Was it just me, or was this week’s episode of True Blood funnier than usual? Maybe they were making up for last week’s ickiness. Or maybe not. Whatever the case, it cracked me up. Here are my top 3 LOL moments:
1. Pam being all amused that she turned Tara into the Tasmanian Devil
Okay actually even Tara zipping around and bouncing off walls was pretty funny, but Pam’s amusement (and did I see a bit of pride in there?) was much funnier. Because yes folks, it’s official — the Tarazmanian Devil is just as annoying undead as she was alive.
2. Reverend Newlin’s dancing
This was almost painful to watch. Super awkward. But in a funny way.
3. That Authority kid
OMG HE KILLED ME! Hahaha! Who the heck was that kid?? And what was with the pounding-fist-on-table overacting? I hope we find out his back story because I’m pretty sure he escaped from the House of Slytherin or something.
LOLs aside, it was a pretty good episode, and I’m looking forward to seeing more of the budding Bill & Eric bromance, among other things.
Til the next ep, Truebies. :)
I’ma big True Blood fan (mostly because of Eric), so I was really happy to watch it again last night — but I’d forgotten how weird and gross it can be. Here are my top 3 icky moments from the Season 5 premiere:
1. Eric and his sister going all Cersei and Jaime
Much as I hate to complain about any scene that calls for shirtless Eric, this was just…ew. It felt like True Blood got all jealous of Game of Thrones so they decided to throw in a sorta-sister with a British accent so they could have their own little bit of incestuous fun that everyone could gab about. Yuck.
2. Marcus’ mom snacking on her son
I’m sure that there’s some sort of werewolf rule somewhere that says you’re supposed to do this to get his power or so he can go to WereHeaven or whatever, but YUCK! You don’t cry over someone and then EAT HIM 5 seconds later!!! WHO DOES THAT??? Well, Marcus’ family apparently.
3. That friggin tooth on Sookie’s kitchen floor
I’m not sure what it says about me that I was more disturbed by that lone tooth than by the pool of Tara’s skull-blood in the previous ep —- but OMG that tooth really freaked me out! Maybe it’s a by-blow of my fear of dentists… I don’t know. whatever. GAH!
And that’s it for today. I’m still mourning over annoying Tara’s apparent NON-DEATH, so I need some time to recover.
Til the next ep, Truebies!
I don’t know if I was just being hormonal or whatever but I was a bawling mess in the Game of Thrones Season 2 finale. While it didn’t have the “Wow! Battles! OMG Wildfire! Burning!” impact of the previous episode, it had some really great moments.
Here are my top 3: (SPOILER ALERT!)
1. Shae & Tyrion being all awesome
I swear to God there’s nothing more heartbreaking than seeing a badly injured little man cry. Who knew? But when Shae told Tyrion she was his — disfigurement, dangerous life and all, I just bawled my eyes out. (It wasn’t pretty.)
2. Daenerys seeing Khal Drogo with the cutest little Khalbaby ever
Even if it was just an illusion created by those creepy wizards, I loved seeing the Khal and Khaleesi together again. And omg that little Khalbaby killed me, it was so cute.
3. Arya’s obvious reluctance to save silly old Sansa
Okay, this actually made me laugh — and I needed it, what with the Tyrion/Shae sobfest and the Bran/Rickon/Maester Luwin scene making me squawk like a kidnapped baby dragon.
Arya’s such a cool kid. And I was actually sad to see Jaqen “The Man” H’ghar say goodbye (with the coolest face-change trick EVER btw!) because I loved their little assassin alliance, twisted as it was. But then she did have the mysterious coin and magic phrase, so I’m pretty sure they’ll meet up again.
There were other good moments, of course… like Theon being smacked upside the head after trying to be all Braveheart…hehe…
..Oh and the baby dragons proving that the weirdo warlocks weren’t too accurate when they named their home the “House of the Undying” …
… but those three were my faves.
What were yours?
I don’t think I’ve ever hated a villain as much as I hate Joffrey from Game of Thrones. I’m obviously not alone in this because I just found this charming illustration of him being pelted by cow poop.
Haha!! Take THAT, you little prick!
My friend Risha says he’s been described as a wandless but more evil Draco Malfoy, but I beg to disagree. Give or take a few magic tricks, Draco’s just your run-of-the-mill bully. Joffrey is the spawn of Satan. And I’ve never reacted as violently to Draco as I do to Joffrey every single time I see him onscreen.
As Risha pointed out though, this burning hatred I have is due in a large part to the talent of Jack Gleeson — who plays the part of the despicable little douchebag to perfection. It takes mad skills to make people want to rip your eyes out every time they see you on TV.
So bravo, Jack. Bravo.
I just hope I never run into you in real life because I have a bit of a problem separating TV from reality.
I watched the pilot of Magic City the other night. Um, it’s set in Miami in the 50’s. And there’s Mafia stuff involved. That’s really all I can tell you because I was too busy giggling at all the women’s granny panties.
So there I was, so smug in in my modern bikini briefs, all “LOL! Their panties are huge!!! LOL!!!”
…And then the next day I had to wear a clingy dress.
Well played, women of the 50s, well played.
I see you’ve been talking to that bitch KARMA.
