It’s official folks. Supergirl becomes the eye network’s first new series order for the 2015-16 season. I guess producer Greg Berlanti (Arrow, The Flash) wowed network execs with his depiction of the superheroine.
Supergirl follows Kara Danvers/Kara Zor-El (Melissa Benoist), Superman’s cousin, at age 24, when she decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be, after leaving Krypton and hiding her powers.

Whether you like him or not, everyone has a favorite Arnold Schwarzenegger film. After watching this montage, I realize I have more than a few. Kindergarten Cop, True Lies, The Terminator, The Running Man and Total Recall quickly come to mind.
With the assistance of James Corden, the 67-year-old actor reenacts memorable scenes and iconic lines from his films. All of which is done within six minutes. Impressive.
My favorite moment was easily when Corden channeled his inner Jamie Lee Curtis from True Lies. I’ll never see that scene in the same way again. The Predator and Batman & Robin moments also slayed. Check out the hilarious clip below.
American Crime Story is easily one of FOX’s most highly-anticipated new series. The new Ryan Murphy anthology will tackle the trail of the century for its first outing. The casting alone has been incredible.
American Crime Story: The People V. O.J. Simpson features a star-studded cast which includes Cuba Gooding Jr. as the Juice, Sarah Paulson as Marcia Clarke, David Schwimmer as Robert Kardashian, John Travolta as Robert Shapiro, Courtney B. Vance as Johnnie Cochran, and Connie Britton as the morally-corrupt (RHOBH) Faye Resnick. Former Dallas star Jordana Brewster is the latest addition. Find out what role she’s playing below.
With Looking officially kaput, save for a wrap-up movie special, I need a new group of gays to live vicariously through. Hunting Season just might be it. As much as I like to think I’m still in my twenties, reality is, I’m not.
I never caught the first season, but after checking out the web series’ second season trailer, my interest has been piqued. I liked Looking, but this is what the HBO dramedy should’ve been.
Hunting Season comes from the creative mind of Jon Marcus whose credits include working on Party Monster, Boys Don’t Cry and a half a dozen television pilots. Ben Baur plays the series protagonist. Think a young gay Carrie Bradshaw minus the shoe fetish. He, too, also writes about sex.
Season 2 debuts on May 5 on Vimeo On Demand. Following episodes will premiere every Tuesday for four weeks thereafter. Check out the trailer below.
Season 2 Synopsis
Figuring out what you want in your late 20s is hard enough but does keeping a secret sex blog help sort out your feelings or just remind you of all of your mistakes? For Alex (Ben Baur), incredible self-awareness in the face of endless possibility is a double-edged sword, and when he runs into someone from his past who makes him question his choices, he decides it’s time to make some changes. His two best friends are going through their own turmoil as well, as Tommy (Mark Sinoway) confronts someone who despises him and everything he stands for, and TJ (Jake Manabat) and his husband Will explore non-monogamy in their marriage.
Another month and another whackload of changes on Netflix. Here’s a rundown of all the titles being added and expiring ones.
If you haven’t watched the last James Bond film, Skyfall, yet, you have only a couple more days to stream it. The 007 flick disappears on May 5. However, if you wanted to watch A Knight’s Tale, Along Came Polly or Boys Don’t cry, you’re SOL. All of them have been removed at the stroke of midnight.
Don’t fret though, there’s a bunch of new titles to entertain you this month. The most notable being Inglourious Basterds, Fruitvale Station and both Legally Blonde films. Remember to stretch before pulling out the bend and snap ;)
Another one to watch out for is the streaming service’s new comedy, Grace & Frankie, co-starring Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda. That premieres on May 8. Check out below what else is in and out.
Sometimes scoring a smash hit right off the bat can be a double-edged sword. You get the taste of success immediately but trying to recapture the magic can prove difficult sometimes.
Mika’s had a couple of solid releases including “We Are Golden” and “Popular Song” featuring Ariana Grande, but nothing has topped the charts like “Grace Kelly.” The lead cut off his upcoming fourth studio album, No Place In Heaven, is a bit reminiscent of his breakout hit. Could “Talk About You” be his comeback?
The 31-year-old drops an equally solid clip to support the single. He playfully navigates himself through a colorful cardboard landscape. It’s simple but very well executed. In today’s music landscape, naturally there’s some product placement. There’s no Beats By Dre in sight, but instead a strategically placed SWATCH watch and vehicle are present.
Check out the KT Auleta-directed clip below. If you love fashion, Mika rocks a parade of slick suits. Me likey. Mika’s new album drops on June 15, 2015.
Another former alum has snagged a role in American Horror Story: Hotel. Ryan Murphy revealed Angela Bassett is the latest addition to the star-studded cast. Her AHS hat trick is now complete after appearing in Coven and Freak Show.
The 56-year-old actress joins previously confirmed cast members Lady Gaga, Matt Bomer, Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Evan Peters, Chloe Sevigny, Wes Bentley, and Cheyenne Jackson. I wonder which former alum is next.
As the old adage states, if you can’t beat them, join them. Netflix that is.
In an unprecedented move by any broadcast network, NBC revealed it will release all 13 episodes of David Duchovny’s new series immediately after the two-hour premiere on Thursday, May 28. Aquarius will then be available on NBC.com, the network’s app and other on-demand platforms.
Set in the 1960s, Duchovny plays an LA police sergeant who is helped in a missing persons case by undercover officer Brian Shafe (Grey Damon), who behaves like a hippie and fits in with the people being questioned. Unknown to them, their investigation will lead them to Charles Manson. Aquarius is a sprawling work of historical fiction that begins two years before the 1969 Tate-LaBianca murders.
