This fall will mark fifty years since November 22, 1963 -- a date that continues to haunt American history. When John F. Kennedy was assassinated, it seemed to mark an undeniable shift in the country, away from the positivity and hope that followed War War II, into a more fraught and frightened era with more wars overseas, social and political upheaval and much more. To mark the anniversary, there will undoubtedly be a ton of programming and films to choose from, and this is one of them.

Though he’s busy doing press for the micro-budget Shakespeare adaptation “Much Ado About Nothing,” current King of the World Joss Whedon hasn’t taken his mind off the unenviable task of following up the mega-hit that was “The Avengers.” And while we already know about some of the characters that will appear in the sequel -- Thanos, Quicksilver and The Scarlet Witch -- Whedon has let us know who we shouldn’t expect to see in “The Avengers 2.”

Of course, nothing has been sacred when it comes to "Family Guy" and making jokes. No subject, person, historical event or [insert whatever] has been out of bounds for the creators, so as the four-time Emmy winning show gears up for another campaign, they've put last year's breakout show firmly on their radar.

It’s becoming pretty obvious what the trend of 2013 is, at least in the film world. That trend would be filmmakers sharing their opinions on the current state of cinema and their predictions for what the future of cinema could entail. This time around, it’s George Lucas and Steven Spielberg. They recently visited the USC School of Cinematic Arts to help tout the opening of their new Interactive Media Building. While there, they spoke of the current state of cinema, with Spielberg predicting that a sea of change in the film industry is simply inevitable... we’re sure the film students in the audience were just thrilled to hear that. Sorry kids.

With Sunday's episode of “Game of Thrones” bringing the series' third soul-wrenching season (and our recaps) to a close, a hiatus of emotional recovery and anticipation for the fourth remains next. But even with the recent mass extermination of series regulars, the franchise still holds a wealth of characters to explore, and alongside some narrative concerns, the question of which will make it into upcoming episodes recently inspired the series showrunners and writers to respond.

Well, after last week's horrible trauma, which I'm not sure everyone has gotten over, "Game of Thrones" returns with a final episode of the third season, "Mhysa," that lets us lick our wounds and offers some uplifting moments to temper all that violence and nihilism (don't worry, there's still plenty of violence and nihilism too). And we even get a few small moments of justice and a tiny bit of revenge on the part of one of the Starks. As for tying up loose ends, I didn't have high hopes for this episode's ability to draw all of its many disparate story lines to satisfying close, but, as directed by David Nutter, this episode addresses most of our characters and brings them to a place of certainty, at least, until the next season.
