'Game of Thrones' review: A good show enters its Imperial Phase

Confession: I’ve always been a Game of Thrones skeptic. Not to say a hater — not by a long shot. I like the show just fine. It’s got good actors chewing gorgeous scenery with ripe dialogue. Everyone’s got a funny sidekick or two, and a love interest or three, and at least four cosplay-worthy outfits per season. The show became famous for its daring plot twists — #RedWedding #SeanBeanDiesAgain – and even when it inevitably hits the mid-season place-setting lull, the show moves so quickly through its dozen different casts that it’s impossible to get bored.

Winter is coming? It feels like it never left. Perhaps the chill in the air is lingering for the season 4 premiere of Game of Thrones, airing April 6.

Either way, here are the excellent reasons to continue hibernating over the next seven days: READ FULL STORY

Late Night Highlight: Peter Dinklage has never read the 'Game of Thrones' books


Game of Thrones fans: Don’t challenge Peter Dinklage to a Song of Ice and Fire plot quiz.

Though the actor portrays Tyrion Lannister on HBO’s hit drama, Dinklage made a big confession to David Letterman Wednesday night: He’s never actually read George R. R. Martin’s beloved series. “George is probably going to kill my character now that I’ve confessed that,” Dinklage joked.

Watch our late night highlight clip below:


'Game of Thrones': Kit Harington covers 'GQ' (and talks about naked Jon Snow)

You know nothing about Jon Snow’s butt — but you’re about to learn a lot more, thanks to GQ.

For example: Remember that time last season, when Game on Thrones viewers got a glimpse of Kit Harington’s backside? “When it came down to it I had a broken ankle, so the only time you saw my ass, it wasn’t my ass,” Harington explained to the magazine.

The revelation is just one of many the Game of Thrones star dishes in his GQ cover story. Still on the subject of all the HBO drama’s nudity, Harington said, “It’s only right, if you’re going to make a show where nudity and sex is a large part of it, that you be a part of that.”


Your 'Game of Thrones' Gift Guide


We’re just a few weeks away from the season 4 debut of Game of Thrones, the popular HBO fantasy series/business manual. Which means that now is the perfect time to begin purchasing gifts for Thronesgiving, the new holiday I just invented which is already more of an actual thing than Arbor Day. On Thronesgiving, you exchange gifts with your friends, family, loved ones, and blood-oath enemies. HBO has a released a whole assortment of Thrones tie-in products to mark the gory sudser’s return. But what’s the appropriate gift for the appropriate Thrones obsessive? Forthwith, a round-up: READ FULL STORY

Late Night Highlight: Emilia Clarke reminisces about her awkward 'Game of Thrones' audition on 'Tonight' -- VIDEO

The Mother of Dragons can bust a move! Well, sort of.

While stopping by The Tonight Show to promote season 4 of Game of Thrones on Wednesday, actress Emilia Clarke told Jimmy Fallon that GOT co-creator David Benioff “suggested [she] do a little dance” during her audition for the role of Daenerys Targaryen.

Unfortunately, she decided to show off her Funky Chicken moves. Luckily, she still got the part.


Could the 'Game of Thrones' kids take on 'stupid' Harry Potter in a fight? -- VIDEO

The Stark kids from Game of Thrones have had to battle a lot in Westeros on the hit HBO series. But how would they fare up against some other famous TV and film kids?

Maisie Williams, Sophie Turner and Isaac Hempstead-Wright, who play the three siblings on the show, joined Today’s Orange Room for a game of Versus. In these hypothetical match-ups, the trio had to decide if their characters could beat the kids from The Hunger Games, The Simpsons and everyone’s favorite boy wizard, Harry Potter. Well, everyone, except Turner that is.

“Oh, Potter. Sorry, but they’re so stupid. Come on, Harry finds all the loopholes, but he’s not actually a good wizard,” Turner laughed.

You may be surprised by some of their answers. Let’s just say, good thing Hermione is always there to save the day. Watch the video below: READ FULL STORY

This Week's Cover: 'Game of Thrones' readies its biggest, bloodiest season yet

All hail the king!

Power-crazed Game of Thrones despot Joffrey Baratheon sneeringly rules the cover of this week’s Entertainment Weekly as we go behind the scenes of the biggest, bloodiest season of the HBO fantasy hit yet.

Across 10 pages, we crash the filming of Joffrey’s long-awaited wedding in Croatia for a full week on the set. It’s the first time since the Thrones pilot that so many major characters have been together in one place and quite likely the last — season 4 has an unprecedented number of character deaths. “It’s just more intense than it ever has been,” says showrunner David Benioff. “We always before had breathing room episodes before. There’s just no relaxing this season. If we can pull this off, it will top season 3.”

What makes season 4 so intense? Bigger dragons (who are no longer listening to Daenerys “mom” Targaryen), more action (including the most epic sword-clanging battle sequence in the show’s history), bigger sets (such as a massive throne room atop an 800-foot pyramid) and darker turns (this time, it’s the “nice” characters you have to worry about). “Particularly this season, and absolutely with Ygritte, there are so many characters out for blood,” says co-star Rose Leslie.

Get the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly where we give you a handy season 4 catch-up primer, fill you in on where all your favorite characters are headed in the season premiere (which airs April 6), do a Q&A with co-star Peter Dinklage, get a first look at some cool new props (Jaime’s golden hand!) and fashion from the season, and more.
