The Late Late Show with James Corden/YouTube

HBO's Game of Thrones returned on Sunday, April 14 for its final season, to considerable applause from fans around the world.


The first episode of the show's final season, "Winterfell" gave us the usual diet of sex and violence that we've grown accustomed to after years of watching (not to say this necessarily detracts from the story)!

Keep in mind that we're already eight seasons into one of the most critically acclaimed television shows of all time, which makes it all the more hilarious that Late Late Show host James Corden had his parents watch the show now for the very first time... and their reactions were priceless.

Malcolm and Margaret Corden, who live in High Wycombe in the UK, watched "Winterfell" and had absolutely no idea what was going on. Margaret thought that a mention of Sansa Stark (played by Sophie Turner) was, in fact, a reference to Santa.

When Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Daenerys proceed to make out––all the incest you could ever want from a Game of Thrones episode––in front of a waterfall, Malcolm comments:

"Yeah that was like us two growing up in front of the snowy waterfalls of... Bedfordshire. But I didn't have a dragon to lure you away with. I just had a Vauxhall Viva."

When Samwell Tarly (John Bradley) shows up, Margaret notes the resemblance to her son.

"God, he looks a bit like James when he was younger," she says, prompting her husband to respond:

"I reckon if he auditioned for this show he could play that role. Instead of poncing about in Los Angeles. Get some decent work."

Oh, and did we mention the shock Margaret exhibits when they see Bronn (Jerome Flynn) having sex with several prostitutes?

These two are too good and too pure for this world, and now they have a host of fans who can't get enough of them.





We hope these two continue watching the rest of the season, because five more weeks of their reactions would truly cement 2019's status as an amazing year all around.

There's something seeing a person litter that drives me up the wall. I remember being a kid and being explicitly told to hold on to my trash and not just throw it in the street. As a kid, I distinctly remember being made fun of for not just throwing the bag of chips I'd just eaten or an empty soda bottle into the gutter.

I can't imagine doing that. Why?! We truly treat this planet as if we have somewhere else to go.

When you're in the market for a slew of very specific facts that all fall under the same general theme, the internet really delivers.

Forget streamlined public health capabilities and revolutionized human communication, the true beauty of the internet is all the random, barely useful information you can find when a bunch odd people decide to assemble and swap info.

Working in a doctor's office means helping people when they're at their lowest. Sometimes, that leads to wonderful moments when the patient is thankful for all the advice and care you provided. Other times, it means taking something out of someone's bum.

Turns out, that second one happens a lot more than you might think.

I love movies. The cinema has long been a savior of mine and has given me some of my greatest inspirations. But being an avid film watcher has also made me quite the critic. I can always tell when a movie is worth the money to see in theaters or wait until it's on basic cable with commercials. The signs of mediocrity abound, and sometimes they aren't that difficult to spot.

Redditor u/fjv08kl wanted to know what is obvious about mediocre cinema by asking.... What are some subtle 'red flags' that tell you a movie is not worth watching?
