Sexually unapologetic women are all over TV these days: From “Outlander” to “Orphan Black" The Starz series, with its “revolutionary” wedding episode, joins a several recent shows "that treat the sexual activities of their leading ladies with refreshing matter-of-factness and genuine interest,” says Maureen Ryan. She adds: "But almost lost amid this welcome expansion of protagonists is a really important fact: In these narratives, sexual women are not shamed by the shows themselves for their desires. The women own their sexuality and the narratives are interested in exploring their desires -- and in judging their mistakes, carnal and otherwise, without stealthily blaming them for being sexual in the first place." Study: Tweeting while watching TV can leave you with fewer brain cells University of Sussex researchers found that "people who used a higher number of media devices concurrently also had smaller grey matter density in the part of the brain »

With their scorching cover of "Baby, Please Don't Go," Sons of Anarchy house band the Forest Rangers add to the storied lineage of a ubiquitous blues standard. Their no-frills version is set to appear in the seventh season's fourth episode, "Poor Little Lambs," which airs on Tuesday, September 30th.
SoA music supervisor Bob Thiele says this straightforward, guitar-heavy approach is exactly what the Forest Rangers had in mind. "This one ain't rocket science," he tells Rolling Stone, calling the track "a straight-up, balls-out version of the blues classic made famous by Muddy Waters. »
In the coming years, AMC will roll out spinoffs to two of its most successful TV series: Better Call Saul (the continuation of the Breaking Bad universe) and an untitled companion to The Walking Dead. While the former will feature a character previously introduced on its predecessor, the Walking Dead spinoff won’t be connected to the current show – other than existing in the same zombie-infested world.
Robert Kirkman, Gale Ann Hurd, and David Alpert of The Walking Dead will serve as executive producers on the new series, with Dave Erickson (Sons of Anarchy) as showrunner. The pilot script, written by Erickson and Kirkman, was well received by AMC, which gave the series the green light ...

A new report revealed a list of characters from The Walking Dead companion series, which recently received a pilot order, but I suggest you to take this with a grain of salt. I 100% believe that the story on TVLine is legitimate and that these are a list of characters that people are auditioning for. However, since Season 3, nearly everyone audition for a recurring role on The Walking Dead had no idea what character they were auditioning for.
Instead, producers would give actors a fake character name and a backstory that was similar to the actual character they would be playing. Of course, after they got the role, the actual information would be revealed. This kind of character information is usually given out to casting agents, so it makes sense that Robert Kirkman and the other producers would want to hide any character reveals.

The Simpsons enters its 26th season Sept. 28. Pause and try to absorb that information. Good? Okay. Now think about how recognizable and familiar the style of The Simpsons actually is: Can you think of another animated series from the past quarter-decade of American animation that's quite as iconic? Family Guy comes close, but it's still far off. Which is what's so cool about this collection of art from DeviantArt user Adn-z. It takes the familiar Simpsons aesthetic and applies it to other popular TV shows, like Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones. (Adn-z runs the Draw The Simpsons Tumblr, so he's something of an expert. »
Syfy continues to bolster its original programming with the renewal of both Dominion and Defiance. The two drama series will return with 13 episodes each – joining the recently commissioned Hunters, created by Gale Anne Hurd, and the highly anticipated television adaptation of Arthur C Clarke’s Childhood’s End.
Dominion is categorised as a ‘Us apocalyptic supernatural action’ series, and was created by Vaun Wilmott (Sons Of Anarchy) as a loose adaptation of the 2010 film Legion, written by Peter Schink and Scott Stewart. Starring Christopher Egan (Letters To Juliet), Tom Wisdom (Romeo And Juliet), Roxanne McKee (Game Of Thrones) and Anthony Stewart Head (Percy Jackson: Sea Of Monsters), the show is set in a time when God has vanished, and Archangel Gabriel is waging war on mankind. Archangel Michael allies himself with man, against Gabriel, and lives among humans in a fortified city, awaiting the arrival of a prophesied saviour. On »

Peter Weller may still be best known for blowing away street punks as the original RoboCop, but he’s equally riveting these days as bad cop Charles Barosky on Sons of Anarchy, a series he has also directed. “I like acting, and if a good part comes along, I’ll do it,” he says. “But I get much more satisfaction from directing.” He’s helming three episodes in SoA’s seventh and final season, and his character has returned as well; he also directs this Sunday’s episode of FX’s The Strain. Weller spoke with Vulture about Barosky’s backstory, why he skipped the RoboCop reboot, the cult of The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension, and how he became “a Ph.D. pretentious asshole.”How did you get cast as Barosky?I was directing the show, and Kurt [Sutter] came up to me and said, “We have this character. »

Lying is a difficult thing to get away with. Once the first lie is told, the only option to successfully maintain a falsehood is to continue lying ad nauseum. Lies get caught up in one another, with obvious and perilous ambiguities presenting themselves to the offended party. Sooner or later not even another set of falsified details can save face from what has already been done even with the best intentions. Which is where Sons of Anarchy finds itself a quarter of the way through its final season, scrambling after years of character manipulations that either contradict each other or require so much fixing that everything seems too churned through to have any real emotional punch.

Sons Of Anarchy's final season really needs to get motoring, and soon. Here's Gabriel's review of this week's episode...
[After a short interruption, our Sons Of Anarchy reviews have now resumed for the final season - Ed]
This review contains spoilers
7.3 Playing With Monsters
Final seasons are, by their very nature, tricky.
The longer a show runs, the more entrenched and developed the conflicts are, the harder it is to provide a satisfactory pay off. Dexter, for example, had so much it had to wrap up that it simply chose to avoid resolution altogether in favour of a misguided ambiguous ending. Meanwhile, Breaking Bad went for an arguably too neat resolution of everything that had come before, but did it with so much verve and style that it was hard to complain. What made that work was the careful meting out of resolution over eight episodes, making the final season feel like one long, rich and very satisfying finale. There were no arbitrary new plot lines being introduced, »
“I’m not afraid of the monsters, monsters are my friends.” You can say that again, Gemma. If you haven’t caught up on Tuesday night’s episode of “Sons of Anarchy” then pop in those Skankenstein films and dust off those white sneakers because there are monster-sized spoilers below. In case you haven’t caught on, “Playing with Monsters” was rife with the aforementioned creatures. From the opening scene, in which Lyla directed that cheesy porn (Red Woody’s first production, apparently), to Gemma reading a monster book to Abel, the theme was punctuated throughout the episode. Even Jax—still hell bent on destroying Lin—dealt with the gang leaders, monsters by their own rights, and pitted clubs against clubs in a bid to take down the house. But let’s back up a bit, shall we? After the messy hit the Sons orchestrated last week, Black and Chinese »

Courtney Love Films 'Soa'
Love, who plays preschool teacher Ms. Harrison on Sons of Anarchy, wore a blue-patterned dress with a tan cardigan for the day of shooting. The scene that the 50-year-old rocker was filming was with series regular Katey Sagal, who plays Gemma Teller on FX's hit biker gang drama starring British export Charlie Hunnam.
On day of filming earlier this month, Love took to Twitter to praise her costar Sagal, calling the TV veteran “gracious.”
Gracious lady @KateySagal so gracious. Thank you so much #Soa #Samcro

While Sons of Anarchy just aired its third episode of the show’s seventh and final season, Love has yet to appear. She’ll make her debut as Jax’s (Hunnam) son Abel’s preschool teacher in “Poor Little Lambs, »
Sons of Anarchy kicked off Tuesday night towards the end of Lyla shooting a scene for Redwoody’s first adult film DVD, which proves tame by comparison to the bloodletting to come.
Sons of Anarchy Recap
Chibs (Tommy Flanagan) and Tig (Kim Coates) are nearly besides themselves, while Jax (Charlie Hunnam) appreciatively calls Lyla, who was working behind the camera, a “genius.” Interrupting the celebration is August Marks (Billy Brown), who has pulled up to the lot outside. Marks has heard about the Chinese shipment getting hit and he’s more or less convinced that Samcro is behind it. He’s not buying that the two muscle men ran the operation, as he knows that the Chinese lost 4 kilos of heroin, not two. Threatening Jax, he says he’ll have no problem killing him or any of the other Sons.

In the Sept. 23 episode of Sons of Anarchy, “Playing with Monsters,” Juice (Theo Rossi) used Unser (Dayton Callie) to get Chibs (Tommy Flanagan) alone to ask him if there was anything he could do to earn his way back into Samcro. Chibs’ response was brutal: “If I were you, I’d get that gun, put it in my mouth, and pull the trigger.” Rossi and Flanagan talked to EW separately about the moment that Rossi says is a game-changer for Juice.
EW: That scene is the first one you’ve had with any of the guys all season, Theo.

Although Samcro has sidestepped their plans to become a legitimate organization, they haven’t left the porn industry behind. “Playing with Monsters” started by showcasing the more “normal” aspects of Jax’s (Charlie Hunnam) life, before throwing viewers directly back into the mayhem. Sons of Anarchy also used Cara Cara as the backdrop for some far less amusing scenes later on in the episode, those of which became the catalyst for a meet-and-greet with the new sheriff in town – an event that took a surprising and altogether confusing turn.
Charming has gone through several main law enforcement agents over the seasons. The writers have never shied away from using and abusing their characters, and those wearing a badge have been consistent targets of this treatment. Unser (Dayton Callie) was pushed out of office, Hale and Roosevelt (and Agent Stahl) were killed, and now the writers are trying their luck with »

Where is the line between justice and revenge? That’s the central question at the heart of Hand of God, a psychological drama starring Golden Globe-winner Ron Perlman as a corrupt judge who suffers a breakdown after his son attempts suicide. It was a role that “completely intimidated” Perlman, who is best known for playing the ruthless patriarch of a motorcycle gang in Sons of Anarchy.
A pilot that can intimidate Ron Perlman? If that doesn’t make you curious to see what it’s about, Hand of God co-stars Dana Delany (Desperate Housewives) as Perlman’s steely wife and Garrett Dillahunt (No Country for Old Men) as a born-again sociopath. The pilot is also directed by renowned filmmaker Marc Forster (Monster’s Ball, World War Z), who joins creator Ben Watkins (Burn Notice), the producers and stars in this behind-the-scenes look.
