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,

  • JoBlo
Are there any Hardy Boys or Harriet the Spy fans in the house? Back in the '80s and '90s, kids and young adult detective novels were all the rage. It used to be that you couldn't set foot inside you local library without tripping over a prepubescent boy or girl whose face wasn't buried in the pages of Nate the Great, The Babysitters Club, Basil of Baker Street or Encyclopedia...

Paramount TV, Anonymous Content Nab Rights to 9-Year-Old Reporter Hilde Lysiak’s Books (Exclusive)

Nine-year-old reporter Hilde Lysiak — who made national headlines this April when she reported on a possible murder — is building out her growing resume, and is headed to TV.

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

Celebrate Clarissa Explains It All's 25th Anniversary with 15 Things You Might Want Explained About the Show
Clarissa Explains It All premiered in March 1991, meaning that this month it celebrates its 25th anniversary. Yep, if Clarissa Darling were around today (and had been aging in real-world time since the show first debuted), she'd be 38 years old, maybe even with a 13-year-old Clarissa of her own. It's not just that the Melissa Joan Hart sitcom was a popular show for pre-teen girls or even pre-teens in general; it's that it helped established a network identity for the channel it was on, a still-young Nickelodeon, and helped shape a lot of similarly focused shows that aired throughout the rest of the '90s.

Michelle Trachtenberg Posts Gossip Girl #Tbt Picture With Co-Stars Chace Crawford and Penn Badgley
Nostalgia alert, Upper East Siders! Gossip Girl was easily one of the greatest guilty pleasure shows of a generation, and while it may have taken a ridiculous turn (Dan as Gossip Girl? Really?) we can't overlook its insanely attractive cast and jaw-dropping fashion statements. The show might have gone off the air in 2012, but Serena van der Woodsen, Dan Humphrey, Nate Archibald, Chuck Bass and Blair Waldorf still live on in our hearts, which is why Michelle Trachtenberg's #Tbt photo is everything. The Harriet the Spy star posted a picture with Chace Crawford and Penn Badgley, Aka Nate and Dan, respectively. Trachtenberg famously played frenemy Georgina Sparks, and her picture is making us wonder all over...

Here are the New Titles on Netflix This June
Summer is the best time for nostalgia screenings with friends. This June, Netflix will be adding a number of iconic films to their streaming catalogue that are perfect for watching on a warm evening -- so start planning now! "Apocalypse Now," "Annie Hall," "Carrie," "Wayne's World," "Ever After: A Cinderella Story" and "Harriet the Spy," are just a few of the additions Netflix is making beginning on June 1st. Sure, the latter three titles may not share the illustrious reputation of the former three. But when it comes to nostalgia, let's face it, standards are overrated. TelevisionComedy Bang Bang!

Here's What's New on Netflix in June

  • Moviefone
Usually June is associated with the first real month of summer -- a time to go out and frolic through the wilderness like a snowman that doesn't know any better. But it also gets really, really hot, which has people retreating to their local multiplex or, even better, their luxuriously air-conditioned living rooms. With that in mind, take a look at the television shows and movies that will be available on Netflix's steaming service come June (via Vulture).

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

Michelle Trachtenberg Stuns at "Killing Kennedy" Premiere

Michelle Trachtenberg has come a long way since "Harriet the Spy."The 28-year-old actress looked gorgeous as she hit the red carpet for National Geographic's "Killing Kennedy" premiere in a gorgeous green Zac Posen gown.And while she usually wears her hair pulled back or parted down the middle, Michelle opted for a classic Hollywood glamour look for the event. We love it!The former child star plays Lee Harvey Oswald's wife Marina in the TV movie, which premieres Sunday night.The look is a far cry from the last outfit we saw her in: Her Halloween costume!Over the weekend, she was seen partying with fellow former child star Hilary Duff, who was dressed as a mouse.

New trailer for The Colony

A new trailer for horror movie The Colony has emerged, revealing more of the film’s monsters.

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,

"The Good Wife" Recap: Face Your Fierce

  • The Backlot
On some level it's a disappointment that The Good Wife stuffed a barrel of guest-stars into a single episode and gave everyone from Nathan Lane to Kristin Chenoweth mere moments to dazzle us with meaningful grimaces, but we shouldn't think of Sunday's episode, "The Art of War," with disdain: Ultimately, we witnessed a very compelling military-themed episode with enough strong moments of characterization to make up for an exhausting amount of B- and C-plots. And naturally our beloved regulars shined too. Or gleamed like a serial killer's meat cleaver, in the case of the rage in Eli's eyes.

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

We spy something insanely sexy.

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.

"Smash" Recap 108: “Welcome To My Level.”

It's a week after the showcase. Ivy and Sam conduct a post-mortem in dance class with Sam asking the dreaded question: “You don't think it's dead, do you?”

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

Gossip Girl Ex[tras]pose: The 5 Best Extras from the Big Wedding Episode

  • TV.com
A million things happened during Gossip Girl's Royal Wedding episode this week, mostly in the last 45 seconds before the credits (Dan drove an old-timey car! Prince Louis finally settled into the villainy implied by his vague accent! Harriet the Spy is Gossip Girl!). But you know who nearly stole the show? The extras. In background of the scenes, at the forefront of my thoughts, Gossip Girl.s extras will forever distract me from the drama at hand. Never has a group of people hired for their ability to come across as normal humans failed so utterly at coming across as normal humans. Here are the ones who took my eyes off the bride:
