Khloe Kardashian Debuts Crazy Braids: A Ranking of Her Best & Worst Hair Styles

21 October 2014 | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

We all have that bad hair day, but Khloe Kardashian's hair has a life of its own.

Khloe Kardashian works out in style, a new hair style that is!

Recently, Khloe stepped out in cornrows on the way to the gym, and now she’s working out in long braids.

Got it in early today with @gunnarfitness

The 30-year-old is no stranger to mixing up her hair and so, in order to fully appreciate Khloe's various 'dos, we're ranking them from worst to best.

9. Her long may be good for boxing but given that we know her hair's full-potential, they just don't do her justice.

Who doesn't love an early morning bathroom selfie?!?

My So-Called Life: where are they now?

24 August 2014 10:34 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Oscar-winning to Homeland and more, here's what the cast of My So-Called Life have been up to over the past 2 decades...

Twenty years has passed since we were first introduced to the characters of My So-Called Life, twenty years! Where has the time gone? And more importantly when did I get so old?

While most of you won’t really care too much what I’ve been up to since the show finished, let’s take a look at what the actors have been up to in the years since the cancellation of what is frankly the greatest teen TV drama ever.

Claire Danes (Angela Chase)

After breaking out in My So-Called Life, Danes focused on her film career first with a leading role in 1995’s Little Women and then supporting roles in smaller but interesting films like Home For The Holidays, How to Make An American Quilt and »

Deepsea Challenge 3D Review

31 July 2014 10:01 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

What do famous directors do when crafting groundbreaking cinematic adventures becomes a mundane chore? They build their own pressure-resistant submersible, sail around the ocean for a few weeks, and dive deeper than any man has ever attempted to plunge alone. Yes, James Cameron is a modern-day Scrooge McDuck, spending limitless amounts of money just so he can carry out an underwater adventure while all of us watch, becoming this zany character who doesn’t even seem fit for reality. I mean, South Park said it best in the episode entitled “Raising The Bar” – “James Cameron doesn’t do what James Cameron does for James Cameron. James Cameron does what James Cameron does because James Cameron is James Cameron.” Welcome to Deepsea Challenge 3D.

Ever since Cameron was a small boy, he dreamed of exploring oceanic depths many thought to be unreachable. Confessing his geeky obsession with underwater exploration, Cameron wanted »

Marvel Changes Movies Part 3: Marvel’s Effect on the Industry

30 June 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

With 32 movies in only fourteen years, Marvel built an empire unlike anything previously seen in Hollywood.  By taking things in-house, they set the bar higher than ever for superhero films and proved that the concept of a mega-franchise was not only viable, but extremely profitable.  In 2009, they joined forces with Disney’s empire in order to grow their brand recognition even further and with their post-Avengers films, they’ve proven that things are only getting better.  With all of this success, it would be impossible for other filmmakers and the owners of other franchises not to take notice.  Today we’ll look at the ways in which Marvel is changing the way movies are made.

Movies are changing, and Marvel is at the helm.  Join us for part 3 of a four part special event as we explore where Marvel came from, how they rose to silver screen prominence, how they’ve changed filmmaking, »

Review: Steven Bochco goes retro with TNT's 'Murder in the First'

9 June 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Earlier this spring, the complete run of "Hill Street Blues" was released on DVD, and it was remarkable to see just how well the groundbreaking cop drama held up three decades later. Some elements of it felt dated, but on the whole, you could find common DNA with many of this century's best dramas. That's because for a long stretch in the '80s and '90s, "Hill Street" co-creator Steven Bochco was way out ahead of the curve, experimenting with what was and wasn't possible within the confines of a broadcast network drama, and in the process paving the way for this cable golden age in which we live. "Hill Street" popularized multi-layered, morally complex serialized storytelling in primetime. "NYPD Blue" broke down the barriers between network and cable with its raw language, sexuality and criminal subject matter, and the popularity of Andy Sipowicz (who would've been a villain »

Watch: Teddy Sears on grabbing the 'brass ring' with 'Masters of Sex' role

22 May 2014 7:52 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

It took a few years in a career filled with guest roles and failed series (including "Raising the Bar" and "The Defenders"), but Teddy Sears is finally on a hit show. As the actor told us during our recent webcam chat, "I would like to think it's going to be a nice long career if I could draft it up, just sort of stick around, and one of these jobs is going to be one that will be the brass ring. For me, 'Masters of Sex' is my brass ring." -Break- Follow Gold Derby on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Tumblr! On the freshman Showtime series, Sears plays Dr. Austin Langham, a young doctor who gets more than he bargained for when he volunteers to take part in a study on sexuality. Langham works at Washington University in the 1950s with the famed Dr. William Masters (Michael Sheen). Even though he is married, »

The cast of Angel: 10 years on

4 March 2014 7:44 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature Sarah Dobbs 5 Mar 2014 - 07:00

Sarah digs into the post-Angel careers of David Boreanaz, Alexis Denisof, Amy Acker, Charisma Carpenter and more...

It’s been about a decade since the last episode of Angel, the Buffy the Vampire Slayer spin-off series about the vampire with a soul, aired. The final episode of season five, Not Fade Away, first appeared on Us television screens on 19 May 2004. That seems simultaneously like a very long time ago, and not very long ago at all, because time is vast and human brains are small and fallible, but it’s safe to say that in TV years, it’s a pretty long goddamned time.

The men and women behind the characters we used to spend one night a week with have gone on to other things – some bigger and better, others kind of rubbish – and unless you’re a particularly obsessive superfan, you »
