Game of Thrones
Stanis Baratheon and Lord Davos went to the Iron Bank for a loan and were DENIED. Theon's sister went to rescue, him saw what a mess he was and split. So pathetic and sad and now he's going to pretend to be his former self to help his torturer.  Dani's Dragon's are out of control flying around burning land and killing animals. The towns people of Meeran needed to bitch about that any everything else and to her credit, Dani met with each and every one of them. Heard them, helped them and tried to be the fairest Queen of all time.  All that was a pre-cursor to Tyrion's trial. Shea came back and totally screwed him over big time. He got really PISSED and gave it to them all in an Emmy Award winning speech where he requested a trial by combat. Guess that happens next week. Pretty serious daddy issues huh? Good for Tyrion, I love that guy but hope he doesn't die in combat. 

The Good Wife
Loving the new Alicia Florick. She's just not going to take any sh*t from anyone anymore. Hopefully she figures out a way to help Diane kick the crap out of Louis and David Lee. David Lee's gotta be in on all this stuff, right? I still don't get why Canning wants to put the screws to Diane so badly, doesn't seem like a Bucket List type thing to me. Finn finally got a much needed haircut. Which will help with my endorsement but not sure about Peter's. I know theoretically he'd need the Governors endorsement, but it looks like Peter's going to get into some intern hot water soon, so maybe it's not THAT bad if he doesn't get his blessing. Tom Skerritt never seems to age. He looks better now than he ever did. Jill Hennessey looked pretty damn good too. That was her right? What's with the name Rayna? Nashville and The Good Wife and I feel like there's a third one out there somewhere. If there isn't, there will be.  Looks like the finale will be pretty juicy next week. 

Nurse Jackie
Jackie's back to her old tricks BIG time. Frank caught her popping pills, called her out and then experienced her awesome lying first hand. She hid everything she had in a broken tampon machine, but Dr. Roman had that replaced and Jackie headed over to her friends house for a pre-party. Cleaned herself up, borrowed a jacket and met Kevin and his fiance for dinner. Frank showed up even though he threw out his back and found more of Jackie's stash in the remote control. Damn she's a good pill hider. Huge news I didn't see coming. Kevin's having a baby. That should just about do Jackie in. I hate vomit in general, but Carrie getting vomitted on was enjoyable. Dr. Prentiss is a d*ck but at least we know why. Zoey defended him because he customizes her food which IS sweet. Still feel like it'll end bad for them both though. Nobody's ever happy in this show, so it's pretty much a given. 

Orphan Black 
All of our girls are in deep sh*t. Sarah thought she killed Daniel, but of course he wasn't dead and showed up while she was searching Rachel's place. I'm pretty sure that Sarah hasn't changed her clothes since the start of the season or maybe since last season. She could have taken some of Rachel's stuff since it's really nice and would definitely fit, but Daniel thwarted all of her plans, tied her up and started slicing her. Good thing the indestructible Helena showed up when she did...or was it? That chick's out of her mind. Cosima's sick, but nobody knows about it and at this point she can still pull knowledge out of her butt that nobody else would ever be able to figure out, like the meaning behind Project Lita. Who would know that stuff? Allison's got a broken arm and is stuck in rehab. Liam, I mean Kal,  is taking to fatherhood pretty well and he apparently has some secret stuff going on too otherwise why would he have an unregistered camper at the ready? Something fishy's going on with him too. Then of course you have Mrs. S. her story's still unfolding, but we did learn that she likes to do it in public places and that she has an old friend she likes to do it public with who of course is all part of the story. 

Hart of Dixie
It's come to this.  I DVR Hart of Dixie and fast forward until I find scenes with Wade and Zoey. All I know from Friday's episode is that someone offered to franchise The Rammer Jammer so Wade's moving to Atlanta and Zoey's freaking out. Is he REALLY going to leave? Now that we know Hart of Dixie's coming back, I'm betting he's sticking around. 


Up until a couple of weeks ago, the only show I had ever watched on Crackle was Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. Verizon sponsors a show on there called Chosen. I finally had a chance to watch it and it is GOOD. REALLY GOOD! There are 3 6 episode seasons to catch up on. Each episode is only 22 minutes and they fly by. The premise is that the doorbell rings, the person answers it and they receive a box with a target to kill in a certain amount of time. That's all I'll tell you. It's SO much more than that. The cast is great. You'll recognize Milo Vertimiglia from Gilmore Girls and Heroes and Chad Michael Murray from One Tree Hill. It's intense and there are some f'ed up things that go down. Check it out. I'm adding it to the WWTM Binge List. 


It's Upfront Week guys...I love Upfront Week. Today is NBC's. The Fall Schedule has been released and the bittersweet news is that Parenthood will be back for a 13 episode 6th and final season. Thanks NBC, I'll enjoy every single minute of it. Parks and Rec got a final season too and Community got cancelled entirely and everyone online went insane all weekend long. 

Here's the NBC Fall Schedule: I'll let you know what I think of all the new shows as I watch the pilots. It's pretty unfair to judge on clips alone.

Cougar Town (final season)
-I admit, I don't watch much Comedy Central programming. Some roasts here and there. The occasional Colbert Report and Daily Show, but not enough to have an opinion on Stephen Colbert's replacement…Larry Wilmore. The Minority Report with Larry Wilmore will replace Stephen Colbert's Colbert Report and I hope for all of you that are fans and Comedy Central devotees, that you're cool with that.

Monday's Trivia Question: It's definitely a theme week and I think a tough one at that.  So here goes question #1:  Before Homeland, Morena Baccarin starred with Nathan Fillion and Gina Torres in this Joss Whedon show that aired on FOX.  Name the show.
