‘Room 104’: Why the Latest Jay Duplass-Led Episode Didn’t Need to be Weird to be Compelling

21 August 2017 2:27 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

There’s an anthology series trap that some series fall into when they focus on their own mythology, at the expense of the rich characters right in view. But in its early going, “Room 104” has a strong grasp on its own ambitions. It’s not trying to set up a sequel or connect its episodes into an overarching master plan. Though they may pass through the same room, these individuals live in their own clearly defined, personal worlds that have a very distinct set of concerns and anxieties.

So even though previous episodes have occupied some of the weirder psychological corners of holing up in a chain motel, that mood was always going to be flexible. With its fourth episode, “I Knew You Weren’t Dead,” “Room 104” still flirts with the metaphysical, but to a decidedly different end. A sweet, simple tale of friendship, loss, guilt, and regret, »

‘Game of Thrones’: Gendry Is Back! Here’s the Most Insane Theory Explaining Why He Returned

14 August 2017 11:52 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for “Game of Thrones” Season 7, Episode 5, “Eastwatch.”]

On Sunday night, at long last “Game of Thrones” saw fit to bring back everyone’s favorite blacksmith, Gendry (Joe Dempsie).

It turns out that the bastard has been hiding out in Flea Bottom, one of the poorer districts of King’s Landing, working in a small forge. The last time Gendry was on screen was four seasons ago when he escaped from Dragonstone in a rowboat provided by Ser Davos (Liam Cunningham). Hence, the joke Davos told upon arrival, ”Wasn’t sure I’d find you here. Thought you still might be rowing.”

Gendry’s History

In Season 1, Gendry’s status as the bastard son of King Robert Baratheon (Mark Addy) meant that he had to flee King’s Landing once Joffrey (Jack Gleeson) ascended the throne and decided to have all of Robert’s bastards killed. Among the group of people he’s traveling with to join the Night’s Watch, »

‘Room 104′: Why Orlando Jones’ Eerie Episode is a Perfect Starting Point for Jumping Into the Show

14 August 2017 11:44 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

When staging a series in such a unremarkable setting, it’s not hard to imagine there’s a temptation for a show like “Room 104” to over-correct with fanciful visions that go far beyond the confines of its solitary location. But so far, the show has done an impressive job of differentiating these episodes in subtle ways. Take this week’s episode “The Knockadoo,” an excellent starting point for those who haven’t caught up with the series yet.

While two people huddle around a hotel bed, watching a flickering TV screen, the two lamp lights behind them frame the pair in a contrasting pink and blue. It may be the same physical place that a pizza boy encounter occurred the week previously, but this unnerving half hour of television shows what this series is capable of when it subverts its own premise.

‘Game of Thrones’ Review: ‘Eastwatch’ Shows Off an Expanded World That May Doom Everyone

13 August 2017 8:35 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for “Game of Thrones” Season 7, Episode 5, “Eastwatch.”]

There’s nothing quite like a new location on the great moving “Game of Thrones” opening credits map, is there? Even with the well-informed geographical layout of Westeros that’s been slowly unspooled over the course of nearly seven seasons, every new opportunity to face a new foe brings with it the accompanying chance to carve out a new corner of map.

For this week’s episode, Eastwatch may not have made its full, grand entrance until the closing sequences, as unlikely allies go out to face the dangers beyond The Wall, but the remainder of “Eastwatch” brings reminders that “Game of Thrones” excels when it shows just how expansive this world can be. By combining that growing map with a sharpening sense of how would-be rulers keep a firm grasp on their part of the territory, it shows just how much everyone stands to lose if they’re looking in the wrong direction. »

HBO was hit by another release of episodes by hackers on Sunday, but the network said it refused to give in to their demands.

Among the latest items reportedly stolen and illegally uploaded: Episodes of “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” “Insecure” and “Ballers.” The “Curb” release may be the most damaging to date for the network, as interest is high for the return of the Larry David series, which has been off the air for six years.

Anti-‘Confederate’ Protestor: ‘Tell HBO That We Saw Their Show in Charlottesville Yesterday’

13 August 2017 1:58 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Yesterday’s events in Charlottesville, Virginia have done little to endear people to “Confederate.” The planned HBO drama from “Game of Thrones” creators David Benioff and Dan Weiss, which takes place in an alternate America in which the South won the Civil War, is already the subject of a social-media campaign to prevent the series from being made in the first place — and it appears those efforts will be ramped up tonight.

‘Room 104’ Director Breaks Down the Mind-Boggling Ending to Episode 1 — Spoilers

28 July 2017 8:59 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

[Editor’s Note: The below interview and analysis includes spoilers for “Room 104,” Episode 1, “Ralphie.”]

Room 104” welcomed guests with an absolutely wild first episode, setting a high bar for the season to come (but one they do meet).

In “Ralphie,” a single father (Ross Partridge) leaves his adolescent son, Ralph (Ethan Kent), with a babysitter, Meg (Melonie Diaz), while he goes out on a date. The job seems simple enough: Feed the kid, get him in bed at a reasonable hour, and expect the dad to return relatively early. Granted, Meg wasn’t explicitly instructed not to strangle Ralph to death, but she also wasn’t warned of an evil, identical twin brother named Ralphie who terrorizes them both.

…if that’s what happened. Thanks to a few well-placed clues as to Meg’s mental state, including a lack of references, as well as the creepy vibes of the room itself, it’s plausible she might have imagined the whole thing. Ralph could have »

‘American Gods’: No Word on When to Expect Season 2, But Starz Sees It Going For Years

Starz chief Chris Albrecht wasn’t able to confirm exactly when we might see another season of “American Gods.” However, he did tell journalists at the Television Critics Association summer press tour that there’s no end in sight for the supernatural fantasy drama.

“We’re on board as long as the show makes sense for Starz,” he said of the series, which is based on the novel by Neil Gaiman and adapted by Bryan Fuller and Michael Green. “The vision of Neil Gaiman is the guiding light for all of us, and Bryan Fuller and Michael Green are the guiding lights of that.”

“Gods” has already been renewed for a second season, which is good news for fans, given that the first season didn’t even get through half of the story told in Gaiman’s original novel. »
