Intro for June 3, 2013
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)?
You know what a good friend is? A good friend saves you from yourself, especially when it comes to television. Duana scolded instead of answering:
“I'm not talking to you about this. I am writing about it now, then I'll watch Mad Men. I'll be asleep by the time you watch. But you owe it to yourself to stay off the internet and, since I'm thinking about it, off email.”
Here’s what I’ve learned from Game Of Thrones: love and happiness result in tragedy. If that continues to be true through the rest of the series, it means Tyrion will be just fine. Also, chances of survival increase dramatically if you bail on your woman. That also, ahem, works in the reverse.
What the f-ck are we all going to do for the next 10 months!?!
Well, clearly, seeing Will Smith’s After Earth isn’t on that list. I made a prediction and it actually came true: After Earth is the summer’s first bomb opening at a disappointing 3rd place over the weekend and under $30 million. Um, what, then, is the pattern there?
