SPOILER Does anyone else panic a little/feel sad because we are losing Joffrey soon? He is a twat, but he is so entertaining to watch. Jack Gleeson has done a hell of a job over the past three years. A magnificent performance all the way END OF SPOILER
*inhuman fangirl noises intensify*:
Well, actually it's about 2 months until this particular moment to happen on the show and for me to explode, but what the hell.
If I'm not on twitter before/after the premiere airs it means I died. Or
I am laying on the ground laughing manically and punching the air
because Thrones is finally back.
Also if at any point this season Stannis beheads something with his sword, while riding on a horse, my chance of survival drops to zero. I live in constant fear they will rob me of him kicking ass this season. Please don't do that. I ask for so little. Do not substitute that awesomeness for some sappy melodrama DO. NOT. DO. THAT. I'm a very forgiving person - no, that's a lie - I'm a very forgiving person for GoT writers but if they deprive me of Stannis kicking ass I'm gonna bitch about it as long as I've bitched about Mhysa ending scene. It's been 10 months. I still bitch about it. Don't get me started on what happens if they mess up the epilogue.
These sadistic bastards are doing the hiatus for Memorial Day again this year. Before episode 8. I'm not gonna say why it's particularly cruel, but book readers know why. I can barely keep it together from Monday to Sunday when Thrones is actually on. They take it away for two weeks? Nightmare.
This is awesome. Even the people who don't watch the show should see it:
"Peter Dinklage will get every good dwarf role until he dies...or Warwick Davis kills him"- I seriously cried from laughing. Although fuck off at the Stannis bit. I'd hit that. Hard.
Finn Jones's unicorn obsession - which I do believe is a side effect of him taking some sort of drugs I'd love to take - is freaking hilarious.
Pedro Pascal is best friends with Sarah Paulson and they are both adorable:
Here you can listen to the preview of The Rains of Castamere by Sigur Ros. The band plays the musicians on Joffrey's wedding in episode 2 and I bet their rendition is the ending credits music.
Rumor has it Cersei/Jaime sex scene from episode 3 is even more gross than in the books....how is that even possible?!
We are also getting Ramsay's huntin first three episodes. Yeah, I can hear your joy from here.
Ladies and gentlemen, misery porn:
Team Dragonstoneis dark...and full of grumpiness. This is an actual promo image from the second episode and these are the looks on Stannis and Davos' faces as Melisande is burning people alive around them. As I look at that picture I can actually imagine Davos say frantically in his head 'Your Grace...NO!' as Stannis is brooding sexily with confused "what is happening right now and whatever it is what the fuck am I doing this for?" look on his face. I think his crazy wife (the baby jars lady, remember, guys?) is in the scene too so that explains the extra amount of unhappiness. She's probably throwing more wood in the pyre and high fiving Melisandre while she is at it.
I hope that the trip to Bravos is just gonna be Davos and Stannis, Brokeback Blackwater style.
I was making a lot of edits lately, my fav out of the ones I made this week is this one which is my attempt at showing both ice and fire in the series (here's the whole thing). Pretty, huh? I keep making those because 1. it's good practice and I finally figured how to style the edits for weekly recaps 2. the alternative is staring at the countdown clock...and that's just mental...
We talked about silver foxes on the show last week. Apparently this gifset exists. *breathes into a paper bag*
I thought I knew everything there is to know about Thrones. I was wrong:
This is so sad, Shireen and the actress are both so cute.
I really can't re-read the books every time the show comes back on. I
mean I read them and I can't wait for all those awesome moments to come
in season 5,6 and beyond. "Tell me, Turncloak, what battles has the Bastard of Bolton won that I should fear him?. Oh, God. Then there's whole Cersei/Margaery thing. Please get Polly Walker to play Cersei's lesbian lover.
The week GoT returns they release this. That's attempted murder.
Um....*raises hand*...I can cook...
One of the few people who can make me watch something is Louis C.K. And he was hilarious hosting last SNL.
I've been watching The Tunnel. Because of reasons.
The show is good, which quite shocks me given how most I've seen of British TV either deteriorates in quality quickly or is simply unwatchable (there are some truly outstanding exceptions, though). Dillane and Clemence Poesy have such sweet and chemistry and she is surprisingly great - her character is really awesome.
I saw Nymphomaniac, part 2. Amazingly it was even worse than the first one. Jaime Bell's scenes have to be seen to be believed. What. the. fuck. I am not sure who was more uncomfortable - the actors being asked to do that sick shit or me watching it. Watching it sober, too, which was a serious mistake.
I finally saw Frozen. It was cute and everything, but it was just too much singing for me. I did like what the final act of true love was, that was great. And the snowman who acted like he was high was so cute.
Oh my God, Shameless. That was awesome. Mickey is amazing. But where is Mandy? I hope she does something graphic and brutal to her asshole of a boyfriend in the finale. Also - again, let me just say - Kevin is my hero.
