The Young Pope is HBO's delightfully absurd new drama that aims to finally answer the Church's oldest question: What if the pope was a young, chain-smoking bully with a hot bod and a twisted thirst for power? Despite its prestige television presentation, the show is a lot more Twin Peaks than House of Cards. In the end, however, The Young Pope finds its closest spiritual companion in last year's Suicide Squad.

Shortening the final two seasons of Game of Thrones seems, on its face, to be a bad thing. All previous seasons included 10 episodes, but the next two will only have seven or eight each. Overall, we're getting less Game of Thrones than usual! But one of the show's stars has a very good explanation as to why having shorter seasons is actually a good thing.
Season two of HBO's The Leftovers ended almost exactly a year ago by bringing karaoke king Kevin Garvey (Justin Theroux) back to life —and making it seem like Jarden, Texas was going to be his permanent home, sweet, home. But the first tidbits from the show's third and final season suggest that might not be true.
We're in for a fairly long wait between now and season two of Westworld, since it's been confirmed that we won't be returning to the park and its hosts until 2018. That means that viewers can spend more than a year trying to figure out what we'd like answers to, what we need to see and what problems from season one we're hoping to see worked out. Here's our list.
It's the last call for Westworld surprises... at least for season one. We're encroaching on the final episode of the first season. And sure, the most obvious "theories" in the show have already turned out to be true, but there are lots we can move forward from the expected into the unknown. That is, unless you prefer to keep the mystery, which is totally understandable.
There's a ton of anticipation heading into the 90-minute long Westworld finale. With just a 10-episode first season, the show is already an obsession for the millions of people tuning in every week. Lots of time has been spent by fans trying to piece together "clues" to provide evidence for any number of theories. But the mysteries are only the tiniest part of what makes the show good.
Westworld has piled mystery upon mystery in its premiere season, and fans have developed several theories to explain what's happening, which the show keeps proving to be true. But with yet another major revelation revealed in the latest episode, there is also only one big thing left for Westworld to confirm... or deny.
