We may as well nail our colours to the mast straight away with this one.. we liked it. Sure, there were a few issues with how we got to this point, which meant one or two of the character moments may have not quite been what they could have been, but take a step back and leave your predictions at the door and this is one pretty awesome episode of television. We explain why we liked it while re-living some of the most controversial moments of the series. We also round the cast off with your feedback and our new fan theory for how Bronze Yohn Royce is now destined for the Iron Throne.

Matt and Dave talk you through the biggest battle yet on Game of Thrones, an episode that ended up somewhere between a thrilling rollercoaster ride and a loud, confusing trundle through a ghost train. We loved so much about this episode - the Dothraki charge, the Unsullied last stand, Beric and Jorah's ends and Arya's injury time winner. We had problems with how dark some of it was, how so many of our beloved characters improbably survived and.. most important of all.. where in the seven hells was zombie Bronze Yohn and his beautiful breastplate? Oh, and pour one out for fan favourite Qhono. We literally barely knew ye.

We’re getting our Song of Ice and Fire fix from the TV, and this week, it’s episode 2 of the final series of Game of Thrones: A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms. It’s a tense one, and perhaps the most unsettling thing is that an awful lot of characters have suspiciously complete character arcs. Grey Worm is even talking about how he’s one last job from retirement. It’s all set-up, and it’s all rich stuff - let us know what you thought of it @sharkliveroil on Twitter and email@example.com. And remember: when you play the Game of Thrones, you win, or you get eaten by the malevolently resurrected wight of your former loved ones. See you next week!
We're covering the final season of Game of Thrones. Yes, this is supposed to be a books podcast but we're sick of waiting for George to finish his writing so we're turning to television for closure. We'll bring you a week by week recap of every episode. But wait! There's more! This week we have a special bonus section at the end where we predict what's going to happen to each character. We'll keep track of their progress every week. Spoiler free - although we have read the books so we do go into a bit of extra background.
If you have your own predictions for your favourite characters or thoughts on the episode that you'd like to share, send your feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org and find us on twitter @sharkliveroil
It's the third in Shark Liver Oil's "Three Game Of Thrones Podcasts In A Week" Trilogy. And it's the Season 7 grand finale! It's got it all: an all-star political royal rumble, a switcheroo to end all switcheroos that does for Littlefinger, graphic incest on a boat and a wight in a box. Oh, and the wall comes crashing down. Don't forget that. Never forget that.

Apparently THAT REALLY IS THE PLAN, and we're here in the second part of our three-part run to the end of the series to witness it, in all its icy, firey, PROFOUNDLY QUESTIONABLE glory! Romp with us through Winterfell, as a sibling rivalry threatens to give Dave a stress headache! Zip with us the length of an entire continent in the twinkling of an eye on (apparently) Westeros' own version of the hyperloop! And of course, wander with us through the frozen north in the hope that capturing a wight turns out to be a good idea for some reason! It's Shark Liver Oil! It's Game of Thrones! HERE ARE YOUR DRAGONS!
Hold onto your butts as the first of our TRIPLE THREAT podcast makes it's way into your feed. After the crazy shenanigans of the Loot Train battle, we were all ready for a barn burner of a battle at Eastwatch this week. Sadly that wasn't to be, but we still had the burning of Tarly and Son, the return of the Rower That Was Promised and the start of probably the most ridiculous plan in the history of Game of Thrones as our heroes decide to take a jaunt north of the wall to bag themselves a zombie. Will it be All Wight On The Night?
Keep a look out for episodes 6 and 7, dropping into your feed later this week.
Usual place for feedback: firstname.lastname@example.org or @sharkliveroil on twitter.
What's this? A second podcast in as many hours? You bet your ass it is! Shark Liver Oil comes roaring back up to date with The Spoils Of War! The last ten minutes of this weeks eposide was so balls to the wall oustanding that we just had to get this podcast out. So buckle up for our take on the biggest battle yet! Hardhome? Don't make me laugh, most of those guys were already dead. Blackwater? That's just a starter. Battle of the Bastards? Go eat at the kids table. All aboard the Loot Train!
Some other things happen in this episode too - and we talk about them also.

Better late than never, here's our take on Game of Thrones S7E3, the Queen's Juuuuuustice! An Ironborn captain delivers some hypocritical sass, the Queen of Thorns goes out on a high, we see the probable end of Ellaria Sand (extramarital sex) and Euron Greyjoy just continues to love life. Oh, and the unsullied hit Casterly Rock with a one punch takedown- KO!!
As ever we'd love to hear your feedback on the show or the podcast: firstname.lastname@example.org or @sharkliveroil on twitter. You can also find us on Facebook so why not give us a like. We'd like that.
Guess who's back? Back again? Game of Thrones. Still no book. But never fear, Shark Liver Oil is back for season 7 of the TV series. In this episode we wonder about the real reason behind Dolorous Edd welcoming Bran to Castle Black, what is Randyll Tarly's real name and what's really being kept under wraps in the forbidden section of the citidel library? Send your feedback to sharkliveroilpodcastgmail.com or find us on twitter @sharkliveroil and facebook! Yes Facebook! I can't believe it either.
It's the final wrap cast of a long series on Game of Thrones Season 6. We reflect on what was almost certainly the best opening 20 mins of the entire series and probably the best overall episode of the whole series. Big talk? Of course. But when you've got a body count this big, anything less than big talk just isn't big enough. Or something.
We recap the madcap chase through Braavos, the epic Mountain-Smash, the surrender of Riverrun, the Hound's Re-Education through violence and much much more! We've got more plot than a conveniently placed Lannister guardsman! As ever get your feedback into us at email@example.com and be sure to listen after the music if you want to hear a special preview of next week's Game Of Thrones episode..
It's our review of episode 7 of season 6 of Game of Thrones - featuring miraculous resurrections, and not at all surprising massacres, and possibly the truest description of Game of Thrones yet (coming, surprisingly enough, from a crime-solving antiques dealer with a twinkle in his eye). With an extra bonus: the continued shelling of Matt's Bunker Full of Spoilers, and the real possibility that Dave is one failed plot-twist away from going full-on Hulk Smash.
We shout a hearty "welcome back!" to some long lost characters in this episode with Benjen Stark, Edmure Tully and Walder Frey all making a return. We also discuss Arya's sudden attack of conscience and Mace Tyrell's horsemanship (which is even worse than his speech delivery). Cool Benjen and Who Aaaaariou are the topics of conversation in Matts Bunker Full Of Spoilers at the end of the show, and we also read out some of your feedback including a Gator Update and an offer to spend 7 million US dollars opening a new orphanage.

WARNING. HERE BE SPOILERS. We're continuing our romp through Westeros, sating our plot-cravings by watching Game of Thrones Season 6 Episode 5 - The Door. And here we are, meeting super-weapons, more of Sansa Stark's poor life choices, and the surprising ineffectiveness of a cup of Horlicks at preventing a zombie from eating your face and taking over your world. Featuring our special, long-awaited foray into Matt's Bunker Full of Spoilers, including your favourites so far and a theory rejoicing in the name of Horny Tywin, and, finally, the Dom Perignon of Questionable Fan Theories: Varys Is A Mermaid. Can Matt make a believer out of Dave? Probably not.
As ever, get in your theories, ideas, outrage, incredulity and excitement in to email@example.com or @sharkliveroil on Twitter.
Beware! Spoilers! We discuss episode 4 of Game Of Thrones Season 6 from the perspective of two guys who have read all the Game of Thrones Books. In this episode we talk about the high rollin rock star lifestyle of a luxury shoe maker an the possibility of Ramsay Bolton being crushed by a falling apple tree. At 1:01:15 we move on to talk about one of the big fan theories surrounding the show and books - the dreaded R Plus L Equals J.
