The French always gotta be one upping America. We declare independence and throw tea in a harbor as a middle finger to the king. They revolt and decapitate their king. We invent fast food. They invent chocolate croissants. We release the best season of Game of Thrones yet (with some help from the limeys). They release…
It’s taken six seasons, but Ned Stark has finally been proven right: Winter has come, and with it, the beginning of the end of Game of Thrones. As such, the show needed to start paring down its various storylines and plot threads, which it did last night with brutal efficiency. For those few players that remain, the…
And I mean EVERYTHING. Tonight’s season six finale may have contained more major developments than the previous nine episodes combined, and it’s been a pretty damned exciting season! Let’s discuss.
Long before the events of Game of Thrones and George R. R. Martin’s fantasy books, Westeros was home to magic and strange, sinister creatures. We’ve only just started to glimpse this backstory on the show, but the books contain lots of hints. Here’s our complete guide to the fantastical past of this grim world.
The final episode of Game of Thrones’ sixth season airs this Sunday night, and while HBO may not trust us with a 10-word, vague-to-the-point-of-meaningless synopsis of the show, that doesn’t mean we can’t make a few educated guesses of our own.
Ha! I trapped the drink you ordered in a weird ice sphere. Bet you weren’t expecting that. Don’t even try melting it with your tongue or some shit, because I also lit the glass on fire.
Winter is coming, but the Brexit is already here—the United Kingdom is leaving the European Union. Economists are worried. Scientists are worried. Adam from Manchester is worried, and also a complete buffoon. But so are Game of Thrones fans, as the show films across the EU. Good news, though: the show will be fine.
This entire nearly hour-long conversation between writing luminaries George R. R. Martin and Stephen King is well worth listening to in its entirety, but before that: skip to around 50:08 and hear Martin ask the one question he’s always wanted to put to King. It’s worth it.
Greetings and salutations my... uh... greeters/saluters. Sorry last week’s mailbag got briefly lost in the mail (the irony!) but here’s an extra-large one to make up for it, including whether WB could “Rebirth” the DCMU, who should star in Marvel’s Suicide Squad, and how you can recognize if a woman is in a…
Dave Filoni discusses bringing a Clone Wars character to Rogue One. Michael Bay unveils a new Transformers character. Arrow reveals a tribute to its fallen vigilante. Plus, new pictures from the Game of Thrones season finale, even more Spider-Man casting, and a new Power Rangers poster. Spoilers Now!
“Battle of the Bastards” was one of Game of Thrones’ most memorable episodes, with one of the most harrowing and visceral battles ever captured on film. This behind-the-scenes video explores how director Miguel Sapochnik (who also oversaw season five’s brutal “Hardhome”) staged the epic set-piece from start to finish.
Hey, ha ha, remember how the last few episodes of Game of Thrones have seemed to be a bit… low-key? Uh, well, now we know the reason why: It was spending all its time (and manpower, and probably a sizable portion of season six’s budget) on creating what is possibly the most incredible battle that has ever been seen on…
So it finally came down to this: an unbelievably epic battle between Jon Snow and Ramsay Bolton for Winterfell, the North, and maybe even all of Westeros. But which bastard reigned supreme?
It’s not just you. HBO Now, the app that lets people watch HBO shows as soon as they’re live on broadcast TV, isn’t working. HOW ARE WE SUPPOSED TO WATCH GAME OF THRONES?
For a facsimile of a scientifically unfeasible guy who abducts babies and commands an army of the dead, the watermelon Night King looks pretty friendly! Though that seems to be the case with most villains who are later reduced to a disembodied head (Futurama’s Nixon and the Spiral King in Gurren Lagann come mind).
Even though HBO adamantly refuses to even say anything vague about season six’s final two episodes, a random article in a British entertainment mag may have just revealed a pretty major bombshell about this Sunday’s “Battle of the Bastards.” Really!
HBO might not want to release an absurdly vague synopsis for the next episode of Game of Thrones, but they would like you to know that the big bastard-y brawl between Jon Snow and Ramsay Bolton duethis weekend happened because of a ton of people’s gruelling work.
David Ayer says there’s more than you realize to the Joker’s Suicide Squad tattoos. Arrow recruits a new vigilante. Robin Lord Taylor teases what’s to come for the Penguin on Gotham. Plus, more excellent American Gods casting, new footage from Independence Day: Resurgence, and more stills from Game of Thrones’ next…
In the long list of stupid things done for the sake of performative secrecy, HBO’s refusal to give any descriptions of the last two episodes of season six of Game of Thrones ranks right above pretending your mouth is a lock and miming turning a key and throwing it away.
Game of Thrones is a show where audiences always need to expect the unexpected. But sometimes, when you’re expecting something crazy to happen, that means the show will surprise you by not doing anything crazy at all. And that’s what last night’s episode was: Not crazy in the slightest. Of course, “not crazy” on Game…
