Emilia Clarke: Stop calling Game of Thrones sexist

"There’s so much controversy,” she tells EW. "Yet that’s what’s beautiful about Game of Thrones – it’s depiction of women in so many different stages of development. There are women depicted as sexual tools, women who have zero rights, women who are queens but only to a man, and then there are women who are literally unstoppable and as powerful as you can possibly imagine. So it pains me to hear people taking Thrones out of context with anti-feminist spin – because you can’t do that about this show. It shows the range that happens to women, and ultimately shows women are not only equal, but have a lot of strength.” PLUS: Watch Game of ThronesMarch Madness trailer.


The Walking Dead keeps making bad decisions

“Every TV show is a relationship, and this one feels poisoned beyond repair for me,” says Alan Sepinwall, adding: "For each good thing recent episodes have accomplished, the show has found a way to undermine it through shortcuts and other bad choices that seem to be more about keeping the narrative on track with what happened in the comics than fitting in with what the TV versions of the characters would think or do.” PLUS: Norman Reedus on last night’s episode, and what to expect in the season finale.
