7. Game Of Thrones: Behind The Scenes (4/14/12)
Part excuse to dress up its cast in the outlandish Westeros-based costumes, and part cultural analysis of the show’s rampant nudity, this preproduced piece functions on multiple levels. And it succeeds on all of them, between Taran Killam’s gobsmacking impersonation of Kit Harington and Andy Samberg’s overly horny teen show consultant. The piece doesn’t concern itself with the quality of the show so much as the extremely adult nature of the show. Samberg’s teen goes into great detail about the show’s sex scenes, but he describes scenes that actually aired on the program. “And all of that aired on television, after ‘Rango’. It’s HBO!” The term “sexposition”, once the province of weekly reviews of the show, was suddenly thrust (pun intended) onto the national stage.
