‘Game of Thrones’ New Director Teases Season 6, Why He’s Treating Show Like ‘Lost’

9 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Mind-boggling.

That’s the way Jack Bender – one of five newly announced directors who’ll be responsible for two episodes each in the coming sixth season of “Game of Thrones” – describes the next batch of episodes on deck for HBO’s hit drama.

Bender himself will direct episodes 5 and 6 next season. And before he leaves for Belfast in a few weeks to start shooting, a commitment that will take him through the rest of the year, Bender gave Bgr a small taste of what it’s like to be attached to and have a hand in shaping one of the buzziest, most obsessed-over shows of the modern era.

Naturally, he’s not coughing up any secrets of what’s coming down the pike in Westeros — Bender, after all, is a seasoned director whose past experience has included working on everything from “Under the Dome” to “The Sopranos” to “Lost,” a »

'The Sopranos' Rewind: Season 1, Episode 5: 'College'

1 July 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Welcome to the fifth installment of our summer trip through "The Sopranos" season 1. When I revisited early seasons of "The Wire," as well as the whole run of "Deadwood," I did separate versions of each review for newcomers and veterans, but over time realized that the newcomers weren't commenting much, if at all, and that it therefore made sense to simply do one review. Any significant spoilers for episodes beyond the one being reviewed will be contained in a separate section at the end of the review; so long as you avoid that, and the comments, you should be fine. Thoughts on the fifth episode, "College," coming up just as soon as I find $50,000 in krugerrands and a .45 automatic while hunting for Easter eggs... "Are you in the Mafia?" -Meadow There are masterpieces of the moment, and there are masterpieces for all time. Which, I wondered as I began this project, »

'Thor: The Dark World' Director Alan Taylor Says His Marvel Experience Was "Particularly Wrenching"

30 June 2015 6:05 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Creative freedom or directorial shackles? Depending on who you ask, taking on a big budget blockbuster is either the chance to try some exciting things with lots of money and big effects teams, or finding yourself in constant meetings with executives who have an endless series of conflicting notes serving various needs. For director Alan Taylor, who cut his teeth on TV with "Game Of Thrones," "The Sopranos," "Mad Men," "Deadwood" and more, his leap to tentpole movies with Marvel's "Thor: The Dark World" was fine...until shooting wrapped. "I’ve done two [blockbuster movies; the other being this week's 'Terminator Genisys'] and I’ve learned that you don’t make a $170 million movie with someone else’s money and not have to collaborate a lot," Taylor told Uproxx. "The Marvel experience was particularly wrenching because I was sort of given absolute freedom while we were shooting, and then in post it turned into a different »

Edie Falco on ‘Nurse Jackie’ Finale, What’s Next and Why She Loves Series TV: Q&A

27 June 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Edie Falco works her last shift as “Nurse Jackie” on Sunday. It’s a testament to Falco’s skill that she was able to segue so quickly after “The Sopranos” into the skin of another enduring TV character. As “Nurse Jackie” wraps its seven-season run, the four-time Emmy winner spoke with Variety about endings, beginnings, why she loves working in series television and why she still hasn’t seen every episode of “Sopranos.”

How does it feel to be bringing this chapter of your career to a close?

Most of us never know when the end is coming. You’re kind of half prepared a lot of the time. It’s almost like someone you know having a disease — you know they’re going to go at some point. Will they last another year? Six months? Every time your show is picked up for another season that’s great news — crazy great news. »

Father's Day lessons from Walter White, Don Draper and Tywin Lannister

19 June 2015 2:27 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

From lessons about sex to hiding a criminal alter-ego, the bad dads of Mad Men, Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad have much parenting advice to offer

Father’s Day is the perfect opportunity for dads to self-reflect. It’s a chance for them to ask if they’re really doing the best job they can, to go back to the unread parenting books they bought feverishly during their partner’s pregnancy and learn how to be a better role model for their children.

The problem with this idea, though, is that books are stupid and boring. In fact, no, you’re right, it’d be much better just to watch a load of dads from the golden age of TV and copy what they do instead. Spoilers follow, if you’re the sort of ninny who gets het up about these things.

TWC signs first look with Alik Sakharov

16 June 2015 11:12 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

TV Review: ‘The Making Of the Mob: New York’

12 June 2015 8:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Stephen David Entertainment is certainly having its moment, but it’s one motivated more by economics than creativity — or history. The company has mastered producing a form of docu-hybrid that mixes heavily produced historical reenactments with expert commentary — not a TV movie, exactly, but enough of one to not scare off the documentary-phobic. The latest example: “The Making of the Mob: New York,” an eight-part series for AMC, which will merely remind fans of quality drama how much they miss “Boardwalk Empire.” Many of the names are the same, but everything else about this production screams of an excuse to trot out mob movie reruns.

Narrated by Ray Liotta (whose breakthrough role in “Goodfellas” will be the first movie the channel pairs with the program), “Making of the Mob” begins in 1905 and proceeds through decades of mob history. As with David’s “The World Wars” and another eight-part series currently airing on National Geographic Channel, »

Edie Falco reflects on seven seasons of 'Nurse Jackie,' previews series finale [Exclusive Video]

11 June 2015 11:41 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

There was "tons of crying, a big party on set afterwards," says actress Edie Falco about the feeling on set after shooting the last episode of "Nurse Jackie," which airs on June 28. In a lot of ways, it's a different experience from when "The Sopranos" ended, "but the saying goodbye part feels the same. It just feels kinda yucky. You've gotten to know these people really well … and then you say goodbye. It's the nature of this business, but it's never easy." (Watch our complete video chat below.) -Break- Here's an exclusive sneak peek at the Showtime Emmy Awards campaign Falco doesn't reveal any specifics about the finale, but "I'm very happy with the way it ends," she says. "There's so much pressure about this 'last episode syndrome' about having to make it the most special thing, [but] it feels in keeping with the show throughout, and I couldn't ask more »

Yael Stone on ‘Orange Is the New Black’ Competing as Drama: I ‘Revel in Our Rebel Status’

11 June 2015 9:01 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Yael Stone plays Lorna Morello on “Orange Is the New Black,” a character who is deep-down a good-natured person, even if she proves why we can’t believe everything a criminal tells us. Going into season three, where we find Lorna paying the price for showing Miss Rosa (Barbara Rosenblat) some mercy, Stone talks character development, Emmy nominations and how she accidentally managed to say “Christopher” just like Drea de Matteo did on “The Sopranos.”

Last season, we found out that Lorna wasn’t all she seemed. Did the writers tip you off ahead of time to help you prep for this role?

The thing about this show is that we never get any prep for anything and that’s part of the fun of it. It’s this wild ride: never any preparation, always surprises around the corner. I never know, but I always know it’s going to be good. »

Best of Late Night TV: James Corden's Must-See Nuzzle Game, Fallon's Quadruple Crown Race

9 June 2015 12:20 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

Nick Offerman, Ellie Kemper, and Thomas Middleditch were on "The Late Late Show with James Corden" Monday night, and they seemed to have a lot of fun -- when not being traumatized by having to nuzzle a snake (Nick) and a sumo wrestler (Ellie). Here they discuss -- and demonstrate -- who is the best fake smoker: And here's the fun -- but scary -- game called "Nuzzle Waaa?" where everyone had to be blindfolded and then nuzzle something and be the first to shout out what it was. James and Ellie were partners opposite Nick and Thomas. What's worse -- the snake or the sumo guy? The sumo guy seemed to enjoy it, »

Watch 'The Sopranos' From the Beginning With Alan Sepinwall's 'Rewind' Reviews

3 June 2015 8:05 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

If you've thought about using the summer hiatus to catch up on TV, you might consider (re)watching "The Sopranos" along with HitFix's Alan Sepinwall, who will be taking readers through the first season one episode at a time. Sepinwall, who covered "The Sopranos" for the Newark Star-Ledger, the paper a bathrobe-clad Tony habitually picks up from the bottom of his driveway, from its fourth season on, picking up the baton from his colleague Matt Zoller Seitz. He literally wrote the book, or a book, on the show — The Revolution Was Televised, whose chapter on "The Sopranos" is also available as a separate purchase — and conducted the first, and for a long while only, interview on the finale with creator David Chase, the source of the famously provocative phrase, "It's all there."  So how does "The Sopranos" — the name of the pilot as well as the show — look now, in »

Netflix, Amazon Poised to Steal Cable and Broadcast’s Thunder at Emmys

2 June 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When it comes to TV awards, digital may be the new cable.

Internet-streaming services Netflix and Amazon are producing award-worthy original programming — and Hulu, Yahoo and AOL are also jumping into the game, looking to garner industry accolades for their content investments and the marketing lift they provide.

The digital insurgents haven’t fully crossed the divide yet, having been shut out of major Emmy wins so far. The highest-profile victories have been David Fincher’s directing win for “House of Cards” season one, and “Orange Is the New Black” co-star Uzo Aduba’s (pictured above) guest actress Emmy last year.

But the tide appears to be shifting. “Cards” star Kevin Spacey won the Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award this year; “Oitnb” picked up two SAG wins; and Amazon Studios’ “Transparent” won a Globe for best comedy series, while star Jeffrey Tambor nabbed lead actor.

Review: "F/X" (1986) Starring Bryan Brown, Kino Lorber Blu-ray Special Edition

29 May 2015 6:01 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Todd Garbarini

Director Robert Mandel's F/X is one of the most entertaining and compulsively watchable thrillers of 1986. I originally caught up with it on VHS and, while I was impressed with the film, the ending I found to be both hokey and frustrating, mostly due to the completely out-of-place 1982 song “Just an Illusion” by Imagination that plays over the end credits. I felt that it undermined all that preceded it. However, like William Friedkin's To Live and Die in La (1985) and David Lynch's Blue Velvet (1986), F/X is a film that would only grow on me after subsequent repeated viewings. I learned to forgive the inclusion of this song as the final minutes should really be viewed as a visual pun on the film’s overall theme, which begs the question “What is real and what is fiction?”

F/X, which was released on Friday, »

Matthew Weiner: Mad Men Ending Not Intended to Be Ambiguous

As a writer on the final season of The Sopranos, Matthew Weiner helped oversee the most contentious series finale of all time. The final moments of Weiner's Mad Men has not caused nearly as much consternation, but it has invited some level of speculation about what exactly happened between Don Draper's meditative enlightenment and the creation of Coca-Cola's classic "Hilltop" ad. »

James Gandolfini was approached about appearing in The Human Centipede 3

I'm currently in the midst of re-watching The Sopranos and discovering all over again just what a great talent James Gandolfini was. The actor sadly passed away in 2013 but still had several films in the can including Enough Said and The Drop, but according to The Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence) director Tom Six, it's possible that the sequel to the body-horror franchise may have been among them. Tom Six mentioned in an interview with Entertainment Weekly that he had »
