It's been a good long while since we've heard anything from the front of 'Game of Thrones' season 5, somewhat understandable given the long road to its spring premiere, but no less taxing given its status as the most off-book season yet. To wit, new production evidence suggests Jaime Lannister at least will take a major detour from the canon for an all-new story in season 5.

This season of 'Boardwalk Empire' has been spiraling down a drain, and the further we go down, the more tightly coiled it becomes. "Devil You Know" posits the obvious question implied by the title, but it also darkly toys with ideas of judgment of character and role reversal, while delivering a tense episode and an emotional beating.
Within every organization -- be it criminal, institutional (hey Gillian!), legal, or social -- exists a hierarchy. There's always someone in a position of power who wants to put the pieces, or the people, in their places. And there's always frustration when those pieces don't fit, or when those pieces turn and try to knock you over to take your place, or upset the balance. In these 'Boardwalk Empire' flashbacks, a younger but slightly older Nucky is climbing up the ladder, still learning about all these moving parts. In present day, an older and wiser Nucky has made some kind of peace with how the tides have changed, and is content with his more minimalistic set of circumstances. Just when I thought I was out, well, you know.
The third and final season of HBO's 'The Newsroom' won't go to presses until November 9, but Will McAvoy and the ACN news team are pulling out all the stops in the first official trailer. Goodbye pretentious copy machines, hello Boston bombing outrage, international espionage and all the Sorkin-y relationship drama you can handle for 'The Newsroom' season 3!
The fifth and final season of 'Boardwalk Empire' seems to have established a pattern within a pattern, where everything feels so scattered. The plot threads are dangling and frayed and yet, slowly a couple of threads find their way together before an abrupt and violent tug jerks yet a couple more into position by episode's end. This season more than any other feels elusive in meaning -- as cold and distant as Nucky himself -- and at the same time, it all reads a bit on the nose.
HBO's 'The Newsroom' has never quite earned creator Aaron Sorkin the acclaim of its TV predecessors, but we'll be sad to see it go all the same when the first of a final 6 episodes premiere on November 9. Our latest behind-the-scenes look at season 3 confirms that the topical drama will tackle government whistle-blowers, also revealing that 'The Office' star B.J. Novak will join Kat Dennings among the major guest stars for the season.
While HBO finally made 'True Detective' season 2 castings official the other day with confirmations of Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn, the lead female role remained in upheaval with at least 7-10 major actresses up for the part. Now, a new reports says Rachel McAdams has all-but-definitively landed the female role of 'True Detective' season 2, with Taylor Kitsch's role as the fourth soon to follow.
Finally! After months and months of speculation upon rumor, 'True Detective' season 2 has finally begun announcing its official cast leads. Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn have been confirmed, along with 'Fast and Furious' director Justin Lin, but who else can we expect to join the HBO drama, and what new plot details have emerged?
Over the weekend we learned of 'Game of Thrones' season 5 that a departed character may yet make a return appearance from beyond the grave, but far more exciting is the prospect of seeing some of our favorite characters in vastly new circumstances. See who has landed where (with brand new looks!) in a round of spoiler-ly set photos from 'Game of Thrones' season 5!
'True Detective' season 2 rumors have become the Hydra of TV news, wherein the dismissal of any one rumor sees two more (or seven) take its place. Colin Farrell's status among the leading candidates, however, has scarcely been in question since its arrival, and now it seems the Irish actor has at last confirmed his 'True Detective' season 2 casting.
