Pop Culture Odds and Ends – Battle of the Bastards Aftermath Edition


I don’t know about you guys, but I’m still reeling from last week’s episode of Game of Thrones. No spoilers, but that was intense; I had so many emotions running through my system and I couldn’t sit still. At one point, I moved from sitting on my perfectly comfortable couch to sitting on my living room floor, just because that put me closer to the TV. I don’t know why exactly I felt like I needed to be closer to the TV, but it had to be done. Every week I look forward to Sunday nights just so I can watch Game of Thrones and I’m so sad that another season is almost over. I swear, the fastest 10 weeks of the year are when that show is on. And then the very long break begins as we wait for the new season. That bums me out just thinking about it.

But one thing that you can count on to help you through the dark days of no Game of Thrones is the pop culture roundup. It’s been a crazy week and there’s probably a lot you missed, so this is a one stop shop to turn you into a pop culture expert. So kick back, relax and get your pop culture groove on with this week’s roundup.
