Dragons and Fur Coats Abound in Final Season of 'Game of Thrones'

I know people are pretty psyched, but I’m mostly happy that this is finally the end. I’m ready for this show to be over. All I can say about this new trailer is that it definitely looks like Game of Thrones. Lots of dragons, readying for battle, probably a lot more talking than they’re showing here. Each of the last six episodes will be at least 70 minutes or longer, so prepare yourself for that.

Luke Perry 1966-2019

This is so sad. After suffering a massive stroke last week, former 90210 star Luke Perry has died at the age of 52. One of the biggest teen heartthrobs of the 1990’s, he was most known for playing Dylan McKay, the brooding bad boy of Beverly Hills 90210 and the most iconic character of the landmark teen drama. During the show’s ten year run from 1990-2000, he also starred in 1992’s cult hit Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and later appeared in the HBO prison drama Oz, where he had a significant run from 2001-02. Most recently he’d starred on the CW’s Riverdale since 2017 as Archie Andrews’ dad Fred, symbolically passing the torch from his own teen idol days to the new generation. Knowing he’d always be associated with his character from 90210, he was quoted as saying “I'm going to be linked with him until I die, but that's actually just fine. I created Dylan McKay. He's mine." 

'Arrested Development' is Back on March 15

The first half of Season 5 was pretty underwhelming, and after all the bad publicity that happened on the disastrous press tour with the actors, and the Jeffrey Tambor thing, and Portia de Rossi only showing up on green screen, I’m kinda hoping this will be the end of the show, for good this time. I’ll still watch this last part, but I hope it’s a lot better than the first.

'Barry' Season 2 Premieres March 31st

Yay! Barry is back for the second season on Sunday, March 31st, after Veep. With the murder of Janice looming over everything, it’ll be harder for Barry to keep the secret, but everything’s going to probably have to come to a head a lot sooner on this show, than say, Breaking Bad. Bill Hader said at one point he thinks three seasons was the max it could go, and that’s probably smart. I hope they stick to that, but I can’t wait til next month.
