Game of Boners: Oh Snow, They Didn't

We’ve reached the end of Season Five of Game of Thrones, and what a slow and meandering journey it’s been! Looking back on the past ten episodes, doesn’t it feel like we watched too much talking and not enough stabbing? (Oh, god. It’s like Frasier all over again.) Doesn’t it also feel like the showrunners owed us a… »6/15/15 9:00am6/15/15 9:00am

Game of Boners: Lost Minds, Lost Virginities

Oh, hey there, daughters of the Harpy! Did you think Game of Boners forgot about you? That we were gonna leave you high and dry? No way! I—QUEEN HARPY—just needed Memorial Day off to lie in the sun and sip on some of Cersei’s special sangria. A tip from the queen herself: replace the fruit chunks with more wine.

Game of Boners: Enter Stoneman

Belieb it or not, we take our television recapping pretty seriously at The Muse via Jezebel dot com. Our goal, typically, is not to simply regurgitate the plot of a television episode that you’ve already watched, but to talk about theme, how things fit together, and ideally provide some insights that you maybe haven’t… »5/11/15 3:00pm5/11/15 3:00pm

Still, nothing—NOTHING—could prepare me for yesterday afternoon… »4/27/15 4:50pm4/27/15 4:50pm

It Took Heaps of Cash to Keep This Game of Thrones Nude Scene Secret

According to fans who've read ahead in the series and won't stop threatening to spoil various plot twists, the next season of Game of Thrones will feature a big, dramatic nude scene—for the purposes of plot, not titillation. And filming it apparently cost a Lannister-sized fortune. (Spoilers ahead.) »10/07/14 12:10pm10/07/14 12:10pm

Game of Boners: Daddy, Daddy, You Bastard, I'm Through

Last night, after calling my dad to wish him a happy Fathers Day, I settled into my couch to watch the season four finale of Game of Thrones and was surprised by a very special holiday episode. The show's characters were also celebrating their dads. The only difference is that they were celebrating Father's Day in the… »6/16/14 7:45pm6/16/14 7:45pm

The Game of Thrones Rape Scene Was Unnecessary and Despicable

Much of last night's Game of Thrones was about taking things that don't belong to you in the most violent, brutal and dishonorable ways possible, whether it's by stealing money, marching on a new territory or — in one particularly cruel scene — raping a woman next to the corpse of her dead son. Per usual, spoilers… »4/21/14 4:00pm4/21/14 4:00pm
