This Sunday, CBS’ The Mentalist kicked off its seventh and final season — as well as the official courtship of Patrick Jane and Teresa Lisbon. What’s your initial reaction to the sliiiightly new dynamic?
The hour opened up sweetly, with Lisbon (still on leave in the wake of her engagement/move imploding) suggesting to Jane that maybe he should have a key to her place. She then suggests they keep their romance under wraps at the office, seeing as her thing with Pike went down in flames. (If only everyone had so matter-of-fact a reaction to the news as Cho! »
As CBS’ The Mentalist opens its farewell run this Sunday at 9:30/8:30c, the FBI team has bid adieu to Agent Fisher. A fresh new recruit, though, is joining their ranks — but she’d perhaps be wise to behold Patrick Jane’s mad skills.
As seen in the above sneak peek, Michelle Vega (played by new series regular Josie Loren, Make It or Break It) has barely exchanged her first hellos when Jane tenders an observation about her background. Vega, though, rebuffs his suggestion and instead offers an alternate scenario. Is the noob hiding something, or is this a »

According to a recent report from TV Line, the Mentalist season 7 peeps have casts this stunningly beautiful actress, Josie Loren (left), to play a new FBI agent, named Michelle Vega. Michelle is described as being the newest addition to Patrick Jane’s FBI crew.

When Ian Ziering’s character Fin raised his chainsaw and leaped at the jaws of a flying shark in Syfy’s Sharknado, it no doubt caused all kinds of comments in both viewers’ homes and on their Twitter accounts. But perhaps a few people watching the intentional B-movie wondered what side-splitting remarks the guys from Mystery Science Theater 3000 would have made during that scene and throughout the entire film. Well, wonder no more: a live recording of Sharknado commentary from three former members of MST3K will take place in just two weeks, and further commemorating the shark-filled cyclone flick is a Sharknado Pop! vinyl figure from Funko.
The 4-inch vinyl figure features a shark inside a freak saltwater tornado with its mouth wide open and sharp teeth on full display. Coming soon to online retailers like Amazon (in stock on July 3rd, 2014), this vinyl figure will help usher in »

Robert Rodriguez used to have a hard drive that stored "all my favorite shows and movies and trailers and short films," which he described as his personal TV network.
He wants his new cable channel, the El Rey Network, to be the large-scale equivalent of that. "I wished someone would curate a network where everything you saw, if you were attached to that sensibility, you'd know that you would be taken care of," Rodriguez said Sunday (Jan. 12) at the TCA winter press tour.
El Rey launched in December and has its first original series, "From Dusk Till Dawn," on track to premiere March 11. It's based on the Rodriguez-directed, Quentin Tarantino-written movie of the same name, and Rodriguez wants the series to venture into territory he didn't get to cover in the film.
