-People are really, really upset by how hard last night’s Game of Thrones episode was to actually make out. (I think it was less about the DP lighting scenes poorly, and more a combination of weird, choppy editing and the limits of video compression algorithms and TV technology.) My babies Jamie and Brienne were out there fighting back to back Mr & Mrs Smith-style, so I was happy. I do think that transitioning to Cersei as the big bad might be rough though.

The Simpsons aired a Canada-centric episode last night complete with “Newfie” and seal-clubbing jokes. Ugh.
