Last week, the TV world was abuzz with the idea of a "Seinfeld" reunion, as Jerry Seinfeld and Jason Alexander were photographed, Alexander clearly costumed as George Costanza, entering Tom's Restaurant, the New York diner that inspired Monk's on the NBC sitcom. Then Seinfeld did an appearance on WFAN radio's morning show in New York, where he teased that it was a reunion, featuring multiple actors from the show, that it wasn't for his Crackle.com series "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee," and that it would be seen very soon.

"Game of Thrones" won't return to HBO until Sunday, April 6, with the fourth season continuing to adapt the events from George R.R. Martin's third book in the "A Song of Ice and Fire" series, "A Storm of Swords." But if you want a taste of what life in Westeros (and Essos) will look like in the new season, HBO released a bunch of new photos today, including lots of familiar faces like Emilia Clarke, Peter Dinklage and Lena Headey, but also some new actors playing older characters (Michiel Huisman as the new Daario) and new faces altogether (Pedro Pascal and Indira Varma as two newbies).

Enjoy.

HitFix First Look: 'Hannibal' season 2 trailer

NBC's "Hannibal" was one of the most pleasant surprises of 2013, and wound up on my top 10 list for the year. Even as TV dealt with serial killer overload, Bryan Fuller and David Slade's take on the very familiar Hannibal Lecter story had so much imagination and daring that it felt like something brand new, rather than a rehash of a 30-year-old story.

(Fuller and I discussed the season at length here and here. If you're looking to catch up, the whole season is streaming on Amazon Prime.) 

The show's set to return on Friday, February 28 at 10 p.m., dealing with the role reversed status quo introduced in the season 1 finale. Though one of the most impressive parts of season 1 was how it made Hugh Dancy's Will Graham just as complicated and fascinating a character as Dr. Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) himself, the newest trailer for season 2 — a HitFix exclusive today — is putting all the emphasis on the understated cannibalistic evil of the show's title character. And given Mikkelsen's cool performance, you can understand why.

"Rick & Morty," the Adult Swim series co-created by Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland, premiered back in December when I was otherwise occupied. And as unfortunately sometimes happens, once I miss the premiere of a series, I miss it altogether. One of the few advantages of nursing a broken leg is that it's given me slightly more viewing time, and I used some of that to catch up on the series, including the latest episode, which I've embedded below. (The series regularly airs Mondays at 10:30, and Adult Swim's video site allows authenticated users to watch previous episodes.) A few thoughts on the series so far coming up just as soon as you take two strokes off my golf game...
