How Emma’s Dark Turn On Once Upon a Time Has Reinvigorated the Series

1 hour ago

After a couple of less than stellar episodes in the second half of Season 4, Once Upon a Time has bounced back in a big way over the past two weeks, delivering tense scenes and memorable exchanges like the series hasn’t done since back in its terrific first season (those were the days, weren’t they?). So what’s been the cause of this creative resurgence as we near the end of Once‘s fourth season? It’s pretty simple, actually: the show’s writers have allowed Emma to become a little bit of a darker character, as Rumpelstiltskin attempts to use her as part of the plan, and that has made every single one of Emma’s decisions lately more dynamic and, for the the first time in a what feels like forever, given the series’ main character a new storyline that is solely her own. In recent seasons, »

CBS Unveils ‘The Briefcase,’ New Reality Series That Will Test the Values of Families

4 hours ago

Are you ready to open CBS’ Briefcase? The network has announce an all-new reality series called The Briefcase that will debut this summer and feature “hard-working American families” that are dealing with financial setbacks. These families are then presented with a briefcase, which holds a large sum of money and a potentially life-altering decision: the members of the family can keep all of the money for themselves, or give all or part of it to another family in need. Per CBS, each week on The Briefcase, two families have 72 hours to learn details about each other’s challenging circumstances and make the weighty decision of what to do with $101,000.  However, what they don’t know is that the family with whom they are considering sharing this financial windfall received an identical briefcase with the same instructions. Throughout their journeys, relationships within both families will be tested and beliefs questioned as… »

New Scream Queens Teaser Reflects the Inner Darkness of Emma Roberts’ Chanel

4 hours ago

While mirrors usually show someone his or her outer beauty, they may be doing the opposite in this latest promo for Fox’s Scream Queens. Even though the blood-stained mirror in the video is still able to display the good looks of Emma Roberts’ Chanel, the fact that it also becomes covered in blood could represent the inner ugliness of the character, who series co-creator Ryan Murphy describes as “very fashionable and very ruthless.” Yeah, I’m definitely getting that vibe. What’s also intriguing about this newest Scream Queens teaser, though, is that there appears to be someone (or something) standing behind Chanel in the scene. If you watch closely, you can definitely see some sort of other image in the mirror, and with the eeriness of the music as well, it’s clear that something is most certainly wrong here. Could this mean that the show’s killer »

New Arrow Photos: Team Arrow Helps Nyssa Fight Against the League

5 hours ago

Arrow will certainly be a different show than we’ve ever seen before this Wednesday, as Oliver is no longer in Starling City and no longer the person his friends and family knew him as. In the appropriately titled “Al Sah-Him,” not only does Oliver begin his true transformation into a member of the League of Assassins, but just as he finally join Ra’s al Ghul and his followers, they start to go after Nyssa, the only person who could challenge Oliver for his position as the new Ra’s. So how will Nyssa take on all of the members of the League by herself? She won’t have to, thankfully, because as these all-new photos from Wednesday’s episode show us, Laurel, Felicity, and Diggle will be there to help her fight. In the photos below, we see how Diggle and Laurel suit up to battle the League alongside Nyssa (with Laurel appearing… »

The Red Road Exclusive Sneak Peek: Junior Says An Emotional Goodbye to Rachel

5 hours ago

Saying goodbye to someone you love is never easy, and that’s definitely the case for Junior when he calls Rachel in this Thursday’s episode of The Red Road. In this exclusive sneak peek from the episode, Junior reaches out to Rachel because he wants to talk to her one last time before he goes after Levi. When she asks him to come over, Junior tells her that he can’t because he’s in Connecticut, and he soon begins to worry Rachel, as he tells her that he knows what he has to do, that he’s not confused, no matter what anyone says. It’s an incredibly emotional scene, as Junior looks for love and understanding from the person who matters most to him, and both Kiowa Gordon and Allie Gonino are terrific in it. Check out the clip, along with SundanceTV’s full description for this week’s episode, »

The Power of Loss Made Last Night’s Mad Men Such A Classic Episode

27 April 2015 12:54 PM, PDT

Mad Men very rarely produces a bad episode of television; however, the first three hours of the show’s final season (or, technically speaking, half season) had been somewhat of a letdown. They were not “bad” episode of Mad Men exactly, but they lacked a sense of energy and urgency, something that many had expected from the series as it comes closer and closer to wrapping up its seven-season run. Thankfully, that missing energy was found in last night’s episode of Mad Men, “Time & Life,” which was not only the best episode so far in this final stretch for the AMC series, but an all-time classic hour of the show, up their with some of the best that Mad Men has ever done, such as “The Wheel,” “Shut The Door. Have A Seat,” “The Suitcase,” and “The Strategy.” So what exactly made “Time & Life” such a terrific hour of… »

New The Flash ‘Endgame’ Trailer Previews the Season’s Final Four Episodes

27 April 2015 11:50 AM, PDT

The Flash is heading into the home stretch of its fantastic freshman season, and even though the series has already provided fans with some pretty spectacular episodes before, it looks like The CW superhero show is saving the best for last in its final four hours. In this all-new trailer for The Flash, not only we do get to see Wells starting to prepare for his “endgame” but also he and Barry facing off against each other yet again, and this time, it looks like much more even fight. However, will this battle between the two of them take place in the past, on the night Barry’s mother was killed, as we saw happen earlier this season, or will Barry somehow be able to rescue his mom, saving her life but possibly causing major changes with his actions? We’ll have to wait and see. What we don’t have to wait… »

It’s Official: Homeland Season 5 to Take Place in Germany

27 April 2015 10:35 AM, PDT

Get ready for another big move, Homeland fans. Showtime’s Emmy-winning spy series will be taking place in yet another different country when it begins its fifth season this fall. It was officially announced today by the network that Homeland will shoot on location in Germany for Season 5, and that the series will begin production in early June at the famed Studio Babelsberg in Berlin. By doing this, Homeland will become the first American television series to shoot a full season entirely in Germany. Showtime’s announcement confirms what Homeland executive producer Alex Gansa said back in March at PaleyFest. “We’re shooting in Germany,” Gansa said to the crowd, before also telling them that “Carrie will no longer be an intelligence officer.” And that part is also true: Carrie won’t be with the CIA when the show picks back up in Season 5 and will instead be doing her own work, »

Chicago Fire Adds Friday Night Lights Alum Dora Madison Burge

27 April 2015 9:31 AM, PDT

Chicago is going to look a little bit more like Dillon, Texas in the final three episodes of Chicago Fire‘s third season. Friday Night Lights alum Dora Madison Burge is joining the NBC series in a recurring role. Burge will play Jessica “Chili” Chilton, the new paramedic that is replacing Mills (Charlie Barnett). As Chicago Fire fans know, Mills left town and headed to North Carolina with his family in last week’s episode, and his absence won’t just be glossed over. Chili will have a difficult time trying to find her place in Firehouse 51, as those who miss Mills, specifically Brett (who will also be Chili’s partner), aren’t too welcoming to the team’s newest member. “They like each other but there’s a big difference in that Brett is still a small town girl who is in the big city for the first time »

27 April 2015 6:56 AM, PDT

“Riley’s met some outrageous things…you won’t believe what she meets next!” are the openings words of this all-new Girl Meets World Season 2 promo. However, what will make fans of the Disney Channel series (and particularly fans of the original Boy Meets World) very excited isn’t what Riley will be meeting in Season 2 but whom she’ll be meeting. As you can see in the video below, when Girl Meets World returns for its second season, it will be featuring some pretty fantastic guest stars, not only Rider Strong returning as Shawn, but also William Daniels and Will Friedle reprising their roles as Mr. Feeny and Eric. All of these big returns will be a part of Girls Meets World‘s premiere week, when the show will air five all-new episodes, one half hour every weeknight. Daniels’ Feeny, who was last seen at the end of the »
