Fox’s Prison Break which is considered one of the most thrilling series is back to your screens and this time, the iconic crime drama TV show is bigger and better than all the previous seasons.
After almost a decade, most people have been left speculating what to expect but just after the first episode, one can already anticipate high adrenaline action and perhaps more mystery than what they are used to.
At the start of Season 5, a lot of people have been left wondering what happened to Michael Scofield, (Wentworth Miller) after it turns out that he was never dead after all. His brother Lincoln Burrows, (Dominic Purcell) is the first one to bring out the possibility of Michael being alive and he goes ahead and shares the same with Sara.
Amazon will be streaming Thursday night NFL games this year, beating Facebook, Twitter and YouTube for the streaming rights. Last year, NFL live-streamed 10 Thursday night games on Twitter for free. But this time, you will be needing an Amazon Prime subscribers to watch it, according to The Wall Street Journal.
“We’re focused on bringing our customers what they want to watch, Prime members want the NFL,” Amazon senior vice president Jeff Blackburn told the Wall Street Journal.
Setting Amazon apart is that their service already have many paying subscribers, who also get access to its library of movies and TV shows, many of which are originals. Facebook, Yahoo and Twitter are all free to their users, which means advertising is their primary source of revenue from the NFL live streaming.
According to Business Insider early this year, there are 65 million Prime members worldwide. The deal could potentially help Amazon not only retain that number but also improve on it with gains of new NFL subscribers.
It remains to been how much benefit a digital live stream will benefit NFL and, inversely how NFL will improve Amazon’s streaming platform. So, similar to Twitter last year, the one year deal for NFL’s move to Amazon seems like a good match for both sides to test the waters.
After a gripping first season that even bested the debut season of the Game of Thrones, in terms of ratings, creators Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy’s left fans in awe as the show went out with a bang to cap off an incredible first season that left fans wishing for much more. Now as fans wait for the second season, which will premiere in 2018, there is a lot of speculation about which direction the show will go in, who will be back, and where will it be located.
Recently, Nolan stated the show would be leaving the westworld park behind, and instead be moving onto other parks within the show’s universe,“So we said when we started working on the series that we wanted to be ambitious. We wanted each season to increase in that ambition and in the scope of the show.”
Joy also offers input on the future of the show and what kind of themes to expect in season two, “the safety is off,” so for characters like Dolores and other hosts, they won’t be the painfully limited robots that die horrifically each episode. Instead fans can anticipate the hosts to be in the driver’s seat, and that can play out in any number of ways.

Watch WWE Wrestling legend Hulk Hogan save the day once again in a strange yet fun new commercial created by advertising agency DDB & Tribal Worldwide Amsterdam for Dutch insurance company Centraal Beheer, the largest insurance company in the Netherlands. The Hulkster appears as himself in the commercial, which is the 60th in Beheer’s “Just Call Us”, a campaign that has been running for 30 years.
Appropriately titled “The Hulk”, the bizarre new TV spot shows a family enjoying the day and taking pictures at the pier when suddenly a thief snatches the mother’s bag. In comes Hogan, stopping the thief before he get away. He then pulls his punches, yet does the bad guy no harm by missing his target by a few inches and his signature wrestling moves not connecting, a sequence that seem to poke fun at professional wrestling’s dramatized athletic performance and world of make-believe.
Not exactly the comeback his fans are expecting. But its a light and fun commercial for Hogan, who was disgraced back in 2015 and has been absent from American wrestling for a couple of years.
Vivek Maddala has written scores for numerous films, and studied jazz performance at the Berklee College of Music. One of his most recent projects has been writing for the Cartoon Network reboot of Tom and Jerry. I reached him by phone to discuss his latest project.
Elizabeth Walker: So is this your first time writing for animation?
Vivek Maddala: My first job writing for film was working for Turner Classic Movies. They were restoring old silent films from the 1920s. Back then, there was no score, because they didn’t have a way of synching music with the film, so I had to create the score. I did five or six of thosefor TCM, and they were not that difference from scoring for animation.
EW: How so?
VM: There is no dialogue between Tom and Jerry, and only a bit from the minor characters. As aresult, it is very visual, and the music has to convey a lot of the emotions. So I did my training for that by scoring the silent films.
EW: Interesting. So how were you approached for this particular project?
VM: On the silent films, I was fortunate enough to work with a tremendous recording and mix engineer – and a very talented musician in his own right – named Dan Blessinger. He was actually the one who recommended me for the Tom and Jerry gig.

Iconic American actress, known for her roles in TV sitcoms The Mary Tyler Moore Show, and The Dick Van Dyke Show, died Wednesday in Greenwich, Conn. She was 80.

Back in Season 2 of Gotham, we saw Cameron Monaghan’s dastardly Gotham villain, Jerome, meet his end at the hands of Gotham City mayor Theo Galavan. But the popularity of the character (due in huge part to Cameron’s memorable portrayal) didn’t stop fan speculation of his possible resurrection in some way or form.
Recently, the show isn’t making a secret about Cameron Monaghan’s character return. With the mid-season finale “Beware the Green-Eyed Monster” weeks ago, the first trailer for Gotham’s 2017 season teased the return of the deranged villain, while actor Monaghan himself took to Twotter in September to confirm his return:
The response from Gotham fans to the character has been overwhelmingly positive from the start, so bringing him back from the grave should give us an exciting season ahead.
Here’s the synopsis for January’s midseason premiere of Gotham, titled “Ghosts.”
Cameron Monaghan and Paul Reubens Return
Falcone places a hit on Gordon after learning that he shot Mario. Gordon and Bullock discover a follower of Jerome (guest star Cameron Monaghan), who plans to bring him back to life. Meanwhile, Penguin spirals out of control before the biggest television interview of his Mayoral career, and Bruce and Selina deal with Selina’s mom’s return to Gotham.
