Winning an Emmy is great and all, but for Elisabeth Moss — who’s nominated for two lead actress awards for work in two separate shows — Sunday’s ceremony is a chance for her to unleash her inner TV supernerd.
“That’s the best part,” says Moss, who is chasing trophies for Mad Men and Top of the Lake. “Getting nominated is flattering and awesome and cool, and then the second thing is you get to see all these people that you watch on TV and that you’re a fan of.
“I watch a lot a television; I’ve seen all the shows. Steve Carell, I met, and that was incredible … I met Mr. Bates (Downton Abbey actor Brendan Coyle) and literally had trouble speaking.”

I don’t want to give up my Xbox 360. The transition between the 360 and Xbox One is likely going to be a more gradual one than it was going from an Xbox to an Xbox 360 back in 2005. This means holding onto my 360 while still upgrading to the next generation.
Since I’m keeping my 360 and buying an Xbox One, I wanted to know what owning two Xbox consoles actually meant. Do they work together at all or are they two separate entities? I reached out to Microsoft and got some answers on what gamers who will own both consoles can expect from their Xboxes.

The remake of film series „V“ stages an alien race that secretly wants to take over the world and use humanity for breeding but is portraying itself as favorable for humanity by giving humanity their resources “for free”. Basically, one day the V’s arrive to Earth and propagate that they “are of peace, always”. Throughout the film series their true intentions are revealed, of course not in the eyes of public, as a small group called The Fifth Column tries to take them down.
There are several villains in this scenario, even some good characters in time become a bit evil such as agent Erica Evans played by Elizabeth Mitchell. However, the main villain is Anna (Morena Baccarin), the queen of the new alien visitors. So, what makes her evil? As she is the queen of the V’s she is in charge of their survival. One might say that she embodies certain patriotic beliefs to her alien race such as contempt towards human emotions – love in particular. These emotions are really bad for her race because it provides a form of individuality and certain unpredictability for the ones who are “infected” by them. This individuality produces the inability to control her race (and humans) by providing them Bliss – a super mental mind control power that eliminates all emotions and thus subdues the subjects involved plus healing certain diseases. And even when the viewers just might think that this Bliss is not such a bad idea Anna gives birth to a massive army of deadly alien soldiers that will take over the world. It is very soon that we find out that she is ruthless, purged from all emotions and gets her way with any means possible. She is able to mimic human emotions very convincingly in order to fool the publicity. She despises love, yet she manipulates it in order to get her way.
But not all goes smoothly for her, and this is what I liked about the character: at the point where her children (soldier army) are killed she starts to feel human emotion and has a burst of anger and despair followed by a rash decision that would later on give question to her authority. It is this point where in order to hide those emotions she becomes even more ruthless. Her actions speak of dictatorship “qualities” and extremely evil actions in order to preserve her integrity in front of her subjects which have started to question her leadership. At this point she means real business. She even brakes her own daughters legs.

I am a big fan of the Dragon Age Saga. I read the books and play the games on PS3 way too much. The Frostbite engine look sick….but I must suffer for some more time before this game comes out. I encourage those that are interested to check out the game play on this link:
