NCIS: Los Angeles Season 1 Episode 17 Review: "Full Throttle"

If you're a car guy, or girl, last night's NCIS: Los Angeles was right up your alley. If you're not, fortunately, there was still plenty of lighter fare to keep you entertained.

As we talked about in our NCIS review earlier, sometimes it's best when the mystery only comprises a portion of the episode, allowing the characters to carry the rest.

This was certainly true Tuesday on NCIS: La, and hopefully is a sign of things to come. Check out our recap for the basic plot, then read our review of "Full Throttle" ...

The team investigates the death of James Rush, a young Naval officer killed when his car suddenly explodes in an apparent sabotage attempt during an illegal street race.

Racing To The Scene: Kensi and Callen are on the case.

However, we learn that the suspected rival was Rush’s girlfriend, who raced under a male persona. Suspicious,

What Robin Almost Looked Like in Tim Burton's Batman Returns

What Robin Almost Looked Like in Tim Burton's Batman Returns
Tim Burton almost got to play with Robin. But he changed his mind and ditched that concept for his 1992 sequel Batman Returns. The movie was already stuffed with perhaps one too many characters, with the follow-up to 1989's blockbuster hit Batman introducing Penguin and Catwoman. While we wouldn't see Robin until 1995's Batman Forever, we now have an idea of what Tim Burton's Robin would have looked like.

Robin is an elusive character. When 1989's Batman was being produced, comic book fans warned that the character was too goofy for such a serious take on the material. And he was left on the sidelines. But Tim Burton toyed with introducing the character in his next movie. And thanks to Bart Sears Twitter, we have an idea what that may have looked like.

The movie brought Michael Keaton back as the caped crusader, and cast high profile actors Michelle Pfeiffer

The Talk Has Met With More Than 400 Potential New Hosts to Fill Aisha Tyler's Shoes

  • BuzzSugar
The hunt for a new host to join The Talk is heating up. Aisha Tyler's emotional exit from the CBS daytime series on Aug. 4 left an open spot at the table, and it's one that's not easy to fill. As a journalist who's stopped by the show as one of its Top Talkers more than a dozen times in recent years, I can assure you that the cast's affection for - and chemistry with - each other continues when the camera is not rolling. With that in mind, the search for a fifth person to join the fold is a task everyone involved in is taking seriously - so seriously, in fact, that The Talk will not be announcing a new host right away when the show's eighth season debuts on Sept. 11. Worth the Wait I joined hosts Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne, and Sheryl Underwood for lunch

Men In Black: how Chris O’Donnell was dissuaded from taking a lead role

Simon Brew Jul 5, 2017

Will Smith starred in Men In Black - but director Barry Sonnenfeld had to put Chris O'Donnell off the movie first...

The Men In Black trilogy – whether you like them or not – have given Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones a trio of big hit movies (appreciating Jones’ smaller role in the most recent movie). Furthermore, they’re also the bigger commercial successes of director Barry Sonnenfeld’s career.

In a new chat with The Huffington Post, however, Sonnenfeld has revealed that Chris O’Donnell – then off the back of Batman Forever – was the studio’s choice for one of the two lead roles. Sonnenfeld wanted Will Smith, the studio had an idea of pairing Chris O’Donnell with Clint Eastwood.

Steven Spielberg, who executive produced Men In Black, asked Sonnenfeld to try and close the deal with O’Donnell. And Sonnenfeld has now revealed that Spielberg

'The Doll' with Ossi Oswalda and Hermann Thimig: Early Ernst Lubitsch satirical fantasy starring 'the German Mary Pickford' has similar premise to that of the 1925 Buster Keaton comedy 'Seven Chances.'

The set is created by cut-out figures that gradually come to life; then even more cleverly, they commence the fast-paced action. It all begins when a shy, confirmed bachelor, Lancelot (Hermann Thimig), is ordered by his rich uncle (Max Kronert), the Baron von Chanterelle, to marry for a large sum of money. As to be expected, mayhem ensues. Lancelot is forced to flee from the hordes of eligible maidens, eventually

Exclusive: 'Batman & Robin' 20 Years Later -- Alicia Silverstone & Chris O'Donnell Look Back

Exclusive: 'Batman & Robin' 20 Years Later -- Alicia Silverstone & Chris O'Donnell Look Back
It's been two decades since George Clooney donned Batman's cape and cowl to fight crime alongside Alicia Silverstone and Chris O'Donnell in director Joel Schumacher's Batman & Robin.

In honor of the film's 20th anniversary on Tuesday, Et's Denny Directo sat down with Silverstone and O'Donnell, who reflected on the cult classic and the film's famously over-the-top costumes.

"They made this like, plaster body mold of me and my entire face and every inch of my body," recounted O'Donnell, who starred as Robin, Batman's crime fighting partner. "Just watching the process of them build this costume and then all of a sudden show up on set one day-- when it was finished -- was like, 'Oh my God, I can't believe I'm going to put that on and be a superhero.'"
