Here are some Game of Thrones posts that cracked me up this week ahead of the Sunday premiere. I’ll be recapping the first episode for The Nerds of Color this Sunday, so keep an eye out for that. And be gentle with me, I haven’t read the books yet! ℘ Here are a couple of Westeros Transit Maps…! So cool when people figure out stuff like this!
℘Key and Peele show us how much The Valets love Game of Thrones when they reenact all the major deaths in the last four seasons. They love Khaleesis thooo!! Khaleesis wit them dragons! They kill me. “The Dinkles is my jam, my jelly, my peanut butter and my peanuts.” Check it out here:
℘Seth Meyers invited Jon Snow to a dinner party… turns out Jon is a bit of a depressing dinner guest…
Do you rewatch TV shows over and over and over? I do. So does Margaret Lyons of Vulture. I quote her #StayTuned column on rewatching TV series, then talk about my own feelings about TV as a constant comfort.
My favorite new show of the fall has already been renewed! This is one of the fastest network TV renewals I can remember hearing about (I’m sure I’m missing one). It’s only been three episodes! I know that cable networks, like HBO, pull this card all the time (I remember when HBO renewed Game of Thrones the night of it’s premiere), but it’s rare to see a network do it.
Also, I didn’t know that they were sticking with a 13 episode season. This should be great. As we see with cable and British television, shorter seasons lead to great acclaim and better storytelling, so I’m excited to see what a 13 episode season across two seasons could hold. This could be the beginning of a trend on network television.
Until the next episode (or article on the greatness that is Nicole Beharie)!
