This is certainly the year of “Doctor Who.” Not only is 2013 the fiftieth anniversary of the celebrated British sci-fi television series, it is also the year the show has hit its height of popularity worldwide. With the traditional Christmas special just a day away, in which lead actor Matt Smith is replaced by the new Doctor Peter Capaldi, what better time to focus on a special last minute Holiday Gift Guide entry, Who’s 50: The 50 Doctor Who Stories to Watch Before You Die. Check it out, after the jump.
Everybody at Biff Bam Pop! is talking about Top Fives, so I guess it’s my turn. Put on your seat belts, because as the regular readers around here know already, my tastes are not normal. I liked Santa Claus and hated Dark Knight. It’s going to be a bumpy ride. Next, after the jump, my top fives in film, music, television, and comic books. Look out.
If you know me, you know I love TV. Choosing my Top Five favourite shows of 2012 was an impossible task for me and it was a list that has been changed and edited countless times. I have finally chosen the five shows that stood out for me the most in 2012. These five shows were the ones that consumed my life and kept me up at night. Please be careful when you read on as there may be some spoilers for those shows you have yet to watch. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!!
TV on DVD is my favourite gift to give during the Holiday season AND also to receive. It’s the perfect gift to give to someone when you don’t know what to get them. I’ve selected a few of my favourite options, but the sky is the limit when it comes to giving TV on DVD. It is the best feeling when someone calls you a week later dying to talk about the show that has taken over their life.

Biff Bam Pop reader and occasional contributor Leiki caught Sunday nights Emmy Awards from Australia, where she’s currently working on a new film. Here’s her take on television’s most glamorous night…or is it?
Award shows are pretty similar to each other. The Oscars are the biggest, and the Globes have an open bar, but otherwise, there’s a lot of the same stuff. Same red carpet questions, same people, same speeches. Critics of award shows think they should be spectacular and every review has this underwhelmed meh to it, but it’s designed to give out a large number of awards. There’s less room for funny in that task than you might think. At the Emmys Sunday night, when the last speech was played off with music, even host Jimmy Kimmel sputtered at the crowd’s negative reaction, “you guys want to stay for another hour?” But the funny that does happen, sticks out. More on this in a moment.
WARNING: The following post may contain spoilers on some of your favourite shows so please proceed at your own risk!
Ryan Murphy, co-creator of American Horror Story has spilled some information on the show’s second season location and characters. Murphy appeared at an Academy of Television Arts & Sciences event honoring the FX series on Wednesday and confirmed that it will be “set on the East Coast at an institution for the criminally insane that is run by Jessica [Lange].” The show also recently announced the casting of French actress Lizzie Brocheré, whose character was likened to Angelina Jolie’s hospitalized sociopath in Girl, Interrupted. Murphy also confirmed reports that Maroon 5 frontman and Voice judge Adam Levine had signed on for Season 2. “He’s a sexy guy so he needs to play a sexy guy, but the guy is different than who you think he would play,” Murphy shared. As previously reported, Zachary Quinto, Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson and Lily Rabe — who in Season 1 played Chad, Tate, psychic Billie Dean and doctor’s wife Nora — are set to return for Season 2 but as different characters according to TVLine.
