Why FX Is the Best Cable Network on TV

10 hours ago

About a month ago, I wrote a piece about why I believe The CW is the best broadcast network on television, and I stand by that claim, even more so since fully catching up with series like The 100, Jane the Virgin, and Reign. However, if The CW is the best that broadcast television has to offer, which network is the king of cable? While some would suggest HBO or even AMC, both struggle to match the success and quality of FX, which is truly the best cable network on TV, and there are many reasons why. First, like The CW, FX’s lineup of shows over the past couple of years, when it comes to both drama and comedy, is unmatched. Despite HBO having two of what I consider to be the best series on television, Game of Thrones and The Leftovers, the network doesn’t have FX’s depth, »

Game of Thrones Season 5 Trailer Shows Vengeful Cersei, Bearded Tyrion, and Determined Daenerys

11 hours ago

As many already know, the final two episodes of Game of Thrones‘ fourth season began showing in IMAX theaters across the United States last night, and along with those two episodes was the first official trailer for Game of Thrones Season 5. If you weren’t able to get tickets to one of the IMAX screenings, or a theater in your area simply isn’t showing Game of Thrones, don’t worry: one fan was willing to film the entire trailer and has since posted the footage to YouTube. The trailer opens with Jamie Lannister standing over the body of his father, Tywin, which is displayed for a vigil in the Great Sept. We then soon get our first images of Tyrion, who has traveled across the narrow see with Varys and is now sporting quite the beard as a disguise; Cersei, who is as vengeful as ever, dedicated to finding and punishing… »

Why Hannibal’s Delay Is a Good Thing

12 hours ago

Last week, there was a collective scream from Hannibal fans when it was announced by NBC the show’s third season would be delayed until at least the summer. Stag heads were burned, large knives were brandished – it wasn’t a pretty scene, furthered by the typical fan paranoia that a delay means imminent cancellation. While I’m sad to hear of Hannibal‘s delay, I can’t help but be a little excited about the prospect of Hannibal airing over the summer. Why? The reason is two-fold; first of all, it lessens the financial risk on NBC’s back. Sure, Hannibal isn’t paid for directly out of NBC’s pocket – but regardless, ad sales (or the lack of them) can quickly lead to cancellations. Expecting big numbers out of Hannibal was never really a reality anyway, something NBC knew when they pushed it to Friday nights for its second season. »

Where Are They Now? The Cast of Step by Step

12 hours ago

Television of the 21st century highly differs from a lot of the TV we got in the 20th century. In the 90’s, it was considered cool to have your television series on Friday nights. However, if your show gets put on the schedule for Friday night today, it could mean it is on the road to cancellation. That does not hold true for all series. ABC shows’ Last Man Standing and Shark Tank continue to draw in an audience while the NBC drama Grimm continues to thrive on Friday nights. ABC’s popular Tgif lineup premiered in 1989 and some of your favorite family sitcoms would air on this special night of programming. One of those series is Step by Step. The series would remain on the alphabet network from 1991-1997. It would then move over to CBS and air one additional season. Here is what the cast of Step by Step is up to today. »

New The Flash Photos: Barry Introduces Iris to His New Girlfriend

14 hours ago

Guys like us don’t get the girl,” Oliver told Barry back in the first part of The Flash and Arrow‘s two-night crossover event, and while he may have been right (at least for the moment) about Barry and Iris, that isn’t going to stop Central City’s hero from trying to find love with someone else. And that’s exactly what Barry, along with Caitlin, does in next Tuesday’s episode of The Flash, titled “Crazy for You,” as he meets the lovely Linda Park (played by The Vampire Diaries alum Malese Jow) and even, as these photos show, introduces her to Iris. That won’t be the least bit awkward at all, will it? Elsewhere in the episode, Barry and the team set their sights on Shawna (Britne Oldford), who isn’t exactly using her teleportation powers for good, as she breaks her boyfriend out of prison. »

New Arrow Photos Preview Bloody Brick, Sin’s Return, and Oliver’s Journey Home

14 hours ago

Arrow will be bringing its Daniel Brickwell trilogy to a close next Wednesday when an all-out battle for The Glades breaks out between Brick (Vinnie Jones) and his men and Team Arrow and their very large army of fighters. And as the photos from the episode, titled “Uprising,” show, it’s going to be a bloody and brutal fight. Additionally, this epic battle for The Glades will give fans the return of one very memorable character, as Sara and Roy’s friend Sin (The Killing‘s Bex Taylor-Klaus) shows up to join the fight. The question, though, is will Sin’s reappearance and her seeing Laurel as Black Canary convince Laurel to finally tell her father the truth about Sara’s death. Or, perhaps, could Sin be the one to reveal the news to Captain Lance, once she realizes why Laurel has now donned the infamous identity that her sister once held? »

Rachael Taylor Joins Marvel’s A.K.A. Jessica Jones As Trish Walker

20 hours ago

The cast for Marvel’s A.K.A. Jessica Jones continues to grow, as Rachael Taylor has now joined the upcoming Netflix series. As first reported by Marvel.com, Taylor will play Patricia “Trish” Walker, a character that has roots dating back to 1944 and one that may possibly become a superhero herself if the writers decide to have her don the identity of Hellcat. Per Marvel, Taylor’s Trish is “a syndicated radio talk show host, former model and child TV star known to her adoring fans as “Patsy” Walker. As Jessica Jones’ closest friend, Trish helps her embark on the most dangerous case of Jessica’s career.” She joins a cast that already includes Don’t Trust the B— in Apartment 23‘s Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones, Doctor Who‘s David Tennant as Kilgrave, and The Good Wife‘s Mike Colter as Luke Cage, a character who will soon be »

New Supernatural Photos: Sam and Teenage Dean Battle An Evil Witch

20 hours ago

Well, this is something I certainly can’t say too often, but Jensen Ackles is nowhere to be found in these photos from next week’s Supernatural, titled “About a Boy.” Instead, guest star Dylan Everett will be portraying Dean’s 14-year-old self, since Hansel (of Hansel and Gretel, not Owen Wilson’s character from Zoolander) transforms the older Winchester brother into a teenager in order to hand him over to the evil witch. Yes, you read that right: Hansel will be working with, not against, the evil witch—that’s quite a change from the original story. It will certainly be interesting to see how Supernatural deals with the dynamic between Sam and young Dean. We’ve seen the two brothers work together when Dean was an old man (back in in the Season 5 episode “The Curious Case of Dean Winchester”), but will Sam be willing to listen to »

Rafael Comforts Jane At the Hospital in New Jane the Virgin Photos

29 January 2015 10:28 AM, PST

While Rafael struggled to impress Jane’s mother, Xo, in this week’s episode of Jane the Virgin, he may have to show the strength of his character in a much more serious situation if these new photos are any indication. In the picture above, along with the ones below, from “Chapter Thirteen,” airing on Monday, Feb. 9, it appears that Jane will be needing to lean on Rafael (both literally and figuratively) after facing a medical issue, one that may even cause her to miss her own graduation ceremony. Elsewhere in the episode, it appears that things remain as good as ever between Xo and Rogelio, as the new couple get close (but not too close, at least if Xo is still attempt to keep her chastity promise). However, what’s causing Xo’s scowl and Rogelio’s frightened look in one of the pictures? We know it can’t »

The Vampire Diaries Photos: Will Stefan and Caroline Be a Couple By Jeremy’s Farewell Episode?

29 January 2015 9:15 AM, PST

One of the best parts of The Vampire Diaries Season 6 so far (for me, at least) has been the developing relationship between Stefan and Caroline. Whether you consider yourself a “Steroline” shipper, or whether you just enjoy the friendship that the two characters have together, this season has been full of some great moments between them, and as evidenced by the photo above (along with the photos below) from the Feb. 12th episode of The Vampire Diaries, titled “Stay,” there are plenty more moments ahead for Stefan and Caroline. The only question that remains is simple: will they have these moments together as friends, or as a couple? Additionally, “Stay” will serve as The Vampire Diaries‘ farewell episode to Jeremy and the actor who portrays him, Steven R. McQueen, who will be leaving the show as a series regular. While the door is open for McQueen to make guest…

Netflix’s Wet Hot American Summer Adds Jon Hamm, Chris Pine, and More

29 January 2015 8:49 AM, PST

If you thought the cast of Netflix’s Wet Hot American Summer series couldn’t get any better, you were wrong. As first reported by Deadline, Jon Hamm (Mad Men), Chris Pine (Into the Woods), Kristen Wiig (Saturday Night Live), and Jason Schwartzman (Bored to Death) have now also joined the cast of the revival. Per Deadline, Hamm will play a spy (I cannot wait to see that), while Wiig will play a snobby counselor at the preppy Camp Tigerclaw, rival to Camp Firewood. Schwartzman will reportedly be the boy’s camp’s head counselor, and interestingly, Pine’s role is simply described as “mysterious.” All four of these new roles will be either guest star or recurring. Hamm, Pine, Wiig, and Schwartzman join the film’s original cast, which includes Elizabeth Banks (The Hunger Games films), Michael Ian Black (The State), Bradley Cooper (American Sniper), Janeane Garofalo (Girlfriends’ Guide »

True Blood’s Mehcad Brooks Joins Supergirl As Jimmy Olsen

29 January 2015 6:09 AM, PST

Last week it was reported that Glee and Whiplash actress Melissa Benoist had been cast as the lead in Greg Berlanti’s (Arrow, The Flash) and Ali Adler’s (The New Normal, Chuck) Supergirl TV show that is coming to CBS. Now, we have even more casting news to report, as CBS and Warner Bros. TV have announced that True Blood’s Mehcad Brooks has been cast as James Olsen. To Superman fans, they will recognize him as Jimmy Olsen, although based on the reports: it seems that he will mostly be referred to by his full name, James. On the show, James is a photographer at CatCo (Cat Grant’s company) where Kara (Benoist) works as well. He has been working and living in National City recently; however, the reason is being kept as a secret. In addition, James is being aimed as a love interest for Kara. In addition to True Blood, »

The Best of the Best ‘Friends’ Season 9 Episodes

29 January 2015 5:53 AM, PST

It is hard to believe we are already in the ninth week of our quest to give our readers a list of the best episodes from the super funny and awesome sitcom Friends. Netflix has been streaming the series since January 1, and we have heard from many fans that they have been sitting in front of their television for hours on end watching Joey become a soap opera star then falling to his death down an elevator shaft, or Rachel pining over her hot younger assistant, or Chandler moving to Tulsa after falling asleep at a work meeting. This week we will be discussing the top three episodes of the ninth season of Friends.  This is the season that Phoebe began dating Mike, Ross holds a fake funeral for himself, and Monica takes a stab at singing karaoke. “The One with Phoebe’s Birthday Dinner,” original air date October 31,…

New The Originals Photos: Hayley and Jackson Become a Part of Finn’s “Dangerous Plan”

28 January 2015 12:21 PM, PST

This Monday’s episode of The Originals proved just how strong Finn (or Vincent, as some people are still calling him) truly is, when he brought all three of his brothers into a dream-like state with him in an attempt to pit them all against one another. While Finn’s original plan didn’t exactly go as well as he wanted it to (Klaus and Elijah ended up deconstructing the virtual room he had stuck them in, escaping from Finn’s grasp for at least the time being), he did discover that Klaus has been hiding a secret from him, and he is determined to find out what exactly that secret is. From the looks of the trailer for next week’s episode, it appears that Finn will go after Marcel next in order to get the information he wants. However, in the Feb. 9th installment of The Originals, titled “The Devil is Damned, »

Budweiser’s ‘Lost Dog’ Super Bowl Commercial Reunites Last Year’s Infamous Puppy and Horse

28 January 2015 11:49 AM, PST

While I don’t really care which team ends up winning the Super Bowl this Sunday (as a Philadelphia Eagles fan, I have no preference for either the Seahawks or the Patriots, although I am a big fan of Russell Wilson—guy’s a good dude), I, like many others I’m sure, will be tuning in to watch some of the entertaining commercials of the year, one of which has already been released earlier today. Most people will probably remember last year’s infamous Budweiser duo, the puppy and the Clydesdale horse, who became the best of friends and, together, created one of the best Super Bowl commercials in recent memory, all set to the sounds of Passenger’s “Let It Go.” Now, in 2015, the pair has reunited in Budweiser’s new “Lost Dog” Super Bowl ad, and if the wetness in my eyes is any indication, I’d »

The Vampire Diaries Photos: Stefan and Caroline Wait For News About Her Mom

28 January 2015 11:29 AM, PST

While we already showed you photos from next week’s episode of The Vampire Diaries yesterday, we finally have some pictures from this week’s pivotal hour, “Prayer for the Dying,” which will determine the fate of Caroline’s mother (and Mystic Falls sheriff) Liz Forbes. As we saw in last week’s episode of The Vampire Diaries, Caroline’s decision to give her mom, who is dying from cancer, her blood turned out to be a tragic one, as it won’t save her as she had predicted, but will only accelerate Liz’s death unless something else can be done to heal her. And as the previews for tomorrow night’s episode have already showed us, Liz’s chances of survival don’t appear to be great. Also in the episode, Liv and Luke’s father arrives in Mystic Falls to celebrate their birthday and ensure that either »
