Mega Buzz: New Blood, the Homeland Baby, and a Masters of Sex Hookup

Every week, senior reporter Natalie Abrams satisfies your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com or tweet them to @NatalieAbrams

I can't believe we already lost a beloved character on True Blood! Please give me some happier scoop about the final season. — May

How about some new blood? You'll soon meet a chiseled new vamp who gets pulled into the H-vamp war. And when he sets his eyes on one lucky Bon Temps lady, he'll prove to be just as good a lover as he is a fighter. Although the object of his affection is initially a bit heartsore and unsure about entering into a new relationship, she eventually lets the good times roll when they get down and dirty on a pool table. 

Is it too early to ask about Homeland's new season? I just have to know what the show is going to do without Brody! — Margaret
Brody may be dead and gone, but executive producer Howard Gordon insists that the character will not be forgotten...read more

The Thursday Playlist: Netflix Turns Orange, Sharknado, Hollywood Game Night

Remakes (House of Cards) and reboots (Arrested Development) are one way to go when establishing a brand — let's just forget about the atrocious Hemlock Grove for now — but with Orange Is the New Black, Netflix finally achieves its eureka moment with a terrifically entertaining piece of original programming that's truly and bracingly original.

The setting, an upstate New York women's prison, isn't all that new, but Orange — adapted by Weeds' Jenji Kohan from a memoir by Piper Kerman — makes it fresh by mining a deep vein of absurdist humor with an unexpectedly generous empathy for the outrageous characters its overwhelmed heroine encounters in her nightmare odyssey behind bars. When anxious Piper Chapman (a wryly understated and immediately sympathetic Taylor Schilling) is being processed to start her 15-month sentence, she's assured this isn't OZ — and it also isn't Chained (or Caged) Heat. This show is much cooler than that.

The Chicago Code: Can Teresa Solve Another Valentine's Day Massacre?

The Chicago Code's Teresa Colvin (Jennifer Beals) has had the support of her fellow police officers in her fight to rid the city of corruption... until now.

The Chicago Code's Jennifer Beals: Superwoman hasn't come to Chicago

"There is the old guard who does things the old way, the corrupt way, and that's not good enough anymore," Beals tells TVGuide.com. "She has to raise the moral standard in her own department. There are people who understand what she's trying to do and a lot of very powerful people who don't and are trying to take her down."

In Monday's episode, after a multiple homicide takes place at the site of the infamous St. Valentine's Day Massacre, the mayor...read more

Battlestar Galactica One thing...

Battlestar Galactica One thing I've learned doing this job is that I develop biases to the point of blindness. Take this show. After one subpar episode, a return to form and then another so-so installment (the hostage crisis), I was beginning to worry. Still, I didn't give the Galactica folks too hard a time when I would've blasted lesser shows for committing the same sins, because I wanted to believe it was just a couple of hiccups. And right I was. This was one of the good ones, with the "barely competent and paranoid" Garner creating strife as commander of "the beast" (Pegasus), Roslin tackling her reelection and the abortion question, and then Garner leading his ship directly into a Cylon trap. If Apollo and Starbuck hadn't been onboard, I would've assumed this was the writers' chance to take Pegasus out of the picture and restore Galactica to its lone-wolf status. But I was p read more
