‘Deadwood’ Creator David Milch Diagnosed With Alzheimer’s
David Milch, the creator of “Deadwood,” revealed his Alzheimer’s diagnosis in an interview published Tuesday.

“As best I understand it, which is minimally, I have a deterioration in the organization of my brain,” Milch told Vulture. “And it’s progressive. And in some ways discouraging. In more than some ways — in every way I can think of.”

Beginning five years ago, people around him noticed instances of “imperfect recall and tardy recall and short temper,” Milch said. “I became more and more of an acquired taste.”

He also struggled with his writing process, which was characterized by “a generalized incertitude and a growing incapacity.” About a year ago, Milch finally underwent a brain scan and received the diagnosis.

Milch created the acclaimed HBO Western series “Deadwood,” which aired from 2004 to 2006. He also wrote “Deadwood: The Movie,” which is a continuation of the original series and will see most of the original cast return,

Taylor Swift Showed Up to the Time 100 Gala, and All of a Sudden,
Taylor Swift is ready to show off her mystical new era on the red carpet. On April 23, the 29-year-old singer stepped out for the Time 100 gala in NYC dressed like a princess, after making the magazine's list for a third time. Her whole look perfectly fit the aesthetic she's been teasing on Instagram for weeks which once again begs the question: What's going on, Taylor?!

Theories have been floating around social media since Taylor set a mysterious countdown on her accounts and website for April 26. Swifties are hard at work decoding what each one of Taylor's posts means (like . . . a chicken in sunglasses?) but its still unclear whether the palm trees, butterflies, and rainbows signify a new album, single, music video, or none of the above. Whatever it is, you can bet fans are "ready for it." Sorry, I had to.

Here's How Arya Got Those Gnarly Scars on Game of Thrones - There's Just 1 Problem
Arya Stark is all grown up. Over the course of eight seasons of Game of Thrones, the younger Stark daughter has gone from tomboy tween to teenage assassin to a savvy, tough young woman. She takes another big adult step in the second episode of the final season, when she sleeps with her old friend and crush Gendry on the eve of the battle against the White Walkers at Winterfell. During their love scene, Gendry's gaze - and the camera - focuses on the scars on Arya's torso. They're a sharp reminder of just how much she's been through over the years.

The most visible and largest scars on Arya's side and abdomen come from Arya's own near brush with death. Back in season six, Arya was in the midst of her Faceless Man storyline, training to be an assassin and learning to push every bit of her true

Review: Avengers: Endgame Fills Three-Hour Runtime with Epic Action and Tremendous Heart
Warning: This review contains very minor spoilers highlighting the broad strokes and highlights of Avengers: Endgame

Is this the last of the Avengers movies as we know them? Avengers: Endgame seems to seems to indicate as much, setting the table (in surprising and satisfying fashion) for a very different cinematic future for Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.

The last time audiences saw the Avengers assembled was in 2018’s blockbuster Avengers: Infinity War, which ended on a heckuva cliffhanger — evil super-villain Thanos (Josh Brolin) managed to gather all six infinity stones, snapped his fingers (while wearing the all-powerful, world-ending Infinity Gauntlet) and
