Summer time is almost here and you know what that means: lots of sitting on the couch in front of the boob tube (with a tall glass of lemonade) catching all of the cool new and returning shows that the networks are going to be putting out during the humid months! The outside is full of cancer causing sunshine and malicious bugs out to give you lyme disease…stay inside where its safe under the warm glow of the television. Now click onward to see which shows I will be setting my DVR to record this summer.
Truer words have never spoken and those words ring very true especially once you feast your eyes on Reddit user CarlosDanger100’s little project, CAGE OF THRONES, where he has PhotoShopped noted thespian Nicolas Cage’s face onto cast members from GAME OF THRONES. Some of them are hysterically bad, some of them are just hysterical (Cage as Ramsey holding a sausage), some are pretty freaking unnerving (Cage as Sansa will give me nightmares for months) and some really work (Cage’s Stannis looks great). Take a look after the cut.
This upcoming season looks to be an extremely violent one even by GAME OF THRONES already brutal standards. But on top of the rampant killing we also are getting the Sand Snakes, Stannis’ taking of the North, Dany making strides to claim the Iron Throne and Tyrion actually meets the friggin’ dragons! April 12th can’t get here soon enough.
The fourth season finale of GAME OF THRONES had a ton of amazing moments from Harryhausen-esque animated skeletons to Stannis riding to the rescue beyond The Wall to the epic battle between The Hound and Brienne…it was just an incredible episode of television. But nothing stood out more to me than the scene(s) where Tyrion exacted his revenge upon two of those who have wronged him the most gravely.
There really isn’t much to explain about “Watchers On The Wall” except to say it was a big ass episode long battle reminiscent of the “Blackwater” episode from Season Two. And with that in mind I figured the best way to recap this ep was visually.
Have you ever been watching a TV show that you really liked yet there was just one character that you really hated with a passion played by an actor who just annoyed you completely and you wished he were not a part of the show? Well imagine if that actor were to bring the same acting style you absolutely loathe to show after show that you enjoy? Would you feel like there was a conspiracy going on to ruin TV for you specifically? Well, if so you would be a paranoid nutcase but never let it be said that I considered myself to be 100% sane because I think Michiel Huisman is out to destroy my enjoyment of TV by constantly popping up on shows I like.
Snoop’s English accent and the way he kept saying Petyr Baelish’s name just killed me.
