Independent film distributor Miramax Films Corp. won another important legal round against Sony Pictures Entertainment over ads for Sony's hit film "I Know What You Did Last Summer." Miramax began alleging last fall that Sony's Columbia Pictures unit and producer Mandalay Entertainment marketed the film before its release last October with a misleading campaign that said the movie was "from the creator of Scream," the popular Miramax-distributed franchise.

For months now people have been anticipating "The Vampire Diaries" as a CW-ized version of "Twilight" with a bunch of sensitive young lovelies yearning and burning for danger, romance and the ultimate penetration. In between bouts of underage drinking, texting, girl-bonding, and the inevitable minor-key whine of a soundtrack, that is. "True Blood Lite" or "Transylvania 90210." And you know what? It is. Almost exactly. But this is not a bad thing, not a bad thing at all. Because "Vampire Diaries" knows precisely what it is -- a Gothic romance -- and doesn't try to be anything else.

"Bates Motel": It is impossible for me to overstate how truly fabulous Vera Farmiga's performance is in the crazy, creepy yet emotionally resonant prequel to "Psycho. " The setting is "Twin Peaks"-evocative and the writing is terrific, if a bit overly concerned with making every person in the mythical White Pine Bay, Ore., (which is really Canada) Not Quite What They Seem. All the actors are solid, especially Freddie Highmore as a young sweater-tugging, fugue-state-experiencing Norman and Max Thieriot as his older black-sheep brother Dylan.

In Fox's bloody new drama "The Following," Kevin Bacon plays one of the more oft-used characters in thriller fiction. Alcoholic and emotionally detached, his character is former FBI agent Ryan Hardy, who has never quite recovered from his dance with the devil. Once upon a time, Hardy was the lead agent on a string of grisly murders at the fictional Winslow College. When he first encountered Joe Carroll (James Purefoy), he too fell under the charismatic English professor's spell, using him as a source to help unravel the literary clues left at the crime scenes.

Spooky, mysterious, well-acted "Glory Days" is a nice midseason addition to the WB schedule, introducing Mike Dolan (Eddie Cahill) as a 25-year-old greeted by anger, suspicion and turbulence upon returning to his hometown four years after loosely depicting its residents in a best-selling mystery novel connected to his father's supposedly accidental death. Keep your eye here on "supposedly." The town, actually an island in the Pacific Northwest, is Glory; the title of Mike's book is "Glory Days."
