One of the reasons fans of the original books have been so cool with the major deviations 'Game of Thrones' made from the novels has been the direct involvement of author George R.R. Martin. As a producer and writer on the series, he's been present to give his blessing to the showrunners and wag his fingers at aggressive fans, but not this year. Martin will be sitting out 'Game of Thrones' season 5 altogether to finish writing the sixth book in the series, 'The Winds of Winter.'

'True Detective' season 2 seemed to have its first real break last week with heavy rumors of Colin Farrell and Taylor Kitsch in talks for the lead roles, while additional details were promised in recent weeks. And while we haven't yet heard anything official from HBO, some tantalizing new details and descriptions of Farrell and Kitsch's characters may have made their way to light.
HBO's 'Game of Thrones' season 4 production courted a bit more controversy than usual, specifically with regard to director Alex Graves' thoughts on the multiple rape controversies, and it seems we're in for a shakeup in season 5.
