This week's #GameofThrones was pretty heavy on the Eunuchs! #GoTSeason7 #Stormborn #GreyWorm

The topic that has been plaguing my thoughts since the episode ended have to do with the juxtaposition of the show's eunuchs: Theon Greyjoy,  Grey Worm, and Varys, castrated men who face incredibly poignant moments within this episode.

#GameofThrones Made a Powerful Statement About Educational Access in #GoTSeason7 Premiere #GoT

As one would expect with Game of Thrones, there was a lot to be excited about within the Season 7 premiere. Arya is continuing her mission of revenge with one of the bloodiest season openers of the show while Dany and Cersei are drawing up their strategy…

Sometimes it is hard to say goodbye. #Homeland #Season4 #HomelandRewatch #Showtime

As my readers probably know by now, this is not my first time through Homeland. I think it is always interesting as a media scholar to return to something you once watched and attempt to think through the material using a more critical eye. One of the…

The middle #Showtime's #Homeland season four is an interesting time for #CarrieMathison...

I think that most would agree that the fourth season of Homeland has felt quite different from the other seasons. We are down a main character (i.e. Brody), much of the action is taking place in the Middle East, and, by far, one of the biggest changes of…

The #Homeland rewatch project continues with the first episodes of season 4. #Showtime #badmom

In my last post, I was very interested in the way that Carrie was being portrayed as a mother and would like to continue with and elaborate on this topic. The first two episodes of season four deal quite directly with Carrie's new reality as a "mother"…
