Mike & Matt’s X-Cellent Adventures – Episode #6 – The Wolverine

Okay, feel free to skip this episode. We will not be offended. The Wolverine is one of the three unquestionably weak X-Men films. Unlike The Last Stand  or Origins: Wolverine though, this one was just really boring as opposed to hilariously awful. On top of that, we had some audio issues for the first 15-25 minutes (of this super short 40-minute episode). Things are about to pick up though with the next three episodes though! Don’t give up on us!

Game of Thrones Season 6: Where are we? How did we get here? Where are we going?

made them

Season 3 of Game of Thrones brought an end to the Stark vs. Lannister war that had dominated the show ever since Ned Stark lost his head at the end of season 1 and represented the main conflict of the show since the very first episode (which of course ended with Jaime Lannister pushing Bran Stark out of a tower).

Without that main source of conflict and intrigue, the following three seasons struggled to find that throughline that could carry things until the endgame. While the show’s audience has been treated to some absolutely spectacular moments, battles, etc. for the past thirty episodes, there was also a sense of aimlessness to the overall story.
