A rumored third season of the confounding HBO show True Detective starring Mahershala Ali has been confirmed. Series creator Nic Pizzolatto will will write and co-direct with Jeremy Saulnier. With Mahershala attached, at the very least, there is potential for sex appeal and drama. But as we saw happen in season 2, well, there are still plenty of ways for them to fuck it up.
I don’t understand some people. For example D.B. Weiss and David Benioff, the showrunners for HBO’s hit series Game of Thrones. It’s no secret that their show, which I absolutely love, takes place in a world with magic, brutality and a hierarchy of white people plotting against each other for the Iron Throne. But riddle me this; why are all the people of color either slaves, whores or dickless warriors all aiding the white folks with their fight? And with GoT’s imminent conclusion on the horizon, David and D.B. are trading in their pretend dragons for Grand Dragons of the KKK with their new show Confederate, a re-imagined tale of what life would be like if slavery (yes, that slavery) still existed in modern times. The public has been all kinds of “Aw Hell Nah!” about this mess for quite a while, and last night HBO finally responded after a new hashtag on Twitter blew up their world like Loras and Margaery Tyrell.
It’s this kind of situation that makes you want to look tiredly at a famous cretin after they issue the standard apology and go “Uh, huh. Thank you. NEXT!!!,” because celebrity stupids apologizing for crap behavior will be queued up until the sun finally hits earth.
Bill Maher barely slept a wink after dropping the n-bomb on his show Friday night, and he’s way sorry. Can you imagine the gritted teeth as pompous ass Bill okayed his publicist releasing this? He probably cracked a molar.
Game of Thrones is ending. As of 2018, there won’t be any more severing of penises, baring of tits for dragons, or medieval Peter Dinklage hotness. EW reports that HBO has confirmed that season eight will be the last one for the mega-popular series (25 million people watch it!). George R.R. Martin (aka that guy who looks like Santa Claus’ disheveled brother who lives in a sea shanty) only wrote so many books. So it had to end eventually, right? Several 1000 dudebrahs in “Crows Before Hoes” tees just snarled at me en masse.
EW asked the network’s new programming president Casey Bloys if he plans to go along with showrunners’ David Benioff and Dan Weiss’ oft-stated desire to end their fantasy hit with season 8.
Bloys said yes, that is the current plan – the first time somebody at HBO has confirmed this.
Not only will season eight be the end, but it will only be six episodes. Bloys was asked if there will be any spin-offs in the future, and revealed that the show-running dungeon masters of GoT are too busy writing the next season to even consider it.
It’s probably only a six episode ending because dragons breathe fire and the main villains are creatures made out of ice. The dragons have got this. It will end with triumph over puddles. And more tits out for dragons. And probably a rape or ten. *sad face*
The recipient of the “Breakout Sexy Piece Of This Year’s Emmy Awards Award” is voted for by the Internet and this year it goes to the guy who helmed all of HBO’s occult-y cop show True Detective. His name is Cary Joji Fukunaga and he also won a Best Director Emmy last night! Congrats, Cary. You and your French braid had Twitter fanning its collective nethers all of last night. See, it’s ok to objectify a bitch as long as his ass isn’t spinning around on a platform and dating werewolves for publicity.
Horn-horn (© Allison) Game of Thrones nerds have long drooled with anticipation over the eventual filming and airing of a scene straight from the books in which brother-fuckin’ hell-mama Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) struts that naked ass (and naked boobs, and naked wooka) out of a church for all to jizz over. Unfortunately for them, this halt is screeching. It turns out that Croatia (where much of Game of Thrones is filmed) isn’t big on their churches hosting kitty-kat on parade.
TMZ reports that the local film commission has denied GOT (yes, I am lazy enough to employ that acronym) the permit to shoot the scene in the Church of St. Nicholas in Dubrovnik, Croatia. The churchies hold major sway there and, like many churchies, hate sex and bodies. This is despite their country’s name looking like it’s pronounced “crotch-ya” (© Allison, again, she’s on today and should have just written this post).
A source says that the scene is a pivotal one
to boners to the storyline and they’re not gonna strike it from the script. You know there’s one exec over at HBO who’s all “I have been waiting five goddam seasons to see Lena Headey’s bushwoman come out of that fucking church and my mental fap file will not be denied!”
Anyway, that particular part of production is currently at a stand-still. No word yet on whether or not construction has begun on a mock church front from which Leda Headey will walk out baring her gifts. And if she HAS to wear SOMETHING, it should be that hainty t-shirt gently bordering her hey na na.
Check out pics below of Lena Headey arriving for her Jimmy Kimmel appearance earlier this summer, and from the Game of Thrones Season 4 premiere in NYC last year.
