  • Hey, I have moved the Game of Thrones podcast (A Pod of Casts) to Libsyn (the dedicated podcast hosting service). This means that most of the links at thetvcritic. org to those podcasts won't work. Your Itunes subscription should work fine and if you prefer to download the files individually go here: http://apodofcasts. libsyn. com/. If you need to know the RSS feed address it's http://apodofcasts. libsyn. com/rss. If you want episode one of Season 5 right now then download from here: http://traffic. libsyn. com/apodofcasts/A_Pod_of_Casts_501_The_Wars_to_Come. mp3 If you are wondering why I don't get those links fixed then go back to the "Sort of Goodbye" Blog post.

  • *I may be gone for now but check out these podcasts:* The Angel Rewatch (with Derek and William)[https://theangelrewatch. wordpress. com/] Return to Stars Hollow: A Gilmore Girls Rewatch (with Cordia and Celeste)[http://returntostarshollow. blogspot. co. uk/] Trailerclash: The Movie Trailers Podcast (with Roberto and friends)[http://trailerclash. wordpress. com/] Hi everyone, As you can probably imagine producing podcasts takes a lot of time. An hour to watch the show, sometimes an hour to write, an hour to read and edit feedback, an hour to record, an hour to edit and post and prepare for the next one. Between "The Walking Dead" podcast and the Buffy Rewatch my spare time is well used up.

    @Syrio Thank you! You know I had a sense this was explained in the books, but it's been so long since I read book 4 that I had forgotten this important fact. This context would go a long way into expl...

    Great commens guys. @Syrio thank you for the information, that does sound better and entirely plausible. @David only problem with that is that Tyrion might have died if kept in the box that long :-)

    I really object to Roberto implying that the weakness in this episode is due to the weakness in the source material. When in fact almost all of the weakness comes from straying from the source materi...
