Maybe it’s the rape, or the violence, or how it’s really boring. Everyone seems to have an opinion about why Game of Thrones, once a mesmerizing fantasy land that darkly mirrored modern day dilemmas, has become near unwatchable. (Which is not to say people have by any means ceased to watch it.) But there is one reason…
We’re living in a golden age of television, both at large and within the scope of genre TV. And apparently the Peabody Awards agree. This year the prestigious committee has given three of its Entertainment awards to three of our favorite shows of the last year: Mr. Robot, The Leftovers and Jessica Jones.
Excellent news if you’re excited for Game of Thrones’ return but don’t have HBO: The channel will be free to view this weekend, giving you access to Sunday night’s broadcast of the season six premiere. As well as Game of Thrones, the weekend includes the pay-TV premiere of Jurassic World, and a new episode of Last…
If you want to get away from Winterfell and Ramsay Bolton’s nightmarish way of hunting you down, you’re going to have to get a little wet and a lot cold.
Game of Thrones season six starts soon, and it’s becoming obvious that we’re heading towards the show’s endgame. But even then, it’s a bit surprising to hear just how close the end could be—and how it might come about. It turns out, there’s less Game of Thrones left than anyone realized.
Hey, remember how HBO freaked out about episodes of Game of Thrones leaking and put everything on lock down? Well, that prohibition doesn’t apply to the POTUS.
So, as as we’ve already established, “Oh god everything is woefully depressing” is the equivalent of a normal Tuesday on Game of Thrones. But man, these three new clips from season six are united in giving us an update on just how bleak events are for Daenerys, Cersei, and Sansa.
Huzzah, we have a fresh look at Game of Thrones sixth season—and as ever, it both paints a miserable picture for our favorite characters, while also offering a ton of intriguing new teases. Here are the thirteen moments that stand out the most to us, and what they reveal about the new season.
I mean, everything looks miserable for everyone—this is, after all, Game of Thrones. But the Stark kids get the misery focus in this awesome new teaser for Game of Thrones’ sixth season.
The first big trailer for Game of Thrones’ sixth season ended with an awesome stinger of Davos Seaworth drawing Jon Snow’s sword from its sheathe, ready to hack someone to pieces. But a new clip from the show’s premiere gives us some context for the badass moment, and there’s a lot more going on than we thought.
Lili Simmons (Banshee, True Detective) has joined the cast of HBO’s upcoming and highly anticipated TV remake of Westworld, which is really good news for people who want to see Westworld. The J.J. Abrams-produced show has resumed production after a hiatus late last year, meaning it’s on its way... eventually.
It’s running a full day after each episode of GoT airs. So the aftershow, which will be hosted by Andy Greenwald and Chris Ryan (of Grantland’s Watch the Thrones podcast), will be premiering on Monday, April 25... while Game of Thrones’ season six premieres on Sunday, April 24.
HBO has released a new short trailer for the sixth season of Game of Thrones, and it has a whole lot of new footage from the upcoming season.
With just over a month and a half to go, we finally have it—our first proper look at Game of Thrones’ sixth season. Without the books to guide us, we don’t really know what’s going to happen (or, we’re not supposed to). But we can still break down a lot of what we can see in this new trailer. Care to join us?
The saga of Jon Snow’s status in Game of Thrones season six continues. Over the past year we’ve heard denials, confirmations and more (and written an unsightly number of words about hair length) about whether or not Jon Snow is returning for season six. Now Kit Harington has chimed in to confirm he is back. Sort of.
The Night’s Watch storyline in Game of Thrones last year was all about Jon’s struggle with command, both mentally and... uh, physically, especially in the season’s final episode. But now you can see even more of the simmering conflict between the Wildlings and the Night’s Watch that led to Jon’s downfall in this new…
Game of Thrones, leaks, and online piracy in general have a... tumultuous relationship. Not only is the show regularly the most-pirated TV show on the Internet, last year, nearly half of the show’s fifth season leaked before its broadcast. It’s no surprise HBO is taking some major precautions to avoid this problem for…
Sure, we’ve had multiple teases for Game of Thrones’ sixth season, but none of them have given us actual, honest to god footage from the season. However, this new featurette focusing on the camera work that goes into a huge production like Game of Thrones does give us an actual look at the next season... from a…
The long wait for Game of Thrones’ home video release is always agony, but at least we get the “Histories and Lore” extras in the mean time. Two of the 15(!) featurettes—detailing Robert’s Rebellion and the Many-Faced God—included in the season 5 release have arrived online, and you can see them here.
