14. No Good Deed Goes Unpunished Award: On The Amazing Race premiere, Amy, a double-amputee, and Daniel are on their way to a first-place finish and a $1 million bonus (the team that wins the first and last legs will win $2 million) when Daniel decides to tell Abbie and Ryan where the final clue is — "because that's just the type of guy he is," according to Amy. There is no karma for their good deed: Abbie and Ryan overtake them on the sprint to the Pit Stop and are now the ones eligible for the bonus. Guys, whatever happened to the...

Merry Christmas, everyone! Now let’s cut off all our hair and sell it so our children can eat! Wait, is that not how you celebrate the holidays with your family? Too bad, it’s how we’re celebrating this year. With the news that Universal has pushed back their Les Miserables to open on Christmas Day, the rest of Hollywood (completely relatively speaking) has joined in and mixed up their release date schedules like so much calendar Cobb salad. Just when will we see Aaron Eckhart as a new wave monster and where is that The Rock-as-concerned-dad drug film we all need and what the hell is Battle of the Year? After the break, let’s dream some dreams with the new release dates for Les Mis, Snitch, No Good Deed, Battle of the Year, and I, Frankenstein. Les Miserables The release date: December 25, 2012. Previous date: December 14, 2012. Why? First of all, it »

An unconfirmed Achievement list for Assassin’s Creed III has been leaked online, revealing a little bit about the game’s plot and some new features.
Assuming the list is accurate, the leaked Assassin’s Creed III Achievements do contain a few spoilers for the upcoming game. Consider this fair warning.
The best news is that the game’s multiplayer Achievements make up only 80G (spread out over five Achievements) of the total 1000G. Reaching level 20 and unlocking one hacked Astergo video seem to be the two that will be the most time-consuming, so those who prefer single-player won’t be missing much.
As for Assassin’s Creed III‘s single-player Achievements, it appears that you will visit a stadium and skyscraper during the modern-day portions of the game, before traveling to the Abstergo laboratory. Exactly what happens at all three locations is not known, however, at some point you »

Join in the fun and add your answers to the comments below.
What was your favorite scene?
Dan: My favorite scene was when Christopher went to Vicente and told him what was what. It wasn't just the first time I was impressed by Christopher, but it was the first time I was even interested in what he was doing. Way to go!

Though it’s unlikely that a manual on feuding families exists, there has been plenty of examples of their rules and functions throughout much of popular media – with Dallas itself serving as an excellent illustration for the delicate intricacies of how proper family feuds work. In almost every example, there comes a time when outside forces initiate an attack on one member of said feuding family that unites the clan against a common foe – if only to welcome more infighting another day.
‘No Good Deed’ serves as a reminder that, for all their eternal squabbling, the Ewings still wield a mighty fist when it comes to protecting their interests against intruders foolish enough to think any division between them means a weakened front. It may force folks ...

The original Dallas started out with two brothers trying to make Daddy proud. Decades later, Dallas runs on the same underlying theme and, thankfully, it was as compelling as ever in "No Good Deed."
Disloyalty is dangerous, especially when you're playing chicken with a Venezuelan oil cartel. John Ross should have been smart enough to know not to give someone like Vicente the heads up that he planned to turn him in to the police. Then again, he's in prison for murder and grasping at straws. Fear can make you say stupid things.
We all knew John Ross' beat down was coming, but I loved the sequence of events. Just as Bobby explained to Vicente that he'd never be able to pump a drop of oil from Southfork and told him to get the Hell off his ranch, Cano was having his men beat the crap out of John Ross. »

No good deed goes unpunished, as pop superstar Lady Gaga found out when she tried to raise money for victims of the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami in Japan. The accusations came in the form of a nasty lawsuit claiming that the charity she had set up for the victims was not donating 100 percent of the proceeds, and to settle the claim Gaga will write a big check for charity.
The lawsuit claims that fans and visitors to her website were misled with a charitable promotion selling wristbands – an idea similar to Lance Armstrong’s “Live Strong” bracelets. The charity stated that all proceeds would directly go to relief funds. However, the lawsuit claims that the sales tax and $4 charge for shipping created additional funds that were not donated.
Originally, Gaga offered the wristbands for just five bucks with the message “We Pray For Japan” stamped on them »

For those of you who watch Person of Interest and wonder about the ongoing mysteries surrounding the very nature of the Machine, this was a very important episode. Now that the season is winding down it’s finally time for all of the elements that have been put into play in the present and in the flashbacks of Harold Finch’s past to collide just in time for next week’s season finale. Until then a few more breadcrumbs were tossed down in relation to Finch’s past and how it’s going to have a definite effect on everyone’s present as ‘No Good Deed’ went unpunished in this week’s episode.
‘Like you’ll ever be done spying on Mr. Glasses’
Immediately at the start of the episode, we find Reese back on Finch’s trail as he continues »
[Spoiler Alert! If you haven't watched this week's episode of Person of Interest, stop reading now, or else we will enter your social security number into the Machine...]
Another week, another big reveal on Person of Interest. At the end of this week’s episode, “No Good Deed,” Reese (Jim Caviezel) traced Finch (Michael Emerson) back to what he thought was Finch’s home address. But when Reese got there, Finch’s fiancée opened the door. (Dun-dun-dun!) Yes, Finch used to be engaged, but his girlfriend thinks he died a few years ago in an accident. That means Reese isn’t the only one who lost a relationship because of his job.

While last week's Blue Bloods focused on Erin, "Collateral Damage" brought Jamie back into the spotlight.
Jamie's attitude bordered between understandable anger and adolescent snarkiness while Frank had him in hiding after a hit was put out on his alter ego. I realized that being taken off the job and cooped up at Dad's wasn't his first choice but his stubborn disbelief over his father's concern made him appear more childish than disgruntled.
As Henry tried to convey in this Blue Bloods quote,
Take your worst fear, multiply it by 100. You're not even in the ball park. You're not even in the parking lot next to the ball park. | permalink
That's the equivalent of Frank's fear over losing another son. Somehow the youngest Reagan couldn't garner much sympathy for his stressed out Dad.
Jamie was horrified that Frank was willing to sit back and let the hit on Noble Sanfino take place. »

Idris Elba’s film career is going great guns at the moment, with a heartily varied range of roles. Now he wants to try his hand at being truly menacing. He’s signed on to co-star with Taraji P Henson in the thriller No Good Deed.The act of charity in question involves Henson as a former District Attorney who has opted to become a stay-at-home-mom to her two children. Their lives take a turn for the scary when they offer a ride to a compelling stranger whose car runs off the road in front of them. Cue kidnapping, terror and, we’d expect, Henson getting the chance to be tough.Clearly, there is a lesson to be learned from all of this: do not ever give strangers a ride from the side of the road even if they are as seemingly charming and handsome as Idris Elba.Among Giants director Sam Miller, »

Don't let Idris Elba into the house! That's the lesson Taraji P. Henson will learn the hard way thanks to the thriller they've both just been cast in, called No Good Deed (not to be confused with the current Good Deeds). Henson will play a new stay-at-home mom who allows a handsome, mysterious stranger to come into her house when he claims car trouble, though he then takes her and her family hostage. (Whoops!) The movie will reunite Elba with his Luther director Sam Miller and the studio Screen Gems, where he made Obsessed; this time, he's the villain, but let's hope he learned a valuable lesson about the threatening efficacy of winking emoticons. »

We’ve got a couple of casting stories to share with you today. First up, The Mentalist star Simon Baker has settled on a feature project to shoot during his upcoming hiatus from the CBS series. Variety reports that Baker will star in the comedy I Give it a Year. The film stars Rafe Spall (Anonymous) and centers on “the comedic trials and tribulations of a pair of newlyweds during their first year as a married couple.” Dan Mazer, a writer-director on Da Ali G Show and a credited scribe on Borat and Bruno, is set to direct the pic. It’s a bit of a departure for Baker who’s best known for dramatic roles, and with Mazer onboard I think we can safely assume this won’t be your average romcom. Hit the jump for casting news concerning the thriller No Good Deed. Additionally, Idris Elba (Thor) and »
