A look at the action behind the action of Pixels.
A heaping dose of 1980s arcade nostalgia, featuring everyone from evil Donkey Kong to Game of Thrones alum Peter Dinklage.
Game of Thrones wasn’t the only genre show to earn multiple Emmy nods.
Peter Dinklage, best known to us fantasy fans as Tyrion Lannister (or as specific fans of Tyrion call him, “Tyrion Effin’ Lannister”), is branching out of Westeros into the dystopian Marvel future. The actor has joined the cast of the upcoming movie, X-Men: Days of Future Past.

And I want to convince you to start watching now, because it’s not only one of the best series on television, but also it’s one of the best fantasy series of all time.
