Wayward Pines Podcast-Season 1 Preview

Gary and Nicole have watched several trailers, interviews, and has read several reviews on the new FOX thriller, Wayward Pines. Today we discuss what we think the show is going to be about and what we hope to see. If you have never seen the trailer or even heard of the show, no worries, we discuss everything you need to know to get you ready for the season premiere, Thursday May 14th @9pm est. We are really looking forward to seeing this all star cast, which includes- Matt Dillon, Terrence Howard, Juliette Lewis, Melissa Leo, and Toby Jones. The show definitely had the feelings of Lost, Twin Peaks, Under the Dome, and Persons Unknown. We love a good mystery, especially when it turns out to not be the obvious. Make sure to catch the season premiere this Thursday.

We love listener feedback, so be sure to send all your thoughts, predictions, and comments to waywardpines@theverdictsin.com

The Strain- The Hunt is On-New Official Trailer

Last summer Guillermo Del Toro’s tv horror drama, The Strain delivered an impressive 8 million viewers on its first episode.This is another television show that is based off a book trilogy written by Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan.The show is centered around Dr.Ephraim Goodweather, who is the head of the Centers for Disease Control Canary Team. Goodweather and his colleagues are called in to investigate a plane that had landed at the airport, but had no lights on and nobody had exited the plane. Upon further inspection, it appears that all passengers except four are dead. Against the wishes of Dr. Goodweather, those four survivors are released to their families, which eventually leads to an outbreak.

I haven’t read the books, but from what I hear, the television shows strays a little from the books. I really enjoyed last season, although I do believe there is room for improvement, and with the success of the first season, I hope we get to see that improvement this season. The Verdicts In decided that we enjoyed where the story was headed, so we are going to cover season 2. At this time we will not have an instant cast for this show, but we will do a full recap within 48hrs after the episode airs.

If you haven’t had a chance to watch season 1, episodes are available to purchase on Google play, iTunes, and Amazon. Hopefully they will have a season 1 marathon before season 2 starts.

The official premier date for season two has not been announced, but if it is anything like last season, it will premiere mid- July. I will provide an update once it is given. In the mean time, a new trailer has just been released and is listed below.

Let us know in the comment section what you think of The Strain series, or what you think of the trailer.

Game of Thrones- 504i-“The Sons of the Harpy” Instant Cast

Tonight Gary and Nicole discuss their immediate thoughts on Game of Thrones S5E4- “The Sons of the Harpy” We really loved the fighting scenes, especially the one with Ser Barrister and Grey worm fighting like Jedi’s. No matter what happens or has happened, they fought like kings. We finally were introduced to the sand snakes…we wonder if they are really willing to start a war. And it appears of the honeymoon period is over for Margaery and Tommen. we will have our full recap up Tuesday evening, in the mean time make sure to send us your feedback, comments, and questions to watchthethrone@theverdictsin.com

503- High Sparrow- full recap

Tonight Gary and I go scene by scene discussing the third episode of season 5 of Game of Thrones. We loved how Jon Snow took charge when he had a rebel in his pack. We loved that Arya did not throw Needle away. We loved that Tommen became a man. We did not love the fact that Brienne was bullied as a young girl and made to feel less than whole. We did not love the fact that Littlefinger has made an alliance with the Boltons to marry Sansa off to Ramsay. We did not love that Jorah Mormont has kidnapped Tyrion…he was coming on his own terms.

503i- High Sparrow- Instant Cast

Tonight Gary and I give our immediate reaction to Game of Thrones, S5 E3, titled “High Sparrow”. Tonights episode didnt see a lot of action, which is just fine with me, because the action that we did see was great. Jon Snow had to kill that coward Jonas Slynt. And he was a coward til the moment he died, so he should really be thanking Jon. Littlefinger just has no moral limit to what he is willing and not willing to do. He is marrying Sansa off to a monster, and tries to convince her it is for the best. Lets just hope Sansa turns a bad thing in to a way for revenge. Most importantly, Margaery finally gets to have sex with one of her husbands, and it seems her grandma taught her well, becuase Tommen was very happy. Check back with us on Tuesday night for our full recap. In the mean time, make sure to send us your feedback, comments and questions to watchthethrone@theverdictsin.com. As always, thank you for listening.

502- The House of Black and White- Full Recap

This week Gary and Nicole discuss Game of Thrones tv series, season 5 episode 2 titled “The House of Black and White” As always we really enjoyed this episode. The storyline is moving along at a good pace, and we are getting to see a little of our favorite characters spread throughout the episode. This weeks episode title also appears to be more than just about the black and white door of the faceless mens house that Arya goes to. The story is showing us over and over that not everything is black and white. From Ellaria and Prince Doran discussing whether a country should go to war over the death of one man, whether Brienne is relieved from her sworn oath to protect the Stark girls since they have both denied her help, and whether killing one man for killing another man, who killed another man is the right thing to do. We even have John quickly pondering her personal desires to become a Stark or keeping his oath as a man of the Nights Watch. We love how the show doesnt portray one thing or one idea as either right or wrong and that there are cleary fifty shades of grey (pun intended) to morality. As always, thank you for listening and be sure to send your thoughts, comments, criticism, or feedback to watchthethrone@theverdictsin.com

Brienne and Podrick finally have a face to face interaction with Sansa. We meet up with Arya who is not yet finished with her training. Khaleesi may be loosing the throne as she orders a public execution. The Lannisters are truly not the only ones who pay their debts, as they receive a threat.

Be sure to come back Tuesday for our full recap on this exciting episode.

501 “The Wars to Come”- Full Recap

This week Gary and Nicole are going over Game of Thrones tv series, season 5 episode 1, titled “The Wars to COme”. We went from scene to scene discussing what we thought, which ranged from the unsullied and their mommy issues, punk kids, backstabbers, weird small talk, and who we cant wait to see die. I can promise you this episode I do not have as many “anywhos” as I did in our instant cast…I think it has been narrowed down to 3, maybe 4.
