Yeah, I've actually been really enjoying it.

Whilst most "A WACKY NEW LOOK AT CLASSICS" are annoying as fuck, this is actually really well done.

Throws a good spin on most of the fairytails, and has interesting characters/plots.

Game of Thrones episode 2: a) Portrayal of Yara is much more to my liking than I thought. b) Scene with Melisandre and Stannis was awesome. c) I want to squish Gendry's face and cuddle him.

Oh and the design of Pyke. YES.

I love Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares USA, but the Dad in this episode is just asking for a punch in the face. Aggravating cunt!

First episode of The Borgias was as lovely as I'd expected it to be.


The second episode of Game of Thrones was excellent. I especially liked the part where I didn't read the books so I don't have to give a fuck about comparisons.

The second episode of "Game of Thrones" was even worse than the first. I'm done with this shit I think.

Yeah. In the second part they convinced his Dad to stay at the bar and leave the son to handle managing the kitchen, and to let the floor staff just do their job. Within minutes of dinner service he was wandering into the kitchen, trying to take over managing it, hassling floor staff, etc. If I worked there I'd have told him to fuck off.

HIMYM finally confirmed the timeline. I'm not sure that Lyndsy Fonseca passes for 14/15 but at least that means if there's a baby in 2015 then the mother will have to be met within the next year - I hope?? I don't think Ted's big romance would be completely rushed.

That's what I'm hoping. Either the end of this season or definitely in the next.

Calling it now, Josh Radnor dies in a random car accident before the next season.

We never find out how he met their mother.

Yes.. "random".. :eyes:
I'm half expecting it to get to the episode where he meets her, he'll say "Hey" and then it'll pause as Ted's voiceover goes "...and that's how I met your mother" and the show ends forever.
