"Fargo" pulled off two of the coolest character introductions ever tonight. We don't even know their names – and never will – but we know their dynamic. And we like it a lot.
In the opening scene of "Fargo" Episode 2 (Tuesdays at 10 p.m. on FX), titled "The Rooster Prince," we met two heavies – "We're from Fargo" – played by Adam Goldberg and Russell Harvard, and they seemed like your typical thuggish henchmen (albeit in some very interesting outfits)… until they started signing to each other. Watch their introduction here:
This isn't the first time American Sign Language (ASL) has been seen on the small screen recently, but it is the first time it's been shown totally out of context. No subtitles and a very obvious discrepancy between what was being signed and what was being said meant that the "Fargo" audience was just as out of the loop as the other characters on the show.
'Scandal' Deep Thoughts: Bellamy Young on Mellie's Crazy Year and Whether or Not Little Jerry's Big Sneeze Was ContagiousMaggie Furlong at Yahoo TV1 day ago
We still have a bit of a "Scandal" hangover, and we're not alone. "I'm in withdrawal," Bellamy Young told Yahoo TV, which makes sense considering Mellie's season of insanity. "It's been a crazy year. And she's been through so much this season — last year was the pregnancy and the birth and everything, but this year was the rape and the affair and my son dying, and oh! It's been a lot."

"Orphan Black" came back with a vengeance (Season 2 airs Saturdays at 9 p.m. on BBC America) with every single clone (all played by Tatiana Maslany) feeling the pressure. Co-creators John Fawcett and Graeme Manson teased the next level of the show's conspiracy, but we didn't think Cosima — and Sarah pretending to be Cosima — would go so deep into Dyad so quickly. So what's next? Keep reading for some spoiler-free teases... and more on Felix's (Jordan Gavaris) amazing first scene back.
Felix in the club was amazing — the a--less chaps! Graeme: We like Jordan's butt, what can we say? [Laughs.]
John: [Laughs.] It's true. We do. We always wanted to put Felix a little bit more in his element, in the club, out with his friends… what's really fun about that is to bring Sarah into an environment like that, looking like a drowned rat, freaking out, can't get a hold of anyone, and find Felix in a--less chaps high on ecstasy, at the worst possible time. That's just me and Graeme kind of having a little fun with the characters.

"Orphan Black" is finally back for more clone-tastic action (Season 2 premieres Saturday, April 18 at 9 p.m. on BBC America), and co-creators John Fawcett and Graeme Manson promise exactly that in Season 2 — more action! Yahoo TV caught up with them to see what they'd tease about this bigger, badder season, new threats, the possibility of more clones, and the next level of the show's conspiracy.
The end of last season basically exploded, and everything we knew was in question — what can you tease about where we pick back up in Season 2? John: Well we always knew that the huge cliffhanger of Kira missing, and Mrs. S. missing also, that we were going to pick up right where we left off, with very little lapse in time. We just wanted it to kind of come out of the gates with a roar, you know? That was really important as a launching point for Season 2 — action!

Huck and Quinn are moving up the ranks to become the most complicated relationship on "Scandal" — and that's saying a lot. From co-workers to co-torturers to lovers, these two have been through it all. But now that Huck's family is back in the mix, and Quinn said those three little words, where does the fan-favorite duo stand?

Hate to break it to you, Gladiators, but those of you still shipping Olivia (Kerry Washington) and Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) on "Scandal" need to hear the harsh reality: Olitz is doomed. And that's not just because she quit her job and flew off into the sunset with Jake Ballard (Scott Foley) in the Season 3 finale… that's because she chose to stop fighting with Fitz and fighting for Fitz, and in that moment, it was over. Forever. Don't get me wrong — I think that in a different time and place, under totally different circumstances, Olivia and Fitz are completely meant to be together and could live happily ever after making babies and jam in Vermont. But Shonda Rhimes doesn't do sci-fi. This is real life (or at least TV "real life"), and their lives are really messed up. Irreparably so.
How is "Hannibal" playing in international markets? This Korean commercial for the NBC drama is very telling... and surprisingly hilarious. We all know Hannibal is dreamy, and the man can dress, but are they forgetting the fact that he's a serial killing cannibal?
Take a look at this trailer from Korea's AXN Network:
But what are they saying? And why are Hannibal (Mads Mikkelsen) and Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) so sparkly? We translated it so you don't have to guess.
After the announcer says that "Hannibal is rewriting the history of American dramas," he says that Mads Mikkelsen is getting a lot of interest and praise for his "great acting and sexy appeal."
Some of the comments shown as Hannibal is sparkling like an angel: "Love Mads Mikkelsen"; "His acting is the best"; "Gasp Gasp Mads Mikkelsen is so hot"; "The acting is better than the movie"; "No words to describe how hot he looks in the suit."
And then there's this:
In red it says: "He’s so sexy." Well, yeah, posing like that we guess he is.
Gladiators, it's handled.
Last week we shared a photo of some "Scandal" wine glasses that Things Remembered sent to our offices, and your response was overwhelming... jealousy.

We've got an exclusive sneak peek at "Orange Is the New Black's" new Season 2 trailer, and with less than two months left until the new season premieres (June 6 on Netflix), we're celebrating just as much as the inmates appear to be:
But as you can see, it's not all fun and games. After last season's shocking finale, Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling) is seen being released from solitary with a whole new zen-psycho, "lone wolf" attitude:
Yikes. We also get more insight into newcomer Vee (Lorraine Toussaint), who told Yahoo TV about her past with Red (Kate Mulgrew)... and now it looks like she has an interesting future ahead with Crazy Eyes (Uzo Aduba):
She's smitten! And we've all seen what happens when Suzanne is smitten...
There's also another new inmate that we haven't heard much about — probably because she seems completely shell-shocked:

Esquire Network's "Knife Fight" is like those intense "Top Chef" Quickfire Challenges on speed: Chefs are working head-to-head, ticking clock taunting them, to crank out dishes unique and delicious enough to impress some of their own.
But Season 2 (premieres Tuesday, April 15 at 9 p.m. with a special one-hour episode) looks to be even "Top Chef"-ier, thanks to host Ilan Hall (winner of "Top Chef" Season 2) bringing in more of his fellow Bravo competition alums. We've got an exclusive sneak peek at the Season 2 premiere, featuring Mike Isabella (Season 6 and Season 8's "All-Stars" edition, where he was runner-up) and Tim Love (from "Top Chef Masters" Season 1).
Watch our exclusive sneak peek of the "Knife Fight" Season 2 premiere:
"This season we changed it up a bit and stretched across the entire country in search of talent from all regions," Hall told Yahoo TV. "This proved to bring some interesting flavor."
