‘The Originals’ Season Finale Ratings Even With 2016, ‘Wwyd?’ Returns Steady
The notion of "family forever" had a bite taken out of it on the Season 4 finale of The Originals (0.3/1) last night. Add to that some blood chugging, a tomb full of evil, a skull circle, a plan to defeat enemy The Hollow, and notions of redemption and The Vampire Diaries spinoff left little on the table on a mainly encore filled Friday. Dead even with its June 16 results, "The Feast of All Sinners" episode of the renewed Originals was also exactly the same among adults… »
Young and the Restless Spoilers: Could Adam Come Back?
Young and the Restless fans are still wondering what might happen with Adam Newman. Is he dead, alive, hiding, missing, what? There is no answer right now. We hear this and that and the other, and we have no idea if he is around or if he is missing – and we have no idea if there is a chance he could be able to come back. What we do know is Victor is very adamant that he wants Chloe alive and well within his reach, and we suspect it’s because he knows she knows something. If Adam comes back

What to Expect from My Mother and Other Strangers
Given its name, it should come as no surprise to learn that My Mother and Other Strangers is a rather curious mix of the exotic as well as the familiar. In brief, it is set in Northern Ireland during the Second World War when hundreds of thousands of Us soldiers flooded into the region in preparation for their participation on the Western Front. However, it is not focused on those historic events but rather the people who lived through them. In particular, My Mother and Other Strangers is focused on Rose and Michael Coyne as well as their three children,

Performer of the Week: Gillian Anderson
The Performer | Gillian Anderson
The Show | American Gods
The Episode | “Come to Jesus“ (June 18)
The Performance | Is there anything that livens up an American Gods scene more than the captivating, off-kilter addition of Gillian Anderson’s Media? We think not, especially given the X-Files alum’s highly entertaining performance in Sunday’s Season 1 finale.
When Media showed up as Judy Garland in her Easter Parade attire, all doe-eyed and delicate, Anderson was the picture of turn-of-the-century femininity. And we marveled, in part because she so thoroughly wrapped the New God in this old-school persona and in part because Anderson-as-Media-as-Garland »

Five Movies You Have to See Before They Leave Netflix in July
Batman – With Adam West’s passing still fresh in our cultural memory, it seems almost cruel to take down this endearing testament to his most iconic role. But business is business, I guess. They can’t just leave it up there for posterity. Hitting theaters only two months after the last episode of the 1966’s series’ first season aired, it helped cement West’s Batman as a cultural milestone. The plot, which seems silly even by the 1960’s standards, sees the Joker the Penguin, the Riddler and Catwoman teaming up to use a dehydration ray to put down the dynamic duo and

A painful double date on Monday’s Stitchers (Freeform, 9/8c) will make jumping into dead people’s brains seem like a cakewalk.
TVLine has an exclusive clip from the episode, which finds Camille and Amanda enjoying a flirty night in — until their guests, Linus and Ivy, arrive to ruin their fun. Or to create a totally different type of fun, I’m not ready to jump to conclusions just yet.

‘Game of Thrones’ to ‘Twin Peaks’: Here’s Why Your Favorite Quirky Characters Wear Eyepatches
TV is full of characters that wear eyepatches for various reasons, and sometimes it’s simply to stand out among a huge cast.
When it comes to dramas like “Twin Peaks” or genre series like “Game of Thrones” or “The Walking Dead,” massive casts of characters allow for variety, whether it’s the run-of-the-mill diner waitress or the sword-swinging knight or the eyepatch-wearing neighbor.

At the most basic level, an eyepatch sets a character apart, giving them a dangerous, rakish or even quirky air. Beloved by stereotypical pirates, the eyepatch has also been used to indicate that someone is a seafaring person.
But often, the eyepatch is used to signify some sort of trauma in the past. It’s also an easy way for a character to visibly show a badge of suffering without »

Five Things We Know About Sony’s ‘Venom’
No matter what anybody says about this, it looks like Sony’s definitely going through with their plans for a Spider-Man cinematic universe that perplexingly won’t star Spider-Man. The production is starting to come together, the release date is set, and now we have nothing to do but sit back and see just how momentously titanic a failure it’ll turn out to be. I guess they can pull it off – in an “everything’s technically possible” sort of way – but it’s not likely, especially considering their historic track record with this particular franchise. Don’t believe me? Consider what we know
