SDCC-VIDEO-ADAM-WEST.jpg

While Batman’s future is on everyone’s mind at this year’s Comic-Con International, his past is getting its fair share of attention too. With the November 11th release date of the classic 1966 Batman television series on home video announced at this year’s convention, former Batman and current Mayor of Quahog Adam West came by the EW hideout to reminisce about the show, his co-workers, and Batman’s little-known connection to actor Josh Brolin.

'Breaking Bad' Spanish remake: Top moments from the new Walter, Jesse

METASTASIS

“Yo no estoy en peligro. El peligro soy yo” Breaking Bad, Episode 6, Season 4. (Translation: “I’m not in danger. I am the danger.”)

Say hola to Walter Blanco, better known to U.S. audiences as Walter White, the quiet, cancer-stricken chemistry teacher turned meth cook in cult drama Breaking Bad. In Metastasis, Walter looks the same – actor Diego Trujillo’s craggy face, goatee and wire-rimmed glasses make him an eerie doppelgänger for Bryan Cranston – but he speaks Spanish and lives in the Colombian capitol of Bogotá.

Starz's 'Power' react: A really long 50 Cent music video

Within seconds of the Power’s opening credits, the viewer knows exactly what the series is about. Like 50 Cent’s hit album, it’s largely about how to Get Rich or Die Tryin,’ with gratuitous shots of expensive watches, expansive penthouse apartments, and pricey red-bottomed Louboutin shoes. Well, specifically, Power is about James “Ghost” St. Patrick (Mary Jane alum Omari Hardwick), a big-time New York City drug dealer who opens a hot, high-end nightclub as a front to hide his dirty drug money.

'New Girl' recap: 'Dance' like nobody's watching

Did the latest New Girl feel like the penultimate episode of a season? Nope. Did I enjoy it? Absolutely. I’ve gotten some heat (not of the Winston variety) this year for being a demanding recapper. Apparently wanting forward momentum from a sitcom is too much to ask. Well, “Dance” didn’t really advance the plot, but I still found it charming. It had solid one-liners and independent, yet appropriate antics for each character. All that plus a song about eatin’ ‘nanas in the dark and plenty of dance-ready tunes. That’s enough for me! But was it enough for you? Read on… READ FULL STORY

Television Without Pity: A personal EWlogy -- ESSAY

television-without-pity.jpg

I’ll never look at a bucket of ribs the same way again.

I’ve been a steadfast reader of Television Without Pity since I lit upon Tracie “Potes” Potochnik’s America’s Next Top Model recaps back in 2004. In snarky TWoP style, Potes regularly engaged in a gentle mockery of host-mogul-mentor Tyra Banks about everything from her Kool-Aid weave to her love of barbecue-slathered pork. From the first lines of those recaps, it felt like I’d found the website equivalent of my very soul (and what a trash-TV-filled, highbrow-educated soul it is). And so, like Tyra Banks and those ribs, I devoured the damn things week after week. As with all of the site’s recaps, they were well worth the wait.

'New Girl': Live-in Lovahs

We had two returns to celebrate tonight, Newbies! First (and most importantly) FURGUSON! Oh yeah, and a financially ruined Schmidt is moving back into the loft. Also, Abby’s moving out. So much has changed, so much has stayed the same… READ FULL STORY

'New Girl' recap: Misled 'Exes' and Places for Sexin'

Can’t say this episode did a lot to move sitcom gender politics forward, folks. As we have long known, women only have two modes: adorably naïve or vengeful psychopath. Men, meanwhile, are just out to bone. Feel free to disagree with me (and all respect to Adam Brody and Mary Elizabeth Ellis), but this ep felt like a bit of a letdown after Sunday’s genuinely hilarious, plot-advancing post-Super Bowl episode. Sure, it exposed an emotional side to Nick we rarely see (albeit one even Jess didn’t fully buy),  but it also lost some ground — for me at least — with a reliance on clichéd “big concepts” rather than small-scale character comedy. The latter is where New Girl thrives. So, shall we? READ FULL STORY

'Retromania' on MTV: Amber Rose is still trying to make 'fetch' happen -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Mean Girls geekery rolls deep, y’all.

So what happens when a model, two rappers, and an inked-up ginger channel their inner teen queens to engage in a little telephonic subterfuge? Find out below… READ FULL STORY

A tribute to fall TV's first casualty: 'Lucky 7' in memoriam -- VIDEO

Nothing good comes from winning the lottery. Poor Lucky 7 learned that the hard way when ABC canceled the freshman drama after airing only two episodes.

Let’s raise a glass to the show that we barely got to know. Your legacy will probably not extend any further than this video tribute. Brutal? Sure, but no one ever said fall TV was an easy place to make it.
