South Park already revealed that Lorde is actually the middle-aged father of Stan Marsh. But that doesn’t mean Lorde can’t make great music, as evidenced by “Push (Feeling Good on a Wednesday),” which has been released in full. READ FULL STORY

To honor The Walking Dead‘s fifth season premiere, a London chef took inspiration from the show’s walkers and their appetite for human flesh. But don’t worry—his food won’t give customers the same appetite that zombies have.
FWx discovered that Jim Thomlinson, the chef for London Mess, has debuted a burger that supposedly tastes like human flesh at the London pop-up Terminus Tavern. Better yet, the site published his recipe so that readers can make their own burgers at home. READ FULL STORY
Gilmore Girls has finally made its way to Netflix, and while the entire series has only been available for a little over a week, most fans are probably well into their rewatches by now. (Even the Hulk is on season six already.)
As this is the first time the show has been available outside of DVD releases—and ABC Family reruns–there’s been a revival of many of its biggest talking points. Who should Rory have really ended up with? Who’s the best Stars Hollow resident? What episodes need to be watched or skipped while marathoning the show for the 12th time?
There’s not quite as much discussion, however, of the show’s most important dynamic: Lorelai and Rory Gilmore’s relationship. Maybe that’s because Lorelai and Rory’s connection is a given—their ups and downs and pop culture references are the bedrock of nearly every episode. But we should be talking about that unique relationship, because it’s one that makes a parent and child more than family: Gilmore Girls makes them best friends too.
Killing off a major character is one of the biggest risks a show can take. Some of these deaths end up paying off nicely; others go down in history as the death that killed a series. And then you have the deaths that, ultimately, don’t make much of a difference either way.
In honor of Homeland‘s return—which comes back to Showtime after killing off Brody in season 3—we went back to see how a handful of other beloved series fared after offing major characters:
Few recent TV shows have inspired as much Tumblr meme-crafting, hardcore shipping, and hashtag-trending fandom as Sleepy Hollow, which just returned to kick off its second season a few weeks back. The show is one of the most unique on television, as it is part cop procedural, part demon-hunting fantasy, and part fish-out-of-water comedy—the latter driven by time-traveling American Revolutionary Ichabod Crane.
Sleepy Hollow has built up that deep-diving level of devotion by crafting a totally unique world, so it’s no wonder that people have sought to tell other stories within that universe that go beyond the weekly adventures on the TV show. The first of an expected cavalcade of tie-in novels is already available, and now comes a monthly comic book series from Boom! Studios, the same publisher responsible for the Big Trouble In Little China books (among many awesome others). READ FULL STORY
While promoting her new album, Gypsy Heart in New York City, Colbie Caillat took a trip to the pop-up coffeehouse Central Perk. And because you can’t stand behind a mic at Central Perk without paying homage to the greatest singer in Friends history, Caillat got the crowd to join in and sing Phoebe Buffay’s “Smelly Cat.”
She didn’t have a guitar, and unlike Phoebe, Caillat actually knows what a key is, but there’s still something pretty magical about someone singing that it’s not smelly cat’s fault at Central Perk. If only she’d had a wind machine.
Chris Pratt stretched his improv skills ahead of his Saturday Night Live hosting duties this Saturday, Sept. 27 by appearing on The Tonight Show. And if his game of “Word Sneak” with Jimmy Fallon is any indication, Pratt is more than ready for any off-the-cuff moments Studio 8H might require of him.
In Mork and Mindy, the sitcom that ran from 1978 to 1982, Robin Williams played Mork, an extraterrestrial who made his way to Earth in an egg-shaped spaceship. (Yep, Williams did the whole extraterrestrial thing before E.T. made it cool.)
Now, more than 30 years later, Williams’ spacesuit is reportedly going up for auction, along with Mork’s spaceship.
According to AFP, both items will go on sale at an auction of Hollywood memorabilia that will be held in Calabasas, California. Mork’s spacesuit has an estimated price of $20,000, while the spaceship is expected to go for anywhere between $4,000 and $6,000.
The auction will be held from Oct. 17 to Oct. 20.
Fox’s new series Gotham has the difficult task of introducing a number of famous and lesser-known Batman villains before they officially don the costume and alter ego. The show’s pilot accomplishes this in its own special way: by hinting at appearances by the Penguin, Mr. Freeze, and the Riddler with some very, very obvious bits of dialogue. For example: “If I want riddles, I’ll read the funny pages.”
With so many possible criminals just waiting in the back alleys of Gotham, the show will have to clock in some overtime in order to showcase them all; if the show lasts for several seasons, the producers may have to resort to Crazy-Quilt and Film Freak. How exactly will the show handle hinting at these and other criminals? Subtle (read: not at all subtle) dialogue clues, of course.
In a new photo Ellen Pompeo posted on WhoSay, some of the Grey’s Anatomy cast got into character as their Orange Is the New Black favorites, including Sara Ramirez as Alex. Welcome to what Pompeo calls “Blue is the new black.”
If Meredith Grey were a member of Litchfield prison, who would she be? Well, that probably depends on whether we’re talking about dark-and-twisty Meredith or present-day Meredith, but regardless, Ellen Pompeo seems to be a fan of Tricia (and her cornrows). And considering these guys are all still alive despite working at what will always be known as “Seattle Grace-Mercy Death,” I’d say they’d have a good shot against the women of Litchfield. Well, until they met Red.
Grey’s Anatomy returns Thursday, Sept. 25 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
