'X Factor' MK1 on Lucy Spraggan: "A smile wouldn't go amiss"

25 October 2012 1:03 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

X Factor group MK1 have labelled Lucy Spraggan as "grumpy". The axed duo have criticised the singer-songwriter for being difficult backstage, saying that it was hard to get to know her properly. Simeon Dixon told BBC Radio 1Xtra's Sarah-Jane Crawford: "Lucy Spraggan had so many bad days and it was hard to try to connect and talk to her." Charlie Rundle agreed, saying: "She sounded a bit grumpy. Don't get me wrong, she's talented. But a smile wouldn't go amiss, if you know what I'm saying." (more) »

First Trailer for Episode 4 of The Walking Dead Video Game

1 October 2012 1:17 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

With the fourth episode of The Walking Dead video game scheduled for release later this month, the first trailer for Around Every Corner has been released.

Sadly, a specific release date for each platform has not yet been announced, but this is similar to the previous episode releases. The lack of an exact release date is due to the approval process that each platform has, but we should see the PC, Xbox Live, PlayStation, and Mac version before the end of the month.

As reported earlier, we’ll be getting a box release of all five episodes this December for those that are waiting to play it all at once. That means that we should see the release of Episode 5, titled No Time Left, in late November or early December.

Based on comments from Telltale Games and the success of the first three episodes, don’t expect episode 5 to be »

Screenshots from The Walking Dead Social Game

10 August 2012 1:45 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

The Walking Dead Social Game opened to the public yesterday, but if you haven’t had a chance to try it out yet, we have screenshots from the opening of the game and the first few missions.

As the name implies, this is very much a casual game meant to be played with your friends. If you’re not much of a gamer and would like to throw yourself into the world of The Walking Dead with your friends, this game has a really easy learning curve and ties into the TV series episodes.

For gamers who are looking for more of a challenge, you’ll have to wait for the release of Activision’s first person shooter, where you’ll play as Daryl Dixon before the events of The Walking Dead TV show. Fans of Telltale’s episodic games can also look forward to Episode 3 of The Walking Dead game series later this month. »

'Walking Dead' Season Three Means More Action For Glenn And Maggie

27 July 2012 6:00 AM, PDT | MTV Splash Page | See recent MTV Splash Page news »

Rick Grimes and Daryl Dixon are both tremendously badass, no doubt about it. But those two aren't enough to keep their fellow "Walking Dead" survivors safe. Others in their group have to step up to the plate come season three — a message heard loudly and clearly by Maggie and Glenn, arguably the heart and soul of the AMC zombie series.

At Comic-Con, actress Lauren Cohan told MTV News that fans can count on Maggie to roll up her sleeves and get down and dirty with the zombie-killing this coming season.

"She's a strong character. When we first see Maggie [in season two], she's swinging a baseball bat from a horse," she said. "We know that girl exists and she hasn't had to necessarily show these colors yet. You can't sit around anymore. She gets to step up with the boys, trying to pave the way to safety."

"She's had enough," Cohan continued. "She »

Walking Dead Brings More Zombie Overload to Consoles in New Fps

7 July 2012 8:05 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) is one of the most beloved zombie slayers in town thanks to The Walking Dead‘s first showrunner Frank Darabont and Dixon’s brilliantly reserved portrayal by Reedus. His skill with a crossbow and unique little-brother relationship to racist-redneck Merle has now earned him the coveted spot as lead character in a new Twd video game.

Although Telltale games has been releasing comic book inspired gamed, which center on strong storytelling and quicktime clips, Walking Dead has extended its license to Activision, which will be releasing a new First-Person Shooter (Fps) based on the AMC TV series.

Editor’S Pick: Interview – “Hi My Name is Daryl: Norman Reedus

It’s a stealth driven game where, according to Activision: “No place is truly safe for Daryl as he makes his way through the Georgia countryside in this new, post-apocalyptic world.”

Idol Top 7 Results Recap: Saved by the Belle?

12 April 2012 6:25 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Whether or not you’re happy with the outcome of this week’s American Idol Top 7 results show, I think we can all agree on one thing: The sight of Phillip Phillips with Colton Dixon’s head in his lap, gingerly stroking his rival’s magnificent coiff as they delivered the line “Why so serious?” in a group rendition of Pink’s “Raise Your Glass,” was the stuff of Idol legend.

Actually, maybe we can agree on two things? Because, to paraphrase Randy Jackson, blah blah blah, blah blah blah, blah blah blah, America got it wrong with the Bottom 3 this week, »

90210 Review: Desperate Housewives

13 March 2012 9:22 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Last week's return of Jen Clark was underwhelming to say the least. Fortunately, it seemed as if the writers of 90210 read our minds on "Blood Is Thicker Than Mud" because the old Jen returned, more conniving than ever.

All it took to spark Jen's fire was a little unhealthy competition with little sis Naomi. We've always known Jen was a desperate sociopath, but I guess finding a new sugar daddy isn't just about little Jacques.

Naomi really doesn't have any family in her life, so it makes sense that she continuously falls for Jen's apologies and excuses. Despite Jen sleeping with two of her past love interests, Naomi was ready to believe her sibling when she said she would give up Preston.

To be honest, I believed Jen too.... even though every single cell in my body was screaming not to. I should've gone with my gut and the same can be said for Naomi. »

American Idol Recap: What Happened in Vegas

17 February 2012 8:40 AM, PST | | See recent news »

How can anyone complain about an American Idol episode that packed in performances from more than 50 singers, a heaping portion of maniacal/delightful bitchery courtesy of “The Vocal Coach from Hell,” and a genuine emotional breakdown from soundbite-spewing cool kid Heejun Han? Actually, if you’ll give me a second, I’m sure I can come up with something — Season 10 Vegas survivor Hollie Cavanagh once again getting the seen-but-never-heard treatment? one of the strongest vocalists in the competition getting burned by a last-minute judges’ switcheroo? the continued existence of Randy Jackson on my TV screen? —  but sometimes, you have to »

'American Idol': The thousandth episode of Hollywood narrows it to 42

16 February 2012 7:15 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

As Hollywood Week drags on for what seems like its fifth week, the "American Idol" hopefuls are put through another group performance. Except they get more time and professional-looking costumes and lighting, so it's not quite as fun as the crazy Group Night.

We kick things off on the bus that hauls the Idols to Las Vegas, for reasons kind of passing understanding. Why move venues? Why not keep them in the same building they've been living in for all of Hollywood Week and just completely Stockholm Syndrome them?

The judges tell the 70 kids left that they are going to sing music from the 1950s1960s, which will definitely prepare them for on the live shows when they get criticized for being current or not knowing who they are as an artist. *eye roll*

Now, I'm criticizing music from this era. I love the 50s/60s. Love. But ... c'mon. We all know how "Idol" is. »

‘American Idol,’ Season 11, Episode 10, ‘Performance Challenge’: TV Recap

16 February 2012 7:05 PM, PST | Speakeasy/Wall Street Journal | See recent Speakeasy/Wall Street Journal news »


With 70 contestants still standing, “American Idol” kicked it old school in Las Vegas with songs from the 50s and 60s. Singers performed in groups of three and four and each team was styled and costumed for the first time. And unlike pretty much every episode so far this season, nobody fainted, fell off the stage, or got rushed to the hospital. But there was drama, and there were, of course tears.

That’s because what happens in Vegas doesn’t stay… »
