Recap: 'True Blood' - 'Karma'

With the clock running out, the show discovers a possible loophole

Tonight’s episode brings Will Yun Lee, formerly of “Witchblade” and the ill-fated “Bionic Woman” reboot, on board as Katsurou “Mr. Gus, Jr.” Ryouichi. He’s the son of the CEO of the Yokonomo Corporation and the head of its North American division. The Yakuza forces capture Eric and Pam in mid-rampage and deliver them to Gus Jr., who shares Eric’s vengeful hatred of Sarah Newlin; after all, by tainting the Tru Blood supply and creating the Hep-V epidemic, she bankrupted his company. The vampire and the businessman-gangster come to an agreement to share information and split the work: Eric, who knows that Sarah has an infected vampire sister living in Dallas, will kill her, and Mr. Gus will take the body. I would assume that, after a quick stop at the taxidermist, he’d have the corpse stuffed and mounted in the lobby of the Yokonomo corporate headquarters, as a warning to others. But we just found out from “The Bridge” that even in Texas, this sort of thing don’t fly.

Helen Mirren explains the importance of a light touch in 'The Hundred-Foot Journey'

Plus: Why location shooting in the south of France was so important

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — In Lasse Hallström's latest film, "The Hundred-Foot Journey," Oscar-winning actress Helen Mirren was given the opportunity to play a very forthright, proud restauranteur in the south of France. It's a character that plays well to her strengths and offers a striking foil to Manish Dayal's Indian chef-in-training, Hassan.

Guillermo del Toro brings 'The Strain' to Comic-Con: Live-Blog

Guillermo del Toro, Carlton Cuse and company lead the last Hall H panel of Comic-Con 2014

After live-blogs for "Sons of Anarchy" and "The Following," it's time for the final Hall H panel of Comic-Con 2014.

It's Guillermo del Toro and company taking the stage for FX's "The Strain," which will be preceded by a screening on Sunday (July 27) night's episode, which was one of my favorites so far, featuring some jaw-droopingly gross moments, as well as a hilarious sequence for Corey Stoll's wig.

Apparently this is the first TV show ever to be paneled in Hall H during its first season.

Who knew?

Well, we all survived "The Following," which wasn't a bad panel, even if the crowd ran out of questions very early. My full "Following" live-blog is here.

'Mad Max: Fury Road' trailer finds Tom Hardy in a dusty post-apocalyptic hell

Well hot damn

Before I even got out of bed this morning, I was watching the "Mad Max: Fury Road" trailer. How do you like THEM apples, Hall H? But seriously, it seems Warner Bros.' presentation of materials for George Miller's upcoming film won the day at Comic-Con yesterday despite the presence of DC Comics and Marvel Studios. Hard to do, but a nice surprise, nevertheless, and today WB has mercifully made the trailer available to us non-Coners.

Ra's al Ghul is coming to 'Arrow' and EP Marc Guggenheim offers details

Check out the DC Comics supervillain in an 'Arrow' Season 3 trailer

The "Arrow" Season 3 tease that played at Saturday's (July 27) Warner Bros. Television Presents a Night of DC Entertainment in Hall H was identical to the teaser that played before the Ballroom 20 panel on Friday.

Well, not in ALL ways. 

As Night of DC Entertainment MC Stephen Amell teased easier, the only difference in the sizzle reel was the last 15 seconds.

And what a difference those 15 seconds made, as they set up this "Arrow" season's big DC Comics' addition, noted League of Assassins frontman Ra's al Ghul, a character best known to the widest audience from Liam Neeson's performance in "Batman Begins." The character was name-dropped repeatedly last season on "Arrow" and his daughter Nyssa made several appearances tied to the origin story of Sara Lance as Black Canary.

'Avengers: Age Of Ultron' footage is playful and badass all at once

There are no strings on the creepiest Marvel movie bad guy yet

The Marvel panel really only focused on the two 2015 releases this time, and that's fine. It gave them time to have all of the Avengers come out and discuss the movie and play around and be super charming, because they are.

It also meant that they cut a longer than average sizzle reel to show the crowd. They're still working on the movie, but they're pretty far into the process at this point, so what they had to show us was surprisingly finished, and it was very impressive. I visited the London sets for the film, and the first scene they showed was shot on one of the most impressive sets I've ever seen, a three-story completely accurate version of The Avengers Tower, complete with labs for Tony and Bruce and a downstairs that leads to a Quinjet landing pad. Wildly impressive.
