Kody Brown and his four wives — Meri, Janelle, Christine and Robyn — continued adding the finishing touches to their four new homes on the Dec. 30 season finale of Sister Wives, but the realities of the cost of building four new houses — one for each wife– started to set in.
House Wars: The Wives Gang Up On Kody
As Kody sat down with each wife and went through the design details for her home, the Brown family started to realize just how much each home will really cost. Tensions flared when wife #1, Meri, protested after Kody told her she was already over budget for her home.
Meri was so adamant about having a wet bar in her home that she seemed to have forgotten all about budgeting! »

Bonnie Wright's makeover looks, well, magical. The Harry Potter actress, 21, unveiled a major hair makeover at Jo Malone's Thoroughly Proper Party in London Dec. 12. Saying goodbye to her long, red hair, the British star sported shoulder-length chestnut locks and a megawatt grin. Following the 2011 release of the eighth and final Harry Potter movie, The Deathly Hallows - Part 2, Wright has lined up several film projects, including Geography of the Hapless Heart, The Philosophers, Before I Sleep and The Sea. Wright was engaged to costar Jamie [...] »

Why is Robert Pattinson so against the "franchise" label when it's applied to the Twilight films? What part of the whole Twilight experience would Pattinson like to relive, if given the opportunity? And is he sad to let Edward Cullen go after playing the sparkling vampire in five films? Pattinson answers those questions and more in his final Twilight press conference in support of Breaking Dawn Part 2, set to hit theaters on November 16, 2012.

In 1982, E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial became the biggest blockbuster of the year, and the world fell in love with a strange little creature, and the family who took him in. 30 years later, E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial is being brought to audiences like never before… on a 30th Anniversary Blu-Ray.
Nominated for nine Academy Awards® including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Cinematography, Best Writing and Best Screenplay, the film took home four statuettes for Best Visual Effects, Best Sound Effects Editing, Best Sound and Best Music for John Williams.

I’m not so sure if How I Met Your Mother is playing it smart by announcing the Autumn of Breakups so blatantly and so early in the season. “The Pre-Nup” is only the second episode and we’re already being told that every couple – with the exception of Marshall and Lily, will break up sometime this fall. That’s a pretty bold statement, but I simply cannot get over how quickly the show is strolling into that territory. Of course none of these couples are going to last. We’ve seen the future, we know Barney and Quinn don’t get married, and we know Robin and Nick won’t last. Hell, we’ve known since the first season Victoria isn’t the mother, so why put us through the motions? How can we, as an audience, ever come to enjoy these couples if we know they’re doomed to fail? »

Jimmy Kimmel opened the 64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards in a bathroom stall, crying over a Botox-gone-bad experience, setting the tone for what would be a somewhat memorable, if not long, evening. Instead of endless dialog and live performances (with the exception of Josh Groban's surprise appearance for a mock-memoriam/tribute to Kimmel), the Emmy powers-that-be steered the show towards a more traditional forum by actually handing out awards. Thirty in all. Too long? Perhaps. But it is TV's biggest night and since watching the tube is still America's favorite past-time, it seems appropriate that it would take three hours to disperse those fancy gold statues to our favorite actors and shows. Kimmel started off by addressing the Nokia Theater attendees in his monolog. "It took you 10 hours to get ready, you sweltered in the heat and haven't had a carb in days," he said. (It suddenly made my »

Though Nintendo's Wii U press conference is less than two weeks away, rumors and speculation regarding the new console's release date and price are flying out as fast as ever. Now, it looks like a distributor has revealed three different console bundles, along with pricing and release date info!
YouTube user H0undd0gg recently uploaded a video showing screenshots taken of Video Product Distributors website, where information on three different Wii U console bundles has been posted. For those of you not familiar, Vpd is a distribution company that works with clients including Amazon and Blockbuster.
The three supposed SKUs reveal three different pricing options possibly pointing to three different hardware bundles. Each is listed with a November 11th street date, which is in line with other reports we've seen crop up over the last few months.
Ranging in price from $249.99 to $349.99, could this be the actual pricing for Wii U? »

Have you ever wondered what would happen if our world was caught in the middle of war between characters from classic video games and the stars of Aaa titles like Assassin's Creed and Halo? Me either, but this video from Freddie Wong and Brandon Laatsch of Rocket Jump sets the record straight, once and for all.
The effects-laden short film Old School vs. New School throws live-action characters like Lara Croft and Master Chief into a battle with animated characters from the arcade games of our past. Rocket Jump worked with cosplayers from all of walks of life and apparently had some help from Internet Explorer to make it all happen. In our opinion the end result turned out great and we think you'll enjoy the video as much as we did. Check it out below to see who wins the battle!
I never realized how much Altair was into parkour, »

Scribblenauts Unlimited for Wii U and 3Ds is taking the series to a whole new level, giving players the ability to create just about any object they can think of, save it and share it with an online community. For the first time the game will also offer multiplayer, and now it looks like GameStop is going to offer an exclusive pre-order bonus!
That's right, anyone who pre-orders the game through GameStop will be able to pick up a real-life, wearable version of Maxwell's rooster hat! Not only that, the hat will be offered in two other colors resembling the hats worn by franchise newcomers, Lily and Doppelganger.
GameStop's listings for the game didn't have any info up at the time of writing this, but the official WB Games Twitter posted the photos and info yesterday. Apparently, GameStop will be dishing out the hats when you go to the store and pick up your game. »

In a post on the Bethesda forums, a company rep warned that getting the vampire-themed expansion onto the PS3 was proving to be a challenge and that in their words, "This is not a problem we’re positive we can solve."
The rep explained that the Bethesda team was hard at work at additional Dlc for Sony's platform, but that the complexity and size of "Dawnguard" made it challenge to port over to the PS3. Now this isn't final--Bethesda's still working with Sony to get "Dawnguard" onto the PS3, but it sounds like they're at least bracing gamers for the possibility that it might not happen.
This first piece of Dlc for Skyrim was released back in June, allowing you to play as either a member of the titular order of vampire hunters or as an actual vampire lord. In my review, I talked about some of the fun new »

This review will be shorter than others since I've heaped enough praise on The Walking Dead with its first two episodes. I'll say again what I said the first two times: Telltale has created a series of wrenching, emotional decisions in the middle of a collection of not-too-hard puzzles in a visually-impressive adaptation of the Robert Kirkman comic series (with some nods to the TV show).
Really, we're just talking details this time around, as the latest episode, "Long Road Ahead" tears at your guts with three abrupt, horrible deaths (and one possibly off-screen) as increasingly, Lee and Clementine's group begins to shrink and lose hope. And that's actually the most remarkable thing about this episode: how utterly, completely feeling lost and without hope you'll feel after the events of Telltale's latest.
After the events with the cannibal clan last episode and dwindling supplies at the motel, tensions in the »

Double Fine, a celebrated independent game studio based in San Francisco, recently revealed their first-ever iOS game. Dubbed Middle Manager of Justice, this free-to-play sim will task players with running the Justice Corporation where you'll hire, train and house a team of superheroes!
Developed as part of a three-game partnership with Dracogen, Middle Manager of Justice will have players taking on the responsibilities of the title character, through which they'll be able to build a custom superhero headquarters filled with rooms each serving a different purpose. As heroes are hired they'll be put into a strict training regime to boost their strength, health and intelligence.
These crime-fighters can then be put into action taking on small time thugs and super-villains of epic proportions. What makes this game unique compared to town-builder sims like The Simpsons Tapped Out is that players will actually have the chance to help their heroes out in battle, »

Considering the amount of Dlc that followed Borderlands, we've been assuming that Borderlands 2 would offer up the same amount of additional carnage. Today 2K Games delivered, revealing that 4 content packs would be available for the game, along with a “Season Pass” that could save us some coin if we plan on purchasing all of them.
The Dlc packs promise to “each feature several hours of gameplay and introduce new adventures, allies, enemies and environments” and each will retail for the same $9.99 that the original Borderlands Dlc demanded. The Season Pass will grant gamers access to all of these Dlc packs as they become available on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC and can be purchased as soon as Borderlands 2 is released.
So how much money will the Season Pass save you? About $10. With each pack costing about $10 individually and there being four packs in total the $30 price tag for the Season Pass is clearly the cheaper option. »

Team Bondi's latest has been picked up by Warner Brothers as the developer moves from the City of Angels to the mean streets of Shanghai in 1936. And from the description on the developer's new site, it looks like it'll be heading to the next generation of consoles and the PC.
We've got plot details about the new cop drama after the jump.
Team Bondi doesn't appear to be done playing cops and robbers, bringing details about Whore of the Orient, which will be making its way to Sony and Microsoft's new consoles. It's a particularly rich period in Chinese history when the nation was going through political and social upheaval.
Here's the official synopsis:
Shanghai, 1936. Whore of the Orient. Paris of the East. The most corrupt and decadent city on the planet, where anything can be had or done for the right price. Plaything of Western powers who greedily exploit the Chinese masses. »

Looks like Saturday Night Live has found the perfect antidote for potential viewer exodus in light of Kristin Wiig, Andy Samberg and, possibly, Jason Sudeikis' exits by tapping Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Daniel Craig to host the first three shows of the 38th season.

The greatest pitfall television series featuring high school cast members has is that the cast is already older when the series begins and they age out rapidly. Smallville stopped setting stories in the high school because the cast looked ridiculous on the sets. Confronting the inevitable graduation challenges the producers to find tortured ways to keep the cast intact after the caps and gowns are put away. Even Buffy the Vampire Slayer suffered from this challenge so it is refreshing to see Glee take graduation head on in the third season of the Fox series.
Glee the Complete Third Season came out on DVD last week and seeing it without the weeks-long breaks between cycles, allows you to see how they handled the coming graduation and choices the teens are being asked to make. While the series has never really focused on the kids’ academics, there was almost zero interest in ACTs or college visits, »

“The guys are great,” he continued. “The show is great. We’re big believers in the show.”
