Kimmel Rolls Out Customer Service Hotline to Clear Up ‘Game of Thrones’ Confusion (Video)
On Monday’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” Kimmel rolled a fun video that offered a solution to the problem of keeping all the plot threads from eight seasons of “Game of Thrones” straight: a customer service hotline for confused fans.

Called “Game of Phones” (groan), the clip reveals that HBO built an obscure clause into stars’ contracts requiring them to man the hotline. So it is that some “Game of Thrones” heavy hitters showed up to answer questions.

For instance, Sansa Stark actress Sophie Turner explained that King Joffrey wasn’t actually assassinated, he just died from food poisoning. His chefs didn’t make sure his clams were still alive when they cooked them. “It’s clam 101,” she said.

Review: Philippine Horror Eerie is Paved with Good Intentions

“The road to hell is paved with good intentions.” I am reminded of these lines when thinking of a throughline for the Mikhail Red-directed horror film Eerie.

"A prequel set in the Z Nation universe, Black Summer is a new series introducing all new characters from every walk of life. Jamie King (Hart of Dixie) stars as a mother, torn from her daughter, who embarks upon a harrowing journey,
