From LA Examiner: 'Arrow' Season Finale Spoilers; 'The Following' Season Finale Post-Mortem & Season Two Teases; 'Dallas' Renewed...



In the middle of The CW's first season of Arrow, the show delivered a show with such explosive action, big character reveals, and overall intense stakes (especially for being so early in the show's run), that it prompted a "Holy sh*tballs!" Tweet-fest between the cast as they received their copies of the episode script. If that could happen in the middle of the season's run, then Colin Donnell promised us that "Holy sh*tballs isn't going to cover it" when it comes to the season finale... [MORE]



Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) on FOX's The Following wasn't just trying to reunite his family or get under Ryan Hardy's (Kevin Bacon) skin; he was also trying to achieve a level of success with his work that he just never seemed to manage as a writer.

As the FBI agent responsible for bringing in Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) almost a decade earlier, Hardy was the key to catching him yet again in present day. The complicated history between the two men, as well as the hard past Ryan had on his own, from a much younger age, offered Williamson a unique take on a character we've seen time and again. And because of that, Williamson was happy to repeat that he has "a lot more story" for Bacon's Hardy-- both in his past and his present, noting that we "need to see the aftermath of this and the effects of this [finale]"...

"TNT renews Dallas for season three"

After a season that dealt with the untimely death of J.R. Ewing (and portrayer Larry Hagman) in a way that paid tribute to the original series, the extended Ewing family and feuds, and the actor himself, TNT has officially renewed Dallas for a third season. Fifteen brand new episodes will premiere in 2014... [MORE]
