So Long, Westeros: 'Game Of Thrones' Ending After Season 8

8/3/2015 7:17pm EDT
Game of Thrones
Game of Thrones fans would probably live in Westeros forever if they could, but they've got some sad news coming- the series might be ending after Season 8.

According to Us Weekly, Michael Lombardo- that's the president of programming for HBO- dropped that particular bomb at the Television Critic's Association press tour on Thursday.

Lombardo was asked if Season 7 would be the end point for Game of Thrones, and he revealed the show would probably push just one year past that. "Seven seasons and out has never been the conversation," stated Lombardo. "The question is how many beyond the sev...

'The Strain' Recap: Vampires Vs. Lucha Libre

8/3/2015 6:35am EDT
The Strain
The Strain isn't becoming The Walking Dead, is it? Last week, the show was struck with a sudden case of Crappy Kid Syndrome. And this week, with "The Silver Angel," we're introduced to a new, nasty human element- bands of curfew-enforcing cops patrolling Red Hook at night, and beating the hell out of Fet for the sole crime of being a lovable rogue.

And for blowing up a subway station.

And for being out past curfew. But still.

It's very reminiscent of The Walking Dead's whole "zombies are scary, but it's humans that are the real evil" schtick. Here's a hint: humans are not the real enemy....

'Hannibal' Recap: The Red Dragon Is... A Real Dragon?

Hannibal TV Series
Holy crap. Hannibal is on a roll- last week's "premiere" of the Red Dragon storyline was top-notch, and our second our, "And the Woman Clothed with the Sun…" (so long, food-based episode titles) hasn't lost a speck of momentum.

This whole "cop show" thing really gels with Hannibal, as much as I enjoy formless modern art European vacation TV.

This week: Will and Hannibal coalesce, Dolarhyde makes a friend, Abigail does serial killer prep work in flashback. Not much, as far as story goes (only two episodes into the Red Dragon stuff, Hannibal can afford to stop and savor things). But two mom...

'The Bachelorette' After The Final Rose Recap: Nick Tears Into K
You saw The Bachelorette's Season 11 finale. You read our recap of that finale (presumably- if not, here you go). Now for the final hour of soothing, post-finale fluff that is After the Final Rose.

First up, it's Kaitlyn and Shawn! Look at these two. Arm in arm, all over each other. So adorable. Also, kudos to Chris Harrison for the nastiest Bachelorette burn since Amy Schumer's guest spot. Chris asks Shawn how it felt when Kaitlyn told him "well… for the second time this season," that he was the one.

Ooooooooooooooooooh. I know Chris is supposed to be loving and supportive of the whole B...

'The Bachelorette' Finale Recap: Which Guy Gets His Heart Crushe

Considering it's Tuesday morning, you probably know the answer already, having A) watched the episode, B) read about it online, or C), stepped outside and seen at least one middle-aged woman cartwheeling down the sidewalk, shrieking, "Kaitlyn and [REDACTED]!!! Kaitlyn and [REDACTED]!!"
