EHG 163: Shooting The Shit On The Game Of Thrones Poomiere

Alan Sepinwall returns to talk table-setting premieres, our pick for the last ruler standing, Justified, and special guest stars!

Production Note: We just recorded through some audio issues. It's fine, just not as crisp as usual.

TV: The Book co-author and Law & Order Fantasy Draft winner Alan Sepinwall is back to talk about Season 7 of Game Of Thrones. Should the show be moving faster, plotwise? Who's going to end up "winning" when all is said and done? Which characters are human memes? And is Ed Sheeran a big baby for deleting his Twitter? After considering these questions, we went Around The Dial with The Challenge, Friends From College, and Ozark before picking off another Canon submission with Justified's "Decoy." Talented (future) parents were our winners, The Biggest Loser was...well, that, and we played with perceptions of opening-credits fame in a hotly contested Game Time. Make sure you pick a rubber mask with holes for your earbuds: it's an all-new Extra Hot Great.
