5 Reasons We're Excited For 'Constantine'
Ever since Hellblazer was first published by DC Comics over 25 years ago, John Constantine has been a pivotal character in the comic book genre. Created by Alan Moore and Stephen R. Bissette, the occult detective series became one of the most successful comic titles in the history of DC’s Vertigo comics.

The series centers on self-made magician, Constantine, who lives in a gritty, paranormal world where he’s made it his responsibility to fight off evil spirits, as well as face his own personal demons. The comic was often known as one of the darker series on the shelves, especially since th...

With 'Constantine,' Harold Perrineau Gets His Wings
As if Harold Perrineau wasn't cool enough as the bassist of the most underrated TV band, now he's gained supernatural powers as an angelic sidekick on NBC's new drama Constantine. His character Manny is tasked with watching over occult detective John Constantine (played by Matt Ryan, Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior) and trying to keep him in line, while the two battle literal forces of darkness.

We caught up with Harold last week to chat about Constantine joining the ranks of DC Comics adaptations on TV, how much Hellblazer reading he had to do, and if he's used to jumping on board new se...

'How To Get Away With Murder' Recap: Maybe The Show Should Spend More Time On Why Then How

'How To Get Away With Murder' Recap: Maybe The Show Should Spend
How To Get Away With Murder has an interesting problem to deal with: do we show the how or the why? It's chosen how nearly every time and it's not making the show stronger.

Look at the season-long murder mysteries: the murder of Lila Stanguard, the college student who was most definitely sleeping with future murder victim number two, Sam Keating. Usually on shows like these, the victims are really fleshed out to feel like real people and to gain our interest. Shows like Twin Peaks and Veronica Mars did this was aplomb, but How To Get Away With Murder is neither of these shows.

The show is...

'Scandal' Recap: 5 Essential Questions From 'The Key'
“You are poison,” Abby tells Olivia after weeks of antagonizing each other. It’s not exactly a fair criticism, seeing as Abby is attempting to blame Olivia for Rosen’s own stupid actions. But it hits Olivia right to the core. Because as far as she knows, as far as she’s been told in “The Key,” that’s exactly what she is. She’s basically told that she’s a poison that infects the men in her life and sets them on the path to destruction.

It’s an assessment built on lies, but it points out a disturbing part of Scandal. How many terrible, seedy political actions have been committed out of love ...

Aaron Paul: Barbies, Violent Video Games Are 'More Damaging' Tha
Aaron Paul is hitting back at Toys 'R' Us after the toy store pulled "Breaking Bad" action figures from its shelves.

A parent found the dolls inappropriate for children, and the store took swift action by removing miniatures of Paul's and Bryan Cranston's drug deal characters from its stock.

Paul wrote a series of posts on Twitter, complaining about the action. "Wait, so @ToysRUs pulled all of the Breaking Bad figures from their shelves and still sells Barbie? Hmmmm... I wonder what is more damaging?" he said.

"And what about all of the violent video games you sell @ToysRUs? Do you still...

Every relationship has a breaking point and from the looks of tonight’s "Grey's Anatomy" episode “Bend and Break” Callie and Arizona have reached theirs.
