Why Does Maisie Williams Watch 'Game of Thrones' With Her Drunk Grandmother?

March 26th, 2015 8:23am EDT
'Game Of Thrones' Star Maisie Williams Watches The Show With Her
"Game of Thrones" is perhaps the least family-friendly show on television. Gather the whole family around -- parents, grandparents, young children -- and be revolted as writhing nude sex fiends are hacked apart with a broadsword.

But for Maisie Williams -- who stars in "Game of Thrones" as Arya Stark -- watching the show has to be a family affair.

As she explained to Jimmy Kimmel on "Jimmy Kimmel Live," "We used to watch it with my nan, and my auntie, and my cousins, and my dogs, and the whole family, everyone."

That can get a bit awkward. Especially with Williams' 87-year-old grandma w...

'Justified' Recap: Trust

'Justified' Recap And Review: 'Trust' - As In, You Shouldn't Tru
We're now into the final four episodes of Justified, and so naturally it's time for some bullets and betrayals. This week's installment, "Trust," is all about people who should not have trusted other people, and paying the price for that faith. You certainly didn't expect everyone to stay on the same sides forever, did you?

Katherine is ranting to Duffy about last time's explosion, although she still doesn't think that highly of him. He reminds her that they're still on the same side, except for that they're not, and tells her to find out if Markham is going to move his money out of the va...

'The Fosters' Season 2 Finale: "The End of the Beginning" for Jesus?

March 24th, 2015 10:02pm EDT
The Fosters 2x21-1
Last night, The Fosters season 2 ended. Per usual, the finale had major reveals, resolutions, and conflicts. "The End of the Beginning" managed to give some sort of satisfying conclusion to all the major story-lines from this season.

Callie's adoption conflict got resolved, Jude and Connor's romance progressed, and Mariana's dance group finally performed. However, The Fosters season 2 finale did manage to leave some big cliffhangers. One of these cliffhangers could potentially change the Fosters family forever, in a tragic way.

Jude paints his nails blue and heads to...

April Parker Jones Returns For More 'If Loving You Is Wrong'
Tonight, April Parker Jones returns to her starring role as Natalie on Tyler Perry's original series If Loving You Is Wrong. But she's coming back on a high, having spent her hiatus with a recurring role in the smash hit series How to Get Away with Murder and starring in a new play.

We caught up with April last week to ask her about her two recent projects, and how it feels to finish them and return to portraying the character that she knows best. Here's what she had to say about her productive break.

April portrayed Detective Claire Bryce in How To Get Away With Murder, a character who w...

'Better Call Saul' Review: Another Tremendous Hour Of TV

March 24th, 2015 9:52am EDT
'Better Call Saul' Recap: 'RICO' Is An Incredible Underdog Story
It's only natural to compare "Better Call Saul" with "Breaking Bad." Because... well, duh.

But the more "Better Call Saul" we see, the more it's clear that these shows couldn't be more different, even if there's a 20-page list of similarities between the two.

Take the scene when Saul clamors through a dumpster full of rotting, unspeakable nursing home filth to try and find the shredded documents he needs to take down Sandpiper Crossing.

Were Walter White ever forced to scrounge through several hundred pounds of soiled Depends, he too would end up as soaked in horribleness as Saul did. W...

'Shameless' Review: Top 5 Wild Moments from 'South Side Rules'

March 23rd, 2015 10:54pm EDT
shame9
Remember when you hated Sammi because she was naively enamored with Frank and eating up screen time from other, beloved characters? Well, she finally earned all the vitriol that’s been thrown at her by characters and viewers alike. Last week the ramifications of Carl’s arrest seemed light, as if the entire family were unaffected by this inevitability. But the real consequence of Carl’s jail time is that they pissed off the wrong Gallagher. Sammi comes off as more villainous than any other character on Shameless, except for Frank, whose heinous actions are usually due to selfishness instead ...

'The Good Wife' Recap and Review: 'Red Meat' - Who Won The Election?

'The Good Wife' Recap and Review: 'Red Meat' - Who Won The Elect
Election day is finally here on The Good Wife, putting an end to the storyline that's been the focus of most of the sixth season. "Red Meat" wraps up Alicia's campaign in precisely the way you could've predicted it would end a while ago, but the lack of surprise is compensated for with some humor in unexpected places that makes the road more traveled still entertaining.

Alicia and Jonathan are pretending that they didn't just make out as Alicia meets up with Peter, who naturally is not thrilled that she took aim at him in her latest speech. She retorts that once the day is over, they can g...

'Walking Dead' Recap: A Genuine Shocker

'The Walking Dead' Review: Five Badass Moments From 'Try'
The Walking Dead can feel predictable at times. There are inevitable moments that can make everything else feel like filler. We knew Rick and Shane would one day have an epic showdown, so everything in between was buildup. When Rick promised to kill Gareth with that axe, the audience only had to count the minutes until it actually happened exactly as expected. As soon as Pete was introduced, sitting in a shadowy silhouette on the porch, it was obvious to every regular TWD viewer that Rick would eventually kill him and everything else is just bidding time.

So, when the show manages to pull ...

‘Grey’s Anatomy’: Has Derek's Cheating History Repeated Itself

March 20th, 2015 9:51am EDT
‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Recap: Derek Returns A Cheater
If you’re looking for a definite confirmation that Derek has a D.C. side chick—Meredith already paints a descriptive snapshot of her—we might just get it.

But not in “Don’t Dream It’s Over” because as much as you can see a dress is blue and black, some people will view it as brown and white. In other words, things are never what they seem to be, even when it looks like they are. Including a mystery woman playing secretary on Derek’s phone. Yet, to Meredith it’s abundantly clear: he’s cheating. Her theory: “when you hear hoofbeats, think horses, not zebras. It means that the most obvious an...
