After six action-packed seasons, even a show about a sociopath in sheep’s clothes can get stale. Thankfully, this season, things are taking an
interesting turn as Dexter must “break code” and share his secret with a
significant character — and the implications are hefty.

Louis C.K.’s dark comedy offers serious
commentary on show business, parenting and life’s unexplainable quirks,
making Louie more than just a sitcom about the fictionalized life of a foul-mouthed comedian.

The 1920s is an era romanticized and
glorified, often by individuals who weren’t even alive at the time. Boardwalk Empire takes what we love about the ’20s, backed with
historically based events and characters, and serves it up with whole a
lot of darkness.

Golden Globe winner to sign new children's book July 29
In Glee, Kurt Hummel may have graduated from Lima, Ohio's McKinley High, but actor Chris Colfer will return his character's home state this summer while promoting and signing his new children's book, The Land of Stories: The Wishing Spell.Colfer, a 22-year-old Emmy nominee and Golden Globe winner, found time between takes on Glee to write a modern-day fairy tale for children ages 8 and older. He will discuss and sign the book at 3:30 p.m. July 29 at Joseph-Beth Booksellers in Rookwood Pavilion.From Amazon: "Alex and Conner Bailey's world is about to change, in this fast-paced
adventure that uniquely combines our modern day world with the
enchanting realm of classic fairy tales. The Land of Stories tells the tale of twins Alex and Conner.
Through the mysterious powers of a cherished book of stories, they leave
their world behind and find themselves in a foreign land full of wonder
and magic where they come face-to-face with the fairy tale characters
they grew up reading about. But after a series of encounters
with witches, wolves, goblins, and trolls alike, getting back home is
going to be harder than they thought."Portraying an openly gay character on Glee (and being open about his own sexuality) has made Colfer somewhat of an icon in the LGBTQ community. After winning his 2011 Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor, he used his acceptance speech to support kids who watch the show that deal with bullies and naysayers. Colfer was bullied not only as Kurt on Glee, but in real life and resorted to homeschooling when he was in seventh and eighth grade. Check out his sweet, inspired speech below.Screw that, indeed!The Land of Stories is available for sale July 17. Reserve your copy in advance at Joseph-Beth, as it is anticipated that the book will sell out before Colfer's appearance.

That one random kid Kanye West was following on Twitter has been replaced ... by Justin Bieber. The two tweeted about working on a song together and, not long after, the duo turned into a trio with the addition of Wu-Tang Clan's Raekwon. While little Bieber referred to the collaboration as "EPIC," we're all sitting back with our "Huh?" faces on.
