Game of Thrones
HBO's Game of Thrones won't debut until sometime next year, so you'll just have to make do with the cable channel's teases.
Before Sunday's True Blood finale, HBO offered another peek at its upcoming lavish adaptation of George R.R. Martin's fantasy novel series. The clip, which focuses on a raven and features a few washed-out glimpses of the series main characters, ends with the line, "Winter is coming."
HBO also launched a making-of website, which offers featurettes about the production of the series and features even better clips of the show.
Adapted for HBO by David Benioff and Dan Weiss, Game of Thrones stars Sean Bean, Alfre Allen and Mark Addy and chronicles the violent struggles among noble families for control of the Iron Throne of Westero...

"From the moment I heard V was coming back, it was something I was hoping to be part of, but they tested a lot of people for this role," confides Jane from the Vancouver set. "A lot of years have passed, so it feels good to win something." While this is an entirely different take on Diana...

Question: I'm starting to think Elisabeth Moss is going to have a major problem to deal with next summer: deciding which Mad Men episode to submit for Emmy consideration! Peggy has always been one of Mad Men's most complex and intriguing characters, but this season it just feels like Moss and the writers providing her material have been stepping it up more and more in each episode. I can't decide which Peggy moment has been my favorite so far this season: her dabblings in '60s counterculture, her moving reaction to the news of Trudy Campbell's pregnancy, her clever takedown of the horrid new art director, or any of her scenes with Don in the heartbreaking "The Suitcase" episode. What really is blowing my mind is that we're only about halfway through this season of Mad Men. If it's this good already, I can't even imagine how great the climactic episodes are going to be! I just wanted to check in and see if you have been enjoying Peggy lately as much as I have been...
