21 Iconic Movie Characters That Were Almost Played By Completely Different Actors

21 Iconic Movie Characters That Were Almost Played By Completely Different Actors -


Emily Blunt as Black Widow


Emily Blunt was almost cast as Black Widow in Iron Man 2 but she turned down the role because of a scheduling conflict while working on Gulliver’s Travels.


Ryan Gosling as Doctor Strange


Before Benedict Cumberbatch starred as Doctor Strange in the movie, Marvel wanted Ryan Gosling so much that they commissioned some concept art of Gosling as Doctor Strange.


Jason Momoa as Drax


Jason Momoa who is now known for his role as a DC superhero, Aquaman, rejected the role of Drax in Guardians of the Galaxy because he said he had done a lot of roles where he didn’t say much and appeared with his shirt off. There was even some concept art done of him as Drax.


Will Smith as Neo


Will Smith passed on the role of Neo in The Matrix because he couldn’t get on board with the idea when it was pitched to him. He admitted that he would’ve messed the movie up since he had a more animated approach than Keanu Reeves did.


Gwyneth Paltrow as Rose DeWitt Bukater


Gwyneth Paltrow was one of the last 2 contenders for the lead female protagonist in Titanic, but she turned the offer down. She was hesitant to talk about it because her mother would not have been pleased to learn she was turning down offers and would deem it “unladylike”.


Jack Nicholson as Michael Corleone


Jack Nicholson who was known for his portrayal of The Joker in Batman (1989) was considered for the part of Michael Corleone in The Godfather. But ultimately, it was Al Pacino who made the character come to life.


Hugh Jackman as James Bond


Fearing he would be typecast as an action star if he took on both Wolverine and James Bond roles, Hugh Jackman said no when his agent called him up about acting in Casino Royale.


Christina Applegate as Elle Woods


After 10 years of playing Kelly Bundy in Married With Children, Christina Applegate rejected the role of Elle Woods for fear of being typecast as a dumb blonde. She said sarcastically that she couldn’t possibly regret her decision after Reese Witherspoon became more successful than her from starring in Legally Blonde.


Sean Connery as Gandalf


The original James Bond said no when Peter Jackson offered him the part of Gandalf in The Lord of the Rings because he claimed he didn’t understand the script.


John Travolta as Forrest Gump


John Travolta was the first choice for Forrest Gump, but he had to turn down the offer. While Tom Hanks did a marvelous job as the lead character, Travolta starred in Pulp Fiction which is also one of the greatest movies of all time.


Eddie Redmayne as Peter Quill aka Star-Lord


Eddie Redmayne was a serious candidate for the role of Star-Lord and was confirmed among those reading for it. However, in the end, Chris Pratt who was known for his role in Parks and Recreation became the Star-Lord we know today.


Michelle Pfeiffer as Clarice Starling


Michelle Pfeiffer was one of the first choices to play the FBI agent who had that famous conversation with Hannibal Lecter in Silence of the Lambs.


Christopher Walken as Han Solo


George Lucas disliked the idea of reusing actors from his previous films. That’s why he initially didn’t want Harrison Ford who had appeared in his film American Graffiti as Han Solo in Star Wars. He had Christopher Walken in mind but Ford eventually landed the job.


Liam Hemsworth as Thor


Liam Hemsworth, the brother of Chris Hemsworth who played Thor on the big screen, was also considered to play the character. In the end, the older Hemsworth won the role.


Jim Carrey as Edward Scissorhands


The director of Edward Scissorhands, Tim Burton, considered Jim Carrey to play the titular character. Carrey’s movie antics would’ve made Edward very different than how Johnny Depp interpreted the role.


Gal Gadot as Nebula


Gal Gadot almost became Marvel’s Nebula in Guardians of the Galaxy. The DC’s Wonder Woman said she would’ve had to shave off her hair and turn her head blue for the role which is ultimately what Karen Gillan did for it.


Bruce Willis as Sam Wheat


Bruce Willis passed on the chance to engage in some sensuous pottery-making with then-wife Demi Moore in the movie Ghost. He said no to the role and it wound up going to Patrick Swayze.


Reese Witherspoon as Cher Horowitz


While the director wanted Alicia Silverstone to play Cher Horowitz in Clueless from the beginning, the studio held auditions with other actresses including Reese Witherspoon who would star in Legally Blonde just a few years later.


Matt Damon as Jake Sully


Matt Damon had to give up the role of Jake Sully in Avatar due to a scheduling issue as he was just finishing The Bourne Ultimatum.


Jake Gyllenhaal as Peter Parker aka Spider-Man


Fearing a delay in Spider-Man 2 (2004), Sony reached out to Jake Gyllenhaal to replace Tobey Maguire. However, in the end, Maguire reprised the role while Gyllenhaal made a splash with his part in Brokeback Mountain. In an odd turn of events, the upcoming Spider-Man: Far From Home would actually show Gyllenhaal as the villain, Mysterio!


Olivia Wilde as Gamora


The part of the “most dangerous woman in the galaxy” was offered to Olivia Wilde. However, she did not accept it for undisclosed reasons.

9 Unpleasant Moments The Actors of “Game of Thrones” Went Through

9 Unpleasant Moments The Actors of “Game of Thrones” Went Through -



The HBO television network called Game of Thrones their most successful project — each episode gained almost 20 million views. It’s not just the twisted plot, where even the main characters tend to unexpectedly die that helped the series to succeed, but also the impeccable acting. The actors did their best on set, even if they had to do unpleasant things for the sake of their characters.

We at Bright Side tried to look at this story from a different angle and understand what kind of sacrifice the filming process required from the actors. Spoiler — the bonuses at the end will definitely boost your mood.

Kit Harington spilled the beans about Jon Snow’s fate to avoid a speeding ticket.

Jon Snow’s actor blabbed about the fate of his character to a policeman who wanted to give the actor a ticket for speeding. The officer stopped Harington’s car and said, “You can either follow me back to the police station now and I book you in or you can tell me whether you live in the next series of Game of Thrones.” The actor had to tell the truth, “I am alive next season.” After that, the policeman answered, “On your way, Lord Commander.”

Sophie Turner didn’t wash her hair for 2 years.

The actress who played Sansa Stark had to sacrifice her personal hygiene for the sake of her character. Together with many male actors, she had to significantly decrease her usage of shampoo. All because she was supposed to look naturally disheveled in the episodes where she escapes from King’s Landing.

In one of her interviews, the actress confessed, " Toward season 5 they started asking me to not wash my hair and it was really disgusting. Now I wear a wig so I can wash my hair whenever I want, which is nice. But yes, for a couple of years I was living with pretty greasy hair."

Maisie Williams fell off a horse.

The actress playing Arya Stark recalls one of the first episodes of horse riding with laughs. The actors were training on Icelandic horses that were the size of ponies. Nevertheless, that didn’t prevent the actors from having some collisions.

Once, Williams unsuccessfully got off her horse, getting tangled in the reins. “It was really funny, actually. My leg was, like, caught up by my ear, and I was like, “Oh, brilliant.” It seems the actress and her character have something in common.

Jerome Flynn almost got poisoned by diesel oil vapor.

The actor who plays Bronn almost got harmed during the battle scene with the dragons. Robert McLachlan, the director of photography, used diesel oil for creating a natural looking black smoke. Jerome Flynn had to stay at the epicenter of the fire for a long time. While other actors could wear smoke protective masks, Jerome didn’t have this opportunity. Maybe that’s the reason why the actor managed to convey his disgust so well — he almost got severely poisoned.

Moreover, the actor confessed that his postman now hates him since he shot Daenerys’s dragon.

Gwendoline Christie was filmed with a real bear.

The episode where Brienne of Tarth meets a bear is not a result of computer graphics. Accordingto the actress, the bear, whose name is Bart Junior, is an experienced actor. He had already acted in several other projects before playing in Game of Thrones.

While filming the episode, the actress was protected from the bear by a low electric fence. During breaks, the bear was fed cream from a pan with a long handle so that it “didn’t eat the actress” (that’s how the set team would joke around). “Why do you think I look so scared?” Christie says, recalling her experience.

Lena Headey struggled with the audience’s hatred.

According to the woman who plays Cersei Lannister, the audience hated her character so much that they started to transmit their negative feelings to her as well. For example, the nurse who was helping her with breastfeeding her second kid would say, “Shame on you!” when recalling the episode of public denudation. However, Headey takes it as a compliment to her acting skills.

Iwan Rheon got his face punched several times.

The actor playing Ramsay Snow (later Bolton) got punched in the face by Kit Harington several times. During the fight scene between bastards, Jon Snow got a bit carried away and hit his set partner’s face pretty hard. According to Harington, Rheon took it quite professionally. Anyway, it’s unlikely that he was actually happy to be on the receiving end of those punches.

Emilia Clarke was feeling nauseated during the heart eating scene.

The actress who plays Daenerys Targaryen confessed that this scene was pretty hard for her. During shooting, she had to eat 28 “horse hearts” made of berry jam. According to Emilia Clarke, the mixture was made of dry pasta and tasted like bleach. That’s why she always had a basket nearby in case she wasn’t able to hold back her vomit reflex.

Castle Black was really disgusting.

The set decorator, Richard Roberts, did his best when creating the residence of the Night’s Watch. According to his idea, the castle was supposed to look “dirty, grungy, cold, and as disgusting as possible.” In order to create this atmosphere, he asked to hang raw meat and bring in real pigs. The actors say that not only did the castle look greasy, but it was actually greasy in real life. “It smelled foul and looked foul but that’s how it should be, so we’re happy,” Roberts concluded. However, we are not aware of whether the actors had the same opinion.

Bonus 1: Sean Bean played football with his own head.

The actor who played the role of Ned Stark is very used to death scenes. And he relates to every scene with a good sense of humor. That’s why he found a good use for the model of his own head — he used it to play football with the set team. This kind of attitude inspires viewers to not worry so much about another death of their beloved character.

Bonus 2: Sophie Turner adopted the dog who played Lady.

Of course, during the shooting of Game of Thrones, the actors recall many kind stories as well. For example, the dog named Zunni who played Lady and who was viciously killed on Lannister’s whim got a loving family off set. Sophie Turner, whose character owned Lady in the series, adopted the dog in real life. She shared her joy with the creator of the book George R.R. Martin and he told the whole world.

Bonus: The casts thoughts on season 8!

Looks like you’re gonna have to die a couple more times, Sean.

Via Imdb





When we think of methods that governments and big corporations use to spy on us, we often think of computers, smartphones, and maybe surveillance cameras. As you are about to find out, these are hardly the only things that can be used to keep tabs on us.

Seemingly innocuous items like toothbrushes, headphones, and children’s toys can be turned into potent espionage devices. This really shouldn’t be a surprise, considering that every manufacturer wants to connect their products to the Internet these days. Big Brother (or at least big business) is watching . . .


10 Robot Vacuums

Robot vacuums can be quite convenient, but they can also spy on you. The Roomba iRobot i7+, for example, has been caught spying, and so has the Dongguan Diqee 360.

The iRobot i7+ is capable of making a map of your home when it cleans. Romba says the vacuum needs to create a map of your home so that it knows its way around. The map can also be useful if you want to order the vacuum to clean a specific room. However, Roomba revealed that the iRobot i7+ will also share the map of your home with other smart devices. Why does a vacuum need to share a map of your home?

Well, Roomba did not explain, but you can guess why, considering that the vacuum was jointly developed by Google, the king of spying. While Google insists the sharing is just to allow the robot to integrate with its digital Google Assistant, it’s hard not to imagine them making money off this somehow.[1]

One robot vacuum that is clearly spying on us is the Chinese-made Dongguan Diqee 360. The vacuum has Wi-Fi and night vision-capable 360-degree cameras. Worse, hackers can hack the cameras of the Diqee 360 to spy on you, when Dongguan isn’t spying on you itself.

 9 Cars

Our cars spy on us, and we’re not referring only to smart, self-driving models; we mean regular cars. They might not be smart, but they aren’t dumb, either.

Almost every vehicle produced today contains an event data recorder (EDR). The EDR records information about the vehicle, including its location, average speed, condition of the road, and the preferred route of its owner. This information is automatically sent back to the automaker.

Automakers say they use this data to study the behavior of their vehicles during accidents and offer improvement. This information is also shared with law enforcement to detect the cause of accidents. However, this does not mean automakers won’t use this information for other things.

For one, we don’t even know how much information carmakers gather from the cars. We don’t know who owns the information, either. Is it the car owner or the maker? Also, most car owners don’t even know they are being tracked. Automakers and salespeople aren’t very keen on revealing this information, either. So the spying continues.[2]


8 Headphones

You might be wondering how headphones could spy on us. Well, they’re basically microphones. Headphones and microphones work the same way. It’s just that headphones convert electrical signals to sound, while microphones convert sound to electrical signals.

Interestingly, they can be easily converted to work the other way around. Headphones can be turned into microphones by just plugging them into the dedicated microphone jack of your computer or the the single jack shared by the headphone and microphone in phones and laptops. Talk into them, and they become microphones.

This technology can be exploited to turn headphones into spy microphones—if some corporation, law enforcement, or government spy agency isn’t doing so already. Security researchers at Ben Gurion University in Israel have even created malware that turns headphones into microphones to spy on people.

The malware, which they called Speake(a)r, works by converting the output jacks of the computer into input jacks. The headphones can be used to listen to a person’s conversation whenever they are plugged into the computer.[3]

7 Toothbrushes

Toothbrushes are slowly moving from dumb plastic rods with soft bristles to gadgets. And as with every other gadget these days, they are being connected to the Internet to spy on us. In 2014, Oral B released a smart toothbrush that connects to specialized Android and iOS apps via Bluetooth.

The toothbrush records every brush stroke and presents it to the user at the end of every brushing session. The toothbrush offers suggestions about how the user could improve their brushing habits and can even send the information to their dentist. Speaking of dentists, they can also use the information to create brushing programs for their patients.

Kolibree also released a similar toothbrush around the same time. It claimed it helped users “outsmart their dentist.” It also added that users could share their brushing information with “dentists and family.” Why should we share our brushing information with our family? Also, there were concerns that the toothbrush could be used to send information to dental product advertisers.[4]

6 Alexa

Amazon’s digital assistant, Alexa, spies on you. You may not know this, but Amazon presently employs thousands of people to review voice commands users say to Alexa. The reviewers work nine hours a day, during which they analyze over 1,000 audio commands each.

These reviewers have listened to voice commands the users never thought Alexa or even another human could hear. They have listened to bank details, to private conversations that clearly weren’t directed at Alexa, and, at least once, to a woman singing in the shower.

Two reviewers once listened to what they believed was a sexual assault and reported it to Amazon. Higher-ups mentioned that it was not their responsibility to interfere. Some of these recordings happened when Alexa was switched off, indicating that Alexa either switched on by itself or when it heard something that sounded like an order to switch on. All of this has created privacy and spying concerns about Alexa.

However, Amazon does not call it spying. It says it only reviews voice commands to improve Alexa. Amazon explained, “We use your requests to Alexa to train our speech recognition and natural language understanding systems.” However, the company never mentioned that humans—and not some sort of artificial intelligence—were involved in training Alexa.

While Amazon claims the commands are analyzed anonymously, we know this is not necessarily true. Reviewed recordings often contain the user’s first name, account number, and the product serial number, which could be enough to identify a person.[5]


5 LED Lights

Photo credit: Famartin

Believe it or not, 171 LED lights at Terminal B of Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey provide more than just illumination. They are rigged with sensors and connected to eight video cameras to surveil people in and around the terminal.

The terminal is maintained by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. It says the cameras are only used to recognize long airport lines, vehicle license plates, and suspicious activity. However, we all know the system could be used for more. The Port Authority stores any information gathered by the lights and could hand it over to the police on request.[6]

4 Home Security Cameras

Security cameras are supposed to catch people trying to burgle our homes. However, we have discovered that they can—and do—spy on us, too. The fears of being watched by surveillance cameras have caused privacy concerns among owners and prospective owners of such devices. Users have become so paranoid about being watched by their security cameras that a startup even created one that turns around and faces the wall whenever you are home.

Concerns about spying were raised because security cameras can secretly take videos, pictures, and audio, which are all uploaded to the cloud. The audio capability is the most notorious because these cameras could record conversations that are supposed to be private and confidential.

There is also a flaw with the way the uploaded data is handled because a spouse can use it to spy on their significant other whenever they were away from home. Law enforcement could also order the cloud service provider to hand over the recordings without your consent.[7]

For now, we have caught Ring, a security and doorbell camera maker and subsidiary of Amazon, spying on people with their cameras. Ring says it does not spy on users but only uses recorded videos to improve object recognition—the sort of thing Amazon said with Alexa. However, its reviewers have seen private videos of people kissing, stealing, and shooting guns.

3 Toys

Children often talk to their toys as if they were human and could reveal private information in the process. This is slowly becoming a problem with the advent of smart toys rigged with cameras and microphones. These cameras and microphones sometimes send information to servers operated by the toymaker.

Genesis, a Hong Kong/Los Angeles toymaker, was caught spying on children with its doll called My Friend Cayla. The doll transcribed conversation to text and sent it to third parties. Curiously, when children asked the toy, “Can you keep a secret?” it always replied, “I promise not to tell anyone; it’s just between you and me.”

Hackers can also hack these toys to spy on children, steal pictures, videos, and audio recordings, or identify GPS coordinates that could reveal the location of the child. The Smart Toy Bear by Fisher-Price (a subsidiary of Mattel) has also been discovered to be vulnerable to hackers after researchers at Indiana University found a security flaw that allowed them to access the camera.[8]

2 Computer Mice

Everybody knows their computer spies on them, but most people seem to have ignored the spy capabilities of peripherals like keyboards and mice. Yes, that innocuous-looking mouse could be used to keep tabs on you. It has happened in Singapore.

In 2012, it was reported that Singapore employers were spying on their workers with different gadgets, including calculators, alarm clocks, and their computer mice. The spy mice looked and worked like regular mice, except that they were rigged with microphones and a built-in SIM card. The employer makes a phone call to the mouse, and it starts recording any conversation within 10 meters (33 ft).[9]

1 Smartwatches And Fitness Trackers

Smartwatches, fitness trackers, and similar smart wearables are another category of spy gadgets that are slowly emerging. These gadgets are so smart that they can use several sources of information to identify the wearer. They can also determine if the wearer is walking, running, or just taking a car, train, or bus.

This isn’t surprising at all when you realize that these wearables can also monitor the wearer’s hand movements to determine if they are entering sensitive information like pin numbers or passwords. Wearables can correctly determine the pin number or pattern used to unlock a cell phone 64 percent of the time, the ATM pin 87 percent of the time, and computer passwords up to 96 percent of the time.[10]

How to Be a Cop According to TV and Movies

How to Be a Cop According to TV and Movies -

Your father was a cop, his father was a cop, HIS father was a cop, and his father was...a janitor. But when you think about it, janitors are kinda like cops? Both cleaning up the a little more literally than the other, but still.

Your father and/or wife was tragically gunned down in an unsolved murder case...that still haunts you to this day.

You've solved every case...except the one that REALLY matters to you. Honestly, everyone probably suspects you're the one who did it - after all, you solved EVERY single case except this one? What gives? Also, in 90% of murders, it's a close family member who did it, typically the spouse. Just sayin'.

You don't have the time NOR the inclination to get your tie properly tightened to your collar. Not only are you not metaphorically buttoned up like those other squares in the department, you're LITERALLY not buttoning that top button of your shirt. How else will everyone know that you're married to the job, that you push yourself harder than anyone, and that tying it all the way hurts your neck a little bit and makes it hard to breathe?

Be known as a loose cannon maverick who plays by his own rules, to the degree that even your captain refers to you in that way, despite having promoted you to the rank of detective

Kinda strange that a police captain would continuously promote someone known to flaunt the rules and not follow procedure - sorta sends a message to the other officers that breaking protocol is what gets you ahead in the department, even though playing fast and loose with the rules typically leads to failed prosecutions and more criminals being able to walk free thanks to technicalities on warrants and chain-of-custody for evidence. You'd think a reputation for that kind of behavior would never be enabled at all, let alone rewarded - yet here we are!


Sure - pretty much every case you work ends with endless amounts of bullet-ridden cars and walls, not to mention all of the explosions (and the resulting civil lawsuits from the local natural gas company that resulted from the gas line shutdowns that were necessitated to prevent the entire city from being engulfed in flames). But in the end - you get results. Sure, the brass up top may not like your methods, but in the end, you always get your man.

...except, ya know, they've been riddled by 90 bullets and you have to go to the FBI for dental record analysis to confirm it was them you shot.

When you inevitably get suspended for going too far in the big case (that you're so close to solving), slam your badge and gun down on the chief's desk and storm out.

Sure, you'd THINK there would be a more formal process for all of that - filling out a bunch of paperwork, turning your gun in to the firearm specialist (since every bullet a cop uses is serialized and tracked), having some kind of review process, etc. But you'd be wrong - a dramatic slamming down of your badge and gun is basically all you need to do to tell your captain that you may not LIKE their decision, but - dammit - you gotta respect the call.

Sure, you didn't check to see if you live in a state with two party consent or not, and there's no way any evidence you gather would ever be admissible in a court of law, and you are definitely committing numerous felonies in attempting to arrest the leader of a major drug cartel, but other than closed!

Somehow this doesn't turn into an enormous media scandal about a suspended cop with a history of using excessive force enacting vigilante justice

The media is more active than ever in covering dirty cops and detectives that refuse to obey the law, but somehow they take no interest in your particular case, despite the abundance of red flags surrounding every action you've taken.

You're a regular here, because - let's face it - you're a barely-functioning alcoholic. It seems nice that you're on a first name basis with the bartender (who is always named Sully, no exceptions) and he warily asks you if you want "the regular", but even the mildest bit of examination would lead anyone to the conclusion that you drink way too much. C'mon - it's a Tuesday.


History Channel's Top 20 Worst Shows - Ranked By IMDB

History Channel's Top 20 Worst Shows - Ranked By IMDB


Remember when the History Channel actually used to be about HISTORY? We can't quite put our finger on when it happened... Maybe it was around the Ancient Aliens era... But at a certain point, the History Channel completely switched directions... The focus stopped being about education and history, and instead there was an almost frantic rush to entertain the masses. We started to see a huge number of shows that seemingly had nothing to do with history. And when the shows DID touch on historical matters, they often strayed into the territory of pseudo-science and bizarre conspiracy theories. Generally, the reputation of History Channel started to take a blow.

To understand our point, you only need look at some of the lowest-rated shows on this network. Almost everyone agrees that they were mediocre at best... Completely unwatchable at the very worst. We're talking about gems like Swamp People, Search For The Lost Giants, Big Shrimpin', and many others. Sure, these shows are entertaining. And if you love them, who are we to argue? But at the end of the day, the critics have spoken. These are the lowest-rated shows in the history of the History Channel, and to be honest, they probably deserve their low IMDB scores...


Ice Road Truckers is actually quite popular. Some would even consider it to be one of History Channel's best shows... But the ratings don't lie... Critics aren't exactly fond of this program. The average TV watcher isn't a huge fan either. Some people have described this show in less than ideal terms, stating that "it's about as exciting as watching someone drive to the supermarket." And that's what Ice Road Truckers is all about.

This show is about people driving trucks, and that's pretty much it. Yes, it's shot in Canada where there are some pretty icy roads. But for the most part, you shouldn't expect to witness anything too spectacular when you watch this show.


The History Channel is definitely no stranger to reality shows these days. But for whatever reason, their reality shows just keep getting stranger and stranger. Case and point: Swamp People. Yes, this is exactly what it sounds like - a show about people who live in swamps. The show focuses on a few families and follows their activities, which frequently involve roping and shooting alligators.

This show is probably popular because people are interested in the so-called "hillbilly" culture and lifestyle. With a rating of 6.5 on IMDB, it's not exactly a complete disaster. But many people have started to grow tired of this show, especially as the seasons drag on and on. It's been going since 2010, and it doesn't show any signs of slowing down.


Treasures Decoded was a show that obviously took inspiration from the success of Ancient Aliens. Although the shows are slightly different, they appeal to the same audience - those that want to explore different possibilities of humanity's history and origins. Airing in 2012, Treasures Decoded took full advantage of the "Nibiru," "Annunaki" and Mayan Doomsday obsessions that were rampant at that time.

It's exactly what you would expect from a History Channel show these days. A little bit of historical fact sprinkled with ample conspiracy theories and strange myths for good measure. Honestly, it's not a particularly bad show, but it does have one of the lowest IMDB ratings, with 6.6.


Brothers In Arms is a relatively new addition to History Channel's lineup, and it focuses on military history from the perspective of two military experts. The show follows Rocco and Eli as they try to start up their own store for military enthusiasts. Even though it just started in 2018, it's already getting some pretty negative feedback - at least on IMBD.

The score of 6.2 is explained by a number of disappointed critics. Many people have pointed out that 20 years combined between two people doesn't really count as "expert" knowledge. They're also not happy with the number of inaccuracies within this show, such as referring to an IFV (Infantry Fighting Vehicle) as a tank. At the end of the day, this show was obviously intended to appeal to gun enthusiasts... The problem is that most gun enthusiasts seem to know more than these guys.


If you've seen Swamp People and you crave even more swampy goodness, there's always The Legend Of Shelby The Swamp Man to keep you entertained. This show actually gets pretty positive reviews on IMDB. For whatever reason, some people absolutely love this guy and his life, and they're not afraid to share it. That would explain why Shelby gets a pretty mediocre score overall on IMDB.

But there are definitely those who absolutely hate The Legend Of Shelby The Swamp Man. They point out that he's one of the worst role models imaginable, and that no child should ever watch this show. They also state that Shelby's lifestyle is a "disaster waiting to happen," referencing his frightening lack of gun safety or proper boating protocol.


Did giants ever really exist? A normal person would look at the evidence, consider the possibility for a moment, and then immediately dismiss the entire idea. Not these guys. Jim and Bill Viera are on a quest to find real, concrete evidence of giant bones which are apparently scattered around the globe. Do they ever find any bones? Of course not. But hey, it makes for great television.

Or does it? Search For Lost Giants is definitely one of the lowest rated shows on the History Channel - at least according to IMDB. The disappointment stemming from user reviews was always inevitable. After all, these guys were clearly never going to find real giant bones. If they had, it would have been all over the news.

14 BIG SHRIMPIN' (6.1)

With a name like Big Shrimpin', it was hard to take this one seriously from the very beginning. And with a rating of 6.1 on IMDB, it seems like this show never really won too many people over. One of the most common complaints about this show is the fact that the Cajun dialect is extremely hard to understand. Even with the added subtitles, it's hard to keep track of what's going on.

Luckily, there actually isn't a whole lot going on in this show, with many describing it as a "snooze festival." So while it's easy to follow along, it's not exactly thrilling television. We're talking about shrimp fishing, after all.

13 MARKED - 6.0

Marked is another interesting addition to the History Channel - although we're not quite sure why it's on this network. It's a show about tattoos, which will definitely interest a lot of people out there. Some of the most negative reviews point out the fact that the subject matter is not suitable for children - especially the episodes which focus on gang-related tattoos. For example, there's an entire episode focuses on the admittedly beautiful tattoo culture of the Yakuza.

Once again, this isn't necessarily a bad show. It just didn't really blow too many people away, and there was only ever a few episodes published in this mini-series.


Now we're getting into the territory of five out of ten ratings, and these shows definitely show a notable dip in quality. We're The Fugawis left a lot of people confused. What was this show intended to be? The premise is simple - it's a reality show focused on a completely obscure motorcycle club. And the show definitely tried to be comedic in nature.

But at the end of the day, people weren't really sure how to react. The jokes weren't actually that funny, according to many critics. Others used stronger language, describing this entire show as "tasteless." The whole thing seems to be some kind of parody, and many people were left unimpressed.

11 MEGA MOVERS (5.7)

In theory, Mega Movers sounds like a really cool show. Tune in, and you'll see massive superstructures being transported across land, sea, and air with impossibly advanced technology. But in reality, the show never really excited us. After all, watching large structures being moved around isn't actually as thrilling as you might think. Often, these structures are being moved incredibly slowly.

In the end, we're forced to ask ourselves, "Why make a show about this?" Many of the reviews simply describe the show as "Okay." And in many ways, that one simple word completely sums up Mega Movers. In the end, the rating of 5.7 is probably well-deserved.

10 AX MEN (5.5)

Ax Men is actually one of the more high profile shows on History Channel. It still has nothing to do with history, but a lot of people tuned in, and a lot of people have their own opinions about this show. Some people love it - but judging by the IMDB rating of 5.5, it's safe to say that these people are in the minority.

Many people complain that the show seems rehearsed or choreographed. Experienced loggers state that it's incredibly unrealistic, and that "none of these guys would last a day on a real logging site." And of course, there are those who criticize its glorification of natural destruction. This show stopped airing back in 2016.


As the Huffington Post notes, this show seems to be the Australian equivalent of Swamp People. It's a bunch of random people shooting and harpooning giant crocodiles. Same premise, different side of the globe. Not many people are crazy about this show, and that should be obvious judging by its rather low score of 5.3 on IMDB.

Many critics point out the complete lack of safety in the show, and the fact that it's the "same old croc stuff." It only went for one season, back in 2012. But hey, if you're still not bored of wild swamp mayhem, then this show might just be for you.

SLICED (5.2)

There's no denying that human beings are obsessed with seeing things destroyed. Well, the History Channel decided to make that entire concept into a show. It's called Sliced. The premise is simple - the host of the show spends his time destroying various objects - usually by slicing them in half. Why would he destroy objects in this manner? The vague excuse offered is that he's "trying to figure out how they work."

One example is when he sliced a car in half. One critic pointed out that he could have experienced the same thing by merely opening the car's doors. Other critics point out there's something wrong when we're slicing apart perfectly good cars and other objects for entertainment. There are plenty of people in this world who do not have access to cars.


Right from the get go, it's clear that this particular show was intended to follow in the mold of Mythbusters and related programs. You've got all the necessary ingredients. Slightly punk looking scientists and engineering experts, the general feel of a reality show, and tons of inventions to talk about.

But with a rating of 5.2 on IMDB, something clearly went wrong. It's actually hard to find any reviews on this show - which is generally a bad sign. No reviews means that no one is watching it, and those that DID leave a review didn't even bother to explain their reasoning. Invention USA only lasted for a couple seasons, and we're not sure anyone even noticed it was gone.


The mystery of the Knights Templar? The search for missing treasure? Pirates?! Sign us up. At least, that's what the majority of History Channel fans thought before they saw this thing. According to its IMDB rating, this show was a bit of flop when all was said and done. With a score of just 5.2, it's one of the lowest-rated shows in the network's history.

So why the negative reception? According to most of the user reviews, this one was absolutely filled with fake history and pseudo science. In many cases, they didn't even run tests on the artifacts they had found. According to critics, they failed to run these tests because they wanted to "invent" their own version of history.


Nothing like a bit of fire and brimstone to stir up the masses. People have been obsessed with doomsday prophecies for thousands of years, and it seems like History Channel is pushing this trend hard. Or at least they tried with shows like Revelation: The End Of Days. It's described as a "combination" of a documentary and a fictional account of biblical rapture. With a rating of 5.1, audiences weren't exactly thrilled. So what did they have to say about this show? Many people compared this show to series like Ancient Aliens and other famously inaccurate shows from History Channel. But at the end of the day, most critics just thought it was a bad mini-series.


Nor' Easter Men is basically another fishing show like Deadliest Catch. But this show never reached the fame and glory of its inspiration, and it now has a low score of 4.8 on IMDB. So what's this show about? Basically, we follow groups of fishermen based out of Gloucester, New Bedford, and Portland. The critics accuse this show of the obvious - cashing in on the success of Deadliest Catch. But in all honesty, the show never really got very far, and with just three episodes, there was hardly enough time to write a check - let alone cash it. All in all, this show probably received such a negative reception because it got canceled, and it just wasn't very interesting.


Zahi Hawass is a massive name in the world of Egyptology, and somewhere along the line History Channel decided to give him his own show. Was this a good idea? Maybe. But the fact remains - Chasing Mummies is one of History Channel's lowest rated shows of all time, with a score of just 4.6. Once again, it seems like the History Channel focused on creating a fun reality show rather than educating people about history.

Some people might enjoy the scripted nature of this reality show. The majority of critics obviously didn't see it that way. They accuse the show of focusing on Hawass' life, rather than the actual process of Egyptology itself.


A shipwreck filled with treasure should be lots of fun. It should be engrossing, captivating and awe-inspiring. History Channel's Billion Dollar Wreck seems to be none of those things, and that's why it fails. With a score of 4.6, it's almost rock-bottom in terms of IMDB's rating system. This show is about a guy who is searching for hidden treasure in sunken shipwreck.

The reviews make it painfully clear why this show is rated so poorly. In the words of one critic, "Nothing ever happens." You tune in hoping that someone will eventually find treasure, but it just seems to drag on and on. It's a shame, because the premise has so much promise.


We don't really know why Blood Money is rated so low... But it's definitely one of the lowest scores we've ever seen on IMDB, at just 4.1. It seems like this show didn't last very long - and there were only a few episodes for the first season. After that, the show was presumably canceled. As we mentioned before, having NO reviews is almost worse than having bad reviews... And it's very hard to find any kind of feedback about this show. If no one's watchingBlood Money, it's probably not very good. This show is apparently about young kids inheriting their parent's businesses, and trying to make it all work out.

23 Of The Best Twitter Reactions To Sunday Night's Episode Of 'Game Of Thrones' (SPOILERS)

23 Of The Best Twitter Reactions To Sunday Night's Episode Of 'Game Of Thrones' (SPOILERS) -





Game of Thrones Baddies: Ranking All the Villains

Game of Thrones Baddies: Ranking All the Villains -


I don’t think there’s any tv show, past or present, that has such a robust cast of villains, as Game of Thrones does. Most shows will aim for one, but this show, man… every episode has got me raging and screaming at the debased Asshole-ery on display. And every single one of them is a bad guy for the most human of reasons.So, going into the final season, I figured I’d rank ’em based on their actions and my feelings toward them. Note, I’m leaving the Night King out, because he’s more of a natural force, rather than a man with an evil plan.


22) Lancel Lannister

The guy’s a traitor to his family, and in his clueless state, decided to join with the Sparrows. Then he goes around, armed with lies and betrayal, just to please his little cult.There’s nothing redeeming in being someone else’s bitch for no good reason.


21) Xaro Xhoan Daxos & Pyat Pree

This annoying duo from Quarth weren’t really a threat anyone, but they still were manipulative as fuck. I’ve got a soft spot for Dany, so anyone with the wrong intentions, gets on my hit list. Oh, and throw in Doreah too, she was a sneaky bitch.At least they all got what what coming to them.


20) Karl Tanner

This guy was a self-centred, douchebag of a rapist and murderer, who led a mutiny against the Night’s Watch.Oh, and he murdered Lord Commander Mormont and then drank wine from his skull. So, there’s that.


19) Ser Janos Slynt

There’s always someone who ends up with a high title, and hides behind it like a suit of armour, even though they haven’t done much to deserve it. This dude was also a coward and a baby killer. He’s also the guy that betrayed Ned Stark and got him arrested and executed. Thankfully, Jon Snow took his head off too.


18) Locke

This guy was a for the TV show, so there’s not a lot of build up or history to him. Despite that, he was still a depraved bastard. He tried to rape Brienne, then feed her to a bear, he crippled Bran, then took the Kingslayer’s sword hand.But what a way to go, when Bran uses Hodor to practically rip his head off.


17) The Waif

An acolyte to the Faceless Men, she could have helped train Arya to be an elite assassin. Instead, she was a relentless bully. Beating her, belittling her, murdering Lady Crane, and finally trying to kill Arya, she got what she deserved.


16) Grand Master Pycelle

This guy’s lasted 6 seasons by keeping his head down, but he’s also cowardly and an annoying brown noser. He’s also lacks any moral credibility, as he claims to serve House Lannister, but testifies against Tyrion in open court.


15) Craster

He might have been a friend to the NIght’s Watch at one point, but he’s also a big piece of shit. He’s a wildling who raped his daughters and fed his incest-born sons to the White Walkers. Definitely not daddy material.


14) Ser Meryl Trant

This guy has no honour. He’s a knight who’ll break his sworn duty to defend the weak and the innocent without hesitation or question, when asked. He also beats and humiliates Sansa, and likes his prostituted a little too young.This guy was disgusting.


13) Viserys Targaryen

This son of the Mad King loved to call himself the Dragon, but he was anything but. He was a whiner and a loser, and thought it’d be cool to molest and sell his sister.His death by Khal Drogo is easily one of the best in the series.


12) Qyburn

This guy’s an insane mad doctor, who’s somehow the Queen’s hand. He does some good things with his knowledge of medicine, but he’s alluded to some sinister activities in the past.Plus, turning the Mountain into a stitched together monster is not cool.


11) Ser Alliser Thorne

This guy was good at running his mouth, but not so good at managing the Night’s Watch. On top of that, he was a sore loser and led the mutiny against Jon. That makes him a huge bastard in my books.


10) Mirri Mai Duur

While she was only in a few episodes, she really got under everyone’s skin for what she did to Dany’s unborn child and partner. It’s a shitty way to repay Daenerys’ kindness. I get doing what she did to Khal Drogo, but an innocent child? That’s a hard no.


9) Roose Bolton

Now we’re getting to the fun part of the list. This Machiavellian menace is ice cold. By killing his king in the heart, and teasing Catelyn about it beforehand, he paved the way for his bastard son to wreck havoc.


8) The Mountain

He’s most notorious for what he did 17 years before the show began, with the murder of Elia Martell’s babies, and his subsequent rape and murder of her. From then on, he’s done some nasty shit.HIs defeat of the Red Viper is as brutal as they come, and now he’s an obedient zombie, with no restraint.


7) The High Sparrow

There’s no greater villain, then the guy who wraps himself up in a cloak of self-righteousness. This guy is a deluded fanatic, and his act of forcing Cersei to be paraded through the streets nude, is a carnal sin of misogyny.There’s nothing worse than a fanatic who thinks he’s got the gods on his side.


6) Ramsay Bolton

I’ve never seen anyone who loves torture as much as this guy. He’s annoying as fuck and made me want to punch my tv every time he showed his face. His most heinous acts, of castrating Theon and raping Sansa, make him the worst of the worst.


5) Walder Frey

While he wasn’t has heavily featured as some other villains, he’s still a colossal douche. He’s changed the kingdom forever, over a petty reason and that whole Red Wedding thing? Yeah, nice guys don’t do that.


4) Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish

He might not seem like much at first, but he’s a weasel. He also secretly started the War of the Five Kings, and feasted on the chaos. Plus, he betrayed my man Ned.


3) Tywin Lannister

Granted, he was an endlessly complicated patriarch, full of hypocrisy and double standards, but man, he’s a charming asshole. He cuts a bloody path through the first 4 seasons of the show, placing his family’s name higher than the people in it, and he also ordered the death of his own son.That’s cold.


2) Cersei Lannister

Granted, she hasn’t had a good life – getting married off at a young age, raped nightly, and having her first child stillborn. Still though, she’s as frigid as they come.Starting off slow with the murder of her husband, she’s grown ambitious and foolish. Her rash decisions meant that she’s partnered with the Sparrows, corrupted the Mountain, and blew up a quarter of her capital, killing thousands.Between all the incest and murder, she’s descended into madness, and it’s interesting to see where she’ll go in the last season.


1) Joffrey Baratheon

There is no one worse than this snivelling, petty, and completely ignorant demon spawn. I hated every second that he was on screen, and that’s saying a lot. He was a fucking sociopath, who had the balls to condemn others to death, but also was afraid of his dwarf uncle and those close to him.Plus his knee-jerk reaction to publicly execute Ned Stark, and revoke his offer of mercy, set off ripples that are still being felt, going into the final season. The dude was a brat.

Game Of Thrones: 22 Burning Questions Season 8 MUST Answer

Game Of Thrones: 22 Burning Questions Season 8 MUST Answer -


It’s only a mere few days until April 14th when the 8th and final season of Game of Thrones begins. Six episodes later, it’ll all be over. But will we leave satisfied?I don’t envy the producers of a dense show like this one. There have been 7 seasons already, with so many dangling plot threads, prophesies, a shit-ton of incest, and other strange things, that there’s no way that everyone can leave satisfied with all plot lines resolved. I’m hoping they can try to tackle these before the inevitable end.I know that this isn’t all of them, so if there’s a plot thread I missed, toss ’em in the comments.



Is Tyrion a Targaryen?What if he’s not a Lannister at all? There have been some suspicious clues about his dragon blood.



Will Brienne finish her Got journey with Jaime or Tormund?It’s been one hell of a love triangle, so we wanna know who she’s gonna end up with, if anyone at all.



Will Gendry pursue his claim to the crown?As Robert Baratheon’s bastard son, he could. He’s also an ally for Jon and Dany now, but is he gonna branch out on his own?



Will Maggy’s prophesy keep on shaping Cersei’s fate?Who is the Valonquar and will he really choke the life out of Cersei?



Will Daario come back to Dany?He’s been maintaining things in Meereen, is he at least gonna to reunite with her before the end?



Will we ever find out why Illyrio helped Daenerys in season 1?What does he expect in return for this generosity, now that she’s close to the throne?



What is the Golden Company, and will they swing the tide of the war?Are they gonna be enough?



Will Dany’s visions at the House of the Undying come back to haunt her?Does what she sees, come into play at all?



Are the children of the forest still alive?Are they gonna do anything against the White Walkers?



Are any more of Old Nan’s stories going to come true?I mean, she was right about Bran and Walder Frey.



Are we ever gonna learn who built the wall?It’s a thousand years old, and stretches for 300 miles. Who put it there and why?



Is Tyrion actually in love with Daenerys?That look he gave her at the end of Season 7 was heavy. Does he want more?



What’s the deal with the red comet in season 2? Is it gonna pan out into something?There are plenty of theories, but what does it actually mean?



Will we finally see the long-hyped Cleganebowl?I mean, c’mon. The Hound and The Mountain have been dancing around for 7 seasons. It’s time to end things.



Will Theon ever redeem himself?He’s made apologies, did some heroic things, and tried to save Yara. Most likely, his arc will come to a redemptive close, but we want to know for sure.



Is anything ever gonna happen in Sothoryos?What’s the point of it? We’ve spent time in Westeros, Essos, but have yet to learn anything about Uthos and Sothoryos. Apparently, the inhabitants are half man, half animal.



Will Jaime switch his allegiance from Cersei to Dany?I think he’s had enough of his sister. Plus, I think he might be one that chokes her to death, probably with his metal hand.



Is Hot PIe a harbinger for death and destruction?He’s like oranges in The Godfather. Bad things happen.



Will we find out that Bran is the Night King?He’s influenced the past before. Maybe he goes into the past to prevent the creation of the Night King, and somehow becomes him. Google the theories, they’re insane.



Who was Quaithe and what did she want?Is she ever gonna come back?


Who is the Azor Ahai?Who’s gonna be the mysterious promised prince or princess? Jon Snow? Dany? Jaime Lannister? They better tell us.

Gear Up For The Game of Thrones With These 21 Memorable Moments

Gear Up For The Game of Thrones With These 21 Memorable Moments -

I spent the last few weeks rewatching all of Game of Thrones to get ready for the final season (only two more weeks!), and I was blown away by how much crazy shit happens in this show.

Season 1, Episode 1 “Winter is Coming”The first episode does a lot to set the tone of this show. We’re executing people, there are monsters out there, and also the queen fucks her brother and will do anything to keep it going. That includes attempting to kill a 7-year-old by pushing him out of a tower.

Season 1, Episode 6 “A Golden Crown”We first meet Daenerys Targaryen as a 15-year-old being sold off to a savage tribe by her brother. It doesn’t take her long to become quite the badass, cemented in the scene where we watch her eat an entire horse heart, throw it up a little, but choke down that puke and prove herself as worthy of the title Khaleesi.

Season 1, Episode 7 “You Win or You Die”Our first real lesson in “you can’t trust anyone” came from Peter “Littlefinger” Baelish. Lifelong friend of Catelyn Stark and thought to be ally to Eddard Stark, we learn what a true piece of shit he is when he betrays Ned as he tries to (rightfully) claim the throne.

Season 2, Episode 4 “Garden of Bones”The Red Woman, Melisandre, is full of ‘what the fuck’ moments throughout the show, but the first and still probably craziest is watching her give birth to a smoke demon in some cave, proving that there is some claim to her ‘powers’.

Season 2, Episode 9 “Blackwater”Wildfire. I feel like that’s all I really have to say, because no one would have expected the medieval version of an atomic bomb to be set off by Tyrion and Bronn to defend King’s Landing. I can see why the Mad King was so obsessed with this stuff.

Season 2, Episode 10 “Valar Morghulis”Even though this is the first episode we see the army of the wights and get a good luck at a White Walker, I’m still giving this one to Daenerys’s vision of the Iron Throne while trapped in the House of the Undying.Why? Because Winter has come, the Night King has his own dragon, and this vision of a destroyed throne room covered in snow could really happen in this next season. It’s also eery that Dany has never seen the Red Keep or the Iron Throne before, so I’m counting this as a vision of the future.

Season 3, Episode 3 “Walk of Punishment”Season 3 is all about loss, starting off with the Kingslayer losing his sword hand. Holy shit that shocked me when I first saw it, and it shocked me every time I see it.

Season 3, Episode 10 “Mhysa”Ramsay Snow/Bolton is a weird and sick fuck, honestly rivaling Joffery for the evilest character in the entire show for me. So when he chopped off Theon’s penis and decided to eat a sausage while telling Theon, I honestly thought he was crazy enough to cook and eat someone’s penis in front of them. Maybe GoT has ruined me…

Season 3, Episode 9 “The Rains of Castamere”I said I was trying to avoid deaths, but really you can’t skip past the Red Wedding. The Starks lost everything: Rob, his future wife/children, Catelyn, the war, the North, Grey Wind. And then Arya watching as they brought out Rob’s body with Grey Wind’s head sewed/skewered on top? It’s hard to beat something this rough.

Season 4, Episode 10 “The Children”Arya leaving The Hound to die instead of ending his suffering stood out to me. Those two grow extremely close to each other over the past season and a half, despite how much Arya hated him for killing her friend and The Hound hated everyone and everything.But Arya choosing not to kill him to cross him off her list was a turning point, it was when Arya learned that maybe killing was too good, that she was willing to let people suffer. This is where “tomboy Arya” turned into “sadistic Arya”.

Season 4, Episode 9 “The Watchers on the Wall”The Battle of Castle Black is a unique episode, one of few that only features a single storyline. And watching the wildlings fight the Night’s Watch was badass. Giant’s and their bows, wooly mammoths, and the kickass final stand of Grenn and his men defending the gate against a giant.

Season 4, Episode 4 “Oathkeeper”We finally see what the White Walkers have been doing to the baby’s that Craster has been sacrificing in the woods, turning them into more White Walkers. That’s messed up.

Season 5, Episode 8 “Hardhome”The Battle of Hardhome blew my mind for showing the true power of the White Walkers and the army of wights. The immense number of them, the control the White Walkers has over all of them, and watching the Night King resurrect all the dead in front of Jon Snow was terrifying.

Season 5, Episode 9 “The Dance of Dragons”One of the few character death’s I’ll include, but Shireen was a lovely girl who lived her life locked away in a dungeon and was still the nicest person in the world. Being burned alive by her mother and father and listening to her scream is a haunting scene that it’s 100% okay to fast-forward through.

Season 5, Episode 10 “Mother’s Mercy”Even though Cersei is a truely evil person, her walk of atonement through the streets of King’s Landing is hard to watch. Only made worse by the scene being over 6 minutes long and it leaves you with a weird feeling of “good, I hate that person” and “what the fuck, this is messed up”.

Season 6, Episode 5 “The Door”Hodor’s death isn’t what shocked me, but Bran not realizing the consequences of his powers and turning young stableboy Willis into the simple giant Hodor we know, changing his life forever.

Season 6, Episode 9 “Battle of the BastardsThe pure scale and masterpiece that the Battle of Winterfell is should be recognized. 25 days of shooting, 600 crew members, 500 extras, and 70 horses were needed to create this amazing battle.

Season 6, Episode 10 “The Winds of Winter”Another “Holy shit, Arya, you’re a twisted little fuck” moment was her revenge against the Frey’s. I mean, feeding Walder Frey his own children before slitting his throat was another nail in the coffin of “this girl would be a serial killer if Ned Stark hadn’t raised her”.

Season 7, Episode 7 “The Dragon and the Wolf”All my season 7 moments come from the same episode, but they’re also the biggest things in the show ever.First off, learning that Ned Stark’s bastard son, Jon Snow, isn’t Ned’s son or a bastard. He is the son of Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen who were wed in a secret marriage. His true name is Aegon Targaryen, and is the rightful heir to the Iron Throne.

Season 7, Episode 7 “The Dragon and the Wolf”Not only watching the Night King resurrect the fallen dragon Viserion is batshit crazy (yes, it happened an episode earlier, whatever), but watching him destroy the wall, possibly killing Tormund, and march the army of wights south into Westeros left everyone speechless.

Season 7, Episode 7 “The Dragon and the Wolf”The biggest shock for me in all of Game of Thrones was seeing the remaining Stark children reunited after 5 years and working together to protect their home and their family’s legacy.In a show that is always about the worst possible happening, it blew my mind that something so good and happy could happen. Seeing the three of them sitting at the table during Littlefinger’s trial was probably the last happy image we’ll have from this show.

29 Of The Most Shocking 'Game of Thrones' Deaths - Ranked!

29 Of The Most Shocking 'Game of Thrones' Deaths - Ranked! -

‘Game of Thrones’ is known for killing off its characters. Like most people, my favorite death was that little shit-head Joffrey. But, this ranking is based on how much each loss shocked us, changed the show’s tone, and made us rethink our concept of the series, rather than purely on emotional impact.Warning: Spoilers Ahead!

29: Maester Aemon Targaryen(S5, E7)Aemon proves that a more traditional death from old age can be just as sad and shocking as the violent ends so many characters face. When he finally passed away in bed, at least he had Sam and Gilly at his side.

28. Thoros of Myr(S7, E6)When our gang of favorite Northerners finds themselves surrounded by the Army of the Dead, they’re forced to remain on a small frozen piece of land in the middle of a lake overnight. It is during this time that Thoros freezes to death, devastating Beric.

27. Talisa Stark(S3, E9)Talisa’s death was just the start to the nonstop nightmare of “The Red Wedding.” Compared to other victims like Robb and Catelyn, we didn’t know Talisa that well. But stabbing her unborn baby to death was a horrible way to start things off.

26. Jojen Reed(S4, E10)Apparently, Jojen always knew he was doomed to die, but was still determined to get Bran to where he needed to go. He didn’t deserve to be repeatedly stabbed by a skeleton, but at least he died having fulfilled his duty to Bran.

25. Syrio Forel(S1, E8)What do we say to the God of Death? “Not today.” Maisie Williams recently confirmed that Arya’s “dance instructor” never made it out of King’s Landing, and the news devastated us.

24. Grey Wind(S3, E9)You might think it’s crazy to have a direwolf this high on the list. But, if you still remember Grey Wind’s dying whimper after those Frey bastards shot him full of arrows, you’ll agree.

23. Lady(S1, E2)Arya’s direwolf died at the reluctant hand of Ned Stark after Joffrey, in one of his earliest displays of douchery, said she attacked him.

22. Stannis Baratheon(S5, E10)Watching Stannis get sucked deeper and deeper into Melisandre’s preachings was frustrating, to say the least. Every now and then he still showed a flash of humanity, but by the time Brienne tracks him down and exacts her revenge, Stannis has committed or condoned some truly appalling crimes.

21. Barristan Selmy(S5, E4)Ser Barristan remained a legendary fighter even in his old age, so it seems appropriate that he finally went down in a grand battle against the Sons of the Harpy, and even saved Grey Worm.

20. Shae(S4, E10)Just like Tyrion, we used to love Shae, but then she went and betrayed him at his trial. We’re still mad at her for that, but that doesn’t mean we weren’t sad and rather shocked when Tyrion ended up strangling her to death after being broken out of his jail cell.

19. Viserys Targaryen(S1, E6)Viserys was a sniveling brat who proudly admitted he’d let 40,000 men rape his sister for a shot at the throne. Well, he finally got the gold crown he always wanted when Drogo poured liquid gold over his head. Careful what you wish for!

18. Mance Rayder(S5, E1)Stannis sure does like burning people. Dying at the stake seems like a lame way for the fearsome King Beyond the Wall to go, but at least Jon Snow helped him out with that arrow to the heart.

17. Robert Baratheon(S1, E7)Cause of death? “A wild boar.” But really, his wife Cersei’s scheming (she got him drunk before he went hunting) was really to blame. Still, it all happened off-screen, so it was a bit of a bore. Get it, boar/bore!? I’ll see myself out…

16. Shireen Baratheon(S5, E9)Shireen couldn’t catch a fuckin’ break. Afflicted with greyscale and openly hated by her awful mother, she was still a remarkably sweet girl. Stannis seemed to love his daughter, but still goes along with Melisandre’s plan to sacrifice her to the Lord of Light.

15. Olenna Tyrell(S7, E3)One of our favorite schemers, Olenna went out with a bang. After she drinks Jaime’s poison, she informs him of her involvement in Joffrey’s horrific murder. “Tell Cersei,” she says, smiling at him. “I want her to know it was me.”

14. Walder Frey(S6, E10)Walder Frey had to die, and it had to hurt. The things that didn’t have to happen are what make his death great, specifically: the cold symmetry of Frey’s slit throat and Catelyn Stark’s, baking Frey’s kids into a pie, and best of all Arya doing the deed herself.

13. Khal Drogo(S1, E10)Our sun and stars’ death was a most painful one, mostly because of the tender relationship he came to share with Daenerys by the end of season one. Watching her smother her love to end his suffering was downright painful, but seeing the fire it ignited under the mother of dragons was almost worth it.

12. Ygritte(S4, E9)That kid Olly thought he was doing a good thing by shooting an arrow in Ygritte’s back, but all he did was break Jon Snow’s heart. AND OURS. We’ll never hear her taunt Jon Snow about his head full of nothingness again.

11. Tommen Baratheon(S6, E10)Poor, sweet, Tommen never wanted any of this. The crushing silence of his suicide produced probably the most memorable isolated death in “The Winds of Winter,” an episode with the highest main-cast-member kill count of the whole series since “The Rains of Castamere.”

10. Lord Ramsay Bolton(S6, E9)After seasons of watching the Bastard of Bolton murder, rape, torture, and humiliate characters, we finally go to watch him die. It was disturbing as hell to watch him get devoured by his own dogs – the beasts he starved to terrorize others – but it was satisfying as hell.

9. Viserion(S7, E6)We all knew Daenerys couldn’t keep ALL three of her dragons forever, and if she was gonna lose one, we’re happy that he at least turns into a badass zombie dragon that breathes blue fire.

8. Tywin Lannister(S4, E10)Getting crossbowed on the can is a pretty crappy way to go. (Sorry, I had to.) Tyrion shot Tywin twice in the torso, without even letting arguably the most powerful man in Westeros pull up his pants.

7. Robb Stark(S3, E9)Robb did sort of bring this on himself, but it was for love! Watching his agonizing crawl over to Talisa’s lifeless body was too much to handle.

6. Joffrey Baratheon(S4, E2)Sure, we all screamed “HE’S FINALLY DEAD!” from the mountaintops after Joffrey chocked down poison at his own wedding – but we have to admit we almost miss hating on the little bastard. Almost.

5. Hodor(S6, E5)Three simple words: “Hold the door.” I don’t think any of us were prepared for Hodor’s devastating backstory and death. It was the most I’ve ever cried watching someone die on ‘Game of Thrones.’

4. Littlefinger(S7, E7)Well, it’s about damn time. Petyr Baelish has been playing all our favorite characters for way too long. Watching Arya slit Littlefinger’s throat with the very dagger he tried to have Bran Stark killed with was such poetic justice.

3. Catelyn Stark(S3, E9)How much pain can one mom endure? Her husband is dead, her son Bran was pushed out of a tower, her son Robb was just killed, her unborn grandson was just stabbed…I could go on. It’s almost a relief when another Frey comes up to kill her too.

2. Eddard Stark(S1, E9)Ned’s execution was the first clear warning: don’t get attached to ANYONE. This franchise can and will come for even the most lovable, loyal dads. Seeing Ned’s severed head is a TV moment that still haunts us.

1. Oberyn Martell(S4, E8)Everyone was sporting Team Oberyn t-shirts when it came to his trial by combat battle with The Mountain. And it wasn’t enough to have him murdered. Oh no. They let us believe the Red Viper had won and avenged his sister right before the Mountain popped his head up! Tyrion’s fate was literally in Oberyn’s hands, which made it even more devastating to watch his skull get brutally crushed by the biggest man we’ve ever seen.



If you’re already stressed over the final two episodes of The Walking Dead season nine, fear not, for we are here to, well, make you feel a little worse. This Sunday night’s episode, titled “The Calm Before,” will be followed by the season finale next week, aptly titled “The Storm,” and fans should expect a little gore and trauma in the way only The Walking Dead can deliver.


The penultimate episode of the season is showing signs of a huge escalation between the communities and The Whisperers. The events in this Sunday’s episode will set up an epic season-ender for this season’s showrunner, Angela Kang. Before all hell breaks loose, we’re sharing our nine predictions for The Walking Dead season nine finale airing on March 31 on AMC.


The Whisperer War

A few members of our group have had a number of run-ins with the terrifying new threat, but expect The Whisperer War to exponentially escalate by the finale. After years of relative peace -- save for a murderous child here and there -- the new war is about to get even more bloody and heartbreaking.

Communities Reuniting

The fair we've heard about since the mid-season premiere on top of the deadly Whisperers will inevitably bring Alexandria, Hilltop, and The Kingdom back together. Even reunited, though, can the collective communities take on such a formidable group led by the sociopathic Alpha?

Rallying Speech

Communities reuniting and old grievances being pushed aside can only be complete with some inspiring words. Whoever gives the speech might not come close to Rick Grimes' famous call to arms of the past, but we'll be surprised if one of our leaders -- or perhaps young Judith Grimes -- don't take the opportunity to rally the troops before battle.

Major Deaths

The promo for this Sunday's episode is already teasing potential character deaths as a few favorites have found themselves in a no-win situation. Even if someone does bite it in the penultimate episode, it doesn't mean anyone will be safe in the season nine finale. Gird your loins, people. There could be multiple heads rolling by the end of this one.

Ally Negan

Negan probably deserves to stay locked up forever after all of the brains he bashed in while leader of the Saviors. But after a few years in jail stuck with his thoughts and alleged guilt, it might be time to break the bat-wielding guy free to help take on those who walk with the dead. A character like Negan can't stay locked up in a cage forever.

Dog Dies Saving Daryl

We're definitely on team If Dog Dies We Riot, but ever since Shiva was killed while attempting to save her human Ezekiel, we're concerned our new fluffy, loyal friend might meet a similar fate.

Beta vs. Daryl Rematch

Daryl and Beta might come face-to-face again before the finale, but there's potential for these two warriors to have a little rematch before the end of the final hour of the season, especially if someone Daryl cares about dies in the next episode. Revenge always works out pretty well, right?

A Shocking Cliffhanger

A stressful cliffhanger is usually a given, but with The Whisperer War promising even more pain and death, season nine could be gearing up to be one of the most memorable finales to date.

Alpha Kills Lydia

With the help of new beau Henry, Lydia has turned her back on her abusive mother and rotting flesh-covered crew. Alpha may have come for her daughter once before, but the cruel leader has already earned the award for most ruthless and heartless Walking Dead villain ever. It's difficult to imagine Alpha would be willing to take back her daughter this time around, and killing her only child would certainly be a jaw-dropping finale moment.


24 Gifs Of The Best Scenes From The Walking Dead

24 Gifs Of The Best Scenes From The Walking Dead -


From losing popular characters to watching bloodthirsty walkers barbarically rip through human flesh, it’s safe to say The Walking Dead really does have a way of playing with our emotions and making our stomachs churn! So, to celebrate all the gory, unsettling and downright epic moments from the show, we’ve gathered the best scenes it’s brought us so far.

We take it all the way back to when Rick first opened his eyes to the current events of the show where beloved characters no longer live and new people are fighting to survive the apocalypse. Put your reading glasses on, prepare for a selection of super-cool (and graphic) GIFs and dive into our list of The Walking Dead’s best scenes…



1. Rick Wakes Up
Season 1, Pilot

No one can ever forget the opening of The Walking Dead, or rather, one of the best episodes of the entire show – Rick opens his eyes from a drawn-out coma only to find himself in the middle of an abandoned hospital, during a full-blown apocalypse. There wasn’t a better and more memorable way to open the show. Killing off the young zombie girl also made for compelling viewing. Like WTF was happening? We were hooked from the get-go.

2. Rick and Glenn’s Escape
Season 1, Guts

Talk about intense! It’s true when they say the earliest seasons of this show had the greatest moments. Glenn and Rick’s first ever meeting might have got off to a bloody start but their chemistry from back then was as clear as day. The duo, although strangers at the time must unite and stroll through a swarm of walkers. Covered in blood and guts themselves, Glenn and Rick had our eyes glued to the screen as they disguised themselves among the dead.

3. The First Attack
Season 1, Vatos

The very first attack on Rick’s gang was one to remember although a few beloved characters were turned into walker meat. Long before the days of the Governor or Negan, the one and only enemy were the menacing walkers. Their first attack on the camp sees the deaths of Ed Peletier (Carol’s abusive husband) and sadly, Amy (Andrea’s sister). Seeing Andrea cradling her dying sister was the first of many heartbreaks to come…

4. Goodbye Sophia
Season 2, Pretty Much Dead Already

The Walking Dead didn’t have us prepared for this sensitive viewing. The reveal of little Sophia’s horrible fate really hit the heart. After searching for her daughter for so long, Carol and the gang soon realise that she was pretty much dead already. When a sea of walkers emerge from a farm building, Sophia appears with them, only not alive, but a zombie herself. Our favorite characters are distraught as are we, and Rick puts the little girl out of her misery by shooting her dead.

5. Dale Down
Season 2, Judge, Jury, Executioner

It sucked when the voice of reason and father figure was ripped from the show. In yet another emotional scene in The Walking Dead, daddy Dale is bitten by walkers and is eventually killed off by Daryl, shooting him directly in the head. This scene was even tougher to watch knowing that Dale was fully aware of what was happening. RIP dude.

6. Carl Shoots Shane
Season 2, Better Angels

We certainly didn’t see this one coming. Sure, Shane was beginning to lose his mind and all, but his death was unexpected. After beefing with Rick and saying some pretty darn mean things to him in the middle of a field, Shane attempts to shoot his friend before Rick dives a knife into his stomach. Before you know it, Shane turns into a walker and little Carl comes out of nowhere, saving the day. Grabbing hold of a gun, the young kid kills Shane point blank. Seeing the demise of an old friendship and the start of a little boy turned warrior made for one of TWD’s best scenes to date.

7. Lori’s Death
Season 3, Killer Within

It kind of sucks that most of The Walking Dead’s best moments are the deaths of its beloved characters – but these unfortunate events always make for good, and emotional TV. We certainly weren’t waiting for Lori’s death. I mean, you don’t kill off the hero’s wife, right? The Walking Dead sure does! After a painful and agonizing labor, Lori dies giving birth to her daughter, Judith. Poor little Carl has to do the deed by finally finishing his mother off before she turns into a zombie. Damn, that kid went through a lot.

8. Michonne vs. The Governor
Season 3, Made to Suffer

Michonne’s discovery of the Governor’s weird artefacts as well as his protected zombie daughter leads to a full-on battle between herself and the greatest monster of the show. The Governor loses an eye and a daughter during this very fight, turning him into an even greater villain for episodes to come. Watching the Governor cry over his dead walker daughter certainly brought on a few mixed emotions – we didn’t know whether to sympathise or not.

9. Daryl Looses Merle
Season 3, This Sorrowful Life

Merle entered the show a badass and left the show a badass. Dying on a suicide mission at the hands of the Governor, Daryl as well as the fans were saddened and shocked to see Merle go full zombie. In what was probably one of Norman Reedus’ most emotional performances on the show, Daryl breaks down but ends up stabbing his brother-turned-walker in the head – a few too many times.

10. Hershel’s Unexpected Death
Season 4, Too Far Gone

Fans reeled over the death of the Governor but mourned over the demise of the poor and wise Hershel. Just when we (kinda) got over Dale’s death, the show throws this moment at us like a ton of bricks. Hershel’s head is sliced off by none other than the brutal Governor in front of his dear friends and daughters. This truly broke viewers’ hearts. Hershel didn’t deserve to die.


11. The Governor Goes Down
Season 4, Too Far Gone

If there’s anyone who had to kill the Governor (other than Rick), it was Michonne – and that she did pretty darn well. During his attack on the prison, the Governor finally gets his deserved fate by getting stabbed by Michonne and then shot by Lilly Chambler. Although we would have preferred a much slower death for the psychotic villain, it didn’t stop us from cheering at the TV screen! This was one of The Walking Dead’sbest bits by far.

12. Carol Kills Lizzie
Season 4, The Grove

A gripping story-line in season 4 was certainly that of Lizzie’s and her obsession with walkers. When she kills her sister and almost does the same to baby Judith, Carol is left with no choice but to kill the young girl. “Just look at the flowers, Lizzie. Just look at the flowers”, Carol tells her before taking her life. A line and high point in the show that fans won’t ever forget.

13. Our Gang Against Terminus
Season 5, No Sanctuary

The Walking Dead sure knows how to open a season. The premiere of the fifth series was indeed an unforgettable moment. Rick, Daryl, Glenn, Bob, plus four randoms are bound, gagged, and kneeling over a trough, waiting to have their throats slit by the madmen/cannibals of Terminus. Right when we think our faves are about to have a dip in the blood bath, Carol sets off an explosion and all hell breaks loose in Terminus, triggering all-out battle between the two peoples.

14. Noah’s Death
Season 5, Spend

During one of their missions, the crew lose yet another short-lived member of their team – and poor Glenn has to watch it all go down. Walkers surround Glenn, Nicholas and Noah whilst stuck in a set of revolving doors. Zombies block both the entrance and exit and Eugene tries to distract the monsters with his van outside, but it’s all too late when they gruesomely pull Noah into the fray and devour him. Watching blood pour out of his body as the walkers gobble him up was disturbing indeed.

15. Rick vs. Pete Anderson
Season 5, Try

Oh we love it when Rick is mad – it always means a great battle is about to ensue. His violent fight with Pete was a gripping scene to watch – seeing the abusive Pete’s face being punched in was a guilty pleasure. Men fly out of the window, blood splatters and Rick gives a long-winded diatribe about the way society works before Michonne suddenly pops up and knocks Rick out mid-sentence to keep him from making the situation way worse.

16. Glenn and the Dumpster
Season 6, Thank You

This moment took us on a roller-coaster ride which ended with blood-splatter, a zombie-fest and a heartbreaking “death”. In their escape from a herd of walkers, Glenn and Nicholas climb onto a dumpster only to be completely surrounded with no way off. It all gets too much for Nicholas as he watches their hands reach up and their teeth gnash at him. Before you know it, he shoots himself, blood splatters in Glenn’s face, and Nicholas falls into the waves of walkers, knocking Glenn down into the masses as well. Seeing volcanoes of blood erupt in front of Glenn really had fans thinking he was a goner – until a few episodes later, of course…

17. Carl’s Eye is Shot
Season 6, No Way Out

Hearts raced as we watched Rick’s gang move stealthily through the crowd of walkers during an attack on Alexandria. Little Sam has a moment of panic, leading walkers to take a bite out of his head. Chaos ensues for the team, Jessie’s screams attract the herd of walkers and all of a sudden she too, is attacked by the horrifying zombies. Just when you think things can’t get more dramatic, Rick suddenly has a gun pointed at him by (douchebag) Ron but just as he presses the trigger, a sword slices through him from behind. Michonne thinks she’s stopped him in time until she realizes Carl’s been shot in the eye. That might have been one of the most exhilarating three minutes in Walking Dead history.

18. Denise’s Untimely Death
Season 6, Twice as Far

Just as Denise builds up the courage to slash and dash a few walkers, she’s wiped out of the show in a blink of an eye (pun intended). As she begins a long, drawn-out monologue, an arrow shoots through Denise’s eye, her speech slurs and she drops dead to the ground. I mean, the Saviors were to blame and all but, rule number one – never stand around preaching philosophy during a zombie apocalypse. Unlike Carl, Denise didn’t survive an arrow to the eye. This was yet another sad death on the show, and things got even tougher to watch as Tara mourned her girlfriend in episodes to come.

Fun fact? In the Walking Dead comics, it’s Abraham who gets shot in the eye! The show decided to give this plot to Denise, instead!

19. RIP Glenn and Abraham
Season 7, The Day Will Come When You Won’t Be

The season 6 finale certainly ended with a bang. Or shall we say bashing? And season 7 picked up exactly where it left off – at Negan’s evil game of Eeny, meeny, miny, moe. It was truly heartbreaking, sickening and simply too gruesome watching Lucille strike straight into Ab’s head, turning his brains into scrambled eggs. Things got even more graphic and heart-wrenching seeing Negan swing Lucille into Glenn’s head and sadistically bludgeoning his skull to pieces – killing not one, but two beloved characters on the show! It was as though The Walking Dead and Game of Throneswere challenging each other on how many characters they can kill off!

20. Rick Fights Winslow
Season 7, New Best Friends

We’ve seen Rick go head to head with hundreds of walkers before but nothing compares to the one he fought in this top episode. In one of his early meetings with Jadis at her junkyard, Rick gets pushed into a pit of trash and is confronted by a walker wearing a helmet and body armor that’s covered with spiky blades. We don’t know about you, but we had to watch this battle through our fingers, especially as Rick’s hands got sliced! It’s not everyday you get to see Rick combat a metal spiked zombie – the show brought something real different to the table!

21. Sasha Surprises Negan
Season 7, The First Day of the Rest of Your Life

It was tough, really tough seeing Sasha go. She was one of the show’s greatest warriors, after all. But her goodbye goes down in history as one of The Walking Dead’sbest moments – it’s even become a hilarious meme! When Negan thinks she’s alive and well in a coffin, little does he know that she’s secretly taken a poison pill and died during their two-hour ride to Alexandria. In the words of Negan, “Holy God damn!”. He opens the coffin door, zombie Sasha leaps out and knocks Negan to the floor. If zombies could talk, I’m sure Sasha would have said “Surprise mother-fu**er”.

22. Negan and Gabriel Team Up
Season 8, The Big Scary U

Soon after we see Negan reveal his most hidden secrets and insecurities to Gabriel, the duo must put all differences aside to escape the enveloping walkers. Reminding us of Glenn and Rick’s scene in season one, the psychotic villain and priest cover their clothes in blood and guts to escape and walk among the zombies. An unusual pairing, a gripping scene and moment that many might have found bizarre, but watchable to say the least.

23. The End of Carl
Season 8, How It’s Gotta Be

It was truly an end of an era seeing Carl go. What is The Walking Dead without its youngest warrior, right? Who is Rick without his son? Carl’s death is certainly ranked as the most shocking and saddest moments on The Walking Dead. Beaten, bruised and finally, bitten by walkers, Carl makes his way to the sewers to join his Alexandria family before his untimely death. Watching the young man say goodbye to his sister, Judith and father, Rick was a tough moment for all. Most viewers had to hold back their tears as they bid farewell to one of the show’s most popular characters.

24. Rick vs Negan
Season 8, Wrath

Negan, with his sarcastic words and degrading comments is finally silenced during an epic battle with Rick. This phenomenal showdown was the most awaited moment since Negan stepped onto the scene, bludgeoning Glenn and Abraham to death. The extended sequence saw Rick and Negan go head to head, resulting in the villain’s neck being slashed, but unfortunately, surviving. The last time we felt such satisfaction watching the enemy lose to our fave characters has to be when the Governor died. Off to your prison cell, Negan…

The end of the Mythbusters in 2017 was the end of an era. After Mythbusters premiered in 2003, it became one of the most popular shows on the Discovery Channel. Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman explored uncountable myths. Soon, they were joined by Tory Belleci, Kari Byron, and Grant Imahara who all very soon became an indispensable part of the show. They handled their own myths apart from the main duo and brought dynamic energy to the show. Even though the Mythbusters busted or confirmed many myths, there are a few that never made it to the screen. We bring to you 10 such Mythbuster snippets which did not make it to the US TV Screens.

1. In 2006, the Mythbusters tested the myth that the cereal boxes themselves are healthier than the cereal inside it. Two groups of mice were given either item. While the Mythbusters were making remarks about it, the mice who ate the cereal box ended up eating each other!

As kids, how many times have we created tantrums for a handful of sugary cereal? There’s no counting, actually! Kids absolutely love the sugary cereals such as fruit loops. But parents have always been critical of the nutritional value of such foods. This seed of suspicion was planted when Paul A. Stitt, a biochemist, published a study in 1982. He mentioned that rats surviving on cereal boxes lasted longer than the rats who were eating only cornflakes.

So Mythbusters went ahead to test this. In a Q&A talk, Adam Savage disclosed their experiment. The team had three categories of lab mice. The first was served normal mice food, the second was served sugary cereal, and the third was served cardboard pellets. Everything was fine for almost five days. But soon after, the team noticed that the mice who were eating the cardboard were getting restless. When they checked on the mice, they found that one of the mice eating cardboard had eaten the other mice in the group!

Due to the graphic animal violence involved in this experiment, Discovery refused to air this episode.  Moreover, they made Adam swear that he would never show the tape to anyone. (12)

2. Mythbusters was supposed to air an episode on how hackable and trackable RFID chips on credit cards are. But they got bullied out of it when credit card companies threatened to boycott their show.

Mythbusters was all ready with an RFID-busting episode when they received a call from Texas Instruments warning them not to air the episode. Adam and Jamie had tested the publicized vulnerabilities of RFID chips and were ready with their verdict for the world. In the Last Hope conference in 2008, Adam Savage recalled, “Texas Instruments comes on along with chief legal counsel for American Express, Visa, Discover, and everybody else (co-host Tory Belleci and a MythBusters producer) were way, way out-gunned.”

The lawyers made it clear that Discovery Channel should back down from airing this segment and never talk about how hackable these chips are. And being a large corporation that relied on revenues from these advertisers, there was nothing that the channel could do.

But the story was a little different according to Texas Instruments. Their spokesperson claimed that the call was not to “threaten” them but was to answer a few technical doubts that the Mythbusters team had. The call comprised of a few product managers and a representative from only one, contactless, payment company. Later, even Adam Savage changed his statement saying, “If I went into the detail of exactly why this story didn’t get filmed, it’s so bizarre and convoluted that no one would believe me, but suffice to say…the decision not to continue on with the RFID story was made by our production company, Beyond Productions, and had nothing to do with Discovery, or their ad sales department.” Makes one think there might be a conspiracy there! (source)

3. There was supposed to be a test that a truck full of liquid oxygen spilled on a roadbed has the potential to turn into a life-threatening bomb. The Mythbusters decided to leave this dangerous one out as they realized that if they are going to spend a ton of money on something that would just explode, it’s better to leave it out!

Image Credit:

On a Reddit AMA, Adam talked about a myth where they were trying to test with a truck full of liquid oxygen. The test was to find out if the oxygen got spilled on a roadbed would it turn the entire road into a life-threatening bomb. The team had already played enough with liquid oxygen to know how dangerous it could be. Adam called it “some of the scariest stuff on earth.”

Liquid oxygen has the potential to turn a simple, oily rag into a bomb. So, the team thought maybe dealing with an entire truck of the material might not be such a good idea. Plus, to shoot the segment, they would have to spend an enormous amount of money. And if at the end of all the hard work everything just explodes, then there might not be a reason for doing it! Considering the danger and unpredictability of liquid oxygen, the Mythbusters took the correct decision. (source)

4. The upside-down race car is a myth that a formula one or IndyCar has so much downforce that it could drive upside down and still hug the road. The Mythbusters have been wanting to do this since the first season, but they never did as the cost for this single myth would exceed the cost of the entire episode.

Image Credit: PNGTree

There is an urban legend that a formula one or an Indycar is built with so much force that they can drive upside down. The cars have so much power that they would just hug the road even when upside down. The Mythbusters team has been wanting to test this myth since the first season. But the problem was that they could never do it on a full scale with a road.

So, the team thought maybe build a tunnel just for this segment. But that too turned out to be impossible as it would cost thousands of dollars for this single segment, exceeding the budget for an entire episode. They then started looking for a wind tunnel but were unable to find one that would go fast enough.

Moreover, no one was willing to give them a formula one or an Indycar to hang it upside down a wind tunnel. And even if they got the car and the tunnel, the budget would still be a problem. Hence, they decided not to shoot this sequence. (source)

5. There was another experiment that involved a baseball player and a train. Basically, the player throws the ball in the opposite direction as the train and at the same speed, then the ball would just drop down straight as the velocity would get canceled.

Image Credit: Wikipedia, Wikipedia

This was an interesting one. So, if a baseball player was traveling in a train and decided to throw a ball out in the opposite direction of the train, what would happen? Let’s say the player decides to throw the ball in the opposite direction as the train and at the same speed as the train. Then, the velocities would just cancel each other and the ball would drop straight down.

The Mythbusters team wanted to test this out but wanted to portray it in their own style. According to Adam Savage, “I actually wanted to do was be the baseball. I have this concept of building this reverse-facing slingshot outside of a bus. You would press the trigger and it would go off, so you would end up – bang – on the side of the road, dead still. For some reason, they won’t let me do it.”

Praise God they did not allow it! (source)

6. The Mythbusters once wanted to test the explosive strength of a bomb made out of commonly available materials. They were successful in building a very powerful explosive with easily available material. Considering how effortless it was, they swore to never release the information. 

Image Credit: ORI

Once the Mythbusters team decided to test out a very common urban legend that explosives can be created out of widely available materials. Surprisingly, the legend turned out to be true. The team also found out that the materials they used were very easily available. Since such easily obtainable materials can lead to a powerful explosion, the production team decided to not showcase the snippet.

It was wise on their part as it would have been really irresponsible to have taught the people how to make bombs. The team decided to destroy all the footage that they shot and they agreed never to talk about it again. Years later, Adam Savage contacted DARPA, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, regarding their discovery. DARPA was requesting information from the public regarding unknown but potential bomb risks. (source)

7. Adam Savage of Mythbusters wanted to test out the myth on pumpkin duck hunting. But the narrative for the particular episode turned out to be so long that he and the team decided to scrap the myth from the episode and never aired it.

Image Credit: Flickr, Wikipedia

In a CNET Magazine interview, Adam Savage revealed that they wanted to test out an urban legend but never got around to do it. He said, “Apparently if you want to hunt ducks, a great method is to float pumpkins in a duck pond so the ducks become acclimatized to pumpkins floating around. Then, you put a pumpkin on your head, presumably with a couple of eyeholes in it, and you swim up to the ducks. They don’t even notice because it’s just another pumpkin.”

Although Adam was very keen to wear a pumpkin and catch a duck, they would not have been able to show the same on television due to the animal rights violation. Plus, it would have been difficult to shoot. So they started putting the difficult parts into narratives. They ended up with so many narratives that it was difficult to accommodate the same into the episode. (12)

8. In the unaired 2010 episode “Testing Grant’s Bones,” Jamie Hyneman announced that they would be performing a series of experiments to find out how strong Grant Imahara’s bones are. The sequence was so cruel that Discovery refused to air the episode.

Image Credit: Wikipedia

If aired, this episode might have led to many casualties across the world. The year was 2010 and the episode was to be named “Testing Grant’s Bones.” Jamie Hyneman, one of the co-hosts of the show, announced that they would be testing out how strong are Grant Imahara’s bones. Grant was another co-host in the show.

According to the information available on the Internet, Jamie brought a sledgehammer for the experiment. He then started hitting Grant’s legs repeatedly. It is said that the experiment shattered Grant’s femur and Jamie did not stop even when Grant asked him to. Eventually, he passed out from the pain.

Discovery Channel refused to play this episode on air which was the right decision on their part. Jamie apologized for his actions and claimed that he thought Grant’s bones would have been able to resist the blows. Grant went through an emergency kneecap transplant and had to go through vigorous rounds of physical therapy. He returned to the show six months after the incident. (source)

9. The MythBusters Teeth Challenge was more of an inside joke than a challenge. In the episode, the Mythbusters tried to confirm/bust the myth that Adam had the brownest teeth. This was not aired in the US.

Image Credit: Dental Health Tips

This specific experiment was also known as “Which has the whitest teeth.” This was more an inside joke. Apparently, the team had received numerous emails from viewers across the world complaining about Adam’s brown teeth. So, the team took the myth that “Of all the MythBusters, Adam is the one with the brownest teeth.”

To perform the experiment, Kari had to check the teeth of Jamie, Adam, Tory, and Grant. The first result was that Jamie had the brownest teeth. So, the myth was busted at first. But then Jamie went ahead and got his teeth bleached! So after this, Adam indeed had the brownest teeth. The myth was first busted and then confirmed.

This segment was not aired in the Discovery US version but was aired on the Discovery Europe version. (source)

10. Once the team filled a van with gas containers and rigged them for a slow leak. They were testing the myth that the van would explode after it receives a signal from its keyless remote. The myth was confirmed in the first try and gave the team no chance to expand on the myth’s background or the processes involved.

Image Credit: YouTube

This segment was called the “Vanishing Van.” The team loaded a van with flammable gas containers. They then created a few leaks in those containers. They wanted to test whether the van would explode in case it was triggered by a signal from a keyless remote.

The experiment turned out to be “too” successful. In the first try, the team was able to shatter the van to bits and pieces. But everything happened so fast that they never got a chance to either record it properly or even provide the explanation behind it. So they decided to not air it instead. (source)

The Dark History Behind 'The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air' Most People Don't Know


The Dark History Behind 'The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air' Most People Don't Know

In 1990, NBC took a chance on the young, Grammy-winning hip-hop artist Will Smith and The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Though the show worked its way into everyone's hearts with its thoughtful plot lines, infectious theme song, and Smith's raw charisma, the cast of Fresh Prince were decidedly not chilling out, maxing, relaxing all cool. They were busy writing petty notes in a Mean Girl's-style "Burn Book" and feuding with their fellow actors.

Much of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air's behind-the-scenes drama dealt with the cast's grievances involving the actor playing the original Aunt Viv. Over three seasons, Janet Hubert failed to see eye-to-eye with the show's biggest stars and had her hand in the juiciest tidbits of Fresh Prince drama. A whopping 22 years later, most of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air's biggest secrets have already been aired. But these dark Fresh Prince stories also paint a picture of a rap star who struggled with his newfound TV stardom amid feuds with his onscreen family, record label, and even the US government.


12 Award-Winning TV Shows That Got Away With Not Explaining Major Plot Points

12 Award-Winning TV Shows That Got Away With Not Explaining Major Plot Points -


Award-winning television shows always seem to have unexplained plot points. For some reason, the greatest shows refuse to answer the questions fans want to know the most. These grave oversights in storytelling aren't exclusive to TV either. Some Oscar-winning movies have unexplained moments as well.

Sure, there are a ton of shows where characters live above their means. But those inconsistencies are examples of TV tropes, not glaring plot flaws. Adding a new character in a series finale without outlining who they are or where they come from is a better example of an unexplained TV show moment. These occurrences are way more frequent than you might think.



19 Disappointing TV Shows Based on Movies

19 Disappointing TV Shows Based on Movies -

Hollywood seldom has any original ideas. In fact, I’m convinced that they hate them.  Innovation is rarely even thought of, only talked about in hushed tones. They’d much rather roll the dice on a pointless remake/reboot, rather than take a chance on a property that could be fantastic. It’s even worse, when they try to turn a popular movie into a sitcom, on a tv budget, with B-list actors and unknowns. For every great TV adaptation such as M*A*S*H, Buffy, Fargo & Parenthood, there are colossal duds. Like these ones.


Dirty Dancing (1988-1989)This show basically followed the same plot of the movie, showing the romance between Johnny and Baby, during that fateful summer of ’63, but much less dancing.Filled with B-list actors, and a super-young Melora Hardin (Jan from The Office), it really didn’t do much for audiences. We know how the story ends, and apparently, so did the network. It lasted 11 episodes.


Clueless (1996-99)Originally, the show was pretty good, and other than recasting Alicia Silverstone with Rachel Blanchard, the rest of the core cast returned to the show.It had some entertainment value when it first premiered, but by the time it hit the third season, audiences were tuning out.

Warner Bros./ABC

Casablana (1955-1956)It’s never a good idea to try to recreate one of the greatest films of all time, for a tv audience, on a tv budget. ABC launched this adaptation to capitalize on the cold war, but it fell incredibly flat.The lead, Charles McGraw, was horribly miscast and it was missing that beautiful chemistry between Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman. It lasted 10 episodes.

CBS Television

The Bad News Bears (1979-1980)For many baseball fans, the original is a sacred film and should’t be touched. CBS didn’t care and turned it into a Saturday evening tv show, with none of the original cast.It was fortunate enough to get a second season, but then it lost huge ratings when the network decided to play with time slots and fans just gave up.

20th Century Fox Television

9 to 5 (1982-1983)The original film was an amazing comedy with Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin and Dolly Parton. While it was produced by Fonda, none of the original ladies reprised their roles.They tried to make it work by casting Dolly Parton’s younger sister in the role of Doralee, but she just couldn’t cut it.

ABC Family

Ten Things I Hate About You (2009)A decade is a long time to wait to develop a tv show based off of a teen classic. Especially when you don’t cast anyone with the same caliber as Heath Ledger and Julia Stiles.So instead of calling it a remake of the show, it became a ‘reimagining’ with the hopes of every episode being a John-Hughes-style romp through adolescence. It ended up feeling like a cheap mockery and was cancelled after a season.

Buena Vista Television

Honey, I Shrunk the Kids: The TV Show (1997-2000)This one was actually half decent. While we couldn’t get Rick Moranis as the lead, his replacement, Peter Scolari, was a dead-ringer. And the show didn’t just remake the movie’s plot, but put the family on various adventures.Also, the effects got a lost better by the late ’90’s, so it looked a lot better than the film. But the plot contrivances got tired after a while, so it got canned after 3 seasons.


Bill & Ted’s Excelled Adventures (1992)Someone in Hollywood thought this would be a great idea to show off the continuing adventures of the goofy duo. What they neglected to understand, was the dynamic between Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter, made the film.The show premiered as a summer series in ’92, with two complete unknowns, and it killed the franchise. It didn’t even last a month, before the plug was pulled.I also fear that these two jokers ruined the franchise, which is why we had to wait 17 years for the resolution of the Wyld Stallyns and their universe-saving song.

NBC Universal

Weird Science (1994-1998)Containing a similar plot as the John Hughes film from a decade earlier, this show wasn’t all that bad. Frankly, I found this version of Lisa hotter than the original, and the hijinks were pretty funny.The show got 5 seasons before getting cancelled, and it never quite captured the charm of the original film.

Paramount Televison

Ferris Bueller (1990)Whoever thought this would be a good idea, deserves to be left on the side of a California highway with a half-filled bottle of lukewarm water. The show was supposed to be about the “real-life” version of Ferris, and he wasn’t pleased about how he was portrayed by Matthew Broderick in the film. Huh?At least we got to see a young Jennifer Aniston take on the role of Ferris’ sister, Jeannie. The show was cancelled after one season.

CBS/Universal TV

Fast Times (1986)Based off of 1982’s Fast Times at Ridgemont High, this was the director’s attempt at recreating the magic, by sanitizing it and making it a sitcom.Containing a cast of Patrick Dempsey, Courtney Thorne-Smith and Ray Walston, it had some potential. Except, it felt like no one understood the teen culture of the time and the show just felt weird.It only lasted 7 episodes.

Warner Bros. TV

Rush Hour (2016)What made that move series so fantastic, was the dynamic between Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker. Losing those two, and turning the premise into a semi-comical police drama didn’t really do the concept any favours.Plus, the actor playing Carter, tried to be Chris Tucker, instead of making the character his own, which made us miss the movies more. The show got scrapped after 13 episodes.


Working Girl (1990)This show was already doomed before it aired, because it was built as a mid-season replacement for another failed one. The plot was the same as the movie, with a super-fresh Sandra Bullock taking on the Melanie Griffith role.Seems like everyone loved her, but not the show and it got canned 13 episodes in.

Sony Pictures TV

My Big Fat Greek Life (2003)Given that the film was a monster at the box office, the creator and lead actress, Nia Vardalos, wanted to show off Toula’s life as a married woman. Most of the supporting cast came back, and her husband was recast.But the magic wasn’t there and the show got scrapped midway through the first season.


Uncle Buck (1990)If there’s one rule you need to abide by in Hollywood, it’s to never try to live up to the genius of a great comedian. In this case; don’t ever try to be John Candy. You just can’t. While the new actor, Kevin Meaney, is funny in his own way, he lacks the sincerity that Candy had.The show was also up against Full House, so it never really stood a chance and bailed after 16 episodes.


Serpico (1977)Four years after Al Pacino starred in the film, a show was commissioned, to delve deeper into the life of NYPD detective Frank Serpico.Except, audiences hated it. The casting was awful, and while the new lead, David Birney wasn’t horrible, he wasn’t Pacino. The show lasted only 16 episodes.


Delta House (1979)After the stellar success of National Lampoon’s Animal House, a majority of the original cast wanted to take their shenanigans to the small screen. It was good to see the return of D-Day and Flounder, and even had Bluto’s brother, named Jim “Blotto” Blutarsky as a character.The show was also notorious for giving Michelle Pfeiffer her first starring role as “The Bombshell” but didn’t last longer than 13 episodes, due to the fact that is was a Family rated sequel to an R-rated film.


Planet of the Apes (1974)This franchise has been hugely popular across movies, books and comics, so it makes sense that a tv show would work too. CBS picked up the show, which pretty much followed the plot of the movies.Each episode was 50 min, but it felt dragged out and far too slow to be engaging. Plus the effects and makeup were severely lacking on a tv budget, so only 14 episodes were created, and none of them ever aired.

Someone save me.



SPOILERS for Game of Thrones seasons 1-7There’s been a lot of death in Game of Thrones, an estimated 150,966 deaths to be more clear. That estimate came from Reidar Lystad and Benjamin Brown, injury epidemiologists at Macquarie University who studied all 67 episodes to try and prove if you can scientifically predict who will live and die in the show’s final season.Let’s take a look at their result:

The 150,966 deaths come from the large scale battles, massacres, and…you konw…dragons fucking up the place. So the researchers stuck with named characters for these results.Total Named Characters: 330Dead Named Characters: 186 (56.4%)Shortest Time Alive: 11 secsLongest Time Alive: 57 hrs 15 minThe Probability of Surviving 1 Hr: 0.86%

#1 Cause of Death: neck wounds and decapitations – 40 (21.5%)Neck Wounds: 26 (14%)Decapitation: 13 (7%)Crushing of the Head: 1 (0.5%)

#2 Cause of Death: open wound of the torso – 27 (14.5%)Open Chest Wound: 21 (11.3%)Open Abdomen, Lower Back, Pelvis Wound: 6 (3.2%)Between 1 and 2, there are discrepancies between the 25 deaths involving Open Wounds of Multiple Body Regions, and 2 Crushing Injuries Involving Multiple Body Regions.

#3 Cause of Death: Burns and Corrosions – 22 (11.8%)Burns of Multiple Body Regions: 22 (11.8%)(Yeah, it seems repetitive to type that out twice, but I like uniformity)

So we know how we’re going to die in Westeros, but who lives? Who’s more likely to end up on the Iron Throne?

The 3 big categories the researchers sorted by were:

Male: 237 | Female: 93 | Highborn: 104 | Lowborn: 226 | Loyal: 285 | Switched Allegiances: 45 |

The top two contenders for surviving the series are the Stark sisters, Arya and Sansa. The best thing in this show you can be is a Highborn Female who has Switched Allegiances.Arya, born of the house stark, and switched between being part of the Faceless Men of Bravos, a love/hate relationship with The Hound, and has always played her allegiance with Sansa on the fence.

Sansa is in a similar boat with Arya, also born of the House Stark and jumping between the Starks, Lannisters, and Littlefinger for a good while before coming back to House Stark.

My boy Tyrion Lannister may be a male, but he is still highborn who has been hand to almost every single ruler you can imagine. Dude’s been through some shit.

Does Jon Snow even really count considering he already died? Either way, he is of House Stark and House Targaryen and jumped between the Night’s Watch, the Free Folk, became King in the North, and has now bent the knee to Daenerys.

Chances are slim for everyone’s favorite blonde, Daenerys of the House Targaryen, the First of Her Name, The Unburnt, Queen of the Andals, the Rhoynar and the First Men, Queen of Meereen, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Protector of the Realm, Lady Regent of the Seven Kingdoms, Breaker of Chains and Mother of Dragons.And with a name like that good, let her die. That’s annoying. While female and Highborn, those who have stayed loyal to their goals/causes/houses have such a higher rate of death that it could be what does her in.

The same goes for the current Queen of the Iron Throne, Cersei Lannister. And honestly, if I want anyone to die it’s her. I want Jamie to slice her down as his 3rd act of Kingslaying (I count Ned Stark) and avenge everything she has done to him and Tyrion.

The research also states that all this could really mean nothing. It’s Game of Thronesafter all, anything can happen. Regardless, we have 57 days until the season 8 premiere and I have 63.5 hours of show to watch again to prepare.

12 Objectively Bad Decisions 'The Walking Dead' Creators And Producers Made


12 Objectively Bad Decisions 'The Walking Dead' Creators And Producers Made

Like the flesh-hungry, shambling walkers that populate the series, The Walking Dead (TWD) cannot rest in peace. It doesn’t matter how many missteps they take or what narrative nadir the series meets, it will shuffle on in one iteration or another until it completely falls apart.

Initially the series was the perfect blend of horror and action, and its concept meant it would be able to tell different types of stories with interesting characters whenever things needed to be spiced up, but that’s not what happened.

Around Season 2, the series became a source of constant frustration for TWD fans. As the show meandered and lurched on with no sense of an endgame the stories became dull, characters were sidelined, and new production teams rotated in again and again. In short, TWD turned into a real drag.

Even though the series has managed to include some interesting moments in its later seasons it feels like the creators can’t help but shoot themselves in the foot every few episodes. Even if you still enjoy the show, you have to admit some of the creators’ decisions are really bad. Obviously, spoilers about TWD are to follow.

Reality Show Cameramen Describe The Wildest Things They’ve Seen Behind The Scenes -

Camera operators are the unsung heroes of reality television. In reality competition shows, they are immersed in high pressure situations with production teams that are understaffed. On other shows like Teen MomIntervention, or Cops, they are forced to sit idly while people put themselves (or sometimes their children) in danger. They also have to deal with all of the crazy production secrets of reality TV and behind-the-scenes drama.

Most people who work on reality TV shows have to sign what's known as a non-disclosure agreement, meaning that can't reveal certain information to the public that might spoil the show for viewers. But, under the anonymity of Reddit, reality TV camera operators tell all. One camera operator from the show Teen Mom even deleted all of his comments and account just hours after doing an AMA. Thank goodness for internet sleuths, who were able to retrieve his responses so we could find out who are the worst Teen Moms.

32 Awesome Facts About Two and a Half Men

32 Awesome Facts About Two and a Half Men -



“Despite falling off the wagon, a rocky marriage, looming felony charges and possible time behind bars, he managed to secure a massive raise [to $1.8 million an episode], fully three times what I was being paid.” — Jon Cryer, reflecting on the incredulous story of his former costar, Charlie Sheen

Two and a Half Men, which ran on CBS for 12 seasons (from September 22, 2003 to February 19, 2015) was a popular American sitcom about two adult brothers living together in Malibu with one brother’s son. It originally starred Charlie Sheen, Jon Cryer and Angus T. Jones. When Charlie Sheen very famously left the series over behavior issues, Ashton Kutcher joined the cast. Although the show has being battling some rough seas, it remains one of the highest rated cable sit-coms. Enjoy these facts about Two and a Half Men.

32. Continuity rules

Jon Cryer, who plays single dad Alan Harper, has appeared in every single episode of the show’s 12-year run. He is the only actor on the show who can lay such a claim.

31. Charlie in stitches

Charlie Sheen has a scar on his chin. He reportedly acquired that facial feature during the filming of No Man’s Land in 1987. A prop explosive accidentally detonated, and shrapnel ripped into his chin. The actor required eight stitches.

30. If you don’t have anything nice to say…

In spite of the fact that the show was originally scheduled to run through the 2012 season, CBS and Warner Bros. decided to halt production on February 24, 2011, after made “disparaging comments” about the series’ creator and executive producer Chuck Lorre. Sheen’s contract was terminated on March 7.

Getty Images

29. The confusion around Sheen

Following a February 2010 announcement that Sheen was entering drug rehabilitation, the producers put the show on hiatus for a month. People magazine reported that Sheen was considering leaving the show on April 1, 2010, reportedly because he rejected CBS’s offer of $1 million per episode. Still, he eventually declared that he’d be back for two more seasons, and various sources reported that Sheen had signed a contract for two years at $1.78 million per episode.

28. When things went off the rails

In his 2015 memoir, So That Happened, Jon Cryer reveals that Sheen had been “a pretty grounded, sober married guy” at the start of Two and A Half Men in 2003, but things changed during the second season of the show. At that point, both lead actors found themselves single, as Sheen’s marriage to Denise Richards failed and Cryer split from his wife Sarah Trigger.

27. Charlie’s fall

During a rehearsal to choreograph some movement for a scene near the end of his tenure, Charlie Sheen purportedly asked the director whether he could, instead, just “stand next to this couch?” It was, Cryer later reflected in his memoir, a request designed to keep the troubled actor steady for the duration of the scene. In January, 2011, at the taping before a live studio audience of what would be Sheen’s last appearance on Two And A Half Men, Cryer recalls that his co-star simply couldn’t remember his lines.

Getty Images

26. Raking it in

Between May 2010 and May 2011, actor Charlie Sheen earned $40 million. That, said Forbes magazine, made him the highest-paid American actor at the time.


25. Going one better

In 2012, Ashton Kutcher replaced Sheen not only on the show, but in his ranking as the highest-paid American actor. Kutcher received $700,000 per episode to start. Between June 2012 and June 2013, he earned an estimated US$24 million, which tallies out at US$750,000 per episode. For his part, Cryer was no slouch, ranking as the second-highest paid star with earnings of US$600,000–$700,000 per episode.

24. Angus makes it, too

For a time, Jones was also a TV moneymaking superlative. In addition to a US$500,000 signing bonus, he made US$300,000 per episode and was the highest-paid child TV actor.

Getty Images

23. The billionaire count

When Lyndsey asks Walden how many billionaires there are in the world, Walden tells her that there are 1,226. That number, according to Forbes magazine’s May 7, 2012, annual review, was the correct figure when the episode aired. Just 10 days later, however, Forbes subsequently stated that there were 1,426 billionaires in the world.


22. What could have been

When the producers were casting for Friends, actor Jon Cryer submitted a video audition for consideration that was recorded in London. He was interested in the Chandler Bing role. Unfortunately, the tape didn’t arrive in time. The rest, as Matthew Perry could tell you, is history.

Getty Images

21. In on the in jokes

In season 9, when Lyndsey commented, “That casting director said he could get me on Melrose Place,” it’s a private lob to Courtney Thorne-Smith’s role as Alison Parker on that show from 1992 to 1997.

Two and a Half Men, Chuck Lorre Productions

20. The call of the church

Angus T. Jones, who famously played the show’s eponymous half man, Jake Harper, said in a November 2012 interview that he’d converted to Christianity and joined a Seventh Day Adventist church. More than that, he laid into the morals of the show, and even urged viewers to stop watching it. Sheen issued a public statement to respond to the swirling controversy in which he claimed that “Jones’s outburst isn’t an isolated incident but rather a symptom of the toxic environment surrounding the show.”

Getty Images

19. Recanting the rant

Just one day after actor Jones lost it on his money maker, he retracted his statement. In a public apology for his remarks, he explained that he “cannot address everything that has been said or right every misstatement or misunderstanding.”


18. And the winner is

The show and its participants were lauded with recognition throughout its run. These accolades included a 2009 best supporting actor Emmy and a 2012 best lead actor Emmy for Jon Cryer, and a 2012 outstanding guest actress Emmy for Kathy Bates.

Getty Images

17. The 2012 highlight

At the 2012 Emmys, Two and a Half Men was nominated for four awards. The show copped three of them, the most Emmys it ever won in a single year.

Getty Images

16. Cryer’s start

Jon Cryer’s first IMDb credit is for No Small Affair. He starred as a 16-year-old amateur photographer in this 1984 comedy-drama that launched the careers of Jennifer Tilly and Tim Robbins, and starred Demi Moore.

No Small Affair, Delphi II Productions

15. Duckie’s first r0deo

Before Two and a Half Men made Jon Cryer’s a household name, the actor was best known for his 1986 turn as Phil “Duckie” Dale, the good-guy romantic in love with Molly Ringwald’s Andie Walsh in Pretty in Pink. In season 9 of the show, Alan ironically says at one point, “When I was in high school I was dating a poster of Molly Ringwald.”

Pretty In Pink , Paramount Pictures

14. Life imitates art

In one episode, Ashton Kutcher was said to have been an underwear model. In real life, Kutcher actually did model underwear for a time. More than that, he also had a job modeling underwear in one episode of That 70s Show.

Getty Images

13. Life imitates art 2

When Charlie leaves a message from his cell phone in a scene in season 5, he’s pretending he’s at home watching TV. When a helicopter flies by, he fudges it and claims the noise is from the movie, Apocalypse Now. Apocalypse Now starred Charlie Sheen’s real-life father, Martin Sheen.


12. Oops

In season 8’s episode 12, Alan claims he’s meeting Lyndsey and her friends for drinks at a Bennigan’s in Encino. But eagle-eyed viewers quickly uncovered that, at the time of this episode’s airing, the only Bennigan’s left in California following its 2008 bankruptcy were in Santa Clara and San Diego. It’s as if the show isn’t actually real or something.


11. The once and future Bertha

When Conchata Ferrell, who plays the role of Bertha, was originally cast, it was only as a recurring character. But once the producers noted how much the audience enjoyed her, they upped her appearances into regular cast member status.


10. Keeping it in the family

Charlie’s real-life father, Martin Sheen, appeared on the show as Rose’s father, who ends up stalking Evelyn.

Getty Images

9. Faking it

Although Charlie Sheen’s character—Charlie Harper—was said to play the piano and make a living writing commercial jingles, and the show featured several scenes with him tickling the ivories, in reality, Sheen couldn’t play a bit. Dennis C. Brown composed all the jingles while Sheen’s character pretended to play the piano.


8. The Sheen bounce

After his controversial and unceremonious departure from Two and a Half Men, Sheen found a soft landing. The actor went on to star in a new TV comedy for FX called Anger Management that ran from 2012 to 2014.

Getty Images

7. Drawing from the script

The title of every Two and a Half Men episode comes from a line in the script. It’s a party game to watch the show and identify when they drop the title.

Getty Images

6. A record of success

The show’s creator Chuck Lorre has more on his CV than just Two and a Half Men. He is also the TV mastermind behind such comic television hits as The Big Bang Theory, Grace Under Fire, Roseanne and Dharma and Greg.


5. Look no further

Jones was the only child actor that the producers saw for the part of Jake. After seeing Jones play Dennis Quaid’s son in The Rookie, Chuck Lorre invited him to audition. He gave him the job on the spot.

Getty Images

4. Angus and addiction

Angus T. Jones confessed to being an acid and marijuana user.


3. Joe’s son

In a 2000 episode, Jon Cryer played Kevin Swanson on The Family Guy. The episode was called “A Hero Sits Next Door.”


2. Busted

In an episode in season 8, Charlie suggests Alan try to fuel his masturbation habits. Later, he suggests visiting Michelle’s daughter’s bathroom-cam website, But when you visit both of those URLs, they redirect to a page that displays the text, “The writers of Two and a Half Men think you are one sick puppy.”


1. The awful truth

In 2004, Cryer started dating a woman named Stephanie. When he brought her to the set and introduced her to Sheen, Sheen acted as though he’d never met her before. Later, though, he confessed to his costar that he’d actually dated his new girlfriend, but had broken up when she’d refused to participate in a threesome. Upon learning this news, Cryer ditched the girl.

9 Surprising Stories From Behind The Scenes of 'Step by Step'

9 Surprising Stories From Behind The Scenes of 'Step by Step' -

In a Los Angeles area lab in 1991, sitcom executives put The Brady Bunch and Full House into a petri dish, and Step by Step was born. It ran for seven years, and although it won’t be revived on Netflix anytime soon, it was certainly charming. Fans loved the wacky tale of a widow and divorcee who met on vacation and got married without telling their kids. The plot paved way for seasons of the charming misunderstandings and shenanigans that ensue when two families are blended.

The show emphasized love between the Foster and Lambert families, but behind the shiny facade of '90s TV, things were a little darker. From abuse convictions to money troubles, the cast faced their fair share of grim issues.


16 Dark Stories From Behind The Scenes Of Boy Meets World

16 Dark Stories From Behind The Scenes Of Boy Meets World


Boy Meets World is one of the most memorable TV sitcoms of the '90s. Who can resist Shawn and Cory's epic bro-mance or watching Topanga and Cory's relationship grow from puppy love to real-deal marriage? The beloved show is still syndicated on TV over 10 years after the series aired its final episode in 2000. Much like fellow '90s teen sitcom Saved By The Bell, the show didn't go without its fair share of controversy. Dark stories depict a reality that's a stark contrast from the characters' lives at John Adams High School.

Behind the scenes show an unstable environment where child actors were hired and fired faster than the cast could keep up with. There were bad haircuts, DUIs, and even a couple misdemeanor crimes (that thankfully went unnoticed by the network). When the show ended in 2000, viewers were left with a number of character inconsistencies, questions, and disappearances.



11 Dark Secrets Behind The Scenes Of 'Everybody Loves Raymond' That Will Make You Hate It

11 Dark Secrets Behind The Scenes Of 'Everybody Loves Raymond' That Will Make You Hate It


Everybody Loves Raymond is remembered fondly by many for its relatable comedy and honest insights into the inner workings of marriage and family. The show ran for nine years, and as you can imagine, a few crazy stories exist from the set of Everybody Loves Raymond. While some of those tales are lighthearted, there are also some dark Everybody Loves Raymond stories.

To some, this may not be surprising, as there was a whole lot of anger in the show - the family dysfunction was much more in-your-face than on shows like Home Improvement, where the discord was buried in subtext. Still, a few of the actors got themselves into some shady situations, and there was even a point when Ray Ramano's co-stars were not so much in love with him (though he was probably used to such treatment, as fans don't seem to like him, either).

Everybody Loves Raymond behind the scenes was full of tension, whether it was due to a pay disparity between cast members or secret addictions and illnesses among the actors and crew. Not everything was gloom and doom, though; there are straight-up weird Everybody Loves Raymond facts that will surprise even the most die-hard fans.

The Behind The Scenes Drama Of Two And A Half Men Is Even Weirder Than You Imagined

The Behind The Scenes Drama Of Two And A Half Men Is Even Weirder Than You Imagined -


Given the reputation of its star, Charlie Sheen, it should come as no surprise that Two and a Half Men has some dark behind-the-scenes stories (though even shows as seemingly innocent as Seinfeld had their own issues).

Sheen's character Charlie Harper imitated his real-life counterpart fairly closely. Harper was a womanizing, substance-abusing gambler who would eventually meet an untimely death, but it didn't quite capture just how monstrous some of Sheen's alleged actions were. Perhaps even more surprising is costar Jon Cryer's affection for Sheen, which he spoke about at length in his memoir, revealing some pretty shocking things about himself in the process. Somehow, Ashton Kutcher was the most boring dude on the show when he joined the cast in Season 9.

If you still care about one of the most overrated shows of all time, be warned; there are spoilers for the series finale ahead.





14 Behind The Scenes Secrets From The Set Of 'Cheers'

14 Behind The Scenes Secrets From The Set Of 'Cheers'


There are few sitcoms more beloved than Cheers. The show's behind-the-scenes secrets reveal a fascinating world that lent to the funny, timely episodes. During its original run, bits and pieces of the offscreen drama behind Cheers made it into the press - namely, Shelley Long's clashes with other cast members and producers - but the drama doesn't negate the outright magic and undeniable chemistry this group of people created.

Cheers premiered on NBC on September 30, 1982, and ran for 11 seasons. It chronicled the professional and personal lives of a Boston bar's staff and a few select patrons. Despite the often-wacky hijinks in which the characters got involved, there was always a core of reality and authenticity running throughout the series. Show writers visited real bars and incorporated some of the dialogue they overhead into the show. But Cheers couldn't have had the legacy it has today without its characters and cast: Sam and Diane, Frasier and Lilith, Cliff and Norm, Rebecca and Woody and Carla.

Here's How Your Favorite Canceled TV Shows Were Really Supposed To End

Here's How Your Favorite Canceled TV Shows Were Really Supposed To End



There is a risk every TV lover takes when letting a new show into their hearts, and that is the chance that they will be canceled after just one season or even worse... canceled before they have the opportunity to finish their respective stories, leaving intended finales for canceled shows collecting dust on a writer's hard drive.

Shows are canceled for a myriad of reasons - stars leave, ratings drop, and the like - and unfortunately, it means dedicated viewers will never get to find out how those canceled TV shows were supposed to end.

Fans of shows long gone may still be frustrated decades after the program was canceled. Fortunately, there are showrunners and creative executives who were equally disappointed over the cancellations, so they have decided to share with fans what would have happened in the TV finales you'll never see.

So without any further ado, here are some of the most notable TV shows that didn't get to live up to their full potential, and how the intended finales for those canceled shows would have brought the shows to their organic conclusions.



To Catch a Predator Host Chris Hansen Arrested In Connecticut

To Catch a Predator Host Chris Hansen Arrested In Connecticut -



Former Dateline NBC and To Catch a Predator host Chris Hansen recently found himself on the wrong side of the investigation after failing to pay an outstanding $13,000 dollar bill.

Police apparently warned hansen of the consequences of not paying the bill and Hansen turned himself in to Connecticut police Monday on charges of issuing a bad check.

According to police Hansen allegedly ordered 300+ ceramic mugs, 280 T-shirts and 600+ vinyl decals from a company called Promotional Sales Limited. Hansen received an invoice for $12,998.05 in September 2017.

The company's owner Peter Psichopaidas waited until April of 2018 before filing a complaint, saying the check he received as payment for the order had bounced.
Hansen apologized to the owner and offered to make partial payments, but the owner sys the money never came.  According to an arrest affidavit, Hansen was bailed out after agreeing to give a statement to police.



The charges came after Hansen was warned he could be arrested for larceny, according to investigator Sean Coughlin.

“I told Chris … that nearly $13,000 is a lot of money to a ‘mom-and-pop’ business and it is not fair that he accepted the material but hasn’t paid for it”.

According to Hansen he had previously offered coffee mugs and T-shirts as a way to attract investors to a 2015 Kickstarter campaign intended to revive “To Catch a Predator,” which NBC canceled.

The campaign raised over $80,000 dollars and saw several new episodes titled 'Hansen vs. Predator".
