‘The Walking Dead’ season 5 brings to life its 2nd episode with “Strangers,” as the group takes shelter with the mysterious Father Gabriel (Seth Gilliam), before making a decision about Abraham's proposed plan for D.C., while Bob discovers a new horror lurking in the woods from the ashes of Terminus.
This is a story that you need to stick with. Although actor and musician Jason Schwartzman is fairly recognizable -- that hair, that face, his relatively compact stature -- that doesn't mean he's always actually recognized by fans. At least, he's not accurately recognized by fans.
'The Walking Dead' fans got their second taste of season 5's new big bad this past Sunday, as Terminus leader Gareth put the hurt on Rick and his crew, but will the scrappy survivor come back to bite everyone in the end? We talked to Andrew J. West himself for a course in 'Walking Dead' season 5 spoilers, including Gareth's mysterious past, and which cast member from the series might make for a good meal.
'The Legend of Korra' Book 4 has me hooked with story, but it's wowing me with the return of the original Metalbender, now 86 years old, and actress Philece Sampler's faithful rendition of her layered persona.

The way she speaks, the way she jabs, the way concern slips out of her hard shell, the way she forcefully reels in that trace of compassion after noticing it snuck out — Toph is the most successful “classic” character to transition to the new show. She needed to be. Only someone as no-nonsense as Toph could whip the Avatar pack into hero mode, the human Zoloft to Korra's spell of depression.

Where yesterday confirmed news that 'Game of Thrones' fans would visit the past via flashback in season 5, the HBO drama continues to look to the future as well. 'LOST' and 'Thor: The Dark World' star Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje has been added to the fifth season cast in a mysterious new role, but will readers of George R.R. Martin's books recognize the name?
HBO surprised the TV world yesterday with the announcement of a standalone streaming option for the reclusive network, but it isn't the only TV giant looking to secure a streaming future. CBS has announced (and launched) its own pay-service to give non-cable users access to their library of content, calling the new innovation "CBS Access."
'Game of Thrones' fan-favorite Charles Dance fueled speculation we might see his character again after season 4 finale "The Children," as have a number of production reports suggesting we might head into the past now again again for season 5. Now, showrunners confirm that 'Game of Thrones' season 5 will include flashbacks for the first time, allowing the possibility of other characters to return as well.
FX period drama 'The Americans' has kept reasonably quiet heading into season 3 next year (state secrets, and all), but following a presence at New York Comic-Con 2014 this past weekend, the Soviet spy series has unclassified a rather large addition. Oscar nominee and Tony-winner Frank Langella will join 'The Americans' season 3 cast, but as whom?
We weren't altogether surprised to learn that 'Star Wars Rebels' would incorporate the iconic Darth Vader at some point, though the news that James Earl Jones would reprise the role on October 26 certainly caught our attention.
