A new trailer for season four of “Girls” has arrived, and our favorite flailing anti-heroines look just as aimless and tone-deaf as ever — and I guess we really wouldn’t have it any other way, would we? The trailer also includes an excellent dig at Woody Allen in which Jessa recites his quote “the heart wants what it wants” and Hannah shuts that nonsense down. I am officially excited for the next season in spite of myself. It premieres on HBO on January 11 at 9 p.m.. [HuffIngton Post]
Theories abound about George R.R. Martin’s plans for the Song of Ice and Fire series, and therefore the Game of Thrones series, but Martin says that the most ridiculous theory of all is that he’s actually finished with the last two books of the series and is sitting on them to create demand. At the 92nd Street Y event for the release of the World of Ice and Fire companion book to the series, Martin said:
“From my point of view, the craziest one is the people who believe that I’ve actually finished all of the books, and I’m just sitting on them for some reason in order to get more money or increase the value, you know, to release them an appropriate point. That’s a pretty crazy one, but there seem to be people who actually believe that.”

OH YAY: It’s been confirmed that there will be flashbacks on season five of “Game of Thrones.” A woman on Tumblr had leaked that her daughter had read for the part of “Young Cersei,” which unofficially confirmed some of series fans’ dreams, but now writers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have officially stated that flashbacks will be included.
Teeny weeny show spoilers ahead (would you guys catch up already?!), but I won’t spoil anything for those of you who are lazy and didn’t read the books (I’m kidding, you’re not lazy, it took me months to get through all five and I had some pretty big chunks of free time). Keep reading »
I got married very quickly: we had only been dating for five months. I didn’t doubt that I’d found the man I wanted to spend my life with, but I did feel confused in the weeks and months after we’d gotten hitched what marriage was supposed to mean and if so, how should we make it work? We knew why we got married romantically and we knew why we got married legally — but was that all there was to it? In an upcoming HBO documentary airing on Monday, June 30th, a documentary filmmaker who pays his bills by doing wedding videography, seeks to explain the secrets of wedded bliss. In “112 Weddings,” Doug Block went back and interviewed former clients whose weddings he filmed to check in on how matrimony turned out. Some explain how they’ve kept a relationship alive all this time; others explain how their nuptials lead to divorce. Sounds like a film to watch with the husband, yes?
