This Thursday on Graceland (USA Network, 10/9c), Paige Arkin will go undercover in a bid to get cozy with wannabe Armenian crime boss Ari’s rival, Toros. Offering Briggs a hand with his op is part of Paige’s “penance” for (very understandably) bungling the team’s recent attempt to gaslight Ari.
Paige of course also has some atoning to do — if only to herself — for her decision to sic murderous Sid Markham on Mike in the Season 2 finale, an impetuous, emotional decision made in the immediate wake of learning that her colleague, »
You know how Aria Montgomery's secretly a genius photographer who spends all day snapping pictures of dolls and whatnot? Well, this week on "Pretty Little Liars," the art world was like "Only Aria Can Save Us!" and she got herself a gallery exhibition. Unfortunately, A thought this would be a great time to be a total photography buzz kill and ruined the entire event.
Other things that happened this week include a new reveal about A's right hand man, and some Ezria flirting that will have shippers shaking and crying. Also of note, Toby Cavanaugh was absent -- presumably due to the fact that he recently binge-ate a bunch of pot gummy bears and is still high.
Everyone Panic, Senior Prom Might Be Cancelled
Last week, the liars got themselves held up at gun point by the Rosewood Pd thanks to their terrible decision to go after Charles Dilaurentis, and »

We rewatched the classic 1980s comedy, Top Secret! It took surgeons two weeks to wipe the smile off our face...
"Is this the potato farm?"
"Yes, I am Albert Potato"
If you're laughing at the quote above, then it's fair to say that you're already a Top Secret! fan. But if you're wondering what that actually means, then chances are you've missed out on one of the very best comedies that the 1980s had to offer.
Now the classic comedy Airplane!, rightfully, has been the beneficiary of some hugely forensic work, just to try and keep on top of its many, many background jokes. In fact, one DVD edition had a special feature just to point out all the things you may have missed on your first, tenth or fiftieth time around. Turns out there were quite a few in my case.

WWE’s Battleground is in its third year now, and it’s fair to say that it’s probably never going to be one of the company’s major shows. The name is unimaginative for one, and the cards haven’t exactly been stellar since its recent inception either, with 2015’s edition firmly joining them.
In fairness, there wasn’t a single terrible match on the card, just a lot of passable fare and bouts that didn’t really ignite fans’ imaginations. Still, as ever, there were a ton of hilarious, weird and off-the-wall moments that made it worth watching, from some distractingly horny fans in the front row, to Xavier Woods being Xavier Woods, and of course, the fiery trainwreck that was the main event.
It wasn’t a show for the ages and sadly there weren’t too many memorable signs from the St. Louis, Missouri crowd, but »

On the surface – and in the headline – there are only two storylines fans will be talking about coming out of WWE Battleground: The return of the Undertaker, who reemerged from clanging and banging in Death Valley to seek retribution against Brock Lesnar, and Kevin Owens' loss (by submission) to John Cena.
Neither development is necessarily good – unless you're the Face of the Franchise – and the resulting ripples are even worse. There are just five weeks until one of WWE's marquee events, SummerSlam, and at the moment it's being »
"Trainwreck" star Hader stopped by his fellow "SNL" alum's "Tonight Show" where the duo teamed up for a (faux) return to the "Point Pleasant Police Department," a buddy cop drama featuring the duo as police officers Preston and Pete, posturing over Pepsi, Perrier – oh, and plenty of projectile spitting.
"I was pruning my petunias. Accidentally punctured my pinky," Jimmy said, with a mouth full of coffee and crackers, which fly all over Hader. "Anyway, looks like our week is – pretty ...

Don’t argue with Jersey Shore cops — especially when they have food in their mouths and a pulsing penchant for “P”-words. Bill Hader dropped by “The Tonight Show” on Thursday to promote his new film, “Trainwreck,” and he left badly in need of a bath. During the appearance, he and Jimmy Fallon played out “clips” from their fake old TV series, “Point Pleasant Police Department,” running back-and-forth from the desk set to the precinct one in real-time.

Jimmy Fallon has turned the spit-take into an art form on The Tonight Show. On Thursday night, the host teamed with fellow SNL alum Bill Hader for "Point Pleasant Police Department," an Eighties cop show parody which found the two comedians projectile-spitting food at each other's faces as they pronounce words beginning with "P."
Hader was ostensibly promoting Trainwreck, his new film with Amy Schumer, but in honor of "Throwback Thursday," Fallon reminisced about his glory days with Hader on "Point Pleasant," a show about "two detectives who couldn't see »
If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.
Welcome to the "Point Pleasant Police Department," this time starring Jimmy Fallon and Bill Hader as two spitting cops. This has to be our favorite recurring "Tonight Show" skit of all time, so watch it and make your Friday that much better.
Amy Schumer just got nominated for all the Emmy Awards ever, so she swung by "Late Night" to celebrate. By which we mean she talked about how she lives alone and is "super lonely." But like, in a funny way, because this is Amy Schumer.
Amy was also honored at the Time 100 Gala, and she spoke to Seth about how massively unimportant she is. Please, we beg to differ. »

Bill Hader stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Thursday night, where he kind of, sort of celebrated Throwback Thursday. When we say kind of, we mean the two "threw it back" to a fake cop show they used to star in together, called Point Pleasant Police Department. If the name of the show is any indication, there are a lot of hard P sounds, and there's a lot of spitting. Watch the hilarious video above, and you'll find just as much trouble keeping a straight face as Jimmy and Bill do. »
“High School Musical” star Justin Martin has been arrested after a shootout with police, the Boston Police Department said Wednesday. Martin, whose credits also include “Eye Candy,” “Cold Case” and “Blue Bloods,” faces charges of unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition, carrying a loaded firearm and two counts of assault by means of a dangerous weapon. According to police, at about 10:16 p.m. on Tuesday, officers were patrolling in the Dorchester neighborhood of Boston when they heard gunfire erupt and observed Martin running down the street with a gun in his hand.

Last week on "Pretty Little Liars," the girls decided that Lesli Stone (aka Mona Vanderwaal's creepy friend) was A, because apparently some blurry photo Aria took kinda-sorta looks like her. Naturally, the liars spent this week obsessing over Lesli instead of just going to the police -- though, can you blame them? The Rosewood Police Department is basically run by teenagers, some of whom used to be stalkers themselves (that's right, Toby, we haven't forgotten the time you joined the A Squad for "research.").
Read our recap for a run-down of what happened this week on everyone's favorite never-ending teen thriller -- and don't forget: A will be unmasked in just three episodes.
Charles Is Alive, The Liars Continue To Be Wrong About Everything
So, the liars think Leslie is A, but as usual they are terrible at everything and have no idea what they're talking about (bless their hearts). Their brilliant plan this week? »

Re-watching the BBC’s superb Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell adaptation on Blu-ray reveals beautiful new details…
No matter how familiar you are with the story, the litmus test for any new Romeo And Juliet production is whether it has you hoping against hope that this time, that letter will be delivered and those poor kids won’t die. You know it’s impossible, you know it will play out just as it ever has, but you still can’t stop yourself from wishing.
Watching Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell again in one burst just days after it finished airing weekly, that’s exactly the position I found myself in. Despite knowing exactly what was going to happen, each time a character took a fateful step forwards, I flinched and hoped that this time it would be different. This story has that rare power to engulf.
Which makes it ideal for swallowing in a single gulp. »

Warning: the power of Christ may compel you while watching the new featurette from the Neveldine-directed film The Vatican Tapes. Also showcased in this round-up: "The Battle of Endor" episode of the Real Fake History series and a teaser for Fear the Walking Dead.
"The Vatican Tapes follows the ultimate battle between good and evil- God versus Satan. Angela Holmes is an ordinary 27-year-old until she begins to have a devastating effect on anyone close, causing serious injury and death. Holmes is examined and possession is suspected, but when the Vatican is called upon to exorcise the demon, the possession proves to be an ancient satanic force more powerful than ever imagined. It’s all up to Father »

When Jeb Bush revealed the slogan for his 2016 presidential campaign, most thinking people had pretty much the same reaction: Hey, that looks like the title of a sit-com! Clearly, the use of the exclamation mark was meant to distinguish George W.’s younger brother from the baker’s dozen of Republicans seeking the nomination, perhaps by making him seem a bit more more lively and vibrant. Maybe the former Florida Governor was trying to seem current by utilizing a punctuation that these days litters every one of our texts and emails. (If you say you’re excited to see me, but don't use at least one exclamation, how can I really believe you?) Generally, but not always, television shows that have dared to wield the exclamation point in their titles have done so with a precise purpose in mind, whether to demonstrate urgency, irony, or just plain enthusiasm. Occasionally, the »

Cinema’s Hidden Pearls – Part II
By Alex Simon
One of nature’s rarest items, a pearl is produced within the soft tissue (specifically the mantle) of a living shelled mollusk. Just like the shell of a clam, a pearl is composed of calcium carbonate in minute crystalline form, which has been deposited in concentric layers. Truly flawless pearls are infrequently produced in nature, and as a result, the pearl has become a metaphor for something rare, fine, admirable and valuable.
Hidden pearls exist in the world of movies, as well: films that, in spite of being brilliantly crafted and executed, never got the audience they deserved beyond a cult following.
Here are a few more of our favorite hidden pearls in the world of film:
