Alex and Kara made tracks for their hometown of Midvale, where they balanced their time between bickering and reflecting on their childhood… which was also full of bickering. (Side note: This episode only flashed back 10 years, yet Alex was still in school. Exactly how young are we to believe she is?)
Anyway, young Kara and Alex — while perfectly cast — had a pretty rough go of things in their early days. “Before you came along,
Paramount Television and Anonymous Content have optioned the rights to the pint-sized journalist’s forthcoming book series “Hilde Cracks the Case” with the intent to develop a TV show based on the four mystery novels that will be released by Scholastic.
Inspired by true news stories that Lysiak has broken throughout her aspiring career as a journalist, the mystery novels star Hilde and her older sister Izzy, her sidekick newspaper photographer, as the two girls stop at nothing to uncover the truth.
The Paramount/Anonymous pact also includes the rights to Lysiak’s own life story. While the TV character will be based on Lysiak, she will not star in the project.
Described as a real-life “Harriet the Spy,” Lysiak made her own news in April when she was
In his elevated role, D’Ambrosia will continue to oversee production and creative development of Disney Junior’s portfolio, including “Doc McStuffins,” “Sofia the First,” “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse,” “Goldie & Bear,” “Sheriff Callie’s Wild West” and the short-form series “Minnie’s Bow-Toons.” He is also responsible for a few hotly anticipated upcoming titles at the kids’ cabler — “Elena of Avalor,” which will feature Disney’s first Latina princess; “Mickey and the Roadster Racers,” a madcap car-racing adventure featuring Mickey Mouse and his pals; plus “Vampirina,” which is inspired by the Disney Publishing children’s book series “Vampirina Ballerina.”

Thought the snail-who-dreamed-of-being-a-racecar saga ended with last summer's DreamWorks Animated joint "Turbo?" Think again. Apparently there's a television spin-off. And you can watch it on Netflix. We also have to give it up for a pair of wonderful sequels that are going to be on in June: the obviously-shot-in-Canada-even-though-it's-set-in-New York robo-epic "Short Circuit 2" (a favorite since childhood) and the far darker and more sinister "Wolf Creek 2," a sequel to the
Set in a ruined future caused by burning all our fossil fuels and tampering with nature (subtle message there maybe?), all humans are living in colonies under the snow. Colony 7 is lead by Briggs (Laurence Fishburne; Man of Steel) and after receiving a distress signal from Colony 5, decides to investigate. This uncovers a monstrous threat to their very existence.
It’s not clear yet, but extreme hunger plus, perhaps, some virus created by the changed earth, has caused the inhabitants of Colony 5 to become cannibals. In the trailer, the cannibals look and act seem to be a cross between the vampires from 30 Days of Night and the zombies from 28 Days Later. The trailer reminds me of both of those movies, as well as the 1982 classic, The Thing.
The film also stars Bill Paxton (Twister,
Here are my favorite thangs from last episode.
1. Amanda Peet, you bring valor and Valium to that uniform.
The still-underrated Amanda Peet, who starred in one of my favorite movies of the past few years, Nicole Holofcener's Please Give, brought a steely reserve to the courtroom as Captain Hellinger, a Jag
Before Paget Brewster bid CBS’ Criminal Minds adieu (she last appears in this Wednesday’s two-hour finale), she and castmates A.J. Cook and Kirsten Vangsness got their glam on for a CBS Watch! Magazine — and TVLine has an extremely fun behind-the-scenes video from that shoot.

As the actresses immerse themselves in the espionage-themed photo shoot and accompanying wardrobe, they each share their inspirations — “Harriet the Spy” and James Bond for Vangsness, “Veronica Lake meets Angelina Jolie in Mr. & Mrs. Smith” for Cook. Brewster says she
Cut to Julia, depressed in bed with a bowl of grapes. “We're dead.” She's upset not only because Eileen isn't returning her calls but also because of Leo's rapidly approaching court date. Frank is determined to cheer her up and launches into a Guitar Hero-assisted rendition of Bob Marley's “Three Little Birds." Number one, white people singing reggae is a dicey proposition at best. Second, are you really singing a Bob Marley song to distract your wife from your son's marijuana charge?
Eileen is ensconced in her new apartment, on the phone with Derek about Karen and someone named Ryan. In walks Ellis, bearing a CD delivery. He offers his services, since with the workshop over Tom needs less help. She
