Everything we've seen and heard of 'Game of Thrones' season 5 thus far has suggested that the 2015 run of HBO's George R.R. Martin-adapted fantasy drama will be the most book-divergent yet, and with so much ground to cover, a number of stories and characters have already fallen by the wayside. Will the same fate befall the Iron Islands, and the important Greyjoy subplots featured throughout Martin's novels?

'True Detective' season 2 has been something of a Hollywood guessing game, even with HBO's official confirmation that Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn would comprise two of the show's new leads, following Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson of the first season. Taylor Kitsch has long been associated with the HBO drama's second season as well, but has the 'John Carter' star officially confirmed his role?

We've come to the series finale, to the end of the line, where all of Nucky's reflections on his past -- both recent history and memories nestled deep in those flashbacks that have punctuated the season -- serve to illustrate that timeless question: is it the man who makes the choices, or do the choices make the man? This final season has been guiding us to the understanding that for Nucky, it was one singular choice that made him, a choice that also shaped the future of Gillian Darmody, intertwining their lives and fates.

Though 'Game of Thrones' has always been kept under lock and key with its international production, season 5 shooting has given way to a multitude of new looks at the 2015 run, which looks to be the most book-divergent yet.

With an intense, all-out war being waged between Nucky and Charlie Luciano, 'Boardwalk Empire' plunges onward toward its conclusion. The past bleeds into the present, as chance encounters blossom into opportunities given to those desperate for them, and how that desperation inevitably lends itself to gruesome circumstance. Most startling and perhaps poetic of all in "Friendless Child" is the way that two fates are intertwined, and how redemption can come at the 11th hour for Nucky Thompson in the most unexpected way.

HBO subscriptions have been something of a running joke through the TV industry, with a great many of the network's loyal fans sharing HBOGO passwords to avoid expensive cable packages, previously the only mean with which to watch shows like 'Game of Thrones' or 'True Detective.' Now, the company has finally acquiesced, and announced an independent streaming service due out in 2015.

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.

'Boardwalk Empire' Review: "Devil You Know"

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.
