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

The Artist & The Khaleesi?!?

No Khaleesi! James Franco and Jorah Mormont: which is sh-t and which is diarrhoea? Page Six reports that James Franco and our Khaleesi were at an art fair in New York together on Saturday looking rather “friendly”, suggesting that “friendly” is a euphemism for “flirty”. 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

Dear Gossips,

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.  Read Full Intro

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. Full Story

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

Game Of Thrones Season 3 Episode 2 recap ….except of course that this episode was kind of slow.  Yes, characterized most by the fact that everyone is, or will be, on the move – but still basically a lot of laid pipe for what will be happening circa episode 4.   What was nice about it, of course, was that we got a little breathing room to spend some time with the characters, assumedly so that when things start going fever-pitch later in the season we’ll remember who was facing what particularly wrenching emotional dilemma. Full Story

Game Of Thrones Season 3 Episode 1 recap We’re back!  Delightfully, though it’s been almost a year, absolutely nothing has changed in Westeros since we were last there, except for perceptions.  I spent most of the fist episode going “okay, so here’s who they didn’t kill”. Full Story
