Season 4, Episode 20
Hallelujah, He Is Risen! Last night, the Grey’s Anatomy fans were dealt a horrifyingly horrible blow, which is perhaps why Shonda Rhimes and the Scandal writers chose to spare us. I tried to avoid the Grey’s spoiler because I’m about 2 seasons behind, but alas. I am in mourning too… and at the same time, celebrating the life and resurrection (oh yes, I am blaspheming the bejeezus out of this recap) of Jake Ballard. Thank you Shonda, thank you Scandal. Because, although I basically pronounced him dead last week, I wasn’t ready to let him go. I’ll NEVER let go. Click inside for more!

“It was really the first joke of the evening, and it seemed like an odd choice.”
Yesterday morning we learned of the really disappointing and offensively misogynistic comments made by Avengers stars Chris Evans and Jeremy Renner and today we learn that David Letterman is, too, getting in on the sexist joking. Before the taping of last night’s episode of The Late Show, Letterman came out to warm up the crowd and take a few questions from folks in the crowd. According to a report by The New York Post, a college student asked Letterman what advice he would give to this year’s graduates and his answer was, “Treat a lady like a whore, and a whore like a lady“. This is supposed to be comedy, folks. More »
We get the world we deserve.
Earlier this month we got to see the first promo video for the forthcoming second season of True Detective on HBO and today, courtesy of the show’s official Twitter profile, we get to see a batch of new cast promo images and poster artwork. Click through the gallery presented here to see photos of actors Colin Farrell as Ray Velcoro, Rachel McAdams as Ani Bezzerides, Vince Vaughn as Frank Semyon and Taylor Kitsch as Paul Woodrugh. The tag line of each of the posters is We get the world we deserve, which sounds ominously fitting for a show like True Detective. The new season will premiere on HBO on June 21.

After that unsavory business concerning the comments made by Chris Evans and Jeremy Renner earlier today, I’m ecstatic that I have some very positive comic book / superhero news to share right now. DC Comics has announced that the will unveil a line of products designed for female comic book fans. DC Super Hero Girls will be a line of products that will range from books to TV shows, movies to toys and everything in between. While there is no reason that any person of any gender can enjoy anything comic book-related, it’s refreshing to see that DC Comics has decided to gear a line of products specifically for the large portion of their fanbase that is all too often neglected and taken advantage of. Click below to learn more about this exciting new line of superhero stuff coming our way. More »
"Fisk was just the beginning."
Netflix and Marvel Studios have confirmed that a second season of Marvel’s Daredevil will be released next year in the wake of the success of the show’s first season … which was only released a few weeks ago. I guess I just assumed that we would be getting many seasons of the show but getting official word that season 2 is on the way is great, great news. I devoured the first season as quickly as possible and am looking forward to re-watching the 13 episodes again before the second season comes out in 2016. Click below to learn the known deets about Daredevil‘s renewal and rejoice!! We have a whole new season of DD to look forward to! More »
Even better than 'The Real Thing'
On Sunday night, Christina Aguilera made an appearance at the ACM Awards to perform a song titled Shotgun with Country act Rascal Flatts. Today we get to hear the studio version of the song, which will also be featured during her guest stint on the ABC drama Nashville (previously we heard Xtina‘s rendition of the Nashville theme song The Real Thing). Altho Country Music isn’t really my thing, Xtina does have a penchant for singing the Hell out of a song. Click the embed above to hear Xtina, in character as Jade St. John, sing her beautiful new Country single Shotgun.
“I knew what I had done."
Last week we learned the sad, yet not at all surprising news, that Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards got arrested at the Beverly Hills Hotel for a list of crimes including trespass, police battery and public drunkenness. Today we learn the also not-at-all surprising news that television charlatan and exploiter extraordinaire Dr. Phil McGraw managed to rope Kim into appearing on his show so that he can benefit from her legal woes. Kim, who seems all too happy to allow vampires to prey on her weaknesses, was likely happy to take him up on his offer to appear on his TV show Dr. Phil. Ugh. More »

Back in February we learned the sad news that talk show host Jon Stewart has decided to retire as host of The Daily Show on Comedy Central and in March, it was revealed that comic Trevor Noah has been selected as his replacement. Today, courtesy of Jon himself, we learn the exact date that will be his last as host of The Daily Show. The good news is that we still have many months left to go before he leaves his post as host. The bad news is that now that we have an end date, the countdown has begun for Jon‘s farewell. More »
At the start of this month, we first heard rumblings that Netflix was mulling over the possibility of rebooting the ’90s sitcom Full House with a new season of episodes and today we get official confirmation from Netflix that it’s a done deal — the reboot/sequel/spin-off series Fuller House will debut on Netflix next year. The press release announcement was issued just a short time ago confirming the new series AND confirming reports that Fuller House will focus on the DJ and Stephanie Tanner (Candace Cameron and Jodie Sweetin respectively) and friend Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber) characters with the older castmembers reprising their roles in guest appearances. Not only will actor John Stamos appear as a guest star as Uncle Jesse but he is also producing the new series.

"We are fighting a bigger fight"
In early March, we learned that actress Sarah Michelle Gellar joined her husband Freddie Prinze, Jr. in the cast of the forthcoming second season of the Disney XD animated series Star Wars Rebels which, like the forthcoming Star Wars stand-along sequel/prequel film Star Wars: Rogue One, is set in the time period between Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope. Today we get to check out the first trailer for Star Wars Rebels season 2 which, as you can see above, prominently features Darth Vader. It’s unknown how much of Darth Vader we will see throughout the second season of the show but this trailer makes it appear that he will be the big bad of the entire season (much like The Inquisitor was the big bad during Rebels season 1). If Darth Vader (voiced by James Earl Jones) is really a main character this time around, then I predict the second season of Star Wars Rebels is going to RULE ALL! There has been a LOT of great Star Wars news lately, I’m really loving it all so much.
