It’s been a long and rocky road for the HBO series Westworld, but it will soon be on our TV screens, ready to entice us to a wonderful and vividly realized fantasy land where danger lurks around every corner and nothing is as it seems. There’s a lot of pressure on this show as HBO needs a hit; none of its new shows have made much of an impact as of late, and Game of Thrones only has two truncated seasons left to it. So with absolutely no pressure at all, Westworld better impress us immediately, right? Well, not to worry because given the pedigree, and this new trailer below, it seems that Westworld may be the closest thing to a guaranteed hit for the new TV season. (more…)
Just when you’ve come to terms with the fact that Game of Thrones won’t be back in April – Due to the long-awaited arrival of winter in the season six finale, filming has been pushed back for season seven, with a return date at some point late summer – HBO announces that the hit series will officially end at season 8. The show about warring factions, family disputes, power plays, and….and… bewbz, it will all be over. *insert sad face here* (more…)
It looks like Samuel L. Jackson is tired of those Muther@#$%ing dragons on HBO‘s hit show Game of Thrones.

Jackson NSFW style we’ve all become accustomed to. So check out the video below, but first make sure your boss or cubicle co-workers can’t hear and then send the link for this post to that friend you’ve been trying to get hooked on Game of Thrones.

The finale for HBO‘s Game of Thrones sixth season blew the roof off the series ratings record from the fifth season finale with 800,000 more viewers setting the new record at 8.9 million for the on air broadcast. When HBO tallies the numbers for those that watched the finale on DVR, encore, On-Demand, and those that streamed the finale on HBO GO and HBO NOW estimates put the number at 23.3 million total viewers. That’s enough people to make up the entire population of Taiwan. There’s no doubt the show is popular and with two seasons left, and only 15 episodes between them, fans are excited to see what’s coming. Showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss had a couple of things to tell fans about the upcoming two seasons. (more…)
Winter has finally come! Last week we were left with Jon Snow vs Ramsey Bolton and all of its great epicness. On this week’s season finale of Game of Thrones we not only got to see the aftermath of that glorious battle, but we also got a whole lot moving in the rest of the seven kingdoms. Pretty much every story going on moved forward and either reached some sort of conclusion or helped set up something cool for next season. Everything from Cersei’s trial, to multiple deaths, to finally confirming a long-running fan theory, this week’s Game of Thrones did not disappoint.

It’s happening, it’s actually happening! In a case of life imitating art, the production of HBO‘s new series Westworld has been as glitchy as the robots that run amok in the titular theme park, but the question is have they finally been able to work out all the bugs? Viewers will be able to judge for themselves when Westworld finally debuts this fall, and in a pretty big confidence boost for the show, HBO put its trailer on before the penultimate episode of Game of Thrones last night. But if you were otherwise occupied, or maybe just watching Game 7 of the Cavs and the Warriors, you can find the trailer posted below. (more…)
To quote Beyonce: “Who Runs The World? Girls!!
This week’s Game of Thrones gave us the epic battle of Jon Snow against Ramsey Bolton (Snow): The Battle of the Bastards! The Thriller In The North!! So did it live up to the hype? This probably was one of the finest, well shot, well edited, tense, and satisfying episodes of television ever!! They laid everything on the table this episode, and the last 20 minutes left you speechless! While we spent most of our time in the North with #TeamSnow, we also got to see Dany also hold it down with her triumphant return to Meereen.

We’re quickly drawing to a close another season of Game of Thrones, and with it being the sixth season, and considering recent discussions about the show only has maybe 13 episodes of story left in it, it’s all but guaranteed that the next few hours of the show are going to be highly consequential. Not much is known about the final two hours of season six to air on June 19 and 26 respectively, but we do know this, the show is going to be squeezing every minute of action it can out of them. On top of that, you’ll have to make sure your DVRs don’t cut off the last 10 minutes of the finale. (more…)
In this week’s Game of Thrones, a whole lot happened. Jon and Sansa began to put their plan of retaking Winterfell into action. Jamie Lannister went to the Riverlands and involved himself in the war of the Tullys and Freys. We got to see yet more politicking between the Lannisters and the Sparrows. Arya now that she no longer is No One, met up with the Faceless Men for a brief confrontation. Theon and his sister stopped for a little R&R and a quick pep talk. Finally, we got to see what an old friend’s been doing since his, ahem, unintended sabbatical from the story, but will they be back in the mix with all the problems involved in Game of Thrones? While this wasn’t as a high-stakes episode as the past two episodes, the ball moved forward and we got yet another great episode of the show.

‘Game of Thrones‘ is only halfway through its sixth season, but there have already been some memorable moments. The HBO series, which airs Sundays at 9pm, keeps a grueling schedule as it can take up to a month or more to completely shoot episodes for the hit show. This is due to travelling to locations, schedules of the actors, and just who is involved in the scenes to be filmed.
Jack Bender, director of ‘Game of Thrones’ season six episodes “The Door” and “Blood of My Blood,” recently spoke with Vanity Fair about his work on the series and he revealed a point of interest regarding next season. Bender claims that next season will only consist of seven episodes. (more…)
