HBO and Sesame Street just announced a surprise deal that will put America’s most famous children’s TV program on the same network as Game of Thrones. PBS, the non-profit channel that has aired Sesame Street since it debuted in 1969, will still be allowed to air the program nine months after its initial run. »
A woman is sitting in a chair, her face slightly battered, paralyzed. A fly is slowly walking across her face, and she can’t move — even when the bug walks over her opened eye. She can hear a male voice in her head, asking, “Do you want to wake up?” It’s the first extended look we’ve gotten of Jonathan Nolan’s series … »
We know that in the game of thrones, you win or you die. And we know who’s dead. So...who’s winning? We’ve put together a comprehensive video tracking all five seasons of HBO’s grimly set jawline spectacular Game of Thrones, so that you can quickly and easily know who’s winning, and who’s dying.
I didn’t get to watch Silicon Valley’s “Binding Arbitration” until this afternoon because of WWDC, so apologies for the late post. In the penultimate episode, we’re treated to some solid courtroom drama, Jared quoting Hitler, and a plotline should ring a thousand bells for anyone who read Gizmodo five years ago. »

The Pied Piper gang finally has its Ari Gold, and that’s a good thing. Silicon Valley has been distinguishing itself this season by how deftly its satire straddles the line between realism and absurdism, but it’s been intermittently subdued. »
The line between satire and just accurately portraying The Way We Tech Now is very, very thin on Silicon Valley. “Runway Devaluation” has a plot that manages to be utterly silly and completely plausible.
High Maintenance started out in 2012 as a humane, intimate web series about a Brooklyn weed dealer, created by husband and wife team Katja Blichfeld and Ben Sinclair as a weekend hobby. It’s still a humane, intimate series about a Brooklyn weed dealer, but now it’s the most recent addition to HBO’s lineup. »
HBO’s second-most-popular returning show about shifting alliances and desperate, bold power plays in an unpredictable and vicious world on the brink of howling collapse came back last night. The second season premiere of Silicon Valley had 4000% fewer dragons than Game of Thrones and exactly two (2) fewer bare butt… »
