I agree with Alex Maranda. It wasn't rape but it was incredibly disturbing to watch. In contrast, when Jaime forced himself on Cersei after Joffrey's death WAS rape and it seemed that few people even lifted an eyebrow over that one.

Agree on Lady Olenna. I expected more than just "soap opera" long stares and naïveté. Maybe she will send Tommen to the same fate as Joffrey to send a message to Cersei.

I think Arya was indeed lying when she said she hated the Hound. She thinks she was telling the truth, though. I'm also frustrated by the pace of the season. Even though I am not a book follower, I can still feel the difference in story, style, and dialogue from the previous seasons. Even the battle with the Sand Snakes was a huge letdown. The last scene with Sansa was just straight up disturbing. She's never been my favorite character but it was painful to have watched a character "grow up" onscreen and for that to happen. I'd hoped she used the candle in the window on her wedding night although I am starting to wonder if that was a trick from Ramsay. And can someone explain greyscale to me? Once you have it, you are contagious? Jorah grabbed Tyrion last night. Is he at risk?

I wholeheartedly agree with your assessment on the scenes with Arya and also Littlefinger. You lost me with the insults towards the reviewer. As Gayle said, it's just a show.

I think it was totally "in character" to NOT call anyone, even Amelia. These are the people who had a post it note wedding, after all! All of that felt very organic and if Patrick Dempsey was looking to leave his contract early, then this is the way to go. What bugged me was the re-use of the music from the Fake Rock Opera episode and other tragic moments. It felt like someone had run out of ideas and these scenes deserved better than that.

Revenge Review: Do Unto Others

Annndddddd....I'm done. Just can't keep watching this show. The whole premise was built on Emily plotting REVENGE against the people who wronged her dead father who by all accounts actually wanted her to forgive these people. All of that is gone now. Revenge has become murderous, her dead father is alive, and surprise, not so dead daddy is a murderer, too! Buh - Bye.

Game of Thrones Review: It's Only Wine

Well played GoT. Well played. I have been begging for the death of that tool from day one and FINALLY get my payoff only to have a viewer fave be falsely accused. I'm hooked & almost want to read the books now so I don't have to wait to see where the story goes!

Parenthood Review: Mixed Signals

Solid episode.
I am not a fan of the Hank/Sarah pairing but not b/c of Sarah. She's taken a long time to "find herself" and that may be flighty for some esp in comparison of Adam & Julia & almost even Crosby but it could be Soooo much worse. I thought she clicked best w/ Carl.
Drew needs to grow up a little. What's her face was just a bed buddy who wasn't interested in him until she couldn't have him anymore. He's gone from sensitive to an emo caricature. Why can't he just get a haircut & have some fun??
Even Knight is hot in a very geeky but cool kind of way. I want to date a guy like him. :) However, I do NOT agree that Julia should have taken him back to her place. That was very inappropriate.
And I am confused about Zeek and Camille...I thought they were selling the house so they could travel more & do all the things Camille dreamed her 3rd chapter would be like? Why buy another house if that's true? Can someone correct me on this?

Parenthood Review: Mixed Signals

Life isn't so black & white that people wait for a clear verbal consent from a former partner to move on with their lives. Sometimes people will be impulsive and just go with what they are feeling in that moment. From Julia's eyes (right or wrong), she has spent the better part of a year fighting for a marriage that is broken. Her husband just told her he's not willing to work on repairing it & the only man who "makes her feel good" also makes her feel equally as guilty & wrong b/c of how their friendship played a role in the end of the marriage. This hot teacher man brought all the flattery without any of the baggage & she let herself live in the moment for just a moment. This is a very true to life scenario. I pass no judgment on it & applaud the writers for not being altruistic.
