Getting Answers About the Upcoming Star Trek Reboot
Star Trek is coming back for a 2017 TV series, and we can’t wait to see executive producers Trevor Roth and Eugene Roddenberry (Yes, son of legendary Gene Roddenberry) answer Q&A’s about what’s new in the Trek Universe. Plus, exclusive material from the Roddenberry Vault will also be released. Of course, all of this is in honor of Star Trek’s 50th birthday.

Watching Always Sunny’s Mac Moderate A Game of Thrones Panel
We’re not sure if the Game of Thrones cast will have anything new to reveal after last season’s tumultuous finale, but when we found out Rob McElhenney of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia was moderating, it became a must-see event. Watching Mac take on Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon) is the Q&A we never knew we needed. Set to attend are John Bradley, Liam Cunningham, Nathalie Emmanuel, Conleth Hill, Faye Marsay, Hannah Murray, Kristian Nairn, Sophie Turner, Isaac Hempstread Wright, and Rheon himself. Hold the door for this one.
