The HBO cable TV channel has some pretty smart programming people lately. The past couple of years they have shown many hit series. The current series that has my interest is Game of Thrones, based of the books called “A Song of Ice and Fire.” It is a fictional story from the days of castles, kings, knights and dragons. The premiere episode of the 3rd season is on tonight at 9:00 pm and I cannot wait to watch it!
Most of the actors and actresses are British or European, so the faces were new to me until I started watching other British shows movies, and now a whole lot of the Game of Thrones actors look very familiar from their other roles. If you have seen it, what do you think about the casting?
I wasn’t hip to the first season of Game of Thrones and only happened to come across a couple of the last episodes of season two, so I was just recently trying to figure out the story line. Thankfully, HBO ran a week of free movies and TV series last week, so I was able to watch the entire first season and second season of Game of Thrones – all 20 episodes. So now I am up to date and ready to watch the first episode of season three.
Season two was building up to a war between some of the 7 kingdoms and their grand finale was the battle, and what happened to the main characters of the winners and the losers. The battle had a couple of surprises, and I don’t want to spoil it for you, so I won’t say more about it.
If you have not watched Game of Thrones but you like knights in armor, black magic, dragons and kings, you can jump into the story now and catch up on the first two seasons later. As for me, every Sunday night for the next 10 weeks I’ll be watching HBO and the latest episode of Game of thrones. In fact, if they release the series on DVD, I will probably buy them – I like them THAT much!
How about that? Two of the things that I really love and enjoy have been partnered up in this video on YouTube.com. I have come to love watching The Big Bang Theory, and I have always been a fan of Flash Mobs. I have spent hours on YouTube.com finding and watching various flash mobs, some of them are pretty lame but most are totally entertaining and just crack me up!
I know there are others out there that would enjoy watching this as well. When I found this video I noticed that there are a good amount of The Big Bang Theory videos on YouTube.com, several of them are Bloopers and I just adore Bloopers, a good laugh is always good for the mind, body and soul.
It was bad enough to have gone into our local Hallmark Store during the first week of August and finding them putting up their Christmas ornaments, but now on the Hallmark Channel they are showing commercials for their up and coming Christmas themed movies. This is just ridiculous and I’m seriously thinking of contacting them and giving them a ear full. There is plenty of time for all the Christmas junk, there is just no need for this kind of advertising while it is still Summer!
Not really a tattoo fan but I have seen some that are awesome works of art. I’ve even watched the show on cable called “Miami Ink” and thought the show is cool for giving a couple of excellent tattoo artists some exposure.
On a selection of Bic disposable lighters there are some eye catching tattoo designs showcased as lighter art. The designs are all from a web site called Bullseye Tattoos. I made a note of the site address and went to check it out. Very cool designs – nice site.
Everyone jokes about how bad reality shows are but I can’t seem to stop watching them. The stranger the better! Obviously I’m not the only one since networks continue to produce them. However, I’ve noticed an interesting phenomenon lately. Rather than getting more creative with premises in many cases, networks like I watch on my Direct TV are taking the shows already on and giving them a gender twist. Hook Line & Sister on TLC is a perfect example. The ever popular ice fishing show takes on a whole new look when presented from a woman’s point of view! Being from the southeast, I make no claim to have any understanding of Alaskan fishing. But even as a woman I was not only surprised that there are women who do this for a living but that they would go on tv to show the experience warts and all. Okay maybe not that surprised but surprised that women who would take on a gender bending role as such would need to show it on tv. Needless to say, it does make for interesting television viewing.
