Let's be honest for a second... Raph is the best Ninja Turtle and if you don't believe me, check out this action-packed new clip from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows featuring the sai-wielding hero, played by Alan Ritchson (Smallville, Blue Mountain State), taking out the trash the only way he knows how - by kicking ass and taking names! The Ninja Turtles comes into conflict with T.C.R.I. scientist Dr. Baxter Stockman with the association of the Foot Clan and the return of the Shredder, who has hired Stockman to create mutants of their own in the form of Bebop and Rocksteady and an unknown invasion above New York City. To prevent the end of the world, the turtles and their human friends April O'Neil and Vern Fenwick comes to the aid with vigilante Casey Jones.

Who’d have expected CBS to find its new MacGyver at Professor Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters?
Lucas Till, best known for playing Havok in the X-Men movies, has been tapped to star in the network’s upcoming MacGyver reboot pilot, our sister site Deadline reports. He’ll play the titular agent — you know, the one with a knack for turning everyday objects into life-saving tools — originally portrayed by Richard Dean Anderson from 1985 to 1992.
Here’s the original MacGyver in action, just in »
Once upon a time, Spike introduced a show called Blue Mountain State that would later become one of my most re-watched addictions. No matter how many times Thad Castle ran the cookie race or hit Golden Arm with his truck, the Bms Goats hilariously reveled in their asinine, drug-fueled absurdity.
Sure, it’s fratty, brobeans comedy on steroids, but creators Eric Falconer and Chris “Romanski” Romano cover all their bases (or manage all their assignments?) rather well for a show built on relentless immaturity. That was until Spike unceremoniously axed the show after Season 3, and Bms fans were left without Alex Moran’s senior year.
It was then that Falconer, Romanski, and the faithful Goats started a Kickstarter fund to save Blue Mountain State, and they were met with an offering of $1.9 million from their devoted fanbase. This outpouring of generosity is why we now have the newly-released movie, Blue Mountain State: The Rise Of Thadland »

Blue Mountain State: The Rise Of Thadland is a drug-fueled dystopian comedy that would make Rob Gronkowski blush – we’re coming out of the gate guns-blazing on this one! Everything that television audiences love about the hard-partying Mountain Goats makes a return in Lev L. Spiro’s spinoff film, as creators Eric Falconer and Romanski leave a trail of cocaine dust while they unleash epic, Thad-Castle-approved anarchy.
It’s perversely familiar and relentlessly immature (in a good way), which is everything Bms fans have come to expect. We’re gifted an epic, multi-day party that reunites all our favorite characters, but with the calculated exclusion of on-field football antics, something feels slightly amiss. Not enough to detract immensely, just a little more welcomed playmaking to balance…ah, who am I kidding. You’re watching for the sloots and booze, and that’s exactly what you’ll get!
