  1. I know you have no time with all of these GoT episode recaps and such, but I’ve really missed your recaps of American Gods this season selfishly because I have no idea wtf is going on most episodes. Lol

    1. Oh, I know. I KNOW. I still have four episodes from last season that I just never got around to. BOO, ME.


      1. I’ve never read the source material so I didn’t/don’t know whats coming, but the episode this week was beautiful and ominous and all the things AG does so well. Then the ending through me for a giant loop! No booing! In all honesty, I appreciate what you do here and can’t for the life of me figure out how you pull it all off!
