NCIS | To Inside Liners Nisha, Joyce and others, this is for you. With many “Tiva” fans fretting that the pair’s season-ending heart-to-heart essentially landed Tony in the dreaded Friend Zone, showrunner Gary Glasberg maintains that over the course of Season 10, “We made huge strides. »

What if the genders in Beauty and the Beast were reversed?
That's the spin author George R.R. Martin put on handsome Jaime "The Kingslayer" Lannister (Nicolaj Coster-Waldau) and lumbering female knight Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie) in the books that inspired HBO's hit fantasy series Game of Thrones (airing Sundays at 9/8c). And like the classic tale, the journey taken by this unlikely duo is "about the inner beauty of someone and how that can translate across physical odds," Christie tells TVGuide.com.

With just days to go until the season 3 premiere, Ron talks us through 10 things he wants more of from the superlative Game Of Thrones...
No TV show is perfect, but for me, Game of Thrones is as close to perfect as television gets. When asked to consider the things I’d want to see in season three and beyond then, my answer was simple: I want more. More battles, more magic, more George R.R. Martin, more animated GIFs of Joffrey’s face on the receiving end of a well-aimed slap… more of everything that makes Game of Thrones one of the best shows on TV.
1. “More wine" - Cersei Lannister
This one is fairly obvious. When ten or eleven episodes of something are incredible, the biggest demand is for more of the same. The books, which number in the thousands of pages at this point, »

Having discussed the Time of Puppies and Rainbows in the first part of our roundtable, Coming Attractions’s crackerjack crew of Game of Thrones experts now turns its attention to the nitty-gritty of television contracts, the difficulty of Daenerys Targaryen’s upcoming storyline (or lack thereof), and the huge news that A Song of Ice and Fire author George R.R. Martin will be developing further series for HBO in the not-too-distant future… which may or may not include Game of Thrones spinoffs.
Mo Ryan, TV critic for The Huffington Post:
As far as I’m aware, TV actors don’t normally have a set or minimum amount of screen time put into their contracts. Here’s something that is fairly standard in Us TV: an actor who is contracted as a series regular may have a “10 for 13” or “8 for 10” contract. That means that for the duration of the shooting of a particular season, »
Walt Disney Pictures have tasked Trance screenwriter, Joe Aherane, to pen a live-action version of the famous fairytale, Beauty And The Beast. The House Of Mouse are hoping for another fantasy hit franchise on the back of Oz The Great & Powerful’s monumental success after opening to the worldwide tune of $150 million in only three days.
Ahearne may seem a peculiar choice considering Trance, directed by Danny Boyle, features some pretty graphic violence and gore, but he’s also a filmmaker himself and has written and directed episodes of beloved BBC series Doctor Who, as well as sci-fi and spookfests, Ultraviolet and Apparitions.
While the epic children’s tale was adapted into a hit Disney musical in 1991, we’ve already had the classic 1980 series (starring Ron Perlman and Linda Hamilton) updated to present day by CW with Jay Ryan and Kristen Kreuk, as well as a modern remake in the form of 2010′s Beastly. »

The Canadian channel Showcase has ordered a fourth season of its supernatural series Lost Girl. The show has consistently been Showcase’s number one scripted series and is an international hit.
“Lost Girl remains an anchor series for Showcase, and with its sharp writing and palpable cast chemistry, it has amassed a fan following second-to-none,” said Barbara Williams, Senior Vice President, Content, Shaw Media. “We are delighted to bring fans another season of the series and can’t wait to see where the creative team takes the story next.”
Currently halfway through its third season on Showcase, Lost Girl is centered on sexy succubus Bo (Anna Silk). Bo is a strong-willed and independent member of a community of creatures of legend and folklore called Fae that exists in our modern world. Bo refuses to choose an allegiance to either the Dark or Light Fae clans, »

In 1984, The Terminator was a relatively low budget ($6.5 million) action-adventure film starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, hot off Conan and Linda Hamilton pre-Beauty and the Beast. Written by James Cameron and Gale Anne Hurd, it was a fun little science fiction film of a potential future that needed to be avoided. Things blew up and Arnold stoically told a cop and the audience, “I’ll be back.” No one knew at the time that the film would trigger such an enthusiastic response, giving us sequels, comics, novels, and a television series. Suddenly, SkyNet, John Conner, Sarah Conner and the Terminator T-800 model would become a part of the social fabric of pop culture. It also got Cameron sued by Harlan Ellison, who successfully argued that the story lifted a lot from the classic “Soldier” story penned for The Outer Limits. Little wonder then, that when Blu-ray discs started showing up, it »

Today the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films announced its nominees for the 2013 Saturn Awards, one of the few awards programs in which a lot of us will recognize nearly every production. The awards have been expanded over recent years, so if you are unclear about just what type of productions are honored by the Academy, an explanation is included in the press release below, although it can really be summarized as “we know it when we see it.”
A few head-scratchers, however, just beg to be called out:
Anna Karenina? Les Miserables? Leverage? Elementary? Really? That is some broad definition. No subgenre categories for television. The Academy proofreader should know by now that it’s “Syfy” and not “SyFy” (don’t worry, I fixed it, and sorry, it’s a pet peeve). Adding in historical fiction somewhere somehow without actually mentioning it. The entire category “Best Youth-Oriented »

Linda Hamilton, possibly the toughest woman to ever grace television and film screens, will soon play a part on one of television's sexiest dramas. The actress will guest-star on an episode of the third season of Syfy's fantasy series, "Lost Girl." Hamilton's episode is scheduled to air in March.
In the episode, titled "Delinquents," Hamilton will play the character of Acacia. She is a sexy, tough and ruthless assassin with a long trail of bodies left behind throughout her career. She will come into contact with the "Lost Girl" heroes at an urban camp for at-risk youth. Bo (Anna Silk), Kenzi (Ksenia Solo) and Dyson (Kris Holden-Ried) are undercover at the camp, trying to catch a Fae serial killer who seems to be preying on the kids.
There is no word yet as to whether Acacia is Fae or human, although a name like Acacia certainly would fit a Fae assassin. »
One of the most unwavering networks –beyond CBS- is The CW. The mini network and its stable of cult like genre shows have been able to sustain good ratings in the all-important 18-34 demographic, at times beating last place NBC. So far, for the 2012-13 TV season, they’ve only canceled one show, the medical drama Emily Owens, MD. Now, the network has announced early pick-ups of freshman superhero show Arrow, The Vampire Diaries (which is headed into season five, with a potential spin-off called The Originals may be added) and Supernatural –which heads into season nine, becoming the networks longest running show behind Smallville. Beauty and the Beast is also likely to be renewed as well. But other shows like 90210, Nakita, and The Carrie Diaries remain questionable network until the network heads can look over the upcoming pilots.

HBO has developed a very successful relationship with George R.R. Martin, the author of the best-selling epic fantasy series A Song of Ice and Fire, that the network is currently adapting as the commercial hit television show Game of Thrones.
Martin has been involved with the screenplay and the production of the TV series from the start. In addition, the show has increased Martin’s fan base. With their current compatibility, it seems like both parties will be extending their relationship as George R.R. Martin is set to develop and produce a new show for HBO. He has also signed a two-year contract with the channel to be an executive producer.
Considering the fact that Martin’s expertise is in the science fiction and fantasy genre, there’s a high possibility that the new series will contain elements from that category, though the series’ content hasn’t been revealed yet. »
