Game of Thrones' Kit Harington blabs to a British bobby about his character's resurrection.
SECRET’S OUT: Now that the worst-kept secret in television history is finally out, British actor Kit Harington can at last talk about the fact that Jon Snow has been resurrected in Game of Thrones. Harington has apologised for lying about the fate of his character, but he’s also revealed to TV host Jimmy Fallon that there were a few people who knew, including one British bobby.
FILMS ON TV: Movies have always been the basis for TV series, but there is a bumper crop coming out of the US this year. We’ve seen Limitless, About a Boy, Bates Motel, 12 Monkeys, Hannibal and Fargo here already, but how do you fancy Lethal Weapon, based on the Mel Gibson-Danny Glover films; The Exorcist, with Geena Davis; or Westworld, starring Anthony Hopkins in his first role as a TV series regular?
SVOD HIGHLIGHT: What’s good in subscription video on demand. Little Women Big Cars, available on TVNZ OnDemand, is a cute series made by internet provider AOL about four soccer mums. It stars Amy Yasbeck, Kristy Swanson and Alexis Denisof, and appropriately, its five-minute episodes are absolutely perfect for busy women.
