This reminds me, I have to catch-up on Thrones before the premiere.
I’m glad you (didn’t) ask! I just blitz’d a weekend in Maui for a best friend’s wedding, and well. Coming back to reality after two days in paradise requires efforting on several levels. Readjusting to timezones, readjusting to the perils and praxis of regular life, yadda, yadda.
But I can’t complain.
I’ve discovered the answer to a question I’ve been asking myself since last year, when I knew I would be going to Maui. Is thirty hours of travel in the span of four days, and thousands of dollars for said travel, and missing teaching two incredibly intensive summer classes, worth forty-eight hours in paradise, for a best friend’s wedding?
But this, right here! It’s the weekly column where we share what we’re up to, on a given week! I’ll share my own findings, as I rattle around in the befuddled muck of my consciousness, trying to figure out not just what I’m up to, but what day it is, what time it is, this and that, this and that.
I’ve been binging 1980s action flicks lately, and as I have, I’ve realized something. The perfect length for (almost) any movie is 90 minutes. 97 minutes with credits. So, shoutout to Game of Thrones for capping off their seventh season with a perfect-length film.
Game of Thrones is winding down, folks. Yesterday (I think?) we got a trailer for the seventh season. Today, we have found out how many episodes the final season shall be. Six. Fucking six. There, now you know. Six.
Here’s the first official trailer for the seventh season of Game of Thrones. As much as I bag on this show, I really want to watch the final two seasons as they air, surfing the zeitgeist with everyone else.
Go figure: HBO is exploring potential spin-offs for everyone’s favorite mediocre display of dragons, tits, and violence. Yup. That’s right. Fuck Winter. Game of Thrones spin-offs are coming.
New Game of Thrones trailer! Season 7 awaits! I should really catch-up on this show!
Game of Thrones‘ eighth season will be its last. It’ll also be its shortest, by a considerable margin.
Game of Thrones, America’s favorite ruthlessly mediocre, incessantly nihilistic, gorgeously produced show has a return date. The seventh season arrives July 16. I’ll catch-up by then, if only to complain about the show and the extravagant and unwarranted praise it receives.
The biggest baddest villain from Game of Thrones has been cast in a key role in Marvel’s Inhumans TV series.
