'General Hospital' fan recap: Faking it

Season 54 | Episodes 60–64 | Aired Jun 27–Jul 1, 2016

After watching this week’s General Hospital, there is one question reverberating throughout viewers’ minds: When faking a positive pregnancy test, does one use mascara or eyeliner to make the drugstore test appear positive? Although Alexis’ age hasn’t been specified, it seems questionable at best that pregnancy, even a fake one, would be a feasible option for the character. But there’s little doubt that it’s decidedly fake, as Alexis never mentions the “baby” without trying to get Julian’s recorded confession.

But another question would be: Why is Sonny involved in the ploy? Sonny may have a daughter with Alexis, but he has been largely cruel to her for a very long time. It wasn’t that long ago that he proclaimed her dead to him. Wouldn’t it have been great if this caper were just Alexis and Anna working together? Would Alexis’ apology to Anna—for keeping the secret of the hit on Duke—have been more powerful if the story were driven solely by two female leads?

13 recurring actors from Bryan Fuller's 'Fullerverse'

By the time they have their third or fourth show on the air, most successful television showrunners have a favorite crop of actors they continually draw from. Joss Whedon and Shonda Rhimes often revisit familiar faces when casting their projects, as does Bryan Fuller. He’s most known for Dead Like Me, Wonderfalls, Pushing Daisies, pilots turned one-off TV movies Mockingbird Lane and High Moon, and, currently, Hannibal.

Fuller frequently recasts the same talented actors in his projects—sometimes even to play the exact same role on multiple shows. His imaginative and visually inspired works are all generally assumed to take place in the same universe, with company and brand names also often popping up across multiple series.

As we anxiously await the third-season premiere of Hannibal this Thursday, June 4, on NBC, let’s take a look at 13 actors and actresses who have made multiple appearances in the Fullerverse.Read More

Is it June 4 yet? We're hungry for 'Hannibal'

As a child, I remember the anticipation of summer as the school year wound down. That knowing that soooooooooon you would be free.

Soon. Soon. Soon. That’s me with Hannibal right now. Back when Fannibals heard that the season three premiere was being pushed from spring to summer, we all reset our internal “soooooon” clocks and waited. For June 4.

It’s June 1 now. “Soon” is very close. “Soon” is almost here. But it’s not here yet, which makes this even more of a torment.Read More

10 'Hobbit' actors appearing on television this year

With the recent DVD release of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, the time has finally come to say goodbye to the final chapter in Peter Jackson’s epic Hobbit trilogy. The amazing Lord of the Rings/Hobbit franchises have taken 20 years to complete—considering Peter Jackson’s original trilogy idea was The Hobbit and two Lord of the Rings sequels back in 1995.

These films have shaped the cinematic landscape for almost two decades, leaving a legacy of scope and drama that will impact film making for generations to come. This legacy is due in no small way to the amazing actors that have graced these films. Now that The Hobbit has wrapped, many of its actors have moved to television, taking on comedy, fantasy, time travel, historical fiction and more.

Here is our list of where to see many of these leading men—for free—in the upcoming year!Read More

Richard Armitage to go from dwarf to dragon for NBC's 'Hannibal'

Francis Dolarhyde fans, your long national nightmare is over. During San Diego Comic-Con, Bryan Fuller announced that the great Red Dragon would be appearing in season 3 of Hannibal. TV Line reported today that Richard Armitage has been cast to play the part.

Color me intrigued.

My experience with Armitage is mostly through the Hobbit trilogy and I think of him as a gruff, growling, hairy guy. I mean, he’s a dwarf. Well, not really (he’s actually 6’2″), but you know what I mean. The idea of Thorin playing a man who’s supposed to be more of an awkward giant of a man with delusions and serial-killer tendencies feels like a complete 180—which may be exactly why this will work so well.Read More
