Game of Thrones Season 3 Premieres Tonight

The wait is over (for Americans, at least) and season 3 of George R. R. Martin’s hugely successful Game of Thrones series is premiering tonight.

Last year we saw events based on book two, A Clash of Kings and saw the Starks go to war against the Lannisters. Season 3, as you might already have heard will focus on half of A Storm of Swords after producers decided to break up the book over two seasons. We’re going to be reviewing each episode on Worlds Beyond so check back each week to see what we thought of each episode.

If you haven’t watched or read Game of Thrones yet (where have you been!?) you can get the collected bundle of all seven books to date or season 1 and season 2 of the TV show to help you catch up.

Looking forward to tonight’s episode? Who’s your favourite character? Answers in the comments.

More Arrested Development on the way

News that the show is returning isn’t really news… fans of Arrested Development have closely followed progress on a potential fourth season since the show last aired in 2006. What is news is that showrunner Mitch Hurwitz has made more episodes that were originally pitched for so if you’re a fan of Arrested Development, good news! 2013 should have seen 10 new episodes, but you will now get between 12 and 15!

Neil Patrick Harris’s Puppet Dreams

From the creators of The Muppets and leg… wait for it… endary light comedy actor Neil Patrick Harris comes Nerdist channel’s newest show, Neil’s Puppet Dreams.

Following Neil Patrick Harris as Neil, the show looks at his horrible medical condition – he can’t help but dream in muppet. Trust me, it’s funnier than it sounds.

Blood and Chrome – finale

This is it, the final segment of Blood and Chrome. We hope you’ve enjoyed it over the past five weeks and that you’ve liked reading our reviews as they’ve come out. Next Tuesday we’ll review the final episode and give a round up of the mini-series as a whole.

(PS. This should have gone up yesterday but we forgot to press ‘post’. Oops!)

Captain Planet is back – but not as you knew him

Remember 90’s cartoon Captain Planet and the Planeteers? Last year Funny or Die created a parody trailer/mini-film starring Don Cheedle to show what the series could be like in today’s day and age. It must have been a success because they’ve since commissioned more of the same.

(Caution, slightly NSFW due to some swearing)

It seems that years of watching humanity pollute the Earth, heedless to the Planeteers’ actions has warped Captain Planet’s sensibilities – something not improved in the subsequent parts.

Part three was released yesterday and part four will become available tomorrow.

What cartoons did you watch in your childhood? If someone were to remake them now, who would you cast for which characters?

Dragon Chasers

The BBC have really been pushing their Welsh fantasy and sci-fi departments over the past few years with Doctor Who, Being Human and Merlin getting prime time coverage. They also work to help promote new talent though and recently launched their Made in Wales mini-series. Each episode is a short film written and directed by Welsh creators (often young) then produced using BBC talent and resources.

One that caught my eye is “Dragon Chasers”.

A game of dungeons and dragons goes badly wrong when a group of misfits manage to bring a Celtic warrior back from the dead!
