Game of Thrones S07-E06: Beyond the Wall went far and beyond our expectations

Season seven is coming to a close and the stakes just keep getting higher. The sixth episode was packed with monumental moments. The odds have definitely shifted, and not necessarily in favour of your favourite character. Reunions happened, words were thrown around, yet there has been no ‘happy ever after yet. We almost expected the Stark sisters to come out stronger after their reunion but, unfortunately, as is always the case in Game of Thrones (GoT), things went awry. Since Arya Stark found the letter (where Sansa Stark asked her brother Robb Stark to call of his march on King’s Landing), the sisters have become more ...

Game of Thrones season 7: The great war is here

When we last left the world of the Seven Kingdoms at the end of season six of Game of Thrones, many narrative threads were resolved.

Two and a Half Men and my list of expectations from the final season

Two and a Half Men premieres its 12th and final season on October 30, 2014. Twelve seasons. Even comedy giants like Seinfeld and Friends didn’t make it this far, getting nine and ten seasons respectively, clearly showing how successfully this show has been received by the audience. A lot of the fame can be attributed to the star-studded cast the show has; with the controversial yet famous Charlie Sheen being in the lead role for the first eight seasons, to getting Ashton Kutcher taking over “the ashes” of Sheen. Meanwhile, many huge celebrities also made regular appearances on the show, some prominent ones being Sean Penn, Megan Fox, Steven Tyler and Mila Kunis. Despite the ups ...
