Game of Thrones Season 3

It’s unlikely that anyone who sat through the Red Wedding will soon forget it. Still, that was just one of many, many things that happened to many, many characters on Game of Thrones last season. Even the most devoted fan could be forgiven for losing track of a detail or two.

That’s where this Game of Thrones Season 3 recap video comes in. Titled “Politics of Power,” it covers all of last season — roughly ten commercial-free hours of drama — in a trim 25 minutes. Watch it after the jump.

Game of Thrones Season 4 - Jaime and Cersei

It doesn’t feel that long ago that HBO first took us into the magical land of Westeros. But sometime during Game of Thrones‘ upcoming fourth season we’re going to hit the halfway point of the entire series. According to showrunners David Benioff and David Weiss, the current plan is to wrap up the show after “seven or eight” seasons.

The pair also revealed they already know how things will end for all of the characters, even if George R.R. Martin hasn’t revealed their fates to the world at large. Hit the jump to read their comments, and to check out Vanity Fair‘s gorgeous Game of Thrones cover.

Game of Thrones Season 4 header - Jon Snow

Even as HBO viewers the world over try to recover from last night’s True Detective finale, the network would like to remind you that there’s another acclaimed, buzzworthy HBO drama coming back up on the horizon. The new Game of Thrones Season 4 trailer opens on a fairly melancholy tone, as Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) bitterly recounts the horrors that have been visited upon her and her family.

Unfortunately for her but fortunately for us, the rest of the promo — along with some newly released plot synopses — suggest that Westeros’ troubles are far from over. Watch the Game of Thrones Season 4 trailer and get some new plot details after the jump.

Martin Luther King Jr miniseries

David Simon, creator of The Wire, has found his next project: a Martin Luther King Jr miniseries. Simon is attached to an upcoming HBO miniseries based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning history books America: In The King Years, by Taylor Branch. Oprah Winfrey‘s Harpo Productions owns the rights and will produce.

Simon will reportedly write the first episode and oversee the six-hour long show with his Treme co-creator Eric Overmyer. The novels cover the bulk of the civil rights movement from 1954-1968. Read More »

Game of Thrones Season 4 header - Tyrion and Shae

The Game of Thrones Season 4 poster has arrived, and as you’d expect, it looks like bad, bad news for our favorite fantasy kingdom. Season 1 made it perfectly clear that no character death was off-limits, and Season 3 doubled down on that concept by killing off a whole swath of beloved characters.

Now, just in case you didn’t get the message the first gazillion times, the slogan for Season 4 has been revealed as “All Men Must Die” — the English translation of the High Valyrian saying “Valar Morghulis.” You could read it as a simple statement of fact, but given what we know about the twists and turns on this show we’re pretty sure it’s a threat. Remember, this is the show that turned the phrase “Winter Is Coming” into a dire prophecy.

Check out the poster, plus a huge batch of character posters, after the jump.

True Detective

HBO’s True Detective has earned near-universal acclaim from professional critics and ordinary viewers alike, but it hasn’t gone completely without controversy. One that’s been attracting more and more attention lately has to do with its dearth of strong female characters.

Some have grown irritated by the show’s bad treatment of women, others argue that “that’s the point,” and still others insist that the ladies on the show are more complex than we give them credit for. But pretty much everyone agrees that True Detective is nowhere near as generous with its supporting women as it is with its leading men.

The beauty of the show’s anthology structure, though, is that this isn’t an impossible problem to fix. Indeed, if a recent comment by show creator Nic Pizzolatto is any indication, the stars of True Detective‘s second season could very well be a couple of lady detectives. Hit the jump to find out what he said.

Game of Thrones Season 4 - Sansa and Tyrion (header)

Given all the awful stuff that’s happened in the first three seasons of Game of Thrones, it shouldn’t be a surprise that some Westerosi are thirsty for revenge. Indeed, just about every character in the latest promo seems to be seeking vengeance for one wrong or another, from little Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) to Queen Cersei (Lena Headey) to newcomer Oberyn Martell (Pedro Pascal).

Unfortunately, as Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) so rightly observes, “if you want justice, you’ve come to the wrong place.” Somehow, we suspect things are going to get so much worse for our favorite characters before they get better. Watch the latest Season 4 trailer after the jump.
