Although it’s well known that Steven Spielberg worked in TV before taking on the big screen, very few people have actually seen any of the work he did before TV movie “Duel.” Thankfully, a kind soul has posted the last TV episode Spielberg directed before breaking out of the small screen ghetto with the 1971 automotive thriller.

5 Major Differences From HBO’s ‘Game Of Thrones
Well, the brilliant “Game Of Thrones” is obviously over for another season, and we enter the long, tortuous wait for its return next year. Unfortunately for many fans, when it does return they probably won’t see a highly anticipated character (or more accurately, the resurrected version of a deceased one) make her debut. While speaking with Entertainment Weekly, actress Michelle Fairley revealed that we’re unlikely to see the character Lady Stoneheart make the transition from page to screen. Lady Who? What? Where? We’ll explain.

Sam Raimi The Outpost
It have been over a year since Sam Raimi delivered "Oz The Great And Powerful," and while the film took in just under $500 million worldwide, it wasn't all that good and it doesn't seem like Disney is in any rush to return to that world. As for Raimi, he's in no real rush to return to features it seems, busy executive producing no shortage projects minus a detour to TV to helm a couple of episodes of "Rake." But he does have a possible new movie cooking.

The Killing
“The Killing” is a curious show with almost nine lives. A major hit out of the gate for AMC that looked like it could replicate some of the success of “Breaking Bad” or other flagship shows on the network. Like we wrote at the beginning of season 2, “the pilot episode of the show -- an eerie mix of David Fincher “Se7en” rain/gloom aesthetics and the “Twin Peaks”-like ominousness found in the Pacific Northwest -- received near universal acclaim from critics.” But the show quickly went south, dragged everything out and went a little nuts with red herrings that lead into cul de sac after cul del sac. Ratings dropped and by the end of season two the show was canceled. AMC then unkilled it, brought it back for season 3 and then canceled it again.

True Detective
While "True Detective" took viewers deep into the heart of the scary parts of Louisiana, perhaps we were all watching so intensely that we missed the episode where Marty and Rust went to Paris. But that's why DVDs are so great, because you can catch up on the parts you missed....

Project Greenlight
First airing in the early 2000s, "Project Greenlight" ran three seasons (the first two on HBO, the third on Bravo) and turned the struggle to make it in Hollywood into a reality series style event. But a bit classier than the stuff you see now. And the results were interesting, with the show—that follows a first time filmmaker through the steps of making their debut feature—bringing the Shia LaBeouf starring "The Battle Of Shaker Heights" and the horror "Feast" (which spawned two sequels) to the masses. And now, nearly a decade after it ended, producers Ben Affleck and Matt Damon are bringing it back.

High-Rise, Moss, Luke Evans
A terrific cast is forming around U.K. filmmaker Ben Wheatley's net film, “High-Rise." The movie already stars Tom Hiddleston, Sienna Miller, Jeremy Irons and James Purefoy (HBO’s “Rome”). That’s good enough as it is, but announced last night, joining the cast are “Mad Men” and “Top Of The Lake” star Elisabeth Moss and Luke Evans of “The Hobbit” and the upcoming “Dracula Untold.”

Twin Peaks
Listen, we get it, there is already enough new stuff on TV to deal with, that the thought of catching up with something you missed (or watched already) the first time around seems a bit daunting. But we're pretty sure you'll want to square away a rainy weekend this summer and get to know "Twin Peaks" all over again.

The Best TV Shows Of The 2013/2014 Season
Bad news if you’re a member of the Television Academy: balloting for this year’s Emmys closed on June 20th, with the nominees to be announced a few weeks from now, on July 10th. That officially brings to an end the 2013/2014 TV season, and if anyone was worried that the run of quality TV was starting to come to an end as some of the most famous dramas and comedies of recent years wrapped up their runs, they were sorely mistaken: the medium is in as remarkably healthy a state as ever.

Community
It seemed almost too good to be true. After being on the brink with NBC since it pretty much began, the network finally delivered the blow to the cult loved "Community," cancelling the show earlier this year, denying fans the six-seasons-and-a-movie prophecy. But then salvation seemed to be around the corner when streaming site Hulu toyed with the idea of re-upping the show for a sixth season, but alas, it seems Dan Harmon's creation is really and truly on its last legs barring some kind of miracle.
