Well this helps on a sluggish morning. Jon Snow arrived in Vancouver yesterday for reshoots on his film The Seventh Son. He looks really good in a tight white t-shirt. You wouldn’t know from watching the show since he’s always hidden underneath all those layers of crow. Kit’s been spending a lot of time in Canada lately. Full Story
Brienne of Tarth and Gidget from Game Of Thrones were both at the Groucho Club in London last night. It makes me happy. It makes me happy that they hang out when they’re not in the North or fighting bears in the Seven Kingdoms. Spoiler alert, even though, you know, how can you not know by now. Full Story
Game Of Thrones Season 3 Episode 10 recap It was, wasn’t it? That’s what it felt like. All the stories we’ve been told up to this point have been aiming at people who needed to get somewhere – all the different spokes of the story that needed to connect together in order to make this an actual battle.

Some shows are worth not sleeping for. I landed at 11pm back in Vancouver last night after spending the weekend in LA for the Man Of Steel junket. It was well past midnight by the time I started watching The Rains Of Castamere and close to 1:30am when I shut down to go to bed, setting the alarm at 4:30am. Happily.
For Game Of Thrones, happily.
Duana sent me an all caps email before I boarded my flight with just the title: STAY OFF TWITTER. I, of course, wrote back immediately: OMG who dies please not Gidget is it Catelyn, is it dumbass Robb (whose death I’ve been predicting for MONTHS now because he’s as sh-t at this game as his father was)?

Game Of Thrones Season 3 Episode 9 recap This is the title that won; I ran several past my husband because he thought my original title seemed callous. I don’t want to be callous. I am writing this moments after the end of the episode and yes, of course I have my heart in my mouth. Full Story

Game Of Thrones took Memorial Day weekend off and was replaced by Behind The Candelabra, temporarily. I’m OK with that. And I’m OK with an extended penultimate episode for The Rains Of Castamere. At least that’s what I think I read somewhere (which I can’t find right now so if I’m wrong I’m sorry). Full Story
Game Of Thrones Season 3 Episode 8 recap You know you’ve really gotten into a show when you start to be endlessly frustrated with the characters who just won’t behave the way you need them to. This week had any number of irritants as well as the allegedly “proper” behavior of Joffrey acting like the king dick he is, so I got more than my fair share of screaming at the screen. Full Story
Game Of Thrones Season 3 Episode 7 recap I had fun this episode. I cringed sometimes, and I winced, but it was the fun kind. This is the kind of episode you can’t possibly explain to your friends who don’t watch, because how to sum up that it starts with some light flirting and ends with a ring of brutality, and that’s only the surface? I love the scorn Ygritte has for Jon Snow, on just about any given topic. Full Story
Game Of Thrones Season 3 Episode 6 recap I worried there, for a minute. Lainey had put a bit of the curse in my head by talking about how happy Ygritte was, and how it spelled certain doom. Still I didn’t believe – not until she started talking about how Jon Snow was hers and to be loyal to her and “I’ve waited my whole life to see the world from up there”. Full Story
After Tom Brokaw’s remarks about the White House Correspondents’ Dinner last year and specifically the presence of Lindsay Lohan being the reason why he decided not to go, don’t you wonder about the people who turn down the invitation? Like, how many times has the Brange been asked to go... and said no? When the big names do make an appearance, have you noticed which ones choose to go for the full photo opportunity pimp and which ones skip the carpet and head straight inside? Hierarchy is in play in those situations too. More on this later.
Game Of Thrones Season 3 Episode 5 Well, there it was. All the sex we were waiting for – all the nudity finally arrived in episode 5, not a minute too soon. And of course, with the exception of the duel to the death in the very first scene, all that happened this episode was a bunch of people talking (what did Gramma Tyrell call Tyrion? A beleaguered banker?), so it was good that we had the sex, although raise your hand if you, like me, thought that with all the talk of sex and bedding and “how did you know what I wanted”, we might finally find out the mystery of Podrick? But there were more important fish to fry in this episode, and so it came to pass that the least consequential of all the things was Jon Snow getting not-naked-enough with Ygritte in what is apparently a hot spring that they happened to have all to themselves.

Game Of Thrones Season 3 Episode 4 recap So there was that episode. Delicious! Pace like a …not a train, exactly, but a really satisfying stretch of highway where everything moves along and there’s lots of stuff to look at. I had fun, and while sometimes having fun with Game Of Thrones means being terrified and wincing at the brutality, it’s not like it can happen with any other show. Full Story
Game Of Thrones Season 3 episode 3 recap The chairs. Of course the chairs. And everything else that happened in only an hour. But before we get there, let’s take a minute for the arrows – those arrows that couldn’t find their target if they’d been directed by the Gods. Full Story
