Activities are wonderful, but sometimes, it’s fine to want to shut the world out for a couple of days, and make some serious time for you. Don’t be afraid of FOMO, either. There will always be another party, another pub crawl, another picnic. The time you’ll spend indulging in the things you want to do, alone, are well worth it.

4 Reasons To Be Psyched About "Downton Abbey" Season 5
What's Ahead For Lady Mary & Branson?

If you just saw the trailer for “Downton Abbey”‘s fifth season and are dying to know what’s next for The Crawleys, we’re here to give you a taste of what we will see come January! (Or get on a plane to London, where the fifth season is already on!) “It feels harder this year to talk about than any other previous series,” acknowledged Laura Carmichael at a recent press event. “We’re so stuck in not wanting to overshare and spoil!”

So what can the cast reveal?! This season opens in 1924 and there will be lots of new changes and personal journeys for each character. While Shirley MacLaine and Paul Giametti won’t be present this season, (though they may come back in the future!) new characters are coming in, like Simon Bricker (played by Richard E. Grant) and troublemaker Lady Anstruther (Anna Chancellor). Read on to find out what you can look forward to. Keep reading »

Cersei Lannister’s Controversial Naked Scene Will Be Shown On “Game Of Thrones”

Cersei Lannister's Controversial Naked Scene Will Be Shown On Game Of Thrones

The next season of “Game of Thrones” will depict a pivotal scene in which Cersei Lannister — the Queen regent and mother to the dearly departed King Joffrey — is stripped naked and shamed by the High Septon, after the show’s producers reached an agreement with Croatian film commissioners. Originally, the film commission was reluctant to give the show permission to film the nude scene in Dubrovnik, Croatia, because it would have required actress Lena Headey (goddess) to walk naked through an actual church. Rather than cut the scene, which most “Game of Thrones” fans who’ve read the books will tell you is essential to Cersei’s story arc, the show and the film commission reached a compromise, and Headey will only be nude walking through the streets, but not in the actual house of worship. Phew! [Huffington Post]

The First Same-Sex "So You Think You Can Dance" Routine Was Worth The Wait
Travis Wall's Choreography Is Flawless As Usual

“So You Think You Can Dance” has long been one of the few truly inspiring, talent-filled, positive reality TV shows, but it’s not perfect. Up until last night’s episode, the show had never shown a dance routine focused on same-sex relationships, featuring same-sex dance partners. But man, while it took the show 11 years, it was worth the wait. Travis Wall (the runner-up in season two), himself a gay man, choreographed a moving routine about the fight for marriage equality, featuring two men and two women who first dance in pairs and then as a foursome. What an important moment for an already wonderful show. [Buzzfeed]
