Sometimes Emily Hampshire slips into character during dates.
Things get awkward, the Canadian actress tells Et, when her courter suddenly realizes that she's not Stevie Budd, the deadpan, buttoned-up motel clerk she hilariously portrays on Pop TV's Schitt's Creek, which just finished airing a critically acclaimed third season earlier this year. In fact, Hampshire, who frequently breaks into uproarious giggle fits during our freewheeling interview, couldn't be more infectiously giddy and refreshingly forthcoming.
"I feel bad that I'm not Stevie for them, that I'm not as cool as Stevie," the 35-year-old actress says. "They meet me and they're like, 'Oh, you're way more animated than Stevie is.' I can hear the disappointment in their voice."
That's when, she acknowledges, "I try to overcompensate for not being Stevie."
So then they get Jennifer Goines, the brainy but unhinged heroine she plays on Syfy's 12 Monkeys. If you know Jennifer, you know this means Hampshire's dates end with »

12 Monkeys has the unfortunate reputation of being renowned as one of the best shows that no one watches. This is all too understandable, as its origami narrative is simply impenetrable to casual viewers tuning in midway through. Though it began with a straightforwardly Terminator-esque mission – go back in time to kill the man responsible for the apocalypse – it’s evolved into a dense temporal thicket including evolved human beings with direct connections to time itself, gigantic time-travelling cities, a plethora of knotty paradoxes, and time-muddled familial relations. No wonder the new series’ central motif is an ouroboros – a snake consuming its own tail.
Season 2 ended with one of our heroes, Cassie, being informed that her just-conceived baby will grow up to be series big bad The Witness, the sinister masked figure responsible for the deaths of 7 billion people whose lofty ambition is the destruction of time itself. »

10 years after the death of television star John F. Donovan (Kit Harington), a young actor opens up about the written correspondence they once shared.

I could spend the rest of my life talking about mothers and sons and still be »

Syfy has given one more renewal to sci-fi drama “12 Monkeys.”
The third season of “12 Monkeys” won’t premiere until May, but Syfy has already ordered a fourth installment of 10 episodes. The catch: Season 4 will be the show’s last.
Syfy is adopting a different linear strategy for Season 3, as well. The entire season will air over three nights, beginning on May 19. Four episodes will air on the 19th, then three on each of the next two nights. The strategy is an answer to the anemic live ratings the show drew over its first two seasons, which grew upwards of 70% in DVR viewing.
“’12 Monkeys’ has a dedicated and enthusiastic fan-base thanks to the epic storytelling by Terry Matalas, and the stellar cast and crew,” said Jeff Wachtel, president and chief content officer, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment. “We are thrilled to be able to offer fans an opportunity to binge the third season as a reward for their lasting support »

Canadian treasure Schitt’s Creek has settled any fears fans might have about the show returning with a fourth season order. That might sound strange, if you know the show, because it has performed well, taken home a lot of awards, has critics raving, and is absolutely hilarious, but the show does have a certain air about it that continues to make people wonder about its longevity. That might also sound strange, but it’s actually a kind of compliment to Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara, who aren’t the sort of people who will just plug away because someone will keep signing checks. I’m a huge fan of the show, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they decided they’d done what they could with the Rose clan.
Perhaps more significant to the show’s future, I also wouldn’t be at all surprised if anyone »
