Westworld HBO Teaser Trailer
Between the unbelievable finish to the NBA Finals and the budget-blowing ninth episode of Game of Thrones' sixth season, it's understandable that more people aren't talking about the teaser trailer for HBO's Westworld.

HBO can’t stop leaking ‘Game of Thrones’ early

Game of Thrones: Season 6 Leaks
Game of Thrones has a serious piracy problem. That much is not news, but with the most recent season, things are getting to a whole new level. As TorrentFreak reports, last night's Game of Thrones episode was leaked to pirates hours in advance of its actual release on HBO. What makes things worse is that the leak didn't come from the usual source, press screeners -- it appears to be coming from an official HBO streaming service.

‘Game of Thrones’ episode 8 recap: It feels like Jon Snow is dead, and that’s a good thing

Game of Thrones Season 6 Episode 8
Even though HBO decided to bring Jon Snow back to life rather early at the end of the second episode of the current Game of Thrones season, he's had only a few brief appearances since then. And so far we’ve seen a Jon Snow who’s troubled about what happened, but also pretty determined to help Sansa and his family regain command of the north and then lead the defenses against the White Walkers. To some people, it may feel like Jon Snow is too absent from the show, but that’s actually a good thing. The show isn’t only about him, and while a big part of the main plot of the season revolves around this particular character, there are plenty of other important things going on in Westeros and Essos that we need to be aware of. With just two episodes left in season six, episode 8 brought us even closer to the inevitable conflict between bastards. But you should stop reading now, to avoid major spoilers, if you haven't seen episode 8 yet.

‘Game of Thrones’ episode 7 recap: Intrigues and mind games, or what the show is really about

Game of Thrones Season 6 Episode 7
We’re at that point in the current Game of Thrones season where we’re experiencing both huge anticipation and sadness at the same time. With episode 7 done for, it means the action will significantly pick up in the three parts left in the season. But it also means we’re going to get back to waiting for months for season 7 to come along. That said, we’re not quite there yet, and episode 7 is only revealing more of the machinations that go behind winning a throne -- any throne, not just the one in King’s Landing. We might be looking for exciting, fast-paced episodes filled with interesting revelations and epic battles. But intrigue is probably the single most important thing happening in The Seven Kingdoms. It truly is a game of thrones. And episode 7 is full of intrigue – major spoilers follow ahead, so avoid them at all costs if you haven’t seen the latest episode.

One of your favorite ‘Game of Thrones’ characters now has an awesome backstory

Game of Thrones Brienne Backstory
Long before Game of Thrones season 6 kicked off on HBO, book readers began to worry that the show would spoil many of the upcoming plot points in the remaining books that George R.R. Martin has yet to complete. They were right — the show has now moved into uncharted territory — but that doesn't mean the books aren't still going to have plenty of surprises of their own.

Watch: John Oliver needs these things to be invented immediately

John Oliver How Is This Not A Thing
In his regular HBO show that features “the fewest games and the least impressive thrones,” John Oliver has a segment in which he tries to understand why some things still exist, like daylight savings time or the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition. But he’s now looking to figure out why some things that we desperately need haven't been invented yet. Last Week Tonight is on vacation for Memorial Day, so Oliver recorded a YouTube exclusive video to tell us some of the things he’d like to see invented to make our lives easier.

Watch John Oliver tear into the ridiculous US presidential primary system

John Oliver US Presidential Primaries
HBO’s John Oliver takes issue with the way the United States chooses its president every four years. Specifically, Oliver focused on the way primaries and caucuses work, and how the system isn’t as democratic as regular voters might think. Oliver argues that either party can circumvent the will of the people by taking advantage of certain loopholes in the rulebooks, and they essentially bypass the primary vote if they want to.
