Alex and star of Funny or Die’s “Gay of Thrones” Jonathan Van Ness gab about “Gay of Thrones,” his new podcast, “Getting Curious” and, of course, the haps in the Seven Kingdoms circa Season 5 and what we might expect in Season 6. What we know for certain? Loras needs to stay pretty and Anastasia (Romanov) was more than just a cartoon, y’all.
Welcome to the first of three Season 5 Catch-Up episodes to prepare us all for Season 6 of HBO’s “Game of Thrones”! In the first installment, actress/producer and founding member of Team Unicorn, Rileah Vanderbilt stops by to chat about everything that went down last year in Essos, specifically with Dany, Ary and Tyrion. We also get into the new biweekly science show Rileah’s executive producing for Comic-Con’s new VOD channel, and our ideal geek code of conduct. Enjoy!
Alex and Johnny whine about their slight disappointment with this episode, but also create a new couple to ship – Bronn and Olenna. BroLenna, Ladies and Gents. Let that tickle your brain masses for a minute.
Seriously? I mean, we saw it coming in Episode 2, but SERIOUSLY?!
Alexandra and Johnny attempt coherent analysis of “Hardhome,” but pretty much spend 90 minutes squeeing over how awesome this episode was. Because, Tyrion and Dany. Because, Sansa and Theon. Because, Night King. BECAUSE, WUN-WUN.
This week, Johnny and Alexandra discuss the sad tidings at Winterfell, Sam’s first date, Dornish boobs, and a Dany’s new toy. Also, if you haven’t seen the films “Cube,” “Brother Sun, Sister Moon,” “Stigmata,” or esteemed soap opera, “General Hospital” circa 2002-3… apologies in advance. We digressed…
Johnny and Alexandra tackle the episode’s “controversial” ending, how Arya’s doing in drama school and her visit to the Cave of Faces, Petyr Baelish’s master plan, and, of course, “The Great Dornish Caper!” starring our new favorite couple, Bronn and Jaime. First one to send a B/J slash fic our way wins a shoutout! Also, there is much, much Scooby Doo to be had this week. You’ll see.
Johnny makes his triumphant return after sitting Shiva for Ser Barristan, and he and Alexandra dive right into such trenchant topics as, “Big Brother: The Vale of Arryn Edition,” why one NEVER goes full Greyscale, Shireen’s impending doom and Tormund Giantsbane’s use of sign-language. AVOID minutes 23-27 if you don’t want to be spoiled for something minor – things got away from us. Also, ignore me when I say that this is one of our shorter episodes. It’s not.
Join Alexandra and special guest host, stand up comedian Jodi Miller as they discuss Jaime’s journey to get his balls back, Melisandre’s magical Brazilian, whether or not Bran will be able to have children, and the utterly unnecessary demise of everyone’s favorite knight/Pop Pop. Also, Alexandra drops a “Star Wars” reference. You’re welcome, Star Wars Fans. May the 4th be blah blah blah…
This week Johnny (Twitter @cycloptiko) and Alexandra (Twitter @alxaugust) ponder Night’s Watch Etiquette, the High Septon’s naked constitutional, Sansa’s continuing journey to awesomehood and the new trend in assless dresses taking brothels by storm.
