While members of the press sometime get to see pilots and episodes before the general public, there are times where everyone — no matter your vocation or access — need to catch up. That was the case with Touch, which I finally got around to watching yesterday on Hulu after a long week of traveling. And while I should feel a little shamed that I’m late to the party, I also sort of don’t. READ FULL STORY

Join EW.com tonight for a live chat with Star Wars: The Clone Wars star James Arnold Taylor, who will take your questions on viEWer from 7:45 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. ET and provide running commentary for tonight’s episode.
James is best known to Clone Wars fans for voicing the animated incarnation of Obi-Wan Kenobi for both the hand-drawn and CGI incarnations of the series, as well as in numerous Star Wars videogames. And, by the Force, has this ever been a doozy of an arc for Obi-Wan on The Clone Wars or what? READ FULL STORY
Ever wondered what AMC’s zombie-tacular show The Walking Dead might look like if it was an ’80s sitcom? Of course you haven’t. That would be crazy! But this hasn’t stopped someone providing the answer in the form of a video mashup which boasts both the theme song from Growing Pains and some entertainingly retro, fake credits (“Guest starring Well Zombie”).
What would Merle have to say about all this? (Something horribly racist, probably. So let’s not dwell on that!)
You can check out the clip below. The “real” Walking Dead returns on Feb. 12. READ FULL STORY
Last night, Syfy premiered the new series Lost Girl, which stars Anna Silk (pictured) as a Succubus — a female who feeds off the sexual energy of others — named Bo. Was the acting stellar? No. Was there enough ‘S’ in that TV-MA LSV rating? No. But a lot of exposition is required in a pilot like this, and now that we’ve got the setup, I assume there’ll be a little less conversation and a little more action in future episodes when Bo becomes a private investigator specializing in the paranormal. (Hello, Angel!) By the end of the hour, I was setting my DVR to record new episodes (not at 10 p.m. ET, but the midnight repeats). Here’s why: READ FULL STORY
I know we’re a couple days late for gift-giving, but file this under ‘things I can’t live without and ZOMG how did this not exist when I was camping out for the New Hope rerelease in 1997?’: Princess Leia headphone covers.
That’s right – it appears that the obvious has only just now come to Etsy, that treasure trove of handicrafts. Tech blog Geekology discovered this piece of pop culture gold, and notes that you could alternatively (as generations have done before) “glue a pair of cinnamon rolls to your headphones,” but, um, that sounds sticky.
The force is definitely with creator Jacqui Longlegs who posted her various Leia looks on her blog.
Better stock up now — Comic-Con is only six months away, people.
George Takei has accomplished what was once thought seemingly impossible and figured a way to settle one of the oldest nerd scores: The epic Star Trek vs. Star Wars debate. Prompted by the ongoing showdown between William Shatner (“First of all, Star Wars was derivative of Star Trek… derivative!”: Point Shatner) and Carrie Fisher (“Klingon? It just sounds like a laundry detergent”: Point Fisher), the great Mr. Sulu opted to take charge and become a Broker of Peace to put an end to the galaxy-and-decade-spanning feud once and for all.
But how does one do that for a embittered battle in which both sides have such dedicated, unflappable supporters? It’s quite simple, really: Call out Twilight and urge both Star Trek and Star Wars fans to come together to mutually hate on it. (All the points: Takei.) READ FULL STORY
