Here’s what’s up in the world of TV for Sunday, April 24. All times are Eastern.

Top picks

Game Of Thrones (HBO, 9 p.m.): We have learned to pay attention when Ian McShane curses at us, educated as we were by years of Deadwood. As such, we heeded his memorable response to inadvertently spoiling his upcoming Game Of Thrones role: “Get a fucking life, it’s only tits and dragons.” This was made...

Top picks

The Good Wife (CBS, 9 p.m.): What else is there to say about The Good Wife that we haven’t already said? It’s the rare network drama still able to go head-to-head with cable at the Emmys, the home of a tour de force performance by Julianna Margulies, a haven for character actors thanks to its never-ending...

That’s President Donald Trump at a cabinet meeting today. Hang on, what’s that on the table in front of him?

Oh hell yeah, baby. It’s the poster. Incredible. You may remember this poster from this tweet:

Why did Donald Trump bring the poster to a cabinet meeting? I don’t know, honestly. The original poster was in reference to a series of sanctions on Iran that were lifted as part of Barack...

Winter and dick references are coming in the McBride Of Thrones trailer

With the premiere of a new season of Games Of Thrones comes the attendant blitz of online nonsense trying to loosely affiliate itself with the massive HBO hit. Perhaps none of these efforts were dumber than Chili’s bizzarely terrible “Game Of Tacos” ads, but nobody can add dumb to something quite like Danny McBride. The man who excels at playing clueless assholes, it seems, can dumb up just...

Here’s what we know about the final season of Game of Thrones: it will be bloody; Ghost and Gendry will play major roles; Jon Snow’s hair will complete its arc; and, um, everybody enjoyed working on Game of Thrones’ final season. That’s it. We’re sorry. To make up for it, here’s yet another entry in the heart-swelling saga of screen sisters Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams’ IRL...

HBO’s been dropping Game Of Thrones teasers left and right since yesterday. Two arrived on Sunday night—titled “Together” and “Survival,” they paint an optimistic portrait of the surviving characters banding together to take on the White Walkers. “We must fight together now,” intones Peter Dinklage’s Tyrion in the former teaser. “Or die.”

The latter promo teases a reunion that’s...

Your guide to who died this week on Game Of Thrones

Valar morghulis. All men must die, and after two unexpectedly quiet weeks with nothing but offscreen death, “The Long Night” gave the Game Of Thrones death poolers a chance to update their ballots—as well as they could through all the ash and wind and chaotic darkness, at least. We might be updating these numbers next week as the smoke literally clears around Winterfell, but as best as we...

Aaron Of House Rodgers, Quarterback For The Green Bay Packers And, Uh, King Of The First Men Or Something, has a whole lot to say about Game Of Thrones. After having made a cameo in the second-to-last episode of the final season—a cameo that, according to him, nobody, including us, has been able to properly identify—Rodgers eagerly...

As has become a beloved annual tradition, HBO has released an advance set of pictures from Game Of Thrones’ upcoming season, and George R.R. Martin has released word that fans should not expect to see a new book in 2015 . This year those items complement each other, as this new gallery of fifth-season images captures its characters just as they were informed of Martin’s announcement, and of...

Even the dang Hound cried while watching The Red Wedding, so you're not alone

Watching Game of Thrones is a trip—from unexpected deaths to betrayals to incest, the show keeps you on the edge of your seat while occasionally culling a tear or two out from you. As it turns out, the actors are often as shocked and saddened by what they see on screen, despite being the ones delivering the deathblows. Take The Hound’s Rory McCann, for instance, who found a certain bloody...

HBO wants Game Of Thrones to last 10 seasons, probably won’t make a movie

A few years ago, Game Of Thrones producer Frank Doelger scared the petrified dragon eggs out of HBO when he declared that the show would only go on for seven seasons. The idea was that the people behind Game Of Thrones don’t want the audience to get sick of it as it drags its feet in anticipation of George R.R. Martin doing that thing he’s supposed to be doing (whatever it is). Now, to some...

The Wall is where Game Of Thrones goes to be dull

DVR Club is back to pore over the highlights from last night’s TV—namely, Game Of Thrones’ season premiere. John Teti and Katie Rife, both avid Thrones fans, are here to share a couple possible interpretations of the ominous flashback that kicks off Cersei Lannister’s fifth-season storyline in “The Wars To Come.” Our editors also complain about the boring old Wall, where nothing happens, and...

How Game Of Thrones filmed a battle that’s never been done before

On last week’s Game Of Thrones, viewers witnessed an encounter between three drastically different forces that, until that point, had never graced the screen at the the same time. The episode’s final set piece saw the disciplined and resolute Lannister army come face-to-face with both the untethered chaos of a Dothraki hoard and the unparalleled power of a flying, fire-breathing dragon in a...

George R.R. Martin wanted Game Of Thrones to run for 13 seasons

Martin wanted <i>Game Of Thrones </i>to run for 13 seasons<em></em></a>

Ever since HBO begrudgingly confirmed that Game Of Thrones will be ending after eight seasons, it’s been clear that the only people involved who really wanted the show to end at all (other than maybe some of the actors) were showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. It’s still a big hit for HBO, so the network clearly would’ve been happy to air Game Of Thrones forever, but now George R.R....

Neil Marshall on ripping off heads and making Game Of Thrones set people on fire

Even if you don’t know him by name, the odds are increasingly good you’ve seen something Neil Marshall has directed. In 2002, the English director wrote and shot his first feature film, the cult werewolf flick Dog Soldiers. For the next decade, he continued to create inspired genre work like The Descent, Doomsday, and Centurion. Starting in 2012, however, his work was seen by an entirely new...

[Spoilers for Game Of Thrones season eight, episode six.]

The best way to enjoy Game Of Thrones’ series finale is as an unexpected punchline to one of the world’s most expensive, meticulously produced jokes. Aside from a few scenes of genuine drama, the majority of the episode played out like a lavish parody of the show’s earlier seasons, its tone veering wildly between self-seriousness and...

Game Of Thrones director to make a Sinbad movie

Emmy-award-winning TV director Miguel Sapochnik has signed on to make a Sinbad movie, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Unfortunately, that should not be misinterpreted as a cinematic vehicle for ’90s-era comedy genius David “Sinbad” Adkins. This will be a film adaptation of the 14th-century Middle Eastern story-cycle of Sinbad The Sailor. Which also has the potential to be pretty good,...
