozark, a Breaking Bad-esque drama starring Jason Bateman. But we're both all-in on the wonderfully bizarre Comrade Detective, a fake 80s pro-Communist Romanian detective show featuring the voice of Channing Tatum.
