TV Analysis: Is “Game of Thrones” emotionally manipulative?
The return of the highly successful HBO phenomenon was generously accompanied by the assurance of a 5th and 6th season. “Game of Thrones” can be called the greatest fantasy show to ever land on television, a medium infamous for staying within the confounds of crime and courtroom dramas.
Last year many fans who hadn’t yet dove into the critically accalimed source material were shocked, dismayed, and some even became Youtube stars. This particular episode “The Rains of Castamere” allowed publications to throw around one of their favorite words: “controversy.”

TV Analysis: Is the “How I Met Your Mother” ending inexcusable?
After nine long seasons, “How I Met Your Mother” has inevitably found its ending and many fans aren’t satisfied. There are also fans defending the series finale. Vulture was able to put together this impressive list of critics who were torn between loving and hating the finale.
Could there have been a more satisfactory ending? Especially considering that the ending was planned (the scene with the kids was shot a long time ago) ahead of time?

Nintendo’s transition to three-dimensional gaming was seamless. Releasing hit after hit for the Nintendo 64. Including the highly regarded, greatest video game of all time – “The Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time.”
