ish42 wrote:"Rains of Castamere" at the end of GoT nearly gave me a nerdgasm. The episode just cemented for me that the actors playing the Lannisters have got them down perfectly. All the stuff with Cersei and Sansa was awesome!

Argh I had to look up what "Rains of Castamere" was and ended up seeing two pretty major spoilers in the process.

Enjoyed this weeks GoT. The best by far I think. Having read what happens with Tyrion, I'm excited for what's ahead of him.

Ugh.

Entering the America dark zone between normal schedule ending and the awesome summer stuff starting like Louie and that.

It was pretty good, there was less fighting than I thought there would be though.

For the first time this series, GOT managed to be better than The Borgias.
Can't believe it's the season finale next week already!

Must watched the series finale of NCIS. I fucking hate cliffhangers.

I have mixed feelings for NCIS. One part of me wants it to end gracefully, tie up the romances of tony/zeva and abbie/mcgee and let Gibbs go off in the sunset with jamie lee Curtis.

But as there is another season, I hope jamie lee Curtis joins as a main cast or frequent guest star. And an actual season long villain would be nice again, its felt very directionless since the death of the red headed bird and they only bring a villain in for the cliffhanger.

I think I'm the only one that can't be arsed with the whole Tony/Ziva and the will they won't they thing. One things for sure though if they do pair them up then please have it at the end whenever it is. If they do it quickly and there's another 2/3 years (think it will be ending soon despite the fact it's one of America's most watched shows) then it'll change the whole dynamic of the show.

And yeah, more season long villians is a good thing. Thought the one from last years season finale would but they had him caught after an episode.

Just watched Episode 10. The last three or four haven't seemed to be up to the usual standard. Unbelievably contrived storylines, lazy subplots, and only a handful of laughs overall. Hoping the next few pick things up again.

Although, that said, the final minute of the episode where JD and The Todd turn up has got to be the highlight of all three series so far.
