If you're a fan of "Drive," you may be familiar with the bands who delivered some of the neon-slicked tunes — Chromatics ("Tick Of The Clock") and Desire ("Under Your Spell") — but you might not know the name behind them: Johnny Jewel. He co-wrote those two songs, produced some of the other key tracks and was pretty much instrumental in providing the sound (along with Cliff Martinez's score) that became part of they key textures of the film. And it looks like Ryan Gosling really appreciated his work as well.

Wizard Of Oz Timur Bekmambetov
From bullet curving assassins to presidential vampire hunters, Timur Bekmambetov has covered a wide range of novelty characters. The director, who got his big break with the fantasy-themed “Night Watch” series, has never been the type to shy away from an outlandish idea. That’s why it’s not a huge surprise that he's is teaming up with SyFy, the house built from outlandish ideas.

Young Doctor's Notebook Jon Hamm Daniel Radcliffe
C'mon, surely. The picture above was one that passed across our retinas around about a year ago, and for many it came blissfully free of context. For those of us in the U.K., however, it was actually followed by a TV miniseries, “A Young Doctor's Notebook,” about the experiences of a country doctor in revolutionary Russia. Jon Hamm played the older version of Daniel Radcliffe's young doctor, looking back on the experiences of his callow self.

Move over "Sharknado 2," Syfy has something even more compelling on the horizon that isn't just a dumb social media sensation taken too far. The network is ready to make cult fans of Terry Gilliam's "12 Monkeys" either excited or angry or both, as they are now preparing to re-launch the movie as a brand new TV series.

Recap: 'The Newsroom' Season 2, Episode 2 'The Genoa Tip'

If last week's premiere was the small pebble, rolling down the mountain of the second season of "The Newsroom," you can start seeing the eventual massive snowball forming with the second episode. This new approach from Aaron Sorkin, with one large news story anchoring the narrative, is an interesting touch, but it doesn't get in the way of his usual combination of lefty liberal political posturing, speech-ifying, genuine drama and truly shameful emotional manipulation. And this week's "The Genoa Tip" has it in spades with a finale that nearly tips over into offensive bad taste.

NBC has been a punching bag lately, and not without good reason. The one-time kings of network ratings have tumbled from their dominance of Must See TV Thursday to pretty much For The Love Of God Watch Us On Any Night Please TV. And while NBC's past found them bringing massive, game-changing comedies like "Seinfeld," "Cheers," and "Friends" to air, is cutting-edge drama going to define them moving forward? This year alone they defied all expectations and impressed both critics and audiences with "Hannibal," a richer than expected and very fresh take on the character. And next year, will "Believe" join its ranks?

If there is one thing "Game Of Thrones" fans have learned over three seasons: no one is safe. It would be best advised if you're newly checking out the HBO smash show that you don't get too attached to any particular character, because they could be dead before you know it. And we're not even going to get into The Red Wedding.... In short, the time could run out on any character at any moment, but now it's time to take a pause and remember those that have fallen before the next season of "Game Of Thrones."

If you had said a few years ago that one of the biggest ratings behemoths on cable would be a series about zombies based on a comic book, people would have said you were crazy. But defying the odds, creative shakeups and some dips in quality, "The Walking Dead" has lurched into being one of the biggest things on TV. It's certainly a jewel in the AMC crown and the fourth season is looming, and as a treat to those in San Diego -- or for those of us sitting comfortably at home -- the network has dropped a sprawling four-minute trailer for the new season.

Well, while die hard "The Simpsons" fans have already been told they're going to have to wait at least 10-15 years for another big screen outing, the show continues to soldier on, recently wrapping up its 24th season. But it looks like the show is still trying to surprise, and in a move we thought would never happen, it's going to crossover with another Fox animated hit, that owes its success to the Springfield family.
