Game of Thrones

'Game of Thrones' Author George R.R. Martin Talks Series End!

by Kara Warner

This one is for all of my fellow fans/readers of George R.R. Martin's "Song of Ice and Fire" series -- the source material upon which the upcoming HBO series "Game of Thrones" is based. We've been rolling out a few teaser interviews with "Thrones" (or "GoT" for short) cast members talking about tackling their challenging roles, the beloved source material and the tricky of sex scenes. Today I'm happy to present a little snippet from my chat with Mr. Martin himself, wherein I inquired about whether he's put the book series' long-awaited and highly anticipated ending to paper yet...

Game of Thrones premieres on HBO on April 17, 2011.

About the Series

Pittsburgh, 1975. Edward Borman, a lowly government office drone, finds himself trapped when the deadly men of Mercury seize his office building as a staging ground for their nefarious plot. Aided by Jack Yaeger, a daring aerospace engineer from a mysterious organization known as "The League," Edward must stop the invaders and their doomsday device, the Gravity Engine.

Drawing from the same retro serials that inspired such films as Star Wars and Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Mercury Men reintroduces audiences to the great mystery, danger, and suspense the stories were originally known for. The series consists of 10 online episodes, each approximately 7 minutes in length.

The Mercury Men is created by Christopher Preksta, best known as the writer/director of Captain Blasto, for which he was nominated for two Streamy Awards. His short concept film The Mercury Men (filmed prior to the series) was featured at San Diego Comic Con (2008), the Brainwash Movie Festival (awarded Best Film, 2008), and the Action on Film Festival (awarded Best Science Fiction Film & Best Visual Effects, 2008).

Additional information from Syfy's BlastR:

Aided by Jack Yaeger (Curt Wootten/Captain Blasto, The Hidden Blade), a daring aerospace engineer from a mysterious organization known as "The League," and Grace (Amy Staggs/Friday Night Lights, Death Proof), who was only at the building to get a government form stamped, Edward must stop the invaders and their Doomsday Device, the Gravity Engine.

Being Human 3 (UK) - Total SciFi Online: Phil Trethowan Interview

Phil Trethowan: Human Resources

Posted on Friday 21 January 2011

A former bus depot on Barry Island – hardly where you’d expect to find a ghost, a vampire and a whole collection of werewolves. But that’s where the new series of Being Human was shot last summer, following the show’s relocation from Bristol at the end of the second season. Paul Simpson visited during the penultimate week of shooting in September, and caught up with producer Phil Trethowan to set the scene for the new year…

Q: In story terms there’s a good reason for our heroes to move from Bristol to Cardiff, but why was it done in real life – to be part of the BBC Wales team in Cardiff?

Phil Trethowan: "It was both, to be honest. We were aware at the end of series one that things were gravitating towards Wales, and that the BBC saw that as the home for drama. We were fine with that, as long as we were able to storyline it. The worst case scenario is things suddenly relocate and you’re scrabbling to explain why you’ve moved with hindsight. We were given plenty of time, so we could storyline it properly.

At the end of series two, we leave the guys in the middle of nowhere, capable of going anywhere, and in story terms, they wouldn’t want to go into Bristol anyway. Mitchell has his private reason, because of the Box Tunnel Massacre, and it wouldn’t have felt right for the guys to go back to their house, because they’ve just lost Annie – and that was Annie’s house. It would feel almost macabre staying there with Annie gone, as was the status at the end of series two.

We used the move positively to give the show a new lease of life – not that it needed it, but what the heck? If you’re going to move, then do it with style, go for a bigger set and have fun with it. We totally embraced it..."

Being Human Series 3 begins on 23 January 2011 (BBC Three).

Premieres on BBC America on Saturday, February 19, 2011.

8/7c CBS

After depicting crime-solving seer Allison DuBois' psychic sleuthing for seven seasons (five on NBC and two on CBS), the paranormal crime drama dematerializes for good. The series finale revolves around the transforming domestic dynamics in the DuBois family. Motherly ghost-buster Allison begins a new chapter in her life when she launches a career as a lawyer, all while Joe lands a new job as well. Yet these developments lead the couple in opposing directions — and will ultimately leave a lasting impact on the entire DuBois family.

After a seven-season, 130-episode run on NBC and CBS, it's case closed for psychic crime-solver Allison Dubois.

9/8c Fox

With Walter's well-known love for music and drugs, it figures that his Euterpean tastes tilt toward progressive and psychedelic rock. And prominent in his vinyl collection is a band called Violet Sedan Chair, so Walter is in for a treat when he meets Roscoe Joyce (Christopher Lloyd), the group's keyboardist. Also of note is the show's move to Friday, and the episode's title, "The Firefly," is likely a nod to Joss Whedon's sci-fi cult classic "Firefly" that floundered on Friday nights.
