Dancing With the Stars Watch: Top 7 Dance Through the Ages

Dance off, pants on

Welcome back to Dancing With the Stars, where each week we are getting ever closer to sending someone home with a Mirror Ball Trophy to squish onto their mantelpiece. While this week was supposed to be topped off with a dramatic double elimination, Derek Hough ruined all our fun by getting injured during rehearsals, breaking his toe and spraining his ankle. Since Sasha Farber is stepping in for him on the dance floor this week, the producers didn’t think it would be fair to potentially cut them. Instead, one couple is leaving, and one couple will earn immunity from elimination.

Not content to just make the couples learn one routine, the producers force the remaining couples to compete in a dance-off to earn extra judges’ points in an effort to increase their overall score. At the end of the night, one couple will be sent home.

Here’s what happened on this week’s Dancing With the Stars:

Riker Lynch and Allison Holker: Before taking to the dance floor for a 1920s-themed quickstep, Riker just happened to mention that Len Goodman had not yet given out a 10 this season. He then delivered a high-speed routine tailor-made to appeal to Len. At the end of the dance, Len was pleased, but it was Bruno Tonioli who called Riker the “twinkletoes of the field of dreams,” which is probably Bruno’s highest PG-rated compliment. While the rest of the judges thought the routine was solid, but not outstanding, Len dutifully delivered his first 10 of the season. 37/40

Chris Soules and Witney Carson: At this point, even Chris is probably shocked to still be in the competition. Is this the furthest that a Bachelor has made it on Dancing With the Stars? After last week’s “breakthrough,” Chris is faced with the challenge of a 1940s foxtrot, where he is playing a sailor on shore leave. Chris continued his upward mobility, and the judges applauded his slow-steady progress, which was presumably inspired by the story of that man who drove to Iowa on a tractor. 31/40

Rumer Willis and Val Chmerkovskiy: Rumer’s dad, a.k.a. Bruce Willis, happened to stop by her rehearsal space and remind voters that he was in Die Hard and could easily ruin your next Christmas party if you don’t vote for his daughter. Well, he didn’t actually say that, but it was heavily implied. For their jive, they went to a hop in a hair salon in the 1950s. The judges liked the routine, but thought Rumer has lost some of her sparkle and want her to have it back. It seems like a case where she set the bar too high too early in the competition. 35/40

Noah Galloway and Sharna Burgess: Amy Purdy, a Dancing With the Stars runner-up and double below-the-knee amputee, stopped by Noah’s dressing room to give him a pep talk and remind him that all of this was doable. (Although Amy did admit that she was “lucky” because she still has her knees, which made dancing easier, which is just further proof of how incredible these two individuals are.) Sharna choreographed a solid 1970s-themed jazz routine complete with eyebrow-raising hip thrusts that had Carrie Ann Inaba on her feet with arms in the air, and Erin Andrews grinning wickedly throughout their postdance interview. 36/40

Robert Herjavec and Kym Johnson: Kym did not have an easy job choreographing a 1980s-themed Argentine tango, but she pulled it off a routine set to a weird, sultry, slowed down version of Cameo’s “Word Up.” Len said the duo was up and down like a game of Chutes and Ladders, and this week, they were up. Carrie Ann enjoyed the routine, but thought Robert still hadn’t mastered the timing and was distracted by Kym’s womanliness or something. 31/40

Nastia Liukin and Sasha Farber: While Derek was sidelined by his injuries, he still managed to insert himself into the dance by busting a move from the seat of the subway car they built on stage while Sasha did the heavy lifting. The routine was a “modern Charleston” set to Andy Grammer’s updated honkytonk song “Honey, I’m Good,” and as Julianne Hough said, they killed it. Carrie Ann came out to give Nastia a hug for her hard work, especially with a new partner. 38/40

Willow Shields and Mark Ballas: Once again, Mark has decided to choreograph for his inner child, choreographing this week’s “futuristic jazz” routine to MGMT’s “Electric Feel” dressed as ninja warriors. The number was dynamic and intricate, or in Bruno speak, it had a “mystic, hypnotic quality.” Carrie Ann gave her entire critique in Japanese, because she can, but probably said that the overarching lesson of this season is that Mark’s ideal partner is a 14-year-old girl. 37/40

Dance Off, Round One, Riker and Allison vs. Willow and Mark: Bruno said it was like trying to choose between “chocolate and vanilla” with their fast-paced salsa routines. While Twitter loved Riker, the judges loved Willow’s moves and they unanimously gave Willow and Mark the win and the extra points.

Dance Off, Round Two, Noah and Sharna vs. Robert and Kym: Both couples delivered solid, if not particularly inspiring cha-cha routines, and when they faced the judges, Tom Bergeron helpfully reminded everyone that if there is a tie, Len, as head judge, gets the deciding vote. Naturally that announcement was followed by a tie between the four judges. Len gave the round to Noah and Sharna.

Dance Off, Round Three, Chris and Witney vs. Rumer and Val: Both couples delivered smooth foxtrots, but despite Chris’ best efforts and breakthroughs, he was outclassed on the dance floor and knew it. No surprise when Rumer and Val won the face off unanimously and added two points to their already high score.

Who Went Home: When the hosts announced that both Robert and Chris were safe, it was clear that something was awry. Sure enough, despite consistently high scores, Willow was sent home. While she’s been very mature on the dance floor, she is only 14 years old and burst into tears at the news. Tom had no choice but to put aside his hosting duties long enough to give Willow a dad hug in her time of need.

This Video Puts All the Studio Ghibli Easter Eggs in One Incredible Supercut

Including Easter eggs from My Neighbor Totoro and Howl's Moving Castle

Hayao Miyazaki is a master animator, but he’s also a master of guerrilla marketing. A new video from YouTube channel Movie Munchies shows how Miyazaki subtly snuck the name of his animation studio, Studio Ghibli, into his films, including on a bus billboard in Kiki’s Delivery Service and multiple times into Porco Rosso.

Miyazaki also planted little reminders — or Easter eggs — of his past work into his films, which until now, were only there for eagle-eyed fans and repeat viewers. Examples of Miyazaki playing homage to his past work include a Jiji the Cat pillow in a bedroom in Spirited Away, a Castle in the Sky character walking down the street in Howl’s Moving Castle and a Totoro book on the shelf in the library in Whispers of the Heart. He even managed to take a page out of Alfred Hitchcock’s and Stan Lee’s books and inject a little caricature of himself into the films.

TIME Last Week Tonight

Watch John Oliver Use Free Lunch to Remind Fashion CEOs That Sweatshops Are Bad

Extremely cheap meat, anyone?

On Last Week Tonight, John Oliver turned his gimlet eye on fashion (a.k.a. fun you can buy).

Americans buy roughly 64 items of clothing per person per year, according to Oliver. That fashion habit comes thanks to the low prices available at fast-fashion retailers like H&M, Zara and Forever 21 — nationwide outfitters that, according to Oliver, allow “Midwestern tweens to dress like fortysomething alcoholics attending the funeral of a Tel Aviv nightclub owner.”

But there’s another dark side to cheap clothing, according to Oliver. When H&M sells a dress for $4.95 — which Oliver notes was 7¢ more expensive than a DVD of Ghosts of Girlfriends Past — and yet the CEOs of H&M and Zara are some of the richest men in the world, it’s clear something is awry. On Last Week Tonight, Oliver took fast-fashion companies, including Walmart and Gap, to task for the fact that sweatshops and child labor are still commonly used to manufacture high-street clothing.

Then, for a lesson in manufacturing oversight, Oliver kindly sent extremely cheap lunches of indeterminate origin to the CEOs of fashion companies that employ cheap labor.

Watch Terry Crews TKO Mike Tyson on Lip Sync Battle

It's a knockout fight

On Thursday’s Lip Sync Battle, former NFL star Terry Crews faced off against heavyweight champion and face tattoo enthusiast Mike Tyson in a battle for the Internet ages — and they were both ready to rumble.

Crews delivered a particularly stirring rendition of Vanessa Carlton’s heartfelt anthem “A Thousand Miles,” which he originally debuted in the 2004 film, White Chicks. He started his performance seated at the piano, accompanying his lip syncing with some faux piano playing. Crews then kicked it up a notch, jumping on top of the piano, adding in some rhythmic gymnastics, and making the crowd swoon by ripping off his white blazer to pump his pecs in time with the beat.

While Crews tugged at the heartstrings, Tyson went for the knockout with a stellar performance of Salt-N-Pepa’s classic “Push It.” While Tyson’s lip syncing was lackluster in that he kept forgetting to do it, he earned points for his extreme dance moves in his extra tight pants.

The winner by decision? There’s a new champion: Crews.

Dancing With the Stars Watch: Spring Break and Heartache

Group dance!

Welcome to spring break, Dancing With the Stars style. This week’s festivities celebrated all things spring break (which must be said in the style of James Franco’s character in Spring Breakers at all times). Normally a spring-break theme would be an excuse to wear a tiny swimsuit on stage, since the stars of this show wear them every week, most opted for more traditional spring break attire a.k.a. ball gowns. Not only did the shining stars have to perform individual routines, but tonight marked the inaugural group dance. One extra addition to the festivities is that this recap was recorded live from Hollywood and certain eagle-eyed television watchers could have seen a producer scolding a woman in the second row for scribbling notes during performances. Sorry for sullying the High Art that is Dancing With the Stars, America! Bright side is that a certain editor now has photographic evidence of my diligence.

Aside from being caught writing in pencil (shudder!) on national television, being in the audience for the show is always fun. Not only do you get a good workout from all the standing up and sitting down and standing up and sitting down and encouraged enthusiastic clapping, but you also get a glimpse of all the magic that is not seen on camera. For instance, Derek and Julianne Hough’s mom was on set and danced with her son on stage during a commercial break. And Bruno Tonioli takes his judging very seriously, leaning way over the table to get a good look at everyone’s feet. And shout out to the warm-up artist who always clapped first, clapped longest and made sure the people in the balcony didn’t forget to cheer. Many current celebrities (Demi Moore, Milo Ventimiglia and Soleil Moon Frye) and former contestants (Amy Purdy, Melissa Rycroft, Antonio Sabàto Jr., Florence Henderson and Bethany Mota) were in attendance too, making it easier to seem cool while blithely cheering when the warm-up artist gave a Dancing With the Stars T-shirt to a 100-year-old woman in the audience. Good times were had by all, except for the star who had to leave the show at the end of the night.

Here’s what happened on Dancing With the Stars live:

Patti LaBelle and Artem Chigvintsev: During the opening package, Patti said she was excited to wear a bikini for the spring-break dance and then loudly yelled, “Psych!” Their quickstep was fun and lively, so lively that halfway through the performance one shoe went flying off her foot. So she danced with one shoe, much to the amusement of everyone. She later told me that she actually wanted both shoes to come off, but one got stuck, so she just went with it. Head judge Len Goodman said it best when he called her “cool by the pool,” laughingly adding that it was “the best dance of the night so far.” It was the only dance of the night, Len. 29/40

Nastia Liukin and Derek Hough: These two pros have raised the bar so high that it’s clear they are being judged on a different scale than the rest of the competitors. Their tango was fun to watch, especially because the Spring Break tie-in seemed to be “Barbecue Mishap” thanks to a set design that involved shooting flames followed by an intense blast of fog. The judges worried that Nastia was relying too much on her gymnastics training and not losing herself in the artistry of dance. After the show, I asked her what she planned to do with that critique and she said she had no idea. Derek had a few thoughts, though, but most of them involved copious amounts of alcohol. (Note: neither of them drink, so it should make for a fun night.) 34/40

Willow Shields and Mark Ballas: For their routine, Mark and Willow decided to do a Whiplash-themed salsa number to the song “Tequila.” Only on Dancing With the Stars, kids! Sadly, not one judge made a “not quite my tempo” joke, mostly because the routine was fast-paced fun that stuck to the beat. 34/40

Robert Herjavec and Kym Johnson: The Shark Tank star, who is used to success, was crushed by his low scores last week, and when he heard he had to do the jive, he was convinced the producers had it out for him. The routine set to “Surfin’ Safari” was a light-hearted romp, but unfortunately Robert’s timing was off again. Carrie Ann Inaba said, “All the steps were there, just not in the right time.” She softened the blow by pointing out that it was better than last week. 28/40

Noah Galloway and Sharna Burgess: Fight! Fight! The opening package showed Sharna snapping at the veteran during rehearsal. This upset Noah, because he believes Sharna is really nice and wants the world to know it. To prove that their chemistry is intact, they danced a sensual rumba that conjured up a lot of heat (mostly due to the faux campfire set up on stage). The judges used the words hip action a lot in complimenting Noah’s dancing and told him not to worry about the rehearsal footage. Best part of their number came later when the cameras were off and host Tom Bergeron squatted over the fake campfire, heating up his slacks and announcing, “I’m making Hot Pockets!” to no one in particular. 29/40

Rumer Willis and Val Chmerkovskiy: Rumer and Val were assigned the task of creating a jazz routine to Destiny Child’s “Bootylicious.” It’s a high bar to beat the women of Destiny’s Child on the dance floor, but Val managed to choreograph a memorable routine with Rumer bravely stepping in for Beyoncé. (She earned Patti LaBelle’s seal of approval by letting Patti pat the merchandise, so to speak.) The routine would have been applauded on So You Think You Can Dance, but some of the judges (Len mostly) thought it was too raunchy. He proclaimed, “It’s a ballroom not a bedroom!” Val agreed, but bravely noted that the producers assigned him that song and that dance and he just went with what he thought they wanted. Obviously Bruno loved the routine asking them to give him all the “hot and raunchy.” 32/40

Chris Soules and Witney Carson: The Bachelor was berated by Julianne last week for his lack of musicality, so to prove he had it, the producers whipped together a little montage of him dancing to “Let’s Hear it for the Boy” from Footloose, a movie with which Julianne is well acquainted. Chris applied his newfound musicality in his Viennese Waltz to Grease track “Hopelessly Devoted to You” — in a merry-go-round in a dense fog, because why not, right? The judges loved it, and Julianne high-fived him for his incredible improvement. 31/40

Riker Lynch and Allison Holker: It became clear that my neighbors were all related to Riker when they erupted in incredible loud cheers the moment he hit the stage for his Samba. As usual for Riker, the routine was fast and furious and nearly flawlessly executed. While Len thought he “moved like Spider-man,” which is apparently a bad thing, Bruno was effusive in his praise, alliterating an entire string of adjectives to great effect. Then he and Carrie Ann gave Riker 10s. 37/40

Team YOLO: Team captain Nastia chose Willow, Noah and Robert for her team and then promptly left, because she lives in New York and won’t be there for rehearsals. She returned a few days before showtime to discover they had choreographed a big beach party. The routine was light and airy and each of the solo numbers were solid, but the best part was when Mark Ballas kicked a beach ball squarely into the face of a tiny teenager who was part of a crowd gathered around the stage for the routine. The girl did an admirable job not flipping her lid or even flinching when it happened. The judges gave the team 39/40.

Team Trouble: Team captain Rumer invited Riker, Patti and Chris to dance on her team. They quickly settled on a Breakfast Club inspired school scene with Patti playing a strict teacher to a group of bratty teens. Unfortunately a prop chalkboard blocked most of the routine from my seat, but the parts that I could see were entertaining, especially Chris as a shirtless jock ripping open his letterman jacket and throwing Witney Carson in the air cheerleader style. 39/40

Who’s in Jeopardy: Patti, Riker, Robert and Noah. Noah and Riker were clearly filler, so they were sent back to safety quickly, leaving Robert and Patti to sweat it out.

Who Went Home: Patti LaBelle. The grand dame of Dancing With the Stars. When I spoke with her after the show she was very positive about the experience and wasn’t sorry to be going home at all. Viva LaBelle!

Watch John Oliver Deliver a Trademark Takedown of Patent Trolls

"At least trolls actually do something," said Oliver

John Oliver used his Last Week Tonight soapbox to deliver a searing take down of the U.S. patent system. Patents, or as Oliver calls them “legally binding dibs,” are an integral part of business, at least according to the judges on Shark Tank.

While patents are an essential protection against theft for inventors, there are those who abuse the system — the so-called patent trolls who stockpile patents and threaten possible infringers with frivolous lawsuits. Oliver thinks calling them “patent trolls” is insulting to trolls. “At least trolls actually do something,” he quips, “they control bridge access for goats and ask people fun riddles.”

Patent trolls force businesses to shell out tons of money, which can impede innovation, particularly in the software industry. Large companies, too, can hinder the success of small businesses by charging them huge sums to license patents that cover very simple ideas.

“This system is insane,” ranted Oliver. As usual, he reserves some ire for lawyers, noting that letting trial lawyers make decisions about “more baseless lawsuits” was the equivalent of “letting raccoons make laws about trash can placement.”

Watch John Oliver Get Martin Sheen to Do a Doomsday Video

Talk about perfect casting

A few months ago it was revealed that CNN had made a tape to be played in case of the end of the world. The news network’s doomsday video featured a marching band playing the religious dirge of a song “Nearer, My God, to Thee,” a tune that was reportedly played on the Titanic when (spoiler alert) it sank.

Last Week Tonight host John Oliver was convinced that “French-Canadian space mermaid” Celine Dion’s heartfelt ode “My Heart Will Go On” was the last song heard on the Titanic and when he learned that was not the case, he decided to take matters into his own hands and improve CNN’s video for them.

Who ya gonna call when you need an end-of the-world video? Former West Wing Commander in Chief, President Josiah Bartlet, a.k.a. Martin Sheen, naturally.

“Hello, I’m Martin Sheen,” the video begins, “and I’m afraid if you are watching this the End Times are upon us. Whether because of war, disease or a genetically modified dinosaur, our world is now only moments away from total annihilation.” The video, posted above, goes on to celebrate the greatest things about humanity’s time on earth. Like, oh, shark tunnels and Segways.

How Ari Millen Learned to Act With Himself After Joining Orphan Black‘s Clone Club

BBC America Ari Millen in Orphan Black

Luckily, Tatiana Maslany was around to help

When Ari Millen signed on to play Mark, a clean-cut member of the extremist Prolethean religious sect on the electrifying sci fi show Orphan Black, he had no idea that by the end of Season Two he would be the face of a new line of militaristic male clones. “It wasn’t until two weeks before we shot the season finale of season two that they let me know,” Millen says. “It was a big surprise to me too!”

The surprise was made even bigger due to the fact that Millen had originally been told that his character was going to die. Instead, in the show’s third season, which launches April 18 on BBC America, Millen plays not only Mark, but also Rudy, an unbalanced soldier with a serious facial scar; Seth, a mustachioed piece of muscle; and Miller, a soldier with a prosthetic leg. And there could be even more characters bearing Millen’s face as the mysteries of the male clone program, Project Castor, are revealed.

For Millen, who previously had small roles on Rookie Blue, The CW’s Reign and SyFy’s 12 Monkeys, his one-season arc has transformed into what could potentially be the role of a lifetime. Getting your acting dream job means a lot of hard work, though. “To say it isn’t a challenge would be a lie, but it’s a fun challenge,” says Millen. “To get on a show and get to play one character is a successful moment in any actor’s career. To get to express yourself creatively in several ways on the same show is a dream.”

After producers told him that his role was going to be drastically expanded (or cloned, if you will), Millen had to figure out, logistically as well as artistically, how to make it work. “Luckily I had the whole off-season to formulate it in my head and figure out who these guys were,” he says. “I wasn’t thrown into the deep end right away.”

He’s also fortunate in that he’s walking a path trailblazed by Tatiana Maslany, who plays an evolving number of clones on the show with a seeming effortlessness. Millen seems poised to follow suit, thanks in part to Maslany’s guidance. “She’s one of the most supportive people you would ever want to be teamed up with,” says Millen. “For me, I do a lot of learning visually. So at the clone dance party, I went in and I watched her maneuver through some of the technical aspects. I saw how she moved from one character to the other and I got a little idea of how to do it. Through season three, whenever I got the chance I would just watch. If I saw something that I hadn’t thought of, I would try it out and see if it worked for me.”

Another difficult task facing Millen this season is that while Maslany’s clones run the gamut of personality types, Millen’s clones are all cut from a similar tightly-wound military cloth, making differentiating between them even more challenging. “The biggest challenge for me is, Project Castor grew up self aware. Because of that, they are a lot more similar than Project Leda. So I tried to find to find small little differences between the similarities,” says Millen. “Sometimes it was hard to switch between them, but luckily I had very patient screen partners, and if a scene came out too Rudy and I needed to make it more Mark, we would just do another take.”

In each scene, to determine how each of the clones he plays will interact with all the other clones he’s playing, Millen has to plan ahead. “Normally, I will approach a scene and think, ‘Okay, I’m this character and this where they want to go and this is what they want to get at.’ The huge challenge this season is planning both sides of the scene, making sure that both voices are heard, because when you shoot the scene, you can only do one character at a time. At the beginning, I would sometimes forget that in a few hours I would have to be on the other side, talking to myself,” says Millen. “I’ve had to learn to give and take with myself, which is really weird.”

Millen works with a body double, Nick Abraham, who stands in for him while he maps how he and his clones will act out a scene. “We would discuss the scene beforehand, run it with Nick, and run it again with the tennis balls,” says Millen. “That was really interesting. I don’t think you can prepare for acting, or reacting, to a tennis ball. It’s a really weird process.”

David Hasselhoff’s New Video Is a Perfectly Ridiculous 80s Throwback

The surprise ode to '80s action flicks is a must watch

If you’re going to watch one music video today — or ever — make it the surprise video dropped by none other than David Hasselhoff.

The video for “True Survivor” — which is from the Kickstarter-funded film Kung Fury — is straight out of the star’s Knight Rider days and while it doesn’t have his computerized car K.I.T.T., it does have a white Lamborghini, an overactive fog machine, fingerless gloves and a slick beat.

The clip mixes up everything from keytars to 8-bit hacking to dinosaurs, vikings, flamethrowers, roundhouse-kicking cops, people walking away from explosions without looking back and so much more. And naturally, it all ends with Hasselhoff riding a dinosaur into the sunset. The video bodes well for Kung Fury, David Sandberg’s throwback martial arts comedy about a vengeful cop who travels back in time to kill the Nazis, but end up bringing in vikings and Thor to finish the deed. With a plot like that, it should be no surprise the film exceeded its Kickstarter goal of $200,000, and brought in well over $600,000.

Video Imagines Titanic Movie as an 8-Bit Video Game

It looks like Jack has stepped in for Mario

Love for Titanic will go on (like Celine Dion’s heart), thanks to this 8-bit retelling of the tragic story.

Cinefix, who have also made 8-bit versions of The Fast and the Furious and Wes Anderson’s The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, have turned their creative energies on James Cameron’s 1997 Titanic, which starred Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet as a lovestruck couple on an ill-fated cruise.

Now fans of the heart-wrenching saga of Jack and Rose can relive their adventures aboard the unsinkable ship that turned out to be 100% sinkable in a fun 8-bit video game inspired video. Thanks to the retro format, as you watch the Jack and Rose avatars run the gamut of the doomed ship in a bid to survive, it looks like Jack has stepped in for Mario as he works to save the princess, and it would not be a surprise to see Donkey Kong show up and re-arrange the deck chairs.

Watch now, but if you haven’t seen the film (get on that), then beware: There are definitely spoilers.
