DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow Season 1: 15 Wtf Moments From ‘White Knights’

The CW

With its latest offering, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow takes the action behind the Iron Curtain as our rag-tag team wind up in 1986 and in the middle of Cold War tensions between the Us and the Ussr.

Again tracking Vandal Savage, the group have to deal with the familiar threat of Chronos whilst also trying to find Dr. Volstok, a woman who is working on something for Savage that could change the history of mankind.

Away from outside threats, tensions are also mounting within the group, with Martin Stein and Jax at each other’s throats, not to mention Kendra Saunders having seemingly lost the plot a little. Still, it’s a good thing that the always-stable Sara Lance is on hand to handle Kendra.

In another nice twist, White Knights manages to give us our first real look at a Time Master who isn’t Rip Hunter.

Ex On The Beach: 9 things we learned from tonight's premiere

Ex On The Beach returned tonight - and thank goodness, because we badly needed a few lessons in dating. Pleasingly, the new cast continue the trend of being pretty much the worst teachers possible. Read on to find out what the eight 'sexy singles' taught us tonight...

1. The new Ex On The Beach cast started out strong.

Morgan's ideal woman has an hourglass figure, no body fat, a beautiful face and "knows how to use a knife and fork". Aim high, Morgan!

Melissa has been "completely unsatisfied" by men over the years, hates "bitchy" women ("I'll be a bigger bitch back") and kind of won us over by sneering at Morgan's eyebrows/accent/general being.

Connor says "naughty" a lot. Like, a lot. Like, stop saying "naughty". "I've banged probably about 26 birds at the moment. Not too bad, considering I'm only 18. When I'm 30, I want to have shagged at least 30 girls.

Best of Late Night TV: Kerry Washington's 'Box of Lies,' Denzel Washington and Lenny Kravitz's Boat Trip (Video)

  • Moviefone
If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

"Scandal" star Kerry Washington and Jimmy Fallon tried to trick each other in a fun game called "Box of Lies." Weirdly enough, the line "In my box ... is a pumpkin with spaghetti in it..." was actually true! Also, it turns out Kerry is a big "Game of Thrones" fan. She started watching because her parents like it. She was planning to just make fun of them, but now she's a true GoT fan, and she even cooked her mom a GoT-themed dinner. Then some guy in the audience booed Jimmy because he's not caught up on the show.

At the end of the second video, Kerry shared a teaser
