From the looks of this workout, there will be plenty of lunges in your future — and thankfully, you didn’t start during last week’s episode or else Jaime and Cersei would have had you lunging double-time.

HBO Go ads explain why you don't want to watch HBO with your parents -- VIDEO

Well played, HBO.

HBO has released a series of ads for its streaming service, and the whole set of spots attempt to drive home one message: For a lot of HBO programming, it’s really nice not to have to watch it with your parents. From the sex scenes on True Blood, to the sex scenes on Game of Thrones, to the sex scenes… well, basically, HBO has a lot of steamy programming. And if you want to continue to pretend that your parents aren’t also watching these shows, that’s your right. HBO is looking out for you.

Each of the seven ads — featuring different HBO shows — end the same way after a TMI encounter:  “Might be a good time for HBO Go,” voiceover suggests. “HBO Go. The best of HBO on all your favorite devices. Far, far away from your parents.”

Few shows on television cover greater distance than Game of Thrones, which currently spreads its action to the farthest reaches of two different fantasy continents. Of course, Thrones has impressive source material: George R. R. Martin has spent the last couple of decades meticulously exploring the various cities, towns, villages, and various geographical phenomena throughout his invented world. And now, you can explore that world — without fear of spoilers! READ FULL STORY

The 'Game of Thrones' TV Book Club: Let's talk about that Jaime/Cersei scene

Welcome back to the Game of Thrones TV Book Club, a discussion space for Thrones viewers who have also read the five books (so far) of George R. R. Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire series.

'Game of Thrones': Jack Gleeson's picture-perfect reaction to the Purple Wedding -- PHOTO

In last week’s episode of Game of Thrones, King Joffrey Baratheon finally ended his reign of terror by ingesting poisoned wine during his royal wedding.

While most fans of the show couldn’t wait for the day Joffrey met his end, the horrific manner in which he died — by violently choking to death — was so disturbing, many viewers were almost conflicted about the young King’s passing…almost. The one person who didn’t find it all that disturbing was the actor who played Joffrey, Jack Gleeson, as illustrated by a photo on his Instagram. The image shows Gleeson rolling his eyes, pointing to Joffrey’s white, bloody-nosed corpse on the screen, with a smirk.

Perhaps he is mocking his character’s death or just thrilled to be retiring from acting now that his story arc is over. Check out the photo below: READ FULL STORY

The 'Game of Thrones' TV Book Club: 'Song of Ice and Fire' readers talk Purple Wedding and more

Thought we were done with Game of Thrones articles for a few days, given yesterday’s barrage? Think again! Today EW introduces the Game of Thrones TV Book Club — a discussion space for Thrones viewers who have also read the five books (so far) of George R. R. Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire series.

This week, Darren Franich and Hillary Busis talk 77-course meals, the truth about Jon Snow’s parentage — and what Game of Thrones might do better than ASOIAF. (You know there’ll be spoilers for the books and the show, right?)

DARREN: It’s been about eight years since I first read Storm of Swords, and in rereading the chapters about the Purple Wedding, it struck me that there was one incredibly important aspect that the TV show left out: The 77 courses! Mushroom and snail soup, peacocks stuffed with dates, fish tarts fresh from the ovens: Eat your heart out, Top Chef! Was there anything that you missed from the Literary Purple Wedding, Hillary? Or, conversely, was there any new addition that particularly jumped out at you?

'Game of Thrones': The 9 most satisfying deaths

The Red God of Death is no stranger to Westeros. Or Essos, for that matter.

When we talk about the Game of Thrones characters who have shuffled off (or, more accurately, been shoved off) this mortal coil, we tend to focus on the show’s most shocking demises — which often strike GoT‘s most noble, likable characters. (Think of the Red Wedding, or Ned’s brutal decapitation, or even the end of Qhorin Halfhand, which admittedly has more oomph in A Clash of Kings than it did on the show.) But those gut-punching sequences are only one piece of the puzzle. As anyone who’s watched “The Lion and the Rose” can attest, Thrones also excels in meting out justice to despicable folks in spectacular ways.

So on the occasion of The Big Thing That Happened Sunday, let’s take a look back at the Thrones deaths most likely to have viewers pumping their fists — instead of clutching their faces in sorrow. READ FULL STORY
