Unlike poor Ned Stark, whom he played in Game of Thrones' first season, Sean Bean won't be losing his head anytime soon as Martin Odum, the rugged chameleon hero of TNT's Legends (Wednesday, 9/8c). Losing his mind, however, might be an occupational hazard.
The best parts of this otherwise disappointingly generic spy thriller depict Bean burrowing into Martin's psyche as a (what else, and wait for it) legendary FBI deep-cover operative, who commits so fully to his carefully manufactured false identities, or "legends," that he signs alimony checks with his alias's name. His unsteady sense of self only gets more confused when a hooded stranger warns him that Martin isn't even really Martin, that "everything about him is fake."
Yes, in case you haven't guessed, this special agent is apparently Bourne again, and if Legends itself falls short of instant-icon status (despite producers with Homeland and 24 among their credits), it's no fault of Bean's, who is riveting as he occasionally morphs into character before his colleagues' amazed eyes.

Alright, marshmallows, we waited seven years for this — and it was worth every frakking second!
The Veronica Mars movie was filled with all the secrets, romance and yes, even murder, that we've come to expect from the franchise. But how did the cast feel about some of the film's biggest twists? TVGuide.com spoke to the stars and creator Rob Thomas at the New York City premiere to weigh in on where Veronica (Kristen Bell) ended up, who she ended up with and more.

After what feels like the longest hiatus ever, Grey's Anatomy will finally return with 12 straight episodes beginning Thursday (9/8c, ABC) until the show's season finale in May.
When last we left the doctors of Grey Sloan Memorial, Jackson interrupted April's wedding to Matthew to declare his love for her, much to the shock and dismay of Stephanie and pretty much everyone else in attendance. Meanwhile, back at the hospital, Shane boldly and stupidly decided to be a hot shot and take the lead on an emergency surgery to fix the heart of Alex's father, which did not go well. So, what's next? TVGuide.com hit the set to get the scoop on each of the docs:
The Veronica Mars movie has an official release date: March 14.
According to Entertainment Weekly, which broke the news, creator Rob Thomas was hoping to debut the film exactly a year after launching the movie's Kickstarter campaign, which garnered $2 million in just the first day.

Oh, Grey's Anatomy, you had me at hello... and you lost me at Bailey's OCD.
I've stuck with the show that made Shonda Rhimes a household name through Izzie's (Katherine Heigl) ghost sex, the Alex/Ava saga, "Intern Fight Club," and even that god-awful musical episode. When people ask me why I'm still watching Grey's, currently limping through its 10th season, my response has always been: "I'm going down with that ship." But Season 10 has me on the verge of jumping overboard. Here are six reasons why I'm ready to give up on Grey's:
James Pickens Jr.

Grey's Anatomy has never been shy about killing off members of its cast — See: George, Lexie and Mark — so there was genuine fear this summer that Dr. Richard Webber (James Pickens Jr.), the heart of the hospital, could be the next on executive producer Shonda Rhimes' hit list.

At the close of Season 9, Webber was seemingly lifeless after being electrocuted when trying to turn on the generator during the super-storm. Picking up moments later, the Season 10 premiere saw...

Grey's Anatomy returns Thursday (9/8c, ABC) with a two-hour premiere that picks up just moments after the events of last season's finale, in which a super-storm ravaged the Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital. Meredith and Derek will be celebrating the birth of baby Bailey, Callie and Arizona will be struggling with the latter's infidelity, and Cristina and Owen will once again be on the outs. But there's oh so much more that will be happening at the hospital, so you might need a quick refresher on where we left off — and a juicy tease about what comes next in Season 10:
Things aren't looking too good for Heather (Tina Majorino) in this sneak peek of the Greys' Anatomy premiere.
After Bailey (Chandra Wilson) enlists Shane (Gaius Charles) to find Dr. Webber (James Pickens Jr.), the jealous intern lies to poor Mousey and says she's in charge of seeking out the missing surgeon.

The first trailer for Grey's Anatomy Season 10 is riddled with tears, explosions and — for one unlucky person — death.

Walt looks pretty sickly in the Breaking Bad flash-forward. Will we get more of those scenes in the final episodes? — Tom
ADAM: Probably not many. "Look to last year for the shape of [the season]," creator Vince Gilligan says. (Season 5 opened with a flash-forward, but didn't return to it again until Sunday's premiere.) However, as noted by Walt's return to chemotherapy, his health is of supreme interest to Gilligan & Co. "I don't know if lung cancer is ever cured," Gilligan says coyly. "It's a very insidious thing and you never know when it's going to rear its ugly head. We always kept that in mind and we want to pay off that initial story engine."
Will Abby and David get back together on Scandal this season? — Jones
NATALIE: Things are definitely not over between Abby and David...
