There Are Plenty of Stories Left in THE LEFTOVERS

Apr 23, 2017

I don’t know about you, but I thought perhaps THE LEFTOVERS could have lasted longer than three seasons. Here we are in the midst of the third and final episodes and I’m disappointed in...

Four Episode Titles From Game of Thrones Season Five Revealed

Four Episode Titles From Game of Thrones Season Five Revealed

The first four title of Season Five are here and they reveal a great deal about what will take place in “Game of Thrones,” which is coming out this April. Earlier today, a website titled SpoilerTV revealed four alleged titles for the first episodes of “Game of Thrones.” Later in the day, the Game of Thrones news site, Watchers on the Wall confirmed the titles with their sources,  corroborating that the titles were correct. So, as things stand now, we have good reason to believe that these are truly the titles for the first four episodes. Dying to know what they are? Here they are: Episode 501: “The Wars to...

Looking: “Looking for a Plot”

Looking: “Looking for a Plot”

  “That’s not my coffee. I never got my coffee.” I’ve said it once and I’ll probably say it every single review but one of the things I love the most about this show is how realistic it is. People deal with death differently and the majority of the time, it’s not in the most conventional way. Doris’ reaction to her father’s death, the cold tone and distracted comment about her breakfast drink, was so heartbreaking and beyond real. I also love the fact that Patrick, who is normally so wrapped up in his own stuff (which he even playfully mentioned in the car) showed up to support her, even if all he can do is offer neck...

Togetherness: “Party Time”

Togetherness: “Party Time”

Like a train wreck waiting to happen, this episode showcases all sorts of funny and weird shenanigans. Some are hilarious, some bizarre and some, epic failures. Every relationship portrayed this episode is flawed. Can they be repaired? Should they be repaired? Brett and Michelle look like a couple who have everything under control for their daughter’s birthday – people are coming over, food is laid out, house is cleaned and Aunt Tina is going to set up the biggest, bounciest air castle (to get new clients and to show that she has some sort of serious business endeavor). That is until Brett states that he is interested in going to...

Richard Madden Warns of Unexpected Death in Season Five

Richard Madden Warns of Unexpected Death in Season Five

Warning: Season Five and Book Spoilers After his dramatic death as Robb Stark in Game of Thrones Season 3, Richard Madden has moved on to more family friendly entertainments like Disney’s upcoming live-action Cinderella flick–however the actor still seems to know a lot about what happens behind the scenes during the filming of Game of Thrones. In a recent interview, the actor was quickly diverted from any talk of his role as Prince Charming to the more R-rated subject of Game of Thrones.  Madden happily obliged, and indulged in conversation about the show–most notably foreshadowing an unexpected death in the...

Invitations to the Set of VEEP & SILICON VALLEY 2015

You do all know there are other shows coming in April to accompany GAME OF THRONES, right? The back-to-back comedic exploits of VEEP, entering its Season Four, and SILICON VALLEY, entering Season Two, will also rule the night. Recently those two comedies each offered up an Invitation to the Set that we will share here as a way of getting viewers excited for the return of both shows. HBO often sends a camera onto the set of its shows so fans can catch work in progress and get a sneak peek of what is happening in the series and what is on the minds of the performers and creators of a given show. Sometimes little surprises can be revealed....

HBO Offers New Insight Into Dornish Weapons (Video)

A recent special feature released yesterday on the blog Making Game of Thrones, has revealed more about upcoming Dornish characters and the weapons that make them so deadly.

Girls: “Ask Me My Name”

Girls: “Ask Me My Name”

So my predictions last week that Hannah was perhaps on the up have been spectacularly shattered in this week’s episode ‘Ask Me My Name’. We start with Hannah talking to a group of wide eyed teens (amongst the class is Maud Apatow; the beautiful daughter of Judd Apatow and Leslie Mann who is growing up really well) about how the story of Oedipus is where the concept of the MILF has come from. She is confidently talking to this class like she has been doing it for years and upon her arrival into the teacher’s lounge, we learn she is working as a substitute teacher. Here she meets a man called Fran, also a teacher, who rather...

THE JINX: Chapter 04 “The State of Texas Vs. Robert Durst”

THE JINX: Chapter 04 “The State of Texas Vs. Robert Durst”

Overview: 2003. With Robert Durst on trial in Galveston, TX for the 2001 murder of Morris Black, many of those involved in earlier investigations – including Westchester DA Jeanine Pirro and Kathie Durst friends Gilberta Najamy and Eleanore Schwank – are convinced that a conviction is all but assured.  Instead, Durst’s attorneys, led by ace lead counsel Dick DeGuerin, surprises the court with an unlikely first witness and a brilliant self-defense strategy. Dramatic footage from the trial, combined with revealing recent interviews with Robert Durst, punctuate the courtroom drama that led to a starting verdict. We start with a...

Update: VICE PRINCIPALS Starts Production Soon

Update: When we first ran this post we were not aware of whom Danny McBride’s co-lead was going to be in VICE PRINCIPALS and now we know that it is – Walton Goggins (pictured).

Game of Thrones S5: Visions, Bloopers & Music

With the end of the week upon us, and the end of February not far behind, the premiere of Game of Thrones looms ever nearer. The 44 days spanning between now and the first episode of Season Five may seem like forever, but fortunately, HBO is keeping is us well-stocked in the news department of late, which certainly helps make the time go by faster. It’s been a busy week for Game of Thrones, with the Season 4 Boxset breaking new records and the  release of the IMAX Experience in the U.K. Still, there is a bit more news to account for before we wrap up the week.
