Game Of Thrones returned last Sunday with a premiere that put several storylines in motion for season 3. But with approximately 3,275 main characters, the show couldn’t manage to squeak everybody in. Where was Jaime Lannister (whom we haven’t seen a whole lot of in general since season 1)? What about poor Arya and Bran Stark? And what of that dirty traitor Theon Greyjoy?
When we have questions, we go to the man with all the answers — our resident Game of Thrones expert James Hibberd. James calls in to the newest edition of the InsideTV Podcast to chat all things Westeros. What did James think about the premiere? Which storyline is he loving and loathing the most? And what sort of teases can he give us going forward, including expected arrival times for the aforementioned characters? It’s an epic orgy of geekdom as James tells us everything we need to prep us for the rest of season 3. To listen in, just click on the video player below.
But that’s not all. Jessica Shaw joins me to break down the latest — and greatest — episode of Survivor: Caramoan — Fans Vs. Favorites. We then take a call from the person just booted off the show, Corinne Kaplan. Will Corinne hold back when it comes to her thoughts on island rival Phillip Sheppard? Of course not! It’s Corinne! “I don’t have anything nice to say about him,” Corinne says before launching into plenty of not nice things, like comparing The Specialist to a handicapped child and referring to him as “The Living Miscarriage.” She also shares her bitter disappointment at making it to the merge but not the jury. “That’s when my whole world fell apart,” says Corinne. It’s a must-listen chat for any Survivor fan. (The Survivor discussion and interview begins at 21:30.)

But first, which Game of Thrones storylines are you loving and/or loathing? What did you think about the premiere? And which character not seen in the premiere are you missing the most?
