Flashback Scenes Confirmed for the First Time in Game of Thrones Season 5

Flashback Scenes Confirmed for the First Time in Game of Thrones Season 5

“[For Game of Thrones] we set a rule: No prophecies, dreams or flashbacks. We failed the first two and this season the third. So yes, this season will finally have flashbacks.” That was David Benioff and Dan Weiss revealing that, despite the long-standing rule on the set of the world’s most popular fantasy program, Game of Thrones will now feature flashback scenes starting in season 5. Why is this a big deal? Book readers know that prophecies, dreams and flashbacks play a huge role in fleshing out the world of Westeros.  Much of the lore and information we have on our favorite characters came from flashback chapters within...

Pictures From Dorne: On the Set of Game of Thrones Season 5

There are many, many shooting locations for HBO’s epic fantasy series Game of Thrones.  Each season the producers of the show have to find new , real-world places to represent those in Westeros. Just this year we found out that Spain had been cast to play the role of the hot, dry Oasis of Dorne in Season 5. Many have been wondering about what the location would look like– the costumes, the sets etc. Well the Spanish publication CANAL has some pictures to help curb your enthusiasm until this spring.  Take a look at some images hot off the presses: Aero Hotah makes his case: Ellaria Sand checking in: Jaime Lannister in Dornish...

From the random fees for unknown services to the rate hikes that seem to happen every year– the cost of an HBO subscription has been much more than the $10-$20 price tag.  For those, known as “cord-cutters” HBO has been literally impossible to obtain legally without a cable package of some kind forcing many to turn to piracy. Today the future of television took one step forward as the rumblings of the past few months turned out to be true: HBO will be available as a stand-alone, Netflix-like service in 2015! HBO has been the profitable crown jewel in the portfolio of the mega-media...

A Certain Stark Won’t Return for Game of Thrones Season 5

WARNING: This post may contain what some may consider to be minor Game of Thrones spoilers. Continue at your own discretion. It may be the worst time of year for Game of Thrones fans. It has been six months since the previous Game of Thrones season began and it will be six more months of winter before Game of Thrones season 5 premieres this spring. So every little piece of news is something we fans cling to. Speaking of clinging: we’ve already heard that Bran and Hodor will not be appearing in GoT season 5 and that fact already puts us down one Stark this year. But now we can confirm that another Stark will be out of the picture for a...

The Newsroom Season 3: Teasers and Trailers

UPDATE: The First Full Newsroom Season 3 Trailer “If you have our back then we’re not gonna let you get shot in yours” All good things must eventually come to an end. But why do some end sooner than others? It’s an existential question, to be sure but at times like these– when it almost feels like we’re losing a friend that we ask ourselves these questions. The answer in this case can be summed up with a name: Aaron Sorkin. The creator and writer of The Newsroom is a busy man and simply doesn’t have time for 10 hours of television per year.  Yes, if you hadn’t heard: The Newsroom Season 3 will...
