Because HBO is making us wait 900 years for the final season of Game Of Thrones, they’re releasing the other shows they make you wait 900 years between seasons. One of them is Westworld! If you’ve been sobbing since 2016 while looking for a robot Annie Oakley uprising, dry ‘dem tears. The second season is coming in just a few weeks. And HBO released the full first trailer today.
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.
