Channel 4 is getting nostalgic with a new documentary about 1990s culture.
Ninety-minute doc Turn Up...The Nineties will chronicle the rise of Cool Britannia and Britpop, as well as taking a look at some of the decade's most culturally influential figures such as Oasis, Kate Moss, Damien Hirst and David Beckham.
"We're all waiting for the next pop culture revolution where a chart battle between two bands can make the six o'clock news," said Jonny Rothery, Channel 4's commissioning editor for music.
"Whilst we wait, I'm really pleased to be taking a look back at this fascinating period when Generation X rose to prominence and everyone was mad for it."

Heroes and Villains, the best new show of the year?! Sorry all other freshman shows, but Once Upon a Time just became an entirely new show and we're obsessed with it. In the ABC fantasy hit's two-hour season finale, "Operation Mongoose," the author turns the tables on our heroes and villains, and nothing will ever be the same. Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) becomes evil! Rumplestiltskin (Robert Carlyle) becomes a knight in shining armor! Pigs fly! Ok, that last part is a lie, but you get the idea. But will the season four finale keep with the shows trend of introducing a new world and/or iconic Disney character (Hi, Frozen's Elsa!) in the final moments? "This one is one of our favorite ones.

The backstories on Once Upon a Time continue to become more complex (confusing?) but enough viewers are willing to stick with it for ABC to want to renew the series for a fifth season.

The ensemble cast includes Jennifer Morrison, Lana Parrilla, Ginnifer Goodwin, Josh Dallas, Robert Carlyle, Colin O'Donoghue, Emile de Ravin, Jared S. Gilmore, and Michael Socha.

Scotland is moving one step closer to having a major film studio of its own after details emerged of rival bids from sites on the outskirts of Edinburgh and in Dundee.
The Edinburgh site, at Straiton in Midlothian, would be a privately funded $150m complex featuring six sound stages, on 86 acres of land close to an existing retail site, according to the Scotsman. It would feature 130,000 sq ft of studio space and is set to include two Hollywood-style backlots, an outdoor water stage and a film academy.

What a witch! Once Upon A Time dropped a major bombshell on us tonight and also solved a major mystery for us: How was the Wicked Witch (Rebecca Mader) supposed to come back after she was killed?

Thus far, Emma has given her beau a wide berth when it comes to disclosing this dark secret. But if and when it does come out, will Killian get the hook regardless? TVLine spoke with Colin O’Donoghue about this Sunday’s illuminating flashbacks (ABC, 8/7c) and the overall state of the “Captain Swan” romance, »
Captain Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) has had a tumultuous journey on “Once Upon a Time,” evolving from villainous pirate to somewhat reformed pirate with aspirations of heroism. His hard-earned goodness will be put to the test in the March 22 episode, “Poor Unfortunate Soul,” which explores Hook’s “complicated” history with Ursula (Merrin Dungey).
Variety spoke to O’Donoghue ahead of Sunday’s episode to learn more about Hook’s past with the sea witch, his suspicions about Mr. Gold/Rumplestiltskin (Robert Carlyle) and his deepening relationship with Emma (Jennifer Morrison). Light spoilers ahead.
In the present day, we know that Hook’s is investigating Rumplestiltskin’s plans by quizzing Ursula for information — what’s their dynamic like?

Spoiler Warning: Do not read on unless you’ve seen “Once Upon a Time” season 4, episode 14, titled “Unforgiven.”
Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) and Prince Charming (Josh Dallas) have had their share of ups and downs on “Once Upon a Time” thus far, but the events of this week’s episode threaten to destroy everything they’ve built — especially their relationship with daughter Emma (Jennifer Morrison). We now know that the perfect couple is somehow responsible for Maleficent (Kristin Bauer van Straten) losing her child, and according to executive producer Adam Horowitz, “that’s the tip of the iceberg of the secret that you saw. Our hope is that by the time everything is revealed, you’ll see it really informs who they were in season one, when you met them for the first time.”

After 3 1/2 seasons of the good characters of the ABC drama banding together to take down whatever foe came their way, Rumple/Mr. Gold (Robert Carlyle) took that lesson and will adapt it during the upcoming "Queens of Darkness" arc, as he sets out to get his own happy ending.

That's because Zelena/the Wicked Witch will only be seen in flashbacks! Mader is returning to film her »
