Our main goal has always been to talk about gaming here at KeenandGraev.com, but we’re interested in hearing what you, our readers, think about our idea of adding the occasional blog posts about TV and Movies.
These blog entries would be tailored specifically to our interests and hopefully match yours as well.Â We would not talk about shows like The Daily Show, Bones, or NCIS (all great shows), but rather shows like Merlin, Robin Hood, Psych (maybe?), and movies like The Hobbit or Lord of the Rings.Â These shows/movies interest us enough that Graev and I speak about them on a regular basis – as we do with gaming.Â An example of the type of commentary you can expect would be similar to the following snippet:
Last week’s episode of Merlin was titled “Excalibur”, yet it never once mentioned the sword’s name.Â Â Merlin is told by the Great Dragon to take the sword (supposedly Excalibur)Â far from Camelot, so he takes it to the lake in the Royal Woods from episode 7 “The Games of Avalon”.Â At first we thought he was going to take it out and place it into a stone, but throwing it into the lake (where no mortal man may go) does set the series up for the Lady of the Lake to reintroduce the sword sometime later when Arthur is king. …. The series is really starting to take off now that Uther’s past is starting to unfold.Â For the first time we felt that sense of attachment and excitement.Â The series is finally getting some story arcs that will last longer than an episode or two and that’s what keeps us wanting more.Â …
Our hope is that we can discuss episodes of shows or movies that a few of you might be interested in and maybe strike up interesting conversation and a group of loyal followers wanting to share their thoughts and ideas like we’ve been able to do with gaming.
If the idea interests you, repulses you, or you find yourself not caring at all please let us know.
