Game of Thrones Recap: Homeward Bound

12 June 2016 6:59 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Need to catch up? Check out last week’s Game of Thrones recap for Season 6, Episode 7 “The Broken Man,” here.  

ABC’s Nashville came back from the dead this week. How is this relevant to the comings and goings of Game of Thrones‘ Westeros, you ask? Well, two weeks ago I would’ve said that Lady Stoneheart opening a hot dog-and-vengeance stand somewhere in the Riverlands was more likely than the country-music drama — beloved though it may be — getting another chance.

But these are magical times we live in, and if someone is pulling fan wishes out of the ether and making them come true, »

Game of Thrones Recap: Stab in the Stark, Plus: Which Presumed-Dead Character Reappeared This Week?

5 June 2016 6:52 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Need to catch up? Check out last week’s Game of Thrones recap here.

Just in case you haven’t perused your on-screen channel guide lately, this season’s Game of Thrones episode descriptions are positively Matthew Weiner-esque in their simplicity/obfuscation.

For those not familiar with the Mad Men creator, whose demands for secrecy in all aspects of his AMC series became legend, prided himself on crafting episode previews and synopses that gave away absolutely nothing about the hour in question. For instance, an installment in which Don would go on a week-long bender might simply say, “Don has a drink. »

Game of Thrones Recap: A Stark Shock

29 May 2016 6:54 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Need to catch up? Check out last week’s Game of Thrones recap here.

Can we have a hand for Game of Thrones‘ Ser Jaime Lannister? (Yes, there’s a day that joke won’t be funny anymore, and no, today is not that day.) Fed up with how the High Sparrow has taken over his family and his city, the Kingslayer rides right up to the church creep’s front door — on horseback! — and demands what he wants.

Does he get it? Nope. But there’s an impressive political play going on in King’s Landing, and I’m »

5 Best Comedy Roasts of All Time

27 May 2016 3:19 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If Betty White has taught us anything, it's that being old doesn't mean you're not hilarious. It also doesn't mean you're not really, really vulgar when the battlefield of comedy needs you to drop some serious F-bombs.

By entertainment standards, the roast -- a concept originated by the Friar's Club fraternity way back in 1907 -- is an absolute dinosaur. But it's like a T. rex that assaults you with politically incorrect character assassination and ridiculous celebrity humiliation instead of killer jaws and tiny arms -- old as it is, the roast walks the razor's edge of "too funny" and "too far." Here are five times the comics got that balance exactly right.

1. Charlie Sheen (2011)

"I respect Charlie Sheen, I do ... not his body of work ... it's all been very Christian Slater-ish ... he sucks, but he's good, but he sucks at the same time." And so it was that the »

Kathy Griffin is remembering Joan Rivers in a new documentary premiering Friday. In an exclusive sneak peek at Joan Rivers: Exit Laughing, Griffin remembers watching her mentor on TV when she was a younger - and being inspired how the late comedian broke ground for female comics. "No matter what she did, she had that fire in her eye. That's what you would see in the male stars as well, but it was a little unique to see it in a female star. She had the same kind of drive that the boys had," says Griffin. "What that said »
