The Walking Dead Companion Series Title Revealed

14 hours ago

The Walking Dead companion series is no longer nameless, as it its official title was revealed on Twitter by The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman today. And while the companion series’ title is not all that different from the original show’s, it certainly make its intentions known: it wants you to be afraid, which is why the new AMC series will be called Fear The Walking Dead. Fear The Walking Dead, which was given a two-season order from AMC earlier month, will take places in Los Angeles and serve as a prequel to the original Walking Dead series. The show stars Cliff Curtis (Gang Related), Kim Dickens (Deadwood), Frank Dillane (Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince) and Alycia Debnam-Carey (Lexa from The CW’s The 100). “We feel empowered by this two-season commitment, a serious show of faith from our network partner AMC,” Kirkman said when the companion series was ordered. »

The Mentalist’s Owain Yeoman to Play First Supergirl Villain

15 hours ago

Get ready to meet the first foe to go up against Kara in CBS’ Supergirl. The Mentalist‘s Owain Yeoman, who played Wayne Rigsby for years on the CBS series, will be taking on the role of the DC Comics character Vartox in Supergirl‘s pilot. In the comics, Vartox is originally an alien super-hero from the planet Valeron, who has similar powers to Superman and is a friend and ally to the Man of Steel. In addition to his Superman-like powers, Vartox can also convert himself into energy and control things with his mind. However, per TVLine, Supergirl‘s take on Vartox will be bit different. In the show’s pilot, Vartox is an “alien convict who has been hiding on Earth for 12 years. After Supergirl’s emergence as a public hero, he seeks her out to ascertain her identity and do battle with her.” Supergirl stars Glee‘s Melissa Benoist as Kara, »

Ford and Jimmy Kimmel Live! prank Guillermo

16 hours ago

Poor Guillermo. Actually should we say poor? The guy has quite a life (and probably living) being the butt of a pleathora of jokes on Jimmy Kimmel Live!. So it’s no surprise that even more fun was pointed at Kimmel’s funny little sidekick in their latest little prank. In this video you see Jimmy Kimmel Live! and Ford take Guillermo on one spicy ride when they put him in a Focus St with a stunt driver while asking him to make a taco. And yet again, Guillermo has us rolling on the floor.

The Walking Dead’s Norman Reedus Reportedly Selling His Atlanta-Area Home: What Does This Mean for Daryl?

16 hours ago

According to a local real estate website, Curbed Atlanta, The Walking Dead‘s Norman Reedus may be selling his Atlanta-area home, and it’s making some fans worried about the fate of Reedus’s beloved character, Daryl Dixon, on the hit AMC series. The fact that Reedus appears to be moving from the Atlanta area, along with reports that he’ll be The Walking Dead cast member featured on Sunday’s Talking Dead, has many people wondering if Daryl will be the latest character to die in the show’s Season 5 finale. However, one rumor, also discussed in the Curbed Atlanta article, disputes that theory, as it is believed that Reedus is selling his current home to move somewhere more remote, a place that he can have a bit more privacy, but one that’s still in the general area around Atlanta. Another piece of information that supports this idea »

New Reign Photos: Mary, Catherine, and Bash Worry for Francis’s Life

17 hours ago

Last week’s episode of Reign (the show’s last episode before it, along with The Vampire Diaries, went on yet another mini-hiatus—both shows will be back in three weeks) delivered some shocking twists, but none of them were as major as the turn that Francis took, as the king, who had been looking ill throughout the hour, collapsed and was last seen with blood pouring out of his ear, a clear image from Nostradamus’s prophecy. With Francis looking so deathly and defeated at the end of the episode (not to mention what historically happened to the real version of him), Reign fans must be wondering whether or not this will be the end for the young king, or if he somehow might recover. And perhaps just as interesting as the actual fate of Francis is how those around him will respond to it, particularly Mary, Catherine, and Bash, »

New Vampire Diaries Photos: Could Damon and Elena Be Headed Towards Another Break-Up?

18 hours ago

It’s been a pretty difficult year for Damon and Elena on The Vampire Diaries. Not only was Damon dead at the start of Season 6, but before he eventually returned from the prison world, where both he and Bonnie were trapped, Elena couldn’t deal with the pain of his loss and decided to compel all her memories of him away, forcing the two of them to have to essentially start their relationship over again. And while things have been pretty good for the couple since they’ve gotten back together, these photos from the next all-new episode of The Vampire Diaries, titled “I Could Never Love You Like That,” don’t paint the happiest of pictures, as both Damon and Elena appear to be upset about something, and I’m guessing that something isn’t just Stefan and Caroline being rippers together. Instead, it looks like the cure, which made its oh-so grand reappearance… »

What Have Been Your Favorite New TV Shows of 2015 So Far?

26 March 2015 12:24 PM, PDT

2015 has already seen the end of many long-running series, including Parenthood, Parks and Recreation, and Glee, and in a matter of weeks, Justified and Mad Men will also be joining that list of concluded shows (and that’s all within the first six months of this year!). Yet while myself (and probably others) have looked at 2015 as merely a year in which many great (or, if not great, at least impactful) series are ending, it’s also been a terrific year for new shows, even within these first three months. Since January, 2015 has gifted us with so many quality programs, some big and some small, that it’s nearly impossible to choose a favorite, especially because there’s so much variety. A little over a week ago, The CW premiered its newest series, iZombie, which I’ve been fortunate enough to review for TVOvermind, and in my write-up of the show’s second episode, »

Taraji P. Henson and Michael Keaton to Host Saturday Night Live in April

26 March 2015 10:32 AM, PDT

Things will be getting pretty sweet (and also sassy, of course) on Saturday Night Live when Cookie herself, Taraji P. Henson, stops by next month. The Empire actress will make her SNL hosting debut in April, but not before Birdman‘s Michael Keaton takes over first. As Saturday Night Live begins its April run, Keaton will host the show’s April 4 episode, with musical guest Carly Rae Jepsen, who will be performing for the first time ever on SNL. Then, the following Saturday, on April 11, Henson will get her opportunity to take the reins of Saturday Night Live for her first time, and she will be joined by Mumford & Sons as the night’s musical guest. The fact that Henson has already been tapped as a host for Saturday Night Live  is yet another sign of Empire‘s pop culture dominance (you know, if the record-breaking ratings weren’t already »

Downton Abbey Officially Ending After Season 6

26 March 2015 9:30 AM, PDT

. Downton Abbey fans will soon be saying goodbye to the Crawley family and the rest of the show’s many characters, as it was officially announced today, after months of speculation, that Season 6 of the period drama will be its last. “Millions of people around the world have followed the journey of the Crawley family and those who serve them for the last five years,” said executive producer Gareth Neame. “Inevitably there comes a time when all shows should end and Downton is no exception. We wanted to close the doors of Downton Abbey when it felt right and natural for the storylines to come together and when the show was still being enjoyed so much by its fans. We can promise a final season full of all the usual drama and intrigue, but with the added excitement of discovering how and where they all end up…” “The Downton…

The Best and Worst Songs From Nashville: On the Record 2

26 March 2015 6:30 AM, PDT

Oh how I wish I could have been at this concert! Last night’s Nashville was not a new episode, but rather a tribute to the music that keeps this country sudser a cut above others. After all, what is Nashville without the music? Okay, it’s pretty good, but the music just makes it better and is good all on its own, too. So let’s review tonight’s concert, and discuss what has happened in Season 3 so far, as well as what lies ahead. “Borrow My Heart”- Jonathan Jackson, Sam Palladio and Clare Bowen This is the true trio of Nashville. The decision to actually make them a trio on the show was long overdue, and this upbeat song was perfect for them. Plus, since Scarlett has long been (too long!) a very weepy character, it is wonderful to see her portrayer Clare Bowen freely dancing about on stage. »

The Best and Worst of Ross’ Girlfriends on ‘Friends’

26 March 2015 5:53 AM, PDT

Spring is finally here and that means for people like myself living in the northwestern region of the United States, that the snow is finally starting to melt. For Friends fans it does not matter, as we are still watching the classic sitcom that was released on Netflix earlier this year and will not be setting foot outside until we have watched the series finale. Last week, we at TVOvermind took a walk down memory lane and ranked all of Rachel Green’s boyfriends on Friends. If you did not get a chance to read the article, you can check it out by clicking here. Ross Geller was the boyfriend that topped Rachel’s list, but where does Rachel Green rank on the paleontologist’s list? Here is a ranking all the women from Ross’ life, which includes a girl with a dirty apartment, the hot copy girl, and all »

Making the Case for Renewal: The Mindy Project

25 March 2015 11:46 AM, PDT

The Mindy Project capped off its very strong third season last night with a fantastic finale (check out my colleague Jen’s review of the episode right here) that, once again, illustrated how much Danny and Mindy love each other but also showed the very real differences between the two of them, types of differences that could have potentially led to a break-up for one of TV’s best couples. Fortunately, Mindy Kaling is a great writer that not only loves and understands the basic format of the romantic comedy but also knows these two characters better than anybody else, so when Danny told Mindy he was going to Austin for Peter’s wedding, only to really fly to India to meet her parents, his actions felt real and honest, despite how grand and cinematic they actually were. It’s that perfect blend of real life emotion and romantic fantasy that makes The Mindy… »

HBO Cancels Looking, Reveals Special Will Tell the Show’s “Final Chapter”

25 March 2015 9:18 AM, PDT

We’ve got some pretty bad news but also some good news for fans of HBO’s series Looking. Unfortunately, the cable network has decided to cancel the series after its first two critically-acclaimed but little-watched seasons. However, as I hinted at, there is some good news for fans, as HBO has also announced that it will air a Looking special that will tell the “final chapter” of the story of Patrick and his friends, whose up-and-down lives in San Francisco (both romantically and otherwise) have been the focus of the series throughout its short run. “After two years of following Patrick and his tight-knit group of friends as they explored San Francisco in search of love and lasting relationships, HBO will present the final chapter of their journey as a special,” the network revealed in a statement Wednesday. “We look forward to sharing this adventure with the show’s loyal fans. »
