-I truly don’t understand the GoT fandom (or at least the portion that I follow on Twitter). Rolling Stone’s cover story with Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner dropped, and my TL immediately turned into a whole lot of fighting between Arya and Sansa stans. I don’t get it, especially because the interview is a delight. I love Maisie’s frequent f-bombs (“I thought I wasn’t a feminist if my favorite color was pink. And then I decided that’s fucking stupid”) and the oh-so-casual way Sophie reveals that’s she’s dated girls (“Everyone experiments. It’s part of growing up. I love a soul, not a gender”).

-This Pushing Diasies reunion made my heart swell. God, I loved that show.

-The Jussie Smollett saga may have ended — and we still have no idea what really happened. All 16 felony charges against him have been dropped and his record wiped clean.

Smollett told the press “I have been truthful and consistent on every level since day one.” Fox TV released a statement saying they are “gratified that all charges against him have been dismissed.” Meanwhile Chicago police and the city’s mayor denounced prosecutors for dropping the charges, saying “We have a lot more evidence than we told the media about and we were fully prepared to go to trial. We’re very angry this happened.”

-In his Variety cover story, Kit Harington talks about the finale season of Game of Thrones (“Balls out, I think is the term.

Jason Sudeikis allowed Ellen Degeneres and his wife Olivia Wilde to cut his hair on TV. He shouldn’t have.

-Jesus. After Netflix cancelled One Day at a Time, Sony TV immediately started to shop it around and was approached by CBS All Access — but a clause in Netflix’s contract prevents the show from moving to another streaming service. So not only did they cancel it while at the same time talking about the need for diverse storytelling, they also made it more difficult for the show to live on. Stuff like that, and this article on Netflix’s monoculture machine, have me worried.
