On this day in pop culture history: ‘Even Stevens’ premiered

17 June 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Before Shia Labeouf was known for turning hitchhiking into performance art, making a paper bag the most-talked about red carpet accessory, and being an actual cannibal (well, at least in this awesome song), he was Louis Stevens. 16 years ago today, Even Stevens premiered on Disney Channel, making a star out of then 14-year-old Labeouf. The shenanigans of the Stevens family were on display on the Disney Channel for three seasons, plus The Even Stevens Movie, serving as the series finale. Other notable June 17 happenings in pop culture history: • 1964: The Supremes released the single “Where Did Our Love Go.” It was their first song to hit the top of the U.S. singles chart. • 1967: Barbra Streisand sang for over 135,000 fans in New York’s Central Park. A recording of the free concert was released as her first live album, A Happening In Central Park. • 1977: The much-maligned sequel to The Exorcist, »

2016 Emmy Contenders: Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series

7 June 2016 2:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The appeal of a guest role is obvious as an actor can often make the maximum impact in minimum screen time. That’s why previous winners love to drop in on other shows, such as Hank Azaria showing up on “Ray Donovan,” Michael J. Fox popping over to “The Good Wife” and Brad Garrett showing his dramatic range on “Law & Order: Svu.”

Last year, Reg E. Cathey took home the prize for his work on “House of Cards” after two nominations. He’s likely to receive another nomination for the role of Freddy, though his co-star Colm Feore could also figure into the mix.

There are certain shows that tend to do well time and again in the guest category. One is “The Good Wife,” which has a plethora of potential nominees, from the aforementioned Fox to Denis O’Hare and Blair Underwood, both involved in a powerful gun control episode. »

Game of Thrones Season 6 – Episode 5 Review – The Door

23 May 2016 3:11 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Door

Directed by Jack Bender

Written by David Benioff & D.B. Weiss

Bran

If there’s one thing I love in any fiction, it’s time travel. If there’s one thing I love even more, it’s when time travel is used to deliver a payoff you’ve spent years waiting for, and boy does Game of Thrones deliver on that front in this episode. It’s actually a payoff you never probably imagined might exist until this season, when David Benioff & D.B. Weiss threw the open question out there from Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead-Wright) – how did Hodor (Kristian Nairn) become Hodor exactly? The answer has always been assumed to simply be learning difficulties, but the truth is as surprising as it is devastating – as theorised in my article wondering about Bran’s exploits through history, it was Bran who made Hodor into Hodor, thanks to some much needed »

Game Of Thrones season 6: 9 questions about The Door

We delve in to the mysteries revealed in the latest Game Of Thrones episode: The Door. Major spoilers ahead...

Warning: contains spoilers for Game Of Thrones season 6 episode 5 episode, The Door.

I never thought that having read A Song Of Ice And Fire affected my enjoyment of watching Game Of Thrones. Why should it? There was still miles of spectacle, diverting dialogue and violence to enjoy. Seeing how events were rendered was almost as good as finding out how they unfurled in the first place. Surprise, I reasoned, wasn’t everything.

More fool me. Watching Game Of Thrones without having a rough idea of where the big surprises are coming from is a much better time. There’s no more of the ongoing internal stock-take comparison of what’s stayed true to the source material and what’s changed, no more thinking ‘he’s seconds from getting »

Game of Thrones Episode 6.6 Preview Teases Blood of My Blood

23 May 2016 1:11 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Shortly after tonight's episode of Game of Thrones, HBO released a preview for next week's episode Blood of My Blood, airing Sunday, May 29 at 9 Pm Et. Last week, the show released plot synopses for episode 6 and 7, which, as always, were quite cryptic, but this new teaser sheds some new light on the plot. Of course, if you haven't seen tonight's Game of Thrones, there will be plenty of Spoilers below, so read on at your own risk.

Over the past five seasons, there have been a number of villainous characters who have come and gone, and it seems to be a recurring theme this season that many characters are returning after lengthy hiatuses. The Blood of My Blood synopsis, courtesy of HBO, teases that an "old foe comes back into the picture," although we aren't quite sure who is being referred to. One of the villains it could be is »

Game of Thrones Episode 6.5 Recap - Hold the Door

23 May 2016 12:53 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Game of Thrones continues to thread seminal events in season one to tragic conclusions in season six. Episode five, The Door, answers two of the show's greatest mysteries. The White Walkers creators are revealed, as well as the tragic destiny of Hodor (Kristian Nairn); the benevolent, simpleton giant who has carried and protected Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright). This conclusion was a whopper. The sanctity of The Three-Eyed Raven (Max von Sydow) is shattered as The Night King finally makes his move.

"The Door" begins with Littlefinger (Aiden Gillen) arranging a secret meeting with Sansa (Sophie Turner) in Moles Town. He is surprised that she has brought Brienne (Gwendoline Christie) as security. Sansa bitterly rebukes Littlefinger for delivering her into Ramsey Bolton's (Iwan Rheon) sadistic clutches. She no longer trusts him. Sansa recounts the horrifying abuse. Female characters are brutalized without recourse or discussion. This was a much needed moment in Game of Thrones. »

Hodor. Fans have used Wylis's name to cover every emotion on "Game of Thrones." When we're excited -- Hodor! When we're sad -- Hodor. When we're confused -- Hodor? So it's no surprise that "Game of Thrones" Season 6, Episode 5, "The Door," ended with a focus on one man, and a reaction of one word.

Jason Momoa Reacts to the Mother of Dragon's Fiery Nude Scene on Game of Thrones

17 May 2016 3:39 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Almost every episode of HBO's Game of Thrones produces at least one shocking moment that fans can't stop talking about until the next episode rolls around. Sunday night's Book of the Stranger was no different, ending with a jaw-dropping scene involving Emilia Clarke's Daenerys Targaryen. One of the actress' Season 1 co-stars, Jason Momoa, recently expressed his praise for the actress in a new Instagram post, which has already gone viral in less than 24 hours. Be warned, if you haven't watched last week's Game of Thrones, there will be Spoilers below, so read on at your own risk.

At the end of Season 5, Daenerys was discovered by a horde of Dothraki soldiers, after she had escaped an assassination attempt in Meereen. This season, she revealed to Khal Moro (Joe Naufahu) that she was the widow of Khal Drogo (Jason Momoa). She was informed that she must now go to the Dothraki capitol of Vaes Dothrak, »

Game of Thrones Season 6 – Episode 3 Review – ‘Oathbreaker’

9 May 2016 1:57 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tony Black reviews the third episode of Game of Thrones season 6…

Oathbreaker

Directed by Daniel Sackheim

Written by David Benioff & D.B. Weiss

Jon

He may have died and been resurrected by Melisandre’s (Carice van Houten) weird magic, but Jon Snow (Kit Harington) still knows nothing. Worryingly he seems to suggest the Gods everyone in Westeros and beyond believe in may well be false given he seemed to see nothing ‘beyond the Wall’ so to speak, certainly not Mel’s God R’hllor. That doesn’t stop her, mind you, planting the seed almost immediately that Jon may be ‘The Prince That Was Promised’, even before he’s properly had a stiff tumbler of mead and Ser Davos Seaworth (Liam Cunningham) has stopped exclaiming in shock all over the place. The big question is whether or not Jon *is* Jon anymore and though Eddison Tollet (Ben Crompton) suggests this in jest, »

Game of Thrones Episode 6.3 Recap - Even More Resurface

9 May 2016 12:34 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The latest episode of Game of Thrones, entitled "Oathbreaker", is the first episode of season 6 that fails under the weight of mammoth exposition. That's pretty disappointing, especially after the long awaited resurrection of Jon Snow (Kit Harington) last week. His oddly boring return isn't the only one. Osha (Natalia Tena) and Rickon Stark (Art Parkinson) are brought back into the fray under the most unfortunate circumstances. They are captured and served up as tribute to the sadistic Ramsey Bolton (Iwan Rheon). You'd think that would be a riveting scene, but is played like a mundane afterthought. I understand that groundwork is being laid for epic confrontations, but there was some sorely needed sizzle missing here.

The episode begins with Ser Davos (Liam Cunningham) helping Jon Snow to his feet. Jon is bewildered by his return to life. Melisandre (Carice van Houten) asks what he saw in the afterlife - nothing. »

Game Of Thrones season 6 episode 3 review: Oathbreaker

Game Of Thrones served up a tantalising flashback this week, alongside the usual misery and death...

This review contains spoilers

6.3 Oathbreaker

One of the things that Game Of Thrones hasn't really done much is flashback moments. We got one of young Cersei last season, and this season, thanks to the adventures of Bran Stark and the Three Eyed Max Von Sydow, we've been getting flashbacks pretty regularly. Bran Stark, as we saw previously, got to see his father when he was Bran's age, fighting with Benjen in a Winterfell training session while Lyanna rode around on horseback being charming. This episode, we get closer and closer to the secret origin of Jon Snow with Ned (Robert Aramayo, who looks uncannily like Sean Bean), Howland Reed (Leo Woodruff), and the others squaring off against two of Rhaegar Targaryen's Kingsguard, Arthur Dayne (Luke Roberts) and Oswell Whent (Eddie Eyre »

'Game of Thrones' Live Blog - Who is the 'Oathbreaker'?

8 May 2016 5:55 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Social media is dark and full of terrors spoilers. To avoid spoiling the fun for fans on the west coast and those who have to wait to beg, borrow, or steal an HBO Go password, this season I’m confining my stream-of-consciousness thoughts to this liveblog. Follow along or flee in fear. Here there be spoilers! Catch up on Episode Two, 'Home,' over here. ******************** [8:55 Pm Edt] - I should've gotten hazard pay for even having to watch the last five minutes of The Fantastic Four.  [9:02 Pm Edt] - No one cares about anything but the Tower of Joy. Move it along, "Previously On." Wait. We're getting more Sam? Are we going to Oldtown too!?!? [9:06Pm Edt] - Jon Snow is confused, naked, full of bloody holes, and cold. That'd be enough to cause anyone to panic, without the "back from the dead" part. No no. No one cares if you remember that Olly is an asshole. »

Star Wars: Vader Looms

6 May 2016 2:38 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Hopefully you made the most of May the 4th! We did not get a new title for Episode VIII: Space Bear, so I’m a little disappointed. This is what happens when you set expectations for yourself based on what you want instead of any actionable information: disappointment.

There was some new info dumps via licensed products that seemed interesting. First off, as much as I wanted to take an evening speed reading Claudia Gray’s Star Wars: Bloodline, I made the decision to wait for reviews before reading it at a casual pace. Thankfully, the internet, so I know some stuff about how it intersects with the rest of the canon. From what I gather, Ben Solo and Luke are off training, but it’s vague as to where or what they are doing. There’s no mention of Snoke. Chewbacca is living with his family on Kashyyyk with his family, »

This Long Missing Game of Thrones Character Will Return Soon

6 May 2016 11:56 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Before Season 6 of Game of Thrones got under way last month, we already knew a number of characters not seen in some time were making their return. The most prominent character was Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead-Wright), who wasn't seen in Season 5, along with Hodor (Kristian Nairn) and Meera (Ellie Kendrick) because their stories had already caught up with George R.R. Martin's book series. We also learned that others like Yara Greyjoy (Gemma Whelan) and Thoros of Myr (Paul Kaye) will be returning after lengthy hiatuses. Now it seems another long-missing character is coming back, Rickon Stark (Art Parkinson).

We haven't seen Rickon since the ninth episode of Season 3, The Rains of Castamere, which is also the episode where the brutal Red Wedding massacre took place. During this episode, Bran tells Rickon and Osha (Natalia Tena) to head for The Last Hearth, where the Stark's bannermen The Umbers will protect them, »
