Channel 5 is currently airing season three on Monday nights. However, it has only shown five episodes so far.

The Performer | Ming-Na Wen
The Show | Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
The Episode | “Melinda” (April 14)
The Performance | Too often in TV flashbacks, we’re served a marginally different version of a character we already know well. But on this week’s S.H.I.E.L.D., Wen had occasion to inhabit a distinct Melinda May – one who had not yet been dubbed “The Cavalry.”
In the early flashbacks, it was the little things Wen did to distinguish the past May from present. Beaming warmly at husband Andrew as they looked forward to (ahem) “family planning.” Reacting to a Coulson quip with an audible “heh. »
CBS’ Person of Interest this Tuesday night found yet another way to noodle with its narrative, by surprising us as well as John Reese with the truth about his heart-to-heart with onetime associate Detective Joss Carter.

The set-up for the episode had John digging up a cold case that Carter (played by original cast member-turned-Empire star Taraji P. Henson) was unable to solve, and pursuing it to its bitter end. Along the way, John flashed back to a Season 2 stakeout he and Carter once were on, and the conversation they shared — except, »
(Spoiler alert: Do not read on if you have not yet seen Tuesday night’s episode of “Person of Interest” on CBS entitled “Terra Incognita.”) It’s been nearly a year-and-a-half since the breakout star of Fox’s “Empire,” Taraj P. Henson’s Detective Carter died on CBS’s “Person of Interest.” She was a pivotal character through the first three seasons’ of the crime procedural, building a connection to Jim Caviezel’s stoic Mr. Reese and the mysterious Mr. Finch (Michael Emerson). Over time, she came to be a trusted member of their team, working with Reese and her hapless partner Det. »

Well, you can’t blame CBS, or the producers of “Person of Interest" for trying. Everyone else is jumping on the “Empire” tip to help boost their rating numbers. So it was reported today that Taraji P. Henson will, in fact, be returning to the series in her role of Joss Carter. "But wait a minute!!" I can hear you saying. "Wasn’t her character killed off?" She was indeed, which is why Henson will be returning to the show in the form of flashbacks involving a case that lead character John Reese (played by Jim Caviezel) is working on, that Carter was not able to solve. Yes, that is something of a cheat, but maybe it’ll attract some "Empire" viewers anyway. The episode is reportedly scheduled to air on April 14th.

Taraji P. Henson will be playing a character on TV this month, but it won’t be Cookie Lyon. The Empire actress is returning CBS’ Person Of Interest for a Season 4 episode, reprising her role as Joss Carter. The news was first reported by TVGuide.com. Henson’s character was last seen in the show’s third season, when she was killed while investigating the corrupt cop organization Hr, and Henson’s guest-starring appearance doesn’t change that—Carter is, unfortunately, still dead. No, instead, per TVGuide.com, “Carter will appear in flashbacks during an episode that finds Reese (Jim Caviezel) going solo on a perilous and personal journey to solve a cold homicide case Carter was never able to close.” As stated above, Henson currently stars as Cookie Lyon on Fox’s music industry drama Empire, which quickly became the biggest show on television after premiering back in January. »

As Hugh Jackman begins saying goodbye to Wolverine, he’s got his next project lined up. The Aussie actor will star in “Apostle Paul,” a Warner Bros. movie based on the life of the Jewish man who followed Jesus, spread Christ’s message around the Mediterranean and is attributed with writing letters that became 14 of the 27 books of the New Testament. Deadline originally reported the news. Also involved in the project are two other A-listers: Ben Affleck and Matt Damon. They’ll produce, as will Jackman. The screenplay comes from Matt Cook, who penned the upcoming “By Way of Helena” and “Triple 9.” Damon and Affleck of course are buddies and have worked together many times with their production company Pearl Street Films and in movies like “Good Will Hunting.” Perhaps their new producing partner here caught their attention when Jackman gave Affleck a big vote of confidence following the Batman casting news. »

[Read my more exhaustive "Killing Jesus" set report here.] Ouarzazate, Morocco. It's late October in central Morocco and Haaz Sleiman is worried about crucifixion. Because context is important, it should be noted that Sleiman is sitting in a tent on the set of National Geographic's "Killing Jesus" and he's playing Jesus. We're deep into production on the adaptation of Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard book, but director Christopher Menaul has saved perhaps the hardest scene for late in the shoot. "It's a messed up way to die," Sleiman reflects. "It's probably the most gruesome awful way to die and comparing to any other kind of torture it's like the ultimate because it's also humiliating. They have you walking naked and dragging the beam. I mean the thought of me as Haaz walking with a beam naked, nothing... It would mortified me. I mean I would be terrified. So imagine someone actually really had to go through that. »

The Expendables 3 might not have set the box office alight, but you can't keep a good action hero down.
Sylvester Stallone is reportedly planning to bring his Oap ass-kicker franchise to the small-screen, with an Expendables event series in the works at Fox.
Much like how the films united action heroes of '80s and '90s cinema - Stallone, Schwarzenegger et al - so this new show is looking to bring together iconic TV tough guys from yesteryear.
Casting is yet to be confirmed, but in the meantime, here's Digital Spy's dream team for the TV Expendables.
He might not be eager to reprise Jack Bauer any time soon (dammit!) but Kiefer has to be on this list. His commanding presence makes him a natural fit for team leader - the TV equivalent of Stallone's Barney Ross.

Sean Penn: Honorary César goes Hollywood – again (photo: Sean Penn in '21 Grams') Sean Penn, 54, will receive the 2015 Honorary César (César d'Honneur), the French Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Crafts has announced. That means the French Academy's powers-that-be are once again trying to make the Prix César ceremony relevant to the American media. Their tactic is to hand out the career award to a widely known and relatively young – i.e., media friendly – Hollywood celebrity. (Scroll down for more such examples.) In the words of the French Academy, Honorary César 2015 recipient Sean Penn is a "living legend" and "a stand-alone icon in American cinema." It has also hailed the two-time Best Actor Oscar winner as a "mythical actor, a politically active personality and an exceptional director." Penn will be honored at the César Awards ceremony on Feb. 20, 2015. Sean Penn movies Sean Penn movies range from the teen comedy »

Person of Interest, Season 4, Episodes 7 to 11
Airs Tuesdays at 10 pm Et on CBS
The beginning of the fourth season of Person of Interest saw The Machine and its team once again saving lives, taking precautions against the watchful eye of Samaritan. Greer and his group weren’t the only looming threat, however, as a new criminal gang in the form of The Brotherhood began posing their own challenges for Finch and the team, as well as Elias. These last few episodes have seen both organisations forcefully assert themselves, resulting in casualties that have effectively added weight to the threats they have uttered.
The development of the Brotherhood and their fight against Elias continues to be a strong aspect of the show. While the storyline could have felt like a retreading of Elias’ own rise to power, the writers have managed to go in a distinctly different, »

Cult classic TV series The Prisoner is to be revived by audio production company Big Finish.
Best known for its series of Doctor Who audio dramas, Big Finish also produces ranges based on Blake's 7, Terrahawks and The Avengers.
The audio remake will launch with an initial box-set of five CDs - containing four four-hour-long episodes and a behind-the-scenes documentary - in January 2016, with other box sets to follow.
"It won't simply be a slavish retelling of all the original episodes," said Big Finish's co-executive producer Nicholas Briggs. "But aficionados of the original series will certainly recognise much of what they loved about it.
"A lot of the familiar iconography will be there, but my aim is to push the boundaries, »
