Separated at Birth: ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK’s Lori Petty and Ellen Degeneres


On account of our inexplicable need to point out actors who remind us of, well, other actors comes the latest instalment of our popular ongoing “Separated at Birth” series. This week’s edition is inspired by our current obsession with Netflix’s much-improved third season of ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK. Is it just us… or does new inmate Lolly played by original BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER Lori Petty not look like a dead ringer for television’s Ellen Degeners? Discuss.

The Big Tease: WGN Releases Your First Look at MANHATTAN Season 2


If for no other reason than we devoured the first season of WGN’s MANHATTAN (Thanks CraveTV), is thrilled to present your first look at season 2. Returning October 2015 (Why so long WGN America/!), season two will ask the question, “How much evil does it take to do good.” The series, created by Sam Shaw and directed by Emmy Award®-winning director Thomas Schlamme, follows the tangled lives of the residents of Los Alamos, New Mexico, as they race to detonate the first nuclear bomb in history. Locked away in the world’s most secretive city, the scientists and their families surrender their freedoms, compromise their marriages, and even sacrifice their sanity to end one bloody war and usher in another — the Cold War waiting just over the atomic horizon — all while foreign spies and a climate of paranoia threaten to destroy the project from within.
