'Game of Thrones': Get your fill of dragons with this brand-new Season 4 trailer
31 minutes ago
As Tom Petty once sang, "the waiting is the hardest part" - and if you're a "Game of Thrones" fan right now you certainly know the feeling. But never fear! There's only a month left to go before the HBO series' Season 4 premiere, and to tide you over until then the network has released yet another tantalizingly brief glimpse of the forthcoming batch of episodes. Check out the full promo below, while I go and figure out how to shoehorn "I will answer injustice with justice" into a conversation this week. "Game of Thrones" Season 4 premieres April 6 on HBO. »

Recap: 'The Amazing Race: All-Stars' - 'Welcome to the Jungle'
39 minutes ago
I suppose that certain factors on "The Amazing Race" are out of the control of the producers. If your teams are in China and you're determined to get them to Malaysian Borneo, if there are only two evening flights, there are only two evening flights. And if there's a three-hour gap between the arrival of the two flights, then there's a three-hour gap between the arrival of the two flights. And if there are only six tickets available on the first flight or perhaps only three tickets available on the second, then that's just what it is. But if you then design a Leg in which the Roadblock is a straight-forward one-at-a-time task and the Detour includes at least one option that requires basically no effort at all, you've constructed a Leg in which six teams have almost limitless margins-for-error and the other three teams have no margin-for-error at all »

Review: 'The Walking Dead' - 'Alone'
43 minutes ago
A review of tonight's "The Walking Dead" coming up just as soon as I offer you a serious piggyback... Last week, I suggested that Scott Gimple would do well to follow a Keep It Simple, Stupid mantra whenever possible. "Alone," unfortunately, suggests that approach is not infallible, as it was only slightly more complicated than "Still" — following the Maggie, Bob and Sasha trio in addition to more adventures of Daryl and Beth — without being nearly as effective. I appreciate what the Bob and Sasha end of the episode was trying to do in taking two relatively new and largely underserved (Sasha more than Bob) characters and let us get to know them better in the same way we did with Beth last week. And Larry Gilliard Jr. continues to work wonders with what little he's given at Bob; there's an ease and self-assurance to his performance that the show very »

'Real Housewives of Atlanta': Was Kenya right about Porsha's marriage?
1 hour ago
Remember when NeNe Leakes was the Zen goddess of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta"? Well, that's over. I realize that, after perching on her high horse for so long, she needs to get back into the mix in an explosive way lest Bravo kick her to the curb where Sheree Whitfield has been sleeping under a cardboard box. We all know what that means -- bring on the shade! And I don't mean a sunhat! NeNe isn't the only one kicking up a fuss this week. Because the season finale is right around the corner, everyone's dragging some rusty old argument out of a box to batter it around for a bit. Remember Porsha's divorce? This week, she's not the one fussing over it -- no, that's Peter, Gregg and Kenya. Go figure. Before we get to that fight (let's not confuse them; there are so, so many), Marlo confesses »

SNL' brilliantly lampoons Jared Leto and Harrison Ford in 'Katt Williams Show' sketch
2 hours ago
Last night's "SNL" sketch "Pimpin' Pimpin' Pimpin' with Katt WIlliams" (embedded below) only got a "B-" from our famed "SNL" recapper Ryan McGee, but I actually think it was one of the strongest sketches of the Lena Dunham-hosted episode. Not only was Pharoah Williams brilliant as the controversy-plagued comedian, but the rest of the celebrity impersonations were spot-on as well. Take, for instance: Jared "Most Zac Efron-Lookin' Son Of A Bitch" Leto (Brooks Wheelan) And how about: Liza "Ellen Said You Looked Like a Transvestite" Minnelli (Lena Dunham) Also, let's give it up for: Harrison "What The Hell Happened To You" Ford (Taran Killam) And last but not least, who could forget: Lena "Some Lady Named Lena Dunham" Dunham (Noel Wells) Oh, and these products. I mean, c'mon. Honestly, this gets an A+ for the "Darth Vader wearing Uggs" joke alone. Follow Riot on Twitter »
