All "Dickon" jokes aside, the younger Tarly brother on Game of Thrones is certainly easy on the eyes. Played by British actor Tom Hopper, the role of Dickon was recast from one sexy star (Freddie Stroma) to another for the show's seventh season. In the latest episode, Dickon saves Jaime midbattle by stabbing a Dothraki warrior, but the jury's out on what his fate might be after that wild battle. For now, we're just paying tribute to all the glorious Dickon moments that have popped up so far - and if you're wondering why his armor seems so bulky, we're pretty sure it's just because Tom Hopper's muscles are insane. »

It is rare that we Game of Thrones fans are introduced to new characters seven seasons in, especially given the already sizable ensemble cast. However, viewers were treated to a surprise new addition in the latest episode, “The Spoils of War.”
The surprise in question is actor Tom Hopper, taking over the role of the uniquely-named Dickon Tarly, and here are five things you should know about the handsome Thrones newcomer.
He’s not technically a new characterThe curious thing about Hopper’s appearance is that while his face might be new to viewers, his character is not. We were first introduced to Tarly, »

If you've been tuning in to Game of Thrones season seven, then you probably noticed that Dickon Tarly is super hot. The character is played by 32-year-old British actor Tom Hopper, who replaced Freddie Stroma when the role was recast. Over the last few years, he's appeared on the small screen on shows like Doctor Who and Black Sails. Meanwhile, he's also active on Instagram, where he shares adorable pictures of his family plus some sexy shirtless snaps that will make you do a double take. We'll have to wait until next week to see what Dickon's fate might be after that insane battle, but in the meantime, let's just enjoy some hot pictures of Tom, shall we? »

When we first meet Dickon Tarly, Samwell's pompous brother on Game of Thrones, he's at a very awkward Tarly family dinner in season six. He openly mocks his brother about his claims of killing a White Walker and is generally a big assh*le (no wonder Sam has all those self-esteem issues). He's played by Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince actor Freddie Stroma in the episode (pictured above), who confirmed not long after it aired that he would not be returning to the series in season seven due to scheduling conflicts with his now-canceled show, Time After Time. Although we were sad to see Stroma go, the actor was soon recast with a (very hot) replacement. Meet the new Dickon Tarly: Tom Hopper. Hopper, who's appeared in Black Sails and Merlin, made his debut in season seven's second episode during a tense conversation with Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) in King's Landing. »

The bad news is Charlie Hunnam turned down a cameo on Game of Thrones, but the good news is he'd actually "love" to make an appearance on the hit show. Speaking with The Sun, Hunnam revealed that he was offered a role on the series but he was forced to turn it down because of scheduling conflicts. "I would love to do a Game of Thrones cameo," he said. "They offered me a cameo on that show a little while ago but I was shooting something else so I wasn't able to do it. But maybe in the future, who knows." Ok, now we're curious: what kind of cameo was he offered? Maybe Samwell Tarly's brother, Dickon, who's played by Freddie Stroma? Would he have been a Wildling? A member of the Night's Watch? Just a creepy (but still kind of hot?) face in the Hall of Faces? Alas, we may never know, »

It’s that time of year again. As the major networks prepare for annual upfront presentations in New York next week, they’re sharpening their axes, canceling shows left and right to make room for new titles in the fall. The house-cleaning includes both freshmen series like Fox’s trio of newcomers — “Son of Zorn,” “Making History,” and “APB” — bubble shows like “Sleepy Hollow,” and veterans like Tim Allen’s “Last Man Standing” on ABC.
“Sleepy Hollow”: After developing a loyal fanbase, “Sleepy Hollow,” starring Tom Mison as Ichabod Crane, was canceled after four seasons. The supernatural drama saw its ratings drop sharply in Season 4, averaging a 0.5 rating in the 18-49 demo and 1.9 million total viewers — down 40% in the demo and and 37% in viewers from the previous season.

As we count the days leading up to Game of Thrones' seventh season, we find ourselves craving more and more information - blame this year's delayed premiere. There are a handful of cliffhangers that need resolution, but right now we're more concerned with the new storylines. There are a couple of new faces coming to the show, but only one of them will play a new character. (Tom Hopper is just taking over the role of Dickon Tarly, since Freddie Stroma left the show to star on Time After Time.) Of course, Ed Sheeran is making an appearance, but it will more than likely be a short cameo. This leaves one new actor with potential for a meaty new part: Jim Broadbent. HBO is generally very tight-lipped about Game of Thrones spoilers, but Broadbent himself spilled a bit about the role in March. "I'm a maester, an archmaester," he told ScreenCrush. »

The second show to be pulled while still broadcasting is upon us.
Time After Time, one of a plethora of new time travel series to land on air during the 2016-17 season, has been canceled by ABC after five low-rated airings.
Ironically, it's one of the only shows with a long history, tying back not only to a 70's movie of the same title but focusing on H.G. Wells, one of the most well-known time traveling characters of all time.
The idea was H.G. Wells was transported in his time machine to modern day Manhattan in his hunt for Jack the Ripper.
Yes, as if time travel and Wells weren't enough, Jack the Ripper was along for the ride.
Once Wells arrives in Manhattan, he's not only captivated by a world he would have otherwise never known might exist, »

Another one bites the dust.
In a TV season in which broadcast networks have expressed patience and an unwillingness to cancel, ABC has done the latter. The Disney-owned network has canceled Kevin Williamson's time travel drama Time After Time after five low-rated episodes.
Based on the novel Time After Time, written by Karl Alexander, the Warner Bros. Television drama used the 1979 novel and movie as a starting point to chronicle the epic adventures of young H.G. Wells (Freddie Stroma, UnREAL) and his time machine. Josh Bowman (Revenge) co-starred.
The series debuted to dismal reviews and ratings — »

Time travel seems to be a very popular concept with the TV execs and three time travel shows have launched this season. Unfortunately, the public seems to be less interested. Timeless looks likely to be cancelled by NBC and Making History is performing poorly for Fox. What about Time After Time on ABC? How's it doing in the ratings? Will there be a second season?An hourlong drama, Time After Time stars Freddie Stroma, Josh Bowman, Génesis Rodríguez, Nicole Ari Parker, Will Chase, Jordan Sparks, and Jennifer Ferrin.

Winter and spring television seasons are the most crowded.
Maybe that's the reason they also deliver the most duds.
It's not even April yet, and we have more than enough disappointments to get us through the entire year, with another couple of hands full of new programs yet to air this spring!
Some of the series' misfortune comes because there seems to be an impasse between critics and viewers, and a critical review could mean viewers never see a show, but those who do fall in love with it. What does that even mean?
Do you agree or disagree that the following 11 programs were disappointments? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
1. 24: Legacy - Fox There were big hopes for this reboot with a stellar cast and the writing team back on board to usher in a new hero in place of Kiefer Sutherland's Jack Bauer. The performances feel phoned in, »

There are some really good plot developments as well as some seriously problematic elements in Time After Time Season 1 Episode 4
After Time After Time Season 1 Episode 3 that focused almost completely on fleshing out most of the the relationships, this offering reveals some excellent backstory to explain how so many people knew the time travelers were coming.
Thankfully, less time is spent on the labored romantic relationship between Wells and Jane although we still have to put up with a little sugary morning nonsense.

Series premieres are incredibly tricky balancing acts between good world-building and engaging action.
This is perfectly illustrated by the opening scene, depicting one of Jack the Ripper's brutal murders, followed by drinks at the home of H.G. Wells where the killer strolls in, totally accepted as just one of the guys.
The show's central characters – H.G. Wells as portrayed by Freddie Stroma and Josh Bowman's Dr. John Stevenson aka "Jack the Ripper" – are perfectly displayed in contrast to each other when H.G. reveals his time machine.
While the rest of his guests tease him about having too much time on his hands, Stevenson immediately jumps into the seat and wants to take it for a spin.

You can’t change the channel these days without stumbling upon a time-travel show. The newest one to join the craze: ABC’s cat-and-mouse thriller Time After Time, an adaptation of the 1979 movie of the same name, which itself was based on Karl Alexander’s novel.
Like many a Kevin Williamson-produced drama, Sunday’s two-hour series premiere opens with a murder. This one takes place in 1893 and is the handiwork of the dashing and psychopathic Dr. John Stevenson aka Jack the Ripper (played by Revenge‘s Josh Bowman »
