Weekend TV: Red Tent, One Child, Librarians

At times, you might mistake Lifetime's enjoyably earnest Biblical epic The Red Tent (Sunday-Monday, 9/8c) for an Old Testament version of Call the Midwife. Adapted from Anita Diamant's novel, this saga of revisionist her-story focuses on willful Dinah (The White Queen's Rebecca Ferguson), the only daughter of Jacob (Game of Thrones' Iain Glen) — he of the many sons, including the sartorially infamous Joseph. read more

Game of Thrones Power Shift: Jaime Overplays His Hand

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau

Give Jaime Lannister a hand because he royally messed up.

On Sunday's Game of Thrones, the Kingslayer got a firsthand lesson that his father's money and influence will only take him so far. In fact, Jaime's fortunes changed hands because of his nasty habit of paternal name-dropping. Oh, are our puns getting out of hand? Who else lost the upper hand? Who advanced? TVGuide.com breaks down the power shifts in "Walk of Punishment": read more

Downton Abbey Finale Preview: Love Among the Ruins

Downton Abbey

"It's good to remind people, love is love," says Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes. And more than 15 million viewers in the U.S. and U.K. are having a love affair with the palace-size hit, which has reinvigorated period drama and earned raves around the world (100 countries have acquired rights to air the show). Far from a sophomore slump, Season 2 of the sumptuous series about life among the British gentry and their servants during World War I has broadened the story's scope to take in the violence of the battlefields and the impact of the conflict on the residents both upstairs and down.

Weekend Reviews: Downton Abbey, House of Lies, AbFab and More!

Downton Abbey

Who says you can't go home again? Not that any of us ever lived in a place as grand and as teeming with character — highborn and low, selfless and treacherous — as Downton Abbey. read more

Downton Abbey 2 Spoilers: Mary and Matthew's Relationship, a New Housemaid and the Great War

Dan Stevens and Michelle Dockery

When Downton Abbey returns for its second season on Jan. 8, 2012 on PBS, the action will pick up two years after that fated garden party in which the Earl of Grantham (Hugh Bonneville) announced that England was at war with Germany.

During Sunday's preview of the hit British series, executive producer Gareth Neame confirmed that the action in the seven-episode second season will take place over two years, just like the first season. "The new series is a similar sort of span," he says. "We start in 1916. The war will come to a conclusion within this series, and the final episodes is the time after the war."

Game of Thrones' Emilia Clarke on Daenerys, Drogo and Dothraki Jeggings

Emilia Clarke, Iain Glen

Emilia Clarke might play a warrior princess with platinum blonde hair on Game of Thrones, but fans who approach her often want to talk about her on-screen husband instead.

"Normally the comments are not about me at all, but, 'My goodness, your husband is big!'" she tells TVGuide.com. We can't blame them. As the delicately beautiful Daenerys Targaryen, Clarke is a sharp contrast to Jason Momoa, the 6-foot-5 actor who plays the eyeliner-wearing, bare-chested Dothraki warlord, Khal Drogo.

Houses Collide: A Weekly Game of Thrones Discussion — Feminism, Executions and Other Westeros

Sean Bean, Miltos Yeromelou, Maisie Williams

Last week, we delved into Game of Thrones' heavy-handed foreshadowing of those darn dragon's eggs. This week, we discuss some of the standout characters (Daenerys! Arya!) from Episode 3  who've kept us intrigued with their decidedly non-medieval ways.

TVGuide.com's Hanh Nguyen is an avid scripted-TV watcher, a horror-avoider and someone who's read George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire book series, on which HBO's Game of Thrones is based. Her co-worker, Rich Juzwiak, rarely watches scripted TV, is a gorehound and became alerted to Martin's existence just recently, as he started researching this new swords-and-sandals (well, boots) series. He knows nothing of these sorcerers (if that is indeed what they are), while Hanh is something of an expert (read: fantasy/sci fi nerd). Each week, he'll try to make sense of this crazy new show by enlisting Hanh's expertise. It may turn out to be a test of tolerance: in this case, the Games begin after the TV is off.
