The final episode ever of Game of Thrones airs Sunday, May 19, which means you'll need a new TV obsession to fill the giant, dragon-shaped hole left in your heart. As we bid goodbye to Westeros, here's a list of quality TV shows full of fantasy, violence and enough thematic similarities to justify a hearty binge. The Last Kingdom (3 seasons) Based on Bernard Cornwell's Saxon Series novels, The Last Kingdom is set in England during the 10th century, when Viking invasions were commonplace. The series centers around a character named Uhtred (Alexander Dreymon), a Saxon noble captured and raised by the Vikings who fights for the English. Like Game of Thrones, The Last Kingdom has plenty of family drama, power struggles, complicated relationships and bloody battles. The violence is extremely graphic -- eye-gouging, beheading, stabbing and crucifixion are just some of the ways people die on this show.Watch The Last Kingdom on Netflix Vikings (5 seasons) Get ready … [Read more...] about Game of Thrones: 11 TV shows to watch after the season finale
When sharp-suited superassassin John Wick dives back into the intricately designed cloak-and-dagger universe established in the game-changing 2015 original and the 2017 sequel, it's bad news for just about anyone he meets. But it's great news for us.Released (or should that be unleashed?) around the world this week and killing it at the box office, John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum is barking mad. And not just because there are even more dogs thrown into the mix. The series started with soulful murderer Wick grieving his dead pet, and it's a sign of how the series has just gotten bigger, badder and madder that Chapter 3 -- Parabellum throws a squad of attack dogs into the ring.John Wick 3 picks up moments after the end of the second movie, with Keanu Reeves' hit man on the run from his shadowy masters. The series formula of stylish, visceral, relentlessly jaw-dropping action is firmly established by now, and this threequel wastes little time in getting into the thick of it. … [Read more...] about John Wick: Chapter 3
In the film American Dreamer, Jim Gaffigan plays a ride-share driver who also works as a driver for a drug dealer. The opening shot of the film is a close-up of Gaffigan. It's a different look for the comic than we've seen before: His normally cherubic face looks worn and tired, and his blue eyes have a muted gaze that carries the weight of a man who is scared and desperate. Gone is the beloved Emmy-award-winning comedian known for self-deprecating jokes about food, laziness and his five kids. There are definitely no Hot Pockets here.Due in September, American Dreamer is one of seven films to be released this year starring Gaffigan. He had three premieres earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival, including Troop Zero, in which he stars with Allison Janney and Viola Davis, and Them That Follow, where he plays a member of a snake-handling Christian cult. And if that weren't enough, Gaffigan recorded the very first stand-up special for Amazon Prime."I'm grateful that they're all … [Read more...] about The secret screen life of Jim Gaffigan
