If there were a prize for owning internet hysteria this past weekend, HBO would take the crown. The network debuted both Beyoncé‘s “Lemonade” and the first episode of season six of “Game Of Thrones,” and people haven’t stopped talking about either yet. Well, Screen Junkies has arrived to puncture the “Game Of Thrones” balloon.
After previously taking a shot at the first three seasons of the show, this latest installment focuses on the fourth and fifth, in which TV’s most expensive looking renaissance fair has gone from grounded realism to heavy metal album art. It’s the bandwagon jumping show that everyone loves, even though it seems the writers are either introducing countless new characters or are simply angering fans with the narrative choices. And if all of that isn’t enough to keep track of, even the swords have names!
Take a breather before next week’s episode and watch below.
