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?
If, the keyword is if. Perhaps, it would look something like this.
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.
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. One very important book character was conspicuously absent from the announcement, however, and I'm worried. It's not just me, either.
True Blood is a raunchy show about vampires and other supernatural beings. Its cast in turn contains many actors who were relatively unknown when the show first started in 2008, and are now regularly hailed as pinnacles of physical perfection.
Tony Soprano and his family might not live on the West Coast, but 8-bit Bastard's remake of the classic opening of the show in Grand Theft Auto V makes me want to load up the original again.
Mario and Link are pretty psyched about Nintendo's promise to be more "inclusive" in future games.
Game of Thrones has been dominating the headlines recently, and not necessarily for all the right reasons. The incredibly intricate fantasy saga is still a riveting watch every week, but it's also been accused of excessive depictions of rape and a few other, more minor infractions. The show's producers, however, make…
The social strategy of Game of Thrones: Ascent is now available for free on iPad. The mobile release comes just in time for the beginning of season four of the HBO series, and will update with fresh content after every TV episode airs. It's available now on iTunes, with an Android version in the works.
The Wall that protects the Seven Kingdoms in Game of Thrones came alive at SXSW 2014 with the help of Oculus Rifts. Three cast members were there to promote the show and try the headset out, but one of them couldn't control her emotions and panicked.
