There were plenty of big plot developments in the last season of Homeland, but some things never change. Based on the new Season 4 trailer, people are still trusting Carrie (Claire Danes) to be on her best behavior in sensitive situations, even though that has worked out well approximately zero times in the history of the show.
But then again, watching Carrie break all the rules has always been part of the fun. Watch the first action-packed, drama-filled Homeland Season 4 trailer — and get details on the premiere — after the jump. (If you’re not caught up, be warned that spoilers follow.)

Twin Peaks: The Entire Mystery, the upcoming remastered blu-ray release of the two seasons of Twin Peaks and the feature film Fire Walk With Me, contains a huge treat for fans. One disc in the set features ‘The Missing Pieces,’ a feature-length compilation of deleted and extended scenes. Most are from Fire Walk With Me, but there are a few from the series itself. It’s an incredible collection of footage that for decades has been known to exist, but which has never been seen.
‘The Missing Pieces’ premiered in Los Angeles last night, and I’ve compiled a list of what I’d consider the ten most essential scenes. They are mostly character moments that give us something never seen elsewhere in the series or the film. With three exceptions all these picks are standalone scenes rather than extended edits. But two of the extended scenes are among the most-desired bits of film in the set, and the last one, which comes from the series itself, will be seen as an absolute treasure by some.
Note: There are no big Twin Peaks spoilers below but obviously there are some spoilers for the content of the new ‘Missing Pieces’ feature on the Blu-ray set. Read More »
David Lynch recognizes true beauty in wood.
Last night at the Vista Theater in Los Angeles, David Lynch, the American Film Institute, and the home entertainment divisions of CBS and Paramount held an unusual event: the theatrical premiere of deleted scenes from Twin Peaks and the feature film Fire Walk With Me. We don’t see too many theatrical premieres for deleted scenes, but in this case it was a feature-length footage presentation with David Lynch, much of the cast, and some of the crew of Fire Walk With Me in attendance.
The event really began with a short introduction from David Lynch, and anyone who hoped that he might talk about the context of the footage or the history of the show would find that Lynch had something else in mind. His short speech almost reads like a eulogy to the Twin Peaks character who suffered the strangest fate of any in the series, as he extols the grace and value of wood. Watch his introduction after the break. Read More »

UPDATE: This article was written on June 18 but has now been confirmed by Entertainment Weekly. Update below with new video.
As fans speculate about the villains in Star Wars Episode VII, we know at least one bad guy created in this post-George Lucas universe. His name is The Inquisitor and he’s a lean, mean, lightsaber-swinging, Jedi-killing machine. In the Disney XD show Star Wars Rebels, set between Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, he’s tasked by Darth Vader to hunt down the remaining Jedi.
The Inquisitor was the first character introduced from Rebels; since then, we’ve met the entire remaining cast and their human counterparts. During all that, we have yet to find out who will be voicing the Inquisitor. Now, a rumor has surfaced that Jason Isaacs, of Harry Potter and The Patriot fame, will be voicing the character.

Earlier this week at the Syfy TCA panel, co-exec producer Terry Matalas said that the channel’s new series adaptation of 12 Monkeys is a “complete reimagining” of the original film. “We didn’t want to redo the movie and so we changed everything from the top down.” The movie in question, of course, is Terry Gilliam’s 1995 time-travel thriller in which a convict (Bruce Willis) is sent into the past in an attempt to find information about a virus that later wipes out most of humanity. Now there’s a 12 Monkeys TV trailer, and Syfy’s version sure looks a lot like a remake.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
The upcoming Fox prequel series Gotham is packed full of iconic Batman characters. One, however, is conspicuously absent: The Joker. A few months back, showrunner Bruno Heller said the following. “The Joker is the crown jewel of the Batman villains. He will be brought in with great care and a lot of thought.” We now have an idea of what that process might entail.
According to reports, every episode of the first season of Gotham will have a character in it who may, or may not, become the Joker. The first of these is in the pilot, which features a stand up comedian who witnesses a horrific event. Check him out and read more below. Read More »
