Pam and Eric are having some issues with their pouty daughter Willa, who is NOT going with them to track down and kill Sarah Newlin. Even though the polar ice cap sexy that is Eric Northman made her into vamp, he certainly didn’t stick around to raise her. On the contrary, she looked upon Tara her vampire momma. She castigates Eric for leaving her, and Pam for leaving Tara. If you guessed ...

'True Blood': Bailey Noble On Saying Goodbye To Adilyn Bellefleu
Life hasn't been very easy for Adilyn Bellefleur, but Bailey Noble is enjoying her time playing Adilyn on HBO's hit series True Blood. With the seventh and final season of the show underway, we caught up with Bailey last week to talk about her promotion to series regular status and how difficult it is for her not to tell anyone what's really going on in Bon Temps.

"I'm not quite ready for it to be over yet!" laughed the actress, who joined True Blood in a recurring capacity last season. "I want to spend more time with [Adilyn]. When the show's done, she's done."

And hopefully not 'done' a...

Casting for the second season of HBO's hit series True Detective is underway, and by the middle of next week we should have a good idea of who will star on the show, replacing season one leads Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson.

Rumor has it there will be three main stars, one female and two male, and HBO programming president Michael Lombardo has promised to give fans a little more to go on over the next week or so.

George R.R. Martin Flips The Bird To Those Who Doubt He'll Finis
It's generally common courtesy to not speculate how someone is going to die - especially when that person is... you know, a real, living, actual person. And double-especially when that person is George R.R. Martin - the acclaimed author behind the incredibly popular 'A Song of Ice and Fire' book series, and the mastermind of HBO's 'A Game of Thrones.'

Now, granted, we've all theorized about how our favorite or most hated characters will die on Game of Thrones. "Who's going to bite the dust next?" is the thought that's on everyone's minds as they are reading the books or watching the show. ...

5 TV Shows For Your 'Game Of Thrones' Withdrawal

5 TV Shows For Your 'Game Of Thrones' Withdrawal
Admit it, you have Game of Thrones withdrawal. It's OK, we're not judging you here at Starpulse, mainly because we're in the same boat! We miss Game of Thrones as much as you do, and the idea of waiting for season 5 when it airs sometime around April 2015, well, is tearing us up inside. After four years of investing our time, patience, love, hate and endless fan chatter about the characters of Game of Thrones, to have them snatched away from us yet again is genuinely cruel.

However, there is hope! While you may have to wait just under a year until you get your Game of Thrones fix, there ...

HBO's 'The Leftovers' Leaves Us Wanting More

HBO's 'The Leftovers' Leaves Us Wanting More
Some may be skeptical about HBO's new series "The Leftovers" simply because it was created by Damon Lindelof, the man behind "Lost." The ABC series left many scratching their heads, particularly with an ending many found dissatisfying. So why should viewers tune in to Lindelof's newest creation?

The premise of "The Leftovers" is fairly simple. It centers on a group of people who must cope with life after two percent of the world's population (140 million people) suddenly disappear with no explanation. This event is known as "The Sudden Departure." Interestingly, the list of the missing inc...

Ever Wondered What A Retro 'Game Of Thrones' Might Look Like? Now you Don't Have To

Ever Wondered What A Retro 'Game Of Thrones' Might Look Like? No
Remember VHS tapes? There's a little bit of a hipster inside of us all - we all yearn for 'the good ol days' when everything was 'more simple' (except for rewinding those damn tapes.)

Well apparently Game of Thrones fans have dreamed up an alternate reality in which Game of Thrones came out in 1995 - they even made a pretty convincing VHS style trailer for the show, complete with an authentic 90's style HBO opener, and a very appropriate theme song by Queen.

Is 1995 not far back enough for you? Well no problem. Because there also just happens to be an 80s style rendition of the incred...

Warm up your True Blood (you did stockpile some before the Hep V contamination, right?) in the microwave, have a seat, and allow me to fill you in on the salient points of this evening’s goings-on in Bon Temps.

Previously in Season 6 - A whole bunch of silliness happened. Bill became a vampire god and annoyed everyone. Eric made the evil governor’s daughter into a vamp. Jason met a really-old vampiress with boundary issues. Jessica ate most of Andy’s insta-aged fairy daughters (don’t ask) ...
