Winter Is Coming

I finally finished watching all four seasons of Game of Thrones last night and I'm hooked. Can't wait for Season 5 to start on April 12th!!!

Red Rover

I started watching Game of Thrones for the first time this week, binge watching since Tuesday, and just finished watching the "Red Wedding" episode.

I need a drink and the rare ability, for me, not to get too attached to anyone on this show.

Lady Downer of Debbington

Sadly, and as speculated, it seems that the next season of Downton Abbey will be the last...

NBCUniversal-owned Carnival Films, the producer of Downton Abbey, today announced that Season 6 will be the final season of the worldwide hit TV drama.

“With this show we always try to get our timing right. Our feeling is that it’s good to quit while you’re ahead. We feel the show is in really strong shape…The show is so popular globally but the danger with this sort of thing is to let it go on forever. It’s very addictive to want to do that.” 

Neame seemed to dodge queries about a Downton Abbey spinoff, but said both he and Fellowes like the idea of a Downton movie, as has been speculated, but maintained nothing had been done on that front.

I have enjoyed this show from the beginning and would love to see an additional movie, once the series ends.

However, I must agree with the Dowager Countess above...I do not approve of this decision.

Now, if you'll excuse me...I think I need to go upstairs and change my hat.

Very exciting news...we're getting some new X-Files episodes very soon...

Mulder and Scully are back! Thirteen years after The X-Files ended its nine-season run on Fox and months after talks about a new TV installment started, the sci-fi hit is returning as a six-episode event series from series creator/executive producer Chris Carter, with stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson set to reprise their roles as FBI Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully.

Can't. Wait!

This short concept film, Leviathan, is now being turned into a movie...

 If the visuals and tone are as good as this teaser, then I'm definitely in!

Really Angry Birds

This first trailer for Pixels was released today...

This looks like it could be really fun...or really stupid.

Let's hope for the first one.

If you loved 30 Rock and/or The Office and have a way to access Netflix, then definitely watch Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt!!

It's hilarious!

Ellie Kemper is really funny and, of course, there are few actresses as good at playing ridiculous characters you love to hate as the always-entertaining Jane Krakowski.

It's definitely must-see TV!

Yes...that is Lily James from Downton Abbey and Richard Madden from Game of Thrones.

Yes...that is crazy-but-fun-to-watch Helena Bonham Carter.

Yes...that is Cate Blanchett and Sophie McShera (on the left) who plays Daisy on Downton Abbey.

And YES...I am definitely going to see this movie.

Don't judge.

Madonna on Stern

 photo a9f6c502-6b38-4bae-86c9-bd91c8a61ae0_zpsxp0lp6vq.jpg

Madonna was recently interviewed by Howard Stern for the first time in her career and it's actually one of the more honest and revealing interviews she's given to anyone.

She discusses just about everything that has happened in her career, including the real story behind her fall at the Brit Awards a couple of weeks ago.

Candy Man

Someone got very creative with their love for Mike and Ike candy and Channing Tatum.

Maybe the brand should change the name to Magic Mike and Ike.

Just a thought...

Supergirl: First Look

 photo f84fa8d5-233b-4e8b-82a1-7df6e18e475a_zps7ayxr1r7.jpg

Warner Bros. just released the first photo of Melissa Benoist in costume for the Supergirl pilot that is currently in production (and also stars Calista Flockhart, Helen Slater, and Dean Cain).

The costume is not too bad and is looking similar in color-tone to the one that Henry Cavill wears in the Superman movies.

I'm just trying to remain hopeful that the meek gal from Glee can pull off being a superhero.

At least she won't be bursting out into song each episode (or at least I hope not).

Spock Online Memorial

 photo 0f5c04fb-be17-4790-9333-290308263a77_zpsxtazxzwh.png

In honor of Leonard Nimoy's passing last week, the popular Star Trek Online multi-player game has added a couple of memorial statues into its environments so that fans can come by and pay their respects while playing.

Based on where our community chose to congregate and pay their respects, we will be replacing the central structure on the fountain on Vulcan with a stone statue of Spock with the inscription “Live Long and Prosper." We will be adding the same statue to New Romulus with the inscription “The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few”, as building toward Romulan and Vulcan reunification was one of Spock’s great life works. The Romulan Republic would not exist without his teachings.

One on Vulcan...

And one on New Romulus...

They are also placing memorial plaques around for the other Star Trek family members who have passed.

Nimoy also provided voice work for the game not just as Spock, but as a narrator as well, providing a small description of a new region of space whenever a player entered it for the first time. Here is a short video released when the game came out in 2010.

I think it's a pretty cool way for fans to interact with the passing of a fictional character within the "reality" of the world in which that character lived.

I may just have to start participating in this free online game/world.

It looks and sounds....fascinating.

Who would have thought that Madonna falling on stage a couple weeks ago at the Brit Awards could end up helping to create something so visually entertaining?

Can't. Stop. Watching. It.
