Justice is sweet – Cast in the Darkness Episode 13: Just Desserts

Hello Night’s Watchmen and welcome back to another (albeit late) episode of the Cast in the Darkness Podcast!


Kristina and I gather around our Television for Episode 2 of the latest Game of Thrones Season: The Lion and The Rose… Listen to what we think about this murder most vile, and what we think about spoilers in general in CitD Episode 13: Just Desserts!





#GAMEOFTHRONES STARTED AGAIN! And we have a podcast about it!

Hello Night’s Watchmen!  You thought I forgot about you, didn’t you?




Fear not, my noble companions, for I was simply waiting until I had something to offer in exchange for your views and your clicks.  And something great do I have!


Episode 12 of The Cast in the Darkness podcast is all about the Season 4 Premiere, “Two Swords”.  Kristina and I sit down for a lovely viewing of the show (actually a couple), and we make note of some great lines, and some even greater moment of growth among these characters we all know and love.


I hope you all check out the newest episode, and check out the archives to see if you’ve missed anything awesome!


Until next time, may your pies be made of pigeon and your cakes be made of lemon!

#Gameofthrones LCG: Store Championship 2014 – Round 2, Nick versus Jeff

Hello there Night’s Watchmen and welcome back to the Cast in the Darkness!


I’ve got the second of two Round 2 videos here for everyone to enjoy – this one features Nick with his Targaryen 222 deck facing off against Jeff’s Lannister No Agenda Turbo-Kneel!


You can see this one is pretty back and forth most of the way through this 10 turn slog!



I’ll be back next time with the first video from round three of this series – Baratheon 222 faces off against a Siege of Winterfell deck!


And coming up soon I’ll have the Chapter Pack review for the Spoils of War pack that was released last week.


And finally – Game of Thrones starts tonight!  Kristina and I will be watching it and we will make sure to have our thoughts on the episode up on the podcast server tomorrow night!


That’s all from up here on the Wall.  Until next time remember, the night is dark and full of terrors.

#GameofThrones Trailer Number 3!


I think it mostly speaks for itself.  I’m sure many of you have seen this already, but I thought I would put it up just in case some weren’t watching HBO Sunday night!

This weekend is the big Game of Thrones tournament in Moncton, so all of my time is going into prepping for that.  I’ll have a post coming up soon though!

Until next time, never climb.  Just never climb.

HBO Releases Game of Thrones Season Four Trailer!

Let’s just get this out of the way first, so we don’t accidentally bury the lead.


There are just so many things that we can say about this: from the shadow of the dragon soaring above the red keep, to the champion of Mereen charging headlong towards Daario Naharis.  From Tyrion in shackles to Jaime being fitted for his golden hand (with short brown hair, wtf?!)…

There are so many moments in this trailer that mesmerize, but my initial impression is that the greatest among these is Oberyn Martell talking to Tyrion Lannister “Tell your father I am here, and that Lannisters are not the only ones who pay their debts.”  In that moment, I feel all doubt about Pedro Pascal was wiped away and only excitement remained.

Cersei shows exactly how bad she is at being her father, while Joffrey sneers over his new bride – doing a very good job of not giving us any indication of that thing we all know is coming.

Of course there are so many more tiny moments (I never even touched on the Melisandre or Night’s Watch moments in the Trailer) that I could go on for hours about this tiny, two-minute clip.  Suffice it to say… my excitement has really been raised by this  trailer!

How did you react to the trailer?  Are you as excited for season four of Game of Thrones as I am?  Let us know in the comments; or email us at castinthedarkness at gmail dot com, or tweet at @castinthedark using the hastag #CitDTrailer and who knows.  maybe this post itself is merely a preview some something bigger yet to come!

Cast in the Darkness Podcast – Episode 2 “Welcome to Murica!”

Good morning Night’s Watchmen!

Some of you might already know, but Episode 2 of the podcast dropped last night, and I think this one is a doozy!  We are joined by Kristina in order to break down Episode 1 of HBO’s Game of Thrones TV show.

For those of you who are invested in this sort of thing: This episode is SPOILER FREE!

Please check it out on the Podcasts page, and you can view the show notes on the episode page (forthcoming)!

I know there was no Games of Thrones entry this weekend, I’m having a hell of a time figuring out how to get the video and audio combined in a sensible manner… hopefully I’ll be able to figure that out this week without the podcast sitting on my computer as well.

That’s all for now folks, stay tuned for more awesome content forthcoming!
