We are a little late to the party with this news, but now is better than never. Last Friday, the Game of Thrones fan-site WinterIsComing.net discovered through their own due diligence that Misfits actor Iwan Rhoen will join the cast for Season Three. Although the news hasn’t been confirmed by HBO, the guys over at WiC seem to be confident that Rhoen will play the role of Ramsay Snow. Their article includes a link to a recent Facebook photo, which shows him at a pub in Belfast playing pool with other cast members; and further research by WiC revealed that the CV on Rhoen’s...

True Blood 507: “In the Beginning”

Hello again my children! Sorry I was away last week, but I’m back this week full of piss and vinegar over the goings on in Bon Temps. So let’s get to it, shall we? Dealing with the aftermath of Roman’s untimely (but welcome) demise at the hands of Russell has turned out to be quite the interesting turn of events. As soon as Roman was killed, things kicked in to high gear! Can you imagine how much more interesting the past few eps would have been if Roman had met the True Death earlier? That whole Authority/Sanguinista storyline would have had way more juice to get going and...

Larry David Stars in Jerry Seinfeld’s New Web-Series

Larry David Stars in Jerry Seinfeld’s New Web-Series

What’s Larry David up to these days? Well, he appears to have some time on his hands to go play around with his longtime friend Jerry Seinfeld. With no sign of a new season of Curb on the horizon, Larry teamed up with the Seinfeld co-creator to appear in his new web-series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. The premise of the show is simple. Each week, Seiny drives a different classic car to pick up a comedian; then they go have a cup of coffee. The first episode titled “Larry Eats a Pancake” which premiered last week, features Larry David being picked up in a 1952 VW Bug. The jokes...

Game of Thrones: The Sexiest Men in Westeros

Below are five men I wouldn’t mind getting medieval on.  When you look at the wonderful world of Westeros, ‘medieval’ is the word that pretty much sums up their fashion sense, their technology, their transportation and their feudal system. Not to mention their men. As a 30 something healthy woman, I can tell you that several gentlemen from Westeros and Pentos have caught my eye. Before you raise a brow or shake your head, allow me to explain why I find these five men particularly sexy (I watched a few videos on YouTube to get the creative juices flowing, most notable Usher’s...

Summer Documentary – BIRDERS: THE CENTRAL PARK EFFECT

Summer Documentary – BIRDERS: THE CENTRAL PARK EFFECT

Overview: Ah, the most lighthearted documentary in the lineup I suspect and it takes us right into the heart of the urban jungle. If you didn’t know Central Park is a magnet for millions of birds who need a rest stop as they migrate along the Eastern Seaboard twice a year, in spring and fall. Awaiting them is an avid and eager mass of fanatic birdwatchers. Together, avian and hominid co-exist in this 843-acre plot to the delight of both. Expectations: Off the bat I was curious about the title of this film. What exactly does it mean? Is it just a clever phrase to describe bird watching...

Web Gem Wednesday – Comic-Con Edition

Web Gems is intended to give you an entertaining, and hopefully humorous, look at your favorite HBO shows and the actors that make them great. After all, these people aren’t just the characters they play; they are real people, with real interests. They do stupid and rather embarrassing things just like everyone else. But also show us just how awesome they really are. My plan is to bring you a collection of videos, pictures, tweets, and fan creations that I have found while surfing this thing we call the internet. Various sources have been used, multiple avenues explored, and everything...

Summer Documentary: THE TSUNAMI & THE CHERRY BLOSSOM

Overview: On March 11, 2011, the Great East Japan Earthquake struck off the coast of Japan, leaving 15,372 people confirmed dead. Interestingly enough the natural disaster was timed for the springtime emergence of the cherry blossoms that awake the landscape with pink floral explosions. This documentary is called a visual poem and a testimony to the Japanese people. It also was an Academy Award nominee for Best Documentary Short. Expectations: Besides one press release about this documentary I stayed away from any previews or reviews of this piece. My expectations before watching then are...

Aaron Sorkin: The Newsroom is Fantasy

Aaron Sorkin, creator behind HBO’s THE NEWSROOM, was interviewed on National Public Radio the other day. He briefly talked with Terry Gross on his show Fresh Air. Sorkin’s latest work is either a “love it or hate it” type of show that has been criticized as a preachy soapbox for his views and a sensationalized depiction of newsroom journalism. What follows are quotes that explain his approach to THE NEWSROOM a little better. Aaron Sorkin states that he show is a fantasy.

Robert Baratheon: Imagine

“I never loved any of my brothers,” said Robert Baratheon to Ned Stark, the Hand of the King. Imagine if King Robert Baratheon had enjoyed tight knit relationships with both his younger brothers. Imagine if they had all been such a united family that together, they were powerful, ruling the Seven Kingdoms side by side and protecting each other from enemies. Imagine if King Robert had loved his brothers and respected them, so much so that he would have appointed Renly as the political influence. Renly had the common touch with the people. He was handsome, easy going and made it a point to...

Who Really Has Claim to the Iron Throne?

With the death of Robert Baratheon, Westeros has fallen into a conflict the locales have coined as the War of the Five Kings and what modern historians would describe as a succession crisis. While someone is recognized as sitting on the Iron Throne, it is the legitimacy of that person to sit there, the legitimacy of their power to reign, that is questioned by all the various actors we have in play. The world of a Game of Thrones is one where ‘might makes right’ and questions like “Well who made you king?” are answered at the end of a sword , but what if we were to...
