Why Katie Cassidy Was Arrow Season 3’s Mvp

3 hours ago

Season 3 of The CW’s Arrow, the story of DC Comics’ Emerald Archer Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell), was not the strongest year for the series, but it still had a number of solid elements that fans did enjoy. Despite Oliver being the main character of the show, his story was not the most interesting one to follow by the time this season of Arrow was over. Instead, the third season’s true Mvp was Dinah Laurel Lance (Katie Cassidy), who evolved and finally embraced her comic book destiny by becoming the Black Canary with the death of her sister, Sara Lance (Caity Lotz), who will be returning to the DC/CW world as White Canary on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow in 2016). Here is why Cassidy’s character was one of the very best parts of Arrow Season 3. Be aware that this article will contain spoilers for the entirety of Arrow‘s third season. »

The Good Wife’s Archie Panjabi Doesn’t Deny “Faked” Kalinda/Alicia Scene, Says Kalinda Won’t Return

27 May 2015 7:15 AM, PDT

It’s the faked scene that no one can stop talking about: The Good Wife‘s Alicia and Kalinda sitting down at the bar together for the first time in a very long time in the show’s Season 6 finale. The two characters, who were best friends on the series, appeared to maintain their relationship throughout the seasons, even though their portrayers, Julianna Margulies and Archie Panjabi, had, for some unknown reason, refused to share scenes together. With Pabjabi exiting the series at the end of Season 6, fans were hoping for one last real, onscreen exchange between the friends before Kalinda left. However, as first reported by TVLine’s Michael Ausiello, the much hyped scene between Margulies and Panjabi never actually took place and instead was manufactured by using CGI and body doubles, and now, for the first time since the scene has aired, Panjabi is speaking out about it and is not… »

Where Are They Now? The Cast of Wonderfalls

27 May 2015 6:22 AM, PDT

You can’t make a list these days of “Shows Cancelled Too Soon” without including Bryan Fuller, and it’s a true testament to his creativity that (at least) two of his shows would have to be included. Everyone always thinks about Pushing Daisies (same, though), but Fuller’s first network series Wonderfalls is as equally deserving of the praise of its spiritual sister. After debuting on Fox, Wonderfalls was praised by critics, but it never found an audience. It was also doomed from the beginning, as Fox decided to air the episodes out of order, as well. After four low-rated episodes, Fox cancelled the hourlong comedy, but a loyal fanbase has kept the series alive in their hearts, giving its 13-episode run a cult status through the DVD release. While it took a while for anyone to watch the series, it’s impossible to deny the effect that Wonderfalls »

As American Idol prepares to begin its final season next January, Ryan Seacrest has already got another hosting gig on Fox lined up. Beginning in July, Seacrest will serve as the host for the network’s new reality series Knock Knock Live, which, unlike Idol, isn’t a competition series but a game show of sorts, where people from all over the United States have a chance to win. Knock Knock Live comes from Simon Fuller, creator of American Idol and So You Think You Can Dance. Each week, Seacrest will present the show from its “mission control” studio in Los Angeles. From there, he guides a team of co-hosts who show up completely unannounced at various locations across the country.

Orphan Black’s Dylan Bruce Joins Heroes Reborn

26 May 2015 10:20 AM, PDT

With all the ongoing (and upcoming) DC and Marvel television projects on both major networks and digital platforms, NBC is currently working on its own returning superhero property: Heroes Reborn. While a lot of story details are currently being kept under wraps, Heroes Reborn is continuing to expand its cast, with Deadline announcing the casting of Orphan Black’s Dylan Bruce. As most of the series’ cast members, Bruce’s role is unknown for now, and the only detail we have is that he will be appearing as a guest star. Bruce is most well-known for his role as Paul on Orphan Black. However, he’s also appeared in many other series, including ArrowNCISAs the World Turns, and Las Vegas.

Wayward Pines Has the Most Consistently Confusing Universe on TV

26 May 2015 10:00 AM, PDT

When Amazon Prime recommended I take a look at the first two episodes of the M. Night Shyamalan-produced Wayward Pines on Fox, I decided to oblige. I’m always curious to see what Shyamalan is up to, even if it’s out of morbid curiosity at this point, but here his touch is light as he’s just in a producer role. And after the pilot, the show was interesting enough to get my attention. But after week two? I’m starting to worry about the fact that Wayward Pines is airing on a traditional network like Fox. (Spoilers from the first two weeks of Wayward Pines to follow.) The pilot of Wayward Pines introduces us to a very odd town that some have compared to Twin Peaks, but in reality it feels more like the Lost island, where time and space are bent in strange ways like we »

New Girl’s Max Greenfield Joins American Horror Story: Hotel

26 May 2015 9:42 AM, PDT

Schmidt is taking some time away from the loft and checking into a Hotel. Max Greenfield is the latest big name actor to join American Horror Story: Hotel.  American Horror Story co-creator Ryan Murphy announced that Greenfield will be a part of the FX series’ upcoming fifth season on Twitter yesterday. “This October, Max Greenfield (like you’ve never seen him) is checking in to the hotel….but not checking out,” Murphy wrote Like with the rest of American Horror Story: Hotel‘s casting announcements, we don’t have any other details on what type of character Greenfield will be playing, aside from what Murphy has said. However, from that tweet, it would seem that, no matter who he ends up portraying, Greenfield’s character will meet a pretty fatal end. This will be Greenfield’s first time ever appearing on American Horror Story, and it’s unknown how many episodes he will be in. »

Where Are They Now? The Cast of Pushing Daisies

26 May 2015 7:38 AM, PDT

It’s crazy to think that it has been almost six years since the final pie was made at the Pie Hole on Pushing Daisies. From the incredible mind of Bryan Fuller, best known these days for his work on NBC’s HannibalPushing Daisies was a fantastical dramedy that aired on ABC for two (abbreviated) seasons from 2007-2009. Debatably one of the major victims of the 2007-2008 Writers Guild of America strike, Pushing Daisies was a “forensic fairy tale” that became loved for its writing, characters, and very unique visual style. It’s hard to believe that the internet would have allowed for the untimely cancellation of Pushing Daisies if it had happened in 2015’s landscape rather than 2009’s, but the 22 episodes of Pushing Daisies will be forever loved by fans that consistently hope for a revival of the show in some form. Creator Bryan Fuller has been met »

The show has been anticipated since its announcement, and expectations have increased exponentially during the past few weeks. The cast is a star-studded one, and it is definitely one of the main things that audiences are looking forward to from the show, which is described by NBC as an “event series.” Let’s take a look at the cast of NBC’s Aquarius: David Duchovny as Sam Hodiak Perhaps the most prolific actor on the cast, David Duchovny is best known for playing the role of Agent Fox Mulder on The X-Files, a long-running sci-fi series on Fox.

The Five Best Episodes of Hannibal (So Far)

26 May 2015 6:20 AM, PDT

Since April 4, 2013, Bryan Fuller’s Hannibal has been an absolute dream for millions of people around the world. What started off as an ill-advised adaptation of one of the most famous characters in literature and film has blossomed into what is perhaps the most well-crafted television series in history. An elegant horror masterpiece, Hannibal keeps fans on pins and needles in anticipation of the next episode every single week. Ahead of the Season 3 premiere on Thursday, June 4, here’s a look at what I think are the best episodes of Hannibal (so far). Spoilers for Seasons 1 and 2 of Hannibal Follow: 5. “Entrée” (Season 1, Episode 6) “Here we are, a bunch of psychopaths helping each other out.” – Freddie Lounds For the first few episodes of Hannibal, the show played as a killer-of-the-week detective drama.
