Thanks to the gradual way the new line-up was has been introduced, you barely notice there’s none of the original cast around. Even if you do, you give up caring pretty damned quickly. “Trinity” may not be a classic episode – like most first episodes there’s too much necessary setting up to do – but it does have all the hallmarks of what makes the British Being Human such a cherishable series in spades.
Here are a few random, non-spoilery thoughts and cryptic clues about what to expect:
• Alex (Kate Bracken) is wonderful as the new ghost on the block and has some brilliantly snarky lines throughout (listen out for her casual mention about “drawing cocks”). Although she has to go through the “I can’t feel, I can’t love” motions we’ve all see before, it’s not laboured and she does have one genuinely heart-rending scene of acceptance. She also seems more ready to use her ghostly powers to her advantage than Annie was. There’s a great, eerie moment when torments someone who doesn’t know she’s there
• Hal is just brilliant. Honestly, Mitchell fans, stop pining and enjoy Damien Molony’s quirky performance. Hal’s a tad more of an Anne Ricey vampire than Mitchell in the flashbacks (which is ironic, since Toby Whithouse retooled series one to make the vampires less Anne Ricey after the pilot) but in the modern day his OCD tendencies are used to great effect, and makes the moment when he loses his vampire cool all the funnier/more shocking.
• Oh yeah, and there’s a lot of topless Hal, very early on…
• Tom is a little underused, but has a few good moments, and remains thoroughly entertaining to watch and great part of the mix. His best line involves him grumbling about being given a “general knowledge round”. He manages to unwittingly grate on Hal’s nerves a couple of times, but it’s a shame there aren’t more Hal/Tom scenes as they work well together, dramatically. On the other hand, he has some great scenes with Alex.
• It starts with a flashback, and has lots of flashbacks.
• The main “concept” of the season – as it’s revealed over the course of the episode – is one of the most outrageously hokey ideas the show has yet attempted, but it grasps it with such gusto, you’re left desperate for more.
• There’s a new bit of mythology about the creation of vampires.
• Alex seems to have a knack for untimely, tasteless jokes. Not sure if this will be a running gag, yet, or just a reaction to her unease at the new world she finds herself in.
• Richard Wells’ music seems more to the fore than ever before, and there are some lovely moments when the score sounds like something out of Amelie or Hugo.
• Hal is forced to witness something that could drive him insane.
• There’s a reference to a vampire in Marigolds – which must be on purpose.
• There are some great domestic scenes, reminiscent of series one.
• Phil Davies is amazing as Captain Hatch, and cleverly introduced in a slow, subtle way… He is absolutely chilling at one point.
• Hal does things he regrets and is bound to regret more as the series goes on… both in the present and in flashback.
• Hal has a problem with punctuation.
• There’s a brilliant, quip-filled fight scene.
• A couple of performances by guest characters are a little broad and overly comedic (oh God, it’d the nasally nerd), but one of them redeems himself as the episode goes on.
• Somebody acts so bizarrely around Hal, you kinda hope there’s a supernatural explanation for it later in the series (but you fear there may not be, and it’s just another one of those broad performances)
• There are some great tonal changes – it flows effortlessly from comedy, to high emotion to horror.
• And there are some very creepy bits, especially when someone bends over backwards to accommodate a new arrival.
• The plot concerning the Cleaners (those men in suits introduced at the end of last season) takes a turn you probably won’t expect, which makes them more even more interesting.
• The pop music used on the soundtrack includes a surprising choice – a certain, quirky punk classic.
• An extra with no lines is killed, but despite his silent status you will be glad he’s bumped off.
• There’s a very unexpected cameo. You may not even recognise who it is when he appears. If you don’t, check the final name in the list of actors in the credits (don’t do this beforehand, because if you do recognise who it is, you’ll love the fact that you recognised them without being prompted)
All in all a strong start to the series, great central performances, and an intriguing new central arc. Mitchell who?
Toby Whithouse Introduces Being Human Series 5
“Whenever we sit down to storyline a new season of Being Human, we try to find a single headline – unofficial and usually never stated – that encapsulates the series arc. It’s more of an ‘aide memoire’ for us, something that articulates our ambition and intention.
“Series One told the story of Mitchell, George and Annie settling into their new home and the beginning of their (ultimately futile) attempt the ape humanity and live a normal mundane life. In my mind it was titled ‘There Goes The Neighbourhood’.
“In Series Two, our heroes were being hunted and manipulated by a shadowy group of religious zealots who had perverted the word of God to suit their own agendas, believing the eradication of supernatural creatures was a divine mission. I called it ‘God Loves, Man Kills’.
“Series Three dealt with the aftermath of the massacre Mitchell committed in Box Tunnel the previous year and his ultimate destruction at the hands of ‘The Wolf-shaped Bullet’.
“And Series Four detailed the vampire myth of ‘The War Child’ – George and Nina’s orphaned baby – and her part in destroying the vampire aristocracy.
“When we started work on Series Five we gave it the title ‘The Greater Good’.
“Every year we try and up the ante. Blowing Mark Gatiss and a baby up at the end of series four was good, but we could do better. We wanted to tell a story that was even greater, even more labyrinthine and epic than anything we’ve done before. Slowly a story about sacrifice and misplaced courage started to take shape. Our heroes would be driven to compromise their own fragile humanity to safeguard the rest of the world; and less scrupulous characters would endanger the lives of others in pursuit of their own agendas.
“Then, as other elements started to develop, we toyed with ‘He Will Rise’ as our headline title. The merits of our main cast(s) have been well documented, but we have also been lucky enough to have some of the finest actors the industry has to offer playing our Big Bads – Jason Watkins, Lyndsey Marshal, Donald Sumpter, Andrew Gower, Mark Gatiss; and this year we’ve been blessed to have Phil Davis join us, as the repulsive and cruel Captain Hatch, arguably our biggest villain ever. It’s a performance of such delicious evil, you’ll be left with your jaw on your chest and your breakfast on your lap. He’s joined by Steven Robertson as the mysterious Mr Rook, the sinister Man In Grey we met at the end of series four, and Colin Hoult as the deluded and volatile Crumb. A newly recruited vampire, he describes himself as ‘the world’s worst nightmare: the victim that suddenly gets super powers’.
“But in the end we settled on ‘The Trinity’, because this was the first entire series with our new cast. Thanks to the brilliance, enthusiasm and sheer elemental talent of Damien Molony, Kate Bracken and Michael Socha; it was their skill and passion that would stop me rocking and dribbling and draw me out from under my desk to actually write the scripts.
“And so this series title belongs to them. The new heroes of Being Human. The new trinity.”
4.14 Synopsis: Down the Rabbit Hole
CHARLIE BEWLEY FROM “TWILGHT” GUEST STARS AS ONE OF THE FIVE HUNTERS — On the island, Damon (Ian Somerhalder) has an ugly run-in with a Hunter named Vaughn (guest star Bewley), and realizes he is one of The Five. Stefan (Paul Wesley) confesses his true feelings about the possibility of becoming human again to Elena (Nina Dobrev). When a stunning new piece of information about the cure is suddenly revealed, it changes the stakes for everyone. Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) helps Bonnie (Kat Graham) recognize what is real and what is an illusion, and Shane (guest star David Alpay) is comforted by a woman from his past, Caitlin (guest star Camille Guaty, “Prison Break”). Back in Mystic Falls, Caroline (Candice Accola) and Tyler (Michael Trevino) find that their attempt to translate the code on the Hunter’s Sword is futile without help from Klaus (Joseph Morgan), who has his own reasons for solving the puzzle. Claire Holt also stars. Chris Grismer directed the episode written by Jose Molina (#414).

Most people will recognise Nathan Stewart-Jarrett as Curtis (‘the angry one’) from Channel 4’s series Misfits - a show that very quickly became a hit when it landed on our screens four years ago and propelled its original young cast into the limelight. Since then Jarrett has been busy working on a range of projects and is back on the small screen in the new six-part conspiracy thriller, Utopia.
Based around a random group of individuals’ discovery of a mysterious graphic novel manuscript, Jarrett plays Ian Johnson, an IT consultant in his mid-twenties caught up in the bizarre and mysterious plot. For Jarrett the opportunity to be a part of the exciting new show was a no-brainer. “It was such a different role to the roles I’ve done, and also what I’ve seen or read before. I liked [the character’s] sense of frustration and inaction. The idea of being in your twenties and not really knowing what you are doing.” Something Jarrett explains that he understands first-hand, “I was interested in that because a lot of my friends are like that, it kind of spoke to me”.
This year looks set to be one of the most exciting yet for the young actor, who has a few films scheduled for release later this year, including Dom Hemingway - a British crime thriller starring UK acting heavyweights Jude Law and Richard E. Grant. So what could possibly be next on the rising star’s professional to do list? “I really desperately want to work with Shame director, Steve McQueen. You have to really have those dreams, but this year is really about having things come out, which is nice because I’ve never really had that before”. Excited by the prospect of going to America and possibly doing a British indie film, Nathan is ready to run with whatever opportunities come his way. “Obviously having lots of projects does open up doors for you, whether or not you are aware of them at the time – and that’s really good because it frees you up to do different types of work which is exciting.”
After checking out some of the shots from the day’s shoot at the Chelsea Ram, in west London, our conversation turns to fashion, Nathan mockingly declares “Look at me!” (His lean frame is dressed in dark denim teamed with a black chunky knit sweater) “Obviously everyone wants to look good, but I dress to be comfortable. I can look quite simple – I tend to wear no colour! I like things that I can move in and I just go with my mood that day. Or with whatever comes to hand when I’m working or filming. Grab and go!” And his favourite fashion item? “I like jumpers. Not just one jumper but lots of jumpers”, which explains his love of acclaimed UK designer James Long (who recently collaborated with Topman on a knitwear range). Stumped on who he would pick as his personal style icon, the actor flashes a cheeky grin and tells me he’d rather look to the past for fashion inspiration than anyone currently featured in any fashion ‘Best dressed’ list.
As we reminisce fondly over his early days filming for Misfits, Nathan shares that early disappointments have taught him to not have too many expectations. “I didn’t know what was going to happen when we first started the show. I had never been on a whole series or anything before - I didn’t expect it to blow up.” And despite the success of the show he’s manage to not let any newfound fame and popularity go to his head. “I think people would’ve thought our expectations would have changed as the show got bigger, but not really. Each time I have gotten a role and thought this is a game changer, the game has completely stopped and not worked, or something has not happened or changed in the way that I thought it would of. My expectations have always remained realistic.”
And two behind-the-scenes shots:

British model Andrew Cooper appears in Diet Cola’s new ad, and he sizzles.
The commercial is making women of all ages swoon, especially his wife.
“She loves it. It’s been on replay a lot,” Cooper said on “Good Morning America” today. “I travel a lot so it’s her way of having me at home when I’m away.”
The commercial marks the 30th anniversary of the drink and features an updated take on the company’s memorable 1994 commercial that featured hunky Lucky Vanous.
In that ad, Vanous played a construction worker who would cool off every day with a Diet Coke. What he didn’t know that a group of women in a nearby office building had made watching his Diet Coke break their daily activity.
Of course, Vanous appeared shirtless.
In the updated version, Cooper plays a gardener. He’s seen pushing a lawnmower while a group of nearby women ogles him shamelessly. One of the women sends a can of Diet Coke rolling down a hill. He picks it up, opens it and the contents come shooting out, spraying his shirt – so he removes it, revealing his well-muscled chest. The womens’ jaws drop.
“The reaction’s been great. It’s only been out a while, but there’s definitely been a lot of hype towards it. It’s been a great thing,” Cooper said.
Vanous was 33 years old when he appeared in the classic Diet Coke commercial. The former Nebraska native stood 6-foot-2. He had served as an Army Ranger.
His counterpart, Cooper, stands 6-foot-1. He runs a pet boutique.
“I’m just a lucky guy … right place, right time. I’m just happy to be a part of it,” he said.
Cooper said he’s been looking to get into acting, so appearing in the sexy new ad is a “nice move in that direction.”
Say that Jennifer Lawrence did not appear to have a stranglehold on this year’s best-actress Oscar. Say that the Silver Linings Playbook star had not already endeared herself to the masses via refreshingly no-nonsense interviews during which she does not hesitate to order burritos the “size of a mailbox” or threaten to take out the knees of her peers. Then the actress might need help campaigning during the final awards-season push. If that were the case, she might call upon on her parents, who after this weekend’s SAG Awards ceremony, proved that they are just as charmingly down-to-earth as their daughter. The evidence was provided during anEntertainment Tonight interview during which Lawrence’s father, Gary, proudly compared her to “Secretariat in the Derby” while refusing to put down his glass of champagne—television-interview protocol be damned. Jennifer’s mother, Karen, meanwhile, spontaneously teared up when the microphone was directed at her, explaining, “I just can’t stop crying . . . I don’t have anything to say because we’ll embarrass her. We always do!” Jennifer, in turn, explained to her mother the mechanics of a microphone before covering her face and exclaiming, “Mom, stop crying . . . God, this is embarrassing.”
Meanwhile, on a less winsome corner of the red carpet, without adorable parents to distract television entertainment reporters, Lawrence’s Silver Linings Playbook co-star Bradley Cooper was pressed with questions about that Taylor Swift–romance rumor that will not die. “Crazy, never met her. That’s not even true at all,” the actor, who has had less luck than Lawrence has this awards season, clarified. “That’s completely made up.” If only Bradley Cooper had Jennifer Lawrence’s parents to provide him campaign support! (Or to deflect attention during awkward Q&As.)
(from her pheed:) In reply to the photos of me attempting to take my dogs on a walk while a man I've never seen before harassed me... All for your entertainment I suppose. Hope this is enlightening. Not to mention he was driving around in a "handicap" vehicle recklessly while I walk in a neighborhood full of children praying he doesn't hit a small child or one of my dogs... Lost 2 already this year, don't wanna go through that again.
needs more shots of the dogs! also, pheed sux
Epic Mickey 2 was apparently such a dud that it shut down an entire studio. So when Bob Iger said the other day that he would take a closer look at violence in his company's video games, he actually meant...
Because it looks like Disney's putting all its gaming eggs in one basket. One large, universe-spanning basket.
A couple of thoughts spring to mind here: One, they wanted a Kingdom Hearts that they didn't have to share profits on. Two, the concept of getting gamers to buy collectible figurines to activate characters is one they couldn't believe Skylanders thought of first, but they will do better because they're Disney goddammit, and people already know all their characters.
So far the character selection leans heavily away from hand-drawn classic characters and towards Pixar movies, Wreck-It Ralph, Captain Jack Sparrow and Jack Skellington - presumably the entire Disney empire will follow as far as the market will bear.
And since Brad Bird apparently isn't keen on sequels, this might be the only way you'll get more Incredibles. Even if it does mean Syndrome riding on Dumbo.

The long-gestating sequel to Robert Zemeckis’s fan-favorite animted/live-action mashup movie Who Framed Roger Rabbit? is apparently no longer going to happen, with the director blaming changes at Walt Disney Studios for the loss of support for the project.
“There’s been a lot of changes at Disney Studio,” Zemeckis told the Empire Magazine podcast (audio embedded below). “I don’t think it’s on the cards, I don’t think it’s going to happen.”
Zemeckis declined to go into more detail, or to share information about the script, as there’s still an outside chance the movie could get made. In the recent past, he had seemed more confident that the project could happen, so it’s difficult to say whether some of that was wishful thinking (either by Zemeckis or the media covering it) or whether something dramatic may have happened behind the scenes to shift his perception.
He did say, though, that if the film turns out to be absolutely dead, he’ll share the premise-along with the 3-D test footage for a Yellow Submarine movie (based on the classic Beatles cartoon, obviously) that has also since been abandoned.
Ben Affleck, star and director of the critically acclaimed film 'Argo,' has said that he doesn't want any of his three children to pursue Hollywood careers. Affleck is married to Hollywood starlet Jennifer Garner.
Affleck told E! News at the Producer's Guild of America Awards in Los Angeles on Saturday that "I would do whatever I could to discourage that. My kids have enough issues of being exposed in ways that I don't want them to be exposed, in magazines and shows and stuff."
Together, Affleck and Garner have three children - Violet, seven, Seraphina, four, and 11-month-old Samuel.
In the world of show business, staying married (to the same person) for a decade is a rare accomplishment. So when actress Ashley Judd and her hubby, race car driver made it to the 10-year anniversary back in 2001, it seemed the couple had gotten their Hollywood ending. Turns out they didn’t.
The two announced their breakup on Tuesday. "We have mutually decided to end our marriage. We'll always be family and continue to cherish our relationship based on the special love, integrity, and respect we have always enjoyed," the couple said via a statement to People magazine.
The daughter of country singer Naomi Judd and half-sister of Wynonna Judd was a staple on the sidelines at her husband’s races, including when Franchitti, 39, won his third Indy 500 in May. “I am so proud of him,” Judd, 44, told TV reporters at the time.
The “Kiss the Girls” star revealed to Redbook in February of 2010 that the couple strengthened their relationship with a daily “appreciation exercise.”
“The point is, we're always so quick to say, 'That hurt my feelings,' so how about being as quick to say, 'I really appreciated it when you turned the TV down so we could hear each other.' Dario and I do an appreciation every day,” Judd said, explaining that the point of the exercise was to ensure that “even when one is cross, to get some gratitude on board.”
The couple married in December 2001 at a castle in Scotland after a two-year engagement.
In her book, exclusively obtained by Life & Style, Brandi writes about the day she found out about Eddie’s affair. “I’m not sure how I ended in my closet sobbing...a teary-eyed Eddie found me lying there and minutes later, without saying a word, he started kissing me all over. He pulled off my pants and we started having sex right there,” she recalls. “He swore up and down my body that it wasn’t true, that it was completely innocent. In that moment, it was easier to believe him, because I just couldn’t stand the thought of being without him.”
But the 40-year-old knew there was something going on between her ex and LeAnn.
“LeAnn had accidentally smeared some cake frosting on her top (she was still a bigger girl and completely flat-chested at the time) and asked my husband, not realizing that I was standing behind the both of them, if he wanted lick it off her,” she recalls in the book. “He hadn’t realized I was there, either, and he laughed with hungry eyes at the suggestion.”
Even after Brandi and Eddie split, the reality star says her ex promised “he would never marry LeAnn, but that was just one of the countless lies he told me.”
Brandi found herself homeless, without a dime or credit to her name following their divorce. “I was a jobless, homeless, mother of two living out of her $1,200-a-month SUV and couch-surfing from one hospitable friend to the next,” she explains. “Even with the help of Lexapro — I fell into a tailspin [and eventual DUI arrest]. White wine became my constant shoulder to lean on."
Of course, she got her revenge — by way of vaginal rejuvenation. “This pretty intense surgery had an even more intense price tag: $12,000,” Brandi reveals. "A brand-new vagina would be an Eddie-free vagina.... I decided that since Eddie had ruined my vagina for me, he could pay for a new one. I gave [the doctor's office] Eddie's credit card number.”
Looking back, she appreciates everything she’s been through. “I would like to thank my ex-husband, Edward Cibrian, for giving me all the material I could ever need to write this book and for helping me discover the strong independent woman inside of me,” she writes.
LeAnn is just fine, thank you very much. Amid reports that the singer broke down in tears while at lunch with friends on Monday, Jan. 28, Rimes is indeed crying -- foul, that is. On Tuesday, Jan. 29, the social media-loving starlet took to Twitter to slam rumors that she was distraught over comments made by husband Eddie's ex-wife Brandi.
"Boys and girls, I was not crying yesterday at lunch w/ Darrell Brown, Eddie Cibrian, my BFF Liz, and my little dog Toto," she wrote on the micro-blogging site. "We ate and hugged goodbye."
"I must have been so sad to see all of them go 3 blocks to the establishment where we were all ending up," she added sarcastically, along with a hashtag about "bullshit" headlines. "Thanks for all the sweet concern though."
At a Jan. 28 signing for her new book, Drinking and Tweeting: And Other Brandi Blunders, Glanville fired off a few choice insults about her ex's new wife.
"[She] can go fuck herself," the author and mother-of-two proclaimed. Then, jokingly, she added: "Well, she has to, because who would want to?"
Defending her harsh words, the bombshell said: "I loved so hard -- I loved my children and my family was perfect. I did everything I could do for [Eddie] and the boys and to make him not want to stray. So, when it happened, especially with someone as unattractive as her..."
Rimes, for her part, is equally incensed. "I usually don't engage [in the feud], but there comes a time when you're just like, 'Screw you,'" she told Jimmy Kimmel of her nemesis on Jan. 22. "That's it, and that's all you wanna say, and you're like, 'I'm done with this now,' for like another three months."

Ke$ha is teaming with MTV to give fans a look inside her fabulous, freaky — and frequently furry — world with a brand-new documentary series, called (rather appropriately) "Ke$ha: My Crazy Beautiful Life."
The new series is set to premiere on MTV this April, and follows Ke$ha as she navigates the drama and madness of both her personal and professional live, traveling the globe and recording her Warrior album. Shot over the course of two years, and directed by Ke$ha's brother, Lagan Sebert and family friend Steven Greenstreet, the show promises to give fans an intimate, no-limits look at her rise to superstardom ... and her attempts to follow-up that success with her sophomore album. And in doing so, it also explores family bonds, love, friendship and the passion Ke$ha pours into her music.
"You might have heard my voice on the radio, seen me onstage or in a music video, but that's only a part of the story," Ke$ha told MTV News. "With this documentary series I'm revealing a more complete picture of what my life is really like. It's not all glamorous but it's all real."
And since we know you can't wait until April to get a glimpse of that reality, we've got an exclusive sneak peek at "My Crazy Beautiful Life" right now: a down-and-dirty backstage pass where Ke$ha, clearly spent from her time on stage, guzzles water and proudly proclaims to "party for a living."
And that's just part of the story. It's her life, on her terms. So make sure to tune in to "Ke$ha: My Crazy Beautiful Life," premiering this April on MTV!
Are you excited for Ke$ha's "My Crazy Beautiful Life?''

aka, Melissa Gilbert, Timothy Busfield Are Engaged!
Little House on the Prairie star star Melissa Gilbert is engaged to Timothy Busfield, the actress's rep tells E! News, adding that the future bride and groom are "both incredibly happy."
A source tells E! News that the Dancing With the Stars alum, 48, and Busfield, 55, got engaged over the holidays, adding, "They've known each other for quite some time, as their paths have crossed off-and-on over the past 20 years."
This will be the third marriage for both. Gilbert has two children from previous relationships, and Busfield has three.
We wish them the best!
yes i know timmy b is famous for thirtysomething etc. but he'll always be a nerd to me
5. Emma and Regina, "Once Upon a Time"
While Emma and Regina could unite to create a pretty awesome couple nickname (SwanQueen) at least one of them would have to go through some intense character changes for this ship to make any sense. There just isn't a relationship book that covers how to deal with the fact that your girlfriend wiped your parents' memories, leaving you to grow up an orphan in a world that wasn't your own.
It's not that the cop and the coroner wouldn't make a pretty cute couple, it's the show's demographic that makes this ship unlikely to be written in. Bottom line, this is a drama your mom watches, and whil you mom might be cool enough to keep tuning in if Maura and Jane start stealing kisses over the dead bodies, the network probably won't alienated the million moms with two lesbian protagonists
4. Maura and Jane, "Rizzoli and Isles"
3. Dean and Castiel, "Supernatural"Looking past any hints that this relationship is going canon in the actual episodes (and there are an endless supply) Destiel will most likely come true, however briefly, just because the writers will fear for their safety from what might be the most rabid group of shippers on the internet.
2. Sleeping Beauty and Mulan, "Once Upon A Time"
They're going to kiss. It's going to happen. Maybe it'll happen in a dream sequence, but the brave rescuer and the girl she's protecting are going to lock lips at some point.
1. Quinn and Rachel, "Glee"
After two and a half seasons of bitter rivalry and a kind of sudden friendship, Quinn and Rachel have one of the more stable relationships on "Glee." No couple is off limits in the world of spontaneous song, and it would be kind of interesting to see a pairing that had a half uninterested in pursuing a life on the stage.

One of our favorite past times is highlighting the lack of ladies on TV. Well, I wouldn't say it's a favorite past time, but it keeps us busy. But not today! Today from TV land comes word of tomorrow's debut of Nikki & Sara: LIVE! Premiering at 11/10c on MTV, the show looks like a mixture of stand-up, sketches, interviews, and general shenanigans from Nikki Glaser, a stand-up comic, and Sara Schaefer, a blogger for Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. It's all based on the duo's popular podcast You Had to Be There, which is supposed to be really funny. But I wasn't there. BA-DUM-BUMP SHOOT ME NOW.
The promos look good, and I'm excited to see two funny women make a go for it on late night TV. Let's all tune in, OK? Let's show the boob tube where it got its name from. RESPECT.
