'The Vampire Diaries' - 'Under Control' Recap

The Vampire Diaries: Under Control
(S01E18) "Have I entered an alternate universe where Stefan is fun?" - Damon

Somewhere in the last few episodes, things have shifted on 'The Vampire Diaries.' Now Damon seems like the good vamp (well, sort of; how fun was it to see his face when Uncle John came back from the dead?), while Stefan is going dark. I don't mind seeing Stefan go dark, because, frankly, he's a little boring being so virtuous all the time.

But he's not going willingly, that's for sure. He's trying hard to detox, but that drink of human blood last week -- Elena's blood -- gave him a wicked hunger that is not easily satisfied. Is there a 12-step program for vampires?

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, Sneak PeekWhat a high-class problem Bella Swan has. Choose her best friend, hunky Jacob Black, or her true love, broody Edward Cullen. Those who've read the 'Twilight' books by Stephenie Meyer already know the answer to that question. The rest of us will have to wait until 'The Twilight Saga: Eclipse' arrives in theaters June 30.

We'll get plenty of sneak peeks until then, and one of them aired on 'Entertainment Tonight' (weekdays, syndicated). Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Bryce Dallas Howard, who plays the deadly vampire Victoria, explain a little about their characters.

Watch the video after the jump.

Another werewolf show for Fox?

by Mike Moody, posted Dec 4th 2009 10:00AM
new moon wolfIt's hard to disparage Fox for wanting to get into the werewolf business after the huge – and soul crushing – financial success of the lycanthrope-heavy New Moon. But the network that canceled Dollhouse, Firefly and, amusingly, Werewolf might be stretching America's love affair with fanged furries to its breaking point.

Last year, we reported that Fox was eyeing Bitches, about a pack of urban shewolves. Now comes news that it's developing a second werewolf show called Howl, from Dreamworks TV. Variety says that Howl is a family drama about warring werewolf clans in a small Alaska town.

It sounds like Fox is looking to grab some of that Team Jacob money with its own hairy version of The Vampire Diaries.

True Blood: Season 3 SpoilersWe're super-psyched for 'True Blood' season 3 to start -- right now! But we'll have to wait a while -- probably June -- for that to happen. We'll do the math for you: it's seven long months away.

We reported a few days ago that two 'Prison Break' alumnus had joined the cast: Marshall Allman as Sam's younger brother Tommy and Shannon Lucio as Bill's wife (in flashbacks). Now comes word of two more casting notes:

Alan Ball of True Blood: The TV Squad Interview

by Jane Boursaw, posted Sep 11th 2009 2:01PM
Alan Ball, Rutina Wesley, Michelle Forbes, Deborah Ann WollOne of the most talked about shows of the summer is True Blood, HBO's supernatural series about vampires, werewolves, shapeshifters, and all those eerie things we find both fascinating and horrifying.

With the season two finale right around the corner -- "Beyond Here Lies Nothin'" airs Sunday at 9 PM ET on HBO -- it's a great time to catch up with series creator Alan Ball (pictured, with Michelle Forbes, Rutina Wesley, and Deborah Ann Woll at the TCA awards in August). Read on for his thoughts on the future of Maryann, a Sookie/Bill pairing, and even a few spoilers on season three.

What happens when monsters stop being scary ... and try Being Human?

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 30th 2009 10:02AM
Being Human

First of all, I should probably apologize for the title. I just couldn't help myself.

You may have missed it in all the excitement and hullabaloo over a certain Comic-Con convention over the weekend, but BBC America debuted a new show on Saturday night. A little thing called Being Human. You know how popular the vampires are with the kids these days, right? True Blood is huge. This one's got 'em. How about werewolves? New Moon's rocking the werewolf action. This one's got 'em. And a ghost, too, for good measure. (As Joel reported, they also presented at yesterday's BBC America press tour session, which generated far less hullabaloo).

What's an oddity about this show is that the premise sounds like an outrageous comedy idea. "Okay, here's what we got. A vampire and a werewolf move into an apartment with a ghost, where they try to live normal everyday lives." Shenanigans? Sure, but it's so much more. It's unexpectedly amazing television.

Mysterious creatures haunt Animal Planet's Lost Tapes DVD

by John Scott Lewinski, posted Jul 18th 2009 9:02AM
Bigfoot is only one of the mythical beasts walking on Animal Planet's Lost Tapes.If you ask the average zoologist what makes mysterious creatures like Bigfoot or El Chupacabra so impossible today when once scientifically-dismissed species like the Mountain Gorilla or Giant Squid are now common enough concepts, they'll probably say, "The difference is the gorilla and the squid are real, and Bigfoot isn't."

The scientific dismissal isn't keeping Animal Planet from releasing a new DVD featuring stories of cryptozoological oddities.

Announced this week and set for release this fall (October 6), Lost Tapes operates under the thesis that, while thousands of new species are discovered and classified each year, there are some creatures that science still refuses to recognize.

True Blood - season two spoilers!

True Blood season two spoilersI was going to say that HBO's True Blood is one of my favorite new shows this fall, but looking back on the season, I'd have to say it's my favorite, with Fringe as a close second.

HBO continues to churn out some great shows, and True Blood is no exception. Season one will be available on DVD May 12, 2009, with season two premiering that month, as well. I'm not sure how I'll hold out until then!

The vampire thriller earned a Golden Globe nod today for Outstanding Drama Series, and creator Alan Ball (who also helmed Six Feet Under), dropped a few hints about what fans might expect in season two.

His comments contain a few spoilers, so I'll put them after the jump, in case you haven't finished watching season one yet.

Who wants to be a mistress of the dark?

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 17th 2006 3:03PM
ElviraElvira (aka Cassandra Peterson) is teaming up with the producers of American Idol and The Weakest Link to create a reality show where they will find someone to take over the role of Elvira on TV, in movies, and personal appearances.

This could actually be great. Can you imagine the people showing up for auditions? People dressed like Elvira and Dracula and Frankenstein and superheroes and zombies. People who scare you, and you're not quite sure what they'll do. Actually, it sounds a lot like the American Idol auditions.

American Dad: Finances with Wolves

by Ryan j Budke, posted Jan 30th 2006 8:35PM
Ever wondered what Klaus the goldfish would look like as a black man? Neither did I, but I had never really been posed that question before. I think if someone asked me that I would have wondered... Well, whether you've had those sick thoughts before or not, you got the answer to that question during last night's episode of American Dad. I have a feeling that American Dad is hitting it's stride, which is probably not a good thing. The show is going ok, but it's nothing spectacular, and far, far short of it's potential. It's always going to be the second banana to Family Guy. It's not a bad show by any means, but American Dad will never be as good as Family Guy. On with the show!
