If you ever loved ‘Doctor Who,’ now is the time to watch






TwitterFacebook

There are a dozen very good reasons why you might have stopped watching Doctor Who. Maybe you’re a holdout from the classic series, which ran from 1963 to 1989. Maybe you loved Christopher Eccleston in the role and couldn’t stand David Tennant; maybe you’re a die-hard Ten fan who loathed Matt Smith. 

More likely, you’ve been turned off at some point in the Peter Capaldi era. No doubt you love the grumpy old Scot himself, but showrunner Steven Moffat’s increasingly twisty scripts, reset-button endings and preference for jokes over satisfying plot points have left many former fans with Who fatigue.  Read more…

‘Stranger Things’ is going where no Netflix show ever has: Comic-Con’s Hall H






TwitterFacebook

Netflix has never been on the big Hall H stage at Comic-Con, but then again, they’ve never had anything quite like Stranger Things.

Wanna know how the ‘Game of Thrones’ cast celebrated the Battle of the Bastards?






TwitterFacebook

The Starks and the Boltons may have been sworn enemies on Game of Thrones, but they didn’t let that get in the way of a good time.

Speaking at the Con of Thrones convention in Nashville on Friday, Iwan Rheon (aka Ramsay Bolton) revealed that after filming wrapped on episode 609, “Battle of the Bastards,” the two sides put aside their differences for an evening of revelry.

“When we finished filming ‘Battle of the Bastards,’ all the Bolton guys and the Stark guys got together and had a massive party,” he recalled. “So we were in there having a great night with all the guys from my army — the Bolton boys had written a song about Ramsay, so that was really good fun. When you’re filming it, you don’t get to interact much with those guys, and they put so much hard work into it, so it was a great way to celebrate the whole thing with them.” Read more…
