Game of Thrones Season 5 is the most controversial season of the show so far. Many factors went into this. Whether it was the show perhaps passing the books in some storylines, the show’s deviation from the source material or the way that the show adapted scenes from the books, fans had mixed reactions to the season. In this podcast episode, we delve into Season 5. But instead of simply hating on the show, we talk about the parts of the season that we liked. And we liked some of it quite a lot. But there was some that we didn’t like.
In this 1st of 2 parts, we talk about 3 locations, the 3 locations that we thought had the best plot-points from Season 5:
- King’s Landing: Cersei & the Tyrells, the Faith Militant, Tommen and Qyburn
- Braavos: The Faceless Men, the House of Black and White, Meryn Trant and Mace Tyrell
- Castle Black: Jon & Stannis, Samwell, Jon’s Election, Jon as the Lord Commander of he Night’s Watch, Hardhome, “For the Watch”
We also mentioned the 2016 ASOIAF calendar during our intro which can be purchased here!

- Our notes were not as thorough this time around due to it being much more discussion-oriented, but here’s our google doc with our notes
Thanks so much for listening, and let us know what you think! Were our criticisms fair, accurate? Did our changes make sense? What changes might you make?
Final note: We’re coming up to our 10th(!!!) episode, and we all thought it might be fun if in our 10th episode, we answered any questions or addressed any theories that you all might have for us on the blog. So, if you have questions about ASOIAF (or really anything, within some reason) or a theory that you’d like to get our opinion on, leave a comment below to this post or send us an e mail at email@example.com, and we’ll answer or discuss anything you all want to hear analyzed or discussed!
