It’s back! Our favorite show featuring feuding families, bloody battles of a crown, murder, mayhem, and the occasional dragon returns to remind viewer what it feels like to fear for your favorite characters on a weekly basis again.

40 Awesome Tyrion Lannister Quotes From 'Game Of Thrones'
Game of Thrones returns for its season 5 premere Sunday night. Many of the show's characters are well-known for their sharp wit and colorful dialogue, but there are few characters as beloved for their sense of humor as Tyrion Lannister. Actor Peter Dinklage has won an Emmy and numerous other awards for his role as the little Lannister, and it's easy to see why. When the "Half-Man" isn't getting up to no good in a brothel, he's using his great intellect to take down men twice his size.

Here are 40 of Tyrion's best quotes from the first four seasons of Game of Thrones for you to brush up on...

Suzanne Cryer Livens Up HBO's 'Silicon Valley'
Move over, boys - HBO's Silicon Valley has a new woman in town. Suzanne Cryer portrays Laurie Bream, the new boss on the business comedy, and we connected with her last week to discuss becoming part of the series for its second season and how she's just as busy as her new alter ego.

"Definitely it is joining a party that's already in full swing," Suzanne said of coming aboard the show. "When I read the character description and the material we had for this character, it's very different from me but there are a lot of things that click for me, because she's highly organized and she leads wi...

"It was incredible," he enthused. "It felt so natural and fun and free to play with those guys, and then I got that call...When I got to do this, it was to me one of the best comedies on TV. So getting the call to be a regular was unreal. It was like I'd won the lottery in heaven on my birthday."

'Game Of Thrones' Wish List: Hopes And Worries For Season 5
As Game of Thrones Season 5 approaches, loyal fans may be feeling the familiar combination between excitement and dread. On one hand one of the most surprising, conniving, and entertaining TV shows is coming back. But on the other hand, there’s always a high likelihood that the characters we’ve grown to love will be demeaned, tortured, and murdered in front of our very eyes, just like every other season.

However, there’s something very different about this season. The showrunners, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, have been more open than ever about diverging from the source material and surpa...

Why Does Maisie Williams Watch 'Game of Thrones' With Her Drunk Grandmother?

March 26th, 2015 8:23am EDT
'Game Of Thrones' Star Maisie Williams Watches The Show With Her
"Game of Thrones" is perhaps the least family-friendly show on television. Gather the whole family around -- parents, grandparents, young children -- and be revolted as writhing nude sex fiends are hacked apart with a broadsword.

But for Maisie Williams -- who stars in "Game of Thrones" as Arya Stark -- watching the show has to be a family affair.

As she explained to Jimmy Kimmel on "Jimmy Kimmel Live," "We used to watch it with my nan, and my auntie, and my cousins, and my dogs, and the whole family, everyone."

That can get a bit awkward. Especially with Williams' 87-year-old grandma w...

It's like the season just started! Although, it has been kind of a long journey from an unfriendly writer's workshop at the University of Iowa to a bathtub full of pregnant crazy in Brooklyn.

The season finale sends everyone off on strange new adventures. Some ridiculous (Jessa will be the WORST THERAPIST EVER. And I had a therapist once tell me I had fat thighs), some intriguing (Marnie going solo with much better material this time), and some that feel just right (Hannah and Fran getting together).

"Home Birth" revolves around Adam's earthy-crunchy-crazy sister Caroline giving birth. Th...
