I would have liked to see Arya have a little better showing when she drew her sword on Thoros. Her teacher taught her better I thought. Didn't expect her to go Indigo Motoya on him, but she was disarmed so easily it was a bit of a downer. I think my favorite scene was the archer from the Brotherhood loosing that arrow high into the sky above Arya's portly partner.
Olenna Tyrell was a treat for sure. And nice call on the kid from Love Actually playing Jojen. Was driving me crazy trying to figure out where I knew him from. Man I am old.
@yoshi I just logged back in to write the same thing. That was a pretty bold and sexy move by her and yes Danny def blushed. Love their coy little flirtations. He also has taken to calling her "Mind" I've noticed. Pet names aren't far off.
Also loved Mindy's confession about being the "Dryer Bandit."
@AmyLynn I did not know that about Ellie Kemper. Good for her. Maybe she will be able to juggle two shows and stay on TMP.
I am loving these comments. Best discussion we've had this season. Thanks everyone and keep em coming.
@margaritad94 I missed Shauna too. I love her voice. Sadly I don't believe we will see much more of her. Amanda Setton, who portrays Shauna, will be written out of the show entirely mid-season, and Anna Camp (Gwen), who recently starred in Pitch Perfect, is being bumped from series regular to recurring, a rep for Fox confirmed to EW in news first reported by TVLine back in November.
@lizy, I was referring to what I assumed was Mindy's favorite Tom Hanks/Meg Ryan romcom. She said the Empire State Building was home to the "second best" film they ever made together, Sleepless In Seattle. So I am assuming she regards You've Got Mail as the best. You with me?
@claire glad you like the reviews. I try my best to proofread them. Often in my haste to post, so you all can comment, an occasional typo will sneak through. I will try to do better, I promise.
@Jen sorry for the confusion. I wasn't slamming Liberal Arts, I just was worried that the storyline on HIMYM was going to be too similar which was not the case fortunately. I am a fan as well.
As for Mother Mania, I never subscribed to the Barney's half-sister being the mother theory. The mother is supposed to be Cindy's old roommate right? Wouldn't Ted and Barney have realized Ted was dating someone who lived with a member of Barney's family? So for me it wasn't that big of a revelation. At this stage in the story I am hungry for chunkier cookies.
I thought it was great. Loved seeing Lip go all Real Genius and build that laser to beat those college boys at their own game. I wonder if this "muling" will be a new source of income for Frank. You know one of the balloons will go missing and he'll blow it eventually, no pun intended. How about Kevin getting all shredded in the off season? He and V were hilarious. I too am a Mandy fan and applaud her aversion for wearing pants. Estefania's father taking out Marco was as shocking a scene I've witnessed on the show. Steve went right home to find comfort in taking care of Fiona and the family.

HAHAHA I hope you get to play Peanut Butter Jelly Time some day with them too. I only caught the tail end of the episode but I rewound multiple times, the last scene where Nick took a big pull off the absinthe bottle and yelled "That was a mistake WOO, I am gonna poop weird tonight!"
@Dale very interesting point about the woman giving Ted the big eye at the party. I did not notice but am going to go back and check it out. I'll make a meme of it and post to our tumblr site so be sure to check for it.
