The Good, The Bad & The Nerdy for Dec 7
Are you ready for April? HBO released an official trailer for the upcoming final season of Game of Thrones coming in 2019. Enjoy over and over and over and over again in the video above.
20th Century Fox is teaming up with New Regency on The Patient Who Nearly Drove Me Out of Medicine. The film will be produced by Ryan Reynolds through his Maximum Effort production company, along with Roy Lee and Jon Berg through Vertigo. It will be based on the Jasper DeWitt novella of the same name, originally published on Reddit No Sleep, about a doctor who tries to heal his most challenging patient.
Sadly, the trailer above is only a parody, but still, an enjoyable look at what could make for a fun Home Alone reunion.
Have you ever wondered what made Sheldon Cooper first say “Bazinga”? If so, then Young Sheldon just answered your questions. Last night’s episode, “A Stunted Childhood and a Can of Fancy Mixed Nuts”, took The Big Bang Theory fans by surprise, by revealing the origins of Sheldon’s iconic catchphrase. At one point in the episode, young Sheldon (Ian Armitage) was at a comic book store, where he took interest in a spinner rack of novelty items. At the top of the spinner rack was a sign, advertising “Bazinga Novelty Company”. As the sign explained, “If it’s funny, it’s a Bazinga!” This prompted Sheldon to start saying the catchphrase to people as he pulled pranks.
Richard Gere is heading to Apple’s streaming TV service. The Pretty Woman actor is set to star in an untitled Apple drama based on Israeli series Bastards.

MoviePass has changed its subscription pricing model yet again. Three new plans, which will be available January 1st, will still limit moviegoers to three films a month. Basic plans will range from $10 to $15 a month depending location, and certain new releases will be off limits; the $15 to $20 middle tier removes those restrictions. The top tier (at $20 to $25) gives subscribers 3D or Imax privileges, but only one per month.
