If you haven't seen "In the Flesh" (the second season premieres Sat. March 10 at 10:00 p.m. ET), the good news is that you can still catch up. The first season is just three episodes, currently available for streaming on the BBC America website, and fans of zombie movies will catch on quickly. What might come as a surprise to horror buffs is that this show takes the idea of zombies a step further -- oh, don't say zombies, by the way. They're people with PDS -- Partially Deceased Syndrome -- who can be treated for their brain-chomping tendencies.
Poor, poor Tamron Hall. The NBC talking head tries to squeeze deep confessions and screaming out of the placid ladies of "My Five Wives: Tell All" (airing Sun. May 11 at 10:00 p.m. on TLC), but she's really in over her head. These wives may get their feelings hurt, they may even be a little jealous, but no way are they going to go all Maury Povich no matter how many time Hall tries to poke them.
The Dyatlov Pass incident sounds like the concept for a pretty fantastic horror movie, but unfortunately it isn't. The grim reality is that on Feb. 2 1959, nine college students hiked up the slopes of the Russian Ural Mountains but never made it out alive. That, of course, is tragic enough. What's more unsettling is that the students’ bodies were found scattered across the campsite in three distinct groups, some partially naked and with injuries including: crushed ribs, a fractured skull, and one hiker whose eyes had been gouged out and tongue removed. Not exactly the stuff you expect from, say, exposure to the elements.
No one has been able to fully explain this horrific scene, but now Discovery Channel and explorer Mike Libecki are giving it a shot with a two-hour special called "Russian Yeti: The Killer Lives" (airing Sun. June 1 at 9:00 p.m.) Okay, we may have lost you at "yeti," but have you got a better idea?
Many of the events that occur on "Sex Sent Me to the ER (Saturdays at 9:00 p.m. on TLC) are worthy of wincing. This week, you'll not only wince, but cross your legs very, very tightly -- especially if you're a guy.
Well, that certainly got real, didn't it?
Still wondering about that portal that opened up on last week's episode of "Once Upon A Time"? Join the club. Co-creators Adam Horowitz and Ed Kitsis aren't telling, but one thing's for sure -- that spooky green vapor that came swirling out of the Wicked Witch when Rumple stabbed her isn't going to earn her a spot in the season finale (Sun. May 11 at 8:00 p.m. ET). I spoke to Horowitz and Kitsis briefly about how this season finale will be different, why they're happy with what transpired in Neverland (even if you're not) and why the two-hour end of the season will feel more like a movie than you might expect.
Remember "Joe Millionaire," the cruel twist on dating show conventions that allowed a fleet of love-hungry women to chase a handsome guy on national TV under the misconception he had a ton of money when the reality was he was mostly broke? Ah, those were the days. FOX is back at it again with "I Wanna Marry 'Harry'" (premiering Tues. May 27 at 8:00 p.m. ET). The show has found a lookalike for the Royal Highness Prince Henry of Wales (aka Prince Harry) in regular guy Matthew Hicks. Now, 12 suckers, I mean American women, get a chance to date him!
Yes, "Romeo and Juliet" features some of the most romantic dialogue Shakespeare ever wrote -- but it's not quite so alluring when you think that Juliet was barely a teenager. With that in mind, you might understand why "Gypsy Sisters" star Nettie Stanley wasn't all that thrilled when her daughter Nukkie wanted to run off with her very first boyfriend, Pookie Small (don't you love these names?). It's "Romeo and Juliet" Gypsy style, with bad clothing and neon pink nails! In this exclusive clip from "My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding" (Thurs. May 8 at 9:00 p.m. ET), get a glimpse of Nukkie and Pookie's rush to the altar.
Ah, Mother's Day, that special time when foo-foo restaurants push overcooked quiche, bacon brined in tears and jumbo-sized helpings of angst (that stuff's free with the meal). No matter what you have planned, you'll want to raise a mimosa to these fine ladies of misbegotten parenting.
Do you ever watch commercials or viral videos featuring real people and wonder, hey, what happened to them? You probably make a mental note to Google whoever it is, but then, hey, shiny object and it's all over. "Outrageous Acts of Science" (Saturdays at 10:00 p.m. on Science Channel) can now put your mind to rest about Sarah Churman.
