‘Westworld’ Season 3 Adds Lena Waithe, Won’t Air Until 2020

HBO is currently basking in the glory of their final season of Game of Thrones, but the day is soon approaching when they no longer have the same stranglehold on the pop culture conversation as they do now. They’ve invested some serious money into Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy‘s sci-fi western series Westworld as an heir apparent, but the audience has dropped significantly from the first to the second season. But after a frustrating second season, the show is making all the right moves to hook me...

George R.R. Martin Talks ‘Game of Thrones’ Ending, Says His Book Conclusion Won’t Be That Different from the Show’s

‘Game of Thrones’ Returns to ‘Winterfell’ With a Busy Hour of Table-setting and Doomsaying

Game of Thrones is back with its eighth and final season…which means that a series known for its unwillingness to take any prisoners no longer has a reason to let the castles stand and keep heads on their shoulders. The season premiere, “Winterfell,” follows the grand series tradition of moving pieces into place before the proper storm begins. And there are many, many pieces, even as the game table itself has shrunk to only two key locations: Winterfell, stronghold of House Stark, and King’s La...

Life Is a Penguin Highway

I saw Penguin Highway in theaters during the New York Int’l Children’s Film Festival. I was sitting next to two women in their late 20s who were discussing where to get artisanal haircuts.
