Game of Thrones Season 3 Liveblog! Episode 10: Mhysa!

Ahoy!

You've made it back for another week of Game of Thrones. Quite frankly, we're a little bit surprised. Last week's episode was all kinds of disgusting, terrible, and sad. You're pretty silly returning for more. 

And yet, here you are, so let's watch some Game of Thrones.

Maybe your favourite character is still alive, and you feel a vested interest in the show. Good for you!

someone on the internet made this.

so, what other depravity to these sick fucks have in store for us this week?

What's up with those Lanniser folks?
How's that Khaleesi lady and her puppies, men?
Is Davos still reading?
Is Stannis still needlessly murdering leeches?
WTF is a Mhysa?

Hit the jump, and let's find out together!

Game of Thrones Season 3 Liveblog! Episode 8: Second Sons.

hey, everyone!  and welcome back, uh, us!
we had many intentions of being here with you all last week, but alas, we fell prey to the inevitable throes of toronto maple leafs fandom.

the terrifying lows, the soaring highs, the creamy middles!

but let us speak no more of that, lest our sportive hearts break yet again.  and frankly, after last night's doctor who series seven finale, we don't know how much more we can take.

thankfully, river song has appeared to remind us not to shed any spoilers until after the jump.
(link)

wikipedia's got a nice primer on the previous episode, but for those of you who'd prefer not to click away, here are a few points we enjoyed (or didn't?):
-Sansa Stark's heart-rending innocence: "Did your mother teach you that?"  oh, bless!  she really believes Margaery is a virgin.  that scene was pretty excellent, and made us love Margaery even more than we already did.
-that scene between Joffrey and Tywin was shot and directed beautifully.  very powerful to see these characters interact: neither wishes to concede any power, yet both must defer (to some varying degree) to the other.
-Melisandre and Gendry are in Blackwater Bay?  that's...different.  Seems like she won't be heading directly back to Dragonstone.  And she told him about his lineage!  What is she planning?
-Orell is boring and typical, and Ygritte dispatches him accordingly.  However, the windmill scene was adorable - love to see this character with her defenses dropped, no matter how fleeting!
-Robb Stark and Talisa's butts - simultaneously.  ALL the BUTTS.  Game of Butts.
-Arya was captured by the Hound!  More interactions between them immediately!  Please?
-I don't really want to talk about Theon's sexual assault and subsequent castration.  Wait, whoops.
-Daenerys is becoming a more impressive leader by the minute, it seems.  And the dragons look dooooope.
-The rescue of Brienne by Jaime was by far one of the best parts of this episode - but to be honest, we were pretty uncomfortable with the fact that they used a real bear.  This is a show that destroyed whole ecosystems in Malta; I wouldn't imagine that humane treatment of animals is a high priority.

(link)

but enough of that!  what's going to happen tonight?

-the episode's title implies it could be heavy on the Tyrion and Bran (plus Rickon, i guess) storylines.  are we missing anyone?
-how will this first of many weddings to come play out?
-will today's nudity be gratuitous - and if so, will it be somewhat even-handed?
-will we be beset by yet more torture scenes, likely starring Alfie Allen and his torturer (whom we've mistakenly named many times, not realizing it was meant to be a secret)?
-what's next for Daenerys and her mission to free the slaves of Essos?  perhaps...a distraction?
-and what about spoiler?  Spoiler spoiler spoiler!

let's hit the jump and see if we can't learn the answer to some of these questions together.

Six Seasons and (...pretty much) a Movie - Community Season 4 Finale Liveblog!

Hey there!
Thanks for stopping by!

seriously. thanks.


Today we're going to be sitting down for a humorous (and potentially somber affair.)

Welcome to our second Community Season Finale liveblog.

We're hoping this isn't a series finale, but many signs are point to the opposite, so pull up a chair and join us for one more study session around the magical table.

maybe not?


How did the writers cope with writing what is (another) potential final episode?
What sort of storylines can we expect to be tied up?
Are we going to see any of the various relationships teased actually come to fruition? (for one episode?)
What ever happened with that air conditioning school anyway?
Evil Abed, is that dude going to show up?

Nobody really knows, yet...y'know, unless there are spoilers and you've read them.

For the rest of you non-knowing folks, hit the jump and we'll find it all out together.

Game of Thrones Season 3 Liveblog! Episode 6: The Climb

Hey again!

Summer's just around the corner here, but in the lands of Westoros, winter is far nearer!
What's this week's episode, "The Climb" going to have in store for us?

i uhh, i know sometimes we put in song references having to do with the episode titles, etcetera...
But as far as i can make out, it's a pretty popular Miley Cyrus song. We're not showing you that.

But hey - it's a book apparently! About climbing Mount Everest, so, uhhh, there's that!

shhh. don't worry about it. just pretend it's the wall or something


Anyway, what's going on this week?

How's are the Lannister siblings (most notably Tyrion and Cersei) going to cope with their new directions and roles in King's Landing?
What will happen with Daenerys and her Unsullied? (Go Team Grey Worm!)
Will any one of Littlefinger, The Hound, Tywin, or Stannis do something creepy and untoward?
Will Jon Snow have his guts pulled out through his nose?
How will Arya cope with the loss of Gendry, and her m'lady-zoning?

potentially violently?

Hit the jump, and let's talk about it!
