RelatedBaby Daddy Renewed for Season 6
In TVLine’s exclusive clip from Wednesday’s episode (Freeform, 8:30/7:30c), Riley and “old man” Ross (Cibrian) engage in an uncomfortable morning-after chat with Ben and “Ms. Gilcrest” (Sigler) in the hallway of their apartment building.
But what could possibly be awkward about running into your ex-girlfriend — who’s also your brother’s ex-girlfriend — after she just slept with another of her exes, »
In a truly unprecedented twist, Tuesday’s Pretty Little Liars actually provided an answer to one of the biggest mysteries of the season. (Trust me, I’m just as surprised — and satisfied — as you are.)

The mystery, of course, was “Who were the Liars burying in the season premiere?” And the answer, as revealed in the episode’s final moments, was Elliott. The latex lover was mowed down by Hanna as she and the girls combed the woods for Alison, who had just escaped from her husband/doctor/tormenter’s clutches. »

TVLine has an exclusive clip from Tuesday’s episode (Freeform, 8/7c), in which Emily tells the other girls what she learned about Elliott and Mary Drake, that they’re “familiar with each other.”
Cue one of the Liars’ classic brainstorming sessions! (I’d say I’m going to miss these little chats, but that would imply that »
Everyone was on the hunt for Abigail, Maggie kicked Victor out, and Kate tried to thwart Deimos return to Salem.
Our TV Fanatics Jack Ori and Christine Orlando are joined by Oquossoc from MyHourglass a Days of Our Lives fan forum to debate the Devereaux’s distrust of Chad, what’s Philip Kiriakis’ future and if Victor and Maggie’s marriage can survive.
Are Jennifer and Jj right to distrust Chad?
Jack: Yes! While Chad is generally trustworthy, he has explicitly stated he will hide Abigail from Jj and Jennifer should he find her first and that he plans to use his ability to break the law to do so. It's very clear he's not thinking straight and that he sees the rest of Abby's family as the "enemy" right now.
Oquossoc: Maybe it isn't entirely unreasonable, but I think they are a bit quick to turn on him when »

Kk: First of all can I just say that I absolutely loved your film, it blew me away. For a first feature as well, it’s such an impressive feat, there’s just so much to take away from it and read into it. Tell me a little bit about how you came up with the idea for it, the very concept is quite intriguing.
As: I think that a lot of first-time feature makers are kind of around the age of 24, and I’m kind of long in the tooth now, because I was working in theatre and opera, and was an actor before that. So whilst it’s a first feature, I hope that the experience I had in theatre and opera kind of lends a bit of weight to »

The new mom - who gave birth to Prince Alexander on April 19 - was joined by her husband Prince Carl Philip to honor his father, King Carl Gustaf, for a special Te Deum Thanksgiving Service at the Royal Palace in honor of the monarch's 70th birthday on Saturday. Sofia looked elegant in a short-sleeved light pink dress while Carl Philip donned his traditional navy uniform. Meanwhile, Carl Philip's sister Crown Princess Victoria - who gave birth to her second child, »

A review of tonight's The Americans coming up just as soon as I vandalize a payphone for the greater good... "The sentence of death will remain unchanged. It will be carried out shortly." -Soviet administrator Let's start off with a transcript of every single conversation I had with other TV critics after one of us had just finished watching tonight's episode. If the phrasing wasn't identical from one conversation to the next, it was pretty damn close: Other critic: "Nina Sergeevna!!!!!!!" Me: "Niiiiinaaaaaaaa!!!!!" Other critic: "Those bastards!" Me: "Fields and Weisberg are inhuman monsters!" Other critic: "I can't believe they killed her off! Nina is the best!" (long pause) Me: "But they had to do it." Other critic: "Oh, absolutely." We make a pact with our dramas — particularly the profoundly serious, ambitious ones like The Americans — where ask them to fully commit to the implications of their stories, and where »

Tonight's The Americans was a particularly momentous installment of the series (here's my review), and one that prompted me to get on the phone with showrunners Joe Weisberg and Joel Fields to talk about what happened, and why, and also where their heads are at as the series gets ever closer to its conclusion(*). (*) Though there's been no renewal yet (FX almost always waits until very late in a show's current season to do it), the default assumption from everyone on the show and at the network seems to be that there will definitely be a fifth season, and possibly a sixth if Fields and Weisberg decide the story needs two years rather than one for a proper ending. Very big spoilers are coming up just as soon as I tell you about the married man I'm dating... So, as everyone who watched knows, Nina (Annet Mahendru) was executed by »

Mubi in the United Kingdom is showing P.S. Jerusalem in partnership with the Human Rights Watch Film Festival. The film will run on Mubi from March 15 - April 14, 2016.“We have seen that what men thought was true was often more than the truth itself. The origins of Israel bear witness to the power wielded by ideas over the minds of men.” —The Israelis: Founders and Sons, Amos Elon“You never went back there?”“Sometimes to return is a vulgarity.” —The Magus, John FowlesUnder a falling iris sky, three boys huddle in hooded sweatshirts; conspirators at dusk. All are under ten years of age. Cloaked in streetlamp bronze and clutching skateboards longer than their torsos, they creep along a thin alleyway leading to the car park that serves Heikhal David Synagogue in Pat, a Jewish neighborhood in Southwest Jerusalem. They near Nishmat, an advanced school for women studying the Torah. One of the boys says, »

“There are several ways we’ve backed ourselves into a corner” with Thursday’s Season 2 finale (10/9c on ABC), he explains. “That’s my favorite thing to do, but it means I really don’t know [which direction] we’ll head next.”

On The Americans, Alison Wright plays Martha Hanson, the dowdy, plain, timid secretary to FBI counter-intelligence agent Gaad, and secret wife to Clark, one of the many aliases of Matthew Rhys' Kgb deep cover operative Philip Jennings. In real life, Wright is striking in appearance, speaks loudly and confidently in her native English accent, and dresses far more stylishly (here's what she wore when I interviewed her in January) than her alter ego. In other words... acting! The Americans returns Wednesday night at 10 on FX. It was, is, and will likely continue to be for as long as it's on the air (my guess would be we have at least another season to look forward to after this one), one of the very best shows on TV. The first four episodes are stunning, and the premiere in particular is a great showcase for Wright as Martha. I will be, »
