Receiving an unintentionally painful initiation by an iconic droid is as good an introduction as any to the obsessive world of sci-fi fandom.
Canadian actress Marie Avgeropoulos was at the massive San Diego Comic-Con International last year to promote the trippy CW sci-fi drama, The 100. While the show had yet to air, fans were already quizzing its young stars about plot points and characters.
“I’ve never seen anything like that in my life,” says Avgeropoulos, in a phone interview from her home in Los Angeles. “At one point R2-D2 rolled over... Read More

After what feels like the 100th variation on the same show, CW finally got it startlingly right. Granted, you could be forgiven if you are ready, sight unseen, to dismiss The 100 (* * * out of four) as yet another CW excuse to plant pretty young people in some sci-fi/fantasy universe where a battle between good and evil plays out behind their more essential efforts to hook up. And indeed, the opening moments of the show are not particularly promising, as this story of a hundred teenage interstellar survivors of the nuclear Armageddon landing on a depopulated earth...

Inside Meredith and Derek's bedroom on the Grey's Anatomy set, a very naughty Patrick Dempsey climbs on top of his costar and friend of six-plus years, Ellen Pompeo, and admonishes there is to be "no thrusting."

Survival isn't who you are. It's who you become.
Set 97 years after a nuclear war has destroyed civilization, when a spaceship housing humanity's lone survivors sends 100 juvenile delinquents back to Earth in hopes of possibly re-populating the planet.
[On being fired from Grey`s Anatomy]: I apologized and showed my remorse for what I said and for the pain I caused anyone. If a black man can`t get forgiveness in this country, when so many other people like Robert Downey, Jr. and the governor of California get second and third chances...
