My Secret Shame: I Still Don’t Know Everyone’s Names on Game of Thrones

It was a cute joke at the beginning. “I watch Game of Thrones, but there are so many characters, I can’t keep them all straight.” But then the show got a second season, a third season, and became one of the biggest, most popular TV shows in history.

Maisie Williams Shared a Bloody Tribute to Her Time on Game of Thrones

Westworld Approaches Its Endgame With Death, Tragedy, and a Few Major Revelations

If you watch Westworld for the shocks, last night’s instalment couldn’t have disappointed you. And, while it didn’t reach the heights of last week’s phenomenal episode, which told an epic love story that had been lying in the margins of the main narrative, “Vanishing Point” told a story of self-obsession and lovelessness instead.

Westworld’s Shōgun World Was Everything I Expected It to Be, But Not Much Else

It’s the episode we’ve all been waiting for since the season one finale, but it turns out Shōgun World faces a unique problem that I wasn’t expecting, and it wasn’t the ninjas, tyrannical lords, or even “cop-killer” samurai that fill the park.
