Ahead of the fourth season premiere of Game of Thrones, which arrives on April 6th, HBO filmed an origins video for the production of the series with David Benioff and Dan Weiss. Narrated by Charles Dance, the video tells the entertaining and sometimes hard-to-believe journey of how the hugely popular book series were made into what we see on the screen.

Not included in the video: Apparently, Gandalf’s sword from Lord of the Rings is included among those in the actual Iron Throne.


Robin of Locksley and Orlando Bloom’s sword from Kingdom of Heaven are also purportedly among those in the throne.

Here's some Daveed Diggs for you. On Daveed Diggs' digs, actually. That man does things with clothes that should not make sense, but are absolutely perfect. (Go Fug Yourself)

Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)

Not The Worst but still very gross: Leonardo DiCaprio and his Pussy Posse Wolf Pack were on the douche prowl in NYC. (Lainey)

Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)
