HBO Shows Will Finally Be Available Online to Non-HBO Subscribers, But There’s a Catch

Or, I should say, HBO shows will finally be available online legally to non-HBO subscribers. Because, while it’s technically illegal for someone who doesn’t get HBO to log into someone else’s HBO GO account, it’s not like that ever stopped anyone. But HBO GO isn’t the subject of this news. Nope. HBO’s getting in bed with the Overlord of the Internet: Amazon.

Edit: This just in: According to Variety HBO’s Amazon deal does not include Game of Thrones. Ditto Entourage, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and Sex and the City, which have other U.S. syndication deals. And “new and future shows,” including True Detective and Silicon Valley, are excluded under the current deal as well. Thanks, HBO.

New Farscape Movie, Sci-Fi Show For Peter Dinklage Are In the Works

An article on broke the Meh, no big news that Farscape writer/co-executive producer Justin Monjo is writing a movie spin-off of his cult classic sci-fi show. Oh, and he’s also working on a sci-fi pilot called The Beasts of Valhalla for HBO, and Peter Dinklage is in talks to star.

You know. Boring stuff like that. Who cares about a Farscape sequel? I’m kidding, please don’t kill me.

Why Yes, We Did Make 38 Game Of Thrones Preview Screencaps To Geek Out On

Or make fun of. Maybe a little of both. Not sure if you’ve noticed but The Mary Sue staff are big Game of Thrones fans. Well. Myself and Rebecca anyway. Susana doesn’t watch but she does enjoy a good Brienne story. I digress. Rebecca and I (and I think most of you) were really excited about the Game of Thrones Season 4 preview HBO aired the other night. So much so, we felt the need to dissect it. All of it. Ok, almost all of it. Enjoy our ridiculousness!
