• It's here, it's finally here! After what felt like months of waiting (just kidding -- the show ended in 2007, so it's been years), we finally have the first official moving images of the upcoming "Veronica Mars" movie.

    Far from the first "trailer" (in which everybody just thanks the fans and friends who Kickstarted this project to begin with), this one gives us the sweet, sweet action we've been accustomed to as "Veronica Mars" diehards. Yes, for two minutes and 12 seconds, we (the fans) go from cool, calm, sophisticated adults to Principal Skinner stumbling upon Ralph Wiggum's "Star Wars" diorama. (Though instead of shouting "Chewie! Lando!" we're yelling "Krysten Ritter! Max Greenfield!) Yes, the gang's all here.

    So what do you think? Has the "Veronica Mars" legacy been upheld? Would we have been as satisfied with just this trailer (since it really delivers exactly the dynamic we left off with at the series' abrupt close)? Or perhaps more importantly: should Veronica (Kristen Bell)

  • It's a new dawn, it's a new day, it's a new life -- and that means you can finally start focusing on what's really important: television.

    Now, I understand how busy you've been. We've all been busy. The holidays are a joyous time, but they require events, dinner parties, friends and family, so your closest pal of all (TV) gets neglected from December to January. However, with a new year upon us, it's time to shift your focus and get back in the saddle. But with countless TV series to watch, it can be overwhelming -- which is why we've narrowed it down to five. Happy New Year to you, too.

    1. "Sherlock" (PBS)
    By no means is this 2010 BBC series "new," but it's been two years since Sherlock (Benedict Cumberbatch) took "The Reichenbach Fall" at the hands of Moriarty (Andrew Scott), so after 24 months of waiting, theorizing and freaking out, we finally get to find out how he survived. But while season 3 premiered in the U.K. on January 1, we North Americans don't get it on Masterpiece until

    On the Internet, as in life, it's important to be yourself. Yet for many celebs, the concept of constructively using social media to build on and share their personalities seems to be a totally alien concept.

    But there's a handful of TV stars who treat social-media sites as the interactive and engaging conversation platforms they can be. We're giving these ladies and gents the shoutout they deserve: By keeping things funny, authentic, and generally "getting it," they've earned your follow in the new year.

  • Tonight marks the end of 2013 -- a year of endings ("Breaking Bad," "Enlightenment"), beginnings ("House of Cards"), and of shows that just keep on going ("The Big Bang Theory"). We could reflect on them, sure, or we could just cut to the chase.

    Say what?

    We're going to go through our favourite TV characters' New Year's resolutions because this is exactly what New Year's is all about. (Exactly.)

    While we have no proof that any of these resolutions are what the characters have actually vowed, we've thought long and hard to come up with suggestions for the New Year.

    Warning: this post contains spoilers.

    Character: Walter White (Bryan Cranston)
    TV show: "Breaking Bad" (Yes, we know it's over.)
    Resolution: To come back to life. Because we deserve this and honestly, if you found out it was all a dream so he could join "Better Call Saul," would you really be that upset? Well, yes. But Heisenberg lives, and don't take this away from me.

    Character: Adam Sackler (Adam Driver)
    TV show: "Girls"

    Even Walt Disney World isn't immune to "Downton Abbey" fever.

    "Downton" star Elizabeth McGovern (Lady Cora) received a royal welcome Sunday while visiting the Orlando resort's Epcot theme park — and even posed for a cute spoof of the "Downton" cast photo.

    McGovern, dressed a lot more comfortably than she does as the Countess of Grantham in jeans and a sweater, stood in front of a faux castle in the park's United Kingdom pavilion alongside Disney employees in period garb... including a very dapper Goofy in top hat and tails.

    Here's the official "Downton Abbey" Season 4 cast photo, for comparison:

    Carnival Film and Television Limited/Masterpiece

    McGovern seems to have Cora's coy smile down pat, even when not in costume. And though co-stars Hugh Bonneville and Maggie Smith didn't join her at Disney, at least she gets to stand in front this time!

    Plus, Goofy makes a dashing Mr. Carson. Although we wouldn't trust that klutz to bring us our morning tea without

  • This undated image released by A&E shows Phil Robertson, flanked by his sons Jase Robertson, left, and Willie Robertson from the popular series "Duck Dynasty." Phil Robertson was suspended for disparaging comments he made to GQ magazine about gay people but was reinstated by the network on Friday, Dec. 27. In a statement Friday, A&E said it decided to bring Robertson back to the reality series after discussions with the Robertson family and "numerous advocacy groups." (AP Photo/A&E, Zach Dilgard)

    It's a late Christmas gift for "Duck Dynasty" fans: Just nine days after placing star Phil Robertson on indefinite suspension following his controversial remarks in an interview with GQ, A&E has reversed its decision and reinstated the patriarch, effective immediately.

    And since no filming for the show has taken place in those nine days, Phil won't miss a single episode.

  • Phil and Kay Robertson (D Dipasupil/Getty Images)Just because Phil Robertson is still indefinitely suspended from the show that made him famous doesn't mean he can't get into the holiday spirit.

    The 67-year-old patriarch, who made headlines last week when an interview with GQ magazine was released in which he made some incendiary anti-gay remarks, celebrated Christmas by putting a ring on it — and by that we mean he finally gave his wife, Miss Kay, a sparkler after a mere five decades of marriage.

    Better late than never, we always say.

    It was Sadie Robertson who broke the news, tweeting a photo of her happy grandparents showing off the new bling. In the pic, a beaming, Christmas-sweater-clad Kay mugs for the camera, while her better half points at the rock.

    Yet even in the midst of the holiday season, drama continues to swirl around the "Duck Dynasty" family and the future of

  • "Sleepy Hollow" (NBC)

    Continuing my Christmastime period of “nothing new is on TV, so I may as well catch up on stuff I missed,” I spent the last few evenings becoming familiar with NBC’s “Sleepy Hollow,” which is far better and more charming than it has any right to be. But this isn’t an article about how good surprisingly good “Sleepy Hollow” is, because I got distracted by something that happened in one of the early episodes.

    Yes, one moment in particular caught my eye, a moment when one character has to cast a spell that requires human blood. What does he do? He slices open the palm of his hand with a knife.

    Augh! Why do they always slice open their palm?!

  • Welcome to TV Rewind, in which we look back at iconic episodes of beloved shows and try to determine if they still hold up today. This week, we look at the episode of "The Simpsons" in which Bart shoplifts and breaks Marge's heart -- and ours, too.


    Show: "The Simpsons"
    "Marge Be Not Proud," Season 7, Episode 11

    Plot summary: It's Christmas 1995, and Bart wants the only video game that matters: Bonestorm. (And if his parents don't buy it for him, they can go to hell.) Unfortunately, Marge refuses to buy it, and like all ten-year-old boys, Bart pouts, complains, and goes so far as to reject his mom's nightly tradition of the "Tuck-In Express" -- because remember, at age ten, he's not a baby anymore and is all grown up now. (Which, in Bart's defence, is kind of a valid point, since Kevin McAllister survived New York all by himself at the same age.)

    So, filled with resentment, Bart heads to the Try-N-Save the next day and makes a snap decision: he shoplifts Bonestorm because Jimbo Jones told him to. He grabs the game, tucks it under his jacket and... gets caught on his way out by Donald Wilson "Don" Brodka, who leaves a message on the Simpsons' answering machine and warns Bart that if Bart ever returns, he'll be arrested.
