#Gladiators, I don't know what's going on this season, but Scandal is completely stepping it up after the messy and uninspired season four, which, while not an all-out disaster, like my middle-school look of bangs and colorful stretchy polyester fabrics, or, as its known in the streets, "going full Blossom," it was certainly making its legion of faithful viewers wonder what was happening to our beloved show. All the sexy intrigue had gone out the window. The Olitz will-they/won't-they was getting repetitive. Once-moving characters like Huck and Cy were reduced to one-dimensional caricatures of their former selves. And catchphrases that once meant something quickly wore out their welcome.

"Look around you, James... everything you ever stood for... a ruin!" Sony Pictures has unveiled two kick ass, action-packed new TV spots for the next Bond movie Spectre, directed by Sam Mendes and starring Daniel Craig as Agent 007.

Daniel Craig returns as the super spy for what could be his final adventure. This sneak peak has crumbling buildings, airplane chases, and a thrilling run through the streets of Mexico City during the Day of the Dead festival. It looks like Bond is in real trouble this time. It's kill or be killed in what could be Jame's greatest adventure yet.
