Who’s that? What did she just say? Wait, he’s English? Here are the things we don’t admit when watching acclaimed TV shows…
Omission makes the world go round. Without the art of keeping things to ourselves, most social interactions would disintegrate within seconds. Too much soul-baring honesty would snap the taut bonds that keep us all from running screaming through the Toby Carvery of a Sunday lunchtime jabbing family members with corn-on-the-cob prongs. We’re a tightly wound, insular people, the British. It takes court injunctions and Jeremy Kyle to prise loose our secrets.
Every so often though, it does us good to share. It’s cathartic to confess, between friends, that we’re sometimes a little bit lacking or dim. In the spirit of honesty and self-improvement then, here are the things we’d rather not admit to »

This review contains spoilers.
“We’ve not forgotten the Devil’s Whore” said villainous Judge Jeffreys in a much-needed exposition scene in the New Worlds opener. With any luck, neither will have the viewers because tonight’s hour cut little slack for anyone dozing at the back.
More historical water had passed under the bridge between the 2008 Civil War drama and its follow-up than could comfortably fit onto a single context-setting slide, hence New Worlds providing three of them (a ‘previously on’ montage of the original’s knobbing and beheadings, while useful, wouldn’t really have been the done thing). Two decades of Restoration wig-wearing, colonisation and prole-subjugation had gone on since Angelica Fanshawe was left holding Edward Sexby’s baby at the end of The Devil’s Whore, »

Wednesday (March 26) "Today" anchor Matt Lauer is hosting a special one-hour news piece on NBC that will look at Prince Harry's recent trek to the South Pole, called "Prince Harry's South Pole Heroes."
The British royal was accompanied on his expedition by actors Alexander Skarsgard and Dominic West, plus a group of wounded veterans. Originally, the trek was meant to be a race between three teams (U.S., Britain and the Commonwealth), but upon discovering just how harst the conditions were, the accompanying doctors advised the teams to eliminate the race aspect and work together to accomplish their goal of reaching the South Pole.
The event was put on to help Walking With the Wounded, a U.K.-based charity that trains and educates wounded servicemen and -women after they have left the armed forces. It is one of several charities for which Prince Harry serves as patron. »
Exclusive: Protagonist selected for international sales training pilot.
UK sales outfit Protagonist Pictures will house a new film sales training scheme backed by Creative Skillset.
The scheme will see three trainees take part in paid four-month stints at the company, where they will learn about the different departments of an international sales company.
The training will include attendance at Cannes, Berlin or Afm, with travel and accommodation costs covered by training body Skillset.
As part of the pilot initiative Skillset is also backing language training for existing staff at the London-based Protagonist.
Protagonist CEO Mike Goodridge said: “The sales and distribution sector traditionally has very few formal training initiatives, yet a sales company in 2014 is key to the independent film sector. This programme will allow an industry trainee to immerse himself or herself in the nuts and bolts of sales and distribution, as well as development, acquisition, finance and marketing.”

Ello, Ellen! Joan Collins gathered a group of British celebrities to recreate Ellen DeGeneres' amazing selfie from the 2014 Oscars on the red carpet of the Prince's Trust and Samsung Celebrate Success Awards on Wednesday, March 12. Joining 80-year-old Collins for the picture-perfect moment were Sir Ben Kingsley, Dominic West, Luke Evans, Jeremy Irons, Pixie Lott, and other U.K. stars. "'Selfie' support," Collins captioned the pic via Twitter. The Dynasty alum apparently attempted, even, to get Prince Charles to join in on the selfie, but the Daily [...] »
Prince Charles apparently wasn't interested in following the selfie steps of Brad Pitt and Bradley Cooper, let alone The Simpsons and various Lego figures. Armed with a smart phone, Joan Collins rangled a number of fellow U.K.-born celebs into recreating Ellen DeGeneres' A-list-packed Oscars selfie today at the Prince's Trust and Samsung Celebrate Success Awards. But while the likes of Luke Evans, Sir Ben Kingsley, Dominic West and Jeremy Irons joined in, even Alexis Carrington herself couldn't seduce the Prince of Wales into participating. Charles posed for regular photos with the group, but an eyewitness told the Daily Mail that he appeared to »
Rise of an Empire is a fine sequel to 300, but People's critic says you should check into The Grand Budapest Hotel instead. Here's what to see and what to skip in theaters this weekend. See thisThe Grand Budapest HotelWhimsy gets such a crappy rap. Granted, too many directors use it poorly, spraying their sketchily plotted, inartfully written films with cinematic chintz. But Wes Anderson is of an entirely different vintage. He uses massive amounts of whimsy - more than just about anyone else - but the difference is that he knows just how. Take The Grand Budapest Hotel, for instance. »

Helena and Dominic are Dick and Liz in Burton and Taylor.
The film is set in 1983, when Elizabeth Taylor and her ex-husband (twice over!) Richard Burton star in a Broadway stage revival of the Noel Coward play Private Lives. With the middle-aged Taylor’s pill-popping and lack of stage experience and Burton’s ongoing struggle to control his drinking and a new girlfriend who may become his wife, the lives—both private and public of the two legendary stars prove to be both tempestuous, dramatic and funny!
The star of That Awkward Moment has used his 'go-getting mentality' to graduate from teen sitcom bit-parts to adult movie roles. He's even acclaimed as one of the 30 under-30s who is changing the world
"Women still want the old-fashioned love story, but it's 2014, and things are a little different now," says Michael B Jordan, authoritatively. "Thanks to Facebook, you can pretty much do a full background check on somebody before you even meet them, and with Tinder, you're constantly window-shopping." He waves his iPhone in my direction before placing it firmly facedown on the coffee table. "I think that changes the way we approach and interact with women. But our [by which, I think he means women's] idea of what love and relationships should be hasn't updated to keep up with the times."

While most networks defer to the ratings juggernaut of the Super Bowl, Showtime plans a night of counter-programming with new episodes of “Shameless,” “House of Lies” and “Episodes.” The network announced the scheduling changes Friday, nine days ahead of the game. Other networks often run reruns on Super Bowl Sunday, ceding the night because the Super Bowl is inevitably the most-watched program of the year. It also provides huge boosts to the shows that follow it.
