Americans, the next time you entertain the notion that your vote doesn’t matter, remember Pitch‘s Ginny Baker and the Major League Baseball All-Star Game.
Even though Ginny has been playing for the Padres for all of five minutes and isn’t on the official ballot, in this week’s episode a massive online campaign (36 million names on a petition!) lands the female ballplayer a coveted spot in the summer classic. #PutHerInTheGame, indeed.
Read on for the play-by-play of “The Break.”
It's been nothing but tough for Tom Kirkman. He's getting pressure from all sides and his Mr. Nice Guy act might have to take a back seat. We know Kirkman has the backbone to make the tough decisions, but is he really ready to go full-fledged hard ass?
So what's going to happen next?
He has to make a decision regarding war now that the enemy has been identified, but it doesn't seem Kirkman is convinced. Hannah is still investigating what happened inside the Capitol with MacLeish, but there might not be any more time for her to get to the truth. Kirkman has to make a decision, and he has to make it now.
It also appears there are domestic issues at hand for Kirkman to deal with including his wife talking with Congressman Hookstraten. Why would Alex feel it's okay to talk with that evil woman? It's obvious »

It’s cinema sequel time once more, film fans. Generally follow-ups pop up with great frequency during the Summer months, but this flick bends the release rules on many levels. For one thing, a dozen years have passed by since the last installment. Not quite the 20 years between Independence Days, but still rather lengthy. Two more things: it’s based on a book series that focuses on a female protagonist. No, it’s not from a Ya (young adult) series, so get The Hunger Games and Twilight, out of your heads, since this characters has several years on Bella and Katniss. Plus, this is not an action epic set in a dystopian future, rather the present day (although some elements do venture into fantasy). So in 2001 we delved into her diary, three years later she took us to the edge of reason, and now we get to meet Bridget Jones’S Baby. »

Bridget Jones is a goddess. At least she was in 2001, when Texas-born Renée Zellweger introduced author Helen Fielding's weight-obsessed, love-starved, accident-prone British singleton to the screen in Bridget Jones' Diary. Zellweger deservedly nabbed an Oscar nomination as Best Actress; award talk evaporated, however, for the 2004 sequel Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason. The actress was back juggling her affections for snobbish barrister Mark Darcy (Colin Firth) and her caddish boss Daniel Cleaver (Hugh Grant). But the follow-up played like it'd been attacked by a charisma-killing virus. And so for a dozen years, »

Good grief, the Fosters can't ever seem to catch a break!
To be fair, if their lives were all sunshine and rainbows, there wouldn't be anything worth watching. The Fosters Season 4 Episode 3 was not nearly as intense as the previous two episodes, but it was far from sunshine and rainbows.
Watch The Fosters Season 4 Episode 3 Online
If there was a competition on which Foster was suffering the most, it would definitely be between Marianna and Lena. The show is doing a fantastic job with the aftermath of the Nick situation.
My heart aches for Lena. She's trying so desperately to keep it together, but she's genuinely afraid. She's throwing everything she has into making sure their home and the school are safe. She's traumatized!
Lena obsessively checking in on the kids at home was devastating. She's insistent that they install a security system in the home and agitated that Stef isn't getting it done quickly. »

In the Special Editions, the Rebo Band were big victims of George Lucas' digital wand. Here's how CGI changed them - seemingly forever...
In 1997, Star Wars began its ineluctable turn to the digital side. A New Hope, re-released in January that year, marked the first of George Lucas’s Special Edition revamps of his blockbuster saga; then 20 years old, the original 70s print was decaying. Effects shots were damaged. Darth Vader’s once imposing black mask and cloak had faded to a wan shade of pale blue.
To combat the ravages of time, Lucas embarked on an expensive and lavish restoration of the movies, improving the quality of the sound, re-balancing and correcting the colours and placing them back where they belonged: on the big screen. While fans were delighted at the prospect of seeing Star Wars in theatres again, Lucas’ reissues didn’t stop at »
