Game of Thrones packs an insane amount of detailed history into every episode of its five seasons, but did you know the entire story of Robert’s Rebellion is told in every opening credits? What about the time Emilia Clarke got stuck to a toilet seat from all the fake blood, or that George W. Bush made an unexpected cameo in Kings’ Landing? These are just some of the facts packed into the first episode of You Think You Know TV, which heads to the wide world of Westeros with fresh facts about Game of Thrones!
With Game of Thrones returning for a fifth season of murder, sex, betrayal, and sex, we decided that we must take on a task that would make even the most powerful nobles in Westeros recall their banners. We have ranked every single remotely noteworthy character on the show from worst to best.
The imminent arrival of Game of Thrones Season 5 has literary creator George R.R. Martin racing to finish sixth novel The Winds of Winter, but TV may have placed yet another obstacle in his path. Martin will have a hand in developing a new HBO sci-fi period drama Captain Cosmos, with another writer already on board.
Harry Potter may have come and gone, and no one knows who or where we’ll find any Fantastical Beasts, but J.K. Rowling’s next book is already getting the adaptation treatment. The first full trailer fro HBO’s The Casual Vacancy miniseries has arrived, with more than a few Harry Potter stars in tow.
Despite Game of Thrones Season 5 diverging from its source material, the upcoming year proves notable as the first without creator George R.R. Martin penning at least one episode. Now, Martin confirms that the same will be true of Game of Thrones Season 6, instead taking time to perfect the literary saga’s penultimate chapter, The Winds of Winter.
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?
