Game of Thrones is back! *spoilers* We have a heated debate over whether Jon Snow or Sansa was right about the Umbers and Karstarks. Then, we speculate about Euron's gift and killing dragons. We also discuss the theme of subverting fantasy tropes and whether the good guys' winning streak has gone on too long.

After covering Game of Thrones, we talk about the influence of Twin Peaks season 1. We also look at Chopped Junior and note how the kids are so darned nice, and then we talk about the fact that a Candy Crush TV show exists.
