‘Game of Thrones’ episode 7 preview gives us a taste of things to come

In less than a month we’ll go into Game of Thrones withdrawal, as HBO’s top show is nearing the end of season six. Episode 6 may not have been the most interesting episode this season — in fact, it was pretty terrible — but it still reminded us that there are so many plots and subplots to keep track of. Episode 7 might be a lot more interesting if the first trailer is any indication.

Now, HBO has released a slew of new images from the upcoming episode, offering us yet another a taste of what’s to come. More →

One of your favorite ‘Game of Thrones’ characters now has an awesome backstory

Long before Game of Thrones season 6 kicked off on HBO, book readers began to worry that the show would spoil many of the upcoming plot points in the remaining books that George R.R. Martin has yet to complete. They were right — the show has now moved into uncharted territory — but that doesn’t mean the books aren’t still going to have plenty of surprises of their own.

Watch: John Oliver needs these things to be invented immediately

In his regular HBO show that features “the fewest games and the least impressive thrones,” John Oliver has a segment in which he tries to understand why some things still exist, like daylight savings time or the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition. But he’s now looking to figure out why some things that we desperately need haven’t been invented yet.

Last Week Tonight is on vacation for Memorial Day, so Oliver recorded a YouTube exclusive video to tell us some of the things he’d like to see invented to make our lives easier. More →

Game of Thrones is falling apart

Game of Thrones is falling apart

May 29th, 2016. Remember that date.

I can’t pinpoint exactly when it happened, but I remember how sad I was when I finally came to terms with the fact that The Sopranos had gone from being one of the best television series the world had ever seen to being a disappointment. It might not have been until the show’s final season, but the writers simply ran out of steam and the actors followed closely behind. Some would say that they pulled things together for the finale, which was certainly one of the most polarizing conclusions a popular show has ever seen. But no one would argue that The Sopranos wrapped up on a level that was nowhere close to where it began.

With that in mind, let’s have a quick chat about Game of Thrones. More →

Watch John Oliver tear into the ridiculous US presidential primary system

HBO’s John Oliver takes issue with the way the United States chooses its president every four years. Specifically, Oliver focused on the way primaries and caucuses work, and how the system isn’t as democratic as regular voters might think. Oliver argues that either party can circumvent the will of the people by taking advantage of certain loopholes in the rulebooks, and they essentially bypass the primary vote if they want to.

Jon Snow is a fearless leader and Ramsay Bolton is a fierce sociopath, but it’s not men who rule Westeros. At least not in episode four of Game of Thrones, that much is clear.
