* Chad Michael Collins (Once Upon a Time, The Last Resort) will guest-star this fall on both Castle (in Episode 3, as an app inventor attacked by a “mysterious force”) and Bones (in Episode 4, as a motion-capture actor who crosses paths with B&B as they investigate the murder of a videogame creator).

* Starz’s Outlander on Saturday night grew for a second consecutive week, hitting a series high of 1 million total viewers (now up 38 percent from its well-watched premiere).

    Is The Intruders any good? I have it on my DVR but haven’t heard much talk about it.

    Bring back Rebecca

      Never have truer words been said. The creators should’ve done more to try and keep Claire Holt but she did the best thing for her career by distancing herself from this show. Of course, I’ll miss her and her scenes with Marcel; they were my favorite.

    It’s going to be tough for The Originals now that the TVD spin-off is moving to Mondays at 8 p.m. beginning October 6th and facing some tough competition against The Voice, DWTS, Gotham and CBS’ hour long comedy block.

    Outlander is exceeding all my expectations and hopes!! What a wonderful show! Thanks STARZ!!!! And thank you Ron Moore!

    I’m excited for The Originals to come back as it had one of the best finales of last season. The 8 shows I am most excited for the return of this fall are Nashville, Parenthood, The 100, The Originals, Revenge, Reign, Grey’s Anatomy and Sleepy Hollow. There were some pretty good cliffhangers we were left with and it’s been a long wait to see what’s going to happen with the various characters on these shows.
