Sons of Anarchy has wrapped up, and ain’t that a tragedy? This was (and still is) one of my all-time favourite TV series. Kurt Sutter, the show’s creator, is a talented individual!
So let’s all raise our lighters in the air and croon along to this video tribute created by Mike Valenzuela, showing the last few scenes set to the finale song – Come Join the Murder by The White Buffalo & The Forest Rangers.
Enjoy it while you can – this video features scenes from the show, so it’s clearly only a matter of time until the video gets pulled for copyright infringement.
SPOILERS AHEAD! If you have not yet watched the final episode, do NOT watch this video until you have seen it. It’s basically an 8 minute spoiler.
Everyone feeling a bit weepy then? Me? Nooooooo… sniff. Someone’s been chopping onions, that’s all.
I don’t often buy series to keep, but I’m definitely planning on getting this complete set on Blu-Ray (or UK version) to watch again. Should anyone feel the need to get it for me, you know, coz you’re nice like that, well you’d just be a legend in my eyes! hint hint…
P.S. If you’d like to get this song so you can croon along in traffic, click here to view it in iTunes.
Finally! The trailer for Game of Thrones Season 5 is upon us. It seems like ages since the last series drew to a close and I’ve had to spend the intervening months watching Nashville (yes, I’m okay with admitting I’m a fan, but that’s a discussion for another day) and The Last Ship (‘Merica’s here to save the whole wide world you guys!). Also, and perhaps the saddest part of all this is that it has been a while since I last laid eyes upon the uber-fine Emelia Clarke, aka Daenerys Targaryen aka Mother of Dragons. You know the one, right? Her:
But enough waffling and pining for Ms Clarke. On with the trailer with which I click-baited you: Check it:
UPDATE: Nope nope nope nope. They’ve removed this vid. Sigh…
Looks like a goodie. (UPDATE: Well.. it did… when the video was available. I promise. For realsies.)
And in keeping with the theme of this post, here’s a wee something I found on Twitter a while ago that truly never gets old. While it’s from way back and thus referring to Season 4, the fact of the matter is that the season number is interchangeable for this series. Season 1? Check.
Season 3? Check.
Season 5? Probably. Naah, definitely. Check.
Season 5 episode 1 kicks off on 12 April in the US, and I think we can all safely assume that we here in South Africa should see it mere hours later as one of DSTV’s Express from the US offerings.
April in South Africa… Winter is coming.
See what I did there?
The guys from Entrourage
I haven’t been updating this site much lately, so kinda missed this: the news that Mark Wahlberg, executive producer of my favourite show of all time, Entourage, has told newsy folks that the script for the Entourage movie is finally ready. Well, to be precise, the articles claim that Mark was to receive a copy of the finished script from show creator Doug Ellin, not that it’s approved and good to start shooting or anything official like that. Details, details. Better late than never and all that, right? And here I’m referring to me telling you lot about this, and not him getting the script, although that’s valid too.
I for one have been waiting for what seems like ages, since the last episode wrapped up last year, to see what Ari Gold and the Entourage crew get up to next. The world is a somewhat sadder place at the moment without the latest wisecracks from everyone’s favourite agent, brilliantly played by Jeremy Piven, along with really entertaining performances from the gang – Vince, Turtle, Johnny Drama and Eric. Plus, Emmanuelle Chriqui isn’t exactly an eyesore, now is she?
This according to deadline.com:
(Doug) Ellin says that Wahlberg keeps promising “to kill me if I don’t write faster. Every time I see him, Mark says, ‘I’ve made 5 movies this year. Get going!”
He says his script starts about 6 months after the TV series leaves off. “There are interesting developments about Ari as a studio head, and that’s still the first page for me. But foremost is the friendship between the guys who are still hanging out and going to fun parties, and it continues with the same characters.”
Can’t wait! It’s going to be epic. As soon as any trailers or publicity come along I’ll be sure to post them here.
Take a look at what happens when someone with a fair bit of time to kill and a shiny new Photoshop installation gets cracking on switching the faces around on the cast of Friends:
Yikes! Phoebe-Ross is especially scary.
What if Modern Family wasn’t the light-hearted comedy that we know and love? What if it was actually… a horror movie? dun dun dun
Trevorama took it upon himself to recut the Emmy Award-winning hit show as a 5 minute extended trailer in the form of a horror flick, with the obvious psycho being the gifted Alex Dunphy. It’s always the gifted kids, isn’t it? And yet… I turned out fine ;).
Take a look:
Impressive what a bit of an edit and some mood music can do, right?
Seen on: BuzzFeed
No real long drawn out point to this post – just Barney Stinson being awesome. Figured it’d cheer those of you still working this late in December up a bit.

Thanks to gevaaalik.com for bringing this GIF to my attention.
HBO recently posted a teaser clip of the upcoming season 2 of Game of Thrones: Cold Winds.
Take a look:
Do ya wanna know what I’m looking forward to the most about the new season? Nothing – I haven’t seen season 1 yet, although I hear it’s really rather good. Better mosey on over to Amazon to rustle up a copy and check it out. I hear it’s full of swords, duelling, and most importantly, boobs. Win, win and win (obviously) in my book.
Any thoughts? Good? Shite? Meh?
