God I love George R. R. Martin, creator of the “Game Of Thrones” book series A Song of Ice and Fire. The bearded longshoreman-esque super nerd appeared on “Conan” last night to discuss the most recent episode of “Game of Thrones,” in which three major characters were slaughtered in a scene best described as totally fucking gruesome. Martin can’t help but giggle as he watches the various fan reactions posted on YouTube. Such an adorable sadist he is!
After the jump, Martin talks about why he likes to kill off beloved characters, though he admits it’s gotten harder since he’s gotten to know the actors who play them on the TV show. Keep reading »
Are you sick of us talking about “Game of Thrones” yet? Too bad! Because the Red Wedding was totally cray and we are gonna be talking about that shit for days, not counting the time spent crying about it to our therapist. Our favorite fellow straight iron enthusiast Jonathan is right there with us in the obsession. The guy behind the incredible “Gay of Thrones“ recaps is back with another one, this time in mourning shawl. [Funny Or Die]
Maisie Williams plays kickass Arya Stark on “Game of Thrones,” but she also happens to have a little addiction to six-second video-making program Vine, too. In her latest, she reacts to the most recent episode of “GoT” — you know, the one where, like, SPOILER ALERT, a whole bunch of important characters died. Kind of a rough time, eh? [Vine]
“Game of Thrones” last night, holy crap, right? That shit was cray. Amelia already talked about some of the episode’s main events, but on another note, I don’t think it’s any surprise that Jon Snow is the worst boyfriend. Yes, good ol’ Ladyface crapped out pretty bad on last night’s episode when he (SPOILER ALERT!) took off without Ygritte. Total dick move. I haven’t read the books yet (What? They’re so dense!), but based on the happenings so far on the TV show, Jon Snow makes a rather crappy mate. After the jump, all the ways Jon Snow––as Ygritte might say––knows nothing about being a good boyfriend (in GIFS!). Keep reading »
Well, that happened. Thanks to last night’s beyond tragic episode of “Game of Thrones,” I know what I’ll be discussing in therapy for the next month or so! Thanks, George R. R. Martin! You’re the best! Click onward for major spoilers — have your tissues at the ready! Keep reading »
With TV getting raunchier and more graphic every year, are you satisfied with the sex on your screen? The New York Times says that the sex on TV isn’t sexy anymore. We disagree. The Joylessness of Sex on TV discusses shows like “Homeland,” “The Americans,” and “House of Cards,” where sex is used as a ploy for personal gain instead of pleasure. It’s a valid point, but it doesn’t cover that broad of a spectrum. There are plenty of other shows out there doing sex in innovative and, well, sexy ways. Look at “Girls,” where the sex is pure awkwardness, and “Arrested Development,” where the sex is openly comical.
But what are we doing naming shows where the sex isn’t sexy? That’s just silly. You came here to find the best sex on television. These are the shows that are doing sex right. A collection of the shows with the hottest, steamiest, most salacious scenes that won’t inspire any critical analyses in newspapers. Keep reading »
