Somebody must’ve declared Thursday fight night, because almost everybody was ready to put up their (metaphorical) dukes in this week’s Grey’s Anatomy. While Alex and Miranda prepared to wage the Battle of the Board Seat, Owen made the mistake of going all “General Patton” on Callie — in her research lab, no less! — and Mer… Let’s just say that she would have sooner chopped down her family tree than add a branch to it for Maggie. Here’s how “Got to Be Real” shook out…
Twisted Sister | “Your junk’s spectacular,” Mer told Alex upon interrupting his shower. »
With a show as loaded with lazy cop tropes as "The Mysteries of Laura," it's tempting to bust out a few TV critic clichés in kind. Maybe I could suggest that the series — whose promos all suggest that the chief mystery is how in the world a woman could possibly be both a cop and a mom(*) at the same time — is in the running for the best new fall show of 1984. (*) Linda Holmes of NPR has dubbed the show "CopMom, MomCop," and her catchy alternate theme song is probably a better critique of the show than the one you're reading here. But that would be unfair to 1984, whose best new fall show was "The Cosby Show." More importantly, that season led to the first Outstanding Drama Series Emmy win for "Cagney & Lacey," a cop show that dealt with all sorts of questions about the life of a female police »

From the 1980s to the 21st century, Jamie takes us on a guided tour of the most frustrating videogames he's encountered so far...
I want to take you on a journey through a few decades of game-playing frustration, name-checking the titles that have most made me want to kick a sleeping puppy in the face: games that only a heart surgeon would have the dexterity and patience to complete; games so disgustingly unfair and evil that even Satan beholds their exquisitely cruel construction with envy, kicking himself that he didn’t think of them first.
(Disclaimer: no actual puppies were harmed in the making of this article)
Now for another couple of disclaimers: pointless I know, because nobody actually reads these introductions, right? I believe it’s traditional to skip the rest of this article and head to the comments’ section below filled with boundless and unquenchable rage. (If you »
We don't know a lot about the anthology Hellevator Man aside from the titles of two of its segments: "It's Hell Getting Old" from Patrick Rea (see more here) and "Future Executive" from Vincent J. Guastini, which we have an exclusive early look at right here.
"Future Executive" stars Andy Mackenzie (Sushi Girl, "Bite Me") and is the latest from Blanc/Biehn Productions. Below are several behind-the-scenes stills from the set of "Future Executive" along with a video from Bbp.
We should have more for you soon from the other Hellevator Man segments so stay tuned!

Animated horror films are few and far between, but occasionally someone gets a great idea for one – see Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust - that makes us remember the genre can be more than just Alvin And the Chipmunks Meet whichever movie monster happens to need a paycheck at the time. It’s too early to say whether Malevolent is going to be one of those diamonds in the rough – but initial information about the pic is promising.
Today, we’ve learned that Homeland actress Morena Baccarin has signed on to lend her voice to the lead villain in the film. Malevolent centers on a “young woman (Dani Lennon) who must defeat her powerful, evil father in order to save herself and her siblings.” It was scripted by Jim Cirile and Tanya C. Klein (Liberator), and directed by Jason Axinn (Bite Me).

As we've seen in movies like Twilight and Near Dark, choosing to embark on an intimate relationship with a vampire isn't exactly the easiest path to take in life. There's that whole thing about them having an insatiable appetite for your blood, and as if that wasn't bad enough, you've gotta deal with getting old and crusty, while they stay the same age forever.
That said, there are advantages to having a vampire lover. In the mood to crack open a cold one, but you don't have a bottle opener handy? Have no fear, because your vampire's teeth can do the trick better than any bottle opener ever could. Okay, so the negatives far outweigh the positives, but you get what I'm trying to say here.
Thanks to this handy 'Bite Me' bottle opener keychain, you get all the positives without any of the negatives. These bottle-opening teeth »

Couple things right out of the gate, Dance Moms nation. Today’s recap will be screen-capture-free, because the events of its last twenty minutes are currently a matter of litigation in the New York City courts, so no press screeners were made available. So much the better if you ask me. There’s not much that happened this evening that I’d care to commemorate in pictures or in words. In light of the weekend’s news of Maryen Lorrain Miller’s death, I was really hoping we might have something, anything I could write positively about — even though I knew better from the … Continue reading →

The CW drama is running an attack ad against the ABC Family hit — but ‘A’ isn’t going down without a fight. Which show will You watch live tonight?
If you’re anything like me, you’ve been dreading this day for weeks. Beginning tonight, two of my favorite shows — ABC Family’s Pretty Little Liars and The CW’s The Originals – will both be broadcast at 8 p.m. Et, a phenomenon that hasn’t occurred since Pll‘s Halloween episode aired in Oct. 2013.
And to make matters worse, both shows are quite literally fighting for our attention.
‘The Originals’ Slams ‘Pretty Little Liars’: Change The Channel!
The battle lines were first drawn when The CW decided to run an ad on ABC Family during tonight’s episode of Pretty Little Liars, suggesting that viewers change the channel and watch The Originals, instead.

Is there a feud starting Tuesday nights at 8 p.m.?
New CW drama "The Originals" launched a pre-emptive strike Tuesday (Jan. 14), as it was revealed that the show is airing a commercial on ABC Family during "Pretty Little Liars" that tells viewers who are sick of "A" and his/her antics to change the channel to "The Originals."
"Pll's" resident villain "A" has responded with the above photo featuring one of its patented "A" messages: "Bite me, #LiarsUnite, #UnOriginal."
Get it? Because "The Originals" is about vampires?
The next 10 weeks will mark the first time the two young adult dramas will air head-to-head for any length of time. They previously shared one common airing during "Pretty Little Liars" 2013 Halloween episode, which saw "Pll" beat the vampire drama by almost a million viewers.
Which show will you be watching tonight at 8 p.m. Et/Pt? »
