While the movie world will be consumed with Oscar talk in January, on the small screen the conversation will turn to Lena Dunham and "Girls." Her hit show returns to HBO for a second season less than a year after the first made some major waves, and earned a small bit of controversy too. And that likely won't end with round two.

“The Walking Dead” can’t catch a break. After losing Frank Darabont as showrunner after the first season, the show carried on with a lower budget (and a new writing staff) under the tutelage of Glen Mazzara, growing in viewership (it's now the biggest drama on TV, networks included) and, by most accounts, in quality too. Despite maintaining the same level of viewership, in fact the mid-season finale had a record high of viewers tuning in, and a fourth season renewal, the zombie show is once again without a showrunner, with Deadline reporting that Mazzara has left the show after creative differences with network AMC.

It's hard to argue that in 2012, there were few people on television (Charlie Sheen aside perhaps, but for different reasons) who were as talked about as "Girls" writer/actor/producer Lena Dunham. The brainchild behind HBO's breakout hit show, Dunham has had a tremendous year all around and Time Magazine has taken notice. They've named her The Coolest Person Of The Year.

As if we weren’t already excited enough about the revival of “Arrested Development,” Netflix has gone and made sure we’ll remember just how excited we are on a regular basis while browsing the site. The cult sitcom, which aired on Fox between 2003 and 2006, was always great at peppering the show with gags so there were always plenty of in-jokes for fans to love. Well, full credit to Netflix for exploiting those and peppering them across the site.

Scottish outfit Mogwai have been turning it up and blowing your hair back for nearly two decades now, with moody, loud and intense post-rock of the highest order. While their songs have found their way onto countless soundtracks, the band themselves, curiously, haven't done much in the way of scoring. Most notably, they tuned up the abstract documentary "Zidane: A 21st Century Portrait," worked with Clint Mansell on "The Fountain" and also apparently worked on a random 1997 version of "A Picture Of Dorian Gray." That said, their latest marriage of sound and visual seems perfectly fitting.

While as a producer, Ridley Scott has been behind countless projects on TV, as a director, he hasn't gone behind the camera for anything on the small screen in over four decades. You would have go back to a 1969 episode of the show "The Troublemakers" to find Scott's name on the episode "If He Hollers, Let Him Go." Well, it looks something has finally lured Scott to dip his toes back into the format where he first tested his skill.

First up, here's some trivia: Did you know that rapper T.I. was up for a part in "Iron Man 3"? "I was being considered for this one film," he told RapUp (via HitFix) "Now that it's over with, I can say it. 'Iron Man 3.' I was being considered for 'Iron Man 3' and it wasn't to be Iron Man, it was to be another character in the film but our schedules did not align and they had to do their little movie anyway...I told them go on ahead, I didn't want to get in their way." Thanks, T.I.
