Fans of "Orphan Black" still have to wait until April 19 for season two, but show creators John Fawcett and Graeme Manson are releasing some tantalizing hints of what's to come just to torture us a little.
It's 'safe to assume' new clones will be joining the show
Who is the greater threat to the witches - Marie Laveau or one another?
Geez, talk about bad luck. The witches of Salem only had to worry about a bunch of mean-spirited Puritans, but Fiona and her coven are up against so much more. Let's see, there's Joan Ramsey next door, Marie Laveau, Hank, oh, and one another. Really, Hank doesn't have to work very hard to take down witches, as I'm sure that if he waits long enough they'll just pick each other off like so many limping quail during hunting season. I'm assuming they'll get it together, but I have to wonder if they'll see the advantage in working together just as Marie is moving in to rip out their hearts in some kind of gory voodoo ritual.
It's almost time to say goodbye to the 11th Doctor
In advance of the "Doctor Who" Christmas special, BBC America is giving all of us stateside an early gift -- first images from "The Time of the Doctor" (airing Wed. Dec. 25 at 9:00 p.m. ET). Prepare to say goodbye to the 11th Doctor (Matt Smith). Time to make wallpaper, people!
One ominous detail from last week he "didn't like the looks of"
One of the great, under-appreciated joys of watching "Scandal" each week is Cyrus Beene. As played by Jeff Perry, Fitz's long-suffering Chief of Staff lives in a constant state of panic as he frantically cleans up the messes POTUS (Tony Goldwyn) blithely makes as he flip-flops between pining for Olivia (Kerry Washington) and hating her guts. It's a tour-de-force performance that doesn't always take center stage -- at least, not until last week.
How those backstage passes really worked - bad news, groupies (NSFW)
Man, do Melinda and I have all the luck or what? We got yet another amazing guest to sit down with us a few weeks ago (or really, sit down with Melinda, as I was phoning in from Las Vegas). Phil Collen, superstar guitarist for Def Leppard and Manraze (his band with Paul Cook of the Sex Pistols and Simon Laffy of Collens Girl), had a friendly chat with us which was ridiculous, raucous fun. We discussed Manraze's new EP, "I Surrender," Def Leppard's next album, his in-the-works autobiography, his amazing abs, veganism and, yes, those infamous Def Leppard backstage passes.
Warning: Phil's team just happened to pass along the image below, as it was something we discussed during the podcast. Alas, it may not be suitable for your workplace. You're welcome. Here's the rundown:
Alaska's crazy weather grounds planes and sends one man packing
Alaska is not the easiest place in which to live. Actually, it's a pretty damn hard place in which to live, at least if you go by what you see on "LIfe Below Zero: Long Road Home" (Tues. Dec. 3 at 10:00 p.m. ET on Nat Geo). In this exclusive clip, we see why it's really, really important for Sue to get fuel to run her company. As the only emergency airport for 100 miles, fliers are grounded and worse, can't fly in -- and she hasn't gotten a shipment for a week.
The 'Jersey Shore' star says she's fit for a good reason
Remember the old Snooki? The drunken, sloppy, dancing-on-tables Snooki? Well, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi is thin, fit and sober these days. She's doing things like appearing on "Dancing with the Stars" and taking care of her baby boy. But she's still funny, as we can see in this exclusive clip form "Oprah: Where Are They Now?" (Sun. Dec. 8 at 10:00 p.m. ET on OWN). And she has awesome biceps. So there!
'They're either at each other's throats or down each other's throats'
I really wasn't sure what to make of this week's episode of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills." At first, it's all about big, meaningful moments that would likely resonate more if they didn't seem so laden with humble bragging and narcissism. While David Foster receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame is a big deal, it's probably more exciting if you're actually there. Watching Kim shopping for graduation dresses with her kid? Not all that exciting either way.
Girl faces intense teen bullying due to a massive facial tumor
High school isn't easy for most kids, but Sarah Atwell has had it considerably tougher than your average teen. She suffers from a rare disease called neurofibromatosis, which has caused a massive tumor to overtake half of her face. In the one-hour special "The Girl with Half A Face," (premieres Wed. Dec. 18 at 10:00 p.m. ET on Discovery Fit & Health with an encore Wed. Jan. 22 at 10:00 p.m. ET), Sarah invited cameras to follow her (get an idea of what they found in the clip).
Plus, is Kandi's relationship with Todd doomed?
This week on "The Real Housewives of Atlanta," we saw several things I never expected to see. One, Peter gave Apollo advice, and it didn't suck. Two, NeNe gave Cynthia parenting advice, and it also didn't suck. And finally three, fiercely independent Kandi turned into a puddle of spineless goo when confronted with a difficult situation, which did, in fact, suck. But hey, if everyone insisted on behaving themselves with such exceptional reserve, this was going to turn into a Very Special Episode of "Downton Abbey" or something.
