If you were to ask a television critic what he, or she, felt was one of the most moving and deeply affecting shows on television, they would not likely be inclined to answer with the name of a show about an anthropomorphic, cartoon, alcoholic, depressed horse who used to star on a sitcom in the 1990s. And yet, BoJack Horseman continuously surprises critics and fans alike by proving to be one of Netflix’s best original series. Many included its season three episode, “Fish out of Water” on their list of 2016’s best television episodes, in fact. Below, the trailer for season four has finally released.

The cast of the show created by Raphael Bob-Waksberg is very talented and includes Will Arnett, of Arrested Development fame, Alison Brie, who starred in acclaimed shows like Community, GLOW, and Mad Men, Aaron Paul, who is best known for his turn as Jesse Pinkman on Breaking Bad, Amy Sedaris, a writer and actor in Elf, among other things, and Paul F. Tompkins, a regular on the Earwolf podcast network, appearing on such shows as Comedy Bang! Bang! and Spontaneanation. Many actors make guest appearances like Patton Oswalt, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Matthew Broderick, and Lisa Kudrow.

Explaining That Big Reveal on Game of Thrones

For years, readers of George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series have argued over one of the story’s biggest mysteries. That question was just answered on the season seven finale of Game of Thrones, “The Dragon and the Wolf,” but for those are not so well-versed in the lore of the books, the moment could have rendered them a bit confused. But no worries, that’s what articles like this one are for!

Obviously, there are spoilers ahead. Essentially, the show, through the combined knowledge of Bran Stark and Samwell Tarly confirmed that Jon Snow, one of the leads on the show, is not actually a bastard as his last name would indicate. Instead, he is the heir to the Iron Throne because of his parentage. For many years, Ned Stark kept Jon in the dark about the identity of his mother, but as revealed recently, the identity of Jon’s father was also secret, as many believed it to be Ned.

In fact, it was Rhaegar Targaryen, who, as it is now confirmed, fathered Jon Snow with Ned’s sister, Lyanna Stark. But while many thought that this child was born out of a kidnapping, in fact the opposite is true. Instead, Rhaegar and Lyanna genuinely loved each other and as Tarly said in the finale, they were able to marry each other before Jon Snow was born. Pretty major stuff on one of the most watched shows on television!

Of course, this has major implications for the future of the show. For one, this information was revealed to the audience right at the moment when Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen were making love for the very first time. Being that she is, in actuality, Jon’s aunt, this will certainly be an establishment for an awkward moment soon to be revealed in the future. Fortunately, in the fictional world of Westeros, this sort of thing happens all the time so maybe it will not be too uncomfortable for the pair.

If you were to ask one hundred different people what they believe the best television show ever made is, you would have a pretty good chance of receiving one hundred different answers. But if there was one show that had a decent shot at appearing on top multiple times, it just might be the multiple Emmy Award-winning AMC drama about advertising executives and copywriters in the 1960s, Mad Men. Created by Matthew Weiner and starring John Slattery, Christina Hendricks, Vincent Kartheiser, Elisabeth Moss, and Jon Hamm as Don Draper, Mad Men delighted millions of people with its expert storytelling over the course of its seven season run.

Many would argue that the reason for Mad Men’s sustained brilliance was the exceptional writing boasted by the show. And if you are of this mind, too, then you should be really excited for the new Amazon original series, The Romanoffs.

An anthology series of eight episodes, Weiner has already recruited Slattery and Hendricks to star, but he is also reuniting many behind-the-scenes workers from Mad Men, including a writer, Semi Chellas, four producers, including Kathy Ciric, and numerous people who worked on casting, hair, makeup, costume design, and more. If you’ve always wanted more Mad Men, this might just be your best chance.

Of course, many other stars of Mad Men have gone on to do some wonderful things, as well. For example, Kartheiser starred on one of the most acclaimed episodes of Inside Amy Schumer, “12 Angry Men Inside Amy Schumer.” As for Moss, she has found a great deal of success with her new Emmy-nominated drama series, The Handmaid’s Tale. Hamm, the star of the show, won an Emmy for his work on the final season and has also delivered some killer performances in feature films like Baby Driver and Keeping Up with the Joneses.

Promotion for the New Psych Movie

Ever since USA’s beloved detective comedy, Psych, went off the air in 2014, fans have been clamoring to find out what has become of their heroes, Shawn Spencer (James Roday) and Burton Guster (Dule Hill). Being a compelling crime comedy, Psych is the kind of show with which it would make sense to do a television movie three years after the show concluded.

And that’s just what those involved are doing. The entire original cast of the show will return and Zachary Levi (Chuck, Tangled, Thor: The Dark World) will also be appearing as the film’s villain. Below is a clip that shows Shawn and Gus together again. Fans are over the moon!

While Maggie Lawson, Kristen Nelson, and Corbin Bernsen will be reprising their beloved roles on the hit comedy, sadly, Timothy Omundson, who played Carlton Lasseter, will only be appearing briefly due to the fact that the actor suffered a stroke earlier this year and has been recovering for quite some time. He, of course, would not pass up the opportunity for a cameo, so it will be a delight to see him, even if it is in a limited capacity.
