'Game of Thrones' Review: Memorable Moments from 'The Gift'
An episode without Arya, very little Jon Snow, and an extra helping of Samwell Tarly’s gnarly sex scene? An episode where the Sand Snakes continue to be the worst written characters in the history of the television medium? What did we do to deserve this, Game of Thrones?

“The Gift” starts out slow, filling time with mind-numbingly slow stuff at The Wall, Dornish women showing their breasts for no reason other than boredom, and sex scenes that serve no narrative purpose. But at least the hanging threads in the major storylines are still interesting. Here are the most memorable moments from ...

'Game Of Thrones' Outrage Continues: Senator Boycotts Show After
Senator Claire McCaskill is boycotting "Game of Thrones" after watching Sunday night's episode, which included a "disgusting and unacceptable" rape scene.

In the episode titled "Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken," newlywed Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) is assulted by her new husband Ramsey Bolton (Iwan Rheon) on their wedding night as the servant Reek, AKA Theon Greyjoy, watches.

In response to the incident, the Missouri senator tweeted: "Ok, I'm done Game of Thrones. Water Garden, stupid. Gratuitous rape scene disgusting and unacceptable. It was a rocky ride that just ended."

Ok, I'm done Game ...

Has 'Game Of Thrones' Obsession With Rape Gone Too Far?

May 18th, 2015 8:41am EDT
Game of Thrones
Just when you thought the Game of Thrones character hadn’t dealt with enough horror, the show manages to pull out yet another horrific, unexpected scene. “Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken” constantly built up the tension from beginning to end. It starts with a relatively sleepy set of Arya scenes, filling the middle with rising stakes for every storyline, and then ends with the overwrought Sansa scene. Most of it was very well done, save for the consistently disappointing Sand Snakes, even if the direction of Sansa’s storyline is a continuation with the show’s obsession with rape.

Here are the mo...

Role Of A Lifetime Left Queen Latifah Drained

Queen Latifah 'Drained' By Bessie Smith HBO Biopic
Queen Latifah revealed that portraying blues legend Bessie Smith in the HBO biopic was "draining."

"I felt like it was the role of a lifetime," stated Latifah to Syracuse.com. The film was in development for more than 20 years and Latifah was always kept in mind for the title role.

"There was no Google when this movie came to me," she says during a recent conversation. "It wasn't like I could just pull it up on a computer and find out about her. So I bought the box set and started listening to her music. And initially I was terrified, because this music is so different, her voice is so di...

'Game of Thrones' Recap & Review: 5 Memorable Moments From 'Kill
It must be an unspoken rule in Game of Thrones that the Mother’s Day episode must always feature Daenerys playing mom to dragons, former slaves, and whoever else pops up. A couple of other mother related plots reared their heads in “Kill the Boy” to disturbing results. Brienne continues to honor her vow to the Stark mother, poor Walda Frey discovers she’s pregnant, Myranda reminds Sansa of her mom, and Roose Bolton tells his son the lovely story of the time he raped his mother. Happy Mother’s Day?

'Game Of Thrones' Recap & Review: 5 Memorable Moments From 'Sons
Here are the most memorable moments from "Game of Thrones" - "Sons of the Harpy:"

Faith Militant VS Tommen

It’s almost thrilling to see every bad decision Cersei makes in her quest to destroy Queen Margaery’s life. This week she’s sunk to new lows and we couldn’t be happier. First she sends away Mace Tyrell to negotiate with the Iron Bank, leaving his seat on the council vacated and his children unprotected.

Next she reinstates the faith militant, essentially giving the Sparrows ultimate power over King’s Landing. They make quick work of their new power by clearing out all the brothels (...

'Game Of Thrones': Exciting Prospects Are On The Horizon

'Game Of Thrones' Recap & Review: 5 Memorable Moments From 'The
The best thing this season of Game of Thrones has done is converge some of the many characters into single storylines. With a great many characters spread all across the many lands, there’s a danger of losing focus and having too much going on. That’s always been one of the major downfalls of the show, having too much going on and not enough time to fully focus on the characters that really matter.

But this season has put characters that were adrift on a path that will see them come together. The possibilities of the future storylines with characters that normally wouldn’t interact are one...

'Game Of Thrones' Recap: 5 Best Moments From 'The House Of Black
“The House of Black and White” is an even stronger episode than the first, proving the season is definitely on track to be more than shoehorned scenes to meet quotas and dragging storylines. Every piece felt like it was progressing the story inside on continuing old threads from the seasons before. There are still some massive missteps, such as overestimating how long we’ll stomach Tyrion’s self-pity and our interest in Grey Worm, but overall it was a great episode of new beginnings and endings. Here are the best moments of the episode:
