  • It's been a long four years since "Friday Night Lights" went off the air, and ever since we've been waiting for Kyle Chandler to return to our television screens. Luckily, Netflix has come to our rescue: Chandler stars in their new thrilling drama "Bloodline," and we've got the show's trailer for you to check out above.

    In "Bloodline," Chandler plays one of a group of adult siblings who are all habouring their own problems and secrets -- which they've managed to keep under wraps until their estranged brother returns home unexpectedly. The original Netflix series also stars Linda Cardellini, Sam Shepard, Sissy Spacek, Chloe Sevigny, Ben Mendelsohn, Norbert Leo Butz, Jacinda Barrett, Jamie McShane, and Steven Pasquale.

    Check out the "Bloodline" poster below:


    "Bloodline" will be available to stream on Netflix on March 20, 2015.

  • Annoying Bearded Gingers Are Killing TV Sitcoms

    Updated 5:21 p.m. ET: This article has been corrected from its original version.


    It hasn’t been a great season for new sitcoms. Almost every new television comedy premiering in 2014 has been short-lived, given the axe after, at most, a single season – and, for most of them, after just a handful of episodes. Are audiences tiring of the sitcom format? Do people simply want the juicy, dark drama of shows like “Scandal” and “The Walking Dead” instead of taking half an hour to laugh? Have the networks forgotten how to market comedies to mainstream audiences?

    There are countless theories for why so many 2014 sitcoms have failed. But among several of these disappointing shows, there is one common thread: the annoying bearded ginger.

    Oh, how bearded gingers must have rejoiced when they saw the cast lists for some of 2014’s sitcoms. For so long, they had been mocked, maligned, and ignored by Hollywood, but now this new type of TV character had emerged. To see their kind represented on new

  • EXCLUSIVE: See a photo of Tyreese from 'The Walking Dead' mid-season finale


    It's hard to believe it's here already, but Sunday is the mid-season finale of "The Walking Dead." We don't yet know what will happen to Rick and his downtrodden group of survivors, but in the meantime, we have an exclusive photo of Chad Coleman (who plays Tyreese) from this Sunday's episode.

    OK, so the photo doesn't give us a ton of clues, but judging by the look on Tyreese's face, it's not all sunshine and puppies. Although there could be zombie puppies. Which would be adorable and terrifying.

    So what's going to happen? Watch the latest episode of "Walking Dead Ahead" to refresh your memory of what's happened so far and what we might expect:

    The mid-season finale of "The Walking Dead" airs Sunday, Nov. 30 at 9 p.m. ET on AMC.

  • BREAKING NEWS: 'Gilmore Girls' is on Netflix Canada starting today

    Gilmore Girls begins streaming on Netflix Canada on Oct. 10.Gilmore Girls begins streaming on Netflix Canada on Oct. 10.

    We Canucks were heartbroken to learn last month that "Gilmore Girls" would stream on Netflix U.S. but not Netflix Canada.

    But good news, Canada! Now, Yahoo Canada can exclusively confirm that beginning Friday, Oct. 10 at 9 a.m. ET, all seven seasons of the beloved family drama will be streaming on Netflix Canada as well! Hooray!

    As we all know, "Gilmore Girls" starred Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel as the quick-thinking, faster-talking mother-daughter duo of Stars Hollow. From 2000 to 2007, viewers fell in love with the super-close Gilmores as well as their quirky neighbours, good-looking love interests, and even with the judgmental Emily and Richard Gilmore.

    Could there be a better beginning to the Thanksgiving weekend? Sorry, family, but we'll be curled up on the couch, binge-watching all 153 episodes of "Gilmore Girls."

  • Which 'Big Shiny Tunes' album is the best?

    MuchMusic released 14 Big Shiny Tunes compilations from 1996 to 2009.MuchMusic released 14 Big Shiny Tunes compilations from 1996 to 2009.

    For any Canadian who went through adolescence in the late 1990s and early 2000s, the “Big Shiny Tunes” albums were vital. In our pre-iTunes world, the compilation albums were the best way of gaining access to the year’s most popular “alternative” music -- your only other options were to buy the whole album of every band you liked (not cost-effective), taping songs off the radio (you’d get the DJs speaking over the start of the songs and it just wasn’t the same), or obsessively watching the MuchMusic Countdown (which... we all did anyway). There were 14 “Big Shiny Tunes” albums released between 1996 and 2009 (plus two installments of “Big Shiny ‘90s” and one “Big Shiny ‘80s”), so it’s likely that every Canadian currently in their 20s to mid-30s considers at least one of the “BST” albums to be the soundtrack of their high school experience.

    But ask people which “BST” album is the best, and that’s where the debate starts.

    Personally, I think “Big Shiny Tunes 2” is the clear winner. When

  • Norm MacDonald shares touching story about his first time meeting Robin Williams

    In the wake of Robin Williams's tragic, untimely death, countless celebrities have spoken up about their love for the brilliant comedian. One of the most touching stories so far came from former "Saturday Night Live" star Norm MacDonald, who took to Twitter to recount the first time he ever met Williams, when they were both appearing on "Letterman."

  • WARNING: This video contains footage that may be disturbing to some viewers.

    Netflix's thrilling supernatural drama "Hemlock Grove" releases its entire second season today, and judging by this behind-the-scenes featurette, they've really upped the ante when it comes to their horrifying special effects. We've never been so scared -- and yet fascinated -- by werewolves before!

    Creating a realistic werewolf transformation on screen can be a daunting task, but in this exclusive video, we see how "Hemlock Grove's" special effects team gets the job done. We've seen some hilariously bad werewolves in our time (sorry, "Teen Wolf"), but we have to say, "Hemlock Grove" definitely gets it right when it comes to terror and the gross-out factor. No wonder the effects team was nominated for an Emmy last year!

    Season 2 of "Hemlock Grove" is streaming on Netflix now.

    WARNING: This post contains spoilers for the season 2 finale of "Orphan Black."

    Another season of “Orphan Black” has come to an end, and there are now more clones than we can shake a stick at. So Mark’s a clone, huh? And there’s another little Sarah-ish clone running (er, hobbling) around? Plus, Helena’s off with the army (dammit, Paul!), Cosima’s still sick, Rachel’s got an eye patch in her future, and Sarah… well, Sarah’s just dandy.

    Kristian Bruun is with us for the final time for this year, recapping the clones’ adventures and ranking their performances. Plus, we put together the clones’ season-long scores and determine which one came out on top!

    YAHOO CANADA: For the last time this season, let’s rank some clones.
    KRISTIAN BRUUN: Do we need to do two clone rankings now?

    YC: Oh, geez, with the Mark clones? That’s too many. Let’s save the dude-clone rankings for next year. That’s too confusing.
    KB: That’s fair.

    YC: A lot of people assumed that if there were other clones, it was going

    Well, hello Donnie! This week, we saw everyone’s favourite monitor finally gain some self-confidence and put everyone in their place. (In Alison’s case, that place was on top of the freezer – yowza!) Where has this guy been all this time, huh?

    Donnie aside, there were still plenty of cloning shenanigans in this week’s episode – Cosima worked to cure her illness, Helena got burning mad at the Proletheans, Sarah stupidly trusted Dyad (come on, Sarah), and Rachel took advantage (because of course she did). Never have we been so glad to have Kristian “Dapper Donnie” Bruun himself here to recap how each of the clones performed and give the inside scoop on “Orphan Black.”

    YAHOO CANADA: This was an… interesting episode.
    KRISTIAN BRUUN: This is one of my favourite episodes, I think. It’s got everything. It was tough to rank the clones this week.

    YC: Everybody was pretty awesome except for Cosima, but she’s sick, so that’s understandable.
    KB: I’d say Sarah didn’t have the best week, either. In
