With over 400 scripted television programs on the air in the past year, it was harder than ever to narrow it down to just the top 10 shows of 2015. From returning favorites that were better than ever to new instant favorites, it was a great year for shows to make us laugh and cry, and sometimes throw things at the screen in frustration. In only the best ways. Check out our final Top 10 below, and let us know your list in the comments! 10. The Affair Season 2Read More
In this week’s episode of HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” we get a break from all of the drama in King’s Landing and focus on the gritty stuff happening outside the royal core. First things first: Grey Worm (Jacob Anderson) is ALIVE. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said of Ser Barristan Selmy (Ian McElhinney). Like Daenerys (Emilia Clarke), I’m freaking upset that he died in an alleyway killed by rebels and not in some epic, sacrificial blaze of glory that he deserved. Alas, that’s what this show is all about—dreams turnedRead More
Since I missed recapping “Game of Thrones” last week (dammit, Lindsey, you were doing so well), I suppose a recap within this recap is called for. So super quick, blah blah blah nothing really happened in the first half of episode three besides Tommen becoming a man (and thank the heavens they aged him up in the show because oh my gosh I swear this child was like eight years old last year.) It’s not until the halfway point of this episode that shiz starts to go down. Sansa’s engagedRead More
Warning: This episode contains a whooooole lotta talking. I mean, put it this way: the character who arguably sees the most action is Podrick. Yes. Podrick. But hey, in the “Game of Thrones,” deliberation and discussion is what you need to do to pass the time in between the fight for the chair. In this episode’s opening scene, we catch up with Arya (Maisie Williams) who has made her way to Braavos to find Jaqen H’ghar (Tom Wlaschiha) a.k.a. Assassin Dude Who Refers to Himself in the Third Person. SurpriseRead More
Hiii, “Game of Thrones.” Welcome back! Last year I wrote super detailed recaps for every episode in season four. With a show as dramatic and complicated as this one, you can only imagine how arduous Sunday nights/Monday mornings were. So this year, I’ve decided that instead of detailing EVERY. LITTLE. THING. that happens in each episode, I’m going to lose a little of the formality and just highlight the highlights, freak out about the inevitable heartbreak and facepalmy moments, and enjoy the hot (but still good) mess that this notRead More
Fandoms colliding alert. The BBC announced this morning that Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark on “Game of Thrones,” will guest star on a future episode of the channel’s long-running “Doctor Who.” Williams has already started filming, and said on her first day, ““I’m so excited to be working on Doctor Who as it’s such a big and important part of British Culture.

The first official trailer and images have been released for the highly anticipated fifth season of HBO’s “Game of Thrones”. Given the show’s increasing departures from (and dwindling amount of) book source material, many aspects of the next season are a topic of intrigue. Many characters can be seen in the images and the trailer, including some of the season’s new additions to the cast. Arya Stark (Maisie Williams), Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage), Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner), Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), Jon Snow (Kit Harington), Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) andRead More
Viewers will finally get to know what one of their favorite characters was like as a child. Watchers On The Wall has released news that young actress Nell Williams will be playing Young Cersei in the upcoming season of “Game of Thrones.” As fans of the show know Lena Headey has played the character in the present since the beginning of the series. While many things have happened to her since Season 1, we still do not know much about her past. Hopefully these flashbacks will shed some light and allowRead More
