Paradise Lost: 4 First Impressions of Fox's Utopia

Josh, Utopia

Fox's reality gamble Utopia premiered Sunday night, and although the show was billed as an ambitious experiment that could comment on the way our current society has failed, the first episode felt like the trashy train wreck that is so many other reality shows.

6 reasons Fox's Utopia could be amazing (or a total disaster)

The format, created by Big Brother mastermind John De Mol and already a huge international hit, puts 15 pioneers into a bucolic Eden (or, you know, five acres with a huge barn, a shed, a pond and a waterfall!) and tasks them with creating a new society. But after watching the premiere, is this new society a place anyone would want to live?... read more

5 Things We Want to See in Boardwalk Empire's Final Season

Steve Buscemi

The HBO drama's fifth season, which premieres Sunday at 9/8c, jumps forward seven years from the events at the end of Season 4. But perhaps more importantly, the time-warped, eight-episode Season 5 will be the last hurrah for Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi) & Co.

6 Reasons Fox's Utopia Could Be Amazing (Or a Total Disaster)

Hex, Bella, Mike

It's safe to say that everyone involved with Fox's new reality series Utopia knows it's a huge risk.

The ambitious project, which kicks off a three-night premiere on Sunday at 8/7c on Fox, places 15 "pioneers" in an isolated setting with only the barest of essentials and tasks them with building a new society. And there will be no shortage of drama: In just the first few days of production, which have been live-streamed, there have already been physical altercations, an expulsion, an emergency trip to the hospital, and a splinter group setting up their own community within the larger group.

Exclusive Walking Dead First Look: Rick Is in a Bad Spot

Andrew Lincoln

The tagline for The Walking Dead's fifth season is "hunt or be hunted," and it looks like Rick Grimes may be on the losing end of that proposition. 

In the exclusive image from Season 5 of the AMC zombie drama below, Rick (Andrew Lincoln) is armed with a rifle, but he clearly doesn't seem to be in a great spot. But just who or what is Rick hiding from? ... read more

Mega Buzz: A Blacklist Betrayal, New Girl's New Date and Gotham's True Hero

James Spader, Zooey Deschanel, Ben McKenzie

Do you have any new info on The Blacklist's new season? —  Roger
How about some exclusive casting news? Tony-nominated Broadway veteran Norm Lewis — who is currently starring in the title role of The Phantom of the Opera and did a stint last season on Scandal — has been tapped to play J.P. Laskin, a business associate of Red's who doesn't exactly agree with his recent moves in the ongoing war with Berlin. In fact, I hear Laskin may even be tempted to switch sides. Of course, once Red finds out about the betrayal, he'll probably make the choice for him. Perhaps playing a "phantom" will come in handy!  

I'm really curious to see how Nick and Jess are doing after their break-up last season on
 New Girl. What will their dynamic be like when the show returns? — Lindsay
Four months have passed since Nick and Jess were last romantically involved, but unfortunately for Jess, it's been a bit of a slow summer in the love department... read more

Mega Buzz: Diaries' Changes, NCIS: LA's Throwdown and a Chicago Fire Accident

Paul Wesley, Daniela Ruah, Taylor Kinney

Each week, executive editor Adam Bryant satisfies your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com.

Any scoop on The Vampire Diaries? — Jessica
You've probably already Season 6's first teaser, which features Stefan telling Elena to move on. Well, there's a reason their convo wasn't face-to-face. When the season begins, Stefan will definitely not be anywhere near Mystic Falls. In fact, he will have taken up a surprising new profession in his new "home." And while we're the topic of professions, Alaric also has a new job. Hey, newly resurrected vampires have rent to pay too!

How long will Talia be sticking around on
 NCIS: LA? — Mary
Sorry, Densi 'shippers: It doesn't look like Talia (Mercedes Masohn) is going anywhere soon.... read more

Mega Buzz: The New Doctor Who and Sons' and Boardwalk's Final Seasons

Peter Capaldi, Charlie Hunnam, Steve Buscemi

Each week, executive editor Adam Bryant satisfies your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com.

What can you tell me about Twelve and Clara's dynamic on Doctor Who? — Aisha
Things will be very different between the pair now that the Doctor — to put it gently — has a few more years on him. In fact, without her schoolgirl crush influencing her, Clara begins to come into her own and be more assertive in their relationship. "I think she succeeds in dominating him, telling him what to do," Peter Capaldi teases. But don't expect him to be a total pushover. "She can only get so far with that," Capaldi says. "Then he'll turn. He often turns."

What is Juice up to when the new season of Sons of Anarchy begins? — Luke
Since he both "betrayed" Jax and killed the sheriff to protect Gemma, he's understandably keeping a low profile. Naturally, his hideout is soon discovered, which forces Juice to take even more drastic action to keep his secret safe.... read more
