Game of Thrones is Officially the Most Pirated Television Show of 2012

Game of Thrones lost out on the “most pirated television” title last year to Dexter. Could the scrappy younger show pull out the ignominious win this year?


Yes it could.

The Dexter/Dexter’s Laboratory Cartoon I’m Shocked I Haven’t Seen Done Already

To be fair, I don’t think I’ve ever watched an episode of Dexter, so it’s not like I was watching the Dexter fandom that closely for mashups. But I have been frustrated when people mistake me for referring to Dexter when I am, in fact, trying to allude to Cartoon Network’s classic show Dexter’s Laboratory (in which laboratory always has five syllables).

I do think Screen Junkies made a mistake here by not allowing Dexter to retain his inexplicable accent.

Genre Stars Give Us The Definitive Spoiler Rules [VIDEO]

There’s been extra spoiler arguments lately due to recent happenings on The Walking Dead. Hell, even AMC accidentally spoiled something on their website. We do our best here at The Mary Sue to make sure we don’t spoil anything for you but we all make mistakes sometimes. (When debating a spoiler just yesterday, Jamie asked me if a baby could have been conceived and born since the time the event took place. That’s her rule.) But for those who blatantly spoil entertainment for the rest of us, a few Hollywood actors are here to lay down the law. Nelsan Ellis (Lafayette from True Blood), Andre Royo (Bubbles from The Wire), Julie Benz (Rita from Dexter), Michael Trucco (Anders from Battlestar Galactica), Sarah Wayne Callies (Lori from The Walking Dead), and Masi Oka (Hiro from Heroes) present the spoiler rules. The only missing thing from this video? Alex Kingston’s River Song.

Things We Saw Today: The World’s Oldest Photograph?

The photo above is said to be the world’s oldest known photograph, taken in 1825 by one Nicephore Niepce, whose method of developing the photo was known as heliogravure. It sounds crazy complicated. (via Bit Rebels)

If You Want to See Dexter On Netflix, Do It Now

When Showtime‘s contract with Netflix ends this summer, its current lineup of original programming will no longer be available on Netflix Watch Instantly. This applies to shows that are still producing and airing new episodes, such as Dexter, Californication, and possibly Weeds (which is owned by Lionsgate and not Showtime). Past Showtime series such as The Tudors and Sleeper Cell (in other words, the ones that are already on DVD) will not be affected when the contract runs out. So, if you were planning a Dexter marathon, plan it for the very near future or save up for all five seasons on DVD. And no, this is not related to Netflix possibly outbidding Showtime for the original series House of Cards, making Netflix a player in the hour-long drama series game. Or so they say.
