Levi Meaden On SyFy's New Series

Levi Meaden Previews SyFy's Newest Original Series 'Olympus'
SyFy continues to add to its stable of original series with the mythological drama Olympus, which kicks off on Thursday and according to the network, will take audiences "inside the action-packed world of humans, gods and monsters."

One of the human characters in this saga is Kimon, played by Levi Meaden (who portrayed AJ Fielding in the fourth season of The Killing). We caught up with Levi last week to discuss what we should expect from Olympus and why we keep finding him in a lot of epic TV shows.

Who exactly is Kimon?

"He is a character that comes from a slave background, who has been...

March 30th, 2015 8:44am EDT
5 Badass Moments From 'The Walking Dead' Season 5 Finale
If you didn’t end up sopped in nervous sweat by the end of “Conquer,” you may not have been paying attention. Nobody does heart-pounding tension like The Walking Dead and the season 5 finale had it in spades. Half of the show’s beloved characters were in mortal danger at one point, not that that’s anything new. But in a finale it feels like anything could happen. Rick be on their doorsteps in the last few moments. And you never know what a The Walking Dead finale’s biggest shocker is going to be.

“Conquer” sets up the next season’s arc better than any other of the show’s finales ever has....

March 29th, 2015 10:57am EDT
Killing Jesus
At an advanced screening of "Killing Jesus," the movie, based on the New York Times best-seller of the same name, author and executive producer Bill O’Reilly asked the crowd of nearly 1000 guests “ How does a poor carpenter become the most famous person in civilization?”

The movie, co-produced by Ridley Scott, Oscar-nominated director of Alien, Thelma & Louise, Gladiator and Black Hawk Down, makes it world premiere on Sunday March 29, 2015 at 8:00 pm/7:00 pm central on the National Geographic Channel.

Following the screening I spoke one-on-one with O’Reilly and the film’s cast. When I as...

Exclusive Clip From Tonight's Episode Of USA's 'DIG'
In tonight's episode of DIG, things continue to get thornier for Peter (Jason Isaacs), as he refuses to let go of Emma Wilson's murder. Of course he does, because this is Jason Isaacs and nobody puts him into a corner. Check out what's in store in "Prayer of David" with our exclusive preview clip!

Also in tonight's installment, there are consequences for Debbie (Lauren Ambrose) regarding what she tried to do before, and Avram (Guy Selnik) continues on to Croatia but might not get there if the assassin following him has anything to say about it. Make sure you're tuned in tonight to find out...

'Arrow' Recap: 'Suicidal Tendencies' Ends In A Cliffhanger

March 26th, 2015 9:22am EDT
'Arrow' Recap: 10 Wedding-Worthy Moments From 'Suicidal Tendenci
You know, for an episode about Diggle ("Suicidal Tendencies" was about Diggle, wasn't it?), there wasn't too much Diggle in last night's episode of "Arrow."

Sure, "Suicidal Tendencies" was loaded down with the coolness -- the Arrow fought the Atom, people died, and Olicity was destroyed forever... or at least for at least a few episodes, anyway.

But Diggle and Lyla's honeymoon in war-torn Kasnia was the weakest chunk of the episode by far (oooh, that senator guy was really evil. Greeat) while the sidestories got all the coolest bits.

At least the cool bits were as awesome as they were la...

'Justified' Recap: Trust

'Justified' Recap And Review: 'Trust' - As In, You Shouldn't Tru
We're now into the final four episodes of Justified, and so naturally it's time for some bullets and betrayals. This week's installment, "Trust," is all about people who should not have trusted other people, and paying the price for that faith. You certainly didn't expect everyone to stay on the same sides forever, did you?

Katherine is ranting to Duffy about last time's explosion, although she still doesn't think that highly of him. He reminds her that they're still on the same side, except for that they're not, and tells her to find out if Markham is going to move his money out of the va...

'Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Review: Love In The Time Of Hydra

March 25th, 2015 10:17am EDT
'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Recap: A Tale of Two S.H.I.E.L.D.s
Starting "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." off with a "Pulp Fiction" reference is always a good omen. "Love in the Time of Hydra" opens and Ward and Agent 33 are sitting in a classic middle American diner. There's talk of pumpkin pancakes and pecan syrup.

Then they pull out a couple of pistols and hold the place up. All we needed was for Ward to call 33 "Honey Bunny" and the homage would have been complete (and too obvious, probably).

The chunk of "Love in the Time of Hydra" willing to go bold with an elongated "Pulp Fiction" gag is also the chunk that's by far the most exciting. Ward and 33 are g...

'The Flash' Recap: 'Rogue Time'

'The Flash' Recap: 'Rogue Time' Plays It Too Safe With Time Trav
Coming off of last week's "Out of Time," there was no way this week's "Rogue Time" could compare. Sorry, "Rogue Time." Last week's hour was about smashing "The Flash's" established rules to tiny little fragments. This week's hour is about retconning them all back into place. It was a losing battle from the start.

Also, it doesn't help that all the retcons seemed so... easy.

Example: Dr. Wells advises Barry not to fiddle with time travel and to play out his day exactly as he did before. Barry takes that advice into consideration, then starts screwing with the time stream like a minute lat...

'Walking Dead' Recap: A Genuine Shocker

March 23rd, 2015 8:43am EDT
'The Walking Dead' Review: Five Badass Moments From 'Try'
The Walking Dead can feel predictable at times. There are inevitable moments that can make everything else feel like filler. We knew Rick and Shane would one day have an epic showdown, so everything in between was buildup. When Rick promised to kill Gareth with that axe, the audience only had to count the minutes until it actually happened exactly as expected. As soon as Pete was introduced, sitting in a shadowy silhouette on the porch, it was obvious to every regular TWD viewer that Rick would eventually kill him and everything else is just bidding time.

So, when the show manages to pull ...

‘Grey’s Anatomy’: Has Derek's Cheating History Repeated Itself

March 20th, 2015 9:51am EDT
‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Recap: Derek Returns A Cheater
If you’re looking for a definite confirmation that Derek has a D.C. side chick—Meredith already paints a descriptive snapshot of her—we might just get it.

But not in “Don’t Dream It’s Over” because as much as you can see a dress is blue and black, some people will view it as brown and white. In other words, things are never what they seem to be, even when it looks like they are. Including a mystery woman playing secretary on Derek’s phone. Yet, to Meredith it’s abundantly clear: he’s cheating. Her theory: “when you hear hoofbeats, think horses, not zebras. It means that the most obvious an...
