BBC America's 'Orphan Black' To Get 'Talking Dead' - Like Aftershow
Following in the footsteps of The Walking Dead, BBC America's clone chiller Orphan Black will get a weekly aftershow this season. After the Black debuts Thursday April 14 at 11 PM ET immediately following the Orphan Black Season 4 premiere.
BBC America is clearly hoping to tap into the audience appetite for post-show debates, a genre pioneered in the U.S. by AMC with its Talking programs Talking Bad (post-Breaking Bad), Talking Dead (post-The Walking Dead) and Talking Saul (post-Better Call Saul), all hosted by Chris Hardwick.
The 30-minute After the Black will be moderated by Ajay Fry, Morgan Hoffman and Teddy Wilson, hosts of the InnerSpace series (and related podcasts) on Canada's Space channel. InnerSpace is a daily sci-fi-oriented news program that has devoted episodes to discussing fan favorites like Battlestar Galactica, Doctor Who and Being Human.
After the Black will feature discussions with Orphan Black cast, crew and special guests, with topics ranging from plot hints, twists and theories. Special segments will include behind-the-scenes footage and exclusive first looks at the following week's Orphan Black episode.
The inaugural episode will welcome Orphan Black stars Tatiana Maslany and Kevin Hanchard to discuss the Season 4 premiere. Created by Graeme Manson and John Fawcett, the sci-fi Orphan Black follows a woman (Maslany) who poses as her own (murdered) clone. The series debuted on BBC America and Canada's Space channel in 2013.

You know, I disagree with nearly the whole blogpost because
(1. Let's face it, Arnold's getting too old
(2. Michael Bay isn't the right person for a franchise such as Terminator for lots of good reasons
(3. Genisys (Emilia Clarke in particular) is why the Terminator franchise just reached a new low. Poor casting and a plot that doesn't make sense.
Honestly I wish it was 2019 already because then James Cameron gets the rights for Terminator back and no more bad decisions will be made.
don't bother they're here

'Roots' Returns With A Robust 5.3 Million Viewers
A+E's remake of Roots may not have a chance of duplicating the now-unfathomable ratings highs of the original 1977 miniseries, but the latest adaptation of Alex Haley's epic novel got off to a very strong start on Monday night - despite aggressive competition.
Early Fast Nationals from Nielsen give Roots' Memorial Day debut an average 5.3 million viewers across the History, A&E and Lifetime networks. That makes it the most-watched cable miniseries opener since The Bible in 2013, a year when viewers were still slightly more inclined for a live tune-in.
Roots, which continues its four-night run on Tuesday, certainly had no lack of obstacles in finding an audience on Monday night. On top of the audience declines that come with the Memorial Day holiday, a great many of those tuning in were watching basketball. TNT's coverage of the NBA Western Conference Finals averaged a record-shattering 16 million viewers.
The real pressure on Roots now is not necessarily to sustain its audience on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday - but to grow that number with DVR and on-demand plays. A&E also is angling for prestige, premiering the mini within the window for 2016 Emmy eligibility. The critical response bodes well for that, with Roots averaging 83 out of 100 on review aggregator Metacritic.
Roots has a storied history with ratings. ABC's original eight-part series is among the most-watched programs in television history, opening to 28.8 million viewers and ultimately climbing to 36.4 million. It cemented the appeal of miniseries for decades - and its original success was no doubt a factor in A&E developing the remake.
Malachi Kirby, Erica Tazel and Rege-Jean Page attend the 'Roots' Screening At Tribeca Film Festival on April 21, 2016 in New York City.

Perhaps after the bad news about Anton Yelchin, we need to hear something good too.
People might not be aware that Kristanna Loken (T-X T3) has had a little baby boy named Thor. I think it was 2 days ago.

I guess it is their choice and right and whatever, but what i find sick, is that they advertise such.. practices as something new and progressive to our societies, the moment we all know that, Sodoms and Gomorrah, were doing the same things.. BC! IMHO allways, what makes a human more progressive and advanced, is his ability to control his instincts, like Cameron did for example, when she overrided John's termination. She took control of her rom programming, her instincts humanwise .
