'Buffy' season 9 spin-off 'Willow': Our favorite witch tries to bring magic back to the world -- EXCLUSIVE FIRST LOOK

In Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 9 — the spin-off comic book series, overseen by Joss Whedon, that continues the story of his distaff dispatcher of neck-biters — the world is devoid of magic. It’s made life less outrageous for Buffy and her friends — no giant Dawn rampaging through the streets of Tokyo, for example — but for one of the Scoobies, it’s also made life simply less, period.

For Willow, reverting from a righteously powerful witch to just another mortal person has proven so painful, her one goal in life has been to bring magic back to the world. But how? Willow recently finished an arc on the sister comic series Angel & Faith in which the trio ventured into a hell dimension in the pursuit of their own impossible goals. And in this first look at the five-issue Willow miniseries (subtitled “Wonderland” and launching Nov. 21), we get a sense of what’s at stake for Willow’s quest other than the return of her magical mojo.  READ FULL STORY

'Robot Chicken': New York Comic-Con exclusive! -- PHOTO

Cartoon Network’s heavily-caffeinated mega-spoof Robot Chicken is currently in the middle of its sixth season of frantically satirizing every element of geek culture. Chicken‘s co-creator and patron saint Seth Green will be at New York Comic-Con tomorrow talking about what’s coming up on the show, but Cartoon Network has given EW.com an exclusive — and, absent any context, somewhat horrifying — image from an upcoming episode. Suffice it to say that you may never watch E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial the same way ever again. Look upon the image if you dare! (And click on the image for a bigger image if you double-dare!)

Chris Harrison blogs the 'Bachelor Pad' season finale

bachelor-pad-chris-harrison

There is so much we need to discuss that took place on the finale of Bachelor Pad 3 but let’s be honest the only thing that anybody on the planet will be discussing is Nick deciding to keep the money all for himself leaving Rachel heartbroken and just plain broke. I can’t wait to hear from all of you and get your feelings on this situation. While I don’t necessarily want to just throw out my own opinion I do have a unique perspective of this situation and there are some things I think you should know that might change your perspective.

But first I want to say that no matter what you think of Nick’s decision, you have to feel bad for Rachel. Whether she was used by Michael or not, I think we could all see she was falling in love with a guy that was just never going to have those same feelings for her. She was left heartbroken. She did a very good job of expressing her feelings for Michael and did the best she could to try and get some sort of answer. But let’s face it, we’ve all been in that situation, and there is never an explanation that will make anybody feel better about it.

The only thing that made any of that okay was the fact that Rachel knew she would at least walk away from this $125,000 richer. Unfortunately for Rachel, Nick had other plans for that money — which is to say, he really wanted it for himself. Let’s put Rachel’s feelings aside and the fact that Nick didn’t handle the situation well after he won the money, and let’s lay out a few facts:  READ FULL STORY

Chris Harrison blogs 'Bachelor Pad' episode 7

The final episode in the house was the biggest one yet. Next week’s episode will be the finale which takes place in front of a live studio audience and I’ll talk a little bit about that later.

This week was different as we held two competitions. The first competition was a huge project. We blacked out the windows in the back of the house so the contestants couldn’t see what was going on but due to all the noise they knew something big was happening back there. Our crews worked non-stop day and night to quickly build that contraption over the pool.

This challenge was completely based on who knew the most Bachelor and Bachelor Pad related trivia. Last week we saw Chris and Sarah dominate the Spelling Bee and this week they did it again. In all fairness, it was Sarah that dominated this competition by herself. All Chris had to do was sit there and enjoy the view as each competitor fell into the pool one by one. This challenge wasn’t even close, and Sarah could’ve gone on answering questions all day. She got several questions that I didn’t even know the answers to.

Chris Harrison blogs 'Bachelor Pad' episode 6

bachelor-pad-chris-harrison

It was really interesting to read the reactions to last week’s elimination. Many of you respected what Erica did, and many of you were in Michael’s camp. One of the things I love about this show is the different emotions and opinions it brings out in our fans. One thing is for sure, and that is Rachel is not happy that Michael is gone, especially now as the contestants are partnered up all the way to the very end. The good news for Rachel is that her new partner Nick (I had no idea he was on this season, but apparently he has been living in the house for weeks) is a good business partner that now wants to do the same thing she does: Survive. And in an exciting twist, we not only got to see Nick, but he said these three inspirational words: “Let’s do this.” READ FULL STORY

Chris Harrison blogs 'Bachelor Pad' episode 5

Once again this episode starts with the fallout from the last elimination. As you can see, the anger management classes aren’t exactly working for Chris. He’s an angry little elf, isn’t he?  Michael had a great line when he said Chris was taking up “all the a-hole space” in the house. You know things are getting out of hand when even Michael Stagliano thinks you’re being a dill-weed.

This week’s challenge, “The Great Fall of China,” really did seem simple when I was explaining it, but as you saw, it was pretty difficult to execute. I can’t begin to tell you how much fun we had coming up with the names of the challenges this season. To think there could be that many seemingly “intelligent” adults having a conversation about “Hot Sludge Funday” or “The Great Fall of China” is outstanding. But that’s why we get the big bucks — we’re making important decisions that will change the world for the better! READ FULL STORY

Chris Harrison blogs 'Bachelor Pad' episode 4

The Olympic flame might have gone out in London, but on Bachelor Pad, the wildfires are just starting to burn. With Reid gone, there was a huge shift of power in the house and the people left in the wake had to come together to try and get rid of the now-forming power couples. Our competition this week, the Game Show Mash-Up, was really a no-holds-barred, tell it like it is kind of competition, and let me tell you, it wasn’t long before the claws came out.

The women started off and the rivalry between Jaclyn, Ed’s partner, and Sarah, his recently forsaken lover, goes on. Sarah can’t quite see the connection between Jaclyn and Ed, but I think it’s pretty clear that something is going on. More on that later. In the meantime, the real drama began when Jamie called out Jaclyn for being fake. Jaclyn may be the funny one in the house, but when someone gets under her skin, the jokes stop and her anger really comes out. From that moment on, Jaclyn was gunning for Jamie and no amount of explaining from Jamie was going to change that. READ FULL STORY

Chris Harrison blogs 'Bachelor Pad' episode 3

Before I get into the mess that was this week’s Bachelor Pad, I want to take a moment to talk about a beautiful thing that happened to our family this week. Saturday I was honored to officiate the wedding of two of our wonderful producers, Cassie and Pete. I have watched these two grow professionally and romantically over the years, and it has been a wonderful thing to witness. This love culminated in an amazing ceremony this weekend surrounded by family and friends. It was fantastic to see and hang with so many of our happy couples at the wedding, including Ben and Courtney, Emily and Jef, and Ashley and JP. There was a lot of love in the house, and I can’t wait for the next wedding to come. I hope they are on their honeymoon and not reading this but I just want to say congratulations to Cassie and Pete — your Bachelor family loves you both very much.

This week’s Bachelor Pad was interesting to say the least. READ FULL STORY

Chris Harrison blogs 'The Bachelorette' finale AND the 'Bachelor Pad' premiere!

chris-harrison

I hope you don’t mind but since it’s been a busy 48 hours, I’m combining my blogs. I figure since there’s really no official blogging rules (yes, I checked) I could make up my own and so talking about the live Bachelorette finale and the premiere of Bachelor Pad in one blog is okay. Before we get to the beauty that is Pad I want to step back to Sunday night and put a bow on Emily’s season and our three-hour television event.

First of all, I absolutely loved the idea of doing the show live and creating what amounted to be one big nationwide viewing party. For me to be able to watch the show along with a live studio audience packed with fans was a thrill for me. To see it through their eyes was incredible and it reminded all of us at the Bachelor why we do this show and how much people really love it. The finale really spoke for itself so I’ll just give a few thoughts on what turned out to be one of the best seasons we’ve ever had. READ FULL STORY
