TV Podcast 2: Game of Thrones Season 04, Episode 03

 

Swords! Sorcery! Sex! Welcome to the second week of 8 Bit Awesome TV, again returning to Westeros. This week we finally got to see Dany back on screen, Tywin was a manipulating bastard, and a controversial rape scene took place. Typical week on Thrones, it seems.

Also, a new format! From now on we are starting the first half of the show with a Spoiler-Free TV show only discussion, and then at the half way (or so) point we clearly will yell at you that spoilers are coming and that the TV/Book discussion is about to start. We think this is a good way for everybody to listen and not worry about spoilers if they don’t want to hear them.
