Easy to recommend to fans of U2 — and you’ve probably already watched it if you are – but there’s a fantastic interview with Adam Clayton of U2 on the Irish television program The Works that covers the band’s influences, art, and staying relevant at 40 years as a band.
The 5th season of Game of Thrones is right around the corner. Here is an animated map that explains what happened in the last season and and where every character is right now.
Obviously this is heavy on the spoilers if you haven’t watched/read Game of Thrones.
Apparently they’re remaking Inspector Gadget and it’s coming to Netflix on March 27th:
Inspector Gadget is back and must face his old enemy, the evil Dr. Claw, who has reactivated M.A.D., his global crime syndicate.
Netflix is hitting that sweet spot of shows for parents (i.e. House of Cards) along with kids shows that those same parents will enjoy – or at least tolerate.
“If you give something away to 500 million people, I suppose at least three people are always going to complain,” he told the Diary.
There’s an interesting tidbit at the end of the article:
He (Jim Sheridan) is also in talks with American station HBO about making a small-screen version of his Oscar-nominated movie In America, telling the story of struggling Irish emigrants in New York.
In America (Rent/buy on iTunes) is one of my favorite movies. My love for all things Irish notwithstanding, it’s a beautiful film with a great cast including two real life sisters playing the little girls in the story.
An HBO series based on the story would be great.
It’s incredible how much of the world of Game of Thrones is built digitally. You kind of assume a lot of it is when you’re watching, but to see it broken down like this is amazing.
(If you’ve heard about the gore of Game of Thrones, there’s none to be seen in this video. Nor is there any real spoilers if you’ve never watched the show or read the books.)
They do film a lot of it on location around the world (Ireland, Croatia, Malta) which probably helps the actors as opposed to standing in front of a green screen.
Now when is season 5 going to be available?
