Rule No. 8: “Never take anything for granted.”
CBS’ NCIS takes that to heart tonight at 8/7c, with a Christmas episode that reflects on one of the long-running drama’s recurring themes: Gibbs’ Rules.
“I wanted for a while to do an episode about Gibbs’ rules,” showrunner Gary Glasberg tells TVLine, “and Chris Waild, one of my writer-producers, had the clever idea of incorporating it into our Christmas show.”
The framing device, per Glasberg: “McGee (played by Sean Murray) is writing a letter to his father, sitting at the great, old typewriter that he writes his books on, sort of »

From CBS: NCIS Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs (Mark Harmon), a former Marine gunnery sergeant whose skills as an investigator are unmatched, leads this troupe of colorful personalities. Gibbs, a man of few words, only needs a look to explain it all. The team includes NCIS Special Agent Anthony Dinozzo (Michael Weatherly), an ex-homicide detective whose instincts in the field are unparalleled and whose quick wit and humorous take on life make him a team favorite; NCIS Special Agent Timothy McGee (Sean Murray), an MIT graduate whose brilliance with computers far overshadows his insecurities in the field; and the newest member of the team, Probationary Agent Eleanor ?Ellie? Bishop (Emily Wickersham), a mysterious mixture of analytic brilliance, fierce determination and idealism who specializes in international threat assessment and global preparation. Assisting the team is the youthful and energetic forensic specialist Abby Sciuto (Pauley Perrette), a »
Hocus Pocus fans, rejoice! Last month, Bette Midler sent fans into a tizzy when she revealed during a Reddit Ama that she would love to star in a follow-up to the 1993 cult hit. She also confirmed that the fellow Sanderson sisters, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy are totally down for a sequel, with the witches later reaffirming the 69-year-old star's sentiments on Twitter. So, when E! News caught up with Sean Murray, who played Thackery in the original flick, we had to ask the NCIS star if he, too, is game for a sequel? "I don't know I would have to see what it is," the 37-year-old star told E! News at the 4th Annual Santa's »
Sean Murray of British developer Hello Games was at the Playstation Experience event this weekend to unveil some new gameplay footage of the ambitious and very intriguing game No Man’s Sky.
The trailer focuses on attempting to show gamers the insane scope of the procedurally generated game. We see a pilot launching and landing their ship, before getting out and walking around. We see the incredibly way you can fly towards a planet and then entire its atmosphere before finally landing without a single loading screen.
The game then zooms out, leaving the planet far far behind. We see that the planets are mere specks as part of a gigantic, seemingly-infinite universe. Then, we warp to a second planet, light years away from the first. It’s an absolutely astounding looking title already. The amount of variety on display here is incredible, and while the crux of No Man’s Sky is still unknown, »

Now that Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy are all willing to reprise their roles, a Hocus Pocus sequel is officially on the table. A lot has changed since the movie was released in 1993, especially the actors. Ok, maybe Bette Midler looks mostly the same, but Dani (Thora Birch) and Max (Omri Katz) are all grown up! Plus, Thackery (Sean Murray) is still as cute as ever. Catch up with the whole cast by checking out all the cute then-and-now pictures below. »
It is as much a part of Halloween as pumpkins, trick or treating and stuffing your face with candy. Halloween just wouldn't be Halloween without an annual viewing of the Disney spook-fest that is Hocus Pocus.
Firmly established as a cult classic, the 1993 movie was a surprise hit, taking 8 years to get made and originally being planned as a straight-to-tv project titled Disney's Haunted House.
21 years on from its release, we look back at the film's stars and find out where they are now.

The ratings for NCIS dropped last season but the series remained the most-watched TV show on network television. While there seems to be no chance of NCIS being cancelled, shows do get more expensive the longer they're on the air and this one's been around a long time. Could this be the final season or is a 13th season renewal all-but guaranteed? Stay tuned.
On NCIS, Jethro Gibbs (Mark Harmon) and his team of special agents continue to investigate crimes that involve the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps. Co-stars are Emily Wickersham, Michael Weatherly, Sean Murray, David McCallum, Pauley Perrette, Rocky Carroll, and Brian Dietzen.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes »

Everything seems so secretive with The Mentalist this season. If anybody can get us something meaty to go on, it’s you! Do you have something? –Nicki
I’d call this downright meaty: In Episode 7 of the coming season (premiering… at “midseason”), we will meet Lisbon’s two brothers. The younger one (early 30s), Jimmy, »
CBS’ NCIS opened its 12th season on Tuesday night with an episode that started off as a routine escorting of a team member home from Russia, but soon enough segued into an action-adventure, stranding Gibbs and McGee in the Russian wilderness.

The following recap, by the very definition of the word “recap,” contains spoilers from Under the Dome‘s Season 2 finale.
CBS’ Under the Dome, as Season 2 drew to a close, kinda sorta evoked Stephen King’s The Shining — and in doing so, the summertime drama took its first major step into channeling some of Mr. King’s horror themes.
The finale also teased (barely) what any possible third season would look like.

There isn’t a single problem that Scorpion‘s Walter O’Brien can’t solve. Well, if you don’t count the whole “unable to process emotions” thing.
On the CBS procedural, which debuted Monday, Walter (Body of Proof’s Elyes Gabel) is one of the five smartest people in the world, and he’s surrounded himself with other highly intelligent outcasts who are just scraping by in the real world: Sylvester Dodd, a mind-bogglingly fast mathematician; Toby Curtis, a Harvard-trained behaviorist; and Happy Quinn, an engineering whiz (who also has an affinity for punching people in the mouth).
The Big Bang Theory kicked off its eighth season with two back-to-back episodes, the first of which answered the burning question, “Where the heck did Sheldon go?!”
The action picks up 45 days into Sheldon’s “railroad journey of healing,” and all is not well. Robbed of all his personal belongings and dignity, a panicked, unhinged, tighty-whitied Sheldon is seen begging strangers at an Arizona train depot for help. He seeks refuge at a nearby police precinct, where he phones Leonard and asks for a lift home. Leonard reluctantly does the right thing and invites Amy — who’s understandably pissed that »
Coming off of what showrunner Gary Glasberg has called a “tumultuous” Season 11 — during which two casting changes took place, the seeds were planted for a New Orleans spin-off and the passing of Ralph Waite was written in — CBS’ NCIS is back in “classic” form, Sean Murray tells TVLine.
The Season 12 opener (airing Tuesday at 8/7c) thrusts Murray’s McGee into a Russian hot zone with boss man Gibbs (played by Mark Harmon), paving the way for the introduction of a new adversary. Here, Murray previews all that and more.

The incredibly impressive and ambitious indie title No Man’s Sky just got that bit more awesome – according to Hello Games’ co-founder Sean Murray, visiting every procedurally-generated planet in the game will take over five billion years.
Apparently, in the early stages of development, Hello Games would use a 32-bit number to generate planets in-game. Even at that level, Murray says “with that 32-bit number it would take you four or five thousand years to see every planet if you spent only a second on each one.” However, the internet, being what it is, challenged that claim, so Hello Games took a step further.
So, instead of using a 32-bit number, they opted for 64, meaning that if you spent just one second on each planet, it would take you over five billion years to visit them all. Let’s hope there isn’t a trophy for seeing them all!

The enormously ambitious and anticipated indie game No Man’s Sky is no longer a PS4 exclusive – it’ll be coming to PC soon after.
The news isn’t overly surprising however as developer Hello Games have only ever said the PS4 exclusivity would be the game’s “console debut”, leading many people to correctly speculate for a long time that the game would make its way onto PC. The game is still a timed exclusive on the PS4 though, so don’t expect to see it release on the same day on PC.
“I actually got in a bit of trouble for saying that we wanted the game to feel really console-y,” says Sean Murray, No Man’s Sky managing director. “We’ve always had PC in mind but in my head (console-y) means solid framerate and immediate controls. I think a PC game can be ‘console-y’ and it’s intended as a compliment, »

In an interview with Edge Magazine, Hello Games announced that their planetary exploration title No Man’s Sky will be coming to the PC following its launch on the PlayStation 4.
No Man’s Sky made a huge splash during Sony’s E3 2014 press conference, as it stunned the crowd with an impressive gameplay trailer. During the conference, Sony announced that the title would hit the PlayStation 4 before any other platform. At the time, creator Sean Murray did not divulge what other consoles the title would eventually come to.
Speaking to Edge Magazine, Murray talked about why porting the title to the PC was always something the team had planned.
“I actually got in a bit of trouble for saying that we wanted the game to feel really ‘console-y. We’ve always had PC in mind but in my head [console-y] means solid framerate and immediate controls. I think a PC game »

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare
Sledgehammer Games has adamantly said that the footage seen in the E3 reel for "Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare" will Not be downgraded, and "what you see is what you get" on the Xbox One.
The company's co-founder Michael Condrey adds: "We've always had a commitment to delivering at target . We're not a studio that's just going to go out and show off some flash in the pan, high-end PC demo that we're never going to be able to put on a console." [Source: Total Xbox]
Mass Effect 4
Latest talk on the much anticipated sequel indicate the next entry in the series will be next gen console only (no PS3/360 version), and will run on the Frostbite 3 Engine. Though it will be the same type of game as the previous three, it's tipped this one "takes place in an entirely new region of space" which allows it to »
