Spoiler Room is back! Get scoop on 'Supernatural,' 'Teen Wolf', more

7 hours ago

I still remember the first time a spoiler truly failed me. It was the season 3 finale of The O.C., and I had read that someone was going to die. Everything I found online pointed to Sandy Cohen having a heart attack. The rumors crushed me to read—but after weeks of preparation, I was ready to try and come to terms with it. But as I sat on my couch, two minutes before the finale was scheduled to end, I realized that Sandy was nowhere to be seen. Instead, the show was focused on a car containing Ryan and Marissa. »

'Doctor Who' star Peter Capaldi talks about his Doctor's 'rock and roll' wardrobe

8 hours ago

An extremely long scarf. An umbrella with a handle in the shape of a question mark. A fez. The lead character of British science fiction show Doctor Who has sported some very, let’s say, eye-catching accessories during the half-century history of the show, which returns for its latest season on BBC America August 23. But new Doctor Who star Peter Capaldi was determined that his Time Lord would keep things lean and mean, sartorially-speaking.

“I was keen to avoid items that can be fetishized and turned into merchandise,” says the actor ,who worked with costume designer Howard Burden to come »

Entertainment Weekly: We had another unanimous vote this week as Amber was evicted. There have been a lot of unanimous or near unanimous votes this season. What is it about the house dynamic this year that has led to so much consensus?

'America's Next Top Model' goes dark in spooky group swimsuit shot

12 hours ago

A lost work of Salvador Dalí? A post-apocalyptic swimwear campaign, paid for by Capitol Couture? A promotional image for an ill-fated reality show called Sexy Mass Grave Island?

Nope—the photo above is an exclusive group shot from The CW’s America’s Next Top Model, which begins its 21st (!) cycle later this month. The photo itself was inspired by a fashion shoot that Antm creator/executive producer/host/dictator for life Tyra Banks found on model Tiara Young’s Instagram: “I am obsessed with Instagram and came across this picture of this model/models intertwined with each other,” she tells EW via email. »

Chris Pratt talks end of 'Parks and Recreation': 'I think people are ready for it to be done'

14 hours ago

Chris Pratt will officially become a big time movie star with today’s release of Guardians of The Galaxy (my personal pick for best film of the summer). And considering that Gotg is coming on the heels of The Lego Movie and will be followed by next year’s sure-to-be-massive Jurassic World…well, let’s just say Pratt (who stars in all three) has a lot of things to talk about. And we talked about all of those things when he stopped by the Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) studio this morning. But we also wanted to chat with Pratt (hey, »

14 hours ago

We know Peter Capaldi’s Time Lord will encounter both Daleks and Cybermen in the forthcoming season of science fiction show Doctor Who, which premieres on BBC America Aug. 23. But what other old monsters from would Capaldi like to see return during his tenure in the Tardis?

The Scottish actor and diehard Whovian has two beasties on his bucket list: The Axons, which Jon Pertwee’s Third Doctor encountered in the 1971 adventure “The Claws of Axos,” and the original ’60s-era Cybermen. “Axons appeared as these kind of god-like creatures, but underneath they were festering bags of flesh,” says Capaldi. “I »

ABC's 'The Quest:' I'd rather be LARPing

31 July 2014 6:05 PM, PDT

It’s a pretty good time for fantasy on television. Not since the heady days of Hercules: The Legendary Journeys and Xena: Warrior Princess have we had so many swords, fortresses, and leather jerkins on our TVs at once—during prime time nonetheless. Enter ABC’s The Quest, a reality show that promises something new: a carefully crafted fantasy world that 12 contestants enter to compete for the honor of being the One True Hero, who will wield the Sunspear and banish evil from the world of Everealm.

At first, I was worried the show was going to be condescending—look »

Ben Scott will forever be remembered in Bachelorette history as the guy who brought his kid to the first rose ceremony.

What the hell is Netflix's 'BoJack Horseman'?

31 July 2014 12:34 PM, PDT

Glad you asked.

1. It is, according to Netflix, “darkly hilarious, irreverent, serialized, animated comedy for adults.” The words “comedy for adults” are underlined.

2. It stars Will Arnett as the title character, “the failed legendary 90’s sitcom star from the favorite family sitcom Horsin’ Around, who has been trying to find his way through a muddle of self-loathing, whisky and failed relationships.” He is also a man with the head (and body?) of a horse.

3. It also features Aaron Paul as BoJack’s human sidekick Todd, Amy Sedaris as his agent/ex-girlfriend (she is a cat-person), and Alison Brie as another human person. »
