Spoiler alert: Michael Scofield is alive!

Fox’s Prison Break revival kicked off Tuesday night with the rather obvious reveal that Michael (Wentworth Miller) did not die from his brain tumor — nor from a fatal electrocution, as The Final Break insinuated. His brother Lincoln (Dominic Purcell) uncovers in the premiere that Michael actually has been in a Yemeni prison under the name Kaniel Outis, who is apparently a renowned terrorist.

HBO's Game of Thrones Season 7 Premiere Date Reveal Misfired & Twitter Had a Field Day

HBO's Game of Thrones Season 7 Premiere Date Reveal Misfired & Twitter Had a Field Day
Best laid plans, right, HBO? On Thursday, the cable network sent out a press release that the premiere date for the highly-anticipated seventh season of Game of Thrones would be revealed during a special live broadcast on the show's Facebook page. Once it began, fans learned that the information they'd come for was hidden inside the massive block of ice you see in the photo above. To melt it, they needed to type "Fire" into the comments. To say that things didn't go smoothly would be an understatement. After two pauses in the live feed (to brainstorm how the hell they'd get this ice to melt faster?), it wasn't until a full hour had passed—longer than the run time of a typical...

Paolo Sorrentino Scraps Silvio Berlusconi Film ‘Loro’

Sometimes, you don’t get what you want in the movie world. Best laid plans don’t always work out, and the alchemy of moviemaking occasionally goes up in smoke. And so it goes for Paolo Sorrentino.

Just a couple of months after announcing he was developing a movie titled “Loro” about controversial former Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi, the director has revealed it’s been scrapped.

Guilt Review: How Best Laid Plans Go Horribly Wrong

Though Guilt‘s main premise is a murder, things really didn’t take a dangerous turn until now. Though everyone in poor deceased Molly Ryan’s orbit is threatened by their own demons, the physical peril has never been more prevalent than it was this week. It’s looking more and more like Grace actually did kill Molly, or at least that she had a part in the murder. Though Grace may be the title lead in our story, is it wrong that after so many ridiculous moves sympathy for her is running out quickly? Ultimately there is an arrest made, but do the

Letters: long news articles, spoiler-free reviews, mobile




After a short break, the letters page is back! And, er, you've been asking us difficult questions...

Gah. Best laid plans, right? Last month, time beat us, and our letters page had to take a break while we attempted to frantically steer the tolerable ship Den Of Geek towards its daily DoGMRoD (see last letters page). But we're back! And you've ben asking us more tricky questions. That we have tried to answer.

Right here, in fact.

Really Long News Articles

I [nice things redacted] Den Of Geek, and have done for a long time. It’s [nice things redacted] site out there and I [nice things redacted] every day.

I do have a question though. What’s with these long news articles with lots of updates on them? Can’t we just have one individual news article for each story? It was much easier to comment on.

Carry on being [nice things redacted]. You’re far better than [best redact this bit too].

Mistresses Recap: Murder Was the (Stair)case That They Gave Him

We begin tonight’s Mistresses recap with a trip back to 1987 — when Murder, She Wrote and Moonlighting ranked among the Top 10 network shows, Fatal Attraction burned up the box office and the lilting voice of Suzanne Vega dominated radio for a minute. How did that song go, again?

The Flash, Ep. 1.20, “The Trap”: Flash’s Best Laid Plans Go Awry

The Flash Season 1, Episode 20: “The Trap”

Written by Alison Schapker & Brooke Eikmeier

Directed by Steve Shill

Tuesdays at 8pm Et on the CW

In “The Trap”, Barry and his team have found the secret room of Harrison Wells, and with it the secrets he has been hiding all along. They put together a plan to get Wells to confess to murdering Barry’s mother and help clear his father’s name once and for all. As they set a trap to lure Wells into telling everything, who is really trapping who?

It is getting tiring to have to begin every review with “the group tries to figure out the mystery of Harrison Wells.” The continuous overall plot of the last few episodes has been convincing everyone that Wells is up to no good. That is no longer the case. Everyone is on-board the “Harrison Wells is the Reverse-Flash!?!” train,

'Once Upon a Time' Poll: The Pros and Cons of an Evil Emma
ABC's Once Upon a Time has always been about the courageous daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming, Emma Swan, saving the day.Yet in "Poor Unfortunate Soul" Ursula told Hook -- and by extension the audience -- that Rumple plans to turn Emma evil. In "Best Laid Plans" Once Upon a Time went one step further to making that plan become a reality. It definitely looks like this season could involve The Savior becoming the next Queen of Darkness, but is this a good idea? Let's look a that pros and cons of turning Emma evil.

Alessandro Nivola On ‘Selma’, ‘Violent Year’ And Bradley Cooper: Conversations With Jeremy Gerard

  • Deadline
Alessandro Nivola On ‘Selma’, ‘Violent Year’ And Bradley Cooper: Conversations With Jeremy Gerard
Exclusive: It’s tempting to say that Alessandro Nivola lives a charmed life, and that might be true if he weren’t working so hard. He’s Zelig in plain sight: At this moment in time you can see him in Selma as Justice Department civil rights lawyer John Doar, who would become the lead prosecutor in the government’s case against the murders of James Chaney, Andrew Goodman and Michael Schwerner. And you can see him on the other side of the mirror, as a mobbed-up oil distributor and bete noir of Oscar Isaacs in A Most Violent Year. He played another nemesis, FBI agent Anthony Amado, on the trail of Bradley Cooper in American Hustle. And he’s still batting it around with Cooper, but now on Broadway, where he plays Frederick Treves, the humanistic doctor who rescues Cooper’s John Merrick ­­– Aka the Elephant Man – from life in a freak show booth.

Spotlight on the Stars: Reese Witherspoon

For this week’s brand new spotlight piece, I wanted to cite an A-lister who is having one really good 2014, to say the least. It’s Reese Witherspoon, an Academy Award winning actress who only this year is finally solidifying her status not just as a star, but as a supremely talented actress as well. It’s high time too, as she’s given more top quality performances than a lot of people realize. From some of her early work to the performance that won her the Oscar, Witherspoon has become a deserving member of the A-list, though someone who doesn’t always get the credit that she truly deserves. As such, it’s only appropriate today to put the spotlight on her. Here we go… Witherspoon got her start with a few head turning roles in smaller films, starting with The Man in the Moon, followed by A Far Off Place and Freeway,

Recap: 'Big Brother' Sunday - Nominations and Skittle-Power
When it comes to surveillance video, it's hard to get more disorienting than transitioning from a LiveStream in Ferguson, Missouri to CBS' voyeuristic "Big Brother" and it saddens me that that's what I find myself doing tonight. Between this unfortunate media juxtaposition and some exhausting travel, I can't say that I'm all that involved with what's going down on Sunday's (August 17) "Big Brother," but the job is the job... So let's watch what happens! 8:03 p.m. Oh right. Derrick and Frankie won Head of Household when we left things on Thursday. Interesting... "Big Brother" Voice-Over Man says that tonight will be the last Battle of the Block of the summer. 8:04 p.m. There are only eight people left in the House and Frankie notes that six of them are in his alliance, which means alliance-mates are going up on the Block. Caleb tells us that Victoria and Donny are the obvious targets,

Interview: J'Tia Taylor talks 'Survivor: Cagayan'

  • Hitfix
Taking an early and bossy lead on a failed Day One project is usually a decent recipe for being voted off early on "Survivor." Being viewed as the weakest player on a weak tribe is usually a decent recipe for being voted off early on "Survivor." Seemingly being on the low side of a numbers alliance is also usually a decent recipe for being voted off early on "Survivor." Going just a bit cuckoo-bananas and dumping most of your tribe's rice into the fire? Surely that's a fantastic recipe for getting voted off early on "Survivor." In retrospect, it probably isn't surprising that my exit interview with J'Tia Taylor came early in this "Survivor: Cagayan" season. The shocking thing is that J'Tia managed not to be the first or second person voted out of her Brains Tribe. In fact, the Chicago-based nuclear engineer survived one surprising vote, one genuinely shocking vote and,

Underappreciated games: Alpha Protocol

Feature Aaron Birch 8 Aug 2013 - 06:03

Obsidian's espionage title has come under plenty of fire, but is it still worth a look?

Taking the premise of a very successful title and retooling it for your own needs is very common in the world of gaming. Clones of successful games are released time and time again, and these copies of other people's winning formulae can lead to equally great games. Then again, they can also produce third-rate knock-offs, which is the pigeon hole in which many people place Obsidian's Alpha Protocol.

Taking BioWare's excellent Mass Effect as a starting point, Obsidian wanted to create a real world espionage RPG that put the player in the shoes of a super secret agent. The game would take in sights from around the world, mix in stealth and gunplay and feature a heavily story-driven campaign with previously unheard of levels of user interaction. This

Burn Notice Review: Family Ties

  • TVfanatic
As the episodes have been doing recently, we picked pretty close to where we left off. Which means we had the return of Calvin Schmidt, who was even more whiny this week (if it’s possible) than he was last week.

Speaking of whining (my own this time), I officially hate Olivia Riley, and the reason I hate her is that she is as good as Michael is but doesn't seem to have his moral compass. Don’t get me wrong, I know she isn't doing anything illegal, but it seems no matter what Madeline did, she kept destroying her "Best Laid Plans."

Which led to Michael inviting her to go with them on the run to Budapest, or Mumbai, or some other place that’s not Miami (yes, I know it was Buenos Aries), which made for an interesting counter point to events with Elsa and Sam.
