‘Game of Thrones’ creators reveal why their original pilot was an epic disaster

The first episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones was a remarkable piece of television that showed the world that it was actually possible to make a TV show out of George R.R. Martin’s sprawling fantasy epic. However, things didn’t always look as good as they did in the final product, as the show’s creators recently revealed a podcast called Scriptnotes that’s hosted by screenwriters John August and Craig Mazin.

Video shows how to replace peanut butter in a Reese’s Cup with Oreo filling

As I’ve mentioned countless times during my career at BGR, the Internet is a miraculous place full of wondrous things. Earlier this week I discovered Frinkiac, the incredible search engine that lets you find the still frames that correspond with any Simpsons quote you want to find. Along with the pyramids, the Sistine Chapel and the moon landing, I consider this one of humanity’s finest achievements.

While the video I’m about to show you doesn’t come close to the miracle of the ultimate Simpsons search engine, it’s definitely running a strong second place in the race for the coolest thing I’ve found on the web this week.

Time Warner’s quest to ruin Hulu shows the TV industry is pathetically shortsighted

Remember back in the late 1990s when recording companies kept insisting that everyone had to buy an entire album just to get the one or two songs they actually wanted? That didn’t work out so well for them after Napster and other music sharing services made it impossible for them to force consumers to buy CDs. The TV industry is facing a similar situation right now and, like the music industry before it, it’s crawling into a shell and hoping technological progress just goes away. More →

Only McDonald’s could make a kale salad with more calories than a Double Big Mac

Only McDonald’s could make a kale salad with more calories than a Double Big Mac

I was initially skeptical when I learned McDonald’s was planning to try making kale a selling point for its meals. But thanks to a new report from CBCNews, I now realized that it was all part of an elaborate ruse for tricking people into thinking something healthy when in reality they’re eating something with more calories, fat and salt than a Double Big Mac. You heard that right: It turns out that McDonald’s kale Caesar salad will pack on more pounds than one of its larger burgers. More →
