So I’ve played P.T., also known as “Playable Teaser” for the newest game in the Silent Hill franchise, twice now. I want to start off by saying that there is so much going on in this teaser that I would have to go on for hours, plus I don’t want to tell you everything because I urge you to play it if you can. If you don’t have access to a PS4, however, I will be including a video at the end of someone playing the game in its entirety. Also, I’m a huge Silent Hill fangirl, and my husband (who played the game with me both times) is a huge Hideo Kojima fanboy. So we both loved this demo.
Happy Outlander Day! We’re about an hour away from the (new) second episode, which I’m absolutely looking forward to, but we already have some more news to celebrate. Not only was Outlander STARZ’s most popular series premiere, but also yesterday, the cable network announced that they will be renewing Outlander for Season 2! The second season, based on the book Dragonfly in Amber (sequel to Outlander), will have at least 13 episodes.
If you haven’t seen all of the “Ice Bucket Challenges” going around on social media then you have been living under a rock possibly. ALS is amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, but you probably know it better as Lou Gehrig’s disease. It’s a fatal disease that makes people who get it lose muscle control, including the ability to eat, speak, and breathe. Life expectancy for those with it is between two and five years, and the only drug available for it is only able to extend that by a few months.
The challenge involves daring a person to dump a bucket of ice water over their head within the next 24 hours, or else donate money — usually $100 — toward fighting ALS. Even if a person completes the challenge, they’re more than welcome to donate money too. Which is what a ton of celebrities have been doing! (Justin Timberlake, Jimmy Fallon, Lucy Hale, and many many more!) Robbie Amell challenged Stephen Amell and thus resulted in this shirtless video of him participating! We also get to see Colton Haynes and Willa Holland help! Check it out and consider donating $5 to this amazing cause:http://www.alsa.org/donate/
Outlander‘s official twitter account just released another sneak peek of Saturday’s upcoming episode! Check out the video below–in the scene, Claire (Caitriona Balfe) meets Mrs. FitzGibbons (Annette Badland) and continues to use her medical skills to help Jamie (Sam Heughan).
Earlier this week, we got another preview of Episode 2 –in that scene Jamie is asking to take Laoghaire’s punishment, while Claire, Geillis Duncan, and the rest of the MacKenzies look on.
I’m definitely looking forward to seeing Claire make herself at home at Leoch! Make sure to check out the full episode when it airs this Saturday at 9:00p on STARZ!
Earlier this week, we posted a first look at Crawley grandchildren, who are slightly older and super adorable in the upcoming season! And as if that wasn’t exiting enough, Harper’s Bazaar and ITV just released these new photos of Downton Abbey‘s full season 5 cast! Check them out below!
I’m so looking forward to the new season of Downton Abbey! Unfortunately, we’re still about 5 months away from the U.S. premiere of season 5, but thankfully, the show’s official twitter account just gave us a little teaser.
But it seems that the new season (as usual) will kick off with a pretty significant time jump! In these new official photos, we see that George and Sybbie have gotten pretty big!
In the new season Oliver and Zac Barker will play Master George Crawley and Fifi Hart will play Miss Sybbie Branson.
Remember that Season 5 premieres January 4, 2015.
With Outlander‘s official premiere this past Saturday, STARZ is reporting that that it’s the cable network’s most popular series premiere in its history! According to Variety:
Nielsen estimates that more than 720,000 watched the series opener of “Outlander” on Saturday night, and a total of 2.3 million watched during its opening weekend on the Starz flagship channel alone. Roughly 51% of those adults watching were female, the network said.
Early reporting of the week-long on-demand, online platforms and affiliate TVE services yielded an additional 1.4 million to date, bringing the total to 3.7 million and counting.
This is such a great way to kick things off! I’ve definitely been rewatching the first episode and re-experiencing my favorite moments–the druids dancing at Craigh na Dun, the first time Jamie calls Claire Sassenach, Claire’s potty mouth, and more!
The first episode was fantastic, but I know we’re all looking forward to the new episode this upcoming Saturday! Check out this video of a sneak peek of episode 2–it’s the scene where Jamie takes Laoghaire’s punishment!
