'The Bachelorette' Season 10, The Men Tell All Recap: TV Ultrasounds, Racism Cured Via Cookie Frosting

'The Bachelorette' Season 10, The Men Tell All Recap: TV Ultraso
In proud Bachelorette tradition, it's time to postpone the finale everyone's dying to see (although it would take almost no effort to google "Andi Dorfman" and figure out which guy she picked- the finale was taped weeks ago) for a block of pure, uncut filler.

Yes, it's "The Men Tell All," which is another of those awkward moments when Chris Harrison grinds the show to a halt to talk things through with the Bachelor or Bachelorette. Only, it's two hours long, it continually cuts to a crowd of emotion-hungry women (plus two dudes, for diversity quotas), and it ends with blooper bonus footage...

'Teen Wolf' Recap: Lacrosse & Lycanthropy

Teen Wolf
Here's a PSA to supernatural creatures: stay away from Beacon Hills. And Beacon County. There have been werewolf attacks, kanima paralysis, packs of Alphas, crazy maybe-bisexual Druids, nogitsunes, and now a freaking Deadpool of assassins trying to kill anyone for a buck. Out of the 30,000 people who live in Beacon Hills, I recommend abandoning ship.

Like this blond werewolf chick who I desperately rooted to stay alive. I know it was impossible for her to stay alive because she appeared before the credits, but still. She fought off the impossibly tiny little assassin named Violet before i...

Kanye West Compares Being A Celebrity To The Civil Rights Movement

July 22nd, 2014 11:20am EDT
Kanye West GQ Magazine August 2014
Kanye West is running his mouth off again, this time in a new cover story for the August issue of GQ magazine.

The rapper talked a lot about dealing with being a celebrity and dealing with the paparazzi; more specifically comparing life in the spotlight to facing the same kinds of discrimination that African-Americans faced during the civil rights movement of the 1960s. Yeah, he went there.

Kanye also explained that he's not the predator when it comes to the paparazzi, he's simply out to protect wife Kim Kardashian and their daughter, North, from those getting too close for comfort.

Marilyn Manson
"Sons of Anarchy" creator Kurt Sutter talked about casting rockers Marilyn Manson and Courtney Love during the Television Critics Association summer tour on Monday.

He explained how he likes to mix things up with surprising casting.

"I tend to do this every season, I like to do some casting that's a little bit outside the box, you know, from Stephen King to David Hasselhoff – we try to do stuff that's fun," he explained.

Manson's friendship with Sutter helped him land the role of Ron Tully, a white supremacist prisoner who Jax [Charlie Hunnam] uses to expand his power base.

Ten Comic Book Characters You've Probably Never Heard Of
Comic book culture tends to be hard for average Joes to just break into.

The fan devotion to certain brands forms an barrier that can be a little intimidating, and even off-putting, to those of us unfamiliar with that particular subculture.

To be an avid fan, comic book lovers are sometimes necessitated to remember a huge library of pas...

Review: Post-Apocalyptic Flick 'Aftermath' A Classic Case Of Been There, Done That

Review: Post-Apocalyptic Flick 'Aftermath' A Classic Case Of Bee
With post-apocalyptic films having been done to death, it’s hard for a film with such a subject to captivate with any sort of fresh perspective. Most recently it was surprisingly accomplished by filmmaker Xavier Gens who examined the after effects on the human animal with his dark and moody flick "The Divide." It’s what makes the arrival of the below average thriller titled "Aftermath" even less welcome. It’s yet another look at survivors after the use of nuclear weapons and comes off like "The Divide" light complete with characters we don’t care about and situations already seen – been ...

'Under the Dome' Season 2 Episode 4 Recap: A Poison Pig And The
Have you prayed to the dome this week? We can only hope so, because for the first time all season, "Under the Dome" boasts a threat that's actually threatening. No more butterflies or magnets or blood rain that causes mild skin irritation; "Revelation" brings Chester's Mill to the brink of societal collapse with swine flu terrorism.

The townspeople seem to have recovered from last week's Biblical-ish acid rain (Big Jim's face is less splotchy, at least, even if Lyle's isn't, at all). Little do they know, an actual danger is on its way in the form of Rebecca Pine and her census-turned-killi...
