NEW YORK (October 13, 2013) — With the third season of Person Of Interest already building tension, the POI Team might be adjusting to some new faces and cases, but the threats are just as dangerous as ever. In its return engagement with New York Comic Con, Person Of Interest (Tuesdays 10/9c on CBS) thrilled fans with its cast and producer Q&A, featuring an intense clip from the show’s upcoming 10/22 episode, “PA3ROBOP.”
Appearing in the show’s panel session, POI stars Jim Caviezel (Reese), Taraji P. Henson (Carter), Kevin Chapman (Fusco), Sarah Shahi (Shaw) and Amy Acker (Root) joined executive producer Greg Plageman to take a look under the hood of the Machine and unveil an exclusive, preview clip of footage from the show’s upcoming fifth episode, “PA3ROBOP” which airs on October 22.
The clips features Taraji P. Henson as badass Detective / Officer Joss Carter. She will make you her bitch.
Seriously, Carter is one of the best
female characters on TV.
When it was first announced that fan-favorite writer/producers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (Star Trek and Fringe) were planning a Sleepy Hollow TV series, set in contemporary day, reactions were mixed – with many potential viewers wondering how the story of Ichabod Crane and the Headless Horseman could successfully compete in the modern TV landscape. However, week after week, the show has maintained a steady audience and garnered generally positive word of mouth – with some truly creative (and freaky) supernatural story lines. Can the series sustain its lofty mythology, and subsequent viewership, to reach its goal of seven years (in the show’s timeline) worth of material?( Collapse )( Collapse )( Collapse )
Sleepy Hollow airs Monday @9pm on Fox.
Live artist Louise Orwin has created a show—Pretty Ugly—based on her research into the phenomenon of teenage girls discussing body issues on social media.
"OK, guys, this is a serious matter… I want to know whether I'm pretty or not," says a teenage girl with a high-pitched voice and heavily made-up eyes going by the name of girlsite101.
She goes on to explain with pageant participant peppiness that her classmates say she is pretty and she "wins homecoming queen every year," but that she's not convinced. The only way to settle the situation is to ask the impartial commenters of YouTube.( Collapse )
Orwin's show, Pretty Ugly, follows the trail of her research, looking at the relationships Becky, Amanda, and Baby have with their commenters and the people who messaged them. "Conversations with trolls, friendships… it also covers all the creepy side of it," she explains.
The show starts with Orwin asking the audience the central question: do they think she is pretty or ugly. "I need to show how irrelevant that question should be. Would you go up to a person on the street and ask them that? I am trying to make this anonymous world into a live face-to-face world."
Orwin is particularly struck by the way digital media is changing the way we perceive ourselves and each other. "And what does it mean for feminism today?"
When she compares her own teenage years to those being lived out today, she says she remembers getting to a certain age when people were starting to talk about the pressures of the media, which was selling unattainable images of perfection and beauty. "But it was about the media. Now if you look on Tumblr, YouTube, Twitter, it's not the media, but the teenage girls themselves perpetuating this myth. They are resharing these images, reblogging. There's always going to be peer pressure but I think [social media] makes these issues worse."
The answer lies not in getting parents to block access to certain websites; "it's about changing attitudes toward things and teaching girls to take responsibility for themselves online."
Prettu Ugly will be performed at the Camden People's Theatre from Oct 23 to Nov 5.
tl;dr she posts YT videos posing as 15 year old teenage girls asking if they're pretty or ugly and then uses the hateful comments for shock value. ETA: link to her website which has the videos ETA: sorry those the videos that inspired her, not the artist.
Idek what tags to use for this hot mess.
Personally I'm far from thrilled, I know that pretty much no one will agree with me but one of the highlights of the New 52 has been her non-existence. I guess I'm happy for her fans (except not really). I hope this new series can introduce other awesome MIA characters like Helena B., Renee Montoya or Cass Cain.

Can we just say everybody in Hollywood will guest-star in "Community" Season 5 at this point? In one single episode, Paget Brewster ("Criminal Minds"), Brie Larson ("United States of Tara"), Robert Patrick, Ben Folds and Kumail Nanjiani will appear.
One of these actors is actually reprising a role. Brie Larson appeared once before on "Community" as Rachel, a quirky friend of Abed's. "Things have been introduced with Abed that we've never really revisited, so it's nice to see something that we go back to -- especially with Brie, because she's great," Danny Pudi told TVLine.
The episode in which Larson appears also is the one that follows Troy's (Donald Glover) departure. Will having a girl around ease Abed's loss?
If not, there will at least be a lot of others hanging out to distract Abed. The huge guest cast is coming for a midterms school dance -- many of them might just be cameos that come and go in passing. But it's not like there's a shortage of guest stars for the rest of Season 5. Jonathan Banks ("Breaking Bad"), Nathan Fillion ("Castle") and Katie Leclerc ("Switched at Birth") are all slated to appear at least once on "Community."
There is currently no return date for "Community" on NBC.
