Can you tell me anything about The Blacklist's big post-Super Bowl episode? — Darren
Now that the Berlin story line is wrapped up, the Super Bowl episode will be more of a stand-alone event. But it's shaping up to be an explosion-heavy spectacle — one that kicks off with Red being kidnapped! His abduction, however, could be part of a plan to stay close to the episode's villain (played by Ron Perlman). In fact, Red has a few tricks up his sleeve, one of which will seriously scare Liz.
I can't wait for Maleficent to get back to Storybrooke! Got any scoop for her arc on Once Upon a Time this season? — Annie
You're not the only one! ...
Peter Pan Live!
It's an annual tradition two whole years strong: NBC pulls out some of the stops and puts together a live singalong stage production of a popular musical for all of the Internet to snark at. Last year, it was Nazis versus Carrie Underwood and that guy from True Blood in a live production of The Sound of Music. Thursday, Allison Williams put on the green leather leggings and wig of the boy who never wanted to grow up and Christopher Walkencut off his hand to play Captain Hook in Peter Pan Live!
Those looking for a spectacle were not disappointed! There were technicolor crocodiles, prosthetic hook-limb fist bumps, very, very old "boys," and ads for a lil' mom-and-pop store called Wal-Mart. Yet as complete and fulfilling as Peter Pan Live! was, we couldn't help but get wonder about a few questions that stuck in our craw. So we put together the 13 questions we had after watching NBC's Peter Pan Live!
Peter Pan Live
If it's any consolation, the new Annie movie looks way worse. Though punishingly overlong and occasionally flat-footed, NBC's Thursday broadcast of Peter Pan Live! was another honorably ambitious and sporadically enjoyable attempt to bring the thrill of musical theater into America's living rooms. It helps that Peter's fantastical fairy-tale trappings are an easier sell, even to the loaded-for-snark Twitter audience, than the leaden mechanics of last year's more uneven The Sound of Music Live! (But still, what was NBC thinking, flashing those "Tweet With Us!" banners?)
Allison Williams and Christopher Walken
Magic is in the air on the Bethpage, Long Island, set of the upcoming production of Peter Pan Live! Make that magic realism. The show's titular lead, Allison Williams, is using a break in rehearsal to survey her surroundings. An ecstatic grin spreads across her face, making her nearly unrecognizable from Marnie, the guarded character she's played for the past three seasons on HBO's Girls. You can hardly blame her: The massive soundstage — where the two-hour event will be performed live on Dec. 4 — has been transformed into a...

As the days get shorter and colder, NBC is determined to make you laugh by releasing more hilarious promos for their upcoming staging of Peter Pan Live!
NBC is working as hard as ever to ensure that all of America has a reason to tune in for its upcoming Peter Pan Live! musical, for better or for worse.
Oscar-nominated actress Minnie Driver, who currently stars on NBC's About A Boy, is the latest big name to sign on.
It seems like just yesterday that NBC's The Sound of Music Live! sent Twitter into overdrive as viewers dispatched snarky tweets about...
It looks like we've finally found something to replace the Smash-shaped hole in our heart and its name is Peter Pan Live!
Based on the poster for NBC's latest attempt at a live musical, this retelling is going to be the epitome of hot mess. And not in the way The Sound of Music Live! was a mess but took itself very seriously. Everything about the Peter Pan Live! poster promises pure campy goodness — from the glitter encircling everyone's least favorite Girls star Allison Williams to Christopher Walken's beauty mark. (Seriously. What is up with that?)
NBC has released the first image of Christopher Walken as Captain Hook in its upcoming live production of Peter Pan and it's... well, it's something!
Executive producer Neil Meron tweeted the picture Wednesday, which shows Girls' star Allison Williams — as the the titular boy who won't grow up — engaging in a sword fight with Walken's iconic hook-handed villain at the top of a ship's mast.
NBC's Peter Pan Live! musical has found its Mrs. Darling.
