He's good at playing creeps. But he's very charming and attractive when he's not being so good at playing creeps. The first two guys have barely appeared in the show. I had no idea how big a profile any of these people would have when I made the list! I think Kit Harington would probably go up a couple of places if I were doing the list now. He's really ridiculously dreamy. Richard Madden hasn't had anywhere near as much chance to shine. Like everyone else on this show, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau does not benefit from a bad dye job.

Comment on Throne A Bone: The Men of Game of Thrones. by kalman http://www.thepostgameshow.com/?p=1332&cpage=1#comment-67323 kalman Sat, 04 Jun 2011 22:33:13 +0000 http://www.thepostgameshow.com/?p=1332#comment-67323 I read this back when you posted it, but was eager to re-read it now that I've watched the show (actually I've watched almost all the eps that have aired twice now) and have been burning through the audiobook during the sad 6 days of the week when it is not on. Still, I didn't know who the hell the first 2 characters on your list were and so had to look them up. Harry Lloyd, while probably a perfectly nice guy, plays such a repellant eel, that your glowing review of him seems almost comical (although he does play it well, so point Wheeler I guess.) I think Kit Harrington outfoxes Richard Madden in the actual show, a little scruff and curling black locks do a lot for the guy, but maybe I'm looking for something different than you are. I don't know what Nicolai Coster-Waldau's been in before but I can't take him seriously. He looks so much like Dennis Leary Lite, that it's comical and distracting whenever he's on screen. Also his name is Jaime. I'll take Renly over Jaime any day. One thing I think we can agree on though, Dinklage kills it. A little peroxide in no way diminishes the man's charms.

XD I'm happy you watch this show, because as a big fan of the books I'm very curious to read your opinion. I don't know what HBO will do, but Martin's story is exactly like your intuition tells you: dark, sordid, ambitious and totally EPIC. ^^ I've seen the 1st episode and I think HBO did a great work so far, several people who have reviewed the 6 episodes say the next ones are even better. About the casting (which is really amazing, even more when you already know the characters), the ones who impressed me the most in the 1st episode are Dinklage, Coster-Waldau & Lloyd.

Comment on Let Them Eat Beefcake by whitesycamore http://www.thepostgameshow.com/?p=1233&cpage=1#comment-26019 whitesycamore Tue, 14 Dec 2010 15:54:23 +0000 http://www.thepostgameshow.com/?p=1233#comment-26019 I'm well aware that beefcake is a specific type of male erotica, but it seems that you have different boundaries for what constitutes beefcake than I do. However, I agree with the main thrust of this article - I can't help but think that the people who say male and female comic characters are equally sexualised just have no clue what a sexualised man actually looks like.

Beefcake is not a blanket term for all male erotica; it's a specific type. I absolutely agree that submissive does not necessarily equal feminine. I never said otherwise. In fact, I would strike the 'necessarily' from your statement. Submissive does not equal feminine.

Beefcake is not submissive. Even when the guy is beaten, bruised, or tied to a chair, he should be confident and defiant.

Beefcake guys may offer a knowing sneer or a glowing smile, but they do not offer themselves up the way cheesecake girls do. Rather, they present themselves. That’s a subtle but important difference. They are still there to be looked at, but they’re not there to be taken.

Comment on Glee: The Alignment Chart by Jeff http://www.thepostgameshow.com/?p=1265&cpage=1#comment-25037 Jeff Thu, 09 Dec 2010 02:17:47 +0000 http://www.thepostgameshow.com/?p=1265#comment-25037 I gave up on Glee pretty early on this season, but I'd put Kurt at Chaotic Neutral (some of his actions when his mom and Finn's dad first got together weren't particularly great, as well as his earlier attempts at looking straight at Mercedes' expense), Shu as Chaotic Good...and from what I have seen of this season, the writers keep flipping both Rachel and Sue between Lawful Neutral and Lawful Evil. I'd also throw Sandy Ryerson (Stephen Toblowsky's character) in there as Neutral Evil, and bump Santana up to Chaotic Neutral with Puck. In fact, I think a good chunk of the teen cast could qualify as Chaotic Neutral, which is probably why I think Glee feels (or used to feel) emotionally authentic despite being absolutely unrealistic.
