Buried Away

“Grey’s Anatomy’s” first flashback of the season is of a five-year-old Meredith—through voiceover—getting lost for the first time. On a whizzing carousel she became separated from her mom. When she found her again, it was mama grey that now looked confused and lost; as she would be, considering she was carrying Richard’s baby at this time.

Rejection of both daughters is how Ellis coped and Mer’s case she clung to her favorite doll, anatomy Jane, until s...

John Barrowman Dishes On 'Arrow' Season 3, New Album, And Concer
There's nobody busier than John Barrowman. The multi-talented star recently hosted ABC's summer series Sing Your Face Off, then released his first independent album You Raise Me Up, and starting October 8 we'll be able to enjoy him as a regular on The CW's hit Arrow.

'Scandal' Season 4 Premiere Recap: The Best And Worst Moments Of
There’s no doubt that Scandal is one of the most talked about shows on TV. It’s known for having more “shocker” moments per season than most shows have during their entire run. Part of the show’s appeal was also part of its downfall. The shortened season 3 had a significant drop in quality with its wishy washy characterization of the once rock solid Olivia Pope, misunderstanding of the audiences interest in the Quinn/Huck pairing, and the increasing heinousness of Grant. It seemed for a while that the show cared more about shocker moments than character development.

New 'True Detective' Star Vince Vaughn's Dramatic Resume
Many people were surprised and confused by HBO's announcement that Vince Vaughn would join Colin Farrell as the co-lead in the next season of True Detective, and we can't blame them - in recent years, Vaughn has been known for almost nothing but comedies, including Wedding Crashers, The Internship, The Watch, and his awesome cameos in the Anchorman films as Ron Burgundy's rival Wes Mantooth.

However, we'd argue that casting Vaughn in the role of Frank Semyon, "career criminal in danger of losing his empire when his move into legitimate enterprise is upended by the murder of a business part...
