Boars, Gore, and Swords is hosted by stand-up comedians Ivan Hernandez and Red Scott. In each episode they break down HBO's Game of Thrones and George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire. They also talk about movies, TV, science fiction, fantasy, and lots of other things. NSFW.
“Oathkeeper,” Season 4 Episode 4 of HBO’s Game of Thrones, is exposition-heavy after starting the season with three extremely action-packed episodes. Ivan and Red are joined by Scott Simpson of You Look Nice Today. They discuss unrealistic television sewers, Daenerys’s missed opportunity to sing “Don’t Cry For Me Argentina,” the sword fight version of “stop hitting yourself,” Jamie managing a Foot Locker, Olenna Tyrell walking leisurely through gardens, the moral purity of Hodor, Westerosi Algebra, and The Fortress of Solitude.
