Lena Headey’s sci-fi freedom-fighter tackles the killer robots with terminal violence and a nice line in dry, dark humour
Thanks to the recent arrival of Terminator: Genysis, there are now more bad Terminator movies than good ones. At their best (the two James Cameron ones) they are well-sustained chases peppered with interesting ideas on robotics and time travel delivered on the hoof. This underrated TV spin-off, which ran from 2008-09, has the time to explore the more fascinating aspects in some depth, while still delivering Terminator-style action sequences on a small-screen budget.
We rejoin Sarah Connor (Lena Headey) and her son John (Thomas Dekker) four years after the events of Terminator 2. They are still on the run from killer robots from the future, except that now they’ve got a killbot on their side, the cheekily named Cameron (Summer Glau). Future-John apparently reprogrammed Cameron and sent her »

The Tracking Board reports that the film could well be an origin story about the world's best secret agent, a white mouse with an eye patch, and his timid assistant Penfold. The cartoon effectively served as a kind of Bond spoof, with Danger Mouse often facing his evil toad enemy Baron Silas von Greenback.
The series ran from 1981 to 1992 and was recently rebooted and relaunched on Cbbc in the UK with the likes of Alexander Armstrong, Stephen Fry, Lena Headey and John Oliver lending their voices to the series. That reboot will screen on Netflix U.S. starting in the Spring. »

When it comes to Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey), people either love her or hate her. There is no in-between. But one thing everyone can agree on is that she is a woman you should never mess with, because it won't end well for you.
To fill the hole in our heart left by this "Game of Thrones" hiatus, let's celebrate all the times Cersei Lannister was the head b*tch in charge -- with GIFs! »

Meet some of the best directors working today, who haven't gone down the blockbuster movie route...
Ever find it a bit lame when the same big name directors get kicked around for every high profile project? Christopher Nolan, Jj Abrams, maybe the Russo Brothers? With so much focus on blockbuster films these days, getting a major franchise job seems like the main acknowledgement of success for a filmmaker. And yes, both the financial and creative rewards can be great. But there are plenty of other directors out there, doing their own thing, from art house auteurs to Dtv action specialists.
Here are 25 examples.
Even if you don’t know his name, you’ve probably seen Lee Hardcastle’s ultraviolent claymations shared on social media. He first started getting noticed for his two-minute remake of The Thing, starring the famous stop motion penguin Pingu. Far from just a cheap one-joke mash-up, »
Bringing back Danger Mouse is a big deal - and the stars of Cbbc's new revamp have promised they won't mess it up.
The team behind the new show were "respectful" of the classic '80s animation, said Kevin Eldon - who voices Dm's assistant Penfold.
"People are possessive of stuff that belongs to their childhood, and you can understand that," he said. "You don't want to it be 'Scrappy Doo' - coming back and doing a horrible thing to the memory of something brilliant.
"I think that the people involved in this were respectful of the original. It has hauled itself into the 21st century, but it hasn't done it at the expense of the original's spirit.
"The scripts were just great - so imaginative, and with the same anarchic spirit as the original."
The rodent spy returns for 2015 with a slick new look and the voice of Alexander Armstrong. As we find when we visit the vocal booth though, the cartoon’s anarchic spirit remains
“God, I’m excited. It comes out in September, right? Woo-hoo-hoo!” Alexander Armstrong is 45 years old, but has just emitted a genuine whoop of joy. The Guide is crashing the final day of voice recording for a show that, even in the wake of several high-profile reboots of beloved children’s classics, has a lot of people jumping up and down. Armstrong is your new Danger Mouse…
“I’ve never wanted a job as much as this. Plenty of parts you go up for and you don’t really mind, but not getting this would have devastated me.”

Today is the television industry's biggest event, with the 67th Primetime Emmy Awards, hosted by Andy Samberg, airing live today, starting at 8 Pm Et/5 Pm Et on Fox. History was made during the telecast, when Viola Davis became the first African-American actress ever to win the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series, for her role in ABC's How to Get Away with Murder, while Mad Men star Jon Hamm ended his Emmy losing streak by picking up his first ever statuette. The big winner tonight, though, was HBO's Game of Thrones, which took home four Emmy Awards tonight, bringing its total to 12, counting the Creative Arts Emmy Awards that were held earlier this month (visit Emmys.com for the full list of winners).

Emmy host Andy Samberg joked in his monologue that if Uzo Aduba won Best Drama Supporting Actress for "Orange is the New Black," she would be "the new Ed Asner" because he was previously the only star to win for the same role in both Comedy and Drama. Well, it happened. -Break- Watch our recent Emmy webchats with Christina Hendricks, Uzo Aduba, and Joanne Froggatt Aduba plays Suzanne "Crazy Eyes" Warren in the Netflix prison series "Orange is the New Black." She won Best Comedy Guest Actress last year, but moved to this race after the TV academy deemed the series a drama. She got 3/1 odds to prevail, good enough for third place in our rankings. She submitted the episode "Hugs Can Be Deceiving," in which we learn Crazy Eyes' backstory as an adopted child and an outcast. Gold Derby predicted that Lena Headey would go along for the »

At Saturday's BAFTA tea party for Emmy nominees in Los Angeles, we chatted with “Game of Thrones” star Sophie Turner about her show possibly making Emmy history this weekend (watch our fun interview below). “Game of Thrones” won eight trophies at last weekend's Creative Arts Emmys and is the frontrunner on Sunday to win Best Drama Series with 9/10 odds. One more victory will tie it with "The West Wing" for the most Emmys by a series. Two more wins and it sets the all-time record. In addition to the series nomination, it also has bids for Peter Dinklage (supporting actor), Emilia Clarke (supporting actress), Lena Headey (supporting actress), directing, and writing for the next ceremony. On whether she feels pressure, Turner admits, "Well, I was fine until now, thanks." On her favorite moments from season five she says, "Any of those scenes" where she got to work with Alfie Allen »
"As soon as you have a record offered up to you, you have to take it, but also you worry about not getting it," admits "Game of Thrones" producer Chris Newman on the red carpet of the TV academy's recent event saluting this year's nominated producers. Last week the HBO fantasy epic won eight trophies at the Creative Arts Emmys, just one away from the one-year record set by "The West Wing" in 2000. (Watch our entire red carpet Q&A below.) -Break- Related: Complete list of 2015 Creative Arts Emmy winners If "Game of Thrones" wins Best Drama Series, as Gold Derby predicts with leading 5/6 odds, the show will tie "The West Wing," and if it wins just one more -- either for Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey, Emilia Clarke, Best Writing ("Mother's Mercy"), or Best Directing ("Mother's Mercy" or "Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken") -- it will stand alone in the Emmy record books. »
