Re: ““Game of Thrones” Season 4, Episode 5: First of His Name

Um I don't know if this is a spoiler free blog, but without saying too much, I wondered if you think Brienne is going to run into Lady you-know-who, like she does in the books?

Not that this should be taken as fact, but apparently some of the actors were asked and said that Coldhands isn't showing up in Bran's story at all in the show.


Obviously *if* he was they wouldn't announce it like that, so I'm still a bit hopeful, but we'll see.

I think Coldhands is coming. Right before Ghost killed Rast you heard all the ravens shrieking

Yes, really.

I'm surprised there was anything left to burn at Craster's Keep after all the scenery Gorman chewed.

A decent piece right up until describing Burn Gorman as, 'gratingly bad'. Really?

Re: “"Game of Thrones" Season 4, Episode 4: Oathkeeper

apparently HBO spoiled both the books and the show in a recap posted to their site this weekend, explaining exactly who the white walker we saw at the end was.

interesting read, and makes sense that the show would go that direction.

Thanks Eric. I've been waiting for your synopsis. Sorry Toronto misinformed you...let's blame it on Ford.

Re: ““RuPaul’s Drag Race” Season 6, Episode 10: Drag My Wedding

The show is very rehearsed and I have no problem with that. I believe it is all done to protect the queens' feelings. I think Ru tells the eliminated queen in private before it is announced on stage and the contestant rehearses his reaction. It's a very kind and collaborative way to run a reality contest show.

Re: ““RuPaul’s Drag Race” Season 6, Episode 10: Drag My Wedding

Wanted to point out 2 things: the season
6 queens seem so nice that I have been sad when each of them has left. And I enjoyed the twerk painting mini challenge this episode because it gave the queens a chance to exercise their art appreciation skills. Bianca did a great job with her Sister Wendy influenced analysis.

Re: “Love projected

Ive noticed that when that venue has a well executed special event, it can be the hottest night in town, but most nights, its fairly dead and quite uninteresting. the place has all the potential, but often misses the mark.

Re: “"RuPaul's Drag Race" Season 6, Episode 11: Glitter Ball

Can you say – jumped the shark.

This is the same reason I stopped watching season 1 when Ongina was sent packing only to get caught up during the All Star competition.

So it comes to bad production decisions. Reality producers think that conflict and contrived controversy are what make game show, when in fact it’s sympathy and compassion, and how the viewer relates to the contestant, some call it humanity.

To keep someone who scored low 4 times and won a ‘head in the box’ challenge is not just confusing buy insulting to the shows fans and the other contestants.

God bless Ms. Lake, a big girl with talent and charm. Yet to keep her and discard if not dismiss someone who’s done better is degrading to the contestant and fans alike.

Also:

1) Bianca calling Ben a C#*t was incredibly vulgar, even for a drag queen. At the viewing party I was at there was the same audible gasp at that as there was at Ben’s elimination. And to make it worse was the judges laughing at it! This wasn’t some cabaret put down, it was pure back stage, back stabbing evil.

2) Michelle does a web series called ‘Whatcha Packin’, where she sweetly interviews the queens right before they go home. She’s as sweet as can be, well compared to her persona on the judging panel that is. How come none of that comes thru during the competition?

3) Michelle also states that she and Santino don’t get to see what goes on back stage and in the Untucked Lounge. A – I don’t believe a word of that, and B – Maybe they should.

4) In years past it was…”but do they have what it takes to be the next supermodel?” Now it’s…“there’s a $100K at stake, do they deserve it?” Yeah it’s a contest but that attitude skews the behavior of the contestants and apparently the judges.

5) Another week of Adore’s “This sh$t is getting real.” Yeah, duh.

And one more - What up with Moose Knuckle/Puppy Puss/Magda Gabor and her sailor suit? They can't be running low on judges already. Wouldn't a former show winner have more cred?

Re: “Theater Review: GRRC's "Agnes of God"

Had the pleasure of catching the show on opening night....truly outstanding acting by these three terrific actors. A very though-provoking, moving, emotional show to be sure!!

Re: “"RuPaul's Drag Race" Season 6, Episode 11: Glitter Ball

I am EXTREMELY sad about this episode. I just couldn't believe it and still can't. As some of you pointed, each queen is a character and it's not fair or right to FORCE them into different personas every single week. All the challenges are themed and they're gonna deliver their own version of it. Darianne has the same kind of fabric since her first episode, as well as her looks, with only color switches and despite being shady has not shown much personality. Bianca is creative and talented but she's also "getting old", AS THEY ALL ARE. They have limited time and materials. Courtney ALWAYS gets the same critiques and Adore...I'm sorry, her walk, style and attitude that they keep praising is also repetitive with a plus that if Bianca hasn't helped her on quite some challenges, she'd be a total mess repeatedly as she was on episode 1. All of the queens hang on to their basic which means they should be judged by their proximity to the theme and the way hair, makeup, dress and attitude are served. Ben didn't deserve this bottom 2 and certainly did NOT deserve to sashay away. This show is dying for me. The editing is nasty and it's obvious Bianca is gonna win...altough ones by her side at top three won't deserve it.

I can't believe Ben left!!! Absolutely ridiculous!!! Courtney does not belong! They keep saying how people need to be versatile and we only get one thing from Courtney. She is gorgeous but one sided and a bad attitude. Darian and Courtney need to go and BRING BACK BEN!!!

Re: “"RuPaul's Drag Race" Season 6, Episode 11: Glitter Ball

Jessica: It's generally bad form in a lipsynch to remove a wig or shoes. First, it destroys the female illusion that is central to drag. Second, it also lowers the degree of difficulty significantly. For instance, in the Adore vs. Joslyn lipsynch, Adore pulled a move where she jump from her knees up to her feet. That is an impressive feat -- but as a drag queen, she should have been doing so while wearing high heels. (And S2 winner Tyra Sanchez DID do that move IN heels, and Ru pointedly said in the S2 reunion that that move is what cemented Tyra at the head of the pack for her. It is a very old-school drag-ball maneuver.)

The queens in S3 and S4 fell into a pattern of ripping off their wigs and shoes fairly frequently, and it became predictable and a sloppy. That has been toned down over the past few seasons. I don't know if Ru has ever explicitly said on the show that she expects the queens to keep their kit on during a performance, but she's definitely made statements to that effect outside the show.

Re: “"RuPaul's Drag Race" Season 6, Episode 11: Glitter Ball

Unfortunately, I don't think Dela was bringing enough drama to the show for the producers. I'm sad she left bc I really liked her. Honestly though, I thought her banjee outfit was weak, and I just didn't think her eleganza outfit befitted a ball. And we all know how Darriene did. :-/ However, I actually did like her eleganza...Just my opinion. *Bianca and Adore are my absolute FAVES! I have grown attached to almost everyone on Season 6.*

Great posts. I just have a thought... Has anyone considered that Ru will bring back a queen as she has done several times before? I don't think we have seen the last of Creme this season!

I posted late to the last recap. But, am curious...why is it a big deal to remove shoes during a lip sync?
