Ariel Winter is channeling her inner mermaid. Well, one in particular, at least. "Soooooo....I dyed my hair red....#littlemermaid," the Modern Family star tweeted on March 24 along with an Instagram pic of her new red hair. Of course, it is rather appropriate, given how she does share a name with the beloved Disney character. And hey, if the normally brunette 15-year-old actress wants to do a little experimenting with her locks, why not? After all, having just renegotiated her Modern Family contract to the tune of $6 million, she certainly has the means to change 'em up any way she wants! »

In what is further proof that web video are the entertainment of the future, "Modern Family" star Ariel Winter is the star of a new online series on College Humor. The three-part series is a funny, action-packed take on the popular kids' TV show "Dora the Explorer."
This live-action version, definitely not for kids, finds characters from the show in a large action-adventure setting, similar to "Indiana Jones." Dora, her friend Diego, and trusty pet monkey Boots are in search of the Destiny Medallion, and they have to get to it before Swiper, no longer a fox, does. If they don't, he'll swipe it, because that's what he does.
The shorts have fun playing with aspects of the TV show, including Dora addressing the camera, waiting for the audience to solve puzzles for her, and translating Spanish to English. The first two episodes have been released, with the third scheduled to come out next week. »
A woman who needs no introduction, Joan Rivers, enters the web series fray via the boudoir, a late-night host offers advice to teens, Phil Dunphy’s middle daughter reprises her viral video role and popular website Reddit launches a YouTube series.
Explain Like I’m Five | The subreddit ELI5 purports to be a place where one can ask questions about really anything without fear of judgment.

Things are getting curiouser and curiouser with the Once Upon a Time spin-off.
Once consulting producer Jane Espenson and Prison Break alum Zack Estrin, as part of a new overall deal with ABC Studios, have boarded the prospective offshoot, which will be set in Wonderland, our sister site Deadline reports. The project is envisioned as an American Horror Story-style 13-episode standalone that would ostensibly bridge the original series’ winter hiatus.

I missed the passing of out comedian Scott Kennedy last week. Scott was out when it wasn't easy to be out, and traveled to Iraq and Afghanistan more than 50 times to perform for the troops, despite it not being the most welcoming environment. Dave Holmes has a great tribute to the man, and we're left in a world with fewer laughs because of his passing.
Friend of the site Jane Espenson is reportedly writing a spinoff to Once Upon a Time, to take place in Wonderland, structured as a series of complete arcs like American Horror Story. The only problem is that Jane has tweeted that there are several inaccuracies in the reports, but she's not saying which ones.
College Humor is turning one of its 30 million one-off shorts (give or take) into a full web show. The comedy channel will turn its ridiculous parody of Dora the Explorer into a mock action series. Hola mis amigos, indeed. The Dora the Explorer Miniseries will star Modern Family's Ariel Winter as the titular adventurer, a world class thief (she prefers the term "explorer") who helps the authorities capture her evasive nemesis, Swiper. Along the way, she will kick ass, take names, and teach plenty of important Spanish phrases. Me gusta! The first episode of Dora arrives on March 19th. As long as College Humor is now listening to fan requests, I would love to see this Seth MacFarlane gag built out into a full series. Of course, I would gladly give that up if it meant more Badman

From my Irish heart to you, Happy St. Patrick's Day!
Out boxer Orlando Cruz has won his second fight since coming out, defeating Aaron Martinez in a 6th round technical knockout. Cruz wore his trademark boxing kilt, made of two flags, the Puerto Rican flag on one side, and a Pride flag on the other.
Oz the Great and Powerful is cruising to another box office win with $42 million, followed by Halle Berry's The Call at $17 million, with Burt Wonderstone coming in a disappointing third with $11 million.
No, this is not a joke. Ok, well it is kind of a joke. The brilliant minds over at College Humor put together a fake trailer for a Dora The Explorer movie featuring Modern Family star Ariel Winter in the title role. The trailer for Dora The Explorer And The Destiny Medallion garnered so much attention on Facebook and YouTube that the site decided to produce a three part web series. Beginning on March 19th the series looks like a combination of the Nickelodeon series and the Indiana Jones »

As is always the case, a TV series about a little princess has proven to be extraordinarily popular with our children, leading to Disney Junior’s Sofia the First being renewed for a second season. Personally, I thought the children’s series could use a little more draw for young lads, maybe toss in a ninja prince or something equally appealing to the male gender. But that would only be a good idea if Sofia the First wanted to completely ignore its target audience and it’s a good thing it didn’t – it’s the number one TV show for kids 2-5. You just can’t beat numbers like that.
Interestingly enough, Sofia the First is, according to the Hollywood Reporter, the top show for both girls and boys in the demographic, as well as in total viewers, particularly in women 18-49. What this means is parents feel comfortable »

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
This is the animated movie adaptation of Frank Miller’s legendary comic book, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns. The book was originally four issues which can be broken down roughly as Batman fights 1) Two-Face, 2) Mutant Leader, 3) Joker, and 4) Superman – in Part 1 we get 1) and 2) though it isn’t just fighting as we see Bruce’s journey back to being the Dark Knight after a 10 year break. It is an incredibly faithful version of Miller’s story, often praised as the greatest Batman story ever told, and it’s because of this faithfulness to the original book that it’s impossible to talk about this film without comparing the two. It’s strict adherence to the book might be the reason why the film was released in 2 parts so as not to leave anything out without making it an over-long watch (though, yes, I do know it »

Modern Family is showing one of its stars the money. Ariel Winter has renegotiated her contract with the hit ABC sitcom, scoring $6 million, according to court documents obtained by E! News. The 15-year-old, who plays Alex Dunphy, is currently under her sister Shanelle Gray's guardianship after her mother Chrisoula Workman was accused of emotionally abusing the actress. "The minor's professional career was protected from chronic and unwarranted interference by the mother which had prevented the minor's execution of a renegotiated contract for her starring role in the television sitcom, Modern Family, which contract has a value in excess of $6,000,000," a reply memorandum »
