I don't know...they lose their luster after a while. In GoT, I've come to associate naked boobies with rape or some sort of massive, insane power play that will result in half the cast getting hosed.

Yeah. Nice finale.
There will come a day for every man when he will relish the prospect of eating his own shit. That day has yet to come for me.

What I hate is that EVERY review laments the omission of Lady Stoneheart...

And that's good! Because the books fall apart now... The show can't follow the books after this. And everyone's favorite water zombie is just extra weight to the already huge story and, really, just a macguffin that GRRM is using for his masturbation fantasies.

I enjoy that the show is even lighter on magic than the books, but now we're entering dangerous territory with Bran's training and if they follow Arya's story to the letter...

Next season will be interesting in terms of jumping the shark (which books 4 and 5 did horrifically).

I'm also waiting for GRRM to lose it. He's already said he plans to go back and re-release the books George Lucas style to keep them in line with the show...And, of course, the series just got extended so there's no end in sight. Nor does it look like the next book is any closer to hitting the shelves... That side of things is unraveling.

I just watched South Park's season 17 deconstruction of G.R.R. Martin and his flaccid penis fantasies. I lol'd.

That cycle of episodes is amazing.

It's not the first time. In fact, I'm starting to wonder if it's her only hobby. Headey's the social media version of awards-party Jennifer Lawrence. The only reason we don't see her photo-bombing Taylor Swift is because everyone's afraid of her in person.

I am all kinds of disappointed that the queen refused to sit in the Iron Throne.

Though I did hold my breath as she hovered near the step and everyone seemed afraid to reach out and give her a hand up.  Because if she died trying to sit on the Iron Throne, that would have been the craziest thing ever to happen in the history of the world and it's all we would ever talk about from this day forward. Can you imagine?

I Can't Stop Laughing At This Guy's Game Of Thrones Video Recaps

 I just discovered this funny video of a southern gentleman giving his thoughts on the USMNT drawing Portugal. It turns out that this guy also posts quick video reviews of Game of Thrones episodes on his YouTube channel, and each one of them is a ridiculous treasure. I present a handful here, along with some of my favorite lines from each one, for your enjoyment.

A Church is Blocking Cersei's Big Nude Scene in Game of Thrones

Cersei Lannister's most important (non-incestuous) nude scene from Game of Thrones is proving difficult to film, due to a dispute with the Croatian church that was supposed to provide the backdrop.

The iconic scene from A Dance With Dragons calls for Cersei (played by Lena Headey) to emerge completely naked from the Great Sept of Baelor (played by Dubrovnik's Church of St. Nicholas). But TMZ reports the local film commission has denied the Game of Thrones producers' request to shoot there because of church policies against public nudity.

Game of Thrones obviously can't sacrifice one of the pivotal scenes in Cersei's story arc, or the opportunity to show the audience more bare breasts (they're the show's bread and butter, really).

It looks like they'll have to find another church—they've recast actors, so why not buildings?—or hope that God can forgive some more gorgeous, very expensive CGI.
