Girls
As much as Lena Dunham pushed the enveloped narratively and sylistically throughout the second season of "Girls," for a show that celebrates the messiness and uncertainty of young adulthood, the finale wrapped things up in an all too neat bow. But for those worried that headed into season three, the edges might be smoothed down, with the stories becoming more broadly accessible, the sight of Jessa (Jemima Kirke) with the face between the legs of another woman in rehab will allay those fears. But we're getting ahead of ourselves.

With his hands already full with the recently released "Machete Kills" and the forthcoming "Sin City: A Dame To Kill For," Robert Rodriguez still found time in 2013 to work on another project, the TV series version of his 1996 genre mashup, "From Dusk Till Dawn." And less than a year after it was first announced, we already have the first teaser trailer giving us a peek at what he's put together. And no surprise here, it's pure pulp.

Girls
This weekend, the third season of "Girls" kicks off with two brand new episodes, and while you'll get our full recaps on Monday, we'll just say this: Lena Dunham hasn't missed a step.

Simpsons, Hayao Miyazaki & Studio Ghibli
The Simpsons is curious show. The longest running American sitcom in history (25 seasons long), its relevancy and quality dropped off hard after season 10, but in recent years it’s made a bit of a comeback. And certainly they’ve been more relevant than ever in the movie world with recent impressive tributes like the “Treehouse of Horror XXIV” opener recently directed by Guillermo del Toro. Well, they’re at it again.

Zoe Saldana
After their live rendition of “The Sound of Music” proved to be a ratings hit last month, NBC hopes their next remake of a classic ‘60s Hollywood film can be just as successful. The network first announced a “Rosemary’s Baby” remake last July, but we hadn’t heard much about it until Agnieszka Holland (“Europa, Europa”) signed on as director a few weeks ago. Now, it seems they have found their Rosemary, and luckily, it’s not Carrie Underwood.

After the three-hour thematic tone poem that was “Cloud Atlas," you could imagine the Wachowskis were close to capping off the “everyone is connected” angle, but in their subsequent shift to television it seems they’ve only begun. Their project “Sense8” first burst onto our radars in 2012, with "Babylon 5" creator J. Michael Straczynski attached and a natural veil of secrecy surrounding it. But after Netflix agreed to release the 10-episode series to its subscribers, we’ve finally got some concrete hints of what to expect later this year.
