Ep.41: Game of Thrones - 806 - Instacast
Game of Thrones' series finale, "The Iron Throne," felt like two episodes wrapped in one. Maybe even two TV shows wrapped in one. There was the somber, sobering examination of absolute power corrupting absolutely, and there was the saccharine sweet series of farewells to our favorite characters that prevents a civil war.

Ep.40: Game of Thrones - 805 - The Small Council
It's Daenerys Day on the Shat on TV Small Council. This week's "Game of Thrones" listeners rained down fiery emails and voicemails about the massacre at King's Landing and how it might all be Jon Snow's fault. Your messages were pretty evenly split on whether you loved or hated Season 8, Episode 5 "The Bells," and we snagged a strong sampling of each for this extended-length podcast.

Ep.39: Game of Thrones - 805 - The Bells
"The Bells" should have been the triumphant climax for "Game of Thrones." It was the battle we all were waiting for. The good guys finally made it to King's Landing, and justice would be done. But "Game of Thrones" Season 8, Episode 5 gave fans something different: a look at the horrors of war, the power of legacy, and the unsatisfying ends to some of our favorite characters.

Ep.38: Game of Thrones - 805 - Instacast
Game of Thrones' penultimate episode, "The Bells," was either one of the coolest things you've ever seen or a sure sign that HBO has completely lost control of George R.R. Martin's incomparable realm.  Old scores were settled, true natures were revealed, and the entire CGI budget was spent. Gene Lyons loved it. Dick Ebert threw his hands up in frustration. And meme makers had a field day. Catch the Instacast now, then tell us what you think at hosts@shatontv.com.

Ep.37: Game of Thrones - 804 - The Small Council
Season 8 Episode 4 gave us a standoff between Cersei and Daenerys, a farewell between Jon Snow and Ghost, a funeral for the fallen, and whispers between Tyrion and Varys. But "The Last of The Starks" listener mail mostly was about one thing: How the hell is the North so bad at everything? Hear other viewers' takes on the new Scorpion design, whether King's Landing will fall, Jaime's and Brienne's romance, female disempowerment, and who ultimately will sit on the Iron Throne.

Ep.36: Game of Thrones - 804 - The Last of The Starks
"The Last of The Starks," brought back the political struggles, shocking developments, and complex conversations of earlier seasons without losing the massive scale and sprawling tales of Season 8. Episode 4's breakneck race to the "Game of Thrones" finish line might seem like sloppy writing and impatience, but Gene and Dick believe there's a method to the madness. Hear about that as we weigh the strengths and weaknesses of the two remaining factions: Team Cersei and Team Daenerys.

Ep.35: Game of Thrones - 804 - Instacast
"The Last of The Starks" mixed Game of Thrones Season 8's huge scale and intimate conversation with something we haven't seen in a while: cutthroat political jockeying and deep questions of identity. What does family mean? Who is best to take the throne? At what point does savior become tyrant? When did the show turn into Scorpion City? Find out what drinking games taught us, why Sansa told Tyrion the secret that's not really a secret anymore, and who's where on the map as we head into Episode 5.

Ep.34: Game of Thrones - 803 - The Small Council
Listener mail and voicemail about Episode 3 of Game of Thrones Season 8, "The Long Night" "The Long Night" didn't mark the end of mankind, and it didn't kill half the cast, but this 82-minute TV milestone whisked us from fear, to hope, to dread, to triumph. Was it Game of Thrones' crowning achievement or a sign HBO has lost its nerve? Listeners wrote in and called in to argue both sides.

Ep.33: Game of Thrones - 803 - The Long Night
"The Long Night," Game of Thrones' third episode of Season 8, delivered the longest battle scene ever filmed and forever changed the landscape of Westeros. And for every fan of the action, there was an equal fan asking important questions about convenience, strategy, and faithfulness to the world of George R.R. Martin created. Dick Ebert uses his combat engineer experience to compare Jon Snow's military tactics to the U.S. Army Field Manual recommendations.

Ep.32: Game of Thrones - 803 - Instacast
We survived the Battle of Winterfell ... well, most of us. As flames illuminated the darkness, we cheered. As heroes turned to one another for help, we cried. "The Long Night" was dynamic, exciting, dizzying, and maybe a touch too convenient.  "Game of Thrones" Season 8 Episode 3 shifted effortlessly from action, to drama, to horror, to parable. Hear our immediate thoughts while we prepare for Tuesday's Deep Dive. VALAR DOHAERIS!

Ep.30: Game of Thrones - 802 - A Knight of The Seven Kingdoms
"A Knight of The Seven Kingdoms," Game of Thrones' second episode of Season 8, mastered the herculean feat of bringing all our favorite characters together inside Winterfell's walls and reminding us how much we have invested in the battle to come.  Along the way, Episode 2 gave us laughs, heartfelt moments, and one particularly steamy scene. This intersection of all the lives still living beautifully illustrated just who our on-screen friends had become over 8 seasons.

Ep.29: Game of Thrones - 802 - Instacast
Two episodes and no major battles? No major deaths? It's true, and it's glorious. "Game of Thrones" is playing the long game on a short season, showing that HBO has grown and evolved to always show the audience something better than they knew they wanted. Season 8 Episode 2 made us throw away our notebooks and just feel along with these characters, reminding us of how much we've grown to love them over the years and how much their wholesale deaths are going to hurt.

Ep.27: Game of Thrones - 801 - Winterfell
If you thought "Winterfell" was a slow start to Game of Thrones Season 8, you weren't paying attention. Between the emotional reunions and Alladin-esque dragon dates, HBO's flagship series outlined all the alliances forming as the living make their last stand. And how each alliance might fail. Episode 1 also gave glimpses of how the good guys can win. We'll outline the secret weapons, powerful assets, and key strategies Jon Snow and Co. will need to survive against staggering odds.
