1. The new HBO Series, Girls is taking the TV world by storm. Touted as the new-age Sex and the City, this TV show is only 3 episodes old but already has critics acclaiming it all over the place!


2. In other news, Hollywood seems to have gotten over its doomsday visions of Youtube, with several major studios entering into a movie screening deal with the video streaming giant. The latest to join the pack is the heavyweight studio, Paramount Pictures with nearly 500 films in the kitty. The deal is only for US and Canada, but someday when the threat of hitting your high speed data limit and being abandoned with a 256 kbp/s connection is a distant nightmare, maybe we might discover this joy of cheap(?) Youtube movies as well.


3. Check out this fascinating Fictional Characters Birthday Calendar! Find out which  fictional character shares your birthday and marvel at the dedication of the people who managed to put this calendar together.


4. Ever watched Dexter or How I Met Your Mother and expressed doubts about their portrayal of blood spatter analysts and architects?  The Atlantic feels your pain and has rated several TV characters for how realistically they portray their jobs.


5. Since no digest is complete without an awesome Game of Thrones link, check out this interview with the author of “The Game of Thrones Cook Book” and maybe you’ll discover the need for an authentic Dothraki recipe for horse heart or a Meereenese dragon bone soup recipe.
