Life is Strange: Episode One–Chrysalis
PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PC
In many ways Life is Strange, the new serialized adventure title from Dontnod and Square-Enix, has set the benchmark pretty high for future episodic releases. With it’s gorgeous presentation, high production values, and tons of replayability, this is going to be a tough game for the format to top for a long time to come.
Telling the tale of a newly minted adult returning to her hometown, Life is Strange is very much a typical coming of age story. What’s special about this particular effort though is the amount of detail which is put into the details of our protagonist’s world. After a thrilling and ambitious prologue set amid the endless dreamscape of our central character, Max(ine), the game opens in a classroom and immediately gives you access to an almost daunting amount of information. »

Disney Junior’s hit animated series Sofia the First will introduce Elena of Avalor, a 16-year-old princess who hails from a kingdom inspired by diverse Latin cultures and folklore — and then will be spun off into her own series, it was announced Thursday.
“What excites us most,” Disney Junior Worldwide Evp Nancy Kanter said in a statement, “is the chance to use distinctive animation and visual design to tell wonderful stories influenced by culture and traditions that are familiar to the worldwide population »
Rob Thomas. Solving crimes. Petite, blonde sass factory. Who eats brains. If it weren’t for that pesky little cerebrophagia bit at the end, you might think this was an announcement for the return of Veronica Mars to television. Or that the Veronica Mars movie ended with a crazy twist you hadn’t heard about. Which might be cool, actually. At any rate, it’s the return of Thomas to television. This time it’s with iZombie, the story of a medical student/petite, blonde sass factory named Olivia (Rose McIver) who also solves murders by eating the brains of the victims. It’s one more in a long line of a zombie genre craze that has refused to wither away, but there are a lot of reasons to be hopeful that this show will help twist the undead into some new creative spaces. At the very least, it looks miles away from what The Walking Dead is »

TLC could be back with a new album but Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins and Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas need your help!
The two remaining members launched a Kickstarter campaign on Monday asking fans to help fund their final studio album.
“We want to do an album but we want to do it on our own,” T-Boz said. Chili added, “We want to be creative, think outside of the box and just be free to do what we really want to do, we want to give you guys the quality of work that we have always given you.”

And they promised the new album, if funded, “will stay true to the TLC sound.”
Why the online campaign?
“Through Kickstarter, what’s so cool about that, with your pledges, we can make it a possibility. I’ll say there’s no better way than to do it with our fans because they made »

With lines like “The Internet — God’s gift to psychopaths,” MTV’s Eye Candy is definitely a don’t-watch-with-the-lights-off kind of show.
The network’s new thriller, which premiered Monday, transforms “it” girl Victoria Justice into I.T. girl Lindy Sampson, a 20-something parolee who moonlights as a(n unlicensed) private detective for missing persons. Think of her as a next-generation Veronica Mars, sans the golden locks and extra-long camera lens.
But Lindy’s adventures in cyber space take a seriously twisted turn when she discovers that one of the three guys she met through a dating app is also »
In short, the story follow Liv, a zombie working at a morgue who must eats brains to keep from turning into a zombie - but it also gives her access to the memories of the person whos brains she eats.
Not sure how I feel about this one, but I don't think I'm the demo.
What do you make of the trailer?
iZombie [Continued ...] »
Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas is back with a new show on The CW. iZombie is a witty, original take on the zombie psychic detective genre, and the first trailer for the series has just been unveiled.
To me, this looks a little like a mixture of Tru Calling and Veronica Mars, and with Thomas leading the charge as the executive producer, you can definitely feel that Mars vibe coming from this show. For fans who were disappointed with last year's much-hyped Veronica Mars film, this could be a cool way to recapture some of what we loved about Thomas' earlier series, but wrapped up and displayed in a new package.
Rose McIver (“Masters of Sex,” “Once Upon a Time”) stars as Olivia “Liv” Moore, a rosy-cheeked, disciplined, over-achieving medical resident who had her life path completely mapped out… until the night she attended a party that unexpectedly turned into a zombie feeding frenzy. »

Hardcore zombie fans probably won’t be impressed by the CW’s walking dead, since “iZombie” star Rose McIver looks or acts nothing like a corpse in the first trailer for the new series.
In fact, she mostly looks like a pretty teenager going through a goth phase, thanks to white face make-up and extra mascara around the eyes.
But fans of the horror genre that has become a worldwide phenomenon thanks to AMC’s “The Walking Dead” will be happy to hear she does, »

Yesterday was a big day for The CW. Not only did the network win its first-ever Golden Globe last night, when Jane the Virgin‘s Gina Rodriguez took home the top prize for Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical Series, but earlier in the day at the Television Critics Association winter press tour, it also renewed all eight shows on its fall schedule, including lower-rated series like the aforementioned Jane, Reign, and The 100, and also released the first trailers for two of its new series, iZombie and The Messengers, which will both be premiering in the spring. Of the two series, iZombie, which is loosely based on the DC/Vertigo comic and comes from Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas, is the one getting more buzzed, but we’ve got both trailers for you to look at so you can decide whether you want to tune into these shows or not. »

Following The CW's TCA Winter Tour presentation over the weekend, the network has debuted the first trailers for its two new mid-season series "iZombie" and "The Messengers".
"Veronica Mars" creator Rob Thomas produces "iZombie" about an over-achieving medical resident who attends a party where she unexpectedly becomes one of the undead. Trying to get over her urges to feed on human brains, she takes a job in the Seattle coroner's office. The show premieres March 17th.
A month later on April 10th comes "the Messengers," in which five strangers find an instant connection after being hit by the shock wave of a mysterious object plummeting to Earth. The five become newly christened Angels of the Apocalypse and may be the only thing that stops the Rapture from happening.

Leave it to The CW to make a TV show about a zombie that you’d brag to your friends about dating. Based on the DC Comic of the same name, iZombie is a show about a young woman named Liv (get it?), who is holding up pretty well despite being dead. Liv works with dead […]

Following The CW Network's announcement with the midseason premiere dates earlier today, the network has debuted a new trailer for the upcoming series IZombie. From executive producer Rob Thomas (Veronica Mars), IZombie makes its series debut on Tuesday, March 17, (9:00-10:00pm Et), following an all-new episode of The Flash (8:00-9:00pm Et). Rose McIver (Masters of Sex, Once Upon a Time) stars as Olivia "Liv" Moore, a rosy-cheeked, disciplined, over-achieving medical resident who had her life path completely mapped out... until the night she attended a party that unexpectedly turned into a zombie feeding frenzy.
As one of the newly undead, Liv has devised a way to resist her baser urges to devour fresh human brains - she's taken a job in the Seattle coroner's office. In this appropriately dead-end job, she can secretly snack on the brains of the many Jane and John Doe corpses »
At the Television Critics Association winter press tour, executive producers Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim and Andrew Kreisberg revealed that they are working on a “very general idea” related to the character Brandon Routh plays in Arrow.
In addition to his myriad comic book appearances, Ray/The Atom — who can alter the size of his body as well as other objects — has turned up in numerous animated series, »
Before a busy Television Critics Association press tour day that featured the renewal of eight fall dramas for next season, The CW also announced its adjusted midseason schedule. The spring announcement includes time slots for "iZombie" and "The Messengers," a shift for "Supernatural" and a home for the new reality competition "Cedric's Barber Battle." From "Veronica Mars" veterans Rob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero-Wright, "iZombie" will premiere on Tuesday, March 17 at 9 p.m. after a new episode of "The Flash." The drama, which stars Rose McIver as a medical resident who becomes a zombie and uses her undead state to help fight crime, will be taking the place that "Supernatural" has filled strongly this season. Don't worry about "Supernatural," though. The freshly renewed series will shift to Wednesdays at 9 p.m. after "Arrow" starting on March 18. "The 100," also newly renewed on Sunday morning, will complete its second season on March »

The CW announced its midseason schedule today at the winter gathering of the Television Critics Association in Pasadena, CA, including the series premieres of new dramas IZombie and The Messengers, the new unscripted competition series Cedric's Barber Battle and a new cycle of Whose Line Is It Anyway?
From executive producer Rob Thomas (Veronica Mars), IZombie makes its series debut on Tuesday, March 17, (9:00-10:00pm Et), following an all-new episode of The Flash (8:00-9:00pm Et). Rose McIver (Masters of Sex, Once Upon a Time) stars as Olivia "Liv" Moore, a rosy-cheeked, disciplined, over-achieving medical resident who had her life path completely mapped out... until the night she attended a party that unexpectedly turned into a zombie feeding frenzy.

The CW might supersize Arrow‘s super world even further, it was hinted Sunday at the Television Critics Association winter press tour.
With Arrow and its offshoot The Flash flourishing in the wake of their two-night crossover, CW president Mark Pedowitz said, “We are having some preliminary discussions about expanding [that] universe, but we have not vetted them out.” Stressing the need to be “judicious” about adding more DC Comics fare, he posed, “Could there be another hour in that universe? Possibly. As long as there’s no audience fatigue.”
As for future Arrow/Flash crossover events, Pedowitz sees them being »
Rob Thomas is a writer, so he's obviously concerned with story and character and other matters creative. But he's also a veteran writer/producer — and, as creator of "Veronica Mars," a man who had to do a lot of selling over the last couple of years — so he also is well aware of when art has to bend for commerce. So when Thomas — who, with fellow "Veronica Mars" vet Diane Ruggiero-Wright, has adapted the Vertigo comic "iZombie" for the CW — was asked why Rose McIver's character, Liv, doesn't bother with spray tanning, hair dye, or other attempts to disguise her condition as an intelligent zombie, he was very blunt. "In some ways, it's the least logical decision she could make," he admitted, since many of the show's other zombies (notably David Anders as a drug-dealing zombie named Blaine) do make an effort to look more normal.

The CW was in a very generous mood as it held court Sunday at the Television Critics Association winter press tour, announcing renewals for eight of its current dramas.
The series being ordered for the 2015-16 TV season include Arrow (which will enter Season 4), Jane the Virgin (Season 2), Reign (Season 3), Supernatural (Season 11), The 100 (Season 3), The Flash (Season 2), The Originals (Season 3), and The Vampire Diaries (Season 7).
Which of these eight (!), early renewals has you cheering most loudly?
