All good things come to an end, as the saying goes, and that includes television shows that were good, but never quite great—like Boardwalk Empire (sorry, but with its Sopranos and Scorsese pedigree, we’ve never understood how the show was never able to rise above the level of “yeah, it’s a pretty good show”).  That’s right,...

There's a number of movies that just don't really peak my interest, and this upcoming Entourage movie is one of them. Personally I believe that the show ran out of steam towards the fifth season, but that's definitely just me. Fans will be finally getting their wish as the movie has been officially green-lit.

Game of Thrones, the HBO series based on the fantasy book series by George R.R. Martin, has been a huge hit for HBO, telling the tale of the continent of Westeros, “where summers and winters can last years, and only the lust for power is eternal” (a.k.a., it’s a gargantuan swords-and-sandals epic with lots of graphic violence and sex).  After record setting...

Published by

Peter Dinklage Game of Thrones
The Game of Thrones story is really starting to gather steam, with several chess pieces moving closer and closer to a cataclysmic collision of minds and matter. The tone in Season 2 has been a little starker than in Season 1, and it manages to do that while feature fewer Starks! As always, I am low on patience and high on anticipation for Episode 4 next week.
