The Finale of Game of Thrones aired this past Sunday, resulting in a mixture of emotions and opinions across the Internet.  With more than 50% left unsatisfied with the direction of Season 8, and the impact Game of Thrones has on everybody's Backlogs, we felt it was appropriate to give the show a proper sendoff. Jerry Beharry returns to provide insight as a non-book reader, while Kevin's brother-in-law Frank Seitz and brother Jeremy Lane provide deep insight as "multiple time book readers".  Kevin hosts the show, navigating between different topics such as the controversy behind Season 8's pacing and the  writers moving to Disney to work on 3 Star Wars films.  If you watched Game of Thrones, you wont want to miss this wrap up from a group of fans with different takes on the topic.  Enjoy.--- Send in a voice message: this podcast:

This is a unique episode, but we think you're going to have fun with this one.  We have obtained a Spy. The Partisan Spy to be exact.  We know nothing about him other than that he doesn't want to be known, and he wants to revolutionize the Game Review space.  He's well on his way and we're here to help him as we have joined forces to give him a platform.  In this episode, Kevin and Joe try to get as much out of the Spy as they can as they learn with the Audience just what he's all about.Headphone Alert - the Spy's got a Voice Changer!Check out The Partisan Spy's game reviews by visiting: Send in a voice message: this podcast:

Every once in a while we like to dedicate entire episodes of the Backlog Podcast to other topics important to us and our listeners - so Episode 51 is dedicated to the newest Tag Team on Monday Night RAW, the Viking Raiders - otherwise known as The Viking Experience - otherwise known as The War Raiders - otherwise known as War Machine.After Hanson and Rowe, current NXT Tag Team Champions,  arrived on RAW, fans were stunned to find out Vince McMahon changed their name at the last instant - first calling them the Berzerkers (ala the Jobber from years ago), and then settling on The Viking Experience - Ivar and Erick.  As someone who knows Todd (Hanson/Ivar) personally, this was a shock. The resulting meme and exposure turned into something more, and just before Raw on 4/22, their names changed again.  All we know is that their name doesn't matter - the job they do in the ring does.  Sorry for the delay, but enjoy this take on the name change and what's in store for the Viking Raiders.--- Send in a voice message: this podcast:
There isn't much to say, other than Thank You.  50 Episodes in and we're just getting started.  Joe and Kevin tackle the status of the Podcast, think back to some fond memories over the past 50 episodes, and talk about some things to come.  Also, it wouldn't be a good reminiscing of old Backlog  Podcast episodes without a few audio glitches in the mix.  Sorry for Kevin's feed, there was some rabbits chewing his microphone cable.  It'll be fixed next episode!--- Send in a voice message: this podcast:
