Game of Thrones is back! *spoilers* We have a heated debate over whether Jon Snow or Sansa was right about the Umbers and Karstarks. Then, we speculate about Euron's gift and killing dragons. We also discuss the theme of subverting fantasy tropes and whether the good guys' winning streak has gone on too long.

After covering Game of Thrones, we talk about the influence of Twin Peaks season 1. We also look at Chopped Junior and note how the kids are so darned nice, and then we talk about the fact that a Candy Crush TV show exists.

HOT PIE!!! We go all out on Game of Thrones S7 episode 2, Stormborn. We follow up on last week's discussions — Euron's Gift, how to kill a dragon, and Sansa vs. John — with the new information from episode two. We also discuss how Arya's becoming more human, speculate about Littlefinger's future schemes (along with the theme of getting beaten up by Starks), talk about the big meeting on Dragonstone, and think about what we're looking forward to in the next episode.

After binge-watching Friends from College, Jason gives his general thoughts, and we also discuss unlikable characters on other sitcoms.

Shawn convinces Jason to jump into Insecure season 2 and he likes it. We go into modern dating (comparing it to Master of None), the show's unique portrayal of awkwardness, and the ways it shows the interior thoughts of the main character.

Game of Thrones S7 episode 3 (The Queen's Justice): The return of Bronn! Well, kinda. A big chunk of this episode is devoted to talking about two major themes. First is children and their parents' legacies, discussing Ned/Jon, Twyin/Cersei, and Mad King/Daenerys. Second is the role of information — who knows what and how this affects war and characters' future moves. Other topics we cover are: Jon/Dany shipping, who will ride a dragon, Tyrion's poor win-loss record, and why are Jorah and Theon still alive.

We also discuss the return of Rick and Morty. We debate how dark it is so far, especially with the divorce. Then, we go super pretentious and connect Rick and Morty to existentialism, secular humanism, and modernity.

Jason watched The Defiant Ones, the new Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine documentary on HBO. He gives us a quick summary and tells us who would find it worth watching.

We talk Game of Thrones once again, going into episode 4, The Spoils of War. Does it crack our Top 10 Game of Thrones episodes? We're all in on shipping Dany and Jon, but worry it's being laid on a little too thick. We also discuss Littlefinger and speculate about who's getting stabbed with the dagger. Then, we admire the "Loot Train" battle, and Shawn reveals his Loot Train MVP. We also talk about food supplies, or the lack thereof, for the long winter, and whether Dany did a little too much burnination. Finally, we make our guesses about what will happen next, focusing on the fate of Jaime and a potential Bronn bro-off with Tyrion.

Then, we preview some new shows. Jason is intrigued by Room 104, the Duplass Brother's new anthology on HBO, and unimpressed by Netflix's Ozark, a Breaking Bad-esque drama starring Jason Bateman. But we're both all-in on the wonderfully bizarre Comrade Detective, a fake 80s pro-Communist Romanian detective show featuring the voice of Channing Tatum.

Game of Thrones Episode 705 Eastwatch Deep Dive

We're spinning off our Game of Thrones coverage from the TV Roundup into their own podcast episodes. We try to focus on the themes and characters, not play-by-play recaps, while still keeping it funny. In this episode, we go deep into Game of Thrones Episode 705 Eastwatch. We discuss Gilly's big discovery (10:02), the note Arya finds (15:20), Tyrion and Jaime's reunion (22:25), Dany as villain (26:38), Cersei's pregnancy (28:55), where Sam is going (31:48), and predictions for the Magnificent 7 (33:30).

We go deep into Game of Thrones season 7 episode 6, Beyond the Wall. Despite all the action, our favorite moments were actually the conversations between the Magnificent 7 (0:48). After discussing that, we mourn Viserion (9:51) and speculate about his new abilities. We follow up on shipping Jonerys (17:52) and debate whether or not Dany can break the wheel (21:01). Shawn then debunks the dumb Bran is the Night King theory (25:46), while Jason tries to give the writers the benefit of the doubt with the Arya / Sansa drama (31:43). Finally, we make some wild guesses about what will happen in King's Landing for the finale (40:29).

🚨 Spoilers | GoT 🚨 What’s the gift Euron’s bringing for Cersei?

🚨 Minor Spoilers | GoT 🚨 Did Jon Snow make the right decision? We’re divided on this. GoT typically punishes “honorable” decisions, but it seems there’s a lot more ambiguity this time around. Sansa and Jon each have valid arguments, and both are survivors of their past naiveté. And though there are similarities to Robb Stark ignoring his mother’s advice to spare Rickard Karstark, Jon’s decision to ignore Sansa was based on sound logic, not honor, and his bannermen do seem to support the decision. What do you think?
