Game of Thrones 3.07 "The Bear and the Maiden Fair" (Maester's Edition)A column article, Paranoid Video by: John Bender, Ryan Usher
No longer content to merely review Game of Thrones through the use of cumbersome blocks of text, John Bender and Ryan Usher have moved on to the internet airwaves, commandeering the Paranoid Video podcast feed for their own spoiler-y purposes.
SPOILERS FOLLOW. THIS CANNOT BE OVERSTATED. DO NOT LISTEN IF YOU HAVEN'T READ ALL OF THE BOOKS.
3.07 "The Bear and the Maiden Fair"
There's no getting around it: "The Bear and the Maiden Fair" was a clumsy, boring episode of TV. The George R. R.

It's no surprise, then, that the podcast about this episode is roughly the same experience. Although we struggle to stay on topic, we do find time to brainstorm creative, fashionable uses for REDACTED's fetus and REDACTED's foreskin. There's also mention of a fairly sophisticated theory about the seasons of Westeros at the 53-minute mark.
