    Jon Snow Beyond the Wall

    • The final season of "Game of Thrones" may be the shortest yet at just six total episodes, but star Kit Harington says filming the season was incredibly grueling. 
    • "Everyone was broken at the end," Harington told GQ Australia. "I don't know if we were crying because we were sad it was ending or if we were crying because it was so f------ tiring. We were sleep deprived."
    • Production for this season took longer than any other thanks to the epic scale of the plot. 
    • The eighth and final season of "Game of Thrones" premieres this April.

    Ten years have passed since Kit Harington first auditioned for the role of Jon Snow on HBO's mega-hit series "Game of Thrones." As the final season approaches, Harington is now ready to move on from the grueling filming schedule of the series that felt "designed to break" the cast.

    "Everyone was broken at the end," Harington said in a new interview with GQ Australia. "I don't know if we were crying because we were sad it was ending or if we were crying because it was so f------ tiring. We were sleep deprived."

    Though the final season will only be six total episodes (as opposed to the usual 10), those episodes are reportedly going to each run over 60 minutes. The shooting time for this season, between filming and post-production, was the series' longest ever.

    "I remember everyone walking around towards the end going, 'I've had enough now. I love this, it's been the best thing in my life, I'll miss it one day – but I'm done,'" Harington told GQ Australia.

    Harington's exhaustion could be partially due to the intense battle scene filmed over multiple months. After early reporting said this battle took 55 days to shoot, Entertainment Weekly's James Hibberd revealed that the 55 days were just for outdoor night shoots

    "Filming then moved into the studio, where [director Miguel Sapochnik] continued shooting the same battle for weeks after that," Entertainment Weekly reported.

    According to the GQ Australia profile, Harington shared his last day on set with the main crew and cast, but then returned for one more scene that involved "a bit of green-screening," as GQ's Tom Lamont puts it. This could mean anything, but it's worth noting that Emilia Clarke films her scenes of Daenerys flying on Drogon with a green screen backdrop. 

    Harington was 22 years old when he first auditioned for "Game of Thrones" (while sporting a black eye) and now he's 32 and married to his co-star Rose Leslie, who played Jon Snow's wildling love Ygritte.

    The eighth and final season of the series premieres sometime this April. Though HBO hasn't released an official trailer for the season yet, we did get our first peek of footage in a new 2019 teaser for the network. While we wait for more, you can read our predictions for what will happen on these last six episodes here.

    rami malek nicole kidman golden globes

    • Rami Malek appeared on ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" on Tuesday and talked about his viral moment with Nicole Kidman during the 76th Golden Globes.
    • While onstage accepting the award for best drama motion picture for "Bohemian Rhapsody," the actor had a brief interaction with Kidman, who was presenting and didn't seem to realize that Malek was trying to get her attention.
    • "I've known her for many years, despite as it may seem from that video," Malek told Kimmel. "I thought I could easily go up and say hi, but in a moment like that, it was very awkward. I have a feeling this is probably haunting me on the internet."

    Rami Malek shared his thoughts on his viral moment with Nicole Kidman at the 76th Golden Globes.

    During the award show on Sunday night, Malek and the cast and crew of "Bohemian Rhapsody" went onstage to accept the Golden Globe for best drama motion picture. Malek portrayed Queen front man Freddie Mercury in the biopic.

    While navigating through the people on stage, Malek had a brief interaction with Kidman, who presented the award. Fans couldn't get enough of the quick exchange, in which Kidman seemed oblivious to the 37-year-old trying to get her attention.

    "I had not seen that," Malek said, briefly covering his face, during an appearance on ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" on Tuesday. "I've known her for many years, despite as it may seem from that video."

    "I thought I could easily go up and say hi, but in a moment like that, it was very awkward," the "Mr. Robot" star said. "I have a feeling this is probably haunting me on the internet."

    And even though Malek didn't get to properly speak to the "Aquaman" star, he said that he got love from Kidman's husband, Keith Urban, who's a "massive Queen fan."

    • "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" is returning for its sixth season.
    • The show has featured a number of guest stars so far. 
    • Actors including Pete Davidson and Eva Longoria have appeared.

    "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" features a large cast of lovable and wacky characters.

    And between criminals, family members of the Nine-Nine's employee, and fellow public service members, there are plenty of opportunities to add colorful guest stars into the mix.

    Celebrities, such as Maya Rudolph and Nick Offerman, have been on the show. 

    Fox canceled "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" in 2018, but NBC saved it less than 24 hours later, so now there's even more opportunity for cameos.

    "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" returns Thursday at 9 p.m. ET on NBC.

    Patton Oswalt joined the cast as FDNY Fire Marshal Boone for two episodes on season one.

    He refuses to let Jake and Charles visit a crime scene when their favorite pizza place burns down. He returns a few episodes later for a football game between FDNY and the Nine-Nine.



    Jake met Katie Peralta, his half-sister played by Nasim Pedrad, on season five.

    She's good at conning people. 



    Niecy Nash guest-starred on season three as Debbie, Holt's younger sister.

    Jamie Campbell Bower Crimes of Grindelwald premiere Getty Images

    • HBO recently announced a group of new actors joining the pilot of the first "Game of Thrones" prequel show.
    • Jamie Campbell Bower is one of the stars, but this isn't his first go-around with "Game of Thrones."
    • Bower played Ser Waymar Royce for the first version of the pilot episode (which never aired).
    • By the time HBO needed to re-shoot the pilot, he had another gig and couldn't return. 
    • Now Bower has rejoined the "Game of Thrones" family for this potential prequel.

    In the summer of 2010, "Game of Thrones" showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss were on their second attempt at filming a pilot episode for HBO's newest series. This meant recasting and re-shooting a large portion of the episode. One of the actors who was unfortunately left on the cutting room floor was Jamie Campbell Bower, who recently reprised his role as Young Gellert Grindelwald in "Fantastic Beasts: Crimes of Grindelwald."

    But nearly 10 years ago, Bower played Ser Waymar Royce — the Night's Watch ranger in charge of the mission that goes deadly wrong during the cold open of the series' very first episode.

    In a blog post from that summer, author George R.R. Martin says Bower had signed onto a Starz series, "Camelot," by the time HBO was doing reshoots.

    "Unfortunately, Jamie's shooting schedule with 'Camelot' conflicted with our own, so there was no way he could come back and reprise his performance as Ser Waymar," Martin wrote. "But we wish him luck with his new (much larger) role ... and who knows, if 'Game of Thrones' should happen to have a longer run than 'Camelot,' maybe one day he can come back and play another (much larger) role for us."

    Ser Waymar Royce Game of Thrones pilot episode season one

    Perhaps, all these years later, Martin's blog post has come true. "Camelot" did indeed end after just one season on Starz, and now Bower will have a role on HBO's first (currently untitled) "Game of Thrones" prequel show. For now, the network has only ordered a pilot episode to be filmed, not an entire series. But it's shaping up to be a very interesting premise. 

    Read more:The first 'Game of Thrones' prequel show is moving forward at HBO — here's what you need to know

    "Taking place thousands of years before the events of 'Game of Thrones,' the series chronicles the world’s descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour," HBO's official description of the series says. "From the horrifying secrets of Westeros’s history to the true origin of the White Walkers, the mysteries of the East to the Starks of legend, only one thing is for sure: It’s not the story we think we know."

    Night King Game of Thrones season seven

    So far we don't know anything about the characters the newly announced cast will play, with the exception of Naomi Watts' role as "a charismatic socialite hiding a dark secret."If the prequel does brush up against the White Walkers, then it's possible Bower's role will be something of a full circle to his unseen portrayal of Ser Waymar. 

    Read more:These 8 'Game of Thrones' characters were recast — and you probably didn't even notice

    On the cold open of the pilot, Ser Waymar and his Night's Watch brothers are attacked by wildlings. Waymar is the first to die in both the scene and the entire series. His role is also a big part of the audience's introduction to the threat the White Walkers pose to the realm of Westeros. 

    Actor Rob Ostlere took over the part of Ser Waymar for the version of the pilot that eventually made it to air. Some pieces of the original footage was salvaged, but the bulk of that very first version of the episode was, according to Benioff and Weiss and their close friends, a "massive problem." HBO gave them the greenlight for a first season anyways, and the duo set to work rewriting and re-shooting. The rest is Westeros history. 

    "Game of Thrones" will air its eighth and final season beginning this April. Fans will have to wait and see how the prequel pilot goes and whether or not HBO picks it (or any of the other four spinoff ideas) up for a full series.

    Joe You

    • Scenes in Mooney's bookstore in the thriller series "You" are filmed in an actual book store in New York City.
    • Peach Salinger's name is meant to sound annoying, according to the author of the book the series is based on.
    • Certain "You" filming locations, like the Greenpoint Avenue subway station and the Staten Island Ferry, are fictionalized versions of real locations.

    Warning: Spoilers ahead for "You."

    By now, you've likely heard about — or watched, or become wholly obsessed with — "You," a thrilling Lifetime-turned-Netflix series featuring Penn Badgley, Elizabeth Lail of "Once Upon a Time,"Shay Mitchell, and John Stamos.

    The show centers on a bookstore manager, Joe Goldberg (Badgley), who meets a woman named Guinevere Beck (Lail) in his shop. Joe develops an obsession with Beck and begins to stalk her in full force. He memorizes her schedule, sneaks into her apartment, and kidnaps her on-again, off-again, aspiring-artisanal-soda-creator boyfriend.

    And that's just the first episode. With a premise like that, you know "You" has to have some fun behind-the-scenes facts.

    Here are some surprising things you might not have known about "You."

    The book's author has written for some shows you've probably watched.

    The show is based on a book of the same name by Caroline Kepnes. "You" was Kepnes' first book, but according to her website, she's written for shows including "7th Heaven" and "The Secret Life of the American Teenager." Kepnes also wrote "You Got Me Babe," the eighth episode of "You."



    Penn Badgley didn't want to play Joe at first.

    At first, Badgley was reluctant to take on the role of Joe. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, he said he was "conflicted" about the part, largely because the show is framed as a love story. "If this is a love story, what is it saying?" he said.

    Ultimately, discussions with showrunners Sera Gamble and Greg Berlanti convinced Badgley the part and show had enough nuance to make it worth taking.

    The facade of the bookstore where Joe works is a real store.

    "You" used Logos Bookstore, a specialty bookstore on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, New York, as the exterior and front interior of Mooney's, according to Brick Underground. Although little was changed about the actual bookstore, Logos does not have a cage in its basement. The basement scenes in "You" were filmed on a separate set in the Bronx.

    Elizabeth Lail, who plays Beck, rose to fame after her role in ABC's "Once Upon a Time."

    Before "You," Elizabeth Lail was most known as Princess Anna on the adventure fantasy show "Once Upon a Time," but she's also starred in a movie that's equally as creepy as "You," called "Unintended."



    You may have seen Luca Padovan, who plays Paco, on the CW show "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend."

    dancing with the stars

    • "Dancing With the Stars" in the US is a spin-off of the UK's show "Strictly Come Dancing."
    • There have been several versions of the show made worldwide.
    • Judges, pros, and stars from the original have appeared on various adaptations.

    You may be familiar with the competition show format of celebrities pairing up with professional dancers to compete for a prize. What you may not know is this format has been replicated all over the world. 

    Here's what the show looks like in different countries.

    It all started in the UK with "Strictly Come Dancing."

    This was the original, modern-day celebrity dancing competition show. It's been airing since 2004 and has featured celebrities such as Spice Girl Emma Bunton and singer Pixie Lott. Original judge Bruno Tonioli now also judges on the US version "Dancing With the Stars."



    The US has "Dancing With the Stars."

    Since "Dancing With the Stars" premiered in the US on June 1, 2005, the show has crowned 26 champions (or 27 if you count that weird season one dance-off), revived several celebrity careers, and propelled pro dancers to stardom.



    Isreal's show is called "Rokdim Im Kokhavim."

    Israel's "Rokdim Im Kokhavim" began in 2005 and ended in 2012. It was groundbreaking during its seven seasons. It featured the first same-sex pairing with sports presenter Gili Shem Tov and professional dancer Dorit Milman and a controversial vote to reinstate eliminated contestants.

    lindsay lohan

    • Lindsay Lohan's new reality TV show, "Lindsay Lohan's Beach Club" has a vaguely recognizable theme song. 
    • The track is called "Bossy," and it was released by Lohan in 2008.
    • Considering that Lohan is a boss on her MTV series, the song is fitting. 

     

    The theme song for Lindsay Lohan's new reality TV show is actually a track that she released years ago and you probably didn't even realize it.  

    If you saw the commercials for "Lindsay Lohan's Beach Club" or tuned in to the premiere episode on Tuesday, the short theme song might have sounded vaguely familiar to fans who followed Lohan's career as a singer.

    The track is called "Bossy," and Lohan dropped it in 2008. The pop song is filled with attitude, with Lohan proclaiming that she likes things done her way. It also peaked at No. 1 on Billboard's Dance Club Songs chart. 

    Read more:Lindsay Lohan reacts to the viral video of her dancing: 'It's so embarrassing to me now'

    Considering the message of "Bossy," it's unsurprising that the "Parent Trap" star resurrected it for her reality series, where she manages a group of hosts, servers, and bartenders (collectively called "ambassadors") at a beach club that she established in Mykonos, Greece. On the show, Lohan also describes herself as a "boss b----." 

    As a refresher, you can watch the video for "Bossy," which was written by Ne-Yo, below.

    Warning: The video is NSFW.

    "Bossy" followed the success of Lohan's previously released albums, "Speak" (her debut album that came out in 2004 and included the edgy song "Rumors") and "A Little More Personal (Raw)," which was released in 2005. She also lent her voice to tracks that were featured in popular teen movies, like "Freaky Friday,""Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen," and "The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement."Lohan is also featured in Duran Duran's 2015 song "Danceophobia."

    Even though Lohan is focusing her energy on "Lindsay Lohan's Beach Club," she's not opposed to returning to music. 

    "My sister [Aliana] is coming out with her record and I want to support her in that," Lohan told Billboard in an interview published this week."We've talked about writing together and maybe doing something together if we have season two, or just in general."

    keeping up with the kardashians

    • We have been "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" for 15 seasons.
    • Some moments have been upsetting and jaw-dropping.
    • The family always stays together and supports each other.

    Over the 15 seasons that "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" has aired on E!, the famous reality family has aired out all their dirty laundry — the good, the bad, and the utterly jaw-dropping. From Kim Kardashian's robbery to Caitlyn Jenner's transition, the Kardashian-Jenner family has shared it all, and some moments from the series have been so dramatic they're impossible to forget.

    Read on for the most shocking and heartbreaking moments from "KUWTK."

    Kim lost Kourtney's nude photos.

    During the first season of "KUWTK,"Kourtney's nude photos leaked after Kim stole them and put them in her purse as a prank. Her purse was stolen, and when Kim realized that meant her pictures could leak, she panicked. The family called in the FBI for help since Kourtney was underage when the photos were taken, and in the end, they never surfaced.



    Khloe was arrested on charges of driving under the influence.

    Khloe supposedly reenacted her arrest outside of a club in 2007 for the "KUWTK" cameras, according to the book "Kardashian Dynasty." The show also followed Khloe the morning she went to jail after violating probation, including the famous scene when Kris told Kim to stop taking selfies in the car because "your sister's going to jail."



    The sisters got into a spat early on, and Kim hit Khloe with her purse.

    On what is remembered as one of the most iconic episodes in the second season of the show, Kim hit Khloe with her purse and says the line "don't be f------ rude"after an argument involving a Bentley.

    dr sandra lee dr pimple popper

    • "Dr. Pimple Popper"— the TLC show starring dermatologist Dr. Sandra Lee — has returned for a second season. 
    • The second episode featured a woman with hundreds of seborrheic keratoses, common skin growths that are sometimes called "barnacles of aging."
    • Lee removed the growths with a freezing procedure known to be deeply painful.
    • The patient, Pat, withstood the removal of more than 300 spots — something Lee said she'd never seen in her career. 

     

    After a months-long hiatus, Dr. Pimple Popper is finally back on TV.  The beloved YouTuber and dermatologist (real name: Dr. Sandra Lee) returned to TLC for the second season of her TV series, also titled "Dr. Pimple Popper."

    The season's second episode, which aired Thursday night, showcased one woman with extraordinary tolerance for pain during a procedure to remove common skin growths.

    Here's a closer look at her case.

    Pat sought Dr. Lee's help for "rapidly spreading moles"

    dr pimple popper tlc pat 2

    In an interview segment, Pat, 66, said she was seeking Lee's expert opinion on what seemed to be "rapidly growing moles."

    The dark brown spots first started appearing when Pat was in her mid-20s, but later spread across her neck, temples, chest, and abdomen. They also itched, stung, and got caught on her clothes.

    "During the three last years, they've spread very rapidly, and that's a concern for me," Pat said. "My dad who passed away, he had skin cancer, so always at the back of my mind is the thought of skin cancer. I'd just like to know what is causing these moles."

    But the moles were actually growths known as seborrheic keratoses

    dr pimple popper tlc pat

    In the exam room, Lee told Pat that her "moles" weren't really moles at all. They were a type of growth called sebhorreic keratoses (singular: seborrheic keratosis).

    These common spots may seem like warts or skin cancer, but they're completely harmless, according to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD). It's still not clear why they occur, but seborrheic keratoses seem to run in families. And because most people get them when they're middle-aged or older, they're sometimes referred to as "barnacles of aging," according to the AAD. 

    Most people develop many seborrheic keratoses, rather than just one. Pat happened to have hundreds. 

    "Pat has so many of these seborrheic keratoses, it's almost as if she has more of them than she has regular skin," Lee said.

    Lee then offered to remove some of Pat's keratoses using cryotherapy. In this procedure, a dermatologist applies extremely cold liquid nitrogen to a seborrheic keratosis, and later, the growth falls off. Though it's possible for new ones to grow elsewhere on the body, removed keratoses typically don't come back, according to the AAD. 

    The only catch? It's famously painful. 

    "Liquid nitrogen treatment can be pretty painful," Lee said. "It is so cold that it burns. I know, myself, I could probably only tolerate three or four [sebhorreic keraotses] removed at one time ... The number of these that I can remove is very dependent on her pain threshold."

    Pat withstood the pain as Lee removed 307 spots

    dr pimple popper tlc keratoses

    As the procedure began, Lee told Pat she should "cry uncle" if she needed a break.

    But the pain of cryotherapy was no match for Pat's pain threshold. Her face hardly flinched as Lee went through canister after canister of liquid nitrogen, freezing off a staggering total of 307 seborrheic keratoses. 

    "In my whole career, I've never had anybody withstand me treating more than 40 or 50 of these seborrheic keratoses," Lee said. "I don't think I've ever had a patient with the pain tolerance that Pat has. A lot of patients can't tolerate this procedure."

    In an interview segment filmed after the procedure, Pat said that mental tactics helped her persevere. 

    "I was practicing relaxing and I did the mind over matter thing," she said. "I was comparing that pain to other pain that I've experienced. I had migraines until I was in my 50s. So that's how I was able to get through."

    And the pain was likely worth it: Lee explained that, after a healing period, Pat's once-bumpy, itchy skin would finally smooth out. 

    "These areas will darken and kind of scale up, maybe even blister," she said. "They peel off over the next couple weeks, and then the skin is going to look gorgeous and nice and smooth and clear."

    the best OLED tv

    • The LG C8 is the best OLED TV you can buy because it shows off how powerful OLED technology is with excellent black levels, an attractive design, and a slew of features.

    OLED TVs have been very popular among home theater enthusiasts for the past few years, and the continually dropping price point of this premium product means there's never been a better time to invest in one. If you want the best streaming, gaming, and movie watching experience, there's no substitute for an OLED TV.

    OLED stands for "organic light emitting diode," and while that just seems like technical jargon, it has serious implications for your TV watching experience. Instead of using a traditional backlight, OLED screens use a carbon-based film between two conductors that creates light when an electric current passes through. That means when there's black in an image, the TV won't display light at all, making for the highest dynamic range of any TV technology.

    Like any high-end technology, though, there's a lot of confusion surrounding what you should buy. LG, Samsung, and Sony each have their own marketing lingo, which makes it difficult to know if you're even buying an OLED in the first place.

    We've scoured the internet and tested some of the premium options on the market so you can find the best OLED TV in our buying guide

    Here are the best OLED TVs you can buy:

    Read on in the slides below to check out our top picks.

    The best OLED TV overall

    Why you'll love it: With a reasonable price tag and excellent image processing, the LG C8 is the best bang for your buck in the OLED TV market.

    Based on buyer reviews, commentary by experts online, and my own hands-on testing, the LG C8 is where you should look first if you want to invest in an OLED TV. It includes the best features from LG's TV line while maintaining a reasonable price tag. As the mid-tier option in LG's line-up, it's also the centerpiece of most sales.

    OLED TVs also rely on processing power, and the C8 is no slouch in this regard. It uses the a9 processor, which is the same processor used in LG's super expensive W8 series of TVs. The processor provides the C8 TV with the best color accessory and sharpness. LG's C8 even earned an "excellent" rating from Consumer Reports for its picture quality.

    The C8 also supports HDR content which, unlike with many cheaper TVs, isn't just a flat marketing point. The TV supports HDR10, Dolby Vision, HLG, and Advanced HDR by Technicolor, meaning you can take advantage of just about any HDR content that's available. It's great future proofing, as HDR content is ever growing.

    When dropping this kind of money on a TV, though, none of that should come as a surprise. The C8 may differentiate itself with excellent image quality, but the ThinQ AI is what sets it apart from the pack. It integrates with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa, so you can watch anything just by yelling at your digital assistant from across the room.

    Furthermore, the C8 comes with Gallery Mode, which will cycle paintings and photographs across the screen to avoid the dreaded OLED burn-in. It's also got Dolby Atmos support and access to nearly every streaming platform available — though HBO is oddly omitted.

    Pros: Excellent image quality, ThinQ AI, relatively inexpensive

    Cons: No HBO support

    Buy the LG C8 55-inch OLED TV on Amazon for $1,897 (originally $1,996.99)



    The best OLED TV for less than $1,600

    Why you'll love it: LG cut some corners to bring the B8 to a lower price point, and while it's not as good as our top pick, it gets damn close for about $300 less.

    The LG B8 is mostly the same TV as the C8. Like its more expensive sibling, it uses LG's WebOS, supports a range of HDR content, and comes with the same integration with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa. The only thing that's different is the image processor.

    It uses the now dated a7 processor, which LG only uses in this TV. While it would be great to say there isn't a difference between this processor and LG's flagship one, there is. The higher-end a9 processor helps bring colors to life more and bumps up the sharpness, but only by a thin margin.

    In a side-by-side comparison with other LG OLEDs, the a9 processor reigns supreme. However, when put against competitors, the a7 still shines. The difference between the two is really splitting hairs. The a7 processor helps the B8 beat out TVs that are double its price.

    Believe it or not, the largest difference between the B8 and C8 is the stand. LG opted for the narrow, angled stand seen on 2017's C7 instead of the wider, curved version seen on the C8. When put on a wall, though, the B8 and C8 look identical.  

    Pros: Cheapest true OLED TV on the market, Google Assistant integration

    Cons: Older image processor, no HBO support

    Buy the LG B8 OLED TV on Amazon for $1,597 (originally $1,796.99)



    The best high-end OLED TV

    Why you'll love it: Sony may not have the chops to compete with LG's inexpensive OLEDs, but it pulls ahead in a high-end market with the excellent app support and truly impressive audio quality of the A9F Master Series TV.

    Sony TVs have always had one word associated with them: expensive. The A9F Master Series is no exception to that, touting a price tag that's around $1,200 more than LG's competing top-tier OLED TV. Even so, Sony justifies the price with a unique spin on built-in audio and a wide range of applications.

    TV speakers are notoriously bad, but you should listen to the A9F before blowing money on a speaker system. Sony essentially turned the TV into a soundbar, utilizing the surface area of the panel to distribute sound throughout the room. It's called "Acoustic Surface Audio+," and it's impressive.

    There are six actuators behind the panel that pour sound into the room, with two dedicated woofers handling the bass. It sounds so good that I recommend using the A9F as a center speaker while connecting other bookshelf speakers for a surround setup, which Sony, thankfully, supports.

    You're paying for that tech, mostly. The image quality is about on par with LG's mid-tier OLED TVs, despite Sony's new X1 Ultimate image processor. The colors and sharpness are mostly the same, though Sony falls behind LG when fast-paced action is on screen.

    Movie watchers will be fine with either TV, but gamers should seriously look twice at the A9F. It makes a perfect pairing with the PS4 Pro, handling the detailed and chaotic graphics of AAA games with grace. The PS4 Pro supports 4K HDR gaming, too, which the A9F can handle.

    Pros: Excellent audio quality, wide app selection, great gaming experience

    Cons: Expensive, not the best movie watching experience

    Buy the Sony A9F Master Series OLED TV on Amazon for $4,498

    you on lifetime joe penn

    • Netflix has renewed the thriller "You" for a season two but there's still no release date.
    • Season two won't exactly follow the second book in the "You" series, "Hidden Bodies."
    • The second season of "You" will take place in Los Angeles and some people from Joe's past might return. 

    Warning: Major spoilers ahead. 

    It might seem like Joe Goldberg got away with his crimes on the first season of "You," but the story isn't over yet. A second season of the psychological thriller series is in the works at Netflix, which means Joe's past likely won't stay buried.

    The series, which is based on the book of the same name by Caroline Kepnes, follows New York bookstore manager Joe (Penn Badgley) through his obsessive pursuit of Beck (Elizabeth Lail), an aspiring writer. By the end of the first season, Joe's obsession with Beck has turned deadly. Although he appears to have successfully gotten away with multiple murders and crimes, his past is sure to haunt him in season two.

    The second season (partially based on Kepnes' follow up novel "Hidden Bodies") promises to delve deeper into Joe's twisted mind as his relentless quest for love "ventures into riskier, bolder territory."

    Here's everything we know so far about "You" season two so far.

    The second season will be set in Los Angeles

    You beck and joe moving

    After pinning Beck's murder on her therapist Dr. Nicky (John Stamos), Joe will be moving to a new state. Series co-creator Sera Gamble revealed that the move to LA will likely be an adjustment for Joe, who prefers to keep a low profile.

    "One problem that Joe might face coming to Los Angeles is that you can't walk down the goddamn street without someone posing against a selfie wall for their Instagram," Gamble told TV Guide after the season finale aired in November. "You can't go to a party without ending up on someone's [Instagram] stories. If you want to lay low, if you want to stay out of trouble, if you're trying not to be known Los Angeles is the wrong place to live."

    The new season won't completely follow the plot of "Hidden Bodies"beck you

    There's no need to worry about spoiling the show's second season if you've read, or are planning to read, "Hidden Bodies." Season two won't stay completely true to its source material, so fans of the book series can expect new twists when they tune in.

    "We are planning to diverge a little bit more from the second book than we did from the first, which was a very tight examination of this one relationship. But in order to tell that story for TV, we made some changes along the way — and every time a butterfly flaps its wings in season one, by season two there's a tsunami," Gamble told Vulture.

    The jump from Lifetime to Netflix doesn't change anything the writers had planned for season two

    beck joe reading in bet you

    Lifetime originally picked up the series for two seasons before "You" even premiered in the US, but the network decided not to move forward with the show's second season. Netflix, which was already airing the series internationally, swooped in to save the day and acquired the series for season two.

    None of this makes any major difference to viewers with the exception of where they can watch the show. In December, Gamble told Vulture the show would "stay fundamentally the same," adding that it won't become "some crazy free-for-all" after moving to Netflix.

    Season two will take viewers deeper into Joe's mind

    Joe YouJoe Goldberg is one of the most disturbingly sympathetic serial killers on television and season two will take a closer look at what makes him tick.

    Gamble told TV Guide that the second season will be a "deeper dive into Joe" and examine "why he looks at the world as he does, what he's able to be honest with himself about and the lengths he'll go to in the name of preserving an idea about himself that might be, well, just slightly rooted in denial."

    Joe's ex-girlfriend Candace will shake things up

    candace you

    The first season ends with the surprise revelation that Joe's ex-girlfriend Candace (Ambyr Childers) is actually alive. Throughout the season, viewers are led to believe that Joe murdered her, but in a last-minute twist she shows up alive and confronts him about their "unfinished business."

    "Candace does indeed have a role in season two. I can say she’s not feeling particularly disposed to be nice to Joe.  Joe wasn’t very nice to her, and she’s not feeling all that charitably toward Joe," Gamble told Vulture.

    Joe's other victims might return

    you peachJoe racked up quite the body count, but that doesn't necessarily mean his victims won't appear in season two. Candace appeared in flashbacks and hallucinations through most of the first season before it was revealed she was still alive and Gamble has hinted that Joe's other victims, such as Peach Salinger (Shay Mitchell), might return as haunting reminders of what he's done.

    "Part of the fun of continuing the story is that the loose ends from Joe's past are still dangling and could come back to him at any time," she told The Hollywood Reporter. "He is very worried about the fact that Peach Salinger's family has hired people to investigate her alleged suicide, and there is evidence potentially still at her house from season one."

    Gamble is, of course, referring to the jar full of pee that Joe left at Peach's family home in Connecticut, which could tie him to her death. As for other loose ends, Gamble also hinted at the possible return of Dr. Nicky, who Joe framed for Beck's murder.

    "It's too soon to say definitely whether John Stamos will return in season two but we have been talking a lot about the character and we're excited to keep telling that story," she said.

    There's no word on when season two will be released

    Netflix has yet to announce the release date for the show's second season.

    To all the boys i've loved before Noah Centineo Lana Condor netflix

    • Lana Condor appeared on NBC's "Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" on Thursday and said she "felt something" for "To All the Boys I've Loved Before" costar Noah Centineo.
    • The actress said she developed feelings prior to filming the movie when they attended a hot yoga class together, went to his apartment afterward, and ordered pizza.
    • Condor made it clear to Centineo that nothing was going to happen between them, and they made a pact (similar to their characters in the movie).
    • "I felt that for the show to do well, we had to be best-friend professionals," the actress told Fallon.

    Lana Condor had a crush on "To All the Boys I've Loved Before" costar Noah Centineo, but they decided to stick to a professional relationship.

    The actress appeared on NBC's "Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" on Thursday and said she and Centineo, whose roles as Lara Jean Covey and Peter Kavinsky propelled them to fame, made an agreement before filming the hit Netflix movie.

    Condor said she "felt something" when she and Centineo went to a hot yoga class and ordered pizza at his apartment afterward. Rather than act on her feelings, she said to him, "Noah, it's not going to happen between us."

    "I felt that for the show to do well, we had to be best-friend professionals," Condor, who's also starring on Syfy's new series "Deadly Class," told Fallon.

    After the two agreed that nothing was going to happen between them, they made a pact — just like their characters did.

    "We kind of made a contract and set boundaries," Condor said. "I'm so happy we did that because the movie turned out great and now we're doing a sequel."

    She added that they "still have the spark." And with a sequel confirmed by Netflix, viewers will continue to see the pair's chemistry through their roles.

    Since the movie was released on Netflix in August, fans (including Fallon) have been rallying for Condor and Centineo to become a real-life couple. While Centineo is single, Condor is not. She's been dating fellow actor Anthony De La Torre for a few years and the couple recently attended pre- and post-Golden Globes parties together.

    Joe You

    • "You" is a thriller that follows 20-something-year-old stalker, Joe Goldberg, and his obsession over a young woman named Guinevere Beck.
    • The show was picked up by Netflix and has been gaining popularity quickly.
    • Joe is eerie and dangerous, but fans are still attracted to him despite his creepy behavior.
    • The actor who plays Joe, Penn Badgley, has called attention to some of Joe's major flaws. 
    • This post contains slight spoilers for the series.

    Lifetime's eerie new thriller "You" recently began streaming on Netflix. With a star-studded cast featuring names like Shay Mitchell and Penn Badgley, it's almost too coincidental that the show's been described by some up as a mashup of "Pretty Little Liars" and "Gossip Girl."

    Badgley's character, Joe Goldberg, commits a lot of crimes and engages in dangerous stalker behavior. He even goes as far as to commit murder. 

    Despite the issues with Joe Goldberg, viewers are quickly falling for Badgley's character on "You."  And the actor has taken to Twitter to call out some major issues with Joe's character.

    Badgley would like to point out anyone fawning over Joe really shouldn't be

    On Wednesday, the actor responded to Tweets written by fans romanticizing his character on "You," to set the record straight: At the end of the day, Joe is a murderer with "a whole lot of problems."

    "In the beginning, I was not interested in making Joe human. I was like, 'This dude’s a murderer. I don’t think we need to be humanizing murderers anymore,'" he told HuffPost last year.

    In an interview with Daily Beast, he said that during filming he was "always kind of on the sidelines like, we don’t need to defend Joe. We don’t need to defend Joe."

    He's also expressed repulsion of his character in an interview with Collider. 

    "I feel that people are somehow responding to this show in a way that surprises me,"Badgley told the publication."I’ve been really repulsed by certain parts of Joe, and it’s weird to play somebody that you actually feel that way about. It’s a challenge."

    But his persona isn't so black and white, and that seems to be what is making fans so conflicted.

    Joe's relationship with Paco, the boy next door whose mother is a drug addict in an abusive relationship, gives him depth. And his actions, while terrible and criminal, are motivated by Joe's skewed perceptions of love. The show makes a point to show that despite a part of him that's monstrous, he's human.

    All in all, Badgley is hoping to draw attention to the "problematic" dimensions of the show.

    After responding to a few tweets, the actor acknowledged that he's trying to draw attention to the "problematic" dimensions of the show.

    "Let’s say, theoretically, this show isn’t any good. If people are able to have conversations like this around it, that’s good," Badgley told HuffPost prior to the series' release

    This isn't the first time Badgley's brought up how he hopes this show can open up a conversation

    You beck and joe creeping bookstore

    "Even though it’s a fictional story, it somehow seems to contain something very real and very true," Badgley told Collider about "You.""More than anything I’ve ever been a part of, as a project, I feel like it creates a conversation, just for itself."

    He has said he hopes the series draws attention to what love is and what love isn't. And he's glad that "these kinds types of conversations can be had." 

    "I just think it's exciting to be a part of something that can generate these types of questions, rather than just going, 'That was nice. What do you want to do next?'" he told Collider.

    joe you smile bookstore

    • The Lifetime show "You" premiered in 2018, and was recently picked up by Netflix.
    • There are a number of pop culture references throughout the series, especially when it comes to books.
    • Stephen King and Owen King's book, "Sleeping Beauties," is featured at Joe's bookstore, and asks the question of what would happen if women disappeared from the world.

    Ever since the Lifetime show "You" was picked up by Netflix, people can't get enough of it. It has suspense, plot twists, and large number of pop culture references that often pertain to the plotline or Joe's character specifically.

    So before season two airs, take a look at some of the literary and pop culture references scattered throughout "You" and how they add to the series.

    Warning: This post contains spoilers.

    Joe highly recommends Beck read the 1970 novel "Desperate Characters" by Paula Fox.

    When Beck first comes into Joe's bookstore, she's looking at a Paula Fox novel, to which Joe recommends she read "Desperate Characters." Beck says she's worried it won't live up to the hype but ends up buying it anyway.

    "Desperate Characters" tells the story of a couple, Sophie and Otto, living in Brooklyn: After Sophie is bitten trying to feed a stray, a series of small disasters begin striking the couple, revealing the rifts in a marriage and society crumbling to pieces.

    The book is later on her coffee table during a scene where she's with Benji and Benji asks about the book. 

     



    Peach Salinger is a distant cousin of J.D. Salinger.

    J.D. Salinger is most known for "Catcher in the Rye," as well as "Franny and Zooey."



    A rude customer can be seen buying "Franny and Zooey" in episode one.

    A rude customer can be seen buying "Franny and Zooey" from the bookstore in the first episode."He's just pissed he has to buy Salinger to feel respectable," Joe's internal monologue says over the scene. 

    His rudeness might just allude to Joe's later impression of Peach, the author's fictional descendant in the show.

    You Netflix beck and peach

    • Netflix's "You" focuses on Joe Goldberg, a New York City book store manager who stalks a woman he meets at work.
    • That woman is Guinevere Beck, a graduate writing student struggling to find her place in her field.
    • The show also stars Shay Mitchell in the role of Peach Salinger, a distant relative of J.D. Salinger.

    Netflix fans have quickly become obsessed with the streaming service's newly added series "You." Although it originally premiered on Lifetime last fall, the network passed on a season two and Netflix picked the series up for a second season. The show takes place in New York City and follows a stalker as he stops at nothing to get the girl of his dreams.

    Each character on "You" is complex and different, making it relatable to a wide range of people. From those addicted to internet culture to those who have big writing dreams, the handful of characters are nothing short of entertaining and unique.

    If you're just starting "You" or plan to do so soon, here's a spoiler-free breakdown of every major character on the show.  

    Joe Goldberg is the leading man.

    The main character on "You" is Joe Goldberg (Penn Badgley), a book-loving, book store clerk in New York City who finds himself suddenly obsessed with a recent customer. He is the narrator of the story which is told, for the most part, from his first-person point of view. Joe is, undeniably, a stalker, which is the whole premise for the show. Although he is intelligent, Joe's dark side is present from the very first episode. 

     



    Guinevere Beck is an aspiring writer.

    The woman Joe instantly becomes obsessed with is Guinevere Beck (Elizabeth Lail): a graduate student with a love for literature and writing. At the start of the season, she's in a rough spot. She is in need of money, dating a not-so-great man and dealing with some clear personal issues. It seems like she's looking for a knight in shining armor, which is why Joe feels so comfortable swooping in.



    Paco is Joe's neighbor.

    Living next door to Joe is Paco (Luca Padovan), a young, impressionable boy who's dealing with living with his mother and her abusive boyfriend. Joe takes Paco under his wing, lending him books and words of wisdom when he can.

    john travolta diana hyland

    • When actors work closely together for months, whether it be on a movie or TV show, strong bonds are formed.
    • Sometimes, these relationships can turn romantic.
    • Here are six couples — or rumored couples — that played parents and children while working together.

    When working closely together for years or months at a time, some actors' relationships become more than professional — they get full-on romantic. Ultimately, when those loving feelings get sparked, it doesn't really matter the roles the two people are playing on screen ...

    Here are six instances in which actors playing parents and their children allegedly dated, definitely dated, or were even married.

    John Travolta dated his TV mom, Diana Hyland, until her death in 1977. The two met on the set of "The Boy in the Plastic Bubble."

    Hyland began dating Travolta, who was 18 years her junior, after they co-starred as mother and son in the TV movie "The Boy in the Plastic Bubble," which was based on the real stories of two kids born without functioning immune systems.

    The two were together when Hyland passed away from cancer at the age of 41. Travolta accepted her posthumously awarded Emmy for her work in "The Boy in the Plastic Bubble," and brought everyone to tears saying, "Wherever you are, Diana, I love you. You did it, baby."



    Colin Farrell and Angelina Jolie were rumored to be dating while they were filming "Alexander," in which Jolie played Farrell's mother.

    It's a little ridiculous that these two played mother and son— they're only 11 months apart. 

    The duo never confirmed their romance. Many blind items and rumors surrounded them for months during and after the filming of "Alexander," a dramatic retelling of the story of Macedonian general Alexander the Great.

     



    David Tennant met his future wife Georgia Moffett when she played the Doctor's daughter in "Doctor Who."

    Moffett's father in real life is Peter Moffett, a former "Doctor Who" star himself, better known as the fifth Doctor. Her father worked with Tennant on a 2008 episode during Tennant's stint as the Doctor, and encouraged his daughter to become a part of the historic sci-fi show.

    And so she did. Moffett appeared in a season four episode, aptly called "The Doctor's Daughter," where she played the cloned daughter of Tennant's Doctor, an alien who can travel through time and space. While they may not look it, the two are actually 14 years apart.

    After meeting on set, Tennant and Moffett were married in December 2011 and now have three kids together, plus Moffett's son Ty from a previous marriage, who Tennant adopted.
