13 'Pride and Prejudice'-inspired movies, books, TV shows and more, ranked

27 October 2014 10:03 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

It's a truth universally acknowledged that a person in want of a good project will adapt Pride and Prejudice-if not always to dazzling effect. The latest take, a two-part miniseries called Death Comes to Pemberley, premiered yesterday on PBS. And if there's anything P&P fans like almost as much as Austen's book, it's consuming and then critiquing the various interpretations of it. Which is why we're taking this opportunity to rank 13 different iterations of Pride & Prejudice, from the best (the 1995 miniseries starring Colin Firth is a nigh-untouchable high point) to the significantly less great. 1.

Why Lost Fans Should Watch Once Upon a Time

29 September 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

With the premiere of Lost celebrating its 10th anniversary, it’s a stark reminder that no show has been able to truly capture that same frenzied passion. From the memorable characters to its unique style of storytelling, Lost gave TV viewers something fresh and interesting to watch week after week. And in its absence, Once Upon a Time is the best option to fill the void left by flight 815.

While Once Upon a Time has received a lot of attention for its Frozen arc that kicked off season four, we see it as our connection to a series we’re still not finished gushing about. Nothing will replace the brilliant series, but thanks to a number of shared actors and writers, ABC’s fairy tale drama is the best thing to watch to fill those Lost cravings. Here’s why:

The character diversity of Lost was a secret strength of the show

27 September 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Naveen Andrews, Jorge Garcia

This week a decade ago, the pilot aired for a show that would go on to become a milestone in television. That show was Lost and over the years, it has been praised and criticised for many things, while spawning a number of similar shows, most of which have failed to capture its magic. One area where Lost excelled, and beat out all its competitors, is its display of diversity, an aspect of the show that’s often overlooked.

This is perhaps most evident in the breadth of characters that have come through the show during its run. Most shows choose to have their main ensemble be American, even if the performers themselves are not, a trait common to nearly all the sprawling mystery shows that have attempted to replicate Lost’s success. Lost, however, was not afraid to mix up the nationalities and backgrounds of its characters. »

Lost: 10 years on

25 September 2014 2:35 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

A decade after Lost first came to our screens, Gem goes back to the island...

Each Us TV season brings with it a crop of new shows: some outstanding, some memorably awful. 2004/2005, though, was a little different from most. This was the year in which we watched Gregory House solve his first medical mystery and were introduced to those notorious housewives of Wisteria Lane,while Battlestar Galactica brought the Cylons back to our screens after decades spent in sci-fi oblivion.

This unusually impressive bunch dominated the schedules for years, attracted reams of critical and fan commentary, and are still remembered with varying degrees of fondness. However, one of the series to air for the first time that season was a different proposition entirely. Mention its famously divisive ending online and you’ll unleash a torrent of derision, nostalgia and passionate debate. Ask fans to explain its myriad mysteries, and, for the most part, »

Matrix Creators’ ‘Sense8′ Unveiled With Doctor Who’s Freema Agyeman

23 June 2014 8:23 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

With the focus on Karen Gillan and her meteoric rise, it’s easy to forget there’s another former Doctor Who companion doing well for herself the other side of the pond. Known for playing Martha Jones alongside David Tennant’s Tenth (or Eleventh and Twelfth depending on “Who” you speak to) Doctor, actress Freema Agyeman went on to star in Law & Order: UK before appearing in Sex & The City prequel The Carrie Diaries. That fell off the runway pretty quick, but her next project looks like it has legs.

Boasting a combined showrunner pedigree of Matrix creators Andy and Lana Wachowksi and Babylon 5′s J. Michael Straczynski, international sci-fi drama SENSE8 will be shown on Netflix. Agyeman isn’t the only cult TV alumnus in the mix, with the series also featuring Lost‘s Naveen Andrews and Stargate: Universe‘s Brian J.Smith, not to mention movie star Daryl Hannah. »

It's also been described as "a gripping tale of minds linked and souls hunted.”

Thanks to Deadline, we now have a lot more information on the ten episode series, including the large cast and details on the plot. 

Naveen Andrews (Lost), Daryl Hannah (Kill Bill), and Brian J. Smith (Stargate Universe) are among a 14-member international cast. As for the story, the following information comes from  Straczynski, who is the showrunner:
