We're getting a cinematic reboot of "Van Helsing" in a few years, but before that SyFy will premiere their take on the heroic vampire slayer from Bram Stoker's "Dracula". Set in the future, Kelly Overton stars as Vanessa Van Helsing who is resurrected into a world overrun by vampires.
Chad Oakes, Co-Chairman of Nomadic Pictures says: "Van Helsing represents a new mythology in sci-fi by challenging traditional vampire rules.

Don’t read on unless you’ve seen “End,” the series finale of the CBS drama “The Good Wife.”
You almost had me, “Good Wife” finale, right until the end. I have some very mixed emotions about that last sequence.
The good: It was satisfying that Alicia, in a scene that echoed a key moment from the show’s very first episode, did not take Peter’s hand at the end of his press conference. She left him hanging, which was only right, given that she was about to start a new life. She held his hand walking into that room, but after that, they were done. She’d done all the Peter Florrick hand-holding, literal and figurative, she was ever going to do. About time she set off on her own.
Intellectually, I suppose you can make the case that it made sense for her not to find Jason in that hallway. »
