It was fine. Now it’s over.

Go take a nap.

It’s nearly impossible to write a good ending. That’s why I actually have mad respect for David Chase and the end of The Sopranos.

David Chase had the perfect ending, it was the second to last episode which was his initial finale. But then he pulled a Lucas and had to make the ending all happy and screwed up whatever good vibes he had.

[…] I gather everyone has feelings about the “Game of Thrones” […]

I’d just like to say that being emotionally invested in this and other forms of disposable entertainment I can’t wait for the reboot of Love Boat! is exactly what the Silk Monkey Overlords have envisioned for us. My best advice? Pay all kinds of attention to the corporation behind the curtain!

New show idea….

“The Boating Dead”

Game Time Decision

I do love that I was expecting a longer article from ISM and then get 10 words total. It made me actually laugh out loud. Well done

Senor Weaselo

I think this overtakes my Euros preview for Turkey as fewest words in an article.

King Hippo

also, I saw a trailer for “Watchmen” during the Barry finale. Is that gonna be neat and dark (and not too comic book-y)?

Col. Duke LaCross

And that Westworld trailer was a nice out of left field surprise.

King Hippo

whoa, if Jesse Pinkman bangs Dolores, that would be fucking incredible

Senor Weaselo

YEAH BITCH! ROBOTS!

One can pray. I mean, it’s HBO, and they have generally earned the benefit of the doubt thus far.

King Hippo

oh, and speaking of premium teevee FUN times – Chernobyl tonight!!

/Emily Watson is one of the most underrated actresses of our times

For me, it was pretty much the best they could have done given how thoroughly they have been butchering things for the last two years.

It’s like watching the Raiders win their final game of the season enroute to going 3-13.

Fun fact*: The Raiders have not won their final game of the season since 2010!

*fact is only fun if you do not like the Raiders

King Hippo

After my experiences with the end of Dexter and Veep – I am an avid completionist, but gave up on last two seasons of each – in no way, shape, or form do I want to pick up a show that sputters to the finish.

Fuck it, I know everything can’t be WOW! like Six Feet Under (h/t Senor Weaselo) or even Breaking Bad. But I am not going to intentionally get myself mad.

/plus, it’s always a fine line for me – I like some intelligent sci-fi (Westworld and most of Crichton’s books, for example), but usually not fantasy. You put dragons and/or wizards in it, I’m usually out.

Senor Weaselo

I was too young to personally watch Six Feet Under (it premiered when I was 9), it was a Padre Weaselo show.

Game of Thrones Is like the Alliance of American Football: it ended before I got a chance to see a single minute of it.

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

…it ended before I got a chance to see a single minute of it.

You sound just like a woman describing her one-night stand with Rick Pitino.

King Hippo

Banner this man (yet again)!

A duck wearing a hat…is the best kind of duck.

nomonkeyfun

A duck drinking boilermakers is an even better duck.

theeWeeBabySeamus

King Hippo

Why is Brienne writing in the book of knights while in full armor?

Bitches love armor?

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

It’s Game of Thrones, you never know who’s gonna die next! And apparently the cast has become self-aware of that fact.

Senor Weaselo

Can she write faster?

I hope the USS Enterprise flew those lovebirds Luke Skywalker and Ellen Ripley with the one ring to rule them all back to Neo at Hogwarts before the Terminators and Predators could stop them.

NERD!
