Best Thing I’ve Seen This Week 040212

April 2, 2012

It was pointed out to me today that I’ve completely lost track of what day it is. So it would seem apologies are in order for not letting you know what was awesome this week.

I think it’s a given to anyone who’s in the know, that the best this this week was the Season 2 premier of HBO’s Game of Thrones (or at least the “OMG Game of Thrones returns this weekend” anticipation leading up to it.) I had the privilege last season of being one of the viewers who hadn’t read the books, so everything thing was new and awesome. I’m almost finished with book 4 at this point, so season 2 had me arguing with the screen once we got to Dragonstone and “new” characters were revealed. For some reason I always pictured Davos more like of this guy.

I also forgot how much new information is presented in book 2. So combine that with the new set locations, and the whole thing left me a little disappointed. I’m sure it’ll get better as the season progress, but someone needs to explain to the producers that this show is on HBO, not the SciFi channel. This bullshit level of CGI is unacceptable.

I didn’t really “see” it, but the best thing I heard this week was a set of Jimmy John’s radio spots that Mitch Hedberg recorded before he died. If they don’t make you laugh, then you’re dead inside.
