Elijah Wood doesn't think he's much like Ryan, the character he plays on the FX comedy "Wilfred"--at least he hopes not. "Ryan's really struggling most of the time and is constantly questioning himself and the world around him and is not always in the most comfortable of places," he said Monday, "so hopefully none of that has rubbed off on me.

" (Update: I see from his Twitter feed he made it to Lou Malnati's.)

I was a fan of "The Borgias" during its first season, even though creator Neil Jordan occasionally got tripped up as he jumped from big-screen movies to writing a weekly TV series. Based on the first four episodes of the new season, I'd say Jordan has figured things out. "The Borgias" ( 9 p.m. Sunday, Showtime; 3.5 stars out of 4 ) still overflows with delicious intrigues, sex and deadly politics, but it now has an energy and constant forward momentum the first season lacked. Last season we saw Rodrigo Borgia (Jeremy Irons,...

Darth Maul returns to "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" this fall, and he looks pissed. Everyone's favorite Sith badass looms large in the first trailer for Season 5 of the animated series, which will premiere in September on Cartoon Network. "Our combined strength will be rewarded," Maul tells his brother, Savage Opress, in the trailer, "and Kenobi, this Sith pretender, Dooku, and all our enemies will fall. " That's quite a group of enemies the red devil has in his sights, but the trailer doesn't stop with Maul's checklist.
