Karl Urban Minka Kelly JJ Abrams TV Robot Cops
We’ll never be able to comprehend just how he finds the time, but every week it sounds like we’re reading about another J.J Abrams project, so it's very easy to lose track of them all. One of his TV projects -- which formerly went by the title of “Inhuman,” but is now going simply by “Human” – is busy casting its pilot for Fox at the moment, and it looks like Karl Urban will be joining the already-cast Michael Ealy as one of the leads.

Ever since being taken off the air in 2006, fans of "Veronica Mars" have been clamoring, calling and pleading for its return. A couple of years back, Warner Bros. even went so far as to set up an email address to handle the requests they were getting, and now it looks like the one shot that devotees of the program has been asking for is here.

When considering a stay at the “Bates Motel,” it’s probably worth remembering that couple who were looking for a quiet night at the start of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show.” Judging by its Gothic ambiance and mentally unstable management, teased in a new 6-minute clip from the upcoming A&E drama, the place is just ripe for this brand of freakish escalation.

DVD Review: Missing ‘House Of Cards’? Excellent ‘Borgen’ Season 1 Will Keep You Satisfied

If it isn’t already happening, Danish television is about to have a moment. AMC’s remake of the “The Killing” was canceled, swiftly brought back, and is now shooting its third season. HBO is in the midst of remaking the popular series “The Bridge” and NBC already snagged the rights to the political drama “Borgen.” It’s arguably the hottest of the three shows at the moment -- Stephen King named it as the best television he watched 2012 (the aforementioned Danish shows above made the top ten as well) -- and coming in the wake of Netflix’s tremendously well received “House Of Cards,” those looking to slake their thirst on political drama would be highly recommended to track down “Borgen,” which is arguably even more dense and layered than David Fincher and Kevin Spacey’s program.

It has just been a few months since Disney bought the "Star Wars" franchise, and it’s only a matter of time before we receive a total onslaught of new "Star Wars" films and TV shows. The new trilogy is already coming, there’s a possibility of spinoff films, and there’s been talk of a live action TV series. Well if that’s still not enough new Star Wars for you, how about a brand new animated TV series?

You would think for a show that revels in the bygone advertising era fuelled by cigarette smoke and sex, "Mad Men" would've had the lightning bolt to maybe grab someone from that time and do a little artwork for them. But for whatever reason, it's taken them until season six, but the results speak for themselves.

Recap: Charlie & Marnie Spin Their Wheels As The Jim & Pam Of 'Girls' In Subpar Outing

How do you solve a problem like Marnie? If you're a writer for "Girls," it's currently a difficult one to puzzle out. The idea of having her and Hannah switch roles, with Marnie's life falling apart while her (former) best friend begins to have a taste of success, is a great one. And bringing to light some of the unsavory and unlikeable aspects of her personality to add a little of grime to the pretty face and fabulous dresses, is a nice touch too. But outside of that, Lena Dunham and co. haven't really figured out what to do with Marnie this season. Allison Williams has been more than game to follow her character on a downward spiral, from her brief drunken sexual encounter with Elijah to her misguided relationship with Booth. But at some point, this on again/off again thing with ex-boyfriend Charlie (Christopher Abbott) has got to end.

Before news of a fourth season of “Arrested Development” came out, there was the fervent anticipation of an ensemble film. Now that the new season is almost upon us, the film still remains the more talked-about prize. Creator Mitch Hurwitz, Jeffrey Tambor and Will Arnett came to SXSW over the weekend to discuss the film and, most importantly, to explain the circumstances surrounding the future of the show.

NBC is carefully stringing us along, hoping to hold our attention until “Hannibal” premieres, and has most recently dropped two new promos for the Mads Mikkelsen, Hugh Dancy and Laurence Fishburne-starring series. Brief as the new spots may be, they deliver on the promise of luxuriously clever gore that comes with the Dr. Lecter brand.
