'Pretty Little Liars' react: Confessions of a high school English teacher

Spoiler alert: If you haven’t watched the Feb. 18 episode of Pretty Little Liars, stop reading now!

Alright Liars, what do you think?! Was Ezra telling the truth? Is there still hope for Ezria? And why was that ski lift still operating? Let’s discuss it all! READ FULL STORY

'True Blood' star Rutina Wesley teaches kids the word 'plan,' meets some vampire Muppets on 'Sesame Street' -- VIDEO

When True Blood star Rutina Wesley visited Sesame Street, she probably didn’t plan on meeting any vampires (the Count wasn’t around that day). But Tara Thornton’s real-life alter ego still managed to encounter some fellow vampires when she filmed a segment for the PBS show last June.

“My fangs are still growing in,” Elmo told Wesley, proudly baring his big toothless grin. The furry red monster and scene partner Abby Cadabby then presented the guest star with their best vampire hisses. (So faerie-vampires do exist.)

Wesley joined Elmo and Abby for Sesame Street‘s “Word on the Street” segment to teach kids about the word “plan.” Check out her guest appearance in the video below, then read on for more of EW’s details from the set. READ FULL STORY

'Star Wars Rebels' introduces new reluctant series hero, Ezra -- VIDEO

The new animated series Star Wars Rebels is the latest spin-off to come out of George Lucas’ epic space opera, and when the show premieres on the Disney Channel later this year, fans will see the rise of the Rebellion through the eyes of a 14-year-old con artist named Ezra.

Executive producer Dave Filoni and voice actor Taylor Gray share some insight into Star Wars‘ new reluctant hero in a behind-the-scenes video that premiered Friday. Find out more about Ezra in the new clip below: READ FULL STORY

'My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic': See Fluttershy sing her heart out -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

As her name implies, Fluttershy isn’t the most outgoing pony in Equestria. But that doesn’t mean she can’t cut loose every now and then — provided nobody’s watching.

In this clip from the next episode of My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic, Fluttershy unleashes her gorgeous voice for a group of her admiring animal pals. She’d never perform in front of a group of other ponies, though — unless she could do it in disguise. Which is where a pony singer who’s lost his voice, an important charity concert, and Zecora’s mysterious remedies come in.

Get a glimpse at the episode below. READ FULL STORY

'My Little Pony Equestria Girls': Yes, there will be a sequel. And we've got a clip! EXCLUSIVE

Thought the adventures of My Little Pony‘s Equestria Girls — pony-human hybrids who share the names and personalities of My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic‘s Mane 6 — ended when Twilight Sparkle escaped back through the portal to Canterlot High?

Think again. (Also, the previous sentence makes sense — I promise.)

Hasbro Studios reveals exclusively to EW that it will release a second Equestria Girls movie later this year. The film’s plot is under wraps for now — but given this teaser and the film’s title, My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks, it’s safe to assume that music will play a larger role than ever. Get ready to shake your tail and watch the clip below:


Get ready to say goodbye to 'Good Luck Charlie' -- EXCLUSIVE CLIP

Big changes are afoot for the Duncan family. Oldest sister Teddy is heading off to college. Youngest sister Charlie is developing a feisty personality. And their show itself is wrapping up for good — Sunday, Feb. 16 marks Good Luck Charlie‘s series finale.

Naturally, the hourlong event will be filled with teary eyes, hugs — and, of course, plenty of gentle jokes. All three have a place in this exclusive clip from the series’s last episode, which finds the Duncans sitting down for Teddy’s last breakfast at home. Warning: You might just find yourself getting misty as well.


'Pretty Little Liars' react: Pretty little noir

After that episode, I can only hope that the inside of my mind is half as fascinating, beautiful, and dramatic as Spencer’s. Perhaps I should start watching Scorsese’s Mean Streets every night before I fall asleep. But that’s neither here nor there, because we need to talk about all the black-and-white goings on in Rosewood … but really in Spencer’s version of Rosewood. Confused, yet? Well, we’re just getting started.

After Hanna, Emily, and Spencer found Ali’s journal (a little too easily) inside Ezra’s desk, they figured that he was one of the people at the cabin that night. But who was the other? Mona? It seemed highly likely, but considering everyone’s brain was “full,” they decided to press pause on the brainstorming for the night. Hanna and Emily left Spencer alone to watch her favorite film noir and pop some more pills. One on-screen gunshot later, and Rosewood was without color. Welcome to “Shadow Play,” Liars!

Carol Burnett guest stars in 'Curious George' season premiere -- EXCLUSIVE


Everyone’s favorite monkey is returning to TV screens with a new season of Curious George.

Carol Burnett guest stars in the season premiere as Curious George’s Great Aunt Sylvia, who is coming for a visit. In an exclusive clip from the show, Curious George oh-oh-ah-ahs with excitement when his beloved aunt arrives — and even better, she comes bearing gifts! Little George is happy to unwrap a monkey-sized front loader. As Great Aunt Sylvia explains, “I drove the real thing when I was in construction.” She gets a loving hug as a thank you, but later they discover the front loader is defective. Keeping with its educational theme, the show then follows George and Sylvia as they try to figure out how to fix the toy.


'Pretty Little Liars' react: The cabin in the woods

Is it just me, or is anyone else incredibly excited that Wren is back in the mix?! (Even if it’s only his name.) Personally, I think he and Ezra would make for one very attractive evil duo. Then again, I’m not sure I want Wren to be bad. Thoughts? Think it over while I recite the takeaways from tonight’s adventure in Rosewood. READ FULL STORY

'Ravenswood' finale react: Hanna's back, (some) mysteries solved

“It’s complicated” might as well be the tagline for this series. No one on the show seems to know how to explain, well, anything, and that kind of makes sense: Ravenswood is one crazy place. And since tonight was the season finale, Ravenswood is (somehow) even crazier than usual. Or as Caleb would tell us, “it’s complicated.”

Hanna returns to Ravenswood for a surprise visit. Why didn’t she call Caleb? Because she likes surprises, duh. Caleb broke up with her, so the real reason she came was to beat up Miranda who she thinks is The Other Woman. When Caleb breaks the news to her that Miranda is dead, and better yet, that he can still see Miranda, she is bewildered. Maybe you don’t like surprises as much as you thought, Hanna! What makes the scene creepy– because this is Ravenswood, after all– is that halfway through the conversation between Hanna and Caleb, Miranda appears. “She thinks you’re crazy,” she tells Caleb. He takes the cue: “You know, for a while, I thought that I might be crazy, but I’m not.” Real convincing, Caleb.

This is hard for Hanna to hear. She was the one who told Caleb to stay in Ravenswood and take care of Miranda. Then she thought he was in love with Miranda. And now she finds out Miranda is dead. At this point, she’s back to liking Miranda and the urge to beat her up has subsided. Instead, she talks to Miranda, meaning she sits in an empty room and rambles on to seemingly no one. She explains why she thought Caleb was in love with the now-ghost, and Miranda hears this and gets excited. Miranda’s affection for Caleb is tough to watch because it’s not like she’s actively trying to take Caleb from Hanna– she likes Hanna and seems to want them to be together. I feel bad for her, but also am Team Hanna and Caleb Forever, so I don’t feel too bad.
