We are back from our summer break and what better way to shake off the cobwebs than an in-studio chat with Mark the Encaffeinated One?! Mark steadfastly avoided all spoilers during the biggest reveals of Game of Thrones, Season 6, watching the last installment of the HBO epic on his own terms. Ser Strong-willed!

This week, we take a look back at the episodes that have laid the foundation for the inevitable end, which will be upon us in just 13 episodes. Sure we have time – “Winter” isn’t coming until at least Summer of 2017, but how are they going to do answer all of our questions in just 13 all-too-short hours of programming?!

Tune in to CHSR 97.9 FM (or online at chsrfm.ca) Sunday, August 23rd at 9PM Atlantic / 8PM Eastern as we bid a final “farewell for now” to Game of Thrones and reluctantly settle in for the long wait for more…

Episode 018 – Fear the Walking Dead Mid-Season Finale

On this week’s episode we’ll be taking a closer look at the “Fear The Walking Dead” mid-season finale. Is there something in the water in Baja or has everyone just lost their minds?! The group has fractured in more ways than one, but we’ll have to wait until August 21st to find out just how much damage has been done.

We’ll also talk about the new “Star Trek: Beyond” trailer as well as some exciting news from the folks behind the upcoming fan-film “Star Trek Axanar”. The production had been halted due to copyright litigation brought forward by Paramount Pictures, but a “high-profile intervention” may have just cleared the path for Axanar to boldly go forward!

And finally, we’re proud to announce that starting June 14th, “Speaking of Thrones” will  be carried by CHSR 97.9FM on Tuesdays at 6:30PM (Atlantic)! If you haven’t had a chance to check it out yet, don’t worry! We’ll be playing Episode 005 on the second half of Sunday night’s show as a preview of what’s coming next month to CHSR.

But that’s not all! Get ready for “Speaking of the Dead”! Our “Fear The Walking Dead” and “The Walking Dead” companion piece will replace “Speaking of Thrones” on Tuesdays, starting August 23rd, and will continue until we switch back into Thrones gear in April 2017!

We hope you’ll to tune in to CHSR 97.9 FM (online at chsrfm.ca) Sunday, May 29th at 9PM (8PM ET) for an all new episode of “The Recap Sequence”!

The Recap Sequence

If you don’t know why the Twitterverse is afire with #holdthedoor” references today, you missed last night’s “Game of Thrones” on HBO — but more on that later. This week’s installment of the sweeping fantasy drama based on George R.R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” novels contained a number of heavy revelations for fans.

The fast-paced episode opened with a steely Sansa (Sophie Turner, “The Thirteenth Tale”) berating Petyr Baelish (Aiden Gillen, “The Dark Knight Rises,” 2012) for leaving her with the Boltons, asking him if he knew about Ramsay (Iwan Rheon, “Misfits”). “If you didn’t, you’re an idiot,” she said. “If you did, you’re my enemy.” Petyr seemed convincingly remorseful, and when Sansa cast him away, he offered her a hopefully reliable tip about her Uncle Brynden Tulley taking back Riverrun.

The Recap Sequence

Love them or hate them, there’s nothing like a family reunion, and “Game of Thrones’” fourth episode of season 6 kicked off with a doozy last night. Fans cried a collective “yes!” as Sansa (Sophie Turner, “The Thirteenth Tale”) and Jon (Kit Harington, “Pompeii,” 2014) were reunited at Castle Black. The reunion was that much sweeter when Sansa showed her true Stark colours and insisted she and Jon return to Winterfell to take back their home from Ramsay (Iwan Rheon, “Misfits”), aka the new “Lord of the North.” Her turn from damsel in distress to instigator made her one of many strong females in the action-packed episode, undoubtedly the best of the season so far.
