Game of Thrones
Game of Thrones isn't all blood and gore! This week, HBO released a blooper reel from the show, featuring characters like Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) and Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) enjoying some lighter moments on set. In other news, Sarah Palin debuted her new online news channel, and DMX almost had a heart attack on a roller coaster. Plus...

Question: Let's talk 24: Live Another Day. What are your thoughts on the season so far? I have to say, I'm loving it! The two-hour opener wasn't the best, and I'm not thrilled about the Chloe with the dragon tattoo, but it's been getting progressively better each week, and it's starting to feel like the 24 that I used to love (i.e., up to Season 5.) By the end of the original series, they had lost what made it great: the intriguing peripheral characters, politics and side-stories, and completely focused on indestructible Jack and his band of disposable supporting players. But this season he's found a worthy sidekick in Kate, we have all the drama around Heller and his team, the Russians lurking in the background, and I'm really digging where they're going with the hipster CIA tech. (Could we have a new Chloe on our hands?)

Game of Thrones has already broken many of its rules this season. What's one more?
Fans of HBO's epic fantasy series have been trained to expect a huge, possibly devastating game-changer in the penultimate episode of every season, followed by a more sedate 10th episode finale to deal with the aftermath. This year instead, major deaths and events have been peppered throughout Season 4, leaving its fans unsettled and unsure of what to expect. Alex Graves, who directed Sunday's finale (9/8c, HBO), promises more surprises in a 10th episode like no other.

Trust a Dornishman to get excited by impossible odds.
On Sunday's Game of Thrones (9/8c, HB), Oberyn Martell (Pedro Pascal) will enter into trial by combat against Gregor Clegane, who is nicknamed The Mountain for his ridiculously vast size. The series cast massive Icelandic strongman Hafthor Bjornsson to dwarf his onscreen competitor. "He's nearly a foot taller than me. He's 6-foot-9; I'm 5-foot-11," Pascal tells TVGuide.com. "I think he's nearly three times my weight. He's 420 pounds of muscle. It felt like I was with a giant. And then put him in the armor, and his sword alone was exactly my height. It was incredibly intimidating but also really delightful because I think that the character Oberyn really relishes that kind of challenge."
This week, Epic Rap Battles of History pitted Breaking Bad's Walter White against The Walking Dead's Rick Grimes, and Funny or Die imagined what Donald Sterling's inner monologue may be. In Game of Thrones parody news, Tyrion's speech got an alternate ending, and the entire show got the Law & Order treatment. Oh, and in case you haven't heard, Solange Knowles attacked her brother-in-law Jay-Z in an elevator while Beyonce looked on!

Hello, friends and bannermen. On Sunday Game of Thrones finally got around to putting Tyrion on trial, with heartbreaking results. How did it match up with the books? How did it differ?
