‘Orphan Black’ Cast and Crew Share 14 Secrets of the Sestrahood — PaleyFest 2017
The Clone Club has gone Hollywood. (Okay, maybe only Crystal did.)
The cast and creators of “Orphan Black” hit PaleyFest on Thursday night at Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre for its first ever panel to look back on the past four seasons and hint at the fifth and final season. The night kicked off with more than just a hint though. The Paley audience was given an exclusive early screening of the Season 5 premiere.
It was the best 44 minutes of Helena scarfing down food that we’ve ever seen. We’re kidding, of course, but we’d totally watch that. In the interests of not spoiling the fifth season, we’ll just say that the premiere picks up where Season 4 left off. When last we left the sestras, Rachel (Tatiana Maslany) was »

WGA “Broke Off Negotiations,” Producers Claim As Strike Vote Looms
One day before negotiations originally were scheduled to end between the WGA and AMPTP, the labor tension in Hollywood is at a 10-year high. As the scribes now confirm Deadline’s exclusive of earlier today that a strike-authorization vote has been called, the producers shot back this evening with claims of bad faith from the other side of the table. “The WGA broke off negotiations at an early stage in the process in order to secure a strike vote rather than directing its… »
Darth Atroxa Cosplay from Star Wars: The Old Republic
Yesterday I shared a pretty awesome gallery of hand-made smoking pipes and one of them took the form of Darth Maul. Maul made a nice little return to media this week as he took on Obi-Wan in Star Wars Rebels on Disney Xd. I mentioned how if there was anything good that came out of the Phantom Menace that it was Darth Maul. My one guess as to why the cosplay I’m about to show you popped up this week is because of Maul’s emergence on Disney. Otherwise I don’t have an explanation. This is Darth Artroxa (who should obviously

Heavy Metal Cover of ‘Johnny B. Goode’ by Leo Moracchioli Completely Owns
It’s hard to believe that it’s already been a week since legendary guitar player and singer Chuck Berry died. During the past week musicians have been paying tribute to Berry and creating their own versions of some of his greatest hits. Last week I posted one of the first tribute songs which was done by Green Day. Perhaps one of the greatest cover tributes was uploaded to Youtube today by none other than musician Leo Moracchioli. For those that don’t know him Leo Moracchioli is from Norway and is most known for doing crazy music covers on Youtube channel called

Sleepy Hollow Ep Teases Henry's Role in Finale, Crane's 'Ultimate Challenge'
Will the real Henry Parrish please stand up?
John Noble made his heralded (second) return to Sleepy Hollow Friday, but not quite as his usual alter ego, Henry Parrish. Instead, the Fringe vet showed up as an amalgam of Ichabod’s memories of him — preserved in the glass jar at The Vault since the despair demon incident — mixed with the blood of the Horseman of War.
Who happened to be Ichabod at the time. (Don’t worry: The Revolutionary War captain was back to his normal self by the end of the episode.)

Billions’ Bobby Axelrod Gives Incredibly Real and Motivational Advice for Entrepreneurs
If you’re not watching the show Billions then I understand you. Seriously, I do. The show isn’t for everyone. In fact sometimes it goes way above people’s heads including my own. However, I think it’s just “commercial” enough where each and every episode you’re going to learn some really valuable life lessons. While the show does an excellent job portraying the hedge fund world and sordid business of governing the financial sector, you get some amazing pearls of wisdom. Perhaps the greatest pearls come from lead character Bobby Axelrod (Damien Lewis) himself. In an amazing scene with his wife Lara,

That Time Darth Vader Hit the Closing Bell on Wall Street
So yeah, there was actually a time that Darth Vader and some red looking Stormtroops attending the closing bell on Wall Street. If you’re from another country how in the hell can you take us seriously with this stuff going on? A buddy of mine just posted this on Facebook and it bears repeating. Do you think that terrorist groups use the televised Americans all clapping, smiling, and cheering loudly at the closing bell of Wall Street every day as a recruiting tool to show that the infidels worship money? I’m definitely not anti-Wall Street, but some days those people

The Originals Recap: The Escape Klaus
Rescuing Klaus proved a little trickier — and a lot bloodier — than expected on Friday’s The Originals.
VideosThe Originals Season 4 Extended Trailer (Finally) Reunites Klaus and Hope

Naturally, Rebekah was selected to distract Marcel while the others attempted to free Klaus, a reunion that led to some painful exchanges, including, “I was a fool for loving you.” (Ouch! … I mean, it’s true, but still. »

Epic battles tend to have heartbreaking casualties, and the shootout that ended this week’s Grimm was no exception: The episode’s final moments saw an attack at the precinct that left two of Portland’s finest — Hank and Wu — dead.

RuPaul's Drag Race Season 9: Did You Go Gaga For Those Premiere Twists?
RuPaul’s Drag Race returned for its ninth season Friday (now on VH1!), introducing fans to a sickening lineup of 13 new queens — plus one you might recognize.
I say you “might” recognize her because, honestly, I’m not sure who she is. Her arrival was saved for the final minute of the episode, and before her face was revealed, we were given a big, fat “To Be Continued.”
With that 14th contestant still a question mark, let’s talk about the queens we did meet in this week’s premiere, »
