Orange Is the New Black: in Case You're Wondering If Poussey Shows Up . . .

Going into Orange Is the New Black season five, it seemed unlikely that we would get to see Poussey (Samira Wiley) again after her tragic demise in the last two episodes of season four. We certainly didn't need her spirit showing up during the seance hosted by Suzanne (Uzo Aduba) in the prison cafeteria, right? That would have been ridiculous. But we were in for a treat when episode six, "Flaming Hot Cheetos, Literally," rolled around. The flashback for this episode focuses on how Taystee (Danielle Brooks) came to be in the foster care system - and her one terrible encounter with her birth mother. At the very end, the flashback jumps to Taystee's first day in prison - and her first meeting with Poussey. They initially bond over their snark about some ditzy white inmates who are chatting in the library, and it quickly becomes obvious they're going to

16 Sneaky Literary References in Netflix's A Series of Unfortunate Events

The first season of Netflix's A Series of Unfortunate Events is littered with Easter eggs that every major fan will excitedly gobble up. However, while most of those allude to the Asoue book series, there is a whole slew of additional Easter eggs that reference other famous works of fiction. Easily missed, these literary references can be found in character names, settings, witty dialogue, and more. Take a look below to see the ones we spotted! The Bad Beginning (Episodes one and two) The last name Baudelaire is a nod to 19th century French poet Charles Baudelaire. His most notable work is a collection of poems entitled Les Fleurs de Mal, or The Flowers of Evil, which considered how to find the beauty in miserable circumstances. Furthermore, one of the poems in the collection is titled "La Beatricé," which could be where the Baudelaire's matriarch got her name. Mr. Poe

TV: Gotham - Season 3 has Cast Mad Hatter

Gotham - Season 3 has announced that Benedict Samuel (The Walking Dead) will be playing Jervis Tetch aka Mad Hatter.  Fox has stated that Tetch will be portrayed as an individual new to Gotham who is searching for his sister, Alice, who disappeared in the city years prior.  The description goes on to describe Tetch as a hypnotist who is on the verge of madness.

These descriptions seem to pay some homage to the comics, while still implementing new aspects of the character's mythos.  In the comics, The Mad Hatter, first appearing in 1948, is a scientist who invents devices to influence, and manipulate, the minds of his victims. The character was created to reflect "The Hatter" from Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.

This news follows other new additions to the cast including Maggie Geha as Poison Ivy, James Carpinello as Mario Falcone, and Jamie Chung as Valerie Vale.  Stay tuned

Fifty Shades of Grey and 9 More Examples of When Fan Fiction Became Blockbusters

Fifty Shades of Grey and 9 More Examples of When Fan Fiction Became Blockbusters
Fan fiction is more prevalent than you might think. With Fifty Shades of Grey being unleashed in theaters Friday, there's no denying that the novel's author, E L James, has brought fan fiction into the spotlight. Originally titled Master of the Universe, James's Twilight fan fiction based on Stephenie Meyer's multi-million dollar franchise first found its home on FanFiction.net. After the racy material within the story forced James to pull it from FanFiction.net, she next hosted Master of the Universe on her own website called 50Shades.com (which now redirects to her official author page).

Coraline and the value of scary family films

As Laika prepares to release The Boxtrolls, we look back at its earlier stop-motion masterpiece, the horror-tinged Coraline...

When it comes to the “behind the sofa” entertainment of their youth, older readers will have plenty to talk about, from the Child Catcher to the Daleks. For kids, the splashes of horror in otherwise family friendly films are what teach them how not to be scared. In recent years, we've seen an even greater resurgence of the horror genre in animated movies.

Features like Frankenweenie and Hotel Transylvania evoked the tropes of classic horror to either pastiche or parody expectations, but we'd go so far as to say that Laika has been stridently leading the charge for horror movies aimed explicitly at a family audience. The Boxtrolls is the third stop-motion feature from the studio, following 2012's zombie movie ParaNorman and 2009's Coraline, which is probably the scariest family film of this century.

The Blood Stream: Alice in Murderland

The Blood Stream mines the Internet for horror gold so you don’t have to, delivering streamable horror titles never before featured on Dread Central. Occasionally I’ll dredge up something good, maybe even great. To find those gems, I’ll have to sift through a lot of breathtakingly bad cinema. Enjoy!

This week my choice came down to two movies directed by a prolific no-budget auteur named Dennis Devine: Don’t Look in the Cellar and Alice in Murderland. (Fun fact: In 2000 Devine directed a movie called Bloodstream. Full circle!) Knowing both movies would likely be nigh unwatchable, I decided to choose whichever was shorter. As a result, I won’t be looking in the cellar this week. At 87 minutes it's a full minute longer than Alice and who has time for that?

The story, insofar as it's coherent, is this: A seven-woman sorority decides to throw a

Johnny Depp's Mad Hatter Gets a Father in Mark Rylance

Mark Rylance has joined the cast of Walt Disney Pictures' Alice in Wonderland sequel, Through the Looking Glass . Variety reports that the actor, best known for his stage work, will play the father of Johnny Depp's Mad Hatter in director James Bobin's followup to Tim Burton's 2010 box office hit. The original film, itself a sequel of sorts to Carroll's 19th century texts, "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" and "Through the Looking-Glass," starred Mia Wasikowska alongside Depp, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, Crispin Glover, Matt Lucas, Alan Rickman, Stephen Fry, Michael Sheen, Timothy Spall, Christopher Lee, Paul Whitehouse and Barbara Windsor and grossed more than a billion dollars at the worldwide box office. Linda Woolverton, who scripted the...

The original film, itself a sequel of sorts to Carroll's 19th century texts, "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" and "Through the Looking-Glass," was directed by Tim Burton and starred Johnny Depp alongside Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, Crispin Glover, Matt Lucas, Mia Wasikowska, Alan Rickman, Stephen Fry, Michael Sheen, Timothy Spall, Christopher Lee, Paul Whitehouse and Barbara Windsor and grossed more than a billion dollars at the worldwide box office.

Seth Gordon Seduced By Queen Of Hearts

Seth Gordon is racking up the future projects this week. Having just been attached to direct the long-in-the-works Uncharted movie, he's now also developing Queen Of Hearts from the Black List debut screenplay by Stephanie Shannon.The title obviously refers to Lewis Carroll and Alice's Adventures In Wonderland, but Queen Of Hearts is more along the lines of Marc Forster's 2004 film Finding Neverland (centered on Peter Pan's J. M. Barrie) than those of Tim Burton's Alice and its incoming sequel by James Bobin.This story will centre on Lewis Carroll - a pen-name for Charles Dodgson - and the "passionate affair" that leaves him broken-hearted and leads him to write his most famous work.From that description it seems unlikely that the relationship in focus is that of Dodgson and Alice Liddell, so we'd assume his affair in the story is with Alice's mother Lorina, with whom he's known to have been close.

'Once Upon a Time in Wonderland' premiere: Are you down the rabbit hole?

ABC premiered "Once Upon a Time in Wonderland" Thursday (Oct. 10), a spinoff  of its popular family program "Once Upon a Time." This iteration takes place in pre-curse Wonderland, though like its predecessor, the show is full of mash-ups and not strictly telling the Lewis Carroll story with which you may or may not be familiar.

To clarify something we've seen some confusion about -- the female villain in "Ouat in Wonderland" is the Red Queen (Emma Rigby, pictured above), not to be confused with the Queen of Hearts, who we all know is Cora, Regina's mother. In Carroll's books, the Queen of Hearts is from "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" and the Red Queen is from "Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There."

You may have noticed the Red Queen's chess piece palace (which is awesome) -- that's because she is the Red Queen from a chess game. Looking-Glass Land

'Once Upon a Time in Wonderland' review: Sophie Lowe shines in ABC's promising spinoff

If you're a devotee of the works of Lewis Carroll, "Once Upon a Time in Wonderland" will probably make you cringe more than once. If, however, you're a fan of the original "Once Upon a Time" -- and of smart, competent female heroes -- you'll probably find a good deal to like in ABC's new series.

The story of a grown-up Alice (Sophie Lowe), who has been haunted by her memories of Wonderland ever since visiting as a little girl, features sumptuous visuals and a couple of strong central performances from Lowe and Michael Socha as the Knave of Hearts. It's a little weaker on the villainous side of things, unfortunately, and its central romance is less than swoon-inducing at the outset. All the better to create a triangle, perhaps.

"Wonderland" isn't a spinoff of "Ouat" per se, at least not in the way we usually think of them. "Once

'Once Upon a Time in Wonderland' borrows from 'Alice' as well as 'Aladdin'

As author George R. R. Martin observed, "The greatest fools are oftentimes more clever than the men who laugh at them."

To believe in something, to stand for something, can make a man look like a fool to skeptics and sophisticates, but that doesn't worry Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz, creators of the hit ABC fairy-tale drama "Once Upon a Time" and now its spinoff, "Once Upon a Time in Wonderland," premiering Thursday, Oct. 10.

In a dark time, Kitsis and Horowitz have staked their claim in the light.

"When we started to do 'Once,' " he tells Zap2it, "[we learned that] everything that's cool in the world is something you have to s*** on. It's a lot cooler to say you hate something than to say you're for something. Everything was bleak and dark. Adam and I wanted to write a show that gave us the feeling we did when Charlie got
