HBO’s The Jinx enraptured viewers not just by the brutal nature and winding mystery of its central crimes, but also the sinister mannerisms of its prime suspect, Robert Durst. The real estate heir famously even implicated himself in the final episode, though Durst now claims he was using meth “the whole time.”

The girls of Girls will no longer be girls by the time Girls comes to Girls’ end this February, but worse yet; they may not even be friends. The latest trailer for the sixth and final season of Lena Dunham’s life serial sees the four just barely hanging on, while Adam and his Kylo Ren hair makes things even more complicated.

HBO’s most recent comedies haven’t proven the commercial breakthrough that Westworld was for drama, and it may take some big names for Judd Apatow and Pete Holmes’ Crashing to get there. The newest trailer bring out both Sarah Silverman and T.J. Miller, also namedropping everything from Chris Rock to The Wire.
If Game of Thrones Season 6 made one notable course-correction, it might have been the sideline of Dorne stories after their meandering focus in Season 5. Still, Ellaria Sand and the Sand Snakes will be backing Daenerys in Season 7, and they may yet end up in a surprising role.
Westworld ambitiously sought to weave its first season across multiple timelines as an in-depth examination of robot consciousness, understandably leaving little room to answer every mundane question about the park. That said, producers promise Season 2 will show a bit more of the guests’ perspective, perhaps finally answering our burning questions.
Even as Westworld creator Jonah Nolan warned us ahead of time that Season 1 wouldn’t feature the “Roman World” or “Medieval World” of the 1973 film, the mysterious samurai-themed “SW” of finale installment “The Bicameral Mind” caught us off guard. We might not get to spend too much time in other parks, however, as Nolan claims “Westworld remains the center of our narrative.”
It’s easy to attach J.J. Abrams’ name to a Bad Robot project and call it a day, but in the case of HBO’s highest post-Westworld pickup, the association might actually mean something. So it is, that Bad Robot is developing interstellar drama Glare for the pay cable network, taking a little trip beyond Westworld.
Game of Thrones showrunners seemed finally to have gotten their wish that UFC fighter Conor McGregor would put in a cameo appearance, and we may yet have more proof. Not only are UFC heads confirming the part, but we also know that McGregor’s role left him speechless.
Long before Westworld turned to be the hit HBO needed, viewers were at least onboard with the show’s iconic soundtrack, from orchestral covers of “Paint It Black,” to original compositions from the mind behind Game of Thrones’ music. Now, HBO releases the full roster of 30+ songs from Season 1 of Westworld, just enough to tide you over until 2018.
