Game of Thrones Season 4: Ice and Fire: A Foreshadowing VIDEO SPOILERS #gameofthrones

In the revealing, hugely-hyped new 15-minute trailer, “Ice and Fire: A Foreshadowing,” the cast and crew confirm they will deliver on all the conflict and power plays, murder and mayhem, that everyone has anticipated when Game Of Thrones returns to HBO on April 6th.

‘Game of Thrones’ Season 4 Promises ‘Bloody Confrontations’
The cast and crew weigh in on what’s to come in 15-minute trailer
Take a look back and a look forward to the fourth season of the hit HBO series, the show features clips from upcoming episodes, behind-the-scenes-footage, interviews with talent, and cast members’ answers to questions posed by fans.
 Oberyn Martell a/k/a The Red Viper (Pedro Pascal) who walks with his hand over candle flames without flinching, says he came for King Joffery’s wedding, adding darkly,

“The Lannisters aren’t the only ones who pay their debts.” – Oberyn Martell

 

The producers of Game of Thrones say they know what the fans want from Season Four: Dragons, fire, battles and, of course, another (twisted) wedding. They plan to offer all this plus they’re also promising “a more exciting season” than the one that ended with the brutal Red Wedding…(!?)

In Game Of Thrones Season 4, the blood that spills matters as much as the blood that ties families together.

Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) must rely on the capricious whims of his sister Cersei (Lena Headey) more. Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Sam Tarly (John Bradley) depend equally upon one another to survive.

In a land far away from the Iron Throne, Daenerys Targaryen’s (Emilia Clarke) dragons are growing quickly and are at the age where they still look kinda cute but they are far more dangerous than ever. Their “mother” must puzzle out her role as a leader as she sits atop her own throne in what actress Emilia Clarke describes as her “tropical” throne room.

Almost Human Episode 1×10 Promo “Perception” VIDEO SPOILERS #almosthuman

 AN ALL-NEW “ALMOST HUMAN” will AIR MONDAY FEBRUARY 10, ON FOX*

Almost Human – Episode 1.10 – Perception – Promotional Photos (CR:FOX)

*Unfortunately, it won’t be in sequential order and so the story-line will have nothing to do with the cliffhanger at the end of Monday nights Almost Human episode 1.09 “Unbound.”

In this episode, we heard reference in a very ominous way, to a place called “The Wall”, where  it seems there is complete anarchy. Nine episodes in, and we are just hearing more than passing reference to an apparent hellhole which is walled-up inside the city(?) This is where the episode left off with the disgraced maker of Dorian (of the entire DRN line, actually) having fled, now wanted for suspicion of building a robot militia with stolen, uber-high tech parts though the police (except the droid, Dorian) believe he wouldn’t do something “that stupid.”

Speaking of “that stupid,” how smart was it that FOX television aired Almost Human utterly out of order –since episode two, so the relationship between the main characters was oddly “off” and references to some events made absolutely no sense? Also, the show has just come off a three-week hiatus after skipping two weeks once and one week another. Very hard on a brand-new audience unless they are huge devotees. And honestly, this show isn’t doing anything spectacular in the ratings that FOX can afford to ditz around like they did with the infamous scheduling of the long-ago but still lamented, Joss Whedon vehicle “Firefly.” I went looking tonight for as much current information about Almost Human as I could get, and based on it’s Monday night time slot, its inconsistent and out-of-order showing, and its only meh ratings, the scorekeepers have it on the bubble with it’s renewal being a toss-up–but FOX’s behavior seeming to indicate cancellation.

I’m OK with that. Michael Ealy as the droid, Dorian, was a nice find but the drab roles created for both female leads–Lili Taylor and Minka Kelly are a disappointment as was the  discovery of why the very handsome Karl Urban is, in most of his films, a second-stringer. He is easy on the eyes but lacks the acting chops to carry a series. So I guess this is my way of acknowledging that I believe there are just a few more episodes of Almost Human to come and that will be all they wrote.

I’m so glad to  have discovered a show in a slightly similar vein but done the right way–the thriller mystery horror sci fi offering, Helix on SyFy. It is halfway through it’s first season and it is a show to look forward to every Friday. They will be marathoning it this Thursday, February 6 at 5 pm C/6 pm E/P. Tune in, you’ll be glad you did.

Don’t miss an all-new episode Of Helix on SyFy Friday at 10|9c.
Helix Season 1: First Look at Episode 6 (Aniqatiga)

For me, one of the benchmarks of a great television show is how much discussion goes on between me and my watching partner about the show after we have watched a new episode. Syfy‘s great new offering, Helix, generates a great deal of verbal intercourse between us.

Before I get ahead of myself, I want to mention how involved the Helix creatives are with the audience, specifically, how great they they are at reaching out on Twitter. My Twitter handle is @cyn_mccrackan and I invite you to take a look at some of the names behind this show that have been IMO, awesome to follow this humble writer. Given the ginormous time-suck Twitter can be, some of the actors tend to favourite Tweets rather than full-on follow. Sometimes they retweet them which is truly appreciated. I’ve benefitted from this in the literal sense of more followers but more/most importantly, quality followers– other fans of Helix and the actors, writers and creators involved. It is very satisfying and absolutely enhances the viewing experience.

So, “R” and I watch Helix in real time each Friday night on SyFy. It’s a perfect show for this time of year in the Midwest US. You certainly don’t want to go out, rather settling in and having your mind blown is way more gratifying.
Some of the things about Helix that have blown our minds and/or that my watching partner and I have discussed (sometimes intensely), are mentioned in this great piece.

One of  several questions I had after watching episode 5, realizing the degree to which the Vector B’s are hallucinating via the experiences of Dr. Julia Walker (Kyra Zagorsky) and Dr. Rae Van Eigem (Miranda Handford), was, is everyone hallucinating? Maybe so. The piece I linked to above reinforces that notion. Until now, I’d not considered that the chip that was implanted in each doctor upon the CDC’s arrival to provide “access” throughout the compound, could also be doing all kinds of crazy things to our CDC group (though I did wonder if they were dreaming or hallucinating). Now it makes sense! Another instance of weirdness in episode 5 involved CDC leader Dr. Alan Farragut (Billy Campbell) after he and Daniel (Meegwun Fairbrother) ransacked Balleseros’ (Mark Ghanime) room. Alan turne, in mid sentence to address Daniel, but Daniel had evaporated like smoke. Poof. Gone. He wasn’t outside the room in the corridor, either.
My TV buddy also insists that Julia Walker is Dr. Hatake’s (Hiroyuki Sanada) daughter. He does have some odd paternal affection for her but until I get the hallucinations vs. reality straightened out, I’m not putting all my eggs in that basket.

Another thing I just noticed whilst checking for names on IMDb was that SPOILER despite having his skull bashed in with a fire extinguisher (in self-defence by Dr. Walker) and being a Vector, Dr. Joel Haven (Chimwemwe Miller) returns for the season  finale episode (Season 1, Episode 13: ‘Dans L’Ombre’).  WTH!

Helix is so. much. fun.

Love this heated discussion between security chief Daniel Aerov and the very distraught Dr. Alan Faragut. I have not seen Billy Campbell‘s work since a show I loved about 10 years back, “Once and Again,” and I hadn’t realized how much I missed him. In the case of Meegwun Fairbrother, this is my first encounter with the young actor but he is truly an onscreen presence, conveying a great deal of meaning especially in his lovely, expressive orbs.
