Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Bryan Cranston made out in front of their spouses (and all of America). Sofia Vergara was placed on a rotating platform like a piece of Price Is Right merchandise. And CSI: Miami‘s Horatio Caine put on his sunglasses to drop a cheesy bon mot — or, more accurately, that’s what host Seth Meyers did when he channeled David Caruso.
Yes folks, the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards are in the books, and TVLine has your rundown of the 20 Best and Worst Moments (including one choice Maya Angelou callout that actually took place on the red carpet).
What do you suppose Sarah Silverman meant by the bizarre remark in her Emmy acceptance speech Sunday night that we're all made of molecules hurtling through space? Maybe it was an oblique reference to television itself, which is now less a medium than a disembodied signal that we watch at a time and place of our own choosing. On some level, the creators of TV seem to realize that their medium is heading into a future that's even less shackled to the living room screen and the three hours after dinner than ever. And yet, watching last night's 66th Primetime Emmy Awards, one felt a sense of déjà vu, of watching a medium celebrate its ties to its own past. We'd seen many of the honorees picking up trophies before, and maybe we'd even heard the same jokes and patter before.
Seth Meyers could win the Emmy for Best Awards »

Never again, TV Academy. Never again. I don't care if NBC has to do the Emmys in August because of football and if NBC is scared of going head-to-head with a competing award show. Doing the Emmys on Monday is just wrong. But we shall trudge on! Seth Meyers is hosting. Some fantastic TV shows and actors are nominated. Follow along. Comment below. Join the fun. Make the fun. 8:00 p.m. Et. That was some of the worst Red Carpet pre-show I've ever watched between E! and NBC. I never thought I'd miss Ryan Seacrest, but there ya go! 8:00 p.m. Seth Meyers was just outside being interviewed by Billy Bush just two minutes ago. How will he make it inside? How?!?!? 8:00 p.m. A countdown! 20 seconds to go. 8:00 p.m. And now Seth is inside on-stage. How Is That Possible, Billy Bush?!? 8:01 p.m. »

It seems Marvel’s McU-set spy series Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. is looking to embrace the world of the comic books even more. With the introduction of Mockingbird announced earlier in the week, we can now also report that Absorbing Man will make an appearance in the show’s second season premiere.
Absorbing Man, real name Carl Creel, is a super villain who can absorb anything he touches. As ever, the introduction of a new super-powered villain is bound to cause headaches for Coulson and the gang. It makes us wonder, too, if we’ll see Graviton again in this season.
Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns to Us screens on 23 September. »
Cult movie classic ‘Pretty Poison’ filmmaker Noel Black dead at 77 (photo: Tuesday Weld and Anthony Perkins in ‘Pretty Poison’) Noel Black, best remembered for the 1968 cult movie classic Pretty Poison, died of pneumonia at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital on July 5, 2014. Black (born on June 30, 1937, in Chicago) was 77. Prior to Pretty Poison, Noel Black earned praise for the 18-minute short film Skaterdater (1965), the tale of a boy skateboarder who falls for a girl bike rider. Shot on the beaches of Los Angeles County, the dialogue-less Skaterdater went on to win the Palme d’Or for Best Short Film and tied with Orson Welles’ Falstaff - Chimes at Midnight for the Technical Grand Prize at the 1966 Cannes Film Festival. Besides, Skaterdater received an Academy Award nomination in the Best Short Subject, Live Action category.

As we anticipate a potential Part III, catch up on the major stars' exploits since - and compare how they looked then and now:
Steve Martin - already an established Hollywood name before Father of the Bride - plays hapless patriarch George Banks, who suffers a series of ridiculous misfortunes (and a mild breakdown - the too-plentiful pack of hotdogs springs to mind) after his daughter announces that she's getting married. »
CSI: Miami and CSI: New York are no more, soon we’ll have CSI:Cyber but who would have thought that we would still have CSI: Las Vegas? When reviewing CSI: Complete Season 13 the most noticeable thing is it is a show that survives not only by pure popularity, but that it constantly adapts itself, never letting itself stagnate.
Though this is season thirteen (unlucky for some) I’d say that the big difference came in season twelve with Ted Danson and Elisabeth Shue. My initial surprise really was just how good Ted Danson can act now, but in a way his introduction into CSI brought him back into the shows I take time to watch. With the character of D.B. Russell, Danson moved into CSI: Las Vegas and made the role as head of CSI his own, Laurence Fishburne did well and of course we miss William Petersen as Gil »

Released in 1980, the low-budget sci-fi horror flick Without Warning has faded into relative obscurity over the course of the last several years, never managing to find itself on any home video format. That all changes this summer, when Scream Factory breathes new life into a lost and undiscovered gem. Read on for full release details!

It looked like CBS was ready to stop for the day after ordering five dramas and two comedies to series for the 2014-2015 season, but late Friday (May 9) afternoon, the network gave out one more series order, picking up "CSI: Cyber." "CSI: Cyber" stars Patricia Arquette and despite the title, the series actually will deal with the FBI's Cyber Crime Division. If the basics sound familiar, it's because Arquette's Avery Ryan debuted on the April 30 episode of "CSI." A similar process saw CBS' "NCIS: New Orleans" characters and setting introduced in a spring two-parter. There had been speculation that CBS might only pick up one of the nested spinoffs, but that speculation was incorrect, I guess. Between those two spinoffs and the Matthew Perry-centric remake of "The Odd Couple," CBS is banking heavily on familiarity for the 2014-2015 season. [It remains to be seen if an additional semi-spinoff, "How I Met Your Dad" goes to series. On Thursday, a variety of media reports had the order a done-deal, but CBS and 20th Century Fox TV both denied the news and, as of Friday, it seemed like things were far-from-certain.] While not quite on the level of Abraham fathering Isaac »

The original “CSI” gang is back together again as CBS has ordered a series for the “CSI” planted spinoff starring Patricia Arquette.
“CSI: Cyber” features Arquette as the head of FBI’s cyber crimes division in Quantico. The episode, which aired April 30, was written by “CSI” creator Anthony Zuiker, Carol Mendelsohn and Ann Donahue, the team that launched the original series in 2000.
CBS kept mum about the pickup but exec producer Jerry Bruckheimer spread the news via Twitter Friday afternoon.
Thrilled to have CSI: Cyber on CBS next season. #CSI—

The order for “CSI: Cyber” means that there will again be multiple “CSI” branded shows on CBS’ air next season. At its peak the franchise had three series concurrently. But “CSI: Miami” ended a 10-season run after the 2011-12 season, »

A team of scientists in the Arctic find themselves face-to-face with an adversary that, if unleashed on the world, could destroy life as we know it. Though it may sound similar to John Carpenter’s The Thing, Syfy’s original series Helix is its own creature… and a mutated, infectious one at that. With all thirteen of its first season episodes having aired earlier this year, Helix is now headed to Blu-ray and DVD, with a generous amount of bonus features for fans to enjoy.
According to Blu-ray.com, Helix: The Complete First Season will be available on Blu-ray and DVD on July 1st via Syfy and Sony Pictures Television. In addition to showcasing all the high-tension carnage in beautiful high-definition, the Blu-ray & DVD release of Helix comes with bonus features galore:

In what sounds like the set up for and episode CSI: Miami or some other show of that ilk (hell it probably has been) a Florida woman, Judy Rodrigo, is dealing with a very messy neighbor. It isn’t a case of a pack rat that has gotten out of control or someone with 100’s of cats. No, this is a case of an explosion in one apartment causing extensive damage in another. The catch here is the explosion was actually the body of the other neighbor.
As the story goes, an elderly neighbor passed away and went undetected for 2 weeks. During this time, gasses inside her body began to build, so much so that the abdomen burst, releasing gasses and fluids that ultimately leaked into the unit below hers which belongs to Judy.
It turns out that cleaning up the goopy remains of people that have soaked into the »

Star Wars Rebels composer Kevin Kiner gives an interview on the influence that composer John Williams has had on him and the score of the animated TV Series. Kiner talks about his huge guitar collection and how having been in a rock band allows him to add something different to the score of Rebels. We even get to hear some temp tracks in development and how Kiner mixes in Williams touches from the score of Star Wars: A New Hope.
Rebels acts as a bridge between the time periods of Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope and it's really interesting to hear some of those familiar melodies come back, in some part, into the show.
I couldn't help checking out Kiner's IMDb page and over the years he has done the score for a lot of TV and a few video games. Some notable projects other than the aforementioned are Stargate Sg-1, »
