[music playing, applause] 50 years ago, Neil
Armstrong walked on the moon. And through the

the television on that day, it opened up a universe

  1. The Brienne knighting voiceover on top of the montage, culminating with the Exonerated Five appearing just as Jaime charges her to defend the innocent chef's kiss

  2. God, I am just so happy with how popular Bryan Cranston is now. Breaking Bad FINALLY gave him the recognition he deserved and I couldn’t be more happy for him. He’s one of the BEST actors out there.

  3. Ironic that theatrical movies are taking a backseat to television. Who would've ever thought that could be possible. Last 5 years we have seen major movie celebrities guest appearing in or starring in tv shows. The movie medium has changed.
