Actress Scarlett Johansson has been working on her own film, and realized that during the career she loves to set new challenges. "I would like to direct a movie. On my project, I'm working for years and I think that's really good. I want to do things that challenge me, mentally and emotionally. I like to do things that cause fear in me," said Scarlett Johansson for Empire magazine.
We knew that celebrities often resort to various rigorous diets to achieve the line which will be fantasizing women around the world, but this is too much! Beautiful actress Anne Hathaway, got the "command" to lose weight for eight kilograms in just three weeks, and she promptly threw on an extremely rigorous (and health-threatening) diet.

There are really no winners in the Dan Harmon/ Chevy Chase feud, are there? Just two glistening, pale gladiators who need to get their thyroids checked, trying to draw first blood and making quality television. In case you’re having a hard time keeping track of who calling who a fat f*ck on the Community set at any given moment, I broke it down for you below, real simple-like:
Nooooooooooo! Or maybe, yes? Season 4 sans Pierce would be but a shell of its former self. On the other hand, Pierce has basically become a grotesque, venomously racist parody of Chase, right? Is it time for Pierce Hawthorne to get permanently spirited away into the air ducts by Annie’s Boobs? What does Dan Harmon eat every day that his heart is going to explode before he turns 60? Whatever it is, I bet it’s so creamy and delicious…
Oh, and in case you were wondering who in God’s name is writing this, my name is Halle Kiefer and I blog over at TheFABlife. I’m going to be pitching in for a while (i.e. mopping up Dan’s tears) now that Michelle has gone on to that great writer’s room in the sky… L.A. is in the sky, right? I have so, so much to learn.
It’s the Game Of Thrones Season 2 Premiere, entitled “The North Remembers,” and my God, I knew I was excited for this show to come back, but once that theme music kicked up, I’m not gonna lie, it did have a sliiiight erectile effect on me. And that wasn’t just because 7 naked characters were banging the ‘HBO Original Programming’ logo.
Game Of Thrones is back you guys!!! Tyrion! Robb! Direwolves! Baby Dragons! Vagina Elves! The entire cast of Ocean’s Thirteen added and each one claiming the throne!
There’s even some NEW CITIES in the opening credits:
Alright, lock up your wife-daughters, and let’s teach this Recap how to make plausible orgasm sounds…
After a ‘Previously’ segment that conveniently reminds us we’ve forgotten 60-70% of who everyone is on this show (The ‘Starks’?? Wha???), Season 2 opens on King Joffrey Baratheon-Reallylannister and his spirit-neutered bride Sansa Starke-Baratheon-Reallylannister enjoying a marathon of fights to the death in honor of the king’s “Naming,” because that’s the only way anyone can celebrate anything in this world (Birthdays, Holidays, Bar Mitzvahs = Fights to the death then sex with the loser’s corpse.) Sansa is noticeably broken and speaks only minimally and super-delicately so as not to upset Joffrey (“You are truly the well-struckiest, darling King,”) and it’s clear right off the bat that Joffrey hasn’t suddenly become not-a-giant-d*ck in the GoT offseason.
Joffrey is met in the Royal Corporate-Suite by Tyrion (congrats to Peter Dinklage for getting his name first in the credits!), who explains that he’s been sent to King’s Landing to act as Hand Of The King in Tywin Lannister’s absence, which pisses off Joffrey because it is anything:
Tyrion then relishes the opportunity to sit in on a meeting of the King’s Landing ‘Small Council’ and break the same news to his sister, then makes fun of her for allowing Anya Stark to escape and Ned Stark to be decapitated (then he looks into the camera and goes “I sure DIDN’T SEE THAT COMING.”) Cersei knows that Robb won’t trade Jaime for just Sansa and A Stark To Be Named Later, so she prioritizes a countrywide search for the escaped Anya.
Tyrion will remain in King’s Landing for the time being to ‘advise’ Joffrey, which probably isn’t a bad move considering how young every ruler on this show is now:
Meanwhile, Robb Stark visits with Jaime Lannister, who’s apparently been sitting in that prison in real-time since the last season ended:
Robb informs Jaime of his plans to separate the northern kingdoms from the rule of King’s Landing, to which Jaime responds that his father will never negotiate, allowing Robb to rattle off a string of badass responses (“Three victories doesn’t make you a conqueror…” “Better than three defeats…” then shove a direwolf in Jaime’s face:
Robb then sits down with his commanders to discuss his peace terms for the Lannisters, though he knows they won’t accept them; it’s basically more of an intimidation tactic / rock band’s backstage concert demands:
A conspicuous red comet streaks across the sky and is visible from multiple locations, which Bran’s magically-inclined caretaker interprets as a sign of the arrival of dragons (though the mystical nature of the comet is debunked slightly when it flies by the beach trailing a banner for an all-you-can-eat crab buffet.) Indeed, the comet does signify that dragons have returned (way to watch the Previously segment, comet), but the recipient of said dragons, Daenerys Targaryen, is struggling in the desert:
The dragons are too small to fight or go off on their own, and as the group grows increasingly desperate for water, a horse collapses:
Daenerys and her companion, Sir Richard Carlisle from Downton Abbey, send three men in different directions desperately looking for civilization:
Speaking of claims to the throne, we also get a sneak peek of a new throne-seeker, Stannis Baratheon, the previously mentioned but never-before-seen brother of Robert Baratheon, and former H.R. Director at Dunder-Mifflin:
Stannis believes he has the strongest claim to the throne but also possesses the weakest army at the moment, so he’s joined forces with a weird fire witch who leads a big fiery ritual to convert Stannis and his followers over to some different gods (Fire-o, the god of Fire!) Stannis’ goofy-looking advisor is uneasy, though, believing this witch will lead Stannis and his men into a battle they can’t win:
Oldie attempts to convince Stannis’ trusted friend Davos Seaworth to talk him out of this approach, and when Davos resists, the old man attempts to poison the witch Melisandre by drinking the poison himself then handing it to her and dying WAY before she even starts to drink it:
The poison doesn’t affect Melisandre, so if you’re keeping score at home, Random Extras attempting to poison Important Characters on GoT are currently 0-for-2.
Stannis then sits down with his advisors to draft up a letter to all the kingdoms declaring that Joffrey isn’t Robert’s true son but a child of Lannister incest. Like a true editor, he also makes sure to needlessly nit-pick the writer’s letter by striking “beloved” Brother Robert, adding “king slayer” to describe Jaime, and asking if the writer can somehow work the Doritos Twitter account into the letter because they’ve been in touch with the Frito Lay people and would really like to work on a cross promotion.
Beyond The Wall (hang in there, Recappies, only 37 more main characters to get through!), Jon Snow and his band have traveled north only to find abandoned village after abandoned village before eventually encountering a man named Craster, who lives by having sex with his own daughters so they birth him more daughters so he can have sex with them, making him at least the 9th most despicable character on this show. Jon takes offense to being referred to as a “Southerner” (I’m from Pittsburgh and have been called that by people in New York, so I can sympathize with the bastard), but Jon’s commander pulls him aside afterwards and chews him out for insulting their host, telling him “Have you never seen that t-shirt that says Lead, Follow, or Get Out Of The Way???”
Back at King’s Landing, the rumor of Joffrey being the product of Lannister-incest is being whispered in the streets (no thanks to the Gawker Blind Item “Which Current King Of King’s Landing Is Actually The Product Of Blonde-On-Blonde Sibling F*ckery?”), and when the Queen Regent visits Baelish to ask for his help in finding Anya, he can’t help but bring it up:
The Queen re-asserts her power over Baelish by nearly having the guards cut his throat, and taunts his claim that “Knowledge is power” by replying “Power is power.” Baelish is like, “Nononono, you’re totally right, I was just quoting the Mortal Kombat 3 arcade game, your highness.”
The Queen then meets with Joffrey again to discuss trading for Jaime, and Joffrey brings up the incest
rumor obvious truth again, and, correctly realizing that King Robert probably had dozens of bastard sons with more of a claim to the bloodline than his own, Joffrey asks his mom how many people Robert f***ed when he got tired of her (teenagers!)
The episode concludes in standard Game Of Thrones fashion: With soldiers violently slaughtering dozens of babies. (“They were just…Younglings…” – Yoda). How do the soldiers instantly know which kids were Robert’s? Was his philandering that public-knowledge, or are they mostly taking educated guesses? (“Check out that kid humping a bottle of wine! Get him!”)
All in all, a solid Game Of Thrones premiere: We met new characters, we got reacquainted with our old favorites, and even in a moderately-paced set-things-up episode, we had plenty of baby-killing and former-American-president-poisoning and orgasm-instruction and incest rumors and we’re pretty much set up for another insanely watchable season of craziness.
How many more episodes before the Dragon and the Direwolf hook up and make tv history? Any number is TOO MANY.
