What Your ASoIaF/GoT Problematic Fave Says About You
Tywin Lannister: You put a lot of stock into someone’s reputation. You’re interested in cults of personality. You wish you could be a bad ass take no nonsense say what you mean sort, but you are probably female, or otherwise too afraid of societal pushback. You either read celebrity gossip mags or a lot of historical accounts of people like Napoleon or Alexander the Great.
Randyll Tarly: You are probably a man, or just interested in views on gender and you appreciate the look into the mind of a person who adheres to strict gender roles. You appreciate rigidity and structure. You probably do not have children. You like anti-heroes. You have headcanons that aren’t accepted by the majority of your fandom but you will defend to the death anyway. You like realism, maybe a bit too much.
Stannis Baratheon: You pay more attention to what someone says than what they do. You enjoy listening to great orators. You like to read about great women in history and people ‘ahead of their time’. You write long tumblr discourse posts. You might get taken in by politicians. You like settings with old-timey aesthetics but social justice mores set either in the future or an alternate past. You are a feminist.
Joffrey Baratheon: You had a crush on Draco Malfoy as a teenager. You either are or are close to someone who has experienced abuse. You hate abusive parents and you have a lot of thoughts and advice on how to raise a child properly. You have a vested interest in stopping family violence, you might make tumblr posts about this. You are an adult now. You are probably one of those people who looks back at Harry Potter and thinks “they were only children!”
Robert Baratheon: You are or were a frat boy at some point. You unironically enjoy ‘bro-mances’. You probably think Rhaegar is a rapist. You don’t want anyone to sit the iron throne at the end of the series. You want to break the wheel. You probably don’t have strong political opinions, but if you do you are some degree of anarchist, or at least laissez-faire. You like bears.
Viserys Targaryen: You like woobie villains. You like a tragic backstory on your boys and pretty soulful eyes. You like AUs and alternate canon fic. You probably write fanfic, but probably not for game of thrones. You may be a teenager. If you are a teenager you are probably very open, but if you are not you are probably very reserved. You are a Targaryen stan.
Aerys Targaryen: You are probably mentally ill. You probably make tumblr posts about mental illness and the stigma of it. You yell at the television whenever a crime is blamed on mental illness. You watch Criminal Minds, but you probably do so critically. Either that or you are a psych major who likes to diagnose fictional characters with disorders neither you or anyone you know have.
Ramsay Bolton: You have read Fifty Shades of Grey one too many times or you are a total edgelord there is no in-between. You probably ship Thramsay. If you are a book reader you probably complain about the show’s portrayal of the Ramsay storyline and them making him too pretty. You like him the way he is. You find over the top villainy refreshingly honest. You don’t like to beat around the bush.
Cersei Lannister: You are a feminist. You got tired of everyone bashing Cersei while giving all the above characters a pass. You roll your eyes whenever anyone tries to blame this on anything other than Cersei being a woman. You probably also like Sansa and Catelyn. You will come to the defense of anyone unjustly attacked even in real life. You believe in equality and fairness. You defend the ACLU and probably know a fair bit about the law.
Theon Greyjoy: You love redemption arcs. Just love them. You probably watch cartoons as an adult. You still go on TV tropes. Don’t worry, I won’t link you.
Roose Bolton: I don’t even know. You are a mystery. No one knows you. Maybe you don’t even know yourself.
“I think if Henry and I did that film and then a superhero film
straight after, people might start to wonder about us…” Hammer joked. So
is there some (bro)mance in the air? “I wish! God, he’s dreamy!"
I have no idea if it’s canonically correct, but I imagine Diego being a head taller than Kier. And they’re going to be best buds, ok. They’re going to be bffs. Everyone will be jealous of how amazing they are together. I have so many headcanons, I need the bromance to happen!
review board unanimously approved your reinstatement.
you! Thank you, so much.
is a condition, however, and you may not like it, but it’s non negotiable.
I tell you the narrative about the other agent in a strikingly similar
situation to yours, which means you will automatically find yourself in a
hostage situation on your next mission.
would you say that? I don’t see how…
Agent: Foreshadowing, Dr. Reed. The writers love foreshadowing. That and we need to give you a way to prove yourself
so the fans won’t be concerned that we’ve somehow seriously altered your
character or that we’re setting you up to leave the show.
when this inevitable hostage situation occurs, remain calm and remember, it’ll
all work out - our ratings can’t afford to lose you. We’ve already taken enough heat over ending
your decade long bro-mance with Agent Morgan.
Spencer: No, sir, he…
We were just friends, closer to family, really. There wasn’t any kind of romance between us.
‘Psych: The Movie’ Is Real, as the ‘Psych’ Cast Reunites for a New Case This Christmas
Christmas has come early for the “Psych”-os: USA Network confirms that it has ordered a “Psych” reunion movie, set to premiere this December.
James Roday, who stars as fake psychic detective Shawn Spencer, and Dulé Hill, who plays his childhood best friend and business partner Burton “Gus” Guster, are back for “Psych: The Movie.” The 2-hour event takes place three years after the events of the show’s 2014 finale.
Creator Steve Franks co-wrote the movie with Roday and will also direct it. Also back: Timothy Omundson (Lassiter), Maggie Lawson (Juliet), Corbin Bernsen (Henry) and Kirsten Nelson (Chief Vick). Production begins on May 24.
“Psych” premiered in 2006 and ran for eight seasons. According to USA, the film will follow the pals gathering during the holidays after a mystery assailant targets one of their own.
“‘Psych’ is a beloved part of our USA family, and what better time to reunite with family than the holidays.” said Chris McCumber, President, Entertainment Networks for NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment. “Steve and James have taken the unique brand of comedy that the series honed over eight seasons and packed it in to a two-hour movie that successfully rekindles one of the greatest bro-mances in television history.”
Jeff Wachtel, Chief Content Officer, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment, and President, Universal Cable Productions, credited the show’s rabid fan base – who affectionately call themselves “Psych-os” – for keeping the franchise alive.
Franks, Roday and Hill executive produce the film with Tagline’s Chris Henze and Kelly Kulchak.
James Hathaway: the world-music playing, rowing (Attaway Hathaway!), public-school-cheek-meets-lofty-Cambridge
cleverclogs is the perfect complement to the down to Earth Lewis. Hathaway is The Gold Standard in
Angsty, Priesty Detectives. (Even the
New York Times said in their review of Granchester that Sidney Beckett is no
Hathaway.) Buzzfeed’s list of the PBS’s
hottest hunks placed Laurence Fox’s Hathaway at #1. “And he knows Latin too!” squeaked Liv Nash,
who like the rest of us, has a hard time containing herself where Hathaway is
James quipped to Robbie in the pilot that he was too
frivolous to be a priest, but we realize later that he could not reconcile his
faith in God with the teachings of the church that led his gay friend Will to
commit suicide. Unfortunately, that was
not the beginning of James’ existential flu.
He grew up on the Mortmaigne estate as the son of the groundskeeper.
Robbie would come to learn the awful truth that children on the estate- possibly
including James- were molested by the Lord of the manor, Augustus
Mortmaigne. Indeed, Robbie knows James
so well that he knows when James isn’t really on holiday but instead is roped
into do-goodery with his churchy pals. I was surprised that Lewis never knew about his sister, Nell, a new character in
series 9. (Nope, I didn’t buy that part at
I tend to believe that Robbie and James’ relationship is a
father/son type bro-mance, but certainly the people who ship them romantically
are not imagining it either. One of the
best scenes of the series is where the headmaster of the school they are
investigating in Expiation thinks they are a same sex couple seeking to enroll
their child. Hathaway says, “darling, I
think we should explain…” Robbie even
admits half-jokingly that in his retirement he and James could sail away on a
dinghy together, except that James is too young. In any event, Laurence Fox’s twitter feed certainly
perpetuates the ship. Believe me, as an
American, Lozza’s Donald is the ONLY Donald I want to see or hear from for the
remainder of the US election cycle. If only that could be the case!
I was happy for Sergeant Hathaway to move away from policing
at the end of the “final” episode Intelligent Design as it seemed to make him so miserable. Hathaway thanks Lewis
just as Morse asked Strange to do on his death bed so many years earlier. It was a tear-jerking-in-a-good-way ending to
a show… and then the show came back for two more series. I still don’t know what to make of Inspector
Hathaway, but the “final, and we really mean it this time, final” episode ends
with James looking to the future.
sees my dad post “Christian men I see in counseling are almost always without “bro-mances:” intimate Christ-centered, non-sexual, David-Jonathan relationships. This places too much pressure on the wife to meet needs that only a man can.”
