Game of (Porcelain) Thrones: The 16 Most Iconic TV Toilet Moments

Sun, 15 Jun 2014 05:00:00 UT

Tywin's fate on Sunday's Game of Thrones finale was pretty crappy, but it was far from the first time a toilet took center stage on TV. Check out TV's most outrageous deaths Since making its television debut in 1957, the toilet has played countless important roles on everything from Sex and the City to The Sopranos to Golden Girls. Sometimes the toilet has aided in a key dramatic moment (Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad), while other times it was used for simple sh--s and giggles (The League).

Finale Postmortem: Director Breaks Down the "Anti-Game of Thrones" Death

Sun, 15 Jun 2014 05:00:00 UT

Read at your own risk! Trust Game of Thrones to put its own sick twist on Father's Day. On Sunday's big finale, several characters bit the dust, but no one died with less dignity than Tywin Lannister (Charles Dance), who perished while on the toilet after being shot by his son Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) with a crossbow. Director Alex Graves, who was also responsible for directing Joffrey's Purple Wedding fatality and Oberyn Martell's gory demise earlier this season, took a different approach to Twyin's final scene. There's a guy sitting down and rather [than] it being how much blood or how much gore or how shocking it was, it's actually about how futile and humiliating it is that this pillar of strength and arrogance who has had an enormous purpose in the War of the Five Kings is killed on the toilet, a death he would not be happy with. Was there anything tricky about that Tywin-Tyrion scene, such as the logistics of shooting in a confined space? The entire thing was about Charles' and Peter's performances before the moment and really delivering a face-off that I've known about for over a year, Peter has known about it since he's signed on to the show and [showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss] have been waiting to make it for something like a decade. The key to that scene was capturing the unfolding panic that results in her death. Was there consideration about the emotional toll it would take on the actors while shooting? How did you balance the action of that attack with all the more mystical elements? The two hardest things about that sequence were: 1 Feeling confident that we could deliver a skeletal soldier attack that would make Ray Harryhausen proud, who had died right when were starting to do it. [Production designer] Deb Riley had to order hundreds and hundreds of tree roots ... Basically, the art department went in and laid out and sculpted out the shape of the cave until the form fit into what h



24 Celebrates 200 Episodes: Will Heller Actually Turn Himself Over to Margot?

Sun, 15 Jun 2014 05:00:00 UT

Look back on 24's most memorable moments Added executive producer Howard Gordon: It represents over a decade of all of our lives. ... In fitting fashion, Monday's episode (9/8c, Fox) is a powerhouse hour. [...] the two men spearheading the Live Another Day chapter, executive producers Evan Katz and Manny Coto, say they weren't even aware of the milestone when they conceived the episode. (They blame fuzzy math skills and the TV movie for complicating matters.) "We really were not conscious of the milestone of it at all, frankly," Katz tells TVGuide.com. Check out the 24 greatest TV action heroes Indeed, the centerpiece of the episode involves President Heller (William Devane) agreeing to hand himself over to terrorist Margot Al-Harazi (Michelle Fairley) in order to stop her continued attacks on London. Could this act change people's opinion of him? "I don't think it was to counterbalance [the weakness]," Katz says. Whatever happens with Heller and Margot, Jack will also have to answer for his role in this situation to Heller's daughter, and Jack's former lover, Audrey (Kim Raver). Get scoop on your favorite returning shows But could this most recent action mean the end of Jack and Audrey's relationship? "Jack, unfortunately, loses a lot, and sacrifices many of the few people he's come to love and who've come to trust him," Gordon said. [...] it seems the saga might end with Live Another Day - at least for now.
