For most of this week’s Grey’s Anatomy, Alex dodges Jo so completely and totally that she becomes all but convinced that he’s dumping her. (Seeing as she passes her intern exam without even a “Way to go!” from her boyfriend, I can’t say I blame her!)

Los Angeles — Sony Corp. is taking a deeper dive into ultrahigh-definition video as it comes out Friday with "After Earth," the first of Sony's three movies this year both shot and presented in the emerging 4K digital format. At a screening for journalists, I got a close-up look at even the pores on Will Smith's face as details were rendered with greater clarity on the big screen.
Sony and other consumer electronics makers are betting that 4K images will become the new standard, prompting consumers to buy fancier TVs just as they did when high definition, or HD, rolled out over the past decade. It could also entice more people to buy movie tickets to see for themselves what the super-clear format is like.
But the more detailed images present a host of problems. They use four times the number of pixels as the current HD standard, which results in larger data files. »
In this week’s The Walking Dead, it isn’t exactly a shock when Merle takes it upon himself to execute Rick’s “agreement” with the Governor by delivering him Michonne. What is a shock, however, is that, by the end of the episode, we actually feel (almost, kinda-sorta) sorry for the bastard. Here’s how it all plays out.
Debate Club | As the hour kicks off, Rick informs Daryl and Merle of the Governor’s offer. Daryl, natch, is wholeheartedly against handing over Michonne. “It just ain’t us,” he argues. Even Merle is taken aback that Rick would consider it, »

Previously on Once Upon A Time: Cora traipsed through time and space, dispensing evil where'er she went; including but not limited to poisoning Snow White's mother and then offering Young Snow the chance to trade someone else's life for her mother's, all because she wanted her daughter to someday be queen.

The state of Kansas is forcing a man to pay child support to he donated his sperm to a lesbian couple three years ago — even after a written agreement that stated otherwise. Do You think that’s fair?

Now, after Angela lost her job and the family was put on welfare, the state of Kansas is asking William for child support — and making him fork over $6,000.
The lesbian couple found William on Craigslist, and all three signed a contract agreeing that he would have no legal responsibility for the child.
