Not much is known about the different “Game of Thrones” spinoffs in development in HBO, though it has been confirmed that all four are prequels and will feature no existing characters. Courtesy of an IGN interview with Jane Goldman, who’s writing one of the proposed spinoffs, we now know that hers will be “recognizable as a past event” to those familiar with Westeros.
Though she emphasizes that she “can say absolutely nothing” in terms of plot details, the “Kick-Ass” screenwriter responds in the affirmative when asked if her spinoff will feature any magic or supernatural elements. Goldman is developing the show alongside George R. R. Martin, and says that she’s “had the pleasure of going to spend some time with him and working on things »

Teen Wolf's Ryan Kelley Talks 'Crazy' Final Episodes, Laments Parrish and Lydia's Unexplored 'Connection'
One of Sunday’s back-to-back episodes of Teen Wolf (MTV, 8/7c) reveals the name of the mysterious, corpse-looking Big Bad of the final season — and it’s a mouthful. Fortunately, Ryan Kelley has a helpful alternative for fans.
“We just called him ‘Pulpy’ on set,” the actor tells TVLine. “He’s just this gooey, slippery, nasty guy — real creepy.”

Unfortunately, the villain’s weirdly adorable nickname is one of the few specific details Kelley can still recall from the final 10 episodes’ unconventional shoot.

Stephen King Has Confidence in JJ Abrams for Castle Rock

If you doubt the validity of the aforementioned statement, just take a moment to allow your memory to remind you of how many of King’s books have been adapted for the big screen and become classics.

Game of Thrones Star Reacts ('Oh God') to That Episode 6 Dragon Reveal
Warning: This post contains major spoilers for Sunday’s Game of Thrones.
Remember when we thought the worst thing a White Walker could do was turn a human into a scary, extremely dangerous, blue-eyed footsoldier of the dead? How quaint.
Sunday’s Game of Thrones (read full recap here) seemed to give the Night King’s forces the ultimate weapon when it revealed that Daenerys’ dragon Viserion — killed by a frozen spear thrown by the undead head honcho himself during the battle at Eastwatch — had been turned into a wight.
A really gigantic, flying, even-more-lethal-than-normal wight.

Well stick a frozen spear in me and call me a zombie dragon… because that’s pretty much exactly what Game of Thrones does in this week’s episode.
The hour finds Jon and his band of severely cold brothers wildly outnumbered north of The Wall, as multitudes of the Night King’s forces descend upon the raggedy band of fighters. And when Daenerys and her pretties ride to their rescue, the Night’s King hoists a magical icy projectile of horror and sends it into Viserion »
“Bachelor in Paradise” is Profiting off of Sexual Misconduct
Reality television does bank on sensationalism to a degree, to boost their ratings but are there certain topics that can harm more than help? The “Bachelor in Paradise” series has recently had it’s share of bad publicity because of allegations of sexual misconduct, filed in court by one of the cast members. It appears that the idea of sexual misconduct is being viewed as entertainment more than what it really is. That is a social ill that requires correction. Seriousness of the charges While sexual assault may be entertainment for some, there is a huge segment of the population who

The hour began with Theo — fake-out No. 1, he’s not dead! — being tortured by a hunter alongside a pair of wolves from Satomi’s pack. Things looked pretty bleak for the three captives, until Theo discovered that he could break free of his chains by goading the hunter to crank up the electricity, thus melting the metal and enabling him to bust loose.
In true bad-ass fashion, Theo left the hunter tied to the electric fence, »

Alas, despite Tariq’s cascade of increasingly bad decisions as of late, it’s his twin sister, Raina, who pays the ultimate price in Sunday’s episode: While bravely standing up to a dirty cop who’s literally gunning for her brother, she is shot in the chest and bleeds out while a shocked Tariq looks on.

Five Things You Didn’t Know about Stephen Frears

Project Runway Season 16 Premiere: What We Learned
Project Runway Season 16 just premiered, and the first show of the season was vaguely odd. This season features models of all sizes, rather than the typical line up of pencil thin, tall professionals who usually fill the runways. Also new is model mirror time; each model stands alone in front of a mirror and tells the camera what they think about their experience with the designers assigned to them. Here’s a few examples of what happened in mirror time: One model praised her designer for considering her own curves and shapely figure. Another model noted that it was meaningful

The latest gross-out moment came during the episode’s cold open, when Aaron sauntered into the morgue and puked a bunch of spiders onto the yet-unnamed villainous corpse — the one Ryan Kelley refers to as “Pulpy” — and brought it back to life. I think. (Honestly, I’m not going to pretend I know what’s going on here, and neither should you.)
