Chris Hardwick may have some competition in the cable series wrap-up show game; the host of “Talking Dead” (which recaps AMC’s Walking Dead) and “Talking Bad” (which did the same for the late series Breaking Bad) might sweat a bit if he happened to catch Snoop Dogg and Seth Rogen’s summary of the latest episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones. (And it’s likely that he did catch it, as his Nerdist blog suggested that “Snoop Dogg and Seth Rogen need to recap Game of Thrones All. The. Time.” Hardwick is the CEO of Nerdist Industries, which is actually a thing).
Rogen joined Snoop on the MC’s “GGN Desk” on his Westfest TV YouTube Channel where the conversation turned to the show’s most recent episode.
The clip, which isn’t safe for office viewing due to language — not to mention the smoking of an unidentified (but easy to figure out) substance — shows the two discussing the show with a rapport that suggests they could co-star in their own film, maybe a sequel to Pineapple Express or something.
Snoop’s synopsis (if you’re not caught up on the show, spoilers are ahead in the following paragraph!): “That little midget who’s in love with a whore… his father was gonna hook him up, but he couldn’t shut his a** up, so now he’s gonna have to fight this gigantic mother***er, who his sister the queen got, ’cause they think he killed Joffrey. But he didn’t kill Joffrey, Petyr killed Joffrey!”
If none of the above makes sense to you, you probably haven’t been watching the show (or, again, you’re not caught up), but it basically details the current storyline of Tyrion Lannister, played by Peter Dinklage.
At that point, Rogen actually suggests, “You should do a weekly Game of Thrones update! HBO should put that on before every episode!”
Snoop replies, “I f*** with the Game of Thrones, that’s my s***!” Later, he quotes Littlefinger’s [again, spoiler alert!] immortal line in his best British accent: “I’ve only loved one woman my whole life. Your sister!”
So, if you happen to meet up with Snoop at one of his “wellness retreats” next April 20 if they happen to occur again, catch up on your Game of Thrones and if you chat with him about the show, make sure you film it.
