We’ve not even crossed over to April just yet, let alone the Game of Thrones Season 5 premiere on April 12, but already the first episodes have begun taking shape. Find out where Arya lands in Braavos with a new clip from HBO’s fifth season epic, and get some early intel on the premiere!
Once upon a time, Game of Thrones creator George R.R. Martin would casually dismiss notions that HBO’s fantasy smash could ever catch up to his novels. Now, with Season 5 burning to debut on April 12, and two books remaining in Martin’s series, Game of Thrones producers confirm the show will inevitably overtake, and spoil at least some material for readers.
Of every Girls season finale, “Home Birth” feels the most final — major changes and life plans happen in the blink of an eye; new lives enter this world and familiar faces fade; and perhaps what makes this episode feel so final is the “six months later” coda, which feels just as unnecessary here as it does in just about any other film or television show. That’s not to say that the conclusion doesn’t have its charms, but it might have been best saved for next season, given the powerful sequence that preceded it.
HBO hilariously (and profanely) reintroduced us to the world of Mike Judge tech comedy Silicon Valley by its first Season 2 teaser, though with April 12 fast approaching, Pied Piper finally has new footage to show. Who’s ready for the efficient prioritization of bros by the first official Silicon Valley Season 2 trailer?
It’s been a good long while since we’ve heard anything substantial from True Detective Season 2, but for those wondering if the borderline-obscene sexuality quotient would remain intact, have we got a treat for you! Season 2 will apparently feature a “colossal orgy sequence,” recruiting real-life porn stars Amia Miley and Peta Jensen for aid.
Earlier today Game of Thrones Season 5 shone a light on over a dozen new photos of the upcoming run, but why stop there? The HBO fantasy drama leaves the world of Westeros behind in its first formal clips of Season 5, along with new photos of Dornish and Lannister characters we’ve yet to meet.
We’re less than a month from the Game of Thrones Season 5 premiere, and even with two trailers under our belt, the old gods and the new have seen fit to tease even more of HBO’s fifth run at George R.R. Martin’s fantasy drama. See a new side of Season 5 with a bevy of new Game of Thrones photos, as well as behind-the-scenes previews and a new trailer!
More and more cord-cutting seems to prove a viable option, especially now that HBO has made the leap to offer its own independent streaming-service, beginning with Apple this spring. Now, a new report suggests Apple will plan its own independent streaming platform for approximately 25 channels, due to become available this fall.
There are certain things we learn how to do as we become more adult: we learn what to share and what not to share and when to share it, and we learn how to fake smiling and being supportive to our friends and loved ones even when it kills us. There are good boundaries and bad boundaries, just as there’s good faking it and bad faking it — navigating these nebulous borders is tricky business, and no one does it gracefully, especially not Hannah (or Tad…or Loreen…).
The imminent arrival of Game of Thrones Season 5 will end our yearly national nightmare for new episodes, but with it comes knowledge that the HBO fantasy drama likely has fewer days ahead than behind. We’ve heard plenty of talk suggesting seven seasons, or even a potential movie wrap-up, but HBO brass and Thrones producers have some intriguing new comments on the matter.
