We Talk Thrones - S7 Finale "The Dragon & the Wolf"

On this episode of We Talk Thrones, Sarah Mason and Jake Essoe review the Season 7 finale of HBO's Game of Thrones.

And now the waiting begins! So laments all of us. Game of Thrones delivered one of the most epic finales ever leaving fans with much to ponder over the next, year, year and a half, more? HBO has yet to announce the Season 8 release date so we are left speculating in the dust of the fallen Wall.

Much to unpack in the season 7 finale and a little crow (or raven) to eat #wellplayedstarks. We break it all down and talk possibilities for Season 8.

Game of Thrones Ep 70 "Beyond the Wall" Review

On this episode of We Talk Thrones from The HMC, Sarah Mason and Jake Essoe breakdown Game of Thrones, Episode 706 "Beyond the Wall".

Jon and the gang's attempts to capture a white walker are looking pretty grim when they are surrounded by an army of the dead. So many things defy time, geographic, the elements and logic in this accelerated season but this episode takes it to a whole new level of ridiculous. We break it down and preview the Season 7 finale.

Game of Thrones Ep 704 "Eastwatch" Review

This week on The Harold & Maudecast's weekly Game of Thrones recap 'We Talk Thrones' hosts Sarah and Jake review Game of Thrones, Episode 705 'Eastwatch'.

Now that I've got your attention! Said Daenerys. The realities of war have set in for Jaime who heads back to Kings Landing to report to Cersei. Deanerys returns to Dragonstone where Jon Snow is waiting to pet Drogon, more importantly Drogon seems to be waiting for Jon to pet him.

Deanerys and Jon's sexually tensed up moment on the cliff is interrupted by the return of Jorah who clearly still pines for his Khaleesi.

Meanwhile at Winterfell, Bran, doing his three eyed raven thing spies the Night King marching on Eastwick with his army. The news quickly reaches Jon who's excitement for learning Bran and Arya are alive and well is short lived with the news of the walking dead .

After hatching a pretty ridiculous plan with Tyrion and Davos: Sir Davos smuggles Tyrion into Kings Landing to secretly meet with Jaime. Jon and Jorah (and Gendry who, surprise, Sir Davos finds in Kings Landing) travel to Eastwick, pick up Tormund, travel north of the wall, capture a White Walker, bring it to Kings Landing to show Cersei the threat is real. No problem!

Over at the Citadel, Sam is growing tired of the meisters who dismiss the raven from Brandon Stark about the marching dead as fake news. Gilly inadvertently confirms unequivocally that Jon is the rightful eire to the throne. Unfortunately Sam's too busy bitching about the meisters to notice. Sam exits the Citadel with with Gilly, little Sam and a bunch of book he stole. We hope one of those books contained that bit about Rhaegar's annulment and subsequent marriage to Llyanna.

The Tarly family legacy is all on Sam now since Daenerys had his brother and father incinerated for refusing to bend the knee. No more Dickon jokes.

Back in Winterfell, Little Finger is hell bent on causing disruption, this time between Arya and Sansa. We'll see how that plays out, our money is on A Girl is No One.

Episode 705 leaves us with Jon Snow and his newly formed Fellowship of the Dead made up of, Jon, Jorah, Gendry, Tormund, The Hound, Berric Dondarrion and Thoros of Myr. We're guessing not all of these A Team members (www.youtube.com/watch?v=AMSlT5pYU3w) are gonna make it back alive. Here's hopin this accelerated season gives us an answer on that in the next episode.

Game of Thrones Ep 704 "The Spoils of War" Review

On this week's episode of We Talk Thrones from The Harold & Maudecast, we breakdown ep 704 "The Spoils of War".

Game of Thrones episode 704 "The Spoils of War" assured fans that the price for all those tears, pain and frustration for the last 7 years, was totally worth it. This was one of the greatest fan service episodes outside of the Battle of the Bastards. Jon and Daenerys have a romantic date in a cave bringing them ever closer to a fire and ice alliance. Sansa discovers her little sister is a psycho killer with mad sword fighting skills and her brother little brother has become Dr Manhattan. Hey who cares! It's a Stark family reunion at Winterfell!

The pace of this episode is fast and furious, just as the creators of Game of Thrones promised us. Instead of waiting for four episodes to see Theon return to Dragonstone and the Stark kids reunite, it happens in just one episode. Don't let it's shorter than normal run time deter you, the last 10 minutes of this episode are spectacular. It's a battle scene we've been waiting to see since Daenerys first started hanging out with those crazy Dothraki hoards. Since her children were born. Oh yeah, Dragon fire and Dothrakis. We break it all down and give our predictions for the final three episodes.

Game of Thrones Ep 703 "The Queen's Justice" Review

This week on We Talk Thrones from The Harold & Maudecast network, Sarah and Jake discuss and review Game of Thrones episode 703 "The Queen's Justice".

The creators of Game of Thrones waste no time in this episode giving fans the (incestuous) first date we've been waiting for when Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen finally meet face to face at Dragonstone. This wonderfully written scene is a reminder of why we love Thrones so much, and Jon Snow who holds his ground despite an intimidating introduction to the dragons, and Dothraki.

Continuing the fan service there's a Stark reunion. Bran returns to Winterfell but after hugs and tears, Sansa is quickly confused and shaken by the visions of the new Three Eyed Raven.

Euron Greyjoy delivers a big present to Cersei who gets her revenge on murderess, Ellaria Sand. Theon's is rescued. Samwell may have cured Jora. The Red Woman might have cursed Varys and Jamie learns from previous battle mistakes pulling a bate and switch that leads to the surprising loss of a fan favorite character.

Game of Thrones Ep 702 "Stormborn" Review

This week on We Talk Thrones, from The Harold & Maudecast Sarah and Jake review Game of Thrones Ep 702 "Stormborn".

The creators of Game of Thrones promised Season 7 would come in like a direwolf, and hopefully go out like a dragon. In episode 702 we find that Arya's direwolf Nymeria is alive & well & the leader of her own pack of wolves. Arya has another reunion with her friendly side kick turned baker, Hot Pie, who in a twist of marketing genius in real life opened his own bakery in London called, You Know Nothing Jon Dough, selling Direwolf bread. Yum. Daenerys has added some folks to her entourage, Grandma Tyrell, Ellaria Sand, Theon and Yara Greyjoy. After careful deliberation with her Hand, Tyrion, they plot a strategy. But it looks like they're underestimating Cersei who always has tricks up her sleeve. The good news is that Fire & Snow will finally meet in an episode near you soon as Jon decides (against everyone in the North's wishes) to except an invitation from the Mother of Dragons and heads off to headed to Dragonstone, Sam is (maybe) gonna cure Sir Jora of his Grey Scale, Grey Worm got something more than nothing in his trousers, Cersei has a plan for the dragons & Yuron Greyjoy is a big fat spoiler.

The Leftovers Series Finale "The Book of Nora" Review

Sarah Mason and Jake Essoe of The Harold & Maudecast review The Leftovers, Series finale, "The Book of Nora".

Season 3, Episode 8, "The Book of Nora" opens with Nora Durst (Carrie Coon) announcing her sound mind and body intent to go over the other side. Brother Matt (Christopher Eccleston) is by her side to say goodbye. Flash forward to many years in the future a much older Nora is delivering doves to a church -- fans will remember this scene from the Season 3 premiere. We are soon reunited with Kevin, also much older, who surprises Nora at her home and spins a tale of vacations and old crushes. The truth of Kevin's journey, and Nora's is slowly uncovered and revealed at the very end leaving fans to sort out for themselves whether they got an answer to the ultimate question -- what really happened to the departed?

The Leftovers finale may leave the casual fan confused but, if you're thinking this was another Lost finale, which was loudly criticized by fans who felt jipped out of a conclusion, then you've missed the point entirely. Damon Lindeloff and the creators of The Leftovers have the balls to leave this ending up for interpretation in a way that is completely true to the essence of the series. This final episode is not filled with bizarre sequences or madcap suspense in fact the story is quite prosaic. The world has moved on from the Sudden Departure and Nora and Kevin, now older, none the wiser, are normal folk. Their lives are filled with mundane routines and two week vacations. In the hands of a lessor show this may feel like a let down particularly after the crazy brilliance of the previous episode "The Most Powerful Man in the World (and His Identical Twin Brother). But this is The Leftovers which means, exploration into spiritual salvation vs damnation, weird but poignant metaphors, suicidal tendencies, poetic music interwoven strategically to punctuate in just the right places, loose ends tied up from previous seasons, and still a lot of unanswered questions. The final monologue, delivered by Nora, is the crescendo of this masterpiece concluded by its ethereal signature piano concerto.

Did we get our answer to the questions of what really happened? You decide. We're gonna take the opening song's advice and Let the Mystery Be.

The Leftovers Season 3, Ep 7 "The Most Powerful Man in the World (and His Identical Twin Brother" - Review

Sarah Mason and Jake Essoe of The Harold & Maudecast review HBO's The Leftovers, Season 3, Episode 7 "The Most Powerful Man in the World (and His Identical Twin Brother).

Well it's back to purgatory, or whatever this place is, for Kevin Garvey where the Grateful Remnant (GR) have become the ruling party. President Kevin Harvey (as he's called in this world) must work fast to stop assassin Kevin Harvey, his identical twin brother, from spoiling his plans for a nuclear launch. Assassin Kevin must work fast. He's got messages to distribute and Christopher Sunday to find so his father can stop the rain. Confused? Of course, It's The Leftovers!

One more episode to go and The Leftovers just keeps getting better and better. This episode showcases Justin Theroux's amazing yet unsung acting chops -- please give this man an award! Equally outstanding is Ann Dowd who returns as Patty Levin. There are many familiar faces popping up in this episode, like pieces of a puzzle that we can't quite put together. Never fear, it's in Leftovers we trust to sort it all out in the series finale which will air on June 4, 2017 on HBO.

For now, take a listen to our review and recap of this crazy but brilliant episode. Visit www.thehmcnetwork.com for more tv, film, game reviews and more!

The Leftovers Season 3, Ep 6 "Certified" - Review

Sarah Mason and Jake Essoe of The Harold & Maudecast recap and review HBO's The Leftovers, Season 3, Ep 6 "Certified".

HBO's drama The Leftovers is fast and furiously tying up loose ends as it nears the series finale. This week it's all about Laurie (Amy Brenneman).

After the bizarre journey to Australia, the gang has dispersed. Michael (Jovan Adepo) and John (Kevin Carroll) found their way to Kevin (Justin Theroux) at the ranch where he's been asked to die again by his father Kevin Sr. (Scott Glenn) and Aussie ranch woman turned accidental killer and new disciple Grace (Lindsay Duncan). Laurie shows up with a black eye, which we find she got from Nora (Carrie Coons) whilst on a stake out with her and Matt (Christopher Eccleston). Confused? We're all confused and loving it.

Amy Brenneman gives a heart wrenching, poignant, and beautiful performance. We find out many unanswered questions like, why'd she join the GR cult? It's the first of what will surely be very sad times ahead for the end of the show. If you can see it in the big picture context of the series brilliance, it's one of the best episodes thus far. Bravo.

The Leftovers Season 3, Ep 5 "It's a Matt Matt Matt World" Review

Sarah Mason and Jake Essoe of The Harold & Maudecast review The Leftovers, Season 3, Ep 5, "It's a Matt Matt Matt World".

Matt (Christopher Eccleston), determined to find Kevin (Justin Theroux) in Australia and bring him back before the 7 year anniversary of the Departure, charters a plane to take him to Melbourne. Along for the ride are John (Kevin Carroll), Michael (Jovan Adepo) and Laurie (Amy Brenneman). Their journey takes a bizarre and unexpected detour when an explosion off the coast of Australia grounds them in Tasmania forcing them to take the only transportation available -- a ferry that's been bought out by a lion worshipping sex cult. Yup, you heard that right. Hey, it's The Leftovers.

With every new episode of this final season of The Leftovers this series proves its superiority. You can set your watch to the performances of every cast member -- Eccleston is a genius but so is Amy Brenneman, so is Justin Theroux, Scott Glenn, Carrie Coons. Damon Lindeloff captured lightening in a bottle with this cast and as all good actors would say, it's the writing. The characters are rich, the story is all over the place yet follows a clear roadmap. Each week we get closer and closer to understanding what it all means. Here's hoping that our faith pays off in the series finale which will air on June 4. Till then, we'll keep reviewing if you keep listening.

The Leftovers Season 3, Ep 4 "G'Day Australia" Review

Episode 294 of The Harold & Maudecast with Sarah Mason and Jake Essoe features a review of HBO's drama The Leftovers, Season 3, Ep 4 "G'Day Australia".

Kevin and Nora travel to Australia, where she meets up with the masterminds of the Mark Lin Baker con; Kevin catches a glimpse of John's deceased daughter Evy and pursues her thru the streets of Melbourne only to end up confronting past demons.

It's starting to get weird folks! But isn't that why we love The Leftovers? This episode reveals some truths about Nora's tough gal exterior and leaves us with a lot of questions about Kevin's sanity. Carrie Coon and Justin Theroux are doing some of the finest work on TV today. Their performances are Emmy worthy -- please powers that be, don't rob this show of its just dues. Speaking of award worthy, shoutout to Music Supervisor, Liza Richardson, who creates the melancholy/odd//spiritual/quirky mood of the series. The soundtrack of The Leftovers gives it the punctuation mark that keeps us coming back for more.

Also in this episode of The Harold & Maudecast, our quickie review of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 (for full review visit www.thehmcnetwork.com/movie-reviews ) and synopsis of the Marvel blueprint.

The Leftovers Season 3, Ep 3 "Crazy Whitefella Thinkin" Review

Sarah Mason and Jake Essoe of The Harold & Maudecast review and recap The Leftovers, Season 3, Episode 3, "Crazy Whitefella Thinkin".

When last we saw Kevin Garvey Sr (Scott Glenn) he was high on "devils tongue" down under in Australia. Of course, this was as visioned by Kevin Jr while dead watching his father appear on a TV screen in his hotel room. Apparently that vision was correct cause look Australia, Kevin Sr is there to kick some ass and piss people off. Thanks to an old cassette recorder and tape of Kevin Sr and Kevin Jr circa 1981, we discover that Kevin Sr has the power to stop the rain. Nutty? It is The Leftovers. True or not Kevin Sr, convinced he can stop a flood that he believes will hit on the 7 year anniversary of The Departing, sets out across the outback in search of every Aboriginal song to sing before the anniversary.

Scott Glenn's performance in Episode 3 is one of the finest ever on television. Please award Gods, give him everything. If we didn't respect the show so much we would tell ya to watch this episode even if you're not caught up just to see Scott Glenn's acting chops. But, you gotta catch up. And it's worth it, and only 3 seasons.

Also noteworthy, Lindsay Duncan (Birdman, Under the Tuscan Sun), whose mysterious character Grace was introduced in Episode 2. gives a stunning also award worthy performance. In true Leftovers fashion loose ends explained and tied up to move us closer and closer to the finally. 9/10

The Leftovers Season 3, Ep 2 Review

Sarah Mason and Jake Essoe review The Leftovers Season 1, Episode 2, "Don't Be Ridiculous" on this week's Episode of The Harold & Maudecast.

If you think you've heard that song before, you're right. The opening credits to HBO's drama, The Leftovers, Season 3, Episode 2 is new, and old. It's the theme song to the 80s sitcom "Perfect Strangers" starring Bronson Pinchot and Mark Linn-Baker. Baker, the actor, has been a running gag throughout the series. In Season 1 we learn that all of the major cast members from Perfect Strangers departed. In Season 2 we find Mark Linn-Baker living in Chihuahua, Mexico. He faked his departure due to a severe case of survivors guilt. Now in Season 3, Baker is back with a crazy proposal for Nora. After getting a call from Baker telling her he can reunite her with her departed children, Nora travels to St Louis to meet with him in a hotel room. We don't quite no whether she's truly on behave of the Department of Sudden Departure, as she tells her boss, or if she really thinks this crazy quest is legit.

Episode 2 is heavily focused on Nora. We discover what happened to baby Lily when Nora pops in for an announced visit to her playground where mom Christine is shocked to see her. This episode also sets up the journey to Australia and in fact ends with a taste of what's to come there including a reunion with Kevin's father (Scott Glenn).

Look for; Erika's (Regina King) return, small but poignant performance by Brett Butler (Grace Under Fire) and the introduction of the mysterious Australian wrangler, Grace played by veteran Scottish actress Lindsay Duncan (BIRDMAN, UNDER THE TUSCAN SUN). High marks for writing and performances, as always. 8.8/10

The Leftovers Season 3 Premiere "The Book of Kevin" - Review

The Leftovers, HBO's Peabody Award winning drama returns April 16 for its third and final season with "The Book of Kevin." Sarah Mason and Jake Essoe of The Harold & Maudecast review and recap the episode.

It's been three years since the events in Miracle (Jardin) Texas. We find Kevin Garvey (Justin Theroux) back in his old uniform as the town's Chief of Police. His son Tommy (Chris Zylka), now deputized, is by his side and pretty handy with a firearm. Nora (Carrie Coon) has a new gig for the Department of the Departed. The gang is mostly all here with the notable exception of Erika (Regina King) who is expected to return for season 3. Her husband John (Kevin Carroll) is shacked up with Kevin's ex Laurie (Amy Brenneman) and running a palm reading scam out of their house together. Matt (Christopher Eccleston) is preaching to an overflowing congregation with wife Mary (Janel Moloney), now out of her coma, and son Noah by his side. It seems like all things are sunny and right in Miracle but, not so fast, this is The Leftovers.

We dive into the details of this somewhat subdued yet none the less brilliant premiere episode.

The Harold & Maudecast Ep 283 "Westworld Ho"

This week on The Harold & Maudecast we check in with Westworld, HBO's drama/western/sci-fi/action/thriller based on the Michael Crichton book and movie starring Yul Brynner. We review episode 7, Season 1, which has a big reveal, but will the show keep us hooked the likes of Stranger Things, hmmm. Take a listen.

Also this week two new Now Streaming on VOD reviews, THE NICE GUYS and THE LEGEND OF TARZAN. Both films were theatrically released in the Summer of 2016 to disappointing box office returns. THE NICE GUYS stars Ryan Gosling and Russel Crowe as private detectives who accidentally get tangled up in the same case. It's written and directed by Shane Black who knows a thing or two about Buddy action/comedies. He wrote the LETHAL WEAPON films and IRON MAN 3. THE LEGEND OF TARZAN stars Alexander Skarsgård (True Blood) in the title role and Margot Robbie as Jane (SUICIDE SQUAD), Samuel L Jackson (CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR) and Christoph Waltz (SPECTRE film) as the evil industrialist nemesis. Harry Potter fans will be enthusiastic to know that David Yates directed the film. He direct five of The Harry Potter films including the upcoming FANTASTIC BEASTS.

So, based on all that street cred, wouldn't ya think at least one of these is worth the watch? Well yes, one of them is. Listen to this episode of The Harold & Maudecast and you'll find out which one! hahaha sucked in. But it's worth it.
