Hollywood Prospectus Podcast: Game of Thrones, Mad Men, and a Reunion
Reunited and it feels so good! After a little bit of a break, Andy and I got the band back together. Know any cool weddings looking for entertainment? We only know one song, “Rains of Castamere.” Greenwald plays lute, and I play deception. Seriously, folks, we are gathered here today to talk about Game of Thrones, red weddings, Akira Kurosawa, Sam Peckinpah, power grabs, wargs, and how I, for one, always liked Cat Stark [cough]. Andy and I discuss everything that brought us up to the penultimate episode of Season 3, the masterful staging of the wedding from hell, and where the show goes from here.
We wrap up the episode talking Mad Men. It was sort of hard to follow in Walder Frey and Roose Bolton’s footsteps this week, but Matt Weiner gave it a go. Andy and I chatted about Megan and Bob conspiracy theories, the glory of Stan, and whether this season feels a little stuck in the mud. So put your makeup on and make your hair look pretty, and meet us tonight at The Twins.
