WILD WILD PODCAST #25: Game of Thrones Season 5 Finale Stabs us in the Heart while Ted 2 Stabs at our Sensibilities

GoT-S5E10-Cersei

I’ve seen certain movies that start out like this.

 

Welcome to the WILD WILD PODCAST #25

 Join Geek Outlaw and Spunky Destructor as they discuss the “back 9″of Game of Throne’s fifth season, including the finale that shocked the world. On a lighter, yet more vulgar, note, to our own astonishment, we also talk in-depth about another of this summer’s sequels, Ted 2.

It was the stab felt round the world. In less time than it takes to say “for the watch,” millions of die-hard Game of Thrones fans had their world turned upside-down and then had their insides gutted for good measure, while watching the season five finale of the series. There have been more twists, turns, deaths, and odd sexual encounters in George R.R. Martin’s medieval free-for-all than there are cars in Jay Leno’s airport hangar garage; however, everything seems to pale in comparison to the event which will lead into what should be a very interesting season six. It was an incident so monumental that one could easily forget about the two extraordinarily strong episodes preceding it. Both Spunky Destructor and I were shocked beyond mere words (even the easy ones!).

When the internet goes down, no one’s a winner.

 

On the other end of the spectrum, Spunky and I also recently took in Ted 2, a film that consisted of more verbal than violent vulgarity. We took in the original Ted together and we were both pleasantly surprised by the flick. In contrast, even though there were laughs, Ted 2 had a “heavier” plot which brought up some political conversation during the podcast. Ok, I brought up the political innuendo, but my beloved co-host did add her own thoughts to make it an interesting and timely discussion which tied into current events. It’s a nice little chat that goes a little deeper than most on the Wild Wild Podcast, and while we tried our best not to insult anyone’s sensibilities either way, we figured you can’t lose too many listeners when you don’t really have many to begin with. Thus we kept it in there, in case the one or two of you (literally) find it entertaining.

So, what exactly does an epic fantasy series and a talking teddy bear have in common? With the one possible exception of vulgar language – more so with the stuffed toy surprisingly – one would be hard pressed to even speculate why I’d even lump entertainment like Game of Thrones and Ted 2 together in the same podcast. Why do geeks sleep overnight on the pavement of San Diego to watch a panel of celebrities unveil a pre-teaser to their favorite show? Because they can. Well, that and they are also borderline insane. (I should know; I’m one of them.)

 

Ted 2 GO

Which Outlaw with one thumb was trying to give Ted 2 a slightly average review… this one!

 

Seriously though (but not actually) the Wild Wild Podcast is usually such a random mash-up of non-connected topics that we felt this eclectic mix of media would fit right into the show’s catalog of episodes. On that semblance of wishful thinking, I leave you all to our extra special, super-double-sized episode of The Wild Wild Podcast. Don’t forget to tip your podcasters.
