In the first book of George RR Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire, Eddard Stark faces a near-impossible choice: Should he sacrifice his noble values to save his own life? This week, people across the world will have to make a similarly difficult decision: Should we watch the new season of Game of Thrones?
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.
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?
If, the keyword is if. Perhaps, it would look something like this.
True Detective’s chaotic, absurd second season wrapped up last night, but if you didn’t watch—or gave up early into the show’s run—we collected the best scenes from the entire season into a neat, two-minute compilation. This is all you really need to know.

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.
The second episode of True Detective went out with a big, big bang last night. I have no idea how to start processing the explosiveness of its ending without spoiling the entire thing, so I’ll just say: if you haven’t watched it yet and don’t want to know what happened, stop reading this right now.
The fifth season of the show is upon us, so Entertainment Weekly sat down with some of the main characters and gave them the near-impossible task of summarizing the first 4 seasons in a few seconds.
Want to watch Richard from HBO's Silicon Valley playing Total War: Attila? Actor and writer Thomas Middleditch is streaming live on Twitch right now, and he's so excited about the game it's adorable. You can watch along here.
Great news for Apple-loving cord-cutters: When HBO launches HBO Now, its new standalone subscription service, Apple will be its exclusive partner. You'll be able to watch after you sign up using an iOS device or Apple TV.
If you're a PlayStation 4 owner who enjoys HBO, it's awesome that HBO Go is now an app on the machine. If you're a Comcast subscriber, though, you can't use it. That's a bunch of bullshit.
From Tyrion's "I don't give a shit" beard to that great shot of Meereen's harpy falling, this first trailer for season 5 of HBO's Game of Thrones is full of fun moments. This is an unofficial, off-screen leak, but surely HBO will post the real thing soon. In the meantime, let's just watch and cross our fingers for…
HBO Go finally launches on Xbox One today, so if you're an HBO subscriber (or are "borrowing" your parents' account) you can now watch every episode of shows like Game of Thrones and The Sopranos on the newest Xbox. Still no word on when it will come to PS4 or Wii U.
Buried underneath the VMAs, something else important also took place on TV last night. True Blood, HBO's long-running series about sexy vampires and the people who love them, wound to a close.
Love Child, HBO's new documentary about a notorious case of video game addiction, first aired last night. Now that the film is out in the open for all to see, let's talk about it! If you had the chance to see the movie, I'd love to hear your thoughts. You can read my take here.
One day in March 2010, news began to surface that police in South Korea had arrested a couple for the death of their daughter Sarang, the Korean word for "love." She was only three months old. By the time her parents called local authorities to report her death, she was severely underweight—dropping from her birth…
A new Game of Thrones season means heaps of new characters, so I can't blame people for getting excited when new cast members are revealed—even with season five almost a year out.
