Game Of Thrones, Season 4 finale, The Children
Have you had your morning coffee? Good, cos after "Game of Thrones" last night, you probably needed it. It's been an eventful season on the show, what with the Purple Wedding, the fight between the Mountain and the Viper and its grisly conclusion, and the battle for the Wall, but last night's finale, "The Children," topped them all with a slew of major characters biting the dust, and more major revelations besides, as you'll know from our recap (and if you haven't read that or seen the episode, be warned that there are major spoilers below).

Game Of Thrones, Season 4 finale, The Children, lead image
Here we are, time to bid farewell to another season of "Game of Thrones," just as soon as we get through this extra long (66 minute) episode — with slim chances that all of our characters are going to make it out intact. If anyone checked out the news about the Emmy submissions last week, you might have noted that this week's finale "The Children" was the only episode that HBO submitted for best writing, so we were expecting a lot from this one (though last week's episode "The Watchers on the Wall" would have made a fine submission too, as though it was rife with action and bloodshed, had some damn fine speeches and story moments. Also giants). But this finale definitely lived up to the hype, with some incredible twists, turns and monologuing along the way as well.

THR Actress Roundtable
Well, it’s getting near that time for the Emmys, arguably the Oscars of TV, and as TV keeps gaining ground on movies—see movie star Tom Hardy’s recent comments on the medium—the Emmys are becoming more and more legitimate (well, except when it comes to the nominees and winners, but still...). And in fact, whether you disagree on the quality of smart TV over modern cinema, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to argue that the acting quality is any lesser.

If you, like so many of us, are a big fan of "True Detective" (which hit DVD and Blu-ray this week), you'd better savor what you have and what's still to come, because it appears that the show isn't going to be one of those that goes on for years and years. Some were taken by surprise (even though it had always been announced as such) when they realized that the series was an anthology show, switching up characters, cast and setting for each season and telling an entirely new self-contained story. But disappointment at not getting to spend more time with Rust and Marty was countered by the sense of possibility: it's a show that could theoretically run forever.

Traditionally, TV slows down in the summer months, but that was in the days before pay-cable came to prominence. "Game Of Thrones" et al might be winding down for the season, but HBO will debut "The Leftovers" and the final season of "True Blood" in just a few weeks, while Showtime still has some "Penny Dreadful" to unspool. And while FX is still technically a basic cable station, they have as impressive a line-up as anyone: right now, with "Fargo" and 'Louie," they have two of the best shows on TV.

We're about to hit an era of non-stop "Star Wars"—next year will bring J.J. Abrams' "Episode VII," with Gareth Edwards' spin-off a year later, and "Episode VIII" and "Episode IX" following, with the Josh Trank stand-alone picture coming down somewhere in between. But the new phase of "Star Wars" could have looked very different back in the days before Disney snapped up the rights to George Lucas' universe.

Game Of Thrones
It feels like only yesterday that since "Game Of Thrones" began its fourth season, and [SPOILER REDACTED], and then [OTHER SPOILER REDACTED] and oh my god, when [REALLY MASSIVE SPOILER REDACTED]. But we're already upon the season finale, certainly a testament to the power of the story, but it's hard not to feel like we were only just getting going when it all comes to an end.

Twin Peaks
He might not be showing any signs of returning to filmmaking, preferring to focus on releasing music and tutoring Louie in how to host a late-night show, but that doesn't mean David Lynch has given up entirely. The director's been intimately involved with the new Blu-ray set for his seminal and hugely influential TV show "Twin Peaks," which hits at the end of July, and the first fruits of that are starting to appear online.

True Detective
Time, as we all know by now, is a flat circle. And so, nearly three months on from the conclusion of "True Detective," we're starting to loop back around. Casting rumors are already gearing up for the second season of Nic Pizzolatto and HBO's wildly acclaimed crime show, and we should be hearing much more about it in the weeks to come, especially with the series likely to be a behemoth in the upcoming Emmy nominations.

Vincent D'onofrio, Daredevil, Kingpin
Vincent D'Onofrio has a very... distinct on-screen persona. Basically, he excels at playing eccentric, emotionally detached characters, who are perhaps more internally complex than outwardly flashy. So while he wouldn't initially seem like a no-brainer choice to play a Marvel baddie, there is something inspired about the choice.
