'Once Upon A Time''s Wicked Witch Rebecca Mader talks up being green

'It's really delicious when we go toe-to-toe' she says of Regina

After the long slog "Once Upon A Time" took through a grim and colorless Neverland (sorry, Peter Pan, but you kind of creeped us out), the show's latest Big Bad has been a delicious and welcome change of direction. Played by Rebecca Mader (Charlotte Lewis on "Lost"), the Wicked Witch/Zelena has emerged as a villain we love to hate -- and more importantly, a villain who just might be a worthy adversary for Regina, the Evil Queen (Lana Parrilla). In real life, Mader couldn't be more charming. We talked about being green, going "toe-to-toe" with Parrilla, and why it's fun to play off of a dot instead of a monkey.

The new 'Orphan Black' trailer reveals season two twists

Rachel has evil plans for Cosima and Sarah

It's time for another season two trailer from "Orphan Black," and I'm already feeling worried for our intrepid clones. The stakes are obviously higher in season two, plus we see that things aren't great (at least in one moment) for Sarah and Paul. Why? Oh, because she decks the guy. That happens.

CulturePop No. 43 - 'Def Leppard''s Joe Elliott on One Direction, KISS, more

How the band separated good girls from bad girls

Here's the second part of our awesome interview with Def Leppard singer Joe Elliott -- and it's just as fascinating (and longer, natch) than the first. I recommend listening to part one, then part two. But either way, we had fun and hope you will, too! Here's the rundown:

10 of the greatest supernatural comedies ever

Are these at the top of your list?

While "supernatural comedy" sounds like a mash-up of things that don't naturally go together, like fish and peanut butter (please don't inform me of any exceptions to the rule because ick), some of our favorite shows ever have a little bit of one and a lot of the other and we wouldn't have it any other way. After all, a humorless "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" would just make us sad. This girl has to kill vampires constantly and has post-traumatic stress and no sense of humor or a penchant for witty banter? How can the world be so cruel? See?

The abandoned mine is dangerous, but the risk may be worth it

This Friday is the season finale of "Game of Stones" (airing April 4 at 10:00 p.m. on Discovery), and it's good news (maybe) for our intrepid miners. After getting duped during a deal for Blue Turk, Don and the Gem Guys salvage their botched mission by trekking into the foothills of Turkey. While the bad news is that they face an abandoned mine that could collapse at any time, the good news is that it may totally be worth it. In this exclusive clip, sees what happens when they stumble upon what looks (at  least, to the untrained eye) like a bunch of shiny rock.

Octavia Spencer to tackle story of real-life race riot for OWN miniseries

The Oscar winner will play a journalist facing 'demons of her past'

Let no one accuse Oprah Winfrey of letting her OWN channel become the unofficial Tyler Perry network. Now comes word that OWN is developing "Tulsa" (working title), a two-night miniseries set to star Oscar winner Octavia Spencer ("The Help"). The miniseries will tell the story of the largest race riot in U.S. history, during which 300 people are believed to have been murdered. With Spencer's name above the title, we can't help but think this is sure to be Emmy Awards bait.

Interview: 'The Originals' Daniel Gillies talks Hayley, Klaus and war

He knows what makes Elijah tick - but he isn't saying

Just like his character Elijah (previously of "The Vampire Diaries" and currently of "The Originals," both on The CW), Daniel Gillies is elegant, restrained and just a little mysterious. When I spoke to him at PaleyFest, I was curious to get his take on whether Elijah would ever take a chance on Hayley. Instead, we somehow ended up talking about the motivations he believes drive Elijah -- not that he was going to reveal them. That's so Elijah, isn't it?

Exclusive clip: Lagertha sticks up for her ex on 'Vikings'

We don't predict great things for her second marriage

Man, it was not easy being a Viking woman. Lagertha is one fierce mother (literally), and while she can kick ass on the battlefield, her new husband Sigvard has no problem hitting her when he doesn't like what she has to say. That doesn't stop her from standing up to him in this exclusive clip from this week's episode (airing Thurs. April 3 at 10:00 p.m. on History).
