As Disney showed earlier this week with the purchase Lucasfilm, it's all about branding, merchandising and leveraging properties so they keep generating revenue as long as possible. And that's no less true at the other major studios that continue to pursue tentpoles that can be sequelized, spun off, packaged in Happy Meals and more. All of which brings us to "How To Train Your Dragon."

As great as HBO generally is, even they are prone to boneheaded moves, and when they decided to cancel the wickedly funny and charming "Bored to Death" after its third season, we were heartbroken. A faint glimmer of hope appeared over the summer when Ted Danson revealed that there was movement brewing for a potential 90-minute movie. And now, according to the actor, things are definitely closer to coming together.

One of the biggest TV events of 2013 -- besides the final season of "Breaking Bad" -- will be the hugely anticipated return of "Arrested Development." Fans have been tracking the movement of the show ever since it was canceled by Fox. First, there was a lot of chatter about a potential movie, but coming first will be a ten episode (or so) season that will apparently precede a feature, serving as the "first act." Essentially, there is a lot more Bluth family on the way.

Since leading the ill-fated Mike Judge-helmed “Idiocracy” in 2006, Luke Wilson hasn’t had a high-profile gig -- even something like “Middle Men” barely hit theaters -- but now the actor has snatched a role in the Black List-approved “A Many Splintered Thing.” First-time director Justin Reardon will helm the film, described as being in the same spirit of “Amelie” and “(500) Days Of Summer.” Wilson will appear alongside a talented ensemble that includes Anthony Mackie, Aubrey Plaza, Philip Baker Hall, Topher Grace and Giovanni Ribisi with Chris Evans and Michelle Monaghan as the leads in the the story of a man (Evans) who has given up on love, until he meets an engaged woman (Monaghan) at a charity dinner, by posing as a philanthropist. He pretends to be her platonic friend, all while trying to win her for himself, away from a man who doesn't like going on dates.

Family Takes Center Stage In ‘Boardwalk Empire’s ‘Sunday Best’ (Season 3, Episode #7)

The midway point of “Boardwalk Empire” suddenly came explosively alive, especially in the fifth episode, “You’d Be Surprised.” An unsuccessful assassination was attempted on the hostile and unpredictably bad-for-business gangster Gyp Rosetti (Bobby Cannavale) by Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi) and Arnold Rothestein’s (Michael Stuhlbarg) men, and Washington is finally trying to take accountability for the failings of the Volstead Act (national prohibition). These after effects are still rippling outward, but the curiously involving “Sunday Best” takes a sharp detour from these plot points, which will rule the rest of the season, in favor of a quieter, character-driven episode that lets all of its players interact. And while we’ve complained in the past about a lack of momentum, this chamber piece is “Boardwalk Empire" at its best -- be patient, as good things are coming to those that wait.
