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.

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.

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.

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.

Exciting news for “Boardwalk Empire” fans – Jeffrey Wright will join the show for its fourth season next year as a series regular. He'll be playing “Valentin Narcisse, Doctor of Divinity, philanthropist, student of culture and the man who runs Harlem.” So he’s a character with a pretty impressive CV, and it's some nice casting for a show that continues to cast respected character actors. Wright recently finished work on “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” where he played the notable character from the books, Beetee.

George Lucas Confirms Negotiations For Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher & Harrison Ford For 'Star Wars: Episode 7'
So, let's just recap where we're at. In February, we saw a lot of chatter start surfacing about the original "Star Wars" cast returning for "Star Wars: Episode 7" with Harrison Ford reportedly confirmed, Carrie Fisher seemingly saying she was back too (though her rep now says she was joking) while Mark Hamill stated he actually hadn't signed yet. All of this talk was further buoyed when more news surfaced that said the trio were indeed coming back, and the plot for 'Episode 7' would center on their children. In short, there has been a lot of signs pointing in the direction they'll be back, but not much in the way of official word. Well, George Lucas himself has now commented.

Waiting for “Mad Men” to return is probably about as tedious and dispiriting as being married to Pete Campbell. After a juggernaut fifth season that pretty much benched the rest of non-“Breaking Bad” television, we’ve been laboring through a small-screen dry spell with only Lena Dunham to keep the party alive (a smooth bit of scheduling from HBO that ensured “Girls” an unwavering spotlight).

Even though we've seen films like “Milk” and “Brokeback Mountain” succeed with audiences, studios are still wary of gay-leaning movies. Just ask Steven Soderbergh, who was told by major studios that "Behind The Candelabra" was "too gay" before he found at home for it at HBO.
