The drama series on ABC, "Chasing Life," is on its second season run at the network and recently, viewers got the biggest shock of their lives when one of the show's main characters met a shocking death. According to a report in Variety, the August 17 episode of the show featured the death of Leo Hendrie (played by Scott Michael Foster), the husband of the show's lead character, April Lauren Carver (played by Italia Ricci). Leo, like April, was also suffering from cancer.
The Variety report featured an interview with the show's executive producer who defended the show's decision to "kill off" Leo. Executive Producer Patrick Sean Smith first said that he was happy "to have an audience react so strongly and loudly" about what happened in the show, and that it was a "good thing."
Smith also said that for the show and its story to move forward, Leo's death was "necessary" especially for the "development of April's character." Given that the show was dealing with something as real as cancer, Smith mentioned that death was something they considered as a way of ending what he called "a big and epic relationship." Plus the fact that something this big and strong happening to April will really move the story along. more >>

In a Facebook post Monday, Seewald quoted from 1 John 1:8, "If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." more >>

With the continued success of Marvel's "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.," ABC is not stopping itself from coming up with new ideas for new shows at the network. According to an IGN report, Marvel has reportedly ordered a pilot for a spinoff of the "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D."
The spinoff, which is tentatively called "Marvel's Most Wanted", will reportedly star the character Mockingbird, otherwise known as Bobbi Morse in the hit superhero series. In the series, the character is played by Adrianne Palicki and with the pilot order, she is expected to cross over to the new series if needed. The project will also reportedly feature Morse's on-and-off partner Lance Hunter, who is played by Nick Blood.
The IGN report also mentioned that as early as April 2015, rumors about the spinoff project were already circulating but were quickly followed by news that it was no longer pushing through. more >>
Talking about fan bases, the show "Supernatural" has definitely one of the strongest out there. Going into its 11th year, the brothers' bond has definitely transcended beyond usual TV time. So, many fans continuously wonder what the boys will be bringing every season. It isn't news that the brothers will take on a threat so ancient that it predates even the Angels, but the question that follows is how it will affect the Winchesters' relationship.
Comic Book Resources reports that Supernatural showrunners Jeremy Carver and Andrew Dabb recently spoke in Comic-Con International in San Diego about the rumor surrounding the season's plot lines. Dabb talked about how the season will start off having the boys "on the same page." Not unusual for the Winchesters to take responsibility of the various "evil" that has been plaguing the earth every season, it would be the same once more as they are banded by their intent to save as much as they can. Dabb is quoted saying, "Sam and Dean are suddenly on the same page. Everybody wants the same thing, but their approach may be a little different. That's where I think you'll see bumps in the road."
Furthermore, Carver and Dabb were also asked about the new character that may be causing trouble this season. The character's name is Amara, who will be connected to the Darkness, and her unfamiliarity with the modern-day world is what will make her stand out. Dabb describes how Amara came to be and how she adjusts to her new surroundings. He explains, "She has been locked away since the dawn of creation. She has a very interesting point of view with how she approaches everything." more >>
