The most intriguing twist in the TV series Merlin was the portrayal of Camelot as a kingdom in the grip of an anti-magic crusade. That meant that the series protagonist — a young incarnation of the famous titular wizard — was essentially living like an X-Man, forced to keep his sorcery skills hidden even from his closest friends. On this week’s episode of Merlin, the titular young wizard has to make a pivotal decision to save the wizard-hating King Uther using sorcery. In this exclusive clip, Merlin has a heated exchange with his friend and mentor Gaius. Check out the video below, and start getting excited for what promises to be a major turning point in the Merlin mythology. READ FULL STORY

Cartoon Network’s Adventure Time features a whole madcap array of exciting magical creatures, nobly heroic quests, in-your-face surreality, anthropomorphized candy, and totally sweet music. It’s a massive compilation of all things geeky — 8-bit videogames, high fantasy, cool hats. We’re big fans of the show, so it was a blast when we got to meet Adventure Time creator Pendleton Ward at this weekend’s New York Comic-Con. Ward proved his Renaissance manhood by pulling a random string of words out of a hat and turning those words into an endearingly poignant character. Watch our interview below; the new episode airs tonight. READ FULL STORY
It’s one thing to meet that actor who was once in that one movie you liked, but it’s another to meet the folks that taught you how to count. Elmo and Cookie Monster made the trip from Sesame Street to the EW offices to tell us about their new season (which starts next Monday), and we couldn’t have been more excited had it been Johnny Depp sword-fighting with a time-traveling Theodore Roosevelt. In honor of their upcoming slate of guest stars, the two of them took us through their interpretations of some of TV’s biggest shows — including The Big Bang Theory, CSI: Miami, and The Office (which, coincidentally, name-checked Sesame Street in its premiere last night) – and we have to say, Cookie Monster would actually make a pretty good replacement for Michael Scott. Check out the video below and watch as your adult and childhood television viewing habits collide. (By the way, I’m the Muppet in the middle.) READ FULL STORY
Lisa Kudrow is hosting this year’s Webby Awards, which will be broadcast live on Facebook on June 13, and the first of three new promos featuring the former Friends and Comeback actress makes us so nostalgic it hurts.
Thankfully, Kudrow’s Web Therapy, which started as an online series, will be coming to Showtime soon. But from her delivery to her expressions, we can’t help but miss her presence in our lives terribly. So, comeback soon, Lisa.
Meanwhile, check out the promo below. It’s an EW Exclusive! READ FULL STORY
The Backstreet Boys hold a special place in my heart, as they were the subjects of my very first EW cover story all the way back in 1998. In the 13 years since, I’ve crossed paths with them four more times, most recently for an interview with the four remaining BSB members and the five New Kids on the Block, who have joined forces for a summer arena tour and joint compilation album (which cracked the top 10 in its first week of release). Now that the NKOTBSB tour has begun, go to our Entertainment Weekly Facebook page and “like” us to unlock our bonus video footage of the nine guys at our EW photo shoot, where they discussed why the two groups gel so well, and which New Kids serve as “big brothers” to which Backstreet Boys.
