What Outlander's Writers Changed About That Epic Hurricane

  • BuzzSugar
The Outlander season three finale ends with a thrilling, emotional sequence when Claire, Jamie, and young Ian are leaving Jamaica to return to Scotland on the Artemis but are caught in a hurricane and wind up washing ashore in what will become the United States - Georgia, to be exact. And thus begins their adventure in the Colonies on the cusp of the Revolutionary War. The show did a remarkable job with the ending of the book, with some incredible shots of Claire sinking in the ocean and a beautiful, sweeping tracking shot of the Georgia coast. There was also a harrowing sequence of the storm that was part CGI and part soundstage, but all of it worked together to look incredibly realistic. The only thing we're disappointed about is that the show's writers changed the hurricane slightly and robbed viewers of a couple very exciting moments. We understand why

How “Jersey Shore” Completely Shaped What MTV is Today

Thirty-five years ago, MTV changed television forever. In 1981 the cable television channel began airing music videos making Generation X-ers very happy. A decade later MTV would change the face of television forever by introducing reality TV. PBS had done this with the documentary “An American Family” but MTV took it to another level. “The Real World” followed young adults as they faced life and responsibility. The show tackled controversial topics at the time including relationships, addiction, sex, discrimination and AIDs. Realty television became a new genre and became visible on just about every channel. Then came “Jersey Shore” which

You 100 Percent Recognize This Face on American Horror Story: Cult

One of Ryan Murphy's usual ensemble members made her American Horror Story: Cult debut in the latest episode, "Mid-Western Assassin," but like Emma Roberts, her time on this season is short-lived. Still, Mare Winningham's Sally Kefler is a memorable voice of reason . . . before the cult murders her in a staged suicide. It's a shame her appearance is so brief because Winningham is a fine actress. She has appeared in the previous Ahs seasons Coven, Freak Show, and Hotel as Alicia Spencer, Rita Gayheart, and Hazel Evers, respectively. She also has seven Emmy nominations (with two wins, for Amber Waves and George Wallace) and one Oscar nomination under her belt. Plus, she's one of the more obscure members of the 1980s "Brat Pack," so check her out in St. Elmo's Fire if you ever get a chance. Sally first bursts onto the scene in Cult during the city council

Demi Moore Reveals She's Missing Her Two Front Teeth

Demi Moore Reveals She's Missing Her Two Front Teeth
Demi Moore has long been a glamorous Hollywood icon. From her days as a soap opera actress on General Hospital, to her star turn in films like St. Elmo’s Fire and Ghost, the latter of which garnered her a Golden Globe nomination, and even Striptease which though it got mixed reviews at the time made her the highest-paid actress in film history. And while neither her career nor her major red carpet moments have slowed down in the slightest, things aren’t always quite as elegant as they may appear. A fact she revealed to Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show with a picture revealing that the actress has lost her front two teeth.

Kate Beckinsale Proposed to Rob Lowe as a 13-Year-Old--and He Said Yes!

Kate Beckinsale Proposed to Rob Lowe as a 13-Year-Old--and He Said Yes!
Who knew Kate Beckinsale was a member of Rob Lowe's fan club? The 43-year-old actress was rummaging through things at her "mum's house" Tuesday when she found a signed postcard from the '80s heartthrob. Lowe's note read, "Dear Kate, yes I will marry you. See you soon, Rob Lowe xxxxxx." Beckinsale didn't remember writing to the St. Elmo's Fire star, but she may have reached out to him via a local publication. The postcard was "one of a set of four" from Just Seventeen, hailed as "Britain's brightest weekly girl's magazine." Beckinsale tagged the actor on Instagram, but as of Wednesday, Lowe hasn't said anything. The actress couldn't help...

Watch Ryan Reynolds Flash His Bare Butt in New Nsfw 'Deadpool 2' Teaser

Watch Ryan Reynolds Flash His Bare Butt in New Nsfw 'Deadpool 2' Teaser
Ryan Reynolds is flashing some skin, and we're not upset about it!

The new teaser for Deadpool 2 -- which shows ahead of screenings of Logan -- dropped online Saturday, and from the get-go, it's clear that the Merc With a Mouth is still up to his cheeky ways.

Watch: Ryan Reynolds Shows Off His Lap Dancing Skills While Accepting Hasty Pudding Theatricals 'Man of the Year' Award

The nearly 4-minute Nsfw clip kicks off with Wade Wilson (Reynolds) listening to the St. Elmo's Fire theme song when he spots a man being robbed at gunpoint. Wilson then runs into a phone booth to change as the Superman theme song plays, providing us with a Deadpool specialty: mocking his fellow superheroes. 

The featurette features plenty of cursing, a cameo from Stan Lee, and, most importantly, a shot of Reynolds' bare booty (or his stunt double's) as he attempts to change into his skintight costume in the itty

Watch: Rob Lowe Is Self-Deprecating – and Buck Naked – in Roast Promo Parodying His '80s Sex Tape
Rob Lowe just went there.

In a promo for the upcoming Comedy Central Roast of Rob Lowe, the 52-year-old actor poked fun at his 1988 sex tape scandal with a "Sax Tape."

In the teaser, a buck naked Lowe (with private parts blurred, alas!) sets up a camera in his bedroom, turns around and does some, ahem, provocative wiggling as the "Love Theme from St. Elmo's Fire" plays in the background.

But, before your mind wanders too far, the Parks and Recreation alum turns his body and reveals that the instrument he's been adjusting is ... a saxophone.

Jon Cryer dishes 'Pretty in Pink,' 'Superman 4' and Charlie Sheen anecdotes on 'Howard Stern'
Jon Cryer was on Howard Stern Tuesday morning to promote the paperback edition of his 2015 memoir So That Happened, a book that laid bare a number of juicy details from his life in the Hollywood trenches. After breaking through as the lovable "Duckie" in Pretty in Pink, Cryer's career went into virtual freefall as his next several films -- including the legendary flop Superman IV: The Quest for Peace -- tanked at the box office. His fortunes turned only when he booked the soon-to-be-mega-hit series Two and a Half Men in 2003, but the years in between were filled with major missed opportunities and various other career disappointments -- by his own admission, he worked just three weeks as an actor over a three-year period. So what dirt did he have to spill during the Stern Show sit-down? Below I've rounded up the juiciest portions of the interview, from his Pretty in Pink

2015: The Year in Late-Night TV

2015: The Year in Late-Night TV
The landscape of late-night TV changed forever in May, when David Letterman said a few pungent final words: "In light of all this praise, merited or not, do me a favor. Save a little for my funeral." Then the host uttered his last "thank you and goodnight," introduced the Foo Fighters, and left the building, making no effort to hide how relieved he was to bail out of there. It's a totally different place without him. Like Steely Dan used to sing, daddy don't live in that New York City no more.

Audiences didn't see much of Rob Lowe in the last season of Parks and Recreation, but the town of Pawnee, Indiana – and its residents – is still on his mind.

John Oliver Takes on America's Sordid Love Affair With Chicken
John Oliver has been building momentum for Last Week Tonight by exposing the hypocrisy with which America treats its most beloved institutions.

As a National Poultry Council Board Member boasts, the industry currently produces about 160 million chickens a week. "160 million chicks a week! Those are Warren Beatty numbers!" Oliver exclaims. "Those are Rob Lowe at the St. Elmo's Fire premiere numbers.

'The Breakfast Club': Molly Ringwald and Ally Sheedy Look Back 30 Years Later (Exclusive)

Last week the Internet had a collective heart attack as it became apparent that the anniversary of the day that "The Breakfast Club" is supposed to take place happened 31 years earlier. Of course, "The Breakfast Club" is a movie and not a historical document (one that came out 30 years ago), but that doesn't matter. Because talking about John Hughes's immortal classic is fun and people will do it at every conceivable juncture.

"The Breakfast Club," of course, starred Emilio Estevez, Anthony Michael Hall, Judd Nelson, Molly Ringwald, and Ally Sheedy, as a group of disparate teens united for a Saturday's worth of detention (Paul Gleason very memorably essayed the role of the meddling principle -- "I make over $30,000 a year!"). Recently, to celebrate the movie's anniversary and commemorate the newly released (and truly incredible deluxe edition Blu-ray package), the film held a pair of screenings in Austin, Texas, as
