All men, women, and dragons must die: The final Game Of Thrones dead-pool odds All men, women, and dragons must die: The final Game Of Thrones dead-pool odds

It all comes down to this: On Sunday, May 20, Game Of Thrones will all be over, but for the cries of fans who feel betrayed by the abrupt turns of season eight and the posts on websites seeking to squeeze just a little blood from the Dragonstone (hello). But some things must come to a definitive end, like the lives of…

The Last War brings a bonanza of Game Of Thrones dead pool odds The Last War brings a bonanza of Game Of Thrones dead pool odds

The final season of Game Of Thrones promised two major confrontations: Between the living and the dead, and between whatever was left of the living and Cersei’s forces down in King’s Landing. Despite the depletion of their ranks (though not in terms of the major characters we were expecting), those who’ve sworn…

Every I Think You Should Leave sketch, ranked Every I Think You Should Leave sketch, ranked

Tim Robinson and Zach Kanin’s Netflix sketch series I Think You Should Leave has proven to be one of 2019’s sleeper TV hits, its quarter-hour bursts of feet-in-mouths and social situations gone surreally awry sneakily monopolizing the cultural conversation, like a wily oddball whose good car ideas gradually win them…

Game Of Thrones sets the table for its final conflict, but forgets to clear the coffee cup

Look, we’ve all been there: You’ve just staged a feature-length battle sequence, purportedly the longest ever put on screen, and you’re a little wiped out. You want to take a breather, but there’s just no time: There’s another war on the horizon, and you’re running out of real estate. So maybe you fast track the…

Brockmire serves up a heaping helping of Panda Express meltdown in this exclusive sneak peek

Nobody knows benders, being on the losing end of adultery, and calling a baseball game like Jim Brockmire. And in the next episode of the IFC comedy that bears his name, he’s putting that expertise toward helping out new broadcast booth partner Gabby Taylor (Tawny Newsome), who’s been hit with the devastating…

The Game Of Thrones dead pool is caught between The Great War and The Last War The Game Of Thrones dead pool is caught between The Great War and The Last War

As the dust and ashes of “The Long Night” settle, as the forces at Winterfell assess their victory and its casualties and prepare for the journey south, your Game Of Thrones dead pool anticipates another break in the violence this week. Chalk it up to the demands of the narrative, or attribute it, as Eckstein the…

Our Game Of Thrones dead pool braces for bloodbath at Winterfell Our Game Of Thrones dead pool braces for bloodbath at Winterfell

Let’s face it: It hasn’t been much fun wagering on who will live and who will die during this first part of Game Of Thrones’ final season, even if it has been fun watching the show rediscover its flair for politicking, interpersonal sniping, and big character beats that don’t involve the severing of body parts. But…

Is anyone going to die on Game Of Thrones this week? Is anyone going to die on Game Of Thrones this week?

The advancing army of the dead notwithstanding, there’s never been a safer time to live in Westeros—provided you’re not the little lord of Last Hearth, a moonlighting star of a cable comedy, or a dragon’s lunch. And that’s a trend that’s likely to continue for at least one more week, according to our trusted expert in…

Griffin Newman is the ideal subject for a questionnaire-style, opinion-driven interview: Regular listeners to the movie podcast Blank Check (co-hosted by former A.V. Club contributor David Sims) know that Newman doesn’t shy away from a take or a bit, nor is he wary of steering a conversation deep into unexpected and…

Who will sit on the Iron Throne of the Game Of Thrones dead pool? Who will sit on the Iron Throne of the Game Of Thrones dead pool?

This Sunday, April 14, for the very last time, a season of Game Of Thrones will begin. And then, five Sundays later, for the very last time, a season of Game Of Thrones will end. But finality’s always been baked into Game Of Thrones’ king-sized pie of epic fantasy, political intrigue, and things you can’t do, say, or…

Fosse/Verdon knows the choreography, but dances it clumsily Fosse/Verdon knows the choreography, but dances it clumsily

The box-office receipts and award nominations for Bohemian Rhapsody say otherwise, but there are few cinematic genres in need of a complete overhaul as much as the celebrity biopic, whose rhythms and tics were long ago absorbed by pop culture at large and reconstituted as parody. 12 years after Walk Hard, it’s almost…
