Heatstroke
The sun bears down on the characters in “Heatstroke," a new suspense thriller set in the African desert. At first it feels like an inspired location, a way to provide color to a familiar hide-and-seek chase actioner.

It's the sun who is going to reveal a hiding space, the sun who is going to keep water out of reach. It's the sun that will provide constant reminder of regret for the mistakes characters make.

Game of Thrones' Season 4 - The Mountain and the Viper'
We're back after a week off, and it's time to dive back into the wacky world of Westeros. There's another easter egg in the opening credits this week — Moat Cailin makes an appearance, the geography of the show growing with each episode. "The Mountain and the Viper," directed by Alex Graves (you might remember him from Joffrey's Purple Wedding), has promised us the trial by combat, the showdown and revenge we've been waiting for this whole season, and we're going to get it… right after all of these hideously boring monologues. The episode is a series of rather long, wordy, staid scenes bookended with bursts of bloody violence. A few of the monologues could stand to have been heavily edited, and time was checked during the show, a truly rare occurrence.
