Game of Thrones...O...M...G!


Trivia Answer: "That's What She Said" was one of Michael Scott's favorite lines on The Office. You could argue that Mike Myers from Wayne's World also used that phrase and yes, I did give you credit, but I Michael said it week after week, season after season.

I tried writing this since review right after I finished watching Sunday's episode of Game of Thrones last night but the words didn't come out of my fingers and brain as easily as they should have. I think it's because my mind was blown. Just when you thought GOT couldn't get any better, just when I thought I'd seen everything possible, they went and gave us the best episode EVER. Started out with Dani, Tyrion and the Dragons. Then, Theon and his kickass sister showed up and started their own alliance complete with a cool new handshake. Cut to Jon Snow and his crew prepping for the Battle of the Bastards. They really didn't have much of a plan at all. Sansa warned JS to think outside the box. She kept telling him that Ramsey was a sick twisted f*ck and he needed to expect the unexpected, but he really didn't listen. He's never had time to sit down and watch Big Brother to know what that even means. Instead, he went to see the Red Witch and basically we all prepped for Jon Snow to die all over again. It was billed as the "Battle of the Bastards" and it was seriously one of the most violent, bloody, crazy, stressful, intense pieces of filmaking I've ever seen. When Jon was getting buried by bodies, I thought for sure this was it...he's dying again but NOOOOOOOOO he somehow got up above the body parts to breathe, but it wasn't over. Ramsey had the numbers and surrounded what was left of our guys and started smushing and spiking them all but then...when we thought how the hell is JS going to get out of this? The cavalry arrived...SANSA and LITTLEFINGER saved the day. That's who she sent the letter to and thankfully the Westeros Post Office was working way harder than the Tenafly Post Office. Littlefinger obviously got the letter, got an army together and got to Sansa JUST in the knick of time. (I'm sure he's gonna want something BIG in return) Then...after the dust settled and Jon had gift wrapped Ramsey and left him tied up in a bow for Sansa to handle, the best ending ever...hungry dogs ripping apart their sick, twisted, horrible, master piece by piece. The women of Game of Thrones kicked ass and took names and my bet at the end of this thing is that we don't have one king...we have queens. Seriously best episode everrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!

Odd Mom Out
Man I missed Jill and Odd Mom Out! She was back getting her annual mammogram and screaming out loud everything I never say, when my boobs are being squished like pancakes. Jill's been taking a Brooke break since last season, Lex is at some cool country club for divorced dads. Is that a real place rich dads can go to when their rich wives throw them out? Jill was trying to get back into the workforce now that her kids are in school full time. Loved how she stopped and belted out the Working Girl tune "Let the River Run" in the middle of the street. Also loved the outfit she interviewed in. Where on earth does one find something like that? Her husband was home with the kids and at the end of both of their days, when they snuggled up together, I loved that they both agreed that their kids were just plain ANNOYING!  Bravo has the next two eps ready to binge online, but I was exhausted from Game of Thrones to watch those and UnReal, so I've got a ton to get to tonight. Welcome back Jill...missed you! 


-I literally had tears rolling down my cheeks this morning watching the latest Jimmy Kimmel Father's Day Challenge. I have no idea why I found kids throwing sh*t at their Dad's so freaking funny, but I did. I think it's just so hilarious that all Dad's seem to be oblivious to what's going on around them at any given point. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y36XFFZTNKw

-Some are better than others, but honestly, they're all pretty good. You'd think we'd start to get sick of um but we just don't. I mean I don't. I get that stupid smile as soon as I see the Range Rover and James on the road. This IS Carpool Karaoke with...Selena Gomez. Enjoy!  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mNcdlLIOdNw
  -Apparently, when Season 3 of Penny Dreadful ended Sunday night, the closing credits said, "The End." I was literally in a media blackout all day and didn't read anything at all about it until last night, but I LOVE this! No big warning, no fanfare, the fans and the press had no idea the end of this one was coming. It also meant little pressure on the finale. Brilliant idea, wish I thought of it. Can it ever be done again? YES! It can, we all don't have to know when the end of one of our faves is coming, do we? I know the nets are looking for anything that will boost a shows ratings and finales are always ratings winners but when you look at ratings in general, they aren't THAT big with the exception of

-Carrie Underwood's still got her Sunday Night Football theme song gig, but Joan Jett's "I Hate Myself for Loving You" is out...Miranda and Carrie's "Somethin Bad' is in. New lyrics of course but the new "Oh Sunday Night" will be ready to rock by 9/8 for the premiere of NBC's Sunday Night Football

-If you have any time, Ray Donovan fans, the premiere is already available on Showtime.com, YouTube and Itunes. I've got a busy week, but if I can get to it before Sunday...I will! Summer fun starting to heat up...Big Brother TOMORROW!!!
