Fear the Walking Dead, AMC's companion show to its monster hit The Walking Dead, premieres on August 23. But save for an extra word in the title, what makes this show different from the original? Turns out, a lot! “One of the things that was really important to us from day one was that this show stand alone — story-wise, character-wise. We wanted it to have its own corner of the universe," said Robert Kirkman, the creator of the comics and an executive producer on both shows. But there will still be zombies, right? Every person needs a survival guide, so here's yours to help you navigate the ever-expanding walker universe.So, what's this show about? Well, let's start with the trailer: This looks like a family drama. Correct! It's basically Step by Step for the zombie apocalypse.

Chicago – Films with major movie stars that take real chances on story formula are rare. “Aloha” is one such example, and produces considerations that are way off the beaten path. Is it an allegory? An absurdity? An homage to 1960s paranoia? Only writer/director Cameron Crowe knows for sure.
Despite all the questions after the film, the ride through the story is wild enough to maintain a commitment to it. There are several holes in the plot, soap opera-like revealings and apparent casting miscues, but in the end it doesn’t matter, as our heroes (Bradley Cooper and Emma Stone) use a covert rocket satellite launch as a basis for matchmaking. Step by step, the scenario creates an atmosphere that is centered around man’s inhumanity to its myth and nature, but also takes some time for a running gag about a pilot who communicates nonverbally. For Cameron Crowe, »

A good American Idol finale is kind of like the Fountain of Youth — and that’s not only a reference to 43-year-old Ricky Martin, 45-year-old J.Lo and 44-year-old Jordan Knight taking the stage and looking like they halted the aging process back in the late ’90s.

Long before Scott Foley was busy making Scandal fans swoon as Jake Ballard, he won hearts back in the '90s in yet another TV love triangle. After appearances on shows like Step by Step and Dawson's Creek, Scott became a household name with his role as Noel Crane on Felicity.

Over the past decade, Scott has remained a Hollywood heartthrob, a title that's been taken to the next level thanks to Scandal. Off screen, he tied the knot with his wife, actress Marika Dominczyk, in 2007, and they welcomed their third child, Konrad, in November.

Ukrainian filmmaker Oleg Sentsov’s detention in Russia’s Lefortovo prison has been extended once again - this time until May 11 after a decision by the regional court judge Elena Kaneva.
This latest extension will mean that Sentsov has been held in custody for a year since being arrested by the Russian Fsb secret service in the Crimean peninsula in May 2014.
Speaking at the hearing in the courtroom Sentsov said defiantly that he could not agree with the decision to extend his custody since there hadn’t been any evidence presented of his alleged participation in or organisation of terrorist activities in Crimea last year.
After making reference to the testimonies obtained from fellow defendants Gennady Afanasyev and Oleksiy Chyrny , which the Russian Fsb security authorities claim to incriminate him as a supporter of such activities, he added: ¨I am confident that the brave investigators will prove everything because the Federal Service of Chaos in your country »

It's been a strange couple of weeks of films with the boys. First, we had a period of almost three weeks where I didn't get to see them because of all sorts of different scheduling issues. The hardest part of adjusting to life as a divided family is making my peace with the very different way the kids and I spend time together now. I've gone from having hours with them every day to having a handful of hours every couple of weeks. It makes time feel much more precious, but it can add a layer of stress, as well, because I'm constantly aware of the ticking clock. I know the boys feel it, too. We talk when I don't see them, but it's not the same. You try having a serious conversation on the phone with a seven-year-old. It's just not satisfying, no matter what. Kids today don't really »

Television of the 21st century highly differs from a lot of the TV we got in the 20th century. In the 90’s, it was considered cool to have your television series on Friday nights. However, if your show gets put on the schedule for Friday night today, it could mean it is on the road to cancellation. That does not hold true for all series. ABC shows’ Last Man Standing and Shark Tank continue to draw in an audience while the NBC drama Grimm continues to thrive on Friday nights. ABC’s popular Tgif lineup premiered in 1989 and some of your favorite family sitcoms would air on this special night of programming. One of those series is Step by Step. The series would remain on the alphabet network from 1991-1997. It would then move over to CBS and air one additional season. Here is what the cast of Step by Step is up to today. »
