The sixth season of Game of Thrones made clearer than ever where author George R.R. Martin draws the line at confirming book twists spoiled by the HBO series, but that doesn’t mean the Game of Thrones creator signs off on every adaptational change. Showrunners reveal that Martin has at least a few disagreements with the HBO adjustments, even if he’s “a grown-up and a gentleman about it.”

Game of Thrones can be hard enough for fans to keep keep straight, but if ever six seasons of un-pronouncable names and changing alliances should stick, it’d be Samuel L. Jackson recapping the realm. Yes, it seems Jackson hates the Lannisters about as much as he hates Foggy Nelson, recapping the entirety of Game of Thrones in a new video.

Chances are, you or someone you know either shares their Netflix and HBO Go passwords or benefits from using someone else’s account. It’s such a common occurrence that, when asked about it, even the CEO of HBO was like, “No big deal,” then he tipped his shades and sent out a memo with a shrug emoticon — okay, I made that last part up, but if even that guy doesn’t care, then what’s the problem? Oh, just a little something called Federal Law.

John Oliver’s HBO Last Week Tonight has been on a brief hiatus since we said goodbye to Game of Thrones, and while the intervening weeks have surely wrought plenty to discuss upon his return, there’s time to take stock meanwhile. Cue a new web-only exclusive for Last Week Tonight, as the comedian delves into “fan mail” to read some of the nicer (and nastier) comments about the series.

How Easy Is It for Someone Who’s Never Watched ‘Game of Thrones’ to Understand ‘Game of Thrones’?

With dozens upon dozens of main characters, complex intersecting plots, and a detailed off-screen history, there’s no denying that ‘Game of Thrones’ can be a difficult show to follow. Even as a diehard fan I often refer to Wikipedia pages and read recaps to keep up with the events of the show. But is it actually that hard to understand? Can a total ‘Thrones’ newbie jump into the show six seasons in and figure out what’s happening?

Trailer-crafting can prove every much an art as filmmaking itself, and whether or not Suicide Squad manages to right the course of DC movies, the David Ayer villain thriller will have given us several great promos. So great, in fact, that even your aversion to mash-up trailers wouldn’t dare extend to this pretty spectacular pairing with Game of Thrones.

The mystery of Jon Snow’s parentage over the years became more of a waiting game for Game of Thrones fans, one with an answer that famously greenlit the HBO series in the first place. We haven’t heard author George R.R. Martin weighing on any of Game of Thrones Season 6's big reveals, but it seems the author had covertly tipped his hand to Jon Snow’s father at least as early as 2002.

In addition to J.B. Smoove, Cheryl Hines is now officially expected to reprise her role as Larry’s ex-wife.
