Happy Easter, everyone! May your baskets be full and your chocolate, dark and delicious. Remember, never actually eat the Peeps.

5. WonderCon Revealed Man of Steel Action Figures.

In advance of the June 14th Man of Steel release, WonderCon previewed DC Comics' action figures of Superman, General Zod, Jor-El and Faora. I find it amusing that Russell Crowe's likeness is the best captured; no one can overshadow the Crowe. In other Man of Steel news this week, rumor has it Lex Luthor will be making an appearance in the form of Mackenzie Gray ("Smallville, Iron Man: Armored Adventures, Fringe, Once Uppon a Time").


4. Robert Redford Discussed Joining Captain America: The Winter Soldier


Robert Redford confirmed he'll appear in the sequel as one of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s senior leaders (Pierce). The 76 year old actor said he's doing the film because it's "powerful" and "different"; "a new thing for him" and something he would loved to have seen when he was a kid. This will be Redford's first appearance in a comic/superhero film.


Also just cast was UFC Welterweight Champion and mixed martial artist Georges St-Pierre; he's in as Batroc the Leaper. Captain America: The Winter Soldier heads to theaters April 4th, 2014.

3. "Cosplay Piano" Debuted with "The Walking Dead" Theme.

Performance art takes on a different twist. Pianist Sonya Belosouva plays the powerful theme and the role of Rick Grimes in this first "Cosplay Piano" outing on Stan Lee's YouTube channel, "World of Heroes." There will be chills.

Meanwhile, Andrew Lincoln Warned Us "It's a Crazy Season Finale...Spoiler (swipe to see:) Twenty-Seven People Will Die."

Here's a preview of tonight's finale episode, "Welcome to the Tombs." I'm pretty sure (keep going back and forth in my head) I'll watch this finale, then my recording of the "Game of Thrones" premiere, since the Easter Television Bunnies have cruelly scheduled them both at 9 p.m. In which order will you watch?

A Spoiler-Filled Video About the Making of "This Sorrowful Life" Will Leave You Laughing and Crying (Again).

If you somehow haven't yet watched last week's episode, don't watch this video. If you're all caught up, you simply must. Michael Rooker and Norman Reedus are brilliant together.

2. Here's What I Presume to be the Last Promo Before the Show; "Game of Thrones: Revenge."

It's very short, but we're not above watching anything, are we? "Valar Dohaeris" premieres on HBO tonight.

1. I Died. The "Doctor Puppet" Killed Me.

Following up her adorable creation, "The Doctor Puppet Saves Christmas," animator Alisa Stern has created two new whimsical and sweet episodes that begin a "long story arc." that may include more, if not all, past Doctors. Watch "The Red X" first, then continue to "The Conjunction of Eleven," and see if you still live. I predict you shall lie down beside me, dead from the cuteness.

And If That Wasn't Enough to Set Your Cockles Asizzling, "Doctor Who" Announced the Return of a Couple Old Friends...


David Tennant and Billie Piper will join Matt Smith and Jenna Louise Coleman as part of the "Doctor Who" 50th Anniversary Celebration. I can't even imagine how glorious it will be to see Tennant and Smith together, but as I lay dead on the ground, I am trying. Is this not the best Easter weekend, EVAR?

Oh and wait, just one more thing! The brilliant and beloved actor John Hurt (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Alien, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows) will also be making an appearance in the 3-D 50th anniversary special. Are you dead yet?

A Girl's Guide to "Game of Thrones"!! | 5 Shows After Dark 3/31/13

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    1. Robert Redford needs to enbrace his inner silver fox, because the blond just doesn't do it when you're over 60.

    2. Doctor Puppet is adorable.

    3. I love the Doctor's new outfit. The longer coattails are more Doctory.

    4. Eccleston was never the Doctor for me. Rose was the star of his show, which I hated. Plus, he never looked Doctory. He looked like some bloke down at the pub in that pleather jacket and t-shirt.

    Darlin' if Robert Redford was that vain, the hair is probably not the first place he'd go. Dermal filler takes less time than a colorist before a cut and style.

    Fame costs, and right here is where you start paying. Cash or credit.

  • e jerry powell

    Okay, here's the thing:

    Walking Dead is about zombies. Re-animated corpses. An amazingly large portion of the cast (albeit most of them are stunt personnel and glorified background actors) are playing (un-)dead characters. So the idea that people die on that show is a relatively meaningless one, right?

  • I would love to see the titanium man-gerdle required to get Russell Crowe to look anything remotely like his action figure.

  • Enrique del Castillo

    No love for Christopher Eccleston? He was my first Doctor, the one that made me like Dr. Who

  • Me, too. In fact, I wish they'd go back to a loonier, relatively sexless Doctor. That's a big part of what I found special about Eccleston and what got me hooked on the series.

  • DataAngel

    I'd love to see him come back, but it's unlikely it'd be more than a clip from one of his episodes. Apparently he doesn't even really like talking about Doctor Who anymore. Breaks my heart, because I loved Eccleston before he was the Doctor and there's just not enough of him on my TV.

  • Kate at June

    Huh? There's been no announcement on whether he's returning or not...

  • If only Russell T. Davies were here. He'd find a way to ham-fist him back onto our screens.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    He probably won't. I believe he and the showrunners had some creative differences, and he left because of that.

  • Milly

    This is going from memory alone, so may not be accurate, but ...

    Ecclestone said he was happy to be the 'name' to add a bit of star attraction/production support, to get Doctor Who rebooted, but did not want to stay for longer than an initial series for fear of being typecast and/or being unavailable for other work.

    In the UK, his name as the Doctor did give it a big push, and gave the impression (rightly or wrongly depending upon personal preference) that this was a high quality production, and not of the falling quality that many remembered from the McCoy era (which is the Doctor I grew up with).

    If there was conflict at all, then Russell T Davies and his two producers have long since left, and Mr Ecclestone may be eyeing up a part/currying favour with Steven Moffat since he is the big thing at the moment (plus Sherlock is now seen as a route to Hollywood casting).
