Pop Culture Odds and Ends – Game of Thrones is Coming Edition


Thank goodness – the long national nightmare of waiting for Game of Thrones to return is almost over. I always say that the fastest 10 weeks of the year are when Game of Thrones is on and then time seems to stand still until the next new season. This year has been a particularly brutal wait, as the new episodes are starting much later in the year than normal. That legitimately hurt my heart. But now we’re T-minus 4 days and I’m practically giddy with anticipation. I’m going away this weekend, but you better believe that I’ll be back in time to be in front of my TV at 9 pm sharp, hopefully with a glass of the new Ommegang Game of Thrones beer in my hand. This is nonnegotiable, so I hope Amtrak understands that if there are any delays Sunday they may have their own Red Wedding situation on their hands.

But it isn’t Sunday yet, which means that my attention is still focused on giving you the best pop culture roundup possible. As always, I’ve searched high and low to bring you the best that the world of pop culture has to offer. So while you countdown to the time when we are all transported back to Westeros, see what pop culture goodness that you might have missed in the last seven days.
