George R.R. Martin Breaks Silence On Game Of Thrones Spinoffs — Says Upcoming Series WON'T Feature Current Characters!

Filed under: TV NewsWolfGame Of Thrones

no title

More Westeros stories are coming, Game of Thrones fans.

Though some are hoping for their favorite characters to return for the forthcoming spinoffs, George R.R. Martin is reminding us not to expect anything along the lines of Starks In Charge or Tyrion: God of Tits and Wine.

The series mastermind broke his silence about the GoT prequels in development at HBO and dropped a Blackwater-sized firebomb of news: none of the spinoffs will be about current characters — which is why he won't even refer to the new shows as "spin-offs"!

Posting to his blog on Sunday night, he wrote:

"None of these new shows will be ‘spinning off' from GoT in the traditional sense. We are not talking Joey or AfterMASH or even [Frasier] or Lou Grant, where characters from one show continue on to another. So all of you who were hoping for the further adventures of Hot Pie are doomed to disappointment. Every one of the concepts under discussion is a prequel, rather than a sequel. Some may not even be set on Westeros."

What!? No more Arya, Jon, or Daenerys? That doesn't bode well for our faves making it through the rest of the Thrones timeline…

Still, those who have actually see the Friends spinoff Joey will probably join our collective sigh of relief over this news.

Martin's update wasn't entirely disappointing — he noted there is now a FIFTH pilot script in development instead of the previously reported four.

Even better, he's officially credited as a co-writer on two of the four previously announced prequels — and is creatively involved on all of the series to some degree. He continued:

John Oliver Is Gonna Go Ahead And Stop You Right There, Trolls…

Last week on Last Week Tonight, John Oliver gave us the heads up on some shady moves by Donald Trump and his team to roll back net neutrality.

Once again, he gave viewers an easy path to make their voices heard, to tell the FCC that they wanted their Internet to be a fair market where no websites got preferential treatment because of corporate interest!

Unfortunately what some people chose to do with that path was a liiiiittle misguided. Or in some cases just plain horrible.

Between bots, fake names, real racism, and of course, tons of pro-Trump trolls, let the HBO host show you some of the best and worst comments so far in the fight for a free Internet.

Politician Chokes On His Dinner, Busts Open Face BC He Was Laughing So Hard At HBO's Veep!

no title

Politics are a dangerous game, but apparently not as dangerous as political satire.

That's what Australian politician Graham Perrett learned after almost laughing himself to death while watching Veep.

The acclaimed HBO comedy had the Labor MP in (literal) stitches after he laughed so hard, he choked on his sushi and knocked himself unconscious — giving himself a black eye and a nasty gash on his cheek!

The parliamentarian from Queensland told BuzzFeed News the incident went down last Sunday night while he was watching the Season Six premiere of the Emmy and Golden Globe-winning political comedy.

Perrett was chowing down on sushi during a scene where congressman — or, as Selina Meyer calls him, "Jolly Green Jizz Face" — Jonah Ryan gets caught by frenemy Dan Egan shaving his head to trick people into thinking he still has cancer.

Perrett said the following scene full of shaving puns was so hilarious, it led him to a full on choking fit. He explained:

The Top 10 Most Jaw-Dropping Moments From HBO's Girls

no title

Lena Dunham's Girls has come to an end.

After six seasons of soul-searching, shouting, and sublimely weird sex scenes, Sunday night saw the curtains close for the (second) HBO show about four women living in New York City.

The finale was underwhelming to say the least, but we guess that's the point Lena, Jenni Konner, and Judd Apatow were trying to make about "reality." Because unlike Sex and the City, this series wasn't about romanticizing the pain of finding your way.

That being said, there were still plenty of over-the-top, wild, and just plain WHOA moments to revel in…

Veep Had To Cut A Golden Shower Joke Because It Was Too Real Once Donald Trump Became President!

no title

Is it life imitating art? Or art trying like hell not to imitate life because life is too damn depressing??

On Veep, Julia Louis-Dreyfus plays a Vice President who became President despite being largely unqualified and hilariously self-centered.

Sound familiar? It did to David Mandel as well.

The showrunner wrote a guest column for THR on Wednesday, in which he explained how Donald Trump actually winning the Presidency affected the show.

Mostly, it bummed them all out:

Sean Spicer's Hitler Press Conference Fail Fits WAY Too Perfectly With The Veep Closing Credits!

Filed under: TV NewsPolitikDonald TrumpYouTubeEmmysFunnyJulia Louis-Dreyfus

no title

It's a tough time for political satire when the current White House one big running joke.

No one knows this better than David Mandel and the creative team behind the acclaimed HBO political comedy Veep.

The showrunner admitted that Donald Trump's administration has made it particularly hard to satirize politics when the actual POTUS makes Julia Louis-Dreyfus' Selina Meyer look like a potty-mouthed George Washington.

And although Matt Walsh plays the world's dumbest press secretary on the Emmy winning series, actual press secretary Sean Spicer gives the dim-witted Mike McLintock a run for his money!

Related: RIDICULOUS Sean Spicer Moments!

YouTube user Dan Ketchum proved this with the help of Spicer's latest White House press briefing blunder, in which he falsely claimed Adolf Hitler "didn't sink to using chemical weapons" on his people.

To demonstrate how we're actually living in a political comedy, Ketchum spliced together footage from Spicer's presser with Veep's closing credits — which usually tag the episode by highlighting a character's incompetency.

Watch the hilarious clip (below) to see why Spicey really belongs in the ensemble comedy!
