DVD Review: Get Your Game of Thrones Fix: Season 5 Blu-Ray

Game of ThronesGame of Thrones: The Complete Fifth Season is a great addition to your Blu-Ray collection, nicely packaged with solid bonus features that will please hardcore George R.R. Martin fans as well as viewers familiar only with the HBO series. The four-disc set includes all ten episodes of the season, which won a record twelve Primetime Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Drama Series.

Five years into the series, Game of Thrones’ complex storytelling defies quick synopsis. Throughout the season, Danaerys Targaryen struggles to lead Meereen and subdue the insurgent Sons of the Harpy, finally crossing paths with Tyrion Lannister. Meanwhile, Cersei Lannister also struggles to retain power in King’s Landing, but she underestimates the power of the High Sparrow. Littlefinger weds Sansa Stark to Ramsay Bolton, the worst sadist in all of Westeros, and Stannis’ devotion to the Lord of Light costs him everything. At the Wall, Jon Snow is elected Lord Commander of the Night's Watch and forms an alliance with the Wildlings, with disastrous results.

The X-Files - Mulder & Scully Meet the Were-monster - 10.03 - Post Mortem

The X-FilesI've already posted a spoiler-free review of the episode, but now that it's aired I wanted to include some more specific thoughts before moving onto the full recap below, which includes quotes.

The X-Files
delivers a classic in this week’s comedic episode. Whether you're a diehard fan of The X-Files or not, episode three, "Mulder & Scully Meet the Were-monster," should delight you. It's one of the trademark quirky, funny episodes. Even better, if you are a fan, you'll love it for all the references/injokes to previous moments on the show.

Darin Morgan did an excellent job with the script. Scully says it perfectly in the episode, “Oh yeah, this is how I like my Mulder.” The episode truly feels like it could fit somewhere into the old series (minus the technology jokes, which were so funny), as the show hits its stride again, making the episode an instant classic.

The episode focuses on a man-sized lizard, who after being bit by a man, turns into a human. The were-lizard is brilliantly played by guest star Rhys Darby.

Kumail Nanjiani, who guest stars as Pasha, is also very funny in the episode, especially when he is acting alongside David Duchovny.

Advance Review: The X-Files Delivers a Classic Dose of Quirky Comedy

The X-FilesThis Monday The X-Files takes a comedic turn as “Mulder & Scully Meet the Were-monster.” The duo is called in to investigate what may be a serial killer, an animal attack, or something else altogether when witnesses claim they saw a monster.

The episode, written brilliantly by Darin Morgan, is a step back into the quirky and silly episodes of the original. The series was always able to poke fun of itself in the best ways. The episode is not only a throwback to the original series as it is filled with references and injokes, but an excellent story in its own right.

The X-Files - Founder's Mutation - Post Mortem

The X-FilesFollowing the review is a very detailed recap of the episode, including quotes.

The X-Fies returns with a monster-of-the-week for it's second episode of the season. This episode, which is about eugenics and psychokinesis, fits into the classically creepy episodes that the show is known for. That being said, it does bring in some connections with the mythology, which I appreciated, such as talking about alien-human hybrids, and of course the discussion of William.

There were a lot of good moments in the episode. One that sticks out is Skinner helping the agents out, telling them that it will take awhile to close out the case, basically giving them more time before the DOD will put a stop to their investigation.
