It's been five years since CBS premiered Harper's Island, and in the words of another famous island inhabitant, "We have to go back!" A woefully underrated horror murder mystery, the 13-episode series, which is available on Netflix, follows a group of family and friends that heads to the titular locale for a destination wedding, only to learn that there's a killer among them. At least one character gets whacked each episode, always in spectacular fashion. It was awesome, and it got the shaft (no pun intended). CBS canceled the show after moving it from Thursdays to Saturdays, natch, but if they know what's good for them, they'd bring back the dead.
Worst ways to go: TV's most outrageous deaths
Here are six reasons why CBS should resurrect Harper's Island — and why you should (re)watch.
Anna Wood, Cam Gigandet
There's no shortage of heat on CBS' new summer drama Reckless, and we're not just talking about the high temperatures in Charleston, S.C.
Thanks to the scorching hot chemistry between Jamie (Anna Wood) and Roy (Cam Gigandet), fans are already clamoring to know if...
Zoo by James Patterson, Michael Ledwidge
CBS has given a straight-to-series order for Zoo, based on James Patterson's novel of the same name, the network announced Tuesday.
Zoo is a global thriller about...
Britt Robertson, Colin Ford, Mackenzie Lintz

Over the course of Under the Dome's first season, many Chester's Mill residents have fallen victim to the power of the dome, but the death in the closing moments of the Season 2 premiere was especially shocking.
The second season picked up with...
Big Brother continued its "most twisted summer ever" on Thursday as it introduced viewers to the remaining contestants and revealed more about changes to the game this season.
Like last night, I will have some snap judgments on the new players, but first (!), some more details about this whole two Heads of Household twist....
Cam Gigandet and Anna Wood
Sex sells. Or at least that's what CBS is hoping with its newest legal drama Reckless. The series, which premieres Sunday at 9/8c, has been described as the network's "steamy" and "sultry" alternative to the normal summer network rerun blues and, more notably, to CBS' largely more PG-rated programming (with the exception of The Good Wife). But while this may be a venture into new territory for the network, creator and executive producer Dana Stevens promises that the show lives up to the hype, and then some.
"It's very sexy. We would make episodes where we'd be like, 'They are not going to...
Big Brother is back for what host Julie Chen (repeatedly) says will be the "most twisted summer ever." And the first twist of the season has already let us down.
Sure, there will be two Heads of Household this season, one of which may or may not be safe each week. Plus: America will get to select a secret three-person alliance to control throughout the summer. And even though it was only hinted at during Wednesday's premiere, eventually the two HOHs will compete in a new competition called "Battle of the Block" (which will play out for the first time ever in HD!) All of that falls somewhere on a spectrum from mildly amusing to pretty cool, but one decision about this season just doesn't sit right with us: It's premiere night and we only get to meet half the houseguests!
Big Brother: See the new houseguests in their bathing suits!
We understand the thinking...

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
