Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman Returns...With a Funny or Die Twist!

Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman Returns...With a Funny or Die Twist!
Dr. Quinn is back! Sort of. Thanks to Funny or Die, we now know what a gritty Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman reboot would like. It's Dr. Quinn meets Breaking Bad. She is the one who knocks. Jane Seymour reprised her Emmy-nominated role for the new video and she was joined by several of her former costars including Joe Lando, Jonelle Allen and Chad Allen. We're getting some serious 1990s nostalgia over here! Dr. Quinn was known for using morphine—hey, it was the mid-1800s after all—so what happens when all the townsfolk become addicts? She slaps on a pair of Walter White-esque glasses and embraces her new drug lord persona, as TV characters are known to do. The original Dr. Quinn,...

Zoe Bell Becomes Gator Bait in Freshwater

Zoe Bell’s made a career kicking ass in the movies. Judging by the premise of her new nature gone amok thriller Freshwater, it sounds like she better be ready to add alligator wrestling to her impressive array of fighting skills.

Zoe Bell (Deathproof, Raze) and Joe Lando (“Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman”, “The Secret Circle”) headline writer-director Brandy Berry’s currently in-production Southern fried creature feature entitled Freshwater. Amy Paffrath, John Bobek, and Alison Haislip co-star.

Synopsis:

Lake Charles in Louisiana is the idyllic spot to catch some sun and enjoy the tranquil miles of freshwater. When a group of 20-somethings meet up at their island lake house for a weekend of partying, one of the friends never shows up. As more lake visitors are yanked underwater by what seems to be some giant alligators, the screams bring the group out of the lake house. Frantically discovering their boat has drifted away,

'Secret Circle': How will they keep up next season?

'Secret Circle': How will they keep up next season?
The Secret Circle seems to have embraced an everything-but-the-kitchen-sink philosophy to storytelling. Over the show’s 21 episodes, there have been several demon possessions, at least two resurrections (one of which was thanks to a demon possession!), one super-hot hex sex scene, a memory erasure, and a reveal that two of the show’s main characters are half-sisters… and now there’s a crystal skull? As Steven Spielberg and Geoge Lucas learned a while back, no good can come from a crystal skull.

Taking a more-is-more approach is not uncommon these days in TV storytelling — not only for freshman series (hello,

'The Secret Circle': Chris Zylka on the return of Nick, a season finale that will piss fans off (in a good way), and bullying Spider-Man on the big screen
Fans of The Secret Circle had no idea Nick (Louis Hunter), who died earlier this season, would somehow return in last week’s episode. But Chris Zylka, who plays Nick’s brother Jake, had suspected it was coming for a while. “Louis secretly was telling Thomas that they were trying to negotiate something for him to come back awhile ago, and that sparked complete joy in me because Louis and I had never met. Here we play brothers, and all I want to do is meet the guy to kinda get to know him so there was that sense that we knew each other before,

The Secret Circle's Shelley Hennig: Diana Isn't Too Happy with Being a Balcoin

The other Balcoin child on The Secret Circle has finally been revealed!

Upon learning that John Blackwell (Joe Lando) had fathered another witch in the Circle, the odds on it being Faye (Phoebe Tonkin) were favorable, especially considering her mother's crush on Blackwell and Faye's own affinity for the darker side of magic. But it was innocent Diana (Shelley Hennig) who turned out to be Cassie's (Britt Robertson) half-sister. Twist!

‘The Secret Circle’ Shocker: Cassie’s Sibling Is [Spoiler]

The 'other Blackwell' has finally been revealed! Did you guess right? It's been the question on every Secret Circle fan's mind since the winter finale: Who is Cassie's (Britt Robertson) half-sibling in the circle? The answer was finally revealed at the very end of the April 19 episode -- and it was not who I was expecting. Despite Faye (Phoebe Tonkin) being positive she was John's (Joe Lando) daughter for most of the hour, the other Blackwell turned out to be none other than Diana (Shelley Hennig)! Cassie put two and two together after Diana was affected by a spell designed to cripple witches with dark magic. Personally, I'm just glad the other Blackwell isn't Adam (Thomas Dekker) or Jake (Chris Zylka). I feel like incest is the final frontier The Secret Circle just isn't ready to tackle. Hit up the comments section with your thoughts on this week's big reveal.
