The worlds of Humans, Doozers, Gorgs, and Fraggles will be returning to television in the here and now (and in a digitally remastered form). So dance your cares away and tune in for Fraggle Rock this winter, 2016 on HBO. Muppet creator Jim Henson described Fraggle Rock as “a small place just beyond everyday reality.” The show followed a race of characters known as the Fraggles who showed an enthusiasm for play, adventure and singing songs. The Fraggles’ world existed between that of the humans, a large race of creatures when compared in size to the Fraggles and the Gorgs, an even larger race of creatures. Only the Gorgs took any real notice of Fraggles.

HBO’s Game of Thrones season four will make its debut on April 6, 2014. With the look and the feel of this trailer, I wonder how they plan to top this season. But enough of the wondering, enjoy trailer three of Season four.


Fourteen Minutes of Game of Thrones’ Season Four

10 Feb

By James Robert Shaw (The Wind up Geek)

GameofThronesCan I say once again thank you to the series that is Game of Thrones. Thank you to the writers, to the crew, to the actors, to the author George R. R. Martin and to you, the viewer, for making its continuation possible.

It is because of programming like Game of Thrones that I am rescued from the dredges of Reality TV, shows that are supposed to entertain the viewer. Most Reality TV programs are just glorified infomercials. There has always been people who have found infomercials entertaining, but not this lad. Now and again there are bright spots in television programming like the aforementioned Game of Thrones that magnetically draws me back. And for one hour a week, I may be genuinely entertained.

In the recent Game of Thrones promo, viewers are given over 14 minutes of Q & A with the actors and a behind the scenes look at season four. During the Q & A, the joy of watching the actors answer questions put to them by fans is very rewarding. Although two of my favourite actors, Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister) and Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister), made appearances, I was saddened to see Jerome Flynn (Bronn) was unavailable.

But all will be made right when episode one of season four airs on April 6, 2014.
