We're living in a time where shows like Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, and Boardwalk Empire exist and do something you don't quite see in movies.

And I am happy for it. These shows have all been great rides.

Hah, "Yakety Sax".

I read the books years ago so it was fun seeing the reactions of various knights of summer on the internet. It helps recapture, vicariously, the feeling of seeing a grand masterstroke of a plot twist for the first time.

Lets rank the three Episode 9's of the past 3 seasons.

For me:

Season 2: Ep 9 "Blackwater"
Season 3: Ep 9 "Rains of Castermere"
Season 1: Ep 9 "Baelor"

Rewatched Baelor last night, lots of foreshadowing to Rains of Castamere.

Was epic then, but not so much now... since Ned is barely in the episode other than the beginning and the execution. While Rains let us have so many great moments with Rob, Cat, Telisa, and co before the whole ordeal.

I'm starting to think Lena Headey is trolling us

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
First she tweets about how much she's going to miss Michelle Fairley without mentioning Richard.

Then she does an interview where she says Fairley has a throat infection.

Feel throaty eh? Who else has problems with her throat?


OK, maybe I'm reading too much into things just a little bit.

OK, it just dawned on me; what happened to the groom who was taken off to the bedding ceremony with his new wife at the wedding; was he killed also..?

Too bad it's too late for Joffrey and Bran to sing Motherlover.

Second most successful show on HBO.
Count the illegal numbers and it's the most watched HBO show ever.

International numbers kill all the other shows too. I think it's safe to say it's universally more watched than any other show they've done.

I have to question how accurate those numbers are, given that Veep gets better live numbers than Girls.

Well they say they are from HBO themselves. I can't get past that Hung got better numbers than Curb.

That's what's in the Red Wedding: Tolerable Edition I just linked two posts before yours...

As to the viewership numbers, they're accurate. It was right behind True Blood for a long time the past two seasons, now it has finally surpassed it.

Keep in mind when they say 15 million they mean in all viewing markets total, not just the first-run east coast at 9:00. That's still only like, 2 or 3 million or 4 million or something. Which is still great numbers for premium cable.
