In this thrilling fourth season based on George R.R. Martin’s bestselling books, the Lannisters’ control over the Iron Throne remains intact, but can they survive their own egos as well as the ongoing threats around them? While an unshaken Stannis Baratheon continues to rebuild his army on Dragonstone, a more immediate danger comes from the south, as Oberyn Martell, the Lannister-loathing “Red Viper of Dorne,” arrives at King’s Landing to attend Joffrey’s wedding. At the Wall, the Night’s Watch seems overmatched against Mance Rayder’s advancing army of wildlings, which in turn is being trailed by an even more formidable foe. What’s more, Daenerys Targaryen, accompanied by her fierce trio of dragons and an Unsullied army, is poised to “liberate” Meereen, the largest Slaver City in the east, which could provide her with an imposing force to execute her ultimate plan of reclaiming the Iron Throne for her family.
In the third season of the hit HBO® drama series Game of Thrones, the Lannisters barely hold onto power after a savage naval onslaught from Stannis Baratheon, while stirrings in the north threaten to alter the overall balance of power.
This season, Hannah forges ahead with her dream of being a bestselling author and begins seeing someone new, but her enthusiasm is tempered by the responsibility she feels for her now-ex Adam (Adam Driver), convalescing after his S1-finale accident.

One of HBO’s signature shows, this one-hour drama series chronicles the life and times of Enoch “Nucky” Thompson (Golden Globe winner Steve Buscemi), Atlantic City’s undisputed czar at a time when Prohibition proved to be a major catalyst in the rise of organized crime in America. Picking up 16 months after Season 2 ended, Season 3 begins on New Year’s Eve 1922-23.
The Roaring ‘20s are about to start; though the economy is booming, alcohol has become scarce, competition is fierce, and gangster violence is heating up. Amidst this backdrop, Nucky, whose marriage to Margaret (Kelly Macdonald) has become a sham after she signed away his highway windfall to the church, faces new competition in the person of Gyp Rosetti (new cast member Bobby Cannavale), who builds a new strategic bulkhead between New York and Atlantic City in an effort to siphon off Nucky’s alcohol business. The conflict brings out the best and worst in Nucky, who proves his brutal mettle in a series of violent encounters. New and familiar faces also undergo compelling metamorphoses as the 12 new episodes of Boardwalk Empire unfold.
Sookie Stackhouse and her supernatural cohorts have a disturbing new political power play to deal with in Season 5 -a growing war between the Vampire Authority and 'vampire fundamentalists'--and the outcome could decide the fate of human existence.
In Season 5, the hit HBO series presents a whole new wave of otherworldly characters, including Vampire Guardian Roman (Emmy® - nominee Christopher Meloni) who seeks human-vampire co-existence; vampire zealot Salome (Valentina Cervi) who is intent on recreating the world in God's vampyric image; Authority Chancellor Nora (Lucy Griffiths) who shares the same maker as Sookie suitor Eric Northman; werewolves J.D. and Martha who want a reluctant Alcide to take his rightful place as packmaster; and more.
Former Senator Selina Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) has accepted the call to serve as Vice President of the United States. The job is nothing like she imagined and everything she was warned about. Veep follows Meyer and her staff as they attempt to make their mark and leave a lasting legacy, without getting tripped up in the day-to-day political games that define Washington.
Meyer's inner circle includes: her chief of staff Amy (Anna Chlumsky), longtime press spokesperson Mike McClintock (Matt Walsh), right hand and body man Gary (Tony Hale) and secretary Sue (Sufe Bradshaw) all of whom often do battle with Dan Egan (Reid Scott) an ambitious interloper and smug White House liaison Jonah (Tim Simons).
Created by Armando Iannucci (The Thick of It, In the Loop), the comedy is scripted but shot in an improvisational style. Veep is authentic without being specifically biographical about what it is like to hold the least effectual post in the most powerful office in the world.
