'24: Live Another Day' Finale Recap And Review: '10:00 PM - 11:0
Here we are: the 24: Live Another Day finale. The conclusion to the event series we waited months for and have bitten our nails over for weeks. Thirteen hours of story time condensed into forty-five minutes of air time. The final end to the 24 saga, or is it? This show goes out the way it came in: a mixed bag of great things and not-so-great ones, not quite reaching its former glory but still damned entertaining.

Picking up exactly where we left off, Audrey realizes that her friend isn't dead, just bleeding to death. When she tries to move to help her, the sniper does the obvious thing an...

'24: Live Another Day': Tzi Ma On Playing Jack Bauer's Worst Enemy

Since he first appeared in season four of 24, Cheng Zhi has been that character fans have loved to hate. And now that Cheng has reappeared as the big bad in 24: Live Another Day, we're just one episode away from seeing if Jack can finally beat him. But the man who plays Cheng, veteran actor Tzi Ma, is much more likeable than his on-screen persona. Actually, let's not beat around the bush - he's awesome. We connected with Tzi before tonight's finale to ask him about his 24 experience and the surprising role he's playing next.

"He's actually a very different guy now," Tzi said of Cheng, the ...

Philip Winchester And 23 More Awesome '24' Guest Stars

July 14th, 2014 12:04pm EDT

One of the most awesome things about 24: Live Another Day is Philip Winchester.

For the last two episodes, the Strike Back star has been serving one of President James Heller's military advisors, and we're loving it. For one, as anyone who's seen the Cinemax show knows, Winchester is one of the most criminally underrated actors out there at the moment. He makes the entire political side of the story cooler just by being there to argue about threat levels and nuclear superiority, and he's one of the rare actors who can make all that jargon actually interesting to hear.

Secondly, his appear...

'True Blood': Bailey Noble On Saying Goodbye To Adilyn Bellefleur

'True Blood': Bailey Noble On Saying Goodbye To Adilyn Bellefleu
Life hasn't been very easy for Adilyn Bellefleur, but Bailey Noble is enjoying her time playing Adilyn on HBO's hit series True Blood. With the seventh and final season of the show underway, we caught up with Bailey last week to talk about her promotion to series regular status and how difficult it is for her not to tell anyone what's really going on in Bon Temps.

"I'm not quite ready for it to be over yet!" laughed the actress, who joined True Blood in a recurring capacity last season. "I want to spend more time with [Adilyn]. When the show's done, she's done."

And hopefully not 'done' a...

George R.R. Martin Flips The Bird To Those Who Doubt He'll Finish 'Game Of Thrones' Book Series

George R.R. Martin Flips The Bird To Those Who Doubt He'll Finis
It's generally common courtesy to not speculate how someone is going to die - especially when that person is... you know, a real, living, actual person. And double-especially when that person is George R.R. Martin - the acclaimed author behind the incredibly popular 'A Song of Ice and Fire' book series, and the mastermind of HBO's 'A Game of Thrones.'

Now, granted, we've all theorized about how our favorite or most hated characters will die on Game of Thrones. "Who's going to bite the dust next?" is the thought that's on everyone's minds as they are reading the books or watching the show. ...

5 TV Shows For Your 'Game Of Thrones' Withdrawal

5 TV Shows For Your 'Game Of Thrones' Withdrawal
Admit it, you have Game of Thrones withdrawal. It's OK, we're not judging you here at Starpulse, mainly because we're in the same boat! We miss Game of Thrones as much as you do, and the idea of waiting for season 5 when it airs sometime around April 2015, well, is tearing us up inside. After four years of investing our time, patience, love, hate and endless fan chatter about the characters of Game of Thrones, to have them snatched away from us yet again is genuinely cruel.

However, there is hope! While you may have to wait just under a year until you get your Game of Thrones fix, there ...

'24: Live Another Day' Recap And Review: '9:00 PM - 10:00 PM' -
When we left 24: Live Another Day, Jack Bauer's worst enemy was trying to start the next international war. In this next-to-last episode, we discover that he's even ticked off at his own country now, that you can't keep a good actor off camera, and that Audrey and Mark's marriage is probably doomed. Or at least, Mark is doomed. And no one much cares.

Hey, this week we actually get to see Philip Winchester and not just hear him. Someone please give this man a gun and let him go save some lives. He's definitely needed, because there's a Chinese carrier sinking, and Jack and Kate are still en...

'24: Live Another Day' Recap And Review: '8:00 PM - 9:00 PM' - W
With only three episodes to go - and one massive time jump ahead in the series finale - it's time (no pun intended) to start wrapping things up on 24: Live Another Day. The writers accomplish this by reaching back into their toy box by bringing back another old adversary, and setting up a new storyline that might be hard to definitively close by season's end.

Jack reveals to a shocked Kate that her boss is one of the bad guys, and that he's currently on the run with the control device that can do a lot more than just commandeer drones. Cut to Navarro, who's officially setting up a meeting ...

Ever Wondered What A Retro 'Game Of Thrones' Might Look Like? Now you Don't Have To

Ever Wondered What A Retro 'Game Of Thrones' Might Look Like? No
Remember VHS tapes? There's a little bit of a hipster inside of us all - we all yearn for 'the good ol days' when everything was 'more simple' (except for rewinding those damn tapes.)

Well apparently Game of Thrones fans have dreamed up an alternate reality in which Game of Thrones came out in 1995 - they even made a pretty convincing VHS style trailer for the show, complete with an authentic 90's style HBO opener, and a very appropriate theme song by Queen.

Is 1995 not far back enough for you? Well no problem. Because there also just happens to be an 80s style rendition of the incred...

'24: Live Another Day' Recap And Review: '7:00 PM - 8:00 PM' - V
At the end of last Monday's episode, 24: Live Another Day revealed a very 24 twist when it blew up a major character, if not plotwise, then certainly in title. It's not so surprising, then, that the show now makes another very 24 move and follows that up with a "Well, not exactly..."

This week's action begins with everyone at the embassy watching news coverage of the blast that they all now know killed President Heller. The Prime Minister (hey, Stephen Fry still works here!) tries to comfort Audrey, before Caroline (Miranda Raison still works here too) questions whether or not Margot will ...
