The unstoppable "Girls" may have just closed out its second season with its divisive finale, but it looks like one of the major storyline developments is getting an unexpected shakeup. Not all is sunny on Lena Dunham's set of the now-shooting third season, and one major character has abruptly exited the show.

With each successive season, “Mad Men” and its creator Matthew Weiner have grown more secretive in their slowly tightening grip on Don Draper (Jon Hamm) and his personal and professional affairs. So far, nothing has changed with season six a mere few days before its premiere, but a quick featurette and some photos have dropped to get excitement rolling all over again.

Well, geez that didn't take long. It's already safe to say that HBO's "Game Of Thrones" is already one of the crown jewels of their slate, and with viewers turning on the TV Sunday night in droves, it's not a shock that they are eager to keep a flag planted in Westeros.

After directing his sophomore feature, the 2005 critically-acclaimed globe-trotting thriller “Syriana,” “Traffic” writer Stephen Gaghan has had a rough go of getting a new project started. And while it seems that he’s finally gearing up to shoot his follow-up, the Oscar-winning screenwriter is also planning a stop on the small screen.

With "Game Of Thrones" kicking off last night and "Mad Men" just around the corner, there is plenty of great TV to watch at the moment, but there is a drawback of having to wait week-by-week for each new episode. If you're looking for something to binge on, help is on the way.

It's almost hard to believe that the return of “Arrested Development,” while only a month away from its May Netflix premiere, is really happening -- perhaps partly because the event's been so anticipated, and partly because so little has been revealed on its contents. Drips of info have been leaked here and there though, and with a round of cast panels and interviews over the weekend, that info has just increased.

Review & Recap: ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 3 Slowly Rises From The Ashes of ‘Battle Of Blackwater’ In Episode 1, 'Valar Dohaeris'

Sometimes you have to be a little nerdy to fully understand HBO’s “Game of Thrones.” Or at least understand it more deeply than the average viewer. If Season 2 ended with the well-titled episode “Valar Morghulis" meaning, “all men must die,” in Season 3 we begin with the less ominous and more appropriate "Valar Dohaeris" -- “all men must serve.” As fans of Westeros should know, Season 3 falls roughly within the first half of “A Storm of Swords,” the third of the “A Song of Ice and Fire” novels by George R. R. Martin.

So Steven Soderbergh's final film -- the man still has plenty of non-movie stuff he's working on -- arrives in May on HBO, but don't let television tag fool you. "Behind The Candelabra" is still widely tipped to be included somewhere in the Cannes Film Festival lineup, and while the summer movie season has no shortage of exciting offerings, if the idea of Michael Douglas and Matt Damon playing lovers in a biopic of Liberace isn't enough to put this on the top of your must-see list, we don't know what to tell you. But perhaps this will change your mind.

Steven Soderbergh Finally Tackling Long-Gestating Adaptation Of 'Sot-Weed Factor' For 12-Hour TV Series

While Steven Soderbergh may be done with narrative filmmaking for the moment, his "retirement" will perhaps find him busier than ever, but not on projects that will be screened at a multiplex near you. He's got his hands in stage musicals for "Magic Mike" and "Cleopatra," he's directing a play this fall, he'll be focusing on painting and writing books, and he's got some kind of web thing called Extension 765 he's launching soon too. But it seems he's also circling back to a project that had been kicking around a while, and might be familiar to devoted Soderbergh heads.
