The extra few days off the west gets over the festive period for Christmas and New Year is a time that every nine-to-five worker looks forward to all year round. A few days off to hang out with friends and family, eat the homeliest of hot dinners, drink without concern for the consequences and spend a little while putting the world’s problems aside for a bit and just relax, settle into the couch and let time slip by. This year, HBO is making all your chill out time easier to mange to filling, well, all of it with a Game of Thrones marathon. (more…)
Slenderman, the tall monstrous figure who originated online in the Something Awful forums has taken on a life of its own. Online users were able to organically create their own horror story surrounding this modern day monster. In the form of an extremely tall and faceless man in a black suit, fans were able to create their own horror stories and soon enough Slenderman had become a part of the pop culture lexicon: inspiring video games such as Slender: The Eight Pages and Slender: The Arrival, and countless internet memes/photos. That didn’t come without a dark side, though….
Have you been enjoying Westworld? HBO hopes you have. They’re kind of in desperate need of a new drama hit with Game of Thrones winding down in the last couple of years, and with Netflix nipping at their heels as TV’s drama destination. So how is Westworld working for HBO? So far so good. The show seems to be generating a lot of discussion about its various mysteries online, but there’s still been no renewal announcement from the cable outlet, and these days if you’re not renewed immediately, then you’re on the bubble. So what’s the deal? When will Westworld score that vaunted renewal notice for season two? (more…)
Back in 1973 (a year some of our readers may even be old enough to remember), there was a movie by the name of Westworld that was destined to become a cult classic.

The marketing has been hitting the Internets for weeks thus far and now, shortly before the release is scheduled, HBO is sending us yet another look at their creation.

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…)

The show about warring factions, family disputes, power plays, and….and… bewbz, it will all be over. *insert sad face here* (more…)

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.
Warning: This article contains spoilers from the “Game of Thrones” Season 6 episode “The Winds of Winter.”
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…)
