10 Years of the Iron Throne

Disclaimer: The Fandads were provided with products in exchange for promoting The Game of Thrones merchandise from The Nobel Collection. All thoughts, opinions, and future visions from the Three-Eyed Raven are our own. 


I will admit I was late to the Game of Thrones bandwagon. Working in a book store for X amount of years I remember customers telling me about the series and saying I would enjoy it. With all of the books I already had on my reading list, I did not know when I would get to them. Let's just say I never got to those books. Fast forward to April 17, 2011, and Game of Thrones premiered on HBO and the rest, as they say, is history.

Relive the adventures in The Legend of Korra The Complete Series Blu-ray Collection

Disclaimer: The Fandads were provided with a review copy of The Legend of Korra: The Complete Series in exchange for a review. All thoughts, opinions, and wishes to be a "Bender" are our own. 



The Legend of Korra was a series that I did not initially see when it aired. I remember seeing images of the characters here and there but I did not sit down and watch the series. Being home a lot during the pandemic I started watching shows on streaming services that I have never seen and one of them was The Legend of Korra. Let me tell you something from the first episode I was hooked.

We are lucky to review a lot of family movies on Fandads and as much as we love watching the same animated animals over and over sometimes we want something that doesn't have a singing/talking animal. Luckily, our friends over at Universal Pictures sent us a review copy of Promising Young Woman and it was amazing.

Enjoying a Starry Winter Night with Van Gogh

Disclaimer: The Fandads were invited to the Media Night to cover the Immersive Van Gogh Exhibit Chicago. All thoughts, opinions, and fantastic time are our own. 


Last night I was able to attend the Media Event for the new Immersive Van Gogh Exhibit Chicago.  I have been seeing the ads all week on television and on social media, and I was very excited to attend. On the drive there I was thinking about how the experience will be and what works of Van Gogh I will see come to life. I felt that I was building up my expectations too high, and when I arrived at the event and enveloped myself in the work, I was not disappointed.

Late last year we were able to view The Croods: A New Age from home and we enjoyed it.

With the Digital release available today we can not wait to go back and also see what cool new behind the scene features are available.

If you are a frequent reader of our site, you know that we are fans of Paw Patrol. Not only are we fans of the show but also fans or the theme song. That song gets us excited and we can not wait to see what adventures the crew would get into. (Parents, if you have a workout playlist, you need to add that song.) Every episode has a great lesson and they are a lot of fun to watch.

Disclaimer: The Fandads received an advance review copy of SpongeBob Squarepants Season 12 in exchange for a review and giveaway. All thoughts, opinions, and use of "IMAGINATION" are our own. 


SpongeBob Squarepants has become a weekend staple in our household on Saturdays. My son and I watch a few episodes together before getting on with whatever errands need to be done for the day. I used to watch SpongeBob before kids and now I watch it with my kids. It's pretty cool how these things happen.
