Rambling TV: Game of Thrones, Veep, Agents of SHIELD + more

Game of Ugly Crying, fickle shows, and maximum Selena shade throwing. Let's get to it.


Agents of SHIELD

Since Civil War didn't get the registration story they decided to dump it on Agents of SHIELD with registering the Inhumans. This episode was dreadfully boring and yet again contained way too much splooging over Daisy. I get it, Daisy is the ultra perfect Mary Sue, everyone must worship her. Too bad Coulson, May, Fitz, Simmons, and Mack are all more interesting. (And since Bobbi and Hunter's spin off didn't get picked up, can we bring them back?)

Lash died saving Daisy, and that was sad. I liked Andrew/Lash and it sucks to lose a good character to service a bad one.

Next week is the season finale. I thought it was this week, but nope. More suffering. This show is getting fickle again, it can't afford to do that.

Game of Thrones

This episode was near perfect. They're on fire this season, it's already so much better than S5. This episode was particularly strong for the women.

Castle Black - Jon and Sansa reunite right away! I ugly cried when they hugged. It was slightly embarrassing. I love how they addressed Jon and Sansa's relationship as children, it flowed so naturally and I loved Sansa taking charge and telling Jon they need to take Winterfell. The letter Ramsay sent was perfectly worded and gave Jon, the Wildlings, and Sansa all the incentive they needed to attack. 

Speaking of Wildlings, that eye fucking by Tormund to Brienne was hilarious. 

I also liked how Ed pointed out that it was kind of bullshit of Jon to leave because of the White Walkers. I think Jon is right to leave, but Edd made a good point too.

Brienne confronted Davos and Melisandre about killing Stannis. I expected to hate this scene but I actually like how it played. When Brienne said "I don't forgive or forget" all I could think about is Lady Stoneheart. The hype is strong with this one.



Winterfell - Before Ramsay sent that letter, Osha attempted to seduce him and kill him but he stabs her in the neck first. I was sad to see her go so early, but I like that she threw a good insult at Ramsay before she died. "I've seen worse."

The Eyrie - Sweetrobin hit puberty and Littlefinger is still bullshitting Royce. Why do people believe this asshole again?

Pyke - Theon and Yara reunite. She calls him a "spoiled little cunt" at one point, and he says he wants to help her rule the Iron Islands

King's Landing - The High Sparrow has a long talk with Margaery and lets her see Loras, who has turned into a giant fucking pansy during his imprisonment. At least Margaery seems to be forming a plan. Tommen tells Cersei about the High Sparrow's conversation and she and Jaime, who still needs to leave her side by the way convince Kevan and Olenna that they need to work together to fight the Faith. KL has been all build this season, I really hope the pay off is worth it.

Meereen - Tyrion invites the Slavers that are funding the Sons of the Harpy to Meereen, gives them women, and tells them they need to end slavery in 7 years. He seems to be grossly underestimating how these slavers will act and Missandei and Grey Worm let him know it. He was a slave for a minute, they were slaves all their lives.


Vaes Dothrak - Jorah and Daario infiltrate the Dothraki, Daario finds out about Jorah's grey scale, and they run into Dany who tells them she needs their help. Then when she goes into a hut to meet with the Khals, she tells them they're not fit to lead the Dothraki, but she is. They tell her they'll all take turns raping her and like the HBIC she is, she knocks over all their lamps and burns the place down. Jorah and Daario blocked the doors. She emerges from the flames unburnt again, and the Dothraki bow. 

Veep

This episode was kind of serious, it had to do with Selena's mother dying, and she had to make the decision to turn off her ventilator. There was a lot of parallels to Selena's relationship with her mother and her relationship with her own daughter Catherine, but of course she doesn't realize it. 

Great quotes:

"He's fisting the American economy right now."

"Sounds like you just shoplifted a bunch of  vibrators."

"I need a quiet place to think that doesn't have Mike's stupid face in it." 

"Again?" 

Random TV Thoughts:

SNL - Drake hosted and I thought the episode was hilarious. It wasn't as strong as some of the sketches from his first outing, but he's a fascinating dude.

Pan - So I watched this on HBO, my husband and son enjoyed it, I, well..less so. You know what the weirdest thing about this movie was? Not the fact that the pirates are singing Nirvana, or that when the Natives die, they turn into big clouds of colorful smoke, nor the fact that I couldn't really tell what they were fighting about at the end, it's that over the top reaction Tiger Lily had every time Hook smiled or touched her. What the fuck was that?

The Family - This show recently got cancelled, but I always meant to start it. The premise sounded interesting. Holy shit is this show frustrating, it's like they have to end every single episode with a cliffhanger and a twist. Even going online to read about this show, because I've gotten to the point where I just want spoilers and don't want to sit through it anymore is a jumbled mess. 

Agent Carter - This show got cancelled, and I just want to take this opportunity to tell all of you that didn't watch it and contributed to it's low ratings that you suck and should be ashamed of yourselves. This show was great. Hayley Atwell got a consolation price by getting a pilot of yet another legal drama. Only Emily Kinney, aka Beth, the worst character and actress ever on The Walking Dead is in it so it's probably going to be shit. I'm bitter. I loved Agent Carter. 

Rambling TV is a weekly series where I ramble semi-coherently about the things I've watched on television. This week is brought to you by too many pain killers because I have a major headache. Click those gifs to be redirected to their makers.

  1. Wow. I haven't seen even one episode of Agent Carter. I really do suck. Maybe it'll get picked up by Netflix or something.

    1. Veep episodes go by so quickly too. That wouldn't take long at all.

  3. I wanted to see Peggy vs. Dottie III, I only feel like they've just begun. Plus, I wanted to know who killed Chad Michael Murray. I hate TV sometimes. They cancel good shows and yet decide to give Katherine Heigl a show to do as she couldn't act for shit. Honestly, whose dick does she have to suck to get work?

    1. I hate that about TV too, and the fact that they're giving Hayley Atwell another generic show as a consolation price? Why not do Agent Carter S3, cut the budget a bit and promote it more?

    2. Exactly. I saw the trailer for the new show she's in and I'm like.... eh..... no thanks. I want to see her as Peggy one more time and kick some serious booty. *cries*

    3. Why didn't more people watch this show?! The viewers vs budget is why they cancelled it.

  4. I'm so bitter about Agent Carter too. I feel like if her part in Civil War wasn't made into a thing about Sharon/Steve, I would've been a little more okay about the show's cancellation...but with both being really shitty, it just didn't seem like she got a proper send-off at all. :/

    1. I hated that part of her funeral. She's probably the greatest female character in the MCU and they chose to make her death about her niece trying to bang her ex. Great. lol

  5. GoT was awesome this week but they better have Stoneheart in store for the end of the season. Still haven't seen last 2 eps of Veep :/

    1. This last ep of Veep was really weak, but the one before it was great. Yes, to Stoneheart. I'm going to be even more disappointed about her not being in this season because of all the subtle hints.

    3. There's too many clues this season. I really think they finally did it.

No seriously, post one. I need attention.
