Monday nights are looking a lot better for horror lovers like me, especially with A&E’s premiere of the Bates Motel created and written by Anthony Cipriano, directed by Tucker Gates, and produced by Carlton Cuse and Kerry Ehrin. Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore) and his mother, Norma Louise Bates (Vera Farmiga) are starting a new life after the death of Norman’s father. They have a motel to run in good old White Pine Bay. But this is not your normal family and this contemporary prequel to Alfred Hitchcock’s 1960 Hit Psycho, will allow us to explore why little Norman becomes a cold blooded killer. Meet me after the jump.
We’ve already taken one look at Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained here at Biff Bam Pop!, a few weeks ago by Emily McGuiness, but the flick is still doing well in the theaters, it’s garnered a few Oscar nominations, and folks are still talking about it, so it’s still relevant – why not let that hack Glenn Walker review it? The dirty deed is after the jump.

Usually when I’m writing about a game based on a movie for Mat Langford’s Gaming World, it’s bad news. Let’s face it…there aren’t many great movie/tv-based games out there. So when I discovered Dexter on the iOS, I wasn’t expecting anything mind-blowing. What I got however, was something completely surprising.
Breaking Bad is almost back, bitch. AMC has released an official trailer for Season 5, premiering on July 15th. HOLY CRAP THAT IS SO SOON! The :32 second promo is full of explosions, guns, money, and a new drug king. “We’re done when I say we’re done.” Has Walt gone full on Heisenberg? What have been your favourite moments of the past 4 seasons?

Weeds is officially coming to an end. EW.com announced that the series upcoming eighth season will be its last. Series creator Jenji Kohan says, “I’m so proud of what we do here and that it’s about a strong woman lead who’s really flawed. We get to do comedy right up against drama, which a lot of shows don’t get the opportunity to do.” The final season will quickly resolve this year’s assassination attempt cliffhanger, and fans can expect a time jump and a return to the suburbs. Beyond that, Kohan hasn’t yet decided how to conclude Nancy’s tale. “We wrack our brains every year for crazy cliffhangers and we’re trying to figure out how to top ourselves,” she says.
Tim Daly who plays Pete Wilder on Private Practice announced on Tuesday that Shonda Rhimes has not picked up his contract option for the ABC drama’s upcoming sixth (and likely final) season. In a post on his twitter page Daly explained, “Wonderful fans of PPP. Shonda informed my agent today that Pete wont be returning for season 6. It was a great 5 yrs. R.I.P. Pete Wilder.” I guess it’s not too much of a shocker. In the season finale, Pete was jailed for compassionately ending the life of a patient kept alive by machines. Personally I would’ve much rather seen Violet go. What do you Private Practice fans think about this?
