There’s good news for UK fans of the hardest-working local government department in Indiana, as the fourth season of Parks and Recreation is finally set to surface on Dave.
The series took an age to reach British shores, with BBC4 picking up the first seasons at the same time as the penultimate season was airing in the Us. But despite a top-drawer cast, with Amy Poehler, Nick Offerman, Aziz Ansari and Jurassic World star Chris Pratt playing some of the most enjoyable characters in modern sitcom history in a pitch-perfect caricature of small midwestern city life, the show hasn’t really managed to grab the British audience it deserves.

“The Royals” are back to reign again.
In the first footage from season two, exclusively revealed by Variety, Cyrus (Jake Maskall) is now king, following the death of King Simon (Vincent Regan) at the end of the first season, and the sex, scandals and drugs are at an all-time high.
“I have the power, which is great,” Maskall says in the video (watch above). However, Prince Liam (William Moseley) is ready to avenge his father’s death. “Whatever it costs, no one is going to stand in his way,” Moseley says in the promo.
Princess Eleanor (Alexandra Park) is seen hooking up with someone, while Jasper (Tom Austen) peers over, Queen Helena stumbles across a body — which may or may not be dead, or perhaps passed out drunk — and her mother (Dame Joan Collins) is back. So is Ophelia (Merritt Patterson), who’s embracing Liam in the first glimpse at the new episodes. »

Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials has unveiled an intense new trailer.
As their journey takes them to the desolate Scorch landscape, Thomas and his fellow maze survivors team up with other fighters to take on Wckd and uncover the secrets it has been hiding.
Earlier this year, The Maze Runner was triumphant at the MTV Movie Awards, with O'Brien winning Breakthrough Performance and »
The film series, of course, is adapted from the bestselling book trilogy of the same name, written by James Dashner. Following the release of The Scorch Trials, The Death Cure, which is the final installment in the franchise, will hit theaters in 2017.
Last year’s The Maze Runner proved to be a huge hit at the box office. Although it didn’t post Hunger Games-size numbers, it more than made back it’s relatively small budget of $34 million, grossing over $340 million worldwide.
In this next chapter of the epic “Maze Runner” saga, Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) and his fellow Gladers face their greatest challenge yet: searching for clues about the mysterious and powerful organization known as Wckd. Their journey takes them to the Scorch, »

With the UK getting its first glimpse of the Asylum's latest disaster-piece tonight (July 23), we bring you the 8 best and very worst moments from Sharknado 3 below:
There's a certain art to a Sharknado opening scene. Viewers want their man-eating sharks and lots of blood from the get-go, and each new movie has to find a new way to satisfy them.
This time around, a hokey presidential ceremony - complete with a genuinely depressing cameo from all-time great comedian Robert Klein for the second year running - for the one-man army known as Fin Shepard (Ian Ziering) was quickly dispatched so the sharks could starting destroying the Us capital.
The actors formerly known as Josh Lyman and Walter White are teaming up to take the White House.
The Steven Spielberg-produced film is based on the Tony-winning play of the same name and stars Breaking Bad‘s Bryan Cranston, revisiting the role he had in the Broadway production, as President Johnson.

Gold Derby has exclusively learned the episodes that will be submitted to the Emmys by two of the 2015 nominees for Best Drama Supporting Actor. Jonathan Banks is entering the "Better Call Saul" episode titled "Five-0." Jim Carter selects the "Downton Abbey" episode called "Episode 5.09." -Break- Click here to see the updated list of all 2015 Emmy episode submissions Banks is the first person to be nominated in this category for multiple roles. His previous two nods were for "Wiseguy" (1989) and "Breaking Bad" (2013). On that AMC drama, he played the same character of Mike Ehrmantraut that he now has on the prequel series. His episode is the sixth of the debut season in which "Mike's tragic past comes back to haunt him, and he's forced to seek help from an unusual source. Meanwhile, Jimmy's moral compass is put to the test." Carter now has his fourth consecutive nomination for the ...' »
Welcome to the eighth installment of our summer trip through "The Sopranos" season 1. When I revisited early seasons of "The Wire," as well as the whole run of "Deadwood," I did separate versions of each review for newcomers and veterans, but over time realized that the newcomers weren't commenting much, if at all, and that it therefore made sense to simply do one review. Any significant spoilers for episodes beyond the one being reviewed will be contained in a separate section at the end of the review; so long as you avoid that, and the comments, you should be fine. Thoughts on the eighth episode, “The Legend of Tennessee Moltisanti," coming up just as soon as I devote my energies to the dignity of Connie Francis... "Where's my arc?" -Christopher And here we come to the meta — before it was even 100% meta. "The Sopranos" quickly became a hit for HBO »

Never fear, everybody, Aaron Paul's got this! Nothing can stop his awesome, and he is probably clutch in a real-life crisis -- which is not to be confused with a celebrity Twitter feud crisis, which is mostly just amusing. The latest crisis started with Nicki Minaj, who was denied a VMAs nomination for "Feeling Myself," leading to a passive-aggressive online spat with Taylor Swift, resulting in the "Breaking Bad" alum jumping in with an offer of peace pancakes and coffee.
Long story short, Nicki and her fans were upset with her VMAs snub(s), and Nicki tweeted some shots that seemed like they were directed at Taylor Swift and "Bad Blood," without ever mentioning Taylor's name. The Hollywood Reporter documented the back and forth, but here's part of the Nicki-Taylor exchange:

When the Television Academy decided to change the rules this year, one television show above the rest seemed to be most affected: "Orange is the New Black." By restricting genre submissions to time constraints, the hour-long (at least) episodes of Jenji Kohan's Netflix series have been forced into the drama category. Even without last year's winner ("Breaking Bad") and one of 2014's new nominees ("True Detective"), the race for best drama isn't an easy one to break into. But "Orange is the New Black" succeeded in doing so, which is no small feat. So did newbie "Better Call Saul," though it basically replaces the series ("Breaking Bad") it spun off.

Characters from stage, television and film have become increasingly calculative in nature. From Lord Varys (Game of Thrones), Gustavo Fring (Breaking Bad) and even Macbeth (uh… Macbeth), these individuals are manipulative and diabolical in equal measures, and unhinged in pursuit of their goals – displaying the principle traits of what has become known as ‘machiavellianism’.
Charisma, ambition, strategic, mastering the art of manipulation, learning how to obtain secretive information, disguising one’s true motives, the absolute abandonment of morality, and the use of sexuality as a forceful weapon continue to define some of the most interesting characters of modern pop-culture. Characters of this nature are justifiably described as ‘machiavellian’.
It’s a literary concept that’s almost 500 years old. As renaissance Italy was an era of political and religious struggle, the diplomat Niccolo Machiavelli was compelled to write ‘The Prince’ for his contemporaries, and their unenviable task of governance. Whilst »

5.4 Pope Breaks Bad
It seems that the characters on Falling Skies have had a hard time adjusting to the world of war. They've been fighting for three years, and admirably, they haven't stopped fighting. That's one of the reasons Cochise and the other Volm are impressed by the inferior but troublesome race of man-animals using primitive gunpowder weapons to bring down Espheni. Of course, not all humans have the power of positive thinking best demonstrated by the Mason family. Some humans find themselves damaged by the war, haunted by those that have been lost (or those yet to be lost), becoming tired and hungry and traumatized. Some humans are ready to turn on their own kind.

“I think I bring a new face to the Democratic Party,” said Quezada, who is seeking the seat in Bernalillo County. “We need to reach out to our young people — the young Chicanos, the young Latinos — and get them involved in this process and let them know this is important.”
Quezada played DEA agent Steven Gomez in the AMC series, which was set and filmed in Albuquerque. He currently sits on the Albuquerque school board, and is expected to face at least three challengers for the open seat in 2016.
The actor and comedian is running on a platform for more Mexican-American politicians and against urban sprawl. Bernalillo County is currently in the midst of controversy regarding development and water scarcity.
