CW Star Finds
By Alissa Henry, Cameron FontanaPosted Feb 27, 2013
Television: In cold weather months, I always end up spending a lot more time in front of my television. Luckily, tis the “season” of mid-season premieres! This week, I watched Cult - a brand new series on the CW - and I loved it! It’s a show within a show about extreme fandoms complete with conspiracy, suspense, murder, mystery and, of course, good looking guys. It stars Vampire Diaries’ Jeff Setton, Supernatural’s Alona Tal and Prison Break’s Robert Knepper. It’s a cool, creepy, intriguing show and, for TV fans, it’s a dream (and nightmare) come true.
Where to find: The CW on Tuesday nights at 9 p.m.
Event: This weekend, Columbus will be invaded by 18,000 athletes who will compete in 46 sporting events in the largest sports festival in the world, even bigger than the Olympics. That’s right, this Thursday through Sunday is the Arnold Classic, and it’s celebrating its 25th Anniversary! Get ready for four days jam-packed with athleticism, competition and more than 700 exhibit booths showcasing the latest in fitness apparel, equipment and supplements. Plus you could bump into Schwarzenegger himself on your way from ping-pong to powerlifting. It’s a weekend that will PUMP YOU UP, and hopefully I’ll see you there!
