[BRIGHTCOVE "4616410390001"] Even people who never watched the original run of Dallas probably know that one of the series' major plotlines can be summed up in three simple words: "Who shot J.R.?" In the final moments of the show's third season finale, J.R. Ewing (Larry Hagman), the show's scheming villain but also arguably its central character, was seen getting shot by an offscreen assailant.

Celebrate the History of Sadie Hawkins Day – in Real Life and on TV

Celebrate the History of Sadie Hawkins Day – in Real Life and on TV

Originally posted 11/11/2015 03:25PM

Everyone knows that a Sadie Hawkins dance is the yearly high school tradition in which the girls ask guys out – even if they have no idea who Sadie Hawkins is. In fact, most people probably know this even if their particular high school didn't offer any such opportunity to reverse gender norms.

Why, then, is it so celebrated? Well, for one it's long been a staple of pop culture and of teen-centered TV shows in particular. In fact, a lot of people may have only ever experienced a Sadie Hawkins dance through TV. And TV shows are still doing it today, even if we've gotten to a point in American society where it wouldn't be all that strange for a girl to ask a guy to prom, homecoming or any other major dance. (Actually, it wouldn't be so out of left field for a girl to ask a girl, a guy to ask a guy, or any other combination these days either.)

In honor of Sadie Hawkins Day, which is generally celebrated in early November, we're recounting its history and its long life as a plot device in TV shows.

Veronica Mars Creator Says Show Could Return as Limited Series

[YOUTUBE "iwmzhfIFCxM"] Fellow Veronica Mars fans, we may yet return to the sordid city of Neptune one day.

Rob Thomas, creator of the series, says he could see Kristen Bell returning as everyone's favorite smartmouthed detective possibly for another movie or maybe even a limited series at some point, though he qualified that by saying that such talk was only preliminary.

"Kristen's game. I'm certainly game," Thomas said in an interview with TVLine.

"We have nothing in the works. Kristen and I have talked about possibly doing a second movie or taking it out as a short run series. A Veronica Mars True Detective is really appealing to us."

Before Entourage: Charlie's Angels, Star Trek and More TV Series on the Big Screen

Originally posted 06/01/2015 06:00PM

[YOUTUBE "SGSE_XPF4_g"] This week, Entourage fans get to watch the boys bring their brand of Hollywood bro-ishness to the big screen, nearly four years after the TV series aired its final episode. Of course, it's far from the first cinematic adaptation of a TV series, but in this age of reboot upon reboot, it's notable that this one has migrated to the silver screen intact – it's a movie "sequel" featuring the same actors and characters as the original TV show.
